Still no upvotes today :'(
@fredley I am sorry that you are upvoteless
@DaveMcClelland Yeah I'd rather farm other bosses and hope they drop it. Unless that's the general drop % from raid bosses and Doc Mercy has a substantially higher drop rate...
I hear the Infinity's actually a bit annoying to use too, because it's recoil is in an infinity loop pattern. I'm not sure how wide the firing pattern is though
@RonanForman still no server...
@fredley still no upvotes
@kalina :(
2:08 PM
@fredley :D
@kalina D:

@fredley <('o')>
I have breached 200 rep on SciFi
by asking 3 bad questions
@kalina (~_~;)
2:09 PM
@OrigamiRobot @fbueckert I finished Inferno last night. It was almost too easy.
I am unimpressed
let me put it into context
my highest voted question on Arqade is 14, over the space of months
and it's a question about Steam, which always gets upvoted lots
my highest voted question on SciFi is 11, over 18 hours
and it's a terrible question that I asked on 2 SE sites, got whined at, had discussion on, got deleted off one of the sites, etc
so... screw you guys, I'm moving to scifi
don't try and stop me
oh ok, you didn't try
@fredley Apparently Tom is playing on it.
But I can't log on either.
Q: Change XML Start Bias Values for Dutch in Civ 5 Gods and Kings

GoofBallI would like to modify the start bias values for the Dutch in Civilization 5 Gods and Kings however I cannot find the path to the XML file that determines the start bias. Usually the XML file for each civ would be located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\sid meier's civilizati...

@RonanForman @ThomasMcDonald
@fredley I've restarted it now. So its working again.
@StrixVaria On MP0?
@RonanForman Hooray.
@RonanForman Can I have shell access so I can restart without pinging people?
@fredley You'll need to ask @TimStone for that.
2:18 PM
@RonanForman @TimStone
@OrigamiRobot Yeah I haven't messed with MP yet.
I turned on the option after I killed Diablo but I couldn't immediately figure out how to set it.
Then I went to bed.
@StrixVaria I can beat Inferno on MP3 or 4 I think. No higher. I have nearly 100k unbuffed DPS.
@OrigamiRobot I have 50k on my WD.
I'll try MP1 tonight and see how that goes.
@OrigamiRobot 100k unbuffed doesn't sound that special, have they rebalanced the game or something?
I don't want to jump too far at once.
@kalina 100k is a shitton.
2:20 PM
@kalina It's not, but it used to be.
In 1.0.3 I had ~250k dps with sharpshooter, I think it was like 90k unbuffed in badish gear
well, before 1.0.3
I can sustain about 140k
I quit in 1.0.3
My Monk was doing Act 2 inferno before it was nerfed with 20k dps.
Windows needs better window management
2:21 PM
@kalina You can't take the sharpshooter peak as your DPS. It resets after you hit and you have to build your crit chance back up.
@OrigamiRobot Yeah Sharpshooter is dumb.
@OrigamiRobot if you remember before 1.0.3 it didn't drop immediately, and nethertentacles could pass through groups for several seconds before it dropped
was more than enough time to kill the group
(it was why it was nerfed)
Morning, Bridge
Or maybe I just need a second monitor
2:23 PM
even then I am talking about having 90k base dps nearly a year ago
But ugh, this sucks.
@YiJiang'sEvilClone multiple monitors ftw
I think 3 is the best number for productivity
@kalina Right, 90k isn't that high.
ok, so everybody is running around with 200k dps and Blizzard nerfed the game?
@kalina I didn't say that.
Just because it's not high doesn't mean it's low.
2:25 PM
@OrigamiRobot I don't understand this. I have 50k dps on my WD with Pierce the Veil and every single item I find is utter trash compared to what I'm wearing.
yes it does!
How am I supposed to double my DPS from here?
and - Blizzard did nerf the game didn't they?
@OrigamiRobot In assembler, we use Branch If Not High to mean nearly the same thing as Branch If Low
@kalina No, it doesn't. 100k is about what it took to beat the game pre MP
@SaintWacko That's because you're talking about binary.
