      And You'll Never Guess What Happened....

      5 years ago

      Shortly after that last journal entry, the unspeakable happened. I, Alex (aka Warbringer95), one of the least emotional/unfeeling people I've ever known, fell in love. Yeah. It might not sound too surprising for any of you, but if you really know me, like my family or close friends do, you'd be blown away. Lol.

      Well, Well, Well, Guess Who's Back

      6 years ago

      Contrary to popular opinion, I have not died. About 6 months ago, work got busy and internet time got severely limited. For whatever reason RvB fell by the wayside as gaming took over all time I had on the computer. Naturally, I wasn't going to hit the forums being behind as I was, just to dissappear again for days. Anyways, I'm back, and hopefully I'll be diving into LFTO in a week or so. In my next journal I'll chronicle my adventures while I was away. Hope not all of you gave up on me! See you all again in a few days.

      Back...finally

      6 years ago

      So I finally took care of a terrible little bugga' on my newest hard drive. I have to reinstall everything, but it's just nice to be back. The biggest part of SUCK in this is that I have to reinstall ALL my games. This wouldn't be so bad if more were on disc, but they are almost entirely on Steam, and my bandwidth blows hard, so big games like GRID, CoD 4, Empire: Total War, and Dead Space take forever to install. smiley2.gif

      The best part is that I think I finally solved a problem with the audio driver I had before which stopped me from running Bioshock, Far Cry 2, and the Zune software for some weird reason. Anyways, so you can feel my pain of installation armagedon, here's the infamous list (and I don't give a fuck if yours is bigger....6 months ago all but maybe ten of these games weren't owned) :

      The Left 4 Dead Survival Pack

      6 years ago

      The new Survival Mode=HARD. My team and I died on the 2nd tank. That was for a total time of 3.5 minutes, not even enough to get a bronze medal. And the Valve team made it through ten minutes. I don't know how....it's relentless and fast paced. One screw up, and the whole team could be dead; it's so quick, that you wouldn't even know or have time to blaim anyone for the screw up. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

      Flash Drive Gaming

      6 years ago

      I have a Sandisk 8 Gb Cruzer. It has U3 program launcher on it, with Steam on U3. So, does anyone have any idea how to run games from Steam on the flash drive? I'm thinking of putting small games, such as Half-Life, on it. With the way Steam runs games (straight from a folder containing all the games files), I'm thinking it's definitely possible, I just don't know how to do it. Any pointers?

    • Warbringer95

      Hard Drive

      6 years ago

      Well, my computer's new hard drive is installed and all my usual programs are already installed, along with, obviously, the OS. Unfortunately, that was the easy and faster part. Now I have ahead of me the absolutely monumental task of installing/downloading (via Steam or actual discs) ALL of my games, which is going to take forever. You can see what nightmare lies ahead of me by checking out my previous journal. It's times like this where I wish I had gone all the way when shopping for my last flash drive by getting the 16 gb. I have an 8 gb...not quite enough for a lot of games or 1 or 2 big ones. This is especially frustrating because, only being able to hook up one hard drive at once, I would have to load up the flash drive, then turn off comp, swap hard drives, the restart....repeat x 10.

      Unfortunately, that horrid plan isn't ruled out, because almost all those games are on Steam, and my bandwidth is only about 200 kb/s = slow. Anyways...I gotta stop my bitchin' and actually realize how privledged I am to have the awesome collection of games I have....coupled with the fact that about 95% of those games I have gotten in the last 3.5 months.

      Oh and Shmef, if you are listening/reading, is there a way to stop the annoying beep that happens everytime my comp has a system/program inquiry? I think my last hard drive did that a long time ago, but then stopped. smiley4.gif Leave a comment with an answer if you know. TY

      Upgrades

      6 years ago

      My comp is about to go from a pile of shit for gamers to something great; from not being able to play anything from the past 5 years to nearly anything I want. I also updated the games I'm playing. I literally have all but one of those games (Mirror's Edge will soon be owned by me). That doesn't mean I'm currently playing all of those. Some I haven't played in a while, most are from time to time, and the rest I will be playing when I upgrade my comp since it will now be able to handle them.

