What do you think of current anti-cheat measures in games? Are they effective? [submitted by Phoenix]
|They do a good job, I love them! DIE CHEATERS!|
|They could do better, but they seem to work at keeping the llamas at bay.|
|They should be more invisible. I want to see the game and not know it's there.|
|They suck. It's impossible to play a game without problems.|
|They don't work. I like to cheat, and I can 0wn j00 anyway, I'm a l337 h4x0r!|
|I'm a bot-camper and I got 0wned by them. *bows*|
Jube: I'm blissfully ignorant of all that happens around me. I wouldn't spot a cheater if they were running around on fire holding up a neon sign saying "Kiss Me, I'm a Bot!".
a madman: She's right. I saw it happen once.
f4nt0m45: They bring my poor 56k modem to a screeching halt, so I find them kind of useless. Besides if we stop cheaters entirely, where will Ice play?
Other than Q3A, what's your favourite Q3 Engine game?
|Soldier of Fortune II: Double Helix|
|Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force|
|Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast|
|Return to Castle Wolfenstein|
|Medal of Honor: Allied Assault|
|Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2|
|American McGee's Alice|
Pappy-R: Why, that would just have to be Retun to Castle Wolfenstein! I hear
there's even a PlanetWolfenstein out there for it! (RIP W:ET SP) *sniff*
a madman: If I'm cheating, JK2. "\g_realisticsabercombat 1" = wonderful, wonderful decapitations. I get paid to manage content on PW, too, so that means I should say it's great too. But it doesn't have the "force gank" technique, i.e. "jump over a bunch of stormtroopers, use force pull to sent them flying into the air, then watch them plummet to their deaths." I could do that all day.
Jube: This question could get me into a bit of trouble since I work on PlanetWolfenstein, but I have to say SoF2 gets top nods here!
f4nt0m45: Medal of Honor is pretty damn sweet, I'd pick RtCW but the zombie's were just a bit too much for me. C'mon, Nazi's smart enough to raise the dead, but not smart enough to realize attacking Russia in the winter is bad? Gimme a break.
Whom would you most like as a tour guide if you were given a trip down the hallowed halls of id Software? [submitted by N/A]
|A booth babe (because surely they hang out at id all the time!)|
Pappy-R: I'd like Donna Jackson aka "the id Mom" to guide me through and to
each office where I would have 2 hours to yak with each and every member of
the team. If you're gonna dream, dream big!
a madman: Well, Todd H. does have the hair. But I'm mightily disappointed that Tim Willits didn't make it on here. He's the coolest interviewee ever, and it'd give me the chance to bug him about how to add the flashlight to Doom 3 again... ;)
Jube: Todd H. *drool*
f4nt0m45: I'd rather just run rampant through the halls! So in the end, I'd
most likely be escorted by the id security.
While fragging in my favourite Quake game, my monitor is adorned with [submitted by TG]
|A stack of soft toys.|
|The Quake II action figures|
|Winnie the Pooh stickers|
|Grime, b34r. |
|Monitor? I have no Monitor - it's plugged into mine eyes.|
|My love shrine to John Carmack.|
Pappy-R: Little plastic dudes like Taz, the Q2 Iron Maiden (Q2 Tech floating above quitely waiting to do repairs), a Border Collie and Mega Byte (Reboot series). Man, I need a Shambler around here!
a madman: As much as I'd like a Shambler, I stick with taping up fortune cookies. "You like chinese food" - wisdom for the ages.
Jube: Plain Jane here, nothing on the monitor. But I actually did have a Q2 action figure that I won for sucking in Female Frag Fest '99.
f4nt0m45: Dust! Gotta have the dust.
My favorite community feature throughout the Quake series recently is... [submitted by Mr.Lake]
|Mods! Glorious Mods! Never play the same game thrice!|
|Music...uhm...yeah. ~"Baby! Baby! Baba-ay, I wanna frag you toni-e-ight. -- So don't be afraid, baby...just head into the li-ei-ight."~ (I'll get Nelly to bust that one out later.)|
|Player models...because Id Software and Paul Steed just don't "do it" for me.|
|Maps. A new level means a new game...and people who make maps are sexy (just play along).|
|Total Conversions...because you saw the screenshots and thought "I don't want to buy Quake, I want to buy Tenebrae."|
|Boobies! I mean c'mon, that was Quake's hidden agenda all along!|
|Quake and Quake alone is the lifeforce of the planet, and must not be forsaken!|
Pappy-R: As much fun as new mods are I'd have to say I lean towards maps, but
damn it's close!
a madman: mods. It's all about new and interesting ways to kill people.
Jube: The 3 M's - Maps, Mods 'n Models. Mmm.
f4nt0m45: Mods and maps are probably tied for me. Then again generally mods come with new maps, but they never have enough BOOBIES!
You are writing the most l33t mod of all time... your most promising feature would be... [submitted by SnowDrakE]
|random insulting for campers! "The fag is hiding over there! Hit him with a shovel!"|
|a weapon even Arnold has wet dreams about. "I'll be back with my infrared-homing full-auto barmaid launcher of major smackness +3"|
|no health! "Wait. Default model Bones? ummm..."|
|locational boobie damage! "Crash was gunned down by Dooms machinegun through her left nipple. +2 Frags boobiebonus"|
|politically correct physical dis-abilities! "Yeah. I am switching to mad-blind-old-man-mode now! Haha! *You did a backflip into the lava*"|
Pappy-R: The Random Mod. Everyone but me gets tossed to a different server
every 30 seconds and don't carry their points with them. I stay and
therefore, I keep mine. I think I could actually win on that....maybe.
a madman: Rockets. Nothing but rockets.
Jube: This barmaid launcher sounds interesting. Ohhh, a bar mod. Pretty much standard FFA until it hits "Last Call", at which point everyone starts launching their barmaids, with points lost for every spilled beer. I think I'm going to have to rush out and copyright this bad boy.
f4nt0m45: A nude Jube model! Everyone would die to download it!
You're fraggin and you're kicking ass when a disconnect sign squashes your lead. The first to feel your wrath is...
|Anyone within earshot 'cause they just got a sudden, searing splash of profanity|
|My keyboard get's it every time. Anyone seen my F, P and Home keys?|
|My mouse gets body slammed so hard I have yet to find the original ball|
|My desk gets it but usually comes out better off than I do. I am getting good at playing with this broken hand though.|
|We lose more Laval lamps that way...|
|I don't throw tantrums, I take it in stride. Spontaneous Human Combustion here I come!|
Pappy-R: Computer and furniture parts cost bucks. Yelling obsenities is free so STFU!
a madman: Fortunately my keyboard is an ancient model that could survive a direct nuclear blast, much less the fists of mere mortals. So I don't even bother. But I've been known to set random passerby on fire through sheer force of obscenities.
Jube: I've yet to kick ass... but if I was I can tell you I'd be some pissed off to lose my connection during this one time only event. I'd probably swear a lot and file the story under "something to tell the grandkids about".
f4nt0m45: My mouse, keyboard, and anyone within earshot receives the
punishments most of the time. They certainly don't make keyboards like they
used to anymore either!