2:26 PM
@OrigamiRobot I know this to be wrong
100k DPS might be what it took you to beat the game
I know many people who did it with 50-75k
@OrigamiRobot :P
mainly witchdoctors granted, but it was before their pets were buffed
I only had 65k dps on my wizard when I killed diablo
I wonder what they're going to call Windows once they made windows obsolete
@YiJiang'sEvilClone tablets
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Pane
2:28 PM
@fbueckert and anyone else! I have learned a new thing about the revamping of Devil May Cry! Now I must play it! <_<
@StrixVaria That's the whole problem. Drops are garbage. That's why they are adding the ability to craft best in slot items.
@BenBrocka The new logo does look awfully like that
Also they made windows obsolete like the Ngage transformed gaming
I pinged @fbueckert directly because of his hatred for series revamps. =P
2:29 PM
@BenBrocka We could all start using tiling window manager from now on and be a lot happier
@YiJiang'sEvilClone it's four panes though, it should just be one. But there are other panes behind it you can't see and you have to switch panes to do most things
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Or I could just use Windows 7. Or ideally, windows 8 with the start menu back in and Metro not required
Actually, Metro is a tiling window manager, in a sense
@kalina It doesn't matter. There is such a thing as average.
I don't need a window manager, I'm prefectly fine with win 7. Most windows are either maximized, half-screen width (<3 that feature in win 7) or their own wierd not-large size, like Task Manager
Are my messages getting through? <_< My Internet is spotty here.
2:32 PM
@Fluttershy No
@SaintWacko =(
@SaintWacko Also, if you're looking at an input, what about 2-4V?
Is it bad that I saw an article about a new artificial Gasoline and immediate searched for (and found) references to OILIX in the comments?
@Fluttershy Yep, can't see a thing you're saying
Anyone remember @Fluttershy? Haven't heard from in days
2:32 PM
@OrigamiRobot What?
@BenBrocka =(
@BenBrocka I think he turned into a tree
@SaintWacko IIRC, the cutoff for a signal to be considered low in many chips is about 1.5V and high is about 4V.
@YiJiang'sEvilClone I'd like to be a tree.
@BenBrocka Isn't that the name of some small horse?
2:34 PM
Anything in between is indeterminate
Guys! Guys! I beat one of the games on my list last night! =D
@Fluttershy At least you didn't... thanks for fixing that and spoiling my joke.
@OrigamiRobot average?!
@Powerlord Happy to help. <3
I don't deal with averages, I deal with extremes!
2:35 PM
@OrigamiRobot Oh, no, this isn't looking directly at the voltages. This is looking at two memory locations and comparing their contents
@kalina Well, you were born in the 90s...
@OrigamiRobot now you're just stating facts
@OrigamiRobot :|
@SaintWacko I know what you meant. But if the value of those registers came from an input, it might not be accurate.
2:36 PM
scifi is brilliant, I just asked a question about a jumper that a character wears and it gets upvoted
@OrigamiRobot What is that supposed to mean?
@OrigamiRobot Kids these days. shakes head
I need to ask a Cloud Atlas question on SciFi, but I really don't want to add any positive contributions to that site.
@TimStone hey, I cease being a teenager in 27 days
2:37 PM
(When you tell someone "well you were born in the 90s" and I realize that I was born in the 70s...)
@OrigamiRobot Was SunnyD extreme?
@kalina Sigh...
not that I'm counting down or anything
@Fluttershy Yes.
@kalina 26 days, 23 hours, 59 minutes...
2:38 PM
@Fluttershy whatever happened to SunnyD?
@kalina Hmm, @AshleyNunn should totally bake us all a cake for your birthday.
@OrigamiRobot What about Dunkaroos?
@TimStone mmm cake
@TimStone Ooh, she should make one for mine, too, in 8 days
2:39 PM
Cakes for everyone!
Oh, wow, it hadn't registered that my birthday was so close
@kalina Your birthday is near mine? Gross.
@TimStone Are you saying @AshleyNunn is a princess?
@OrigamiRobot :'(
@OrigamiRobot Not trying to prove a point. I'm just trying to make you sad by reminding you of all the things we lost.
