    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    Fortune Island is fantastic, though. Gravel and dirt in a Scooby is my favorite way to see the sights, and there's tonnes of that with fantastic scenery here. Lightning is amazing, surprised it's taken this long to feature. I really appreciate the treasure money, too. There's a nice variety of tasks to do before the chest appears. Will make short work of buying those castles.
  2. It is, does it use Bluetooth? I figured it worked off the network connection. Anyway, think we solved hers, somehow the account wasn't synchronized any more. Did that first, then the transfer worked first time. Cheers for the reminder! Just helped her beat the Elite 4. Bit of a slog, with Pokemon in mid 40s to low 50s. Got it done, though. Think it helps a lot to do it local co-op.
  3. Yup, and we have the Switch icon in the list of Pokemon in Go.
  4. Also, do berries stack? Wife just used nanab and razz to catch Articuno. I thought using one removed prior berries like in Go.
  5. I'm finding the Go to Let's Go transfer very temperamental, on two different Android phones. It has worked in the past for my wife, now it won't at all. We've tried all combinations of setting let's go ready to receive and then start go transferring, and vice versa. Just sits there and times out. My phone is a little better, but still, I have to time it just right. What are we doing wrong? Everything is up to date. It's network based right, nothing to do with Bluetooth etc? Phones and Switch are on the same WiFi network.

    Yeah, I've got the engine sound getting stuck, occasionally. It also crashed in the middle of initial load last night, which is annoying because it takes forever to load. Also, after playing for a couple of hours and then shutting down the console in standby, when I next turned it on it was completely powered off. Again, not really acceptable in a closed system.

    Forza Horizon 4 - Open-UK Racing

    The Forza series is a pretty important, Xbox exclusive, yeah? Because 10 weeks after launch, this sort of nonsense is inexcusable: I could see there were duplicates after the results of the first race, but I figured they'd fixed the championships by now. I don't think I've completed a championship yet, due to this defect. Anyway, I press on and after winning the second race, I was a point behind corposant. Bit worried now, but thought I had decent odds of scoring more than his dupes combined. Nope! 3 wins, max points, 2nd place. The other thing, which is really rather sad in a racing game, is that it's so inconsequential. I still got a tonne of fame and credits, and the bonus for my difficulty level, so unless you're tying to get the first place uber difficulty bonus, there isn't much point worrying about this. Other than it's death by a thousand papercuts with Microsoft (and related party) output, of late.

    I had a read through a few pages of the Reddit, but couldn't see anything obvious. Some banned for multiple accounts, etc. I think you're probably going the right route, otherwise see if you can get someone on chat. I'm really curious what caused it. I thought I posted in here, but it must have been in off topic. I've joined the Bing insider program. Nothing useful so far, although I had to pass a screening with questionnaire to get in. Anyway, on the insider page it mentions they're going to add American Sign Language to Bing, which is amazing. Windows 10 should be all about polish, stability, and accessibility, not nonsense new features. Keep that crap to apps.

    Pokemon Go

    The dust and candy requirements for the new move change option are awfully steep. If it's the same random outcome as using a TM item, I can't see me ever using it.

  11. No, I have to swap out Pikachu (67). He's all electric, plus iron tail (steel), which is literally useless in some cases. But I want him having those moves. Luckily, my Blastoise (54) is hard as nails, and basically won the 7th and 8th badges solo.

    Fallout 76 - Prepare Your GaaS Masks

    The Herculean effort required to bring up crappy decisions, or get defects prioritized, and the stigma it can cause is why I hate software development so much. Luckily, it's easy to jump to a different job where the same thing doesn't happen, that's why we all love our jobs. Don't blame the doers here, blame the decision makers.

    So there's 3 search trackers: search in general, search in Edge, and mobile search. How does mobile search work? My searches in Android Edge just count as general and Edge. I briefly tried their launcher, liked it, but had a weird bug that completely broke it, so had to uninstall. I don't think searches in the search bar counted as mobile, though? And then I tried the Bing app, but I wanted links to open in Edge, not the built in browser. So I just went back to using Edge. Not a big deal, I just couldn't figure it out. I don't think I hit my daily limit either way.

    Actually, I've been avoiding it, assuming it was the same as 3, but that sounds quite decent.

    Doom - 25 years old today

    Quake was hard on your PC, though. I barely managed it on my 486, it wasn't until a fateful night a storm fried my CPU, and the insurance coughed up for a Pentium, that I could properly play it. That storm turned out to be amazing. Single thunder clap, surge knackered the PC. Insurance paid for a then equivalent, which was a P66, but Intel was phasing that out because of the 2+3=4.99999999 bug, so they actually delivered a P75. Holy crap, what an upgrade.
