    Hello TAL. I'm posting this today because I have been attempting myself at recreating my childhood experience of playing this game. I have to say thank you and you all gave great insight and suggestions on details that i could imagine are somewhat lost in todays modern day computer world. I have successfully emulated this game in a virtual machine and it runs Flawless. In my attempts to get this game running i tried windows 95, 98, xp,7,1 and after a sleepless night or two of tinkering i was finally able to launch the game. windows xp won't run the game at all; windows 95 (the one with IE) will run the game but not display right; windows 98 was the only OS that would run properly. I installed three crucial (i think) components to the system. 1. 256 bit color driver 2. Direct X8 (holy smokes this had windows 98 support!!) 3. ac'97 audio driver ps - my first attempt at making an iso failed miserably and resulted in the game starting, flashing a black screen and closing. The iso file was just 30 mb but upon inspecting the underside of the actual CD i could see the whole thing is written to so i'm guessing something was lost. i worked around this by putting the actual cd in the host machine and setting the cd drive in virtual box

    @Amadaun This is who I was referring to in the other thread. Her name was Cyra, Persian for "Moon". My "baby" from 1998-2015. Ironically, also the year my twins were born, so she briefly got to meet my new babies.

    OK, since I re-invented the wheel last time dammit, let's try again. Well, I don't actually regret that, it turned out to be a very productive thread (thanks, Vorians!), and I can think of other uses for that map code too. But wouldn't it be nice if we could actually see a result sometimes? So this time, I've taken an older piece of batch editing, which in turn was inspired by AB's floater-detect code, and used it to make all the Unique Landscapes logs into Qarl's Harvest activators that give you fungal ingredients. The result is here: Qarl's Harvest for Unique Landscapes And here's the code (yes, it does need more comments, but I'm losing the will to live right now . Need a beer, soonest.):

    I’ve read in various sources that male Brits aren’t fully developed until they’re 3 or 4 years old. It might be just muscle mass, but when fully developed they should be quite solid. Apparently it’s testosterone that gives them the big cheeks, or JOWLS, as Ama puts it.

    Even the different colours have different prices because of their rarity. First you have to import the cats and then you need to come up with the right combination to get the results you want. I seriously lucked out with my first pair because I had no clue what I was doing. Now I would focus more on getting a chinchilla colour, which would be pretty expensive. And I think it's time to announce that I got my site updated finally. Cor Auratum is my cattery. The logo was done by Amadaun. Thanks Ama! Btw, I didn't change the colour, I just put it on the banner with the dark blue background and I thought the effect looked awesome. If you visit on a mobile device with low resolution, like a cellphone, you'll see the banner change and the logo drops down and shows its real colours. I still have a few fixes to upload to the live site, which I'll do shortly.

    I'm finally updating my web site and I needed a bunch more pictures. Here is Pascal's response: This reminds of the joke, And now the kits have definitely reached the adorable stage. They will be five weeks old on Monday. When I open the door to the enclosure, the white one very purposely marches out.

    Oh my god, modcraft was such a shit show. The amount of gymnastics I had to do to get that damn darkbrotherhood.com website in order was infuriating. They had this horrible theme that they bought that they insisted on me using but it was such a broken, ugly looking piece of shit that I would have had to be some kind of wizard to make it work. In the end I just rebuilt the entire site from the ground up because it was so bad. They also had some really questionable stuff stored on the server for the site that I won't specifically get into... Those people were a nightmare to work with. Not to mention that any time I needed to get something done I'd have to go track "him" down on the vent server and butt into whatever fucked up conversation they were having. Then there was the whole part about me being threatened by Mr. Marine Moneybags when you guys were trying to split when I didn't even know what was going on. I have more but before this becomes the Modcraft horror story thread, I'll leave it at that.

    Here are some pictures of my queen, Ada, just before she delivered her new litter. She was really big this time. The second picture shows dad, Pascal, walking by. I have descriptions of each image in my gallery album, here. Here are some pictures of Ada with her new kittens. Sorry for the fuzziness on some of them. The enclosure is fairly dark and I had to snap the pictures quickly in some cases. You can see the cord for the heating pad in some of the pictures. After Ada climbed out of the nest and laid on the cool floor, I realized it was too hot and removed the pad. As I said in the description for this picture, quickly taking pictures can lead to some unfortunate poses. Now some pics showing the kits on their own. Where's mom? In the next two pictures, I'm doing the daily weighing of each kit. I think you can see why I need to use nail polish on their back claws to tell them apart. They are mewing for mom in these pictures and she's anxiously waiting in the nest for me to return them.

