Skins, Models and Maps / Converting MD3 to MD2
« on: October 06, 2013, 09:47:17 PM »
I was hunting around and I found some Generations Arena (for Q3) and Quake2 Generations mod stuff. The Quake2 Generations stuff has md2 models for some guns etc from Q1, Doom, and Wolfenstein. I was trying to rip the Doom shotgun and double barrel shotgun outta that to use, but the models are kinda low poly and I'm not too fond of them. But in the Generations Arena stuff, there's also a few weapon models like the Doom shotgun and double barrel shotgun. These look a lot better to me and I'd like to play around with them in Quake2. So I downloaded the latest QuArK 6.6 beta 6 and tried to convert the md3's to md2 but didn't have any luck. I pretty much have NO CLUE what I'm doing with QuArK. Apparently these md3's are broken down into sections and I can only save the models one section at a time. I have no idea how to save the whole thing in one piece along with the original JPG skin to where it'll work properly in Q2.

So is there anyone who could do me a real solid and walk me through how to do such a thing? Basically, I just wanna convert md3 models to md2. If I gotta use something besides QuArK, that's cool. Any and all help will be much appreciated. With any luck, maybe this'll even help me get started figuring out how to make brand new models.

Politics / Who killed JonBenet Ramsey?
« on: September 19, 2013, 11:06:01 AM »

The JonBenet Ramsey murder case is still unsolved after a little over 16 years. Dunno if Boulder County CO has any special unit dedicated to cold cases, but it's safe to assume that at least the state has a couple of cold case teams. Being that it's one of the 3 most famous unsolved murder cases in recent American history (probably along with the Black Dhalia case and Jimmy Hoffa), I'm sure someone has gone back through all the files with a fine tooth comb and probably re-re-re-checked for any DNA evidence that might a score a match somewhere.

It's pretty sad that even 16 or 17 years later, some people STILL think the parents had anything to do with it. If you've ever seen any of the pretty thorough documentaries on TV about the case, you'd know with almost 0 room for doubt that the kids parents had nothing to do with it. They never for once, during, before, or after the investigation, acted in any way that would lead anyone believe they might be guilty of her murder. Yet here we are, 16 years later, and a couple of hacks in the media wanna stir shit up to get the public evil-eye back on the poor girls parents who've already been through enough.

I dunno, just always found this case fascinating because of the lack of solid evidence pointing to anyone even though the quantity of evidence was high. Discussion? Comments? Opinions?

Quake / |iR|Focalor's Camo Brightskins Pak NOW AVAILABLE!
« on: September 18, 2013, 08:30:05 AM »

My first brightskins pak. I didn't spend that much time on these, and they didn't turn out quite as good as I'd hoped they would. Hopefully sometime down the road I can do another version with similar bright camo patterns and add more detail, but these will do for now.

Quake / |iR|Focalor's USMC Vietnam Tribute Pak NOW AVAILABLE!
« on: September 12, 2013, 06:45:50 PM »
Just finished posting my latest pak. Lots of new and somewhat improved stuff in this one. Several decent sized images on the preview page for it, so it might take a bit to load it all if you have a slower connection speed. Lots of new larger sized icons. Repainted a bunch of the hi-res models. Check it out if you wanna.

/dev/random / Pot Thoughts
« on: September 04, 2013, 05:53:07 AM »
You know how you're smoking weed and sometimes... or most of the time... you start thinking about shit a little harder than you really oughta? You know, examining the finer points of the universe, pondering things about life that you wouldn't look twice at if you weren't high, and having these epiphanies and revelations that completely blow your mind at the time, but are really just inane and pointless to anyone who isn't "inside the matrix". (note: "inside the matrix" = high as fuck)

Anyway, feel free to share some of the weird and dumb shit you think about when you're high.

I got up pretty early this morning several hours before the sun was even up and went down to the basement to smoke a few bongloads. I'm just sitting there admiring at my new John Deere riding mower as I'm ripping away at the pipe. I started wondering how people used to mow their lawns before lawn mowers were invented. I know before they had motors on them,... like in the 1940's and 50's probably...,  people used to use those heavy-as-hell gear driven mower tools that you had to push. That had to suck. But what about the people that lived back around the time of the Civil War and earlier. How did they cut grass? I mean you know SOMEONE had to cut it. You see the pictures of dead bodies from the war laying in fields, and the grass ain't tall. Did livestock chew it down? Did someone get out there with a scythe and work their ass off cutting it short? "Gotta get this grass short! People gonna have a war here next week! Can't have em tripping over holes and shit they can't see through tall grass!" :D Did people have lawns around their houses back then? Did they just let the shit grow tall and then cut it short maybe once every month in the summer months or did they do it weekly like people do now?

