Re: Block ads in android

I've not had any luck blocking ads in Android. As far as I can tell you'll not really have any success unless you've rooted it.

A trick that works for some (not online) games is to enable airplane mode and some ads won't come up.

Let me know if you have any better luck than me though.

Re: Help setting up Steam Link

I managed to get it working properly - a big thanks to everyone for the help and suggestions. I was able to manually assign an IP address to the Ethernet network connection and it fixed it - thanks mini. I tried your suggestion kharis but still had the same problem. That being said I have left inter...

Re: Help setting up Steam Link

Re: Help setting up Steam Link

What you've said sounds right Mini.

I'll have a look later to see if there is some way to prioritize which network the PC uses to access the internet. If I can make it use the wireless network first the setup will be perfect.

Re: Help setting up Steam Link

Sorry to dredge this thread up as it's quite old. I've managed to get the Steam Link to work fairly well using power-line adapters (EoP). I have the PC connected with WiFi to the internet and then the PC & Steam Link connected together using Ethernet over power. It all works well but when I wake the...

Just finished Doom and it was great. Played difficulty Hurt me Plenty and I thought it was a challenge but not too hard (there were one or two sections near the end that took some effort). Tried Snapmaps and played the original Doom for a bit which was cool. Tried Multiplayer to see what it's like b...

Re: Help setting up Steam Link

I had a similar problem to this, though it was the PC I couldn't connect via Ethernet. So I got a Ethernet over Power adaptor and that solved everything performance- wise. Ethernet over Power sounds like the way to go. What type/speed rated one are you using? Is 200Mbps enough or would I need 500Mb...

Re: Mellie's Random Game Discussion Thread

How good is Xcom 2? It was on my watch list but then I was reading how you're under constant pressure to complete most of the missions quickly (I didn't read on because spoilers). But basically there were time limits involved. Are you forced to complete the missions quickly? Tthat would put me off. ...

Re: The NBN thread

Optus NBN was out for hours on Sunday for us, and a lot of other people as well it seems. I got booted out of Destiny 2 around 1-2pm and when we got back from a family gathering in the late arvo it was still dead. Came back on about 8-9pm, so a pretty substantial amount of time.

Re: Help me decide which game from Steam Sales?

Picked up Deserts of Kharak because I haven't done any RTS for too long.



Hi Min.

Not sure about Elite. I've done some reading and it sounds like a pretty full on game and I'm not sure I'd have the time to commit or invest in it right now.
