    What are peoples recommendations for alternate head straps for the quest 2? 

    I’m still using the standard strap, and while it does the job I wouldn’t class it as comfortable. It’s fine for a few songs in beat  sabre or a few rounds in Thrill of the Fight. But after 30 mins or so it cuts into my head a bit. Can’t see me wading through the entirety of resident evil 4 with it. 

    Halo style straps look like they would be the most comfortable. But I’m worried they may not be as sturdy as the goggles style when I’m ducking and weaving to avoid punches. 

    I’d appreciate impressions of alternate straps. Both positive and negative are equally useful. 

    This add on to the existing strap is cheaper than the elite style alternatives and works really well.



  2. Just managed to grab one from Very, with R&C, extra controller and 12 months PSN, so not loaded with tat. They were definitely showing as out of stock earlier this morning, so they may be releasing stock through the day.

    I'm looking at doing the vWii today. The 2 main methods seem to be needing a specific firmware, which I don't appear to be on since I used the CBHC exploit, or a number of specific retail game disks which I don't have. 


    I remember using a letterbomb method on my original Wii way back when. Does this still work? 


    How did other people hack the vWii component of their WiiU? 


    Edit: I know I have smash bros on the wii but I can't find it.


    This will do the trick. Part 2 I think. Let us know how you get on.

    I've got a 128Gb Sandisk U1. It went way beyond two minutes but that wasn't even getting to anything showing in the homebrew launcher. Should retroarch show up as an option on the homebrew launcher screen?


    Yes, the retroarch emulation frontend should appear in the homebrew launcher. It will appear there instantly after you open the homebrew launcher, it only takes a while to load when you're launching retroarch itself.

    Retroarch takes far longer to start than 30 seconds for me. More like 2 minutes. Lord knows what it’s doing. I’ve got a U1 class sd card for reference. 




    I've just timed it out of curiosity (and boredom while working from home) and it takes 47 seconds to get to the retroarch menu, so my guess wasn't far off. 256g Sandisk Ultra, U1. I start it from the launcher on the Wii U homescreen, not through the homebrew launcher. I don't know if that would affect the speed.

    I tried to hack my WiiU today, got the CBHC on and then the Homebrew launcher. I made up a 128Gb SD card with that retroarch build on it but I have no idea how to get it to run. I launched the Homebrew app while the SD card is in the WiiU and then nothing happened. The WiiU sat on the homebrew launcher page with background animation going but no menu options or icons. 


    Anybody got any idea what's gone wrong?


    I installed Retroarch today and it works for me. It's worth just going through the Retroarch readme file to double check everything is in the correct folders. Is the retroarch folder in the wiiu/apps folder on your sd card? If it is you should see the retroarch frontend in the homebrew launcher.

    Sooooo.. I was considering getting the Indomitus boxset, since I learned recently that they were committing to making them to order. Cue a cursory glance at the page here and clicking on the Order Now button and I'm taken to a Error 404. :( Does this mean they have already stopped making them to order? :wacko:


    Zatu have 5+ in stock at the moment so you might want to be quick if you want one.

  8. I'd recommend Mayday premium too, but caveat that by saying that the odd pack can be a mil or so larger (in height), so it depends if that's an OCD issue for you. There's no issue with the quality of the sleeves though, it's really good for the price. Board Game Extras is a great site too, I've never had any problems and the guy than runs it has always been really helpful and friendly whenever I've had a query.

    Anybody know where I could buy a physical copy of prog 2000? I buy back issues in bulk every two months so I've always got a go-to stack to read if ever I need to kill a bit of time, but Prog 2000 apparently sold out the week of release and isn't available in the 2000ad shop. Fuck's sake! 


    I picked up a copy last week in Forbidden Planet, so it may be worth checking your local store, if you have one.

  10. I got the 'dodgy key' email too, but mine was bought through cdkeys.com. They refunded straight away fortunately, but it's still a pain in the arse to have to re-buy at a higher price than I paid (which wasn't super cheap anyway).

  11. Also HONEY BADGERS, eagles and snakes can FUCK OFF


    I've only noticed two slight bugs so far, an enemy leaping 30 feet in the air after being shot with an arrow and an NPC going through a skinning animation with the dead animal three feet behind him. That's from twelve plus hours on PS4.

    It's a lot of fun though, some of the vistas are beautiful.

  12. Ace. Thanks for that. Add me to your friends. Maybe we can hook up, assuming Amazon get the game to me. :)

    Will do. It's a lot of fun, the sense of scale is epic and some of the firefights are really intense.

    I always used to think Rush was the way to go for beginners. It's less "360" than Conquest as the goal is always in a single direction and you learn each map in stages. Plus, Conquest relies on far more map and game knowledge in order to be an effective unit. Maybe something has changed in BF4? (I've not played yet).

    I'll give that a go too, sounds like that would be a quicker way to learn the maps. Thanks for the advice!

  13. Am about to jump in myself as a Virgin BF player this week (PS4). Did you learn controls via campaign forts or did you follow a guide or anything?

    And have you been playing with people mostly from here? Or Randoms?

    I didn't follow a guide, although I have watched a few YouTube videos of people playing to get a bit of an idea of what I'm supposed to be doing. I quick matched with randoms on Conquest and started following teammates around, trying to learn the maps. Conquest seems the best thing to start with, as it's a basic attack/defend mechanic, and it's not difficult to figure out what you should be doing.

    I followed the advice of a few people on here and played the Assault class. Once I'd got the defibrillators (which unlock really quickly), I revived downed teammates and dropped medpacks as much as I could. So although I'm dying a lot more than I get kills, I'm gaining xp and feel like I'm contributing to my team. If I was just running around getting slaughtered it would get too frustrating.

  14. First time player on PS4. I was a bit worried that it would be a nightmare for a noob, but I've taken the advice offered earlier in the thread, and I'm spotting, dropping med packs and reviving like a mofo.

    It's awesome fun. I'm utterly shit, but having a ball.
