Well the cheapest solution is probably just to switch to 768p when you want to use the TV.

Did your computer automatically switch to 768p when you plugged the TV in? You could also try forcing the output to 1080p and see if the TV shows anything. It's not likely, but hey that's all I can come up with.

The TV does NOT support 1080p input, but I think the Intel graphics fakes a 1080i, even though the support page for the TV says (I think) it doesn't support it.

Edit: nope, I read wrong. The TV (LG 42LB1R-ZE if you're interested) does support 1080i, but I needed to install Intel's program to change to it.

So, presumably, there's something going wrong in the mirroring a 1080p and a 1080i monitor.

Decided that I wanted a TV mirroring one of my computer monitors for couch gaming. Bought a used TV, turns out it's not full HD (it's 1360 * 768). If I just connect up a HDMI splitter to it and my HD monitor supposedly it would downscale the monitor to keep the TV happy.



So, a few days pass and I decide to just up and buy a HDMI splitter and plug it in and see what happens. Turns out, they were right, the TV is happy and the monitor now 768p.

I tested to just take a 1080p picture and downscale it to 768 and it's good enough that I would prefere it to have my monitor stay 1080p.

So, how would you go about this? I found a HDMI Downscaler, but I'd rather not spend that much money. Is there any other way I could go about this?
Well, right now, I'm in my second year of college as a Computer Science major after switching out of animation. So I'm still figuring some stuff out.

First look for a disassembly guide on youtube or something then buy the keyboard for the model of your computer and from there put one and one together and it should be as easy as one, two, three.
Well I do have it on my computer so I can't really complain much

Imagine if they put skyrim on the Wii then oculus rifted that bitch and all that shnazy stuff. That kind of sounds like an awesome idea

Woah me too, except uh... I still have to take more VLPA's cause the UW thinks to be a computer scientist you need to know all about 19th century literature and political geography
So in relation to this, I am actually about to start back school come January as a Computer Science major, and plan to delve deep into some intense programming studies. and possibly start working as an android developer.
Hey I was trying to figure out how to play sound through multiple headsets on my Windows 7 computer without using a splitter. Specifically a usb headset and an audio jack headset. When I plug them in it seems I can only select one at a time so if its a simple fix so if someone has an answer please let me know.

Does windows 8 come with modifiable themes? Like in windows xp, you could change your whole computer to have new cursors, new icons etc etc. If someone created a windows 7 theme and they disabled pressing the windows key, you could reasonably simulate windows 7 on your windows 8 pc

Windows 8 is Windows 7 for the most part. The biggest difference is that this (start menu):


is full screen and looks like this:


Unless I click the button in the bottom left corner, or the windows key, it looks like this for me:


To me, the hate against Windows 8 is just people who haven't tried it shouting at it because that's what other people on the internet do.

Oh, and yeah, if you wish to have back the windows 7 style window instead of fullscreen start menu, you can install programs that does that.

Windows 8 is faster, has a better task manager, works better with multi screen. The only problem I have with Windows 8 is that some settings are in the Windows 8 style menus.

In my experience, Win 8 is a lot faster than 7 on the same computer.

Go with 8. (.1)

Win 8 has a stupid teen-girl-cell-phone interface but it's just funny to laugh at. It doesn't stop you from running your warez and gamez and appz, so it's not worth losing the performance over.
Depends what you want out of your computer honestly. Windows 8 runs games more fluently, but has a confusing interface for its main desktop. 7 on the other hand has the classic style of interface but runs it's programs a little slower because of how the intereface has been simplified.

After several nights of poor sleep in a row (Taksim Square in Istanbul was noisy, and Jerusalem had an amazing bar that kept me out way too late) I've finally started sleeping well now that I'm in Tel Aviv. At least until I had the following dream --

Access to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem is strictly limited for non-Muslims, with only one possible entryway available during specific hours of the day. I had just missed the day's window, and was pouting outside the gate when Alex showed up with a sandwich in hand. I started relaying my disappointment to him, when he walked right past me and started conversing with the guard at the gate. Before even a minute had passed, he was excitedly offering his untouched sandwich to the guard, who stated that he couldn't accept the sandwich if it was pork, as he was a devout Muslim. Alex assured him that it was not pork, then quietly pulled out his cell phone and started filming as the man took his first bite.

The guard quickly realized his mistake, threw the juicy pork sandwich to the ground and came charging at Alex -- who was laughing by this point -- and only after several other guards held their partner back, and many profuse apologies on our part, did we manage to get away. I was livid, but we'd managed to escape any serious harm, so I told Alex to consider himself lucky and we went our separate ways.

Despite the near-miss, Alex proceeded to upload the video he'd taken once he was back at his computer the next day, and international outrage over American interference at one of Islam's holiest sites quickly plunged the entire region into war. I realized I'd probably never be able to visit the site in my lifetime, and woke up from the dream out of pure despair.

Thanks.

Yea, I tried it on Fire Fox at my home and work computer.

I'm not sure it works how it's supposed to. For Windows phone, atleast.

Supforumcom.jer without clicking/zooming anything after going to the url:


After zooming out as far out as possible:

Makes text really hard to read because of phone size. I can't see any difference between this and the computer version.

Subfuram:

I think the HTML screwed itself up a bit. Possible Internet Explorer Windows Phone issue.

Inside truck:

This works fine. A "problem" is that the black pixel to the right of the post is basicly invisible since it's so small and next to the black border of my phone. It makes it feel like you can scroll to the right when you can't. If you made the message-box a bit smaller than the full width of the phone it would probably be better.


Another picture of subferim:

Look at the scroll bar to the right. There is so many trucks per page and they're relatively tall compared to the computer version. It's like a waterfall of trucks. Truckerfall. Truckfall. Watertruck. Truckwater...
Also, if you look at the placement of the boxes around the text they're incorrect unless the name of the truck has 2 rows of text.

Few of the runs that I've wanted to watch this year have been at times where I've been awake and computer accessible. I wanted to see the Cave Story run, but couldn't so I just watched a TAS instead.

I am watching the Yoshi's Island now. There was a fire alarm around 1:12 that fucked EVERYTHING up.

Basically, #include <header.h> will look in standard OS locations for header files. Like, I dunno, gcc's install directory, Visual Studio's defined header locations, whatever. It will also look in the locations you pass to the compiler, probably with a flag like -I"../path/to/hedders". This is why the compiler can't find it.

You actually want #include "header.h", which will look in the current directory (or as superjer notes you can pass a relative path in there, if that's what turns you on).

So to clarify: #include "BlackThornDemon.h". What kind of header file has that name anyway? :s

There's more, you probably want #include <Arduino.h> but that seems to be working regardless, also you will need #include "../BlackThornDemon.h", just like superjer said. When it tells you it can't find the file, there's a reason. It's because it's not where it's looking! And I tend to trust the computer when it says it can't find it.

I actually like how it looks. Unfortunately it is rediculously limited though. No steam game shorcuts work because of how they're actually URL-shortcuts.

Steam shortcuts can be manually added by moving them into a specific folder, edit something to make the menu realize that they're there and last you have to restart the entire computer. A bit too many steps for me.

The problem is the lack of windows. Windows should have windows, or they should call it Fullscreens so we know not to buy it.

Well, there's that.

And they made the start menu look like a teenage girl's myspace page.

And the new search never finds what I'm looking for.

And it pointlessly has "categories" or some shit.

And it takes 11 minutes to recognize that I've plugged in my mouse.

And file associations default to opening annoying Metro apps from desktop mode so I can't look at a photo while reading something else, without changing the associations.

And a zillion things like that.

And it has multiple screen support but it's worse than UltraMon, which I was using before.

And I can't upgrade my graphics drivers without bricking the whole system.

And even when I try to use the Metro crap, nothing works. Like I see an interesting news story in the News tile, click it, and that story is nowhere to be found.

And the two IE's don't seem to know about each other.

Oh, and since upgrading to 8, my computer can no longer wake from hibernation.

hello, i thought u know alot about pc so i wanted to ask about a problem i got.
My computer wont turn on normally. the light will go on the blue one and the red one but then the red one turns off and no boot. when it works, the red will flash. I dont know the problem, first it hought ram, then energy, then video, now BIOS but i dont know, i get it to turn on randomly, trying to take all ram out, disconnecting and connecting all, connecting different outlet, reseting BIOS, nothing, today i jsut opened the CD thingy and it beep once then it turned on. i once got 8 beeps, another 9 and today 7. ?

Also Win 8 has crashed on me more than a few times, which doesn't help.

It does have some weird problems which I assume will go away after Microsoft figures it out.

So far some bugs that I have noticed:

It changes timezones randomly. Random as in sometimes when I start up my computer it thinks it's in the US as is runnning about 7 hours wrong.

It forgets what some programs were doing just before. For an example, when you open Steam it will target your last played game. That's not always the case and it will sometimes target The Walking Dead.
This problem also exists with Chrome, but that everytime that I run Chrome it has forgotten everything. The window it opens is not located and not the size I've chosen. Firefox works fine, so I've gone back to it for the moment.

I can't watch the videos on Steam. Steam tells me I need to install the "other browser" version of flash player which doesn't actually seem to install. This might be a problem on Adobe's side though.

Trying to watch youtube videos at 720p or 1080p freezes the video and firefox but the sound is fine.

FORTRAN is actually case insensitive, so you can call it FoRtRaN if you so please. Its IO is one of the most horrific things I have ever undertaken. It is physically painful. If you call a file .f and not .f90 then every line must start with 6 spaces or the character 'c' indicating that it is a comment. The parser is retarded. To work out the dependencies of a file, the compiler must look at the .mod file associated with a module. The .mod file is not created until you compile. But what if you don't want to compile until you know the dependencies? Tough!

They have attempted to make it backwards compatible so there have been no far-ranging and indeed really necessary changes to the language. Really, they should make a Fortran where all previous nonsense is ignored, swept under the carpet, whatever.

Everything is passed by reference, but there are no proper pointers. There are both subroutines and functions. Functions can return values, subroutines cannot. Functions can be pure, meaning they have no side effects, but they don't have to be.

This is possibly the most retarded, pants-on-head, why did you not CHANGE THIS CHRIST ALMIGHTY feature: unless you have a line at the top of your source file saying "implicit none", Fortran will assume any identifier you have not declared is a valid variable. Yes. If it starts with [ijklmn] it's of type integer, otherwise real. The only way in modern Fortran to discern between float and double is to say real(kind(some_variable)).

The reason I'm doing Fortran right now is because I am doing a Masters in High Performance Computing. It's pretty cool, we're learning GPU programming at the moment in one of the lectures (the Portland Group actually make a Fortran-CUDA compiler). I spend my time writing shitty parallel code and running said code on the 32nd largest computer in the world :D

Code sample:
FORTRAN code
!> Module for loading files consisting of arrays of ints and floats
!! representing land type and population densities.
module load
use grid
implicit none

!> Integer parameter, ideally a unique file identifier.
integer, parameter :: fileid = 222

contains
subroutine load_terrain(map_image, terrain)
integer, dimension(:,:), allocatable, intent(out) :: terrain
integer :: M, N
character(30) map_image, string_format
open(unit = fileid, file = map_image)
read(fileid, *) M, N
! Write map width into format string, so we know how many ints to read.
write(string_format, '(''('', i4, ''(i1,1x))'')') M
allocate(terrain(M,N))
! Contains an implicit loop to read N lines from the file, but is nice
! and compact.
read(fileid, string_format) terrain
close(fileid)
end subroutine load_terrain
end module load


After this project, never again. Unless I have to.

This covers a lot of the reasons I hate C++, in case you're interested:

cpp-home.com/tutorials/244_1.htm

Why C++ Sucks

C++ sucks because it is a mis-designed pile of crap.

All you have to do is read Bjarne Stroustrop's book on the design and evolution of C++ to understand why: C++ is the iMac of computing languages.

It was designed to have those features necessary to achieve popular success--not those features necessary to be a good programming language.

In the case of something like the iMac, much of the "prettiness" does not necessarily come at the expense of functionality--but this is not always the case. Reducing the iMac's expandability makes it simpler to use--but also potentially consigns it to a gutter market a few years down the road.

The Big Mistake: C Compatibility
In Stroustrop's mind, making C++ compatible with C was instrumental, crucial to its success.

I don't disagree. Plenty of other good object oriented languages are out there, and they've never found much success. Certainly the overhead of learning a brand new language is undoubtedly a significant barrier to acceptance.

I don't think it's any coincidence that Java chose to use C syntax for its core constructs, either.

But C++ went far further than Java in compatibility. C code works nearly unchanged in a C++ compiler. The model of how a C++ program can be separately compiled (i.e. split into multiple separate files) is identical to that of C.

But this introduces hosts of other problems, some which C++ addresses, some of which it addresses with problematic design, and some of which it simply falls down on.

This is not to laud Java--I do not have a particularly high opinions of that language. It does many good things, but owing to its history it also has some odd design elements. (Foremost amongst them being reliance on interpreters during its initial introduction.)

Keep It Simple, Stupid
C++'s biggest problem is its size. People will tell you that this is no big deal; just subset C++ down to whatever part of it you're willing to use; that can be a C subset or something a little larger, or the whole thing.

This logic can be used to justify an infinitely complex language, so one should hesitate to accept it at face value.

The biggest flaw with the argument is that it forces compiler writers to implement a larger language; correctness will be harder to get right, and optimization will suffer. In the case of C++, however, this no longer matters; there are essentially no "just C" compilers anymore to compare to, so any lowered performance of C++ is no doubt also seen by C.

Another significant problem is that it requires an investment of effort to select an appropriate subset. Moreover, you will have difficulty finding books that teach this subset; and, indeed, if you acquire a C++ algorithms book, the odds that the subset chosen for that book matches that of yours is low.

In other words, subsetting is the same as fragmenting the language into lots of separate dialects; it has all the same problems as that, with the added cost of none of those dialects having unique names. What does it mean to say "I've used C++ for six years" on a resume?

Similarly, learning a subset does you no good if you work with other people's code, and they do not use the subset you are expecting; you must be able to understand their subset, and even write it.

Finally, learning a subset doesn't guarantee that you won't avoid being bit by something that's not in the subset you've chosen. For example, you might choose (wisely, IMHO) to avoid using function overloading. You can't tell the compiler this, however, and thus you might unintentionally name two functions the same thing, and cause unimaginable problems thereby. Sure, you'll eventually figure it out, it'll just be another dumb bug, but why use a language that has any number of such gotchas lurking around every corner?

Suppose you choose to just use the C subset of C++. One of the changes C++ makes to C rules is that you can no longer automatically cast from (void *) to other pointer types. The reason for this is clear; in C++, (void *) types are used sufficiently often that hidden bugs might occur. (There is a counter-argument to this even in a C++ context: C++ encourages you to typecast more often than necessary, possibly masking bugs because your typecast hides what would be a real warning.)

Is this a real problem for C? No, it's not, it just means you need to do some extra casting. The following code doesn't work:


   x = malloc(sizeof(x) * num_elements);

Instead you must code it as


    x = (mytype *) malloc(sizeof(x) * num_elements);

Of course, if you are familiar with the idiom found in the first example, you see the flaw in the second; the first version avoids a bug by not explicitly naming x's type; thus if that type changes, the code still (most likely) does the right thing. With the second code, if you change x's type, C++ will complain about the type error, so it won't introduce an error--just unnecessary typing to fix it.

If you're using C++ proper, you would just use the new operator to sidestep this... ignoring the fact that new requires the name of the type...

Too Much Typing
I guess I'm just a whiner if many of my problems boil down to C++ requiring too much typing. Typing is such a tiny fraction of programming that it's not that big a deal. Yet it grates to see such extra 'accidental' (in the sense of Fred Brooks 'No Silver Bullet', i.e. in opposition to 'essential') work required for no good reason.

Example #1
In C, I write a new function, and then add a prototype to the header file. Having to add that prototype is annoying 'accidental' effort; there is no reason this redundancy must be shoveled onto the programmer (it could easily be automatically generated, a la Java or Borland's Turbo Pascal). That something like a header file is needed for separate compilation is undeniable; but that I must maintain it by hand is largely silly.

Still, it's not that much work. Cut and paste, put an 'extern' at the front of the line and a ';' at the end of the line, and you're done:



C file:
   int myFooBar(Foo *foothing, Bar *barthing)
   {
      ...
   }

H file:
   extern int myFooBar(Foo *foothing, Bar *barthing);

Whether this worked out by chance or not, these are easy editting operations to perform without moving your hands from the keyboard; cut a single line (in 'vi', 'yy'; in a windows editor: home, shift-end, ctrl-c), switch buffers, paste, go to beginning of line and type 'extern', go to end of line and type ';'.

The effort is justified because all this information needs to be available for separate compilation.

Consider the equivalent thing for a method in C++:


CPP file:
   int Foo::myBar(Bar *barthing)
   {
      ...
   }

H file:
   class Foo
   {
      ...
      int myBar(Bar *barthing);
      ...
   };

Sure, in this example, the function declaration itself may be shorter, making C++ look better than C, but I'm comparing C++ to a similar, imaginary OO language that doesn't suck.

To make the C++ cut and paste, I don't need to add 'extern' at the front. Instead I have to reach into the middle of the declaration and delete the 'Foo::'. This is actually more work--at least for me, it takes longer, and more thinking, to do this. (You have to actually parse the declaration, which gets more complex as the return value type gets more complex.)

Example #2
Worse yet, C++ makes this necessary in circumstances that it shouldn't be.

Suppose that class Foo in the example above inherits from Baz; and Baz includes as a member in its declaration virtual int myBar(Bar *barthing);. Now, when I want to go implement Foo, I choose to override the definition of myBar found in Baz.

C++ makes me spell out in the declaration of class Foo exactly which methods I'm going to override.

Even though the whole point of virtual functions is that the dispatch occurs at run-time--no compile-time support needed.

Pointless.

Oh, and did I mention that this sort of thing leads to extra unnecessary recompilation?

Why?
I think I know why C++ does it this way. The thing is, if I subclass Foo to make, say, Biz, then if Biz doesn't define myBar for itself, it will need to store a pointer to Foo::myBar in its virtual function table. Thus, the compiler needs to know about everything that goes on under the hood with Foo to build Biz correctly. (Similarly if Biz defines it itself, but calls ::myBar.)

That means, of course, that everything 'under the hood' must be exposed in the class definition. The entire 'private' section must be exposed to subclasses (and also so that 'sizeof' works correctly).

You can try to work around the excess recompilation introduced by this by having multiple header files with differing levels of detail in them; the subclasses and the implementation of the class see the full description, whereas the rest of the world only sees the public definition, unless they need to sizeof... well, as you can imagine, I don't know anyone who actually tries to do that. (It would help if you could flag a class definition as 'incomplete' so inclusions of the wrong header file would fail to compile, instead of producing bugs.) I'm not actually sure that doing this is legal C++, anyway.

This all misses the point. Part of C++'s success is that it didn't require rewriting the linker (after all, initially it just was translated into C code). Separate compilation could be done without needing to see the innards of other classes if the virtual function tables were built up at link time. Even without rewriting the linker, the patching could be done at runtime, during startup. This does not need exposure. (The sizeof problem would still remain.)

Example #3
Yet another case is that of the C-style "static function". Suppose I decide I want to break Foo's implementation of myBar down into multiple smaller steps, using helper functions. Since the code is based around an object, I still want to make these be methods of the class so that I get a 'hidden this' and can refer to instance variables conveniently.


  /* C code: */
     static void myFooBarHelpFunction(Foo *foothing, int intermediate_value)
     {
        ...
     }

     int myFooBar(Foo *foothing, Bar *barthing)
     {
        int value = computeSomething(foo,bar);
        myFoobarHelpFunction(foo, value);
        ...
     }

  // C++ code:
     void Foo::myBarHelpFunction(int intermediate_value)
     {
        ...
     }

     int Foo::myBar(Bar *barthing)
     {
        int value = computeSomething(bar);
        myBarHelpFunction(value);
        ...
     }  

The C++ example is incomplete. As you can see, it lacks the static keyword. This is because, to implement this in C++ like this, you have to add a declaration of this function to the class definition. That's right, to do a local, hidden modularization of this function, which cannot be seen or used by anybody else, including subclasses, you have to touch the class definition, which normally (as noted above) is exposed in the header file to anyone and everyone who interacts with the class. (At least this seems to be the case. Am I missing something?)

Oh, thanks.

And don't forget to delete Foo:: when you add it to the header file.

You can work around this by privately subclassing the type, thus allowing you to create a local class MySubClass type with local, non-exposed declarations. You still end up with a declaration and a definition, as opposed to C where you only need the definition if you put the functions in the right order. And you will have to downcast pointers that are passed in. But it avoids the header dependency.

Pet Peeves
Don't get me wrong. The above three examples aren't just pet peeves. I think of them as serious design flaws. I have pet peeves about the language and the typing therein as well, but they lean more towards personal taste:


Having to prefix every method definition with Foo:: is stupid. We should be able to wrap our definitions inside something like class Foo { ... } and not have to prefix with Foo:: inside it. Of course you could do exactly this, but you can only have one definition of a class, so you can't do this and also include a header file with the class declaration in it, so you need to include the full declaration locally. (Also, providing a mechanism like this would also make cutting and pasting into the header file easier.)
constructors and deconstructors return void, even thought C++ denies it. Yes, removing the need for void from the parameter list and as a prefix on constructors/deconstructors can be seen as an opportune 'fix' to reduce typing, since C++ doesn't back-support K&R C the way ANSI/ISO C does. Sorry, I don't buy it; the amount of typing saved is irrelevent. (It's one thing to save lots of cut&paste editting motion; saving typing four characters while one is already in the middle of typing characters is saving me something like 5 seconds a week.) It introduces a pointless inconsistency.
etc. (Why waste time on pet peeves when there's more juicy bits?)
Indirection
Indirection is the source of nearly all that is good about computer programs. Pointers or handles are crucial to writing code that does more than formula processing.

A relatively crucial element of object-oriented programming is the introduction of indirect function calls. Sure, imperative programming has them as well, but most OO languages make them ubiquitous; many people consider virtual the most important keyword distinguishing C++ and C--that is, if you never use virtual, you may be using classes, but you could just as easily be writing in C.

The thing is that unlike, say, Smalltalk, not all indirection in C++ is at run-time. Stroustrop considered this an important element of C++'s success--by providing multiple mechanisms, you can select the one with the appropriate trade-off of power vs. performance overhead.

But more is not necessarily better. One can imagine a language in which a compiler makes these trade-offs automatically for you. You can imagine a language in which a single keyword changes the underlying implementation, with no syntactic or semantic variations visible.

Not so C++.

In C, a function call can only happen one way:

... foo(x,y); ...

If 'foo' is a variable that is a function pointer, this call is indirect; if not, it is direct. You generally can't tell from syntax, although many people choose to use one of two conventions to distinguish them: either a naming convention (function pointer variables include an extra word in the name), or a syntactic convention for function pointer variables (which is actually legal with function names as well, if I recall correctly):

... (*foo)(x,y); ...

(There are actually some cases where the syntax is unambigous about which, for example (foo->bar)(x) must be an indirect call--that is, any expression where the name would go.)

Assuming you use one or the other convention, then, the two modes of function call are unambiguous to distinguish. Assuming the call is direct, there is a simple mechanic for finding the callee; search back through the source, looking for a prior definition of 'foo' which is now in scope. If not found, grep the header files for exported functions. Only one function named 'foo' can be exported without introducing linker errors, so the result is unambiguous.

If a function call is indirect, the exact same search will tell you where the function variable is defined. An arbitrary effort may be necessary to be expended to determine where that call goes.

Object-oriented languages attempt to make indirection more useful by structuring it. Instead of going "just anywhere", a message send must go to one of the subclasses of a given class, and share that name.

Improving the ability of a programmer to understand indirect function calls is surely a laudable goal. Object-oriented languages are rich with designs people would be unlikely to attempt with C's unwieldy do-it-yourself function indirection methodology.

But there is much to dislike about C++'s execution.

Syntax
As noted above, there is exactly one syntax in C that leads to function calls (the variant syntax in the latter example stands for the exact same semantics); one syntax, but two semantics.

In C++ there are eight syntaces and quite a few semantics.

No joke:

regular function call (expression context): foo(a,b)
constructor call (declaration context): Foo foo
constructor call (declaration context): Foo foo(a,b)
constructor call (expression context): new Foo
constructor call (expression context): new Foo(a,b)
destructor call (block end): }
destructor call (statement context): delete foo;
overloaded operator (expression context): foo+bar
(I'll fold copy/assignment constructors in with overloaded operators.)
Even if you disagree with my splitting the constructors up that way, there'd still be six; moreover, unambiguously, there are four different contexts in which function calls occur (declaration, expression, statement, and block end).

Constructors and Destructors
Of course, if you use constructors and deconstructors in the "right" way, this isn't as bad as it sounds. Constructors and deconstructors only do "good things"; the constructors and deconstructors happen at "times" when such things are best suited to run.

But, nonetheless, this doesn't necessarily make programs easy to comprehend. An example off the top of my head: if an object in a deconstructor removes itself from a hash table, introducing a bug because the hash table shrinks itself, screwing up the currently executing hash iterator, you may spend a long time discovering what is going on.

If we accept, though, that the constructor and destructor calls are there because that leads to better, more comprehensible semantics--that any object-oriented language is going to need something like constructors and destructors--we are only left with two syntaces to discuss: plain function calls and overloaded operators.

Overloaded Operators
Many style guides strongly recommend disallowing overloaded operators. Some advocate allowing operator overloading for mathematical data structures, like bignums, complex numbers, vectors, matrices, and the like. (Care and handling of copy and assignment constructors is more complex, so I'll simply dispense with attempting to argue about them.)

