As you all know TF2 is .. well.. great But I found a way to improve the whole TF2 experience even more :)
since I'm a proud owner of an G15 Logitech kboard
I have the ability to run some great apps which improve my gaming experience.
Since there are many many people playing our beloved TF2 game
and some of you may actually own an G15 or planning to buy some
new gaming gear I think this thingy is worth mentioning.
The smashD's TF2 stats
It's an app that shows some usefull info on the G15's lcd screen
usefull... and cool looking :P
here are some features:
- player class (I)
- server ip (II)
- map name (III)
- kills/frags (IV)
- point captures (V)
- suicides (VI)
- deaths caused by others (VII)
- kill/death ratio (VIII)
- deaths (like dieing from fall damage) (IX)
- number of kills in a row (X)
(suicides or other deaths wont reset this, only getting killed by somebody does)
- current time and time spent on current map (XI)
- number of times you've been killed the last time and its name (XII)
- button 4: reset statistics (manual reset, automatic reset is made on every map change) (XIII)
- button 3: (not shown in the image above yet) switch between main and stats graphs screen
- button 1: save current LCD output to tf2stats.png[img]
Feel free to check out Smashd's website for more info
And if you own an G15 help by using TF2 stats while playing TF2 :P and
leaving your feedback :)
The installation is pretty easy, and the app has got some awesome 3d animation thing going on :)
There are more apps like this to other games, nice macro options with G keys and other stuff :P if you are interested in G15
I would like to present to you my Gaming Rig...
It is my first build, I had some really shaky hands while building it.
Since I haven't before done anything like building my own pc :P
I had some issue's... actually a LOT of issues...
First of all I was working to get the money in my vacation :P which was no fun(lot of dirt and
filthy market paper flyers)... After I bought all of the parts :).. the LEGO has begone
1.. 2... 3... ..... 1.5 hour xD and wholaaa it's a whole!
but then I've turned it on... and there it was... The Beeep..
I took it to tech guy at pc shop... for about 5 times (he charged me about 20 euro's for each time :/ ) after fifth time he discovered it :/ my mobo was touching the case....
returned with the rig.. turned it on.... and.. hmmmmmm the colours seem weird :s
but this time I fixed it(kinda) myself.. I placed the memory dimm in different slot :P working!!!
then.. after 3 months I decided to change my vga to amazing 3870!! WoooooW
I bought it, set up the whole thing :P and I'm turning it on....
UT3 I thought....
dubble click . .
my pc shuts down :/
(forums... forumss.. forumsss)
I replaced my psu.. to an 500 watt extreme power cooler master and yuppie it works... kind of..
My pc often reboots it self when starting or shuting down the game.... :/
and the letters(links, windows logo and so on) are all weirdet out... different colour than they were before... + sometimes it takes two power ups for windows to log on :D .. I need to reset it because of the freezes.....
btw. I skipped few parts.. like missing parts and shit :P
And here I am waiting... and watching.. :P I wonder if it will explode 1 day xD
that was it :P a little story of my and my rig :)
ow.. yeah :P here are the specs
x2 64 4200+
extreme power psu 500 watt
white case (27 euro)
Here's my story.. on day (last friday) I was going to buy something at Media Markt, Europe, I'm going trough the store and then I've spotted something I've forgotten about. I've spotted a nice copy of Testdrive Unlimited... it was only 25 euros, since I have watched like a 20 trailers of the game and recently upgraded my pc to recommended level of new games I thought why the hell not.
So I was rushing to my home on a bike with speed of a ferrari thinking about how to pwn somebody,
but when I installed it and tried to enter some multiplayer in online mode.... it would give me a message how I "can't reach another player, connection problems" blabla or something like that.
And this is when it started, I went on the atari forum/support site and found dozens of guys like me who either had my problem or couldn't connect to server at all! There are guys who emailed the
atari but for a weeks hadn't got any answers... there were supposed to be some kind of patch some
time ago but there was nothinnnn..... So here I say Atari you do not care about me, customer, your cash. Atleast an reply on the forum would be nice......
the readme file about opening ports didn't help either....
You're gonna do something to prove me wrong???
How much of you gamers have recently encounterd such things... where you feel like one pissed of customer?
