Gaming Discussion / This is odd...
« on: June 24, 2008, 05:51:10 PM »
I wiped my OS the other day, because I was a moron and thought that something pre-existing was preventing this new sound card from working. But now with a fresh OS, all of the emulators seem to be running pretty sluggish. Kega Fusion, Zsnes, all of them. All games are running noticeably slower, and I don't know why. Yesterday I thought I got myself infected with something because I had Java/script enabled while browsing (this was before I got noscript).

Any ideas?

What kind of gamer are you guys?
I'm a very specific gamer. That being, I know what I like, and I pass on the garbage.

Guess what! It has returned again! It should also be evident with the link on the menu bar near the top of the page. :happy:

General Discussion / $@!*&% downloading
« on: June 23, 2008, 12:58:59 PM »
You'd think this would be easy, right? Use something other than a browser, easy to resume, can continue files long after a nice snooze. Except for that resume part. An entire night of downloading 63 megs worth of drivers go for naught, as the filesize decided to reset itself. :wtf: Yep, back to 0. Six hours of downloading for absolutely nothing.

[spoiler=Vulgar rant]Why the fuck can't these fucking companies make these fucking filesizes smaller because of people that have to use dialup?![/spoiler]

I can't view PDF's... Why can't these people just use text and png like the rest of us? :sad:

Well, so much for listening to music. The connector to the sound card just died. Can't get any kind of signal now.

What motherboard do you have?
According to CPU-z:

Manufacturer: PCCHIPS
Model: K7ASA, V10

I'm asking so I can see if there are jumpers for the audio (which is highly likely).
I saw no jumpers near the sound, but there are jumpers at the bottom of the board.

- Hopefully, he won't take it personally.
Well, you aren't Xkeeper, so I don't think you have anything to worry about. :tongue: Besides, you've earned enough credibility from a couple other members so it may be offset. In a related matter, MathOnNapkins really likes your LttP documents.

--Edit--
My link originally went to a post by somebody named "Disch-" which has now been deleted. I really wish I would've saved it. :sad:

No, no, the correct equation would be "Gamefaqs = eternal stupidity".
Ahhhh, of course! :blush:

Some tard creates a provisional account just to bitch about FAQ authors including jokes and political comments in their guides.  So I reply in kind.

FF6 and Chrono Trigger share sound effects, but the only connection between the two games is them being made by the same company. :cookie:

Now, a few more series that I've always heard of but never tried are Persona (RHDN), Valkyrie Profile (This very forum), Xenosaga (Various places), and the Soul Blazer series (Fantasyanime.com).
:cycle:

Now I ask, thou with knowledge, this question--I like Breath of Fire, Chrono Trigger, Chrono Cross, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, Lufia, Mana, Star Ocean, Tales,Wild ARMs, and Zelda.
Good set of games to like.

Quote
Would I like any of these games?
That depends. I haven't played any of the Persona games, so I can't comment on it.

The differences between Valkyrie Profile's 1 & 2 are actually quite vast (in terms of story). The battle system is very good in 2. Battles in 1 can take forever, because if you build up long chains of attacks, the Soul Crushes can take forever to view, while they are skippable in 2. Having played more of 2, I will say you will probably enjoy it. It does start kind of slow, but it's pretty good overall.

As for Xenosaga, they are all slow, mainly because of the immense amount of story you have to see. Luckily all cut-scenes are skippable, but the games still take forever to get through. Do not start with II if that's the first one you can get your hands on. It is by far the worst of the three. III greatly makes up for II, but all can be unbearable if you aren't prepared for a long sit-down. On the up-side, the series ties into Xenogears quite well, so if you have played that then you will be able to piece together quite a few things.

Haven't played Soul Blazer.

I'd add one more series to your list, and that's Suikoden. I haven't been able to get my hands on I or II, but I do have III, IV, and V. V is an absolute gem. III was the first game I played, and unfortunately it is viewed by many as the worst of the series. I thoroughly enjoyed it though, except for the many hours that can be spent going back and forth. IV was a weird adjustment for me, but it has many superior things compared to III (like flow). Many consider II to be the best of the series, but I can't speak to that.

Hope that helps. :happy:

:bah: I just read through the mess (at the time of this post, it was at 125 posts total, with ebmid2 saying Meeple overuses the word "troll.") and I'm wondering why my brain hasn't exploded yet.

I'm going to do what I should've done long ago, add the fucking twit to my ignore list. He's a lost cause, and he's doing it intentionally.

KG's too good a guy to not get a title. I'm glad he finally got one. It would've been so much better if he, Spreewell, and Casell got it together a few years ago. :sad:

Well, JCE's prediction was accurate. The Lakers were beaten in six games. :tongue:

No... because I know Zophar's still has it (I haven't checked yet.)
Indeed they do.

If you remember the reason why I took it out was because there was a bug when you exited the first castle. I never fixed it.
Ahhh, that I forgot. :blush:
