      I logged in again to check this place out. I don't recognize it anymore. It's nice to come back every once in a while and remember though.

      It's been two years since my last post. Times are still tough, just in other ways. I'd give anything to go back two years. Lots of mistakes I could fix. Regret, reflection, and remorse - the price we pay for living.

      I don't know when I'll be back again, but for those that read this I wish you the best, and I hope you'll do the same for me.

      So, Mountain Dew has started a new sweepstakes for Halo: Reach.... I'm sure you have probably seen the Halo themed bottles/cans/Doritos. Those specially marked items have codes you can redeem for entries into a drawing for prizes.

      What's different about this sweepstakes is you can enter by yourself, or form your own "Noble Team" and pool your resources. Up to 6 people form a team and the captain can choose which prize to enter into the sweepstakes for with each code. The benefit of being on a team is that teams can enter into the sweepstakes together and if one of your codes win you all win.

      I have created a team called "Rooster Teeth". I need 5 more Mountain Dew drinkers to join me and contribute to the team. To signup, send me a message with your first name and email and I'll invite you to the team. PLEASE BE SOMEONE WHO IS GOING TO DRINK MOUNTAIN DEW AND CONTRIBUTE CODES TO THE TEAM!

      Once you're signed up via the link I send you, you can login to the website and contribute codes to the team. Once the team is full we can have others form their own teams (Rooster Teeth 2, or whatever you like) and post here if we win anything! If I get any public codes such as ones given away in the Mountain Dew newsletter, I will post them here for everyone to use no matter what team you're on.

      Let me know if you have any questions and good luck to us all! =)

    • New 360? Heck yeah!

      9 years ago

      sniperfidy

      So, it looks like I could possibly get the new 360 for free or next to nothing.

      How is this possible, you ask?
      I'll tell you!

      Gamestop is currently running a promotion where you trade in your old version and accessories towards the new one.

      What I would be looking at is:

      Old Xbox + 1 controller - $100
      60GB Hard drive - $35
      WiFi Adapter - $40 (Originally got it for free!)
      Additional Wireless controller - $25
      4 Games for $25 apiece - $100
      --------------------------------------------------
      $300 total towards new Xbox

      The new Xbox comes with a new controller, built in Wifi, a 250GB Hard drive, and minimum 1yr warranty (My old Xbox is out of warranty)

      Decisions, decisions... this is an especially cool offer since money is tight. 'Spose I'll talk to my brother about it.

      She was trying to get details on everything you told me in my comments, asking you all the "what if" questions and what not.

      Yeah, Cheryl's IT guys at work wanna take a look at it and see if they can do something about it. One of them knows computers (obviously) very well, but according to Cheryl he said he specifically deals with the hard drives, internal and external, so he's gonna take a go at it and see if we can get that info.

    • VocalDrummer

      What's up homie. Just wanted to say thanks so much for all the help you've been giving me on this hard drive issue.

      We took it to BB customer service yesterday, and the guy said that the little humming sound indicates that the hard drive (or head drive, or head case, or something like that, I can't remember) was cracked, and that to salvage our information, we'd have to basically ask them to rebuild it, which would be around (according to him) 1700 dollars. For now, we can't afford that, but at least we know it may still be possible.

      Thanks again for your help Ray, I so very much appreciate it. If I get any Gold codes for XBL, I'll let you know so you can have them or something, since I don't have any real way of paying you back for your help.

      Sorry to bother you but this is the code that i got
      W:0000-0008
      X:0000-F001
      Y:30A8-4840
      Z:0000-0000

      I know I wasn't banned but was wondering if you knew if it implied that my internet connection was too slow or something else.

    • VocalDrummer

      9 years ago

      Had to order everything online since our local BB wasn't carrying them. They finally got here, but unfortunately it's still not working, just making the same humming sound it did before. I think unless there's a way to further take it apart to try to salvage the information, i'm shiz outta luck, but I do appreciate your help on it, more than I can possibly say.

      Yeah. They really do. It's funny that they're all for equal rights, but we can't call them anything other than African American or we're politically incorrect and deserve to "get a cap busted in our white asses."

      Yeah I had just gotten a new elite (the hard drive was the reason I got it, and it ended up being corrupted and unusable smiley4.gif ) and like 2 weeks later they announced the new one. I raged.

    • VocalDrummer

      9 years ago

      Hey man, I don't know when you'll get this, or even if you'll get it today, but is there any brands of external hard drive that you can recommend? Something that, as you put it, isn't "crap?"

