  1. The game's max res is 1600x1200. For higher resolutions you need to edit C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2\TSData\Res\Config\Graphics Rules.sgr and set maxResWidth and maxResHeight to your display's native width and height
  2. 12 volt DC output wall wart power adapter > hack on a fan plug > done. Done this many times myself.
  3. *sigh* this again. There are so many factors involved no one can say for certain which is better long term. Factors most people don't even know about such as spinup spindown cycles being far harder on hard drives than leaving them spinning all the time, heat shock from the systems being warm and then cold slowly cracking solder joints, electromigration slowly wearing away at the joints between every single semiconductor junction in every chip in the system, people having no idea if tin whiskers grow more quickly with systems on or off, and so many more itll make your head spin if you ever really delve into the physics of it. I personally leave all my systems I use daily on 24/7 but I built them for power efficiency... and turn off the ones I dont use as often.
  4. Wow. I just finally got done downloading it (I have incredibly bad slow internet) and this is insanely good. This is what it should have been like from the start. thank you!
  5. YAY! he wrote back with a link to all the stuff in the CD except the PDF version of the book (which I dont want anyway)! Hooray for awesome people! Now just to wait for the book to arrive.
  6. Ooh more (intentional) misinterpretation and accusatory and inflammatory remarks! Without punctuation, no less! Lesee here, where to start? It has been documented many times by many people that java, the only language I have said is poor in this regard, is. I then go on to agree with a poster that good programming practices make the difference between what another poster said was faster, C versus C++ (and several other ones, implied). It has been shown by now that if something said here can be misinterpreted you will do such. Pot and kettle, anyone?
  7. Exactly! I think several people here are intentionally or unintentionally misinterpreting my posts.
  8. Exactly! thanks for proving my point for me. I have been "driving" (using) software since the 80s. I can tell an efficient program from an inefficient one. I also have been a hardware tech since that time too. After enough time anyone with enough smarts can tell a good programming language from a bad one by sheer experience with using programs made from them. And thus your point is invalidated by your own arguments. Thanks. Done feeding the troll now. You've proven yourself yet again to be talking nothing.
  9. Sure, I'll feed the troll. You don't have to know how to build cars to know when you are driving a crappy one.
  10. way too true. You should try the demo of the game, it actually has one.
  11. the physics of the vehicles is a little whacko, so if you run into something like a curb youre likely to make the combine jump up in the air and half-flip, stuff like that.... if your output chute hits a grain wagon or such it can make both vehicles kinda V up really funny... but other then weirdness like that it works great for farming equipment like combines, tractors, grain wagons.
  12. Says who? Before I had to sell it I had a phenom II x6 with 16GB DDR3 and I ran it low and out of ram quite often. It truly depends on what you are doing with the system, and even "just" multi-gaming can drag 32GB down. (some call it multiboxing)
  13. I did. I didn't see bale handling being broken. Nobody seemed to talk about it when I read reviews of it. It's still enjoyable, just not worth this much as a partly broken game. I'm going the autostacker route now too.
  14. because I thoroughly enjoyed operating equipment on the farm I helped with when I was young, and I am now unable to do so in person. Why else?
