  1. I honestly keep forgetting Epic offers free games, so personally the reminder is a welcome one for me, but that's just my two cents.

    Free Games

    Company of Heroes 2 is currently free on Steam if you add it to your account before November 17 @ 1:00pm: https://store.steampowered.com/app/231430/Company_of_Heroes_2/ You can also snag the Victory at Stalingrad DLC for free by signing up to their newsletter (there's a link in the COH2 WEEKEND GIVEAWAY! announcement).
  3. It might also be worth mentioning we're on MandaloreGaming's list of games to review (I was pleasantly surprised to find TDM there; totally wasn't expecting it): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_K3ziSxT9zcUUGCddS4sF1uNJTWHSbOwB1CQX2Rx4Uo/edit#gid=0 If that ever happens, we may see some more attention directed our way!
  4. Also the Microsoft Mothership completely borked my sound drivers. I was on the line with MSI customer support for over two hours trying to fix Windows 10's oopsie, and now I know the next time I get a Windows update they make break my machine again...
  5. Not to mention this has just happened: https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/24/tech/microsoft-windows-security-threat/index.html
  6. You'll want to use patches to achieve a round effect: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Patches Most relevant to you would be Cylinders and Cones (for the inside and outside walls), and curves (for filling the gap between around the rim). The patch inspector (shift+s) is also your friend when forcing subdivisions to be the same, thus avoiding holes where things meet up.
  7. So this just happened: https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/tech/windows-10-microsoft-security-update-trnd/index.html
  8. I think this is where you can find vocal scripts for all the different available voices: http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Voices
  9. I'm actually having weird performance issues on my Windows 10 machine right now. Just upgraded to 2.07, and the Bakery Job is running at about 12 fps when I first load in. By contrast, I get about a solid 60 fps on my Windows 7 machine. This strikes me as especially odd, since my Windows 10 machine, despite being a laptop, is more powerful (16 gigs of RAM in both, with an Nvidia 1060 in the laptop vs a 970 in the desktop). Both setups are exactly the same, with exactly the same settings. Any ideas on what's causing this and how to fix it? [Edit] Just found the issue I think, and it seems to be a case of Windows 10 stupidity. Seems like the OS by default was using the onboard CPU Intel drivers, rather than Nvidia. For anyone else with this problem, go into the Nvidia control panel > Manage 3D Settings > Preferred graphics processor, and switch to "High-performance NVIDIA processor." Now clocking well over 100 fps with uncapped on.

    https://kotaku.com/ubisoft-pledges-more-than-500-000-to-the-notre-dame-ca-1834110129 In response to the tragic fire in Notre Dame, not only is Ubisoft pledging money towards the reconstruction effort, they're also offering AC: Unity free for a week on Uplay
  11. There's a new Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines coming!
  12. I too seem to have been spared from this scam, and checking my email on that site yields no results (thankfully!). So I guess we're okay for now? Still, it'll be nice to see the forums moving to HTTPS, if that is indeed in the works.

    So a quick Google search later, and it looks like to wipe the mask is to quickly tap L1? It goes without saying the mask has to be on to do this, but in my experience it's never been automatic. It's also kind of limited in utility sometimes, but still a neat detail. And yeah, there's separate watch animations for 1 and 2-handed weapons; the 2-handed one is a lot more subtle so it can be hard to spot at first...

    Metro games

    On PC, if you press and hold tab, it brings up a weapons menu. From there, you can move the mouse to switch between knives, explosives, etc. Don't know what it would be on PS4 though, you'd have to check your configs. Same thing with your gas mask: on PC, you press and hold G to put on or take off your mask, and tap G while it's on to wipe (which is a manual action). As for knowing when it's on, you just kinda have to remember to take it off

    Also, fun fact: it's not just the compass that points the way to objectives. If you pay very close attention, you'll notice your lighter's flame/smoke also does too!
