    Zombie Sprites

    Anyone know of any other resources? I myself am interested in regular, unarmed, particularly hungry, zombie sprites... or models, for that matter. I've spent the better part of the last year working on a Day/Dawn/Land of The Dead/Dead Rising/RE inspired project, a city overrun with zombies and the main character fighting his way through them to set up a safe haven for the rest of the world. I'm pretty proud of my work; One level, a map of a city, full of shops/hotels/offices/government buildings, streets trashed and littered with cars, just about every area is accessible, easily about 5 hours of gameplay as is! The only problem I have is that I have no zombies at all to fight! I've gone down many venues, from making my own sprites (horribly time consuming) to making my own models (time consuming + I can't seem to do it) to stealing from other games/media (too hard to find)... I'm currently looking into grabbing models from the RE series and editing them as a last resort, although this too looks to be pretty hard to do. Last week, my computer burnt up and I took that as a sign... I'm using the next week as one last chance to find some (or someone that will make me some!) before giving up completely :/

    Classic Win 3.1 Game(s)

    I've been searching for a game for about 3 years now, and it took that win95 post to make me realize i could probably ask here! Back when I had win 3.1, there was an old program (not entirely sure if it could really be considered a game or not) called "Engine" (i think). It shows you a picture of an engine, you hit the ignition and it tells you what happens, ie, grinding sound, or the engine chugs for a second and quits, or nothing at all. You have a list of parts to repair/fix/replace/whatever, and you click on what you think is wrong. if you're right, it starts up, if your wrong, probably not. Anywho, any help in finding this would be much appreciated :)

      So this is what, the third time?

      When I shaved my head I gave it to that hair/wig replacement program. I'm still looking around to see somebody with my old hair.

  5. ....Though I'm one of the few EDGE-savvy patriots left. Lobo updated his nifty Edge Shell/Launcher port. Guess I do know what it means! Insert my leet copy and paste skills concerning new features: Sounds pretty awesome. And for all you other people who hate EDGE, something else worth noting: Tobester tested, Tobester approved. Go grab it here.

    I still don't know what Lobo_Eire or ESL means...

    ....Though I'm one of the few EDGE-savvy patriots left. Lobo updated his nifty Edge Shell/Launcher port. Guess I do know what it means! Insert my leet copy and paste skills concerning new features: ++ "Package it!" option. * This will create a compressed zip file which will contain all of the add-ons (wads, bex etc.) currently loaded into ESL, as well as a readme.txt file and a MiniLauncher program. * The MiniLauncher program can be used by the end user to run your TC in the chosen source port, with all of the add-ons automatically loaded (so the end user doesn't have to know nor use commandline parameters) * There are 2 customizable image files which you can edit to change the aspect of the MiniLauncher: one is for the background and one is for the actual "Run/play" button. * There is also a Readme.txt file which you can replace with your own. Sounds pretty awesome. And for all you other people who hate EDGE, something else worth noting: I should point out that while the name implies it only works with EDGE, that has not been true for several versions now, and ESL works with ALL source ports. Tobester tested, Tobester approved. Go grab it here.
  7. I do news whenever someone asks me too. Not to mention that I use ESL a lot when my hand isn't cut in half :P
  8. So I decided to do /newstuff, since I've been a DW newsie since '02 or so and I've not posted any news since '02 or so. I've beaten cancer, I've cut my hand in half, I've broken my right leg in 3 places and had to walk home on it, and I was once "nudged" by a car, but I think this will be my biggest challenge yet. BECAUSE I FUCKING HATE 1994 WADS. Edit: I don't have to review them. Fuck. First off, of everything in /newstuff, do NOT download the following WADs. They are either 1994ish WADs or suck so much ass that they choke on it:dmcitydmcosfataldmgutsspideredspillwayUndrangl (I play Legacy maps FOR NO MAN)All the others:Woah - CheapAlert Boom Compatible - n/a - 1391KB - GFX/Sound/Weapon replacement.

But then we added som stuff and it like stopped working in some sections. Youll need like an ultra fast Pentium or something to run this. It took forever to make nodes. It's actually pretty good looking for a '94 level. I beat it in about 10 seconds. (Editor's note: this looks to be a bad joke WAD rather than a genuine 1994 WAD.)

    The /newstuff Chronicles #241

    For the record, I DID do all the grunt work: I played all the maps, including the 94 maps. The ones at the top were not worth a review :P

    The /newstuff Chronicles #241

    As for wads I didn't review, I reviewed everything that was in the /newstuff directory on Saturday morning. Someone sent me a PM claiming I forgot some, but the ones he directed me to were uploaded later that day. As I said, I apologize for said shitty reviews. Gimme another chance :)

    The /newstuff Chronicles #241

    Thanks for the criticism. Yeah, I spose I should've made screenies for each map. That would've been the smart thing. I forgot all about making screens tho, and BS reminded me to like 5 minutes before he posted newstuff, so I did the great maps and canned the crap maps. Want better reviews? Make better maps :P

    The /newstuff Chronicles #241

    Lol, sorry. To be honest I wasn't 100% on being able to do newstuff; I signed up for it like a month ago, thinking 'hey IM ALWAYS BORED' and my mother, totally randomly, decided to move on Wednesday, tapping her son who has a hand cut in half to help her. I spent 18 hours moving all her furniture and everything out of her house to a new place. I've been hurtin ever since. However, if you ever need newstuff again, im more than willing, now that I've had practice i could probably pull it off properly. The reviews were short for the most part because I played them in a short amount of time (I was expecting to be tapped to help move again).

