I am thinking of buying HL2 and GMOD 13, are they worth it?

Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.

Buy it, you won't regret it smile.gif

*Note: For Garry's Mod you do need a few other games, such as Counter-Strike and things like that, as it uses the models from those games in some parts.

If you're considering getting Half-Life 2 then definitely get The Orange Box, it will be dirt cheap this summer sale and includes HL2, HL2 EP1, HL2 EP2, Portal, TF2 Beta and if you play TF2 (which I know you do) you will acquire I hat called the Proof of Purchase.

Question:What happened to all the landmark post threads? They were all the rage back in the day, as soon as you hit 1000 5000 10000 posts etc you'd make a topic in the general chat section, why does no one do it any-more?

Like these?

http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=563897

http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=563150

Those were pretty recent.

Didn't even see those, guess before people just used to label them more clearly, i just looked and there's definitely not as many as there used to be though...

yeah a lot of people put titles like "so my dog just had sex with my cat and now we have puppens"
or something like that, but not that. Feel free to use that one but I will detest you forever because that is MINE

and if it isn't a fake title like that it is something like GTA-Kings "the number 7" or something random, not many put "my 6000th post" anymore, some still do, but it isn't that common now.

Yeah, the quote "my 6,000 post" is getting lamer. Should find something very unique at the same time funny to better capture some readers. I remember when @The Pizza Delivery Guy had his milestone topic named "Barack Obama is assassinated" before it was renamed by @Girish. Thought it was for real.

if it isnt 75% dont do it, wait for it to go 75%
it changes every day or 2 days so odds are it will go 75% (or more) on one of these periods

it will be 75% sometime in the next few days
wait for it to go to that
unless it gets to the last day

i am quoting TB rules here and he has seen many a steam sale
I personally go for 66% minimum not 75% but... i never go for a game cos it is cheap and i think why not, i only get games i will definitely play, so i only get like 1 or 2 games a sale, 3 if i buy for someone else wink.gif
many people buy games in these sales then think "why the f*ck did i get that" and it sits there, unplayed, unloved

If I'm standing on the opposite side of the north magnetic pole, which is on the other side of the planet (possibly somewhere in the ocean, but it doesn't matter), what will a compass indicate?

The compass won't work properly, it'll most likely just float around in different directions. That's if we're talking a quality compass.

In general, a compass is more reliable closer to the equator/further from the poles.

That's what I thought would happen, if you are exactly on the opposite side of the magnetic pole, the distance to it is basically equal in two directions.

Okay... I'm looking for a game. It was one of my first games I've ever played. I'm not really sure what is all about but I'll try to explain. I think it was a demo or something.
Anyway, it's a car game, not really sure is it a racing game or not. Anyway there are cars included.  tounge.gif   You can demolish buildings in this game with different kind of weapons shot from the car.  whatsthat.gif    I remember there were rockets too. Ammunition was lying all accros the city, there are people too,but of course you can't kill them...they just change the spot when you try. Police can chase you too....even though that part is completely blank to me. Oh...and there was some good background rock-ish music and occasional word or two from a radio station.  biggrin.gif    Okay...I know this is stupid but it can't hurt.

Are you talking about Rollcage?



Fantastic game.

Holy crap!

I was going to ask here if someone knows how this game was called, this was the first game I've ever played, fantastic!

Thank you AceKingston, you saved me from hours of searching!

Well, since the magnetic south pole isn't the exact opposite of the magnetic north pole, your compass will point away from the magnetic south pole.

If you were on the magnetic south pole, your compass would spin around, or if you're perfectly on it, it would stay still.

Copy and paste eveything after the '=' in a YouTube video link and use the code below for example:

CODE

This is what the result should be!

There should be an application which you can use to actually transfer your contacts and a bunch of other stuff such as Music, Photos etc. But if there isn't an option like that have you considered looking into this ? I remember I used this once and it worked very well.

You should be able to export your contacts to your SD card via the Contacts app. Afterwards you just import your contacts on your Samsung.

And that's it.

If anyone has GTA IV PC version, can you upload the QUB3D theme?
I would like to listen to it, I did find a video, but it's been removed.
