      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!

  2. 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?

    Merry Christmas, Leo.
  4. Tweak Guides has Moved On

    For me, it was very well laid out and explained, and perhaps one or two details not entirely accurate for the nitpickers, at the time of writing those details were either generally not known, or privy to insiders. Any Google hits now redirect to the creator: https://twitter.com/GhaziKoroush The whole caboodle is available as a 1Gb package: https://mega.nz/#!OgU0VaDQ!8p3ud8YIpIng8xGwIpd8ghZ5UKhqmaxhRjczw3wmaUE Must have been the size of the beast that makes individual pages unavailable for archiving at Archive.org. All that could be located there was the same 1Gb file plus various indexes: https://archive.org/details/tweakguides.com_20191028 Farewell, tweakguides.com.
  5. Tweak Guides has Moved On

    He actually included a sort of disclaimer for many of them- to the effect "use them at you discretion- I have tried them and they have had a minimal/zero impact on my game." These kinds of statements were misinterpreted or ignored by a significant portion of Oblivion fans, a subset of to whom declared by many to be in pursuit of the greatest prize of all: The Ultimate Oblivion Placebo!
  6. Kitties!!

    Far too lazy to do anything like that. Once tried to ask a question on it, and it got knocked back because it wasn't of the type "How high is the sky?" or "why isn't the Earth flat?" Quora: 1. Schtearn: 0.

    As a result of signing up with Quora, the weekly digest they send to me comprises of no other subject than cats! Here's one: https://www.quora.com/Do-cats-know-that-they-live-with-you-in-your-place-and-that-they-eat-and-have-a-clean-cat-box-at-your-good-graces

    Many happy returns!

    The old Y-SE8 keyboard of which the hibernation key issue was posted at a now defunct Logitech forum.There was a much better version of the image form Ebay at this post. Perhaps the item has moved on? Apart from actually getting the camera out, the low res posted image should satisfy the curiosity of most.

  11. PrgLnch: Yet Another Game Launcher

    We're heading towards the integration of dedicated TES ini slots. Extra ones for Fallout is also on the cards. One of the big advantages of using a LnchPad slot for a TES setup in PrgLnch 2.2 is the introduction of Power Plan options which cater for various activities associated with modding the games. Try it out: LnchPadInit.zip
  12. PrgLnch: Yet Another Game Launcher

    PrgLnch What does it do? Features: Selectable Resolution for Prg Batch Processing of Prgs Prg Info Stored in ini File Support for Prg on Multiple Displays Http Download to Update Prg Optional LAA Patch which can be Applied to Prg An Additional Serving of Delectable Oddities Available to Prg of Limited Perceivable Use Accompanied by a bunch of explanatory ramblings wrapped up in a contextual help file. Version 2.2 Update: Notes for Bethesda Game Modders: Most players of Bethesda games would be happy with the popular mod launchers for executables- PrgLnch offers more flexibility for the more advanced modder: Dedicated LnchPad Slots for each game Batch Presets for specific tasks Power Plans in Batch Runs Multi Monitor Support Much more This is an early Beta, so please post anything that doesn't seem right to you! The mods have to be already installed on the rig before PrgLnch can use them. Extra LnchPad Slots can be setup to run for executable mods with command line options e.g. XEdit or Wrye Bash. As opposed to running game mods, it's not recommended to launch the games themselves or via script extender launchers in a Batch Preset along with other Prgs. A Batch Preset with just the game by itself, or its extender launcher is preferred, with astute regard to the launch settings in the PrgLnch Options. The 12 mods for each game were chosen mainly on popularity and usability. As the choice was subjective, suggestions to the inclusion of alternative LnchPad Slots are very welcome. The decision to choose either Vortex or MO2: Chose MO2 because it was subjectively assumed it was more likely to benefit from PrgLnch than Vortex. The original intention was to avoid inclusion of them altogether (something like: A launcher doth not pant for the binary form of another ) Requirements: Windows- (mostly) Status: Release. Download!

    Not at all. Bathing this body is labour enough!
  14. Games on Sale

    An amazing deal: The CD version of Morrowind going for a paltry $60 AU. Plus a very low postage fee of $10. CDs must be more of a collector's item these days, so dive in for that unforgettable taste of nostalgia!

    It's the best explanation of time out there!
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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?
  19. 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.
