  1. I'm going to look into how to back everything up but at the moment i'm not sure how. I'm going to put Lion on a USB and hopefully i'll be able to boot up without losing all the files. Thanks for the help guys!
  2. Hey everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me out with a problem i've had with my iMac. So the iMac being used is from 2008 or 2009 and has been running OS X Snow Leopard which is 10.6.8. After purchasing a new printer we were required to update the OS because the printer was not compatible with Snow Leopard. I decided to download the newest OS X which is El Capitan. El Capitan failed to install multiple times and i've tried trouble shooting but nothing has worked. At this point, I can't move back to OS X Snow Leopard so i'm thinking of just erasing the hard drive completely and installing OS X Lion because I think the problem is with El Capitan. Is erasing the hard drive (I might try to back some of the stuff up on an external) and booting OS X Lion from a USB a bad idea? I'm honestly lost right now.
  3. The problem will be for AM teams that perform well and don't know how to protect their IP because they aren't used to being ddosed. In all honesty it probably takes a couple Google searches to find a form or method of protection but I doubt every player in these qualifiers will do that. Maybe TeamBeyond can make a dedicated, pinned post about it. That would be so frustrating.
  4. I disagree with people saying a close remake of a game like Halo CE, 2 or 3 would create loads of success for the franchise. I honestly think it has to do with the customer base the companies are dealing with. It seemed to me that back in Halo's prime it was really the only big shooter that caught consumers attention. Sure COD was there but didn't go mainstream until COD4. Do I think Halo Reach completely killed the franchise? YES 100%. But I think if they released a game similar to Halo CE, 2 or 3 in the current FPS console market it would do awful. All these young kids know is that in COD they can at least get a couple kills, use cool guns, get some cool kill streaks and watch their favorite personalities (because CoD has so many with their Youtube success) stream any day. I actually think Halo does worse because it is difficult to be good. Young kids want instant success these days and back when all of the people here were playing Halo CE or Halo 2 or even Halo 3 there weren't many instant success games that were available. Maybe I'm crazy but ask your little cousin, little brother or any young kid why he likes playing Call of Duty and not Halo. Ps - I actually really enjoy Halo 5 and think they did a great job with the game. Dedicated servers make my experience so much more satisfying and, although it needs some work, the sandbox is pretty well balanced. As the months continue I think we will find pro players and average joes discovering new ways to play the game and strafe styles incorporating thruster and crouching that we have never seen before. I like Halo 5 and I'm not afraid to say it.
  5. Hello tech friends, I am having some trouble figuring out how to stream with game-chat and my blue yeti mic. Here's the problem. I need a way to input game chat into my OBS stream but have OBS pick up my own audio from my blue yeti and not my astros. I have the A40s with a mixamp pro setup at the moment. I am going to mess around with it sooner or later but I figured if someone knew how to do it it would be much easier. Thank you for any help!!
  6. I posted this in reddit.com/buildapc but have yet to garner a single response. I am building a PC that I hope to be built by the middle of June. It is going to be used to stream Xbox One as well as for video/photo editing so I can put up content on Youtube. Below is the information I provided in the reddit thread and covers pretty much any information you would need to help me out. I'm looking for advice on what parts I could potentially decrease in price and other areas where I could improve. Thanks in advance guys! What is your intended use for this build? The more details the better. I am using this PC for streaming Xbox One (primarily Fifa) 40+ hours a week. Also, I will be editing with Photoshop and whichever video editing software I find best to make graphics and put up Youtube videos. If gaming, what kind of performance are you looking for? (Screen resolution, FPS, game settings) I will not be gaming on this PC just streaming console gaming. What is your budget (ballpark is okay)? $700 - $900 (I have a monitor/keyboard/mouse already) In what country are you purchasing your parts? United States Post a draft of your potential build here (specific parts please). Consider formatting your parts list.

I am a beginner and have never built a PC. My friend who has built his own recently will be helping me out on this build. I'm pretty set on using an Intel i7 processor based on research I've done. Also, I have a 2TB external HD so I don't need any extra space internally than what I put.
