Thanks for the tips Sam, helped alot.
Before, I was stretching the window across both monitors, which does work but I was getting very low fps.
With the single span setup fps is much better.
However, when I full screen LFS (shift+F4), the second monitor goes blank.
Is this an unavoidable limitation or can I fix it?
Im 32, I wear ear plugs at very loud gigs as well, as I do at very loud motor sport events. I dont want to damage my ears either, Im well aware of the dangers. I will however, defend our right to play loud music where undue stress is not placed on the residents of the surrounding area.
This is not about how loud is too loud, this is about our civil liberties being taken away.
I am aware that many places already have these systems in place, I used to work at one. This law will mandate these systems at *all* entertainment venues. What about the NEC? No one lives with a mile of it.
So Gordon Brown has come up with a way of controlling the credit crunch, by making sure that when we go and see our favourite bands or even, comedy, the volume can't exceed a set barrier,
We'll be the first country to implement this law, but it means an end to loud gigs that yes may hurt your ears for two days afterwards but in a good way, and also anybody shouting down a microphone at a stand up event, will have the mic cut off as it will exceed the safe noise level,
there's a petition against this law, and I'm giving you the opportunity to sign it, I personally feel if this government has been trying to shut us up for years, and this is another way, of limiting expression! It's not North Korea, but for god's sake aren't we all sensible enough to know when something's too loud?
make you're own minds up, we do after all live in a democracy,
Confectionery packer? The dave police (thats me by the way) says that this is another context issue. How is it being said? Does the person in question actually pack fudge for a living? Are the homosexual? Are they thin skinned?
Its very difficult to use the word paki without it sounding or being taken in a derogatory way, just call them Pakistanis and save the hassle. Go on, add those extra sylables, you need the exercise
Well its pretty difficult undoing years of abuse, I dont think we are ready for it. Most of the younger generation probably is, but the older generation most certainly is not. There is also the small percentage that will adopt their parents attitudes and perpetuate the hate.
There is also the issue of context, in certain circumstances it might be fine to use words unacceptable to the general public. Like if your friend who just happens to be black asks you to call him sooty, why wouldnt you?
For me its no problem, I dont see it as censorship to not use those unacceptable words. Why deliberately offend people just for the sake of one word? I prefer to keep the peace.
Have we gone slightly off topic? Does anyone care?
As far as I know the word Brit has no history of being used in a derogatory way, whereas the word Paki most certainly does.
It makes me sad coming back here, from a casual observer stand point this forum has just got worse and worse over the years.
Ive stopped being surprised by it, accepting that its just human nature.
The bigger the group, the worse it gets.
It just reminds me what I hate about life and people.
What am I doing here then? Looking for the VW of course!
Also, Im a non-active LFS fanboy, I cant help but look in here to see what has become of my beloved LFS. Whilst the sim is still great, these forums are not a nice place to be. Like most of the internet.
I have *no idea* how the devs put up with the stuff that gets posted in the test patch forum. So_many_idiots.
I searched but could not find this already posted.
Some modern phones have motion sensors inside them, iPhone, N95, HTC Diamond.
Some clever dude has worked out how to use this feature on the N95 to control the PC, as a mouse, or even as a wheel
Some people think its a fake, but its definitely possible.
I was just chuffed the guy used LFS for the video.
Its not a replacement for a proper wheel, but its interesting none the less.
The video -
That clamp was probably 3 or 4 years old, I was using a tool to tighten it up, but still I was mildly surprised it broke, but then I know very little about the lifespan of plastics and that stuff.
Thanks for the duck tape trick art555, good idea, Ill use that
It was a combination of Driver Cleaner Pro (great tip thanks for that) and believe it or not, Windows Update.
I tried all sorts of drivers, including various omega drivers, none of which worked.
After a full clean of all drivers, I went to windows update and installed whatever driver it gave me, system info says version no. 188.8.131.52, dunno how useful that will be.
Thanks for all your help guys
"if it aint broke, dont fix it"
A piece of advice I should of taken last night.
I tried reinstalling my graphics driver to add the CCC, Ive been running without it until now. Now I cant get any of them to work.
Ive tried every driver on my computer, with and without the CCC.
I keep getting the same problem, which makes me think the card is damaged.
Although the device manager reports no problems, there is no hardware acceleration, no software can find it. So no software that relies on it will start, LFS tells me "Could not detect any screen modes. Probably error in graphics driver", Armadillo run tells me "No hardware acceleration found. Please ensure you have installed the drivers for your graphics card".
So does anyone know what drivers will work with this card?
Or can anyone confirm the chances that my card is damaged?
Or any other ideas?
Athlon XP 3200
Abit AV8 motherboard
1Gb 3200 DDR RAM
Radeon 9800 Pro
Yes I am aware this is well due an upgrade, which is planned.
But I need to fix this in the meantime, this jerky scrolling in Firefox is doing my head in.
