Sorry, I didn't realize my brother still had access to my Nerfhaven account because of the "remember me" setting for his computer (which I used to use). I'm shutting down the auto-loggin on his computer, so this won't happen again.
This has nothing to do with pirating, if you want to do that (and get banned) make your own topic. All I was asking was if anyone knew how to unpack a .bin file. The wii can save to SD cards, and I found the save file on the SD with my card reader. I don't know if I made that clear... So yes, it is saving a backup (somewhat) but it's built to do that, it needs a save file-I just told it to save to a removable disk.
I just thought I could open the binary pack and change some numerical values, like my wii-sports "pro level" (it would be nice to be level 9999)
Also, no, I don't really need help with Zelda, it's my brother's game, thanks anyway.
How did this turn into a discussion about PS2 chipping, and then being kicked off the forum and furtermore arrested? Funny how that works
Macs still have several things better that Windows, mainly in graphics and storage/data management. Mac's Hard drives never have to be defragged, due to the more advanced storage system-something that Windows would require an entire system rewrite from scratch to make available, not to mention the product recalls for harddrive disfunctions after programming problems. Macs also have integrated graphics memory, simplifying the way the graphics work. Macs are made for media, Windows works well with direct data input (games and docs).
typically, macs are used for graphics because they become "traditional" and becuase they handle graphics well.
The iPhone probably won't do well, honestly. It is an apple flop, but it's still awsome in capabilities. I was really just waiting for it to come out so I could see the demo models in the apple store
The file is a .bin inside about five folders, just wondering if anyone has found a way to hack this file, or even extract it. (I wouldn't mind having a level 9999 player or infinite health in Zelda)
I'm also surprised that on a generaly technological community that no-one else has talked about hacking consoles (there were a good deal of "which console do you like better" threads though).
Just asking, I don't mind if you have no idea.
Why does the Wii have twice the sales of the PS3? because people like the games for it.
In a competition between the games of PS and Xbox, really, which one would you choose? Obviously xbox
This always irritates me: I don't think that video quality matters. There's a difference between 1950's "tubes" and CRTs, but when it comes to HD, there are visual qualities that the companies put it screens just to raise the market value becuase it sounds fancier to the average american: Homer Simpson. I'm not saying that HD is worthless, there are visible improvements in quality, but does it matter enough to be more important that the quality of the game?
They actually have these. Not to shoot nerf balls, or tennis balls, or potatoes, but (of all things) shirts.
At basketball games, the do have "shirt cannons" that shoot rolled-up tee-shirts to the crowd using a pressure tank. If you modified it and replaced the shirts (which go pretty far considering they're cotton wads) with something sensible to shoot at people like a foam-rubber dodgeball
The best picture I found of what foam I'm talking about.
You could make a fun little "pirate-cannon" out of this, and it would make gym class a good deal easier...
The force required to make this thing shoot horizontally would be nearly impossible. With spiraled fins, shooting it at the desired target would require so many calculations that by the time you had it positioned to coordinates, your target would be hundreds of feet away.
Military rocket launchers have enough power and flight technology to shoot on a horizontal plane. Real rockets that are more advanced need room for computers, and so those are the ones your would have to model after.
Non-horizontal, hellfire rocket launchers use a precisely delayed timer to first shove the rocket lightly out of the tube, and then (the gyroscopes and timers work here) it waits until just the right moment in falling out of the tube so that it's angled upwards and launches from there.
There is almost no way to have that kind of gyroscopically delayed rocket made of foam. Even if you tried to make it launch horizontally, the weight of the rocket and CO2 tank together would stay in balance to keep it from simply dropping out of the barrel (and maybe drifting five feet)
And, yes there's more, it's really dangerous. Not a particularly good idea to be playing with unregulated co2 tanks.
(I thought about this at one point too, I just don't think it's safe or practical to do)
But sorry, I have actually been making this exact design (trying to keep it a SECRET ) I mentioned that I was making the gun here: Longer Barrels thread
I got the idea from howstuffworks, you too? (yes, I've actually started building it, and I was going to try to restrain from posting about it.)
Also, I already have full plans for it, for a breech loading mechanism based on rotation.
I did play runescape, I went through two phases (both around a year long) of playing it in fact.
I liked it, but eventualy realized the pointlessness of it, and used my time on it to "merchant" or buy valuables from stupid people for the wrong values. I didn't quit because i was losing, I had around 50,000 gold.
You will too realize after time that there are much better games you can play for free. I personally prefer Quake conversions like Tremulous and Nexuiz.
Runescape screwed me up, and it probably accounts for most of my after-game awards in Tremulous for "Chattiest Mother******" (seeing there are a good deal of younger people here prompts me to censor)
Try out those games too, they're good.
Still (its an awsome idea, not saying anyting against it) I don't understand the basis that it works on. Why should people use it instead of ebay/forums? No, I didn't look at the site, sorry.
Also, nice sig. Hitchhiker's guide quote? I say that all the time, as well as flarg, blirgen, speckleheimerMcnewtonfigurestien, and splingarg
I built the plunger tube for my gun, and I'm getting the fishtail thing, my plunger tube is reverse of normal homemades like the SCAR/FAR, with a large tube moving over a small one (the barrel). I installed a very basic breech, and rubber bands force the plunger forward since I have no springs. This plunger easily has several times the power of the Mav, so scratch that.
