2021.12.09 10:22 LolaAlphonse The new player experience and Warhammer stores
As is a pretty common experience during lockdown, my friend got me into Warhammer. I spend a lot of time staring in front of bright computers for work and leisure, so having a hobby where I can closely stare at tiny figures was a welcome break for my eyes, and now that we could socialise, dropping by each others houses with a rucksack full of army figures seemed prefereable to pubbing.
As a teen, I'd spent a lot of time engrossed with 40k lore, reading on the Wiki's during school lunch, so I was at least familiar with the background, but after failing to assemble AirFix models I'd decided that I had neither the attention span or inherent skill to paint a whole army of tiny buggers. So I scratched the vague itch with Dawn of War and called it a day.
But long story short, years passed and I went from a no-income teen to a some-disposable-income twenty-something. Familiar prey for the wargaming community, and thus I got trapped.
As a newcomer to the hobby, I chatted with my friends who were already in, and I whiled away the hours home-working on YouTube (starting from some recommendations of MidWinter Mini's, Miniac, SquidMar, and Lyla Mev, although I'd love to hear who other people follow).
But by far and away the most helpful part for me getting started was the staff at my local Warhammer. For me, that's Worcester (UK). We've got a super friendly guy there, who is happy to spend any time chatting to each and every customer. The free painting tutorials were a lifesaver, as there were some basic questions I had that YouTube tutorials couldn't answer in a way that fit in my head. Meeting other enthusiasts, getting some guidance, and being casually able to stretch what should have been a thirty minute tutorial into ninety (as I was so engrossed in my Vindicator) without any complaint from the store manager was an amazing introduction to the game and the social scene that surrounds and empowers it.
I'm not too sure what I expected, but with the weight on FLGS and other communities, and Games Workshop's angle of a high-priced luxury, as well as the reported issues of excessively low pay for their employees, I guess I was imagining a colder process. And yet, even dipping into London's store on Tottenham Court Road, I was met with the same heavy enthusiasm. I got the feeling that all of the staff would happily ignore up-selling me more plastic toys in favour of chatting for hours about minutiae of lore, game mechanics, and their favoured tips for painting and playing.
I'm not trying to take a bash at imagined meta-tier stuff, and I know Games Workshop has its problems as an employer, but from my experience of interactions with their store managers it was a great introduction, and set a nice tone for a welcoming community in person.

2021.12.09 10:22 Strange_Many_4498 Small consistent bug
On console if you bring up the ammo selection after picking a gun, whether you choose a custom ammo or not, the picture of all that guns bullets are visible no matter what list you look through. (Such as the consumables and tools list) the special ammo is visible over the other item listed. So you’ll end up looking at a frag but it’ll also have the picture of dumdum ammo floating beside the frag pic.

2021.12.09 10:22 jsemhloupahonza A better way to co-coach with your friends
Most of the time I see learners trying to coach each other, since they do not have the experience, they don't have the tools to be a good technical coach. A motivational coach 100% yes, but diagnosing why their friend(s) is(are) struggling to catch waves etc may hinder progression. Just like a few days ago, a group of guys drifted over to where I was sitting and in between trading waves I would hear them giving each other advice that wasn't spot on. A number of surf resorts/retreats do video analysis, so I recommend taking videos of each other and posting them here. Just a humble suggestion.

2021.12.09 10:22 1i3to Can someone help me out with city planning please
| So, I am trying to learn to plan districts ahead of time and could really do with some examples. Any of you guys have some time to help me plan initial 2-3 cities with key wonders / district adjacencies? Strat I am currently working on is science with possible mid-late game domination. I watched multiple youtube videos but it always seems like there are too many variables.|

2021.12.09 10:22 HeckinGhost Post patch freezing
Hey, so as a Wattson main the first thing I did was blow a terrible amount of money to get an heirloom. Imagine how I feel now that I'm freezing part way into every arena game. Full freeze. Sound, video, everything cuts. Cannot alt f4, can tab out. Have to close with Task Manager.
It might be that I've mostly been playing arenas, but it hasn't happened in any other mode.
Did all the basic fixes, verified integrity, reinstalled, even moved the game over to my SSD (It's got a small print of space, ended up deleting a heavily modded fallout to make room.) No dice.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.

2021.12.09 10:22 GrayGalahad EA VP6 Video Codec Issue
Has the issue of the VP6 video codec, that EA primarily uses, been fixed on Dolphin? I am just asking because I have seen videos where games like "James Bond: From Russia With Love" for the GameCube version has the scanline issue during the intro videos while emulating on Dolphin. Whereas the same game for the PS2 version running on PCSX2 is easily able to play the VP6 video format without scanlines.
