      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. As opposed to streaming, throw some pebbles in the pond and make a ripple? :P

     Got it set up for Ob but forget it was for specifically. It was a 360 sweepshot in different locations- Might have been something to do with LODs or Z-fighting in different weather conditions/lighting or FPS or ShadeMe- don't you hate it when you forget stuff because you don't log it? Damn, what was it? :angry:

  2. Actually checking the UI files was enough- 

    hud_main_menu.xml <= This, I wasn't aware of!

    and Dark UI also requires this: hud_info_menu.xml

    Hmmm, don't know whether a BAIN wizard should be done for Dark UI- it's a very well presented mod with compatibilities for BTmod & older Darn. Looking at the comments in the last few years it seems to be superseded by the others- perhaps it's best left alone after all.

  3. Recreating the master each game load seems like a reasonable approach.

    Found the defs in Commandtable:

    #define COMMAND_ARGS	ParamInfo * paramInfo, void * arg1, TESObjectREFR * thisObj, UInt32 arg3, Script * scriptObj, ScriptEventList * eventList, double * result, UInt32 * opcodeOffsetPtr
    #define PASS_COMMAND_ARGS paramInfo, arg1, thisObj, arg3, scriptObj, eventList, result, opcodeOffsetPtr

    The problem is when doing this in your own code, all the objects have to be defined there as well for anything to work. ParamInfo TESObjectREFR, and all the rest. 

  4. Yeah sorry, Anda's idea is better- but I'm actually attempting to locate where COMMAND_ARGS is defined- i.e. what's the structure of it.

    Is arg(0) and arg(1) separated with a comma or space- or something else?

    ExpressionEvaluator eval(PASS_COMMAND_ARGS);

    And what's PASS_COMMAND_ARGS? Looking at it in context of the function above it's just a blank variable.

    Or is PASS_COMMAND_ARGS some kind of macro?

  5. Quote
    static bool Cmd_ar_Erase_Execute(COMMAND_ARGS)
    	// returns num elems erased or -1 on error
    	UInt32 numErased = -1;
    	ExpressionEvaluator eval(PASS_COMMAND_ARGS);

    Weird that it's not evaling COMMAND_ARGS. You might want to replace the 2nd reference with COMMAND_ARGS.

    That function just returns a Boolean- but it looks like it wants COMMAND_ARGS in a proper format. How are you passing the arguments exactly?

  6. Sounds good, when the same deal is available for less. :)

    From what I've seen, Linode is very good, so I guess you won't be changing providers there.

    How much do you plan to save on, and what's the trade-off in downsizing? At the user end, do we lose any of the the functionality in forum S/W or will things get a little slow on the response? Quite happy if we are only talking milliseconds increase in response times. :P


  7. Wearing shorts in summer over many years and one ends up with sting resistant legs! But garden gloves are fine. He washes them before drying here, I don't usually- but it depends on how you find them- just shaking of dust is enough. He warns they have little hairs that may irritate the urinary tract- (it's amazing how they get through the digestive system) but no problems experienced personally.

    He recommends harvesting them in spring- correct- but mine don't really get going until mid-summer- usually the best time here. The harvest in the above picture was taken mid-autumn- as lately not going staggering down there too often these days. :P

  8. Black screen came again, but now, after around 7 or 8 successful resumes. The key combination was tried, but might have omitted a <return> before the arrow down. As a matter of interest, the mouse cursor changed when hovering over the text items in the boot menu (I assume- no changes in the desktop).

    Hibernated again for the black screen, and this time the keystroke combination worked! The custom mouse cursor reverting to system default before, yay, the soft reset. :celebration:
