Re: UPDATED list of MP players

Yes, disable morphological filtering. Wasted almost an hour trying to get my "weird, blurred, smudgy" BotF game to work before I went through the AMD driver settings. Couldn't even describe the problem properly on google, morphological filtering on this game was just too strange and too malfunctiona...

Re: Bad dev jokes

A version of the failed logon attempt joke got some chuckles at work, thanx! Apparently old Amiga computers would crash (BSoD-style) with a "Guru Meditating" error message. Apparently the joke is that gurus meditate while chanting the mantra "om", computer shorthand for "out of memory". A weak and v...

Re: Bad dev jokes

Yeah, I was hoping to prompt people to volunteer something newer.

These jokes were already old and tired back in the IBM days. But it seems there's nothing better to replace them.

Bad dev jokes

I always mix up halloween and xmas.
Because 31 Oct = 25 Dec.

There's 10 kinds of people in the world.
Those who understand binary. And those who don't.

Three programmers walk into a bar.
Bartender: "Would you all like drinks?"
1st: "I don't know."
2nd: "I don't know."
3rd: "Yes."

Re: Opinion question

Well, it is sci-fi, the treknobabble offers lots of explanations (speculations) about why cloaking devices don't allow weapons/shields/transporters/etc to operate when cloaked. Always avoiding the painfully obvious truth that the technology is meant to serve the story (and the VFX), it will look ver...

Re: Opinion question

Yeah, it's pretty evident the Federation could have cloaking devices, they understand the technology, they know how to build their own, and (ignoring Pegasus, Section 31, etc) they sometimes use cloaking/stealth technologies for nonmilitary applications. It seems like every starfaring race which is ...

Re: How do you building large fleets?

"... mess up the orders, and your superior ships circle of something" I have to admit great ignorance to the actual workings of tactical combat. I've seen fleet battles replayed (many times) with different orders, with a difference being 100% kills or 100% losses on the first turn. I've attempted (a...

Re: Star Trek Discovery (SPOILERS)

Star Trek used to allow "official canon" and "unofficial fandom" to coexist, side by side. Sure, even Axanar isn't pure canon, planet locations are different, ships are different, old and new characters are doing different things, things and technologies look different and work in different ways, th...

Is this engine already embedded within any of the mods from the All In One Installer?

Re: Combat. Tactics and helpful advice.

I'm surprised the Romulans didn't park a cloaked Warbird near the station, as well, whether specified in the treaty conditions or not. One liaison officer stranded on a (nominal) ally's military base doesn't seem like a very effective intelligence or counterintelligence presence, especially given th...

Re: Combat. Tactics and helpful advice.

Well you say your ships are Defiants and Excelsiors, among the strongest in the game. With 4-5 chevrons, Elite and Legendary. And since you've been training them up forever then you probably have massive advantage in tech levels. If your opponent's ship types, crew experience, and tech levels were r...

Re: Combat. Tactics and helpful advice.

Haha, I thought I must've somehow missed an episode or that maybe I was the only one who noticed. Didn't even bother to write her out of the story. She was simply never seen and never mentioned again, even the Romulans and Section 31 totally forgot about her. The Romulans also never seemed bothered ...

Re: Combat. Tactics and helpful advice.

I recall the Defiant's cloaking device was a one-of-a-kind "loan" from the Romulans. Along with the arrogant Romulan Tal Shiar officer who was assigned to operate (and guard) it ... although she mysteriously vanished after a few episodes and I think was never mentioned again. Of course Sisko blatant...
