Re: Nvidia gpu debacle

Only the G80 will not self-destruct in the 8000-9000 lineup?
Is the 9800Gx2 safe? I was actually considering it.

Almost sounds like planned obsolescence to me...

Re: DWARF FORTRESS

In the old version dwarfs would fall unconscious and be stopped from sleeping. The lack of sleep would give them negative thoughts, and the negative thoughts would make them tantrum.
Buggers would crawl out of bed and feed themselves to the carps. Always happened to my injured guys.

Re: Batman Dark Knight

Heard something about a writer strike going on in Hollywood. Must of ended in time to make this movie BECAUSE IT WAS AWESOME. Kept thinking at various points 'alright there's the end of it', but on it went. The Joker now ranks up there with my favorite villains. P.S: In real life, one ferry would ha...

second is to skip the axes and picks and just bring all you need to build them (metal bars, anvil, stone, charcoal), that frees up enough points to make a huge difference on skill buying and forces you to get a functional furnace set up right away Or skip the anvil and bring the cheapest picks and ...

Re: DWARF FORTRESS

It's an alpha. If you care about DF, please play it regardless of the bugs to bug hunt. Report any irregularities in the bug report section of the DF forum.

Happy bug hunting all!
(Actually I like buggy DF versions. Weird sh*t happens. It can be really interesting.)

Re: DWARF FORTRESS

This thread has been stickied for how many months, and Snipawolf finally got around to it...? Good luck to everyone who tries to learn it. I conquered DF back in the final days of the 2D versions. Good times. What got me hooked was the sheer cynical violence. Don't see that degree of (unfortunate) r...

Remove [baby_snatcher] from the goblins in the entity_default.txt, and: [PROGRESS_TRIGGER_POPULATION:X] [PROGRESS_TRIGGER_PRODUCTION:X] [PROGRESS_TRIGGER_TRADE:X] set all that from default 2 to 1. You'll get a fully fledged siege within the first few seasons. Up [frequency:X] in the creature files o...

Re: Flat Balancing- Putting the good bits at the start

Get a Job.

No really, a good read even for advertising. Glad someone is thinking multiplayer game design from the bottom up.
Single-player campaigns follow the same trend... inappropriate for a competitive multiplayer RTS
One of the major complaints I've always had with games.

Re: XCOM

Argh, I'm getting tired of XCOM crashing!
Do what I do:
Actually, the game would normally randomly crash with and without xcomutil. But the xcomutil keeps running, and I can just hit control+c which brings xcom up and right back to where it was before. Woo.
