I am working on getting my dad's computer hooked up with CrunchBang Waldorf 64bit.
The internet works on it. However I am wondering if there is a way to make it faster since youtube seems to lag for him.
He is not a coder however since Windows Vista seems to have taken a dump and wont stop blue screening. I suggested he try #! and other than the fonts being to "Generic" and the wireless being slow he likes it.
So... With this... how do we make it faster?
When I started out with this post I was starting with no title in mind so maybe I can come up with one as we go.
I am starting to become a rather big fan of classic text adventure games, because most of the time when I use my #! its during the day while my behemoth[Windows ICK!!!] is working on other things rendering the computer for the most part useless. So how does a gamer get by on a system not built for gaming?
You go old school... Text based Adventures / Mud / Roguelikes All calling to a time when you did not need the top of the line graphics to get some quality entertainment and in most cases it was more mentally appeasing that way. This is not to say that modern games are not great I love me some Saints Row the Third nothing like walking down a street filled with Hookers and giving them a good bonk of the head with a Giant Floppy Purple..... Eh you get the point Its entertaining.
So the point that I am getting to is that I was thinking about getting into making a text adventure game with a mix of a few things. Here is my present list of Ideals.
- Users should be able to create and load their own mods, worlds, weapons, monsters, stories and ETC.
- A basic adventure will be set up (Which I hope to get the community involved in the decisions of what said adventure is) for the moment I have the idea of an in town and its surrounding areas quest kind of thing.
-In town exists a portal the likes of which will be access to user generated mods / worlds and so on. [Think of it as a Stargate with a built in menu xD]
-The portal will of course be direct access to "Unlocked" areas of the game. [Say for instance you adventure you way to a field called "Crusty nails Cavern" that will appear in the portal menu when you use it next time as a travel-able place to Gate to.]
Above all of this I hope to build up a community of programmers and players alike.
Notes: I intend to write this in Java so as we release versions we can use Java's "Write once use anywhere" philosophy.... And because for the most part its the only language I have a decent knowledge of xD
So... what do you all think?
This is an idea a few buddies of mine and I have been kicking around for a little while now. I know its kinda been done already and we are not pros at it. Well I'm not at least but I was thinking "Lets start a tech talk show kind of thing"
So uh I wanted to get the general poll on what people think of the idea!
if you want to join in feel free to join us on G+ at:TLHS: Community Page We hope to see you there!
I honestly have not had any major issues... and the one thing I did have a problem with I fixed by using common sense with out the need to post on the forums.
Basically my sound was not working so Instead of posting about it, I said "Default sound Manager no work.... Alsamixer for the the win" and I found it had the setting for auto mute on and I turned it off everything worked like a charm and I am living happily ever after with waldorf!
All of these are good advice, I have been using Linux for close to 5 years now. Moved from Ubuntu to Mint to Arch then to CrunchBang. I have loved almost every moment of it. I just got a hold of the debian admin book from above. I will be getting a hard copy when I get the chance! I think I will be trying to do the source and making a deb file of my own. Could be great if I can keep all my favorite programs under one roof so all I need to do is update them if needed.
So liquorix is some sort of prebuild zen kernel? On the one hand, I find the lack of documentation on the liquorix site disturbing, on the other hand: When using a patched kernel, you should make sure you know how to read configs.rstrcogburn wrote:

It's the lawyer of Dethklok :-D
Although Section 6 is a legit section in the GITS story line so maybe there is a slight connection there.
Just a side note: Mine works fine, is there anything specific about your OS / Computer set up....
I'm far from pro but I have seen some crazy things on Linux like configuring a mouse the right way would render my wifi useless. I'm wondering if something similar might be going on with your setup...
Alright here we go with the two codes requested, Sorry it took so long was working to this point.
