Thank you. :)
Now that he's 7, he drifted away from the good games, sadly. He doesn't want to play Half-Life, Counter-Strike, DooM, Quake etc. but he just wants to Roblox and sometimes Minecraft. It's kind of unfortunate that he doesn't want to play the maps I've made.

When I was making mp_verycold (a map for Far Cry 1, for a mapping contest at GameBanana), I actually paid him real money just to playtest the map with me.
We've had some fun, but it wasn't worth the money...

But hey, now I've got friends on Steam. Sometimes I play Synergy with a guy from Russia and another guy from Romania.
I've also hosted a playtesting session of de_kobbl, which was super fun by the way. If there's something my brother and I could enjoy together (in video games), that would probably be... Payday 2. Of course, my laptop won't be able to run it, so I'll have to wait until I get my new PC built.

Also, @Stojke...

Well... I was absent in the photo, but still, my brother and I were about to play it. I.m.o. the photo is just better without me.

If I remember well, my brother and I used to play on Zandronum back in those days. Now we use GZDoom.

I didn't say that the price will be that low. But I'll definitely find those parts somewhere, because my 3 years of research weren't for nothing.
I think I'll find the parts in I.T. shops in Sarajevo.

I play DooM with a keyboard and mouse. But hey, I guess that's much better than what my brother now prefers: a gamepad. And I've never said I was a true fan of DooM. I'm not a true fan of anything, just myself. ;)

He betrayed me. I thought he will remain a loyal PC gamer, but it looks like he'd be more comfortable around the console gamers' controls.

Inserting pictures is easy:

Write [img][/img].
[img] tells the beginning of the image link and [/img] ends it.
In between those 2, paste the link of the image (which ends with .png or .jpg or .gif or whatever your format is).

Apparently... the parameters aren't a problem. You should go to options/preferences and find your game configuration. You know, "Base Game Directory" etc.

The .map files get exported to the folder by Hammer. But, the compiling tools don't even start working. They don't even produce the BSP file. If you were using J.A.C.K., it would have alerted you that the BSP file was not made.

"Unknown option "Editor\zhlt\hlcsg.exe"

Are you using expert mode in the compile menu?
Because your tools think that you are telling them to use some parameters like -extra -texdata 8192 and things like that, but you're telling them a folder or something. That's just wrong.

Instead, clean up your parameters (if using expert compile mode), or go to your game configuration and check the build tool paths.

Why does everyone write "LOG"? That's the universe where my mod takes place (L.O.G. - Land of Gamers), come on... just say log.

In my opinion, you either set up the configuration improperly (so the BSP ends up elsewhere) or the compiling tools don't get access to that folder because of Windows' security system. Though, I think it's the first one.

Paste the log here tomorrow, and we'll decypher what's going on. :)

Despite Polish being a Slavic language I will never know, I found one word which could mean something in Bosnian: "Zapisywanie".

"Zapisivanje" means "writing down" in Bosnian.
"Zapisati" = "To write down"

Also, "podaj" means "give" in south-Slavic. xD
I kind of found it funny when I heard Russians saying "davaj" because "davaj" also means "give" in my language.

About the fear of using your voice:

I thought I was the only one here. :D (although, I'm sure our reasons to fear are very different)

I've recently had a playtesting session of de_kobbl, and 2 people used their voices. But I was too scared of something so I didn't talk, until they started shooting me for typing whole paragraphs in the IRC chat-box. :/ (which took time)

So I used my voice, and even though my heart started beating a lot quicker and I started breathing quicker, I felt a sudden relief. That's pretty much everywhere. I'm afraid to use my voice, but for other reasons, of course.

I'm not just afraid of using my own voice, but I'm (in specific situations) afraid of hearing other people's voices. R.I.P.

As always, there's that occasional playtesting of de_kobbl, so if you're looking for some CS 1.6 action, feel free to hop in the hype train. :)
(of course, if you're on GameBanana, which I'm unsure)

(Edit: Fixed. Blame my mobile network - Urby)

Very well, then. xD

Alright, let's see what happened today.

I went to Mostar. The town where the ETS is located. Basically, I went there with my mum to see how it is to take the bus every workday. Apparently, there's some walking from the bus stop to the school, but that's not a concern.

I saw that part of the town, and tried to remember it. It's because I've gone there lots of times, yet I've never actually known anything about it. Knowing the place is pretty important since I'll go to high school there, lol.

Speaking of which, I saw the school itself. It looks nice and pretty accessible. Counting in all the subjects/classes my course will have, I think I'll be fine there. :)

Basically, for the ones who don't understand, this literally resembles an inter-thread conversation.

Rufee says "Now I want to fire up hammer and make something like that :)"
Urby responds "Step to it!"
To which Solokiller says "Yes, but that's illegal."
As if recreating stuff in VHE is illegal. XD

Then Urby says "I hadn't. I tried it. I didn't enjoy it."
As if he actually did that.

And Windawz comes and says "Still waiting.", like he's waiting for Rufee to do it. xD
It's such a coincidence.

And ts_untergrund? Well, that one was made a bit differently. I drew a room onto a piece of paper and then I made that room. I made it, textured it and everything, and then I made a few halls, and that's where I stopped working because I didn't know what to do next. Then I created a plan in SketchUp:

THIS is why I won't buy an SSD. The speed just won't compensate for the lack of space and the price.

