EDIT: Looks like it's essentially a demo. It's a limited, non-fully-featured version of the game.  :(

I believe its just the 'battle royale' component...

not sure how that works in a 2D shooter, but perhaps thats part of the fun...

I did that and then put the box over the computer. Now the machine is still very noisy and I can't reach the switch to turn it off.

or cut the corrugated cardboard out of the side of a box...

There are a few out there that do this.  A lot depends on the methodology even with these, as I've noticed that even doing it programmatically using the Windows API, it stops working after a while.  I've narrowed down this particular issue in several cases to be that the file isn't flushed, but kept locked, so that the operation isn't evident on the drive.  Is it possible that the data hasn't been flushed to the file?

yep, more than a few tools around to do stuff like this. 

Lots of gaps in the OP so the nirsoft stuff is probably a good starting point

so are you refreshing that explorer window while your watching it?  Those windows are static and won't show any changes until refreshed (F5)

Nice to see Trout get a mention on Libellules today. 

Nice piece of software from Skwire, and some worthy recognition :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

worth a read, something thats been bugging me (pun intended) for years!

I don't think this needs any explanation (Finally! a solution!)


what happens if there are multiple matches, ie where there are multiple records that fit within that tolerance?

and just how large are these 'numbers', <10 or <100 or >1,000,000 

and how are you 'viewing' these lists? 

I was torn between putting this here or in the dev's forum, but here goes...

FWIW when I googled TeamViewer there seemed to be a few question marks around it, hence my query

If both ends have Microsoft accounts there's Quick Assist (Windows 10) or Remote Assistance (pre-10 which didn't require a Microsoft account IIRC).


Haven't tried Quick Assist but have previously used Remote Assistance and it worked fine for what I was doing.

hadn't heard of that one before, but that sounds just the ticket  :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

I've just been using Skype as of late.  It works well enough for my purposes.

yeah, but that opens up other possibilities that I don't want to have to manage (and once the cats out of the bag there's no getting it back in)

General Software Discussion / desktop sharing tool
« on: May 13, 2018, 08:35 PM »
anyone got any current recommendations for a desktop sharing tool? 

looking for something simple - pretty limited use, ie desktop support for my inlaws (so potentially lots of calls, but only 1 or 2 users)

A search on DC throws a number of suggestions but most posts are quite old or have since disappeared

just finished 'Sea of Rust' by C. Robert Cargill.


It's a somewhat different take on a post apocalyptic world where our robot overlords have risen up

a very enjoyable read...

its certainly possible - I had (have) an old iriver DAC that used the audio jack for charging, data transfer, and playback

Could anyone here really believe that Trump could win the Nobel Peace Prize?

then again, did anyone really believe he'd win the presidency :o 

Living Room / Re: Why doesn't DC make its own browser?
« on: February 20, 2018, 02:13 AM »
I am of the feeling that there is some "harm" done every time we make a new section, in terms of fractionating the community.   So my preference is always to avoid creating new forum sections.

perfectly understandable.

Is there a compromise whereby all that info could be stored in a central place rather than scattered across multiple random threads?

Living Room / Re: Why doesn't DC make its own browser?
« on: February 19, 2018, 07:38 PM »
been following this thread and it sort of dovetails into something I've been thinking about for some time

Given the rather appalling offerings in the browser market I'm wondering if there is some value in creating a new(?) board, similar to the mini-review board but specifically for browsers (Browser Wars)?

I envisage that it would borrow a lot from the mini-review board in that posters would need to provide detailed info/feedback (ie no 'chrome is great' posts).

The idea is to provide a centralised area where users can find info on various browsers, their hereditary, feature sets, strengths, weaknesses, use cases etc.   

And most of the info should stay relevant (unlike the mini-reviews which can date quickly)

is this worth pursuing or investigating?
