      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

Well, just played QuakeLive. Now that's a hard game.

In my first game, I just died over and over on a level in space (you could fall off) and I came a solid 12th. Next level, managed 12 frags (35 deaths lol) and came 7th. How the fuck are people so good at this game? So fast and precise and chaotic.

Is there any free to play (non demanding) FPS games that are available in browser? (I'm about 10% into getting Team Fortress 2 but it's just taking forever).

They have 13 years or so of practice at the game.

Tribes Ascend is good and F2P, but I'm not sure how good your PC is.

Its also quite a bit slower than quake 3.

Just tried Can You Run It and sadly I can't run Tribes. I'll just stick with my 360 for now.

Tribes Ascend is a fantastic game, but I would say that the skill gap can easily be like 80-90% of what Quake III is. Tribes has the benefit if playing as a Technician where you can just sit on defense and protect your turrets, or something like the Juggernaut where you can fire off mortars and probably get a couple lucky kills. But if you go head-to-head against someone in a dual, that skill gap is just as brutal as Quake III in most cases.

I used to be OK at Unreal Tournament when I was about 10. Not top of the list, but I used to do alright. This was just something else lol.

I tried Alien Arena but didn't like it. The engine is based on Quake source code but with some modern graphical features. I barely played it and didn't try it online but it's free.

Playing it again today, TDM and FFA are kind of addictive even if there's always one guy that 40 kills and 10 deaths and me with 2 kills and 12 deaths after...2 minutes.

Still though it's fun.
