Gaming / FinnWars - WW2 Multiplayer FPS
« on: 06-12-2015, 18:12:03 »

So, the guys behind FinnWars mod for Battlefield 1942 have started collecting funds for new standalone version of the game, which is using Unreal Engine 4. For those who don't know, FinnWars mod concentrated on battles between Finland and Soviet Union during World War 2, with bit of Lapland War (Finland vs. Germany) in the side. I'm not going to go in much detail here, on the Indiegogo funding page the devs tell pretty much everything about the game, but I copied the feature list here for everyone to see. For what I've read there, it sounds very cool and the theme is of course very close to my heart. Me and many other Finns here in FH community have our roots in FinnWars community.

Video games should be made less addictive, say experts

Video games are too addictive. That's according to researchers who think game-makers should make games less compelling, before the government is forced to step in and tackle addiction.

Around one in ten gamers are "pathological" players. In extreme cases, gamers are bashing buttons in sessions lasting 90 hours.

New research from experts at Cardiff, Derby and Nottingham Trent universities, published in the Addiction Research and Theory journal, identifies massively multiplayer online roleplaying games (MMORPGs) as being more conducive to addiction in players.

The problem with online role playing games like World of Warcraft is that they're open-ended and ongoing, as opposed to console and PC games that follow a story to an actual ending.

Many MMORPGs show messages warning players not to over-do it, but the researchers believe game developers and publishers need to go further and adjust "the structural features of the game design" to prevent players from getting so deeply absorbed.

Elements that could be changed include "the character development, rapid absorption rate and multi-player features, which could make them addictive and or problematic for some gamers."

The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment (UKIE) says there are measures in place to make sure players enjoy games safely, but admits that, "like anything enjoyable in life, some people play games excessively."

The researchers warn that if the problem is not tackled, the government could be forced to follow the example of China, where a time limit is imposed on games.

It's a big poll, I know. In the thread, only one message per user is allowed, telling your birth year only (Of course you don't have to post a message if you don't want). No chatting. I made it by birth year, because age changes, birth year doesn't

Mine is 1991

Off-Topic / Finnish parliamentary election, 2011
« on: 17-04-2011, 23:04:10 »
So, the elections are over now. Iso jytky (eng. big bang) happened, small party True Finns became the 3rd biggest party in Finland.

So: here is the new parliament:

200 seats total

Party - Seats (lost)
National Coalition Party - 44 (-6)
Social Democratic Party - 42 (-3)
True Finns - 39 (+34)
Centre Party - 35 (-16) (former prime minister party)
Left Alliance - 14 (-3)
Green League - 10 (-5)
Swedish People's Party - 9 (+-0)
Christian Democrats - 6 (-1)
Others - 1* (+-0)


Party ideologies:
National Coalition Party: Liberal conservatism, Pro-Europeanism
Social Democrat Party: Social Democracy
True Finns: Finnish nationalism, National conservatism, Social conservatism, Euroscepticism, Populism
Centre Party: Centrism, Agrarianism, Liberalism
Left Alliance: Eco-socialism
Green League: Green politics, Green liberalism
Swedish People's Party: Liberalism, Swedish speaking minority interests
Christian Democrats: Christian democracy

Now, I myself must say that I'm horrified. These elections were catastrophe. How can a party like True Finns get so many votes? Only thing I'm happy about that Centre Party lost so many seats, but that's about it.

"The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."

- Sir Winston Churchill

Now, your opinions people.

I need your help!

I've been having problems with downloading MAPS from servers in games and mods which use Source engine. I mean in all of them, for at least two months now. It downloads all other files (skins, music etc.) but no maps.

Fixes I've tried by now:

typing console:
cl_allowdownload 1
cl_allowupload 1
cl_downloadfilter all
sv_downloadurl = “”
net_maxfilesize 64

I've also turned off my firewall and changed to unprotected port in router.
And I've deleted cache files.
And tried running games as admin. Steam too
 I'm really running out of ideas.

oh, and it happens with all accounts.
