  1. Sent you a Steam request so maybe we can pair up sometime. Do you play/have you played on ESEA?
  2. Map progression has gotten pretty "weird" since the release of free-to-play. Doesn't seem to be a way to play the legacy maps by themselves in local/bot mode. I'll need to explore this a bit more though (only fired it up once the other night).
  3. @HipKat -- Been watching a LOT of via ESL on Twitch and it makes me want to play again (hence, the motivation for this post). I used to be OK a few years ago, but was looking to see if anyone was interested in doing comp. Much more fun with folks I know and can gel with, as opposed to 4 other randos from ESEA.
  4. I noticed that the community was really hot'n'heavy with CS:GO in 2015 based on posts and comments in these boards. However, only two comments are in the main thread in the last 30 days, so I'm wondering if there's still interest in playing in coop/competitive modes. I myself used to play pretty regularly in 2016 but moved to other titles after that. Curious if there's any interest in the community for having a server or team for CS:GO.
  5. Haven't played competitive in a few years, but I'm down for getting back in the groove: https://steamcommunity.com/id/falc0n2k
  6. Most of my games are UE4 titles (Squad, INS Sandstorm, etc), but I will try these options when I get home later today. I'd definitely like to get back to streaming something other than CS:GO again. Thanks for the suggestions and I'll let you know how I make out, @Lenovo.
  7. @Lenovo What settings do you use for streaming? I've played with this so much that I'm unsure of what I should be using settings-wise. Although I have learned that the auto-configurator is complete garbage and really only works on newer machines.
  8. Sweet! Thank you!! Please let me know how he makes out with 720p and 1080p streams (although I venture to say that 720 would fair better with the FX-series processors).
  9. Thanks for the reply @w1cx. Unfortuantely, I don't have another computer to stream to, but I have heard of folks doing a HDMI loopback using a HDMI cable connected from the output of the GPU to the input of the Elgato. Seems anecdotal though, since this doesn't appear to be a best practice. My rig is definitely wired with Ethernet so no worries there. I think the performance bottleneck is my CPU at this point, which I will be upgrading shortly. The 1060 6 GB I have now seems solid enough to handle most anything I throw at it, and with some light research I've done via UserBenchmark, the FX-8350 seems to be a lot better than the FX-6100 I have now. (If you're wondering why I don't just upgrade to a TR or Core I-series processor, it's simple economics. For me to upgrade the proc would require a new mobo, which in turn requires new RAM, which is the most cost-prohibitive thing for me right now. Using Streamlabs OBS for streaming and it's working pretty well. Love the interface and tight integration with the rest of Streamlabs content/overlays.
  10. My current system (AMD-based CPU with GTX 1060 6 GB GPU) has much difficulty reliably streaming to Twitch when I play shooters/BR (Sandstorm, Squad, PUBG, etc), most noticeably with low in-game framerates. I'm a bit new to streaming and would like to do what I can to improve the reliability and quality of my stream without impacting FPS. To solve this, I am considering adding an Elgato HD60 Pro to handle the H.264 encoding and lightening that load away from my GPU. The hope is that I can record or stream live to Twitch without impacting my in-game FPS and still provide a high-quality stream. I'm also planning some budget upgrades to my existing rig (of note, FX-8350 CPU and 1070 GPU) and I'm hoping these changes will help improve things on a tight budget. Very much open to ideas from the community about the best way to handle this.
  11. I second a vote for a Pistols-only mod. I'd play the hell out of that.
  12. @GoongalaJones Want to give the community a feel first before applying, but I think it's safe to say you'll be seeing something from me soon. See you around the servers!