Moving on, the breech sucks. Where do I get foam sheets? I've been using duct tape for seal... also, right now the only thing really hindering the performance to an average of 20' is that half of the shots are misfires due to the duct tape's rubberiness. I think with a smooth (and sealed) breech and plunger I could raise my range to at least 60' (good enough for what I want to use this for)
More power doesn't lead to less accuracy, with the right weighting no accuracy problems should occur. And I see now that I had the wrong idea of this before, and that the bottle is going over, not into, the barrel. Oh well.
More importantly, this was a dead topic from half a month ago, check the date before posting.
To help you adjust to life on a forum, please read my post HERE
Pretendonitis: humming a really high note, the goal was to make Dwight go to the ear doctor, but if that doesn't work it can still be pretty annoying.
The other one I thought of was kind of like the clock thing. You take someone's cell phone, hide it in the cieling/tape it under chair and call it over and over. The cieling is probably the best choice. I wish I had done this when I found a phone at a party. I knew the owner, but I couldn't find the number.
Rather than going through the trouble of making a silencer I'd just make the barrel longer, that way I improve my accuracy and range while quieting the weapon.
Longer barrels aren't always key, it's the volume of the barrel compared to the volume of air being pumped in. On a plunger gun the volume of the plunger tube should be a little more than the barrel's volume to acheive max efficiency. If the barrel has more volume than the plunger/input the dart will lose power while in the barrel, making it less efficient. That's why guns like the crossfire, nitefinder, and maverick (which hardly have any barrel) gain power from extended (more efficient) barrels.
Other than that, what were you saying, Rambo? I didn't get any of that, something about OMC... maybe that picture?
I honestly don't know. Please tell me that wasn't something against my post.
Oh, and besides that, I don't think I ever more than implied/PMed this: The post in The Cheapest homemade ever about me quitting the forums was an outburst of disease induced deleria. If anyone is mad at me about that, I didn't mean it, nor do I really have any idea why I posted it.
Pneumonia really sucks.
The summer is obviously the perfect time to start nerfing, thus the influx of new members by the thousands. I probably joined at the wrong time, when "prey" for angry members to flame about was scarce, and I consider myself quite the whatsit magnet. Still, there are now about 5 posts saying "Hi, I'm a noob" on the forum, and, being a noob once myself, I would like to contribute some vital knowledge beyond the code of conduct.
For one (I don't want to backseat moderate, that's not the purpose of this post) don't post a "hi, I'm here and I'm a noob" message, that was practically what my Cheapest Homemade Ever! topic was, and if you'll read it, you can see why no good comes of that. Don't start a flame war.
Learn your superiors: this should come naturally, but don't TRY to create trouble. For instance it would be a BAD idea to flame at Pineapple or Groove. Don't
With all those "don't"s you're probably wonder what you should do. You should (to at a minimum avoid being banned)
1. Post reasonable topics
2. Make sense
3. Actually read the Code of Conduct (I didn't, and man did I screw up)
Again, this is a post for the newcomers from someone who really wrecked his account in the start. I'm not trying to backseat moderate, just save people from making a bad first impression, and negatively reinforcing-so don't do what I did, noobs.
To be sure I'm getting this right, are you saying the barrel should be only the same volume as the plunger tube? that makes sense.
Revealing a bit more about my 'under wraps' gun (no I haven't started it), I plan to have a plunger tube and spring slightly more powerful than a maverick (for less cocking pressure), and I'm trying to avoid centrifical spray from a moving-and-shooting turret. I'm thinking about 6" barrels with 2-3" shells. I'm inexperienced with this, so my shells may suck, but regardless, would nearly 10" of barrel be reasonable for a maverick strength gun?
Thanks for the quick comments.
1: I figured this one out today, and it not only gets someone slimed in bodily fluids, but might get you a "get out of school free" pass if you tell the nurse.
first, chug milk (on an empty stomach)
next, chug orange-juice
For those of you who havent done this, it causes the milk to curdle in your stomach, creating a mock stomach flu. Not reccommended for those faint of heart... or stomach
2: This is also less of a prank, but sometimes it's amusing to be an "aggressive driver" in the halls. I made a lot of people angry by calling them road-blocks, or my favorite: wide loads.
3: I won't outstay my welcome on this thread, but here's one last one off the top of my head. using sticky-tack, gum, erasers, or anything else small and slightly moldable, you can jam people's lockers open, but make them appear to close.
in three places on the door, there is a "barb" shaped like this:
The carrats point to what I call the 'lock point'. once the lock-pole slides into this, it won't come out until the lock is removed, and the trigger pulled upwards.
To stick the locker open, find something (I've found large, removable erasers work best) to close of the barb, and turn it into an arrow:
When you see the opportunity, cram the object into the lock-point area, and it should stay unlocked, but closed if done correctly.
Seriously, don't try to vomit on people though. It was an accident. Kinda...
And the aggressive driving was kinda kiddy, but fun.
