Soo, curious to see what ppl will say.
Wanna do a 3D animation but dunno what i want to animate, soooo what would you guys like to see animated (only know humanoid movements atm)
Soo~ decided to commit to getting white led strips to put in my pc case so it would add to the "clean" asthetics it has. Currently waiting for it to arrive and will probs post an image when i put them in.
Next meaningful upgrade is gonna be gpu, currently at a r9 290x or 280x can't recall which one. And it aint holdin up as well ( tbf it went through the leaking damage of my AIO last year) so it held up long enough
So i posted this a year back, recently shared it with a discord server as one of the members has been showing their wallpaper backgrounds.
And someone came across it and was saying it is lewd....
I would much appreciate to see what others opinions on it is. As to me this is just a cool stylisation of Zero two
So firstly, if you are an amazon employee this isnt aimed at all of you,
But come one if you are working in customer service, Especially when dealing with an issue regarding the customers money (refund) don't Bs, don't lie, don't give them false hope.
As i had an issue with my prime (unactive for a yr now) and it randomly decided to renew itself. How do i find out? email, SMS, notification from amazon. Nope, throughy bloody online banking when i noticed i was down cash i had....
Contacted support and requested a full, refund not the partial one as this charge had not input from my side, was lead down a 20minute chat saying i'll have the full refund, along with me multiple times wanting them to confirm the amount and an email with the amount owed, never got the email,
Today i decided to enquire about the thing to be told only the partial payment was being refunded, explained to them what i was meant to be owed and has now been confirmed that the remainder should arrive in my account in the next week.
I am not one to put complaints against ppl unless it regards my own money ( does not include stupid purchases i have made :/ )
But you don't lie to a customer about the many they are wanting to be returned especially when it is for a valid reason...
and on another note, don't BS me when it comes to cash as its one thing i keep close tabs on due to Uni for the time being
Turns out i am still Alive!
Kinda let this fall to the back burner some how, so how people doing n All?
Wanna see how ppl doing coming up sooo soon to christmas
I swear to god looking at second hand things to buy annoys me.
a). Do not use image filters
Like come on any image filter will flag a buyer off you post, because it looks like your hiding something.
b). Don't mark your shit as free when its not.
If you put the free tag on your product sell PLEASE include at the start ideally [Not free open to Offers] *Product Name* as the amount of times i ignore Free Items on the second hand list is outrageous due to people then requesting such price for it.
c). clean you shit,
you want it to be appealing. Bring the buyer in by making it look well cared for.
d). Mark any damage or blemish.
Fully photo all damages or scratches and other shiz as people will complain when it comes in the condition they didn't want it to be.
e). Last but not least detailed photos, the more you show detailed photos of the item the more it looks geniune and not a scam, and the more it shows you care about the customer by having said photos with it.
ITS NOT FLUFFING HARD TO DO THIS LIKE COME ON PPL
@Windows7ge Nah didn't power on without the cpu, thing is the capacitors on the board are getting charged. I'll need to get a multimeter to it tomorrow and check how far the power is possibly getting.
So i have a Gigabyte board here and its no longer posting when i press the power button on. I have tried removing all extras from the mobo bar the chip to see if it would post and still no response even when shorting the two pins, i was wondering if their is another way to power the board or is this a lost cause? I'll update the type of board when i figure it out, the pc its in is pretty old. Thanks for any feedback or advice in advance
Gonna sound real stupid but the cooler master support page kinda sucks....
So just to update you guys, contacted Cooler Master they are saying they maybe able to file a damage claim to replace the cooler and Gpu problem is i require the reciepts (cooler isnt the problem) but the gpu is ....
@RollinLower u would if i had the cash, and that not me sayin oh a couple quid off im dirt broke atm. @martward I ended up contacting amazon first, sadly they cant do a replacement as the item is no longer sold on their site... But are able to do a refund... Gonna be contacting Cooler master later in the day as i have an interview to get ready for but i'll keep ppl updated on the subject. Thanks
Soo, i just found out after 6months of using a cooler master AIO that is has been slowly leaking onto my GPU, which has caused it to act up in the past few months when i think back on it. I only just found this out now and due to not having a spare cpu cooler available i am unable to proceed working on this machine without fear of damaging it more. Should i contact Cooler master about this? amazon as they sold it to more or what, because atm i have 2 weeks left of computer extensive work and well no personal computer to use.... Images below of damage;
Soooo i have been browsing the facebook market again.....
