You really should rename this thread: Watchdog tackles PS3 yellow light of death...makes Watchdog look bad. Never heard of or watched the show before but it was pretty lame. A Johnny Cash inspired 'comedy' video to wash it all down with? Child, please.

Played the demo.  It didn't grab me like I was hoping.  But then Stranglehold didn't either...

I played the demo for Wet as well and it really didn't grab me, either. But all this talk of "cubic awesome" has me intrigued...

I have to say again, if you guys are enjoying the feel of this game and haven't tried House of the Dead: Overkill, you are totally missing out.

I've had a copy of that game for several weeks now, but it just hasn't made it into the Wii yet.  Still on my list of things to do.

Get yourself a pistol grip for the Wiimote, really a necessity for that game IMHO.

Aw, don't tell me that, I was hoping to get away without one.

OK, you could certainly get away without having one. Let me rephrase slightly and say that (IMHO) one is highly recommended.  icon_wink

How is MSFT about transferring the DRM stuff and getting you a cable to transfer your hdd data if you upgrade to a new system?

It was free with the purchase of an Elite in the past, assuming the same can still be done. And then there's always this:

When I first tried the backup utility and my flash drive was too small, it simply told me that. There's no spanning capability, so if it doesn't see the amount of space it will need it should just say so. But still, would be curious if you can do a simple copy to it or if it is well and truly locked.

The only thing I've seen online is that can be a brand issue, some may not work properly with the PS3 for some reason. Me, I haven't seen that yet, though. Do you have any others you can try?
2691  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: PS3 - USB Device is locked on: September 17, 2009, 03:23:03 AM
I'm a little confused by what you said. The backup utility doesn't give you any choice as to what to back up, it does everything on the hard drive not just game saves. Or you can copy individual files to your flash drive from the options menu. So are you having this issue trying to use the flash drive as a backup target?
2692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman: Arkham Asylum PC on: September 16, 2009, 04:26:27 AM
Well, resolved both on my own. When Live first tells you your product key is invalid, you have to press 'Try Again' (not exactly intuitive) and then it asked me for the key that came with the game. After that I was able to sign into Live, when it promptly notified me there was an update available for the game. Loaded that - which took some time and looked hung, so be patient - it added the PhysX support that was missing and now the option to change it is on the bottom of the Settings menu.

Sheesh.

ps. The shipping version is 1.0 and the update to 1.1 is what brings PhysX to the table. Also, the shortcut to start the game for 1.0 ran the launcher with Play, Settings, Readme (etc) and now after the update it just starts the game.  icon_neutral
2693  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman: Arkham Asylum PC on: September 16, 2009, 04:05:11 AM
Argh... things have changed from the demo. Running the BMLauncher.exe from the Binaries folder gets me to the same Settings screen that comes up when the game launches but with no mention of PhysX anywhere, so I don't see where to change it any more. And Windows Live won't connect because of an 'invalid product key' and yet I can't find anywhere to set that or place to enter the authorization key that comes with the game.

I vaguely recall having this same problem with Dawn of War under Steam but I'll be jiggerred if I can remember the resolution or find any previous posting I could swore I made when it was happening to me.  icon_neutral

I found a copy at one of my Best Buys on the way home. Did you ask them if they had any copies? Too many times, especially in the first couple of days, they have them in the store but haven't bothered to put them out yet. But someone should be able to 'go in the back' and round one up for you.

Hope to get some time with it later.

I'm seriously considering picking this up for the PC even though I'm already playing it on my PS3 at the moment. I have a 360 controller for it, which should help and the (p-word) enhancements to the environments in the PC demo were very cool.
2697  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Batman: Arkham Asylum PC on: September 15, 2009, 07:51:15 PM
So has anyone confirmed that the PhysX framerate issues we saw in the demo have indeed been corrected?

I think I bought this drive from someone on here or OO frown So now warranty I dont think.

Shouldn't matter, it's typically X years from date of manufacture regardless of ownership from what I've seen. You should be able to check on their website if it is still under warranty or not, I found the process with Western Digital to be very simple and painless when I had one of theirs go south.

After listening to this unit for the last week it is clear that the persistent, relentless slamming of the optical drive during gameplay is part of the issue. I understand the idea of drop the disc in and ready to go but why a large portion of the game content isn't installed on the HD is beyond me. I would love to know the MTBF of the optical drive. I can almost feel myself breathe normally again after exiting a game.

You do know you can now copy the entire disk to your hard drive, yes?

Yes, PS3. Not quite sure what that means. When you put your thumb drive in, did it show up under the Photos, Music and Videos menus as a valid source? It should and helps show it is being recognized first. When I then went to my BAA game save, hit triangle for options and then 'Copy', one of the copy destinations listed was my thumb drive. And then just selected it. The copy back is pretty much the same, find it on the thumb drive and copy. You don't have any control over exactly where it goes in both places, btw, but that should be all there is to it.

Thanks. For some reason mine's not showing up. It's a brand new Kingston data traveler, pretty standard fare. so not sure why it's not being recognized.

Any chance it's not formatted as FAT32? That's required for the PS3 to 'see' it properly.

This game is all kinds of awesome.  It never gets old using those gadgets.  I would love to see a sequel that takes place in Gotham and involves all the major criminals.

With that save thing.  Just use multiple saves.  I do that for every game I play.  It's standard operating procedure.  I usually rotate among at least three different saves.  Just in case.

You only get one save.

True, but you could copy that one save off more than once. I copy mine to a thumb drive when I remember to and one could do that to more than one if you really wanted to go to that trouble. I'm wondering if I can rename it and copy it back so it would be recognized in one of the other slots rather than needing to overwrite all the time? Have to give that a shot today.

How did you do this? I assume you are on the PS3 version. I put a thumb drive in, and went to Game\Save Games and then Options/Copy. It just says for me to insert storage device at the save location.

Tap the emergency brake going into the corner (A button), floor it and counter steer your way through the turn making very slight corrections as needed.

It takes a while to get the hang of it and I still have a tendancy to carry way too much speed with me into the hairpins so I still sometimes end up slamming sideways into the barricades.

Thanks! I'll give that a shot.

To be honest, the way you phrased that last sentence didn't exactly make it seem like you were going to do anything other than trash it.

Everything about your actual disk sounds legit, what I'd assume you had was a "false positive" from AVG and a quick google for "AVG false positive" turns up 121k hits. Perhaps you could narrow that down with either the nature of the threat (did you mention a trojan somewhere?) or with the filename it allegedly found it in, see if it's one of their known issues. I'm also assuming they have forums you could post in and hopefully get an 'official' verdict.

that'd be the assembled code, but I wonder if someone could extract the source from that.

Right, they're looking for the source code not the executables. I know you can in some cases 'reverse engineer' or 'disassemble' back to source code but it's not really the same as getting your hands on the original commented source code... especially if it still has that new code smell.  icon_wink

Just picked up a Masterbuilt smoker much like the Black Propane Smoker that's fourth down on the page but electric rather than propane. So I was wondering if anyone has any good smoking tips, recipes, sites, books or whatnot to share. Today is 'seasoning' day but have some baby backs I picked up that I plan on smoking tomorrow. So any advice? I've done plenty of bbq'ing in my day but this is my first foray into official smoker land.
