      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

  1. Uniformity Mods for MW: Gameplay vs. Text

    We're also back working on the UMP, although I'm not sure how much of this we touch. I think there were a few things in dialogue, but it was so much to go through that we've just included Thepal's and Quorn's fixes at this point.

    I always thought Wes Johnson was bigger than that.
  3. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    Hear hear! Exactly. If Jeremy's accusers don't talk to the police and seek charges being laid against him, then he will have a perfectly valid counter-suit: libel. In that case, I know exactly what I'm talking about because I've hired a lawyer to send certain individuals a nicely worded letter explaining that we would bring charges of libel if they didn't shut up and stop their accusations. DBC got released six months later.
  4. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    I’m talking about now, provided the statute of limitations hasn’t run out. I do agree the DirectSong and Kickstarter things suggest that Jeremy is far from an upstanding individual.
  5. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    The problem is that there are women, and men for that matter, that will falsely accuse a celebrity in the hopes of getting a financial settlement out of court. This is why the “victims” don’ t go to police. They don’t want justice. They want revenge and money. I’m not talking about this case in particular. There are several cases of sexual assault plaguing ride share services like Uber and Lyft right now. Drivers are intercepting other driver’s rides, telling the fare that the other driver can’t come, or the fare doesn’t confirm the driver, then the driver takes the fare to a quiet location and assaults them. These victims are going to police and reporting the crime, immediately. The victims are also suing the companies, alleging that proper background checks aren’t being done. The drivers are removed from the program and that protects other people as the police begin their investigation. I will start believing these women when they start following the legal process.
  6. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    I was concerned that you were living alone with this guy. Just be careful. I’ve been watching Vengeance: Killer Neighbours and I’ve seen way too much of the stupidity that occurs when neighbours don’t get along. Mind you, that’s in the US where everybody has a gun. I’ve been assaulted by one of my neighbours three times. Police were called and talked to him. He’s an old crazy guy so we didn’t press charges. He’s too old to be a problem now, if he’s even still alive. His wife died several years ago and she was actually the source of a lot of the trouble.
  7. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    These events also occurred a long time ago. I know the “me too” thing has encouraged a lot of women to speak up, but these women aren’t going to the police, they’re just ranting on their blogs. We don’t even know their true identities other than what they claim they are. Not that we should, but the anonymity of the net feeds trolls. If something really happened, I can only hope these women stop complaining on the net and go to the police. Jeremy also deserves the chance to defend himself. @Sigurd Stormhand, it’s time to remove yourself from that situation. Are there other support groups that you could contact?

  9. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    I was raised with the rule that you never go to a guy's home or room alone unless you want to have sex. You don't put yourself in situations where things could go where you don't want them to.
  10. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    I meant to reply to this earlier. I agree with Sigurd in this case. *shocker* LOL I remember reading an article in the newspaper that accused a swim coach of sexual assault and interference. I was a member of his swim club as a teenager. I had an extremely high heart rate and after a hard work-out, I could hardly breathe. He took my pulse from my wrist and he couldn’t even count my heart rate. He was so concerned that he drove me home. He never made a move on me. I read the article several years later. It seemed a girl was trying to accuse him of inappropriate behaviour several years after the fact or he was still coaching 20 years after I knew him. It wasn’t clear from the article. They were looking for more girls to come forward. I have no idea how the case developed - if charges were ever made. I suspect the case was dropped as I never heard anything about it on TV and the swim club was pretty big. My point is to wait for this to go through the legal system before passing judgement. It only seems to be a couple of women, so they might be simply upset that their personal relationship with Jeremy didn’t result in the advancement in their careers that they were looking for. As Sigurd said, at this point we should wait and see if more women come forward.
  11. The xml files are the menu files. darkrumbleking gave you the path and name of the file. The xml file loads the dds file and loads the image into the map, which is a menu. drk is telling you to use one of the unused icons in the xml file. You’ll have to figure out the code from the xml and MMO. I can’t help you much more than that, sorry.
  12. [WIP/Alpha] The Black Marshes

    Actually Ibsen has dropped in and we're discussing quests. We originally had plans for a huge storyline with a lot of quests and we realize that's not realistic so we're figuring out how to pare it down. No alpha or beta yet.
  13. Signing in and reporting for duties!

    I'm back. Hopefully hubby had his last chemo treatment. He'll have a CT scan next week and if the tumour is small enough, they'll schedule him for surgery. Now to dig through my notes and figure out where I left off...

