Dec 21, 2013"Fighting the crown won't get you no where," Ryan grumbled as he now finished his plate, and pushed it closer to the Inn keeper. He stood up, and slowly slinked away from the bar with a sigh. "I'm just a poor man. The crown is non of my worries," ryan stated as he now made way to go to his room. "A crown is just a crown. A crown is one man. If all that stands is one man, and the people follow him. Then there is nothing you can do. They want to be lead. If a random group of, god help me, freedom fighters decides to fight the crown, then they just don't see what they are facing. This is no fairy tale, lad. One man can not take down an army when it's a thousand to one."Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Dec 21, 2013Ryan simply continued to eat his bread and wedge of cheese as he listened to the young man only a small distance away talk openly about his cause. The disguised vagabond slowly tore a peace of bread from his loaf and combined it with a bit of his cheese before speaking up, keeping his tone as rustic as he had portrayed himself to be. “Don't sell yourself so high kid,” he weazed in a dreary and tired manner, “The buckets storming this town right now are only watchmen. Volunteers, who are not part of an actual military power. They would only know your face if you were a royal himself.” The vagabond then dipped a stale piece of his bread into the water to soften it a bit. “And your better off keeping quiet about a fight. Some people like things the way they are. They get crabby. And like a crab, they want to pick a fight.”Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
He pulled his hand from his glass to look at the sliver of bread before eating it.
(Holy crap yall have been busy.)
Dec 19, 2013The vegabond sat down at the bar leading of the Inn keeper and waved him over with a leather gloved hand. For those who were observant the glove he wore did not match the attire he wore at all. While they were worn, and probably seen better days, they were in far better shape than the actual robes that had draped Ryan's form. The Inn keeper raised a brow and approached the man.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
“What can I do for you sir,” the inn keeper asked, while pulling out a book from under the shelf.
“Now...” Ryan began in a very well done faux rustic tone. He'd smack his lips for a bit, and continue on tilting his head a bit to gesture to himself. And the handed out a few coins.“I am sure you may have already realized this... mate. But I am a tad down on mah luck. So... if availible, I'd like the lamest room you have... and a loaf of bread with some water.”
The inn keeper nodded, and quietly accepted the payment. He gave him a key to the mentioned room, and a plate with a platter of bread and a cheese wedge, plus a pint of water. The inn keeper than left the man to himself, who now glanced lazily over his shoulder to the group behind himself.
He turned back to his plate, and reached out to grab at the loaf of bread. He paused for a moment, looking down to his gloved hand. His hand stalling just over the piece of bread now as he slowly starts to run everything through his head. A small clicking noise was made with his tongue after he realized a terrible error to his disguise. “Oh grimy... I forgot to remove my gloves and sword,” he thought to himself. “Already noticed, too. But... at least they aren't to sure what's going on...”
Dec 18, 2013Ryan slowly rose to his feet, and promptly skipped off to the nearest vagabond on the street. He looked around for a moment, with water still draining from his clothes. He quickly tossed him a coin, “You didn't see anything, right?”Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
The vegabond caught it, and smiled softly to him. “Why of course I didn't...”
“Good,” the thief chimed in with a smile, tossing him another two, “And I'd like that robe you are wearing.”
Later the same very thief had managed to find himself alone, laying on the side of the curb. When he was sure the guards were clear, he'd pull out a small letter, and read over the rest of the finely written instructions of his current contract. “More then likely you will raise a storm. Drop off will be in the inn. I've already premetively left your payment in the inn under the third floorboard of the second room. I am quite aware of your trustworthyness to deliver the goods, if your reputation is true. The tenant is an aquaintance of mine. Simply tell him you would like lamest room. He will know what you mean.”
Ryan soon smiled, underneath his hood. He crumpled the letter in his fist as another series of guards came storming by, yelling to one another for the head of the thief. Once they were gone, he slowly stumbled to his feet, playing the role of the traveled poor man quite well. He shuffled lightly across the street, and pushed the door to an Inn open. Inside he spot a few people, but didn't seem to quite care at this point. Rather than hesitating, he naturally slipped inside and closed the door behind himself. His robes were battered, and torn. Made mostly of some thick jute material that has seen better days.
Dec 17, 2013A handful of watchmen guards storm the port town, each one of them yelling something of a thief as they shove through the streets. Each one of them shoved citizens carelessly about as they quickly searched the port, and then left to go deeper into the town. “Yield for the watch ye, thief,” one of the guards yelled out. He appears to be more experienced as he looks over the Ally ways, and motioned his men to continue moving. He waited for the guards to finally leave his sight before chasing after them, howling into the air once more. “You can not hide long, you will be rotting in the dungeons soon enough!”Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
A few minutes after they left, a single hand grasped hold of the wooden boards of an empty dock. Another hand came afterwards to help heave a man dressed in black out of the water and onto the port's dock. He coughed for a few moments and rolled onto his back heaving heavily. “Holy crap,” he grunted, sliding an elbow underneath himself to prop himself up. His eyes glanced to the direction they left, and let out a long whistle. “Good thing they didn't see me at least. But, getting out is going to be a tough one. No way to shake a stick side ways to that.”
