It was around 115 here last week...been in the 100s this week (with rain, which means YAY HUMIDITY DEATH). frown

Those of you w/ the fast typing speeds, please don't shoot the messenger (see attachment).

Edited to say this was my first attempt. smile

I'm looking to do some simple music recording (guitar/vocals/bass) on PC...I need recommendations for software. I've played around w/ Garageband on Mac and was amazed at how simple it seemed...is there anything similar available for PC?

47  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Anyone try the Zune? on: November 16, 2006, 07:33:24 PM
I picked one up today. It's very slightly bigger than the 30gb Ipod video, but the screen is much bigger. Video looks pretty good on it, and the zune software is very itunes-ish, so if you've used one it shouldn't be too hard to pick up the other. The included FM radio is a nice addition. The only thing I'm not seeing yet is podcasting support...but that may be coming down the line yet.

49  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Hooking up a 360 to a computer monitor on: September 27, 2006, 09:19:55 PM
Also many LCD monitors (at least my Dell) will have 2 (or more) inputs on them. I use the DVI out on my LCD monitor for my PC, and use the VGA port for my 360. There's a button on the front of the monitor to switch between the inputs.

Oh wow... I would pick up both the GBA re-release of FF6 and a DS re-working of FF6!  That's one of my favorite games of all time.

Assuming we're talking about the same FF that was FF3 for the SNES, ditto here. Easily the best console RPG I've ever played (I never got around to the chrono series, though it's on my eventual TODO list).
51  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Rising impressions! on: August 11, 2006, 05:01:35 PM
Apparently a lot of people are having the same issue as me, they've been bitching about it (and a lot of other random things) on the xbox forums.

*sigh*
52  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Rising impressions! on: August 11, 2006, 03:38:18 AM
Tried both cache reset things. Still no luck.

More worrisome: I took the HD out, and tried the game. It gets past that spot without the HD in place. frown

I've heard that you need to do the "clear cache" trick, though I don't know how to do that.


There's a trick? *sprints to google*

Edit: Found this link, and this one. Will try them in a bit.
54  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dead Rising impressions! on: August 10, 2006, 09:56:02 PM
My game keeps locking. frown I played for a little while, getting inside the mall and finding the other photographer. I had saved, then turned off the 360. I came back later, and the save game wouldn't load (it sat on the loading screen forever, with the "Judo Throw" preview thingie). So I tried starting a new game, and got to the rooftop with the odd-looking guy (2nd playable part of the game). When I tried to go inside the security office, the game locked up again (on the same loading screen).

I tried my disc in another 360, and it works on a different machine. Should I be scared?

You know, I am very tempted to do the exact same thing.  Yes, I am on standard def.  So the VGA cable might be the way to go here.  How much does a good one run for and where is the best place to buy one?  I know I could google that, but I'd love some impressions from people that actually have them.  Thanks!

Another quick question...  when using a VGA cable where does the audio connect?  straight into the computer?  And how do you switch between your computer display and xbox 360?  I know, a bunch of n00b questions but I am intrigued!


I got my cable at Game Crazy, it was $20.

There's an RCA pair alongside the VGA connector to hookup to some kind of speaker system. My Dell LCD monitor has both a DVI and a VGA hookup, so I have my PC plugged in via DVI, and the 360 plugged in through the VGA. There's a button on the front of my monitor to switch between the inputs. I run the sound from the RCA (male) plugs to a female RCA -> male 3.5mm adapter into my soundcard's line-out jack. Then the sound just comes through my speakers alongside my regular PC sound.

If you have any other questions, shoot me a PM.

I noticed the screen text during the demo, it was awful on my SDTV. It actually prompted me to go buy the VGA cable for the 360 and run my console through my 19" LCD monitor. Looks *so* much better at 1280x1024...now I really want a widescreen Plasma. biggrin
57  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Stitches? Broken bones? on: August 05, 2006, 04:09:02 AM
I've broken my arm (fell off a bunkbed), my finger (dropped a weight on it) and my ankle (crashed while innertubing on a mountain, hand 12 people land on me).