The argument for avoiding overloading operators is often this simple one: it is to easy for someone reading the code to not realize that there are function calls going on. An ordinary syntax that does not normally resemble a function call is suddenly potentially a function call.

The argument for allowing it for math is simple: the expediency of the syntax overwhelms the argument against it. Nothing particularly surprising is going on under the hood, except possibly the performance overhead.

I cannot argue against this philosophy. I choose not to apply it, as the amount of actual addition or subtraction of vectors in my code is so inconsequential that the typing cost is insignificant; nor do I find the shorter, simpler syntax involving overloaded operators to cause me to introduce fewer bugs. But this is surely more a matter of taste than of logic.

Clearly, one would like operator overloading to follow the principle of least suprise. Operators which normally are side-effect free should remain side-effect free. One would hope operators which are normally commutive remain commutative, and associative associative; but this is not always the case (e.g. matrix multiplication). 

But in a short function, in which the types of the variables are obvious, one has trouble imagining operator overloading causing much trouble.

Idioms
The advantages of concise idiom are legion. I have an enormous number of C idioms I use without thought; idioms in the sense that if you are not familiar with them, the meaning of the code may not be immediately obvious. They are easy enough to figure out if you stop and think, but the power of the idiom comes from the lack of need to think; it is easier to understand a larger chunk of code all at once if the elements of it are idioms.

Here are two idioms I use frequently:

   // n loops from n-1 ... 0
   while (n--) {
      ...
   }

   // i = (i + 1) mod n
   if (++i == n) i = 0;

Notably, these idioms rely on preincrementing and postdecrementing, so the odds are high that a reader will have to stop and hesitate and think about the meaning of the code. (The idioms would not normally have the comments describing their meaning.)

Idioms make operator overloading doubly tempting. One aspect is that it allows the use of familiar idioms in new contexts:

   for(FooIter *i(foo); (bool) i; ++i) {
      ... *i ...
   }

(Something like that--I'm not very familiar with C++ operator overloading.)
A second aspect is that it allows the creation of new idioms. Expression syntax is much more powerful for idiomatic constructions than function call syntax. You may have seen this sort of construction in C, using a conventional return value to empower an idiom:


   x = listAdd(listAdd(listAdd(listAdd(newList(), a), b), c), d);

(Specifically, I've seen code like that used for adding elements to a window.)
The indirection and nesting there is ugly, and so you can see it as much clearer if you could use an idiom like:


   x = newList() + a + b + c + d;

I'm not suggesting that people would like this off the cuff; but they might find it tempting to allow operator overloading simply because it allows them to coin such idioms--not just to save typing, but because it becomes much more rapidly comprehenisble. (The nested listAdd()s above are also an idiom, but the difference in ease of comprehension is apparent.)

But this way lies madness!

Such idioms may be powerful, but they build on new, unrelated meanings of the underlying symbols.

It is (I imagine) exactly this reasoning that introduced the ubiquitous operator overloading found in the C++ stream library.

Ask a C programmer what this code does:

a << b << c << d << e;

She will tell you "nothing". None of the operators have side-effects. In C.

Do they have side-effects in C++?

It depends on what functions they call.

C++ programmers swiftly adjust to the use of <<. It seems natural and perfectly reasonable. But don't be fooled by it. Most style guides recommend against coining new forms of operator overloading. That supposed power of idiom is simply too fraught with peril.

Keep this in mind: the argument by analogy to C idioms is broken, because the C idiom is constructed of unambiguous items right there on the page. Comprehending an unfamiliar C idiom just requires parsing the code--an action the reader was already doing. There's no 'secrecy' at all--it just takes a little longer.

Semantics
As noted previously, there are two semantics for a plain C function call. Determining which semantic is in operation is as easy as searching back through the file for the name, and then grepping header files for the name.

Not so for C++. C++ has both run-time indirection and compile-time indirection. In fact, it has a number of flavors of the latter.


   foo(x,y);


a plain C-style function call
a plain C-style indirect function call
a call to a non-virtual method in this class, or any parent class
a call to a virtual method (again defined in any ancestor)
a call to a templated function
a call to a method in a templated class
one of several functions of any of the above types, all with the same name, but different numbers of parameters
one of several functions of any of the above types, all with the same name, the same number of parameters, but different formal parameter types

   foo->bar(x,y)

a plain C-style indirect function call (e.g. bar is a public function pointer)
a call to a non-virtual method in foo's class, or any parent class
a call to a virtual method (again defined in any ancestor of foo)
a call to a method in a templated class
one of several functions of any of the above types, all with the same name, but different numbers of parameters
one of several functions of any of the above types, all with the same name, the same number of parameters, but different formal parameter types
Some of the variants above may not seem like truely distinctive semantics; however, the distinction between run-time and compile-time dispatch is obvious, and the other distinctions are there to call attention to the effort required for someone to locate the implementation of the called function. Any of those cases could turn out to be true, and each is defined differently.

Templates offer the best example of my core complaint. At their heart (ignoring the committee-driven creeping featurism), templates are there to allow you to do something like define a generic hash table class, but specialize it to be implemented "directly" for some specific class, instead of having to pay indirect dispatches at runtime.

However, I've stated previously, I find this approach flawed, because it introduces an entirely new syntax and semantics. I would much prefer if you just defined the hash table as taking some abstract base class, defined your elements to be hashed as deriving from that base class, and then used a magic 'specialize' keyword to 'instantiate the template'. (Of course, personally I'd prefer a Smalltalk-like approach where you didn't need to use abstract base classes at all; the same sort of specialization is nonetheless entirely withint the realm of computability; and Java implementations may attempt to do JIT inlining to achieve the same effect, much as the academic language Self (something of a sequel to Smalltalk) did in the early 1990's.)

Moreover, those lists are far too short, as they don't call attention to the bewildering variety of problems introduced by function name overloading.

At least if all overloaded functions with the same name have different numbers of parameters, the result of the call is unambiguous. A grep for the name will turn up a number of matches, and if the line declaring the function is longer than a single line, some additional effort may need to be expended to figure out just which one. Annoying, but not impossible.

Far worse is the use of multiple names with the same number of parameters. You have to figure out the (compile-time) type of every parameter, exactly, before you can make the right call about which function is called. Go look up through the code to determine the type of any variable used; check in the header file to see what type is returned by this function; try to remember whether * means a dot product or a cross-product of two vectors.

Ok. Now you've got the types.

Go read the definition for how the "best" match for an overloaded function is resolved. I'll still be here. Go ahead.

Set intersection. I don't know about you, but I don't normally do much set intersection when I write function calls.

Ok, let's be fair. You can state it unambigously in English without reference to set intersection: the 'winning' function must have all its parameters "type match" at least as well as all the other candidates, and one of its parameters must "type match" better. (Set aside the rules for "type matching", and the inclusion of user-defined type conversions in them. This rant is already way too long.)

It's easy, in fact, to see how the specified rules underscore human intuition about best match. At least, each rule in isolation does so. I have my doubts about the combination.

Still, I find it a bit uncomfortable. I worry about the compiler's intuition not matching mine. I'd be more comfortable if the compiler only picked out a particular function for me if it was unambiguous; say, because every parameter was a better match for the "winner".

Problem is, that would preclude having, say, all the matching functions sharing, say, a common first element that is the same type. Such functions would always match equally. It's easy to see why C++ uses the rule it does.

The above considerations were based on a programmer who was trying to intentionally leverage function name overloading. What about one who isn't?

Suppose in C I define a function "foobar" in one module, and a define another one with the same name in another module, but with different argument types. In draconian fashion, C will produce a linker error, and force me to rename one or the other.

Is this so bad?

Consider the alternative found in C++: these two functions may be totally unrelated, but through a commonness of the English language (e.g. the same word having two different meanings; consider simply the word 'heap' in the sense of a semi-ordered data structure versus a pool of memory) share an identical name. In C++, name-mangling means those two functions can happily live within the same namespace, and within the same project.

Is this a problem?

What happens if I'm calling foobar() somewhere in my code, and then someone introduces a new #include in my code which now brings the other foobar() into scope? What if I was relying on some automatic type conversions in my call to foobar(), and the new foobar() now matches "better"?

And think about this: is it good that the different functions could come via different semantic mechanisms? So if I grep for "foobar", thinking it is coming from one sort of place, I may miss that a "better match" is being introduced through a different compile-time indirection?

And think about this: is it good that I can add "default arguments" to functions declarations, thus messing up my attempt to cull out possible function calls based on the argument counts not matching?

What a freaking pile.

I don't like the name MOBA either, it's so generic it doesn't even make any sense... like what online game ISN'T that? But alas, that is what they are called, so get over it. Lots of things have stupid names. At least in the case of Smite a lot of people refuse to call it a MOBA because its too different.

Also, how much does your laptop suck? Because so far I haven't found a computer shitty enough to not run Smite, it has very low requirements.

If you want it legit, you will need to unregister Windows 7 from any other computers it's registered to, to be able to activate it legitemately on your new computer. I don't know how, to be onest.

If you wish to have more time than those 30 days, the command promt "slmgr -rearm" will reset the 30 days, up to 3 times excluding the original 30 days, for a maximum of 120 days.
Truck
Yeah, I guess we have used the key too many times or something. I just know after 30 days my windows is going to lock on me, and I know it had told me it was only for upgrading to windows 7 only but we have used it on a clean computer we built before.
Truck
User
Wait, the real question here is... if you've got the disk, why is the key not working? Have you used it before on another computer?
Truck
Hey guys, I know I haven't been able to get on here lately, but I just finished building me a computer. I had a Windows 7 Professional disc, but the key wouldn't work. Anyone here good at getting generated key codes for it, so that it can be genuine?
User
Neither one is "better". Every language is different, and provides different features.

C# is probably going to be easier to make a 2d side scroller, especially since there are some pretty good libraries already written that you can use for game developement (XNA, Axiom, etc). Do realize though, that C# creates .net based programs, and they will only be able run on computer that are running .net framework (windows, and some linux distros). So if you're wanting to go cross platform, forget C#.


C++ is a much more extensive language, and you'll be able to achieve more with it. It also has some really good libraries made for game developement/graphics (Direct3d, OpenGL, etc). C++ will take a lot longer to learn than C#, because it is a more robust language. Now, don't get confused when I say that you'll be able to achieve more with C++... while that is true, you might not NEED to achieve any more than you can with C#. Unless you're gonna be writing a bunch of custom shaders, and using using some advanced physics, C# should get the job done.


To make a long story short... for the job you want to get done now (2d side-scroller), C# should more than suffice for what you need. If you plan on making more complicated games in the future, maybe you want to go ahead and just learn C++... be warned though, this is a huge task to take on, and it will take you several years of dedication to get to the point where you can start making decent games.

As a next question, I dunno. Any requests for a particular area? I know Superjer knows lots.

Hmmm, interesting...


So let's say that a is equal to 2, and b is equal to 5.
a ^= b would set the value of a to 32
b ^= a would set the value of b to 25
a ^= b would set the value of a to some ridiculously long number


I guess I'm not understanding how this would work :/
b would start out with a value of 5, and end up with a value of 25. Then a would start with a value of 2, and end up with a number that probably can't even be stored in a double.


Edit: As far as which kind of questions/problems... idk. Just keep giving more stuff like this, I'm learning from it :D
But before the next question, I'd like to understand this one.

Hi people, I don't know if this forum is dead or not, but I'll post anyways in hope to get an answer. So, I've been struggling with this for some quite time now. I made a map, tested it on my computer (through Files --> Run in VHE) and with HLDS. It worked fine. Then I tried uploading it to my game server but whenever I change to that map the server crashes and needs to be restarted.

So I noticed some errors, which are:

What Is a Bluetooth Stack?

A Bluetooth stack is an application installed on your computer that interacts with your Bluetooth devices. Two Bluetooth stacks are widely in use today:

The Microsoft Bluetooth stack, which comes with Windows XP Service Pack 2
The Widcomm Bluetooth stack
Most Bluetooth adapters use the Widcomm Bluetooth stack driver. Widcomm (acquired by Broadcom, http://www.broadcom.com) licenses its software to most Bluetooth manufacturers. Consequently, the installation, configuration, and use of different Bluetooth devices on Windows have a nearly identical look and feel.
The problem with the Bluetooth stack built into Windows XP SP 2 is that it has limited support for profiles. In particular, it does not support the Headset profile required to connect with Bluetooth headsets, and hence your Bluetooth headsets will not be able to work with your Windows XP PC.

To overcome the limitations in the Windows Bluetooth stack, you can install the Widcomm Bluetooth stack drivers from the manufacturer of your Bluetooth device. You can download the latest drivers and support software from the adapter vendor's web site. Because each vendor customizes the Widcomm software slightly, you should not use drivers from a vendor other than the one that manufactured your Bluetooth adapters.

Computer. It's 146x146 resolution because the game is 480x300. It's pixelated because the game is pixelated. And I'm just drawing the girls first... because I like drawing girls. There's actually a lot less girls than guys. You end up with a party of six in the end, and I don't think more than one of them will ever be female. Possibly two if you have a daughter that grows old enough to fight and has some sort of combat ability.

The game is somewhat realistic in that women are pretty shitty in melee combat. Save one, the only women that are useful in combat have magic abilities, and magic is very rare. Azmagelle's daughter is supernaturally fast and can fight well in melee... but she's the only one.

So, with the building of my new computer, I've been inspired to revisit all the 3d modeling software I've used in the past, and I also now am able to mess around with the Unreal Development Kit.

Because of this, I've inspired myself to start creating a game. And, with me being recently introduced to LoL, I've decided that it'd be pretty fun to make an RTS.

So obviously my first thought was "Well that's easy, I'll just use the Unreal engine, that way I only have to do a bit of scripting and the rest is modeling/animation.". Then I started thinking "Hmmm... wonder if someone else would be interested in doing all the scripting for me...", which then led into "Hmmm... wonder if anyone would be interested in completely making an engine for me...". Which leads me to this truck.

So long story short, would anyone here be interested in doing the programming/scripting side of things on this game? I'm not looking to pay anyone at the moment, but you can damn sure bet that if you make an engine from scratch (or use an existing one you've made... *cough cough* spartor *cough*), you can count on a 50/50 split of whatever profit there ends up being.

That "me" is my stationary computer that doesn't have any internet problems.
When I plug my laptop, using wire, into said switch it doesn't work. It's not the wire's fault, as I tried using the same wire that my stationary computer uses and it didn't work.

Only when my laptop was plugged directly into the router (downstairs) did the internet on it actually work.

Rockbomb said:

Also, how far are we talking here? You said your laptop has wireless, yeah? Is it not a wireless router?

I have 2 computers, hence the "fixing my second computer". One is a stationary without wireless and my crappy one is a laptop with wireless.
I usually use wireless with the laptop but as it's internet broke down I tried with the wire to the switch, which didn't work.

A switch is where you plug in one internet wire as input and you get several outputs. I think that the difference between a switch and a router was that a switch doesn't have it's own IP.
I think that's what it is.

Also, my brother's internet was really slow when it worked, now it doesn't anymore. He's now plugged directly into the router that goes into the wall and it works fine.

My brother just removed everything from his computer (can't remember what it's called) and now can his computer connect to the internet by connecting to the switch which earlier didn't work.

My laptop still can't get internet by wireless or by wire to the switch but it works when it's connected directly to the router.

Okay, my brother has the same problem with his Windows 7 laptop. He has no internet problems when he connects his computer with wire directly to the router(?). When he tried wireless or wire to the switch connected to the router, it doesn't work.

My laptop acts the same.

Wireless doesn't work (I presume) and the laptops can't connect through the switch.

-fast make the compiling faster but its only for test not for final versions or release,
Your computer is fine its from the map itself, something is weird about it and even if its complex it should take this long.

It could end up taking weeks, depending on just how complicated the map is, and how powerful your computer is. I would suggest doing as both Sprinkles and SRAW suggested, and first reduce how complicated your map is, and then compile it with the -fast tag like SRAW said.

I'm starting to think that it will never compile. It has been stuck on "LeafThread" of the compiling process for about 30 minutes now without it saying how much percent done it is. I'm not sure what LeafThread even is. The map is very complex with a lot of small shapes and vertex manipulation. Is there anything I can do to make this run faster or start running at all? Maybe a hlvis command I can add?

Mmk, so you do have a dedicated GPU, and it's not that bad either. And, your HDD is 7200rpm, which is also decent.

At this point I guess I should ask... is there anything that you've tried to run that didn't run well, or couldn't run at all? Or, is there anything specific that you would like to be able to run?

You shouldn't have many problems with your current setup, unless you're trying to run things like Crysis in high-detail or something.


Basically what I'm trying to get at, is that there's not much reason to upgrade your computer, unless you need it to do more than it already does. Don't fix what isn't broken, yah mean?

Engine demos always look impressive since Source, the problem is that games will not look like that. Also probably more important than good graphics are great animations, because no matter how great the game looks, dumb animations make it look like shit.

Well if you look in the background, he's running it on an HP workstation. Idk about Xbox, but the PS3 should be able to handle anything that computer will.

And, if you've ever played any of Kojima's games (Metal Gear Solid series, Zone of the Enders series, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow), you'll know that the animations will be amazing on any game he puts out.

My computer is bad, but I replaced it.
What should I do with the lights? Just delete them all and put light_ environment?
maybe you could cut down on lights, are there Specific areas in the map that lag. what im trying to make you do is cut down on how much things you have in your map.

im assuming its a jail break map so there are alot of rooms and this explains how "hlvis" is taking forever.and also if you have a bad computer then rearranging your map is not going to help.

Kinda janky but perhaps try going back to DHCP and try to connect again. If that works you might be able to do the router-side configuration and then go back to the static IP. Also there may be something in your routybits saying DHCP clients only but I find that unlikely.

Even if I use DHCP settings I can't connect.

If you don't mind, what are you trying to accomplish with port forwarding here?

I'm trying to host a cs server but for some reason my friends receive a Failed to Contact Game Server error when trying to connect. I went online to check it out and we all opened the ports that were listed in the threads I found (UDP 1200 and 27000-27015, TCP 27030-27039), but still couldn't connect, so now I'm trying to port-forward those ports to my IP, as it says in another thread.


I get the feeling you're having the same problem I had when I first started running a CS server... misunderstanding (or, lack of knowledge, as was in my case :P).

You said you are trying to forward the ports to your IP, which I'm going to assume you mean your WAN IP. If that's the case, that's not what needs to be done. You need to forward the ports to the LAN IP of the computer you're running the server from.

Here's a diagram of how things are:
Your friends computer ->His router -> His ISP -> Your ISP -> Your router
Now, your friend is going to send out a request from his computer to connect to your server. Everything is going to be fine up until it hits your router. At that point, the router isn't going to know which computer to send the request to, so it'll either send it to a random one, or not send it at all. So you forward the port to a local IP to tell it which computer to send everything to across said port.
my old computer with my graphics card and 4 gig memory is low on space (45mb left) and i want to know what can i deleat to make more space so i can benefit. my game wants 2gig atleast to run optimal.

no i will not delete;system32,porn

OK, I have a problem. My internet connection isn't working and I have reason to believe my ISP is to blame. Now it might be that the ISP's servers crashed or something, but it's more likely that they blocked us for some reason (it wouldn't be the first time that's happened - last time they did it because a virus on my mom's computer was sending out spam mail or something like that).

Before I call them I'd like to know if me trying to connect with a static IP and using port-forwarding software from http://portforward.com/ could be the reason for such a block (I might have also used a false username/password combination for the router, as I wasn't completely sure about it, it gave no errors though).

Maybe your map is corrupted... or hammer is corrupted... or your computer is broken due to all the PORN AND INDECENT STUFF DOWNLOAD ONTO YOUR COMPUTER 24/7

Anyone have any experience with MSI's laptops? I'm thinking of getting the gt680r.

Honestly, once you get up into that price range, I don't think the brand really matters. I just looked at the specs, and they're pretty nice, I think you would be happy with it.

Is it mandatory that you get a laptop though? Cuz for the same price, you could build a desktop that's ridiculous.

Well, it would be impractical, because I'll need to do a lot of computer work at school, and then I'd have to constantly transfer files and programs from the school's computer to my home desk computer.

Ah, school... then go with the laptop for sure :D
I just figured I'd mention it, cuz for some reason a lot of people will buy a laptop, and then never take it anywhere, so they could have spent the money on an even better desktop :P

But, I think you'll like MSI you mentioned. I looked at some of the reviews, and the one thing most people were complaining about was that the keyboard doesn't light up xD
There were a couple people who said the wireless card on it was kinda weak though, so if you're planning on using wifi a lot, you might wanna look into that.

I had a rough time finding the perfect laptop, I wanted it to fit for watching movies, which is Storage & processor. I wanted to play some games, Minecraft, Starcraft, Portal etc. And I wanted to have a laptop to study on. I browsed alot and found a perfect combination (almost)
The Hewlett Packard DV60000,
I went to a computer store and bought it for Approx. 600$ ( I live in Denmark, in DKK it's 4500,- But it was a sale day and I had a gift card) I went home spended alot of time setting everything up, anti-virus, personal settings, Getting rid of preinstalled shit etc.

I installed all my games and went happy. Until.............


I plugged my gamermouse into the laptop, and I saw that it worked super. Now usually I don't unplug my usb's so I just Shut down the pc. Completely. And went to do some other stuff. I returned and pressed the start up button. All LED lights went on and i could her the fan working. Uh-oh The screen never responded, it remained black. Thats when I went googling. This PC has alot of bugs. HP failed completely it works perfectly when you got it started up, but it has some physical bugs. If you plug a internet-cabel into it, you wont be able to pull it out unless you use a knife etc. to lever it out.

Theres many versions of the DV6, my brother has a thicker more expensive one. And i have the cheapest and thinnest one.

the Dv6 Series is bugged, but good and reasonable.


I haven't checked if theres a latest fix..

I forgot my conclusion but I g2g.

Yes. Indeed. That thing I said. LoL is just ghetto HoN/DotA. It incorporates metagame unlock bullshit that I hate as well.

It's weird how many people think that LoL is just as much like DotA as HoN is. The only thing that could possibly cause that is them simply having never played HoN and probably also never played DotA. Since if they had they'd be all like "WTF is this shit" and go play a real version of the game.

HoN=DotA. I never have enjoyed DotA. I do enjoy LoL.

LoL is similiar to DotA because of it's base (kill creep get money, pay money get stuff, use stuff kill players yadadadada). Then LoL removed the extremely horrible in DotA (Yaaay, 6 second stun with 4 second cooldown!) and made it more player friendly.

DotA players are more used to that so if they leave, they go to HoN which I'm happy about since they're really helpful to newbies. Glad I don't have to play against them.

@Sraw, click spacebar to automatically target your champion.

You can't deny creep, thankfully. In DotA most people play rangers.
You want to know why? Since they can deny so redicolously easy.

You CAN select enemy stuff! In your top left corner there's your champion. To the left of that you can see whatever you've marked.

How bad is your computer?

For test builds, you can do -fast for vis and rad which can speed it up. Or skip them altogether.

Ten years ago it was not uncommon to have to wait 10+ hours for a compile so quit complaining.

How exactly is it you're trying to get Minecraft running? I'm not having any difficulties.

However, you really have to have the proper drivers available (if you have an ATi or nVidia card in there, you can get open-source Intel drivers from... somewhere). Then running minecraft is as simple as running
code
java -cp minecraft.jar net.minecraft.LauncherFrame
I don't even think you'd need to increase the memory available to it.

I had some problems because I have both sun java and some other (GIJ, I believe) installed. So I used something like
code
/home/blah/jre1.0.6_24/bin/java -jar /home/blah/.minecraft/minecraft.jar

It asked me to choose a name, then did nothing else. It didn't freeze my computer, it just left my terminal running some god-knows-what process, I left it for about half an hour, then CTRL+C'd it.

You know there's a 2nd edition of K&R, right?

I saw on wikipedia, yes. But I only have this one and can't be assed to search for an online version.

New problem, I have the function itoa (n, s), which turns an integer into its decimal string representation (so the number 123 becomes a char array with the elements '1', '2', '3', '\0').

C code
itoa (n, ps)
char *ps;
int n;
{
int i = 0, tf = 0, sign;
char *start = ps;

if (n == -n && n != 0) n++, tf++; //!
if ((sign = n) < 0) n = -n;

do {
*ps++ = n % 10 + '0';
} while ((n /= 10) > 0);

if (sign < 0) *ps++ = '-';
if (tf) *start = *start + 1; //!
*ps = '\0';

reverse (start);
}


Notice the lines marked with exclamation marks, those are the ones I added myself (the rest was copied from the book). The Exercise reads:

Quote:
Exercise 3-3. In a 2's complement number representation, our version of itoa does not handle the largest negative number, that is, the value of n equal to -(2^(wordsize-1)). Explain why not. Modify it to print that value correctly, regardless of the machine it runs on.


The problem here is the process by which the computer calculates the negative number: by calculating its binary complement and incrementing it by one. In the case of -(2^(wordsize-1)), this becomes C(10000...)+1, which is 01111...+1, which in turn is again 10000..., so you get the same number.

My solution works in this case but it's rather clumsy. If the number in question ended in a 9, I would have to make *start = '0' and *(start+1)++, and so on until the end of the string. Now obviously, in this particular case this isn't a problem, since 2^n, where n is an integer, can never end with a 9.

Still, is there a better, more general solution to this problem? For example, what happens if I have to implement this into a different function where the above is possible?

Btw, can *start = *start + 1 be written instead as (*start)++ ?

The only thing you can do for that is log in on someone's computer, then make a server with "online=false" set. Beyond that you could just host your own, it's not tough...

Just because someone's good at composing doesn't mean they can make it sound good on a computer. Music making software is more about dodging bugs and tricking the software into doing what you want than actually writing anything. It's unnecessarily difficult.

