yet another music topic by me in General
Infiltrator
Member # 5806

Try eJay, it uses .mix for its music. However, I am not sure it is the same file-format. Music from games are usually made in a special coding format to avoid pirate-copying.

Oh, and downloading and remixing old songs is in fact illegal, people just do not care about the copyright of old abandonware. I mean, why would anybody fine me for having a pirate-copy of an over 20 years old game, for example? The copyright lasts in 75 years after the death of the copyright owner and 90 years after he made it, if he is still alive.

A software is called abandonware if it is:
-At least 4 years old.
-The company does not support it anymore.

Whether you want to safely break copyright laws or not is your decision. No one will hardly care about it, anyway.

Binary is, believe it or not, quite easy once you get the hang of it. Just memorise the first 16 or so powers of 2 (1,2,4,8,16,32,64, 128,256,512,1024,2048,4096,8192,16534,32768,65536. It's quite easy, but maybe that's because I'm a maths nut :) )
Oct whatever (base 8), I've never bothered to try. Hexadecimal can be quite fun.

Binary only consists of 1 and 0. What you are displaying is the result of a bit (BInary Digit) times factor 1, 2, 4, 8, etcera and therefore making calculations possible. Just a regular letter on your pc-screen is a result of processing fixed binary values to a fixed image (fonts are sets of letter-images used for this purphose), later displayed on the screen.

Hexadecimal 10 means 16 in regular decimals. 1E = 15, 1D = 14, 1C= 13, etcera.

Octadecimal indeed uses base 8 and it is easier to learn that hexadecimal but just a little.

The base 10 system was, by the way, introduced by Napoleon. Since the size of inches, feet, etcera differed from place to place, he decided to standardize the measurements with the new unit:
meter

You can probably read more in wikipedia if you are more curious about this or just search your attic for your old high school history book.

Oh, and of course. I nearly forgot. Congratulations on your vain achievement of posting a large chunk of posts equal to the most basic 13-bit number and celebrating it. Hope to see more of you without the pointy partyhat.

You only need a black cape, you can dye them when you got crafting level 2.

If you need to know how to do this, just look it up in the crafting guide on tip.it (You find the guide in "skill guides").

By the way, I can not come tonight. I have homeworks and music to do/make. Oh, and I got to cook dinner, fold my laundry, dish, go to the shop... *Babbles on about chores; the life in an appartment gives you a lot to do.*

Did you, like, had a computer back in the 80's?
Download the game from this link.

I suppose I should add it to my old classic games archive.

Actually, I found one of those hats just after you left. It was just lying there, waiting for someone to pick it up. Remember when I told you the witches south of Varrock drops them? People does not unusually fight them so I just had to run pass all the darn magic casters and pick the leftovers of someone else's kill.

Can you code? in General
Infiltrator
Member # 5806

HTML, BASIC, GML (Game Maker Language), JavaScript, C++ when it comes to computer instruction code. 1+ Dpejoh, Enigma (Alas, I have never had an enigma machine, so I have never used it.), etcera for encryption code. And I can use hexadecimal coding, binary coding (11000000 = B), octadecimal coding, etcera for bit-coding. Then I know several font codes such as:
ASCII, UNICODE (ISO), UTF-8, etcera.

I learnt some (almost nil, but whatever) BASIC 1999, HTML 2004, GML 2003, JavaScript 2005, C++ 2005 (Knows nearly nothing, though.). The cryptation codes, I do not remember when I learnt. The font codes was quite recently.

As for proof:
BASIC
10 CLS
20 SCREEN #2
30 PRINT "Hello, what is your name?"
40 LINE INPUT A$
50 PRINT "Ok, so your name is " a$ ", alright."
60 END

HTML
My web abbreviation/acronym dictionary

C++
int main ()
{
std::cout "Draw some text on the screen."
return 0
}

I'll leave the other instruction codes, though.

Perhaps you should have been more specific? :P

You need to activate Java when playing RuneScape. When I played without having activated it, I gained a blank gray screen, as well.

If you had Java activated and it still did not work, then... binary cyberspectrum glitch?

While an IM is convenient, we would be obligated to be online all of us on the same time, same day and same IM-software in order to make these appointments. Using a Bulleting Board is better and easier in this case.

By the way, thanks for posting that tipit-link before, it really helped! Next time I play RS I am going to make clay pots. :)

Yesterday, when Thralni had left. A beginner followed me, looking for a sword. I helped him, taught him stuff and made him a dagger. He was not very clever, a bit strange and rather insecure with himself. Now, like I had in Graal Online, I got an admirer. Funny guy, he seem to be a complete n00b, but his lack of brain did not made me less friendly.

That is what I find sad with the people in the community. They are such cynicals and egoists. If someone ask someone for help, unless they knew the person, they will only sneeze him off and call him n00b. Why can not one just help them out and teach them to manage on their own. That would make the world such a better place, where the weak receive help from the strong and no one treats you bad for your inferiority or because of a low number.

Yeah, and I will probably, as I have said before, be on RuneScape on Saturday, server 67. See you then (hopefully)!

