961  Media / Brush and Quill / Learning to draw People on: June 07, 2010, 06:31:14 AM
I'm much more of a writer than an artist, but I would really like to be able to draw (at least on a basic level) some of the characters I write in my books.

I can draw, but I'm not all that good. I can draw a basic figure of a person, but my proportions are often a little out. I am also terrible at drawing faces.

Can anyone give me some advice or link me to some good websites?

Oh, and just to clarify, I'm wanting to draw these people in a more realistic fashion as opposed to comic-style.

Thanks for the advice guys.

It turns out when my password was reset again it was actually Blizzard doing it as part of their investigation. So no worries there.

I have never logged in at a friends either. Perhaps it was just one, unlucky thing? As far as I can tell my PC is fine and I really don't want to reformat unless I have to...
963  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: PC Security Question (Relates to World of Warcraft) on: June 06, 2010, 08:31:04 AM
I think I'm going to have to.

I just got an email from Blizzard telling me my Warcraft password has been reset again. I didn't ask them to do it!

But seriously if I can run so many different scanners and something is still wrong then I guess I can never be safe...

--
I've never actually reformatted before. Can anyone advise me?

I didn't get a Vista install disc, or any other disc, when I bought my laptop so I don't know how I could reinstall it. Also (it's a Toshiba), will I lose all the programs that came with the system when I bought it because I don't have a disc? Any way to download them again after wiping everything? What about stuff like drivers for video cards?

And if someone could give me or direct me to a reformatting guide that would be awesome. Thanks.

Thanks, I'm downloading Microsoft Security Essentials now.

In terms of the keylogger (assuming that's what I have) how would I go about locating it? I mean, if all my scanners don't pick up anything then what's the next step to take?

That was shocking!

Granted I don't know anything about the website in question, but they were so cruel to him for no real reason! They remind me of a couple of women I have worked with over the years who are over-the-top feminists and overreact to just about everything.
966  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / PC Security Question (Relates to World of Warcraft) on: June 05, 2010, 08:23:57 PM
Hey guys.

I recently started playing World of Warcraft again and everything was going fine. Yesterday, I logged on to find my account had been hacked. All my gear, items, gold etc. was gone. I filed a ticket with Blizzard and they're currently looking into it. Very annoying, but not the end of the world.

Anyway, my question relates to my PC. I don't understand how anyone would have gotten into my account. I have scanned my PC with (one at a time so they don't interfere with each other):

--Avast!
--AVG
--MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
--Spybot Search & Destroy
--Windows Defender
--ProcessScanner (to see if any weird programs were running)

and none of them found anything at all. I never followed any links from gold farmers/scammers/hackers in game, nobody else knows my account info and I never gave out my password. I'm also very careful with what I download. I have anti-phishing and warnings in-place on my FireFox too.

Does anyone know how on earth someone managed to hack me? And should I believe all the above scanners when they tell me nothing is wrong with my PC?

I'm running Vista x64.

Why is everyone so aggressive on this topic? Can't we all just get along? :)

I'll be honest, I absolutely hate video games today.

But I would like to talk about this. I'm not trying to be difficult, but there's actually a lot of good games coming out today. You can certainly argue that there aren't as many good ones as the "old days" and you might be right. But don't forget that crap games have been coming out for decades and will still continue to come out. There might be more now than there used to be, but I think that are some exceptional games still coming out. Especially some gems that aren't as well known or marketed as strongly.

I can see it now....Terra running down a corridor for 70+ hours looking at poorly textured rocks and visiting cool places for all of 15 minutes and never being let in again, smacking Sabin over the head for being an idiot, riding Magitek Armor that makes her look like she's having an orgasm, and lots and lots of mediocre voice acted cutscenes, and all to the tune of lousy J-Pop.

Welp. Sign me up, because I'll pay $80 for the version with the words Special Edition stamped on front.

Sounds like an awesome game! Count me in! :P

But seriously, a properly done remake of VI would be more exiting than a remake of VII, I think. I would also kill to see a HD version of Terra. Dissidia just wasn't good enough for me!

Shattered Memories was a decent game, but it could work better as a totally new IP an not as a Silent Hill title.

That's so true. I rather enjoyed Shattered Memories, but it didn't feel entirely like Silent Hill to me. Well, except for where it was set :P
970  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A thought about "Trophies" on: May 31, 2010, 07:50:14 PM
I like the concept of Trophies, but I don't think they're entirely necessary.

Trophies give me an incentive to finish of some of the side quests I wouldn't normally bother with. Often after I finish the main storyline of a game I often don't go on to do post-game stuff unless I really loved it. But, at the same time, I get really annoyed when I didn't finish a game (because it was awful) and have a really low trophy score on my a profile. So it's a mixed bag for me.

I guess I'm a moron too then. I couldn't see the relation either :P

Light Warriors is neither a grind nor a slog. Itís a nice little game. While not quite the girl youíd take home to mom, itís definitely the non-gay male friend who you would take to Sunday dinner, who would help say grace and then thank your mom very sincerely for the corn bread.

That is an awesome paragraph!

Was it a brain hemorrhage...or perhaps he had a different stroke?

That's so cruel. But I laughed anyway.
974  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Problems installing Baldur's Gate 2 on Windows 7 64 bit on: May 27, 2010, 08:51:09 AM
Same here. I'm pretty sure I must have nearly tried everything possible. I spent hours looking up fixes online. No luck.

Though I have a different problem to you Uru. Mine actually installs fine, but won't play. Trying to actually run the game causes it to automatically crash and display a weird number error.
