  1. Part of me wants to make a boom compatible monster pack to go with my generalised texture pack. Wonder how I could set it up without sacrificing any enemies or things.

  2. So it's my birthday. Woo. Happy 31.

      "Day" is a vestigial mode of time measurement based on solar cycles, it's not applicable.

      I didn't get you anything.

  3. Trying to learn Blender is a little bit like sticking your brain in a blender.

    If only I still had a copy of 3dsMax 6 or 7 from college.

      It took me a year to learn it.. First time I learned something about the modeling. Tried to UV map the model, got frustrated and didn't touch the program for some year. Later I thought to try it again with more patience. Took me a few weeks to learn all the stuff to make an animated model.

      But that UV mapping. Fucking UV mapping, man! It's not voodoo magic! I just hope they improve it some time....

      Well, after you've celebrated quite a few of them, you begin to realize what it is that you are actually celebrating.

      Aching knees, a digestive system that ain't workin' like it used to, etc...

      I only recognize my birthday anymore because I still love cake-n-icecream like I'm 5 years old. Yeah, nevermind that it sends me to the bathroom in a bad way.

      Happy Birthday, rf`. May you experience many more.

  5. Yep. Today I'm 25, and nothing special's going on that i know of.

      Oh shit, your avatar just brought back memories. I havenm't even seen that game in over 15 years.

      At some point during my last year of college I DOSBOX'd Jill, Bio-Menace, and Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure when I discovered it was all being given away for free by Apogee. Shit was magical.

  6. I'm working on quake modding thanks to Kaiser's help.

    I'm still trying to figure out more complex functions and quakec still eludes me, but here's to trekking along. :D

    I put it here because if you've seen the planetquake forums, more people who cared would see it here.

      Does Quake have an equivalent resource bestiary?

      Not like the Doom bestiary. However, the Quoth mod has many nice features (tech, monsters and items) and there are numerous maps that use it.

      It's nice seeing people do SP mapping for Quake. it seems everyone in the Quake community is too busy making MP maps and MP mods to do anything with SP anymore.

      Quite the contrary, actually. Hardly anyone is making MP maps anymore these days (there are so many great maps, but the majority of DM players is too conservative to even give them a try). So the only real mapping activity today is in the field of SP. Of course there aren't as many releases as back in the day, perhaps around 15 each year, but most of them are excellent.

  9. I don't have much to say really. It seems the only time I have anything worth writing about, its never good news.

    We just had to put my cat to sleep earlier today. It's always a difficult decision to make, but honestly we think its for the best for him.

    My cat Taz was a 10 year old tan-colored maine coon. He is what you'd call a lump. A loveable lump. Loved lazing around and purred when you pet him. You could do practically anything to him and he wouldn't run or bite. Except for DC. They were the only two male cats in the house and often fought for territory. Almost all cats do that; but other then him, he was a love to everyone else.

    A couple days ago we noticed him laying by the water bowl, just sitting there barely breathing. We noticed that he wouldn't move or look up at us when we got near. At first, we though he was just dehydrated again. Then we noticed a bunch of fleas in a cobweb and thought it was flea anemia. It was a very hot day and knew the heat wasn't helping him. Their room unfortunately does not have much ventilation, only having one small window above a cat ledge in the hallway between sections of the house. So, I picked him up to take him to dad's room where it was air-conditioned. That's when I realized that he had been peeing blood. We called the vet's office in Richland (we've had bad experiences with the closer office downtown), and took him up.

    They said he had sand blockage in his bladder, which is (relatively) common in some cats. They put him on a cathoder to flush the toxins out, hoping it would help him. Dad was worried the whole time that we would lose him, which was realistically possible to happen, as kidney/bladder problems in cats escalate much worse than in humans. Taz stayed overnight under their observation.

    The next day I was at work (and having a really lousy day at it). Dad came in to tell me that he wasn't doing very well and they may have to let him go. I nodded and said if its the only thing left to do... do it. Then he went back to the vet's and I went back to work. When he came to pick me up later that night, he told me that Taz was home for now, on pain medication and antibiotics and a new diet. I knew that if he wasn't better in a few days, chances were he wouldn't be.