Also I don't think it's so easy to get a reasonably good musician to play your music. It's almost impossible to get people to listen to something, nevermind learn it and play it.

I don't think it would be very hard to get them to play it if you just paid them... but really, I'm not totally convinced everyone has had the same experiences with terrible audio software that you have. I think computers are a pretty viable option. There's a fair amount of reasonably well composed music that's never touched a real instrument made by random douche bags on the internet.

...there's also an ungodly enormous, steaming mass of terribly composed garbage out there. I don't think either of us really knows if it's awful because of the software or because of the composers, but my money is on the composer.

It might sound OK but production quality makes a huge difference. Don't undervalue it.

There's a reason why all popular music is impeccably produced, even with debatable levels of quality in other categories.

Just because someone's good at composing doesn't mean they can make it sound good on a computer. Music making software is more about dodging bugs and tricking the software into doing what you want than actually writing anything. It's unnecessarily difficult.

Dont spend it all on computer shizz. Nobody really needs a super high quality mouse or keyboard, that's just ridiculous. The standard ones do just fine. Really.

Actually the mouse would save me a ton of time, especially in programs like 3ds max where you have to be clicking different tools every 3 seconds.
I think I might scratch the keyboard for now though, as you're right... not too much of a benefit from it (although it would be a lot better for my back, my laptop sits up pretty high on my desk).

As for the harddrive, I think I also changed my mind on that... Not in taht I don't want to get one, but in that I'm going to go for something different. I found a guy that is selling 72GB 10000rpm 2.5in harddrives on ebay for $30, and for another 30 I can get a portable case with USB3.0... seems like a pretty good deal, and since I'll be working with a lot of HD video and stuff, I think it'll be pretty helpful

You don't need pointers. They are just one way of doing things.

In low level languages, and at the hardware level, pointers are everywhere, though. If you dig down enough, everything on a computer is about memory addresses.

Example use of a pointer:

Let's say you want to efficiently store the current state of the keyboard, and the previous state of the keyboard. In a game or something.

Let's say there's an API call GetKeyboardState( int array[255] ) to which you pass an array, and it fills it with a 0 or 1 at each position depending on whether each key is currently pressed down.

Let's make 2 arrays to hold the current and previous states:

code
int kb_state_0[255];
int kb_state_1[255];


Now let's make 2 pointers:

code
int * current_keyboard_state = kb_state_0;
int * previous_keyboard_state = kb_state_1;


Now everytime we read a new keyboard state, swap where the pointers are pointing, and read in the new data.

code
...
int * temp = previous_keyboard_state;
previous_keyboard_state = current_keyboard_state;
current_keyboard_state = temp;
GetKeyboardState( current_keyboard_state );
...


This is somewhat efficient because you don't actually have to move the whole 255-element arrays at any time. You just switch the pointers.

Hope I didn't screw that up...

So, I should be getting close to $700 back from my grant, and I wanna use about $500 of it to enhance my experience while using my computer (The other 200 or so will be used for gas money to get me to and from school for the semester).
Here's what I was thinking:

Mouse
keyboard]
monitor
external drive (7200rpm)


The drive is essential, as one of my classes is After Effects, and we'll be working with HD video the whole semester. I'm open to other options for the drive (need it to be 7200rpm though), and also suggestion on what else to get instead of the mouse/keyboard/monitor.

It seemed like later attempts made the game more like a bad version of Age of Wonders. But the reduction of features and functionality was the worst part. Going from nine towns to like... five? And some of them didn't even really make sense, like why were the demons and the necromancers shacking up? And why the hell would building one type of unit preclude me from building another? I want options, damnit. Also the whole 2d 3d thing you said because pretty things are important.

Anyway, Minecraft is also a game that you play on a computer.

Obviously he should have written it in QCL. Then instead of overheating your computer it would simply send it into another dimension.

As for your computer, I'd suggest booting into safe mode and saving all your important documents/pictures/etc to an external drive, then restoring your system back to factory condition (you can do this by pressing f11 as your system is booting up).
Just a little update, it works beautifully on the other computer with better specs so it's not a compatibility problem.

..can anyone tell me a cheap way to fix my problem? :)
They are pretty good, only down side is that on Xbox they stopped working with it and only did with the computer version. So it only has like 2 maps for each game mode. Also I haven't played story as much as Havokk he may be able to tell you of it.
A little side note, I finally managed to find an old installation (or whatever the proper noun for this is) of TR 1 from an old computer of mine, and I copied it to a CD, then tried running it on my laptop. It didn't run in Compatibility mode, but I managed to get it to work in DOSBox. The only problem is that it runs at like 3-5 fps.

So, can anyone who knows something about DOSBox tell me if this is a problem that would be solved if I ran it on a better computer (the specs on this one are: Intel Pentium 1.4GHz processor, 768MB RAM, Mobility RADEON 9200 with 32MB VRAM, Windows XP SP2), or if there is any other way to solve it?

i got problems with step 7 of this guide: http://www.superjer.com/learn7.php

if i copy all this in catpee.bat:

Without Steam
@echo off
hlcsg -nowadtextures catpee
hlbsp catpee
hlvis catpee
hlrad catpee
copy catpee.bsp "C:\half-life\cstrike\maps"
cd "C:\half-life"
pause
hl -dev -console -game cstrike +sv_cheats 1 +map catpee

"C:\half-life" may not be the correct location of Half-Life on your computer. Make sure you type the correct location on both the lines where it says that.

With Steam
@echo off
hlcsg -nowadtextures catpee
hlbsp catpee
hlvis catpee
hlrad catpee
copy catpee.bsp "C:\Steam\SteamApps\\counter-strike\cstrike\maps"
pause
"C:\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 10 -dev +sv_cheats 1 +map catpee

"C:\Steam" may not be the correct location of Steam on your computer. Make sure you type the correct location on both the lines where it says that. Also replace with your account name. And if you do not have a "maps" folder, create one.


----------------------------

and i save it and wanna open it it is still a text document and i see the same text again in a notebook, but i have to see : Lot's of confusing stuff will show up in a command window as ZHLT compiles your map.

but that dont work please help meee

I like how your long, annoying title fucked up RB's signature. Oh, and if you can't figure it out yourself GET THE FUCK OFF THE COMPUTER. God, you sound like my mom. :/
Anyone? What did you think about it?

To me this was one of the best games I have every played, it's in the top part of my top single player games list, along with the two CoD MWs, Dragon Age Origins, GTA VC and SA, and also NFS Porsche Unleashed. Yeah, yeah, I have a weird top games list, I don't care about your opinion on that.

Anyway my point is that my opinion on TRA is biased, due to the fact that it's a remake of TR1, which is one of the first games I ever played, and is to this day one of my absolute favourites (unfortunately I can't play it because for some reason it works at like 3 seconds per frame if I run it in DOSBox or in compatibility mode - I haven't tried on my better computer yet, though). So I'm wondering how an unbiased observer without nostalgia sees TRA. I'm guessing as a Tomb Raider rip-off of Prince of Persia?

Running out of RAM might not cause any problems if you have swap space available and thrashing does not occur.

On the other hand, if thrashing does occur (when your computer is spending more time swapping memory than actually doing anything) your computer will become amazingly slow and unusable.

If you run out of RAM and swap, get ready for lots of crashing. Most programs shit themselves when they can't get more memory on demand.

I know on Linux there's the OOM (out-of-memory) process killer, which kills a random process when memory runs out. So that could cause who-knows-what problems, but it might be better than just having no memory.

I'm not sure if Windows does anything special, or just starts saying "NO!" when programs ask for more memory.

When my computer theoretically runs out of RAM (it has a LOT) then absolutely nothing special happens. This is because my HDD is also RAM.

Censorship
By: me

-Censorship
internet, books, road maps, the news and even the bible. It all has one thing in common; you cannot flip a page or look at something that has not been in discussion on “censoring”. The world is in on it, we know about it, we do not like it. So why do we let “them” do this. The examination of censorship in America suggests that censorship protects children but also it violates the 1st amendment. censorship protects children even if the first amendment is contradicted. People protest that the first amendment is what the United States of America is founded on and what makes us free. Other people explain that censorship will corrupt our kids if we do not stop things as things are with violent video games. What I think is that when I go on the internet I want to see the truth, things that I want to see and not lines of black on my texts not a white page that says “your organization has blocked this website”. Simple things such as going to cnn has “adult content” or going to other sites and have them misrepresented as such Foolery. Go to your nearest Safeway get on the internet and go to a website with some violence. The chances are that it will be Censored. The children need to know most of this IS on the internet and on TV. Not all at one time but if we keep them in the dark, children will not know what to do.

-“wanting censorship”
Freedom of speech is one of the most basic of human rights and yet there are some boundaries that need to be drawn with particular respect to sensitive issues. Ways that are common in censorship are enforced including bleeping words, blocking images, false info. Such particular issues can be language that is obscene. Movies, music, and news has most of this and it is censored for the sake of children. The government knows that and so they
do , bleep, block and insert new and “clean” information to them. “Children are our future”
should be the motivational thought when censorship comes to mind in the television companies.
Some reasons to be “for” censorship are for the children. The FCC is a company that is the main
hub of censorship in news, TV, and radio. They depict how they do not want the news to show
violence as much as possible. They cannot have nudity violence without the proper rating for that
movie. They tell troublemaker, rogue, bad robot DreamWorks, thx, pixar, that they cannot have
nudity violence without the proper rating for that movie. They do the same thing with everything
you can think of. There is a “FCC” for every country you can name/ all this is a good thing cause
if our children found out about the nudity and the violence it would corrupt there little minds
there are G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17 that depict what movies will display in there theaters

-Reasons to not want
censorship are the kind of reasons that you want to know some information. I want to Google something about the columbine shooting. I do not want see a clean version of it was all cream and peaches, I would actually want to know the exact details of the town, day, time, how long. Blocking information should be a crime in the united states cause it is one of the things Americans embrace Such things as editing this game called “left for dead 2” the austilalians copy. compared to the usa copy it is cleaner but the hard core generic “shoot dead things” just does not fit with the graphics things as.
No gore: when you shoot a infected you see a small splash of blood, no parts will fly off
No blood splatter: you will not see blood spattering on the screen
No dismemberment: you cannot shoot or melee any limbs, and expect them to fall off
No corpses: as soon the infected hot the ground, the game renders them gone.
No burning: infected will not catch fire.
I expect somebody to say “well the game is cleaner and better with out all that killing and bad intentions“. the game or most things have a intention either to be clean or not. I ask you do you expect a game with one gun to be with good intentions? If you buy a expensive game you expect it to have the most of what the general it is and what you paid for. It would be a waste if it did not have the most gore as possible. What they are doing is denying great ideas that make great things games, books, and television. People who make this violence are not bad people , but creative ones.

-The bad things about censorship
is the over abuse of it. every body has heard of Alice In Wonderland and it is is most definitely not about drug use but over the years people have come to conclusions that it is because of parts of the book such as the one where Alice eats a mushroom. Certain people say that the reason that Alice becomes really tall and then really small in the book is because she is “high on magic mushrooms.” Alice In Wonderland is a great story for kids. It is about a young girl named Alice. Alice herself in a magical place called wonderland. This book was actually banned in China back in 1931 for another reason. Someone did not agree with animals being able to talk the way humans do. They thought that the book was “portraying animals and humans on the same level”
Catcher in the Rye is a book about violence and it makes more sense to ban the Alice in Wonderland. “Catcher in the Rye is the story of teenager Holden Caulfield's turbulent last few days before his Christmas vacation. During these days, Holden leaves Pencey Prep, a boys' school he's been kicked out of, and takes off for a few nights alone in New York City. Holden tells the story from some sort of a mental facility where he's recovering from the stress of the experiences he retells.” This book does have numerous scenes of violence but it is an overall good book. Should students stop leaning about the Second World War because we are afraid to teach them about violence? The answer is no, violence is all around us, and Catcher In the Rye is a healthy way of explaining that to kids. In 1991 Concerned Citizens of Florida challenged Catcher in the Rye. They believed the book was anti-Christian. They did not agree with the profanity, vulgarity, or the references to suicide. The review committee for this book voted that the book should stay in the library.
On September 11, 2001 the world witnessed the worst disaster in the history of North America if not the world since Pearl Harbor. The twin towers of the World Trade Center collapsed due to a terrorist attack on America. This event affected everyone very deeply, but that does not justify talking songs off the air by artists such as Creed, Savage Garden, Led Zeppelin, at one time, hit song Ironic was taken off the airwaves of many radio stations in United States and Canada because the song makes reference to a plane crash. Creed’s hit song, Higher, received the same fate when some angry people heard reference to flying or to be more specific “Can you take me higher?” in the lyrics. This song is about being brought to a place where everything is better and about creating that place here. It does not make sense for people to object to a song with such a deep and spiritual meaning. Both of these songs have no coarse language, sexual or rude remarks, or even any reference to fighting of any sort. It is unbelievable what they do to religions also.

-The good things about censorship are things that protect our children cause The beeps has become increasingly used in our society, so much that whenever we hear it. Every time we hear the beeps, we immediately wonder what word was just removed. Do not tell me you do not ponder it, however quickly, because I am absolutely positive you do. You can not help but wonder what word was just missing in action from that last sentence you just heard! In your head you know what word was It probably goes without saying that we’ve all been conditioned to accept that something naughty has been said when you hear the beep. Censorship can protect out troops it can provide safe for rape victims, relocated people, and most importantly it will keep the moral being of family together.

-In conclusion, censorship in music, TV, maps is wrong in my opinion. Artists in both music and art should be allowed to say/paint whatever they want. That is what our founding fathers based this country upon: freedom. The government is doing an excellent job in making the First Amendment suitable for all. If parents have a problem with it, it is because they did not properly supervise their children.

Have a mini-internet for kids, such that it is accessible to anyone on the Internet, while those on the mini-net cannot access the "real" Internet.

Have a completely separate computer network for children.

Parallel chat network for children and ONLY children.

Internet servers for children that restrict potentially obscene newsgroups.

It's the nature of internet that most simple protections can be defeated and parents should know that!!!

OK be prepared cuz this is alot of problems:

1: Does Cstrike have things like driveable cars and turrets?
2: How do i make water that is transparent, and where you can swim and drown in? Where can i find textures to this/which do i use?
3: How do i add background sounds to my map?
4: how do i make a map edge that has sky on top, and water on the bottom, like in as_oilrig? And how do i make an edge where you fall off, then die after a certain point?
5: How do i make a moving, button activated elevator?

And finally the thing i really need answered, its blocking me from making any maps but the most simple.

I made a map, called it de_bricks.
Bots take the central, obvious way always, but this usually leads to a confrontation in a central chamber without the bomb ever getting planted. So i made a hall from the side of both spawns, that leads to site A. A is connected by a ladder to B, which is right above this. Yet i cannot get bots in any way to take either the ladder or the extra hallways. I know this has probably something to do with waypointing, but only sollution i find is for Source. Again, i have Counter strike 1.6 No Steam, i think this is Counter Strike 1.5. I learned mapping using this tutorial: http://www.superjer.com/learn.php


Also, just a small problem: I start and play counter strike 1.6 no steam. It has a button that says 'change game'. I can switch to half-life, but i can't start any game or so. It just refuses to do anything no matter how many times i click the button, or the game just crashes. No error log, no computer crash, just game quit. Any sollutions/reasons to this?

OK then.

If anyone else is having trouble with this here's what I recommend:

On computer A open a command prompt by running (Windowskey+R) cmd

At the prompt, run ipconfig and look for where it says IP Address or IPv4 Address. This is computer A's local address. Let's say for example it is 192.168.0.143

Go to computer B, open an explorer window and navigate to double-backslash-computer-A's-address. For example \\192.168.0.143

If it doesn't work, try the same thing from computer A to B.

Nothing will show up if you don't share a folder first.

You may be asked to login when you try to connect. You should be able to use your Windows username and password on the target machine.

If you are trying to connect from a Linux computer to Windows, use the smb:// protocol, for example smb://192.168.0.143

Well, RB, the R.A.T 7 is the exact same thing (I think) except with a wire and 40$ cheaper.

Well, it's a double kill for me since I like the wired mouses and keyboards more than the wireless. No problems with batteries, no extra things to hold control off. Batteries and/or a connector to the computer, R.A.T 9 has a charger to keep control over etc.

Alright I'll try that SJ.
But, I don't think that computer has a unique IP... my router uses NAT, which makes all the devices connected to it have the same IP right?

So... basically I got pissed off trying to set up a web server, and decided I'll set up a cs2.6 server instead.
So, I followed this tutorial, and got everything installed. But when I try to run it (the "starting the server" section at the bottom) I get:
Quote:

FATAL ERROR (shutting down): Couldn't allocate dedicated server IP port 27015.



Now, I'm guessing this has something to do with me not setting up the ip part correctly. In my router I have set it up to forward port 27015 (both tcp and udp) to my server computer.
Also, I did a netstat -a, and I don't see anything using port 27015.


Anyone know how to fix this?

im just putting this here so i can copy paste it on another computer hope you dont mind

This map offers a slightly different gameplay because of the blocks they can be used as references.

Heres a list of kewl stuff

Pink Blocks(1) - 150w 16l 36h i made it so 150w is a good length 16l is half of what a player is so it can be used as references and 36h is your height when you crouch theres - 10 pieces

Pink Blocks(2) - 150w 16l 72h same thing except 72 height is your height when your standing - 10 pieces

Purple Blocks(1) - 16w 150l 36h same as pink blocks(1) but different direction - 10 pieces

Purple Blocks(2) - 16w 150l 72h same as pink blocks(2) but different direction - 10 pieces

Blue Blocks - 32w 32l 216h these are cylinders at the height of 3 players so it would take 2 or 3 people to boost to the height of this making it a good reference tool - 9 pieces

Gray Blocks - 150w 150l 150h its a big gray box - 1 piece

Light Green Blocks - 32w 32l 36h its a box that is the size of a crouching player great reference tool for nojump - 27 pieces

Tan Blocks - 32w 150l 18h its a roof piece and 18h is half the height of a crouching player and 32w is the width of a player

Yellow Blocks - 150w 32l 18h same as tan but different direction

Dark Green Blocks - 150w 150l 18h its a roof piece that is purely for putting roofs on tunnel bases but also has the 18h reference

Light Blue Blocks - 32w 32l 18h its a sqaure for treehouse jumps potentially and good reference tool

Red Blocks - 32w 32l 18h same as light blue but its turned so its like a diamond shape

Rainbow Blocks - 32w 32l 18h super mega awesome surprise

I'm using the ZHLT compiler with the .bat as in the site's guide, VHE's is freezing Valve Hammer.

Anyway, I think I fixed the previous ".WAD" error, this is what you do, move the .WADs to the same drive as the one the compiler is on, it should fix it.

Thing is, the compiler is still giving me the "The system cannot find the file specified". This is the problem I'm having trouble with, anyone have any solution to this problem? I'm in desperate need to play my map... I even made a new one, still the same problem, seems the problem is from the compiler or my computer.

Damn it.

Honestly, I'd say that monitors are halvsies these days on VGA and DVI. Maybe in your weird backwards countries with your cultural differences and your dated monitors you might have less DVI.

As far as things like power consumption go I couldn't care less. Your computer is never going to be more than a drop in the bucket compared to what your house is generally up to. Heat is an issue, though. 8 CRTs in one room will turn it into an oven. If you're having a LAN they're pretty much out of the question, barring expensive air conditioning.

@Aaronjer, what I don't like about CRT is that it emitts a bright tone all the time it's turned on. Kinda sucks since it increases my tinnitus.


Okay, you're going to have to explain exactly what you mean here. To be clear, this is in no way an argument that you should use CRTs. Are you talking about a sound or a visual effect here? Bright means you're seeing it, but tone could be either visual or audio... and tinnitus is an ear problem. Are you actually seeing something that causes ringing in your ears, or did you just use a really inappropriate word there?

That was probably a very bad use of word, yeah. The Swedish version of the word would work correctly. My tinnitus is a... Yeah... "High pitched" tone that never stops. Is that better? It's a really great TV screen otherwise but it's really annoying.

@Cloudy, 20$ yardsale screens would be awesome but where I live there's not many yard sales, and the ones that are is just a bunch of old chairs and stuff, atleast 50 years. Otherwise would a 20$ screen be really awesome.

@RockBomb, Nah, thanks. My mom thinks we can get it fixed/get a new one. Otherwise will I probably buy an actual computer screen for like 50-60$ at blocket.se

Just because I wonder, does anyone know what the cord between the screen and the computer is named? Does it have a name?

If its a crt monitor, you need to throw it out the window and get a real monitor.


High end CRTs have better picture quality than LCDs. It's unfortunate that they are so hard to find now. They also don't get dead pixels. They don't have any of that native resolution bullshit, and in fact work with any resolution you throw at them. Unless you need to move it there's really nothing disadvantageous about a CRT.

Quote from comparison:

Quote:
All around, CRT's reproduce color, brightness, and picture clarity better than anything else, which is why they are used as a benchmark for all other monitor types.


So... uh... unless you need portability, LCDs just suck ass in every way. Everyone keeps saying "in a few years LCDs will catch up!" but they never do and I don't think they will. Of course, if you want a REALLY BIG TV as a computer monitor, the LCDs are WAAAY better. CRTs are terrible if they are any larger than 21", for some reason...

seeing that you "pulled the cord" and the screen is "abnormally yellow" probley means that you fucked up your screen.

i had a power surge do that to my screen

Well, the screen wasn't working at the time (It said that it had no input or similiar, even if it worked just fine 10 minutes earlier) and was just completely black. I had to turn the computer off and there was no other way. That I was aware of atleast.

Well, fuck. I changed the wire between the screen and my computer to a new one, hoping it would work better. Guess not. So it's probably the enlarger or my ****card thingy.

Somebody please tell me it's not the ****card because my other screen isn't tinted...

Teh enlargarh is the little thingy I need because my computer/screen is too old/young.

HALP MEH!

One of my screens is yellow tinted. It looks bad 'n' stuff, so can ye help meh? I wanted to show you but a screenshot didn't work. Google didn't help me enough.

Oh, it might be because I mistreated it. It broke before so I had to shut down the computer by pulling out the power wire. I'd be happy for any help that I could get.

You see, Chrome's 'sandbox' is that it runs multiple process and lots of threads. If you knew anything about programming you would realize how hard it is to invoke something from another thread. So basically, you can have a malicious site on one tab, and all your important, confidential information on another tab. The malicious site is not granted access to the information on any other tab, thus you are safe. The same goes for the processes.

The really important thing is the multiple processes (at least on Windows). You can run a process with very restricted access. It's not just about protecting your other tabs either. Sandboxing web pages, scripts and plugins stops malware from infecting your computer as a whole.

Actually, the individual page threads might not need access to files. If you were being really strict you could just have them get data from the internet and display it. Possibly access to some areas of memory so that they could access a cache. But I'm no computer scientist man.

What Aaronjer's saying is that because you are playing on a console your game is significantly crippled. I have no sources on this; I played Fallout 3 very briefly on my computer and have seen my flatmates play it lots on the Xbox. To me it looks pretty much the same but honestly I wouldn't know :)
One disadvantage that is definite and for sure is the is lack of RAM. What is it on the PS3? 256 graphics and 256 RAM? Or is it twice that for each? It's ridiculous, given how cheap memory is nowadays.

Also, mods. Seriously missing out there.

The main problem is that there are no, or at least very few dedicated servers, so you end up with a bunch of people local hosting, and that's bad times.

My computer hates me. That's the main problem for me. I really wanted to play it so I downloaded it with some friends. Then it began!

I tried to run it. My desktops changed for 2 seconds then back, then AS chrashed, without any error. Try multiple times, not working. I googled it and it said I should try to delete a folder in the installation. I did, had to redownload the entire game in steam. It said that some files were missing, well no shit, I removed them.

I reinstalled and thought it might be the same problem I had with Killing Floor, so I made my extra screen useless (still plugged it but all black and not doing anything) and that the problem was because I had dual screens. I started it and got an error. That's atleast easier to google. I restarted my extra screen and got to a steam support site and did the 2 things it told me too, tried again, nothing. Shut down my extra screen again, same problem. Googled some more. nothing.

I shut down my main screen with my extra screen running, was able to start it. Wasn't able to play practise (wanted to learn the controls, after release and such) and it crashed. Was invited to a game by my friend, the server was annoying for my computer to connect to so I got the "25(countdown) seconds left before auto disconnection" for 3 seconds every 30 seconds play time.

I played with a bunch of people who had never played the game before who weren't aware of friendly fire and didn't know how little ammo you have.

Lovely game when it works, though.

Adding to my chain of computer errors, whenever I startup windows, sometimes a messagebox will appear saying "lsass.exe has failed to initalize (0xc0000142). Press ok to close the application)
Then after that I'm left with a black screen and a movable mouse cursor.
However, it seems that sometimes that won't happen and windows will boot properly. So I installed sp3 to see if that will help, and it doesn't, and I checked all over the internet and they said stupid stuff like do window repair or whatever.
So I don't want to reinstall windows, so what can I do?

Well, it's your computer. Wouldn't surprice me.

Google is God:
"do You have a firewall?
There are a few spy programs ( not bugs, not trogans.. SPY PROGRAMS) that use that file to connect to the net. It pops up lookin like internet explorer in firewall permissions.
Generally the spy programs do not show up in your control/alt.delete. They are hidden.

But a firewall must allow it to connect to the net , it will ask. And when you look at the infor box you will see that THAT path is not the right path, for the REAL program.

IF... and I stress IF... this is a spy program they are programmed to be run hidden from Anti virus etc." and then it goes on. Lovely Copy Pasta

I wouldn't be so sure that it is fixed: winlogon is a critical component. I imagine that originally the virus will have infected winlogon.exe and has now backed itself up to another part of the drive. Because if you have deleted all copies of winlogon, your computer won't start :p

I'm definitely going to support OpenGL and basic OS calls. For example, OpenGL does not work on my work computer.

