What's a better indicator of what's a lot is the "hours played in the last 2 weeks" thing. Then you can figure on average how much you play per day.

I'd go with the 470. Substantially higher frame rate for only $50 extra. Screw the noise crap.

You'll have to copy the URL.

Always good to use these threads as a chance to clean up my desktop. I really wish I had a widescreen though, so many backgrounds are specifically made for it.

Wish I could, but the thing about that is; I'm actually not the Kraken, rather I just use it as an alias on the internet.

in What's the origin of your username? Post #285942
Kraken is a large mythical sea-monster squid like creature. I'm unaware of its origin. It was featured in one of the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, which I haven't seen.

I came across this name playing the game earthbound, as it appears as a boss battle in the game.

Because I took a gap year and went to europe, was stressed from engineering work, and also broke my toe.

I'm back in the game now though and my gym upgraded and got a foam pit and a tumble track, and a trampoline, so expect a sampler from me in the future. Also I'm guessing you're GSimpson.

They also offered me a job there, and I have to teach a 1 hour tricking class a week, and I get $45 worth of training time a week. For free.

As far as I know, it's a good store because for many of the products you don't pay for some of the fabrication costs as you put it together yourself. It's also mostly nice simplistic furniture that isn't overly flashy.

Crap, not awesome at all. I totally dislike the way they completely neglect any real reason to as why they are doing it; advertisement. There's nothing wrong with admitting that they were just trying to make an ad, even just for a viral video.

Yes Trapt, they're exactly the ones I use, they only have 8800GT's though. The cases are indeed fucking monstrous, they look so stupid.

Rim the lighting isn't usually that crappy, I only had pointlights in the map as worklights at the time.

Skals, it is better for pretty much any type of game I can think of. Obviously source can still can get the job done, but it's just getting a bit old and outdated now. As much as I would like to map for source or goldsource, I just can't deny how easy UDK is.

here you are http://www.the-blueprints.com/

EDIT: Crollo, it doesn't one hit kill to the arms or legs, and it has no aimer, it only has 10 bullets per clip, it shoots incredibly slow, it costs a lot of money. M4 and AK-47 are much easier to aim as they aren't scoped views and have an insane rate of fire, the AK-47 will take anyone out in one hit to the head even with a helmet as the m4a1 will do about 90 damage and bink they player very hard meaning their aimer flies into the sky, and then you simply have to land another shot to take them out. Not to mention the AK-47 costs 2.5K which really makes it the greatest gun in the game, for its amazing power, accuracy, fire rate, large clip and reload speed.

Not to mention it'd be useless if it didn't kill people in one hit to the body because it'd just be inferior to the scout, which gives the player the fastest move speed in the game.

I used to play CS competitively. The only guns good players use are:

USP
glock
deagle
mp5
AK47
m4a1
galil
famas
AWP

and the terrorist autosniper is actually very powerful after one of the last changes to 1.6.

all the other guns are rubbish.

EDIT: None of the guns are by any means cheap, if you think that, you're simply a bad player.

Maybe if 2manyvideo games was smart enough he would have just surveyed samples from other old threads, from different websites, who's users differ in terms of demographics. Judging by his alias he probably frequents forums which pertain to gaming, which from my experience means he's going to be researching a group of competitive young males who strive for an elite title.

edit: for crying out loud crollo, I'm just going to completely ignore your post as you are just ignoring mine.

Once again I agree with soup miner. We may be giving him valuable substantial data, but it's all null and void really, I wouldn't have said it, had he done his research correctly.

in Forum Consistency Experiment Post #284155
I agree with soup miner whole heartedly, you told us about the experiment in the first post technically rendering any data you collect in this thread inconsistent to regular forum posting trends. Should have done a blind testing instead of telling us in the first post.

edit: for the sake of the thread, my first pokemon was squirtle.

Double edit: this thread is now about how OP screwed up his research.

in examples of goldsource forest maps? Post #283996
Looking good! If you're going for spooky add some fog in, but it's important to do the fog right, look up the map frigid by the_hunter I believe for some good fog. What's great about fog in this case is it actually hides your eyes from lackluster details, which are inevitable in this engine. Essentially it will make a small area feel larger, granted you can't see 3 vertical edges of the map!
