    Free games

    Haha, the 2006 Prey was nice and all, but the modern Prey is like a Deux Ex on a space station. A must-play for every immersive sim fan.

    Free games

    Can't believe nobody mentioned yet that PREY is free on Epic right now. This game is absolutely incredible! Loved every bit of it! You can also grab Jotun on Epic, which is short and nice, but obviously nowhere near the quality of PREY.
  3. EDIT: Oh, I see stgatilov already replied while I answered. Probably worthy of a code-review, once stgatilov is back online again.
  4. VS probably recommended to change to bitwise OR because a bitwise AND was used in the term before that and VS did not understand that what we actually want is a boolean. I bet if you changed it to AI_CREEP = (usercmd.buttons & BUTTON_CREEP) != 0 || (idMath::Abs(usercmd.forwardmove) <= creepLimit && idMath::Abs(usercmd.rightmove) <= creepLimit); , i.e., convert the bitwise AND result directly to bool, VS would not recommend to change the OR operator.
  5. Soooo, I just got the platin trophy in Sifu... xD Incredibley addicting game!

  6. Haha, wow. It's incredible, how differently people can perceive such things. I found the intro to be very intriguing, actually. First the dream with father to set the scene with a beautiful soundtrack and a drastic turning point, then the ship trip that serves as a short tutorial and to configure your character much similar to the Morrowind intro, then that mysterious veiled lady appears and does the unspeakable, then a dramatic showdown on the ship deck, and finally you're left shipwrecked on the coast of Enderal. All of that so mysterious, that I kept wondering what is happening here and so, I eagerly started playing to learn more about all of this.
  7. Aside from x64 support and some new post-processing features, the SE version apparently also comes with quite a few bugfixes and better performance.
  8. I've had zero issues like that. Hm... You did use Skyrim SE and the SE Version of Enderal, didn't you? Furthermore, there is a mod called "Enderal SE- Bug Fixes" that is also mandatory. If you have further troubles running the game, you can go to the SureAI discord and ask for help. The start is confusing and surreal, yes. That is by design, as the story is based on that. But clumsy and muddled? Here are some further essential mods I recommend, excluding high-quality-mods (except for the NPC-faces and hair mod) Additionally to these, I recommend to install "Alternate Conversation Camera", which gives you a nice oblivion-like camera view in conversations, and some ENB, preferably the pretty but berformance intense Steamin ENB.
  9. I finished the game now with an epic finale. Truly, an exceptional mod. Here are some screenshots I took while playing Enderal with a shipload of graphics mods. Spoiler-free https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pn3bwukgpr9pcqs/AAC3qv5iID_eOQ5NCh0utn_Sa?dl=0 Very mild spoilers https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qeezdnchqo962fr/AACm_gvYfCsY0Y_qArSMxNgva?dl=0 Spoilers https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qwh1l0q3w8w8l5q/AABVRIqctUBTDY_T9_88v8B1a?dl=0
  10. Consider it a special challenge for those who want it. The others can just pick an easier difficulty, so what's the problem here? Dark Souls would not have worked as well as it did if it was easier and allowed for quicksaves. It is the tension of being able to lose "everything" within seconds when you're not careful enough that makes players come back to the game again and again. It is exhilarating! Catering not only to casual players, but also to the hardcore-stealth players (like most Thief players think they are), who want a bit of a challenge, is a commendable thing to do in my book. So @kingsal, thank you for that! Please don't get discouraged by this minor backlash.
  11. Not being able to save at will creates a lot of tension, which might be desired by the mission author. As for me personally, I love the tension created by that. Every action you perform just carries that much more weight if you cannot reload right away and try again. Because of that, I always play with a very low "save game frequency" and only reload when I die. Not everyone thinks this way, obviously. Still, I would leave this decision up to the intend of the author.
  12. I finally gave Enderal a shot and this game is absolutely incredible. As a native german speaker, I use the original German version ofcourse, which features some really good voice acting. Almost all quest are actually quest-chains and very interestingly written. And the game has more in common with Morrowind than with Skyrim, which is a good thing to me. It could have been the perfect game, if they had described where you have to go in the quest text rather than relying on quest pointers, so that you could completely disable HUD and quest tracking, giving you that ultimate Morrowind feeling. It is an astonishingly good game regardless! As far as graphics are concerned, I modded the hell out of this game, as per usual with Skyrim. Right now, I have 60 mods installed About 10 of those mods relate to gameplay / quality of life improvements, but the rest is just graphics mods, which take my 3060 Ti down to 40 fps in some rather unoptimized scenes. Usually, I get 70-80 fps, 'though. It looks almost as good as some next-gen titles. Might post some screenies soon, if you want.
  13. I agree. Whenever I have questions about a game and cannot find a quick answer via google, my first instinct is to search for a Discord server. You usually get an answer in no time. Being able to interact with the devs and give feedback is also way more common via Discord than via some forums.
  14. I decisively reject to do any iOS support! Everytime I touched her phone when she had any problems with it, I got so angry about how stupidly closed-shut the whole system is, so that I decided I am not gonna do it anymore. If she wants technical support on her phone, she'll have to get an Android phone and that's just it!
  15. Yeah, she was really concerned about the watch 3 not working on her (hypothetical) future phone, so we ended up compromising on the Watch SE for 280€ and it made her really happy, so I guess the money was worth it. Anyway, I now realized, the fact that I don't understand the need for a smart watch, especially not one from Apple, has no relevance in this regard. If she wishes for one, I'll have to accept that, just like she has to accept that I spend tons of money on PC-stuff and games! I just hope it's not another gimmic that will be used for a few weaks and lands in the drawer afterwards.