    For those that don’t know, I’m now a professional cat breeder of British Shorthairs. Today I talked to the president of the Canadian Cat Association as she works to get me set up with a mentor. We had a fun chat and I got some interesting advice. Here are some fun facts about breeding cats. Did you know that bathing a cat for a show is a 7 step process? I don’t know what those 7 steps are yet, but obviously just giving them a bath and blow dry doesn’t cut it. You have to get your cat tested for known genetic defects to make sure your cat doesn’t carry those genes. The woman I spoke to bought a cat from a breeder that was an excellent forger. She forged the test results to show the cat as being negative whereas she was actually double positive and therefore unbreedable. The cat was kept as a pet and with the woman’s diligence, has survived to be eight years old. The defect in this case is a heart defect. You have to watch out for Chinese brokers who will buy cats here to ship them to China. They wind up in big warehouses to be sold to the highest bidder where they are bred until they are dead. There are many Chinese who love cats and are quite affluent, so they care for their pets. Basically I was told to use translation services to deal with potential buyers directly and not deal with brokers. You shouldn’t have more than one intact male cat because they will compete for territory and it’s hard to keep them all satisfied. You need lots of queens to keep a male cat happy. I knew I was breaking rule no. 5 when I got a second breeding pair, but it was a deal I couldn’t pass up. Unfortunately the cats were mistreated by the woman that had imported them and I’m now working on getting them socialized. The male attacks Pascal on sight and he sprays (pees on furniture and stuff to mark his territory). I am buying “stud pants” for him, or, in other words, diapers. We use UV lights to find the bad spots (where cats have marked or vomited) and use products with enzymes and bacteria to break down the urine and remove the odour. Those are on order now. Female cats that haven’t been spayed will go into heat every three weeks from January until September. As the author of a book on breeding that I read put it, females are either in heat, pregnant or spayed. Heat lasts for a week to ten days. So I have screaming females, with frustrated screaming males, one of which pees all over the place if I let him run loose. I finally get peaceful silence for nine weeks if I let them breed. Then I have adorable kittens to wean and rehome. Vacations are now a thing of the past. Yes, I wanted to do this. Morale of the story: get your cats fixed unless you really want to breed pedigree cats. There are gazillions of unwanted animals waiting to be adopted. One last fact: pedigree is the term for purebred cats. Purebred is the term for dogs.

    [WIP] The Brotherhood of Old

    Hey all, so here's the gist of what's going on. I'm happy to say that the mod is indeed complete. It's done. It's playable from start to finish. What's holding back the beta at this particular moment in time is that I had an idea towards the end of development, and I just couldn't release it without that in. So I'm currently working on that, and it should be done by next weekend. Other than that, I do have a problem in a few spots where I'm getting that pesky dialogue bug (the one where you have to save and reload to talk to the person) so the flow isn't 100% due to that. I need to get that fixed before I can release it. I'll probably send it off to beta once this new feature is done, however. So yeah that's where things are at right now.

    Nice! Well, now I know what to ask my Wife for for Christmas! She always hated the way I looked in 7-11 specials. I'd just tell her it's not about looks, and besides with my hairline, (or lack thereof), wire frame sunglasses will hardly improve them. Sadly, I'm kinda sportin' a Picard these days.

    [RELz] Weather - All Natural

    New version uploaded. Changes: Vorians updated the weather filter for changes made to Unique Landscapes. Copied some changes from the Unofficial Oblivion Patch and the Unofficial Shivering Isles Patch. Thanks to An_dz for bringing these to my attention. NOTE: You must create a Bashed Patch in order to benefit from all the changes that mods like the UOP and the USIP make. This is not new, but some of the "fixes" that some people are proposing tells me that they are not using a Bashed Patch. Added An_dz's fixes to the VaPER Rainboxes, including position adjustments to existing rainboxes and new rainboxes to cells that didn't have them, like the Elder Council Chambers. I have also converted the readme file to a PDF so the table of contents and other links work better. I held off on releasing this in an effort to replicate the stuck weather issue, but my games wouldn't cooperate. I did have fog for several days, but when I reloaded a saved game while in-game the fog immediately cleared. It is normal to have some bad weather during certain seasons, but if you feel you have stuck weather, try reloading a saved game. If that doesn't work, please equip the weather debug ring and report the results here.

    Looking for New Forum Software

    Posting on Beth.net is easy, it's only when you try to be fancy that things go wrong, or add links which cause the badly set up spam protection thing to block you. Anyone saying "if you do [this] I'll leave" is just trying to blackmail Andalay & VM into doing what they want instead of what Andalay and VM want, which really isn't at all friendly, and will certainly be disheartening to Andalay & VM, and put them off even trying. End result could potentially be that they decide not to bother if too many people are moaning, and just shut the forum down, it saves them money after all.

    This is getting silly. We're not going to pick something unusable. Heck, I can't even use 4.x due to the interface. In order to do anything, I've had to look it up in the code. I've worked with phpBB, SMF, this stuff, and more over the years so I think I can speak from experience when I say that not all of them fit our needs, we just need to find one that ticks most of the boxes. For instance, SMF has better defaults but phpBB is more flexible. We just need to carefully evaluate things, this "I won't use such and such because someone else isn't using it right" isn't helping matters. It kind of muddies the waters so to speak, making it harder to figure out if it will fit our needs. NodeBB is free software so there's a good chance that we'll be able to modify it even more than this thing we're on now. It doesn't guarantee it but it does make it easier since we won't need to worry about IPS bitching at us for making too many changes. So let's just relax and enjoy the show. "You're in good hands with Allstate."

