      No worries, if people ask for source of stuff that's not my edits I'm like "idk I'll find out tho" if I don't know offhand, I'm not looking to rip off people's work, I know how much effort goes into this stuff

       

      We have a new version of Odamex coming out soon that will debut a new PvE mode and if we slap together a monster based on your sprites for an add-on monster you will be credited as a source

       

      Keep it up tho! Good quality :)

  8. It kicked my ass. I'm still feeling tired after last night's incredible marathon of coolness. Wel eft the house at about 5 PM, and got there at 7, which was perfect timing as that's when the halloween even goes on and stuff. So we got those plastic armbands and stuff on entrance, and then took the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom park. It was pretty cool when we got off, weather wise. It definitely got down into the 50s later in the night, but otherwise it was pretty awesome. On arrival there was a mass exodus of people leaving, because the park was closing to all who didn't have a halloween pass kind of thing, and besides most of those people had been there like all day.

    Funny thing was, even though Main Street and the bit in front of the castle was crowded, all the branch-off areas were nearly devoid of people. Thing was, everyone was at those trick or treat places scattered throughout the park, so as a result, there was like 3 or 4 people per ride. It was really cool, no wait lines. Especally great because it wasn't in the middle of summer, and deathly hot. Everyone was pretty much dressed up, but there were a good amount of people like us who didn't bother. Our reason is that costumes were in fact a real pain in the ass to go trudging around it all night long.

    All throughout the park there were events going on like Villain's Mix and Mingle, where they all come out of the castle and stuff. Pretty neat, they were totally in character and everything. It was really amazing. They also had a few parades going as the night went on. That kinda stuff makes you think at how much they had to practice in order to get that entire elaborate dance routine down.

    As for the rides that we went on, it was pretty great all-around, as there were like no people whatsoever. Clockwise around the park, I think we went: Pirates of the Caribbean, which was updated to reflect the movies, so it kicked ass. Haunted Mansion, which I didn't get to go on several years ago, as we bypassed it. It was very neat, and it had a ghost rock band! Splash Mountain was closed, probably for good reason. Didn't want to get people soaking went in the current temps, I bet. That would suck. We also went to Small World, which gets totally stuck in your head for the rest of the night.

    There wasn't much else to speak of, at least I can't remember any other distinctive rides I went on, except for Space Mountain, which was THE best ride of the session. Not only is it very awesome and stuff, but as we approached the main area, the staff that were there were like "Do you want to see the control room?" Which was above our heads and before the actual ride. Inside, it was pretty cool. Had cameras and the like, and he said all the glowing switches actually worked, so no button pressing. Apparently, tracks A and B aren't actually different from each other, they just are mirrored. And get this: The top speed of Space Mountain is only 27 MPH, but it differs depending on which Space Mountain you go to, because there are others across the world. So ours is the second fastest in the world. I don't remember what the first was. And on top of all that, he led us around the back way to get in the front of the line (Which was the only significant line of all the rides we took). It was total celebrity treatment, and very cool.

    So after that, then we got the fireworks. At the current time we were wandering around the park and were behind the Carousel (sp?) when they started. It was the best fireworks show i've ever seen. Damn amazing. They fired off a huge amount of stuff all around us, and in the distance is where the big ones blew up. They were awhile away, because the light explosion was huge, but you couldn't HEAR it until like a second after it blew up in the sky. Those were some big fireworks. They had villian voiceovers and stuff too, timed in with the firework barrages, so it was pretty funny.

    After all that and the parades plus the fireworks, I picked up a cool Disney coffee mug and a Pirates of the Caribbean snowglobe, neither of which show up well in the crappy video i'm about to post a link to. But damn, good times to be had. A fantastic substitute for trick or treating here, anytime. No more moving Halloween bullshit like last year, where they pretty much moved Halloween to be held on the day before, because Halloween was originally on Sunday. Bloody christian controlled neighborhoods.

    Anyway, it was pretty much awesome all the way around. Here's my video documentary. Good luck understanding me or seeing anything useful, though. Webcams suck.

  9. And now I can say it from experience. Before I type the rest of this i'll say that I got my learners permit in late August, and have had no problems since. Anyway, I left the house at around 1 or so PM for Best Buy to go get a replacement for a broken joystick. Now, everything went smoothly until later on, on the way back home. I stopped at a red light at an intersection, and a police car is on my right (Thank god). I glance in the rear view mirror while waiting for the green light, and I see this red car zooming on the road behind me. I think he's going to slow down pretty quickly sometime but he didn't. He plowed right into my dad's car, which I happened to be driving. Air bags deployed, so at least I didn't break my face on the steering wheel.

