  • I am not 100% sure what the Kerbal Space Program is exactly, assuming some kind of simulator. Back in early 90's, I had to make a compiled program in Pascal for an exam in college. I created a gravity simulator in CGA graphics. The user could enter number of bodies, then detail mass, position, and speed. The simulation was…
  • Last month, I was goated into a political topic in chat, it was about my home state, and I said something, when read without context, by itself, sounds awful. I should have just ignored the topic. I am not on the game 24/7 and wasn't aware of the ban at all, until I read an email 2 days later. It stated I was banned for 24…
  • Thanks, I will make the adjustment now. :+1: As for Mr. @blargskull I got him 2 cup on his way off to work. Poor baby had to tough it out with 7/11 coffee. :lol:
  • Wendy is out having fun with her nephew at present. I believe she recommended using the Foundry, prior to the 2019 shutdown, to make housing and sell custom Foundry items in the zen store. I know Cryptic saved us a ton of money between 2013 to present. Wendy is playing with her doll houses on Black Desert and keeps buying…
  • Right on time with that zen. BTW people here won't get your joke about the kidneys unless I tell them how you swill down tons of RC Cola. What is your normal consumption? Are you down to just one bottle a day yet? :lol: Since you are a non-smoker you can lose a lung but not both. See you for morning coffee in about an…
  • @mentinmindmaker now your comment got me thinking about my Tron game on the shelf, I think I will install it again and give it a play through for old time sake. The old Tron 2.0 (2004) is still tons better than the movie sequel Tron: Legacy (2010). Greetings Programs!
  • I am certainly no expert on this video game's lore, but anyone can search up lore from various books and they will conflict. The reason is the same issue as Star Trek or any other work of fiction. Any author can approach the IP holder (WoC in this case) and ask permission to write up a book. Many books written with…
  • Yes more than likely scriondar hit 3 and not 2, simple typo. In some cases, I have to look hard at the date, NA writes month/day/year and EU writes day/month/year -- which makes it easier to sort numerically but it throws me for a loop sometimes. The EU also swap decimals for commas in number formats such as; 2.300,96 =…
  • As they say in the song, No problems only solutions. However the current trend over the past 6 months has been +1.28 more days per day with an average exponential increase of 0.07 over a six month period. Unless there is a significant change, I would expect this time next year, the average will be +1.42 per day. Please…
  • Appears to be on the projected path for now. Thank you for posting your data.
  • I think you just buy the book from Wizards of the Coast for 50 bucks. Isn't that the point? Interesting bear-owl they had in the video.
  • @blargskull Only the evil residence. :lol: Yes. This and several other online games I monitor have "died" many times according to their users in their respective forums. Some random user pops up and states the population is low and ergo people are leaving. They never bother to check other possibilities or bother to mention…
  • If you take the highest peak for a fiscal year as @blargskull is doing, and call it 100%. Then the months break down like this; 3,125 - 87% 2,809 - 78% 3,167 - 88% 3,213 - 89% 3,025 - 84% 2,696 - 75% 2,674 - 74% 2,719 - 76% 3,600 - 100% 3,539 - 98% 2,402 - 67% 2,266 - 63% Which doesn't look too bad, but Winter is Coming,…
  • Adjusted the sheet, seems the value was a 15 day increase over a period of 10 day +1.5 and I am optimistic this will fall back to the +0.8 average after New Years. Mr. @blargskull your 10 zen posted on the 26th of February should arrive within a week. Well before your prediction of Christmas.
  • I would give it some time, currently EST is 7:15 AM, out in California (where Cryptic lives) it is still 4:15 AM. I would check back in 5 hours maybe?
  • Okay I will leave all the thread derailing up to you. Meanwhile it would appear no major adjustments are yet needed to the current forecast. According to both Fritz and Plastic they got zen on the 5th and 6th posted on February 18th. Seems on schedule.
  • PWE - Parent Company for Cryptic Studios It takes quite a bit for PWE to close any of their games, Chinese based MMOs such as these, are residual income to them. They have a motion picture studio for real revenues. I assume this is not an issue with the parent company. If PWE has to step in, it would be to liquidate or…
  • It is almost as if, someone high up at Cryptic believes AD sinks would be "bad for business". They need them in there, to remove the backlog, but also this makes paid players buy up Zen to get AD faster for the items they put in as AD sinks. The premium AD items need to be made account bound so they cannot be sold back to…
  • @"rockster#6227" I believe there was very few sites and issues with the IdentTrust issue over the past few days. Most browsers use https the "S" is secure. If you go to any http the browser will say there is no encryption meaning the data between the browser can be seen as plain text while in transit. If you try to force…
  • XP was 2001 release, 20 years ago, they ended support for it in 2009 when I felt it had reached it's peak with Window XP SP3. It deserved better than an early grave. I am unaware of any issues with old tech connecting, the browser will be outdated. There are browsers offering backwards compatibility to 32 bit OS. They did…
  • I agree, there simply cannot be anyone waiting for zen beyond what we see here (Feb. 15th) posted above. The only possible way to have AD sitting in the exchange from a year ago, would be to have posted it below the 750:1 ratio. There might be someone out there sitting on millions posted at 749:1 or less, thinking they…
  • @"auron#6793" You can continue to use Windows 10 until 2023 (I think) and beyond, it will just no longer receive the updates. That will give you plenty of room to explore your options. The only games I have issues with running, are the ones with "Anti Cheat", but good news is Easy Anti Cheat is making a Linux version. That…
  • I wasn't aware they did such a thing? I think I would have noticed something by now. I think I started my account about 5 years ago.
  • @"auron#6793" Short answer: Wendy has returned to using Windows 10 these days. While I am sticking with the Ubuntu family, mine is a custom build based on Lubuntu. Lengthy dissertation: Back when Microsoft was selling Vista, I was still enjoying XP and 64 bit OS wasn't in full swing yet. I disagreed with some changes made…
  • My sheet has the 12th at the 22nd, so I will call it close enough for now. Let's see what reports we get in the time ahead, I will leave the sheet alone for now and check back on this thread as more reports arrive. Maybe it isn't important, but his posting in that manner proves you don't get your zen any faster for smaller…
  • If they have "in house support" at all, you can bet they staff it with unpaid interns. The job of help desk is bottom of the barrel at any company. I remember over a decade ago, someone taking a job for Microsoft, I saw the same person a year later and they told me it was an internship. It didn't go anywhere. As for…
  • oh?? Well you see that is where you are wrong. If I ever make game, you will be perma-banned before alpha testing. You should feel honored by being the only gamer who has been perma-banned from a game before it existed. In fact, should I ever go crazy and build such a game, I will grant you the title, Banned Before His…
  • @"theelusiveone#4954" I made the correction, between yours and gildriador is 4 day increase over 5 days time between posts, this drops the increase for the period to +0.8. Should that keep up, the exchange will be back to the normal increase we saw prior to the freeze. I only wish I could tell you the growth is going into…
  • Yes. I live in a small city (population 35 K to 38 K) and I find functional PCs and monitors in the roadside garbage. Why? Most will be old or have some minor defect. Wendy told me to stop bringing home all the strays I find. :smile: I do have a small stack of mini towers and desktops in one corner of the room. Most are…
