@Wipqozn trys to work out what the joke is
> Wit test failed
 
I need help coming up with a Legacy Name in SWOTR. :/
 
Eric.
 
That's a shitty last name
Legacies are like character last names. Shared across any char I make.
 
EricSON
 
(Can also be displayed as The _______ Legacy - a guildmate is The Reagan Legacy)
 
12:05 AM
Officer Snuggles.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz And you can't use your real last name because?
 
Poppy-pop
 
No one would know it's your real name.
 
@John Ummmm... no thanks. Not in an MMO.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Well when you put in like that...
 
12:06 AM
Mr. Fizzles
 
Joyoda
Nah, too much like yoda.
 
How about: dawwwww!
I think Snuggles is the best one.
You're not taking these ideas seriously are you. :(
 
@RonanForman Why would he? They're from- shudders -the internet!
 
I should try to work in a lab where they use cocaine :P
or at least rotate through one
 
Wooo 5 people online
 
12:12 AM
@GnomeSlice Where?
 
Metal Drift
 
@GnomeSlice Ah.
I noticed that you invited me to that group.
Is the demo any good?
I got a lot a games from people, so I don't feel like spending $10 on another one ATM.
Hm. How can I upgrade Wine to 1.3.19? The latest version in the repos is 1.3.15.
 
Wow... You can "play" the Steam Sales... reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/nzu69/…
 
@WilliamHilsum That's....essentially what I did, on a much smaller scale.

Q: Are the Necromancer's Golems of any use whatsoever in Diablo 2?

Marty WallaceThe class I play most commonly in Diablo 2 is the Necromancer. I've always run the same build (below), but now I want to start trying some alternative builds to mix it up a bit and add some extra interest to my next playthrough. I generally have stuck to this or similar: Raise Skeleton (20) Sk...

 
12:21 AM
(As in, my operation was not that expansive)
People wanted coal, I traded coal. I got games.
Or rather, I wanted games, and people were willing to accept coal. :)
 
@John give details! How much did you spend, and what did you walk away with?
Just added up my purchases... I spent so much more than I thought I did :/ and... I didn't even buy any expensive games, just many! ... I wouldn't of thought of this, but, I am out of touch with games, don't really know what is popular/what people would want
 
@WilliamHilsum I spent nothing, and I ended up with Hacker Evolution from Mordi, Terraria from Ian, Frozen Synapse from LessPop, DoD and DoD:S from Dave. Come to think of it, all but one of those were flat out gifts. SE has a lot of very nice people. :)
But yeah, I'm happy.

Q: Steam item giveaway/trading thread

Dave McClellandWith Steam now giving away games as part of the Holiday Sale, a lot of us are bound to end up with extra copies of games.

@WilliamHilsum And in case you missed it, this question has totally been the place to be for the past couple weeks.
Just updated Wine. Really hope it doesn't break anything.
 
@John That's for sure... @ArdaXi gifted CS:S
Thanks, haven't seen that
Ohh... thanks for that... hopefully I am not to late!
 
Well, this bites. :(
 
@RavenDreamer ???
 
12:34 AM
First world problems: I can't call the bank to tell them to let me use paypal with my debit card so I can buy FRAPs until TOMORROW!!!
 
@RavenDreamer Do you need it that urgently?
 
FRAPS is... really overpriced.
 
@Ullallulloo I don't need it urgently, but I was hoping I could do some recording tonight.
@ArdaXi Compared to what?
 
Just... being itself.
Compared to the freeware it competes with definitely.
 
What freeware does it compete with?
Because if you have a suggestion, I'm all ears.
 
12:36 AM
@RavenDreamer Itself? :P
 
> Expect Failure
 
@RavenDreamer Hiiiiiiiiii
 
Blargh how do I quote stuff again?
 
Most games have better recording tools included anyway.
 
@Ullallulloo But what if I want to record something LONGER THAN 30 SECONDS?!
 
12:37 AM
@John A space after the >
 
@ArdaXi No. No most games do not.
 
@ArdaXi Ah thanks.
 
@RavenDreamer Most games, not all games.
 
@ArdaXi Anyway? Don't change the topic, what freeware were you talking about :(
 
@Mana Hi. I'm getting dragged into an argument with @ArdaXi. What about you?
 
12:37 AM
@RavenDreamer It's hardly an argument.
 
@RavenDreamer I know, I was joking mostly. I have seen people edit multiple 30 second vids together though.
 
> Latest stable version is 0.7.6 (from June.22,2006 )
Latest stable version is 0.7.6 (from June.22,2006 )
 
@RavenDreamer Just finished drumming for an hour, now I'm working on my video game.
 
@RavenDreamer Err, so?
 
@Mana I wanted to be making a recording of my game, but I can't buy Fraps until tomorrow at least. :(
Though... actually...
 
I bet I could beat my game in <30 seconds.
 
@ArdaXi His point is that he thinks not being worked on lately means that it's no good.
 
@RavenDreamer I beat your game in around 35 seconds during my best run
 
@John Err...
 
let me try to speedrun it again
 
12:40 AM
It has been worked on lately.
Most recent build was late 2010.
 