His eyes now glanced down to a small bag on the side of his belt. “I hope the fence's pay's worth your trouble.”
Dec 17, 2013((What was the request? Also I am willing to downgrade the sword. But it is a short sword. It's only a inch or so away from a typical dagger. If you remember the older Fire Emblems, thieves could use knives as well, which were not all that powerful, but had high critical strike percent.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
But as the background does state. He was originally a guild thief, which means he could possibly be better equipped as most of his equipment is either stolen, or provided. And Silver weapons? They'd be way to heavy to him for convient use. Silver is a pretty heavy weapon.
Also, what would be the best method of me joining the crew right now? I can't seem to get an idea on yalls location.)
Dec 16, 2013(( Statistical weakness? He's a thief. Which should be fairly apparently.Posted in: Forum Roleplaying
Strength: Pretty low. They have never been combat units till they lost the ability to steal in Fire Emblem. Only Gaius the thief had a high STR.
Armor: Also low. His armor as seen in the description is made of leathers and cotton. At most you can expect protection against nicks and blades that make incorrect contact. Meaning a blade that strikes the body, but to much of it has landed, so the armor stopped the brunt of the real damage, while causing some bruising underneath.
Magic: 0. His intelligence gives him the ability to use magic, but only as a spell like ability. Meaning, no attacking spells or ally healing spells.
Resistance: Almost non-existing. He's a thief.
Speed: Highest Attribute.
Dec 16, 2013Ryan OlarisPosted in: Forum Roleplaying
Description: A young and tall black male with dark brown eyes and a lean figure. His hair is braided and cut short so it barely hangs down half his neck. Rather than wearing armor like most adventurer's his clothing is a mixture of cloth and leathers. He wears leather gloves over his forearms that cover's his hands, but leaves the fingers exposed for better control over the goods he claims. His pants are slid underneath his boots with the exposed portion tight, but giving enough give for quick acrobatic movements. He wears a black leather vest, with multiple plates of hard leather guarding his stomach and sides. On his neck is also a hard leather collar hidden underneath a dark green shaw. He carry's his blade on the back of his hips in a ring holster.
Weapon: A very generic Steel Short Sword. It's designed akin to a dagger, great balance and a dangerously sharp point.
Backstory: A rogue-esh man who used to be part of a great guild of thieves. However he left on good terms with the guild to go and see the world, and to possibly pick up some loose and forgotten goods at palaces he might tour, or possibly from crypts of ancient lords, and maybe ruins dedicated to some unknown forces. His adamant nature has gotten him far in this world, and even guaranteed his survival on a number of occasion.
Weakness: He seems to have a lack of general common sense, and can easily be an odd ball on first sight. Ryan is also not known for his skills with a blade longer than a shortsword, and parrying is usually absent without the use of a secondary weapon.
Strengths: While he lacks common sense, he makes up for it with an incredible intelligence and can quickly learn new skills that are not related to combat. He is decent with a short sword, and impressive with a dagger. He often prefers to use a dagger; however, with the late happenings, he resorts to something heavier for personal defense. He is a talented acrobat, capable of doing flips without momentum, swooping along high ground, and even climb at incredible speeds. He is also a master of stealth, when he figures hiding in plain sight is not a good idea.

Dec 9, 2013The mousepad I have came with my mouse. Which the mouse at the time cost about 79$. The one thing I will say is, it does work better than your normal mouse pads. Buuuuut, I would only say use a slightly more expensive pad only if you are using higher quality mouse with a high DPI. Or just use your desk if it's rough and not smooth like mine.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology

Dec 9, 2013Ok... I am not sure how a 1000$ gaming computer is concidered budget.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
My current computer is 1200$, using a processor people would laugh at. This one I have built myself. For those who want to know, it's the Bulldozer Core. FX 8125.
I didn't get it just for gaming, I got it because this computer doubles as a work station for programming and 3D work for college. And that being that, the most expensive part was my second monitor, which is the Yiynova MSPU. The system now would only cost around 800 or so to build. And sad to say, it out performs the build you are using. It won't reach 150FPS on minecraft, but it wasn't expected to. It was expected to tumble a crap ton of polys, and multi-task hard core. (I normally have over 47 tabs open at a time when browsing the net.)
This would actually sell for a little over 2,000,000 in stores. And that is the computer alone.
The build here, and not to insult you, just seems like a waste of money. The i5 Is a brilliant processor. but it's overkill if you call this a budget system. You can still run games with a Pentium if you can find one.
The graphics card mentioned is a little weak. Actually, I think this one was meant as just a desktop card, and not a gaming one. You can probably get away with two 460s[Sic] on the same board, and work well with a pentium, Core duo, or an I3.
