Cheers for the help guys.  For the moment, I have put this project on hold as I am somewhat in-love with the new CryENGINE SDK and wanna learn more about it!

I will back Beatz up on this as I do know him.

I _tried_ to help on this subject but I kinda failed lol


Downloaded the rar file and uploaded it to my post, its legit smiley (Couldnt upload as a direct .dll so had to re-rar it lol)

If you wanna download it DIRECTLY as ONLY a .dll, then use this link: (MY Web Server)

Well, just finished yet another map on CryENGINE, this time with a hell of a lot more detail, roads, usable vehicles, realistic terrain, trees and other vegitation etc.  Spent a good few hours creating it, only to find out that you simply CANNOT share your work with ANYBODY.

For the moment, if your thinking about using this, check the forums first at: http://www.crydev.net

Probably worth learning how to use this, but don't waste your whole day as you will be mega pissed when you come to sharing it with a friend to show of your creativity!

As of now, all its good for is creating screenshots or tiny screencasts...thats about it.

CryENGINE Free Use

Anyone can now download a full version of the best All-In-One Game Development Engine, for free and use it without charge for non-commercial game development. You can try out the fastest toolset for creating game worlds and use the power of CryENGINE 3 in your own games

CryENGINE Free Use
You can use CryENGINE 3 for free in educational facilities, even if you are charging tuition. We have always offered our engine for free to educators, but now individual students can also freely download the engine and use it to learn about real-time 3D development.

CryENGINE 3 is also free for non-commercial use; if you are distributing your game or application for free (and not charging for your work in producing it, whether directly or indirectly), no additional license is required.

CryENGINE 3 Independent Developers Platform
We want you to make games with CryENGINE 3 that people will want to play. We hope that your work will lead to a product you can commercialise. If this is the case, before you can sell your work or your game, you must seek a development license for CryENGINE 3.

CryENGINE 3 for Independent Studios, Free To Play Games or Downloadable Games
Crytek has attractive options for smaller games built with CryENGINE 3, with shorter development timescales. If you want to move your game onto platforms other than PC, or you need access to CryENGINE 3 source code, please contact Crytek to find out more about our licensing for Independent Studios.


You know what this means right?

This means small developers like you and me now have a supremely powerfull tool at our fingertips.

I would LOVE to see what some people here at DC can come up with!

Get Creative!

Heres what I made rather quickly with this amazing tool!

Awesome review!  Thmbsup Thmbsup Thmbsup Thmbsup Thmbsup

Just downloaded it based on your findings and will give it a better test-drive in the morning when im a little more awake!  cheesy

For now thoguh, I can see this coming in handy!  Especially with the fact it not only converts files, it also does it as a copy, so the original is not modified in any way! - Very very cool indeed!
1432  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / DC Live Chat Feature Offline Until Further Notice on: August 14, 2011, 11:41:59 AM
Due to an attack on the servers at mibbit.com, Mouser has decided to disable the live chat from the DC forum until further notice.

If you would still like to chat with us on IRC, please download something like mIRC and connect to #donationcoder on the efnet network.

Mibbit AJAX IRC client service being hacked. The proof of hack is further backed up by Mibbit’s official statement. Mibbit is a web-based client for modern web browsers that supports Internet Relay Chat (IRC). Mibbit connects to IRC from anywhere on almost any device. There are Mibbit and hundreds of IRC networks for places to chat. The Anonymous sabu tweet that the Mibbit Chat network was Hacked and he had posted a Pastebin link on the tweet about the Mibbit details. On the pastebin Data there where many Personal Data and many links.

 The Mibbit had detected the unauthorized access to the server which runs their blog. Mibbit shut it down and began investigating . Later today at around 8pm GMT Mibbit shutdown the IRC services after it became clear that several pieces of backed up data had been accessed maliciously from another server, tools.mibbit.com.

 Mibbit now know the data's included The personal information of 9 Mibbit operators including their names, accounts and e-mail addresses . A backup of nickserv data from April 2011 with up to 10,000 user nicknames and their credentials andTwo sets of backup data for one operator user account PMs and Channel logs, used for testing are Leaked. Currently Mibbit are working on securing and restoring the affected services. Mibbit are treating this as a significant and malicious attack on Mibbit services which impacts users and which has placed user data at risk. Mibbit are continuing to work to remedy this situation and bring back affected services online as quickly as possible. Mibbit asked apologies for the disruption, inconvenience and difficulty this attack has caused to you and your users. As Mibbit have updates about the attack, the backup data which was stolen from tools.mibbit and the next steps to recover services we will share it via the blog and the #help channel.

