I miss you filthy animals! It's been too long. I'm definitely attending this year baby.
Just wanted to share that, because it really touches me in my special place. Prepare your safe spaces boys.

General Discussion / Battlefield 1 Nvidia Driver/direct x crash fix that worked for me
« Last post by Broken on November 07, 2016, 07:37:51 AM »
Kept having BF1 crash on me. Sometimes immediately on entering a map, sometimes at the end of the 2nd game.

I tried a bunch of different settings, editing DX values in profile data etc... and nothing has worked. NVidia and Dice have some issues to sort out.

I finally decided to try playing in a borderless windowed mode. Have played for a couple of hours in that mode with no crashes.

FITES Feedback / Re: FITES 2017 - New Hotel - Reviews are awful

Btw, not trying to be a dick, just curious about the situation.

No worries, I didn't take it that way. And I hope I didn't come off as one either... It wasn't my intent. I was just trying to understand where you were coming from. (And it doesn't always work the best to convey tone in text.) I just knew we aren't seeing it from the same perspective. :)

No problem. I just wasn't sure how to respond to your experience of empty seats since I haven't experienced that myself. We will be sending out more information about the event in the near future like we do every year. However, since some of you guys are ready to roll I can let you know a few things now.

While the Park Inn venue has been a great home to our event for many years there is no doubt that it had it's flaws. It wasn't the nicest/cleanest place, the rooms were not that spectacular, the prices for the room (even after discount) were not what I would call acceptable given the quality, the ballroom had low ceilings and was pretty cramped with 250 attendees (which leads to a hot and smelly venue), and it had stairs to traverse to get to the ballroom which really stinks when you have to carry a chair and gaming rig.

The new venue will allow us to provide more elbow room for our attendees, high ceilings for better and more stable air flow, lower room rates, a working PA system, no stairs to enter the ballroom, and a friendly staff that really appreciates our business. It was almost a no brainer. We also had no plans to expand while we were looking for a new home. We were fortunate enough to find a place that fit the bill AND allowed for a slightly larger event.

If you call the front desk to reserve your room, please let them know you are coming for our event and use the FITES discount. You can get a room for $69 a night. If any of you are greatly concerned about the quality of rooms (Park Inn really wasn't great either), you can request a room in the Aspire which is more expensive and not eligible for our group discount (It is closer to the ballroom though). Another option is the Red Carpet Inn .5 miles down the road for $50 per night.

I was originally referring to the announcement which eluded to increasing space to accommodate 300 ppl, it made it seem that the venue change was only to increase capacity, not combat existing price hikes. This is a really big change for everyone, and the announcement kind of caught us by surprise, without a lot of detail.

Btw, not trying to be a dick, just curious about the situation.

Can you elaborate on the space issues? I still see a lot of empty chairs each year, I fear there will be a lot more if more space is attained.

I honestly am not sure where you are getting that information. We have sold out all of our winter events for the past 10+ years. There are people that don't get there until Sat morning and a group of people that leave Sat evening after their tournament but we always fill every seat. We added 50 more seats this time around but the room is so spacious that everyone should be more comfortable.

I am afraid I don't understand your question. We've changed venues to keep ticket prices down. The Park Inn was asking for more money without providing anything in return. This was the only venue we could find in the area that met our space and power needs for a cost that wouldn't drive ticket prices up to an absurd price.

As for seats with no one sitting in them... We cannot help that some people are just no shows. We don't have the ability to oversell a venue. A ticket matches to a seat with a set amount of power available. It looks like there were, 25 last year and 20 the year before, that snuck past check-in or didn't show.
