That's the point. Those videos reinforce the possible reason why Tripwire would ban or revoke your game license if you grief like this mygot guy does. He wasn't even using hacks, but rather just abusing the ingame mechanics. He does this for nearly a year too and despite several people trying to get him globally banned, they fail on the main forum due to a no name and shame policy.

Anyway, have fun with Daddy Howard at your next session.

What tips specifically?

Don't understand the interface? Economy is mysteriously tanking for reasons you don't understand? Can't defend yourself vs Great Britain? Successfully got to the mid game and can't figure out how to keep your industrial score in an upwards trend?

I guess I'm asking what level of play you've gotten to.

Oh sorry was late.

I started a Modern Age mod game and the country I chose can't seem to make any brigades. I managed to change the government to a facist one to increase miltary spending and managed to get over 3000 soldiers in the population, but still can't seem to make any brigades yet.

I thought that would be enough to at least make one brigade, but I'm pretty confused.

How important are tariffs? Currently have it set to 100%.

No.193438

>>193410

That's a ridiculous tariff and will probably starve your population. The purpose of a tariff is so that if your country makes grain, then your population, including factories, will buy your grain before they buy somebody else's grain. Even 1% accomplishes this. Sure, you can set it higher to get more revenues, but at some point your people won't be able to afford grain. You can also set it to negative so that factories can buy goods that you don't make at reduced prices, but this is a bad idea to do for a long period.

Unless the mod in question changes the way brigades are made, you don't even need 3000 soldiers to make a 3000 soldier brigade. They all have to be sitting in the same province, though, not just the same state or the same country.

Maybe it did. There's only one province and I have over 3000 soldiers and just can't make any brigades. I even switched to jingoism since the nation started with anti-miltary, but nothing's changed.

Let's have a community thing while it's still possible. The last short game did well, but due to inexperience and rushing things we ended up with AFK players and lots of AI's.

What is this game?

The game is real-time but played over several weeks. You can Iog in at any time of the day to check the progress of your ships, view the results of battles, and issue new orders. Perfect for conflicting time-zones and work/school.

Each Star you control will automatically build new ships, raise money for upgrades, and research new technologies.

Your job is to negotiate with the other players, dispatch ships to capture new stars, and choose where and how to upgrade your existing stars and technology. Expanding your empire.

No meta-alliances and roleplaying is encouraged. No need to install anything, game is fully HTML5 coded! We are starting at 22:00 GMT today, which is 2 hours from this post.

I'm trying to find this one it was like an ecylcopedia, but you could click through worlds (City/suburbs/rainforest/snowy mountains) and it would have like a gif clip to animate between them and some sounds. You could click on almost any object and it would tell you about it.

Is anybody excited for this even a bit?

I sure am, but mostly because I bought a year's subscription to planetside 2 before I realized how awful it is and it fucking re-occured on me before I thought it would, and it automatically bought another godamn year sub on me.

So at least with this I can try eq2 or dcu or something.

So yeah, my $10 a month now gets me access to more games…although they are SOE games.

I am kind of afraid of checking out their other games in case I like them, since it's soe, and they *will* ruin them.

But I suppose at this point I have nothing to lose, since the year sub has already been paid for.

Is it true that the only thing left to do if you have all the freemcboot stuff on your usb, is to put ulaunchelf onto a dvd-r disk and it boots its self when you turn it on?

If so, how would i be able to play my ps2 iso game files?
There is no instructions how.
Would i just put them on my usb and when i click on the launch elf menu, to select the file from the usb or something?

No.193347

game compatibility is known to be bad on usb boots.
you'd be much better off soft modding with freemcboot and burning your games.
browse gbatemp for more information
make sure to check method/ps2 model compatibility
the easiest solution of all, of course, is simply emulating

Forget about learning new program shit, i feel a tumor growing just trying to read the text.

If i play games from the theoretically already installed mcboot/launchelf whatever the fuck, would it just start the disk on its own as soon as i turn on the ps2 with the disk inside, or would i have to go onto the launchelf option and select the disk from the directory(would the option of clicking on the disk be in the directory?)

You need to patch your discs with ESR and then select ESR in free mcboot, so technically the disc won't autostart.

I wish I could help more, but I never used this and used to have a fliptop for my PS2 and swap magic. I now just use PCSX2 for PS2 games.

If you're playing from a burned disk, you just have the one game. Which should load through on start.
Or it might have been initial menu > start game
its some shit like that
doesn't fucking matter
the entire process is simple
1. get freemcboot on the ps2, there are a number of ways to do it. I covered the closed-tray sensors and did the swap-disk method with 007. then loaded the program off a usb
2. apply launchelf to iso file
3. burn new iso to disk
4. put in and play

but again its much easier to just use an emulator, both to set up and play
