Visual Basic .NET - SMTP Mail Application

This tutorial will show you have to create an application to send mail via your VB application. You can use this as an error reporting tool or something similar.

This is one of the many tutorials that I'll create. I will do them upon request as well.

So we're aiming for this:

Skip Rapidshare, Megaupload and Mediafire waiting/payment

image: skipscreen

Okay, this is annoying when you're trying to download your (il)LEGAL copies of your games. You get the download in parts from Rapidshare and you can only download 1 of them every so often or w/e.

Here is a simple add-on for Firefox that will allow you to skip the timer screen.

- Suports
# Rapidshare (don't click! it's automatic!)
# Megaupload (captcha action coming soon!)
# Mediafire

Hide that porn

image: hidethemtits

Okay, I know this is a very old method and some or most of you most likely know it BUT, here we go.

1. Put all porn or w/e into 1 folder....

2. Right Click on the folder and hit rename. Erase the name of the folder so there is nothing there.

3. If you try to stop here windows will tell you that you need to provide a name. So to get around this… with the name field still active hold down ALT and press 0160 on the number pad

Xfire In-game and Ventrilo on Vista/Win7

inb4 tons of "ET should be ran as admin anyways", "Xfire sux" and "Trololol XP > all" replies

I experienced Ventrilo push-to-talk borkage if launching several games (including but not limited to ET) through Xfire on Windows Vista/7.

This can be noticed as the push-to-talk simply refusing to work at all, and this is caused by Xfire wanting to launch Enemy Territory as adminstrator, whereas I just want to run ET as user because it works just fine that way, and because of security reasons.

What if there was a simple solution that automatically backed up your demos online, as they are created, without you having to raise a finger or worry about a single thing? There is.

Customizing your Quake Live config & how to watch demos

A well customized Quake Live config that fits your preferences well enough is the beginning of good game play. Quake is one of the few games that allows extreme config customization. This is one aspect that makes Quake, in my opinion, better than all other shooters and creates extra opportunities.

Playing Field Ops - by jago

Beginner's HoN Guide

Baggiez's Disclaimer: HoN / DotA has the steepest learning curve of any game I've played as so much of the game is knowledge. This is a pretty layman's guide to the basics of the game. If you want to start playing then read this.

*2nd Disclaimer: DotA/HoN undergo constant balance updates, so when you read this, not all of it will be entirely accurate. Also, certain item builds of mine are completely based on my play style or which heroes I am opposed to, so don't bash on them.

Capturing Using IMAGE-ET

Getting Started

Firstly, you'd want to have everything setup properly with a separate copy of W:ET 2.60b + etpro 3.2.6
  • create a new empty folder named IMAGE-ET with two subfolders named etmain and etpro
  • copy the following files from your current game folder
    /etmain/mp_bin.pk3, pak{0-2}.pk3, cgame_mp_x86.dll, ui_mp_x86.dll
    /etpro/etpro-3_2_6.pk3, cgame_mp_x86.dll, ui_mp_x86.d

Editing ET Source Code

Youi'll need...
- Visual Studio 6 or higher (I recommend Visual Studio 8 C++ Express as its free !)
- ET SDK from splash damage
- Working installation of ET

- Know a bit of C
- Be able to use Visual Studio
- Install ET source code

Ok first step is to go to where the source code has been install
