Expand


As you probably see by the title, after 18+ years, we are closing down our site for good. Unfortunately, due to tough times with the economy, and the lack of enough donations to keep our community afloat, I have decided to shut down our site. We will keep the TS3 going as that is what we use mostly, and we have the funds to keep that going for now, but, we just don't have enough to keep both going. I always said this was a community run site, and I just can't keep leaving it up to the few that kept it going. I don't think it's fair to keep doing that, and also, I just can't afford that my self due to medical and major expenses.

Now, to answer some questions I am sure some of you may have:
    • Q. Is it a definite that you are closing your site?
    • A. As of right now, yes. Unless we raise enough to support both the site and TS3 for the next year, it is a definite thing.


    • Q. When will the site shut down?
    • A. First week of April. The bill is due on April 8th, but I will probably shut down at the start of April.


    • Q. Is your clan shutting down?
    • A. Short answer, I don't know. This will be up to the clan to decide. We are keeping our TS3 for comms, but, from there, I can not say at this time.


    • Q. Am I doing this as a scare tactic to get donations? (I know some of you may think this.)
    • A. Short answer, absolutely not.

      Some of you that were on TS3 last year around when this issue came up before, will remember that there was an incident that almost screwed me financially, so much so that I almost stepped away right then and there permanently. For those that don't come to our TS3, more and likely don't know about this. There were a few that were on, like Delrick, Sani, and Wolf, that should remember my freak-out. What most don't know about me, is medically, I'm not good, and slowly getting worse. Like most of you, I live on a fixed budget, so when that incident happened, that day, I said to them, never again, if the sites has to go, it's going. I've dedicated thousands of dollars to the community and the site, as well as tens of thousands of hours working on this community, as well as developing/helping for others. I think I have done enough.


    • Q. What are you going to do with your scripts that you have?
    • A. I am probably going to move certain ones to the Evo site & Lonestars site, and maybe to a few others trusted sites if they come and ask permission.


    • Q. Will you maintain your scripts?
    • A. I can't promise anything. More and likely not. I may do the ones that are attached to the CMS by default, but, I don't want to lock my self into any commitment, for I am only going to be working off my local, and even then, I can't truly test everything just on that.


    • Q. You have stated before that if your site shuts down, then you will stop coding for Evo. So, are you going to stop?
    • A. Short answer, Yes and No.

      I will continue working with Lonestar on the current releases and doing stuff there, along with support. I just really don't see my self coming out with any major stuff like the Lotto and various other mods, for I just won't have access to really test them, also, won't have the motivation to come up with them. Almost everything I have developed, has been, first and foremost, developed for my site. Once done, at first, if others liked what I did, I would release it, eventually, I just started releasing it, but it was always something I wanted for my site.


    • Q. What are you going to do with your theme that I have on my site here?
    • A. I have been asked about this a few times now, so I figured I post this. The theme I use here is a commercial theme. This was bought and paid for out of my own pocket as a base starting point, then heavily modified to what I wanted in a theme. With themes, I never really knew where to start from, hence why I never made one from the ground up and called myself a theme developer. I always started with something as a base template, then I go to town. So, it is not fair to Lonestar for me to give or sell this item, but, if you buy it from Lonestar, then for a small fee, I will modify it to be similar to this look, but, not exact.



Question and comments, please post.
So many of you read these topics, but never speak up. I LIKE FEED BACK DAMMIT!, zwinkern LOL.

J/K...  zunge zeigen

But in all seriousness, if you have any thoughts, feel free to post here. If you need to talk in private, send me a PM, come on TS3, or Steam message me, but only do that if your thoughts or suggestions need to be private. It's been a long road to travel, and I am sorry to see it come to an end, and in “the immortal words of Socrates, when he said... I drank what?”. Sorry, I meant, "There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.".

If you didn't catch that first quote, you're missing out on a classic.

 Forum:   PC & Codeing Talk   Posted: Thu Jan 13, 2022 9:46 am   Subject: Re: Winzip Driver Updater
One trick you can do with something like Driver Booster, is to use it as a free scan tool, let it tell you what is out of date, then you manually update it with just a few clicks.
Just note, sometimes the scan may show that there is something new where there really isn't, or, Windows has not marked it as new.

  1. Scan your PC using the free scan and see what is out of date.

  2. On your taskbar/start menu, in the search, type Device Manager and open that. If you can't find it, and you can make it into command prompt, they just type devmgmt.msc and that will open it as well.

  3. What ever driver is out of date, find it in the Device Manager, right click on it and select update.


That is an easy way of doing it for free.