@Mana So everyone's seen it except me? :(
 
@John More like, it not being worked on means if something goes wrong, I'm not likely to be able to troubleshoot it.
@John I gave it to @FallenAngelEyes and @Mana
 
@ArdaXi Still 2 years ago, and still not a stable version.
 
I have no problems giving it to you too
 
FRAPS has no problem selling instable versions.
 
12:41 AM
@RavenDreamer I don't know freeware that can compete (hopefully steamworks will do something soon in line with their screenshot tool!) ... but, You can always run the game in windowed mode, then use any number of tools such as Fast Stone Capture - faststone.org/FSCaptureDetail.htm - not free, but, I find it the most useful tool on my machine.. and has a fully working trial
 
Do you have the XNA framework installed?
 
@RavenDreamer Probably somewhere. I have access to several machines running varying versions of different OSes.
 
If you want to pay $35 for what you can get for free, be my guest, but for what it does, it is definitely over-priced.
If it were more in the range of $10 or something I might actually buy it.
 
@RavenDreamer I lied, one minute 30 seconds is more realistic.
 
@RavenDreamer More likely, seeing as Taksi is open-source.
 
12:46 AM
@ArdaXi I mean, I could get it for free, if money was the issue.
 
Hey all!
 
Hey, it's the guy I gave the stuff for the thing!

@RedriderX Hi
 
@RavenDreamer Hey do you have a copy of Magika?
 
12:48 AM
@RedriderX A spare copy, or do I own it? (I own it, I do not have a spare copy)
 
I have a coupon for it... that's about all I have.
 
No worries!
 
I was just wondering if someone wanted it. I don't plan on using it.
 
@RavenDreamer YOUR JUMPING PHYSICS ARE DUMB

Browsing my Downloads folder, I find "RainbowSpaceDonkeyEscape". Wut.
 
12:49 AM
@Mana I KNOW! IT'S ON MY LIST!
@John I wish I could take credit. :P
 
@John Wow, you should really screen your downloads.
 
@RavenDreamer I already know that's not your game. :P
 
@Mana >Position Subsystem:

-	Add in “positionMap” array that keeps a record of where important features are (floors for checkGround, ladders for ifLadder, doors for ifDoor, etc.).

@RedriderX The weird part is, I think I downloaded that on purpose...
 
See, @Mana? First bullet point, even!
 
12:50 AM
 
@Ullallulloo You beat me to showing the weirdness!
 
@RavenDreamer :( Don't fix midair jumping, it's the speedrunning trick
 
Some of the dialog in TOR is amazing.
 
@Ullallulloo What was I thinking?!?
 
@Mana That's a separate issue. I list it under "Design Better Levels"
 
12:51 AM
This Alderaanian noble gives this long speech about how his society is crumbling at it's foundation. There are vermin, insects rooting about underfoot, that must be squashed, etc. etc.
I'm expecting a quest to weed out some kind of corruption...
nope. Actual insects.
 
@RavenDreamer FYI, your game does not currently run under Wine.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz SOUNDS FUN
 
Shucks, I realize @GnomeSlice isn't here. I wanted to complain to him about something.
 
@Mana IT IS.
@Mana HELP ME THINK OF A LEGACY NAME
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Iiiiiit's Reeeeaaaal
 
12:52 AM
@John To be expected, I suppose.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Crushing bugs with a lightsaber?
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz I think I want to make mine: "Sabrewraith"
@RedriderX Sniper Rifle for him!
 
@arda Taksi is perhaps a good argument FOR paying money for Fraps. That thing is definitely not a joy to use.
 
@RavenDreamer Keep in mind, 1) Playing an Agent now, and 2) it's going to have to be used on all of your characters.
@RedriderX Vibroknife in my case! Imperial Agent. Stabby Stabby.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah, but you can hide it! !!
 
12:54 AM
@RavenDreamer Wow
 
I mean, once you do lock it onto a game it works mostly fine.
 
I also have a rifle, in theory, but it only gets used for pistolwhipping.
 
@RavenDreamer Okay my best speedrun is 51 seconds. Optimal is probably ~42
 
@RavenDreamer But where's the fun in that?
 
btw scifi.se has a real nice set of fonts. I'm now envious :D
 
12:55 AM
@Mana I admire your dedication.
 
@RavenDreamer www.kongregate.com/games/BGamesSite/insectonator?referrer=Ullallulloo
 
I still maintain that I need better levels.
 
@LessPopMoreFizz Damn it, I have all these Real Estate songs stuck in my head.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz Is Energy very different than Heat/ammo? From what I understand, they're basically the same (regen faster the more you have, etc)
 
@RavenDreamer Yeah, Energy is more granular
 
12:56 AM
@John But yeah. Does XNA in general work under wine?
 
But it works pretty similarly
 
Actually, I guess it'd have to, if you're playing Terraria atm.
 
@RavenDreamer I'm attempting to make it work for Terraria.... apparently it's hit or miss.
 
@Mana Right now I have johnJacobJingleHiemer stuck in my head.
 
Aha! Well, maybe if you get Terraria working, my game will also work!
 
12:57 AM
@RavenDreamer I'm not actually playing Terraria yet.
 
