Games / Re: [NEWS] Nintendo finds new uses for cardboard with Labo
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:30:01 PM »
To be fair you can buy the game separately and download the cardboard designs online [1].


Really any game by PixelJam is amazing but Gamma Bros is one of their best. (clickable)

Tank battles in this game were always enjoyable but no know I knew ever had it,  so I never got to try out multiplayer.

Actually a good RTS game for the DS, I really like the 3 time periods (pirate, medieval, and mars mission)

Thank forget we still have mail-order, though.
Pretty sure that's been removed from the website too.

When I read the name it reminded me of this game:

(Which was actually a pretty good game but I can't find anywhere to buy it anymore, RIP)

Anyway I'm not sure if 3 different blockland inspired projects are a good or bad thing, may the best man game win I guess.

Would the BLID 12137 be old at this point? Oh well I'm just going to make my semi-monthly post and go back to lurking now.  :cookieMonster:

Well someone logged on and bombed the tower so you'll just have to take my word for it.

If you log in to Age of Time, as of the time of posting this there is a giant stack of horses.

Oh yeah and this one horse who moved up in life to become a sales clerk.

Start your conspiracy theories now...  :cookieMonster:

NXT, the new game client for RS3 is out! With improved graphics, render distance, and performance. (it even runs better than the java version in some if not most cases)

Click for full image
Here's a link to a reddit thread with more information and the trailer
And here's a link directly to the download page

Will it run steam games smoothly like GMod, Blockland, or even less demanding games like Battlefront ll with low settings?
Will Windows XP run fine on those specs and run it smoothly if not almost smoothly?
No to all, but not because of lacking specifications but rather because it's a different architecture altogether. Every raspberry pi is powered by a variation of an ARM chip (like the ones in smartphones) instead of a x86 processor (e.g. the ones used for actual 'computers/pcs'). In short, it won't run at all unless it's ported over or emulated (both are probably dreadfully slow).

It's not like the raspberry pi doesn't have it's uses though, you can use it as an emulator to plug directly in to your tv via hdmi, or use it to host a web/game server.

Help / Re: How to measure dedicated server performance?

Blockland servers are pretty much automatically running at maximum performance due to the engine not being absolute crap actually absolute crap works. The only comparable limitation Blockland's engine has is the rate at which ghost updates are sent, and you can always tell as a client if you're behind on ghost updates because you will see the "Ghosting" notification.
Noedit: If the CPU for the server literally can't keep up, the server application will hang until the CPU is free again. This causes the 'Lag' notification to show up until the server isn't hung up. Due to this, all you need to know for actual server load is your current network and CPU usage. The server application can only utilize one core of your CPU, so if you have a quad-core CPU Blockland will hang up at 25% usage.

Both are useful information, thanks. A shame the engine is bad at handling that kind of thing.

in-game netgraph i guess   press ctrl+n to get it
you can also use the cpu monitor on that computer or something
Not really looking for network performance, also it's a dedicated server so it wouldn't work either.
As for the CPU monitor I have one but I don't really want to see CPU usage, just performance.

/title. Is there a pre-existing thing to gauge this sort of thing?
An example could be the TPS system on a minecraft server where 20tps is running perfectly and on 5-10tps the CPU can't compute fast enough to keep up.

Off Topic / Re: Desktop Megathread 3 - Post your Desktop

Opinions or suggestions for my homescreen?
Right-click and view image for full size (resolution is somewhat bad because I have a semi-sucky phone and the only reason I haven't upgraded is because it's probably the best on the market with a slider keyboard).

I'll post my desktop in like 30 minutes when I get home. nvm

if i get a g3258, do you guys think i can OC to 4.0 GHz with the stock cooler?
Yeah, you can although you should probably do cable management and ensure you have good airflow.
Source: I did it
idk man this thing can hardly cool itself. I was getting above 65 on stock with my i5.

You'd be surprised, that CPU overclocks exceedingly well. Also 65 isn't that bad considering that the recommended safe temperature is under 80.
I normally get 50-65C on the g3258 on stock cooling when OC'ed as mentioned before.

Old thread is here.

Moved from Games because:
1. Off-topic is generally more browsed, meaning it can reach more players.
2. Servers have done it already so really we're just following the trend.

Here's a quote from the old post, new OP coming soonish.
I'm actually hosting lando's pack for him right now! Transferring the old map (or any part of it) is pretty much impossible, so we're starting anew.
It's 24/7 and on a dedicated server, here's the specs are in this post (to summarize, it's good).

Get the modpack (copy/paste this into the search bar of the technic launcher) -
The server ip is:
