      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. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Ok, I reinstalled this. At first it started over, taking me through the tutorial again. Then it came to the part where it gave me the option to sign on to Bethesda.net. This is no longer mandatory, but I opted to do so. At that point, I was given the option of continuing my old game or continuing with the new game. I opted for the new game as my old game is unplayable. This time I’m being more careful with my character development. It is very hard to cast spells in this game because all combat is up close and if the enemy hits you while you are preparing to cast the spell, it will backfire. This is one of the things I really don’t like about this game. I prefer to cast spells from a distance and only close in with the enemy once I’ve already softened them up with my spells.
  2. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    I’ve had enough and deleted Blades. You can’t actually delete an app on Apple. Some apps start over when you install them again, others pick up from where you left off. From what I’ve read, Blades restarts from where you left off. I spent real money to buy some gems to buy an Imperial shipment, so I actually hope it restores my purchase. If not, I won’t spend any more real money on this. Anyway I have no gold and no healing potions, so I just die on every job or quest I attempt. I’m done.
  3. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Modem issues as explained in my status update.
  4. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    I’ve been offline for the past two days. Before going offline, I think I started to find a strategy that might keep me playing Blades for a while longer. It is getting tedious though so Beth will definitely need to add more content to keep people playing. I think the Absorb spell and Adrenaline Dodge ability are the keys to keeping my guy alive. I still need a ton of healing potions though. Fallout Shelter is good for a tablet but I can’t imagine playing it on a phone. I have a nice big iPad and even with that, I have trouble finding the Mysterious Stranger when he makes an appearance. Soon my vault will be too big for me to find him at all. I’ll start a separate thread about it.
  5. I’m back! Again. The new modem was a challenge to configure so we’ve been offline for the past couple of days.

      Oh, okay.  Well, good that it's working.  Internet is damn near essential nowadays.  Almost like a toilet.

    2. AndalayBay


      It was torture being offline! :lmao:

  6. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    I’ve had enough. My character dies with every job now, despite following the various suggestions regarding weapons and enchantments. I find that I just can’t get my character to react fast enough. I’ve always played a Breton in TES games. That meant that it would be a hard grind during parts of the game, but I could muddle through until my character got strong enough. That’s not possible with Blades because you can’t play as a mage. You can’t cast spells from a distance before you close with the enemy. As a result you’re trying to push the enemy away long enough to cast your spells. Ultimately you fail, the spell backfires, which damages your character and you die from the barrage of blows you’re taking from the enemy. I’m continually meeting trolls and wispmothers and they kill me in two hits. Not fun. On top of all that, I can’t even buy or make enough healing potions to muddle through. Tonight I had to attempt jobs with no healing potions at all in the hope that I encountered enemies I could survive. Nope. Wispmothers and trolls. Whack whack dead. Fuck this. Bethesda is making loads from this game right now. Wait until the fervor dies down and the game gets more reasonable. I’d say two years at least. I’ve started playing Fallout Shelter again and it’s much more reasonable than it was originally. I’ll post a separate thread about that.

    *groans* My mother loved that show, but I don’t remember it, thankfully.
  8. The Sabaton Thread

    That’s it? I was hoping he would slip and nail his nuts on one of the speakers.
  9. Help needed to customize Firefox

    The addon bug has been fixed with the new versions just released.
  10. Help needed to customize Firefox

    I'm on the ESR* version an that has been updated too. The ESR version is less annoying than regular Firefox. *ESR = Extended Support Release. It doesn't get updated as often.
  11. Help needed to customize Firefox

    Yep, I’ve got Lynx installed on the server.
  12. Help needed to customize Firefox

    I tried Pale Moon but removed it. I don’t think it was able to support some of the add-ons that I use.
  13. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    I don’t know anything about MOO. I’ve never used it. With regards to enemies, have a look at the UESP. I linked it earlier in this thread when you were asking about levelling.
  14. Help needed to customize Firefox

    Personal experience here! Firefox can also blow up if your PC has a hissy fit and forgets the current date. I’ve had some problems with my PC forgetting the bios settings, including the current date, so all my plugins failed. It really pissed me off because FF actually removed some of them and I can’t get them back. Anyway Arthmooor has nailed the issue in this case, but just as a head’s up, if your bios fails for some reason, make sure you set the date correctly or FF will have a major hissy fit and might delete some shit you don’t want removed. I really hate current browsers.
  15. [WIPz] Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    I asked Jac about this and he said that it looks like this has been fixed already. He posted the fix so I’ll verify that it’s in the plugin.
  16. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    Also, it turns out there's a bug in the wizard that won't set the level cap properly. I'll fix the wizard, but I recommend setting the values in that section manually if you haven't done so already.
  17. [WIPz] Unofficial Morrowind Patch

    That sounds vaguely familiar. I don't have it specifically listed in our change log though, so I'll ask Jac if it got fixed. Thanks for the head's up and welcome to TAL!
  18. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    Not that wide a range. That would be Stunted Scamps and Clannfear Runts running around with Daedroth. I think he's running MOO or one of those other mods that delevel Oblivion so you have a chance of encountering anything.
  19. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Bethesda released another big update to the game and they might actually be listening to complaints! First, you don’t need an account on Bethesda.net to play anymore. The game is now available on the iTunes store and I’m guessing it would also be available on the Android equivalent. Second, and this is a big one for me, you can now get more crafting materials from daily and weekly jobs. I’m finding the jobs very difficult because I’m encountering enemies that I just can’t beat, so I need to craft potions and enchant my weapons, but I can’t because I don’t have the materials. Another nice feature is that you now get a pop-up taking you to your daily reward from the store. I know about the daily reward, but I often forget to check. Today I got a gold chest. When you get chests in the daily reward, they open immediately. I did spend a bit of money on the game to buy enough gems to get the Imperial Shipment special. That gave me a bunch of building materials for the town so I was able to add several improvements to my town.
  20. OFFLINE!!! I’ll be offline for a few days. My modem died and I need to get a new one from my ISP.