2:40 PM
@Fluttershy You can still get Dunkaroos.
@OrigamiRobot Waffle Crisp?
@OrigamiRobot Dunkaroos sound like a cross between a wallaby and donuts
@Powerlord Why, is she in another castle?
Good morning, Bridge
@fbueckert Morning! See my pings to you! >_>
2:41 PM
@TimStone No, that stopped happening years ago. Now she just invites you to the castle for cake.
@Fluttershy Nope.
@BenBrocka Terranigma. Fun game.
@YiJiang'sEvilClone This is not terribly far off.
@Fluttershy I saw. You should really know better. :P
@OrigamiRobot Waffle Crisp wasn't extreme?
2:41 PM
@Powerlord Ah, excellent.
@fbueckert afternoon
@fbueckert Just make sure you use the versions patched to run at normal speed.
@fbueckert Just hear me out!
Oh, these things. Yeah, cute.
Uuuugh I hate when windows tells me I must get permission from myself to delete a folder
2:42 PM
They're Hello Kitty branded around here. Quite delicious
@Fluttershy I was saying nope I am not sad about that.
@Fluttershy For some reason this reminded me of French Toast Crunch, which apparently does still exist in Canada.
DmC: Devil May Cry wasn't developed by Capcom, making a revamp perfectly acceptable. It was developed by Ninja Theory. They are, in my opinion, among the greats when it comes to story telling. They developed Heavenly Sword, and Enslaved: Odyssey to the West; the latter being one of my all-time favorite games. Thusly, DmC: Devil May Cry must be played.
@BenBrocka You must get permission before posting this message
Whee, answering scifi book identification questions!
2:44 PM
@OrigamiRobot Aaah. You must be specific! I cannot see replies. Only pings.
@BenBrocka It appears that you're attempting to delete a system folder. Would you like my assistance?
@Fluttershy I haven't played either of those games.
Weird, it wasn't the permissions nightmare I thought it was, it was because a file was open. Why it gave me a completely inappropriate error message I'll never know
@Fluttershy You're the one who changed the purpose of your statements!
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Or using Vista
2:44 PM
@fbueckert omg you need to play Enslaved! It is amazing! And it has Andy Serkis in it.
@Fluttershy Heavenly sword was good, shame they haven't made a sequel yet
@SaintWacko answer my scifi sweater identification question
@OrigamiRobot What are you talking about? You aren't making any sense.
@BenBrocka Please tell me you've played Enslaved.
@kalina A red shirt?

@OrigamiRobot Not trying to prove a point. I'm just trying to make you sad by reminding you of all the things we lost.
2:47 PM
@Fluttershy Hadn't heard of it actually
@OrigamiRobot Not seeing your end-goal here. What are you trying to prove?
@Fluttershy I think he's still stuck in "argue with kalina" mode, he might need a reboot
@BenBrocka O_O Go play it! You can get it at GameStop for like $10, and it must be played by all!
Q: What is the deal with Daniel Jackson's sweater?

kalinaDuring Season 6 of Stargate SG1 after Daniel Jackson has died and ascended, he appears multiple times in a variety of episodes. In the vast majority of these appearances he is wearing a cream/beige sweater. This is the sweater I am talking about: Prior to this point in the series I don't rem...

@Fluttershy Who's Andy Serkis?
2:48 PM
@Fluttershy ew physical stores
@fbueckert >_> Gollum....
@Fluttershy That you changed the purpose from "Extreme Identification" to "Make OrigamiRobot Sad" and I responded appropriately.
@Fluttershy I would like to point out I haven't seen the movies.
I'll try to keep it in mind but I have other stuff to finish first
Except for the first one.
2:48 PM
@BenBrocka I mean... You can find it online. I think it might even be on XBL Games on Demand.
I just saw Doctor Who: Angels in Manhattan
it was so dumb it hurt
@Sterno Yes!
It's based on the old Chinese legend Journey to the West, apparently
@Sterno Yea they overplayed the angels something awful.
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Correct. And it is a beautiful game.