Fuckin' weird shit to think about right?

But then I got to thinking about what those people would do if you transported them through time and plopped them down in the present. Personally, I don't think we in the present would have much of an opportunity to ask them questions about the past. I dunno that they'd be mesmerized enough to ask us questions about the present either. They'd probably have a few questions at first. But then I think that would probably give way to utter disgust and hatred for us. These people didn't have lawn mowers. They probably had to cut grass with scissors and shit. They had to do EVERYTHING the hard way. And yet we complain and piss and moan like it's the end of the fucking world when something stupid happens like... a 20 minute flight delay. I think they'd wanna kick the shit out of us and then go back to 1800 and tell people, "STOP FUCKING! The people of the future that we produce are fucking pussies and idiots! We must prevent this horrible thing called American Idol from existing!" :D


/dev/random / The Dead Pool
« on: August 15, 2013, 11:30:25 PM »

Reeeeeeeeally!?! No way!!! Didn't see THAT coming! ::)

Idea. Who wants to play dead pool? Never heard of a dead pool before? It's a pretty fucked up game. It's where you make a list of names of famous or semi-famous people who you expect to die within a certain period of time. Usually people bet money on these things, but I guess we could just play for points. We'll run this one up until midnight on December 31st.

Here's the rules... and I'm making them up off the top of my head, and it ain't ALWAYS the way a dead pool works, but it should work good for this type of game.

  • You pick 10 total names of famous or semi-famous people. (No one who is currently in the hospital with some terminal disease or anything like that, cuz that's basically fuckin' cheating, you prick.)
  • Post them in a list of TEN names with numbers 1 through 10 by their names, 1 being the one you think has the best chance of the 10 to die before the ending date of the game. (See the next rule for WHY you should list them in this specific order.)
  • If your #1 pick dies, you get 50 points. If your #2 pick dies, you get 45 points. If your #3 pick dies, you get 40 points. If your #4 pick dies, you get 35 points. If your #5 pick dies, you get 30 points. If your #6 pick dies, you get 25 points. If your #7 pick dies, you get 20 points. If your #8 pick dies, you get 15 points. If your #9 pick dies, you get 10 points. If your #10 pick dies, you get 5 points.
  • Different players are allowed to have the same names on their list, but no two players are allowed to have more than 6 matching names on their lists.
  • Once you have posted your death list, you are NOT allowed to edit it or rearrange the ordering of it after 48 hours of the initial posting of the list. If your post reads that it has been edited after that deadline, you will be disqualified.
  • IF someone from your list ACTUALLY DIES, the pool of players will vote on whether or not to award an additional 5 bonus points for picking someone who was unlikely to die but did anyway. For example,... if you pick Justin Bieber and that little bastard actually dies in some horrible fiery car crash... well I think we can all agree, that's definitely worthy of a bonus, am I right?
  • The player with most accumulated points at 12:01am January 1st, 2014, wins the game. No money or prizes will be awarded for this, it's just for fun.

BE AWARE... These rules might be appended later if there's anything I forgot to cover.

Get to it! There's a slew of aging Hollywood celebs and washed-up sitcom has-been's with crack habits out there just waiting to turn into worm food. There's no excuse for not being able to pick at least 5 of them to croak. And don't feel guilty if they DO die. It's not like YOU killed them. And if you did, they probably had it coming anyway.

I'm gonna wait a bit to post my own list. Wanna think about this a little first. :smiley_aagd:

/dev/random / The Official 2013-2014 Football Season Thread
« on: August 04, 2013, 06:52:12 PM »
It's on like Donkey Kong, motherbitches.

Was watching the first half of the Hall of Fame exhibition game with the Dolphins and Cowboys. Looks like Miami has made some good acquisitions this year with free agents and drafts, but they're still getting their wet dreams shat all over like always. It's preseason (technically pre-preseason or something), so who gives a fuck though. Can't really accurately judge a team by preseason performance anymore. Some shine, and some play possum on purpose so they can roll out the big guns when it counts and catch their opponents off guard.

I guess Miami let Reggie Bush go. Apparently he's at Detroit now. The price of gas may rise and fall, but the one thing you can always count on is the Detroit Lions management to make stupid choices. :ohlord: "You suck? Kim Kardashian done fucked all the talent outta ya? SURE, WE'LL FUCKIN' HIRE YER ASS! YEAH, C'MON!"

Trouble Shooting / PC tune-up
« on: July 20, 2013, 11:53:19 AM »
The system I'm running on right now is pretty new, only a little over a year and a half old. I'm not really having any emergency panic situations or anything. Everything seems to be working just fine. I've been having a problem with a higher than normal ping lately. My normal ping is around 33, recently it ranges from the mid-70's up to 120 and everywhere in between, never steady, which is why I don't play much anymore. Not really a problem I'm trying to address here though. I don't think its anything that running a PC tune-up program will fix, I'm sure it's all my ISP screwing me like usual. But even though shit seems to be running okay, I'd still like to run one of these just to help keep things cleaned up and running as smooth as possible. Last time I ran one, it was the AVG one that supposedly only allows you to run it only ONCE unless you buy a 1yr subscription for it... which I ain't gonna do. But I ran it, and it seemed to make things start faster. It found a whole slew of useless junk files from random things I installed and blew it off, clearing out a little disk space.

So can anyone recommend a good free PC tune-up program that'll run more than once?

Politics / The Zimmerman Trial... Possible Race Riots?
« on: July 13, 2013, 12:18:22 AM »
I don't understand this. Why do any black people think that George Zimmerman is white? Lemme put it this way... if you saw a group of Klansmen rallying somewhere, walked up to the apparent leader of the group, asked if you could possibly join them, and they take one look at you and say, "Are you fucking kidding me?"... like they would most definitely say to George Zimmerman... then chances are astronomically good that you aren't white.

It's not a black vs white thing. Not at all.

I'm personally kinda undecided as to his guilt or innocence. As a permit carrying gun owner, I can't completely call him innocent. If you have a permit for a handgun, you NEVER follow and seek out a potential threat. That's not entirely what the "stand your ground" law is for. On the other hand... I've seen the photos of Trayvon Martin's dead body as well as the police photos of George Zimmerman detailing his injuries. There was not a single mark on Trayvon Martin's face AT ALL. The only visible injury he had was the gunshot wound. Zimmerman had a busted puffy nose, blood running down his face, and blood running out of gashes in the back of his head as well. Judging from the injuries, Martin was whooping the shit out of Zimmerman before he finally fired.

Still, there's probably a ton of evidence that the jury has seen which the public hasn't. And the "crazy ass cracka" star witness obviously didn't do the prosecutor any favors. So who knows what the hell the jury is thinking right now.

Politics / Revisionist History
« on: May 02, 2013, 02:10:29 AM »
The South lost the Civil War. I get it. Slavery was horrible. I get it. People who don't get these things are obviously idiots.

But as a white Southerner living in the State of Georgia, I'm growing increasingly annoyed and alarmed with how certain people are able to sway official policy and public sentiment based on what they personally find to be offensive without any consideration for the other side of the argument.

A little history... In 1865 after the American Civil War had come to an end, former members of the Confederate Army formed the Ku Klux Klan, a secretive insurgent militia formed to combat the injustices and oppression that Southerners had been dealing with at the hands of what they perceived as Union occupational forces during the reconstruction years after the war. The insurgency lacked the organization and support that it needed to be successful against the Union, and in 1874 it was forced to disband, although several other smaller paramilitary groups did form in it's wake.

In 1915, the Ku Klux Klan was officially reborn, although with a much different agenda. During this period in history, people were growing increasingly paranoid about Communism infecting the United States government, as well as several other "evils" including Catholicism, an increasing number of immigrants with anti-American sentiments, jews, and wide-spread alcohol abuse. Indeed the Ku Klux Klan was a big supporter of prohibition efforts at that time. And the location where this 2nd incarnation of the Klan took place was at Stone Mountain, GA, located about 15 miles NE of Atlanta.

Prior to 1915, the United Daughters of the Confederacy had been raising money to pay for a large memorial to Confederate veterans and selected Stone Mountain as the primary site for this. The United Daughters of the Confederacy IS NOT and HAS NEVER BEEN part of the Ku Klux Klan. It was a sisterhood/organization of daughters, wives, and widows of Confederate veterans with several goals including working to preserve the memory of Confederate veterans and the material history of the Civil War, helping survivors of the Civil War, preserving the legacy of southern women who played integral roles during and after the Civil War, etc. They still exist today.

