image rating didn't seem to work well for sites like teamxbox.com (or was it xboxaddict.com ?).

Since we're talking about structure and queries... it would be nice if you guys had the ability to thread the news articles, kinda like gmail. (so we could get an archive of all things oblivion, based on a link in the DB ... but something easy to view and collapse ).

I really like the weighted news idea.

make sure to go to www.xbox.com and link your gamertag to a passport account first (such as a hotmail account). This will save you time and trouble.

15977  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / A Force More Powerful on: March 01, 2006, 09:07:49 PM
After reading that, I'm wondering a couple of things :

1) is one of the conflicts in game where you are a candidate for the president of the united states of america, just lost, and need to find a way to still sieze power? (two-pronged "Call Daddy" & "Question the Florida Vote" is the "Easy" setting on that level)

2) Do they also have the level where you incite riots by using caracatures of a prophet (not even "god" per se) and then making available some of the most obscure european flags for the flag-burning population, and setting up newscasts to show the most heated situations?


I'm actually interested in this game. The more I think about it, the more curious I get. Here's 198 non-violent actions one can take.. #22 & #44 NEED to be done in UNISON! biggrin

I gave in and clicked.

Quote

Can a computer game teach how to fight real-world adversaries—dictators, military occupiers and corrupt rulers, using methods that have succeeded in actual conflicts—not with laser rays or AK47s, but with non-military strategies and nonviolent weapons? Such a game, A Force More Powerful (AFMP), is now available. A unique collaboration of experts on nonviolent conflict working with veteran game designers has developed a simulation game that teaches the strategy of nonviolent conflict. A dozen scenarios, inspired by recent history, include conflicts against dictators, occupiers, colonizers and corrupt regimes, as well as struggles to secure the political and human rights of ethnic and racial minorities and women.
 
A Force More Powerful is the first and only game to teach the waging of conflict using nonviolent methods. Destined for use by activists and leaders of nonviolent resistance and opposition movements, the game will also educate the media and general public on the potential of nonviolent action and serve as a simulation tool for academic studies of nonviolent resistance.

Here's my gross generalization for the day :
Alternative lifestyle = gay. (not that there's anything wrong with that)

So is this game what I think it is?? A homophobe's nightmare of sequins and feather boas? Or is it a game that employs conversation? How about a bit of description? Is it a first person talker or a realtime strategy conversation?

In all seriousness, it'd be helpful to drop a description as I'm too lazy to click on links. biggrin

Add a Newroom forum.

The purpose? Everytime a news article goes up and is published it spawns a new forum thread in the article with the body of text as the first message.

Then the "discuss this in the forums" makes more sense, and you should allow anon access to post to that thread (but restrict it to no more than 5 messages or something to encourage signup).


just an idea... I'm not crazy about the way that some sites pull the forum comments into their article itself, I guess that is the popular way of implementing stuff like that.

15984  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Would like some input on a system I'm looking at on: February 28, 2006, 05:09:59 PM
When it comes to power supplies, believe it or not Weight and price are about as important as brand and the "rating".

I've known 420W power supplies to be horribly underpowered, and seen 300-350W power supplies just sing.

I'd recommend going with the Sonata II case (as it's DAMN quiet and comes with an A grade power supply). plus the double hinged door and cpu air scoop is convenient and practical.

I have another power supply that I bought a couple years ago, and it's not done me wrong. I won't go with a power supply that costs less than 60USD for a gaming rig, and I generally look for reviews of it first.
15985  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [360] Burnout Revenge content avail in marketplace. on: February 28, 2006, 01:14:01 AM
Burnout Revenge content available :

2 videos (lo and hi res) a theme and gamer pics.

I just watched the 720p ... looks  decent.


Something to keep in mind is, if you hadn't played it on another platform, this game is HANDS DOWN one of the best arcade racing games.

Highly recommended; I only hope that the game is better with the whole EA online crap that the Xbox1 version had... oh, and that the EA trax actually SAVE your preferences properly.

I don't see why not. My Xbox live account works for games such as Halo2; the game's live access is xbox live, not 360 live (emulation mode doesn't extend to adding live360 functionality into the games).

I've not tested my live account on an actual xbox1 since my upgrade though. I may be talking via my arse on this one.
15999  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Help me blow lots of money on a new PC... on: February 20, 2006, 10:02:22 PM
Hrm. I would add a drive to that, Tim ... How about a 74GB Raptor drive? Run your OS on it and your basic apps and games, and mount your second hdd as subfolders for large data storage*. Plunk your disk caching onto all logical drives. It will run like a top. There is an advantage to having disk caching on all your drives; working with large files off secondary disks doesn't require the use of the defined temp folder to copy.

eg : 150x55MB RARs on E: (secondary SATA drive). Go to extract to E:, and the system will use the e: drive virtual mem cache to extract it, meaning the file(s) are extracted into RAM (virtual memory on that drive), and then the pointers are moved to wherever you "logically" extracted it on that drive. It's that, or having the system extract it to your %TEMP% folder (likely C: system drive) and then pass it through the disk controllers to the second drive. Given your crazy-ass purchase price, I think maybe you should also get a second 300GB drive and RAID0 the damn thing for even FASTER access. biggrin

Oh, and those RAPTOR drives are FAST. I have my XPMCE2005 sitting on a 36GB, with a few "slave" 8.5ms SATA drives. Bumped system performance big time. Disk access is always the bottleneck until we get a feasable/cost effective solid state memory replacement.

* What I mean is (and this *should* be common knowledge, but people still use "drive letters") ... you can nest a drive mount within your folder structure. For instance, if you have 100GB of music, you really don't want that sitting on your system drive, but you MAY want to have it under "My Music"... you could move you Doc & Settings default to your second drive, OR just go to disk management, select the logical partition (let's say E: ) you want to store the music, go to edit and add a mount point so it also is C:\Documents And Settings\Destructor\My Documents\My Music\Big_Effen_Collection (the last folder should be empty, it's a logical link for the drive to mount to).

Then under my Music you can get into Big_Effen_Collection, or access E:, and any software that looks at My Music and its subfolders will see those files as if they are there. You could even remove the E: mapping if you wanted.