    The day after, he seemed to be doing a little better. He was still groggy from the pain meds, but was starting to eat and drink a little, and peeing. But it didn't last long, because when we got home from the reunion the next day, he was doing worse again. We took him back to the office today for fluids and a checkup, and they noticed that he was already undergoing renal failure. They could keep him cathed for the rest of his life, but honestly, it wasn't an option. We didn't have the money for it and there was no guarantee that it would help anyway. So we made the decision to have them euthanized then and there. I was thankful for them that they let us stay with him for the whole thing. The other office downtown pretty much kicked us out when they put down one of my other sick cats from years ago, and that was the last involvement we had with them.

    My dad is one of the tougher people I know of in my life, right up there with my mom, and he could barely talk the way he felt. Mom was there with taz, waiting for him. We knew he was safe now. We didn't take him home to bury him, we had nowhere to do so, so we left him in their capable hands. We weren't worried about the body anymore. It was just an empty shell now. Taz is somewhere out there with my mom, the denmother for all of our cats.

    I love you Taz. I always will.

      Sorry to hear about Taz. I know how it feels when you have to put a kitty to sleep. I wasn't present when Frisco was put to sleep years ago. My Dad and brother were and they told me he was purring in his final moments. By this we felt the right choice had been made.

      I lost my 8 year old cat Loom earlier this month to urinary blockage, I had dealt with it a few months prior, and a year ago, both with good results. Then suddenly, he became very ill and went within the course of a few days. I didn't even have time to get him to the vet. Sorry ravage, I know how you feel. With pets it's all about quality of life, so when it's their time, they just go.
      I'll keep getting cats (got a female kitten last summer), and I'll keep outliving them, but they enrich my life and I need them around.

      That's pretty much exactly what happened to Taz. The effects of an illness in a cat show much faster than in a human, and urinary tract problems are very common in cats too, even moreso than us.

      I don't think we'll be getting any more cats. We have four left now, well my cats at least. I don't count my sister's cat. Marshmallow lives downstairs, and never sees mine. Which is fine with me because she's a total bitch.

      I love Quake 4. I appreciated the storyline, the uncomplicated gameplay, and the art direction, and I wished it had cooperative. I play Quake 4 precisely for its lack of sophistication... just grab a gun and kill stuff.

  12. There is something I would like to say. I am straight. I'm a regular poster here and I wouldn't in a million years admit it unless I was hiding behind this account..Like I am now

    What hurts me the most is that you all seem like nice people, when you're not acting the way, well...people act. There is so much hatred of people who are simply wired differently from others. I really can't understand it. People allude to it and I guess that's fine, but it still hurts just the same.

    Even though I'm not really "coming out" I still feel a little bit better being able to admit it on this forum, in some small way.

      Heh, I ran across the Dr. Who theme on Ishkur's guide a while ago. I never saw the show before, but ever since I heard the theme I've wanted to see it.

      Also...this site has the Young Ones theme! I've been looking for that.

  15. I just got back from a good party, a little tired and woozy, but feeling alright.

    We had an anniversary wake for my mom. It was one year ago today that she died of diabetes. We held a party in her honor to celebrate her life. This was what we did last year as well. She never wanted a funeral viewing, so she got a party instead. It's what she wanted.

    Lots of people came, in fact there are still a few people left as i write this. But I say this knowing that she was there in spirit, laughing and drinking with the rest of us. She never really left us. Her mark is everywhere we go and in everything we do.

    I love you mom. I truly do.

      Anybody know how to get pressure sensitivity working in photoshop 5 limited edition (Windows XP machine...it DID work, then the tablet stopped working, as it sometimes does, restarted and that feature no longer worked, re-installed, still didnt work. XP seems to like ignoring the drivers and installing 'its own' drivers to use, which dont support pressure sensitivity, though the diagnostic tool made by Wacom still detects pressure levels)

    Through shadows dark and visions damned.
    The furies reign and claim their home,
    Tempest winds against we'll roam.
    Marching on into the night,
    Beaming out our future's light.
    Some will look back on our day,
    Cry they will for what we pay.
    Dying world we look to you,
    And see your message all too true.
    Fires rage our sins we dealt,
    Forever more our children felt.
