Yeah I'm really fucking tired of this shit. I was thinking, maybe buy a new pad, the disconnections might be my pad usb being borked, but that doesn't explain the fps drops from 60 to 40 or 30.That's weird, I have zero problems with the game and I game on damned MacBook haha!
Only thing you can't do within Steam is binding buttons/chords to launching specific Steam games.You can use the Steam Input UI (it's built into both Big Picture and the classic Steam Overlay) to map the touchpad in a lot of different ways, to keyboard buttons, or combinations of button presses. If MSI Afterburner is set to react to, for example, the F7 button, then you can easily use Steam to map your DS4 touchpad to that.
So how many of you had your 16th steam birthday a few days ago?
My first steam after HL2 was the original Prey!;D
I've had my Steam account since February 2011. Before 2008 I never had PCs capable enough to play current games, and then I guess I didnt buy Steam-only games until Magicka, which was my first Steam game (bought the retail copy, found out it requires Steam). After that came Deus Ex (first purchase on the Steam store), then Duke Nukem Forever (retail), Terraria (Steam store) and then soon after the 2011 Summer Sale and quickly my Steam library became bigger than my physical collection (which was not very expansive at that point, anyway).Steam was just "stupid online DRM" for us, so we didn't see a reason to have independent accounts. It was a different time, buying games exclusively digital was unthinkable and many publishers were testing new and pretty annoying DRM methods. PC was being put down as a worthless platform that consisted to at least 99% of pirates and all kind of extremely strict, anti-copy protections were put into games. Often enough those measures prevented people from enjoying their legit copies.
It was a heated atmosphere and Valve mandating an "online authentication" felt like another draconian measure.
More than 60% users play with a controller, given the option.
PlayStation controllers keep growing in popularity, now at 21% share.
too bad the sticks are in the wrong place
I can go with either and I liked both the DualShock 4 and the Xbox One controller (and the Steam controller). Not sure I'll get the new ones anytime soon, since I hardly use controllers when I can avoid it. But it is very good of Valve to implement DualSense functionality so quickly.Honestly, I never liked asymmetric sticks, honestly.
I don't mind the xbox controller, great ergonomics, the feel of it in your hand is amazing, but given the option, I always want the sticks to be at the same height. The real killer feature of the recent Playstation controllers, though, is the easily remappable touchpad. Having two buttons you can set how you want can be amazing in certain types of games.
As with all rumors, I just wait until a Steam page with a purchase button exists before I get excited ....and usually I'm not really excited so much even then Just for a handful of games I still really get excited: last example was HZD. In this case I wasnt a fan of RDR 1 even though I do own that for PS3 (or did? I might have given it away at some point, cant remember).going to need more than this twitter account.
I'll have it next weekSo how many of you had your 16th steam birthday a few days ago?
My first one after HL2 was the HL platinum pack. Got it by activating Blue Shift / Opposing Force, can't remember which one was it. Feels like yesterdayNov 17th for me, my Half Life 2 copy didn't come in the mail until a day after it came out.
Still on dial up then, I remember the painful process of having to activate HL2 on steam, took longer than installing the game. After I beat Half Life 2 I didn't touch my Steam account again until I got a copy of The Orange Box on sale for $25 on the black friday after it came out (and thankfully I had DSL by that point).
Over the years I was getting more and more used to having to log into steam to play a game. While I was still mainly buying physical copies around 2007, it became clear to me that Steam is there to stay and that buying digital isn't necessary super bad and so I decided to "branch" of and create my own, personal account.But yeah, I remember Steam being that "stupid Online DRM" as well. When it was announced DNF would use Steam, I was not happy about it. But when I started using it, it was fine pretty much immediately. It felt no different than logging into World of Warcraft. I might have mentioned it, but around the same time, I found out about the EA Download Manager, Origins previous name, and that I could play Dragon Age Origins without having the disc in the drive. I much preferred that, so I used Origin for pretty much just as long (since May 2011).
However, as we know, despite being quite old now as well, Origin never came even close to being as good as Steam is.
Every single time a Steam sale comes around I'm brokeTrying downloading MS FlightSim from game pass again out of the blue and it seems like it might finally download this time, but not sure, hopefully.
Hoping to grab Spiritfarer, Wasteland 3 and Battletoads at least. Autumn and christmas sale prices should be the same if I recall.
You could borrow/buy a PCI-slot USB card and test the mobo USB connector. Then you know if it's the case's USB connector or something else like the mobo itself or PSU.I think my front USB slots might be intermitently working.
I have no idea what to do to confirm or fix that (or is it the PSU ?)
Everywhere I look turns to shit