    The entire thing seemed like slow motion. After the car stopped moving my dad pushed me, yelling get out of the car, and so I got the door open (I'm kinda surprised that with that speed, the door was still intact) and stumbled out, literally. After setting on the sidewalk, the policeman is already there in front of dad's wrecked car, and soon after the ambulance and fire truck arrives. We're totally fine, but the driver of the red car had to be taken to the hospital. I think he was totally unconcious. The policemen took us to the highway patrol station, and we were pretty much asked questions about different things that happened. We were found to be in completel compliance with the law and sent on our way. This was about an hour ago, and the entire ordeal took a lot longer than I thought it would have.

    My dad has warranty on his car, but i'm not sure if they replace entire vehicles, because i'm dumb and dunno how those car warranties work yet. I also don't think i'll be driving again anytime soon, despite that not being our only vehicle.

    Christ.

  10. Got to the florida state highway patrol office or something earlier today for my appointment. Presented the 5 million documents needed etc. So then I took a 40 question test on road signs and road rules. Passed all except for a question on high beam and low beam headlights, of which I knew nothing about until then. But I passed regardless, because if you got more than 5 wrong you'd fail. It all went well to obtain my driver's permit.

    Then I went to the bank. Good god how many documents you have to sign to open up a new account and such. A few bits of it still are making my head spin, but otherwise, it went pretty smoothly. The lady apparently couldn't get her computer working so it probably took twice as long as it should have in the first place. At any rate, debit card coming in the mail sometime soon.

    Slowly branching out into the actual world!

      heh let me put it this way.. being at a public school with, I suppose one could say "real people" sure beats going to one of the private schools around me where you are brought up like a pseudo-liberal yuppie child who would be taught to love every race and that every race is equal, yet the parents would NEVER send them to a public school with *gasp* BLACK children!


      it's not an issue for me of public schools vs private schools or even vs homeschool. ignorant racist parents will tend towards raising ignorant racist children without having to put them in a 99% white school. i don't see where you're trying to go with this.

      Did they have no social life because they were emo or were they emo cuz they had no social life?

      What I'm saying is that some people purposefully make things harder for themselves by thinking everyhting sucks instead of just enjoying what they's got. I spent most of high school just hanging out with friends and having a good time. Though this could explain why I had a D average in my classes.

      Anything's possible later in life, which is the point here, can't really go do things with people if I can't drive now can I? Though, not for CSonicGo, since he does drugs and has no social life either. (Edit: No to mention his only 'friends' slash rejects are transexual drama causers who got banned from pretty much every IRC channel i've been in with various doom users.)

  11. Not really. Yesterday evening lightning not only blasted the surge protector, but also the modem that was connected to it, rendering me to only use my satellite internet connection. Wanting to get my online gaming back, I took a trip to Best Buy and returned the modem that was covered in the 1 year warrenty thing by Dynex.

    Alright well, they didn't have any more internal ones, because all of the 20 they had in stock were all gone from the night before and this morning, apparently other people who use 56k for whatever has their modems busted as well. So, I got an external USB modem.

    Only problem is, when I try to connect, it would sometimes pause between sounds and no go any further for minutes at a time, and if somehow I did connect, the bit rate it'd show would be **********ly low, like 16.6 or 22.4 compared to my normal 48.0 or 50.2. To top that off, within 30 to 60 seconds, it'd disconnect because of a 'failed' connection. I used the cord and everything that came with it, and i'm guessing that the phone lines got fucked up somehow, because this happened the last time I got a modem and it blew due to lightning activity.

    But what I don't get is how it's giving me all these hassles through the phone lines. Is it the hardware that's bad? The fun never stops :/

  12. Sediment. Lots of it.
    Meaning, rock in the plumbing. So basically what we did to clear it out was attach a high pressure hose to the shower heads and blow it out through the faucets outside. It worked, but when we turned on the water valve for the house, the sediment came out, but apparently even more flooded IN.

    So what we think is happening after 4 consecutive hours is that the well is busted somehow and is pumping up rock. Ugh.

      We quite often have mineral sediment problems as well. My water is physically brown because of an iron experiment in my town. By the way my town used to be an industrial town at the turn of the century and there for the waters still effected. Hell we even have a lake officially called "Chemical Lake" We have to drag water bottles to the next town and use its public well for water. W e had to go through two hot water heaters because the water corroded the inside and left thick iron sediment in all the pipes. Come to think of it we can't do laundry on Monday nights because they flush the hundred year old pipes rotting underneath us. And to top it off my high school had a white shirt uniform. Thank god those days are over. They build a water purifier recently, but the water is still to gross tasting to drink.

      ....wish I had a well.

  13. For some obscure reason, UT2004 is locking up mid-game for me. How that is, I don't know, but what's really strange, is it seems to happen when I actually play, never when the bots go running around for even hours at a time. I've fully patched nortons, ut2004, windows, directx and shit. I highly doubt my CPU is overheating because it doesn't really seem to get that hot anyway (47 celcius).

    So I uninstalled and reinstalled the stupid thing, and my video drivers entirely. Still the same problem.

