Escape from Tarkov is enjoyable if you like a slower paced, hardcore realism type FPS. Graphics are nice, and tests the best rigs.

It's now open worlds and twitching, I can't keep up with it. I preferred small arenas and fast game play but it's gone into bizarro land. Isn't counter-strike still heavily played?

There is a new version of Quake named Quake Champions currently in early access, they've introduced abilities. Next patch coming out this month will have off-line bots available to practice with as well.

Fortnite's popularity with fast & skilled fps gamers says otherwise. Though it is third person of course.

Fallout 4. It's a shooter....partially. Plus lots of mods for it, more than you could ever want.

Battlefield 1, for what it's worth.

Try replaying older games for nostalgia. Half-life etc.

pubg is reportedly slow. Like boring slow.

Fortnite is great if you graduated from Club Penguin.

Overwatch.... I didn't think much of it. It was too easy. I uninstalled it in disgust after getting "Move of the match" after playing for a few hours. Has this stupid "Special attack", and all the classes have a special attack. and it has this animated look like Team Fortress 2. Not my cup of tea at all.

Fallout 4 looked nice and is kind of fun single player.

Battlefield 1 is hard but good. Personally I like Battlefield 1, it's hard, and it's outdoors open maps. Vehicles, classes etc. Graphically excellent.

MidAir, I'll be trying out in a couple months.

Also, the latest Quake

Not sick of corridors yet?

Vehicles and open maps with trees and planes are fun. Tanks and trucks and sidecars. 64 player maps. Maybe I'll try latest quake after MidAir. Almost done with BF1.

New Quake is free right now whilst E3 is on, get it now and it's free forever. I've played a lot of BF1 (and still playing it) so I'm pretty keen on BFV when it's out, hopefully we can check out the beta soon.

Was fun. I downloaded Quake Champions tonight. Skipped tutorial and played a Team Death Match map.

We won, I got 11 kills and got fragged once towards end of map. Then I got meaner with the weapon changes and these nubs were getting owned.

Took me 3/4 of map to work out what was health and what was armour on hud and ground. What are those yellow things? Ammo? I was just collecting everything and smashing these poor nubs. Will play again. Within 5 mins I was hopping backwards over gaps and firing rockets all over. Missed getting quad by about 2 seconds. Worked out those armour things are green. Was fast and fun. Looked great.

Can't find any files for the game on the PC except the cfg's.

Here is my cfg:

{ "GAME_CONFIG": { "backendLogin": "[\n 8,\n 1,\n 16,\n 207,\n 153,\n 217,\n 140,\n 14,\n 24,\n 4,\n 32,\n 62,\n 42,\n 112,\n 117,\n 220,\n 54,\n 25,\n 116,\n 79,\n 190,\n 143,\n 50,\n 175,\n 87,\n 87,\n 70,\n 152,\n 12,\n 66,\n 25,\n 77,\n 221,\n 34,\n 144,\n 158,\n 68,\n 96,\n 193,\n 150,\n 208,\n 7,\n 67,\n 6,\n 19,\n 234,\n 88,\n 251,\n 229,\n 120,\n 92,\n 221,\n 66,\n 167,\n 24,\n 10,\n 86,\n 83,\n 16,\n 7,\n 104,\n 207,\n 32,\n 11,\n 21,\n 45,\n 154,\n 44,\n 32,\n 101,\n 109,\n 160,\n 232,\n 86,\n 188,\n 186,\n 51,\n 108,\n 190,\n 247,\n 237,\n 178,\n 158,\n 253,\n 18,\n 133,\n 113,\n 45,\n 255,\n 111,\n 132,\n 219,\n 43,\n 64,\n 214,\n 110,\n 163,\n 164,\n 32,\n 195,\n 64,\n 157,\n 49,\n 140,\n 102,\n 238,\n 240,\n 116,\n 33,\n 104,\n 66,\n 47,\n 50,\n 37,\n 121,\n 253,\n 69,\n 206,\n 118,\n 255,\n 53,\n 85,\n 139,\n 253,\n 181,\n 7\n]", "playlistSelectedModes": "quick_playlist_bots", "mouseRotateInvertVertical": true, "teammateHealthArmorIndicator": 0, "selectedDataCenters": "AWS-GameLift-Au-Sydney", "userId": "DefaultPlayer[000000004DEBC3E0 : UserProfile]", "delaySwitchWeaponEnabled": false, "teammateHealthIndicator": 0, "teammateArmorIndicator": 0 }, "cfg_version": 1 }

Can we mess with this cfg or does it auto write over, or does it not allow cfg tweaks? Can we do binds, exec files and stuff? I guess I can start googling this stuff.

Nice desk setup - i think i'll need to knock something up very similar - i have a bit of a mess in my den downstairs.. might see ya on there nmag - player name gr0nk

I'm not sure what happend to being able to bind stuff in game manually, used to push the button next to 1 and tinker which was pretty useful, might do some googling myself.

Strafe jumping is very similar, i just think of basket ball when you're being defended under the hoop with the mouse movements, bit like how a boxer weaves around - any tips here Python ?

Actually it was picked up from the road from someone down the street who was throwing it out.

Also if you're going to create an account to help you evade your post limiter you should probably avoid talking to it because that's really weird behaviour and I know your desperate for people to see you as someone who isn't completely f***ed in the head.

In most games you still can rebind all the keys, its just you do it through a keybind menu now instead of the console because its 2018

Oh fpot I'm not desperate enough to care. That's pretty strong language. Should I be triggered? You should get increased post restrictions for your divisive behaviour.

Quake Champions

Quake Champions runs well and was quick to install and be playing on a server. It auto put me in an easy match to start off. Intuitive and lots of fun.

More FPS

This game is a bit old now, it's cartoonish, but works well in cooperative mode. Orcs Must Die! 2. Cheapo and fun.


Key Binding

In many FPS games, even in 2018 there are far more functions that are available via console bar "`" than there are shown in options menu. We can run the console commands, but to save in a cfg file for future use gets more challenging depending what the game allows, and if it overwrites. For example, BF 1:

Love a good walk through on installation - props Nmag!

I have a wall ~ 4m long, and i was thinkin... having 2x2m benches - both with abilities to fold up to say 1.4m and back down to 1m, i've seen some top tier builders offices and the standing stations look good for a changeup - probably good for your health if you're at a screen on the reg

oh yeah.. damn 2018 khel damnit it too 2019..
