  1. Thanks! Yes I am well. I've been very busy. Just not youtubing.
  2. The PS4 has flakey network code, and did a video on back in BO3 days. Although I talk through steps I did when i encountered this issue, check out the videos pinned comment for additional tips. The electrical power off sequence generally fixes it. The DB check do afterwards if still not playing ball.
  3. R1 but for information purposes at this time. Waiting for servers to settle etc. before doing a settings video.
  4. Fun? What MW and Fun? Whats going on? Enjoy!
  5. For those of you who may have missed this video. This is not a fluff/hype kind of video. Its all about my journey with it pre-launch, how I felt about it, and concerns post launch. Prior to publishing this I had not pre-ordered it, just like I stated in my BO4 Worst COD Ever video. However, the over whelming response via likes is that people want to see it on my channel, as I guess they know they are going to get the truth, aka does it suck...

    Yep. Been pretty quiet youtube wise for 2019, well that's about to change.
  7. BO4s netcode as we all know is not great. There are things you can do and there are things that are out of your control. No control over Netcode SBMM + lobby balancing, i.e. all noobs on your team vs all the sweats on the other The consistently inconsistent online experience, down to netcode + lag comp algorithms Have control over Home network setup (bufferbloat control etc.) ISP (may be some regions, only have 1 choice) UK there are options. Hops will impact latency BT for example 8 hops to a known server AA 5 hops to known server Line quality - if poor this will greatly impact your online gaming experience (I know currently suffering from this) BAD ISP = no fault found, not repairing, give me your money GOOD ISP = fault detected, will repair Once got good line quality (no more random packet loss, 1250ms ping spikes etc) gaming experience in general will be better So you have all the best things in the world at your end, but fundamentally if the game servers are oversubscribed (causing what appears to be packet loss but is not), and the server and client netcode is poor, the gaming experience overall will be poor and there is no magic bullet that you can apply.

    The new Elite Controller Series 2, my current one is in desperate need of replacement. Scarlett... looking forward to that too. Glad to see the dumbed down Anaconda did not get mentioned, and hopefully MS changed their strategy. Use X Cloud instead if you want a cheap device to game on... but hey hope your internet is up to the challenge!

    F.A.O streamers...

    I use the HD60 not the S, as it has hardware encoding built in, taking less strain on your machine. Anyway, OBS is what I use. Others have used StreamLabs version of OBS, SLOBS. Relatively easy to setup. Tutorials out there on the web. Sim
  10. FYI - I cracked it. I can now logon to modem whilst connected to internet. Had to telnet on to modem direct, and setup a route. Now I can see my line stats galore 24/7.
  11. It smells similar to MW2 days with lots of key developers moving over to Respawn Entertainment. Condrey got a taste of Activision HQ, left a few months later, setup his own developer studio and core developers are jumping ship. Activision's micro management (and greed?) is slowly but surely killing the franchise. I wonder what games 2K Studio will bring to the market? Remember the whole outspokeness from Condrey about Treyarchs $20 skin (or was if $40?). Anyway interesting times ahead, and hopefully for the benefit of all gamers.
  12. I had some serious attempts at logging on to the vigor 130 via router. It works when pppoe connection not established. However, as soon as you are connected to the internet, the vigor no longer recognises/responses to tcp/ip traffic and thus you cannot see stats whilst pppoe connection is active.
  13. I am always going to game on local hardware for FPS games. I can see them pushing cloud gaming for those who want to buy cheap consoles (dumb devices) knowing that all the hardware upgrading is happening in the cloud, so you don't need to keep upgrading hardware. However, you are going to need a serious internet package, a decent ISP, and money to pay for the service. Long term costs are ouch for cloud based, until backbone and ISPs step-up, especially the larger common household ISPs.
  14. I love my One X. Hook it up with an external SSD, and it flies. PS4 is generally off gathering dust. Online services just not up to par. And it looks like Sony has recognised that and will be doing something for next gen only, by working with Microsoft. https://news.microsoft.com/2019/05/16/sony-and-microsoft-to-explore-strategic-partnership/
