  1. I disagree. You only loosed followed directions and never listed what tweaks you applied. There's literally no info for anyone to go off of.
  2. No rush at all fellas
  3. I would like to make a request. I made subfolders for the desired resolutions. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1w2tfG5XWVmMtUVEW00YEpcMkPJ5wLPzN?usp=sharing
  4. At the very bottom of this thread he says: I'm sure once a large number of the most impressive upscales have been done they'll be archived as one texture pack. Very cool start though.
  5. Gets promoted to regular right as a donation happens. But seriously, thanks for donating.
  6. The democratic process can be a substitute for when an admin isn't present. Try this maybe?
  7. The cities of El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, are reeling from mass shootings that have left more than 30 people dead. On Saturday in El Paso, a gunman opened fire at a Walmart and killed 22 people and injured 22 others. Less than a day later, nine people were killed and 27 others were injured when a gunman opened fire in a popular nightlife district in Dayton. Many of the wounded are still recovering and the families of those who lost loved ones are remembering them in vigils and community events. Here are some ways to help the victims. Source
  8. I'm a plumber that does primarily new construction. These days I mostly do larger apartment buildings like these: https://imgur.com/MdyKi3f Here's a picture of me last winter in a huge hole I had to jackhammer to get to a 4 inch pipe that the framers put a bunch of anchors through: https://imgur.com/2DNFb2S That was a fun day.
  9. I've seen your work before. Big fan. You should post release threads like Michelle said. Make sure to include videos because it's hard to grasp how awesome they are without the vids.
  10. It's such a multifaceted problem that it's unfortunately going to take a lot of time and money (and lives, in the meantime) to fix. All the while the big wigs just argue about "gun control" like it means anything. Disgusting.
  11. Go on about identifying significant interference. I have so much interference at my house on wifi that I just wired up our desktops because we kept dropping connection. Oh and what are these alternate uses you teased?
  12. I've updated the OP with the information and instructions for transferring your old file share content to the MCC on Xbox One. Under heading "Legacy Content Migration"
  13. This is intended to be a one-stop destination for up-to-date information about the Master Chief Collection for PC. If any of you have corrections or more information please reply and share it and I'll edit this post. I'll start with what everyone is going to want. Release Date: There currently is no release date, although Reach is slated to release first on it in 2019. A newsletter by one of the developers also suggests all the games on it will also be released in 2019 Beta Test: From June 28th to July 1st is a very small test of less than 1,000 registered Halo Insiders. It included only the Tip of the Spear mission and the primary goal is to test rolling out builds via Steam at a large scale. A secondary goal is to get feedback on the mouse and keyboard controls and overall game "feel" on PC. The devs also released 15 minutes of 4K gameplay, but there's also no NDA so there's other footage as well. Source More beta tests will follow but they are currently unannounced. 4k Beta Footage Video Games included: Halo: Reach Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Halo 3: ODST (minus the firefight mode) Halo 3 Halo 4 There are no plans for Halo 5. The collection will be sold on PC as individual titles, and then they'll be sold as a package when they're all released. The individual pricing is said to be 10 USD for each game except ODST which is 5 USD. The games will release in chronological order of the series lore timeline, which means Reach is first and Halo: 4 is last. Developers: 343 Industries Ruffian Games Splash Damage It is being sold on the Microsoft store and Steam. You'll need a Microsoft account to play the collection on Steam but not Xbox Live Gold. Here's a list of notable features that have been confirmed: 4k resolution HDR mouse and keyboard support (343 says great m&k controls is their "top priority") 16:9, 21:9, 16:10, 3:2, and 4:3 display modes 144hz displays (the developers plan for uncapped frames for all games but that probably won't happen) FOV silders (their functionality will probably vary from game to game) Split screen is most likely not going to happen at all but it hasn't been officially cut (don't get your hopes up) Cross-platform play (won't be at launch but could possibly be down the road) Reach will not launch with Forge or Theater, but rather around the time Halo 3 and 4 are released Compatible with Windows 7 and 10, with Windows 8 "being investigated" (lol) The MCC will have a custom games browser for both PC and Xbox One (but not support community-hosted dedicated servers. It also probably won't be included at launch) Anti-cheat The collection will have multiplayer progression in the spirit of Halo: Reach. More specific info on that is in the source link below. Multiplayer progression carries over across platforms. Single player does not. Firefight matchmaking in Reach will be hosted on dedicated servers and use an asynchronous network model for improved performance over the original's laggy mess. Here is a list of features that