Firstly their are some ppl in to kinky shiz as holy Fuck is their a lot of those things being sold in my area.
Secondly onto Electronics, Why do people not clean what they are selling...... UGH!!!
YOU may not have kept it in good looking condition but atleast make the possible buyer think you have :/
like is it that hard to take a cloth or vacuum to it to clean of the dust and make it look presentable.
i know i dont clean my pc often on the inside but dont have dust build up visible in the selling photo, it will and most likely has drove people away from your ad due to it.
ugh i should stop lookin through fb.
Ahhhhhhhh I neeed to starty uni work and im 5 weeks already in.....
Time for some late nights :/
Soo this is being done more as an update than a topic post,
Anyway firstly who all played the Anthem open or Vip demo?
Secondly your opinions?
Finally my opinion
(DONT READ PAST IF YOU DONT LIKE AN SHORT ESSAY OF WRITING)
So let me start with the positives;
This was played on xbox one 1st gen
So firstly the game handled greatly when their wasn't server errors and issues happening. The combat in the game is well done and flushed out to an extent. The flying while hard to figure out and dissorientating at first. Proved to be very responsive and clean. The Javalins ( tried all bar the storm) are enjoyable the ranger you can play aggressive of play supportive at times depending on your loadout.
The collasous is a great finisher or follow up javelin for combing or even just leaving a trail of knocked over grunts for fun.
The interceptor (which i loved) basically allowed you to mash the melee button constantly without no cooldown while looking cool doing so.
The Enemies where ranged in sense of play style against them and how to counter.
HUD and layout of the menus where done well but could be improved (talk about that later)
So while playing it the positives is i never got annoyed with the control bar trying to figure out how to fly at first. You could easily do majority of your things from the get go, and when the servers where not an issue getting a squad together worked smoothly.
Now the negatives
Where is the normal melee or stun button, as if you dont play interceptor your melee ability is on a cooldown (short one) but one none the less. They do pretty high damage tbf but still even having a melee which had them stun the enemy by pushing them or knocking them over would be good.
The menus are good but slightly confusing when it comes to editing your javelins loadout. Mainly the weapons tab and main weapon tab ???
Finally and sadly a game killer for me if it is a repeating pattern. The combat against mini bosses. So during one if the missions given in the demo you face a spider tank at the end of it. During you fight with the spider tank additional enemies spawn (normal) what isnt normal is that they spawn constantly. Like it isnt at intervals of the mini boss' health which is a bullet sponge depending on difficulty your on along with it guaranteed stun attack which affected the ranger and interceptor the most. Collasous you raid shield to cancel the stun lock.
Along with that their was fights that dragged out too long, could have been level dependant as i didn't come across it as much later in plays
But sorry if anthem has any more of those mini boss situations where you have adds spawning 24/7 while damaging the boss it will kill the game for me as it goes from being fun to difficult to slightly annoying then ending at frustrating and worthless.
As when i finished these fights you didnt feel rewarded as much as you thought you would have with the time and frustration that went into that part.
Do i think anthem will be a positive game? possibly, the game has potential, the play style and combat is enjoyable along with the customisation of the javelins, end game is a different story, i personally like having something to rotate to for end game and with the current state of Destiny 2 i dont ever have nothing to do on it due to the trumphs book, collections or weekly milestones, along with it lore.
Anthem will be slightly less intensive than destiny in this regards with 3 strongholds for the endgame along with cataclysm world events. (To me feel like rotating special world events, possibly) and just the gear system.
Would i buy it? simply put it no, mainly due to money restrictions but also the fact that it feels heavily co op based and i would only he interested in the story Bioware has given it than the grinding aspect.
Anyway if you read this far, you must be bored and you might aswell share your opinion on the matter if you have played it and feel free to counter some arguements i had about the game.

Well, it would be great if they opened the world up completely in the full version.
I didn't have a chance to fight bosses because I mostly roamed around thanks to the server issues but, yeah, it does sound pretty annoying.
Maybe you are supposed to be able to just wipe out all the smaller guys? Unless this was a really early mission boss.