Ah, yes, I see. I downloaded the world map and checked the areas. It is that mining spot at the southeast corner of Varrock, eh? I get it. Yeah, I checked out every document and thingy on the website (except the pointless side histories of RuneScape.). Unless I decide to visit Sanna, I should be able to play around 7-9, I'll negotiate with Martin as it is usually he who need the computer in the evening.

It is not unusual that some rooms, doors, holes and the like are just there for looks and to make a more interesting level design. Compare with, say, jails; Lots of locked doors and rooms never meant to be explored but simply to give the right feeling of a jail.

Haha, that is right; I am much nicer in live conversation! :)

Regarding your request:
We will see about that. You see, I live in a boardering school and Thursday is the cleaning day, so I may be much too busy. Also, the computer is shared so I must negotiate with the other for it. I probably can get to play for some hour or two. By the way, I also have friends who are like, um, socially addicted to me, I may choose to leave to socialize with them, or, ehum, her (you get it, her ;) ).

However, I will have lots of time for it on Saturday and perhaps, if my home travelling allows, on Friday. However, I will probably be tired then and naturally prefering to go to bed instead of playing online games. It takes over four hours of busses and train travels to get back to my original home, Tjorn.

Well, if I get the chance later, I would be happy to get to know where I can find a fishing spot for shrimps and where I can sell my tin ores which I fild my pockets over the edge with. (which I also, to train my mining ability, littered around everywhere I went in search of a store to sell them at.).

P.S. I found the trading conduct of the community very strange. They just traded something without negotiation. I gained poison, feathers, bronze daggers and lumber for 8 bolts and 10 gold. I am not sure who ripped who. :rolleyes:

They are either adding new features, editting existing ones or adding improvements to the game engine. It can take a few hours up to a day of what I have experienced on other online games, especially if they are trying to fix a bug/error.

Thanks, but no thanks, Thralni; I prefer not getting to much of a boast when I play games, it makes me feel like cheating and makes me lose a bit of my will to play.

I am reading the manual since I have nothing else to do for the moment. RuneScape does not seem hard to get into at all, thank goodness. :)

I will go for a high level in cooking, mining and smithing. My purphose of live is, after all, to help, serve and please. ;) Or it is my goal at least, ahem.

OK, I decided to make an account myself since I heard RuneScape got smithing and fishing and that kind of miscellaneous stuff. Sounds fun to me.

My account name is:
eagle-tas

The acronym stands for, obviously, The Author Soul. ;)

See you, Thralni, some time on sever #67! That will say, when I have some spare time (which I rarely have except in school) and a computer that allows (or to be more accurate, a tin with internet connection). :)

GWBASIC, wee! in General

http://mio.discoremoto.virgilio.it/okgames

370 GWBASIC classics! Dang, this is retro!

Getting the list of games may take a while, do not ask me why. The titles are placed in alphabetic order. The name of the file is "370 GWBASIC games archive". It is in .ZIP-format and on 1192KB. The download site is a little slow so it may take a while to get the stuff down on the disk. Once you are done, unzip the file and place all the games in the folder where you have GWBASIC, use OPEN WITH and find the GWBASIC application and select it. Then open it again and the selected game will be automatically ran by GWBASIC. Some games does not have an exit function and therefore you will have to press the WINDOWS icon to return to WINDOWS and manually force the game off.

Enjoy the retro. I sure will! :)

EDIT: By the way, you can find a lot of other old classics such as Castle Adventure, Wolfenstein 3D, etcera, on the same site.

EDIT II: I do not have a clue why, but the games I downloaded were all password protected. WHAT'S THE POINT OF UPLOADING AND ADVERTISE GAMES WHEN THEY CAN NOT BE ACCESSED?!

EDIT III: OK, the password of the games are:
www.okgames.tk

The reason why the games were password protected were because copying these games are in US law illegal. The games are all abandonware, download on your responsibility. Abandonware are games that are no longer supported and at least four years old. The copyright, however, is still applied. I doubt, however, that someone will check your computer up and fine you for having old games from the 80's or 90's.

Indeed. They also have funny nicknames, Pizza Carton, Birdhouse, etcera. PCs are just called PCs or "G*****N, S***TY, D*****S, CP-DAMAGED BOX-C**P"!!

Yeah, that's what my older brother calls our shared little box when something is not working properly or at all. :o Can not say I do not agree; that old box really stinks. It even starts windows with two error messages. Great, huh? :P

Yes, the poison of an artila is really powerful - if you hit.

When I play as a shaper, I usually have one artila, two thads and two fyoras. It's out of topic, but it works well in the beginning. Alas, I suppose I could find a better strategy as I learn to make new creations. Gazers sounds like a good run.

6 years ago, I started a small freeware game company known as Tarana Software. My first game was a text game in GWBASIC. However, I was very limited to what I could do due to the gruesome face that I had no manual...

Now, 6 years later, a random googling gave me this:
http://www.geocities.com/KindlyRat/GWBASIC.html

If you had an IBM or Amstrad from the good old 80's, you will recognise this. :)

I am off to make a "cave adventure"-RPG with for once, line input; no more "10 if a$=inkey$ then goto (x) else goto 10"! :cool:
