  2. Elite Dangerous

    Welp, servers didn't come back online until 4:30 this morning, patch waas about 3.4 GB, downloaded it and had a bit of a look before I ended up going to bed, then had another go when I got up today. And... they done broke engineering (Both remote and on-site). If I try to do any engineering, the UI locks up and then requires a re-log or opening the engineers menu from the right hand panel takes me back to the station menu. Some players have been able to do experimental effects without problems, but I haven't gone to an engineer base yet to attempt it myself. There's also a visual bug that makes it look like any stored modules you have engineered are stock again, though I managed to transfer the module to a ship, and the engineered stats were there as normal. And to see how much ARX I got while playing, I took 4 Pirate Assassination missions in a neighbouring system. I ended up doing a few jumps, as 2 of them required finding a contact to get the traget's new location, which was another 2 systems I needed to jump to. After destroying 6 ships, jumping around and that. I ended up with 29 ARX when I turned the missions in, then made another 11 doing some mining, totaling about 40 in about maybe 3-4 hours of play. It has reset the weekly limit for me with the Thursday maintenance earlier. And speaking of mining, it's broken now... When I jumped back on after maintenance, I started getting a server error whenever a collector limpet would bring a mined material back to the cargo scoop, and after it happened 3 times with Void Opal Cores, I went and sold the rest of the opals & LT Diamonds I had from earlier (which gave me another 16 ARX by the looks of it, as well as 2 for Exploration) and gonna take a break, and hope that FDev can get a patch out to fix some of the issues.
  3. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

    Interesting. I might be able to find some time Saturday to give it a test if others are on.

    Patch notes are out! - https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/september-update-downtime-and-patch-notes.521859/ Servers went down at 6pm for the update, and won't be back up until around 3am, so if I'm still up, I'll be taking a look at the changes. I'm curious to see the rate ARX are given. Also @TheLaw, they've fixed AI's not appearing after they interdict you (Hopefully it stops the interdiction banging drum solo with no payoff...)
  8. Last week
  9. Battlefield V

    I'm hoping to get some games in soon. Who thinks Metro will have the glitch with the roof that goes back to BF3?

    Just got back from seeing IT Chapter 2, was rather good, i can understand why people are saying it wasn't as scary as the first one, but it definitely has its moments that made me almost jump outta my seat lol. 8/10

  14. Battlefield V

    Chapter 5 isn't due til Nov/Dec. The next patch (4.6) is bringing Operation Underground (the metro remake) is due within the next week or so. They have made alot of improvements both optimization wise and QOL. I can now manage a stable 60fps, thanks to recent nvidia drivers and the last patch. If anyone is ever up for a few rounds just message me, always keen for a game.
  15. Battlefield V

    hmm its been a while, any word on when the patch is due?

    I've watched the replay of the Content Reveal Livestream from Frontier for the September Update, and here's a few things in regards to ARX (there is the stuff about the tutorial as well, so I'll leave the links to the forum post about the livestream) https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/content-reveal-livestream-september-update-recap.521523/page-2#post-7998002 https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/arx-and-frontier-points-conversion.521520/ A few key points in regards to ARX There is a cap of 400 Arx/week, which can be earned by just playing the game (No word on if any certain activity gives more than others or anything like that) There will be 6 ARX pack tiers: 5.81 AUD (5000), 10.17 AUD (8400 +420 bonus), 18.90 AUD (16800 +900 bonus), 27.63 AUD (25500 +1300 bonus), 58.19 AUD (51000 +3000 bonus) & 87.30 AUD (85000 +15000 bonus) *These amounts are based on the current conversion rate from USD at the time of posting* Buying anything from the Frontier Store website for Elite will require ARX instead of direct Credit Card/Paypal transactions Edit: FDev posted again with the average ARX costs for cosmetics - https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/arx-and-frontier-points-conversion.521520/page-15 Here's the amounts if you don't want to check the original thread post, Decals - 50 to 150 ARX Individual Fighter and SRV Paint Jobs - 460 to 3280 ARX Individual Ship Paint Jobs - 620 to 5,520 ARX Individual Bobbleheads – 2,450 to 6,450 ARX COVAS – 8,850 ARX Ship Kits (sold in Bundles) – 11,750 to 13,520 ARX

  23. Elite Dangerous

    I think someone fat fingered the price. Normally $189.95 according to other retailers.
  24. Elite Dangerous

    That regular price can't be correct can it?
  25. Elite Dangerous

    Also, the next update has been confirmed for September 18th, and is adding a fully voiced tutorial, the premium Arx currency for purchasing in-game extras/ship cosmetics, which is a re-branding of the Frontier Points that the console versions have used, and the option to buy the items from their website with real money will also be replaced with Arx (FDev has said previously that they would be giving us more info on how we earn Arx while playing the game at some point leading up to the update's release) & the ability to customise your ship's livery from the main menu, even if you're weren't docked at a station when you last logged off, which is good for explorers. https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/lavecon-2019-content-reveal.516705/#post-7883919 - Lavecon 2019 Content Reveal, which includes the details regarding the September patch https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/arx-faq.516706/ - Arx FAQ

    Yeah, I was feeling nostalgic and named it "Scarface Squadron", which was from the original Ace Combat game on the PS1 (or Air Combat as it was called here). Unlike the last squadron, I have made this one independent, so you can join any power if you participate in the Powerplay stuff. Whenever you're playing and either TheLaw or myself are online, we can send you an invite to join. I'm sitting in the Top 25% at 3,700 delivered for the CG, it has reached Tier 3 with just under a day and a half left at the time of posting. Inara has updated the rewards for the brackets on the site. https://inara.cz/galaxy-communitygoals/
