    Re: What PC Rig for 3K

    Until recently TW games were best served with an overclocked Intel CPU e.g. 7700K@5Ghz (only 4 cores + HT needed due to bad multi-threading support in TW games) since it offered the best single core...

    Re: Ambush 95% chance, fails every time

    What VanZandt said. You have to trigger the game engine to use the current 'random' number somewhere else in the game. After that you have a 95% chance that the next 'random' number is 95 or lower.