  7. I agree with LoL and some other PC games. But the fact of the matter is that those games have been played for much longer and the developer hasn't changed the core. People can watch LoL and it's basically the same game from years prior. My fear in console gaming is that we don't have that and viewers can't tune in years from now and relate to the game being played. I agree it won't disappear completely but I want it to grow more than flatline at some point.
  8. Hey guys, I always find myself thinking about things regarding Halo especially with the eSports side of the scene and today is no different. It's great to see what people think about the questions I ask myself sometimes when I'm lost in thought. Recently that was wether or not I believe eSports and more importantly Halo will succeed over the next decade or more. As a Finance major that is focused specifically in investment I have learned that investors many times look at the long term potential of a business rather than short term using a method of calculating the net present value of that business. In other words, they take the expected cash flows of the future years of operation and come up with what they believe the business is worth. For MLG and other leagues that would be calculated mostly from advertising revenue they gain due to viewership alongside apparel and other side sales they make. But, I don't believe anyone can deny that viewership is the most important aspect of MLG's business and eSports in general. My problem is this...sporting events such as the NFL's Superbowl or the Fifa World Cup are viewed worldwide by all ages because, at their core, the sport has remained nearly identical throughout its' lifespan. If I were to watch a World Cup from nearly 50 years ago it would play out almost exactly as the World Cup did this past summer in Brazil. The rules and regulations would be practically identical. For viewers, that means there is something they can relate to. Nearly every person has thrown a football or kicked a soccer ball and understands the skill it requires to play at the highest level. When a great catch is made in the end zone or a bicycle kick is performed in soccer it wows viewers because the understand the difficulty. For eSports however, many times the game being played is very much a different game then the viewer might have experienced themselves. Say for instance a Halo 2 vet took a hiatus away from the gaming scene and returned later this year to watch the Halo 5 launch tournament. The only relation they might feel to the game is that it is an FPS. They would not understand the skill it takes to "ground pound" or "thruster" but instead become slightly confused at the experience they are getting. When it comes to teamwork they might see the addition of sprint and wonder wether this "get out of jail free card" actually adds to the teamwork aspect of the game or takes away from it. Overall, the may become disinterested because of the changes made to the game they once knew and turn their computer stream off. This is what scares me. I believe MLG and other tournament organizers needs games that stay almost identical at their core in order for them to succeed long term. It can be seen as almost a double edged sword as developers try to sell copies to the younger generations as well as succeed as an eSport title. Thoughts?
  9. Haha no problem man! I read up a lot and it seemed like after 24" meaning anything above that, 1080p isn't actually 1080p because the pixels are spread out further. I was also sitting playing CoD AW and caught myself realizing if I go bigger than 24" I'm gonna have a hard time watching the entire screen while playing.
  10. The funny thing is I decided to go with the BenQ 24" RL2760HT. It was on sale for $199.99 and after realizing my current monitor is 22" I realized how much bigger a 27" would be and I think it would effect my gameplay. I game much more than I watch movies so I think it was a safe bet. Sometime down the road (probably next black friday) i'll grab a 40" TV for movies. Thank you for the help though it's greatly appreciated.
  11. Thanks for all the help man. Right now I'm either going with the one you just posted or this 27" BenQ I just found. http://www.amazon.com/BenQ-GW2760HS-27-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B00ITORMDC/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1417457937&sr=1-1&keywords=gw2760hs Is there any difference in the specs between the two that you notice that are important?
  12. @ZurueLX11 Any help would be great! Love the post.
  13. Does anyone know if the "BenQ GL2760H 27'' would be a good gaming monitor? - http://www.amazon.com/BenQ-GL2760H-27-Inch-LED-Lit-Monitor/dp/B00IZBIMLK I really want a TV/Monitor that's big enough to watch movies on but good enough for competitive gaming. The BenQ 24" Monitors that MLG uses seem great for just gaming but too small for me when it comes to movies. Also, how much of a difference would it make if I got a TV such as the "Samsung UN32H5203AFXZA 32" Smart TV"? - http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-UN32H5203AFXZA-H5203-1080P-WI-FI/dp/B00MYBBFDE I honestly want the best of both worlds which is hard to do because 24 inch TVs/Monitors just seem to small to me.