I mean, in my country, for the price of a 120GB SSD, I can buy a 1TB 7200rpm HDD. Also, as far as I've read somewhere on Quora, SSDs are good for reading operations, but you shouldn't write too much on them.

And if I were to buy a 1TB HDD and a 120GB SSD, then my dad's, my aunt's and my own wallet altogether would be deeply hurt because the budget is pretty much driven to the ceiling already.

I won't lie, but I feel disgusted when I see people complaining how their Intel HD Graphics isn't good enough for games. They should've tried what I have, and then they would appreciate their stuff more.

But yeah, I did a very good job of not killing my current laptop. I mean, it's almost 10 years old and only God knows when will its HDD fail.
Anyway, I'm really excited for that new PC.

Oddly, last night I had a dream where my neighbour-cousin (he's a 3rd-grader) was playing games on his own PC. Man... what an odd dream. It's odd because he doesn't have a PC of any sort - not even a laptop. And his parents probably won't buy him one, either. xd

The night (or 2 nights) before, I had had a dream where I was in a bicycle race in Stolac and it was very rainy. I came 9th and I got a yellow RX 460. What the heck...

Alright, let's do this...
I said something about this new topic in the screenshots thread.

My GPU standards:

Bottom-end: graphics cards like Intel GMA X3100, the G41 Chipset etc.
Low-end: GT 210, GT 610, old AMD HD 2000 Series and stuff like the AMD X1300 etc.

Medium-end: Intel HD Graphics 3000, Nvidia GT 720 and 730, AMD R7 240, lower-end AMD HD 4000 (incl. the 4650 - my old PC's GPU), 5000 and 6000 (e.g. 6450) series
Higher-medium-end: AMD R7 250, R7 250X, Nvidia GT 740, Intel HD Graphics 4000

Budget-high-end: AMD RX 460 (& 560), GTX 750 Ti and 650 Ti and so on...
High-end: AMD RX 470 (& 570), GTX 760 (& 770, 960 and 970), AMD HD 7000 series (e.g. the 7970)

The top-end: AMD RX 480 (& 580), GTX 780 (& 980 Ti), and I don't know what else to fit here...
The realm-of-gods-end: AMD RX Vega, Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti and the Titan GPUs.

Yeah, I have some standards which a lot of people won't agree with (mostly from the low-end to high-end GPUs), but that's just how I see graphics cards.

And I remember that Cd5ssmffan told me that I didn't really answer the question (on my GameBanana blog), so here it is:

Why do I like "low-end" graphics cards?
It's because your low-end is my higher-medium-end. Now think about that. You've seen the chart, now you know it.

Basically, those songs are mostly "chetnik" songs, and my teacher hates Chetniks. I blame nationalistic ideas and religion for all of this mess.

So, yesterday was Monday, my last day of elementary school.

I found out that 90% votes were for Turkish in my class, because the parents (the ones who actually voted) were talked into voting for it.

Then I'm afraid of having to learn German from 0 because German in high school will have high school lessons and won't have us learn the basics.

It turns out that we might learn the basics of German in high school. :D

I found out lots of info I should've found out. I also retrieved my bag which contained 2 folders with A3 paper sheets and equipment for art class (brushes etc.). That's something I had left in school in Thursday. :3

Having found out some info, let's see why I really learned Turkish in elementary.
It weren't me and my classmates who had voted. Our parents had. Most of them would vote for German, but some Turks went ahead and talked about how nice it is to learn Turkish and how 'good' it is. We were promised a backpack and a pencil case (for free) and a yearly trip to Zenica.

My mom accidentally missed the parents' meeting class in 6th grade that day, so we lost 1 vote for German. Regardless, Turkish would've won with over 90% votes. >:(

Basically, those parents were talked into voting for Turkish! It's not my fault. When I say "I had to learn Turkish in elementary school." everyone asks me "Why did you choose Turkish? You should've voted for German!" I decide to raise my tone a little bit and say "It's not me who wanted Turkish. It's my classmates." and then I tell the whole story over again.

I actually remember ^that^ happening in the ShoutBOX once, when somebody asked me why I'm learning Turkish. Then someone said "Probably because he lives in a country close to Turkey or lives in Turkey." something like that...

Now that I have this new piece of info, everything makes more sense. Parents being talked into voting for Turkish, just because of business.

Now, I won't say "Turkish is a bad language." No. It's an OK language and it's a bit cool. But for me, there are no pracical reasons to use it unless you're moving to Turkey (which I'm not) and/or you want to chat with Turks (I actually know 2 people from Turkey, they're good guys).

And the promises? The school's director got a free trip to Turkey, we got our yearly trip to Zenica and we got the very low-quality backpacks and pencil cases. Totally not worth it!
Let's think about what happens next:

German will wait for me in high school. However, I'm worried that it will treat me as if I had German in elementary school, i.e. we will have high school lessons. Well, I'm not worried any more.

Remember how I said that I had found out info I should've found out?
Well, my class teacher told me that elementary-school lessons in German are revised upon in high school (thank God). If that turns out to be true, then I'm safe and sound. :)
So yeah, I am very fond of what I had discovered that day. Though, my class teacher isn't. She discovered about me listening to Serbian war songs. Darn.

In fact, I think I left Facebook just because of my classmates. I guess it was better that way.

Hmm, good idea, maybe I should also filter my friends list and remove the unnecessary individuals. Oh yeah, the cleansing will begin...
