Re: The Omni-Present Currently Playing Thread

I'm getting laughed at (in a loving way, of course) for spamming this topic recently, and it has been suggested that I toss up something less random and go with my favorites. I tell people I don't have a single favorite artist or band, but that isn't true when I really think about it. I love good so...

Re: NWN GOG Specials Again!

Bump with an FYI bit. Because you can buy all of the extras that are included with the Deluxe edition of EE separately on the Basic NWN: EE page, the individual discounts make them even cheaper (by a whole dollar or two total... whoohoo!). You can also buy all of the nice extra modules without the s...

Re: YouTube thread

I avoid this topic because of what I'm about to post, and probably because it has been posted (I searched, but matching YouTube ID's isn't an art form). This is what I get as suggested crap to watch on YouTube because of hanging around with folks in Discord chat. You are to blame for the cuteness ov...

One of my favorite "Old Fart" artists to watch when he tours this way, which he does frequently. He can still hit the high notes from the Supertramp days, but his solo stuff is worth a listen to if you have the time.

If you leave a pair of 80's and 90's synth-pop junkies home alone together, you shouldn't be surprised at what you hear (or see) when you walk in the door.

Something old and something new (Dido finds her way into playlists here pretty often)
Hunter (Live at Brixton Academy) and

The last one is from her album this year. She's only a few years younger than me, and definitely looks (and sounds) better. :grandpa:

There are a lot of old songs I've listened to before, but never really paid that much attention to the lyrics. This is one that I finally really listened to tonight, and I was pretty amazed how close to home it hits (yeah, I know... mushy stuff). :)

My playlist generator keeps tossing this one in mine lately, and if you had asked me 4 or 5 years ago, I'd have called it one of my theme songs. Not so much these days with recent *coughs* improvements to my life, but it is still a fun, toe-tapping summer song. Besides, I'm a big fan. :prost: The Tr...

Re: Barter Bug

I prefer the middle wheel button for panning and zooming, so no need for the edge stuff in a window. I haven't found anything about that problem so far in my searching, but I'll keep looking. If it was a higher resolution then I might suspect the scaling or some such, but 1600x900 is not that big. I...

Those files should be in there. BioWare added them to fix a few goofs in the last update.

I'm not sure what to suggest. Do you play fullscreen or in window mode when the problem happens?

Re: Barter Bug

Odd. I used to play at 1600x900 on one box quite a bit, though in window mode, and also have it used at that resolution on a few laptops.

Do you have any overrides that might be messing with the GUI?

Sometimes it is a combination of more than one model with VFX trying to work together. Newer drivers and cards se...