    Creating music

    When actually creating music? Usually I wait for something to piss me off or make me really depressed. Then I get extremely drunk (I think I play my guitar better when I'm drunk, and my friends agree!) and write a song about it. Some of my best songs have come out this way. Unfortunately, I've only got midi samples of it, till my spoon player moves up to playing drums and I grow extra arms to play bass and lead guitar at the same time.

    Did you donate to the cause?

    Actually, I did. A few days ago I was at a store (Kroger's or Meijer's, can't remember which) and donated my pocket change... I thought I threw in $1 and change, but when I got home I counted and found out I threw in a $10.

    Dimebag Darrell shot dead

    That is fucking scary. I was sposed to go to that concert with a friend of mine... I think im going to go punch stuff now.
  23. So, the other day I decided it was format time. I moved all of the important stuff (mp3's, midi's i'd been working on, .wmv's of my roommates penis, etc.) off of my windows hd, rebooted my computer (after it had been on for 9 days, a personal record since I put in the pretty colorful epilepsy-inducing sleep-reducing fans), and began searching for my Xp disk. When the bios started, I got an error message, something along the lines of "CMOS ERROR: Loading Fail-Safe Defaults... Loading complete". Scared, I let the computer boot properly, no noticeable problems. Confident, I rebooted again.
    When XP started, it began loading, then about 5 seconds into the loading screen, the computer rebooted, and did the same thing over again. About 4 reboots later, I turned off the computer, frustrated.
    Later, I found my XP disk, stuck it in the CD-Rom, and turned the computer back on. I got to XP setup, and started formatting my windows drive. At 98%, the computer turned off. I turned it back on, started the process again, and this time, it formatted properly, no problems. I started installing XP, and while setup was copying files to do so, I got a bsod, something along the lines of "IRQ_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL".
    Now mind ye, I've not changed a god damn thing at all that would cause this BSOD. I got this error a few months ago when I bought a new motherboard; a friend took my processor out, put it back in, and it was fine. I didn't set it properly or something. However, I hadn't touched the processor at all since he did that, so it couldn't be that causing the error.
    Frustrated again, I gave up and tried again later. This time, as XP setup began, I got another bsod: "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_DRIVE" or something similar. I turned off the computer and removed all the IDE drives except for my CD-ROM and Windows drive. THIS time, when I clicked on the power supply switch (NOT the computer power-on button) the computer started up, the hard drive (i think, anyway) making odd noises, and a strange smell coming from inside, while the monitor flashed NO VIDEO SIGNAL.
    Scared, I turned it off and took the entire damn thing apart. I checked EVERYTHING for signs of damage, scorchs/burns, anything. Everything looked clean and fine, PSU, processor, ram, motherboard, everthing. I put everything back together slowly, making sure everything was connected and mounted properly and correctly. When it was all back together, I hit the PSU switch, and the same thing happened again; the computer turned on, an odd noise came from inside.
    I turned the computer off, and one by one, I took everything out and replaced it with a different part, to see if it would fix the problem. I changed the PSU first, to my old one, same problem. I changed ram, processor, motherboard, hard drive, IDE cables, even switched chassis and power switch for the computer, in every possible combination, for roughly 7 hours. Each time, the same damn thing happened.
    I don't suppose ANYONE might know wtf is going on here?

    Specs for the systems:

    Comp name: "Suzie" (The one having problems)
    PSU: 480w PowerMax Demon (I tink thats the name)
    Processor: Amd Athlon 2100+
    Motherboard: Foxconn KM400M01 MiniATX

    HD: Western Digital 6 gig (Windows Drive)
    Cd-Rom: Mitsumi 48x CD-RW
    Chassis: Generic Thing I got for $50
    GFX: GF4 MX440

    Comp name: "Hehbox" (My backup that I stole the parts from)
    PSU: 300w Generic
    Processor: AMD Duron 2600+
    Motherboard Asus AV78X (or something with all those letters :P)
    Ram: 512mb DDR 'Valuram'
    HD: Western Digital 20gig, Maxtor 20gig, WD 2gig
    CD-Rom: Creative Labs 52x
    Chassis: Same as the other one, with a bunch of stickers on it
    GFX: Ati Rage Pro


    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Gotta go now, tho, my roommate's gf just had a baby :D

      That's a tough one to diagnose. I'm not exactly where you would start looking to tell you the truth. The motherboard would be the first place I would say to look at, taking it to a professional to have him test it. The last time my laptop acted funky, which was just before and at the 2003 QuakeCon, it ended up being a thing on my motherboard that fried itself.

      You may also want to try changing CD-Roms and graphics cards for shits and giggles. A friend of mine had a problem not long ago which he traced back to his graphics card.

      But if you switched motherboards, processors, ram, HDs, and all that, it sounds more like you switched computers.
