Play around with your sensitivities. I've found that if I can't hit a thing, I need only play around with those and it dials in pretty well.

Re: Mouse/KB time for a change?

I agree: "Better" is subjective. For fine aiming, it can be more efficient. I've always found that the trade off isn't worth it. I've stuck with a 3D Pro + N52.

Re: The DescentBB upgrade

I agree Foil. There are some forums where folk's signatures, or the images in their signatures dwarf whatever they're posting. I suppose shutting off them for individuals would don't like them would be an option. Perhaps setting a character limit and disallow [img] tags would be warranted?

(Although the theme is likely a sample that came with the new forum version, the WOW theme can go die in a fire.)

I'm using DescentBB_D3 right now, and the sizes of message text, usernames, post information (date posted, etc.) could all use a boosting.

Merlin, at that rate, the original Descent4 project could have taken up ten years to gain the proper rights. I recall a post by Valin Halcyon stating it would take ten years. It was more than likely a random time period thrown out for example purposes, but by now we could have gotten it. :)

I really didn't think that this subforum was for dissecting a handshake needlessly, instead of discussing real issues. For example, we could be discussing the caucus system prior to elections, or even the founding principals of Hinduism.

It's a long shot. Past projects have gone flat, and there are too many red flags, and until I see a decent demo (no pun intended), and an actual release date, I'm not holding my breath.
