  1. Hey man, could you do me a huge favor? I need really quick help with my VPS. I'm almost finished with the VPS server. Only problem I have is when I run the server it shows up on the server list, I join then it shows me glitched then disconnects me immediately! I don't know what the problem is. When I get on the terminal this is what it says:

     

    003d:fixme:ntdll:EtwEventRegister ({5eec90ab-c022-44b2-a5dd-fd716a222a15}, 0x10001123, 0x1001e020, 0x1001e038) stub.

      According to that output, you're missing bitmaps.map, sounds.map, loc.map, and sapp.dll. You're also missing mod.txt, too, but that isn't that essential.

       

      If that isn't the cause, I have had an issue like this occur, but it was due to an issue with networking on the server hosting the VPS rather than anything on the VPS or the VPS itself.

       

      Also, if ye be a pirate o' the seven seas, ye cannot set sail on a vanilla server and will need SAPP workin', ye scurvy landlubber.

  2. I may consider changing my name (and profile photo) on this site, as everyone outside of here knows me as Kavawuvi.

     

    Is everyone okay with this? I don't want to cause any confusion.

      It'll be the dawn of a new age. We'll have to make sacrifices, some of them potentially being live ones, but I think we'll pull through.

      Maybe we could sacrifice one of the HaloMD players?

  4. My apologies for not being very prompt on crediting news articles for these past few weeks. The truth is I've not been feeling well this time. I scheduled an appointment at the hospital a few hours ago, and I will be seeing a doctor next week. While I am in pain, it's nothing too bad, yet, so hopefully I'll live in the meantime. :P

     

    In other news, I set my cover photo to something cute/festive. I got this particular artwork yesterday from an artist who has drawn Kavawuvi, before. As always, I've left information about this artist in my About Me.

      Don't worry about me giving into demands about Chimera.

       

      It hurts a little, but it's not excruciating.

      It's not a fan of replying to status messages it seems.


      Okay this one seemed to work fine.

      It's a text-based web browser called Lynx. I've played with it before about 10 years ago, but I wasn't sure if it could handle a modern web browser, so I was curious and tried it. It seems to work fine, though.

  9. Huh, I change my cover photo every once in a while, but I don't think I've permanently changed my avatar in years.

    1. Kavawuvi

      Kavawuvi

      My avatar is a blue plasma orb. I made it from random effects in Pixelmator, followed by inverting the colors. It looked cool, so I went with it.

  14. We discuss many aspects of the game here. There was no reason for you to react like that. No one ever said anything wrong.  It was theoretical, not an attack, or planned attack of any kind.  The person who banned me is a member of ASH clan ~JUST AS I AM!~  The ban was personal, not anything to do with my behavior. As a matter of fact, I have not unplugged & reset my modem. They don't want me in there? cool, I don't agree with that abuse of power, but I respected their decision & have stayed out of there.  You closing the comments makes you look bad.

  15. Decided to try out Dolphin on my new rig. Using DX12 rendering and it's looking glorious.

      Star Fox Assault is another game that runs pretty nicely at 60 FPS, though there are some levels where it's locked at a really jarring 30 FPS. The widescreen hack works, but it occludes everything on the sides on some levels.

      Yeah, those GameCube games are definitely not graphically demanding at all. They're CPU-demanding, unfortunately, as emulation is pretty taxing. Dolphin 5.0, which was released a few months ago, is much faster and better than its predecessor, which is nice.

  17. Got a 1080. The last one in stock at a local Fry's store.

  18. I don't think I'm ever going to get my hands on a GTX 1080. All the goods cards have an order back-up....

    1. Kavawuvi

      Kavawuvi

      Eventually, the cheaper GTX 1080s will have to be in stock again, anyway. The reason why some of the more expensive $700 variants are still in stock is because other people are also waiting.

      My point was not to go and get a FE card, but that spending $50 extra for a factory overclock isn't a very good deal, especially when you can just overclock the card, yourself. A 200 MHz overclock is only an 11% speed increase, which although it's significant, won't make or break much of anything.

      Yeah. Those FE cards especially have fairly mediocre cooling, and may even have trouble maintaining a stock boost clock in some games with how fast they can heat up.

      Factory-overclocked cards can be a bit pricey. You can always go and OC it, yourself, anyway. In fact, NVIDIA flaunted overclocks of at least 2 GHz on their Founder's Edition cards with just MSI Afterburner when they initially launched the 1080.
