Video games. We love them because they eat our time and fill our worthless lives with something to do. I know I like them, and hell, you do too, you nerd.

But how much do we like video games? Enough to have a megathread about them! And also to buy guns based entirely around seeing them in video games! After all, why do you think anyone owns a Desert Eagle?

Let me begin this new megathread by saying: give me bannerlord you cowards i need to see borcha in high definition

mod edit: just dropping a link to the old thread if anyone wants it: https://forums.somethingawful.com/showthread.php?threadid=3015878

also, now that I'm an admin you don't see the "someone edited" thing when I do this!

In the spirit of the thread title I maxed the Uzi in MW first and then I went and bought one. Bonus, it's one of the ones Century did a few years back because I wanted to save a couple hundred lol. Can't wait for my FFL to e-mail me saying it's in.

Homeworld 1 was one of my Youth Games, I ended up with the collector's set with the silver box and the soundtrack and all the technical manuals and lore books.



Also I rebought RDR2 and managed to get it working by loving around non-stop with admin mode for various poo poo. If I weren't transferring poo poo to a new hard drive I got (fun thing they make 8TB hard drives now so I can consolidate all these smaller older ones into bigger new ones) I'd be cowpoking right now.

If you need more RTS action they did also just remake and rerelease Age of Empires 2. Though admittedly I don't like the new remade music as much as the classic like 11k stuff that has fuzzy popping sounds.

Got RDR2 working again. Turns out when I made the swapover to that new drive I took My Documents with it since I don't keep it on C:/, which is exactly what I wanted, but what I didn't realize is there's a virtual link that needs updated in the actual system to tell it "Hey idiot My Docs is in this new drive now" so now the game works fine.

I'm pretty sure I'm under spec with my older i7 and 980 not-TI, but I've got it turned pretty high up because I was sick of the lovely playdough textures and am just running it 30 FPS lock and it's going well. It's not smooth exactly, since I never feel like 30FPS locks are exactly smooth, but it isn't dipping below 30 and I plan on upgrading my system at some point in the near future anyway (in fact I already am, hence the My Docs issue lol).

So here's something that bothers me and I need to know if anyone knows the answer to this.

Did we have modern-style wooden pallets back in like 1899 or whenever RDR2 was? Like, clearly designed to be lifted and moved via jack or forklift.

Hey Shima, I'm getting Arma 3 to play co-op and co-op mods with a friend. Which of the DLCs are worth it?

Apex is the big one because it's a great map and a fair amount of new poo poo. Plus some of the better campaign-style mods like Overthrow are on it.

Next is Contact. The map that comes with it is also really cool though it lacks for other content when it comes to co-op.

After that world's your oyster. Most of them are essentially content packs, and that content can be available in the game even without the DLC. The big thing with the above two are maps.


For mods you may want to look at Liberation (can be highly customized but pretty basic stuff and more importantly it's easy to do stuff with just one other person), Overthrow (Not customizable but fun as hell and easy to do poo poo with only a few people doing guerilla poo poo), and Antistasi and related/offshoot campaigns (This is the hardest to do with only a few; mildly customizable if you know what you're doing. I've heard it's easier now but when me and my crew tried back in the day we had like almost zero movement on the map because they always took it back and we were too few to really strike them and cut off reinforcements etc). You can also look at a variety of other things, including ALIVE if you wanna get stupid with it, but those above are the basics. For mods you can probably get by either full-on vanilla and learn the game or do RHS to get real-world poo poo going. I will tell you now, if you can, install ACE and learn it, that's the big stumbling block for most people. Look up Youtube videos. Almost nobody plays without ACE and most custom campaigns require it, though some (Liberation and Antistasi for example) have backwards compatibility with vanilla no-ACE.

If you like, after you guys get settled in and learn the game my crew's been on hiatus for a bit due to a key member disappearing but I still maintain the server and our custom mod list, though I need to update them presently. Of course, I only have a couple of weekdays off and not normal hours and I'm unsure of the guys except for my coworker who's always down to go when he's not at work (he's also transitioning into a full-timer position though so he's about to lose his free time too). And because we mod like stupid you'd want a bunch of GB free for that too. The only hitch is the key member we're missing maintains a couple mods and he's got those set to friend-only so we'd need to prod his brother into getting him back online for a few minutes at least.

My "getting started and not knowing what we're doing" story is starting almost cold-turkey having never used ACE with my buddy in Overthrow and us taking a tiny town but he took a cop's europellet to the chest. So, we had no idea how to heal that, and he's there sorta bleeding out but also still awake. And in the process of trying to figure out healing him, I loving also blast him and now he's passed out and I still don't know what I'm doing to get him healed lol. I then spent like 30 minutes trying to learn the merchant system in Overthrow to buy band-aids only for him to die once I got the supplies and figured out how to do first aid someone. The lesson here is either Youtube it or learn in a safe environment, such as a conquered town.

I haven't tried Vindicta myself but I can tell you Overthrow is best on Tanoa where it was originally developed.

The mortars happened because Overthrow has VCOM AI naturally inserted into it and VCOM allows the AI to call in strikes, which are usually pretty accurate. I guess since the last time I played Overthrow they started allowing them to deploy mortars or arty vehicles lol



So, with RDR2, is it just impossible to get perfect skins off some animals or what, because I'm shooting Grizzlies with express rounds from my Springfield and it's taking three shots and I'm getting 1 stars off them for my trouble.

This is basically your problem. Without the mentioned trinket that increases loot quality you have a drastically reduced chance to get a 3-star pelt if it takes more than a single shot. Even both to the head.

Here's another RDR2 question, this time controls related. Every time I go into dead eye it auto-targets instead of letting me select when to shoot, so when I, for example, try to hunt a bear and shoot it in the red spots it's like "lol you wanted to bounce this off the fur at the top of his back right" and I want that to not happen.

Don't drive too fast in Arma with dynamic campaigns like this because it is possible to outrun spawning distances and then that's how you suddenly have a squad of dudes and a few tanks spawn next to you.