To do this I'm making the gfx modularly replaceable. This also makes it easy to have a D3D option. I don't know if I'll do D3D for McDiddy's but definitely for future SPARToR games that are actually 3D.

OK so my Windows (7) computer is totally hosed up.

IF and when it finally POSTs it can barely boot Windows (sometimes never finishes, sometimes just takes 4 hours) and then it likes to insta-reboot crash about ever 30 minutes.

I couldn't fix it and I hardly wanted to try SC2beta on that so I got crazy and installed Wubi+Wine with the SC2beta patch. Had to install IE6 as well since the SC2beta installer needs IE. (WTF)

And then after updating forever... it works!

Not very fast though until I turned down all the gfx. But hey it makes everything easier to see.

NOT liking how SC2 forces me into a game just to make sure everything works. So there I am trying to learn the UI and set the gfx and windowed vs. fullscreen while some other noob is rolling me. But anyway it looks fun.

Just wish my mobo and Windows didn't suck SOOOOO much.

Learn LC-3 assembly then C/C++, this way you will at least understand basic logic structures, computer memory, pointers, data types, and interrupts before moving into a high level language. Write your first LC-3 program in binary and then start using assembly.

You could learn a high-level language first, but learning how a computer works first would give you a much stronger foundation.

Upon reading only the first paragraph I easily assumed you meant the renderer. Then you starting referring to a second computer and I couldn't be sure of anything anymore!

NAT means "Network Address Translation" and it is a way to get multiple computers on the Internet with just one IP address.

You only get one IP address at your house even if you have multiple computers. But every computer needs its own IP to communicate on the Internet.

With NAT, only your router is connected directly to the Internet. Your computers have to talk through it. In order to keep track of everything, the router assigns ports to each computer in your house every time they need to make a connection.

When a packet comes in from the Internet to your router, it knows which computer to forward it to by the port. Obviously, this means the same port (exposed to the Internet) can't be used by more than one computer on your network.

So in order to run a server behind a NAT'ing router, you need to tell the router that all incoming traffic, for example, into port 27016 needs to be forwarded to your game server computer. Because you are running the game server on port 27016 and that's where people connecting expect to find it.

Hope that wasn't too confusing.

Most routers are crap. I got fed up and bought this D-Link "Gaming Router" which actually has built in port mappings for a lot of games. It's pretty cool.

If you can get into your router it is worth a try to assign the needed ports to your computer and see if you can run the game. I think.

Why not get Ubuntu? Having used a few, it's one of the better. I've got a 9.04 partition on my laptop, I downgraded to fuck around with OpenCL, but will probably got for a 10.04 install at some point.



I jus' don't like the set up.

One good thing about Linux is that any 'admin' actions they prompt you for the password. So even if you leave your computer on and someone gets on it they can't 'really' do anything. Also, there is not really an 'admin' account, its like an invisible-hard-to-use-admin-account.

is it just me and/or my computer or does every other one of down's posts seem like the post color is just a little different.

splatter Mario was once nearly completed in a really dumb way but then superjer's computer crashed and he cried enough tears to flood the house, which only made things worse.

I did have good fun screwing around on one of the betas when I should have been programming in a VB class though.

I've had my GF for 2 years now (practically lives with me) - small white, petite thang, cooks for me, always been good to me.

I go away on holiday for a week, come back and something just doesn't seem right. I asked my Father if he had seen anything happen with my GF and he acts clueless.

So fast forward to 3 weeks later... I'm coming home from work when BAM clear as day, right in my Kitchen I catch my Father red handed with his meat in my GF.

I was pissed, told him to get his meat out of GF and GTFO, needless to say my GF got turned off. I just couldn't get over it and that night kicked my GF to the curb.

Now it's been 2 weeks since the incident and that I've been without my GF and about 10 minutes ago my Father had the audacity to ask my how my GF has been, when he's the damn reason we ain't together no more.

Should I get off the computer and start swinging at him?

OR

Pack my stuff and be on my way.

Here's pics of my GF for you guys as I know you'll ask.

My Windows Vista laptop has this issue for a long time. The problem is that my computer won't update or upload anything. It won't even connect to the iTunes store.

PS: Update as in games.

Usually (in Windows) if a program closes unexpectedly while using the sound card then the sound card will not work for the remainder of the time (until you restart you computer).
think of a computer as a cup, and the internet as a straw (you know those bendy straws) and counter strike is the bend. all people will go on a server if there are no exceptions(eg. password protected, bad server conection, lota lag ect...) really what you explained...there is no such thing sorrey for your inconvenience
Have you tried restarting the computer?

I'll help you compile your map, just upload another copy to MediaFire or another site so that I may download it and compile. I'll upload the .bsp file that results from the compiling process. Once I post a link that takes you to the uploaded .bsp file, you may download that file and place it in your Counter-Strike maps folder. The next time you start the game, your map should be listed. I don't mind compiling the map for you, but that doesn't mean my computer won't crash while trying. Nevertheless; I will attempt to render your map if you can post me a working link. I've read the rest of this discussion and none of the other links worked. So thats why I am asking for a link. With a link I will be able to download the .vmf file and open it in my version of hammer editor. Once I open it in Hammer editor I'll select the "run map" option and when I click that, the map will begin to compile. Hopefully the compile process window won't get the error
"(not responding)" when it reaches the "build face lights" section. I often get that error when I try to compile my own maps and I either have to restart hammer or open the task manager and end the process "vrad.exe". If I fail (which is likely) I'll type up some curse words in notepad and save them. Then, I'll copy and paste those words of curse on this forum and I'll give up.

I'm not amused..i just had to do system recovery again....

When i got home from school my computer came up to a black screen asking what mode to start it up on because something went wrong. Safe mode start up normally etc, but nothing worked and it would keep restarting itself. So i had to restart.

Oh and my sister just got the same virus i did on both her computers(laptop and desktop) (shes in other side of the house) 2 days after i had it. My brother whos up the road got it the day before i did.

1)Nuwaubianism



Nuwaubianism is an umbrella term used to refer to the doctrines and teachings of the followers of Dwight York. The Nuwaubians originated as a Black Muslim group in New York in the 1970s, and have gone through many changes since. Eventually, the group established a headquarters in Putnam County, Georgia in 1993, which they have since abandoned. York is now in prison after having been convicted on money laundering and child molestation charges, but Nuwaubianism endures. York developed Nuwaubianism by drawing on a wide range of sources which include Theosophy-derived New Age movements such as Astara as well as the Rosicrucians, Freemasonry, the Shriners, the Moorish Science Temple of America, the revisionist Christianity & Islam and the Qadiani cult of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the numerology of Rashad Khalifa, and the ancient astronaut theories of Zecharia Sitchin. White people are said in one Nuwaubian myth to have been originally created as a race of killers to serve blacks as a slave army, but this plan went awry. Here is a list of some of the more unusual Nuwaubian beliefs:

1. It is important to bury the afterbirth so that Satan does not use it to make a duplicate of the recently-born child
2. Furthermore, some aborted fetuses survive their abortion to live in the sewers, where they are being gathered and organized to take over the world
3. People were once perfectly symmetrical and ambidextrous, but then a meteorite struck Earth and tilted its axis causing handedness and shifting the heart off-center in the chest
4. Each of us has seven clones living in different parts of the world
5. Women existed for many generations before they invented men through genetic manipulation
6. Homo sapiens is the result of cloning experiments that were done on Mars using Homo erectus
7. Nikola Tesla came from the planet Venus
8. The Illuminati have nurtured a child, Satans son, who was born on 6 June 1966 at the Dakota House on 72nd Street in New York to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis of the Rothschild/Kennedy families. The Pope was present at the birth and performed necromantic ceremonies. The child was raised by former U.S. president Richard Nixon and now lives in Belgium, where it is hooked up bodily to a computer called The Beast 3M or 3666.

The Nuwaubians built a city modelled on Ancient Egyptian buildings in Putnam County, Georgia (pictured above). It has now been demolished.

Ya so i was dreaming last night that i was out side my house with alot of ppl i knew. Maybe around 10-15 ppl. Most ive not really ever seen except maybe a glance. It was snowing at the time, and my ad decided to pullout a big round yellow volleyball. even with no net we started paying volleyball just a free for all

Well i was sucking it up and i realized that ppl started just catching the ball and running around with it before they got tackled. Turning the game into keep away. The guy who got tackled was down still holding it and i ran up toward him watching another guy pick it off of him and run. I jumped into the air and got on his shoulders before he could fully get away.Even with me on his shoulders he was hauling ass.

Trying to grab the ball and hold on the blocked my every move and he tripped sending us both to the ground.I looked up watching the ball rolling. I looked back seeing a girl who was hardly even coverd up for the snow just running for it. I got up and threw snow in the other guys face and grabbed the ball and ran.

She could hardly keep up with me and i ran to the backside ofthe hour were a tree was and a cable anteenna. I passed the big pol and went straight into the tree limbs covering my face with my forearm. I was surprisingly going very fast for my speed, I think this is were i realized his was all a dream. i could even hear the tv goin in the other room of my house. at least thats what i thought.

Anyways, i came flying out of the tree and starting skidding down the hill towards more trees and managed to stop my self and run up the hill and back the other way. I passed up a truck with a fat guy leaning on the front though he didn pay no mind. I ended up back were the game was but no one was there. I turned around back towards the truck and everyone that was playing (10-15 ppl) was lined up staring at me with the death stare.

Iran at them and threw the ball up over them and they all jumped for it. I put my arm up to block the way and i charged through all their feet making the ones i was going through do front flips into the ground. I cam out the other end and the ball coming down just into my reach. Before i could get a grasp on it i was tackled by what seemed like the fat guys son and his friend.

Theytook the ball and an off with it. I decided to get up and go back the other way tpo cut them off. Back through the white tree and big pole i came out seeing them coming atme and i manged to grab the ball as they were in disarray. I cam back up to the trucks and watch the fat guy again say to me" here!" yet he didnt seem enthusiastic idk what drove me to pass it to him but he didnt even catch it and it rolled away and his son and his friend came back up and grabbed it and ran down to 3 threes which was like a triangle.

His friend hid in the middle of it but the fat guys son who was also fat couldnt get in.I ran down and circled around the trees arm in face trying to lock off the limbs and back around the other end of the trees as the fat guy was about to get int and pulled a matrix and in slow motion by jumping and grabbing a tree spinning around and kicked the fat guy in the face. doing so sending the ball in the air.

I then woke up and went straight to my computer to type all this out for you guys. My computer was already on and a McDonalds cup was there....Tv in the other room blurring my hearing I Closed the door and turned on my watching some weird episode of some show as i was thinking on what to type and then, i truly woke up.

To quietness. Computer off and no McDonalds cup.

Also, for everyone else's benefit... Fun fact: when you install Windows 7 on your computer, very often it will assume that your touchpad is an actual physical mouse. This can be problematic because it means it operates like a fucking macbook, except worse, because it's more sensitive. So, as you're typing it will start to think that you've clicked elsewhere on the screen by tapping the pad (even when you have not) and the text will start up anew wherever your cursor was. This is frustrating, to say the least. You'll have to re-install the touchpad back to the factory settings (if compatible) before you can reconfigure it to behave normally. You know, where you click to click.

See, I did this by myself. I was ripping out as much crap as I could from Vista and it now does this, mainly when I hit the pad accidentally with the base of my left thumb. It's very annoying. When I say ripping out crap, I mean uninstalling everything, including drivers I saw as being... superfluous.

As far as screens of death are concerned, this laptop (bought in August) has never done anything bad to me. I call this surprising. OTOH my other, older laptop, when booted into Vista, will crash after roughly twenty minutes. It also bluescreened in the first four hours of my using it. The error is KERNEL_INPAGE_DATA_ERROR, Google is proving useless because it's returning tech-help sites filled with retards that break keyboards by dribbling on them, but it seems I need to reinstall Vista on it. Of course I only have a 64-bit install disk for Vista! Of course!

Yes, that is a uniquely Google problem. "Make a full version of something? Sorry, we've got to get property rights to the moon, brb".

I like the streamlined interface, particularly the tab to search bit which is on par with Firefox's right-hand drop down mini search engines, but my policy with regard to... well, everything is: 1) determine absolute threshold 2) operate at that level. Chrome, having a lower threshold, is more suitable for people like Mikejer, who seems to think it's fun to open up various pages one at a time whenever he logs onto his computer. I would prefer my hundred pages that I cannot possibly remember otherwise (at best, it would be a nuisance, and at worst, catastrophically time wasting) to be mostly preloaded. Chrome would melt if I tried that. It also forces me to sign back into shit, which is tedious, so I'll be going back to Firefox shortly.

:( i cant post my speed test now since im dling something, but the speed is at a constant 100kbps... is that good? i mean this is supposed to be the best isp in malaysia(streamyx), but they insist on capping our dl speeds



100kbps is kinda slow , i got this from a website

A clean computer is key to a faster computer. Run the 3 scans below.


Run a virus scan weekly.

Update and run your Anti-Virus program. Don't have one? You can run a free online scan from CA.
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virus



Run Spybot and SuperAntiSpyware weekly.


Download, update and run Spybot---http://www.safer-networking.org/...... . Don't forget to use the Immunize feature.


Download, update and run SuperAntiSpyware---http://www.snapfiles.com/get/SuperAntiSp




Now to prevent spyware from being installed in the first place....

Download SpywareBlaster---http://majorgeeks.com/download2859.html.
SpywareBlaster doesn't scan and clean for spyware - it prevents it from ever being installed.

It's main features include:
- Prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, adware, browser hijackers, dialers, and other potentially unwanted pests.
- Block spyware/tracking cookies in Internet Explorer and Mozilla/Firefox.
- Restrict the actions of potentially dangerous sites in Internet Explorer.






Now lets clean up your registry.




Run RegScrubXP weekly. Run Cleanup every time you log off.


Download RegScrubXP--http://www.majorgeeks.com/download.php?d

Safely cleans junk out of the Windows 2000/XP system registry. All changes made to the registry are fully restorable to it's original condition. You can make an exclusion list of registry entries that RegScrubXP will not display as problems. You can sift through a list of file extensions, company names, run upon startup programs, Internet Explorer history, and uninstall programs to delete what you think is junk.



Download CleanUp---http://www.stevengould.org/software/clea

Free disk space, make your computer run better/faster and protect your privacy - all in one easy solution. All for free!





Now lets clean up your disk.



Run a Disk Cleanup 2 times a month. Run Disk Defrag. monthly.


Do a Disk Cleanup and Disk Defrag. You can find both of them by following the path below.
Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>Disk Cleanup. Let it do its thing. You can check every box that has something to delete.
Now follow the same path and do a Disk Defrag. Again just let it do its thing.




Now lets tweak your connection.


If your speed is good I would not mess with it by trying to tweak it. If you do tweak once it is done you should not have to do it ever again.


There are many programs out there to do this. I will give you 2 of them.
The first one is TCP Optimizer.

Description: The TCP Optimizer is a free, easy Windows program that provides an intuitive interface for tuning and optimizing your Internet connection. There is no installation required, just download and run.


http://www.download.com/SG-TCP-Optimizer

You can get support for the best way to set it up right from their forum http://forums.speedguide.net/

The second one is Cablenut.

Windows XP tested and approved

CableNut is a tool for optimizing your Internet Connection. We have provided a way to tweak any option you may want to in the adjuster. You can load "CableNut Custom Setting" files that are included with the program to tweak your Internet connection.

http://www.cablenut.com/

Again support is available right from their forum.http://www.broadbandnuts.com/index.php?p




All programs are FREE!




After applying the suggestions above you will have a clean and faster computer. Enjoy.


There is also a site that has many tips for Smartbro.

Even when I comment things out it still doesn't work.
I have to delete all of it to fix it.

Edit ok it has something to do with the FileStream Declaration, I
hard coded it and it works now. But it only does so many characters.

How do I encrypt a file?
When I encrypt a file I get

Ah, um, yes? :p

I'm sure it makes sense. Your code looks extensible as well, for instance, the prime numbers could
be replaced by a more complete list. If you restructure a bit you can remove the goto.


If I restructeireor it a bit it would look like
code
Public Function calcformula() a = INa.Text b = INb.Text c = INc.Text radican = (b * b) - 4 * (a * c) 'lets hope you computer knows oder of operations If radican < 0 Then 'the radican is less than 0 see summary radican = Abs(radican) 'get the absolute value of the radican I = True 'remember to inlcude the I in the final answer End If x1 = (-1 * b) + Sqrt(radican) 'radican should now be positive and not result in 0 x2 = (-1 * b) - Sqrt(radican) 'radican should now be positive and not result in 0 divisor_x1 = 2 * a divisor_x2 = 2 * a remainder = IEEERemainder(x1, divisor_x1) If remainder = 0 Then x1 = x1 / divisor_x1 End If remainder = IEEERemainder(x2, divisor_x2) If remainder = 0 Then x2 = x2 / divisor_x2 End If Return x1 And x2 And divisor_x1 And divisor_x2 End Function


'''<summary>
''' the radican_check is meant to abort getting the square root of the radican
''' beause the radican is less than 0 meaning √(-radican) if you remember radicals
''' then you know that you cannot get the square root of a negative number
''' --this is not equaviliant to -√(radical) that is possible
''' so you need to drop the negative and include an i (i as imaginary number) in front
''' of the radical thus i√(radican) however Visual Basic does not account for that
''' and does not throw an error (as they do when you try to divide by 0)
''' it simply returns 0 (not null or nothing) thus you will get 0/denominator
''' where denominator is the 2*A and 0 is x1 (ie if A=1 B=24 C=144 the end result would be -12/2 because (-1*b) is not inside the √())
''' it is not -24/2 because below that we divide the numerator by the denominator (-24/2 = -12/2)
'''</summary>

That song is Awesome. I'm not big into screamo bands or much of Heavy Metal just cause i dont like much screaming, if its going throughout the hole song. Every now and then is ok.Like before the chorus. but i love the sounds of the instruments. Hell i even like just instrumental songs. Half my music i have on my computer is Final fantasy and other games composed music just for the instrumentals.

I've enjoyed L4D2 considerably, I was at my SuperJer's house playing it on the weekend. Even with terrible teammates like Nezumi, it was still highly enjoyable. My only real problems are with a strong sense of gimmickiness the game gives me at some places, and the vast overpopulation of weaponry. Seriously, L4D didn't have HALF as many guns laying around as L4D2. It's like easy mode or something.

My other problem is that my computer at home overheats and freezes after about 20 minutes of playing it... oh well. Guess I'll have to go to SuperJer's a lot.

You have to purchase the domain name. ICANN (really the U.S. gov) owns all the domain names or at least is the authority on who owns what names.

You can run a website off your own computer as long as you have enough bandwidth, it is always on the Internet, and your ISP is ok with it.

You just need to install a HTTP server (like apache or IIS) and probably a database server (like mySQL or MS SQL Server). Google for help on this stuff. I'd need to write many pages to tell you how to do all this and the info is already out there.


Hmmm, I find it actually quite messed up that anybody can hold the rights to every domain out there, til' you buy it from them. I might have to make a stand againt that one
Anywho, if I gotta purchase the domain, I can purchase hosting with it as a package and pay just about the same. So it looks like I will just have to wait til I get some cash to dink around with.


Just outta curiosity, what did you use to set up these forums? Or did you script all the PHP yourself? I looked at a few, and IP.Board looked like it would be the best (of the few that I looked at). But I can't for the life of me figure out how to extract the images from the theme files they have, so I can customize them and make my own theme.

So I wanna make my own site, which will basically consist of a few different forum sections. I obtained a copy of IP.Board to make the forum structure and whatnot, but I can't configure anything 'til its all up and running online... which brings me to my problem. I don't have the money to pay for a site to be hosted at the moment, but I got to wondering "Why do I have to pay for someone else to host my site? Can't I host it off my own computer?". Which is exactly my question, can I host the site myself, from my own computer? And how would I do that?


I also got to asking myself "Why do I have to pay for a domain name? Its not like that company owns any rights to that name."
So, is there a way of going about using a domain, without purchasing it from someone?
No. Xp Professional.

It worked with my last computer which had worse graphic card.

And yeah with me it also selects some big object behind what I'm trying to select.

Damn... I really don't know what to do...

Well, from own experience, my computer used to crash like twice a year and had to be reset to zero. I did go to alot of casual gamesites though, but viruses were never the cause. I also had to boot my computer like 3 times before it worked, since I always got bluescreens on startup. Some hardware crap. That's the good thing about Macs; although they seem to have weaker hardware, the hardware they have is perfectly synchronized and works together really well.

Of course, if you want to do alot of customizing shizzle and program around your OS and all, a Mac isn't the right thing. It works fine for me though.
Truck

I haven't ever had to fix my current computer with it's current OS. Most problems people have to fix are because they are stupid and go to casual games sites and download suspicious torrents. Not doing those things is all you really have to do to avoid viruses... assuming you aren't running Win98 or IE6 or something.

Oh... also... Macs spend so much time updating themselves that it even puts Firefox to shame. A Mac that SuperJer has actually filled itself up with too many updates and ran out of harddrive space without him ever using the computer for anything memory intensive.

Okay. Here we go:

1. Nobody ever asked an actual question.

2. If somebody did, saying "DDR is crap, get DDR2 or DDR3" doesn't answer the question. They asked what the difference was, not which one is better or which they should get. You didn't even bother to say that there is a speed difference... for all the hypothetical person knew it could be that DDR is really fast but breaks your computer.

I'd say they ARE overpowered, just not incredibly overpowered. The important thing is that they are really fun and take skill to use. Someone who hasn't figured out how to use any of them yet, or who doesn't even know they exist (as the game never informs you about them) has very little if any chance against someone who does. But it seems appropriate that someone who doesn't know what most of the attacks are should probably lose. Once you've at least played against them and know how to counter or dodge them you don't have to use them to be able to win.

So basically in JO if you're a noob like me, you can't win. See, at least in JA I can win against anyone except the guys who can actually play the game and those are rare.

aaronjer said:
If you set the forceregentimer to a really small number everyone could just leave lightning on all day or heal non-stop... that would be extremely stupid. Essentially you're saying there is no playable way to have force powers turned on and use lightsabers.

Err... yeah, pretty much. As I said, I play on no FP servers.

aaronjer said:
When you duel in JO you can't use any non-lightsaber related force powers and you're invincible to outside interference and kick damage, so it doesn't matter where you fight or what the settings are. Very well balanced.

Cool.

aaronjer said:
I have one very important question Mate. Have you played both extensively?

No, I have not. As a matter of fact the only thing I did on JO was reach a room that led to many other rooms and each of them had a different color sign above the doorway in the first level of SP. Then I had to replace my computer due to serious hardware malfunctions and never got around to installing it again.
aaronjer said:
"Hooray! A new Jedi Knight game! Now with 75% less content!" WHY DOES ANYONE PLAY THAT GAME?!

Meh, the single player was fun while it lasted. On jedi master difficulty of course, the other difficulties are way too easy. But it was way too short, I finished it in about 2-3 days on master diff, plus the vs. Jedi fights are too easy compared to the fights against some other enemies. The only tough non-boss fight against a lightsaber user was the second time you fight a Reborn Master (which is right before you come outside to the valley of korriban or whatever that place with all the sith tombs is) because you can't grip-throw him of a ledge. Then again you can completely skip that fight by simply moving to the next level (which is the outside) but I still fought him to at least make that entire level mildly interesting.

I might install JO on the other computer and try out the MP (and maybe SP as well) when I finally manage to get to it, as for the laptop, if JA didn't work properly, JO probably won't either.

I count 14 things that don't need to be running on there. You suck at math.

Running your computer on idle, meaning not doing anything, means you should be running no more than two or three processes that do not start up with a clean windows install. That is, IF you're someone who is bitchy about excess processes. It doesn't really make any real difference most of the time. You, however, specifically pointed out that you don't like extra processes running and then show that you have all KINDS of non-essential bullshit running on there. Software update monitors? And more than one of them?! REALLY?! You think you have any room at all to talk about too many processes?!

system idle process [system counter cpu]
winlogon [login logout procedures]

.:Other:.
cdac11ba [copyright protection?]
gbtray [roxio?]

It's not the map I guess, since I did try to compile a map file that works on the other computer and even that one dident work
User
Tryed it on a third computer now and still got the same problem so dont think its the computer.
User
Yes it does, dont got that problem on my other computer so maby its something wrong with cs or the computer
User
Sounds like your map is huge, or that your computer has very little memory. Either of these correct?
User
I personly don't believe i have room to talk but my opinion is to take peoples advice in remaking the map resizing everything and custom making it the way it should be. I have not taken a look at the map but from what i hear is everything is too big. When i first started mapping i didnt see the scales and now i do. Even though my maps are simpiler then like a normal de_dust2 etc.. if your computer desk are taller then 64 units then there is a problem. you would want your desks to be either 36-44 that is a good size then again its not going to be a nice brush but it will be about the size of a normal schools desk. and if this helps you if you are going to rebuild it players are 64 units tall. use [ to make scale smaller and ] to make scale bigger. scale is in the bottom right corner.

ps. good luck and i hope you finish it.

Not really. Just that IGN apparently shares that person's opinion that an assassin can not and should not be a good character.
But I did go single player on the linux computer with the mod PlugY and am currently playing with your build of trap assassin from the beginning. The bad news is I'm at normal baal right now. The minions of destruction were really hard to kill but otherwise I haven't had problems with anything yet. We'll see how baal will be.
Also I'm a bit underleveled, usually I was about 38-40 here on sp (which is around the level of monsters), now I'm at 32. But it was all so easy I just kept on going through without stopping to level a bit.

