#434240 Apple does more damage to Macs than anything

Posted DirtyHarry50 on 15 May 2015 - 05:25 PM

I am annoyed that Apple refuses to make a tricked out desktop gaming rig with a cool case that has flaming apples on the sides and a special version of OS X where NOTHING is flat. I'd like this system to be a small tower but big enough to accommodate a full sized GPU card. The system should feature easy access for upgrades and repairs. The system specs should feature top end components selected with gaming in mind. It should come with 3 years of AppleCare standard. I would prefer it to be priced just slightly over the Mac Mini line. Apple has more money than they know what to do with. It is time that they gave back to the community, the neglected gaming community in particular.

I am a reasonable man. I only want what is fair.

The Holiday Sale includes hundreds of popular (and unpopular?) games on sale! All manner of stuff to get for your beloved, hated, or friend or otherwise.

Every day there will be flash sales, so be sure to keep an eye on that section. Something you are waiting for could drop like a rock in price!

Also, a bundle of games will be showcased on the home. New bundles are planned throughout the two weeks of sales.

As a small business owner myself...

I say, if there's sufficient cash for it, go for #3. If not, kill the IMG site and kill the MGS forums and merge the IMG forum with the MGS.

An active, friendly community forum for a dead news site and a dead forum for an active retail store site, all run by the same entity, makes extremely little sense both from a business and a workload perspective. I would like to see IMG survive, but if worse comes to worst, taking the active site and pairing it with the active forum seems the best option.

EDIT: And if you DO do that... for the love of all that is holy, don't just tell everyone here to move. This place's long history of discussion and problems solved makes it a cornucopia for searches. That's a big asset.

Whenever I click it, it keeps telling me I have reached my limit for votes today. Yet, I have never voted a thread ever before lol. I guess there is a bug somewhere, or setting I have set too strict haha.
OK, I've fixed this.  Members, Admins, IMG Writers, Developers, and IMG Pro members should be able to vote on the topics.  Let me know if you are in one of these groups and cannot a vote a post up or down.  That said, I not sure what use this feature will have, but here it is.  Each person gets 5 votes up and 5 votes down per 24 hour period.  Let me know if you think that is too much or too little.  I think the votes should be limited or it will be abused.

Maybe we should rename this thread to "Apple does more damage to Macs than anything".

#432007 Inside Mac Games - Rebirth

Posted the Battle Cat on 06 December 2014 - 09:30 PM

Oh burn!  Dude that was a burn.  Burn dude.  Burn.

Anybody that wants to write reviews or news I can add to their own group for the permissions.  I've already created the IMG Writers group, I can adjust their perms to create new threads in the IMG News section, anyone can post a reply.  That group is simple to duplicate as an IMG Reviewers group.  One person can have perms for both forums or just one depending.  This is all junk I've done before.  I hate to see the news and reviews go.  That is good stuff because the writers are real gamers and not industry todies.

Unfortunately this is still the internet.

You could mail me your reviews and I could scan them in, though.

Please choose any option that keeps this forum open. I haven't posted here in a couple years as children and life just overwhelmed me and pushed me further way from gaming and social cyberspace, but I always liked this forum and it's members (glad to see most of you are still here) and came back here tonight for some old knowledge that likely doesn't exist anywhere else on the webz anymore. This forum community deserves to live on....

Does anyone else see this as being basically Team Fortress 2 skinned by Blizzard, then? Or is that simply me being jaded and curmugeonly at this point?

#428195 The End of Halo Online [UPDATE: Or not!]

Posted devoid7 on 16 May 2014 - 12:01 AM

I posted a Mac patch that can be downloaded from http://macgamingmods...hp?f=43&t=18764 - it uses the new master server. If you might remember I had also posted a patch so that Halo would run under Mavericks a while back. Besides this there is still HaloMD which has never used or relied on gamespy.

I have no idea what you guys are talking about, but it sure would be cool if both titles finally made their way to the Mac ;)

#434281 Apple does more damage to Macs than anything

Posted Janichsan on 18 May 2015 - 03:23 AM

I was surprised how little Yosemite's UI design bothered me in the end. I'm not enthralled by it, but I also don't hate it. I found that I pretty quickly got used to it, although the gratuitous transparency is sometimes irritating. What bothers me more about Yosemite is the copious amount of bugs and performance hitches.

That said, I do not agree that Yosemite would be the worst version of OS X in that matter. It's the worst released after Snow Leopard, but there were definitely worse OS X releases before that. Part of the problem seems to be that Apple does not really seem to bother any more with fixing bugs: Yosemite still has bugs that first reared their ugly head in Lion (like this one), and I guess the current amount of problems is mostly a matter of pure accumulation over the years. That Yosemite changed more than the previous releases, and thus having more opportunity to introduce new problems certainly didn't help.

My biggest hope for OS X 10.11 would be that Apple does for Mac OS the same what they are apparently planning for iOS 9: a Snow Leopard style upgrade with no (or few) new features, and a focus on bug fixes and performance improvements.

My opinion regarding iTunes 12 is quite similar: it's not really good, but not as bad as some make it. For the most part, the changes to iTunes 11 aren't that big. I'm p*ssed that Apple has removed the option to sync bookmarks with iDevices for good, though (which surprisingly seems to bother almost no one else).

The Mac App Store is another example of Apple seemingly not caring anymore. In the four years since its inception, there have been virtually zero improvements to it. It's a pain in the arse to use, and it's a pain in the arse to troubleshoot.

And regarding the new Photos: I dabbled with it for 10 minutes or so, before coming to the conclusion that it will not supplement, let alone replace Aperture for anytime soon. I'm not even sure if it could properly replace iPhoto.

On the topic of Apple's hardware, I'm getting increasingly discomfortable with the direction they are developing. For long years, Apple took pride in building machines that not only looked good, but also were well serviceable. I clearly remember a Steve Jobs Keynote where he introduced a new PowerBook (I think) and spent several minutes talking about how easy it would be to swap memory and the hard drive. The above mentioned G4 Cube was not their easiest serviceable machine, but the ease with that you could get to its innards was testament to Apple's design approach.

And now we get an ultra-thin Macbook, that might look sleek, but is underpowered, has a crappy keyboard, a single port and is basically built to be a disposable product. Design over functionality.

Pretty much every review I've seen so far was raving, so Obsidian really seems to have done an excellent job. Another Kickstarter win for me! Yay! ;)
