      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. 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.


  2. Thread cleaned up. Now back to the topic at hand:

    If you are a Star Trek fan like myself then perhaps the Star Trek Timelines game is for you and right now it's free to play it on Steam.

    Unfortutely, the DLC are not free and with a GUI that are not user friendly I doubt anyone wants to buy the DLC at least I won't buy the DLC.

    I try it for a while maybe 10-15 minutes before I quit the game.

    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.


  3. 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.


  4. 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.

    Yeah but we always see men trying to portray women. Having said that, I think they did a good job with Kate Mulgrew doing Janeway. But I don’t get Michael at all. She drives me nuts.


  6. It’s not Oblivion XP. It’s another mod higher (loading before Ob XP) that’s got an OBSE scripting problem. That causes OBSE to stop processing and you get errors in some random mod later in your load order. Sort your load order with BOSS and create a Bashed Patch. If that doesn’t work, then you need to start removing mods until you find the culprit.


  7. Yeah I’d try installing them again. You might have to customize Wrye Bash. I believe that the default is to have the mods folder outside your Oblivion installation so that you can use the same set of mods with several game instances. I’d check the WB readme. Personally I have a Bash ini file to change the WB mods folder to be in each Oblivion game instance. If Wrye Bash seems in order, then have a look at how to install mods with BAIN. You might find TESCOSI helpful, although some of the instructions are probably out of date. Tomlong’s general mod installation instructions still apply and her section on installation order for mods is extremely helpful and still applies. She has a lot of information on installing mods with BAIN.


  8. When you want to upload a new version, just edit the previous version. The forum software will show the new version and update the release thread for you. Please don't delete files as that may cause errors if people have links to your file.


  9. So you've got Oblivion\Data\ini as directories and all the ini files are in that directory? Where do you have Oblivion installed? If it's under Program Files, then Windows might be interfering. Don't install Oblivion to Program Files - it needs to be able to write to the installation directory and Windows won't allow it. I recommend something like D:\Games or C:\Games. If it's not that, then it could be a permissions issue, but that would be a first that I've heard of.


  10. That could be. The one thing in particular that I don’t like with Discovery is the more advanced ship design and technology than what they would have had at that time. I was wondering how they were going to explain the disappearance of the spore drive, because there was no way they would hang on to ST fans if they continued to have that as an option.

    Voyager is my favourite ST series, from season 4 onwards. The first three seasons were horrible!


  11. Nope, it wants data\ini too. If you’re installing with Wrye Bash, it should be creating the directories and putting the files there. Are you running the installation wizards? You should be running the wizards from the Installers tab in Wrye Bash.


  12. I kid you not, that’s exactly what it’s like for my husband and I, but our roles are reversed. He’s on blood thinners, so he’s always cold. He’ll be dressed in flannels while I’ve got shorts on. You can always tell the multi-generation Canadians: shorts and t-shirts while recent immigrants from hot climates have parkas on. It makes for hilarious pictures in the spring and fall. :rofl:


  13. Warning: Watching these videos will seriously bend your brain, especially if you are American. Consider yourself warned.

    The Beaverton is a Canadian comedy show that picks on “news”. It’s no holds barred and will offend a lot of people, as intended. For example, they had a skit on tonight’s show with a native Indian that said that they would only be happy once we gave up half the Canadian territory. Yes, shocker! We are having a battle with our indigeous people. They also like to pick on Trump (who doesn’t?). This is super Canadian, but you might find some common ground. You’ve been warned though! :P


  14. So you’re bitching because the new crew has a lot more female representation? As you point out, TOS focused on three characters: Kirk, Spock and McCoy. Only Kirk and Spock were bridge crew. All were male. What about the rest of the bridge crew? Did we ever get a focus on Uhura? No, of course not! Her biggest contribution was a kiss with Kirk. Ironically we got a lot more background on Uhura from the series reboot. I loved that scene, btw. ;)

    The whole point of Discovery is Michael, so if that pisses you off, watch something else. The producers proudly pronounced she was the point of the show. I didn’t see anything else in the trailers for the show. One point I do agree with you and Vorians on is how she magically became the adopted child of Sarek. I really think they could have picked a different Vulcan when the producers decided that was a requirement. As far as I’m concerned, she has to die to have any chance of matching Star Trek cannon.


  15. I haven’t seen Dracula Untold, but most Dracula movies are talking about Vlad the Impaler, the son of Vald Dracul and not Dracul himself. This would be the first I’ve heard of to confuse the two.


  16. It didn’t seem to be centered around the captain or bridge crew. In fact a lot of them turned out to be rather temporary, didn’t they? Certainly the captain wasn’t who he seemed. Different strokes I guess. Personally I didn’t care. :P

    If you haven't even watched a single episode, you really cannot make such an observation. You're just repeating things you saw in documentaries or what you understood from documentaries, which were based on the opinions of the creators of those documentaries, and so are not your own opinions.

     

    Discovery takes place between the pilot episode for TOS and the 2nd episode of TOS. In TOS episode 1, Pike was the captain, and Discovery is set after Pike visited the planet seen in the pilot, as Pike is reunited with characters from that TOS pilot episode (stock footage was used from the TOS episode for both a bit of flash-back, and rather tidily, to form the Previously on Star Trek for an episode starter).

     

    I agree with Sigurd that they completely failed to properly introduce the bridge crew, only making them into people when an episode demanded it. but I'm quite content that the show is focused on Michael, even if she is the adopted sister of Spock who was never mentioned by Spock in any previous episode or movie containing Spock (but again, I see Discovery as a reboot in a different timeline to the STs we've seen before).

    Well if you really want to get nik-picky, The Cage was filmed but never aired as the pilot. It was rejected by the network in favour of Where No Man has Gone Before. The Cage was later completed and broadcast as The Menagerie. :P You nailed the timing of Discovery though. I was trying to place it.

    I own all the series except DS9, which I couldn’t stand, and all the movies, including the new ones. I loved Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan. :D

    I actually like the fact that they didn’t focus on the bridge crew. The focused on a crew member when it was their time for the spotlight. For example a good portion of the season focused on the guy that operated the spore drive. It’s nice that it’s not captain wonder coming to the rescue yet again.


  18. Leo, Discovery takes place before the original Star Trek with Jim Kirk as captain! No wonder you’re confused. :P It’s from the time when Pike was captain of the Enterprise, which precedes the original series. They show you what happens to Pike in the Menagerie in the original series. The season finale for Discovery showed the lead-up to the Menagerie and Pike had a glimpse of his future when he did the Klingon challenge to get the time stones.

    I’ve always found that the Star Trek series suck for the first three seasons, so Discovery is doing pretty good. Oh right, they’re rebooting Picard. Not sure about that yet.
