    iPhone's camera is like shit
    You need to tap the image on the camera first to adjust the sharpness. Then the pictures get pretty decent. Took me a while to figure that out too

    I still can't get to the military outpost, those fucking turrets ain't leaving me alone.
    Oh wait, now I have a legitimate long-range weapon: the crossbow.

    It's seriously the shit for medium-long range encounters, a headshot will kill any human enemy including exos and it's completely silent. You start feeling like a ninja with that.

    Point the camera at the image. Tap the screen, the camera will focus.

    The tunnels aren't so bad, unless you're deathly afraid of Snorsks and hamsters.

    X8 is... worse.

    CoP's Jupiter Plant is when you combine all of Amnesia with worm food.

    The underpass has it's moments but it's mood is broken a ton of times because voice actors.

    X8 is a bit more intense than Jupiter but after a few moments you'll realize that going MAN MODE on everything makes it more fun and easier.

    Heh, that makes sense. They're way too accurate with grenades. If mods add it back in I tend to disable it, it's just too much hassle. I get bad flashbacks to playing World at War on Veteran. Grenades, grenades everywhere.
    Christ, I still get flashbacks from CS:S DM servers.

    Nope.
    Find basic and fine tools and get the upgrade for your VSK that changes the calibre to 5.45
    Your life gets easier by a ton, trust me.

    Remember those army cars with tons of 5.45 ammo in the Zaton bridge? They're still there.

    Recon is pretty good given all the bonuses related to sunrise suit, and to the INFINITE SPRIIIIINT.

    Also I forgot where the second basic tools kit is.

    Pffft, upgrading the carrying weight of sunrise suit and then going with ~20kg stuff in your backpack, you can sprint for ages. Add in the easily gained night star and vo~la, infinite sprint.

    Also SKS is awesome

    You mean the Tier 2 tool kits ? Substation workshops with Hatchet's mercs and the small fenced area of the Jupiter Plant west of the Concrete Bath anomaly.

    X8 is... worse.
    Seriously, I was kinda creeped out in X8 until    the canned baby crying killed my mood with it's sheer "Boo! Haunted house!"-flavour    and I have seen some veterans stalker streamers lose their shit in X8. The streamer had previously basically went through X18 like it was nothing, yet was very jumpy and nervous at X8. I think it can be attributed to the confusing layout of the lab and the fact that you cannot see the    Poltergeist    that is throwing stuff at you unless you know where it's hiding.

    So, Misery. I've heard shit about the FoV, what value should I pick for it? 4:3 aspect ratio, if that changes anything.

    I agree, the SKS is p. great in close-mid range combat and even in long with a scope (if it can have one i mean)
    But once you fully upgrade a VSK-94, there is just no comparison. It's so overpowered at that point it's not even funny.

    So, Misery. I've heard shit about the FoV, what value should I pick for it? 4:3 resolution, if that changes anything.
    I play at 16:9 and took 83. Shit was pretty amazing.

    Imagine exploring the underpass by yourself in a choking environmental suit, you can't hear shit due to muted sound and heavy breathing, your visor fogs up every now and then, and your thin flashlight beam doesn't pierce the green gasses very well at all.
    Just add some more side passages that go the same way as the main one but which spawn mutants, and it's perfect.

    I think that's not a very large fault because the supplies there are only a one-time thing. Sure, it's kind of low effort but that's among the least glaring problems that come with the mod.

    because 200 rounds of 5.45 has the potential to completely unbalance the ingame economy

    personally, I liked the way in Redux the mercs holed up in the waste processing plant with a single piece of bread between the twelve or so of them

    how easy is it to code food to go off after a certain amount of time? that'd make feeding yourself more of a challenge without stripping the Zone entirely of food

    the green gasses very well at all.
    carbon monoxide is not green

    fuck you GSC

    nor is it a biohazard

    seriously, after they got the chemical symbol right in CS I'm surprised they managed to screw it up this time

    I think now you owe us a stream to prove that. 200 rounds, any combination and you can "cheat" at the start to gain them but you must not pick up any nor can you buy more.

    All right, so I'm thinking of recording my Redux run with Fraps. Sadly, Redux doesn't run as well as Misery to me so I'll just have to deal with the horrid lag spikes I will inevitably encounter.
    Should I record the entire run or do those image story-like short clips where I summarize what's been going on and only record major events?

    I don't think I have enough space for a complete run on my hard drive, I mean ;c

       Thorny you better fucking make me an expert stalker
