#446856 Battle Chasers: Nightwar

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 15 October 2017 - 08:38 PM in Mac Adventure, RPG & MMOs

I'm surprised no one's mentioned this polished-looking game. I've bought a lot recently and am waiting for a really good sale.

Battle Chasers: Nightwar
( MGS )

Review by Fevir. Pronounced like "fever." :nods:



#446855 Heliborne

So I just ran into Heliborne whilst perusing new macOS games on Steam…


And the first video that popped up in a search for reviews on YT…



#446840 Feral stop selling boxed games

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 13 October 2017 - 10:32 AM in General

Referenced from XLR8YOURMAC!, an understandable announcement from Feral;

"With download delivery continuing to sweep all before it, we have with regret decided to stop selling boxed games."

They've included a list of games that will be available in-box until the end of the month.

#446746 Best Mac Computers for Gaming 2015

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 06 October 2017 - 03:09 PM in IMG Reviews Discussion

Well I've kept my computer able to run the latest for about 8 years, I suppose I can see what Apple's MacPro offering will be next year.



#446737 Best Mac Computers for Gaming 2015

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 05 October 2017 - 08:17 PM in IMG Reviews Discussion

In these trying times, as a Mac gamer of the 90s... wait, it's still the 90s, right?

—a Hackintosh is the only reasonable gaming machine, as I was saying.

Ellie, "...stop trying to make 'fetch' happen, it's not going to happen!"
I was wondering if that was just an English colloquialism.

:w00t:  SHADDAP! I'd buy all three! Tomb Raider was really damn good in the action, graphics and control, I love CodeMasters' works, have never played Bioshock 2 and damn do Feral make good ports!



#446676 High Sierra vs Bootcamp Partition

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 01 October 2017 - 01:33 PM in Mac OS Related

Being that my video card isn't flashed, if I get stuck in that situation it'll require my swapping in my backup GTX680 to see anything before the login screen. :glare: I'm going to have to really in the mood for some Far Cry 3 or Skyrim time.



#446671 High Sierra vs Bootcamp Partition

Is this because you formatted to APFS?

What was the topic here again?



#446667 macOS 10.13 - High Sierra

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 30 September 2017 - 12:04 PM in Mac OS Related

An interesting article from Bombich Software, creators of Carbon Copy Cloner; Think twice before encrypting your HFS+ volumes on High Sierra

With no warning, if you choose to turn on encryption on a hard drive with no installation of macOS on it, it will be changed to an APFS drive then have encryption enabled.



#446662 Shadow of Mordor Benchmark Videos

I'm finally enjoying this game. 1. I knew I was going to have to use a controller for all the controls but 2. this game was even taxing the GTX970 I had (or was the GTX680 the last time I tried this game?). Now, with the 1070, it (and most games, IMO) probably plays maybe as well as it would in Windows with a GTX680, which is pretty darned smooth. Yes, I see the few graphical glitches—the bees look like cheap origami, but I'm finding it more than bearable too.
Updated to macOS 10.13, NVIDIA released their updated Web Drivers, graphical glitches, gone! :w00t:



#446644 Virtual Programming's Upcoming Projects

Caught ARMA3 on sale, $20. Just getting a black screen with white pointer on my setup. Virtual Programming have done their signature work again. Can't find a way around it.
After 10.13 upgrade I tried installing Dying Light and ArmA III again... I could see the background 3D graphics in DL's menus now, actual game won't load though. ArmA III? It works! :w00t:



#446550 GTR2 wrapper & FF working

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 16 September 2017 - 03:18 PM in Mac Racing & Sports

Is there an online walkthrough you use to guide you through the process? I'd love to get Revengence working again. Thanks.



#446389 Feral's upcoming project?

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 23 August 2017 - 04:27 PM in General

Well, as I've about as much chance with this as with the PowerBall; take license of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance so it'll f@#$ing work again, and, for that matter, help out with Dying Light (so it'll work with NVIDIA cards) and take on ARMA 3 so I could hold my breath for some competent builds (you can probably guess who've been working on this one).

Later games? How about; Vanquish, Little Nightmares, Bayonetta, NieR:Automata, Sniper Elite 4, Titanfall 2, and damn would I love a port of Fallout 4! Anyway, tell the police I started holding my breath shortly after posting this, and that's why I've died. :sabber: lol

#446338 "Say 'Hello!' to 'Ryzentosh!'"

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 21 August 2017 - 04:14 PM in Mac Hardware

I love being antagonized for posting an opinion that could have been left at, "yeah, it's hyperbolic" rather than allusions to being unacceptably out of bounds. I also have kids of whom I don't like to post pictures and information of online because I feel it's my responsibility to allow them the choice to do so when they're older and, hopefully, more responsible. Is that "a lot of paranoia" or "ridiculously hyperbolic?" Really, tell me how to be a better person.

Here's a YouTuber who was a programmer for Microsoft for around ten years that has a few videos about Windows 10's spyware/privacy invasion (yeah, in the Creators Update, too). I try to limit drinking the EULA KoolAid.

Spybot, thank you, that's useful. Is this the proper link? A few come up when searching.

I think some people overestimate what Microsoft is collecting. Rest assured Google knows much more about you than MS ever will (unless you don't use any Google service, of course). Besides, you can disable most (all?) data collecting without the registry. I think there's lots of paranoia there.
You're right, I should be okay with giving Company XYZ all my data because I know and accept Company ABC already has it.



#446322 "Say 'Hello!' to 'Ryzentosh!'"

Posted by UmarOMC1 on 19 August 2017 - 07:07 PM in Mac Hardware

If I NEEDED a new computer right now I'd absolutely go with a Hackintosh for the bang for the buck. I'll wait for what Apple's MacPro offering will be otherwise (then a Hackintosh might be my only option depending on specs/price). A new computer will require, if I decide to BootCamp, the steal-all-your-data-with-every-update [without Registry editing magic] Windows10 as Microsoft dropped support for Win7 on newer processors.

I saw it available for purchase on my Wish List, then only saw a Windows logo (tl;dr—it's coming…).

'Bioshock Remastered' will be out in a week's time. I do hope 'Bioshock 2 Remastered' will follow swiftly.
'West Norwood' somehow dropped off the Radar.
Being able to continue where I left off would be cool... then being able to play the game anew.

Oh that'd be so awesome! I just finished Tomb Raider about a month ago and that was a heckuva lot of fun!
