Yay. It's 2008 here in Holland for exactly 10:40 hours. I congratulate you all with this happy, new year and I hope all of you make something useful out of it.

I now will proceed to present you with a porcupine:

Oh, cheer up. Past experiences should not be the basis for future beta testings. If you really want to, just apply. The designer will pick you if he thinks you are trustworthy. And for as far as I remember it, you did manage to help me quite well, but you got problems with internet and such... things that were hardly your fault.

Strange terrain behaviour in the outdoors in Blades of Avernum Editor
Master
Member # 5977
Profile Homepage #0
In WtRM, there is this place where the outdoor terrain altered. The actual altering of placing stones and changing floors is quite all right, but there also happens something that shouldn't be happening: for some reason, the terrain "shoots up", making these large towers of earth. the freakish thing is, is that there is no set_height call anywhere in the script.

The script:

//Outdoor Script for x = 2 y = 1

beginoutdoorscript;

int a,choice;

If I understand it correctly, than 4pm EST is 9pm GMT? (GMT-5:00 = EST?) If that's the case, I'll be able to join. That means that it's 10:00 pm in Holland, and therefor I'll be able to join. I assume the chatroom is 'blades"?

Oh, I absolutely love the game Return to castle Wolfenstein, and therefor I am very glad that a movie of that game has already been announced. I don't remember when exactly it should be finished, though.

In all honesty, most movies I've seen of games were terrible. Think of Doom. That movie was horrendous... By the way, did anybody see that movie "Hitman"? I've started playing the Hitman games, and I like them a lot. I wondered how the movie was. is it any good?

Oh my god, that bar at the bottom looks really identical like the dock of Mac OS 10.5, you know. This has kept me wondering for alonger time, bcause the Spaces" of OS 10.5 actually have been for a long while in Linux already. I wonder if this Linux dock was in Linux already before OS 10.5 was announced?

No, the desktop didn't really change. All that has changed are the icons in the dock (got some new games) and the files on the desktop.

Oh, my dear friend, I don't think you know what has happened in the past two months in Holland, do you? Of four or five families either the father or the mother got crazy and killed off their entire family (children, wife/husband) before commiting suicide.

Every time I think about it, it makes me sick. What also makes me sick, is that you say that such incidents happen most in the US.

Bullet for my Valentine? I haven't listened to them that much, but the songs I do have don't really strike me as anything "heavy"... But then again, I'm comparing it to Trivium, as that's the sort of metal i usually listen to. For other, non-metal fans, Bullet for my Valentine may sound heavy.

1. What was the last song you listened to?

Detonation, by Trivium *melts away*

2. What was the last song / album you bought?

Pablo Honey, by Radiohead

3. What is your favorite song?

That's a tough one, because for each band I have at least three favorite songs. If i think hard I can say... that I have no idea. I can give a short list of what songs I love:

By trivium:
Pulling the strings of your martyr;
This world can't tear us apart;
The Rising;
The Crusade;
etc... If I go on I'll have a list of twenty songs, so...

By Radiohead:
I have Five albums of them: OK Computer, The Bends, Pablo Honey, Amnesiac and Kid A, and it's only Kid A I don't like as much as the other four. I think that should give a good picture of what I like of them.

I think I'll stop now with this list, it'll be getting to long, since I also like Rammstein, Rhapsody, Apocalyptica, ABBA, Kamelot, Machine Head, Maroon 5, The verve and Wintersun. Besides all those, i've got tons of classical stuff that I love.

Something that does need a special mention, is "Still Alive", a song sung by "GLaDOS" at the very end of the game "Portal", which is a hilarious and beautiful in a chilling way, song.

4. What is your favorite record album?

This definetily depends on my mood, but for now I'll go with "The Crusade", by Trivium.

5. What song do you think has the best music?

Oh god... Just look at question 3.

6. What song do you think has the best lyrics?

Um... I have no idea, since I don't often really listen to the lyrics. Of what I can remember, though, I'll have to go with either Fitter Happier or Exit Music by Radiohead, or Suffocating Sight or This world can't tear us apart by Trivium.

7. Who is your favorite composer?

Tschaikowsky!

8. Who is your favorite lyricist?

No idea, I don't think I have one

9. Who is your favorite performing artist?

Trivium

10. Is there any song that has ever just hit you like a brick? What was it, and why?

Many, actually. No matter what the style is, it's often because the song is incredibly sad or packed with aggression, enough to make me stop with what I'm doing. A good example would be "Exit Music" by Radiohead, which is an extremely sad song. Something else is "Pull harder on the strings of your martyr" by Trivium. That hit me like a brick because of just one single bar. That is one of the most beautiful bars I've ever heard in my life... Same goes

11. What is that one song that you just can't stand?

No idea...

12. What artist do you absolutely hate?

Morbid Angel.

13. If a group of SpiderWebbers got together to start a band, who would be in it, and what genre would they perform?

They would perform either classical or metal. If it would be classical, probably Nico and maybe myself, if it were metal... I have no idea. Maybe Kel? Tyran? Drakey? Kingy? I honestly don't know.

EDIT: This post has become a lot longer than I wanted it to become, but oh well. All I wanted to say, is that I've been to "The black Crusade" just yesterday, a concert with Shadows Fall, Arch Enemy, Dragonforce, trivium and Machine Head. Hell, I haven't had such fun for a few weeks.

However, I did write that "dramatic" post and it's true that I hardly post here. Usually because there isn't much to post about, and why say something when there is nothing to say?

Thanks, and we talked about that. I don't really need them all through, since I can Adium for all, but MSN has some options which Adum doesn't have for the MSN stuff, and I simply like iChat's look better than Adium. Also, using them all three gives me some sense of tidiness, since I will always know who could have tried to contact me when a certain client is asking for attention. Yoy could say that each client has it's own group: MSN is mostly for school friends, Adium is for Xfire and has some poeple I hardly talk with (but it's a great spying utility if you want to know if somebody is playing a game) and iChat is for AIM and has all SW people.

I watched The Hick Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie last friday, and though I think it's by no means up to the standard that the book set, it is definitely a very funny film that becomes better after a few beers.

It was a derisive way of saying 'why on Earth focus on making Avernum and Geneforge XFire compatible when BoE is easier to do it with, and better besides?' Thralni, your post wasn't relevant to that and I was just being trivial by dismissing it; I'm not a programmer and not qualified to discuss what you were talking about. Then again, I've made a career of dispudanding gustibus, so there you go.

Either I didn't understand what you said, or my post was all but irrelevant to what you said. Reading your post, I understood that the way you think Xfire works is like this:

"The game has to be made compatible with Xfire."

Now that is plain wrong for all I know: it's just the other way around, which is why I asked if you read my post. For if you didn't and the above is indeed how you think Xfire works, than it is your post that is mostly irrelevant.
