I don't like the way the country's ran, don't you know, and, erm... that's pretty much what i was expressing in my poem. The government... the American government - they're sneaky, they're very deceitful, they're liars, they're cheats, they're rip-offs. I mean, the American government is one systematic government that...that nobody can trust. I don't trust them myself.

#135 serveme.tf - free server reservations in Projects

With the RGL season active and more people at home due to COVID, the NA system is very full every night. We've also had to seriously look at the real server cost for NA, since dedicated servers are quite a bit more expensive in NA (I was paying the overrun myself, since serveme.tf is a non-profit by design).
That means I've had to raise the monthly goal in NA to cover the costs. That increased goal was already mostly being met, but I've also cut some costs by switching to cheaper dedicated servers, of equal or better specifications.

On the plus side, NA regularly has more active players than EU, so we've increased the amount of NA servers to 101. Depending on demand, COVID, and how the seasons go we will adjust the amount in the months ahead.

#6 Should I watch LOST? in Music, Movies, TV

No, the ending betrays everything the creators promised up to that point. Lost was made right when TV shows got really good, so you have much better options to choose from now. I've watched all the seasons, appreciated the online stuff they did at the same time, but still I recommend you don't watch this show, it's a waste of time.

This gif makes more sense than the show ultimately did.

It's such a waste too, because the actors, the story, the music, everything was so great (for a TV show at the time), but in the end it's all bullshit because the writers didn't know where to take it. I won't spoil the big reveal, since you asked not to in the opening post, but please, watch a better, more recent show instead.

#40 Headphones in Hardware
cereaIam I the only one who regrets buying the dt 770s? I think for gaming it's not spatial enough, and it's not my preference for listening to music either.

Closed back headphones typically don't have a great soundstage, if that's something you care a lot about and you don't use the headphones in a noisy environment, open headphones are generally better at it.

BilbertHow well do 80 Ohm and 250 Ohm headphones work on a desktop motherboard? Specifically, the motherboard has a Realtek ALC892. The datasheet says the output impedance is 200 Ohm. I'm not sure how that number corresponds to actual listening volume.

The ACL892 is just the chip (it's fine, not amazing, although who can really tell), the chip alone doesn't tell us the rest of the circuitry. You should never have an output impedance of 200Ohm. I hope the spec sheet is really talking about a max suggested headphone impedance of 200Ohm.
An average 80Ohm headphone on an average mainboard will very likely work fine, a 250Ohm will also work in most cases, but you might have to turn up the volume quite a bit.

PeteArieDon't spend any money on DACs and AMPs, on-board audio is so good these days, you're better off just putting the money saved towards beter headphones or ice cream.
I've been told this before, and maybe my motherboard is just really unfortunate in the audio department, but I had constant static without a DAC. Look at reviews of your motherboard to make sure that's not a complaint people have

Yeah some motherboard have very poor circuitry, and some cases come with terrible front panel audio connectors. In those cases a cheap USB DAC can be an easy fix (or try the rear panel audio connectors instead).

#13 Headphones in Hardware

There's nothing wrong with the HyperX Cloud II, especially for the price. If they're not broken, consider keeping them.

If you want to upgrade, there's the Beyerdynamic MMX 300, about 240 EUR (straight from Beyerdynamic). It's basically a Beyerdynamic DT770, which is a proper hifi, closed, over-ear headphone, but coupled with a great microphone.
No RGB, no wireless, no bullshit features. If you don't need the microphone, the DT770 suggested by yak404 is absolutely wonderful and half the price (get the 32Ohms version).

Don't spend any money on DACs and AMPs, on-board audio is so good these days, you're better off just putting the money saved towards beter headphones or ice cream.

#36 twiikuu's technology in Projects
twiikuuSorry for the bump, putting down some information I've discovered so that it can be found later, it doesn't necessarily concern players directly:

To server hosts:
- "GG Lag" is caused mainly by srcds writing the demo file to disk, which is something like ~1mbps worth of data, it happens in CS:GO as well, I think it may be possible to mitigate some of it by writing demofiles to a ramdisk. I'll be investigating to see if it's possible to simply delay the writing until the STV has caught up.
- "GG Lag" may also be caused because the whitelist is re-exec'd and it has gotten huge, it happens anytime the tournament mode restarts, I will investigate to see if it can be disabled.

GG lag even happens on my servers with SSDs and NVMe SSDs.

#17 ETF2L Season 36 announced in News
DuMmTmSo how are the plugins gonna be enforced, cause last time i checked there was no communication between any of tge involved parties (Twikkuu, ETF2L, Serveme) about it yet and matches start soon

I'm not sure all of ETF2L's staff fully understands the requested change. First of all the ETF2L announcement is confusing since it lists and links 3 separate plugins. Groundfix (ramp slide fix), FallDamageFixer (consistent fall damage) and Twikkuu's comp fixes plugin which includes the other two and some other stuff. So really only 1 plugin is needed and that's Twikkuu's comp fixes plugin.
Second, they still need to release updated configs to enable the fixes they want to use. Twikkuu has thankfully released the plugin with all fixes disabled by default, allowing leagues to pick and choose what they want, but that does require updated league configs.
And last, the ETF2L admin asking me about adding the plugin to serveme.tf was up until that point unaware that only premium customers of serveme.tf can enable plugins, requiring serveme.tf to allow this feature for free or force every ETF2L team to become a paying customer (we're opting to make plugins free).

#17 someone interpolate PREM - by CUBE using AI in Videos
bearodactylin the example video there's a bit of artifacting too where it doesn't quite interpolate it correctly, would be curious to see how it does with tf2 but my guess is it might be harder to do than these super simple stop motion shots and result in more errors

The AI really fails at the PREM intro, but the 60FPS video overall looks quite nice, hard to watch the 30FPS version again. The killfeed looks a little weird with certain movements and the crosshair goes wonky every now and then too, specifically when rocket jumping.

I've sent CUBE the finished 60FPS version and asked for his approval to share it here.
