  • So that mod you played before DT locked the thread. Did it actually shut your computer down after it went "BWAAAAHafhsewkjfhsekfhsekjh"?
    X-Calibar
    X-Calibar
    At the end I believe it opened up a CMD.exe and executed something like :
    shutdown /p
    "/p - Turn off the local computer with no time-out or warning. Can be used with /d and /f options."
    It shut down most applications, but Internet Explorer I believe didn't close because it had a prompt appear about saving or navigating away without saving.
    I've since downloaded ShutDownGuard to partially prevent this in the future xD

    Personally, I would like to see how to load other applications, or webpages from CS...
    Just out of curiosity, does your username have anything to do with the sacred blade from Sonic and the Black Knight with the same name?
    X-Calibar

    Heya and nope... Haven't played Sonic and the Black Knight (or any new ones yet for that matter). But, it looks like it's spelt normally in that game? Excalibur.

    I was inspired from an old game, Final Fantasy Legend. There was this sword, XCLBR... <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote' ><p>Old man : "Did you come from the tower?" PartyMember1 : "Yes, we did." Old man : "Then this is for you." You get XCLBR PartyMember2 : "What is it?" Old man : "I was told to wait for a hero from the tower. You have finally come and I have fufilled my duty."</p></blockquote>
    It was a really awesome sword. And in other old FF games was called XCalibr.
    I misspelled the missing letter somehow, and have stuck with this ever since. It's nice to have a unique name. The less common, the easier it is to find yourself.

    Yeah, it's spelled Excalibur (should have pointed that out)

    I need to try a FF game some time, I've been a Zelda fan hence my name, but now the series looks dim for it's future.
    then again I have so much on my plate right now....

    I'm getting actual sleep lately! It's a wonderful thing. I thought for sure I didn't need it...
    Who would have thought I'm like a human. lol

    And yep, went to the theater~
    Ender's Game was quite interesting. I didn't know anything about the story... Though I would have preferred more history and a larger scale point of view, it was a great human drama/sci-fi. The ending though... I really need to see that again... who would have guessed D:

    I get more sleep whether I like it or not. >_@
    It's bordering on narcolepsy now. I should really keep it in check.

    I think I read most of Ender's Game a few years ago. I'm fuzzy on the story now, but it's quite interesting, if a bit depressing. Maybe I should read it again.
    X-Calibar
    X-Calibar
    Mmmm I have the Ender's Game book right here to read actually... Though honestly, I haven't read a real, paperbound book from start to finish in many years... Always letting other stuff distract me from finishing (like the PC!).

    I do read the occasional electronic novel, but... I'm sure I've been missing out. I read so slowwwwly though! I was able to go through it much, much faster in early grades... but I settled on a nice slow pace because it was easygoing and more natural (and nobody told me it was bad to settle on the easy way rather than pushing yourself~)
    I should probably try setting goals sometime.

    And as for sleep... It's 3 AM on the dot! Time to hit the sack ;P
    ~~~~~
    I feel kinda bad in retrospect. When I arrived on campus today for enrollment, two girls asked a question about the school when I had just arrived; but I said sorry, I didn't know. Thinking back on it now, I should have offered to help find someone who knew D: Though I'm sure they didn't have any trouble finding their answer...

    <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote' ><p>and I sincerely hope there's another proxy that will work for you!

    I don't know if my current proxy server will last long enough, though...

    The person on your profile page... it's Lavie, is it not? I'm just guessing; I've yet to play <em class='bbc'>Love and War</em>...

    Yep that's Lavie. I'm impressed!

    It's a great game, and finally the act I remake has been completed and released, just a few days ago... Even though it was originally released many years ago... Now it has some voice acting, new artwork CGs, bug fixes, new content, etc! <img src='http://www.cavestory.org/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/grin2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    And currently... it would appear that my current proxy server is lasting. (Let's hope it lasts as long as possible.)
    HEAR YE HEAR YE - The Bells have tolled! GIRakaCHEEZER has achieved VICTORY in Spelunky with a score of over 2.2 million. Beating the best score I've EVER seen! I have witnessed this with my own two eyes! May there be much rejoicing and envying, as a Universal Achievement has been unlocked!

    Congrats to him! ^_^

    Now please, PLEASE make Cheezer get some sun and sleep. He needs it. D:

    Also staying away from Spelunky for a bit is a good idea too...
    Eh, not much happened right after I brought back Zulf. The Narrator's name is Rucks, by the way. They all introduce themselves and the like - of course, The Kid doesn't get named in the first place. Bastion doesn't have multiplayer, would be interesting if it did. Honestly I might just stream every time I play Spelunky - with or without an announcement. Might be fun to see my mistakes. We could always talk more on mod stuff and characters if you ever feel like it. Maybe on here, streams, Steam(?), other things. Might stream again, I'll just change my signature or something. I don't need to mention every time I'll do it.
    Working on mod stuff...

    Also, Virtual PC for Windows XP emulation falls short of my expectations...
    I can't even watch a tiny video without stutter lag! Even pinball is laggy...

    At first I tried Windows Virtual PC, and I found it a bit underwhelming.
    Then I tried Oracle Virtualbox, and it could do everything I wanted my virtual machine to be able to do. The one and only disadvantage I've had with Virtualbox in comparison to Windows Virtual PC is that the latter has slightly faster usb, as opposed to the latter which, while having a wider range of compatibility, is slower than Windows Virtual PC's when it's working.
    Trying to create this mod like I want to, is really hard for me...

    @Polaris - Something Stirs, isn't a BAD name... And it does fit the game's plot. Buttttttt, I am certain there is a better name for it... probably.

    Tell you what... I'll come up with a few different names and put a vote to it, including Something Stirs ;D I think as the game shapes up, it'll be easier to pin down the name I'd be most satisfied with...
    Cloud Story was a name I have no regrets choosing... Well, except for the irony of the name relating to its progress!

    @Shane - I just wish I had all the time in the world to create! While not losing time with things I could be doing elsewhere and outside as well D: I guess all we can do is, try to make sure we don't waste our precious time! <img src='http://www.cavestory.org/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/grin2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    That's just randomness. And every person has his/her own time to spend on stuff. Except that people won't accept it as payment for some reason... hmm, this gives me an idea.

    "No Name" or "Nameless" would definitely not be a fitting name XD

    From the Gauntlet games, your health is constantly running out, so you are constantly searching for food lol.
