Support Group / Itunes starting with plex Media server
« Last post by Fr4g0u7 on March 26, 2016, 01:22:51 PM »
I was having a problem with Itunes starting when it wasn't listed in the tasks or startup entries.  It was driving me nuts and I finally found the fix and thought I'd share with you all.  The fix involves checking a box in the Advanced preferences in Itunes to share XML data.

All these videos can't be played on other sites.  You may have to change some youtube settings to get the embeds to play.

thanks for letting me know (fixed).

Checked out the videos. Pretty nice game play! Definitely picked up on a few things I need to try out.

great!

I have 80 hours played so far. You can find me on UPlay then under F3ar0n. It's a lot of fun. We should get more peeps in so we can tear up DZ. I'm fairly geared out at this point (lvl 30 6/8 golds)  :2thumbsup:

You can join Zimmy and I then Decepticon if you're looking for DZ action.

FITES Feedback / Re: FITES 2016 LAN - Feedback
« Last post by shank on March 18, 2016, 02:31:57 PM »
Network was amazing... best ever in the past 5 years!  FITES staff was friendly as always and the overall organization was on point.  We [vG] anxiously look forward to attending the annual event every year - already counting down the days until FITES 2017 :)

Preface:
FITES doesn't even have to host tournaments, but they do and they are awesome for it.  When we [vG] choose to sign up for tournament(s), we typically get even more excited for the LAN than we normally would which is a great feeling leading up the actual event. FITES 2012 will always hold a special place for us due to the incredible BF3 tournament. FITES has remained a "No Cash Prizes" event and I REALLY hope this never changes because it would cater to a whole different crowd.  That said, since the tournaments are more casual, its not fair [for us, the attendees] to demand certain things when it comes to the tournaments... so I understand that makes my only gripe below a double edged sword.


Tournament length from start to finish. This year, the 3v3 RL tournament started ~12:30pm and didn't finish until ~8:30pm. Our team personally had a FOUR hour window between games which is rough because you never want to be "that team" that isn't available when the next game is ready (***cue one BF3 team in the past which will remain anonymous who decided to go to Benihana for 2 hours when we were ready to play***).  So, what happens is you are in this constant state of 'standby' and it really messes up the flow of the LAN. Even with the casual mindset, I feel there should be more time allotted between the tournaments and/or less tournaments overall. I believe this year there were multiple tournaments that didn't generate enough interest and were scrapped altogether (Street Fighter V (?), Mystery Tournament, DotA 2, etc) and there were still crazy delays with the tournaments that did happen. Let's be real, they are either 1) never starting on time or 2) overlapping and/or lasting HOURS longer than they should be. The latter point is what starts to create that ripple effect where a tournament can literally take 3/4 of a day. To FITES staff defense, they do their best to accommodate this overlap, but it can quickly spiral out of control... In conclusion, tournament structure should be reworked so that either A) a loose (but strict) set of tournament rules are enforced or B) attendees that sign up for tournaments need to make sure their teams are ready when called upon otherwise they are disqualified... let's see how fast the tournaments start/finish with something like that in place 8)

Support Group / older intel/amd dual-gpu laptop
« Last post by The Nstuff on March 17, 2016, 07:34:57 PM »
Had to let others know about something that really saved the day for my parent's laptop.  They upgraded to Windows 10 on an older HP laptop with the switchable graphics (between the built-in Intel and a discrete AMD).  That solution was always a problem and with Windows 10, it actually caused the laptop to take 2-5 minutes to boot, another 2-3 minutes to suspend or return from suspend, etc.  The culprit was an older version of the Catalyst drivers that neither HP nor AMD would provide an updated version that would install (drivers straight from AMD detect that it is an HP and refuse to install).

Solution was some modded drivers:  http://leshcatlabs.net

They specifically support this type of scenario, Intel/AMD switchable drivers.  They take the latest drivers from Intel and AMD and hack the ini/inf to allow them to install in addition to some other mojo.

Running a drivercleaner tool, then installing the latest LeshCat driver fixed the issue.

Had to share.

FITES Feedback / Re: Tournament Request: Rocket League
« Last post by shank on March 17, 2016, 12:53:48 PM »
Really, really glad these ended up becoming a reality! Only gripe is that the 3v3 tournament in particular took over EIGHT hours to complete... will elaborate more on this in the FITES 2016 Feedback thread. Thanks again and I cannot wait to see where Rocket League is a year from now!
