    I pirate games sometimes because money, but if copy protection exists for software that is both good and not actually a rootkit, I guess that's pretty cool.

    I was already amazed by the two gamers on one CPU build. This is incomprehensible to me. I never would have dreamed this could be done.

    That water distribution block for the 7 gpus was choice.

    Hello everyone,
    Last week I like many others posted a list of Christmas gifts I received this year.
    In doing so I omitted a gift created for me Krazychic with a the help of Nickweb
    Krazy was inspired by my telling her of my love for photography, especially using older 35mm cameras.
    When she asked me this past summer for some photos of my favorite cameras and them some photos taken with them I had no idea what she wanted them
    and I was kept in suspense for months , she didn't even let on that Nickweb was helping her for risk of ruining the surprise.
    When I opened the package in Team Speak as Krazy wanted me too with Nickweb there I was literally moved to tears, and that's not easily done.
    This is not only far and away the best Christmas gift I got this year but the best in recent memory.
    It takes someone very special to do something like this for another and I'll never forget this gift or Krazy and Nickweb for creating it for me.

    It's incredible that it's even possible to spend so much money on performance for a desktop computer. I don't think you could do anything like that 5 years ago, and I don't mean achieve that level of performance (because of course not), but spending that much on the performance hardware... the difference between low and high end computers seems to really be expanding.

    Here's a demonstration of what I mean. The client does not have a modified map, and neither does the server, but the SAPP script handles the detonation.
     

     
    Whenever a player crouches and melees, all of their plasma grenades are then detonated simultaneously. Otherwise, their plasma grenades' detonation timers are reset to 0 every tick, keeping them charged indefinitely.

    Hot damn that looks nice. Can't wait to see what you two have in store. 
  19. Kvasir liked a post in a topic by killzone64 in Mental Mapping Team [MMT] WIP Thread   
    So to give a short introduction mental mapping team comprises of SBB MIchelle and Me, killzone64. this project was bred from an ill fated attempt at creating MPG4 for CMT. lets just say we didnt agree with the decisions that il duce primo was making so we made everyone involved in the project quit at the exact same time...
    we decided to make our own mapping team, with blackjack and hookers.....

    and so mental mapping team was born

    We began porting maps from later halo games that everyone claimed to be impossible to ingame (that forge world bsp that altis is using was ported by us in collaboration with altis)

    aah the early days of cheaply throwing stuff together and proving that it works

    we quite early on decided that porting highly detailed maps into a 10 year old engine kinda sucks and decided to move on to better things, aka custom maps.

    a few examples:

    all of these maps are heavy wip's only one map that i am working on is in the details stage.

    thats it for the introduction, look for more posts later about newer maps

    Highlands:

    after learning new techniques and getting some new and super special tools we decided to give porting maps another go

    this time around it is the map highlands, this one has been all michelles work (her baby ) and so far its turning out fantastically


    more updates on this to come later on.

    Rats Nest:

    This is by far my favorite btb map in halo 3, this maps story begins back before BSP extraction from later halo games became possible. I, with only a few pictures and youtube videos, set out on a journey to recreate the map as accurately as possible to the original (and i was pretty damn close too once i compared the two). once bsp extraction was released that project fell to the wayside and i found myself working on other things.

    a few months ago inspiration struck and i began to restart on the model, but this time i decided to shake things up a bit. the map is based on a space station now, with a visual theme comparable to the orbital cannon platforms in halo 2 and the map orbital in halo 3



    this map is my main focus right now as i work towards a level of detail comparable to halo 3 and reach.



    All of these maps are FULLY backwards compatable with stock halo ce but will also support the graphics extension opensauce. We utilize a custom tool that allows us to completely bypass the stock limits. This allows us to have both normal and extended shaders while also being able to include things like directional lightmaps and increased render limits. (These additions will not be visible to non os users but there will be no advantage one way or another, unless you like sweet graphics).

  24. Kvasir liked a post in a topic by tarikja in The Psychological Dispositions of Political Ideologies   
    Is right- or left-handedness also a social action?
     
    I think the slogan "pro gay rights" refers to the desire of being equal to others(non-gays) and points to a lack of equal rights for gay people.
    E.g.:
    Although I don't know what rights gay people lack in the US.
     
    I don't think that civil rights movements of the past change to social nonsense after those rights are being granted.
     
    How is less or a lack of education better?
