Well, for the time being I am just backing up all my stuff in formats to work on my PS3..... easiest way to watch my anime....

As for trying another video player.... I am too afraid of another crash to try until I back things up.... last time it took me hours to even get back to a stable point where I could just sign into windows....

Checked all my cache files, ran CCcleaner, Reg-cure, malwarebytes, smart-defrag and a few other programs.... still no fix on the fragments SYSTEM.....

..... I am about ready to throw my arms up in the air with this one, get it backed up, and take it to someone.....

Not to mention this is like the worst possible time to try and push off a PSP special edition anyway. With the release of the Vita RPG fans of the PSP games have either jumped to a Vita or like have switched to a PSPGo (as the Vita's launch forced the price down to normal PSP pricing; and the 16GB internal memory for free coupled with the fact that every single JRPG is available for digital download with one major ommission). As such there is virtually no reason for JRPG fans to want to buy physical UMD games; and as such no reason to even 'want' a special edition.

I still use my psp 2000 and ALWAYS prefer physical copies of my games as well as physical data storage I can transfer, one system to the next if need be.... I always will.....though I imagine my affinity for such places me in a minority who may be behind the times a bit....

Loved Working Designs and teir bonus content. I loved their the making CDs

agreed! I have a little "working designs shrine" in my living room featuring the limited edition Arc the Lad Collection, Lunar SSSC, Lunar Eternal Blue, Growlanser HoW, and Growlanser G...... you have no idea how upset I am that ages ago I sold off my sega saturn and all my working designs titles (I had every one damnit!!).... look at the value of those on e-bay now.....

As for the class of heroes stuff..... I am ashamed to say it.... but I would totally make a huge donation to get a high level reward if I had the money.... the whole thing actually seems like a pretty cool concept to me.... albeit, a little presumptuous in some respects.... but I like it none-the-less

Ok..... I've manage to determine that it is the replay of video files for some reason the is causing the crashing.... or at least playing video files causes crashing 100 % of the time... I have managed to (after numerous scans and software passes to clean crud up) get it to a point where everything else runs like a charm.... HOWEVER..... a problem yet remains aside from the fact that video files don't work.....

... and this one has really got me on the ropes.... many hours of research and I still don't know for the life of me what it means... when I go to disk defrag it has 4 read-outs,

OS (C:) 0%
Hp Recovery (D:) 0%
Free-Agent Go Flex (my external drive)(O:) 0%
SYSTEM (77% fragmented)

Now.... WHAT IS SYSTEM AND WHY CAN'T I DEFRAG IT!!! I hit defrag..... I don't get any error messages.... I've tried running third party "powerful" defrag tools.... et cetera...... Still at 77 percent....  Should this concern me? Does this have anything to do with my malfunctions....???

well i looked it up on phototend.com/solar (solar questions and answers) and verbatim it says "an eclipse is when the moon goes between the sun and the floor, so all that change is the light. it confuses some animals but wont affect anything else.".... so I don't think that is the case....

1070  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: HELP GUYS!!... I don't know what happenned to my computer.... on: April 13, 2012, 07:16:53 PM
I really hate to believe this is spyware/malware but that looks to be the case to me too.... and with what I have invested in trend micro, registry cure, defender this, and platinum that.... I'm relatively pissed.... in fact I've never even so much as looked at one dirty picture on this com!!! I don't go to "questionable" websites either..... this my friends is bullshit!!

It can come from a wide variety of websites: some of which you would never suspect. If you haven't already, use a decent browser like Firefox or Chrome and make sure to have security add-ons such as AdBlock, NoScript, WOT, etc.

I am currently using Firefox with noscript running.

Please keep suggestions coming guys.... particularly in regard to what I should do when I discover the catylyst to the crashes.... because I believe I narrowed it down to the problematic program, but I'm still not sure how to go about fixing it....

Stuck in what I think is early in the second half of Wind Waker, sailing the open seas for any clue for entering these two new temples (just some town gossip thus far) and to find Triforce shards and charts (one thus far). Good times. This Zelda game is easy in terms of action, but really open and ballsy in design. Finally playing this was a good decision.

I'm just going to leave this here in code so that you can refer to it if you need to:

You need to get the Cyclone melody so that you can use it to fast travel into the center of the larger of the Mother Child Islands to receive the Fire&Ice Arrows. Once you have them you can open up the Fire and Ice islands to retrieve the Power Bracelets and the Iron Boots to open up the passageways to the temples. You also need to visit both Dragon Roost Island and Forest Haven to get either the bird girl or the tree boy to come with you to their respective dungeons (I believe you must first clear the way before the game tells you to go pick up the one needed for that dungeon; either that or you need to visit them first and then they'll lead you to the proper island).

Now that is a thoughtful community member-move if ever I did see one!!-- You just scored 10 points with me Aeolus!

