Re: Surely someone on here cuts their own grass...

No small engines here yet. I hire out the lawn because I'm lazy. But I did start thinking about a generator after Texas shit the -12°F bed.

    Re: Zero footprint

    Yeah, the US$225K does seem a little low. Ultimately of no consequence to us, since the job is not going to be near Baltimore, and the commute would not be good. Just one of those "wow, this would be perfect" discoveries based on the house alone.

    That's kind of why I like suggesting all-in-ones for home/family. People who "aren't computer people" have CPU boxes packed tight with cat hair from the floor, bubble gum in all the front vents, and solid notebooks and folders blocking all airflow on all other sides. Having "the compu...

    The Axis mounted machine guns can't reach outside their main, really, so thinking of a balanced position to put mounted machine guns in the Allied main isn't obvious for me. None of the Axis mounted machine guns point towards a "main spawn area" or even the vehicle spawns, such that the mo...

    I'll gladly disagree with everyone regarding Ozark. Using Jason Bateman for sharp wit without needing to be funny? Laura Linney playing the wife strong enough to do it all without him? Both great choices. But Julia Garner's performance is what makes that show so fun to watch. (Netflix)

    The datacenter our Desert Combat server is hosted in will be performing network-related changes today starting at 8:00pm Thursday, March 4, 2021 EST (1:00am Friday, March 5, 2021 UTC) There is no plan for disruption, but simply the possibility of disruption if things don't go according to plan.

    Yeah, I think "clan war" is going to be a non-starter here, and nothing we need to "try and make work for EA117." So many of our folks are here just randomly, when available, and "just for fun" like HairyRussianDude described. And they aren't looking for, nor needing, s...

    Re: black screen when i join server

    I think the most recent example I saw was when my wife's work shipped her one of those Dell 34" curved Ultrasharp super-wide monitors. 3440x1440 native, and seems like there were a couple "traditional resolutions" that no longer got offered by the video card once connected.

    That still sounds like "my computer maybe can't display 800x600 successfully any more" or similar. What graphics modes your video card can offer or support depends on what capabilities it knows it has through the monitor connection. So indeed, the resolutions offered and supported through ...

    That chosen resolution is of course different for each user, which is why the change has to be customized, and isn't just a "here, it's fixed" kind of change that can be provided. I stand corrected. Bud over at Team-SiMPLE just pointed to someone who recently posted (last year) a fix to t...

    Once you've installed Team-SiMPLE's normal fixed BF1942.EXE (Step 8 in the http://ea117.com/dcinstall instructions), the graphic resolutions offered inside the game should be "exactly the graphic resolutions offered by your video card." Rather than the fixed hard-coded list of 800x600, 102...

    The other gate we'll need to pass though is having the installer that we can actually de-compile or compile here. Since there won't be any "EA117 said to download this" for which EA117 doesn't have definitive knowledge and access to what's in the installer. We would also be looking at how...

    Yeah, we loitered a bit too long around the crash site gate, and I was sure there was no way you were going to make it all the way in.

    That was crazy. Wish that I had had the Bandicam running on that one. DogMA had to dive at the pole with only a literal second to spare.