I've also been hit in the shin w/ a baseball bat (stitches required to close that up), had ankle surgery to fix the break (and stitches associated with closing that wound), and knee surgery to replace my torn ACL (and stitches associated with that).

The knee surgery was just a couple months ago, still doing the whole therapy thing.
58  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GH for 360? on: July 21, 2006, 08:00:22 PM
Bill over at Dubious Quality just posted a rumor (which he says was confirmed anonymously) that Guitar Hero will be coming to the 360. Anyone else heard anything of this?[/url]

That's a bummer...we got some rain and wind, but nothing that severe (Gilbert, Higley/Elliot). We were right in the middle of that massive dust storm the other day, though.

66  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: January 21, 2006, 05:55:52 PM
I finally 5 starred all 47 songs on Medium last night. I am now a Guitar God! (at least on medium difficulty levels).
67  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: January 20, 2006, 09:07:51 PM
That took a couple tries for me too. I still need Decontrol and that freaking Myth song (I forget the name...the snippet before it plays talks about HP Lovecrafts home) to get all 5 stars on medium.
68  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: January 13, 2006, 06:58:16 PM
Yea, the jump from medium to expert is tricky because of that last button.  I have all 5 stars on medium (for all the regular songs, I've got 4 stars on 2 of the unlocked songs). Still working on 5 starring the game...maybe you get more stuff to unlock if you do...
69  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: January 07, 2006, 10:36:48 PM
W00t!

Last night, I finally muddled my way though Cowboys from Hell on Expert. Guitar legend baby!

Now to work my way up to 5 stars on every song...oy.
70  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Importing DS games? on: January 06, 2006, 08:00:58 PM
I saw on another post people demanding that I import some game called Ouendan for DS if I like rhythm games.  

I do like rhythm games (Guitar Hero!), but am unsure how to go about importing this. Hints or suggestions anyone?

72  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Advance Wars DS - how to reset? on: January 02, 2006, 11:57:17 PM
I broke down and bought a DS a couple days ago...I also bought a used copy of Advance Wars DS. It looks like it's got data still saved on it, is there a way to reset it somehow?
73  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: January 02, 2006, 06:48:10 AM
I managed to muddle through Bark at the Moon on Expert. Can't get any further than about 20% on Cowboys from Hell though. :/

Some of the independent songs are tough too...Decontrol and Ready to Rokk I believe are the toughest...
74  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: December 12, 2005, 04:45:43 PM
This game needs a warning: May be dangerous to pinkies.  My left hand can only take about an hour of playing before starting to seize up, and I haven't even gotten to BatM on Hard yet. smile

Thanks a ton you jerks! I went out and got the game at EB over lunch....


Pfft, I went out and bought the game AND a PS2. :p
76  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: December 07, 2005, 04:11:28 AM
Does anyone know if there are any plans for this to come to XBox or am I going to have to shell out for a PS2?
77  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KOTOR2 Technical Help Please!! on: July 03, 2005, 05:55:01 AM
I had the exact same problem in KOTOR1 (haven't played 2 yet) on Dantooine.  Horrendous slowdown and warping.  I have a pretty old rig (GF4 ti4200 // Athlon XP 1700), but the rest of the game ran pretty smooth except that one planet.
78  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Are you in debt? on: July 01, 2005, 06:09:01 AM
Up to my eyeballs in debt, and we don't even have a mortgage. :/  2 cars (2004, 2005) that we're ridiculously overpaying for because we traded in cars that we were upside down in.  Credit cards and other various loans too.  *sigh*
79  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / RSS- am I missing something? on: June 28, 2005, 04:01:56 AM
I use SharpReader for my RSS reader, it does almost everything that that Mac one does, I don't think it'll aggregate based on words though.  Requires the .NET framework, however.

My wife got us tickets for opening night at the Gammage, but they were balcony seats.  Not bad seats, but hard to make out details on stage from there.  I'd seen it before, back in California, but she hadn't.  A good show allaround, however.
