#2118242 SteamOS, are you going to try it?

Posted by Nephilumos on 01 April 2014 - 06:20 PM in OCC Weekly Polls

Ran Steam OS for a bit on a franken-computer in the living room..  q6600, gtx460, 8GB of 800MHz RAM that were all lying around collecting dust.  It worked fine, but the drivers weren't the best (I imagine they'll eventually fix this.).  Didn't get very good frame rates in most games.  Out of my 250-ish steam games, a respectable 78 were linux playable.

Ended up just modding a very basic windows install to boot straight to Big Picture.  All my games run fine now and I even have the Steam Music beta.

 

tl;dr
If you want SteamOS, just use a minimalistic Windows install in BP Mode.




#2110219 Star Wars™ : Attack Squadrons Open Beta

Posted by Nephilumos on 19 December 2013 - 07:58 AM in Gaming

I'm hoping this will be like x-wing vs. tiefighter was.  Man, I miss that game.




#2096728 Raspberry Pi

Hmm I to am curious as to what these can do. Anyone actually using one for something neat?

 

I don't know if you count SSH/DNS server as "neat", but that's what I use my Raspberry Pi for.

Grrr I was hoping to play 1.6.2 :P

And speaking of which!  We are now on 1.6.2!

Bump for update to servers!




#2086708 Networking Assistance Running Concurrent Minecraft Servers

Posted by Nephilumos on 28 April 2013 - 09:01 AM in Networking and Internet

Actually this can be done with a single public IP using virtual hosts (there are other ways but this is normally the simplest for people to understand and implement). How do you think web hosting companies host hundreds of sites off same IP and server? :)

Without more info about your setup and network infrastructure it will be difficult to help you set this up though.


Huh. I don't doubt your networking prowess, Nerm. I'll have to look into it a bit. Trying to wrap my head around how you'd do it while waiting for food at IHOP isn't working though lol.



#2086649 Networking Assistance Running Concurrent Minecraft Servers

Posted by Nephilumos on 27 April 2013 - 08:28 PM in Networking and Internet

Unfortunately, that won't work.  The only way you'll be able to pull what you're looking to do off is if you have 2 different WAN IP's, or "Public IP's".

Reason being, both of those names are going to resolve to your WAN IP without regard to your port.  Your A record won't have the option to change what port it's going to resolve to.

 

Edit: This is all assuming you're behind a NATed router, which most people are.




#2085976 Trying to setup DDNS

Posted by Nephilumos on 22 April 2013 - 07:57 AM in Networking and Internet

Update considered abusive means that the frequency in which your device is announcing its WAN IP to DynDNS can get your account temporarily banned. Consider dropping your check frequency to maybe once or twice a week.



#2085328 Do you use a NAS at home?

Yup. Two. Backup to one, backup that backup to the other.



#2083216 What are your favorite Linux distribution and desktop environment?

Posted by Nephilumos on 04 April 2013 - 03:44 PM in OS: Non-Microsoft

I'm the only Debian/KDE person here?? :whoa:

I guess that's why Linux is awesome.

(My second distro would be Arch...but its suuuper close to being No.1)

 

Edit:

Debian because it's what I learned on, so I just never gave it up.  KDE because I don't like pretending I'm using a Mac (lol gnome).

 

Arch because it's configurable as heck.  No one person's Arch install is the same as anothers :)

In the vanilla sense, not too much. There's the wither boss, some new types of blocks, trees, etc. It's essentially the same. My friends and I go on stints of playing it then don't touch it for ages. This server is fairly active this time around, though.

Yeah, Bukkit doesn't play nice with 1.5 yet.  It's probably going to be a while.  I can send you my 1.4.7 jar if you want to hop on.

Awh, and quartz looks so nice....I'm going to have to look into seeing how compatible these bukkit plugins are with 1.5.  Give me a couple days.

D'awww I dun wanna go through that hassle yet D:  it was just a redstone update, wasn't it?

Haha definitely. Once you've got a plot of land you'll be able to come back to it whenever and no one can mess with it.

I made mine into a portable ssh tunneling device. I'm not very creative.



#2078152 windows 8 for gaming desktop

Posted by Nephilumos on 25 February 2013 - 09:49 PM in Gaming

All the games that work on Windows 7, in all likelihood work in Windows 8.  That said, I've never had any problems with any of my 100+ games on Steam.




#2077101 When gaming on your pc what do you prefer?

Posted by Nephilumos on 17 February 2013 - 08:39 AM in OCC Weekly Polls

Headphones are more immersive.  Especially for games like Amnesia.
