  1. We were very successfully continuing our face to face campaign using some free tools: Zoom for video conferencing. Google Drawings (part of Google docs) for the shared map Google Docs for shared notes Discord for private chat to each other and the GM. We also had an on-line die roller that would show everyone the results. Discord has a bunch of tools for that. This let us play pretty well. The big discovery for us was the map on Google Docs. The GM prepared a document and opened it, sharing it with us. We could then mark on it, or drag tokens aro
  2. I met Robotech_Master on Live, and depended on his guides there. When he became a GM here I had a chance to talk with him more, and learn more about him. He was a busy contributor to our community, as well as several others. He will be missed by many more than just us, and hopefully left a positive mark on the world. This is a very sad loss, for a foolish, pointless reason. Rest in peace, R_M.
  3. I'll second this. A favorite of mine is: '/lfg Running story arcs in <whatever zone>. Room for 7!' I'll just put that out every time I finish a mission (or two if they're really short, and if it's really quiet) and pretty soon the team is full and we're charging along doing stuff. Finding some active global channels with a lot of people is also helpful - look for AT or server channels. Most have a "Giant Monster, task force, etc." channel by various names and those are often full of people who are happy to come and do something. This is
  4. I played quite a bit of AD&D, but never really enjoyed it much. Turns out I was playing with a lame group; the game was fine, but having people always multiclass the weirdest things and never know what spell or action they wanted to take, and having games cancelled because someone's kid was having their third birthday or Christmas was only NEXT MONTH got really old. Eventually I found other people to play with who were more into superheroes, and they introduced me to Champions, which was great and I still enjoy. We had a regular gaming group playing Pathfinder unti
  5. I hadn't noticed this forum! Moo2 will occasionally demand some attention from me. The interface and graphics are SO dated, but the game play is still really good. There's a game called Startopia that I love, too. They're remaking it and I'm hoping they aren't messing it up. The beta is... lacking. The snarky British humor in the original and the weird combinations of things that happened were great. You need ALL the trash bins.
  6. As a note for people who're missing Resume_info.txt, it's storing your password in plain-text, which is a terrible idea. If you want to log in more easily and still use a good password, I suggest a password management tool. There are several to pick from. (Personally, I use Keepass.) You tell the tool to put your password for this thing on the clipboard, then paste it in to whatever. This works very well with City of Heroes and lets you use a complex password without having to bother knowing it. A borderless full-screen game works fine with alt-tab to get to the pas
  7. Let's see... I've been distracted by Skyrim lately. Had never played it before so am discovering it all newly. I spend a lot of time just wandering around the map, finding things. I did get a Valve Index VR headset, but haven't messed with it much. I tried Skyrim VR and was HORRIBLY dissapointed. Bethesda really did a crap job on that, and it's unplayable on the Index. (Literally: It depends on buttons the Index doesn't have, because it's mapped it to an Occulus.) Elite Dangerous is really amazing in the thing, though, and I'm waiting for the new DLC for Euro Truck
  8. First thing to try and change, in my opinion, is FSAA, or Full Screen Anti-Aliasing. Turn that down to 2x or off and see if that helps. It reduces greatly the number of pixels being drawn by the card without killing off other effects.
  9. We do not use canned responses just because they are common in support. Both the reasons you give there are true and both are important. Consistency of replies is important. It keeps us from saying things we perhaps shouldn't. It also means we give better replies and nobody gets tired and types "done" or "ok" and closes the ticket. Those aren't really great replies. It also means that if I have to give you directions, I don't miss a step because I've given these directions six dozen times, and leave you wondering what you're supposed to be doing. Our canned responses have all bee