Now I have 5 mil gp and I'd sell it on d2jsp but I'd have to first subscribe to RS and for a monthly subscription I'd pay around 8$. Then I would get around 200fg for the RS gold on d2jsp.
So it's not really a good trade.


200fg for countless hours of runescape? sounds like a sad banana. I'll tell you what, i'll give you 500 FG for your runescape gold. I'll send first and if you actually try and give me the runescape gold i will NEVER TALK TO YOU AGAIN. do we have a deal? d2jsp acct plox.

No, as far as I can remember, the entire school routed through one computer, so either that or he came over to my house and did it one time. We had a bunch of people overstaying their welcome as well.

User
The current IPs do suggest that to be true, but I sense you are attempting to alter our perception. I do not believe there was originally more than one IP assigned to either FallingShit or CornJer. It seems highly unlikely that you would both only post from the same school computer and from nowhere else over the period of what may have been several months. It is entirely possible that this is coincidental, but given the evidence I have chosen to believe you are attempting deception.

This also leads me to believe that you care whether or not we know you have multiple accounts and that you likely believe we care whether or not you have multiple accounts. We do not care. The only person I personally know on these boards who doesn't have more than one account (including myself) is Homeslice.

its like 5 large grid squares by 5 large grid squares, but I recently noticed my stand by coming on every hour, maybe that's the problem? cause it usually compiles I guess b4 the "stand by" on my laptop, but I recently added 2 cranes to my map about medium sized cranes, so maybe now it compiles over 1 hour and stand by slows it staggeringly? hanging at 60%. I dunno but I'm gonna take off my stand by option and see if it compiles fully. Wish me luck...
(Stand by is basically computer sleep mode, I'm sure you all know that :P)

It could be that your computer is getting to the 60% mark and running out of RAM, therefore starting to have to use Virtual Memory (which is an area of your HDD and is thus a lot slower).

It's been an exciting nine months since we launched the Google Chrome browser. Already, over 30 million people use it regularly. We designed Google Chrome for people who live on the web searching for information, checking email, catching up on the news, shopping or just staying in touch with friends. However, the operating systems that browsers run on were designed in an era where there was no web. So today, we're announcing a new project that's a natural extension of Google Chrome the Google Chrome Operating System. It's our attempt to re-think what operating systems should be.

Google Chrome OS is an open source, lightweight operating system that will initially be targeted at netbooks. Later this year we will open-source its code, and netbooks running Google Chrome OS will be available for consumers in the second half of 2010. Because we're already talking to partners about the project, and we'll soon be working with the open source community, we wanted to share our vision now so everyone understands what we are trying to achieve.

Speed, simplicity and security are the key aspects of Google Chrome OS. We're designing the OS to be fast and lightweight, to start up and get you onto the web in a few seconds. The user interface is minimal to stay out of your way, and most of the user experience takes place on the web. And as we did for the Google Chrome browser, we are going back to the basics and completely redesigning the underlying security architecture of the OS so that users don't have to deal with viruses, malware and security updates. It should just work.

Google Chrome OS will run on both x86 as well as ARM chips and we are working with multiple OEMs to bring a number of netbooks to market next year. The software architecture is simple Google Chrome running within a new windowing system on top of a Linux kernel. For application developers, the web is the platform. All web-based applications will automatically work and new applications can be written using your favorite web technologies. And of course, these apps will run not only on Google Chrome OS, but on any standards-based browser on Windows, Mac and Linux thereby giving developers the largest user base of any platform.

Google Chrome OS is a new project, separate from Android. Android was designed from the beginning to work across a variety of devices from phones to set-top boxes to netbooks. Google Chrome OS is being created for people who spend most of their time on the web, and is being designed to power computers ranging from small netbooks to full-size desktop systems. While there are areas where Google Chrome OS and Android overlap, we believe choice will drive innovation for the benefit of everyone, including Google.

We hear a lot from our users and their message is clear computers need to get better. People want to get to their email instantly, without wasting time waiting for their computers to boot and browsers to start up. They want their computers to always run as fast as when they first bought them. They want their data to be accessible to them wherever they are and not have to worry about losing their computer or forgetting to back up files. Even more importantly, they don't want to spend hours configuring their computers to work with every new piece of hardware, or have to worry about constant software updates. And any time our users have a better computing experience, Google benefits as well by having happier users who are more likely to spend time on the Internet.

We have a lot of work to do, and we're definitely going to need a lot of help from the open source community to accomplish this vision. We're excited for what's to come and we hope you are too. Stay tuned for more updates in the fall and have a great summer.

Hi!
I made a fun map, most like just jumping, and it lags very. It can't be because it's big, it's a quarter of the full size of the full grid in VHE. I converted fun_allinone to .map, because i was interested how it's made, etc. I saw that it's the max size in VHE. And no lag. How can it be? And how can I reduce the compile time? I made another map, It's small, it's got 8 lights in it(7 lights, 1 light_enviroment). Ok, I started compile, went eat my dinner, ~15 minutes, and when I came back, Leafthread was at 50%... and it did not move... I waited another 5 minutes, and nothing. I don't have so bad computer, so it can't be because it. I don't want to delete the lights, because i need them, there's some kind of "Forest" in it, and that must be dark!
NEED HELP!!!
Thank you!

I had not looked at this before. Oh my god. That is a TERRIBLE guide. It is REALLY, REALLY bad. That guy clearly has NO idea what he's talking about. He's cutting his DPS down like a hyper-active retard in a lumber mill. If you have even 1/4th of a brain you should be able to understand this:

He uses Lightning Sentries, Death Sentries, and Inferno Sentries. He even considers using the blade skills. OH MY GOD. The poor synergies! What has he done?! He specifically says NOT to use Fire Blast, even though it is any respectable trappers permanent left-click attack... what exactly does he do with his left click?! Nothing apparently, I guess he just lays down 5 traps and stands there with his mouth hanging open? Well, that's half the damage of my build already! Honestly, I could pick this apart a LOT more, but I don't think I need to. If you paid any attention at all to my guide you can easily see that this build here does considerably less than half the DPS. It is really bad. If you actually built your character around that guide then delete your character and start the fuck over. That is NOT a how to make a Trapsassin guide, that is some kind of sick joke to torment noobs with.

This guide good enough for a lit mf sorc?

EDIT: I have a jong bong or whatever staff on my hammerdin, now if I create a sorc, then can I somehow transfer it from the hammerdin to the sorc? Like create a game with the hammerdin, stay in it for five minutes, drop the staff, then change the character to the sorc and join the same game? Would that work (I read it somewhere)?

This error is the most shittiest error ever. According to most people it has to do with bad scaled textures / to many entities also with clearly the AllocBlock being full... But i had just added a few guns to my map along with some railings, and a single platform no longer than 20 meters 1/2 a foot thick (in game.).
THEN THIS PIECE OF FUCK ERROR SHOWS UP LIKE WTF. So then i was like ok ill delete all my guns i just made to see if it works. Didn't work. So hen ok well ill delete the railings also... Didn't work. So then i was like wtf... So i deleted the Platform i had made which then made it the exact fucking same as it was before when i tested it (it worked fine then) BUT NOW IT STILL SAYS ALLOC BLOCK FULL! FFS. Like this is rediculous does anyone i mean anyone have any ideas that you think might help / work? BTW this map is about the size of well 3/4 of the inside of cs_assault? its fricken tiny.
This isnt a RAM problem becuase i have 4 gigs of it and its not my memory space 1.5 TB's and i have an intel quad core processor so it isn't my computer.... HELP ME! K

Dude WoW is gay. If you want a game that is challenging andhas better graphics and has a longer free trial get Final fantasy XI

If you get the PC version you can mod it and put nude stuff in there or just make your guy look cooler and shit. And can even change the music.

I do recommend you get a 360 controller for the PC tho it makes it much easier. But you cant use your mic unless you get your friends to use Skype at the same time then you need a computer mic.

360 version= Bigger screen and you just need a USB keyboard. And you can get on the mic in a xbox live party.


BUT! If you dont log out the right way (say your electric goes out) it may corrupt files for either system. It happend to me so much i had to by a new hard drive cause it not only fuckd up my ffxi files but my hard drive as well so i couldnt re download the updates.

Oh I was Rank 6 In Bastok. Ima a shadowlord killer two timer!

Good job, Daveyboy! I'm unsure if I love or hate you. You don't really want either, though. Your possessions, personal appearance and demeanor suggest suburban upper-middle-class youth, in high school or possibly recently matriculated. Mommy bought you all that nice musical equipment, and the camera? Nevermind the computer that integrates it all and enables you to share your 'creations.'

Videoblogging is an interesting juxtaposition of values - the diary or journal, being one of the roots of the modern blog, has an inherent aspect of privacy which stands in stark contrast next to a sort of idiot-savant grindhouse auteurism - "watch me watch me know me love me?!" While I could never do it, I have to respect somebody (pay attention now Davey, because in this case, it's YOU!) for putting themselves out there so much. Keep doing it.

As far as fire sorceress spells go, I'd say that Fireball is the best choice for your main attack, couple that with as much FCR as you can and you will turn into what people call a 'Machine Gun Sorceress'.

FCR = faster cast rate? I may try that...

Also... is there a reason you don't play on Battle.net? Does it not work with your connection or something? Singleplayer is terrible, really, even if you want to play on your own the whole time. Just being on Battle.net means you can at least trade items between your own characters... I mean, you can't even mule items in singleplayer. Pretty lame...

I had a dial-up connection when I started playing diablo 2 and this was my first character.
I did have some characters on battle.net but then I suddenly stopped playing diablo for a long time and they all expired. Like the pudding I kept in my fridge for a month and a half.

I can still trade between my own characters on TCP/IP (I have two computers with diablo). So I just copy a character savegame to the other computer and trade from there. That's how I got a Swordguard Colossus Blade (which requires a pul and a lum rune, both of which I can only get in the Hellforge after destroying Mephisto's soulstone).
I'd try them out if my CS+VHE computer was working. But as it isn't, unfortunately I can't.

pick your poison (I wouldn't recommend traps although they can be deadly if you use them right. I think. But since you won't use them right anyway...).

I went with martial arts but only got as far as 4th act on normal. Then I got bored and stopped playing the assassin. But I liked it while it lasted...

If you want to solo the game, go with a Charge Paladin (max charge, zeal and foh, put some points into salvation, fantacism and redemption). Makes the entire game as easy as your mother.

Alright, look... I just had this dream where I was trying to prove to my boss (the head of some space technology company) that I knew the whereabouts of all the lost works of one Professor Vaughn. He was an elusive scientist, a genius inventor and always on the fringes of the law and known space.

I had actually been to Vaughn's secret underground space laboratory before, and although I was never actually told the location it didn't matter. Apparently everyone already knew where his lab USED to be, they just couldn't figure out where it had gone. I knew that for whatever reason you had to go to a specific set of seemingly unrelated coordinates first and THEN go to where the lab was or it wouldn't be there.

Strangely, my method of travel was just floating freely in space with no sort of protection. I would simply will myself in the direction I wished to go and I would travel there as fast as any space vessel. My boss, an angry looking, short and bald man was inside a company vessel. With him were a few technicians and... SuperJer. SuperJer had also apparently been to Professor Vaughn's secret lab. At least he better have, otherwise he had no reason to be tagging along! After making our way to a wandering planet, nearly impossible to see in the darkness, we turned towards the lab.

The lab was immediately obvious upon arrival. It was a metallic structure made of a cylinder encircled by three rings spaced evenly apart. On the center ring on each side there was a set of guns that were significantly larger than the ship everyone else was travelling in. They turned towards the ship and opened fire. Luckily the shots were slow-moving and easy to dodge... probably some kind of anti-capital ship PURASUMA!!! weapon. While the boss was busy dancing about like a god damn fairy in his space cruiser I floated down to the guns and flipped an extremely conspicuous on/off switch. The guns indeed stopped firing.

We apparently docked somewhere and made our way inside the lab. Everyone was very excited to see what valuable technologies we might acquire in our plundering raid... the lab looked nothing like how I remembered it other than the shape. I had been expecting walls of terminals and machinery, half-finished devices and robots and the occasional extremely dangerous security mechanism. Instead I found an underfurnished living room adjoined to a dining room with one of those fake gas-powered fireplaces. The boss was so wholly unimpressed he decided to go back to his ship and shout for a while. The technicians looked bored and just sat around... but SuperJer and I... we knew better. There had to be some strange trick to finding the actual lab. Our first idea was to check places where the real lab had secret containers. Upon inspection we found all of them. A row of five in the living room and 3 more on the floor between the living room and the dining room. All of them were empty save one. It contained an old paperback book on magic tricks for kids. I was now thoroughly annoyed, but SuperJer quickly scanned the pages for anything of interest. Part of one trick was circled, the part detailed the need to show a decoy while the real trick was hidden from view.

For obvious reasons I jumped back into space to search for the actual lab. I emitted some kind of wide spread pulse from my body in various directions until I saw a distortion in space. I emitted a much stronger pulse towards the distortion and a new structure slowly revealed itself through a dispersing black, inky cloud. The structure was identical to the decoy structure except that it was positively bristling with weaponry. Missile launchers, lasers and machine guns of all sizes were slapped on this thing in no sort of symmetrical fashion. It still had giant PURASUMA cannons as well, although they looked sleeker and more dangerous. I quickly floated in towards the PURASUMA cannons, the various turrets all opened fire. I emitted that pulse again and it caused all forms of fire to hang in place for a couple seconds before continuing on their trajectory, making it a simple matter to avoid them. The same overly conspicuous on/off switch was placed on the cannons, but the "on" and "off" were replaced with an angry smiley face and a happy smiley face. Upon flipping the switch all the external defenses deactivated.

Everyone was now inside the real space lab of Professor Vaughn. I told everyone that the security in the place would only recognize Vaughn and would use lethal force on anyone else who entered. I went out of the airlock and into the first security checkpoint before anyone else. I was armed with a semi-automatic pistol and a combat knife... strangely low-tech given the setting. A very tall (6'9" or so) thin man in a light tan jumpsuit and a motorcycle helmet blocked my path. He had an enormous dog. The dog was at least 5 feet tall, and was a very shaggy looking golden retriever of the same tan color of the man's jumpsuit. The dog also hand an antenna sticking out of it's forehead and a collar that had the name Mary on it. He held out his hand as if to motion that I should not progress, the dog looked completely unmenacing. Without a second thought I shot the man in the knees and then shot the dog's antenna off. The dog still had the same unmenacing look, but it bit down on the man's torso and started shaking him about. He screamed "Mary, noooooo!" but the dog just kepting flailing him about like a rag doll. The stress had caused a lot of hemorrhaging and his organs were spilling out on the floor. I shot the dog in the head and it dropped to the floor motionless. I shot it three more times just to make sure it was dead, and then shot the tall man twice more in the chest. He still wasn't quite dead, but I just left him there. That amounted to all of the security in the lab.

Past the security checkpoint the laboratory waited. It really was full of all the things I had expected, but the whole place was powered down. A single red light blinked at the far end of the lab where it was too dark to see anything. There were drawers you could pull out by the red light with motherboard looking computer parts and many criss-crossing wires. I held up a flashlight and SuperJer and one of the technicians worked on switching them around in some fashion I didn't understand. Eventually the light turned green and power was restored to the lab. We were now able to see that this whole end of the lab was filled with the skeletal remains of people in lab coats. The boss just pointed at them and screamed loudly. He wouldn't stop screaming, he never even took a breath. SuperJer then turned to me and looked somewhat disappointed while he said, "We better get back to the car wash."

Then I woke up.

It's usually better to compile using a batch file as hammer requires way more resources to put it simply.

Oh, well thanks for trying.
And good luck tomorrow =P

The reason why I can't do it, is because of my computer.
It has 256MB RAM so everytime I try to compile it, I get error that I run out of swap files, and the compiling stops.
So...yeah.
Well, my computer is currently successfully pissing me off (I almost set it on fire by accident - my fan stopped working and it overheated...) but I'm compiling it right now. I just hope it'll finish the process without crashing...

Anyway, I forget, why can't you compile it yourself? You don't know how or you actually can't?

EDIT: sorry but my computer crahsed during compile... I'll have to clean it up and try again. But I'm going to bed now, I've had enough of it. I'll try again tomorrow.
If you have the finished compilable version of the game, post it here and I'll try to compile it. But I won't go fixing any errors in the map because it lags my computer like hell if I load your map into VHE.

I have night terrors or something sometime. I usually sleep on my stomach and sometimes I wake up lying on my back with my arms reaching out in the air. My grandpa apparently did some similar things when he was sleeping. He'd put his hands together and slowly move them into the air like he was doing a breaststroke or something and then he'd drop them to either side. My grandma would get kind of pissed about that, but she'd just find another place to sleep. My dad (other side of the family, that was my maternal grandpa) also sometimes does this machine gun thing while he's sleeping, but that's PTSD, so it could be different. I don't know, either way it seems like I'm genetically predisposed to doing something weird when I'm sleeping.

You guys!

I had a dream, or rather three different dreams inside of each other and I don't know exactly if I was awake or not in the intermediary stages. I dreamed that I was in living in a old school hotel with brass handrails on the staircases and elaborate carpeting, but poor lighting and facilities, and that there was this family that was coming in and visiting it for the first time and they were surprised on the level of jaws dropping and having no idea how to express themselves. I kept thinking "dude, it's New York, and this place sucks." I was also helping a classmate get a virus off his computer or something and in between I think I was playing X-men on a Genesis emulator?

When I was dreaming within the dream, it was about witches. I was in some sort of suburban community, not excessively rural, the houses looked like they would have been built within the past five years at the most, but there were witches. These witches were ordinary looking girls who were behaving normally enough, but the issue was in that everyone around them was going mad and would start running down the street and tearing each other apart. People knew what was going on, but since the witches could turn it on and off at their leisure, no one really suspected anything, and they remained quite nonchalant about it.

The first time I ran into the witches, it was in a room that looked like one of the bedrooms at my dad's house. I was following one of the witches around and she decided she didn't like that, so she conjured up some grotesquely obese man who was hiding under the covers of the bed. He wore glasses, was covered in skin lesions, and didn't seem to have any legs, but the strangest thing about him was that whenever he was nearby he would generate this intense, almost unimaginable heat. He kept trying to attack me or creep me out or something, but it didn't work out so well because I kept half waking up from the dream (I don't know if I was waking up into the other dream or if I was actually waking up and just going back to sleep again).

After that, the witches decided they weren't going to bother with me, not that I could easily tell which witch was which (yes I had to do that). I think it's probably because the witches were all really cute and whenever I saw one of them I kept thinking "hey, I'd ask her out if she wasn't trying to kill me" [this has also happens IRL, but I don't know if they're witches]. So they would send the people in the neighborhood on a murderous rampage for no particular reason (they derived no joy from it, and barely seemed to respond to it at all) and I would just wander around with them, seeing what they'd do and watching, and since none of them were trying to kill me, just each other, it didn't really matter.

There was a group of people that seemed to be outside the reach of the main witch I was following, so I tagged along with them for a while, but I noticed that one of the girls in the group (also really pretty) was rather blase about the whole thing and I started to think she was probably a witch too. We headed into another more distant house in the woods and as soon as we got inside, she turned the other people against one another and then pounced on me, but I woke up after that because my alarm was going off. I'm still not quite sure if she was going to tear me or apart or if we were going to have crazy witch sex or something. It could have been both.

So recently ive been studying functions of programs and whatnot during my Computer Studies course and we stumbled upon animation. Which led me to think, "Hey, Ive already made one of those" although short and shitty (Yes, it was short and shitty however made in one day, although i am sure you already know that). So ill fill you in on where i am.

I actually know 100% what this is going to be about but its a secret for now. There's going to be lots of gags, jokes, etc.
Oh i forgot to mention - It will also include narrations.

However, before i begin development someone needs to help me with the following:
- Custom Loader
- Counter Strike Sound database

Downloading Flash CS3 again (New PC) as we speak
No, no. Look. My laptop isn't. My home computer isn't. None of my friends can do it either. Just that computer. And we're on holiday now

If you login from a new computer it will no longer allow you to be logged in stylishly from the previous one, regardless of whether you log in stylishly from the new one or not.
I have Goiceasoft Counter Strike 1.8. It's a lot better than 1.6 but it has a problem. Installation has more then 100 maps. Most of them are from 1.6 and they work. But others need to analyze first so you can add bots. Only on 1 of 60 school computers this process finishes. Doesn't do it on my laptop, doesn't on my home computer, my dad's, my every friend's computer......... It just starts again and again and again... Does 1.6 have this problem? Do I need to download the 1.6 version? None of my maps can be playable until I take it to school, analyze, copy the .nav file from cstrike/maps and then bring it home again. Makes me crazy....

Ok, I'm in the middle of Arizona and I have a connection of exactly 100 kbps (Wildblue). Satellite...

My grandma has a dialup connection of 26.4 kbps. It is slow.

I'm thinking of getting a bla bla bla phone line hardware put in my computer and try to play CS. So tell me, O wise Jer of superness, tell me now.

Oh eDan sorry i forgot about this post well actually the whole thing took about 1.55 seconds (the complete file) and i was kinda weirded out by that even though i just got a brand new computer and it got over clocked at 48000 i still didnt see how it was compiling that fast turns out leaks actually speed up the process? (or cut things out) because there was a leak in my map i didnt bother to fix until after and it takes about 30 seconds for the lighting now 2 minutes total. You got me to think why it was so fast and now i understand leaks are more than just a leak. Thanks eDan

You seem to know much about me and eDan... Do you spy on us? Do you work for the CIA?

After this anonymus suspicion report my team decided to investigate. We managed to get several pictures of a CIA agent who we later learned has the codename "atojams" (on the left in these pictures).






As we see, he has a female partner, whose codename is as of yet unknown, even though we managed to get her picture with hair dyed blond when we hacked into CIA's main computer. Unfortunatelly her codename is unknown even to CIA. This is the photo of her taken by CIA's professionals:


We have however managed to learn how atojams managed to slip a microphone into our anonymus writer's flower pot in the garden.

First he used this advanced spy-watch to locate the flower pot:

Then with it he gassed everyone in the 25 meter radius with a gas that causes a concussion and 24-hour memory loss.

Then he came with a gas mask and quickly inserted the microphone and a tiny camera into the flower pot and left. Here's a photo taken by a security camera:


Now a short break and then we come back with another story.

You obviously are a standard user on Computer. Try some tutorials and stuff to learn how to use PC, then try advanced stuff like mapping and programming. I also have Vista and it's working perfectly since the day I bought it. You just need to know how to use it. Never mind, you're probably just stu.

I say we no longer help this guy. Vista is unintuitive and shit. The day I got Vista it bluescreened four hours in.

Apparently you're not allowed to write in the location where you have your steam folder (C:\Program Files or something). Are you the computer's administrator? If not, the administrator has to allow you to write stuff in that location.


I am the computer admin
Also you have some textures that are too large. While this may not cause problems on your computer, it might cause problems on some people's computers especially on software mode. So if you want your map to be played by other people as well I'd advise you to scale the textures down a bit.

Still, as KD said, post the contents of your bat file.

Large, complicated maps take a long time. You could upgrade your computer to have more memory and a faster processor if you want, that would help.

Reinstall Windows.

Oh no, I can't say that. Ehh try clicking on Steam 'remove all local content' then remove all the stuff in your Steam\steamapps\YerUsername\cstrike\ folder. On the other hand if you have no other Steam gaemz installed you could uninstall Steam, remove all of your Steam folders then reinstall Steam and redownload etc.


I haven't tried reinstall Windows but I tried to reinstall steam and Cs and deleted the hole Half-life folder. But it didnt work.

When you're sure you have it right, save the file and close Notepad. Then double click on the file 'mapname.bat' to run it. Lot's of confusing stuff will show up in a command window as ZHLT compiles your map. When it is done you will see (at the bottom):

So, you might remember my dead laptop keyboard issue from the days of yore. I now bought a USB keyboard which works just fine, but since the old keyboard isn't dead completely and got hurt by effing coffee all over it, "it likes to press buttons randomly". Like, sometimes you can't press R on the USB keyboard, because the broken keyboard "presses" CTRL all the time and this makes "CTRL+R" and opens the run window. And you get random windows popping up from time to time...

Now, my question, can I turn of the "original keyboard" somehow and only use the USB keyboard? Or would it hurt the computer itself if I ripped out all the -now useless- keys? (That would probably not change anything, since the keys (like CTRL) react without pressing, appearently because of the coffee.)

My main beef with Vista is that you have to know how to use a computer in order to use it and it constantly presumes that you do not know how to use a computer.

"Are you sure you want to launch this executable you just double clicked on? It could be dangerous. What about changing your settings?"
"For your sake, I wish it was dangerous."

Oho, I was playing counter-strike during the first public beta. Beat that! Oh, you can't! Because that's as early as it gets, bitch!

...not that I STILL play it or anything.

Besides, that list leaves the assumption that there are people here who play more games than me, which is definitely not true. I'm at a computer or console 95% of my waking time, during probably 90% of that time I'm playing some kind of game. I may ALSO be posting on SJWEB/com.forams, but trust me, I'm pretty much always playing a game or sleeping.

My computer is shit, that's what's wrong.
Wait a sec. how is someone else going to compile the map if it has problems. Problems are not only on your computer.This only if your map has problem.
As I already said in another thread, if you make a map across the whole grid, you'll most likely end up with a hell of a compile time (possibly a few days, depending on your computer) and terrible performance ingame. I'd make it a bit smaller...

Oh and resizing the whole map like that can be dangerous... I think. Because I doubt that hammer snaps all the vertices to the grid when you resize it like that and if it doesn't, that can cause holes in the map or something (as the game will do it in its own way).

