Crap! / Anti-Virus/Spyware/Malware highest count
« on: March 11, 2010, 03:52:58 am »
I'm sure that most of us have had to deal with either getting rid of spyware on our own computers or had to help someone else clean their machine, so I was wondering what the highest count of files that anyone has gotten on any of the programs out there.

For example, I'm running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on another machine, and it came up with 1769 infected files out of the 152123 it quick scanned... About 1650 of those were files, the rest were folders and registry keys and values.

This machine was so bad that it didn't even get to the loading bar of the XP loading screen before it blue screened, had to do a repair install and it booted up with Internet Security 2010 installed...

Anyone else run into a machine this bad or worse?

...will lose the game.

Crap! / lose/lose
« on: February 12, 2010, 03:21:48 pm »
Looking around at 1up's 101 Free Games 2010, I came across a very strange vertical shooter called lose/lose.

Basically, it's a top down shooter with aliens and you shoot at them.

The catch - each alien generated in the game is directly linked to a specific file on your computer. You kill the alien, you kill that file. Permanently. If one of the aliens kill you, the application is deleted.

Who wants to try to go for high scores?


EDIT: The aliens never actually shoot at you as I just found out by RTFM, but it is a very compelling description.

Why the hell is there so many boards about asking people questions? I must have missed that memo...

Crap! / QWOP Flash Game
« on: December 10, 2009, 03:27:33 am »

I just had to share this find with someone... I found this about a few weeks ago, and my friends and I can't stop playing it (or stop laughing about how ridiculous the game is).

Basic point of the game- try to run 100 meters using q and w to move your thighs, o and p for your calves. Not as easy as it sounds...

tl;dr- PLAY IT NAO

Crap! / Audiosurf, anyone?
« on: September 30, 2009, 02:16:24 am »
I recently downloaded Audiosurf, and I'm having a blast just trying out different songs to see what the tracks look like and such. Naturally, having gotten the IWBTG soundtrack, I figured I may as well try out one of my favorite songs on there, the Bionic Commando tune that plays whenever you're at a part with the Guy Industries building.


I thought that game was hard enough, now it's taunting me in another game!

Anyway, has anyone else played this and could recommend either music they liked while playing it/the most difficult tune you played?

EDIT: So happy I just hit the 'been logged in for 1 day, 0 minutes' mark!

Game Design! / DS Game Maker: IWBTG Portable Possibility??
« on: March 11, 2009, 07:19:57 pm »
With the semi-recent release of I Wanna Be The Engine (tijitdamijit, you are a godsend!), it seems possible that even a small child could now conceive their own IWBT game.

I was surfing on Google (a favorite pastime of mine) when I decided to try to find a program that could, in theory, play games make made in Game Maker on the DS. Well, the closest thing I could find is DS Game Maker (http://www.dsgamemaker.com) - a program that is similar to, but not exactly like, Game Maker.

If I learn how to actually use DS Game Maker (might want to start learning the original program as well) , as a summer project, I might just try making a port of the original IWBTG!

Who else would be interested in this?

EDIT: I can't grammar good

General Discussion! / SNES Problems - Certain Games won't work
« on: January 04, 2009, 11:48:56 pm »
Nothing too bad, a few games won't work and I just want tips on how to get them to work.

The games would be Wolfenstein 3D and Super Noah's Ark 3D.

Got Wolfenstein about a week ago, kept getting black screen and playing a single drum beat sound effect once before nothing else happened. I shipped it back to the seller I got it from, and I'll be getting a replacement within a week or so.

Just got Super Noah's Ark 3D today, and it does almost exactly the same thing! (The sound effect is different)

I cleaned Wolfenstein and Super Noah's Ark both with Windex and Q-Tips, still wielding no results.

However, I did notice that if I messed with the carts while plugged in, 1 in 20 times did I see any sort of graphics appear on the screen (all glitchy and blocky, but better then all black), but not do anything else.

Note that I have 9 other games with the system that work flawlessly.

Anyone got ideas?

General Discussion! / GP2X Wiz- Gimme NOW
« on: October 03, 2008, 02:59:12 am »
The GP2X Wiz is the 4th line of handhelds released by a Korean gaming company called 'Gamepark Holdings,' and the specs on it look pretty sweet:

* 533Mhz ARM9 CPU - 3D Accelerator
* SQVGA OLED touch screen
* Internal li-ion battery
* 1GB internal flash memory
* 64MB RAM
* SD card slot
* USB 2.0
* MPEG4, Xvid, and DivX playback

All of the systems that Gamepark Holdings have released are run on Linux, so you can program a ton of homebrew applications such as emulators, ports and the like.

I actually have the first iteration of the GP2X (The second handheld they released), and it is an awesome machine, save for the constant draining of AA batteries and the joystick with a button if you pressed it in (mine broke, so it triggers the button at random moments, not good).

The GP2X has a 200mhz processor that can be overclocked to 250 without it crashing, and it does an Excellent® job at emulating the old consoles from the Atari to the NES generation, a great Genesis/SEGA CD emulator, the one for SNES wasn't bad but it needed work, it had its own version of MAME that it ran which was good, and the damn thing could even emulate a PS1- FF7 ran (with no sound) at about an average of 50 fps during the exploration of towns and buildings, while it got really choppy during battles where it slows down to about 20ish fps.

If the first GP2X could do all of that... how awesome do you think the GP2X Wiz is going to be?
The price for it is about $179.99 (Actually the same price as the first GP2X) and is supposed to ship either this month or next month!
