51  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Path and Search missing from Windows Explorer after reboot on: October 09, 2014, 01:25:49 AM
Hi folks,

I tend to have a few Windows Explorer windows open at any given time, and I have configured Windows to re-open any Explorer windows again after a reboot. One issue I see sometimes is that occasionally a window or two (or three) will open up after a reboot without showing the path or address bar. It doesn't happen every time, and when it does happen, it doesn't happen to all the Explorer windows that get opened up. Just one or two every now and then.

The only "solution" I've found isn't really a solution at all: I have to close the window and open a new one. Any new Explorer windows opened up will show the path and search areas as they should.

[attachimg=#]

Any tips on what the problem is and how to prevent it from happening again? I've never heard of it happening to anyone else, with the exception of the only relevant search result I came across:

Missing navigation path in windows explorer after booting of Windows 7

Sadly, there was no working solution there.

Any tips, suggestions, or solutions would be very much appreciated.

That would be fun... Except I am not good at art, and I don't have the kind of things I'd need. Like a fully rigged/animated 3D model of Cody & Baby Cody. Or fully animated sprite sheets of Cody & Baby Cody.

And it's hard to have those in advance when you don't know the theme, and thus don't know what kind of game you'll end up making until it's time to make it.

Yeah, that's a hard one. I've released a couple of things this year. But I've already announced them here.

I'd feel kind of as if it was cheating to claim those as my submissions to NANY 2015.

Then again, there's another Ludum Dare coming up in December which I'm planning to participate in. That's close enough that perhaps I could combine LD31 with a NANY 2015 release. Though honestly I'm still not entirely sure how I feel about that idea, either.

The new Steam Discovery Queue is worthless. 12 games (at a time) it thinks I may be interested in.

"This game is in your queue because..."
  • "It's popular." -- Yeah... I don't really care if it's popular. Not interested.
  • "It's a top seller." -- Yeah... this is just another way of saying it's popular. Still not interested.

And that's it. Imagine how well that would work introducing you to other people.

"We recommend you get to know John Doe because..."
  • "He's popular."
  • "Most other people are getting to know him right now."

But what is he like? What are his interests? Do we have anything in common?

It's totally useless.

How about "This game is in your queue because..."
  • "You spent 500 hours playing Terraria and this game is popular among gamers who like Terraria."
  • "You spent 300 hours playing Civilization and this game is similar to Civilization."
  • "It's a 4X strategy game, and you play a lot of 4X strategy games."
  • "A lot of your friends play this game."

If you read my original post to will see that I was asking for "ideas".

Here's an idea:

Try being a little more considerate to people who are trying to help you.

Heh.  The Admin on W9 Forums had to scramble to change everything to Windows 10.

They couldn't just do a search and replace on it! What if they accidentally turned every reference to Windows 95 or 98 to Windows 105 or Windows 108? The results could be disastrous! tongue
63  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Windows 10 Announced on: October 01, 2014, 11:40:23 PM
How are you people installing it? The 64-bit USA ISO just has errors in VirtualBox when I try to install it.

I had problems too so ended up using VMware.

So far it seems to be the same as Win8 without the hassle of bypassing the Metro screen.

You caught me! embarassed I removed my post because after I asked, I tried again and got it to work.

I'm not sure what the solution was, to be honest.

I tried it with the 32-bit ISO and it warned me about needing to enable PAE, so I enabled it and got to the setup screen. Then I mounted the 64-bit ISO and rebooted my VM and it worked. So maybe I needed to enable PAE to get it to work?

How'd you get it to install? It crashes my VirtualBox VM during boot.

I installed a 32-bit copy in a 64-bit Windows 8.1 Hyper-V VM. From initial boot to desktop was just a bit over 5 minutes. While it runs just fine, I was rather disappointed that the sound card didn't work. Now I've learned to expect that out of a Linux distro ... But Windows on Windows??? Yeish!

OK. I guess I'll try a 32-bit ISO. . .

Heh heh. Notice the URL contains W9TPI, i.e., Windows 9 Technical Preview Image. Grin

According to Microsoft's website, the SHA-1 for the above ISO should be: EB75A3D3C0F621F175B75DC65DB036D0E00EAC43

But don't you also need a product key for the ISO to work?

If you like Risk of Rain, consider backing this game called Warlocks which is very much inspired by RoR:

It's in the final 24 hours and needs ~$1,500 to reach its goal.

Uh oh... I think the universe is going to collapse on itself.

Windows is well known for sucking every other version. XP was good. Vista wasn't. Win7 was good. Win8 wasn't.

We were all expecting Win9 to be good. But if Win9 is going to be called Win10, but Win10 is supposed to suck, but Win9 is going to be good...

CANNOT COMPUTE!

It's that time again for the Ludum Dare October Challenge!

The purpose: Just as Ludum Dare encourages you to make a game, the October Challenge encourages you to sell a game. Or put another way:

Finish a game — Take it to market — Earn $1

That is your goal. That is the October Challenge.

So far I've found it harder to find what I'm interested in. I don't care about curators. I don't care what other random or YouTube/Twitter Famous people recommend. The only recommendations I care about are from some people I actually know, and they will usually tell me "Hey, you should check out this game!" instead of making a review/curation page for me to look at.

"Endless" scrolling things suck. There's no easy to way to link to it or resume where you left off if you click a link and then the back button.

I like the color scheme. I guess.

One thing that I really do like, though, is that it is now very easy to see which games you already own, since there is now an indicator across the game's banner image which shows whether you own it or if it's on your wishlist. That's nice.

Not quite. (emphasis added below)

Andreas Diantoro, the president of Microsoft Indonesia, confirms that Windows 9 will be a free upgrade for all Windows 8 users.

It's a free "upgrade" for people who own Windows 8. That excludes a lot of people, myself included. So no, Windows 9 will not be free.

How is that a syllogism? huh

An instance of a form of reasoning in which a conclusion is drawn (whether validly or not) from two given or assumed propositions (premises), each of which shares a term with the conclusion, and shares a common or middle term not present in the conclusion (e.g., all dogs are animals; all animals have four legs; therefore all dogs have four legs.)
