What the f... is going on with design? Forum looks like shit now with these huge black bars on the sides.
EDIT: OH,that was fast, now only if that guy stop fucking the navigation buttons and probably made copyright info on the bottom readable.
You know, back in the days it was excusable to make mistakes in usability of your games and forget about it. But now, since you are updating the game and you know that a lot of people don't know that they need to press F1 at the end of the level, why not fix this bug? Instead, you've put an achievement. Any logic???
So I'm watching let's plays of P2 and I noticed that people use map a lot. And I also remember my first playthrough, I also used it a lot. I think a basic compass will help navigating through Paradise. Nothing fancy, just a rotating texture in the corner of the screen.
What do you think?
Well, in the planned move to completely abandon Steam I decided to empty my inventory. Unfortunately, there is no way to delete items and I don't want to wait a week 4 Steam support to respond. So I decided to give out all my games. So far I have:
Well, just a few days ago the law 139-FZ came into effect. In a nutshell, it creates Internet blacklist which puts Russia just next to a China. Yes, it's all formally because of the children but we all know that it's the first step to obtain total control of people.
Good thing I have Tor up and running.
So 2 days ago I've stumbled to this and I'm still shocked. I've never used Facebook myself but when I opened the list of cookies in my browser, I was shocked to find that damned "datr" one. Big brother is watching. Now it all makes sense because I almost never give out my e-mails but one day I've received an invitation to Facebook from (supposedly) my RL friend, but when I asked him about that, he said that he never sent an invite. So, even if I never used Facebook, it somehow knows my e-mail (which I since deleted) and at least 1 of my RL friends. This is an unspeakable breach of privacy and really eye-opening incident.
So first, I've deleted Facebook cookie and added facebook.com to the list not to accept cookies from. Then I've added new rule "facebook.com/*" to AdBlock Plus (which already has 454 hits). Next, I'm going to add all Facebook IP addresses to the router firewall so I could seal my home from Facebook completely.
After that I've found another shocking truth. You know, Steam integration with Facebook and requirement to use your real name to get Pillar of community badge. Steam is one of them! Steam is also hungry for your personal data. So I've decided to stop licensing games from Steam and stop using it completely in next 2 years. More threads to follow.
It looks like I've finished going through several weeks of painfully trying to get drivers to work. So far I've encountered the following issues:
These all were solved by several complete reinstalls of drivers, registry tweaks, ritual dances and human sacrifice.
You know, back in the days Sound Blaster was a synonym for a sound card, no longer. Fuck this shit.
So I've started Steam version for the first time, clenched my teeth and prepared to suffer from installation of the following:
And, surprise! Nothing of that started and I got right into the game! Oh joy! I'm so fucking tired of every other game treating you like a brain damaged piece of shit which is unable to manually install anything or solve any problem, installing their own version of Visual C++ redist so you have 10-20 different versions on 1 PC at the same time and have to regularly clean it and not being able to cancel the installation or to get into the game without installing all the shit which developer deemed to be there.
So I decided to finally completely ditch Source engine. Now I don't have games to mod but my modding urge is huge. So, does anyone know good moddable games? I really don't care about release date, just the game itself and SDK should work reliably on Windows 7 64.
