DbD player report form seems to work OK

Got a person who kept on jumping on top of this car and staying there to avoid me, moderately, eventually dying. You did not even need dead hard to get up here if you did it right and because I had chainsaw I could get up there as well but.. You still could use that spot to avoid the killer because you can just dodge the chainsaw without the need to jump down.

So I tried the newly made player report form and it seemed to work OK because I noticed that the person had uploaded a screenshot of the ban (24h) to their Steam community page.

Dead by Daylight disconnect bug isn’t ddos

There has been a long time bugs where you may disconnect randomly from the game even if your friends, or even from the same household stay connected in the game.

And you just get disconnected even if you don’t experience any lag. But.. Someone insisted I ddosed his friend off the game, better tactic would be just block the IP address with a firewall if you don’t want people in your games but I did neither. The person got disconnected due to bug(s) in the game.

Besides.. Ddos would kick him off Steam as well depending how big of a lag you would cause on the victims Internet connection and it’s very visible if you are getting ddosed by disconnecting Internet programs (Steam anyone?) and inability to use Internet, voice/text communication with friends.

So if you ever get disconnected but your friends stay in the game and there is nothing wrong with your Internet connection you lost connection to the killer due to bug in the game and not due to ddos.

And ddos is illegal, requires high upload speed or even multiple connections to use efficiently.

Dead by Daylight achievement cheating report

If you unlock, lock, modify or even touch the achievements in Dead by Daylight using a 3rd party tool you will eventually get banned by either the developers or Easy Anti-Cheat. And a lot of players go on witch hunts reporting everyone they even think to have modified their achievements to the developers.

So.. While browsing the forums I found this gem..

And when you go to the profile page of the one who started that thread, Sariko❤™ you will see that he/she has unlocked over half of the achievements at Unlocked 1 Nov @ 7:58pm – which of course is not possible without manually unlocking them with a 3rd party tool.

I guess he/she doesn’t know that the forums is a public place and you could of contacted the developers via email as well, where they cannot see your own achievements if you do it anonymously.

Lost progress

I lost Dead by Daylight progress for the first time two days ago. Thanks to my backup I got all my stuff back, however I still lost my online rank because that is stored server side and cannot be backed up.

If you want to backup your save file read this Steam guide. I use this script myself, https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1109053921. The only thing I lost besides rank was 3 games worth of bloodpoints I had gained between the backup and loss of progress.

Logitech G933 part 2

Follow up to First problems with Logitech G933 post.

The problem persisted and got slightly worse where the headset wouldn’t fully turn off anymore. If I were to turn off the headset, unplug the USB cable and wireless receiver the headset would still be in some sense turned on, the led lights would be constantly turned on in red color and sometimes turn off and back on by itself without plugging it or the receiver to the PC all while it’s turned off.

So I tried contacting their support via email ticketing system and was told to reset the device and re-install firmware, which I had already done and it did not work. So after I confirmed with them that it does not solve the issue I have they just offered to send me a new device altogether, again. After all this G933 was a warranty replace for my broken G930.

I wonder what happens if the new G933 breaks as well.. Do they just keep sending me new ones or can I just ask for a refund and switch to another brand.

First problems with Logitech G933

Yesterday when I went to sleep and turned off the headset I was wondering why the LEDs kept glowing red for a while (didn’t keep staring at them until they turned off so I don’t know for how long they did that) and then the next morning when I woke up I could not turn on the headset fully. Logitech Gaming Software said I had turned them on but I couldn’t hear anything if I turned on Internet radio or another audio source.

So I did a quick Google search and found this.
Then I tried the hardware reset by installing the firmware again and instead of G933Update_v25.exe /FORCE command I had to use G933Update_v27.exe /FORCE because it was the only file I could find inside the folder where it wanted me to run the command in. But it did indeed work and now I can use the headset yet again.

This was the first problem I have had with this Logitech G933 product since I got them to replace my broken Logitech G930 back in March 2017.

Dead by Daylight 1.5.3b patch problems

1.5.3b

FEATURE
  • Adjusted matchmaking logic for Survivor to ignore ranks after waiting for more than 90 seconds (after 90 seconds of waiting, as a survivor, the game will attempt to join any lobby available)

Source: http://steamcommunity.com/app/381210/discussions/0/2592234299574870724/#c1458455461494279926

That causes this to happen:

As if the matchmaking wasn’t broken enough as it was but now you get to play versus any rank without any kind of matchmaking which can cause either boredom or frustration depending on your online ranking and skills.
