15524  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Help removing some files on: June 23, 2006, 10:35:07 PM
When Media Player is open, hit the ALT key to show you the top menu (FILE. EDIT. ETC...)

Go to Tools >> Options >> Privacy and click on the clear history button.

Now it won't list it.  (removing the file doesn't remove the link).


You may also want to right-click the start button and go to:

Properties >>  Customize >> Advanced Tab and then clear the recent document history.

To take it one step further, you could remove the check to show recent docs at all. Should you, you know, uhm, have documents of questionable content.


You can also set up custom desktops (so each of you has their own logon,  my docs etc) and password protect it. If you choose to encrypt your files, you will not be able to look at each others folders.

If you need help with this, reply here (and maybe send me a PM as well) and I'll post the steps.

    I couldn't stop watching it; it was like watching crash mode in Burnout 3. the pileup kept getting bigger and bigger. She got the 2x score multiplier by climbing off the piano and grunting RIGHT INTO the mic. She then  nailed the 4x bonus by flaunting her black pantied (!!) arse in a sheer off-white dress and took it to a new level! I mean, the only thing you could top it off is wearing black tube socks and maybe a CarmenMiranda Fruit-Hat™.

ooo, also Prey.
Quote
Prey tells the story of Tommy, a Cherokee garage mechanic stuck on a reservation going nowhere. His life changes when an otherworldly crisis forces him to awaken spiritual powers from his long-forgotten birthright. Abducted along with his people to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, he sets out to save himself and his girlfriend and eventually his planet. Prey is serious, dark story, based on authentic Cherokee mythology. Themes of sacrifice, love and responsibility are explored and the story dives into emotional territory not yet explored by similar games.

We've had some movies filmed in Winnipeg to.. stuff like Capote (the dead girl is the daughter of my mom's co-worker), K-19 Widowmaker, the new brad pitt western (some billy-the-kid flick). Not a ton of movies though. Vancouver is called Hollywood north.

Spiderman 3 in Winnipeg? Not so much. He'd be swinging off maybe 14 buildings... the movie would be a revival of the old spiderman cartoon; webbing going up into the sky for no reason, and the same building shots OVER and OVER and OVER.  *)

Hey, maybe they could film Rocket Robin Hood in the same method! slywink

From their hiring page:
Quote
Apogee and 3D Realms are die hard game players who make games without marketing pressure, corporate management, or arbitrary release dates. We make games we want to play, and we work on them until they are perfected and done. We are hard working, hard playing, highly motivated developers with a mission to succeed at all costs. We hire only the industry's cream-of-the-crop talent--and if you've got the talent, you can join us.

If you visit other game companies' web sites looking for a job you'll notice a lot of talk about what *they* need and not much about what they will give you. At Apogee and 3D Realms we operate under a different approach: We do everything possible to make each developer a key partner in the company and a critical team member who has true creative control over the project's outcome. The TEAM approach is in real practice here--it's not just a buzzword.



DNF is still listed as being in progress. biggrin

If you won't I will. slywink Question (def'n 2 & 4) is the topic or point in question. Whether it end with a ? or not is irrelevant. An argument generally is two or more conflicting statements on a topic, all of which have a responsibility to (dis)prove.
Begging (def'n 3) is the other half of that.

Hopefully that clears it up. Cool Now, onto the Family Cthulhu....

You intended as "it raises the question" or "so then the question needs to be asked: "

Here's a quick breakdown :  To beg the question is to state something as a fact in an argument, even though it is either untrue (may be speculation) or unproven to that point.

"Abortion is committing an act of murder, so all people who perform them should be jailed as we punish those who murder." The statement Abortion is committing an act of murder has not been proven as fact (in this example, I'm not talking personal feelings here), therefore it is begging the question.

Here's a math version:  A=12 therefore A+6=18  If there is no proof that A=12, then 18 is not an accurate answer.

I hate Angst too. By "angst", I'm not talking about "fear" which is what the word means (german). No, I'm talking about the use of a foreign language word to make oneself sound bigger and more sophisticated. Teenage Angst. <--- no special meaning here, it means fear. Some nut doctor used it so distinguish themselves, and in doing so dropped one more turd into the english language.

"Irregardless". That word is also a big stinky brown floaty that won't go away.

15558  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A blurb about upcoming BC update for 360. on: June 17, 2006, 12:27:13 AM
Quote from: "Clanwolfer"
See, the thing is, nobody would be pissed if they mentioned it as a possible future bonus.  But they weren't forthcoming about it; they promised a goal of 100% compatibility, and then punked out on us.


They don't owe us a THING. BC was never touted as their big selling feature; it was a bonus to existing xbox customers.

Actually, the interweb whined about BC, so MS dedicated teams of people to bring BC to life. They are emulating on incompatible hardware to make games which, made from different dev companies and teams, used it differently. Some of these games took years to make initially, and have custom code to take advantage of the Xbox1's propietary architecture.

If it takes them a year to convert a game, is it worth the cost of it over being able to bring 30-50 other games in the same time? Is the old developer cooperating with the emulation?

They never ONCE promised 100% compatability with all xbox1 games. I seem to remember the whine tuning in on "the most popular games" used before the 360 launch, and how people were concerned that BG&E or POP1 wouldn't make the cut because they bombed at retail.

The only reason the low-rent games are on board is either because they were easy, made easy by another more popular game, or (perhaps) if they wanted an even spread on genres.
