  1. Here's an update, mom suggested delaying the trip to next week as finances are a bit constrained this week. so i haven't gone yet, but i really gotta stress to her that it's the final weekend next week.

    if i don't go by the end of next week, the trip's sunk.

    Hotel costs ~$250-300 (for 3 days), Fast Lane Plus is ~$280 (if the park is busy af)

    not to mention ~$150 in fuel, it's challenging.

  2. Hi guys, on wednesday i'm finally taking a vacation to Sandusky, Ohio.

    My goal there is to visit Cedar Point and ride every single rollercoaster (that is operating) in this amusement park.

    I will get to ride some seriously insane (and demonic) rollercoasters, like Millennium Force, among other spectacular-looking coasters. i can't wait to puke my guts out, its gonna be awesome!

    Plan breakdown:

    Wednesday Evening: Drive the 7 hour long journey to Sandusky and rest overnight.

    Thursday Evening: Cedar Point Day 1

    Friday: Cedar Point Day 2

    Saturday, anything else i want to do while out west before coming back home by midnight.

    I wanted to do this for at least 8 years, so yeah... :P i may or may not be on the server during this time, but man... i'll try to send pics! - but i hope the forecast stays the way it is now.

    UPDATE: Cancelled, the reason is because my entire household got COVID-19.

    so this trip is postponed until spring next year. i'm so pissed...

    any more news from Daniel ?

    Hey there, here's an update.

    His infection was MRSA, which is an antibiotic resistant disease. it was caused by a sore on his foot that didn't heal right since he is a diabetic. but fortunately he has survived sepsis and has returned home. we are keeping a close eye on him.

    as he may be terminally ill, the odds of him surviving another year is not so great as he has a pancreatic mass that appears to be growing. so we'll be doing everything we can to keep him comfortable. there is also a chance that he may get another septic infection at some point.

    i have no idea how things will turn out. but i hope for the best.

  4. Hey everyone, things aren't going so well right now. My step dad is admitted to the hospital with SEPSIS.

    his blood pressure has tanked lately and my mom is with him. he is likely to die.

     

    i'm hoping for the best, but am being prepared for the worst. i just got back home from my (real) dad's house and am right now on standby.

     

    i won't be on ET for some time, things are way too crazy right now. but i always think about you guys, just know i will return. - please pray for us.

  5. All versions of Windows after Windows 7 are just UTTER GARBAGE (Except Windows 8.1). i'm still holding out on Windows 7, and i managed to hack the updates to get ESU until next January.

    but as long as i am still using this toshiba laptop, it's sticking to Windows 7.

    Windows 10 and 11 will have shit performance on ET because the OS is made to run modern programs, ET was made for Windows NT4/98/ME/2000/XP so obviously it won't run that well on the current Windows versions so you'd probably be better off with ET Legacy.

    if you are dedicated with vanilla et, you can still get better performance by installing it into "C:\Games\WolfET" instead of the default directories, no "Run as administrator" necessary! also make sure your ET is patched to 2.60b with the Masterlist patch. you can get a pre-patched 2.60b ET here: https://www.splashdamage.com/games/wolfenstein-enemy-territory/

    and the masterlist patch here:

    but there isn't much you can do with improving vanilla performance, it's just the way it is.

    It's a Toshiba pappy...
    It will carry you to the grave. :-)

    you wish, lol. - this laptop is literally 10½ years old now, with heavy use throughout its life. my mom recently retired her toshiba (which is identical to mine) and i took the shell from it because my shell finally fell apart completely. i also JB-Welded some screw posts back onto the shell and hot-glued the power jack harness to the shell to keep it from wiggling around. call me insane but i can't just buy the type of new laptop computer that i'm looking for easily because of the goddamn supply shortages and lack of funding to do so due to increasing expenses.

    so i gotta do what i gotta do to get this thing through another year. :P

    I slowed down playing several months ago, and I would hop on here and there.  However, my Intel SSD (boot drive) died a few weeks ago, and with it went all of my ET installation, etc.  I've just been lazy about re-installing ET.

    I'm pretty much lazy about everything.  haha.  I'll try to jump on again.

    damn, computer problems plaguing you?

    i got some of that myself as well, such as my laptop's transformer brick is cracking apart. i now have a nice shock hazard.

    This laptop's days are numbered, and i don't know when it'll catastrophically fail, but it is inevitable.
