  1. We have a slight change to the rules from now on, you cannot vote for yourself. Any votes towards your own submissions will be void. The polls are ordered alphabetically, if your name isn't listed on the poll, but is listed below in this post you're still eligible. There are only 10 voting slots, so votes for everyone else will be posted below. You don't have to use the poll, you can just type and post the person you wish to vote for below. Following the results of this poll, the winner and runners up will be rewarded with the points below. At the end of the 6 week season the user with the most points will be the overall winner of the current season. You can keep track of how well everyone is doing within the first post of this thread. First Place: 3 points Second Place: 2 points Third Place 1 point Good luck everyone.

  2. You will find most staff on here probably didn't replay because they are busy, haven't logged on or you haven't given them enough time to reply. Anyhow, on to answering your questions. There are two new rules, guides will only be added to the main site if there is a road map, if there isn't one, then a guide won't be added until there is one. The part you seem to not understand though is the submission process. You can submit your guide whenever you're done with it. Though it won't be added to the main site until after 30 days have passed, this rule seems to apply to arcade games and dlc as well so it's a long waiting period to make corrections and updates. Guides don't get declined within the first month of a games release, they just sit in the forum until they are ready to be processed. There also isn't a guide on the main site for Halo: Reach, there is a forum guide. So I'm guessing you have got confused with the whole general writing process, you can write a guide at any point within the games release, or before if you get the game early. There can be several guides at one point, but they will all be condensed down into a single guide if they are all of equal quality. So basically there is no cut off to when you can submit a guide. Hopefully that helps answer your questions, if you do submit a guide though, it's going to be lumped onto the rather huge list of guides that haven't been processed in the past two months. Anyhow, this was just a quick one, I have to get back to my projects.
  3. It looks like big foot has come out of hiding in the new Undead Nightmares expansion. http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/11081/wtf?.article http://www.rockstargames.com/rockstar/local_data/US/img/news/wtf10222010.jpg Anyhow, discuss, it sort of makes you wonder if the warewolf has also made it into the game.
  4. Sorry I haven't replied sooner, I have been really busy with various projects and haven't ha time to interact with this site much. Anyhow, the issue with posting this guide belong to an unnamed friend normally means it's written by someone who was previously banned most likely. It does seem kinda silly to demand credit for something you didn't even write. Seeing as the person in question didn't provide names or a full set of credits I had to just use whoever posted what guide for credit. If the issue happens again in the future and the submitter doesn't provide credit, the guide will most likely go credit-less until someone provides the names. It is a rather irritating situation, but I split the credit regardless as I don't really want to with someone getting upset over something so trivial.
  5. The last time I checked, the quality of the avatar depends on the file size and proportions. Seeing as the limit is 100x100 and 19.5kbs, if you exceed the file size it ends up being compressed. Your current avatar without before uploading is over 25kbs, so if you can optimize the image and save it withing the 19kb size range it should solve your problem. The forum will compres uploaded images to save space, so that will most likely fix your issue. If you're wondering my avatar is 100x100 and under 8kbs with the right optimized options. It's also a JPG rather than a PNG.
  6. Yes indeedy, Congratulations to everyone who won a badge. Also congratulations to Xerofox and BenetGN for winning the first season of this SOTW. It was a rather close race which resulted in a tie. This next SOTW will be run by Dennis and start in a weeks time. We thought that we would give everyone a little break before the next one. If you don't have your awards yet you can request them HERE, proof that you won a badge and such is all posted on the first post of this discussion.
  7. Indeed it does, though you will need to buy some extra software to make it work. Elgatos EyeTv 3.1+ will allow you to use the hardware with your mac. The software costs $80, but it's the only way to get it to work without having to get run windows or VM Ware.
  8. Click on the go advanced option in the bottom right hand corner of the box. You can also double click the edit button as a quick shortcut.
  9. There will be one following the release of Undead Nightmares. They will probably do the event at the same sort of time after the Nightmares pack has been released. Rockstar confirmed this on their lasted Q&A post over at their site.
  10. Leveling up takes a while, it does in fact take a lot longer than the Brumak methods in Gears of War 2 though. Your best bet is to do what everyone else has done and play Pikes Basin over and over. On average you will earn 1,800xp every 5 minutes or so. That's if you get the hang of what to do anyhow. It's going to take you a good 40 hours still though. Just wait until there is another double XP event. Seeing as they have already done two, I'm sure there will be another after the next DLC release. I tried to level up a while ago usual the basic XP on Pikes Basin and it took forever to go from say level 29 - 30. I remember spending a good hour or so anyhow, maybe longer. If you do the Gears of War method effectively you can do 100,000 kills in less than 24 hours. Where as this XP for Red Dead takes far far longer. I imagine it would take a good week to go from level 1 - 50, playing roughly 6 - 8 hours a day. If you can hold out until the next XP event you will be able to earn 3,800 or so on Pikes Basin, don't bother with any other hideouts with these events though. The only other suggestion I have is to complete challenges for fun and just slowly progress.
  11. You can upgrade your RAM, but in this case you would need to do your RAM and processor. Seeing as you're using a laptop you would need extensive knowledge of taking it apart, and then finding upgradable parts. Seeing as laptops are such a pain to upgrade, you may also have to take into account what parts the laptop work with. I have no idea if you upgrade your processor if it would render your other hardware useless. From what I gather most laptops are made to work with certain parts, and nothing else. I could be wrong, but most repair shops are probably going to charge you a fortune to do that sort of upgrade. If you were using a desktop computer though, it's a whole lot easier and less hassle. Sorry I can't be much more help, but I don't really mess around with laptops unless it's replacing the same parts.
  12. If you mean some sort of stutter when you mention lag, i.e broken up audio, dips and breaks in the sound and juddery video. Then it's caused by your computer not being able to render the clip properly. Normally most video apps require a serious processor and a decent amount of RAM to deal with real time playback. If your processor isn't up to the job you will never seen a decent real-time playback without rendering and exporting the video. Some applications will allow you to enable some sort of rough real time playback so you can scrum through videos, but you will need a decent computer to do so. You will probably find your laptop just isn't up for the job. You could try upgrading your RAM, but it most likely won't make much of a difference sadly. I've had the same problem in the past with RAW video footage and Final Cut Pro, the only resolve was to upgrade or get a powerful machine to handle the task.
  13. This one has already ended. So you will need to wait until the next SOTW post is made and take part in that one. About the voting, if someone is friends with everyone who enters it would basically stop them from voting. Which wouldn't be fair. The voting seems to be working perfectly well so far, so we will just stick with it. Friends list don't mean a whole lot, most people just send friend requests on here just because. I get endless amounts from people I don't even know on this site. Now I just don't bother with them as it just seems a little pointless. Anyhow, the next one of these should be live within a week or two. It depends when Dennis wants to start and if he wants to take a week break between the seasons.
  14. We have a slight change to the rules from now on, you cannot vote for yourself. Any votes towards your own submissions will be void. The polls are ordered alphabetically, if your name isn't listed on the poll, but is listed below in this post you're still eligible.
