Multiplayer mod for Just Cause 3 – has been cancelled

11 July 2016 - 01:48 AM


In case you were not aware of, there were two multiplayer mods for Just Cause 3 under development; JC3-MP and nanos JC3:MP. Unfortunately, though, it appears that the JC3-MP mod has been officially cancelled.
The good news is that its main developer was asked to work at Avalanche Studios; an offer he could not obviously refuse. And that’s exactly why we are trying to bring all modders and artists into the spotlight. Because some of them deserve to be hired by the developers.
As Trix wrote in his farewell message:
“Good and bad news often come in pairs, and this case is no exception; several months ago, I was approached with an offer I couldn’t refuse: to join Avalanche Studios Sweden as a developer so that I could work on projects present and future. As part of Avalanche, I’ll be able to bring many of the things you know and love from JC2-MP into future Avalanche experiences, while reaching heights that a mere mod couldn’t facilitate. Unfortunately, due to time constraints, neither I or the rest of the team can actively pursue development on JC3-MP; our lives are just too busy to allow for it right now.”
This basically means that the nanos JC3:MP mod will be the only multiplayer mod for Just Cause 3.
Nanos JC3:MP is a multiplayer modification for Just Cause 3 allowing playing on customisable dedicated servers, and here is the latest video from it (showing a brand new WIP User Interface).

Doom 3 fans, here is something special for you today. Modder ‘VGames’ has released a new version of his Perfected mod for Doom 3. Perfected Doom 3 attempts to completely overhaul the entire game with new monsters, rebalanced weapons, rebalanced monster stats, better graphics, new gameplay features.
This new version of Perfected Doom 3 comes with various gameplay improvements, balance tweaks for a number of weapons, dynamic lighting effects to various enemies, HD skins for all characters, monsters, weapons, and items, High Poly models for all characters, monsters, items, and some of the weapon view models, as well as a new gibbing system that causes some of the smaller enemies to get blown to bits by the rocket launcher and handgrenade or have their flesh vaporized by the Plasmagun, BFG, and Soulcube.

First NVIDIA GTX 1070 benchmarks leaked online

30 May 2016 - 02:51 AM

The NDA for the NVIDIA GTX 1070 lifts tomorrow, however it appears that the French website ‘Clubic‘ published its benchmarks earlier than anticipated. While Clubic was quick to react and disabled its article, NeoGAF’s member ‘DieH@rd‘ was able to save the graphs.
As we can see, the NVIDIA GTX 1070 is reported to be slightly faster than the GTX Titan X and the GTX 980Ti. Moreover, it appears that this GPU is faster than the Radeon Fury X in a lot of games (only Ashes of the Singularity appears to perform better on AMD’s flagship).
What’s also interesting here is that the GTX 1070 will be priced at $379 and is planned for a June 10th release (that’s the price of the regular card. Do note that as with the GTX 1080, only its Founder’s Edition will be initially available for purchase, meaning that it will cost $449).

Battlefield 1 Multiplayer Map Names Leaked

30 May 2016 - 02:49 AM

Players are excited for Battlefield 1, which makes sense- it looks like one of the most exciting game in the series for years, and the World War 1 setting is truly going to be new and unique. But you know, with that kind of excitement comes the territory of fake ‘leaks,’ from fans probably hoping for their fifteen minutes of fame.
This new leak seems to be a lot like that- according to Reddit poster KoolTabbouli, a contact of his at EA, but not DICE, has leaked the names of the multiplayer maps for the vanilla version of Battlefield1– you may find these, along with his comments, below:
Asiago Offensive (Italian Alps Map)
Gaza Sands (Desert Map)
Siege of Damascus (I’d assume desert-urban…?)
Stalemate (Sounds like a Flanders fields kinda deal)
ANZAC Cove (Sounds like Gallipoli, I’d assume that ‘D-day map’ LevelCap mentioned and the one with the Battleship ruining the coastline)
Garden Twilight (No idea)
Argonne Shade (Probably the forrest map we saw in the trailer)
Operation Castlewick (No idea either, maybe references something in campaign?)
Scorched Earth (Sounds Western or Eastern Front…?)
Of course, why an EA person would know the names of maps for a DICE game that is currently months away from release, I don’t know. KoolTabbouli also covers his bases by claiming that his own source admits that the names of the maps in the final game may change, but that as of right now, they are accurate.
Maybe they just are- but I would take it all with heaps of salt.

MSI uses mini-ITX motherboard to set DDR4 overclocking record

27 May 2016 - 01:13 AM



MSI is proud as a peacock over a new overclocking record it set using its own Z170I Gaming Pro AC motherboard. The company sent us details along with links to screenshots showing it was able to take a single stick of DDR4-2133 memory to just over 5,000MHz.
Part of what makes the record frequency impressive is that MSI used a mini-ITX motherboard. The achievement underscores that you can wring big performance out of small form factor mobos, even of the diminutive mini-ITX variety, which are smaller than micro-ATX boards.
That said, there are some factors that temper our enthusiasm here. For one, the record frequency was hit using just one memory module in single channel mode. Secondly, the real world benefits of running DDR4 at 5,000MHz versus 2,133MHz aren't all that spectacular—it's mostly for bragging rights and for the sport of overclocking. And finally, as is often the case with record breaking overclocks, extreme cooling was required here in the form of liquid nitrogen.
Disclaimers aside, this is a job well done by MSI's in-house overclocker "Toppc." G.Skill also deserves a shout out here, as MSI used a G.Skill DDR4-2133 Trident Z module to set the record. Timings were loosened to 31-31-31-63, according to the validated CPU-Z submission.
It's not surprising that G.Skill was in the mix. It's one of the more active participants in the enthusiast and overclocking memory scene, both in terms of setting records and regularly releasing faster memory kits.
"Surpassing the 5GHz frequency speed barrier had been the ultimate aspiration of the memory overclocking community since the last year’s launch of the Intel Skylake platform. This historic milestone is finally succeeded today by the renowned Taiwanese overclocking legend, Toppc, under liquid nitrogen cooling," G.Skill said.
