  1. Nope, none of their software on my machine. If that's all that file goes its either a mistake or malware; I'll run hijackthis and remove it.
  2. My primary computer crashes whenever we play a game on it, this had happened with Windows XP and is now happening with Windows 7 Ultimate (x64). I figured something was wrong with my XP but it is still happening every time. I went into the error log and it gave the following error before it crashed: "\SystemRoot\SysWow64\Drivers\bsofrwl.SYS has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver." I searched extensively on Google for that error and came up with virtually nothing. My system a custom build with the following hardware and is recently formatted (<1 week ago) with Windows 7 Ultimate (x64): AMD Athlon 7850 Black Edition (2.8MHz) NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT 4GB of PC2-6400 Memory Jetway HA06-GT Motherboard Standard, generic other stuff (integrated sound card, dvd drive, 320gb HD, ect..) I'm running AVG and Adaware as my protection software, I'm behind my router's firewall.
  3. Being a game developer is widely seen as a hardest area of programming, it is a pipeline dream 99% of programmers abandon after making simple games. I make simple 2d games in my free time and have no desire to do 3d due to the time it takes. It is possible though so give it a try. However, if you're "lazy as hell" you dont have a career of any sort ahead of you so that needs to be solved before you start anything else. If you won't work hard you will never become a programmer, simple as that. Virtually all games are made in C++, some in C. Java is almost never used for games because it is slow (the Java VM is written in C++). C++ is a hard starter language, but it is what I started with so it is definitely possible.
  4. 1 beep normally means no errors but it isnt universal, your motherboard manual has the codes and what they mean. This sounds like a motherboard error, I have a hard time believing that a processor would break, loose one core and not have catastrophic results. Try updating your BIOS.
  5. Try something like #include <iostream> #include <string> using namespace std; string filename; cin >> filename; filename = filename + ".txt"; cout << filename.c_str(); //c_str outputs the string as a normal char* format, you will need that to use it in most standard inputs. I just wrote that and have not tested it, but that is a basic proof of concept on how to allow the user to input a name and append an extension after it.
  6. Sorry if this thread is a bit old but the question has not been answered and I feel some things need to be explained. I think part of the problem you have is you don't understand why some things are happening. The reason your program appears to be blinking on and off is because nothing is stopping it, call the program from cmd.exe and you wont have any problems. Just type: cd "working directory with quotes" program.exe Mine would look like cd "C:\Users\Dan\Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\WindowsApplication1\WindowsApplication1\bin\Debug" WindowsApplication1.exe Now the program will run, give its console output and not close the window. Next up you need to understand the nature of the return command. The return command ends the function (or in this case the program), absolutely nothing runs if it is placed after a return statement. It is convention to use return 0 with a main() function, it becomes important later. Just know that when a function calls the return statement, it ends. Since console programs in real-world applications are designed to either not have a long term pretense or be ran form cmd.exe there is no "good" way to pause a console program from exiting. Using the Windows specific system call is the best way. I don't understand why cin.get is not working, try the following code #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main(int argc, char **argv) { cout << "Hello World"; cin.get(); return 0; }
  7. Thanks for the advice, I'll contact my manufacturer and update with details when I have them.
  8. I am looking to get a new processor for my ASUS UL50v laptop, it currently has a Core 2 Duo SU7300 with a max TDP of 10w. The CPU I am looking to get is a Core 2 Duo P8800 with a max TDP of 25w. What I am wondering is am I going to see power supply troubles with this since it may have to dissipate 15 more watts of heat. I have little concern over battery life since I always have it plugged in.