36 spawns might be useful if you wanted the players to spawn in different places every round even when having the max amount of players... I guess.

Ok, I forgot you guys don't have "auto-alert" and also have been sick for two days - not being able to even use my computer... I just read again that the zhlt.wad can be added to hammer - but in the C:\zhlt folder ... or added to the other 2 wads IN HAMMER??? If so that may fix the problem.

Yeah, the basic tutorials got me learning the basics in like 2 hours... amazingly clear and well written.

My learning curve was good until the illness (i got the "dizzy flu" and still have it a bit... mayb tomorrow ill b back to normal... )

Thanks for the replies!

EDIT: yeah, placing the zhlt.wad IN hammer did the trick. I used the filter found the CLIP brush and now all I have to do is get the door to activate with a metal sound.

Thanks a million!

Well when you say surface area are you saying i should just add more stuff inside? or just make it even smaller but my computer also
sucks a lot so im not sure i do have a pretty big map but i need to if its gonna be a death run and i see that other people have gigantic maps such as the star_wars maps (massive) this room is maybe 1/2 the size of awp rooftops. but ill try down sizing some more and see if it gets resolved thanks superjer.

also i was trying to make a square brush rotate like a barrel roll in place i tried some different func's but the way i set it up didnt work i guess could someone tell me the func to do it? (the brush is horizontal) i dont understand the xyz stuff with this type of thing.

I am still getting this error i was at the beginning of this post but i can still run the map its just the toxic texture doesnt show up and i'm running constantly all around the map at 3-10 fps. I have tried that link edan sent me i tried everything it said to try (clear out unused files, empty recycling bin, defragged my computer (twice)ran a few scans for viruses got rid of programs and excess games that i didn't need.) but still i get this damn error could this be because my computer is a piece of fecal matter?...lol also i have down sized my map a considerable amount it went from 150000000.00 to 100000000.00 (approx) now after doing all of this ofcourse i make it 20% farther than usual but my map isnt that big maybe because of all the solid entities funcs and triggers? i dont know a simple answer would be nice though


Oh i guess it wasnt the same error this is my error i have been getting here

It sounds like you are running out of memory. Increase the swapfile size or get a RAM upgrade (SRAW said "if you have a good computer", I'm not sure yours falls into this category).

Another problem

Its taking an extremely long time to compile the map ten munites and still only 10% done

some maps take several hours or even more to compile, depending on their size and your computer.
Try a problem check in hammer though (alt+p).
Also which part is taking so long (What does it say above the 10%...20%...30%... line?)

btw LOL I was just going to tell you to make sure you didn't turn the whole map into one brush since that's what I'd done one time and then I saw you'd already found it.

An example: if your computer username is Brolyfreiza and you have steam on D then instead of
copy mapname.bsp "C:\Steam\SteamApps\EMAIL\counter-strike\cstrike\maps
you write
copy mapname.bsp "D:\Steam\SteamApps\Brolyfreiza\counter-strike\cstrike\maps"

If there is no counter-strike folder inside the Steam\SteamApps\Brolyfreiza, then there's probably something wrong with your game... I think.

ICQ sucks! It's probably the most successful Israeli invention (after the disk-on-key) and it SUCKS!!

They force you to upgrade it all the time, and every time you do it installs so much crap on your computer!! It's a shame AOL did such a thing to a great idea.

well I want more than 8 vs 8 in my map.. And max players in the server is set to 18

I said 16 spawn points for each team. Means 32 players in total which is the max number of players on any cs server (unless it's been 'hacked').


Oh sorry! ok.. Does that actually crash the server if 7-8 people join teams though??

I'll put more spawn points, but isn't there maps that has less than 32 spawn points?? or all of them has 32 spawn points?

well no it shouldn't be the reason for the server crash. I just mentioned it.
The only reason I can think of is that your computer (or the computer of whoever is hosting the server) or the connection isn't good enough for so many people at once.
Otherwise I have no idea... I'm not really a pro at this.


Well it's a server hosted by a company and usually held for scrims so yes it does hold 10+ people.. it only does that on my map.. I have a feeling it's the fgd and it's from the gpe entity, but I can't seem to find a good fgd..

I listened to your advice and tried it but apparently my graphic card sucks too badly for me to make a homunculus even though I tried doing it without the computer.
not right now, maybe later today. I have to get to the computer on which I have hammer first.

Open your My Computer and go to search and search for mapname.map (e.g. de_inferno.map).

Your computer isn't really good enough for anything. I'd suggest spending your time trying to make a homunculus instead. Much more rewarding.

I went to the stage when.....


Go back into Hammer and click File->Export to .MAP. Save you map as 'mapname.map' in the folder where you just created 'mapname.bat'. Then close Hammer and go back to the folder where 'mapname.bat' is.

Now right click on 'mapname.bat' and choose Edit. This should cause Notepad to open with nothing in it. Type the following stuff into the document exactly as shown, replacing 'mapname' with whatever name you are actually using:

Without Steam
@echo off
hlcsg -nowadtextures mapname
hlbsp mapname
hlvis mapname
hlrad mapname
copy mapname.bsp "C:\half-life\cstrike\maps"
cd C:\half-life
pause
hl -dev -console -game cstrike +sv_cheats 1 +map mapname

"C:\half-life" may not be the correct location of Half-Life on your computer. Make sure you type the correct location on both the lines where it says that.


When you're sure you have it right, save the file and close Notepad. Then double click on the file 'mapname.bat' to run it. Lot's of confusing stuff will show up in a command window as ZHLT compiles your map. When it is done you will see (at the bottom):

Press any key to continue . . .


But i couldn't get the the "confusing stuff" show up, when i double click it it just go back into the notepad editing bit
plz help me!!!!

Try rebooting in safe mode, then running something like Malwarebytes or a general system scanner in tandem with one of those basic removal programs. Even if it persists, you should get an idea of what it is you're dealing with and where you'd need to go from there.

That helped me when I was trying to remove a trojan on my computer. Aaeojer (I was trying to type aaronjer, i swear) wanted to come over and reformat the whole machine and put his own batch of XP on but I managed to fix it on my own within a few days. I'm stubborn that way.

It takes a considerable amount of technical skill with computers to actually remove a competent virus. If you don't know what you're doing and you can't afford to pay someone who does, your only real option is to reformat as Down Rodeo said. It's entirely possible that it's an incompetent virus, however... and could be removed with little effort just by using the correct program.

stuff/bullshit

What the hell? Where did you find this?

It should say:
If you're on nonsteam:

@echo off
hlcsg -nowadtextures mapname
hlbsp mapname
hlvis mapname
hlrad mapname
copy mapname.bsp "C:\half-life\cstrike\maps"
cd C:\half-life
pause
hl -dev -console -game cstrike +sv_cheats 1 +map mapname


"C:\half-life" may not be the correct location of Half-Life on your computer. Make sure you type the correct location on both the lines where it says that.

or if you're using steam:

@echo off
hlcsg -nowadtextures mapname
hlbsp mapname
hlvis mapname
hlrad mapname
copy mapname.bsp "C:\Steam\SteamApps\EMAIL\counter-strike\cstrike\maps"
pause
"C:\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 10 -dev +sv_cheats 1 +map mapname


"C:\Steam" may not be the correct location of Steam on your computer. Make sure you type the correct location on both the lines where it says that. Also replace "EMAIL" with your account name. And if you do not have a "maps" folder, create one.



IMPORTANT: change mapname into the name of your .map file.

Oh and are you sure this is your bat file not your log or something?

Well, i do... allways done it... but it was an bugg, rebooted computer and it worked
so... I have an ATI Rage 128 PRO card (yes I know it sucks, but unfortunately I can't put another one in unless I buy a new computer - long story). Anyway I recently reinstalled Windows XP Professional on my computer and of course the latest driver for the video card that I had installed was deleted.
Now I went to this site and went under Windows XP Professional/Home -> Legacy (Discontinued) -> Rage 128/Rage 128 PRO, downloaded the driver and tried to install it, but it said that it was not compatible (I'm not sure whether it meant with my windows or with my graphic card).
I hadn't had that problem the previous time I downloaded the driver (before I reinstalled windows).

Does anyone have a solution?

I'm probably never going to get the "leave safe house and save somebody" one... because I never go into the safe house until everyone is already safe or dead.

Oh... and adhesive/havokk. Valve ALSO didn't make L4D. The Turtlerock made the L4D. Valve just bought them.

Oh, and in Versus mode... even when all 4 people gang up the tank usually offs a couple people. Because you as the player can have the intelligence to wait just around the corner for some poor bastard to wander into your loving meat hammers. Tanks also tend to switch targets a lot when they're computer controlled, making them much less dangerous.

Bethesda just released their latest game, Fallout 3, for both PC and PlayStation 3/Xbox 360.

Has anybody played this game? What do you think...?


On a sidenote, Bethesda chose Istvan Pely as the lead artist/technical lead for Fallout 3!

Mr. Pely himself was a wonderful game-maker prior to turning to just computer graphics,he made leading technical contributions in the field. His two games Zero Critical and Symbiocom were also published by Bethesda.

Fallout3 was in development for 4 1/2 years.

is there anyway to get a source like flashlight into cs 1.6?

No. In fact, why not play CS:S? Or even better, play TF2 or L4D? (I likes my abbreviations I do).

OK, grudging explanation... In the original Half-Life engine lights are calculated in a very simple manner (GoldSrc is hardly CryEngine2). The polygons the light falls on are made to reflect a lot of light (really their colour is changed to one close to white, ish). In Source (technically the Episode One incarnation) the light is done differently, I can't remember exactly how. Might be... Umm... Yeah, there's a bit more ambient lighting added in through the use of clever shaders *handwave*. In the Episode Two engine you get dynamic shadows! It's sexy. Which is worrying in zombie games.

Hilariously, in F.E.A.R. the flashlight is just a texture applied to the entire screen, lighting the pixels it falls over. Or at least, that's how it seems to be done. For a game with such good lighting otherwise it's a little disappointing.

help lists all the commands available. There's not a whole lot of fun stuff you can do with Windows... this is why bash wins.

no it just crashes on every computer. no compiler screen.
i don't really care to much about compiling it with hammer. i've been working on many maps and i have 4-5 maps that need to be compiled, but something isn't working. another thing is today i tried to compile maps on 3 different computers and everytime I got the same problem. is it a virus or something. any ideas on why this is happening. i can understand one computer not having enough ram but 3 and last year it compiled perfectly. the only weird thing is over the summer the program shut down weird once and then it never worked right again. i've tried redownloading it but it doesn't work.
if the comiler screen is turned off then how do you turn it back on and how do you turn up the ram. My laptop used to be able to run it and my home computer could to but now they don't. i've tried using the zoners compiler tools,but they say something about a missing log

I'd suggest a GIF image but I don't know if GldSrc supports them.

One way to make the map less likely to crash would be to reduce the number of triggers and make it smaller!

Hell even CS:S runs fantastically on my moderately-decent computer upstairs at full settings, and this is with a quick upgrade (still not received that fucking processor, have just e-mailed about it )

This is brilliant. To cut a fairly long story short my computer (running XP) has once again managed to delete the drivers for the Belkin wireless dongle we have. I mean, how the fuck? I even did System Restore to the 27th, this is before I installed the new graphics card and its software (this is the most major change to have happened in recent times; TF2 looks sexy now, I'm pretty damn happy) yet it still complains despite undeleting everything I spent the last half-hour patiently deleting (specifically several unused programs and some folders on C:\. You know the ones it leaves lying around after it updates? The ones with the silly 32-character-string names? I had to boot into safe mode go on the admin account and change the owner, then delete them.) Of course after all this nonsense with the WiFi it is all installed again and the relevant folders are back! Excellent!

I didn't play it for a week, cause i was grounded..
And after my grounding I went to go play it started up but the menu was a f'ed up.
So turned it off and inserted a game and then started it hoping that it would start up the game, but instead the menu popped up, this time it was all fine so i went to the play game button on the menu and it said eject. I got really pissed off..so I took out the game and turned off the system. And went to play some computer. After an hour I came back and tried to play on it again. And then it just didn't turn on. I checked all the cords they were all plugged in.

Once a pawn a time, Jig Saw was on the Interwets and he done got a virus!

The virus re-ordered his filesystem and put oyster sauce on his keyboard so now matter how smart Jig Saw tried to sound it come out dumb and stinky.

But Jig Saw had a plan. If he could get the community behind it, he and the others could create a story so powerful and emotionally draining, it could kill the virus.

So Jig Saw went to the SuperJer Forum and put his letters and punctuation in a box and clicked "Hope."

Unfortunatly they refuse to help him.

Being So Bitterly Rejected he loses all hope and is about to give up.Then he got an Idea ...mabye if he could get a conversation going that was interesting and unquie there might still be a chance!


The next few minutes Jrkookid start getting the story on and he said this firetruck is a waste of time! but Jig Saw knew that he left the refrigerator freezer open and now he is about to catch a cold! and yet Jig Saw refuses to give up!

Barely able to sit up on Jigsaw goes endlessly typing. Hoping that mabye somehow he just might be able to reliquish the virus once and for all,But the virus seems to have a mind of its own.It throws pop-up and irrefusable offers but some how jigsaw manages to on!

And yet Jig Saw just happen to notice that there was a McDonalds right across the street! But when he enters the door he accidently got hit in the head with a soccer ball! And his memory has been lost! O NOEZ!!!! Then God knew that the only way for Jig Saw was to get back his memory and defeat the virus was to once again call in Havokk Edge , Jrkookid , Edan , Down Rodeo's help forming the SUPER AWESOME HEROIC BLAZEST IMMORTAL GALACTIC CONQUEST TEAM!!!!


Somehow Jigsaw finds his way home he explores it for awhile.Looking around he starts to remember a lil bit,but nothing of his quest to destroy the virus.Eventually he stumbles into the computer room and sees the computer.He gets on and pulls up the internet.Somehow Superjer.com was his homepage and Everything returned...HE REMEMBERED EVERYTHING,BUT before he could start back he suddenly just Blacked Out....

An hour later Jig Saw woke up.He saw a man with a purple furry suit and a cane. Then the man said

I am Master Pimp Havokk. I am here to help you!
They went to a limo and Havokk said. Lets go to Dakookid's House. Jig Saw's memory was coming back slightly. Moments later they arrived to a mansion with a highly advanced security system. A voice says

Then a door appears out of no where.


Havokk n Jig Saw enters through the door. Jig Saw a familiar face. He said. Hey there Jig Saw its me Jrkookid , a Spartan-II warrior from the distant future. Come with me to the Arsenal. There lies a section which has a red headband, a red suit, Some boots and a longsword. The encryption said "Vincent Valentine". Jig Saw puts on the armor and his entire memory comes back to him! The virus is no ordinary virus! It is an evil spirit which is trapped in his computer! The spirit's true form is very devastating. Jrkookid , Havokk , Edan , Down Rodeo and Jig Saw fought in a great war with this monster for hundreds of years!!! And now Jig Saw said " Lets Finish the Fight! "

So they suited up a walked up o the giant computer.Jigsaw went to the keyboard and typed something on the keyboard and pressed ENTER.then they were forcfully sucked into the computer.After they all arrived they started to thnk of thier next move.So they uploaded a cmpfire ad tent and sat around it.they though sinc it had been such a long day they would rest and continue tomarrow.As the sun sat they sat around the fire catching up with thier friens they hadnt seen in awhile.

The day final came for the final battle.for the battle had been brought to them.As they were all leaving the tent a army of small virus lined the horizon.Havokk lifted up his sword and gave a battle cry :"CRY HAVOKK!"everyones but Jig saw charged in with bullets and blades as Jigsaw stared down his most thoughtful enemy.The Virus itself.It stood on a hilltop on a crotch rocket and charged down at Jig Saw.

The battle took outside the computer and into another dimension where the great war was held. Havokk killed about 107 soldiers already I , Dakookid , Killed bout 112 soldiers with my sniper rifle while Jig Saw had a sword battle with "Supremus Omegas" AKA the virus. Our army was decreasing by 5% day after day. About 5 days later we called in a 1 Hour worth of Air STrikes to cover us while we are retreating. Now we must setup a battle plan!

so we upload an undergrond hideout and another fire.while resting Havokk gives Jigsaw his guns.He tells him that he left them at the camp be4 the fight and to not forget them next time.Jigsaw takes them shines them and loads them.He points one at Havokk and shoots him in the foot to release all the anger that he built up that day so he wouldnt go off.Then he puts them in his holister and goes off to bed

He wakes up. And sees everyone standing there.
Naked.
AND THEN EVERYONE HAD SEX. LOTS AND LOTS OF SEX. BUTT SEX, STRAPON SEX, EVEN ORAL SEX (zomg)
And then everyone instantly died from implosion, due to an overexposure to System of a Down.

But then suddenly System of a Down broke up, and aliens decide to take over the world.
Only a few ppl survive, but SRAW leads the human resistance.
This is better known as the 6hour war and half life 2

Once a pawn a time, Jig Saw was on the Interwets and he done got a virus!

The virus re-ordered his filesystem and put oyster sauce on his keyboard so now matter how smart Jig Saw tried to sound it come out dumb and stinky.

But Jig Saw had a plan. If he could get the community behind it, he and the others could create a story so powerful and emotionally draining, it could kill the virus.

So Jig Saw went to the SuperJer Forum and put his letters and punctuation in a box and clicked "Hope."

Unfortunatly they refuse to help him.

Being So Bitterly Rejected he loses all hope and is about to give up.Then he got an Idea ...mabye if he could get a conversation going that was interesting and unquie there might still be a chance!


The next few minutes Jrkookid start getting the story on and he said this firetruck is a waste of time! but Jig Saw knew that he left the refrigerator freezer open and now he is about to catch a cold! and yet Jig Saw refuses to give up!

Barely able to sit up on Jigsaw goes endlessly typing. Hoping that mabye somehow he just might be able to reliquish the virus once and for all,But the virus seems to have a mind of its own.It throws pop-up and irrefusable offers but some how jigsaw manages to on!

And yet Jig Saw just happen to notice that there was a McDonalds right across the street! But when he enters the door he accidently got hit in the head with a soccer ball! And his memory has been lost! O NOEZ!!!! Then God knew that the only way for Jig Saw was to get back his memory and defeat the virus was to once again call in Havokk Edge , Jrkookid , Edan , Down Rodeo's help forming the SUPER AWESOME HEROIC BLAZEST IMMORTAL GALACTIC CONQUEST TEAM!!!!


Somehow Jigsaw finds his way home he explores it for awhile.Looking around he starts to remember a lil bit,but nothing of his quest to destroy the virus.Eventually he stumbles into the computer room and sees the computer.He gets on and pulls up the internet.Somehow Superjer.com was his homepage and Everything returned...HE REMEMBERED EVERYTHING,BUT before he could start back he suddenly just Blacked Out....

An hour later Jig Saw woke up.He saw a man with a purple furry suit and a cane. Then the man said
Quote:
I am Master Pimp Havokk. I am here to help you!
They went to a limo and Havokk said. Lets go to Dakookid's House. Jig Saw's memory was coming back slightly. Moments later they arrived to a mansion with a highly advanced security system. A voice says

Havokk says

Then a door appears out of no where.


Havokk n Jig Saw enters through the door. Jig Saw a familiar face. He said. Hey there Jig Saw its me Jrkookid , a Spartan-II warrior from the distant future. Come with me to the Arsenal. There lies a section which has a red headband, a red suit, Some boots and a longsword. The encryption said "Vincent Valentine". Jig Saw puts on the armor and his entire memory comes back to him! The virus is no ordinary virus! It is an evil spirit which is trapped in his computer! The spirit's true form is very devastating. Jrkookid , Havokk , Edan , Down Rodeo and Jig Saw fought in a great war with this monster for hundreds of years!!! And now Jig Saw said " Lets Finish the Fight! "

So they suited up a walked up o the giant computer.Jigsaw went to the keyboard and typed something on the keyboard and pressed ENTER.then they were forcfully sucked into the computer.After they all arrived they started to thnk of thier next move.So they uploaded a cmpfire ad tent and sat around it.they though sinc it had been such a long day they would rest and continue tomarrow.As the sun sat they sat around the fire catching up with thier friens they hadnt seen in awhile.

The day final came for the final battle.for the battle had been brought to them.As they were all leaving the tent a army of small virus lined the horizon.Havokk lifted up his sword and gave a battle cry :"CRY HAVOKK!"everyones but Jig saw charged in with bullets and blades as Jigsaw stared down his most thoughtful enemy.The Virus itself.It stood on a hilltop on a crotch rocket and charged down at Jig Saw.

The battle took outside the computer and into another dimension where the great war was held. Havokk killed about 107 soldiers already I , Dakookid , Killed bout 112 soldiers with my sniper rifle while Jig Saw had a sword battle with "Supremus Omegas" AKA the virus. Our army was decreasing by 5% day after day. About 5 days later we called in a 1 Hour worth of Air STrikes to cover us while we are retreating. Now we must setup a battle plan!

so we upload an undergrond hideout and another fire.while resting Havokk gives Jigsaw his guns.He tells him that he left them at the camp be4 the fight and to not forget them next time.Jigsaw takes them shines them and loads them.He points one at Havokk and shoots him in the foot to release all the anger that he built up that day so he wouldnt go off.Then he puts them in his holister and goes off to bed

Once a pawn a time, Jig Saw was on the Interwets and he done got a virus!

The virus re-ordered his filesystem and put oyster sauce on his keyboard so now matter how smart Jig Saw tried to sound it come out dumb and stinky.

But Jig Saw had a plan. If he could get the community behind it, he and the others could create a story so powerful and emotionally draining, it could kill the virus.

So Jig Saw went to the SuperJer Forum and put his letters and punctuation in a box and clicked "Hope."

Unfortunatly they refuse to help him.

Being So Bitterly Rejected he loses all hope and is about to give up.Then he got an Idea ...mabye if he could get a conversation going that was interesting and unquie there might still be a chance!


The next few minutes Jrkookid start getting the story on and he said this firetruck is a waste of time! but Jig Saw knew that he left the refrigerator freezer open and now he is about to catch a cold! and yet Jig Saw refuses to give up!

Barely able to sit up on Jigsaw goes endlessly typing. Hoping that mabye somehow he just might be able to reliquish the virus once and for all,But the virus seems to have a mind of its own.It throws pop-up and irrefusable offers but some how jigsaw manages to on!

And yet Jig Saw just happen to notice that there was a McDonalds right across the street! But when he enters the door he accidently got hit in the head with a soccer ball! And his memory has been lost! O NOEZ!!!! Then God knew that the only way for Jig Saw was to get back his memory and defeat the virus was to once again call in Havokk Edge , Jrkookid , Edan , Down Rodeo's help forming the SUPER AWESOME HEROIC BLAZEST IMMORTAL GALACTIC CONQUEST TEAM!!!!


Somehow Jigsaw finds his way home he explores it for awhile.Looking around he starts to remember a lil bit,but nothing of his quest to destroy the virus.Eventually he stumbles into the computer room and sees the computer.He gets on and pulls up the internet.Somehow Superjer.com was his homepage and Everything returned...HE REMEMBERED EVERYTHING,BUT before he could start back he suddenly just Blacked Out....

An hour later Jig Saw woke up.He saw a man with a purple furry suit and a cane. Then the man said

Our package just got here last week from China with these really cool CS figures from www.oh_wow_oh_gosh.com that I bought for my son. He is only 8 and I am starting to think that the computer game is a little too violent for him but the toys are kinda cute and harmless. Does anyone know if these characters have names? You can see them at this page http://www.omg_i_r_dumb.com/ unless they moved them by the time you read this. I have heard some people call this game half life, is there a difference?

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE
Give us more details. I personally can't even download the map because I don't have Hammer on my computer.

Just tell us what the problem is. Is it a compiling error? Trouble making the map?

That's like asking a Unix user to go

The swapfile size can be increased. Only do this if you know what you are doing. Sounds stupid but I don't want the blame if everything about your computer breaks.

Right click on your main drive, properties, advanced (I think) then there should be options to change the size. As it happens I can't check right now.

Thing is this will be a really slow compile if you do that. You should consider buying RAM (again if you know what you are doing).

ehhh... i increased the swapfile size but it still doesnt work... and ive got 1GB RAM

I would like you to notice the time.The time is off by 10 seconds.Now if i was really fakerjer why would i set my self up exactly like this?same letters same words.why would i if i was really trying to hide it?

So now i wonder.what about YOU!?You also have another account do you not?Plus you was there.You also have two browsers.

By the time and your typing skills.That seems about right.That you are fakerjer and you copied me in that moment.

which again i say why the hell would i set my self up like that?
I'm not that dumb either.so whats your excuse.You have nothing against it.

Go get a free Linux. It can't possibly be worse than 98. I'm surprised you can even get on here long enough to post with a 98 computer. 98 has no security and no support... it's pretty much just broken at this point.

SOGRURR said:
So how do I get the free CD that it shows...??

Download the CD image you want. I recommend Ubuntu 8.04 desktop edition but have a look around. KDE (Kubuntu) is a bit more Windows-like and is rather sexy. I'm considering swapping to it.

When you've downloaded the ISO (this could take a long time) use your favourite CD burning software to burn it to a blank CD.

Your computer makes a copy, you stick it in the tray then close any windows that pop up then restart. It should then boot from the CD. If it doesn't, tell me.

To get back to Windows use the quit command, when it's shutting down it will eject the CD and you can boot up into Windows when you restart. Any problems at any stage just post here and I should be able to give you an hand.

(If it doesn't seem to boot from the CD try pressing F2 as it starts. Works for my PC ^^)

(This will not install Ubuntu, consider it a trial.)

Thats why internet was born.


I beg to differ.

