  1. Are we talking puppet sex here, only Team America already scarred me for life on that
  2. The only issue I've had with L*nux installs is with L*nux identifying the variant of the Wifi card in a laptop, once that was sorted I never had further issues, updates just worked, the last update I had on a W10 tablet borked the touch screen and accelerometer so it won't auto rotate & I had to figure out how to break in & then fix the power settings in order to get the touch screen working again as it's kind of necessary on a tablet device, if I hadn't managed that it would be a brick, I had no say about the update it just happened And yeah I know it's not 'just' Microsoft, I know there are cameras everywhere, I know others use my data & I take steps to minimise my digital footprint, I might not be very successful but it's my data & I'll do what I want with it, that's my choice As I said it's a cheap laptop, with integrated video, it should be fine on my main machine, I'll check Wine out thanks
  3. I'm currently looking at migrating my systems ( couple of laptops & desktops ) to l*nux I've looked at a few distro's & Zorin looks reasonable, the front end isn't too much of a shock to a life long windows user for a start I've set it up on a couple of laptops, one dedicated & one dual boot which went without a hitch I even put TDM on it, runs like a drugged slug on the laptop but I'm impressed it runs at all as it's a really low spec machine I just use for testing, basically I'm ironing out any issues before I tackle my main machine as I earn a living with that one If anyone knows any major issues with Zorin (based on Ubuntu) please shout out Also I'm looking at the possibility of running the existing W7 installation inside a virtual machine & isolating it from the network, I'd really like to do it without reinstalling windows & just let W7 sort out the sudden disappearance of half it's resources, anyone know if that's doable ? I may just ditch W7 as I can't think of any apps I use under W7 that haven't got equivalents under l*nux, I'd quite like my thief installs to work but I can ask on ttlg for that
  4. Thanks for all the hard work taaaki
  5. Thanks for all the hard work getting the forum back for us
  6. You've probably already seen this one then
  7. Thank you, looks like I missed the first one, I shall reload a save & go look ... nope I missed the 5th one, thanks again
  8. Finished this with all the loot & 5 out of 6 secrets, any chance of a secret list as I'd love to know what I've missed
  9. Complete aside here but changes to the usual way things operate need communicating to the player so they can use them The TDM universe works with a given set of rules, if those rules change in some subtle way it's not really fair on the player to expect them to guess this has happened unless there's some clue For example climbable banners aren't in many FM's so I don't even try climbing them, breakable lights would be another thing I wouldn't try unless I'd been informed prior to playing the FM that this was a feature So if this is going to be FM specific can the author please let the player know beforehand as I for one am not going to waste ammunition trying to shoot lights out unless I know there's a chance it'll work And if it's going to be a game wide feature can they be additions to the existing lights with some way of telling breakable lights from non breakable ones so existing FM's with electric lights aren't affected
  10. Sounds like the cunning artificers from discworld
  11. Now there's an idea for a mission, outsneak death to gain eternal life
  12. He climbed out of a deep sewer, looked up at the rooftops to see if there was a way up & stepped back for a better view it's easily done
  13. To stop Cortana, open a windows explorer window, find & rename it's folder, this will fail as Cortana is running but you should get a retry popup, then open the task manager, kill Cortana & quickly hit the retry button If you're too slow Cortana will restart & the rename will fail again & you'll get another retry popup, so try again until you manage to rename the folder Once the folder is renamed Cortana can't start At least until the next time Windows updates
  14. I've set my internet connection to metered on my tablet, told it not to update on battery & shrunk the windows partition as much as I can & made a 2nd drive in the space Now it only tries to update when I'm connected to the mains, there's enough room to download updates to the virus scanner which I get asked about but attempts to download O/S updates fail because there's not enough space As I only use it for twitter that's fine by me
  15. I've got some thoughts on this which may or may not be of interest I believe game designers can add a weapon like this if they want to, so I'm not seeing a huge reason for adding it to the main mod, unless it proves to be really popular among players Possible advantages of a KO arrow might be reusability - like noise arrows, precision - being able to take out a single AI in the middle of a group without raising an alarm Effectiveness could be limited by only having them work if they hit the back of the AI's head or some small target area like the whole head, however that doesn't give them much advantage over a BJ & sneaking, but it would stop them being the tactical nuke of the game Game designers could engineer situations where it might be useful, such as a group of AI where you have to cross the sight lines of some of them to get to the one you need to take out, or the one you need to get is in a large open space & always turns round before you can get to them, but it's a lot of effort just to showcase a new weapon I'm rather ambivalent about the idea, it might be nice to have but we already have a lot of weapons
