Other Games / Re: What would you build?

These sales! Dammit.. I keep missing sales, every day, on stuff I have in my wishlist~!

*sigh*

: )

So...

https://secure.newegg.com/Wishlist/PublicWishlistDetail?ID=7089977

I really don't like abandoning my longstanding philosophy of: it's better to put the OS and Game on their own drive.. But.. When I first developed the philosophy.. we didn't have drives made from MEMORY.. Also, this is such a huge upgrade for me, that, any performance degradation from having everything on 1 drive... should not be noticeable.

Another thing about drives.. As I understand it, I can't run 2 of the fastest SSD drives at the same time. As I understand it I can only run 1 (M.2) Pcie gen 3 at... (Pcie) x4.

So.. given all that... I decided to stick with 1 drive for the foreseeable future.. Since I'm gonna do that, I may as well get at least 1 TB and it of course will run via the fastest interface, above. So, I upgraded to 1TB from 500gig.

You can have as many M.2 slots as your motherboard's expansion cards will allow.  Speed limits will be governed by the Motherboard used, of course, but because you only have 1 M.2 slot (or none) doesn't mean you can't add one on.

Another change, is, I decided to get what *appears* to be a really nice PSU that as a small bonus provides 20 more watts than my previous choice. It costs a little more but the reviews are so solid on Corsair, and, it's got a very nice efficiency rating and warranty, that, I decided to try a 'nice' PSU.

I stuck with the CPU.. The higher tier Ryzens just aren't doing it for me. I mean.. The Ryzen 3 is so damn cheap! Well, and, get this, you can't use any faster memory with a Ryzen 5 at twice the price.. So. Yeah. It's the bottom of the barrel Ryzen, but, I see no reason to go higher.

I lowered my memory speed.. The Ryzen 3 (and 5) don't directly support the speed of the memory I had previously chosen. So, I should see no loss in performance, and, I might gain some stability and I paid for the nicer PSU with the saved dollars..

My video card is on sale! If I buy it in a few hours.. So I probably should.. I need a shopping break, though..

I still like my motherboard choice - I like the 40 bucks I save on Wi-Fi, that, I can put into a nice board - like this one.

I was too tired to shop for cases....again..

SO!

The above is my latest. I changed my mind on Mouse, too. I'm not gonna get another MMO mouse. I'm gonna get the newest version of my last beloved Logitech cordless laser gaming mouse that is now at a beloved half price.. It has almost half the buttons of the MMO but more *usable* ones. The thumbies are also far superior (way easier to find and use), and, this model seems more rugged than the MMO. The MMO was definitely worth trying. I mean, how can you not want to try a 20 button mouse named MMO....? They are a good price when on sale, too.

I keep having this vision of having problems with my first SSD.. I think I have all the right parts, though..

Champions Online / Re: What's the haps??

Maybe I'll actually install it on the Windows laptop I got for Christmas, but that computer still doesn't feel like *mine*, you know?

No, I have no idea whatsoever what you mean. (*grin*)

You want to play. You have a machine with which to play. You aren't playing.

Plug that baby into your TV. I'd never squint out a game on a small screen if I could plug into a TV.

City of Heroes / Architect Machinima
« Last post by mioxert on Yesterday at 10:15:28 PM »
Now that there are working servers is there any way to use the architect to create machinima ?
Something like the abandoned project for the Titan Icon that enabled you to use emotes, animations, and power fx on any character.

I can't believe this thread was just a speculation/theory but, now it's became reality. I've come to conclusion that it's up to the person. I've been seeing a lot of live streamers that plays the game so it doesn't really matter.  ;)

City of Heroes / My new global name
« Last post by Dev7on on Yesterday at 08:28:20 PM »
Hey guys, back in the live servers my brother and I had to share my Dad's account which was @Nyght Blade on the Virtue and Freedom server. You may recognize my characters like Rouge, Dark Vines, Velo Fire, Eschaton Spectrum, Dr. Health and Pain and Zero Gravity. Now I don't have to worry about it anymore. My global name is now @Dark Vines. I play on Torchbearer and Excelsior. I jump between those servers every now and then. I'll see you in Paragon City and Rogue Isles.  :)

General / Re: Why won't the chat bind work for me???
« Last post by Korbian on Yesterday at 08:07:30 PM »
Psssst, "typing" is a valid command.   ;)  But only in Pchat, I think.  In game people used /afk but I think there was something that caused issues using it in Pchat so CW invented /typing.  Now mind you, everything I just said is from memory, except checking the wiki for the /typing command, so take it with a grain of salt.

And she's right, your version is way old.  It's probably not recognizing the typing command because it wasn't invented back when .99d was relevant.
