Q: What is BF3's capability when dealing with LAG?

giulioBecause upto 24 players in PS3 (64 players in PC) are scattered around the globe during a match, does BF3 balance gameplay to minimise lag issues by universally setting the ping response time for all connected players in a match ? For example if you have a range of players in a match with betwee...

@spugsley Just post the link or use the upload button....
You are just scared. @Fluttershy back me up here!
5:08 AM
@OrigamiRobot You seem to be doing okay yourself.
@OrigamiRobot I'll back you up, but mostly because I like causing trouble.
@OrigamiRobot rather not see horse pony porn
I could just derail this whole thing.
@OrigamiRobot what was she in besides Firefly?
5:09 AM
@NickT Warehouse 13
Who is that?
@OrigamiRobot she was?
@NickT One episode.
5:10 AM
@OrigamiRobot Danerys Targaryen
@Fluttershy Is that a promise or a threat?
@OrigamiRobot I meant as a regular
@NickT Boring
Commencing derailment!
@OrigamiRobot No. So wrong
5:11 AM
@Fluttershy So cute. XD

33 mins ago, by Fluttershy
You were saying?
@Fluttershy this is between me and @OrigamiRobot you don't count!
@spugsley Harsh...
5:16 AM
so where is this conversation going; where will it end; do we care
Oh how I love Emma Stone. I don't think I can compete with that
I will end you!
5:21 AM
I got pinged, and found a long list of attractive photos instead.
I am okay with this.
Oh no @spugsley. Here comes your "friend"
@RavenDreamer you will suffer for the greater good?
@AshleyNunn If I must.
5:22 AM
@OrigamiRobot U JELLY!?!?!
@spugsley turbs
I have a song from Sailor Moon stuck in my head
You need to watch FLCL.
@OrigamiRobot FLCL?
@AshleyNunn Fooly Cooly!
5:29 AM
@Fluttershy idk what that is
I started watching FLCL and then it didn't make any sense so I went back to shows that made sense
@murgatroid99 this
@AshleyNunn It's an anime that... really makes no sense. But is fun.
@Fluttershy I literally could not watch the entire series because I had no idea what was going on. And it's only like 6 episodes long
Giant robots erupting from people's heads and people fighting with guitars.
Whats not to get?
5:32 AM
@OrigamiRobot And a city destroying iron...
but it seemed like there was a plot or something, but I didn't get it
@Fluttershy And most of the robots are hand shaped
@murgatroid99 Something to do with an evil robot God and a city destroying iron.
@Fluttershy Like a clothes iron?
@AshleyNunn Yes.
5:34 AM
@Fluttershy Oh, I am so confused
@AshleyNunn But giant.
@AshleyNunn Watch it. You wont be less confused.
I dont know if that is a good thing or a bad thing
5:36 AM
@OrigamiRobot digimon?
@NickT Nope. FLCL.
@OrigamiRobot What is this i dont even
@OrigamiRobot Is that the episode where it pooped him out?
@Fluttershy Which time?
is that the one with the crazy girl who like batted away a meteor with a baseball bat?
5:37 AM
@OrigamiRobot Where he actually looked like Larry Jr. poop.
@Fluttershy No this was Brittle Bullet. The one with the hand robot with hand fingers.
With a gun in each handfinger
@OrigamiRobot Oh. Right...
IIRC, I don't think context helps
Who wants to hear the most soothing music ever?
@Fluttershy Mememememe
5:42 AM
@NickT Yea that's where Naota gets his guitar. Pretty straightforward.
@AshleyNunn Don't read comments
@Fluttershy Why not?
Because it's YouTube.
@AshleyNunn Spoilers. Unless you've already beaten Bastion.
@Fluttershy No, I havent
@Fluttershy I could listen to this forever
5:45 AM
@AshleyNunn Bastion, to me, is in the same category as Shadow of the Colossus. A masterpiece of video games and art that should be experienced by everyone.
@Fluttershy I will have to check it out then
Sleep is for the weak!
@spugsley GOODNIGHT!
5:47 AM
and good luck
I like a lot of music from anime; kinda wish there was more stuff like it but with (coherent, not-ESL) English lyrics
@NickT Intro-music to HSotD and FMA are awesome.
@Fluttershy which FMA
6:02 AM
@Fluttershy HSotD?
Q: Age of Empires 3 Direct3d error

Gareth JonesI play AoE3 fine on my 1080p screen at home (at 1920x1080) however when i try to run it at school, i get an error stating: Initialization Failed Direct3D initialization failed. Possible causes: Old or corrupted graphics driver. Direct3D improperly installed. Hardware acceleration disabled. Star...

