An FPS Server guide for developers
It's not rocket science and to be honest, most if not all of these features have been around for some time. However we keep seeing new games released, with a lot of these basic features missing.

Microsoft bringing game mode to Windows 10
Jan 14, 2017 - 6:45 AM - by rudedog
With the next big Windows Update coming in a few months, Microsoft will be adding a few new features to Windows 10 that should make PC gamers happy.

As part of their Creators Update, Microsoft will be adding some PC gaming enhancements to Windows 10
Increased performance in gaming
Our goal is to make Windows 10 the best Windows ever for gaming. With the Creators Update, we’re introducing a new feature called Game Mode. Windows Insiders will start seeing some of the visual elements for Game Mode this week, with the feature being fully operational in builds shortly thereafter. Our vision is for Game Mode to optimize your Windows 10 PC for increased performance in gaming. This is a big update for Windows; we’re looking forward to Insiders getting their hands on this new feature for further testing, and we’ll have much more to share on what it is and how it works soon, so stayed tuned.

Day of Infamy Beta Launch Trailer
Dec 23, 2016 - 6:21 PM - by Pendragon


The latest milestone in Day of Infamy’s development has been reached, as we move from Alpha phase into Beta. Thank you to our passionate community, who provided feedback through our surveys, forums, and analytical data that enabled us to make some major changes. Maps such as Bastogne and Reichswald have been overhauled, improved balance to player classes, performance improvements, and various bug fixes.

We are also introducing several major features, such as stats and rankings, the unit system, air support, and new game modes. New shaders for characters and environment materials have boosted the graphic fidelity of the Source engine. As we move forward into the Beta phase, our focus will shift from experimentation to finalization. We will polish the visuals, improve the user experience, and finalize content.

PC Gamer - So hard to stop cheating
Dec 08, 2016 - 11:29 AM - by rudedog
An interesting article regarding why its so hard to stop cheating on the PC. I find it interesting that developers don't want to talk about it. You would think they owe their customers something in regards to what they are doing to stop cheating
When deliverance came last April, it came not from the type of tech one might suppose Valve's billions could buy, but rather from a chance posting of LMAOBOX's source code on an obscure forum. A good Samaritan passed it on to Valve itself, which quickly incorporated it into its Valve Anti-Cheat System and soon after slapped hordes of players with bans. The sweep made some prime catches, including almost 200 players from Team Fortress 2's UGC esports league.

No Battlefiled title for 2017
Dec 01, 2016 - 6:36 AM - by rudedog
VideoGamer is reporting that EA/Dice will be focusing on Battlefront for 2017 and not a new Battlefield game.
Speaking at the Nasdaq 35th Investor Program earlier today, Jorgensen stated that EA "won't have another Battlefield back for a couple of years. Next year we'll have Battlefront, the Star Wars game."