For Example, on my scan I just did, I see

Network adapters
Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller


That needs updating. So, I go to the Device Manager and go to Network adapters, and click the arrow on the far left to list everything. I find the "Realtek PCIe GbE Family Controller", which in my case is at the top. I right-click on it and select Update driver->Search automatically for drivers.
When I did the check, it said that I already had the best driver. Now, it doesn't mean that there isn't a better driver, this is just Windows saying at this time, as far as it knows, you have the best driver that they have deemed safe & stable to use. If there is no update, you sometimes can check Windows update to see if there is one there, which in my case it gave me a button to "Search for updated drivers on Windows Update". But, or you can go to the device's manufacture's website and download the driver your self and update it manually if that turns up nothing, or you just don't want to use the Windows Update.

But again, Graphic drivers, and this is for everyone, go through the manufacture for those, do use Windows Update or another 3rd party update system. I know both AMD and NVIDIA have systems for their product that automatically check for the best driver for you, so use those tools and that's it for those devices.

After some looking, what I have found is no, it is not safe to use. Several site reports are saying it contains malware/trojan. That's why I removed the link.
I have been using IObits Driver Booster for years. It says it's "free", but, it will scan, but not update all drivers unless you buy, (there are ways around buying it). I honestly don't think it should be a separate charge if you buy Advanced System Care. I think it should come free as it is only a system that you would run, maybe, once every few months.

Overall, the only 2 products I use really from IObit is the Driverbooster and the Uninstaller. I like it because it gets rid of all files and unless reg keys. I do use the ASC, (Advanced System Care), maybe once a month, and use my system utility that I wrote every night.

In reality, Windows updates all the necessary drivers, and really, the only driver that you really need to keep updating out of all of them is the graphics driver which I would only ever install from the manufacture. Like, with my 3070, I go into NVIDIA GeForce Experience and download that driver directly from there.

Another system I have heard of but never used is Bit Driver Updater, ( bitdriverupdater.com ). That one there I don't know anything about, so I can't say if they are good, but so far, I havn't seen anything saying it's bad except for that it keeps trying to get its other programs, and IObit does the same thing.

yeah, the single most expensive components for any PC these days is going to be the GPU. The next would be the Mobo and CPU.

I did forget to say, if you decide to go with a prebuilt like hp, dell, ect..., the odds of you being to upgrade that PC in the future is slim, since companies like "Dell/Alienware", they like to use proprietary hardware so using adding your own stuff may not be an option, where system integrators use stuff that you can buy off the shelves to make their PC's.

I personally don't use VR, so I am not sure what are the best options for VR systems. I can only speak of gaming PC's as a whole, for that's what I use. Linus from Linus tech tips would be a great person to ask for I know he does a bit of VR gaming when home with his kids. His community on his forums would also be great, so ask there.

 Forum:   PC & Codeing Talk   Posted: Sun Jan 02, 2022 1:48 pm   Subject: Re: Gaming Desktop for VR (Best place to buy)
Due to chip shortages and scalpers, there is not much out there. I do highly recommend not going on eBay to buy anything, for most of that is scalpers as well as a bunch of scammers.

Also, due to Windows 11 making most computers using mobo's that came out prior to 2018 obsolete within a few years, as well as the used market and most of the cheap PC's out there. Unfortunately, I only recommend either going through a system integrator like Cyberpower, IBuyPower, Digital Storm, ect…, (though won't usually be cheap), or a premade like Dell, hp, Alienware, (Alienware = overpriced Dell), ect...

I had the tough choices 15 months ago when my PC died. If you are not worried that the PC not supporting Windows 11, you can probably go to a system integrator and I am sure they have binned parts, but no matter what, GPU prices are what they are. Luckily, system integrators don't typically mark them up as they would get called out for that, and some system integrators may be able to help you on a budget if you call, especially if it means they can dump some older parts that are not supported by Windows 11, as long as you specify that you are not interested in it running Windows 11. Granted that, you will also need to inform them that it needs to be specifically for VR.

Hopefully, by the time Windows 10 is no longer supported, (in a few years), Steams Linux distro that is due to come out on their Steam Deck in a couple of months, is supposed to have all games found on Steam able to be run without hitches. The problem with Linux as I see it, especially in gaming, is;
  1. Companies like Nvidia don't give a shit about Linux, hence why Nvidia drivers for Linux are terrible.

  2. The Linux community, (Being broad here, but I know not all of them are this way.), is very uptight about their specific Distro that they run, and for the most part refuse to look at it from a standpoint of someone coming in that just wants something to work, (like Windows almost does). Windows has its flaws, and I understand the power of terminal, but, I am sure that a bunch of crap done through terminal could have been improved and simplified with just most click options. I am not saying remove terminal since I know power users love & use it, just, get with the times a bit.