      I'm leaving in 3 hours to head out, and Best Buy is about the only place open today (which I prefer since they have a cool 3D tv there), so if there's anything you can recommend, could you let me know?

      It's called "SimpleTech" by Fabrik.

      I managed to get the exterior casing off, but other than that, I wouldn't know what to do next. Before I did that, I tried all the USB ports on the computer, as someone else had suggested.

      I don't know what else to do, and I'm not sure I want to take anymore of this thing apart by myself.

      The one I ordered just would not let the pins push through the motherboard's holes, so I ended up using a spare one that my brother had laying around. Not really sure what brand or anything. It also has push pins, though, but they pushed through easier.

      yeah we could probably do with out some things, but we never spend more money than we have unless there was some big even that required more money than planned. Such as the move, when my car broke down and cost us 400 dollars that we still owe his mom. Right now we are fine, we just need to go grocery shopping. we both worked full time the past few weeks which gave us a nice pay check, hence the traveling to see his family and the hookah. and it was a cheap hookah.. not one of those 150 dollar ones.

      Don't really have a specific question, just wanting everyone to share benchmarks, tips/advice, programs, specs, etc.


      We occasionally go through a day or two when people will post specs and OC links in the General Discussion thread, but honestly, nobody really cares. Most threads like that have died quickly in the past, so we haven't really spent a lot of time maintaining them. Again, if you run across a specific question, feel free to post a thread about it.

      You might try the PC gaming forum. I don't frequent that one, so I can't speak to its appropriateness, but there may be more of a conversational use for an overclocking thread there.

    • PrincessNybo

      9 years ago

      In reply to sniperfidy:

      Was thinking about starting a new overclocking thread, since all the ones I could find via search were really old. Thoughts?


      If you have a specific overclocking question, that's fine. We encourage new threads for questions, as it helps the forum turn over, and we can resolve issues on a case-by-case basis, then lock threads as they're resolved.

      But new "official" threads on specific topics must be started by a CTA with mod approval, or they'll just get locked. It's in the rules. We try to keep the number of "conversational" threads to a minimum in the tech forum, with links in the rules. That allows people to find them easily, or they'd just get buried by the individual tech question threads. I'd check with Dark or Strider before starting one.

      I wish consoles had dedicated servers, but it isn't the norm like it is for PC gaming. Consoles are pretty closed in that sense, my guess being that it's easier to manage. Can you imagine some poor n00b joining a Halo 3 server full of hackers? lol


      It wouldn't have to be like the PC. The very first Xbox Live game let people run a dedicated host on their 360s. Those hosts showed up in Optimatch. Don't see why a similar function couldn't be included in the game. It would just increase the number of available hosts for matchmaking.

      Custom game searching would be cool... have you played Battlefield: Bad Company 2? Their implementation of custom game searching is fantastic! If I feel like it, I can get on there and play my favorite map/gametype 50 times in a row. Something like that would be so popular, you would think they would implement it so I can only assume there is a technical reason for it... or, maybe they are dedicating their personnel/resources elsewhere? Not working for Bungie, all we can do is speculate. I doubt they wouldn't include it for no good reason.


      Why do you give Bungie the benefit of the doubt here? The reason for no custom game/party searching is that it would dilute the matchmaking population. But this is flawed reasoning as letting people play what they want to play would give Bungie useful playing data with which they could improve matchmaking. Once matchmaking evolves to keep up with custom gaming trends, the benefits of matchmaking will outweigh those of custom matches and more people will jump into matchmaking. At least until a new gametype that isn't in matchmakin pops up. Then people will play that in customs until matchmaking catches up.

      As for your last point, all I can do is repeat myself: Bungie has to pick and choose... they can't please everyone, every time. They have incorporated a lot of ideas, but for example if one person suggests something like jetpacks, and another says that's dumb, they can't listen to both. Creating a game that appeals to the majority is in their best interest. They've had so much experience and data collected from H2/3/ODST that by now they must know what the majority of their user base wants in a Halo game.

      BUT THEIR EXPERIENCE IS IN COLLECTING INCOMPLETE DATA! I can't say this more clearly. You're giving them credit for something they don't even do. Wow, they monitor custom games. So you're telling me that they know what all the people who build their friends lists around and exclusively play one game like to play? Awesome. They listen to the spamming on the forums sometimes, but custom game searching and dedicated hosts are deal-breakers to me because they're so basic and I haven't seen a single reasonable justification for their total exclusion from the series in the eight years I've wanted/asked/expected them.