    1. AndalayBay


      We can’t afford it.

    2. Malonn


      Understood.  You spent all your money on your home renovations that took 10 years?  :)

    3. AndalayBay


      Yep. And more. :(

  21. If you’ve noticed some issues when visiting lately, that was me getting IPv6 working on the server.  I wound up getting help from Linode. All fixed now! If you are using IPv6 you should now get a full IPv6 response.

    1. Schtearn


      Sounds as if they had a couple of "Teksavvy" work experience ops in for the day.

    2. AndalayBay


      I got a test modem from them today, so I’m back online for now. I’m going to see if I can “repair” my old modem before buying a new one. The test modem is an upgrade, but I don’t really need the extra features.

      We’ve enabled IPv6 on the test modem, but I have no idea if I’m visiting with IPv6. I probably have to switch to my static IPv6 account.

  22. [RELz] Oblivion XP

    Oblivion XP's ini is meant to be edited by the player. The wizard is a very recent addition. Here's a thread on how to customize your levelling rate based on the mods you have loaded. I suggest taking a look at Bash's readme. I'm not familiar with that setting. It sounds like you have a mod that's messing with NPC and creature levelling.
  23. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Back to Blades. I think this silly game has me hooked somehow. The dungeons are dull, but the enemies and combat aren’t bad. Hopefully they’ll add more variety as the game develops. I might even buy some gems!
  24. [RELz] Dark Brotherhood Chronicles: Awakening

    I think Vorians took care of that. I haven't changed anything like that, but I think Vorians did make a bunch of changes to BC that required an update to the patch. Actually I will have to talk to Vorians about Skingrad. The changes I made there might affect BC and/or UL. Good point!
  25. Dark Brotherhood Chronicles: Awakening Version 1.2.6 Download Links: The Assimilation Lab TES Nexus 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... Now, we are scattered, the Sanctuaries sealed. Now, the blood you have on your hands is that of your own family. Now, our secrets are broken, for we never saw the traitor in our midst. Now, the body of your master and mentor hangs in Applewatch, and the Night Mother herself scorns us for our failure. Where is the power of Sithis now? In the aftermath of the traitor's destruction, the Listener of the Dark Brotherhood now faces new challenges. Shadowy threats from without and little trust from within. The Sanctuaries have been locked, the Dark Family hidden. But still, someone has found them. Someone seeks to wipe the weakened assassins from the face of Tamriel. The greatest secrets of the Black Hand must be unearthed if the Listener is to save the Dark Brotherhood from extinction. Or perhaps he will aid the Brotherhood's greatest enemy. The Dark Brotherhood Chronicles is a large-scale quest mod. It boasts many new NPCs, locations, and both a large main questline and sidequests, delving deep into the shadowed history of the Dark Brotherhood. Features: Choice. You have the power to decide not only how to perform within quests, but whether or not to accept them in the first place. If you turn down some quests, they are no longer available. Save your game before talking to an NPC. Interaction. In some quests, the clothes you wear can affect an NPC's reaction. You can also taunt your target before the kill... Decision. Some of our quests are disturbing. These aren't your morally ambiguous, or even justified, assassination missions. In tDBC, you are a heartless assassin, and will be called upon to perform reprehensible and grotesque acts. However, there are alternatives to these reprehensible acts: you can choose the path your character takes rather than being shoehorned into a purely villainous role. Several new exterior locations and dungeons, including several new sanctuaries. A wide variety of NPCs, with their own distinct character traits. Custom rumours and greetings. Lots of books and notes that enhance the lore and expand on the recent events in the Brotherhood. Quest Notes: The quests that comprise the main quest are neutral until the end. Then you will be forced to make a choice that will earn you fame or infamy. Some of the side quests will earn infamy points. However, they are optional, so you can turn them down if you don't wish to do them. If you wish to complete all the side quests, do so before starting the final quest. You will be asked to retrieve a dagger. Finish all the side quests before handing the dagger over. Awakening will end once the final quest is finished and the side quests will no longer be available. tDBC is aimed at characters level 15 and over. Companions and enemies are scaled, but quests are meant to be hard so higher level characters are recommended. Requirements OBSE version 20 or newer MenuQue version 9a or newer Patches Open Cities Better Cities Unique Landscapes Roads of Cyrodiil Patch ImpeREAL City Unique Districts If you are using the Skingrad Outskirts module for Unique Landscapes, grab the 1.02 or newer update as that resolves some conflicts with the area outside Skingrad. Translations French translation by Sita Compatibility Awakening is incompatible with: Anvil Bay Expansion (unconfirmed - assumed due to pre-patch conflicts with BC) Duke Patricks - Fresh Kills Now Alert The NPCs (this one breaks the final quest in Awakening) A Brotherhood Renewed (AI package conflicts - both mods are too similar to be run at the same time) The Return of the Dark Brotherhood. Same reason as A Brotherhood Renewed. Minor cosmetic issues with: Reclaiming Sancre Tor (road passes under one of our locations - can go around) Gallery Screenshots and concept drawings for the project: tDBC Gallery Special thanks to: Arthmoor for being at our beck and call to answer at least 10,000 questions for the last year and for stepping up and giving us a new home when we needed it most. Our beta testers for playing through the entire mod at least 47 times. They are never going to want to see Awakening ever again. And a special call-out to omeletted for her thoroughness, being a royal nitpicker, breaking it in ways we never thought it could be broken, and methodically killing every single one of our NPCs at least twice.
