#75 Shit that shouldn't happen in matchmaking in TF2 General Discussion

I find it strange they, in my experience, locked the motion blur strength cvar, but didn't lock motion blur. Using transparent viewmodels on your HUD requires you to enable motion blur, but you can set the strength to 0 so it doesn't really do anything. But in MM it's one or the other.

Also there needs to be an accept button or something (in addition to being able to choose a region/acceptable ping). I blocked southwest NA/EU/SA servers in CS:GO because I consistently got higher than 120 ping to southwest NA, and since I was blocking those servers already I might as well block all the others around the world. This caused me to abandon a few matches before I remembered I had regions blocked for CS:GO MM.

#5 Dual monitor pipe dream in Q/A Help
joshuawnDreamerThere was a setting I tried but ended up not liking in Display Fusion called "Prevent Window Deactivation."

https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/preventing-game-windows-from-minimizing/?ID=ab5ec329-4190-4dff-8d63-e9b5f611656e

Random video I found of a guy using it. Iirc it doesn't let you minimize the window at all though. You might also have problems with games that never unlock your cursor even if you are in menus.

You might be able to make it easier to setup using Display Fusion 8 beta and using the Triggers.

what the fuck? my mind is blown right now.
does this induce any input lag?

I don't know, sorry. I thought it was a feature I wanted and realized it wasn't so I stopped using it pretty quickly.

#1031 Post your setup in Off Topic

I just added 2 new monitor arms so I can move my ultrawide IPS to be my main monitor for most stuff, and then move it to the left and use my 144Hz for TF2/CS:GO.

Excuse the lazily took pictures and me not taking the 2 seconds to level the 144Hz since I moved it right back to the right.

#14 NFO routing going to shit from east coast? in TF2 General Discussion

Have you guys ran trace routes, looked for ISP similarities, etc.? I had pretty bad routing from Texas about a month back as well as others on Time Warner in my area. NFO fixed it within a day after I told them my ISP and provided them trace routes to the servers I was having problems with.

You guys could give this a chance. I haven't been able to see the site because I have a DNS error. It could be a good thing in time if he's willing to put the work into it.

EDIT: Well nvm

#89 Memories when you started online gaming in Off Topic

My first game I tried to play online was Little Fighter 2, but never got it working (looking back it probably required hamachi or something because the connect feature was probably just for LAN).

I played a ton of Halo on PC. My computer didn't support much of anything because I had a P4 era Celeron with integrated graphics. All the masterchiefs were white regardless of team. You had to aim over people to know if they were on your team for sure, but you could have a decent idea about which team they were on by the direction they were running.

Then I got Jedi Academy and played a ton of Force Mod 3. Tried a roleplay server once. Never again.

#51 Help me to choose which mouse I should buy in Hardware
augustLogitech Gs are a very safe bet; personally, I wanted to transition over to a palm grip so I bought myself an MX518.

Why did you go back to an MX518? I used to use that mouse and enjoyed it, but it has its own problems (mainly angle snapping built in). It was fixed with the G400 and surely the ones since then.

#50 PugChamp in Projects

It's times like this though that are really frustrating.

http://i.imgur.com/DMPuN6w.png

You have 12+ people on but no one will captain so no one plays. It's understandable why no one captains, but it's still really annoying. I liked the old IRC system because games were still played even if people refused to captain. Sometimes the games sucked, but I felt like it was better than not playing at all.

Newbie mixes/lobbies aren't a good alternative. Lobbies are a horrible experience and newbie mixes happens once a week? Also I doubt there are many people in pug.champ that should play in Newbie mixes because it's meant for people who are actually new to the game and there's no need to go stomp them there. Power PUGs and other inhouse groups are good, but inconsistent and you can't hop in whenever you feel like.

#38 PugChamp in Projects

How against a TF2mix type system would people be? Allow for captain games, and also allow fully randomized games like TF2mix had. I think captain games are better overall, but sometimes it is nice to just be able to get a game played because people are apprehensive towards captaining.

I'd say don't do every other game like TF2mix had, but perhaps another checkbox where you consent to a randomized team if you can't get a pug going otherwise. The problem with TF2mix was that it could make some horribly unbalanced teams, but if the player rating works here that could really help to fight that.

But, idk, maybe that isn't something the community at large would like.

EDIT: Saw there are plans for a matchmaking system in the chat, that could work too.

#7 Launch tf2 on second monitor? in Customization

Not the most elegant solution but the only way I found to do it (not for TF2) was to use Steam Big Picture Mode. BPM allows you to change the primary monitor as long as it is running, so I would launch up BPM and then launch the game I wanted on my second monitor (which was temporarily made my primary). This probably isn't what you want for TF2, but I used it so I could throw GTA5/etc. on my ultrawide instead of my 144hz for TF2/CS.

When you exit BPM it reverts your main monitor. This might still mess up your setup, but it worked for me. I didn't notice any problems switching back and forth, but I haven't tried it in awhile.