are officially not going to be in the MCC for PC: Community hosted dedicated servers Connecting via direct IP Modding tools/mod support/steam workshop (the developers have said that it will not be supported at launch but possibly could later. if it happens at all, it will be much, much later) Halo: Reach unlocks and progression from the original game on Xbox 360 will NOT carry over to MCC. Legacy Content Migration: A one-time service for bringing game types and maps from your profile’s original Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4 Xbox 360 file share to the MCC file share on Xbox One will be performed in two stages. Game types will be migrated at 10 AM PST on 8/12 and maps will be migrated at 10 AM PST on 8/26. Screenshots, film clips, and films will not be transferred. To get your stuff transferred simply load up Halo 3, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4 on your Xbox 360 (or on your Xbox One via back-compat) and ensure the local files you want to copy over to MCC are uploaded to your file share before each pull. Ensure your game types are uploaded before August 12. On the 12, please leave them there for at least 24 hours without altering. After that, please take some time to place your maps on your file shares before August 26. If you can’t get to your Xbox 360 or update your file share, don’t worry as the game types and maps already uploaded will still make their way to MCC. Here is an archive of the first look livestream of Halo: Reach. The video doesn't show any multiplayer footage. Source for all the above material. There was an AMA on Reddit hosted by Ske7ch and the mods on the Halo Waypoint forums collected the list for your viewing pleasure. It is reproduced here because I'm a really, really nice guy.
  14. Before you re-invent the wheel: https://github.com/Kavawuvi/Invader It's extremely well written and easy to implement. You'd probably be better off modifying this to suit your needs. Hit me up in the TiaraCE discord if you need help with it.
  15. I can see this being very useful actually. It would depend on where the actuation points are set and practice, I suppose, but it would be cool to be able to hard press a key for a capital letter or for symbols with no shift key needed. It could be awesome for macros in games that use lots of keybinds as well. When I play wow, I have my action bars abilities keybound to QERTGV, shift + QERTGV, ctrl + QERTGV and alt + QERTGV, and also some abilities on numbers 2-5. It could be sick to only have to hit the one key but have 4 different actuation points and/or pressure sensitivities, but something like that could be unwieldy. It'll be interesting to see where it goes, which is probably not far for the average person.
  16. This reminds me of something I read about the south park video game. Matt Stone and Trey Parker repeatedly had to tell their artists to "make it shittier". They had to keep a cohesive art style with the show. Sometimes I see maps like the UT2K4 one that DSalimander posted yesterday and the weapons are just so stunningly beautiful that they'll look too good in any other map.
  17. That's the spirit.
  18. I've read that incels in particular have been sharing her photo and posting misogynistic things chiefly about how she deserved it. In one sick account apparently someone got a hold of her mom's phone number and sent her a picture of a printed photo of her daughter's remains that they had ejaculated on with some caption about how she pleasured him one last time. I just simply can't even
  19. Japan's space agency said data transmitted from the Hayabusa2 spacecraft indicated it successfully landed on a distant asteroid Thursday and completed its historic mission of collecting underground samples that scientists hope will provide clues to the origin of the solar system. Source
  20. An amateur computer historian has unearthed a cool piece of technology paraphernalia: NeXT’s Fall 1989 catalog. Kevin Savetz recently scanned the entire 138-page book, and posted the files to Archive.org. Source
  21. For us 'muricans it's a big holiday and weekend. What are your plans? For you outlanders, feel free to share too if you're doing anything. As for me, my company worked out a deal where we work a slightly short day on the 4th and take the 5th off for a 3 day weekend. I don't care about pyrotechnics but I do plan to eat a lot of meat the next few days. I'm hoping I can do some work on the Chrysler during the long weekend, like giving it a polish and wax, detailing it, and replacing the front rotors and brake pads. I might even rent a rug doctor and clean out my Rally Focus and start filling in the dents on it with Bondo. Just puttering around with the cars and such.
  22. Thanks guys. Updated original post.
  23. I agree. Especially considering that these were news organizations, they should have been more responsible about moderating their own public pages. They definitely knew better. Nobody should have a profit-motive to foster false allegations about anyone. That's what this is all about. In any even semi-professional Facebook page, your comments would be removed and/or you would be outright banned. The fact that someone had to spell it out in law shows how shitty some people can be.
  24. I also have 16gb and if I were to upgrade I would get faster RAM rather than more of it. Even though I use Google Chrome my RAM isn't my bottleneck.
  25. This new Microsoft Flight Simulator gameplay looks pretty good
