To do list

    1. Sort out the spray error we were having ( it seems to only happen after map change - I think it is something to do with sv_pure ???)
    2. Add in our favourite custom maps
    3. Sort out Map rotation [currently fixed order as I am working out how to randomise]
    4. Re-Introduce Anti-stacking
    5. Re-Introduce TK Olympics

worked out how to get sounds to be played but will need to upload them to the GR server, as for 1v1 situations I think it will need some sort of event handler to detect the 1v1.

like wise - will need that for the TK Olympics

I think Winckle actually wrote a mod for this, maybe PM him?

Literally thinking of buying a gaming PC for a game that is typically the type of game I hate. A streamer I frequently watch on YT started playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, and it's so tense just watching. I tend to gravitate towards single player, story driven, turn based and not in the slightest shooters. The island setting and restricting zones reminds me a lot of Battle Royale.

I've been thinking about investing in a gaming PC for a while, did not have a great experience last time, I'll do a bit more research this time and hopefully have a better experience. The final chapter of Trails In The Sky being PC only is a major factor too.

Don't get one for a single game; get one for objectively better performance, a wider library and much cheaper games. Battlegrounds is hot gooseberry fool right now, but so was The Culling, DayZ and H1Z1 however people aren't paid to promote them anymore so nobody cares about them now.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Cheaper games was the big thing for me. I hadn't really considered the PC as a viable gaming platform but then one day I decided to upgrade my GPU and ventured onto Steam (and other sites) to find older current gen games for just a few pound. Plugging your PC into a TV and using a PS4 or XBO controller (both supported through Steam) gives you exactly the same gaming experience as consoles. My one complaint on Steam is the achievements, I'd prefer the achievements to count towards your level like PSN does where as on Steam your level is unrelated.

Yes?

Why? Your steam "level" is a meaningless behavioural conditioning trap to get you to spend more money on "trading cards" and other gooseberry fool. If I'm ever feeling sad or annoyed I look at the profiles of people who buy them - some with hundreds if not thousands of badges - and I am comforted by the fact that I'm not them. If that kind of thing really matters you can view the global rarity of steam achievements and show the rarest ones on your profile.

I just like the idea of all the achievements counting towards something.

I suppose you could always go and sign up for an account to True Steam Achievements or something.

I actually think the stuff you can do with your steam profile is way better than anything PSN or XBL ever did. Being able to use anything you like for an avatar, the profile backgrounds you get if you craft badges, being able to display rarest achievements or just whatever ones you're proudest of, being able to upload game artwork to your profile etc, it's miles ahead of the console offerings