Prior to the widespread inter-networking that led to the Internet, most communication networks were limited by their nature to only allow communications between the stations on the network, and the prevalent computer networking method was based on the central mainframe method. In the 1960s, computer researchers, Levi C. Finch and Robert W. Taylor pioneered calls for a joined-up global network to address interoperability problems. Concurrently, several research programs began to research principles of networking between separate physical networks, and this led to the development of Packet switching. These included Donald Davies (NPL), Paul Baran (RAND Corporation), and Leonard Kleinrock's MIT and UCLA research programs.

This led to the development of several packet switched networking solutions in the late 1960s and 1970s, including ARPANET, and X.25. Additionally, public access and hobbyist networking systems grew in popularity, including UUCP. They were however still disjointed separate networks, served only by limited gateways between networks. This led to the application of packet switching to develop a protocol for inter-networking, where multiple different networks could be joined together into a super-framework of networks. By defining a simple common network system, the Internet protocol suite, the concept of the network could be separated from its physical implementation. This spread of inter-network began to form into the idea of a global inter-network that would be called 'The Internet', and this began to quickly spread as existing networks were converted to become compatible with this. This spread quickly across the advanced telecommunication networks of the western world, and then began to penetrate into the rest of the world as it became the de-facto international standard and global network. However, the disparity of growth led to a digital divide that is still a concern today.

Following commercialisation and introduction of privately run Internet Service Providers in the 1980s, and its expansion into popular use in the 1990s, the Internet has had a drastic impact on culture and commerce. This includes the rise of near instant communication by e-mail, text based discussion forums, the World Wide Web. Investor speculation in new markets provided by these innovations would also lead to the inflation and collapse of the Dot-com bubble, a major market collapse. But despite this, growth of the Internet continued, and still does.

Okay, I'm planning to submit a map to fpsbanana. Ive never submitted anything before but plan to submit a map. However, i have a few questions befour i do that. This is the 2nd map i've ever made, so dont be too harsh on me. I think its a pretty big improvement from my 1st (a single room, 2 lights, 2 spawn points, no buy zone, no weapons, nothing).

1. mkay, so i'ved pretty much made the map. Ive added some entities, i have 18 spawn points (thats all i could fit), lights, no leaks. It runs nice and good. But so far, i've tested it out and it works just fine. (its fy by the way). Since i've never made a map before, i dont know how it would turn out. Do i need to add the game player entity that gives everyone knives? Im not realy sure. Same for glocks/usp's.

2. i've got this farfecthed idea that i dont know if it will work. I want to assign every spawn point a pistol right? Except for one thing. I want to make it a game of luck. of course out of my 9 spawn points for each side, 8 people will get a usp/glock, but i want 1 person to get a deagle. How would i go about doing this? (im not sure if i want to do this for this map, but possibly for a later map)

3. Okay, let's say i've completed the map and all of this stuff. Ive got the map set up on hammer, i've put it in a zhlt folder and tested it out. Where do i go from there, to submitting it on fpsbanana? I'm not a computer expert, so if you guys would be so kind as to tell me what to do including all the archive stuff and everything.

4. And the noobiest question of all. Im sorry guys, this is embarassing, but how do you take screen shots in the game? I always thought it was alt+print screen, but i never knew where those shots went. If it is, i would like to know where those screen shots are located on your computer.

I would appreciate your answers as soon as possible, as I would like to share this map with a few of my clan mates. And our server is shutting down very soon. I want this to get up, be able to be downloaded, and put on our mirror server and stuff, so i can just show it off.

p.s. my map name will be fy_backyardmaze. Im not sure if this name already exists. If it does, would any of you be so kind to tell me. Here are some pictures of my map btw. (theres a secret area taht contains armor, an awp, m4, ak, and an HE. Theres another secret area which is a buy room. But you'll need some teamwork for that one, if you know what i mean.

Core (important) dll files are generally stuck in that folder you mentioned. However, as I found out recently when trying to get my computer to recognise an iPod Nano (yes it is kinda crap but look at it, it's so pretty!) sometimes they are missing. I'd recommend that you go download the file from somewhere but that is such a bad idea it is still funny (but not very). So if you do get a new PC, that problem should disappear! Also, but TF2, and basically every Valve game.

If you have 5$ and Chuck Norris has 5$, Chuck has more money than you.

There is no Ctrl button on Chuck Norris' computer. Chuck Norris is always in control.

Chuck Norris can divide by zero.

No. It doesn't work... I know what he's going through, but on my computer it resets every time I open Hammer. There are no "4 views" to resize, you only have one view.

LPNA is not real maths. It's computer maths. It upsets me that I have to do it.

The other maths I did wasn't so bad. All in all I have covered:
Matrices, complex numbers, differentiation, integration, vectors & 3D geometry, differential equations (linear, first and second order), some basic methods of proof, convergence of sequences and series both geometric and arithmetic, moduli, congruence and some stuff on group theory that was really interesting but I can't remember.

I'm sure there's a bit more... Bearing in mind this is like the last 2-3 years of maths. Not one semester or anything silly.
User
You people are retarded. The answer to this question is very simple:

Wait.

That's all you can do. Unless you are obsessive and weird you will eventually not care anymore. For me it takes an average of about 2-3 days, but I'm a freaking asshole, so it'd probably take about 30 times longer for a normal person.

I actually avoid girls like the plague! They eat away at your time/money/real friendships like some kind of super-locust. I've learned my lesson and make sure I at least don't even know their last name if I'm gonna get nekkid with 'em. My personal security measures actually go much further than that. I tend to not even look at or talk to girls at all, because I really, REALLY don't want to end up in a relationship ever again. I love my computer more than I could ever love a girl, but once those darn pheromones and instincts kick in my judgment clouds...

So I could easily charge 45 bucks a fix, and people would still hire? Hot damn! Easy money right there. One question though: I have a CD from gateway which formats the hard drive and reinstalls XP. Would that work on other computers as well? I think it worked on my old ass sony, but I stopped before it fully loaded cause someone said they needed to get stuff off the computer, and it would have formatted the whole drive.


I just wrote a really long post about many things involving fixing computers, but it just got deleted for no reason so here's the short version.

No. Wrong. Download a default OEM copy of windows XP Home and Pro from a torrent (make SURE it already has SP2, big timer saver). Use this if the activation bitches at you and won't work right.

http://superjer.com/atojer/wpakill.rar

The activation bitches with perfectly legit copies of Windows XP so you will need it a lot. It's just broken. DO NOT CALL MICROSOFT TO ACTIVATE. Big mistake.

Here's a few more quick pointers:

1. Do not work with Vista. Ever. Still make sure you know the locations of things like the control panel and network settings for the day when Vista stops having "BSOD for no reason" type problems and can actually be reliably fixed.

2. Do not install using a pirated key even if they ask you to. No FCKGWs for you.

3. If they have an OS older then Windows XP suggest an upgrade and warn them of the dangers of using older OSs (viruses, security, compatibility.) Only reinstall an old OS if they ask you to.

4. Only suggest a free copy of Linux if their OS cannot be reinstalled and they don't want to buy XP. This will only happen if they lost their key or were using a pirated copy of XP.

5. Tell them how to use an operating system if they switch.

6. Make sure to save all of their information. This commonly includes the painstaking process of backing up all of their shitty Outlook information. Not fun, but that'll make 'em mad if you wiped their address book.

I had some very detailed explanations of many things before. But, oh well.

Would that work on other computers as well? I think it worked on my old ass sony, but I stopped before it fully loaded cause someone said they needed to get stuff off the computer, and it would have formatted the whole drive.

I'm assuming that a phone book entry would work well too?

How much does it cost for a classified entry or a phone book entry?
User
I agree with SuperJer completely. Except that big companies charge like $75 and hour, so you can even get away with charging like $35-40 an hour and people will still think it's cheap. You do miss out on all the really poor customers though, who would only get their computer fixed if it was going to be like $50.

Here's another hint. Most people have the same problem with their computers. That their computer is a virus-laden, unprotected and poorly set-up piece of shit. This means the remedy for most people is to copy their important information onto a flash drive and format their computer. Make sure they have an OS disc or a CD-Key for one before doing this... you can use an OEM copy of Windows XP in most cases as long as they have a legit key. Also take note of drivers and such, it's best to get the model and manufacturer of their computer (easy to get them to read the number on the front on the phone) before you even show up so that you end up finding out that the drivers are unavailable after you format. This is assuming that they have a computer made by Dell or something, but everyone with computer problems does.

Then all ya gotta do is reinstall (windows can take 4 hours to install on it's own for a shitty computer... try not to factor all of that into the price since you aren't doing anything, I've even left to do another job while it was formatting before.) everything, slap on a replacement for their crappy Norton like Spybot and of COURSE make sure windows is fully updated/set up to receive updates.

You still get other more basic problems, like "My text size in IE changed! HALP!" or the venerable "How the crap do you set up a router?!"

Try to make sure you know how to do all of these things, but even if you don't and can figure it out while you're there, just don't charge them for the time you spent learning things.

I should also mention that people tend to listen to what you say, most people know NOTHING about computers and for some unknown reason try their best to keep it that way. This means you get free reign of suggestions on them, and as long as you always get them to "OK" everything (which most people do automatically because you're the computer guy) you can change their system to whatever would actually be best for them. I should warn you though, trying to switch people to Linux typically has very bad results.
User
A classified ad in the paper is good if you can afford it.

Word of mouth is huge, too. Give what little customers you have a biz card and they will refer their friends. Everyone has friends with computer problems.

For pricing (if you are good) offer your services for $50-$100 or FREE if you can't fix it. A lot of people get turned off other companies because they'll charge you for time even if they don't fix anything.

I used to do this too, and people were always really happy to hear "no pay if no fix" and when I did fix it (always) they'd usually offer to pay extra because they're so happy.
User
I was applying for geek squad, untill I realized that I absolutely hate working for the man. I like BEING the man much better.

So what I was thinking, was that I would kinda do the same thing aaronjer was doing, start a computer fix-it thing, put my cell in the phone book and on craigslist (whatever that is) and what not, and go around fixing computers for about 25 bucks a pop. Just as a summer "job".

It seems like a good idea to me, but I'd like some input on this, like what price, what other ways do I advertise, etc. Just so that I could figure out how to do this.

If you feel confident enough to change the size of your swap then do so. Just a warning though, it is an operation which could do nasty things to your computer should you not be careful about what you're doing. 340 MB of RAM isn't really enough, I think.

When I say change the size, I mean increase.
User
You can make an infinite amount of congruent pyramids, where all thier apexes are at the same spot, and their bases are touching. You will end up with a sphere-like-something.

The smaller the triangles = the more it'll look like a sphere = the longer it will take to compile = crashed computer. Take that into acount...
Description: The program failed to allocate a block of memory. Likely causes are (in order of likeliness) :

* do not compile thru WC/Hammer F9 "running" - this hogs RAM. Instead use a front end or batch file to organize your compiling;
* the partition holding the swapfile is full (clean out your hard drive, empty trash, clear out unused files, purge your temp files folders and internet browsers temp files.);
* swapfile size is smaller than required (let swapfile be dynamicly allocated, do not set it too small yourself.);
* memory fragmentation (defrag your hard drive);
* heap corruption (reboot and try again. If you have old RAM, make sure it is seated well. check for viruses!).
* on at least one occasion this was caused by a corrupt prefab.
* on at least one occasion this was solved by removing a skybox and so making the level smaller.

Does that mean my computer is to slow? lol... yeah i know my computer is slow! 400$ labtop

Sounds like a nice computer. Are these the latest drivers? You could try installing an older set to see if the new ones have broken it (though I don't reckon that's likely).

He can't because he doesn't know your steam username, i.e. the name that you use to log onto steam when it starts. All your game files are located in this directory, see, so you need to tell your computer where to find them (for example mine would (maybe) be like "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Down Rodeo\cstrike\maps")

OK, here are a few things:

You could try particpating in the current beta that is running for the new (shinier? I dunno) SDK that will be out sometime. Post if you don't know how.

Also, do you have any of the Orange box games installed? If not that could be causing problems. If that is the case try adding the the launch option -engine ep1, this might help. Maybe.

And finally it could just be that it doesn't like your computer. It seems to run OK on my laptop but given the massive number of different hardware configurations it might be something as simple (and as difficult to fx) as that. Try posting on the SDK forums, there's a link from http://developer.valvesoftware.com/

For the love of god and all that is holy!

PLEASE post a general overview of what you are planning for the game before making update posts! We don't know what the update is applying to so we have no idea what it does!

You know, like the kind of thing you see on the back of computer game box? Here's an example:

Side-scrolling platformer.
Real-time combat.
2D graphics.
RPG-style leveling system.
Single and multiplayer modes.


See? That was really short! It took my fingers like 10 seconds to write it! The ONLY meaningful information you've given so far was in the update about character sprites. The update itself meant nothing, because we have no context to put it in... but at least we can ASSUME the game is 2D. (although there is still no way to be sure as you could be referring to character portraits or something.)

Hello, One day I encountered a computer problem and had to get my comp fixed by a guy. He took it to his shop and supposedly "backed up my files", fixed it and sent it back. I went through My Documents (where ZHLT was berfore) and there was only my music, my pictures, and my recieved files. Now I cannot find ZHLT, so I dont have my map that ive been working on for a long time. Is this map possibly somewhere else?

btw, I went through my program files, and most of the other stuff like GCFScape and Hammer were there.

You need to disable extension hiding in Windows.

All you have to do is click Tools -> Folder Options on the menu bar of an open folder. Then click the View tab on the window that pops up.

It's basically saying your computer is dying a low-memory death. This is generally because Windows eats up most of your "swapfile" (an area of memory where programs are kept (kinda) when they are not in RAM). If you know your way around windows, and know how to fiddle with its important settings without blowing it up (computer explosion is number one cause of death around technofools) then you could try to alter its size. I wouldn't recommend that though.

If you add the -chop command to the bat file then that should make things a bit easier. Try -chop 128 (this might work but equivalently I might have got the up-and-down scaling wrong. I think the default is 64 though.)

Yes, Python is interpreted but it's pretty fast for all that. If speed was really an issue supposedly Lua is the fastest around. You probably wouldn't need assembler, though it can be used in Garry's Mod I think (random aside).

Well, if you knew some machine code and had all the ascii binary values memorized, then techically you could create an executeable, by typing the words manually into notepad in ascii format (Cause 1 ascii character = 1 byte). I'm not entirely sure how long X86 machine code is in bytes, so you might have to do some binary aritmatic.
Also, you need the character map out, to place binary values of text as well. IE: 96 = 'z' = 00110010 in binary. The null character, which might be something in machine code (although machine code is chinese to me), would not have a displayable character, but might be a box kinda thing in notepad, like: 0 = '[]" = 00000000 in binary. Except the brackets would look like one character.

It would be really fucking hard to do, but possible, with a degree in computer science? Yes.

I havent posted for a while cause i have a virus, and now im using ma old computer with only 56k modem and so i wont be logging in for a while... so by for maybe a month?
another note I have his steam and counterstrike installed on my computer ( with steam ) should I copy my steam folder from progrma files and put it on a cd and give it to him?
Ah I HAVE A HUGE PROBLEM... Like the title says.

Normally I make maps everyday on my NON steam CS.
Yesterday I came over my friends house and I tried to make a map for him.
Keep in mind : His computer is an HP ( laptop ). It is running windows Vista. Specs :
dual core processor 3.2 Ghz, and I believe 1 Gig of ram.

Well anyway I made a map. ( how he wanted it ) and normally when I compile maps I do it through the non-steam. This time the path I believe was the following : programs files --> STEAM --> STEAMAPPS --> his name --> Counter-srike --> Cstrike --> Maps .

==================================================================

With Steam

@echo off
hlcsg -nowadtextures mapname
hlbsp mapname
hlvis mapname
hlrad mapname
copy mapname.bsp "C:\Steam\SteamApps\EMAIL\counter-strike\cstrike\maps"
pause
"C:\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 10 -dev +sv_cheats 1 +map mapname

==================================================================

Well around the :

pause
"C:\Steam\Steam.exe''

I only replaced the : [C:\steam]not the: \Steam.exe]

Now when we tried running Steam it updates but then disappears.
We tried to reinstall and repair it nothing works, now it give some kind of error like ''this feature cannot be accesed''.

==================================================================

Did I screw his computer?

What happened was that I tried a thousand different ways to change the partitioning of my NTFS C:/ drive that came with the prebuild gateway, on windows itself, so that I could install linux, but instead I ended up grabbing this loose drive I had revolving around and sticking it in as a slave. I made like 4 diffrent partitions of various sizes on the slave, but when I tried to partition the C:/ drive, it wanted to erase it. As we all know, we can't live WITHOUT windows (goddamn microsoft ), so that was a big no-no. As far as I can tell, there isint much way to repartition a hard drive without completely wrecking it first, although I have seen some software that allows you to dynamically partition hard drives, but A) I'm not sure that it'll keep the information, and B) it costs moneys. Plus I think you need to format your hard drive to install it ANYWAY, which kind of defeats the purpose.

@Soop
But your my hero superjer...

Anyway, probablly should have gone there in the first place, but since this is like my main forum (no joke), yeah. Ethernet IS a posibility, its just a total pain in the ass due to it (the computer) being way back in an almost completely inaccessible corner of my basement. Anyway, I'll try burning it to a CD, but I'm not entirely sure that all it needs is the drivers. Is there some kind of commands I can enter to find out the type of x implementation I have? (IE: What version of GNOME/XFCE/whatever?)
yeah, im gonna leave getting linux to when i get a new computer.
User
...And even though that the .ISO file has the word "Xfce" in it, it boots up into the bash shell then is all like FAIL. It tells me that X can't start cause "no screens detected" or something. I didn't install any drivers or anything, so it might be that I don't have the drivers for my Nvidia 8500 video card working.
This is Debian Linux btw. Now, I don't have a clue how to use bash, and the online doesn't work because my desktop uses a wireless card and linux didn't like it for some reason.
So my question would be: How do I get the interface setup on the machine? What commands would I have to put into bash to run it? Would I have to burn debian packages to a CD then load them onto the computer? What would the commands be to do that?

The solution lies in destroying your uncooperative computer. I have many memories of a 6-year-old Dell chugging away... fruitlessly.
I suppose if you were only wanting a look at the map geometry etc rather than the specific textures applied you could replace all the textures with like the defaults...
User
yea, I tried compiling my map and it took a long time, made my computer verrrryyyy slow, and in the end didnt wok because it "paused" and never continued.

Should i make my map smaller?
User
dang im missing out on the fun cuz my steam account got hacked and my computer cant handle games like that
User
lol.. Well look how big of a map it is, how come its not messed? also: will it decrease lag if there a skybox instead of regular block block

Changed (sry) I mean how come its not laggy and there is so much room, or is there the same amount of room that I have but I dont realize it. anyways I think that isnt it the persons computer thats hosting it that will determine if its laggy or not
User
Unfortunately, we had server issues at Party #3 today. My hosting company (aplus.net) had about an hour network outage, right as the party was supposed to start.

That wasn't all.

Let me explain.

I started working on the gameserver to get GunGame working at 9AM. I had 3 hours. First, Counter-Strike stopped working. Something about a corrupted metadata file. Steam Forums said this means no more Counter-Strike until you re-install Windows. So I dug up my Vista computer and continued. I had to uninstall CS Respawn because it was causing the game crash. Then adhesive joined and we were testing it out when Vista BSOD'd. So I dug up my ol' XP computer, installed CS, and kept trying. Then, at 11:50AM or so, the server facility went offline.

AAAARRRGGGGHHH!!

Anyway, it finally came back online at about 1PM and a few people showed up. It wasn't quite configured correctly but it was fun.

Here's the results:

awp_city2


de_inferno


fy_pool_day


de_verso


adhesive and Djuice27 (Krak` or whatever) each won twice and get 132 points.

Molkman gets 31 points for showing up. Was anybody else there? I don't recognize the names.

That could be a computer problem OR a map problem but it's definitely not a mapname.txt problem.
idk sounds like a computer problem more to me than a map problem.
Na I didn't misspell it in fact I just did it again and nothing showed up and did not let me play the map, and the picture froze.
I could not do anything, no console, and could not go to windows. had to restart computer.

i started up steam at like 12:15...it didnt actually open untill 12:30. then, it said there was an update for steam, and that it had to restart.
it didnt restart until 12:45, and then it wouldnt open half-life, so i had to restart my computer.
i got in the game at like 12:55.

Unfortunately it still requires the use of a wired controller and the horrible XFPS to circumvent X360's peripheral security. It works by interpreting mouse + keyboard movements from a computer, translating it with a micro controller to ps/2, and then sending it to the XFPS.

You know... the how powerful your computer is and how spyware-free your computer is and how completely optimized your hardware and software is aren't the only factors.

There is one last very important factor: Does the software LIKE the hardware?

Software and hardware (especially drivers for video cards...) can have little faults that make some games not work correctly with certain hardware no matter what you do. For example, my computer contains lots of very fast things in it like a 8800 GTS... and Halo 2 runs like shit. Halo 2 simply does not like my 8800 GTS, and until nVidia comes out with drivers it likes there isn't a damn thing I can do about it. You may be experiencing a similar problem. Look up your hardware and see if anyone is talking about RCT3 having problems with it. Sometimes there is a fix... usually not.
ok sorry to bring back an old topic but i am in need of a new computer and wanting to build one myself (I know a fair bit about this kind of stuff)

so, superjer/anyone else, do you know a good detailed tutorial online about how to build a good computer?

I'm assuming your talking about fps lag, not connection lag, but either way,

Try these
-update graphics drivers
-turn graphics down
-exit out of programs running at the same time (though this doesn't seem to be an issue
-check the computer so its not overheating (not sure if this is an issue or not)
-lower the resolution of the game
-defrag hard drive
-make sure nothing else is sucking up bandwith
-get better connection
-get a new graphics card

just off the top of my head and in no particular order

I. LOVE. CDS. And think of myself as quite the Audiophile. Now, I know some folks are merely casual listeners of this art, so this particular rant is for my fellow music lovers.

What irks me about CDs are the following

Number one
Those fucking idiotic stickers they put on the spine of CDs! These things are annoying. You rip them off only to have some sticky residue left on your case which quickly collects all sorts of dirt, and grime, and for some reason, cat hairfrom a cat you dont OWN. Its annoying.

Number two Digipaks. These are CDs whose actual case is a flimsy piece of cardboard with printed graphics on it.
Well, whats wrong with that?
Well, for one, the whole case--which is also the album art--is now easily susceptible to all sorts of wear and tear.
Well, were saving the environment by using biodegradable packaging! BULLSHIT.
Paper is cheaper than plastic. Thats why they manufacture them.

Number Three Security tags that are not only inside the CD case, but actually stuck on the artwork itself. Then, when you try to remove it, your fucking CD artwork is either warped or ripped, and is now completely RUINED. This needs to be OUTLAWED. Put a fucking security tag on a blank piece of paper and stick it inside the booklet!
SIMPLE!
STOP RUINING MY ALBUM ARTWORK!

Number four!
Now I know this pisses off just about everyone
COPYRIGHT PROTECTION.
You usually find out a disk has copyright protection when you put it in your disk drive and your whole fucking computer FREEZES. PERMANENTLY. BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!
ANNOYING.

And then the record companies wonder why no one is buying CDs anymore. No one is buying them because they completely took the fun out of owning CDs! If you want to increase sales, stop fucking with the packaging, get rid of those top spine stickers and those idiotic security tags, AND the copyright crap that fucks up your computer
And more importantly, sign some good fucking bands! No one is gonna buy CDs from bands that SUCK!

Dont make me go back to vinyl!

Does the computer get very hot while you play RCT3? Some hardware will run slower when it gets hot so it can cool down.

Have you checked for spyware and viruses? And with what programs? In SAFE mode?

What are the hardware requirements of the game compared to your computer?

You can probably find a guide on Google. I've never used one, though. All the parts should come with directions, anyway. You just have to install them in the right (convenient) order.

Building a PC really isn't that hard. Here's my quick and dirty guide:

SuperJer's Quick And Dirty PC Building Guide

Prepare: When handling PC parts, you do not want to shock anything with static electricity. I always take off my socks and shoes so I won't build up static. Before touching any part, touch something metal and grounded, just to be safe.
Clear a work area on a table or the floor to build stuff. Most parts come with lots of little screws and junk. Keep them near the original part -- I like to use plastic cups.
Also keep all the documents handy. Each part almost always comes with picture instructions on how to install it. I learned how to build PCs just from these diagrams and messing around.

1. Inspect the case and figure out what unscrews and what comes apart. Not everything needs to be taken apart here, and before you continue, put it back together except for the side panels.

2. Install the motherboard into the case.
There will be a lot more screw holes in the case than on the motherboard (to fit different sizes/forms). Make sure the motherboard lines up with the back of the case so that the ports are accessible (USB, printer, network, etc). You may need to remove the stock plate in the case covering the ports as it might not match your board.
If the screw holes on the case under the motherboard are not raised, you need to screw spacers in first. Spacers come with the case. Then screw in the motherboard on top of these. You should screw in the motherboard with the low-topped rounded screws that came with the case.

If you drop a screw ever GET IT OUT OF THE COMPUTER. Loose screws can cause electrical shorts when you turn it on. Hard to reach screws may require a screw-grabber tool.

3. Install the power supply.
The power supply fits so that the power cable plug-in is on the back of your computer. Usually there will be big ol' case screws to hold it in. This part is easy except for one thing -- the power cables coming out of the power supply tend to get in the way. Tape them down if you have to.

4. Install the CPU.
BE VARY CAREFUL with the CPU. Do not bend the pins. Don't touch the pins. Handle it by the sides only.
Find the cpu socket on the motherboard (square with lots of pin holes) and release the latch next to it. The CPU should easily plop right into the holes, pins down. Then lock it in with the latch. Easy.

