Retro gamer? Such a pc with an slight cpu upgrade and for example an R9 270x could play any game that is currently on the market in mid/high settings.

Every PCI Express card is compatible with every PCI Express slot, only the speeds differ.

I found the following for €150:

GA-41T LGA 775 motherboard with DDR3
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.

Love the palm trees. You should add roof to the buildings as it is only plain bricks now. Also you can climb onto some roofs easily via hostage or two players ontop of eachother.

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.

Pre alpha 89, pre beta 2156, almost final 9999 ..
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.

Just remove the updates designated for the update process and hide them from required windows updates list.

And people should stop being so autistic about new versions of Windows operating system regarding its security, privacy and looks, its free ffs. As if any of us have any data that means anything to anyone important, and if any one has any illegal data, or activities, either live with it openly or move onto an deserted island that has no laws. Man up sissies.

There is no need to be ashamed of what you made, even if its crap :)
Fun will always be a priority for most people, regardless of looks. Might take some time for them to get used to an environment, but it will definitely happen if they play games for fun.

Took me some time to get Nina to play WC3 XHero with me. At first she disliked the game because of old graphics and stuffy screen but in the end she liked it.

I personally started making maps inspired by old style, there is no need for meaningless details, especially overly complex brushwork.


Here is an map i made a while ago for my zombie server (remade from 0):

I like the overall simplicity i achieved in the map because in the end it prooven very actiony with the current gameplay on the server. But i am not pleased completely as it lacks that certain atmosphere old maps (that style) have.

Its a bit tricky to get the best look out of things, but we try. Old masters were too good :)

Less visual obstructions enables quick detection of what is what.
I personally think that most maps are too detailed in the wrong places, even if it seems cool at first spot.

I always like maps more that have both nice geometry and sprites and sounds as well. Maps always felt empty to me with out the use of at least a little sprites/transparent textures.

Also, I used to play l33t street a whole lot when i was younger, the teleport rooms some times stuck players if they used snarks. Fun map.

You could make water cubes that move around and you had to swim in them and avoid obstacles.
Also, i know water can contain a ladder, so technically there could also be a moving ladder?

That feature was pretty bugged up when I used 7, it would usually misalign with other devices and I didn't like that.
To configure auto volume control you have to go into device properties. The best option is to set it to do nothing, because from my experience it muted other things more than it should too often.

With the new way audio works in Windows, you can rout any program to any audio hardware.
Commented 4 years ago2015-06-04 15:23:50 UTC in journal: #8555 Comment #62710
Shouldn't audio software be the one to do that?
Usually its once you plugin an device it re-routes the sound automatically.
It should not be able to know what is music and what is game audio on hardware level.

If your media player can select an different output than yes you can do that. But you wont be able to use the same output from your sound card (because logically with out an additional filter/splitter after the output you can not do that, and that's impossible to do with analogue signal).