    Glad to see you got it working.
  15. [WIP] Dark Brotherhood Chronicles: Consequences

    I’ve been away from modding and gaming in general as I deal with health issues in the family. I do hope to return when things get better.
  16. Dark Brotherhood Chronicles: Consequences Introduction Once upon a time, our name was whispered in the dark corners of the deepest caves and feared in the highest towers. Once upon a time, we bore the blood of emperors on our hands. Once upon a time, we were mystery, and secret, and the greatest in the Empire would gather our rituals to be allowed to grovel at our feet. Once upon a time, we scorned Mephala Herself, stole Her treasures, and found a master far beyond what She ever was. But now... Whether you've decided to restore the Dark Brotherhood or bring about its sundering, your work has only just begun. You have made your choices. Now it is time to face the Consequences. Consequences is the second instalment in the Dark Brotherhood Chronicles. It will feature two complete quest lines, along with a series of side quests for each side. Description The Dark Brotherhood Chronicles is a large quest mod that continues and expands the story of the Dark Brotherhood in Oblivion. The project was started in late 2006 or early 2007 - we're not really sure. With some early background and advice from Emil, the Bethesda employee who conceived and developed the Dark Brotherhood, the original team started writing a story that was meant to span three separate chapters, which they didn't name. Amadaun joined the team and after a couple of team changes and rewrites, we settled on the story that was released as Awakening, the first chapter. We had a rough outline for the second and third chapters, but nothing concrete. We wanted to release Awakening before Bethesda released their fifth game, Skyrim, but we failed to meet that deadline, instead releasing Awakening in late November 2011. It was well received and we earned the Nexus File of the Month award for December 2011. However Awakening has one major flaw which has frustrated many a player ever since: it ends in a cliffhanger. One person who complained about Awakening's story was a forum member named Cray. He took the time to join the community site that now hosts the Dark Brotherhood Chronicles and wrote a two-page long critique. I was impressed with what I read, despite its length, so I challenged him to put his words into action and help us with Consequences. He took up the challenge and now he, Amadaun and I have teamed up to flesh out the story for Consequences. We are also planning the story for the third chapter, which we hope to develop for Skyrim. It will be called Transgressions. Cray and Amadaun are both lore nerds and excellent writers, so our aim is to provide a rich story that does justice to both sides. If you don't know what I mean by "sides", then you will need to play through Awakening. Consequences will bring both sides together in one dramatic ending. This time the story will end... until Skyrim 200 years later. Progress The plot is settled, the NPCs are almost wholly written up, it's just time to write quests, think of rewards and get to work on the mechanical side. We are still tossing around ideas for side quests as well. Plot: 95% Quest Writing: 0% NPC Conceptualization: 90% NPC Implementation: 10% Landscaping: 0% Modelling: 0% Dungeons - Level Design: 0% Dungeons - Cluttering: 30% Buildings - Level Design: 0% Buildings - Cluttering: 0% Quest Coding: 0% Testing: 0% We may not need any new landscaping, dungeons or buildings. We have plans to repurpose some buildings from Awakening. Dungeon cluttering includes the clean-up of existing locations and quite a bit of that has been done already. We'll have a better idea of what we need once we start writing the quests. The Dark Brotherhood Chronicles is hosted here on The Assimilation Lab.

  17. Games on Sale

    Not really a sale, but Bethesda is giving away freebies in some of their games. I got some nice goodies in Fallout Shelter and Elder Scrolls: Blades. It’s to celebrate the Gamecom event.

    I’d say you know what you’re in for with that one.
  19. Star Trek - Discussion

    Yeah but for an RPG, story is important! How are you supposed to RP?
  20. Star Trek - Discussion

    Thread cleaned up. Now back to the topic at hand: I finally took a look and it's too bad the story isn't better. I was bemused to note that even people who liked the game did so because of its silliness. They also thought the story was terrible.
  21. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    Oblivion scripts run on a continuous cycle so each script has to finish before the next one in the queue can continue.
  22. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    I suggest removing it as Oblivion XP and other mods test for it already. Testing for OBSE can be tricky and you need to be careful how you do it.
  23. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    What’s OBSE Test Plugin? Get rid of P1DKeyChain - it’s buggy and you don’t need it with Darnified or DarkUId DarN. Don’t forget to rebuild your Bashed Patch each time you make a change to your load order. You might find the errors go away once you remove the key chain mod.
  24. Signing in and reporting for duties!

    Sorry guys, RL sucks right now. Jimi is getting better, although the last chemo treatment has really hammered his ass. He just got out of hospital. Thanks for the poke and please poke me again if I don’t get back to this next week.
  25. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    Yeah as soon as a script hangs, it stops all other scripts from running. Ob XP’s scripts haven’t changed in years so they aren’t the cause of the errors. I’ve investigated these before and I think it was Arthmoor that explained the issue.