Anyhow..... I finally beat riot's peak in Tales of Graces F! Yes I am proud.... Yes I did also post this in the Tales of Graces F thread.... Yes I am proud....

I also have decided to pick up my Final Fantasy 4 Complete Collection playthrough which I abandoned around this time last year.... Today I just completed the tower of babil (underworld) and said goodbye to two good friends *sob*..... why I am playing FF4 CC in the wake of so many other WAY more enticing backlogged titles? Well..... beats me.... just bothered me I never made it to the after-years I suppose..... I actually think I'm gonna make friday my specific "FF-Day" to complete backlogged final fantasy junk..... still need to get through 3 on the DS as well.....

As for the rest of my week.... well I'm on my way to securing me' grand old castle in my Suikoden "108 star play-through".... and that about covers it......

What I will add is this week has ROCKED as far as finding games at good prices went!! I frequent markets and scour stores for used copies of rare stuff all the time, but I really hit the jackpot this week... Check this list out.... Grandia 1-ps, Grandia 2-dc, evolution-dc, evolution 2-dc, shenmue-dc, chrono trigger- DS, the world ends with you- DS, Valkyrie Profile 2-ps2, dark cloud 2-ps2, Arc of Napishtan-ps2, all for 5 bucks a-piece..... I felt like it was a second christmas.....

Klyde Chroma, How are you going with this? Is it a windows PC? I've had this happen and it's been spyware/malware each time, what happens is you lose ownership of the hdd and it's contents. I would definately backup and format, Not a drive image backup but just what you want to keep.

..... well to give you an idea of how this is going.... I was backing up 500 gb's worth of stuff last night.... walked away, as the ETA for the copying to my external drive was 4 hours or so.... came back to discover another system crash.... this time the blue screen was not complete, and read something brief to the effect of "STOP x00000005 something....... system could not create memory dump......"..... so I hard restart the com..... windows won't start..... windows then tries to resolve the issue... windows cannot resolve the issue.... try to find a restore point.... windows says none exist.... then magically without any prompting by me what-so-ever, windows starts up and I am on my log on screen....everything is working just fine right now except this time all my files on my external drive decided to hide themselves.....

this is strangest thing I have ever experienced and the only trend I seem to notice is malfunctions only happen at night..... more accurately between 3am and 4am each night actually for the last 3 in a row.... then the rest of the day you'd swear I was a liar and nothing was wrong at all....

I really hate to believe this is spyware/malware but that looks to be the case to me too.... and with what I have invested in trend micro, registry cure, defender this, and platinum that.... I'm relatively pissed.... in fact I've never even so much as looked at one dirty picture on this com!!! I don't go to "questionable" websites either..... this my friends is bullshit!!

And now to make matters worse.... MY PSP is malfunctioning!!! That issue (obviously) deserves a whole other thread entirely but seriously.... all this techno-problemo's are really getting to me..... there is no reason for this.... in a day and age where camera's can be sent to other planets to take pictures and safely send data back to us on earth, computers should exist that DO NOT CRASH WITHIN THE FIRST YEAR OF THEIR LIFE!!! sorry.... sorry.... needed to rant for a moment....
1073  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: April 13, 2012, 01:29:39 PM
I would just like to say... BOOO-YAH, RIOTS PEAK!!! You've been conquerred!!!.... and damn does it feel good.....
1074  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: HELP GUYS!!... I don't know what happenned to my computer.... on: April 12, 2012, 06:17:24 PM
Well, if you can somehow manage it when your pc works, try installing a linux distro or even just booting off a live CD.  Unless something is critically wrong with your hardware (possible), you could at least use the linux os to backup the rest of your data.  Once that is done, you could reformat and see how that goes.

I was afraid it might come to this... "reformatting"... the dirtiest, most dreaded term in my pc vocab..... it would take me ages to get things up and running as I have them now... in fact I don't even know how to.... last time I ended up having to re-purchase all sorts of non-sense I purchased digitally online and whatnot..... as you could tell I'm not very well versed in these matters/don't know all the appropriate and important stuff to back up....

any tips in regard to backing things up I may overlook? as for now I am just concerned with my anime, my art and that is all I know really.... but obviously there are more important things then that..... for instance I have adobe PS CS5, now how would I go about backing that up to restore it in event of a reformat?
1075  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: HELP GUYS!!... I don't know what happenned to my computer.... on: April 12, 2012, 05:17:06 PM
Don't know what's wrong, but now seems like a lovely time to back up your data.  Just throwin' that out there.

Well I backed up a great deal of stuff.... unfortunately I have way too much to accomplish all of that in one sitting.... but I'm plugging away at it.... when all the sudden....a new problem emerges.... system crash/memory dump/blue screen of death!!!