Apparently there's a pretty significant Empire bias, in terms of relative faction population.
 
@RavenDreamer Maybe...no worries though, I've already got the VM fired up.
 
@LessPopMoreFizz ?
@John Please don't expect much.
 
@RavenDreamer Heheh ok.
 
@Mana WHY DID I MAKE LEVEL TWO SO HARD?!
 
12:59 AM
@raven if you're using xna you might as well see how much work would be reqd to port to mono... I dunno tbh, but you could easily bake something native for ALL the platfroms if it wasn't too complicated.
 
@RavenDreamer Energy tends to use a lot of smaller numbers. Things will regen 2 or 3 energy at a time. and cost 8 energy. Heat/Ammo tend to be bigger chunks IIRC
 
@RavenDreamer it's only hard because your character doesn't friggin' jump all the way if he collides into the ground while in mid-air
 
@badp I'm not familiar with what mono is.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Ah. Actually, that '?' was wondering if you had heard about the population imbalance, but thanks for more detail!
 
Foss implementatiin of c#
 
@RavenDreamer Aaah, Yeah, that's what I'm hearing/seeing. Part of the reason I'm glad on Veela.
 
1:01 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz What's special about Veela? (Aside from all the Harry Potter references)
 
and the ms il thingadongdong in general
 
@badp Hm. As is, I'm using a lot of XNA. Services, Components, and the Spritebatch, mostly.
Also, why must the Jedi Consular's "Project" suck so much compared to "Shock"? I don't think it should be classified as an "instant" if you can't do anything during the 3 sec animation.
 
@RavenDreamer Starfleet Dental is the goon megaguild, and it's republic side on veela.
 
I think I'm going to go level my Sith Sorc for awhile (I'm on Powerlord's server, but have never run into him).
Cya!
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz So you are protected by a fleet of dentists?
 
1:07 AM
@RedriderX No, he's fighting a fleet of dentists.
 
@RavenDreamer What server is that?
 
@RavenDreamer Oops, I'm not that up on Star Wars, sorry.
 
@LessPop_MoreFizz We're on Space Slug
 
Well, now that I've revealed my deep, dark secret, I've got to go, bye all.
 
@RedriderX bye

Out of games to play?  Looking for a deal?  Me too!

This is the first in a continuing set of (hopefully) weekly posts by me, where I’ll introduce you all to some great indie games for as cheap as possible.

This week’s game: Octopede

Octopede is a reinvention of the basic principles of the classic Snake with a neat digital twist.  The player can move in eight directions around the play area, collecting data that is used to lengthen the Octopede’s tail.  Every eight segments of tail can be ‘cached’, which increases the score multiplier, but means that those tail pieces …

got to the motherboard producers site and try to find a Qualified Vendor's List (QVL) and make sure your other parts are on it

Q: Crysis 2 activation on Steam

soulBitI'm thinking about picking up a copy of Crysis 2 on PC, and saw it for £8 in my local supermarket (a lot cheaper than on Origin) - I would love to use this on Steam instead, so can I activate the disk copy on my Steam account, or will I need to add this as a "non steam game" and therefore lose ou...

 
@Blem I'll check that out. Thank you.
 
@Tristan you should at least be able to find one for ram
 
I found one for hardware and ram
 
When I made my first computer i did not do that and bought some expensive ram where the numbers matched what i needed, after about ½ a year my computer was very unstable and i found out my ram was not on the QVL, I bought some cheap once that where and it fixed my problem, that being said just because some hardware is not on the list does not mean it wont work, just that if it is on the list they have tested it
 
They have similar items but not the exact one I selected... So I guess if I was too worried about it, I could swap

You could also mail the hardware producer if they might know if it is compatible even though its not on the QVL
well time to get some lunch, talk to you later
 
Thanks for the help.

Q: Is there an easy way to identify rest areas in swtor?

NickIt seems like in other MMOs the rest areas are very easy to find - usually the 'inns' or the entirety of a large friendly city. In SWTOR I have been having trouble identifying such areas and have been wondering if there is an easy way to identify where they are, or find them in general. For exam...

 
I'd like to play these games but I don't seem to know what to do .. I downloaded one of them, it's a .zip file . there are two txt files and two .zzt files in it. Anyone knows how it works?
(Hello @all)
 
it looks like you need to get the game autofish.net/video_games/creation/zzt/zutil.html
 
@Gigili You need the original game.
ZZT is an ANSI character-based video game, created in 1991 by Tim Sweeney of Epic Games (then Potomac Computer Systems which became Epic Megagames in 1992), who later designed Unreal. It remains a popular DOS game creation system. ZZT itself is not an acronym for anything; its title was simply chosen so it would always appear at the very bottom of newsgroup listings. However, it was later jokingly mentioned by Sweeney as being short for Zoo of Zero Tolerance, which has mistakenly become a popular belief. ZZTs graphics were obsolete before it was even created; it used the same style of...
 
@ArdaXi Aha, thank you. Wow, DOS.. Means impossible to play on Linux, right?
 
@Gigili There are plenty of engines that are cross-platform, see the Other programs section.
