in Bioshock Movie Post #249887
And the Doom movie was allright! ok, they deleted the demons from hell and replaced them with stupid genetical experiments...
From what I remember, Doom was perhaps one of the most horrifically B-grade films I have ever seen. The acting was a joke, and there was too much CGI for me to be convinced. And the BFG stood for 'Big Fucking Gun', not 'Bio Force Gun'. Pansies. Nowadays I hate most sci-fi and fantasy, because most of it is crap. I prefer the old stuff, such as Lord of the Rings (Especially the book series) and sci-fi from Arthur C Clarke and other classic authors.

I don't think that power is important as the food we throw away, while the hungry in Africa (Asia too) die.
Heh, I'm hungry, and live in Africa. Though I'm hungry as in I-want-a-hamburger hungry.

We did that power saving thing here too, considering we are having a huge power crisis. We have power rationing, along with water rationing. Eish.

Both my keyboard, mouse and headphones are Logitech. Unfortunately my headphones snapped after 2 weeks.

I used to run dual monitors, which included my 19" LCD and a 17" CRT, but it just took up too much space and the dimension difference was awkward.
At my brother work he has three monitors, all 22"ers. He showed me some people with 5 monitors!
He works as a software engineer/developer.

Please don't get Crysis, I made the mistake of getting it, and it is just loads of eye-candy and graphics with absolutely TERRIBLE game play, complete lack of creativity in design, very short, very boring, and pretty much like Vista - Loads of eye candy, but total crap inside.

Pfffft whatever! :P ;) (Arent Ubuntu and Fedora both based on Gnome anyway?)

And yes, Compiz-Fusion is fun, in fact, probably WAY over the top actualy!

As for gaming on Linux, well, I've never had much luck with Wine, but that is probably just me. You probably somehow have to link to the DirectX libraries or something.

in coders needed! Post #244872
I HATE the term "Coder" with a passion. Please use the term "Programmer". A coder, is a person who simply just does the syntax based part of programming. The actually typing/"coding" it in for the computer to understand. A programmer however, is someone who actually designs the application/program with the use of algorithms. You will need more then just "Coders" for this. And the entire half-life framework will need to be reprogrammed for this.

Linux mint is just another variant of Ubuntu, for people who want "Pwetty Interface", as opposed to what linux is truly about - utility, versatility and power. I mean, it even uses the Ubuntu package repositories, and everything.
And MINT's slogan is "From Freedom Came Elegance". Just that alone is enough to break an OS. If you want elegance, go Apple. Most Linux users like me dont even use the GUI, we use the shell. (Bash).

Don't worry, most of the stuff in C++ is just the API consisting of libraries to make your life easier. A language only has to be able to receive input, write output, basic mathematical functions ( + - / * MOD), loop code, compare (AND,OR,XOR,NOT), and store data in memory (Variables and objects), and create multiple threads to run different parallel processes. Everything else is just other classes which are used to simplify complex tasks.

in WHO LIKES DODGE. Post #241162
Whats the point of so much raw power when the speed limit hardly lets you exceed even one tenth of it? And dont suggest breaking the limit, because my brother does that, and has paid THOUSANDS in speeding fines, had his car impounded, and spent a few nights in prison.
And as for "electronic gadgets", it's those electronics that practically double the power output of an engine. On the old mustangs, a huge amount of that power was lost.

in WHO LIKES DODGE. Post #241048
I dislike American Muscle, mainly because of their great lack of efficiency. (Due to lack of electronics and ECU's, etc). They had a race between a modified Ford Mustang with 7.5l engine, and a Jaguar E-type with a 3.5l engine. The Jag SMOKED the Mustang, because of its high power efficiency.
Also, because of the Mustangs backward engineering, when it did a corner it skidded right off and totaled into the side. The Jag cut the corner perfectly.
And I just never liked the styling of American Muscle, I always though it looked very primitive and clunky. I prefer European and Asian cars.

in Rock/Boulder Construction Post #240873
Create a brush. Clip it, VM it, clip it more, VM it more, rotate it, rescale it, more clipping, more VM, more rotating. For brush based boulders, thats about it. ;)

in Invisible Water??? Post #240872
Ive had this problem before. Make sure the water is a SOLID, not a brush based entity (Such as func_wall or anything). Second, make sure the water texture name you are using has a "!" prefix. Thirdly, make sure that same texture is applied to ALL faces of that solid. And lastly, use the "Check for problems" to ensure that the water brush is not broken. Make sure there are no vertex/face errors...make sure you haven't carved the water brush or clipped the brush. For safety purposes, delete the entire water brush, and add it again, making sure it is a pure cube, with no transformations or anything.

Thanks, that works. Another problem I have found, when mapping for HL2, when I try selecting a model for a prop (Using the VGUI browser) the whole Hammer just crashes, with no error report. Disabling the VGUI browser solves the problem. However, when mapping for CSS, the VGUI browser works?

in 3D view in Hammer sometimes not working. Post #240837
I'm having a problem with the 3D view in Hammer. If I just have started a map, or am changing the view from 2D to 3D, the 3D view is not rendered - it just goes black, and when I rotate, nothing happens, just remains black. It only happens when I start a new map or as I said, change views to 3D. The only way around it I have found is to select a brush in 2D, then go Tools > Center 3D view on Selection, this seems to "wake-up" the 3D view and get it rendering. What on earth is going on here?

in Blue/Green textures not visible Post #240724
its not color based, its the last color in the set of 256 colors that is transparent when using the solid rendermode. The color itself could be anything but the pure blue is notorious.
Wrong. The RGB values are 1 byte each, meaning the maximum value it can ever reach is 255. You are confusing it with memory values.