    I'm surprised at the "I'm out" stuff. IMO it's the people that make the forum, not the software. I'm sure that Andalay will get whichever software she chooses configured well, or switch to one that can be. I only wish I knew enough to be of some help, but my experience starts & ends with BBS's circa 1994.

    Hey Bong. I have here a VERY ROUGH draft of a relocation patch for you. The lightsabers are in a chest in the Arch-Mages Lobby, on the semi-circle table. Only mods that alter the Arcane U Arch-Mages lobby may conflict, and probably at worst, it would just be floating in mid-air, or superimposed into some other object the author placed in the same location. Doubt it's going to be a problem. The Bow of Thunder is located in the Chorrol Fighter's Guild, tower, lowest level. It's in a barrel on top of two crates, with a candle on top to mark it. I've never heard of a mod that alters this location, even Fighter's Guild specific ones, so I thought this would be a good place. I've altered the note for the Bow of Thunder to make it a more fun & comprehensible read. (Have you read the original?) I've also set both chests to respawn so you can go back and get more lightsabers & unenchanted versions of the bow should you ever want to. If you don't want that, let me know, I can change them all back. Bear in mind, I have not had a chance to test this in-game yet - at all. I have cleaned it in xEdit. The only LO requirement should be to load after Jedi Lightsabers & Bow of Thunder Dark. It shouldn't {doesn't} matter where OCC is located in relation. Sorry I couldn't do more today, It's been pretty hectic. Tomorrows not looking much better, but I'll try to clean some things up. I'd like to do things in a way that this will be mergeable into your Bashed Patch so it won't take up an ESP slot. If you wouldn't mind just testing it out & seeing if you can get at both items I'd appreciate it. Just don't save after doing so and your savegame should be fine with the next revision. I'll be able to work on it in about 18 hours, but I'll still be able to read your responses in the mean time. Regards, RM Lightsabers-BoTD Relocated.esp {Removed, see below.}

    Good point. I've added some additional background that captures the gist of the original OP, without all of the now outdated information.
  40. 2 points
    Agreed. I've verified several times with differnet configurations that they are placed in the correct worldspace for OCC. The way I made the patch you would still be able to find them in the closed city worldspaces if nothing else conflicts, which is why you were able to find it in the Arcane U. I don't blame you. If you'd just like to get to playing I can move the location of the rock and chest completely out of the areas touched by Open Cities, then you can just grab them and go. I'll go through your original load order & see if I can find a place untouched by other mods so hopefully there won't be any conflicts. This shouldn't interfere with the little quest line in Bow of Thunder Dark. I'll let you know what I come up with. As far as fixing the land tear in Anvil, without doing some heavy mod deinstallation & testing, I don't think we're going to get that fixed, especially on a save that has lord knows what already baked in. So for your next playthrough, if you plan on using the same or similar mod setup, I'd advise you to add one or two mods, test the problem area on a new end of sewers type save, then add more until you find where the land tear is introduced. When/if you get to that point then we can revisit this. Sound good? Edit: I should ask if you're using any mesh/texture replacers that don't show up in your list of installed mods? If they don't have an ESP &/or you didn't install with Wrye Bash, then they won't show up in your list of installed mods.

    Xmas Card Mod

    This is simply a Xmas card to the forum, though it assumes you have Oblivion up and running. To those playing doing/playing other things/games, a very Merry Xmas anyhow! (This started as something else and turned into a Xmas card, so I just ran with it. Gotta do last minute shopping, so messy as this is, it's gonna have to do. I have cleaned it tho, of course.) Anyway, no need to clog the download section with this, it's just the attached .esp. Needs Shivering Isles, that's all. Just stick it somewhere in your load order, likely right at the end. And enjoy. Or not. Oh, I forgot to say. You need to find an entrance in the Tiber Septim Hotel Lobby, it's their new underground club. Shouldn't be a really big puzzle though.

    I didn't know UESP hosted it either! I'm surprised you got it to network install. I tried that just back in April or so because my gaming laptop doesn't have a DVD drive and damn SecuROM had a hissy. Most aggravating is that I can't even UNINSTALL OB without the disk. My poor old Oblivion Disk has about bitten the dust, and I'm hoping it's got one last uninstall in it for my last disk install on my laptop. For years, once I got OB installed then I could play it using an ISO mounted to a virtual drive. Thank goodness for GOG! No more of that BS! Thanks for posting this Schtearn! I've got some old laptops with integrated GPU's I plan on letting my kids use, and this might be fun for them!

    Sounds good. One other thing I changed the ownership on the two containers to the player faction so you shouldn't run into any problems with being accused of stealing. If you want any stat changes on the weapons let me know. That's very easy to do, and I noticed (after I reworded the note..) that the Bow of Thunder is basically a god item. If you're good with that, cool. Otherwise let me know. Have a good day!
