Assist Locks INI files On Windows
« on: Saturday, January 07, 2012, 19:53:05 PM »
Jonny, whenever Assist moves files and such, all the ini files get saved with Unix line feeds. On windows, this causes the settings screen and some other things to stop working in AA. Is this on purpose so people don't change settings in-game?

INI file converted to unix becuase that the way assist works, I am a linux man and that the way i roll.
the settings screen does not work because i don't load it. Not loading all the menus when you join a game makes it load quicker.

Those settings are in Assist and you can use the F keys to change them as well. You shouldn't really need to change them though, if your monitor is calibrated decently. Unless, you're trying to get an advantage, then I don't see you getting much help.

Good excuse. I guess since hacks are public, it's fair to use them since everybody has access to them. Makes sense. Nevermind the level designers that have properly calibrated monitors and design levels with a standardized gamma, brightness and contrast yet here comes a 15 year old gamer that thinks they know better.

Point is, with a properly calibrated monitor, you shouldn't have to touch those settings in-game. They're for people who are lazy/ignorant with crappy TN monitors.

I don't really think this is fair to bash him for this.

I have a properly calibrated monitor but i also have key binds set with GCB settings depending on maps and if i'm using nvg or not. Its nothing that is illegal or hack for an unfair advantage because any user can do the same and its all within the game settings.

As are hacks and glitches. Doesn't justify it because it's in the AA menu. Just saying the level designers built the levels with calibrated monitors and as long as yours is calibrated, you're seeing the level as they designed it. You're using it for an advantage, plain and simple. May as well set quality to lowest as well if you don't care about looks and feel of the map.

Spaghetti has flown everywhere. I made the topic originally because I was playing mAAps on Nate's server and this is the first time I noticed how much noob skill was involved in making them. Some maps like pball and aimfun are dark as balls because they arn't light properly (ambient brightness, etc etc and other editor terms that nobody knows about).

I didn't wanna exit the game to change the brightness setting so that why I complained. But then I remembered, I can edit the fucking maps. So I almost finished re-lighting and fixing pball yesterday so the enemy and shadows dont look the same at a distance.

Yeah, any user can do the same, but how many people that play AA for fun and not for competition know how to do that? This isn't the 2.8 competitive scene where everyone that was good knew how to do it, this is 2.5 where people come to play in public servers for fun. I'm not going to get into whether it is cheating or not, but this is 2.5 and nobody is serious enough about the game to need to do such a thing. It will give you an advantage here, that's for sure.

Calibrating your monitor should be the first thing you do the first time you use your monitor. Calibrate it and remember it's calibration settings. All monitors are different but calibrating them to a standard makes them display colors and brightness similar to one another.

 Personally, I prefer viewing games, watching videos and listening to music as it was recorded/edited/created by the person (professional) with properly calibrated electronics. If you call that absurd then you lose the argument.

windows 7
go to control panel
search "calibrate"
under display is
calibrate display colour

this will run you through a series of test to help u calibrate ur monitor from brightness through to making text easier for u to read

I dont know if mac or linux has this built in

See, even Skrewy knows and he needlessly has 16GB of RAM.
