Re: Quality difference DP cable?

The quality of the cable can make a difference to the maximum data rate it can carry. Wikipedia has a nice table showing what transmission modes your cable should support to get different resolutions/refresh rates here . A bit higher on the page it describes what modes go with which cable type. Also...

Re: Insight, tips, tricks. No chat plz.

Bullet penetration! Ever wonder why sometimes you get nailed in one shot at long range by an assault rifle when it wasn't even a headshot? Well I think I have the answer. At least from my testing, looks like bullets go through body parts individually and cause damage for each part that they pass thr...

Re: Sandstorm

I prefer the slower style of the old server too tbh. I'm not really a fan of the vampirism because I find it spoils the immersion somewhat. I would say increase player health compared to bots for the same effect, but I don't think that's possible (until the mod tools come out at least). Happy for fr...

Re: What software?

Aside from the obvious Steam/Origin/Discord, some smaller things that tend to get overlooked: 7zip - program for compressing/extracting many types of files (zip, rar, 7z...), for downloading obscure mods etc. Notepad++ - great text editor for if you need to tweak config files Malwarebytes - free ant...

Re: New PC Help?

Ah. Sorry about that, I saw the word "build" and got a little over-excited :P Before I got into building, I had a pre-built system from https://www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk/. I've only just moved on from it, still running smooth with a few easy upgrades 6 years later so the build quality seems sound. ...

Re: New PC Help?

I highly recommend https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/ if you plan on building some/all of it yourself. Makes it very easy to check part compatibility etc and also gives you an idea of the cost - though you may get better deals shopping around. The "Build Guides" section also has some good starting setups ...

Re: New game required

+Wreckfest, I have nearly 400 hours in that game, it's brilliant imo

If nitro-injected powerslides and ridiculous car accidents are more your thing check out Burnout Paradise Remastered on Origin. Also a masterpiece!

Re: Insight, tips, tricks. No chat plz.

Unsure if this was always a thing, but the developer console is actually available in Sandstorm now. I used godmode on the weapon range to try shooting down helicopters and I found it takes a surprisingly small number of bullets to take one out. Naturally you must focus on the tail rotor. It only to...
