  1. Halo Coming to PC

    It says on the Steam store page that it features "Halo: Reach along with Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, the Halo 3: ODST Campaign and Halo 4"
  2. Halo Coming to PC

    Hopefully it supports Linux... if only
  3. PayPal supports recurring payments
  4. CSGO Suggestion

    You wouldn't want to just do a flat point adjustment, Elo defines a function for determining the change in rating based on the ratings of the player you play against. It becomes a bit more complicated when you're dealing with teams, since Elo is intended to rank chess matches. As a rough estimate you could average the ratings for every player on each them, and then calculate the change in rating as if the team average were just an individual player's rating, and apply that change to each member of the team.
  5. My Age: 24 My Talent: Just looking for something to work on in my free time. Relevant Experience: SM DeadZones - SourceMod plugin that lets you place 'deadzones' on a map. Players in deadzones can neither be shot, nor shoot out. Useful for protecting spawns. sm-ext-rpc - SourceMod extension for making RPC calls between plugins running on different servers. Includes an example implementation using the extension to create a simple chat plugin allowing players to communicate across servers. RPC messages are cryptographically signed with a shared secret to prevent abuse. sm-ext-discord - SourceMod extension exposing an API to plugins for sending and listening for discord messages. discord_reports - Simple SourceMod plugin using sm-ext-discord to allow players to report rule-breakers to a discord channel. Automatically builds new versions with GitLab CI on push. There's a bunch more stuff on my GitLab Hours/Week: 4-8 mostly on weekends
  6. They do state that the promotional price is valid for as long as you renew the server, so it's still a great price. I just don't know how long it will be available, I got the email about the promotion on Saturday, and since then they've already sold out on the GAME-1 servers. And to be fair even $59.99 a month for a 4790k and 32 GB of RAM is a great price, similar servers easily run you in the $80 - $100 a month range elsewhere. Even the OVH MC-32 is $89.99 per month, and as you say the 4790k and 6700k perform similarly (PassMark even has the 4790k out performing the 6700k)
  7. I'm curious if the GAME-3 is the most economical option, I was under the impression that srcds was CPU limited at higher player counts, I would think with 32 GB of RAM you would max the CPU before you ran out of RAM. Also worth noting that GAME-1 and GAME-2 are 30% off for as long as you keep the server if you order them now, the normal prices for them are $49.99 and $59.99 respectively.
  8. OVH and Digital Ocean are both solid providers, and both offer per-hour rates, so if you're just using it to practice you can spin up a VPS for only a couple of hours when you're messing with it and end up paying a couple a cents vs a few dollars.
  9. Is there anywhere to get more info on the Linux issue? The mailing list link in the reddit post is dead. Edit: Nevermind, I was able to find a cached version of the thread
