    Did this once for Discovery, but it's a terrible show. 😂 Here's hoping Strange New Worlds is better! Thought you guys might enjoy:

    Of all the new shows, SNW is the only one I really like. I agree that the main theme on it is lacking a bit of that panache though. The WC theme sure hits the spot.

    Fixin’ for a New Poll (January 30, 2022)

    Pliers. Definitely Pliers. He had the most character of them all. Reminds me of a mechanic I knew that died recently to Covid. Wouldn't take the vaccine. Rachel is good with her hands... Low hanging fruit. Shame, Aero. Shame.

    The Winning Ending (November 7, 2020)

    At the high end, when you have the money, healthcare can be better in America than anywhere else. That's the problem I was pointing out. They do, and it does. All you have to do is a simple cursory search to look for people coming to the US for medical treatment. People come into the US all the...

    The Winning Ending (November 7, 2020)

    Pointing out how low average intelligence is makes perfect sense. As the more understandable you make your speeches, the more audience you can reach. It's the reason most speeches aren't overly complex and precise. Oh dear, you seem to think I'm pro republican. Nothing could be further from...

    The Winning Ending (November 7, 2020)

    George Carlin said it best. Imagine the intelligence of the average person, then realize that half of the population is worse. Speaking at the level of an 8 year old might not be a bad idea when speaking to the public. Personally, I saw Trump for what he was. An ill informed, lazy, sad, angry...

    The Winning Ending (November 7, 2020)

    HAHAHAHA! Thanks, I needed that. It's pretty naive of you to think it really changes anything, but I guess we'll see. I lost all hope in politics ages ago. Nothing ever changes. And never forget, orange man bad! I wonder what'll happen the next time a republican wins the white house? Especially...

    Mark Hamill Narrates Ad in Support of Absentee Ballots and Joe Biden (November 3, 2020)

    It's going to be a mess all right. Personally, I can't say I really care who wins. Trump is a useless lazy anti-intellectual that aside from his current stance on China, I don't agree with much on. Biden isn't any better though. He has so many brain farts that I wonder whether he's even fit for...

    A basic demo video of the Ren'Py Visual Novel Engine.

    Oh dear. I looked up Ren'Py... Please tell me this will contain nothing of the furry persuasion. 😅 No arguments over the engine though. It seems made for just this kind of thing in mind.

    Absolute Territory 2.0 Update brings new VR experience graphical updates with more configurable options, user accessibility options, and more.

    Is this something you're intending to continue working on in the future, adding more polish in here and there or would you consider this game complete and only looking to do some debugging?

    Snug as a Bug in a Rug (June 13, 2020)

    Based on the question and the other ships in the list and assuming the f3v is the ubw light fighter I'd say the A-20.

    Snug as a Bug in a Rug (June 13, 2020)

    I chose the Devastator for obvious reasons. Plasma cannon, best shielding, most turrets, best missiles, possibility of loading mirv missiles, etc. If I had my choice though I'd choose the F-107 Lance/Dragon. Much greater fuel capacity with antimatter engines, shields just as strong as the...

    I've Created a WC4 HD Video Pack

    Did you ever get your hands on the 3do version? I've got a copy I can hunt up if you still like them.

    Star Trek: Picard | Free Series Premiere Episode on Youtube

    If I had to rank the trek series right now I'd rate them like this: Discovery's problem has everything to do with Burnham. She's a shit character all around. Personally, I'd give her a dishonorable discharge at the end of season 1. Doesn't matter that she ended the war, her mutiny and actions...

    Star Trek: Picard | Free Series Premiere Episode on Youtube

    Reverse engineering a manufacturing process, a complete set of blueprints, and a substitute for microcode/firmware from a microscopic piece of a final product is a lot like taking a single strand of our 46 strands and trying to recreate a human, yes. :D

    Star Trek: Picard | Free Series Premiere Episode on Youtube

    Personally, I like the way Star Trek Online explained the destruction of Romulus. It wasn't the Romulan system's sun that went nova, it was the Hobus system's sun. There's way more to it than that but you're better off playing through the story missions, no spoilers here. If you aren't prone to...

    Decades Later, A Legend Returns... (January 28, 2020)

    Huh, I was so focused on the design of the gun when I watched the show I never even really looked at the knife. Damn thing looks like a spaceship model they picked up one day and decided it would look cool as a gun. If anything I'm slightly reminded of a Kamrani when I look at it. I have the...

    WCP OGL + DVD Movies

    Windows 10 1909 x64 pro. Same issue as weise. Tried using mpeg2dec, the ac3 filter, klite, etc. It's almost like the videos are playing but relegated to a background layer or something. All I get is a black screen when those movies play (I can hear them just fine). I took an afternoon about a...

    Happy New Poll! (January 2, 2020)

    I wouldn't call Unknown Enemy, Standoff, and Saga to be small contributions. If anything, they're better than anything EA would be likely to make now, unless they could find a way to fill it with recurrent user spending. I think we'll see a nice mod or two for Outlaw take shape in the next year...

    WC3: what if you could win with Behemoth?

    I read up on this a long time ago, so correct me if I'm wrong with any detail. What's funny is that Japan had been putting out feelers for a bit about surrendering before we dropped the bombs. Yes, they wanted to keep some of the territories they'd acquired but the only non-negotiable point was...

    WC3: what if you could win with Behemoth?

    I never liked the ending either to be honest. Both superweapons felt too much like star wars for me. I would've loved a desperate push to Kilrah with an assault fleet where you released one of any number of attacks on it as they were gearing up towards earth. I would've loved more ambiguous...
