To download the Xfire program or read up on it, see: http://www.xfire.com Xfire has nearly 8.5million users and supports over 700 games from Windows Minesweeper to games such as Call Of Duty, Need For Speed: Most Wanted, Counterstrike, WarCraft, The Battlefield Series and Sims2 just naming a few. Basically if you game on your PC, Xfire can help, its for this reason the clan has been made, to bring DIY Street together as a gaming community. To view our Gaming Clan Home Page, (Our independent clan pages will come soon): http://www.xfire.com/clans/dfistreet/ To Join use the Xfire-[DIY] home page(^above^). Who's Who Wevsspot..............................Clan Organizer Come and join us, support your forum and our gaming community!! We want to hear your ideas so any questions, problems or suggestions please get in touch. PM email or post in thread VENTRILO SERVER INFORMATION Server: Diy-Street Hostname: Port Number: 4512 You don't need a mic + Vent, but really...you'll be the only odd person out that won't be using it which means you'll have to type in the game which means you probably won't have as much fun or get as much info etc. HAMACHI GAMING NETWORK INFORMATION Hamachi Network Name: Angry_Games Network Pass: games UDP-TDP Ports: 32804 Once you've installed Hamachi, go into Network Connections - Advanced - Advanced Settings and make sure you move the Hamachi adapter to the top of the list (some games will use the LAN IP of the first available adapter, so you want Hamachi to be the first). Once you are on the network, hit the Configure Hamachi button, then choose preferences, then under Detailed Configuration (in the middle), put a check box next to TCP and UDP ports and set them for 32804. Port-forward your router/firewall accordingly for Port 32804 for both TCP and UDP. Next, remember that when hosting a game, other players will need to connect to your Hamachi IP address if they don't see the game automatically (as if they were on your LAN next to you...some games like RS Vegas and others will see all LAN games hosted, some, like Sins of a Solar Empire, you'll have to manually input the IP of the game you want to connect to). To do this, make sure you know the Network's IP address: You shouldn't need to do anything more than this. If you do, just ask here. I'm adding this to the first post for everyone.

    [DIY] Gaming Clan

    Hi all, I think its gonna be a while till I play enough to really support DIY clan and to be a good leader, so I stand down and happily pass the buck to wevsspot who was the original brains behind the outfit anyway. I'm not retiring from gaming or DIY street (as long as your happy to have me xD )I just got alot of other commitments recently, I have enjoyed the past year of gaming and look forward to seeing the clan increase and expand in the future. Cheers (was that informal enough xD )
  3. Yes after years of talking and thinking about it i decided to put my money where my mouth was and get stuck in! How wrong can it go?? (:tooth:) Got a shedload of gear from thermaltake/dangerden/aquaxstream/waterchill and much more :confused: I'm a damn hoarder! Im not promising the best build guide or paticularly the cleanest but it should provide some light entertainment :eek2: for your viewing pleasure!!!
  4. 1. Radiator I have 2 rads a thermochill 120.3 and black ice 240 2. Reservoir I have 3 -2x Thermaltake and one Alphacool but I fancy having 2 - one in bay and one custom-made inside my case 3. Pump I have an Alphacool Res/pump but thats a bit lame so I'll probably use the AquaXtreme 50z pump I have 4. Water blocks CPU - I have 3 - Waterchill, DangerDen TDX and AquaXtreme MP-05 Pro again I would use the TDX but its had a muppet trying to lap it ( no the muppet isn't me this time :tooth:) and so I think I'm gonna use the AquaX. GPU - I have I think 2 DangerDen Maze 4's I think but will have to check NB - I haven't one believe it or not :tooth: so will be looking for your advice!! 5. Tubing. I have Tygon that was used on of my friends for only a month so I'll use that it unless its "leaky" (is that even a word?) 6. Fans. As you can tell I really am a hoarder i have loads- 120mm i have 3 Arctic Cooling, i have 4 Aluminum Evercool of and also 4 Pabst. I could really do with some maps for sequencing this lot I am researching like mad so hopefully will update this soon but any ideas thoughts would be much appreciated!

    Hellgate: London demo released!

    I liked the game! London is looking nicer joking aside it works but not earth shattering if it was the beta version i'd be more impressed not really held any wow factor nothing we haven't seen before which is upsetting considering how eagerly anticipated this game was!

    World In Conflict: multiplayer tester/reviewer(s) needed

    I got this game. Controls are pretty simple and well laid out in comparision to C&C. The story is quaint?!? (alec baldwin adds depth) Explosions ie airstrikes mortars and missiles are beautiful my new game! well kind of as i got DiRT at the same time and the single player section comes with custom missions

    OMG xp defrag or what?

    I'm having a right old battle at the mo with a "reputed PC firm" who has stated to a friend "The NTFS File system sorts out files automaticly, defrag is only needed very rarely, and windows will recommend you when you need to run it" :eek2: WTH i know NTFS is better a storing large amounts of data than the former FAT32 but its all automatic? I guess he is referring to the fact that xp has auto cleanup function which I hold as much faith in as george bush taking my next set of exams!!:tooth: I believe in this day and age with the xp's cleanup are not only out dated but hacked half end products from the nineties anyway! so have I been wrong for the last 3-4 years recommending and searching for alternative products?

    29 years old in 9 days time!! (August 1st) No not a happy birthday im way to close to 30 and im not ready to grow up yet!
  21. I was doing my usual trawling of the depths of the web and stumbled upon this VisionTek XG6 Gaming Mouse 3D you can move the x, y, and z axes which for cad work (or google sketchup for me lol) is impressive its also programmable for the WASD keys for gaming which for fraggers has to be a bonus and for $60 seems quite concerningly reasonable, Oh my question? has anyone had some experience with this mouse? (b4 i spend out ) http://www.visiontek.com/store/catalog/pro...products_id=126 lol, just found out its re-branded to visiontek by sandiotech http://www.sandiotech.com/product.php Where they sell it for $80 (go figure?)
  22. DuTcH


    I have a g7 wireless but prefer my saitek GM3200 its for big handsnice and wide upto 3200dpi which is good for sniping as well as switchable pads and customizable weighting and all programmable with on-the-settings. Althou a new breed of 3d mice seem to be coming out!

    [DIY] Gaming Clan

    Yep I still have that title (the original) there are similarities and it was definately a classic, but if you play the demo you'll understand by the unique gameplay aspect lots of fun(not just for gamers keen on gaming titles ending in LORD ) :tooth: Company of Heroes has been on my list for a while now will have to get round to it, BUT no demos as far as I know Any one else play it?