Wow...just thought...imagine how many people this going to affect OUTSIDE of facebook...

All those websites that use Facebook Connect to allow customers to play games, share data etc...bye bye accounts lol
1434  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Opera wand. Does it work well? Enough to abandon lastpass? on: August 11, 2011, 12:59:07 AM
Am I the only person in the world who uses (and prefers to) Opera 'out-of-the-box'?

No addons, no plugins, no nothing.

Opera Wand has never let me down to date, and because I know exactly where the wand data is stored, I can easily back it up in-case of format or loss of HDD

Im not stupid enough to store paypal, banking, eBay or such usernames and passwords in ANY software so I never need to worry about that and I have no intention of storing username and password data on a 'stealable' USB data stick anytime in the next thousand years!  Cool

When I used Opera on the PC (Opera Mini still in use for mobile devices), the wand was the stupidest thing I'd ever seen. Here's the deal: Every other browser on the planet will auto-fill your login information when you revisit a page (that you've saved). We're talking only username and password. With Opera, you have to go and press the Wand button, or use a keyboard shortcut, to have it fill the username and password with your saved info. No auto-fill without invoking the 'wand'. This was an unnecessary extra step. Sure, I suppose it could fill more stuff in than standard browsers, for those much more rare occasions when that's needed, but for the every-day chore of logging into your favorite web sites, you had to go hit that stupid wand. Did they ever change this?

Don't really understand your problem with hitting Ctrl-Enter to invoke the wand.  This step helps with "hiding" your login details until requested.

If logging into your favorite websites is a 'daily chore' then may I suggest finding better websites?  I love nothing more than logging into a website to see if I have any new messages or replies, or something good to read! (Although I rarely have to login to anything anymore unless a cookie expires cause my PC is on 24/7!)

Also, never underestimate the effect of a well made molotov.

This is a booking photo (I swiped off a news site) of a woman that attacked a guy in Datona Beach with a molotov cocktail. (see attachment in previous post)

I can't look at it without laughing (for an hour). Talk about the ultimate poster-child for flat out nutz.

That photo just screams "They are coming, and they are not pleased, What has been seen, cannot be unseen"


1436  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Film vs. Movie? on: August 10, 2011, 11:37:28 PM
Here in England, I know I use the term 'Film' more than 'Movie'  ("Hey, you wanna grab some food and watch a film tonight?")

My take on the difference in this context though, is as follows:

     Documentary Recording
     French Subtitled Stuff

     Any other feature length title (Spiderman, Mr. Poppers Penguins, etc)
1437  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Operation Facebook (will you rejoice?) on: August 10, 2011, 05:00:37 PM
They can only shut it down until the DNS registers the new nameservers/IP's - Pretty sure Facebook has plenty of both to play with if Anon do try anything.

Nobody is FORCED to use facebook, people have chosen to...so what they are doing makes zero sence.
1438  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: xkcd - password truth on: August 10, 2011, 09:27:34 AM
For the majority of my passwords, I use a variation of my primary one, which is a 32 character password, with some characters from the website, or services' name placed into certain points of the password.

Secret answers never represent the actual question and are usually random sentences (depending on haracter limitation)

Hack that you b***ards  cheesy
1439  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / UK Riots: Have you been affected? on: August 09, 2011, 04:10:19 PM
England is going down the shitter, and I for one have prepped my house just in case it hits my area.

Anybody else affected by this madness?

Its just been reported that a city less than 20 miles from me is under attack now, and I can hear sirens going down the main road, so it sounds like there may be something happening nearby.
1440  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Steam: Savior or Slayer of PC Gaming? on: August 08, 2011, 08:08:05 AM
Sad thing is if you're a gamer, you're likely going to end up with the requirement to be online to game (or at least *have* an Internet connection for activation) whether you're on Steam or not. See recent Ubisoft games for example...

There was enough of an outcry against this practice that they backed away from it.  That's the key thing- if it hurts the bottom line, they won't do it.  That's the only thing that they learn from.  And a large enough bloc has to have the willingness to do so.

They removed it, but they're bringing it back again for new games. Ubisoft says always-on DRM is 'a success,' fans are confused.

Ubisoft said it has seen "a clear reduction in piracy of our titles which required a persistent online connection, and from that point of view the requirement is a success," speaking with PC Gamer.

Im sorry, but 'Always-on' DRM is going to punish those who want to play the game, but may be having internet problems.  Pirates are not going to simply give up and buy the game instead, they will just look for something else, or wait for someone to figure out how to break that DRM, and then those who have lost internet connection for ANY reason will simply aquire a cracked version to play offline.

