      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. Choices the Masquerade: Blood Bound

    I seriously need to catch up with this thread....
  2. What are you listening to right now?

    You do love the old stuff!
  3. [Relz, WIP] Elsweyr Pelletine

    That’s a mislabel on Nexus’ part. That’s probably what’s confusing Leo.
  4. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    Bethesda just released a new blog update in which they outline their future plans for the game. Behind the E3 Update
  5. 4Gb Patch

    As Malonn said, just run the program (4GB patch program) and pick Oblivion.exe as the program to apply it to.

    If I wanted you to leave, I would have said so. Deleting the original file and then uploading it again where a new release thread would be created made no sense and broke a lot of links. We need the threads so I have the option to migrate to other forum packages that don’t have download areas. They handle file uploads as attachments to forum threads.
  7. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    I imagine Beth will release Blades on other platforms eventually, if they haven’t already. I thought I saw something about PS4, but I might be mistaken.
  8. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    My cell phone is a cell phone and that’s it! No data, no text messages (although it is capable). I use my iPad for Blades. I can’t imagine playing on a phone, although the new ones are pretty big. My cell phone’s screen is 2” x 2.75”.
  9. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    If you were thinking of checking this out, this might be the weekend to do it. Bethesda released another update and are having a weekend sale. You can get chests in the store for 25% fewer gems. I have enough gems to buy an Elder chest without having to use any real money. Gems seem to be dropping a lot more in the recent updates. Beth has also guaranteed that the chests will have a lot more smithing and construction materials and armour or weapons. I’ve gotten some much needed upgrades. In the previous update, Beth also introduced secret rooms in the job dungeons, which I think are randomly generated. The secret rooms always have a chest and other treasure.
  10. Sexism in Comics

    Ah, yes, SuperMAN versus SuperGIRL. It's so fucking sexist, it's disgusting. Just think of the Australian Open a few years ago when the on-court presenter asked Eugenie Bouchard to twirl her skirt. Yeah comics are like that, but SG is particularly annoying to me.

    You should have fixed the original upload rather than creating a new one. I can’t do a redirect as the entries are created by the forum software. If you aren’t happy with the service here, then upload your files somewhere else. I’ve really had enough of this crap. None of you are helping me with the server fees and I really can’t afford to keep paying them.
  12. Oblivion Screenshot Thread

    One of those times I'm glad Oblivion doesn't have the capability to animate something: Just a quiet night scene:
  13. [RELz] Elsweyr Anequina

    Well I need to restore the original Elsweyr Anequina because my log files are getting filled with 403 errors.
  14. [RELz] Elsweyr Anequina

    Once you release your mod, that forum will be removed. If you upload your mod here, you would do so in the released mods section where the public can download it and a thread will be created in this forum. We need these release threads in order to facilitate the move to other forum software. Many packages do not have a file download area. Files are stored as attachments to forum threads instead.
  15. [RELz] Elsweyr Anequina

    What bloody difference does that make? Now as you’ve said, all you’ve done is broken a ton of links. Please restore the original file or move your files elsewhere. Nobody has ever posted in this thread until Leo bumped it. You could have ignored that and this thread would still be empty.
  16. Elder Scrolls: Blades Early Access

    More updates. Bethesda has continued to release updates for this that tweak the balance and costs. The updates are looking good so far. They’ve added another feature to the Arena that allows you to have one-on-one battles with a miscellaneous NPC. These are quite easy so far and a good way to collect some gold. Bethesda says that the PvP battles are “coming soon”. Personally I’m not interested in that, but it sounds like it will appeal to many players. I’ve found that the updates award a lot more gems, which I’m really happy with. I was also given the Watcher’s Helm and Sword in my new game, which I really wasn’t expecting. I got them much later and really didn’t need them anymore, so I sold them. I’ve also gotten a few other gifts for my early play that have really helped. The dungeon crawls are still quite repetitive, but Beth has added more wilderness jobs to help break the monotony. I still wish I could fire a spell from a distance, but I’m starting to figure out the timing in combat, so I guess I can say I’m liking this more and will continue to play.
  17. My second play through of this game is going MUCH better. I don’t know how far I’ll get, but I have noticed a few things that I’d like to pass on as tips. There are some game guides starting to spring up, but I haven’t found these tips listed anywhere yet. Houses One of your main tasks is to rebuild your town. There are three types of dwelling or houses you can build. All three are basically identical so it’s just a matter of style. However, I have noticed that each lot has stairs in place already. When choosing which kind of dwelling to build, try to pick the style that will match the stairs. Weapons and Enchantments As I’ve said in the other thread, all combat is close range and it’s very hard to cast spells. Spells take a while to cast and more often than not, they are interrupted before being cast. As a result your best method for delivering magic damage is by weapon enchantment. Furthermore, the game has what it calls aversion poisons that will only increase damage from a particular kind of elemental damage, as the game calls damage from magic. There are no direct poisons for fire, shock, frost or poison. Instead you either find or enchant a weapon with fire, for example, and apply an aversion to fire poison to increase the damage. This is very effective. Also these aversion poisons are good for several hits, not just one hit like poisons in Oblivion. Unfortunately you can’t apply multiple enchantments to a weapon. You will get bonus enchantments randomly applied by the game, but you won’t get a combination of more than one kind of elemental damage. Enemies are only vulnerable to a specific kind of elemental damage and in some cases, only one kind of physical damage, so you’ll need to carry around several different kinds of weapons each enchanted with a different kind of elemental damage. There are charts that people have published showing the weapons you’ll need along with the enchantments. I might create my own version of the chart and will post it here if I do.
  18. Dark Creations is Shutting Down?

    Have you tried contacting Xae for the backup? Apparently he has a full backup of DC before taking it down. I can work with a database backup to restore the thread here, or give you the SQL queries for you to do it for AFK.
  19. Dark Creations is Shutting Down?

    I don’t think we have anything worth keeping.
  20. [RELz] Elsweyr Anequina

    The thread simply lets people know the mod has been uploaded here. It provides an opportunity for the community to provide support. It does not force you to provide support. I will not lock this thread. Please don’t change the title of the thread. The threads are generated automatically.
  21. Like almost everything else you don’t like about the game, there is a mod to change that. I use Supreme Magicka, which allows me to customize the number. Having said that, I rarely use potions and use spells instead, which is once again more feasible with SM.
  22. Sexism in Comics

    Why doesn’t that surprise me?
  23. [RELz] Elsweyr's City of Rimmen

    GOG has Oblivion on sale right now for 50% off. I have seen it cheaper than that nearer to Christmas, but it might still be a good deal if you want to grab it.
  24. Games on Sale

    GOG is having their summer sale and they just announced that Bethesda has joined in. I noticed that Oblivion is 50% off.
  25. Dark Creations is Shutting Down?

    I set up DC in 2011. I was an idiot and trusted someone I shouldn’t have. I was removed as an admin in 2013 so then I founded TAL as a replacement.
