Fuck xsplit.  So as I have been using xsplit since Public Beta 5, I have seen my ingame FPS with xsplit just open steadily go down.  Tonight I could NOT get l4d2 to run better than 30 fps sitting still.  20 if CI were on screen.  I had tinkered with OBS, and compared to my 130 fps with no streaming software open, OBS let me stay at a stable 90+.  I need to tinker with its settings still, but fuck Xsplit.  Done with it.

General / Unacceptable behavior from teams
« on: May 17, 2012, 02:07:57 pm »
Any requests for sending a game live in the future to myself with less than a half hour notice will be ignored.  This is unacceptable behavior on your part.  If you can not be bothered to ask ahead of time, I will not be bothered to get setup in that time.  You can not tell me you decide the time for the match within 5 minutes of contact when the brackets are released days ahead of it.

Been running this around my head for a while, commiting it to paper.  One of the main features requires a plugin that may not be possible, and reliant upon the teams keeping track of it themselves.  This would not be submitted for competitive, only for the lols.

From the time survivors leave the safe room, the clock starts, and only ends when they make it through the map or are wiped.  The slower of the two teams is penalized by lets say 100 points.  On the other hand, health bonus will be worth 2.5-3x distance (distance being reduced as a result).  Bunny hopping will be enabled, and SI will have a slightly reduced spawn timer (right now considering 17). 

Witches will be aware at a greater distance making them harder to evade.  Thought is being done on including a long gun (hr/scout/awp/something) that will help survivors push tank.  I am considering a 10 shot version of the military sniper with reduced damage/bullet.  If possible tank slowdown will be highly customized to be from a single source, otherwise no tank slowdown.

There will also be a minor natural horde to help you feel out the time as you progress (10 zombies, maybe 15).  Also no uncommon infected.  No bile jars either.

Beyond that you can expect fairly standard metaderivative changes.

Thoughts and suggestions?  Offers of assistance?

Confogl & Miscellaneous / Question about tank slowdown...
« on: March 22, 2012, 01:36:25 pm »
Question for those who say without tank slowdown = free incaps, so less skill needed.

Late tank spawn means you have several attacks you can go in with before the tank even spawns.  If you claim to be skilled players, why aren't the survivors limping into an 80% tank anyways under non-tank slowdown configs?  Do you blame valve netcode for never landing damage?  If that's the case, then no tank slowdown seems to be the only way you will chip health bonus/destroy it on a map, so why complain? 

I thought tanks every map was for that reason, so the SI team could actually do some major wrecking damage to the other team each map.  If that isn't the case, and you want to just shut it down unless you land miracle hitables/amazing rocks/etc, why not remove tanks from each level?  If they are just gonna get destroyed trying to push in, why have them?

Now if I remember correctly, the tank is natively slower than a green survivor.  And the way you land hits on a survivor is to 'long arm it' where you get a bit of server lag with the survivor standing still in the moment the tank swings even though the player is holding S and W respectively.  So netcode again allowing you to catch them.  Survivors have to know their terrain to know how close to a corner they are, what they are backpedaling into, etc.  What prevents a survivor from running with their back to a tank?  I imagine the game slows you down when running backwards, but you never see it. 

Regardless, either you can land your hits or you can't.  If its the netcode that prevents you/hit detection/etc, then why whine about the config settings?  If the point is to do damage to the health bonus, isn't tank slowdown being removed a good thing?  If its netcode holding you back isn't the major issue on valve's end?  I really don't understand this. 


TL:DR?  lolwut?  I don't get the complaints, explain why tank "doing work" = bad

Left 4 Dead 2 / So you think you can cast
« on: March 17, 2012, 05:28:52 pm »
Due to some expressed interest from various individuals in chat on casts, I am going to do something about it.

What is this?  It is a daily cast on my personal twitch channel (don't worry, we won't have many watching) of a pug or scrim assuming there are 2 people available.  Two volunteers from the pool will be asked to cast the match and keep it flowing.  This allows us to make sure your mic doesn't sound like you keep it in a fish tank, or make noises to make your Co threaten bodily harm, and you have some idea of how to keep up with the action.

There will be no war rooms to run to for tanks.  Long rock tanks may happen.  Learn to cope.  Pauses may happen.  Long ready ups.  Be ready for anything.

I will have active casters review your performance and give feedback.  Don't expect to have it down your first run.  Take it as a learning experience, and grow from it.

So how does this work?  Steam group of course!

Confogl & Miscellaneous / Scoring system poll (fine shade)
« on: March 13, 2012, 02:27:09 pm »
So since it is insisted we need community input for the config makers fine.  Here is your bloody poll you lazy wankers.

Custom distances like you see in Equilibrium, or similar. 

As most of you know, HB (Health Bonus) is currently 2x the distance points at max.  Do you want it barely increased to the 3-5x the distance?  Do you want it something rediculous like 10x?

If you want something else entirely, post it and select option 7.

I have my system setup for an SD quality stream.  If anyone wants any pugs/scrims put out there for people to see, send me a message on steam.  It will be cast to my twitch.tv channel.  Anyone who wants to give commentating/casting a try is also free to message me, as I hear of these games to camera, I will invite you along, and you can show off your microphone casting skills.
