    Just a word of warning, Quake Champions has Redshell spyware in the game's files. Epic Games (the developers) have not made any statement on the removal of Redshell. Be cautious when choosing to download Quake Champions.
  2. Welp... I got one of my Logitech Cordless action controllers, I tried to clean it out, and investigated why the right analogue stick was sticking, looks like the battery acid was eating through the control pad's circuitry.  Not sure where the problems from the heat end, and the problems from the battery acid begin.  At least that sale was cheap, and I have a controller for spare parts.  Still though.  *shudders*

      I had a problem with a Logitech corded controllers stick not working, it'd work, then not...I came to the conclusion they don't make great quality products. lol

      Which is sad because when i first started gaming on pc back in early 2000 logitech made some bitchen controllers hell one of them still works to this day (barely the sticks are looser then a 2$ hooker and 2 of the buttons are 5 kinds of sticky)

      Well, the Logitech Cordless Action is the best available pad for the Playstation 2.

      There's a reason why people seem to be making a bum rush on these, when there are so many Dualshock 2 pads littering eBay (including fakes being sold as new).

  3. The Chinese Wireless Dualshock 2 clones I got seem to be correct.

    The vibration motors work sporadically (I suspect that might be the AAA batteries I used), pressure sensitivity doesn't work that well (running the pads through Padtest, all the buttons and pad directions label as pressed with a pressure of 255[max] when pressed) and the pad is better than the official Dualshock 2 even though all the directions can be pressed down, but it can be a good enough interim pad until I can pick up a Logitech Cordless Action PS2 pad (I've been eyeing a eBay listing that had two for $20.50 with it's recievers).

      Good for you 

  4. Needed a replacement Dualshock 2 pad since the pressure sensors are a bit daffy on my old one.

    Bought 2 Chinese clear-white wireless compatibles on eBay.

    Here's hoping they get the job done.

      I take it you have a fat model PS2, then.

      Those things are built like tanks.  Weird then that the slim PS2 always seem to have more major issues than the "fat" ones.

      Gotta love those "cost-cutting measures".

      Isn't that just the original PS2? Why even go for the slim if it has that problem? Feels like Sony were trying to scam people with that version.

    4. Badguys



      There are several revisions of the "fat" model.

      The original (made in Japan) revision having the number SCPH-10000 had a rather bad failure problem that caused the stocks that flew off shelves in the launch window to return to the stores they were bought from. The mass-returns caused several scalpers to be burned on their PS2 purchases.  The launch model had no internal DVD playblack software either, instead relying on the user copying it from a pre-packaged CD to the memory card in Slot 1 (this is how the "independence" exploit had worked).

      The later revisions (made in China) of PS2 didn't have this issue.

      SCPH-39001 was the second revision that had nothing different about it from the original PS2, outside of a lower failure rate, and a different factory location, barring the ethernet adapter bundle that had the number SCPH-39001/N (I have the ethernet bundle from when I got it used).

      SCPH-50001 was the last fat model, and had the most changes, starting with no integrity checks when running Playstation (PSX) games, a DVD remote sensor near the power & eject buttons (I have the remote, but not a sensor), no i.LINK networking (Sony's version of the "IEEE 1394" standard used on PCs and PS2s up until 2002, possibly due to a new Firewire revision outmoding i.LINK), and a new laser which was more prone to failure than the last.  The biggest game affected by the last "fat model" hardware revision was "Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec", which only allowed for i.LINK parties in multiplayer outside of a 2-player split-screen match.

  5. My birthday gift to everyone here, is to ruin your day.

      Happy birthday! Now you are the same age as me!

  7. There's been so much anti-pirate activity in the past few days that I started a Consumer Watchdog

      What anti-pirate activity?

    2. Badguys


      Mostly lawsuits and anti-piracy tactics that hurt the consumers.

    Should Energy Drinks be banned

    I had a allergic reaction to potassium back then due to overloading on it as a kid. It hasn't affected me now (I drank Propel water flavorings, those contain potassium and I haven't got sick the week after I drank a 12 fl oz bottle of that), so it's a reaction to overloading on potassium. I've had the Powerade liquid drink mixes (Powerade Zero Drops), which look to have the same ingredients and I've had no issues with it.

    Should Energy Drinks be banned

    Remember that the big energy drink brands are mostly consist of Taurine (coming from the roots of Urine and Taurus (Taurus is latin for Bull). Also for future reference, ingredient lists on foodstuffs in general are listed by quantity used in the making of the item, with the first being the most used (Taurine is the 3rd ingredient on the ingredient list of a can of Sugar-Free Rockstar), and the last being the least. Those who drink stuff like Rockstar, Red Bull, or Monster are literally drinking bull piss. Kickstart only has a high amount of caffeine, but is still better than the other ones. Powerade is a sports drink, not energy. Sports drinks have potassium. I remember that as a kid, I drank Gatorade quite regularly, since my father would purchase carts of it from Sam's Club, but into the seventh grade, there was a reaction that I built up against Gatorade, causing episodes of sickness that happened each week, and ended with a vomiting episode. It was later discovered after a ultrasound had been done on me (I'm one of the few men to ever had one of those), that it was a mere potassium reaction, and I've been a bit weary of sports drinks since. The last sports drinks I had were the Mio Electrolytes (they would later be renamed to "Mio Sport") water flavourings. I've also had the Propel water flavourings, and I didn't take issue with the potassium in those, so I can say, that those events are done with. I tend to steer clear of the Gatorade products in case, though.
  10. Like... Not being a customer of Netflix? I haven't been subscribed to them since 2010. *smug anime face* I'm not a Comcast user either, since they don't cover my city of residence. I also never went to a cinema since 2008 (the last movie I ever saw in a cinema was "Cars 2"). I pirate everything as of late anyway. Heck, I don't even pirate anything new from Universal since it's mostly uninteresting.
  11. That happens all the time when something turns out to be a total letdown (read: defenders of Sonic Mania after people found out Denuvo got stuffed in, or people defending of Mighty No. 9). Also, people may defend it only to stop later down the line. It's referred to as either "shilling" or "buyer's remorse" based on the situation. I suspect since a lot of Netflix users constantly buy service months for what little good content is out there (and if it is actually good, it'll get pirated faster than if it was bad), this will continue until either the person isn't a consumer of Netflix, or the service inevitably shuts down (one of the reasons why I pirate what I can't get physically). Also, Dreamworks just admitted that Shiro is gay during a Comic Con conference, making the OTP that was the center of Studio Mir's extortion, part of the story. PIRATE EVERYTHING YOU CAN, BUY ONLY THAT WHICH YOU CAN'T.
  12. I'm unsure about you, but this She-Ra cartoon looks CalArts cheap. >Producer: Studio Mir I believe that's the studio that had been extorted by a bunch of Voltron fans after a studio tour. Their exchange was that pictures of a classified internal work would've been leaked if a fan's fanfiction wasn't made cannon. Lesson of Studio Mir's fanmade-extortion: Fandoms were and still are a mistake.

      Only knew about this artist for a month or two as well 

    2. Badguys


      Luckily the artist isn't dead.  He just suffered liver damage, but the family needs to relocate now because of the commie that exposed his whereabouts.