Q: How to reliably hurt dwarves without killing them?

AnnaI've been trying to hurt dwarves, for my healthcare dwarf to practice on, by building a retracting bridge, stationing a squad there, and then retracting the bridge. If the fall is just 1z, i.e. the bridge is on the level right above the ground, the dwarves just get stunned and not damaged. If th...

@NickT The first one. Not familiar with Brotherhood.
@AshleyNunn High School of the Dead
@Fluttershy Ah. Can you tell I dont watch much anime? XD
@AshleyNunn Not at all. =P
@Fluttershy I did watch Bleach for quite a while...
6:06 AM
@AshleyNunn I love Bleach
@Fluttershy I stopped watcing because I felt like I would never get caught up
but I did like it
@AshleyNunn I just forgot where I was and didn't wanna rewatch 250+ episodes
@Fluttershy Somehow, I do not blame you
@Fluttershy some of the BLEACH intros are catchy;
7:00 AM
Q: How do I get a turbo-boost at the start of the race?

galacticninjaIn one of the loading screens, a tip says "Hit ACCELERATE at just the right moment during the countdown to get a TURBO-BOOST start": When's the "right moment" and what are techniques or tips to increase the chances that I hit the accelerate button at the right moment? Does the "right moment" di...

7:20 AM
are there any (major) games that are compiled for 64-bit machines?
When thinking memorable anime openings, I seem to remember the opening for Gantz
@NickT Not sure. Does this list count?
@NickT Also, I've read GTA4 in a few places.
1 hour later…
8:51 AM
9:02 AM
The best part was when youtube played this video as the advert before I could watch this very video.
9:23 AM
fucking audio drivers
I suspend and they crash
and everything trying to use sound hangs
In Windows 7 that would also mean the "Shutting down..." screen which would try to play the logoff sound
even the taskbar right now is fucked up :|
9:50 AM
@badp that's quite a comprehensive fuck-up you've got there
Q: Rogue reforge for pve/pvp

FofoleI am wondering which is the best reforging for rogue on pve gear, and which is on pvp gear. I know for pve first should be hit rating to 8% and then the rest but I don't know if this applies to pvp as well. What I ask for is for subtetly 8/2/31 for pvp and combat for pve. Also, I'm not even sure...

10:06 AM
@fredley rebooting fixes it though
10:19 AM
anyone else seen this?
I love this addon
Q: Which rare drops can drop already enchanted?

Mr SmoothI have a zombie spawner set up to farm exp, and I also have a skeleton spawner set up to do the same. Because I'm using them as exp farms (getting them down to half a heart and then punching them to death), I also occasionally get rare drops from them both. Around about a quarter of the bows th...

Q: How do you use the Hasati infantry unit in Total War: Rome?

user357320I'm having difficulty controlling the Hasati light infantry in TW Rome. Are they more suited for standing put or attacking? When should I use guard mode? Why do they always throw there spears first when attacking (slowing them down)?

Protip: Bastion's soundtrack is on Bandcamp: supergiantgames.bandcamp.com listening here is much better than on YouTube
10:36 AM
@YiJiang Haven't played Bastion. Thankfully it's now available on the MAc as well so I can play it on my MacBook rather than my ageing PC
@JohnoBoy I grabbed it when it was on 75% (or 66%?) off on Steam a week ago
The other game that was on offer then was Dustforce
Finished Botanicula yesterday. Nice little game
(This week's offer is Portal 2 at 66% off!)
Can't remeber the last time I finished played a PC game latley
@JohnoBoy Finished that a while ago, not sure if I want to play it again
There are a number of secrets I missed on the first playthrough
10:38 AM
@YiJiang I got Portal 2 for steam with my PS3 copy, but haven't played it since the Peer Review DLC came out
@YiJiang I finished it with 106 cards. I don't think I'll play it again any time soon
Maybe I'll try Machinarium again though, Samorost 1 & 2 are good too and relatively short.
Oh hey, I've heard that Steam runs on the PS3 now
How does that work?
@YiJiang Only through games, there isn't a dedicated app
Portal 2 is the only game supported right now, but I think the next CS will be supported as well
In Portal 2, you can access a Steam overlay, similar to the PC one, where you have access to you friends list and chat
And you can play cross platform with PC players
And your saves and achievements carry over
I wonder if it's gonna be supported by other games as well, not just Valve games
11:04 AM
@OrigamiRobot Sharing is caring!
@spugsley Madam, I am disappoint.
I miss the most interesting conversations when I'm asleep. ;_;
@FAE It was pretty typical for @spugsley
11:22 AM
Q: Is it possible to play Street Fighter X Tekken with 2 players online on one PC?

