  1. Since I can't get the voting going in Chrome or Firefox, I'll answer an unanonymous 54
  2. I'd like to give it a spin. As per usual on easy settings
  3. I use uBlock Origin plus Ghostery as an additional layer of protection. I'll get the occasional blank page, but I don't care. If I really, really want to visit an blocked URL, I'll rip out all drives, boot Ubuntu live CD and fire up an unprotected browser...
  4. Roughly 1 in 5 missions updated doesn't seem right...
  5. Very nice mission! But I'm stuck at two points. Hammer guy is up and pacing in his room, making it next to impossible to use the holy water. Aren't they supposed, to calm down after being alerted? In the water station, I can't pick up the welder and I also see no sheets. Am I looking in the wrong place (the table, where the manual was)?
  6. Fairly new to the concept, but would like to participate, please!
  7. Had a short look at the walktrough. You do realise, that knocking out everybody and their little sister will fail the mission on medium and hard difficulty?
  8. Version 2 is somehow not recognised as an update - you'll have to manually delete the old version from your fms directory, to see the new one on the server...
  9. For me, the loadscreen takes 18 seconds to start. Did you wait long enough?
  10. I added the following to the beta test thread, maybe it is useful here: I found out one more thing: It crashes, if the dial is touched, after the safe opens. Since I'm using the mousewheel for dialing, I seem to overshoot the last number one in five times. Reproducing it with the keys also will lead to a crash, if you put in one more keystroke, as the number you'll need. So it looks like its not the opening per se, but dialing after it opens - even if the door hasn't moved yet. Maybe this can help to get to the bottom of this.
  11. Since this is a throwaway testbed, I gave it a go. "newest" comments from the blog are from 2 months ago... Hmm Search results are localised, and don't put me where I'd expect them to be. You know, e, g, Iranian content provider for movie downloads. I'm terrible sorry, but I'll pass.
  12. It`s no big deal at all. Loading this mission makes me want to replay this wonderful mission again. A big thank you
  13. Well, the picks are now properly visible in 2.06/64, all three difficulty settings. But another minor thing came to my attention, when you approach the table with the first readable crouched, the scroll will highlight, but isn't frobable... Was the same in the "old" version, but I only noticed that now, after the guard threw rocks at me and I crouched to avoid them (I threw some objects at him, for shit and giggles ).
  14. Looks like a 2.06 issue. The picks are invisible, but you'll get them if you "frob around".
  15. You do realise, that both are the basically the same machine, with different components? You could downgrade the first you've linked to 256GB SSD and it'll fall under the price of the second one. In terms of SSD size, I usually treat them only as system drives with some programs installed, but not as a data grave. My first SSD lasted for around three hours, that learned me the lesson, not to put important data onto an SSD pretty fast But to be honest, that was my only SSD crash ever (knockin' on wood). The Stealth series looks much like the younger sibling of my Ghost, so I like it
  16. If the weight is not weighting you down, the deal looks sweet indeed. When you are ready to spend this amount of money, treat yourself to the GTX 1060, it should make much more of a difference than the price increase. Caveat emptor, including the 1TB SSD will explode the price, no dual channel memory, colour rendering of 94% NTSC seems low and running Win7 will be still a bitch... Other than that, why don't we get this kind of deals over here
  17. Regarding the MSI you linked, 8GB RAM is the bare minimum for gaming, I can easily fill the 8GB on my gaming laptop to 90% when playing e. g. Doom 2016 with full eye-candy. So it is sufficient right now, but for the future you might want to at least have an upgrade path available. Even more a no go in my opinion, is a mechanical HDD. My laptop came with an SSHDD, but even that was a constant pain in the derriere. I upgraded to an SSD (like pretty much all my other systems run for years) and never looked back. The Acer looks more modern, has a much better video-card, enough RAM and an SSD. The weight would be a bit on the high side for me, too. My gamer is an Terra Mobil 1590 (a.k.a. MSI Ghost) that retailed for €1400, I picked it up used for around 900. It was a Christmas present gone wrong, it had only 6 operating hours and looked like new. That was probably one of the more unusual action gems At 2kg also a nice companion. Most of my systems are bought used, usually from professional refurbishers, including a one year warranty. That plus buyer protection should be almost as good as new, for much less money. There seem to be not much refurbished gaming laptops, though. Mostly you can get three year old leasing business laptops... [edit] The Asus ZenBook Pro series looks like solid lightweights. Prices are a bit stiff, though.
