      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. How to get past games to run

    Wonder if the GOG version of the (free) Arena & Daggerfall contains the Smooth Graphics as described in the advanced configs: https://wiwiki.wiwiland.net/?title=Arena_:_ArenaSetup_EN https://wiwiki.wiwiland.net/index.php?title=Daggerfall_:_DaggerfallSetup_EN
  2. Speed Trees

    The Autocad notes also provide a background to it for sure. The most basic test would be to use his code to transfer a vanilla spt to text, then back to spt, and then test it in game. Setting up tests for SpeedTree is another thing. If it does that, we can certainly move onto other considerations.
  3. Speed Trees

    Looking at this library, the usage goes: Usage: 1. sptparser tree.spt > newtree.txt 2. emacs newtree.txt (or any other text editor) 3. sptcompiler newtree.txt > newtree.spt There's not a real lot of info on how to build or handle any compiled form. Should I raise an issue just to ask?
  4. Tools and Utilities

    ShadeMe is still looking after the CSE- very busy last year, but now looking like one or two commits per annum. From memory, there were lots of issues from various users on the old Bethsoft forums but only two at Github now, and both of those by ShadeMe. Bunch o' Edits: There's a bug section at Nexus Mods which explains it. To complement this great list there's also Buddah. Has anyone tried Timeslip's Mod Conflict Detector? Performed a run on this setup and got a truckload of errors! (2mb file) Wow. (As with the original, this is also found in TESModManager, a kind of OBMM reloaded still being developed). The DDS Plugin for Gimp has its only home at Google. Is it possible to mirror it here (think the GNU license allows it) in case Google pulls its code repo. Unlikely- but we all know what happened to Google+ don't we? In NifTools there's a thing called Mopper. There's an article with broken image links which explains the acronym: The link for Tes4Files has gone. (Discussed above.) The ModsReloaded file has been verified as working. Does DDSOpt actually replace the relevant functions of TES4Files?
  5. He'll want a BSA extractor for that, BSA Commander is what i use. Note on search: In Windows 10 indexing for search is turned on for all files by default. In my case only a few folders are indexed, but in earlier editions of Windows, non-indexed files may not be picked up in searches at all.

    What a wabbajock. My idea of space travel:
  7. Jeremy Soule Rape Accusations

    The court of public opinion is at best a fickle thing. If the author of this post were ever bestowed such a role of libelant (so help me Talos) I would have abnegated all claims on dear Jeremy if he had ever made stuff like this. As it is, all such claims are hurtful and cruel, and it should be in the statutes that such claims should never be publicised until they have been dealt with in court.
  8. Search for volunteer

    Combining mods can be done with TesEdit, never done it myself so no experience there. There's good info on it here, also this thread: Changing stats is straightforward, Hana has a wealth of texture guides over at AFK mods. We can certainly help with specific questions.
  9. Random Stuffz

    It was a bit mystifying in Man and Amoeba when untangling the precise reason for Newton Jennings to revise his theory to accommodate for a more sentient life form on Mars. Martin suggests it was all tied in to the Pauli Exclusion Principle. In the grand order and scale of things, we are little more than fermions- and it's possible many of their characteristics commute through the chain of life, as far as that goes, in the knowledge the writers of the show blithely grabbed any old random scientific theory just to keep us on our toes. It's mentioned at he following point: There's also this interesting article with the following quote:
  10. "Bad" Movie Suggestions

    Who watches free to air these days? Epic Movie mentioned back here seriously wanted a script rehash and remolding of ideas. Casting wasn't so much of a problem as the roles were not well typed nor delineated. Still, the actual production was passable and there were a couple of laughs on tap. The Rotten Tomatoes 2% was awarded by folks who probably expected something better. I always try to keep an open mind.

    A good writer transcends gender- if one is able to infer gender readily from the content alone, switch to another channel.
