serious equipment. that video card is sooo overkill for GRAW. though. Hey, you can record full HD videos with it while playing. We expect a new YouTube channel to go up the moment you get that rig configured

I usually don't buy built systems, because they all have some weak areas. Our server is a Dell XPS I inherited from somebody who was throwing it out. It was dead. Why? More RAM was added (it has room for it) and the power supply wasn't up for it. Note, this is an i5 with a 135 watt power supply. 135 watts for the ENTIRE system. ridiculous. And you can't buy a third party unit to replace it, because it won't fit in there, and I bet the cables are proprietary. They all learned from Apple to sell planned obsolescence.

Anyway, if I were to buy a over the counter built system today, it would have to have the following minimum specs

AMD third generation Ryzen CPU (more bang for the buck than any comparable Intel - Ryzen 5 3600x is about as good a value as it gets, but the system will cost you a grand or more with everything else. The )
Nvidia GTX 1660TI or the new 1650 Super or whatever it's called (again bang for buck. See here https://www.anandtech.com/show/15041/nvidia-announces-geforce-gtx-1650-super-launching-november-22nd).

If there's no Ryzen with NVidia cards out there, then find the best bang for buck AMD card, as there are some that are very comparable, I am just not literate on their models.


I've been looking at upgrading for a while now, but I think I'll wait another half year or so. The prices on CPUs will continue to tumble as Intel is now looking at stiff competition. things are also getting much faster with each generation. Motherboards for the new Ryzen platform are still a bit expensive with mostly high end boards out there, but that will change soon. That's when I'll grab a middle of the pack board and decent CPU, get 32GB of RAM and a good 1650 or 1660 class GPU. The rest is just SSDs on the motherboard and mass storage. A grand will build a killer system. From Dell, that same performance will cost 1500 or more, I bet and it'll come with an anemic power supply in a tiny case.

Man, hope you can sort this out without a complete reinstall

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter / Map Update - We_Are_Sparta
« on: June 12, 2019, 06:53:15 PM »
updated the randomizer, ditched all special forces. 1-5-8 random now. Should be much less predictable, especially first couple of spawns we know so well.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter / Map Update - Quick_Decision
« on: June 12, 2019, 06:51:49 PM »
Went into the old code to make it more random, ditched most of the special forces, and adjusted difficulty trigger to 1-4-8 players

two tests had me finish on easy with 40-45 kills, so close to what we know, just different guys spawning. This was 4-way random per difficulty level, now is 12 way random.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter / Map Update - Wombat Anus
« on: May 11, 2019, 11:07:02 PM »
Removed the stuff that sucked on this map, added a few more marines in the sewer to give them a better shot at reducing the enemies waiting for us. I also dropped about 20 percent of the tunnel enemies and and changed a few percentages for some of the spawns. Tanks still there, chopper still there, final segment unchanged.

Note this is a new version - updated to fix some weirdness, although spawns are still rather thin on easy. Guess that's just the way it is.

remake of Grasslands terrain in very different direction. Stay close to the rail track once you get there.

UPDATED 4-27 - ditch the 4-24 version.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter / Re: Map called Avenues
« on: April 12, 2019, 11:19:20 PM »
Multiplayer maps in the game

Avenues - e.g. Nuke_from_Orbit, Pull_my_Finger
Church - e.g. Hold_my_Beer
Com station - e.g. Cholesterol_Hill
Downtown - e.g. Hunt_for_Cornholio, Righteous_Kill
Hollow - I don't think I ever used this - too small for OGR
Industrial - ???
Shanty town - e.g. Bug_Hunt, Fishmarket (Not totally sure - could be Suburbs, and suburbs could be this map)
Strongpoint - e.g. Left_Behind
Suburbs - e.g. Double_Tap
The cape - e.g. Charlie's Point, Sawmill, Staring_at_Goats
Warehouses -  e.g. We_are_Sparta, Danger_Close

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter / Map Update - Ruin their Day
« on: April 10, 2019, 10:41:32 PM »
More random, added smackdowns, changed the player count to 1-5-8 for the levels, and there's some lower percentages for base spawns (used to be 90 percent, now 75)

isn't that one of the deathmatch maps? I think we have many missions on that terrain - pull_my_finger, nuke_from_orbit etc

that's why I don't ever install this game and just copy the folder to another computer. It runs just fine from a folder anywhere on the disk. The installer only did weird stuff. I guess when you run it with the original exe you may need to do that, but not with the no-CD fix.

check permissions on the folder. change it to inherit all from parent. Clearly, you can run the game as non-admin, it's just the server settings folder it seems to demand more access rights.

Unclear how any of the sub folder permissions could change. 

in my install, users have full control, modify, read and execute, list folder contents, read and write permissions on /settings/servers, just like administrators

General Discussion / Re: flight simulator
« on: March 27, 2019, 10:36:04 PM »
any ideas on a good quality flight control equipment .

good used 737 Max 8 gear sitting around everywhere, but I hear everyone is after the Airbus stuff now

No clue about flight sims these days. Used to fly around in IL2 years ago, but got bored. Had some CH flight pedals and used a decent joystick for the rest. You can probably spend hundreds on much nicer stuff these days. I know in the racing sim world, you can spend thousands on nice pedals and wheels that don't make you drive any better :)