Sooo some of you guys may find this mean or rude of me other may agree.
I have recently seen an incline in people becoming vegan, vegetarian and of different gender identities.
These are fine by me you do you be what you want and feel like what you want I aint gonna stop you but what really aggitates me is the ones among those religions, gender, or lifestye that feel the need to force you to either know that they are this every second they got or force you to be one of them.
So im gonna be straight here, you can be, do or follow what ever the fuck you want and i will stand by ya only if ya dont try to force it on me or make it feel like my life decisions aren't right. At that point you can fck off and any aggro given by me to you isnt because of what you do its because of your attitude and personality about it....
Had to get that out there because one of the things that have been building up.
So i enjoy my fair share or open world games, rpgs etc. And in a few of them i loved the trading, being able to go hey here i have what your looking for this is the price but willing to negotiate,
I loved trading in many games two i loved the most was Neverwinter and Warframe.
As i would offer assistance to people looking for items, tell them i'll try and source one but at such a handling fee.
So i would get the item be like hey i got this for this much here is your offer including handling fee. And many approved of that or comprimising on my price, gettinf my stock up while getting some sold. That included going hey i can go as low as this but you need to throw in something extra like a item or bp.
I'm sayin this because through out trading in those games i always made sure to keep contact with whos interested now bs people and be fair.
Yet with the issue im having on ebay thats gonna be hard as my bs raidar is goin off and telling me somethings not right with this.
Soo to make this more clear, the rants to do with my experiance on multiple places for buying and selling. These include Ebay, LTT classified thread and Facebook/ Direct messeging. Buying: So as a buyer their are things expected of ya, being able to purchase the product, be intrested in the product and be able to communicate with the seller if needed. As being a buyer on Ebay three times now (positive n Negative) and a buyer here on the LTT forums i tend to be understanding, Ebay- first purchase was two monitors going for £55 total, a steal right? Well it was a complicated one. It never arrived the currior never arrived at our door yet it was signed for? I went around my estate and to the area that a GPS would take you to if following it asking if they have recieved a large package sent to this address. Sadly no. Contacted the Seller who said he will contact the currior on this and try to find out. Done what he could so just told me to request the refund and all that would happen is i pay the return fee £12.50 total (could be how he got money without sending an actual package who knows) but lo and behold the same delivery company is seen coming bacl into my estate and stopping infront of one of the houses a retrieving packages. So this turned out negative as this could have been a fault on the delivery service, lies from neaghbours or just a none existant package. Purchase other products on ebay (wifi card and GPU) both came with no issue bar the GPU having a coil whine under load (never mentioned in listing). LTT Forum: So cant say much here dealt with the same person each time who was willing enough to low prices down if reasonable and would keep me up to date on the status of the items along with being a good seller and seeing if they had any other products i would be interested in. All came in good condition and no hassle what so ever bar name of reciever due to goin to a uni accomodation that wont give parcels to a sibling if it not addressed to them. Selling: I have sold two thing that required postage & packaging One being a halloween costume and the other being a Ps2 bundle. Halloween costume was odd it got bought, sent and recieved without a single word from the buyer. Bear in mind this is with me informing them on whem it would be posted, and when it was posted so they could expect it soon. Now the PS2 how ever is a whole different story, bought, sent and recieved with contact to the buyer. Answering queries and when they should recieve it. Item was posted on ebay with everything checked. Controller, Buzzers, Mic, games, eye toy and console. Listed with what all was working. (Bar a game that i dunno why i listed) Got contacted by the buyer that the product was recieved and that some of the games where not reading. I responded saying that it could be a problem with the reader lense and suggested cleaning the lense or doing a reset of the disc reader lense with a link to a guide. (Console never had this done before so could have resolved the read disc error) Got back saying they didnt want to make it worse (assuming they never opened the console or cleaned the lense) and requested a refund. So before i decided to request the refund i asked for the info of all the discs that where not reading, image of which one are reading and proof. Got a response saying that one set of the buzzers aren't working along with the discs. And later then got a response saying what discs where not working, that a set of buzzers aint working, a usb isnt working and that i had the eye toy pluged into the none working usb port (no photos had any additions plugged in during the listing) and questioned why a guitar hero mic was in it and not a kareoke mic that i had listed (was added at a later date with no cost increase) but thought due to it being a guitar hero mic they thought thatw as the fault with it. Now i could he wrong and the console deteriorated during the original post and the purchase of the item. So it felt off as the refund request came in saying it was not working as hoped and discs not reading or taking long loading times. Then came the response of oh this is not working and then the list of faults along with a fault that i never had with the console since it use and that was the disc tray getting stuck. I have had many consoles, xbox 1(like the first one) the PS2 , xbox 360 and the xbox one. Ony the 360 was the one with disc tray issues. So ya, currently not havin positive effects with ebay. Anyway if i get it returned and the device isnt working as it left, addditions have been changed or games been swapped out.
