Re: General LRL Stream Feedback

Hey Paul - thanks for looking into it. Once it starts happening it can appear quite "consistently random", although it comes and goes to some extent - hard to say if it's perfectly regular without some detailed forensics... Here 's a point where it starts happening in the Turok replay. Fro...

Re: General LRL Stream Feedback

Hey guys - I know it's been confirmed previously that you record the streams locally for replay purposes - but regardless in some videos there are a pretty significant number of dropped frames. The problem is somewhat uncommon, but stretches quite a ways back into the archives. Most recently - as fa...

Re: Bill.

Unfortunately I didn't know Bill personally, but I would've loved to. What I do know of him through LRR and Desert Bus over the years, I'll always remember fondly. I'm very sad to hear of his passing - my thoughts are with everyone, especially those closest to him - for whatever little it might be w...

Re: PAX Australia

I saw philip and a couple other people whose forum names escape me after the Child's Play panel. It was all too brief but nice to say hello nonetheless! Next year I'll try to remember to keep an eye on what's going on LRR-wise in the build-up; see if I can make it to the LRR meet-up proper. It hadn...

Yep, the bug splat is in there. I didn't break the day/night cycle in keeping with the spirit of verisimulation. (Actually I just thought it was a pretty silly bug.) There will be a new version at some point which will have many new options; including the broken day/night cycle. Too many things goin...

Re: Share your Art with the world!

I enjoy drawing/painting a lot; never have enough time for it though. :( A thing from several years ago (full-view is 1920x1080): http://lanceburns.com/random/19-thumb.jpg Spent the longest on this of any other painting I've done (several weeks on-and-off). I sometimes draw fan-art crap for whatever...

Tim Hunkin's The Secret Life of Machines . A very entertaining & whimsical look into the history & how-it-works of the common household & office devices you use every day. One of my all-time favourites too. :) Cosmos: A Personal Voyage by Carl Sagan is more than deserving of a mention. ...

Re: The Official Desert Bus IV thread!!!

DBFH4 was brilliant; the best yet by far, and not just because of the amount raised. There were so many great moments, it's hard to pick out anything in particular. Fantastic job to all involved.

It's also tracking the LRR crew's progress in realtime; including an ...

That screenshot is from the older (original?) Saturn version it would seem - screenshot on MobyGames here. Either way Vaughn's got it.

Re: Computer Hardware advice

For $50 extra I'd say the performance boost is probably worth it, but either processor is pretty capable. Here's a set of benchmarks comparing the i5-7 5 0 (not the i5-760, which is ~140MHz faster) and the Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition. Looks like you'd be getting up to somewhere over a 20% boost f...

I already use Git for my code and paper. Git is a lot more flexible than subversion and easier to use for situations such as keeping track of one persons code. Fair enough. The advantages of Git are largely moot for my PhD workflow & dev environment, so I haven't bothered migrating. I use it fo...

Re: Computer Hardware advice

And the tip for buying a UPS is a good one. Not only will a UPS give the computer time to shut down, it'll also act as a surge protecter and catch any rise and dip in power. This increases life on all components, as the PSU has a much easier job in keeping voltage regulated, and so does better. Sec...

I don't know what general advice I can offer, but if it were me with that budget I'd probably go for something like: - Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3 Motherboard - $139 - Intel Core i5 760 (Quad core) - $229 - Corsair CMP4GX3M2A1600C8 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 - $154 - Gigabyte GeForce GTX 460 768MB - $189 - Samsung B...

Yeah, if I were to take on this project I'd either go with the Unreal Development Kit or a Source mod.

Re: Name that Game!

I'm dead sure that it's one of the numerous Space Panic clones/ports - I couldn't tell you which one though. A quick look around the net didn't help.

"RESULTAT" makes me think it's a Western European/Germanic version...
