  1. My main problem with spanning using Nvidia was updates got weird. It works OK day to day, you just have to do a lot of fiddling every time Windows Update changes something. About half the time I'd come in and find the system only using one screen and claiming the others weren't working, and have to manually reinstall. I finally gave up and don't span the desktop, just leave it as three separate monitors. You're right that it seems to be three monitors that gives it fits. Never had any of those problems with the laptop that only has two external monitors attached through the Alienware 'external
  2. I could believe it. I've avoided GeForce experience for quite a while because of similar problems in other games. It has some nice ideas, but too often gets in the way. Besides, Alienware has their own more comprehensive system update utility. Only problem with that one is that it takes considerably longer for them to certify drivers, so if you rely on them you're often several revs behind. I suppose I could try another round of driver updates in hopes that somebody finally found the problem and fixed it. Another system I've found somewhat problematic for just day-to-day gaming is
  3. only 60ish, cuz I have all the dials turned up to 11. But it pretty much never drops even in the ugliest mixups. I could probably tweak things to get it up a lot, but there's not much point. (lol) (edit) I should clarify, the max I see is 60s, the lowest around 35 or so. I get better framerate on the laptop even though it's in theory a slightly less capable machine. I did a little work on optimizing CoH on that box, since it launches more reliably there. I use Mouse without Borders to be able to control either machine from either mouse and keyboard, so I've got a semi-circle of 5
  4. Almost hate to ask, since I have a viable work-around. Figure someone might know an easy answer, though, so here goes. Has to be something I'm overlooking. When I launch CoH on my Alienware Area-51 R5 desktop, it opens a window that is simply black. No matter how long I wait, nothing happens, and I get a standard "City of Heroes (Not Responding" error on the title bar. I am using Win 10 Pro & Homecoming Launcher, though the behavior is the same with Tequila and Sunrise. More system details below. However, if I add -gfxreset to the launcher, it works fine. I just re
  5. Don't thank me, thank the people over at Ourodev who got it working. I just noticed what they had done. Rebirth apparently has some talented people working with them, their version of the Halloween event has some fairly nice additions. I especially like the IO set that has a proc to summon Croatoa ghosts. Not amazingly combat effective from what I can see, but definitely fulfills the 'rule of cool'.
  6. Many badges do indeed have progress bars. So you can undock the badge window, scroll the badge you're interested in to the middle, and keep an eye on it that way. Doesn't help if you'd like to track multiple badges that don't happen to fall near each other on the lists in the badge window. For some sorts of badges, having a counter up at all times like that would be real handy for taking advantage of the opportune moment when it happens. As for the time required to implement, perhaps a polite query to the Ourodev folks would speed the process up considerably. Sharing IS kinda their
  7. I have no idea how practical this is to implement or enable, but I've seen it working on Rebirth, and /windownames lists badgemonitor as one of the possible windows here. It works similarly to the combat attributes monitor, but allows you to select any in-progress badge(s) using a right-click context menu and display a compressed version of the same progress information you get by hovering over the badge in the regular displays (see attached screen snip). Looks like a handy bit of functionality, and hopefully whoever figured it out is willing to share.
  8. It's that time of year again. The ghoulies and zombies and assorted critters of the undead variety are once again crawling from their graves to cause problems. So it's time for some rolling Halloween Event Leagues again. As always, I'm just updating the ongoing thread. (yeah, it's a necro, I'm conserving bits, there could be a shortage. Besides, it amuses me to have a necro post for the Halloween event.) I'm available 10/8 starting roughly 21:00 EST / 01:00 UTC / 02:00 CET and will be advertising in LFG and trying to organize Deadly Apocalypse, Zombie Apocalypse, Halloween Giant Mo
  9. I already had an Alienware back when that worked, and it was VERY handy. You could set it up so your lighting matched the color of your hitpoint bar, and started a low-key flash/throbbing when you got really low. I forget what else you could do with it, but that was the one that really worked well. You might scrapperlock and miss that your hitpoints were dropping, but it was a lot less likely when the keyboard started turning dire red and doing a heartbeat on you. I keep hoping somebody will look at that functionality and try to bring it into the modern era, it definitely worked well.
  10. I've been seeing something consistent with client crashes involving the market, and am able to reproduce the crash at will now. I've submitted several minidumps and described what I'm seeing. The crash seems to be caused not directly by anything you're doing in-game, but other processes you may have running at the same time. I first noticed it when I updated to the latest and greatest MIDS Reborn and had it open on the screen beside where I run CoH. I got 3 or 4 crashes in a row when trying to claim auction wins from the market. Closed MIDS Reborn, and the crashes stopped; I messed
  11. Striga certainly worked at one point, I have several heroes who got their mortician badge there. Haven't tried it recently though.
  12. Ok, now THAT is weird. I've been parked in a shop and not seen anything like that. Sounds like I need to move to Wentworth's. (lol)
  13. As discussed in this thread - Suggest that you look into lowering this interval slightly, so that people logging in on a semi-regular schedule do not think Entrepreneur is broken and actually get tickets more or less daily rather than only when they miss playing for a few days. As it currently works, since you (apparently) have to be logged off for 24 consecutive hours for a discount ticket to be awarded, if you log on every day you will see none. Which ironically makes a regular schedule for crafting and marketing a huge disadvantage and prone to mild confusion. Even better would be to
  14. I'll drop that idea into suggestions, and link back here rather than repeat the reasoning and discussion. I thought for quite some while that Entrepreneur was not working at all. Was not until I got some less played alts through that pair of day jobs I realized what must be happening. As you note, even lowering the interval by a few hours would make quite a difference in how often the discount tokens get awarded. Thanks. for the confirmation.
