  • Is there any way I can change the targeting reticule? FAE

    The targeting reticule in Antichamber is very minimalist (likely the intention), merely a small white dot with a thin black circle. While I'd normally appreciate the unintrusive UI, I sometimes suffer from motion sickness when playing games from a first person POV, and the combination of the low FOV and the fact that the targeting reticule so easily blends in with the background makes it so I can play this game only in very short sittings before I start to feel ill.

    While the low FOV contributes to this, I'm loath to change the FOV because of the number of puzzles I've come across so far that change depending on the direction you're looking or actually require you to be looking in a different direction. Seeing as I'd like to try to play the game "as intended" as possible, I'd prefer only to do this as a last resort. I figure if I can at least give my eyes something more obvious to focus on, it will help prevent me from becoming so quickly nauseated.

    Is there any way I can easily replace the file for the targeting reticule with something custom made that's a bit larger/obvious? I know the game's made in the Unreal Engine, so I figure there should be a way to do this. I have no experience modding the Unreal Engine 3 at all though, so thorough steps would be appreciated. I'm running this on a Windows 7 PC.

  • There is a way, but it's very tedious. Since Antichamber runs on the Unreal Engine, the files are packed in Unreal Engine-specific archives.

    This forum post has the matter neatly explained for Unreal Tournament 3. The same procedure can, in theory, be performed on Antichamber, given it's also running on UE3.

  • everything perfectly: including looking behind own tail, and the whole rest of the sphere of view. However, using the hat-switch on the joystick, my FOV is fairly limited: I can see 90° left or right, or 90° up, but I cannot see behind (180°), and I cannot see in three-quarter sectors (left- and right-up forward and back, something like 45° both horizontal and vertical), nor can I see below in any direction except of forward a bit so I can see all of the instrument panel. The game supports G940 natively, and most of the functions work out of the box, however buggy some of them may

  • I have a group of buddies who run a Unreal Tournament 2004 server, but it's run on an ADSL connection with terrible upload speeds. It's enough to support about 16 in game players, but maps only download at about 10 Kbps. Is there any way to configure the server to serve the content from a secondary server, such as a free web host? I know that the source engine has always supported this, and it would be nice if Unreal did too. My googling yielded no results though.

  • Some of the weapons in Max Payne 3 have a laser scope attached to them. While this is pretty cool, I actually find it more difficult to aim with these guns as the laser scope disables my targeting reticule, making it more difficult to figure out what I'm going to hit when I shoot (the beam points where Max is pointing the gun, which most time isn't where my shots end up when firing). Are there any advantages to the laser sight that I am overlooking? Currently I just turn it off if I happen to pick up a weapon that has one.

This is primarily because I have horrible saving habits (or, rather, a lack thereof) and so I do not have an easy way to jump back to the start of the scene any more.

I did keep my eyes open for anything that might look "interesting", but didn't see any. Is there ever any variation in this scene, or any

  • to very hard to aim, there is no obvious way afaict to distinguish between friendly and enemy soldiers from the targetting screen. Vehicles are not relevant here because the cursor does change to red when... myself)! Is there some way to easily spot enemy targets when using the airstrikes or do I just have to rely on luck and recognising the rough position of the enemy when I spawn? ...) doesn't require you to be insanely good (and/or lucky) since you can save up the points during a game for something like an airstrike. This benefits players like me who can rack up 2/3 kills in a row

  • to be saying in their voice clips? The voice samples in these games are very low quality and heavily digitized. They are also authentic to their original versions from 1996, and have not been modified in any way for the remake. Some of the quotes are easy to understand, while others not so much. Most of the ones involved in spellcasting are simply the name of the spell being cast, so those do... fix you!" (Same as previous game) Turning Undead, Casting on an Ally: "Immortal's Favor!"

  • i found out that the encryption on my router is not supported on PSPs in general (the security is WPA however the encryption itself is not supported), while looking on the next, mostly every answer i see about people trying to get there PSP's to access a router is to either change the encryption (which i can't do), change the security to WEP which is easier hacked or turn off the security I know with the PS3 you can download PSP Games and copy them to the PSP apart from 1 game i'm getting, all my PSP Games are in UMD Format, so i'm wondering if there is a way to use the PS3 to download DLC