I have several games in my collection that I did not realise had this stupid DRM crap in it, so while I was in the process of moving my ISP services to my new property, I was obviously without internet for awhile.  During that time I would have LOVED to be able to load up said games to play them, but low and behold, I got the stupid "Please make sure your connected to the internet and try again" messages! - wtf, those games are OFFLINE ONLY, I PAID FOR THEM...LET ME PLAY THEM!

Buyers can and will become pirates, but pirates will rarely ever become buyers.  Game companies simply do not understand this fact.  They say piracy harms developers, but in my view i would rather reward those who purchase, but in the same respect, be thankful of those who USE it.  I have pirated several things for several different reasons (usually lack of money to try out big software titles that would otherwise cost thousands to play with).  The difference is though, if I could afford, I would have bought them instead!

See!  That's where my program comes in: it gives you motivation to hold a few coins back... cheesy

Ha, very true, but I do honestly have a hatred for money.  I like to have enough to pay the bills and feed the dogs and the rest is given to my mrs who decided what random stuff to buy tongue

I've been using this program myself at the end of the work-day, when I empty my pockets and file my coins into their respective DC mugs on my computer desk cheesy

MY pockets get emptied straight in to my mrs's purse lmao
1443  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Do You Want Your Searches Monitored? on: August 06, 2011, 12:00:29 PM
lol. I can imagine what is going to happen if the likes of Google and Bing start monitoring all searches by its users...Domains like piratesearch.com will start popping up!

On a better note:

Forums that usually use terms like "JFGI (Just F***ing Google It)" will maybe start answering questions instead!
1444  Special User Sections / N.A.N.Y. 2012 / Re: NANY 2012 Pledge & Early Beta: Found Money on: August 06, 2011, 10:47:09 AM
That would work as well, Stephen.  I think I'll take these suggestions under serious consideration, but probably for a post-NANY2012 release.

Yeah, no rush with it smiley

I rarely find any money on the street anyway haha, last time I did, was about 7 years ago when I found £180 in a bundle, which was awesome cause I had only just enough money to get home that day!
1445  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Steam: Savior or Slayer of PC Gaming? on: August 06, 2011, 10:45:43 AM
^ Ummm... have you tried this recently?  All you have to do is restart, and it will ask you to go to offline mode.  They fixed that a long time ago.

Tried it yesterday lol, It refused point blank to go into offline mode, which means I cant even play Supreme Commander 2 in offline mode Sad

Steam pisses me off for one simple reason...

I have a few single player OFFLINE games on steam, BUT if I happen to lose internet without switching to offline mode...can I play them...can I f*#$

Please make sure you have an active internet connection before switching to offline mode

Instead of localisation per-se why not allow users to edit a .txt file and add all their types of coins/notes(bills) in there.

If you did this, people could also start writing the currency files for you to ship with the final build, where they simply select the required currency from a list, and it grabs the info from the file itself!
1449  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Re: C# Help Pls :) on: August 06, 2011, 08:47:15 AM
If you can post a bit more about what you're trying to do, maybe I can help some more.

It just basically needs to be a live preview of code written in a richTextBox


I understand this part as that very basic but what it needs to do is navigate to the loaded HTML file selected from a openFileDialog so I figured the code would be more along the lines of:


Two relevant SO questions:

Cant check links right now, but will look ASAP! Thanks

Check out MozNet for sure. I've used the old GeckoFX control, and it's wonderful. I bought a MozNet license but haven't had time to use it quite yet. It's dirt cheap too. (I bought early, so I got a small discount, but it's still cheap.)

Im not dead set on using the standard IE engine that comes with visual c# but im somewhat stuck with it right now as im using a machine with no internet connection, so figured I would try at least get the basic functions down.

In the project im doing, im using Syntax Highlighting, (Smart)AutoCompletion and a selection of other features that I feel will make it run a lot better and be a lot more usefull in the future.

Im also sort of re-inventing the wheel with the project in itself as theres no real shortage of software to do some of the things im adding into mine, but I have yet to find one that actually offers them all in one simple window, without having to download 6 seperate suites to do it!  Its an adaptation of several earlier projects of mine that I was using as a starting point to learn about the things I needed for this.  Still want to bang my face on the desk  wallbash when implementing (Smart)AutoComplete but its getting there.

Any news on a GBP version of this?

No real point in me downloading it right now as im never going to find a US$ or coin lol