The system crash keeps happenning now.... I keep restoring.... sometimes it works for hours.... sometimes minutes.... sometimes I can log into windows.... sometimes I cannot.... I don't know what is going on... I never really had any problems prior to this and my computer is only a year old.
1076  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Getting psyched for Gungnir on: April 11, 2012, 06:23:24 PM
While having only dipped my toe in the lake of Yggdra and Knights, I am still super stoked about Gungnir.... I have had it pre-orderred since it was officially given its date.... I hope I can find the time to get through Yggdra and Knights before this comes out though, because my current "to play" list is massive and  I fear these maybe gems that slip by me despite being on my shelf..... Because If I am correct and Gungnir is not related to those titles in any way, than I feel it may take precedence to me before those. I absolutely adore the art style and aesthetics... major selling point for me.....
1077  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenosaga 1, somehow not attracted..... on: April 11, 2012, 03:40:43 PM
Cmon Klyde, you should know better than to continue derailing a topic. I sadface man :(

Since I'm posting here anyway, was going through this not too long ago, and had been grinding for tp heavily for maybe 2 hours, when I got inti a random fight and used kosmos x buster to nab a x10 bonus, when the game froze on me. Pretty sure I mentioned how this happened to me not too long ago with Jr and moonlit serenade too, but it still made me rage.

I'm sorry.... your right, I do know better... I get excited over PS2 talk and my lower nature takes control.... I just can't help it...

As for your freezing issue, I feel for you man... Happened to me a time or two as well when moving from one environment to the next... screen would go dark and never light back up..... I lost like two hours of gameplay meandering through the innards of the gnosis to that scenario....
1078  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Project X Zone - The Namco X Capcom sequel on: April 11, 2012, 03:34:32 PM
I too hate cross-universe titles.... even when my beloved Etna makes a cameo in an NIS release it bothers me.... and I love Etna.....

As for anything that has to do with capcom, well.... I think the only thing that could excite me now would be another breath of fire.... yes I would love a breath of fire.... heck, after I bought the game i'd even dump another title or two's worth into all the DLC.... I actually had a dream that the big Namco x Capcom x Sega revelation was a new breath of fire..... I was gonna post here about it but my computer decided to take some time off lately....
1079  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenosaga 1, somehow not attracted..... on: April 08, 2012, 07:05:09 PM
I recently dusted off the PS2 and I'm trying to catch up on several RPG'S on it that I missed during the last 7-8 years. I've got FF XII ready to go and some of the Shin Megami Tensei and Xenosaga games are on my radar. Any "must play" suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

This should probably be another topic.... and it probably will end up as one... but I'll bite anyhow.... here are a few off the top of my head...

Suikoden 3-5 ( liked 5 best personally)
Wild Arms 4 or 5
Magna Carta (I don't care what anyone says... I loved it)
Growlanser Generations and Growlanser Heritage of War (these are most definately "must play" IMO)
Valkyrie Profile 2 The Silma....Silma... Silma-something..... (forgot the title specifcally, still decent)
Disgaea 1and 2 (loved em)
Persona 3 and 4 (loved em)
Digital Devil Saga (loved what I saw of em)
Nocturne (everyone loved it as far as the SMT stuff goes.... I found it pretty bland.... while the environments and tone are very cool, I just couldn't get into it personally..... something about playing as demon that looks more like a techno raver turned me off)
Devil Summoner (loved the first... heard the second was better, still have yet to get to it)
Dark Cloud 2 (I didn't dig the first)
Shadow Hearts (people rave about this one... I have yet to get to it myself)
Dragon Quest  VIII

I am 40 some hours in and absolutely love this game.... I really think its my favorite Tales title yet.... Whats really shocked me, it being a tales game and all, is how in love I've fallen with the cast... In most of the other tales games they were an afterthought collectively, save a few particular characters sprinkled throughout, in the wake of awesome gameplay..... But I really love em  and their interactions in this one! Like quite honestly Richard, Hubert, Sophie and Pascal are all just completely worth writing home about.
Wait, really? Tales characters, while fitting into idiotically generic anime archetypes, have always taken center stage. I don't think there are many other series that can match the character interactions and relationships Tales characters do.

Anyway, yeah. On the basis of gameplay alone, Graces f is one of the best in the series. Shame about the music though.

Funny thing is I love generically idiotic anime-LoL

I don't know though.... for as much as I've loved the Tales games, the casts always proved forgettable to me.... I actually didn't like any of the Abyss cast at all to be honest... As I said a few exceptions stick out in my mind throughout the years, but none I really fell in love with. I guess I should have been more specific, as its the characters themselves I found mundane... the interactions and cast development was probably their only saving grace with me in prior installments.

Though I must admit... I did always think Kratos was pretty bad ass.... and its been too long for me to recall Tales of Eternia (once I finish graces F, that is getting another playthrough)
