Duke Nukem 3D is in my opinion the game with best atmosphere, ever.
If they were to release as good of an modern engine, with RoR ability,
and the same style with additional goodness it would be the game of the year easily.

Extremely easy with acronis true image if, that is, your hard drive is still healthy (with out slow/no response sectors).

Some times drives click on their own when they realign their heads, or if they lost power for a fracture of a second. Check your hard disk power supply as well.

That's a pretty cool idea. I like how the trains look nicely detailed and the way the basic geometry is in old style with low poligon and low res textures. Nice map idea.
Would like to see something similar for CS GO for low player numbers.

Commercial disks last around 25 years. And that is due to reflective coating oxidizing due to air around it.
Golden coating disks can last up to 100 years.

What is more important than some glass disks is a disk writter or burner, it has to be high quality and you have to use good quality disks. Not hyped Verbatim or other crap. Popular brands were TDK, Sony Japan, Maxell, etc.

If they want long lasting pictures they should make an album.

Don't have any illusions, if somebody is special at something they are already discovered and being worked on. Anyone and everyone can always be better at something than someone. It is important to realize how much you can realistically make and how much do you need to have a proper life.
You can do anything if you like doing it, don't ever think that you can't, but it is something only to do when you are in free time. 0.1% of people really do what they like doing as a way of income (and from that to have enough for all expenses).
Find something you can do to earn money and have enough room to do what you like to do. Some people even take vacations to play games because they otherwise can not.

Game development is too shaky of a foundation to base your working carrier onto. Unless you plan on working day and night of course :)

Not a single person is like another person. Every one is different somewhere.
Being different is natural, trying to become similar, in good things, is positive.

Do not run trying to become something you already are, run to find out what reality is, and you will never know reality until you see and understand some one else's point of view.

Every time you feel like you should react, but see no reason why, ask your self, stop and think.
Only by your self you will get no where, only with some one else will you truly get somewhere. Rejecting somebody because their opinion differs than yours and letting go of the opportunity to spend some time with and teach because you feel like they do not understand is truly a waste of time, not the other way around.

To give is to have, to let go of something you like for some one else is the only way to make some realize and change.

Why are you using default compile tools when there are 15 years newer ones, and why in the name of all thats holy are you using textures of size 1024x1024? It is impossible for HL engine to process these textures the conventional way and there is absolutely no need no matter what you think for a beginner to use such texture size.

A lot of changes were imployed back them as well as a complete remake of half life all together midway in development.

So instead of doing some research and presenting your parrents an well thought of option that will both cost less and provide more you decide to get less?
Dumb logic, very.

Your parrents are not irrational (at least I asume as thats usually the case), if they see that you have decided to conserve both their founds, time and show that you are capable of doing a complex task such as that they will definitely agree and even praise you for your work.

Because you will want to eat oranges again tomorrow.
R7 250 passmark is still only 1404(average).

For the amount of money that you want to buy a computer a barely decent one can be bought. A real, true quality, computer would cost anywhere from €1500 to €5000.

I am only telling you this because I would like you to realize how important it is to properly analyze something before buying, or doing, anything.

Especially in Balkan countries where you can get cheap german/euro shit every day only if you look a little.

R7 240 barely surpasses GT630 if we were to base our analasys on Passmark benchmark Average G3D Mark, and those values are:

R7 240 : 962
GT630 : 794

While an R9 270 has an Average G3D Mark score of 4252.

If it werent for testing and experience in computer service over the years I would not have been so sure as to say that in todays games a graphics card is all that matters.
Nina has an E6850 Core 2 Duo (Average CPU mark 1969) and an R9 270X she can run any game on mid/high settings today.

You are confusing smart invesment with spending your budget at once. Smart invesment is getting parts overtime so best deals would appear with high chance of getting quality items.
I would rather wait a few months to build an pc than buy some 3rd grade crap right off the bat (right away).
Just as I bought an e5-2670 CPU and am waiting for a nice cheaper X79 motherboard to appear (As they are currently only found new for insane ammounts of money but can be found used or even new from 3rd party sellers for 100 to 200 euro).

I found the following for €150:

4GB of RAM
Quad Core 8200 (Easily sold for €20, E5450 costs around €30)
GT630 1GB
400W quality PSU
And a cool case + DVD burner + Installed Windows operating system

Much cheaper than anything a laptop can offer in that class.

The whole point is, if you dont know something, get to know it. It took me 3 minutes of reading to find an solution for the people who faced this problem. A whole lot of 3 microsoft windows updates were causing the update process to occur, and still only after you approved it you self. Windows is not doign anything behind its users backs that was not already announced and mentioned.
You paid for an, now outdated, version of windows operating system that is entitled to free update to the newest, more improved, version and you dont want to. Obviously you dont want your computer to serve you, you want to serve it.
Lack of thinking has lead to masses of users to complain, not bad functionality of an multi milion dollar invesment operating system.

No one will loose interest for something he does not know is beeing created. He can only gain interest into it once it is created and from there should be given one test run in order to fix everything. Or as the old masters used to do: Create great map > find flaws > create an even greater and more original second version with improvements from first version. Never go backto something you can finish and make done. Life is too short to go back and wait, go back and wait, go back and wait. Charge head on, think, create, improve only whats on the foundation after your mind is set on it.

What a stupid response, just 20 years ago you would have needed an intensive computer training course in order to use one. Computers are there to be used as tools and serve the user not as a replacement for your own brain. The problem with why windows and many other aspects of it are retarded as they are is because a good part of the userbase is as well.
A computer can not, and should not, think for you, you should think for your self and instruct a computer what to do. If a user is too dumb to do a simple infromative search on how to disable certain aspects of his operating system that he does not desire, and thank god EVERYTHING can be disabled or enabled, he should inform and educate himself.
I said autistic because people really love to be retarded today instead to invest time and sweat, and I personally do not believe autistic people are any more different than anybody else, they are just misfortunate to be unable to completely controll them selfes with ease.

The fact that the same thing has not happened on my computer, and I use windows 8.1 for a few years now, on English language, and the fact that I know that you need to confirm the installation in order for it to progress only suggest to me that some people have no idea on how to use their computer and would gladly waste hours and/or days posting how disgusted they are instead of spending around 10 minutes only for finding the most logical solution and getting to know their operating system more.

You will easily loose interested to finish things if you publish them like this. No one publushes a empty book with a few head lines, then a book with a few pages and an half drawn title cover, books are published completed, proof read and free of possible errors and mistakes.

If you're building an map first plan it from point 0 to point A from which you can build an steady foundation onto which you can add your composition. Dont just shuffle around different loose foundations that can lead no where in the end.
