  1. Human controlled evolution available to all~

      Another puzzler on a Status Update page!  


      Google says, "Transhumanism" and the spell-checker here says "no, nope, nada!" :D 


      BTW, I voted in the recent California Primary for the Transhumanist candidate.  :LMAO: 

  2. Woop woop! Case and GPU are here! Next week comes the mobo, CPU, and RAM.

    1. RedBaird


      Ah, the joy and expectations of building your own unit. :D


      Even the trouble-shooting can be fun. 🧯

    2. Xernicus


      I don't plan on any troubleshooting. Everything is operating as planned.

    3. RedBaird


      I said that a couple of times, too!


      The last time, my mobo cpu 'back area' did not fit in the hole in the case-backplane.  I ended up dremel-ing out the hole and vacu-u-uming it a lot.  No shorts so far, not in the last 8 years.


      My first clue to the problem was the the GPU kept screaming!  :o I realized that the mobo was 'bent' and that not all the pins were fully inserted.  

  3. I did buy an RTX... that's all I'm gonna say for now. Want to keep my build a surprise for now. But I did buy from EVGA, so if the 3000 series is released at GTC, I can use their step-up program.
  4. If you haven't already, try doing a clean install of the latest Radeon Adrenalin drivers, version 20.2.2. Here's a link: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-20-2-2 It *should* help your problem. Another thing you could try would be renaming et.exe to quake3.exe and seeing if that fixes your FPS drops.
  5. As you all know, I've been an avid Radeon supporter for many years. I've bought nothing but Radeon GPUs over the course of the past nine years, and today that streak came to an end. It's not that their hardware isn't competitive. Nor has it been waiting for a decent architecture. I can live without HairWorks, ray tracing, and CUDA acceleration. Only 71 fps in ET? No problem. Microstuttering? I can live with it. Their drivers though. Oh man. What a steaming heap of ----. And that's why I'm parting ways with Radeon GPUs. And blue screens only paint a tiny fraction of the picture. For six months, I thought my GPU had failed. It had all the telltale signs of failure: black screens, artifacts, fans ramping up to 100% with a system hang, you name it. I used a backup card for many months until I absolutely needed my 480 for some work. I only needed it to work for 15 minutes. It's now been running for over a month without a problem. That's right, their drivers were so bad they mimicked hardware failure. (expensive hardware failure, at that) And yes, I threw the book at it (DDU, rolling back, flashing vbios, etc). Now I've been in the market to upgrade for some time. But I didn't really see any competition, and I wanted to continue to support AMD. So I waited. For the disaster that was Vega, and I waited for Navi. And seven months down the line, only half of the issues with Navi have been fixed. Now people are saying to wait for Navi 2. But this time, I'm finally fed up. I need something that just works. So I'm going back to Nvidia. Big whoop right? I make a long post just to say that? Well, no. Because I also can't recommend Radeon products any more, they've lost my trust. And if you're building a new PC, or considering an upgrade with a Radeon GPU, I just have two words: Good luck.

    Bug ET 30-40 fps

    Did Windows Update run recently? Microsoft pushed out yet another borked update, so that'd be the first thing I'd check. The update in question is KB4535996. Here's how to check if it's been installed: https://www.thewindowsclub.com/windows-10-update-history One other thing to look at is your GPU drivers. AMD's drivers have been a mess as of late, but the latest version fixed many GPU downclocking issues. Try updating your drivers to the latest Adrenalin 20.2.2 release.
  7. I'd stay away from the Intel tax (unless you need faster AVX execution) with all of these exploits coming out... but that's just me. Between those two systems, I'd choose the Desktop. I avoid MSI like the plague. They use crappy FETs on their CPU power delivery. The desktop's mobo is solid AF, plenty of RAM, and you can't go wrong with a 2070. Looks like it comes with a liquid cooler as well.
  8. Building a new PC soon! Stay tuned~!

      It's definitely a better time than ever to upgrade, even if it's just to 16 gigs of RAM!
      Gonna be ordering the core parts on Monday, rest will follow next week. Planning on making a video too. :D

    3. RedBaird


      Uh, will the Covid19 shipping slowdown affect your deliveries?

    4. Xernicus


      I doubt it. All the parts I'm ordering are in stock both through NewEgg, Amazon, and local warehouses.

  9. I know this is a late reply, but please never activate the "Super admin" account unless you absolutely need to. Many, many exploits and malware kits look for this account being active. Anything is possible using Safe Mode and the permissions window without activating the "superuser" account.
  10. Hard to reply to you directly since you're a guest, but lots has changed in the past few months: 1. New version of XIGNCODE 2. Memory heap optimization (last week) and 3. This week's patch has been absolute crap. What I'd recommend first would be to either run Repair Mode (if you're using the launcher) or Verifying Game Files (if you're playing through Steam). Second, make sure the game is running as an Administrator. If that doesn't work, we can go for more advanced steps such as re-installing XIGNCODE3.
  11. I'm not sure how I feel about Succession yet. The lack of sustain is kinda huge, but with inf. potions coming to NA/EU sometime that shouldn't be a huge issue. She's got a ton of AoE with succ, you can literally fly in -> Salpuri -> Fly out. I do miss her grab and dash... the kit also requires a large amt. of skill points to be viable. I'd say around 1800. I also feel that it's also more aimed towards evasion, while my gear is DR oriented. It might make large scale PvP viable for her, but at the cost of eliminating her prime 1v1 abilities. Ultimately, I think I'm going to swap back to awakening for now. Maybe try to hit another AP bracket and see if succ gets a buff (heard it's already been buffed in KR) before deciding on whether or not it's something I'd stick with. It flows nicely, looks pretty, is really fun, and you actually need to pay attention while grinding (which is a nice change from braindead awakening), but it comes with some costs. And yes, definitely take some more screenshots!
  12. And with succession, mah girl is all grown up! :') *sniffle*
  13. Hmm... when (exactly) did this problem start?
  14. Woot! New keyboard came in the mail today.

  15. This still isn't fixed? *sigh* Alright, I need to see your GPU temps. Download HWinfo64 here: https://www.hwinfo.com/download/ Run it with "Sensors only" mode. Scroll down until you see GPU #0. Start ET. Play a little bit until you start experiencing FPS drops. take a screenshot and attach it here. it should look something like this: Thank you.
