Gaming / I'm going to refurbish my old Gameboy Advance
« on: December 10, 2019, 22:08 »
Since I want to make videos eventually, I want to make my games consoles look their best.

My old Gameboy Advance has really badly lost the colour on the front. I'm going to replace everything on it.

Button pads
Buttons and side panels
Screen cover
Sound enhancement

I'll show you a picture of it once I have all of the parts and have put it together.

TNM asked me on Discord (possibly jokingly) if I plan to replace the screen as well. Ironically enough, I do, actually!

I recently found my (nearly 12 year) old laptop.

I installed Windows XP on it so that I can use old software that doesn't work on anything else, but I (somewhat unsurprisingly) have a bit of a problem.

I don't know all of the minimum requirements that need to be met before I can connect it to a printer.

When I first set it up, I noticed that it didn't have any drivers installed. It doesn't even have a driver that allows it to connect to wifi! I'll have to manually look for all the drivers I need.

The laptop I'm using is this one.

I know I shouldn't be sharing product keys, but I don't know of any other way of entering it into my laptop without going between my laptop and pc while I enter it in sections. Using my phone to read this page is the easiest way to do it.

TV and Movies / Describe actors in the fewest words possible
« on: September 10, 2019, 19:42 »
My dad and I were chatting about actors earlier, and I thought it would be interesting if we could describe actors that we like in the fewest words possible.

James Earl Jones: Puberty. Up to eleven!
Zac Effron: Hates singing. Sings anyway.
Robin Williams: Mad genius.

My mum came up with the last one, but I agree with her. I can't think of any others for now.

Media / Can MikuMikuDance mimic sign language?
« on: August 24, 2019, 14:47 »
I've been chatting with someone on Facebook whom I'm also subscribed to on Youtube. I told her that it may be theoretically possible to make a MMD character use Makaton, though I've never tried it before.

Is it possible to make MMD characters do something like this?

Games General / Dynamax Wailord!
« on: August 14, 2019, 16:15 »
I've been reading about the new Dynamax feature in Sword and Shield. I've also noticed Dynamax Wailord memes.

Is anyone going to try using it with Wailord?

Five words come to mind:
Dynamax Wailord Heavy Slam Ouch!

Gigantamax Wailord is bound to be huge too.

Other Games / Pokemon Go Friend Codes

I was thinking, it would be a good idea to share our Pokemon Go friend codes here. I'll update the list if anyone shares theirs.

Music / Songs with nonsense lyrics
« on: May 28, 2019, 12:47 »
I've been chatting with my art tutor at my art group today, and we were trying to think of a few songs with nonsense lyrics.

Witch Doctor is a good example, with the "Ting Tang Walla Walla Bing Bang" part.

Are there any others you can think of?

Gaming / Which one is better?
« on: May 09, 2019, 19:29 »
My dad and I have been looking for a processor for my new pc.

My dad showed me this one.
I found this one.

I don't know which one is better.

Which one should I get?

Gaming / Fraps and Minecraft
« on: April 27, 2019, 14:41 »
I'm currently working towards building my own gaming pc. Any advice you could give me to improve it would be much appreciated.

I want to play Minecraft with mods, while recording with Fraps. Many people complain that Fraps lags Minecraft to the point that it isn't even playable anymore! Fraps is the only screen capture program that I have which works with all the games that I play. I would much rather use Fraps and have it work with all my games, than have various different programs which collectively works with all my games.

Is there any way with my gaming pc setup that I can reduce the lag while recording, aside from avoiding using Fraps in the first place?

My current pc has 8gb of ram in it, with 4gb allocated to Minecraft. The spawn room I created with mods is enough to make Minecraft lag in seconds with the number of mobs that spawn in it. I get lag with my spawn room without even using Fraps!

Gaming / What does this mean?
« on: April 19, 2019, 19:09 »
I've been looking at various things to build my own gaming pc from scratch.

On this particular motherboard that I like, it says it supports DDR4-3466+(OC) memory.

I know that OC means overclocked, but I don't actually know what overclocked means. I don't know if it saying that it needs to be overclocked to use DDR4-3466 memory, or that's the maximum amount of memory it can use without being overclocked.

Here is the motherboard I plan to use.

Gaming / Which of these racing games do you recommend?
« on: March 18, 2019, 19:47 »
GOG website link

I'm going to buy my fiancé a laptop for his birthday. He likes racing games, so I decided to look on GOG for some. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about any of the games. Star Wars Racer is the only exception, because my brother used to play it.

Which would you say are the best ones?

TV and Movies / Do you know of any stop motion films/tv shows?
« on: February 02, 2019, 13:04 »
I'm working on an art project with my fiancé. We're going to create mini film sets, so we can recreate our favourite episodes of The Bill with stop motion. The project was originally my idea, but he asked me if he could help me with it.

I'm not sure if he has seen any stop motion films/tv shows though. Can anyone recommend any that we could watch together? The best idea is probably to watch 20 minute episodes of tv shows. To be honest, I don't think I've seen all that many stop motion films/tv shows myself, except for maybe Wallace and Gromit.

We're going to use people like this in our videos. I've even found various standard size toy cars on Amazon, but the cars are much smaller than the people. Would chroma keying work with stop motion to make everything look the right size if I add my props on different layers?

I've never heard of anyone doing stop motion with chroma keying before. Trying it myself will certainly be interesting!

Music / Abba and Steps songs that sound similar
« on: January 25, 2019, 14:30 »
Some people have noticed some Steps songs sound like Abba songs. One example is the chorus of One For Sorrow (Steps) sounds like the chorus of The Winner Takes It All (Abba).

How many other Abba and Steps songs have you noticed?

Other Games / Is there anyone living near me who plays Pokemon Go?
« on: November 23, 2018, 15:44 »
I know I shouldn't be asking people where they live, but I think it would be nice if I could get a few people to team up with me for raid battles one day.

I live in Odd Down, which is in Bath (England), a short distance away from the Red Lion pub. Does anyone else live in the nearby area? I've never been to any gyms or raids before.

I wouldn't mind trying them out. I need someone to help me with them and explain what I need to do.

Your Art / Making hands
« on: October 22, 2018, 21:39 »
I saw a video on the BBC news website, showing how to make a paper mache hand. I wouldn't mind trying it.

I'm going to make them in the positions and with the colours shown in this picture.

The video is here.

I'm not sure how to make it so that the hands don't move out of the positions I need them in. Any advice?