  3. Linux just never had the money behind it to really get those improvements out there. But, most can hope that changes with the release of the Steam version.


There are more, but those are the three big ones that I can think of.
I will shut up now before I write a long book.

 Forum:   PC & Codeing Talk   Posted: Fri Dec 31, 2021 11:01 pm   Subject: LM-BlackMagic Memberlist update
Okay, first of all, WOOT, first post of 2022.

Now, enough of being a dork. I was again going through, and I noticed an issue with my member's list on my site. The Online/Offline status was missing. After some investigation, I found that it was caused by bootstraps CSS and all I needed to do was add in some CSS. But while I was at it, I saw that the module was using a table and wasn't responsive. In further investigation, I found that it was handled by the theme, so attached, is the fix to make it responsive. But, for the other stuff, you are going to need to edit your file. I will go over how below.

To install the theme change to make your members list responsive, just download the attached file and extract the public_html file to your desktop. Then upload the contents to the root of your site, keeping the file structure.

You can see the changes working here:

Here are the changes:

[ How to fix the missing Online/Offline text. ]

  1. Open:
    public_html/themes/LM-BlackMagic/style/style.css

  2. Add In:

    Code: [ Select all ]

    .tooltip {
       opacity: 100;
       font-weight: 900;
       letter-spacing: 1px;
    }


  3. Save & Close


Just know, you can remove the font-weight and the letter-spacing if you don't want them. That is just what I use on my site, well, except I use 2px for letter-spacing. Now, I did run into another issue with the LMBM theme. That was, the theme uses the same color for both row2 and row3, and the controls to change it were not in the ACP where I was hoping it would be, but instead, hard coded inside the forums.css.

[ Optional ]
This next fix is optional and only if you want to have a slight alternating color for the member list instead of having the listing a single color.

  1. Open:
    public_html/themes/LM-BlackMagic/style/forum.css

  2. Find:

    Code: [ Select all ]

    .row2,
    .row3 {
       background-color: #1a1d1f;
       border: 1px solid #000;
       padding: 5px;
    }


  3. Replace With:

    Code: [ Select all ]

    .row2,
    .row3 {
       border: 1px solid #000;
       padding: 5px;
    }

    .row2 {
       background-color: #111;
    }

    .row3 {
       background-color: #181818;
    }


  4. Save & Close


Of course, edit those colors to your liking.
Remember, if you do any CSS changes, you will need to clear your browser cache before you will see the change.

 Forum:   PC & Codeing Talk   Posted: Thu Dec 30, 2021 12:30 pm   Subject: AUC group listing update & LM-BlackMagic AUC listing fix
Please, read all the way through before downloading anything!

Okay, a couple of days ago, I was messaging some people and I was going through the user groups that are at the bottom of my forums on my clans website, where you see:

Legend:  [ Administrator ]  [ Recruiter ]  [ Commanders ]  [ Clan Member ]  [ Clan Friend ]  [ User ]  [ Banned ]  [ Web Dev. / Coder ]  [ DonoBot ]


Well, I noticed when I clicked on that and went to view the list of members, some aspects of it didn't look right or wasn't working, and because of the theme I am using, it doesn't have the icon images, so it was just displaying the alt text along with the missing image icon, (depending on your browser). So, to keep up with my theme and keeping image files to the minimum, I redid it using font awesome icons instead of images that the themes usually comes with. If you are on the latest version of Evo, then you already have Fontawsome icons working on your site. Here is an example of the before and after:

Expand

Mind you, that you can theme it if you wanted to. This was done just because I don't have the images and didn't want to go that route.
However, there is a fix in there as well. If you moused over the original that comes with the system, just say, over the PM or the email, you will see it say, "Send %s a private message", or for the email, "Send %s an email".

Well, it was an easy fix changing the %s to actually show the username instead of the %s, but I figured while I am at it, I am going to do some other changes, like getting rid of old depreciated HTML like the old font, and upgrade it with a span and a inline style to it. I also got rid of all the white spaces that were in there. Another change I did was I added brackets around the expressions. I know they are not needed, but for easier readability, they should be in, especially when someone that didn't write it in the first place comes in looking for something. There is no performance gain by not having them and more and likely, (depending on some cases), all you are really doing is making it harder for others to read it.

So, If you want to use this fix which now using Fontawsome icons instead of the images, then download the attachment marked "AUC_Listing_Fix".
The other file is for those of you running the LM_BlackMagic theme. This just makes that section responsive ONLY for that theme.

Both are easy to install, just extract the folder and upload the contents of the public_html to your root of your site keeping the folder structure.