Sooo atm i'm kinda pissed off. A PS2 that was in working condition upon being posted was purchased on ebay, sent the item along with the games, buzzers, controller and 16GB memory cards (2x 8GB)
I have recieved a refund on it as supposedly nothing is working. Some Games, eye toy, mic (an third party one) along with the console supposedly not reading.
Started with, games aren't being read. I asked them about the delay on tue disc read n error.
I responded asking for more detail as i would like to resovle it without it having to be returned. They came back saying one of the buzzers isnt working and that the USB ports are not working either along with the tray now getting stuck.
Atm it annoys me as for all the years i have had the one thing that began to fail was the second controller (wasnt sent)
Sooo kinda annoyed.....

It was sold for a total of £47.50 packaging costed more that i had down but didnt bring up the additional cost it created. So they didnt have that to deal with.
Along with that the console got sold with 8 Games,
A ps2 controller with no grip on the sticks and the power light didnt show up but worked as intended.
Along with two sets of what i had down as fully working (Tested before posting on ebay) a Microphone, Eye Toy and 2x 8GB of Memory.
So they got a lot for £40
And then contacts ebay because i requested the videos they whete syaing the have of it being faulty to be put on a GDrive folder and a link sent to me for revewing.
@firelighter487 & @Cyberspirit, sadly due to this when i get the console back all getting tested. Recorded etc and the thing will be relisted for at a higher price. Because im pretty sure a faulty set of Buzz controllers are being sent back in replace of ones that i had working.
On top of that they said i jad the eye toy plugged into a usb port that wasnt working.... THE EYE TOY was never plugged in on any of the images in the listing so dunno where they got that from.
I'm definightly contacting ebay if the console comes back in worse state than it was sent in and i would like it being resovled in the fact that i get compensated for the price of the packaging wasted and the product itself.
@RejZoR i wouldnt judge them by a single game... As much as i dislike Activision now, I enjoyed all the games the released in the COD franchise from COD4 - MW3 Black ops II and Ghost wasnt bad but they where not ultimately in my high graces. And then you have their Futursitic games that just where not good in my opinion. People change, Games Change, companies change etc. Halo 1 yes had A lot of copy paste levels where assets where reused somewhere else. The mission with the multiple bridges many plays held that one with pain as it felt the most repetitive. Now going on about the ship... Have you ever been on a ship, plane or building that uses the same layout and style the whole way through? I would assume a Frigate would follow the same lead so having copy hallways broken up by unique rooms (Cantiene, Power Generator, control center etc.
@ZacoAttaco I understand what you getting at with the progress of D1 going away but at the same time it wasnt as if you became nothing. Your Guardian lost his/her light the classic Tower was destoryed, anything you had gone, your guardian recovering the light from a fragment of the traveller needed to re train his hand in it once again while coming to learn new abilities not known before. While it did annoy my you lost your progress and all they Bungie took the effort to pay tribute to the OG players with the starting screen showing your achievements of D1 while also making sutble hints at the start of the campaign "Ah Saladins Young Pup" for becoming a Iron lord in the last dlc or he would have said "King Slayer" for if you only got to killing Oryx etc. ------ Anyway im glad Bungie now has full control of Destiny but that doesnt mean Microtransactions and shit will go away they will stay and may come more known to be able to fund the loss of money that was lent via activision (Possibly) or they will be less in your face and we see more content, priper stories and more end game activities. Some small stories or additions could end up being free as a thank you (like small stories, finding something or recovering a lost weapon from the old tower) Sooo it can go either way but i choose the positive as bungie has been a company that cared for the players even if it aint the same team that done halo.
