Draw a picture of a bullseye between 30x30 and 45x45 pixels and I'll add it to the forums emojis.  It can't be one borrowed from another site, someone needs to create it for us. PM it to me and I'll add it.

Also assuming FPS, ranged.  Most melee isn't done well unless that is a characters strength, such as Brick in Borderlands who has entire skill trees devoted to melee.  Marathon got melee right, but still it was too weak considering the character is a badass cyborg.  One could however melee kill a Hunter or a Compiler without taking damage.

It looks like we may be looking at another software purge with beloved games and apps that only run on legacy systems.


At least it will be a change from Festival, though I'll miss the looting, burning and raping.


Thank you 2020.  May I have another?


#453140 Borderlands – The Movie?!

Maybe Cate Blanchett will play a Lilith as she looks back on her life as a vault hunter.

Found a link: https://variety.com/...oth-1234618913/

I think they will have to have CGI in this if only for the absolute carnage and the creatures... not to mention the epic and unearthly landscapes.  Marcus has stated that if you don't like the movie there will be no refunds, so you might want to rent it rather than see it in a theater.

Epic Games Store support finally got back to me about my question about the download size being 121GB for the Mac version of Borderlands 3 Super Deluxe Edition, here is their response after waiting 6 days:

Notice how not only just pasted a copy of the game requirements, which answered nothing about the discrepancy between the stated size of the game and the download size of the game, they gave me requirements for the PC version.

The Finest Tech Support.

Well done. :blink:

15GB left to download, if all goes well.

If I manage to get to play this game I am so playing a long range Siren.

No, The Operative. Who are you playing now?

The Siren.  For the action skill I use her phase grasp with the Allure singularity, Eternal Fist that seeks out a new victim after a phase grasped one dies, and Soul Fire or Blight Tiger which inflicts fire or corrosive damage respectively. I love this character, turns out she's a cat person.

I now have a shotgun called The Lab and the OPQ assault rifle I mentioned earlier. With them I easily finished my last Torgue arena and solo'd Malawan Takedown too.

The Lob, you have a shotgun called The Lob.  Me too, IMHO the best shotty in the game.  Shots are slow lobs but the effect is devastating.  I love my Lob, don't be looking at my Lob's ass.  Don't be doing that. And congrats on the Malawan Takedown.  That's one tough fight!

My most played video game would be hands down (and hats off), The Marathon Trilogy.  I spent an entire decade playing the game, creating maps and scenarios, creating websites dedicated to the game, and talking to Marathon gamers online starting with alt.games.marathon back in the dark ages to more recently here in the IMG forum.  It completely captured my imagination and taught me that FPS was a great tool to lessen the effects of wartime PTSD.

If you are looking for the Cosmic Frontier Override (Escape Velocity Override) discussion, I've moved it to it's own topic.

#453013 EV Override remake kickstarter

Posted the Battle Cat on 06 May 2020 - 11:05 AM

Ima lock this and split out the EV Override/CF Override into it's own thread.  I think it is well deserving of it. After all, it is being well received and a developer is here to promote and answer questions.

Posted the Battle Cat on 30 April 2020 - 09:29 AM

Before you start passing out torches and pitchforks it would be a good idea to study the "agreement nobody reads before clicking to agree to it".  A company lawyer worth his salt has probably included verbiage to cover this contingency.  Not taking sides, just sayin'.

Pretty sure I don't have old install disks of any flavor. I sold a lot of stuff to fund my first decent iPhone. But I'll look again because that would be easiest.

I have an OS9 install disk, with a couple CDs I burned with updates up to 9.2.2.  I'd be happy to loan it to you.

Your mind.  Adapt, improvise, overcome.  A weapon is no better than a club if you don't use it to it's best advantage, in a battleground of your choosing, with the tactics needed to prevail.
