  • Guess today's my last day of Internet access. Gonna miss this place a lot!

    … unless I can pay the Internet bill tomorrow, in which case I'll be able to lurk around for another month. Best I can do is hope for the best, right now--

    Was able to pay the Internet bill, so yay.
    Good news, my computer's back. Bad news, nothing could be recovered.

    cloud backup + physical backup! Speaking of which... probably need to do that myself... Running on a broken Windows 10 (I keep deleting stuff in Windows) with old drives (5 - 8 years I guess?) that keep on chugging... If it still works, why not...! Also now I wonder if my old CD/DVD backups are still good...

    … cloud backup?
    Honestly never heard of it. Sounds like putting copies of everything in the clouds, which. Like. Kinda sounds disastrous since it might mean we'll get data rain instead :b

    Wow, 5 to 8 years. I dunno about my main hard drive, but my other hard drive was from at least 2011, and has been used for three computers that I know of (two Windows 7s, and my current one, until the hard drive failures).

    lol yes! I hope the cloud doesn't start leaking again... My firewall can only take so much...
    I don't know where they come up with these names, but the term cloud has been hijacked by computer terminology D: "Store it in the cloud", "back it up to the cloud"; is basically just online storage. Or you have various "cloud services", like Microsoft 365 apps (Word, Excel, etc) that you can access anywhere, without installing. Just need internet to access their online platform while they host the computing side. That's one reason so many services are now subscription based. Don't own the software... pay to keep accessing their services.
    Same with some gaming with cloud services. Where you don't actually install games, but play remotely if internet is good enough. No need for a fancy setup, when you can have a cardboard box that has internet connection but can run fancy new games D: Again... don't get to own the software... So pros and cons...

    Anyway, there should be some decent free services you can upload files to backup, if data usage is a factor. Just make sure to login every so often or it might delete your files from inactivity...! (Or can pay a premium.) For instance I signed up with the not-the-greatest file service 4shared, and like 10 years later they still have my files! Kinda impressive... (Do get a reminder every year about it going to be deleted, but then I login and all is well.)

    And wow, your hard drives have seen some mileage too! I've tried to reduce the wear and tear on mine since it started making the occasional burp and clunk... Using things like a RAM drive and a little SSD system drive. The software based RAM drive is nice if you have enough RAM to spare. So you can install temporary things or download files without it hammering away at your drive's life. (Have to remember not to shutdown without copying anything I want to save though!)
    The despair of having everything run at 3 FPS (or somewhere around that range).

    Jesus christ, that's fucking terrible
    October already, huh… just one more month and a few weeks before a certain DOOM another age-up…
    Some days are just harder to get through than others…

    I hope you'll make it through, Cibryll
    That moment when you walk like 2km in the rain for an appointment only to find out it's been moved 10 weeks later.
    Some say it gets easier to accept loss, but I guess it differs from person to person…

    In the end, we are just a brain in a mecha made of flesh and fueled with blood that is made by drinking water and powered by eating things that it can digest.

    I'm sorry for whatever loss it is you've faced. Do you want to talk about it?
    Having way too much fun with a Level 4 Fireball and Machine Gun. ^^;

    What do they look like?

    I'm… not good with describing them in words, haha. (I think the words escaped! But I'll try.)
    The Level 4 Machine Gun… I haven't noticed anything different, except maybe the damage value and firing rate?
    The Level 4 Fireball… I think it creates a Level 2 fireball when it hits a solid object.

    Best way I can think of seeing it is in Doukutsu Randamu though; Serenity gets to reach Level 4 (which, in her world, is a level above her maximum weapon level of 3, but details).

    Would love to see a Level 4 Crescent Moon, though. That would be a lot of bullets. ^^
    Can't wait for KH4, though all I'd be able to do is read about it.

    That aside, I decided the Entrance of the Xenoa: Lunar Shadow version should use a different tileset, so I'm currently trying to think something up that'll be fitting for it. Maybe a tileset from a past mod I worked on, I dunno.

    Progress on Xenoa: Lunar Shadow: finished the tileset for the forest between Yes Town and the Lunar Soul Castle (no relation to MagicDoors or Slither or whatever his present name is).
    Also finished Yes Town's first district, and… that's currently it. I haven't even worked on most of the scripts yet. -_-"

    I do have some ideas for the Gomu Forest boss, but those are currently just ideas.
    Also have some ideas for a few new outfits. (Hopefully I won't go overboard when I do get around to it, haha.)
    Progress on Xenoa: Lunar Shadow: started with Yes Town's map. (Serenity's house appears to be finished, at least for now.)

    One endless loop can destroy a lot more than I thought.

    resetting windows should not remove any of your files if you're on win8 or higher? and dlls, yeah, those can be a pain

    Aside from the Windows folder (which got completely reset), Windows 10 removed files that were in the AppData and ProgramData folders, though; I'm guessing hidden folders aren't exactly safe places for files. Kinda stupid that some games (and programs) would store save data there instead of, say, Saved Games or Documents, but… oh well. Best I can do is make the best of the situation.
    Just about 14 games affected by the missing DLLs, though, and that should be easy enough to deal with.

    that's a shame, but it does make sense in one way or another