The carving of the now famous memorial on the face of Stone Mountain was finally begun in 1916 financed solely by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. It was a HUGE project, a very dangerous and slow moving one, and the commissioned sculptors abandoned work on the unfinished project in 1928.

In 1956, spurred by conflicts rising from the Civil Rights Movement and desegregation, the Georgia State flag was changed...

It is quite obvious WHY the State flag was changed. There is little one can argue to claim that it was NOT racially motivated.

Since the re-founding of the Klan in 1915, the owners of the property (the Venable family) containing Stone Mountain itself had granted easement rights to the Klan to use the land as a site for rallies, celebrations, etc. In 1958, the State of Georgia purchased the land from the Venable family, and immediately denied the Klan from using the land further by voiding the easement. I think this paints a pretty vivid picture of the political climate in the State at the time. On one hand they are changing the state flag to contain the Confederate stars and bars, and on the other hand they are working to evict the Ku Klux Klan by buying the land for more than 1 million dollars, which was a HUGE amount of money back in 1958.

In 1964, the State of Georgia finally financed work for the completion of the memorial carving. It was officially completed in 1972.

In 2001, after several years of lobbying by certain groups, the state flag was finally changed to remove the Confederate stars and bars. Many people protested the change at the time, including myself. But in retrospect, it was obviously the right thing to do. Seeing as how the purpose for including the Confederate flag in 1956 was NOT to honor Confederate veterans but to claim opposition to Civil Rights Movement efforts, it's not an honorable way to display it given that history of it's introduction to the state flag, and it should've been removed.

Fast forward to 2013 now...

THIS is an OUTRAGE. A handful of people who are obviously completely uneducated as to the purpose of this monument are seeking to destroy this carving that literally took more than a lifetime to complete. This is HIGHLY alarming. So far, not many people have signed the petition. But I'm afraid that further media exposure which omits important facts about it will further support this effort to erase a part of state and national history. What alarms me even more is that if this campaign is ever successful, it will set a precedent by which OTHER Civil War memorials may be destroyed or removed. I live not too far from a little town known as Jefferson where in the town square there stands a smaller memorial to Civil War veterans. If certain uneducated people think the Stone Mountain monument is nothing but a symbol of racism, they will certainly believe that every other monument is no different.

/dev/random / The Man Thread
« on: January 13, 2013, 10:19:37 PM »

This thread is for all things manly, including, but not limited to:
  • Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, Boats (basically anything with a motor)
  • Tools
  • Beer
  • Strippers
  • BBQ Grills
  • Ball Scratching
  • Farting and/or Burping
  • Pissing in the shower

Yes, ladies, you are better looking than that other woman at the mall and those jeans do not make your butt look big. Now go read another thread, you'll probably just find this one to be very boring.

I think she left... good.

So they finally unveiled the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7. This thing is SEXY covered in SEXY. More info and lots of pics to beat your meat to here:

I've seen a few other pics scattered across the web of various 2014 Corvette Stingray "concept" cars, so I'm not sure if any of those will actually be an available body style or even if they really are planning to resurrect the old Stingray designs. There's also rumors that Chevy could possibly be considering bringing the Chevelle back. Who knows though. The automotive market is pretty tedious still. None of the remaining car companies can really afford to take the risk of producing anything that might turn out to be a failure.

Normally I wouldn't report someone making the occasional racist comment, but since this person decided to do it in addition to using someone elses normal player name, it's their own fault for it getting any attention.

I was spectating on DM maybe 5 or 10 minutes ago when this person using the alias "Shit" popped in and without any apparent provocation started being a prick.

Politics / 2012 Presidential Election Poll
« on: October 10, 2012, 06:26:31 PM »
Just curious... who is everyone planning on voting for?

I already answered as option #4, no vote. I do not like ANY of the candidates, even the 3rd party and independents. But if I was going to vote, I'd probably bite my fist and vote for Obama/Biden. I hate them all, but these days I have very little trust in the Republican party's ability to run a stable economy. I also don't trust in Mitt Romney's abilities to be the spokesman for our country if some international incident occurs which might lead to war.
