Dual Monitors 
Rocks for steam, you can play whatever game on the main monitor and have all your steam chat and community windows on the other, its great :)

Fuck you, I don't use explorer. Windows uses it for other things anyway - like the import driver for my digital camera. 
Chill, Winston 
ok?

It began happening a second time, and I correlated it to using the import drivers for my canon powershot s50.

Don't use japanese imports. It's a rootkit! Honest american drivers only.

It seems it tries to protect some files.

I remember having an experience trying to find drivers for my OEM SB Live soundcard. The installer from creative.com wouldn't install since the detection routine found that the card was an OEM product. (I lost the CD.) So I stalled the installer and found the temporary files and copied them over to another place to do the install. :)

Some companies seem so touchy about their drivers. 
I Appreciate Help 
Patronizing condescension doesn't get as warm a response. This seems like a perfectly fair policy. 
Atom 
Wow 
That looks truly awesome. I want to fly a spaceship through there.


Lun: Sorry, no offense meant. :(
Did the deleting help? 
Impostor Billboards. 
Hmm. That atom sent me on a weird surfing spree.
The tech it uses has been used in old videogames when the hardware was too slow for real 3d polygons.

I remember being in Italy as a kid and there was this arcade hall that had this space shooter game where you sat inside, and I was too young to really play. Might have been 1984 or 1985... I remember the big death animation explosion and how the sounds made the seats rumble. I wish I could find out the name by then. My parents later told me that we had to take another route to the beach so I wouldn't see the arcade hall and want to play the games.

Oh how has everything changed since then.

I remember my friend had a C64 and a small black and white TV connected to it. We went downstairs to borrow Turbo Tape from an older boy to get some game to load.

There should be a post icon with a big teardrop from one eye.

It's not the games per se but the sense of wonder of something new. Perhaps all this technology we are using now will look ancient in 23 years as well... so it's not worth too much hassle in comparing the minute details of this or that clockspeed and pipeline width.

Experiences are things that leave memories. And it's important to get out and do various things and get those experiences. I so remember the beaches and ruins and catacombs and the tap that poured water to a pool when it was not attached to anything and a million other things too - but these things haven't really outdated. They're still there and if I have kids, I could go and visit them and say "your daddy was here 35 years ago". It's perplexing in a way, how things age at different rates. 
That's Amazing 
reminds me of electric sheep ( http://www.electricsheep.org ), another fractal-ey thing.

Averaging Gradius 
There's a lot I could write about games with discrete countable states, games with uncountable states, and in-between games where the uncountable states are really clustered onto a simpler graph of meta-states. But it's late and I wouldn't be coherent, but here's a cool video project that implies some of those ideas.

It also makes me think of that Trackmania video where they have thousands of cars playing out all possible routes through the course simultaneously.

Small Episode - Deja Vu 
OK people, Ive made a six map mini episode using quoth. I have sent a copy to kell. So far I havent incorporated skyboxes (but will) and it probably needs a bit of tweaking here and there. I need some playtesting done, but dont want to host a final version online yet cause obviously its not finished. If anyone thinks theyre up for the job, then please email me and I will send you a copy, or leave your email address where I can see it on this messageboard and I will send you a copy. It uses a base theme mostly, lost of quoth demons on the later maps and kell's fury texture wad.

My address: trowbridge.richard@googlemail.com

Jolly Good! 
RickyT23 
Don't c+p post in multiple threads please.

My email is in my profile - I'd be happy to take a look, always did like the fury set. 
Sorry 
Hope you like levels. Skyboxes are coming, also more secrets, and anything else worth improving on. Any ideas? Only dv5.bsp uses fury set, cause at that point you are sent to another planet! 
JOLLY JOLLY GOOD

Interesting (speed-) Mapping Idea 
Again originated in the Doom community:
The 32in24 projects. The idea is that one mapper creates a basic layout (for a DM map) with gameplay (item placement), then another takes over and details the map. Each one has 12 hours to complete his job, so in the end there are (theoretically) 32 new maps, given there are enough participants, after one day.
Now, of course it would have to be a little different with Quake. I'd say each mapper had 24 hours for his part, and no fixed amount of maps.

From the Doomworld thread:
Layout Rules: [...]
- Create a basic layout, with direct focus on gameplay. Disregard detail almost completely.
- Must place items, including Player 1 start, At least 8 DM starts, and weapons. Must also include exit. DO NOT FLAG ITEMS MULTIPLAYER.

Detailer Rules: [...]
- Call a map in the 32in24 thread (when calling, check to see if anyone else is working on the map before you start)
- Try to preserve gameplay as faithfully as possible; consult layout mapper if you want to make changes to layout/items
- Build outwards whenever possible, especially in small areas.
- Impassible lines are your friends! We don't like bumping into stuff :(
- Make the map look damn sexy

Cool Quake Pixel Art

Thank you! 
Well 
What do you expect from a laser-eyed penguin who's got a crazy man's hand stuck up in his butt and his name misspelled.

Which reminds me that I should watch the Red Dwarf episodes I haven't seen yet. :D 
Lol Frib 
Electric Fish FTW!!! 
Heh... 
reminds me i made a couple of fake isometric quake screenshots a few years ago, but they were lost in a hard drive crash.