Oh well, good bye Whatsyourname McPirateman
May Blarg be with you.
So, what barrel lengths are reasonable? I understand that having a dart protrude from the end is power reducing (thus the use in store-bought guns) but is there any reason to make a barrel excessively longer than the dart itself?
I would tell you about why I'm asking this, but that would be one of those "can it be done?" posts, which is flame inducing. if that makes you mad-
I know this is half the kind of "asking and not doing" post that gets flamed, but I believe it is a valid question.
1: Please search before you post about things that have been tried before. This is nothing new
2: I got flamed (and due to some fatigued/pneumonia induced deliria, flamed back) on my first post since I came back to the forums, don't feel bad.
3: Everyone else, I think he gets the point. My instinct is to protect other noobs from what happened to me on my thread. Like Murakumo, I don't mean to backseat moderate, but this looks like a potential 'punching-bag' forum, like my meaningless one. Maybe let him off with a warning? If he posts another ...what about... thread, that's the point where the flames become justified.
"they" were the companies manufacturing Nerf-type guns, and I understand that they have engineers, but the engineers have more "cool-factor" (and safety) than power, in mind when designing the guns. Of course, they must be contract-bound to do this, since the idea behind Nerf sales is:
(as in all sales companies)
1. Make stuff look good to profit sales (longshot, max-force line)
2. Don't get sued (did someone say "DO NOT MODIFY' clause?)
Obviously, buzzbee puts functionality so far down on their to-do lists, and power is even lower than that, that the output is what they hope for it to be - safe for parents to let thier kids shoot themselves point blank in the head and not get hurt. Nerf is more powerful, less of a novelty/dollar-store toy, but it does seem a lot more fun to mod a cheap gun, not only does it have a lot of room to improve, but also it's disposable, cheap, and screwed up mods are easily just thrown away. I guess there is a positive side to worthlessness...
thus my currently most commonly used screenname: iSuck
We only have Assassin games out here. I wish we had wars. There is less paranoia and an equal amount of adrenaline there.
Wow, I just realized how much assasin games would ruin your life for a week with anxiety...
Their used to be wars at my own fucking high school during the summer and I had no idea.
I feel the same way... I joined just a little late. Still, fads come in waves. It pretains to the way things are usually adopted first by the oldest, then work their way down untill all the little 6-year-olds want whatever the colledge students wanted a week ago. Nerf waves typically start in the other direction, the little kid sees the add on TV, their grade-school brother hears about it from them, brings it to school, and tells his friends how awsome it is. Older and older people get interested, and for some it hangs on after being a fad, those people are the ones dedicated to boards like this.
Nerf, not only in the south (as the forum creater claims), is slowly moving towards its demise currently, if nerf makes something truly interesting, the wave could start again. Linking these ideas, I think we just need another Nerf fad-wave to bring Nerfing back to the South, and everywhere else where it's fading.
-just a thought... (off topic?-I'll edit)
Regardless, 40' is obviously way better than this gun could have acheived unmodded. Are the barrels seriously larger than the dart, that would just be stupid manufacturing/design.
--------------Slightly off topic, just thinking: wouldn't it be better though?-------------
Makes me wonder why they don't hire actual nerfers to design their guns. Even some of the forum noobs could make a better Nerf weapon-given the opportunity to use the company machinery. (Maybe they don't let us design nerf because we would end up with weapons of mass-foam-destruction)
Also, you dont want to ram it down very far from my understanding. Just getting a good seal inside the original barrel should be good enough. (I used duct tape )
The simplicity interests me. Maybe if you used a shorter air tank, you could make it detachable from the bed, and reattachable for when your done, so if you miss the first time, you can rush the 'intruder'.
Speaking of shotgunning, no one has told me if they've used my shotgun dart design in a homemade. If you want to try that (the barrel is certainly long enough) you can see the design here.
(Also, thanks for noting that it was a ball valve, I was trying to figure out what those quick-release kinds were called)
I have no idea what a LARP war is, but I'll look it up.
I forgot about epoxy, I see things on it everywhere, and still I'd forgotten It's the perfect plastic glue.
^recommendation: epoxy is awsome
I've had this broken bolt/cocking handle to a Tornado for so long, I will try epoxy on it, if it's not too mutilated from the 5 other coats of glue.
^don't make that mistake, use epoxy first thing, then maybe plastic welder.
Epoxy is the answer (thanks for reminding me). Plastic welder is cool sounding.
It works on jagged edges too, but if that one post meant shatterered pieces, cut a new one.
I don't own a Rev-8 yet.
Keep it that way.
I've tried one of these things, my 6 year old cousin has one. Modding it would bring it up to stock standards.
Honestly, this is a nerf gimmick to make a "laser-blaster" targeted for the little kids who play with nerf guns.
Stefans would fire out of it with AR removal, but, again, the power is minimal. Glowing suction-darts (excuse my reiteration of previous posts please) have very large tips, but are short enough for them to be set back in the turret.
Tagger darts are longer, so their large heads obstruct the annoying little beam that comes accross the revolver at one point to hold the center of the turret.
Even if taggers worked in this gun, the firepower and ROF value isnt worth the money.
