      The Cabbie

      A successful engineer flew to Vegas for the weekend to gamble. He lost the shirt off his back, and had nothing left but a quarter and the second half of his round trip ticket. If he could just get to the airport he could get himself home. So he went out to the front of the casino where there was a cab waiting. He got in and explained his situation to the cabbie. He promised to send the driver money from home, he offered him his credit card numbers, his drivers license number, his address, etc. but to no avail.

      The cabbie said (adopt appropriate dialect), "If you don't have fifteen dollars, get the hell out of my cab!" So the businessman was forced to hitchhike to the airport and was barely in time to catch his flight.

      One year later the engineer, having worked long and hard to regain his financial success, returned to Vegas and this time he won big. Feeling pretty good about himself, he went out to the front of the casino to get a cab ride back to the airport. Well who should he see out there, at the end of a long line of cabs, but his old buddy who had refused to give him a ride when he was down on his luck. The engineer thought for a moment about how he could make the guy pay for his lack of charity, and he hit on a plan.

      The engineer got in the first cab in the line, "How much for a ride to the airport," he asked? "Fifteen bucks," came the reply. "And how much for you to go down on me (oral sex) during the way?" "What?! Get Out, out of my cab, you scum." The engineer got into the back of each cab in the long line and asked the same questions, with the same result - getting kicked out of each taxi.

      When he got to his old friend at the back of the line, he got in and asked "How much for a ride to the airport?" The cabbie replied "fifteen bucks."The engineer said "O.K." and off they went. Then, as they drove slowly past the long line of cabs the engineer gave a big smile and a big thumbs up.

      So I can't find the Windows version of the same version of Hamachi that I'm using...so we'll just have to cross our fingers and hope it cooperates today.

      Any type of instant messaging service would be helpful. Got an AIM/YIM/MSN account?

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      Yep. I'm going to try to make sure we're using the same version of Hamachi; that might help. Should that fail, we can use an internet server, but I'd prefer to avoid that.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      We will go without ballisitics because I don't want to spend five hours sending it to you.

      My tests with hamachi have shown it has a few problems. My friend wasn't able to connect to my UT server, which doesn't bode well for multiplayer.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      Let's say around 2-3 Eastern, 11-12 Pacific.

      Will this be with or without Ballistic Weapons? I need to adjust the serverpackages so it doesn't try to send BW if we're not going to be using it.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      Sounds most delicious. Pacific time here. Hamachi is still needed, but that's a grand three minutes that's impossible to go wrong.

    • ThrynnMaster

      Shame. Oh well.

      Let me know if you ever feel like trying again.

      Nope, not the LOL LIMEWIRE. An animation I haven't seen...it's...more suggestive.

      I guess that's one benefit of digital downloads. Wouldn't really help me, since I would just torrent the DVD and reinstall that way, since I've already shelled out cash for the game, I have no qualms about illegally downloading something I have legally purchased. Just did that with StarCraft since my BroodWar disc is scratched just enough to let the computer figure out what it is, but too much to let it install properly.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      UT 2k4s mishmash of a directory in a Steam directory? That sounds like a recipe for disaster. I'm glad I bought the DVD version...despite having to tweak the game heavily to get the sound working.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      Well, I can understand rust. I just played StarCraft again after a two-three year lapse.

      And oh damn. I just realized after looking at the link I sent you, but they've updated Ballistic Weapons. I've been using the one made in 2008 with the bonus pack, version 2.10....well, guess I'll download the newer one and see if it's still as awesome. Will definitely have to fix a few things. For now, just use whichever you downloaded.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      ...I'm honestly doubting whether or not you've ever played UT now. The unreal engine was practically built so that people could tweak the gamepaly with mutators. Like persistent Low gravity, only a certain gun, instagib shock rifles, health regeneration...all mutators that came with the game itself.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      A .rar is a compressed file like a .zip.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      BW is interesting as it's both a mutator and a mod. You can select BW gametypes, or add it in as a mutator in other game types. It also has its own set of graphical settings, which makes it more...Fun.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      If it's a umod, there should be some Utility that came with UT to install it. If it's a zip, there'll be folders that make it fairly obvious what goes where...I think. Dunno, I'm on a Mac, and installing stuff for UT is a pain since I can either screw around in the application package or go the system library and put stuff there. On Windows, I think there's an easier method..but I honestly don't know.

      There'll probably be a text file somewhere detailing the installation process. They're usually nice about that sort of thing.

      When I said serverpackges, it means I've got into the UT preferences and set it so that if I host a game and someone connects to it without certain files, it sends those files. Meaning, if I use a custom model and you don't have it, if I include commands to send the model, it sends you the model instead of refusing to allow you to join the game.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      [link=http://www.moddb.com/mods/ballistic-weapons]Here[link] for BW, I think...as for the skins...meh, somewhere on skincity. But also in serverpackages, probably. Don't worry about them; just let me know when would be a good time to try to get it working.

      !!SCIENCE!!

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      I will try. If you don't have Hamachi, I recommend it as it can help with lag issues. I also recommend the Ballistic Weapons packs as I no longer play without them. UT2k4 is a different game from the original UT, but all of the default weapons are downright terrible. So I add in delayed health regeneration, weapons with reloadable magazines, recoil, more physics, and it's like Call of Duty meets Unreal Tournament except more awesome.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      Probably not for a year or two; despite the horrible GPU this computer has, I really like it. But a new computer would just let Steam itself run, not necessarily the games themselves. But then there's always Wine and BootCamp and whatnot.

      Dunno...we'll see. I tend to prefer older games. Newest game I play is Minecraft. Everything else is Unreal Tournament, GBA games, Dwarf Fortress or PS2 games (I WILL FINISH FINAL FANTASY X THIS SUMMER).

    • ThrynnMaster

      Need two things: random group and someone to provoke me. She was rude, and I saw it as returning the favor.

      ...sadly, no. I want Steam, as I want to play Portal/Killing Floor, but I'm still using the same old MacBook, which is too old for Steam.

    • ThrynnMaster

      8 years ago

      A completely random invite to a completely random group that I knew completely nothing about, so I decided to have a little fun since she blocked after I called her out on deleting my comment subtly asking why I was invited to said group.
