    Corona Virus

    Shit! Now they are closing all malls, theaters, museums, stores, gyms. All shows and sports events suspended. With 3 deaths they are taking severe measures.
  2. They did spent more on the SSD part as Cerny said back then. The difference in brute performance is very small. Even less than PS4 x Xbox one. 2 ~ 3 Tflops of brute force is not going to be noticiable most of the time. They are both relying on pretty much the same raytracing tech, same shaders tech, same CPU, same GPU. The differences lie in different approaches for cooling and power consumption.
  3. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2020-inside-xbox-series-x-full-specs Anybody waiting for it? Eurogamer has published all specs. There is no secondary low power CPU for OS, nor dedicated DDR for it. It seems that PS5 is going that way, repeating the same idea of the PS4. The SSD is embedded inside, you can't swap it. If you need there is an external port to plug in a dedicated external SSD. The SSD of the next consoles is about 20x ~ 30x faster than HDDs, meaning that lots of games are going to require a high speed SSD to run or they might make the PC versions require a lot of RAM to compensate. No CPU throttling, the clock of the CPU is static with two modes. One with higher clock and no SMT and another with lower clock and SMT. GPU also has static clock. Lots of dedicated stuff for raytracing, on the fly decompression to mitigate bandwidth usage and more flexibility to program the graphics. 13,5GB of RAM for games, 3,5GB for OS. But due to some technical limitations not all that RAM is clocked at the same speed, part of it has lower clocks. There is much more control over input latency by game makers.

    Corona Virus

    They just decided to suspend all classes and activities here. They are afraid that if more ppl get sick, the health care system is going to be overloaded.

    Corona Virus

    In my uni there have been two confirmed cases. They are discussing wether or not to close it for the moment. Nevertherless, they are already cancelling all events which have 100 or more ppl.
  6. If they can run doom eternal at 400 fps, this means that if you have 16 or 20 cpu cores, they could support 100 monsters on screen at the same time. https://www.tweaktown.com/news/70929/doom-eternal-maxes-out-at-1000-fps-on-pc-theres-no-upper-limit/index.html
  7. I think he suffers from some mental health condition. He's so extremely akward in public.
  8. They've mastered organic levels. The "inside a monster" feeling is so real that you never notice anything missplaced, oddly placed or that doesn't feel natural. Even when you zoom in the surfaces look so high res and high poly, as if you could touch it and feel the roughness of it. They are going to win "best graphics" for this. Compare doom eternal to that Elemental techdemo from years ago.
  9. They most certainly had to hold back on a few things because the CPUs in consoles aren't much great and they are still having to deal with HDD loading times. If it were exclusively next gen the game would probably have much larger scales.
  10. win10, firefox. Noticed that this is happening in mapcore when I paste a vídeo, before saving it.
  11. Everytime a video is displayed on any forum, you can no longer stop it.
  12. Renamed Steel to Steel Complex. The white lighting was bleaching the whole map. I decided to redo all lighting and put in more detailed geometry. https://mega.nz/#!aJhGXKgJ!HVsxf-uEId_pXSYw3v393glYZqXjzifIk-jRBvUFnMg
  13. https://www.andrerieu.com/ How could I miss this guy? He makes me want to learn Dutch and go to Netherlands jsut to watch him play. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg7fFQwP1tTQebybKegBXZA Sister act is great too.
  14. Changed the name of the map to Mountain Outpost. The "chapter 3" in the name was to indicate a series of maps, but I never made them. Added some more lights to it and changed others. But now the map just causes crashes that I just don't know what is wrong. I was trying to make bots play this map alone and end it in monster hunt mod, but something is going wrong. I've discovered that the counter used to trigger the events can fail to count properly, rendering the map broken because some events fail to trigger.
  15. Found this on some unreal server that redirects downloads. I thought it was gone for good. Back in that year I looked at Grit-Tourney ant thought "Making a map like this should be easy! let's build something similar". And then I made a maze. If I were to do it today I wouldn't make it have the same lighting and texture everywhere. It's very easy to get lost.
  16. Found two funnel maps I made a long time ago. The second one was lost, in 3 hours I rebuilt it. It was really a funnel shape and nothing more, with a warp zone to create the illusion of an endless fall.
  17. Found a map I made for mod called monster hunt. Years after I made it and I've found some ppl discussing the bugs in it.
  18. According to the site that has them, they date back to 2004. Deck16 with sgtech textures. Morbias arena with ancient theme.
  19. I think I'll quit japanese classes. For this beginner level I think it's just too expensive and I can go on with textbooks alone.
  20. I watched the reviews. It's better than Force Unleashed and has some references to Jedi Knight games. But they rushed this game. Lots of bugs and low performance.
  21. Diablo is much more straight foward than path of exile. Less cluttered.
  22. Virus, or the file system itself changed some security setting.
  23. I'm watching a series of videos about abuse. The youtuber who does it is a Phd in Social sciences, but is currently shifting to the field of psychology and studying about abuse. He discusses what is abuse, emotional abuse, narcissim, victims of abuse, how to identify an abuser, etc. Lots of ppl are watching his videos and having that enlightment moment, some of them are thanking him because now they understand why their mother did what she did, or why a woman would fall in love with an abuser. The videos are all in portuguese, so unless you know the language, there are no subtitles to help.