5. Install the CPU cooler.
Every CPU REQUIRES a cooling mechanism (or it will BURN UP). This is usually the hardest thing to install. It can be difficult to figure out how to attach the cooler to the CPU/Motherboard. Check the directions that came with the cooling unit.
YOU MUST apply thermal paste between the CPU and cooling unit. Some CPU's come with the paste pre-applied under a sticker (peel that off!). If not, you need to apply it yourself. You only need a pea-sized blob, not more. Apply it directly to the top of the CPU. Do not get the CPU or cooler dirty where they make contact. No fingerprints etc. If it gets dirty, clean it off with alcohol and cotton swabs and start over.
Once the thermal paste is on, clamp the cooler on top. It is designed to lock on EXTREMELY tight.
If any paste oozes out (you used too much) then wipe it up with cotton swabs/alcohol.

6. Plug in CPU cooler fan.
There should be a tiny jack labeled "CPU Fan" where you can plug in the power for the CPU cooler fan.

7. Install the RAM.
Easy, it just snaps in. Check the motherboard instructions for the best slot configuration. Some configs are faster.

8. Plug in the case bits.
The case has a power button, reset button, indicator lights, and probably a speaker. These need to be plugged into the motherboard. It's usually along the very lower edge of the motherboard.
The plugs are annoyingly tiny, and all the pins are grouped up next to each other. Refer to the motherboard manual for which pins do what. The plugs themselves should all be labelled stuff like "PWR" for power, "PWR LED" for the power indicator light, etc.

9. Hook up USB/Firewire/Sound ports.
If your case has ports like these on the front, you should hook them up to your motherboard. Refer to the book again. Everything should be labelled too. Don't mix up USB and firewire! The ports are the same shape -- so be careful!
If you're not going to use any of the ports (firewire, front sound) then don't plug them in. It's one less thing to have to troubleshoot.

10. Install the Video card.
Put it in whatever slot it matches, closest to the CPU. The back of the video card will be visible on the back of the case. You will probably have to remove a placeholder panel from the back of the case first.

11. Install hard drive(s).
These usually fit in the lower/front of the case under the CD drive bays. Just screw them into the case. Some cool cases work like this: you screw "slides" onto the sides of the hard drive, and then it slides into your case and locks.
If you have a SATA drive, connect it to your motherboard with a SATA conenctor. It's usually red and black. The jacks are little "L" shapes for SATA.
If not SATA, hook it up with an IDE/SCSI cable. These are wide, flat ribbon-like cables. The cables should NOT have a TWIST built into it. Those are for the floppy drive ONLY.

12. Install CD/DVD drive(s).
These install similarly to the hard drives.
These connect to the motherboard with the wide, flat ribbon-like cable (IDE/SCSI). The cables should NOT have a TWIST built into it. Those are for the floppy drive ONLY.

13. Floppy drive?
If you have a floppy drive, it installs similarly to the CD/DVD drive(s). Connect it to the motherboard with the wide, flat ribbon with a TWIST in it.

14. Additional PCI cards?
If you have additional PCI cards, you can install them now. You can also install these later after making sure the rest of the computer works.

15. Hook up motherboard power.
The big-ass power cable coming out of your power supply should plug into your motherboard. It will have 20 or 24 big white plastic pins.
You may have more similar jacks on your motherboard like a 4-pin jack! Hook that up too!

16. Hook up disk drive power.
Any power cable coming out of the power supply that fits into your hard disk is correct. It doesn't matter how you do this.

17. Video card power.
Your video card may require a power source itself. It will be similar to the hard drive power cables.

18. Case fan power.
Hook up your case fans to the power supply. These can usually fit in between the power supply and a device like a drive. That's fine.

19. Look over everything and make sure everythings plugged in all the way. Make sure nothing loose will get in the fans. Make sure there are no loose screws.
Then put the panels back on the case, plug everything in, and turn it on!

This is all from memory so ... take that as you will. Always refer to the instructions if you are unsure. Or post questions and I will try to answer.
well I don't really use Steam much anymorez so thanks for the help once again.




P.S.


My dad and I are building our new computer.


Know any good guides online?
User
Probably. What are the main apps you use on your computer?
It will let you load more processes at a time without slowing down your computer.
Question: Will upgrading my 1GB memory to 2GB in the timeframe until I buy a computer speed things up for awhile?
Yeah, I talked to my dad about that.


We may even go with the setup supes showed me.



It's just, I've (or my dad, for that matter) have never built our own computer, and I imagine it's not hard?
Building your own is much better than buying one premade for you.

Just my thought. You get more "bang for the buck".

I believe the computer that I built early 2005 cost me around $600 using some of the best computer hardware out there.
User
If it doesn't look like Windows, then it's probably a BIOS password.

You need to reset your CMOS.

There are 2 ways to do this:
1) On your motherboard, find the reset jumper. It should have 3 pins and be labeled 'RESET' or 'CLEAR CMOS' or somesuch. Move the jumper from the two pins it is on to the other two it can be on. Then turn on the computer. Your CMOS will be reset and it won't ask for a password any more. Then turn OFF your computer and put the jumper back to where it was. Otherwise it will reset every time you turn on the computer. This also resets the time, which is annoying.

2) Remove the battery from your motherboard. It looks like a large watch battery. Leave it disconnected for several minutes and then put it back. This SHOULD clear the CMOS, since it has no power.

Total: $1,003.91

See for yourself in this Shopping Cart

This thing is so great I might have to buy one for me right now!

Holy shit that computer is awful.

For one thing: Integrated Intel 950 (Graphics Card) means you won't be able to play games on it.

You can get an very nice computer for $1,300 but you'll have to build it yourself. Or have a friend do it. To get an equivalent from HP/DELL/ETC would cost at least $3000.
I need a new computer.


I want one that will run games really cool like and not lag.




BUT it has to be sorta cheap. Not breaking over $1,300



HP comes to mind. How does this setup sound...



HP Pavilion Slimline s3000y series

Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
Intel Pentium 4 641 w/ HT Technology, 3.2GHz
2GB DDR2-667MHz dual channel SDRAM (2x1024)

I've seen halo maps ported to CS 1.6, and source. so I know its possible to do it in both. i was wondering how to do this. I can't find anything that would allow me to rip the .bsp in any of my software (dothalo, adi, h2x, dark matter, insolence, and entity. I don't see anything in any of those programs to allow me to save the .bsp

even after I manage to get the .bsp out, how would I go about saving it as a compatable state for CS 1.6 to handle? (I don't own source, nor does my computer possess the ability to run it, so no that won't work)


any help is appreciated.

a new computer chip





Subject: Apple Computers new computer chip



Apple Computers announced today that it has developed a computer chip that can store and play music in women's breast implants. The iBoob will cost between $499 and $599. This is considered to be a major breakthrough, because women are always complaining about men staring at their breasts and not listening to them.

Thanks to Apple, now everyone will be happy.

I couldn't get Windows Vista to work on my computer so I just installed Linux over it.

hi guys...
i'm a newb here...but i'v build 6 or 7 maps which is working fine but from yesterday...i'm facing 3 problems

1.any of my old map i'm trying to update is not being updated.though it's showing no serious err on compiling.

2.nay new map i'm trying to build is not compiling ..it's giving token taking too long & some brush error.& after that no rmx or p0,p1..,bsp file is being generated..though the .map & .rmf file is still there.

3.when i'm trying to compile a fully working map[in my own computer] in another computer of my friend.it's showing some err but still gets compiled & while playing that map no light effect is working..

i'm really confused & need some help. thnx in advance.

It's pretty unlikely someone would go to all the trouble to distribute a big ol' ISO, modified, with a keygen, just to get a virus out. There are much easier ways.

What I'd recommend is getting a shit-computer and running suspicious programs on it only, while NOT connected to the Interweb. You can get a shit-computer from a garage sale for like $5. Depends on if you really need to do this a lot though....

I'm a major fan of having HijackThis. It kills just about anything you don't like and doesn't always ruin your computer in the process. You just have to know what you are doing with it.

The site it's on has lots and lots of other pwnage programs.

http://www.merijn.org

This site works VERY well in conjunction with something like Spybot SD because Spybot detects almost all malware even if it can't delete it. Then ya just find the right program to murder what you detected on Merijn. It hasn't failed me yet.

Also the Spybot Teatimer is the shit.

Yeah well I am having worse luck. I was getting 100fps but the graphics of the game was terrible. I changed my settings around trying to boost the graphics (my friend sent me a copy of his config file) and my fps dropped to about 50 and it looked terrible still. I tweaked my graphics settings (in Windows) and now I can't connect to a game or if I do it shows Loss and Choke. Wtf. My friend's computer is not even remotely as good as mine (and mine is not awesome). When I don't connect it gets stuck on "IN: .42kb/s" which makes no sense because I was just downloading on bit torrent at 120 kb/s-400kb/s. Here are my specs. Maybe someone can help me too

no, i dont hear the hard drive making any noise

Try not to run any programs before you compile your map, if you do happen to run any programs, restart your computer, thats what i do and it goes alot faster.

How bout your hard drive? Is it full?

If it's a surf map you probably have a lot of open space. It could help to remove any you don't really need. HL isn't really good with big open spaces.


No actually i just got a brand new computer i only used 30 gigs of 180.

The real problem is your computer ran out of memory. How much RAM do you have? And is it possible that other programs were eating up a lot of memory during the compile? And is your map very large/complex?


I have 1 gig of ram, I did not have any other programs running at the time but i did have my screen turned off because i was out for a couple of hours, the map is just a basic surf map.

A good defrag every so often never hurt anyone.

You might also want to update your video drivers, if you haven't recently. I've had my computer for three or four years now (yeah, I know) and was having just an awful time with noted resource-hog Civilization 4, but after Nez suggested I download a new driver (and I did so) it began running much smoother. I still can't run some of the higher end new games on the highest level of detail without paying penalties, but it certainly knocked my need to get a new computer down a few priority levels.
thats what we're doing with our computer.
Fortunately I'm getting an external hard drive for my birthday (tomorrow) so that will make things alot easier.

If you're still lagging I would recommend first a Spyware / Adware check. Use Ad-Aware and Spyware Doctor. There are cracks for Spyware Doctor everywhere.

Yeah..if all else fails then go with a reformat, but ONLY if you know how. And don't ask how or you'll get confused.

A while back I remember visiting goggle.com and found the goggle search engine, which was essentially this web site which said you had the wrong site and made a spelling error. It then gave you this handy google search bar, like you see on websites sometimes.

I think its on goggle-search-engine.com now, oddly enough.

I woulden't try going to either of those sites now though, after seeing this movie. This scares the shit outta me. One tiny spelling mistake and BOOM: There goes your computer.

Can people STOP posting as me? It's getting mildly irritating. How did that even happen? I haven't logged on anyone else's computer in forever! I KNOW this is YOUR fault Erika, given that nudity of it all.
User
That error really just means HL ran out of memory while trying to load entities.

It is hard for me to narrow down why that would happen.

How much RAM do you have? And how much memory are the background programs on your computer using?

Also, what kinds of entities are you using? Some entities use more memory than others.

This error is computer specific, i.e. if I load the map on my computer, I may not get it, even though you do.

If I could back my items up on disks, I would do it but heres the problem....

When I was building my computer, I took parts out of my Dell. What I didn't take out was the CD Drive. Well the CD Drive I took from my friend was only a readable CD Drive and not a writable. So I decided I would get my old CD drive. Turns out, Dell hates me and nearly made it impossible to get the CD Drive out without destroying the whole case. So I left it there, and now I have only a readable CD Drive. I know it sucks, but I plan on getting a new CD Drive this Christmas so :)

For some damned reason, I cant connect to steam on the old computer.

When I first run steam, it gives me the generic "Could not connect to steam" Error.

Occasionally it gives me a regular error that states "Steam Main Excerption: Error 200(Or 500, something like that) Connection closed by peer". Sometimes it opens the update box and the bar dosen't move.
I'm using a D-Link 614+ Router, and I can connect with another computer that uses it.

I had HLDS installed, but I deleted the folder, and I think that may be causing it.

1) Set Windows to record from its own sound output...
Start->Run "sndvol32":


Options->Properties


Select Recording, check all boxes, click OK


Check box for Stereo Mix or whatever's on the far left:


2) Use sound recorder to record perfect quality sound from any program...
Start->Run "sndrec32"


File->Properties


Click on Convert Now


Choose "CD Quality" from the list and click OK


Click OK


Now you can click the Record button to record ANY SOUND your computer makes!


So hit record, then start the flash movie, and stop recording when appropriate.

Every time open sndrec32 you should do the Convert to CD Quality stuff or it will sound like crap.

That's correct.

Sometimes I wish I used less though. Flash is too clunky to keep it going at 20 FPS on everyone's computer even without much going on.

And when it lags, all my awesome sounds and voice acting don't line up with the video and DAMMIT I HATE THAT SHIT.

wth? who posted as me? Did I stay logged on on that computer Erika uses? There better not be another spy in our midst...
It probably is your resolution, because I've had my computer set at the wrong resolution, and it didn't show the text, and then I put the right resolution in, the text showed up.



I dunno if thats your problem but it was mine.

Game consoles suck.

Last good console game I played was on my computer.

So there.

Battlefield 2142 looks good though.

If you have a good computer, buy CS: Source.

Otherwise get CS 1.6 original. Do not get Condition Zero.


Personally I don't think Counter-Strike: Source is any good but the only people who agree with me are the ones who grew up playing CS 1.6 & older.
I was working on a Pocky & Rocky multiplayer top-down fighter, but that was on the computer that got jacked. The motherboard is fucked, so my game is gone. Now I'm working on a Strike game (as in Desert/Jungle/Urban Strike). Also multiplayer... But first I have to get the sprites. Seeing as how I have ADD, it will be a while.........

He's got 9600 baud.

He has an external "2 cups and a string" module but it doesn't interface with his computer, it's too new.

Ok, I got another problem: I have a jump drive right.... for some reason, it only loads the progress on the map made on that computer, so essentially you get two versions of the computer.
I am making my own version of mcdiddy's, and I have to say it looks pretty good so far. Just all I need are a few sounds:

1. Counter-terrorists and terrorists win sound
2. hostage down sound
3. voice commands
4. Reloading

No, unfortanutly I do not have counter-strike on this computer, so I can't get to them in the program files.

Any sites or listings appreciated!

and by broads you mean chicks who cant get a nice stong handsome guy so they go for cying saps right? i mean, what kind of chick would give up tom cruise, or whatever dude chicks fantasize about for some skinny computer geek that crys when his mom tells him to go outside and pick up some milk?

Conclusion:

To compare my wpm to one of yours; I would still be slower if one of you got an undetectable computer virus where every letter you typed would be deleted one second after you typed it.

Isn't that what Ibbletype.z@mm did back in 2002? Or am I hallucinating viruses again? Damn. Me and my various whatnotted hallucinations. Bleck.


Anyway, my main problem is that my fingers are short, and my palms are huge. So I can't exactly get them to assume the correct keyboard position. One of my fingers ends up trying to go through the one next to it to get to a key. Then, my hands start aching like hell. Well, it's not that they exactly succeed in going through one another. It's more like it feels like I get a needle jammed through it. So I type with one hand just to keep it simple.

I just want to say first off to SuperJer that he freakin' rawks for making such a newbie friendly site! Ive been playing CS for almost a year now and still can't quite get the hang of it. I guess I'm just not that fast. But I would love to learn how to make maps that many will enjoy. Which is why I've joined the forum. I'd love to become an expert at mapping. But, like most else, that'll take a long while. Did I mention I'm a slow learner?

Anyway, to avoid any conflusterbation regarding my SHOW YOUR PICTURE firetruck post, I was tired and wanted to introduce myself. Now that I think of it, the post's timing was a bit off. Along with the fact that I think newbies to the forum weren't really expected to post anything there. But I won't remove them unless I'm requested/required to do so... or unless they're removed for me by Admin.

All of the posts here I've found either extremely amusing or very helpful/informative. So, I'm looking forward to any replies to this firetruck. Oh, and by the way; Why is it called "firetruck" instead of-- okay, I previewed it, and it automatically translates. The term that gets omitted could be used for something else, like a type of string. But I guess not many people talk about fabric here. Is there some sort of etymology to the term "firetruck"? I don't think the original term that firetruck replaces is copyrighted or anything. Not a biggie, I'm just curious.

Well, I'm gonna go fiddle around with Teh Hammre. Hopefully I don't accidently cause a major frackup! It's weird, I can master building a computer with ease. But I can't figure out squat when it comes to games. They're both electronic, shouldn't I be able to do both with the same amount of ease? I would stick with text-based programming, but I'm a terribly slow typer. So it would take me a year to comlete a .bsp file. Again, odd. Since I've been typing since age 7.

I'm sorry. I know I ramble. It happens when I get very appreciative of someone's help. Thanks, SuperJer!

Don't use "Tools" "Transform". It has nothing to do with teleporters.

To make a teleporter, you need a trigger_teleport (brush-based entity) and a info_teleport_destination (point entity).

Give the info_teleport_destination a name and set the target of the trigger_teleport to that name.

That's basically it. The player will teleport to the info_teleport_destination when they step into the trigger_teleport.

------------------------------------------------------------------

There are two things wrong in your screenshot. 1) No shadows (because HLRAD failed, see below). 2) Far away stuff is disappearing. This one is easy. Go to Map->Map Properties... and set the Max Viewable Distance to a higher number. I like to use 16384.

------------------------------------------------------------------

Error: Memory allocation failure

Your computer doesn't have much memory or your HLRAD is just using way too much. The problem is your map is HUGE. You need to scale UP the textures on some of your huge surfaces. This will make the lighting lower resolution and use less memory. Or you can set chop to a higher value, which will cause your lighting to be lower res too:

hlrad -chop 128 surf_25hp
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Warning: Leaf portals saw into leaf

Don't worry about this. With more complex maps, sometimes HLVIS breaks up the map in a way that doesn't quiiiiite work. The result is that from somewhere in the map, some polygons will disappear. You'll probably never find it anyways. They're usually tiny.

yes yes valve hammer stealing much computer memory

I made my own WAD file and i loaded it on my FTP server along with my map, But it wont download to the users computer so they get a fatal error and get logged out of CS because they dont have the wad for my map.

--I figured out how to do it. But I have 4 more questions:

*How do i put multiple textures in a .WAD file? I use HLTag converter, And im wondering if you need a totally different program or something.

*How can you make it so you can see through the bars in a ladder. Like in maps like cs_assault, ect you can see through the bars in the ladder, Can you teach me how to do this?

*Doors, I made a rotating door and i put an origin texture on it, So i go to compile my map and: Origin brush is invalid in the map or something.

*I have a snow texture on the ground of my map, How do i make it so when you walk on it, It makes the snow sound..

Sorry i just want to tie into this because i made my own WAD file and i loaded it on my FTP server along with my map, But it wont download to the users computer so they get a fatal error and get logged out of CS because they dont have the wad for my map.
User
u never used it that was cstrike.wad and try going into search and searching my computer for the file. if its not there go on google and search for the file u can get it there.
User
Well now I can't remember your phone number. And my phone is 100% dead so I can't get it from my phonebook. Plus now I'm packing up my computer so I'll just have to talk to you when I get home tonight. See ya later.

So aaron is saying: Whoop their asses?

I am rethinking about hacking them, but I need some help.

I am gonna need info about some IP's. For example, are they proxy IP's?

Then, I need to know what port to put the trojan into.

Stuff like that.


That's not what I said... unless you could somehow send-splash sodium hydroxide on them through their computer. Anyway, the stuff isn't hard to get and it is very corrosive (and non-toxic unless you drink it, so they won't die) while numbing nerves at the same time. Get it in their socks, their skin will burn off and the won't even know it until it is hospital time. (Trust me, I know, I had a bad experience) Forget all this boring "hacking" crap. And who the fuck has naked pictures of themselves on their computer? Besides SooprJer, anyway.
User
Its actually pretty easy. All you need is a trojan, and a method of finding out someone's IP address. For example, try making a myspace account, adding whomever you hate to your friends list, add some html that traces IP's and then using the trojan, connect to them.

Once you do that, you can do maaaaaany evil things, like, steal their personal nude pics of themselves, and bring them to your computer, then print them out and distribute them throughout the school.

Or you could find out what keys they are typing when they log into AIM or their email, and send nasty pictures to all their friends, or insult them to their face, so that they will have problems in school.

Take this hypothetical situation:

I connected to Mia's computer. Mia was a whore who cheated on me. I start a keylogger, a program which tracks what keys are pressed after you start it. I disconnect her their AIM, then wait till she logs on again. The keylogger recordes what keys were typed, and you log into their account on you computer, and insult every one of their friends, send horror porn to them, and many other evil, EVIL stuff.

Its a virus someone uses to control another person's computer via the internet.

Were talking people who havent even HEARD of a trojan, just like nearly everyone I know there has not the slightest clue as to what computer code is.

They are dumb.


Dumb as in: "Should not breed" kinda dumb.


And god PLEASE tell me they dont know HTML.

I can't call it original, but it would only make sense for things on the McDiddy's menu to be power-ups.

If 1UP and Stiltburger don't have the EXACT same definition in a MacDaddies game I WILL come back down there and kill you and steal your computer so I can play Hitman 4.

The stiltburger should move really erratically like it's bouncing around on the plate in MD1. It'd be all clicking and bouncing around and making that twirly noise all up around the level.

Oh, and Ray Charles' sunglasses, they should make you infallable.

So, if computers are logical, and if the universe is logical, then that must mean EVERYTHING is prechosen by the tinyist results from the big bang, right? Because if there is no way of making a real random number on a computer, who says they exist in real life. Which means we have no free will.

Why? Because all our decisions are influenced by things that happened. There is not a real choice.

There is no way, unless Jesus comes and makes a new entity, to kill only one selected team. If you're doing like fort wars or something, and each team is stuck in their spawn, do what Superjer said and make a button trigger "trigger_hurt" doing like 250 damage just for safety. Careful though, if you're not running on a very good computer, then too many trigger_hurt deaths at the same time might crash, I've had experiences with this.

For glass look up "glass" in the little search box at the bottom of the browse, there are plenty of good glass textures in the halflife.wad.

Hopefully that helps..

Sorry, I gotta correct you here. The games that made computer gaming popular were quake and Duke 3D. Counterstrike was out way later.

You gotta know your history man.

Basically what I'm trying to get at is that you loose 200 points for lack of studying. (Remember, being a gamer correctly is a chore.)

I think it's just your computer. A lot of hardware is really bad at drawing decals. Can you always see bullet holes on walls when you shoot them?
User
Why are you posting this under McDiddy's 3?

It looks like Splatter Mario is not compatible with your computer.
The game was written in VB using DX 6 (or 7?) and specifically DIRECT DRAW

DirectDraw is no longer supported by Microsoft/Graphics Hardware peeps so it just doesn't work for some people.

I am working on a more better game engine so in the future you can play some SuperJer games that WORK for everyone.
User
buy hl 1 and u can get 1.6 for free off of steam.
Comp games are good cuz u have a keyboard and a mouse which is the best to use and counterstrike was basically what made computer gaming so popular( thats what got me started back in the 5th grade (im almost 15))

Gaming consoles are too restrictive unless theyre modded, then they become more of a computer.
whats so good about computer games?

Dont feel bad. I got a 5 year old computer, and my parents STILL wont get a new one. Yet they could not part with getting $3000+ worth of furnature.

My specs are not impressive. My computer is like 2 years old. But it's totally silent.

Well, my computer's abotu twice as good as dburnell's, if for no other reason than I have an AMD processor... I bought a 300 gb hard drive and a new 24x dvd rom drive the other day, but I can't install the bloody things because the other side of my case won't come off.

Anyway, I'd upgrade my computer, but I've been saving up my cash for a new car because the next time I make a sharp right turn, the wheels will fall off and I will die.

(And when I first read Tater's post, I thought he said his processor was 9000+, holy shit)

TEXTURES
I do make my own textures. See de_salt(2) & de_kalt for reference. Also a new map coming soon will have all new textures. (Not really new, just unreleased :)

I use Paint Shop Pro 5 to make them, and then Wally to wadify them.

Here's the steps I usually take to make a texture:

1. Find a photo on google or use a digital camera. Should be very high-res.
2. Crop to a square, but keep the original image for cloning.
3. Get it to wrap left-right and up-down. I use a lot of clone brush for this.
4. Smooth out any 'landmarks' in the image so you can't see it repeating over and over. Sometimes just erase them, or clone them in a non-uniform pattern. <-- also lots of clone brush.
5. Maybe sharpen or recolorize. If the image contains large dark/light regions, I use inverse low frequency blending (below).
5. Resize to 256x256.
6. Reduce to 256 colors.
7. Copy/paste into wally.


Inverse low freq. blending:
Sometimes no matter how good your texture wraps and how detailed and good it looks alone, when it repeats across a wall or whatever, it looks like shit because, for example: the left half is dark and the right half is light. So: vertical stripes.

For this problem I like to use inverse low frequency blending (ILFB).

Alls you gotta do is:
1. Blur the image A TON until its nothing but a smooth gradient reresenting light/dark regions. I use a gaussian blur with a factor of like 15.0. This gives you just the low frequency image data.
2. Take the negative of the image. Now you have the inverse of the light/dark regions.
3. Re-colorize the image so it matches the original color (about) but with backwards lights/darks.
4. Blend this with the original image. I use a mathematical average in PSP5.
5. Fix the result by hand and with sharpening (probably). It should no longer have light/dark regions because they should have been canceled out in the blend operation.


MAPS
I usually draw everything on paper before I do it on a computer. This goes for maps, coding, web design etc. This doesn't mean I'll follow the paper plan exactly but it helps me to organize my thoughts in sloppy ink markings before I try to build the final poroduct.
But that's just me.