      I just bought Left 4 Dead. I was going to wait until my comp was upgraded, but its on sale on Steam. 50% off is something you don't pass up, especially when it's an awesome game with recently announced free DLC. Of those games, I play CounterStrike the most. The rest of my games aren't in the network. Here are all of them:

      World in Conflict
      Dawn of War - Original, Winter Assault, Dark Crusade, and Soulstorm
      Half Life: Source
      Half Life - Opposing Force and Blue Shift
      Half Life 2 - Original, Episode 1, and Episode 2
      World of Goo
      Dead Space
      Halo (PC)
      Need For Speed - High Stakes, Hot Pursuit, Porsche Unleashed, Most Wanted, and Carbon
      Battle for Middle Earth
      Star Wars - Republic Commando, Empire at War, Force Commander, Knights of the Old Republic, Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast, and Battlefront
      AudioSurf
      Team Fortress 2
      Left 4 Dead
      Portal
      Deathmatch Classic
      Bioshock
      Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
      Company of Heroes - Original and Opposing Fronts
      Garry's Mod
      Day of Defeat: Source
      CounterStrike: Source
      Max Payne - Original and The Fall of Max Payne
      X-Com - 5 of Them (too lazy to list them)
      Ghost Recon - Original, Desert Siege, Island Thunder, Advanced Warfighter, Advanced Warfighter 2
      SimCity 4

      Yeah, you're jealous. smiley0.gif

      To update this list with recent additions:

      Call of Duty 4
      Mass Effect
      Mirror's Edge
      Crysis

      Another update:

      Empire Total War
      Rome Total War Gold

      Hey Hey Hey...It's Fat Albert!

      7 years ago

      As a disclaimer: This post has nothing to do with Fat Albert.

      So, got some new pics here. One, very disturbing picture, is my contribution to the Gary Busey pic trend. I did it in like 5 minutes on Photoshop, so cut me some slack. The rest are all anime pics for those who are into that type of stuff and miss my old collections of hot pics that I used to put up. All of them are from the artist, Tony Taka. He is amazing, but beware; if you want to check out his work, it gets hardcore. So I recommend the Shining Wind art he did, which is awesome.

      EDIT: I just added two home-made pics based off of the hilarious Robot Chicken Star Wars Specials. Go Seth Green!

      Yes - he'd be in the main thread, but he doesn't have a sponsorship (though, until he improves his sentence capitalization, I wouldn't give him one). He's a member of the LFTO group, and he's trying to become active.

      More importantly, though, putting my brother into the role of one of the newbs gives me much more cannon fodder for jokes than anyone else. Somehow, it's much easier to poke fun at one's brother than anyone else. I hope to get one or two unique jokes out of the relationship, too. smiley1.gif

      Join the group. Just because you can't play the Halo games doesn't mean we can't field a PC team.

      After all - the 'Tournaments' is now a site feature - and after next week sponsors can start their own.

      Ah. My trials are CS4, so that old code definitely wouldn't help.

      Now, when you say "Educational", what exactly do you mean? Is your copy limited to noncommercial use?

    • TheRecreator

      6 years ago

      That was the plan from the start - the webcomic idea actually came after, I think (2 hours of EE homework makes Rec a dull boy).

      I've already started assembling all the avatars on a group image file, but I don't think I'll start work on the final touches until I've worked through all the remaining avatar requests.

      You say you have Illustrator? Can your serial number be used on multiple computers? smiley8.gif

      I also just finished my work. I'll upload your revised avatar shortly.

      As I've already covered with everyone else who requested pants, Rich Burlew did not include expressly identifiable "pants" in his art design, so I won't, either. Not even lawyers wearing suits get pants. Nevertheless, support for me adding pants to my artstyle is mounting, so I figure if you guys can get a decent length petition going, then I'll reconsider my stance (read: I'm lazy, and I'd rather not have to draw pants and re-angle them for every frame I do, but if enough people care, I might change my mind).

      As for the shoes, I could make them checkered, but the result may be visually cluttered. Is that okay? Also, what background color would you want for the checkers?

      If you compare it side-by-side with the other avatars I made, you'll find that it's about a dozen or so pixels taller than the others. If there are any tweaks you would like me to make, let me know.

    • TheRecreator

      Can you tell me what hair color and style you have? I plan on having a little hair poking out from under the hood of your avatar.

      Also, what kind of laptop (read: what color)?

      Hi <<avatar>>!

      At LFTO Networking, we invited group members (just like you <<avatar>>) to create a logo for ourselves. We'll use it for our own merch - t-shirts, coffee mugs, you name it.

      We'd love it if you could check the designs out and vote! We're contacting you personally <<avatar>> because here at LFTO Networking, we believe in that personal touch. After all, that's why you signed up on <<signUpDate>>, isn't it <<avatar>>? And hey: why not invite <<option::listFriendAvatar01;listFriendAvatar02;listFriendAvatar03>> to join?

      Please check in to LFTO Networking and vote for your fave design.

      We hope to see you <<option::"soon";"dead";"in prison">>, <<avatar>>. Keep it real!

      I love story line....RPGs and strategy are my favorites. I'm not a huge FPS fan unless it's Star Wars or half life. I tend to play FPS but usually only once....even games like Bioshock I could only play once, AND I don't have a 360. I'm a PC/Wii gamer.

      I'd like to play Dead Space but I'm not going to buy it because I'll only end up playing through it once....and I can't justify spending money on games I only play once.