Dec 9, 2013They don't really improve mouse accuracy, like fm87 said. It just changes the feel. But even then I don't really notice it much.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
Just turned up my Rocat Kone + to 6000 dpi. And tested both sides of my Roccat Alumic, which is just a plate of metal.
One side feels rougher than the other, but there was absolutely no difference on mouse speed. It's just a matter of how much friction you like I guess.
EDIT Wait... never mind. I notice a difference at 1600 dpi.
I don't know how this works. But Basically control makes it feel like things slow down some. My best guess is one side has more texture than the other. More texture means more stuff for the mouse to see on movement. Even then, this was on a metal mat. Not a cloth.
EDIT two: After messing around for a bit, I have noticed that the DPI feels lower on a control side. But I could only notice it on settings lower than 1800, did not feel like testing every 100 increment I have. Tested on 6000dpi, 1800 dpi, 1600 dpi, and 800. It feels like a lower DPI really. Speed from what I can gather with a normal mouse pad, is just the standard pad.
So... just get a Speed. It's the same as a normal mousepad, and it won't make it feel like a downgrade.
Edit Three: Alright. Last edit. I just got done trying this a bit in battlefield 4. No, I didn't own anyone. No it doesn't improve your Kill to death ratio. And no I am not a pro player with a KOD of 4.0. It's a sad .73 and rising slowly. Anyways. One thing I did notice is that it doesn't improve accuracy. Instead, it's less jitter, and gives you a more controlled movement by limiting the texture your mouse sees. Jitter not being the best word here, unless you are one of those twitchy people when someone comes out of no where, and you are trying to aim at him. The mouse will stay at 1:1, but the speed you get from it depends greatly on the surface you have.
So basic run down.
Accuracy is best defined as a sells gimic in this situation.
The Controlled Surface lowers the speed your mouse gives you under the same speed and movement on a speed surface.
Speed Surface gives you the most out of your mouse, allowing it to fully use it's DPI
If slower movements means greater accuracy, then sure. It improves accuracy.
So... if you have a fixed DPI mouse, and you do a lot of sniping. I guess this will be good for you. But really, you don't need it. And It's not a guarantee it will make you a better player.

Jul 22, 2012Tangletail posted a message on Lawsuit Filed Against Mojang - This Time, For Obscure PatentEither way.. this is by far the most legal thing you can do remotely in america. Just use two of your inaliable rights and protest against them. If anything they can easily be reversed lawsuited for the suspicions of generating possible safety infringement to consumer credentials for suing anyone using their "so called idea" to protect their customers identities and payment informations. After all that is what you can get by bypassing website security.Posted in: News
Not to mention they lack any real products that use their ideas which was what the Patent system was originally generated for. You used to have to have a working model or product for a patent. Now it doesn't seem to be the case.
Jul 22, 2012Tangletail posted a message on Lawsuit Filed Against Mojang - This Time, For Obscure PatentA company so small who has yet to develop anything but a small patent to make money off of, with a small disposition to keep doing such a deplorable act without regards to the bigger picture. Their idea... or what they had called "patent" is just a small but widely generalized idea in which can be used to sue for many other things. There was a program that had prevented illegal access to an electronic device called a FireWall. These firewalls are firmware, yes software, that does a magical thing such as deny roaming access to areas a typical user should not have. Is the developer for these "firewalls" being sued for having an idea before an idea? Fraid not.Posted in: News
It's nice and all that they have an idea, but one that has been done before their time and one they had left to collect dust till they find a chance to bring the legal system into the mix.

Feb 16, 2012Tangletail posted a message on Minecraft Snapshot 12w07b (updated) is Ready For Testing!Adding on to my previous post.Posted in: News
It's just odd to see I can play Left 4 Dead with 60fps at the highest graphics at 13something x something resolution. Which typically eats up four gigs of ram.
But I can only run minecraft at 12-20fps at normal distance with fancy graphics, with advanced opengl on (supposed to speed things up if your drivers support it). Which reserves 256mbs of ram. I even allocated more to it and the fps didn't change. Changing down to Fast graphics does not change it either.
Feb 16, 2012Tangletail posted a message on Minecraft Snapshot 12w07b (updated) is Ready For Testing!Some new bugs I found. When animals are lit on fire by a flint and steel, they just run in place. Possibly fire some how became soild once an entity runs through it?Posted in: News
Things will start randomly running in circles at times.
I think the path finding system needs to get an adjusted steer handler. So far some mobs can still get stuck on buildings.
Animals will not stand up when right clicked. Done empty handed, and with various items in hand. Even attempted to pour water over them to force them to stand up. Instead they simply get out of it and sit back down.
Skeletons seem to want to stay in place after spotting a player and getting in area where they can attack.
Optimizations are still needed, even more now that the limit has been changed. I'm sure instancing has been done already, but maybe cull anything that is not within view of the camera? Or fix chunk updating, I am trying to figure out what could possibly cause over 60 chunk updates at a time.