ayckosterI heard that the XBox360 version allows only one player to play online, so you basically need 2 XBox360 each with a copy of the game to play 2 player tag team online with you buddy (same team). Will the PC version be the same? Do I need 2 PCs with one copy each to play 2 player tag team online?

@OrigamiRobot Damn you people. Now I've read like the entire backlog for last night, lol
@FAE It's pretty straightforward and not much reading is required.
@OrigamiRobot To be fair, it's a lot of either pretty girls or memes
@FAE There are memes in there?
I only remember pretty girls.
@OrigamiRobot Selective robot memory.
11:49 AM
Q: I've subscribed to an item on Steam Workshop - how do I download it?

AlexNow that the Portal 2 Perpetual Testing Initiative is out, I've been looking at some of the available maps, but I'm not sure how to actually download them. I've gone into an author's or collection's page, where I can subscribe to an item. I've clicked the Subscribe button and the subscriptions h...

Argh! Portal 2 for 66% off. Should I get it?
@YiJiang Do you want it?
The problem isn't desire - my wishlist is huge. The problem is would I enjoy it more than everything else I can spend $6.79 USD on?
God damn opportunity cost
@YiJiang My metric for judging Steam sales is the following: "Will I have enough time to play this before the next holiday sale? Do I want this game badly enough not to wait until then?"
Because it will very likely go on sale in summer.
So that's... Julyish. Will you have the time and desire to play it before then? If so, I'd say get it now.
@FAE That's a good metric. July, eh?
11:57 AM
@YiJiang Aye. Last year's sale started on the last day of June and went through early July.
Well, that is after my summer holidays so, uh, yeah, I'd suppose I'll get it now
@YiJiang There's also the obvious winter holidays sale but I assume you don't want to wait that long.
@YiJiang duh
and do not neglect the coop half
Four portal griefing is where it's at
12:17 PM
also I need to find a way to remove that stupid WoW identity from the forums
I'm getting a Vita next week, any recommendations for retail/PSN games?
Q: When occurs the reset in the Dreamworld?

Michel AyresI was playing in the Dreamworld and When it reach 1 hour it close and start the time to open again. But today I enter just to check my berry farm, finished and leave. The time didn't reset. How works the reset in Dreamworld?

Q: What can be done with artefact clothes?

AnnaMy fortress has produced an arterfact leather coat, leather shirt and gold bracelet. Can these be used for anything except selling them? For example, could I specify that a dwarf can wear them?

@NickT What a party pooper. :P
Do you wanna be a Missile Engineer??????!
12:46 PM
@JohnoBoy What kind of games do you like?
Q: Sorting out the tagging mess

OakA lot of users, myself included, believe the current tagging situation is a bit messy. This has been discussed before: A personal appeal to Jeff Atwood: Recent Changes to Gaming Let's talk about [Mods] Easter eggs are evil Spoiler alert: [spoiler] dies Proper usage of spoiler tag? Why does ...

Probably should have slept more than four hours, ugh.
@TimStone Ick. :( Sleep is good! (Mind you I got about a half hour more than that so who am I to talk...)
There's not enough time in the day. Luckily, there is enough coffee in my cup (I hope)
@TimStone If there isn't, refill the cup. ;)
12:59 PM
Hahah. Today is one of the days I have to drive (an hour) into the office, so being awake usually helps with that.
@AshleyNunn What a waste of effort! Just take it with an IV.
@TimStone Generally, yeah.
