• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

  • ORGmaker is really weird on Linux... runs mostly fine but there's a LOT more clipping and the drums sound different...
    So my current laptop's version of Windows 10 committed suicide and my only real option is to install Linux. Will ORGmaker run on Wine or is there a port for it? I don't want to not be able to make music until I get a new laptop in June.

    My friend installed Linux and got the computer working. When I used it I never even got to the desktop. I honestly don't understand.

    If you're stuck at a command line after login, I suggest:

    sudo systemctl enable sddm
    Failing that: sudo systemctl enable gdm

    followed by: sudo systemctl start sddm
    or: sudo systemctl start gdm

    Failing this, I suggest asking your friend to install and enable a manager such as one of those two (they're login screens that, after login, immediately start the desktop). The fact one wasn't enabled already is a bit of a surprise.

    (EDIT: Given your next profile-post, it sounds like you've gotten things working)

    Yes sorry, I had to reinstall Linux and delete a few parts of Windows that were corrupting parts of Linux during the install process. I wasn't even getting to the command line or login, it crashed to the "BusyBox" thing before even starting up.
    I'm looking at getting a new laptop capable of... running an operating system for Independent Study and college. Any suggestions? I'm looking at the HP Pavilion 15 and the Inspiron 15 5000.

    Yeah my HP has stopped running again... I really don't know what to get. I don't want to deal with all the compatibility problems the MAC OS has with Windows stuff. I do hate Windows 10 though. I think I'm going to go with the Pavilion for now and be as careful with the OS as possible.

    All I really want is to be able to play Skyrim and Ace Combat 7, make ORGs, and run any coding software I'll need in college.

    I'll give you exactly one piece of advice, you can take it or you can ignore it. Either get a modestly priced and durable laptop for practical purposes, or invest in a PC you can upgrade down the road. Trying to play games on a laptop is a waste of time.
    My laptop screen broke and now I'm waiting for the replacement in the mail. My friend let me borrow his old smartphone. I hope my father can replace the screen successfully when it gets here. He's not the most tech savvy.

    It's not too hard replacing laptop screens if you know how to disassemble and reassemble properly. I'd recommend looking up what model your laptop is and see if there's any tutorials on how to replace the screen.

    My father was able to do it and I'm back online :D I'm just glad this ordeal is once again over... (this is like the fifth time this computer has had an accident or error of some kind)

    Hooray!
    So one of Microsoft's many bullshit background tasks decided to stop working and I had to reinstall the OS and redownload everything...

    Are your mods backed up?

    I was able to access the computer, but it went ungodly slow (the Windows Explorer crashed frequently) and it took 30mins to boot up initially before it was usable. With a large amount of difficulty I backed up the one or two things I didn't have from my weekly backups. So thankfully, I was fine.
    If you are making a mod, and want to use my music, please hold off on using anything from the Cave Story: Revival remix project, it's incomplete and I want its debut to be very specific. In other words, ask me before using one of my ORGs.
    Why do many Japanese anime take inspiration from German, Swedish, or Nordic culture? I'm looking at Attack on Titan and Fullmetal Alchemist as examples. I don't think it's because of World War II, though.

    Speaking of FMA and World War II... *Goes into rant about why I liked the FMA movie but hated it at the same time

    I'd say it's because the bases for most stories come from that region, so it's not uncommon to take some roots alongside the story.
    I have an ORG request. I'm not sure if you've already made this or not, but can I request the Attack on Titan theme? I' m having trouble finding music to use in parts for my mod, but the Attack on Titan music goes with literally anything, so I was wondering if you could make it for me? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mbaz5gwtQOA

    I was afraid someone would ask for this one... it is so hard to find sheet music for this besides basic piano that isn't awful... I'll see what I can do because this'd be perfect for a friend for a birthday gift but I make no promises.

    OK. I am looking very forward to this.
    I can get a PS3 game for Christmas but I can't decide between Blazing Angels 2, Oblivion, Assassin's Creed (the original), or Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X. I've played the same games for so long that I have no idea what I'm in to. I like flight and vehicular military combat but not really shooters, and I like open-world RPGs, that's about all I know.

    I settled for both Oblivion AND Blazing Angels 2. The latter is dirt cheap.
    I keep having this problem with Pxtone since I upgraded to Windows 10. It sounds really glitchy and doubles up on playing the same note. It's really irritating, does anyone know how to fix it?

    That's odd; I use Windows 10 and PxTone runs just fine. It lags a lot when it's getting to download a Windows update, though.

    "Upgrade"
    "Windows 10"
    I think you're missunderstanding something here

    jokes aside, i use windows 10 and Pxtone works fine for me, maybe just run a windows update, "reinstall" Pxtone, idk
    SuperJaws100
    SuperJaws100
    I've tried that... I guess I just can't use Pxtone until an automatic update just randomly fixes it or I get a new computer. Windows 10 seems to handle my sound very poorly; I've noticed that even ORGmaker clips a lot more easily now.
    Does anyone have access to the Portal Gun mod from WTF Story? I want to make a mod for Christmas for a friend of mine involving Portal.