    One interesting note is it usually seems to happen when I jump, sometimes double jump. Hmm.

    Anyone have any suggestions before I reformat this piece of crap?

      Well, I figured it out. The video card is the error. It's not overheating, but somehow for it not to freeze, I have to underclock it by 20%. I don't know why, but doing that stopped the freezes as faras I know. I played a 10 minute game (Far longer than any i've been able to do before) on UT2004 without any problems. Thanks to Bloodshedder and Use3d for their help is figuring this out.

      Now all that remains to figure out is why it's not working on default settings, and what I can do about it.

    3. Bloodshedder

      Bloodshedder

      One option is to use an aftermarket video card cooler.

    4. insertwackynamehere

      insertwackynamehere

      my old video card used to do that in games that were video rendered. everything would just freeze and the last few seconds of sound would loop over and over. when i'd restart my comp, it would say there was a serious system error windows recovered from. I tried reinstalling drivers and everything. Eventually it got so bad that i'd boot up my system and the screen would be scrambled or i wouldnt be able to see anything at all. Finally i took my card out, blew some dust out of the agp slot and firmly reseated it. It worked! Everything was fine. Of course a short bit later I got a new video card anyways but w/e my fix worked apparently.

  14. So i'm basically at a crossraods now, and I can't decide which way to go. More to the point, I can't decide if I want Aguni, DD_133 or something else as my username. This rather sucks.I 'm looking for advice here, since I have this problem alot in anything online with the given choice. Once I decide on one thing I want the other because the first one isnt 100% satisfactory. D:

  15. So, while my dad is in Luxembourg with his boss, said boss' wife offers to have us (Me and my two siblings) stay with her family in China for a year. My parents say it's a perfect oppourtunity to broaden our knowledge of the world and culture and stuff. Learn the language too, or one of the different types of chinese they use, because China is one huge power point in buisiness. Or so i've been told.

    So far, I think this might be a good idea. I don't know yet which part of China they live in yet though. It would be interesting at the very least. It's not like i'm going to the coal mines...right?

    ATI Radeon 9600SE 256MB AGP

  19. So late last night, after several days of being sick, and it getting progressively worse, my dad took mom to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with kidney failure. We're lucky we got her there when we did because her blood pressure was critically high, she could have had a stroke hours later if we didn't. I don't know many details, but she had a blood transfusion earlier today, and the doctor said a few hours ago that it might be TTP or HUS. I'm not really sure what that is though.

    Crap this sucks, but at least it's only one kidney. =/

      Well, in the case of a transplant the doctors will test everyone in her immideate family for the most compatability, and that person would end up giving one up. Might be me, but hopefully one of the kidneys will start up again, and all that will be bypassed.

  21. So the day after christmas I try to use dialup, and it disconnects me from IRC, AIM, MSN, and any other form of communications across the internets. It doesn't physically disconnect, it just refuses to transmit any packets at all. So it says stuff like google.com is not found and whatnot. I've defragged, norton's antivirus scanned my system, ran spyware checks on microsoft antivirus and ad-aware, and its STILL doing things, and it only happened recently. wtf is the problem. I don't even know if this message will get through before it gatesifies me ;_;

      It sounds like the lines are crappy. Try disabling v90/92.

  22. Apparently, according to my homeschooling time schedule that delegates my days off and whatnot, I got winter break at the end last friday. Thing is, my mom wants me to go to college, so "You don't get a winter break because you need to work more to get into college". Im sitting there going "What?". She repeats, and I say "Well what if I don't want to go to college, and I think that many people who go to college get winter breaks as well.", so then she says "I'm going to make sure you're better than all the other retards who cheat their way to degrees.". Convo pretty much ends there since I decide to try to fathom what had just happened. But no, not having a winter break isn't good enough. I have to go clean the entire house, bake cookies (mm cookies), clean out the 1 bajillion bird cages, and then go to my workplace and organize the warehouse for the umpteenth time because my mom isn't happy with it, which will take at least a day to complete it the way SHE wants it (read: Practically inaccessable). I was told earlier we'd go and see The Chronicles of Narnia a couple weeks ago but now the chances of that happening are dim because my parents are leaving for Vegas after the 27th so I not only have school, but I must ALSO care for all the animals, my two younger siblings, and orders from customers to manage. Oh yeah, I forgot, and write a 15 chapter story before they get back.

    I shit you not. Another case where life stabs you both in the back and in the nuts.

      Yeah, aren't you a prime example?

  23. I take the California Achievement Test as part of my homeschooling packet thing, and I was above average my grade level in every field except Science (Which I expected to be low, due to barely even doing any of it) and Vocabulary. The average levels in the graph was 25-75 out of 100, science was 70, and vocabulary was 61. Gah. I probably should be happy I excelled at nearly everything (especially mathematics and spelling, which were both late 90s) but i'm a perfectionist. :(
