    Complete Is voip up yet?

    In case you still need some help: Click on 'Portal' in the top menu of the screen. Hover over 'Tools'. Select 'Teamspeak', click 'new registration and follow the instructions. There is also an Discord option which simply follows the same logic. Click it, carefully read through the instructions and your set. In both options there is a Helpdesk (sub-)channel, so don't be afraid to hop on in and ask away. Note: Your Teamspeak username must match your forum profile name with all the upper-, lowercases and numbers for the bot to give you the right permissions right away.
  2. Thought i'd share this with y'all! Survey link the button leads to: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/L5PH2M5
  3. For the people interested: https://www.gog.com/game/evil_genius 75% off till the end of the GOG summer sale (June 17th i believe). For me it was €2,29 when i bought it a few days back out of nostalgia. Running it right now with the reworked 1.1 patch by the community back then, since the official one had a few bugs that was never fixed.

    Build help Building New PC

    Regardless of what you choose, i would wait for the new AMD ryzen 3000 series if you plan to purchase after July. Like mentioned those cpus are most likely to hit the markets in Q3 with proper stock. If you plan to purchase past August, i'd wait and see whether or not prices are going down for you at that point, for when it gets launched. Price-performance arguments are after all only relevant for you in Canadian prices and VAT(possible?) for you. What might be better bang for buck for one country, can be the opposite for the other depending on price, vat and local discounts or sales etc... I personally run a 2700x, i love it and i don't regret buying it. For my purposes it was the ideal cpu at the time of purchase, but it was also more inline with local availability and prices as Intel has become almost unaffordable for here and, since i wanted/need Hyperthreading/SMT to make full use out of my software. Which is also only available on the i9 processors from current gen onwards.. I would before all else, look into: Budget - Roughly how much you're willing to spend. Budget can always be widened afterwards, if need be and want. Purpose - What are you using the PC for aside from Star Citizen? Think of software specialized or otherwise, or a mmo game that you play almost daily. Must haves - Are there any particulars you wish to have included. Think of webcam, monitor uhm.. a specific amount of ram (like 32GB) anything really. Anyone can yell, this is too much, or this brand wins over that brand... its all fanboyism and zealotry most of the time. It ultimately comes down to those three points and the local prices available to you. After all paying more for power or features you are never going to use is in the end just wasted money. That money could be saved up for when you do your next GPU upgrade or a vacation with the family, whatever.. not my business anyway. If you have a more clear picture of those three, then i am certain we can actually give advice based on what is best for you, rather than just blurting out "Take this over that...".
  5. At the bottom of this webpage, https://robertsspaceindustries.com/promotions/35-Free-Fly, there are the steps written for it. I hope this helps.
  6. I would say try it out first as Danakar suggested. Afterwards if you like it, invest into a basic pack like the Mustang or an Aurora and see from there whether you find further investments worth your time and money. The game is still in development and prone to bugs, but its still fun nonetheless. This game is always more fun, when you play it with other people and more people. You can always just hop on our Teamspeak or Discord to find other players (for starters) and just ask around.

    Build help New Build

    I have an ASrock B450 mobo (amd socket AM4). They have a pretty straightforward BIOS in my eyes, but dont expect it to be at the level ASUS in regards to user-friendliness. If you are used to ASUS Bios, my advice would be to forget everything you know. Once you figure out which setting is where, it will be a walk in park. Like with ASUS (and other brands) you can update the bios through USB in the bios itself and the rest is pretty much similar if you disregard the slight difference in naming sense and it being less user-friendly. I'd rather deal with a less user-friendly bios mobo, than having shitty mobo. I have a great experience with ASrock mobo's so far for the past 4+ years. Edit: My Overclocking days are long behind me, so i cant really help you there.

    Ongoing Discussion Arctic Cooling sells headphones?

    I've always liked their products, but i don't see this surviving long in the headphone(s) market as saturated and overcrowded as it already is. Wish them all the best of course, but i'd rather they focus their budget/resources on research and production for their existing main market instead.
  10. AAAAAHHHH!!!! There is 'WHITE' stuff on my screen!! 🙈

  11. @Sleezy It can be that the hyperlink itself was disguised. Meaning even if the email and supposed hyperlink match, the phishing is already done/embedded in what you might call the true link. There are a few easy ways to track that. One of them is to hover over the link (don't click the link!!) and you will see the TRUE link. Another one method is to view the real page/mail source. In example in MS Outlook web interface right-click the email and click view page source/info. Scroll around and maybe use the search function to find the email or hyperlinks and whatnot. I used to receive like a 100 Blizzard WoW related phishing attempts a few years back, even though i never activated WoW on my Blizzard account. Tracked down the true link and emails, reported it and never received them again. The fact that you were auto-logged in after just clicking the link is already suspicious. Anno nu, or in English, nowadays it's already a sign that somethings wrong. Any company (CIG incl.) that do make use of this has either very low standards or never really cared. It's easy to setup a proper login page with permissions... I highly recommend to visit this support page https://support.robertsspaceindustries.com/hc/en-us/articles/115013171387-My-account-was-hacked- , give it a good read so you know what kind of questions you might expect and what kind of info you can give them straightaway. Afterwards press "Submit a request button" at the top of the page if you cannot sign-in to your RSI account and contact support. Oh and ... : Password - Change your password immediately! 2FA - activate 2FA on your account if you haven't already. Even if people manage to get your account, they would still need the codes. Of course if someone really wants you they will find a way, but 90% of this kind of attempts is just "Oh 2FA? lets move on to the next..." and not worth the extra effort. If you already did? Then reset your 2FA recovery codes, better safe than sorry as your account might've already been compromised.
  12. I would first make sure if the email you received is legitimate. Make sure the corresponding email is from Cloud Imperium Games ie. <no-reply@cloudimperiumgames.com>. Login on RSI and see if your account is actually locked. In the event that it isn't report it to CIG.
  13. I don't use any apps like Tapatalk when i browse forums on my phone, since it looks good the way it is. The forum software from Invision is in my opinion very responsive, since --don't quote me on this-- version 4.2.x if i remember it right. Though if you must, there are some alternatives out there, but the catch is none of them are quite there yet to be called a 'proper' competitor or an replacement.
  14. I don't use Tapatalk myself, but like @Codryn, mentioned it's only worth the headache, time and effort if you know for a fact that there is a large a number of people using it... ie. 100 out of 14,471 users --taking activity out of the equation for arguments' sake-- would not be worth it. In addition i always say "if it's free, than you're the product!", with exceptions of course among some FOSS/FLOSS programs. I don't know if it's relevant, but a program like tapatalk is bound to send and receive information through its server and/or DNS for analysis which was probably the reason took over those "freemium" forums.
  15. I cant airbrush for shit, so ... it looks great to me! I thought oni masks had the mouth covered with black and teeth though.
  16. No worries, bud. Though i do share a few of the traits listed myself.
  17. That was quite interesting and to the point. I like it and finally someone says what i was thinking(, since i am too lazy to say it myself). lol
