Check your router config for blocked ports, she might have added steam there. I honestly think reinstalling is just wasting time.

My old school laptop ran source (not very well) back in 2004, and it was standard stock Toshiba craptop, so it shouldn't be hard to find what you're looking for since the editor takes up less resources than the game itself.

Still $1k is a pretty small amount for a laptop. You live in the states right?

When I mentioned TWHL 4, I didn't mean it as a name, just a new version. Websites never put the version of the site in their domain, it's just silly.

Most of the under 18 crowd here does not pay their own bills.

So, your statement really doesn't make much sense.
I did say "or having someone paying them for you", which by what I meant was that if you're just a kid and don't actually have to pay for anything, then surely you can save up 50 dollars.

I've been raping my CPU at something like 70c for three and a half years now. I'm a lazy shit and I built the computer myself with very limited knowledge. The side panel case fan started making annoying noises so I disconnected it, and haven't compensated for it. Computer is still holding me up a bit, with game loading times, but once in, the FPS is damn good, I always assumed I had a bit of a bottleneck because I have 1gb of memory with 1gb of video memory, but who knows, maybe my CPU has been degraded from constant high temps.

Makes me happy to be honest, who can't afford 'em anyway, you're all clearly paying your utility + internet bills, or have someone paying them for you, and as for money "lying" around, who pays with cash on the internet? (maybe I took that a tad literally?)

Around how much are they anyway? I'm assuming under $50

Oh, Strideh, I have to use UDK for uni, so I'm all for it! The editor needs some serious tweaking though, in my opinion. Sadly it ran smoothly on my old Nvidia GPU, but since that bombed out, and upgrading to the ATi HD5870, it started to run like shit in terms of FPS, so it also has some annoying support problems which I couldn't get any help for at the official forum.

But it's such a wonderfully optimised and stunning engine, it has so much potential for amateur developers and would definitely be a great way to attract new members if we could actually get some good tutes and what not for it. Who knows, I might end up helping.

So what other games were you thinking of supporting? All valve games or broader?

I like the idea, I had no idea you guys had restricted access though, how did you redo the entire site?

Edit: if the site could go down at anytime, why not start a dev blog for the new site, mainly just so people don't get left in dark.

The conversion to video only works in source games.
Fraps.
You mean the picture printer? It works in goldsource. Then just use videomach to compile it. You need to record a demo first to use it though. "record demoname"

Then to print them use "startmovie movietitle 25" where 25 is the FPS.

I'll try right now, I've tried before, and it never fixed the green dots though.

Also, I think I am ordering this very soon

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=13500

Thoughts?

I took it out, blew the dust out thoroughly, now it BSOD's everytime before the windows initial loading screen finishes.

I probably spat into it.

Huntey, I doubt it could be the slot, you should have seen some of the artifacts I was getting, as far as the uniform ones go some buttons in games had perfectly sized star over them, loading bars were replaced with smiley faces taken from the games GUI, pictures where stretched and tiled all over the screen plus a host of your regular triangles, black shit, fuzzies and crap.

in GPU help! Urgent! Post #286617
Hey guys, just need a quick diagnosis and recommendation.

So I have a feeling my graphics card is going to die very very soon. Loads of artifacts in games, literally rendering them unplayable, and constantly freezes, and now it's starting to happen in my web browser too. I have had an artifact issue with the card for about a year now, it displays green dots pixels that should be dark, and they ghost without removal, unless the window is minimized, but today it has taken it huge leap.

I'm not very good with computers despite how much I use them. So please excuse my ignorance.

Can I confirm this is my GPU?

What's a good cheap card? I'd like it to be better than this one (8800GTS 640mb)I know I have no other option really than to buy a new card.

Tell me if you need any more technical information, but this should(oh god I thought it was gonna crash just then)help.

Mobo: Asus P5B, CPU: intel E6600

Actually, I don't care how expensive it is, I just need to be compatible with my current rig, and be just as good or better than my last card.