2:49 PM
How the hell does the entire city of new york not manage to see the statue of liberty move that far?
and that's not even the dumbest bit
@Sterno mmm braaaaaaaaiiiiiiinnnnnnnnssssssssss
@Sterno Forget Angels in Manhattan and make room for Souffle Girl!
@Sterno Nevermind the fact that the State of Liberty isn't an angel.
...is that not how all Doctor Who is? I only saw the old series but what I saw was the campiest bit of camp that ever camped
@Sterno Mmmhm, I thought that was the biggest plot hole
2:50 PM
Plus, I thought just taking photos of videos of angels let them get all... angel-y in the videos or something
I'm pretty sure there have been one or two photos of the statue of liberty
@Fluttershy Says who?
@Sterno Yea it's like they threw out the whole "an image of an angel becomes an angel" which was already dumb.
@Sterno Remember in Blink when the Doctor tricked the angels into looking at each other?
@OrigamiRobot the only angel in this plane of reality is me, so by process of elimination alone the statue of liberty can't be
@kalina You will always be the same grape juice stain to me <3
@kalina I disagree with that. >_>
2:52 PM
Or is it this one
user image
PLUS, are they trapped in a hotel room or not? If so, their life was awful, and how did they manage to publish the book? If not, why not just DRIVE TO LA and have the Doctor pick them up there instead?
@Fluttershy aww :(
@OrigamiRobot why am I a grape juice stain?
@kalina was*
@Sterno The book was River's. Published after the fact
@OrigamiRobot why was I a grape juice stain?
2:53 PM
@YiJiang'sEvilClone By Amy. Who wrote the afterword
@kalina I don't know why you picked the gravatar you did.
@OrigamiRobot that was an angel, stop being blind
@Sterno Nevermind all that. =P In Blink, the Doctor stopped the angels by tricking them into looking at each other. Watch Angels Take Manhattan again, and count how many times the angels are looking directly at one another.
@kalina Grape juice stain.
@OrigamiRobot angel
2:54 PM
The book forms a closed time loop, I think. Or not.
@Fluttershy Or how often they're frozen even when no one is looking at them
I never really understood the time travel mechanic in Doctor Who
@kalina Oh I get it. You're calling me angel. That's sweet.
@Sterno Or that.
@OrigamiRobot nope, I was correcting you, stop trying to confuse me
Whatever holds the image of an angel........
4 mins ago, by OrigamiRobot
@Sterno Yea it's like they threw out the whole "an image of an angel becomes an angel" which was already dumb.
I think Doctor Who has taken a huge decline in quality since Steven Moffat took over as series lead. Although I thought series 5 was really well done, series 6 was terrible. Series 7 was better, but not by much.
@YiJiang'sEvilClone Angel is a jerk. =( He's so mean.
@Wipqozn THANK YOU
@Fluttershy His (her?) name is ironic
2:56 PM
I know supposedly character development, interactions, blah blah blah are supposed to be the real point of Doctor Who and don't get bogged down by the logic, but come on, writers, at least try to cover at least the really major inconsistencies
Bridge, you're crazy. I'm going to work.
The entire "The Doctor Dies" plot in series 6 was terrible, and filled with plot hole after plot hole.
@TimStone fastest stars in the west
@Wipqozn I love Moffat. All the best episodes are by Moffat.
I watched the first 3 seasons of the new dr who because you guys told me to and I thought they were crap
2:57 PM
@OrigamiRobot Moffat makes an excellent writer, but as show lead I don't think he's doing a good job.
and then I stopped watching it
@OrigamiRobot You aren't gonna call him butthurt? You called me butthurt when I said exactly what he just said.
The fact that @Wipqozn is butthurt goes without saying.
You're all butthurt.
scifi allow people to randomly talk crap in their comments?
2:59 PM
@BenBrocka Do you have an Xbox 360?
Doctor Who has always had plot holes, but they've increased significantly with with series 6 onward. It just reeks of lazy writing.
@Fluttershy No, I have basically everything except that
The season 5 finale where he gets out of the super prison box because shut up that's why made me angry.
Was gonna offer to send you my copy of Enslaved to play. =(
