#447546 iMac Pro lands 14 Dec

Posted by macdude22 on 13 December 2017 - 07:11 PM in Mac Hardware

This is not a home machine, this is the machine ESPN is going to bolt into their news vans.

#447547 Feral's upcoming project?

Posted by macdude22 on 13 December 2017 - 07:12 PM in General

I have madcatz c.t.r.l.i that works fine. A little chintzy but great for Final Fantasy and Sanic.

#447655 Civ VI released for iPads!

Um, wut?

I don't really need the Collector's Edition with the Civ VI iPad case, Gandhi figurine, cloth map of the world, Prima Strategy Guide, etc. Just the regular $9.99 version would be great. I think that is what Feral released Rome Total War for if I recall correctly which is certainly an impressive technical accomplishment itself not to mention a great game.

Total War was a much older game (though still very excellent). Still, I don't see people paying 60 dollars for an iPad game. There's some loss of value because there's so much OS churn games frequently fall out of compatibility. It is worth the 30 dollar price to never sleep again.

U need to go outside for a bit bro. I think you've been looking at the cathode ray a bit too long.

#447747 FW ->TB2 ->TB3 -> MAC - does this work?

I can confirm a FW hard drive works with this chain o apple adapters and a tBP.

And you should know the Claptrap character is by far the worst one to play in the trilogy.  His random action skill usually hurts you and your co-op buddies during a fight.

tBC looooooooooooooves when I play clappy. It reminds him of the time he got the clap back in '71.

#447782 Offical Mac MMO list.

Posted by macdude22 on 06 January 2018 - 04:13 PM in Mac Adventure, RPG & MMOs

I have fond memories of Clan Lord as a wee young lad in the 90s. I'd tried to go back a few times over the past decade but the lack of players and the truly 90s nature of it was too much. I will pour one out for our classic game in arms.

#447802 Star Trek Discovery

Posted by macdude22 on 08 January 2018 - 06:22 PM in Off-Topic

The Orville is great! Anyone who discounts it because “Seth McFarlane” is doing themselves a serious disservice. STD (lololololololol) is a passable Battlestar Galactica clone but it is a terrible Star Trek. Worse than Voyager, and that’s saying something.

Skip STD, grab a hulu 7 day trial, and binge the pure joy that is The Orville.

I love my Xbox One but...


Wow. You'd think that something would have been learned from all the outrage and even lost revenue (Star Wars Battlefront II?) during the previous year of the loot boxes but NO!

It's gonna be so awesome getting drops later on that speed up purchased downloads, grant exclusive DLC, make your games start faster and more! I am so excited about 2018! This is going to be amazing.

The way I read this is they will be rewards for playing games you're already playing, no? No money required? Not sure where all the hate is coming from.

#447875 Most missed hardware feature

Posted by macdude22 on 12 January 2018 - 01:07 PM in Mac Hardware

There's some sort of rotation bug in iOS 11 I have seen iPads and iPhones of all manner exhibit this behavior. I can never replicate consistently or I would open a radar on it.

#447997 Answer questions for the Feral newsletter!

Posted by macdude22 on 23 January 2018 - 07:44 AM in General

Games we want you to port?

ELEX. I've long had a soft spot for the quirky, yet engrossing games of Piranha Bytes. I originally played the Risen series on 360 and then went back and played some of the Gothic games via WINE. It sounds kind of like a hot mess but I can't help but pine for the medieval steampunk nonsense of ELEX on my Mac.

#448016 GeForce NOW for Mac - Beta Invite

Posted by macdude22 on 24 January 2018 - 11:31 AM in Windows Gaming

View PostIrishman, on 24 January 2018 - 09:18 AM, said:

So, as a follow-up post, is GeForce Now able to sync your Steam purchases, or do you have to buy games all over again? BTW, I just put my name on the waiting list. :)

Games are not bought through GeforceNow, but there are only specific games that are fully supported. I.E. I can sign into steam and run any game (well try to run) but it will have to reinstall on the cloud computer every session (and if they don't have steam cloud your games aren't saved) . Supported games are instantly available from any session with save support.

Without knowing which compromises they mean, we can't judge if they're acceptable or not. Knowing Apple, I'd assume the worst (backward compatibility isn't their forte) until they clarify.

Ya, without compromises could be "run 32 bit apps in a VM"

Yes, this. Presumably Apple are working on this. Right guys? Guys?

In the meantime, I hope my 2012 13" MBP soldiers on.

FWIW the 2nd gen tBP keyboards feel slightly nicer (but still terrible) and we've only had 1 I've had to submit for warranty work vs. 23 first gen tBPs (almost always the space bar dilling up)

I had a tap around on the 2nd gen KB recently and I didn't hate it, but I am concerned about it failing. Mildly encouraging to hear your experiences with them. Any observations re: huge-ass trackpad palm rejection?

I don't use my tester 1st gen tBP very much but have not had any issues and have heard no complaints from any of the natives. I think Apple must have fat palm rejection licked.

#448078 Avernum 3: Ruined World released for Mac

I don't think I finished the original Exile 3 first time around, but I have no excuses now.

I spent more time than I care to mention playing Exile & Exile II on a Quadra 610 back in the day (68040 power!), then the Infinity Engine games and Diablo II appeared, and that was that.

(Incidentally, I'd be interested to know if Jeff has plans to update his scenario editor (Blades of Exile/Avernum) to the v3 engine.)

BoA was a financial failure and its nowhere to be found on the redesigned site (which I don't like btw, I'm old and allowed to hate new things).


I think it's fair to say he won't ever do another Blades game.

#448102 Blizzard announced bringing World of Warcraft Classic at Blizzcon

Posted by macdude22 on 03 February 2018 - 08:37 PM in Mac Adventure, RPG & MMOs

Like I want to take them at face value about the complexity blah blah its like removing the oregano from spaghetti sauce. I do a little development at work, at a certain point you archive *cough lose* old versions etc... but Nostalrius was managing just fine until the C&D so idk I guess hire those folks to fire up a couple blades and be done with it.

clocknova, it's not a bad show but it is terrible Star Trek. It would be an ok standalone gritty Sci-Fi show.

I'm not a Star Wars fan but I liked SW:TLJ. Saw some pew pew and swish swish, got a few laughs. A wild Laura Dern appeared. 8/10.
