  1. Those of you still on SP1 should seriously consider moving to SP2, there are soooo many nasties that need to be fixed, someone is probably buying stuff on your credit cards as we speak.
  2. I was going to say the same thing! My car has electric windows so I dobut I could open them underwater, however, I would wait for the pressure to equalize and then open the door and swim to the top! Actaully, this sounds like the best idea yet, if you get stuck underwater in a car, do this! Note to all convertible drivers - carry a sharp object in the car incase of emergecy escape, you can just cut the roof open!
  3. PC website thats full of tech boffs. Please help

    When you call people 'boffs' they are less likely to want to help. There are plenty of people here who know what they are talking about but like JonSt said all the recommend me a pc plix thnkzz p0rn threads are just annoying.
  4. Baten Kaitos, just poo, I hate playing cards in real life. Granted it looks nice, but I never played it far enough to make the most of it. Nintendogs, fun for 5 minutes. I'm sure there are others but I can't think of them right now, if you go back another generation I could list loads like: Turok 2 - Worst fog ever, far too long between save points. Whoever said Glover - that game was awesome but soooo hard!
  5. Xbox 360 Console Discussion

    Ok thanks. Looks like I'll be chopping up an old xbox pad then, seems pretty simple: http://www.ocmodshop.com/ocmodshop.aspx?a=223
  6. Rate the Above Poster's Avatar and Signature

    I like the matching avatar and sig, although I don't know the subject, I guess it's someone famous? Nice use of colour and text and the sig is not too big. I would probably be able to give a better response if I knew what it was about, maybe you could enlighten me? For now 7/10
  7. Xbox 360 Console Discussion

    I just got the play and charge kit as I wanted to use my 360 controller on my pc, but it seems that you can't do it. You apparently have to have a wired controller, does anybody know if this is true?
  8. Potential Upgrade of Shabba-X

    I would buy that instead of the Maxtor for sure! You boot into your Windows XP CD, then select to install Windows, but it tells you that it is already installed and gives you the option to run a repair on it. This is different to the repair console options, it fix's things like the MBR (master boot record) and important stuff like that. From my experience it has about an 80% of fixing problems that you might think need a re-format. I would expect that to fix your eternal loop problem. EDIT - Also make sure you have this checked (right click start bar), should fix your media player problem:
  9. T- 37 mins for Half life 2 Episode 1

    Do you have to have a finished save file on your computer to play this? When I reformatted my hard drive last I forgot to back up my game saves, d'oh!
  10. most annoying enemy ever

    Any of the silver coin challenges in DKR N64 on mirror mode, ZOMG! Right now I'm stuck on King Boo in Super Princess Peach but I'll get there. Also, I never finished the lass boss in Golden Sun, too hard. Or the last boss in FFX, theres loads more coming to mind.... ha I just realised I think I'm rubbish at games!
  11. Potential Upgrade of Shabba-X

    I'm not surprised you are having problems with a WD, I use them at home and they are great, but at work we have lots of problems with them. I have always used the caviar range though. I would probably avoid Maxter drives, go for Seagate or another WD from the Caviar range. Have another look at sizes too, you can probably get another 100Gb for £5. You have a well spec'd machine, how many RAM slots have you got? 4? Another gig of RAM would be ok, but I wouldn't have thought necessary. I can't advise on a graphics card, I still use a 9800 pro, but all I do on my computer is play WoW. If you get that chkdsk error again, give me a shout, I know a solution that will probably fix it (sadly not prevent it).
  12. Lost Prophets, Nu metal band

    Ha, whatever, I happened to like Limp Bizkit, I'm quite aware that I am just about the only one on the planet that does, but I'm more than prepared to stand up and tell people like you where to stick it when they are being just plain rude. Fake sound was definately better, but I liked some of the songs on their 2nd album.
  13. What counts as completing a game?

    Like everyone else said. Depends on the game. Examples: Animal Crossing: I would say having the biggest house all paid off and doing all the extra things that require money (getting the model of the shop from having savings etc) until you get to a point where you have nothing to spend money on. I would say I have completed a game when I see the credits, but if I enjoyed it, I would 100% it.
  14. Sony Fanboys

    That is why it was the cheapest DVD player around....
  15. ...problem is, I don't know an awful lot about Raids. I know different set ups do things in dfferent ways but thats all. If I say what I want, maybe you could recommend a way of doing it? I need good data integrity. Therefore if a disk goes down I don't want to loose any data. (therefore I think im correct in thinking it needs to be RAID 5?) It needs to be fast, ideally I want to use it for data storage when editing videos and backing up my dvd's, but I'm going to want to stream it across a network. That's about all, unless anyone thinks I have missed something?
  16. Body Harvest + Vigilante 8 = total poo
  17. I won on Lotto! (with free mini-game)

    I think its terrible how 5 numbers gets less than £2000 and 6 numbers gets millions. The prizes should be more spread out, say 1 million for 6 numbers 500k for 5 numbers etc.
  18. The RE Box of Mystery! (Apply here!)

    Damn, haven't been to the general board for ages and when I do, there is something as great as this, and it is probably too late now isnt it? It would take me a couple of days to come up with something anyway... BTW Haden, what ever happened to your secret santa?
  19. So I made this right: And this: If you put them on any background other than white, you get a white outline around the corners on the first image or a really bad looking drop show as per the second image. Any tips on how to fix this? I'm new to photoshop and I'm sure that there is a really simple solution, I just can't work it out. Thanks in advance for any help.
  20. I am at work at the moment, I will upload the psd file or my website later as I don't think I am explaining myself very well, then hopefully you guys will see what I mean. I'm not so bothered about the button, I'm pretty sure I understand whats wrong with it and how to fix it now, but the corners on the website are p*ssing me off. EDIT - Shorty - Ah I see what you mean about the corners, the selection tool idea will probably work now that I think about it. The back ground that I actually want to use is a bit like the revo-background, as in its not a solid colour which is why I want to get rid of the white all together, I just used black for that example. I'll try that when I get home and see what happens
  21. I might just doing it wrong in fact, I probably am, I know this sounds dumb, but any tips on the eraser tool, it just won't delete those white bits.
  22. I think maybe I'm not explaining myself very well. I understand what you are saying about the drop shadow thing, although I haven't had a chance to play with that yet, here I have illustrated my problem: http://www.redhearted.co.uk/test/redhearted-home-page.html As you can see the corners are white. I can't remember exaclty now but I might have made it on a white back ground and then 'trimmed' the transparent pixels afterwards, although I can't remember.... Thanks again for any help!
  23. Xbox 360 Console Discussion

    Is that the reason for the downtime?
  24. Xbox 360 Console Discussion

    Is xbox live down for anyone else atm? I can't get on either on my xbox or my pc?!
  25. Even with a transparent background I have the same problem, the only way around it that I can think of, is to make the background that I am designing the image on the same colour as the background it is going to be used on, although that solution isn't ideal.
