Do It Yourself – Make Your Own Computer Desk!

So its been awhile since my last blog post, but here is a project I’d like to briefly touch upon that I think most of you guys will get a kick out of it, unless you saw the youtube video already. 🙂

For the longest time, I wanted to build my own computer desk that was minimalist, while at the same time, had enough functionality to it so I could do a 2 workstation setup, which would work great for LAN play, or having another machine near by so I could do video tutorials easier.

A few weeks back, I did exactly that and had a lot of fun making my own computer desk. The total cost was less than $40 USD, using two file cabinets I had handy to make it as my stand, and then the rest of the desk was wood and hardware that I got at Menards.

See the video below to see my before and after, it is quite shocking!

How To Play LAN With Planetary Annihilation


Revisions:
10-21-14: Initial release


So I’m a big fan of total annihilation and supreme commander, so it was up my alley when I heard Planetary Annihilation was going to have LAN.

In the latest update, it does have LAN! Yes!

So how do you do LAN? It’s pretty simple:

1) Start the game.

2) Under the game settings, turn on the local server. This only applies for x64 bit machines.

3) Go to multiplayer, host a game or join someone elses game. When you host, make sure the visibility is set to public to other gamers can find you.

Note: If two players have the same username, when you join a game, it will disconnect the host from the client, and the client becomes the new host.

In order to fix this, you want to change your username. If you have issues with this, see my quick mini tutorial below:

1) Download a mp fix here.

2) Extract it into your x64 folder in your main Planetary Annihilation folder.

3) Start the game. Click Single player, and type in a username and password. Don’t worry if it says login fail, its not crtical.

4) Now go to multiplayer, and your new name has taken effect. Tell all your other gamers to do the same to get a unique name, and now you can have fun!

How To Play the Walking Dead PC with PC or PS2 USB Controller

So a gamer on my youtube channel told me that this game could not work with his non-xbox 360 game controller. I got the game, tested it with my PS2 controller with twin usb joystick adapter, and I too could not get it figured out.

In addition, many youtube videos show you about this dinput8.dll file, where you copy it into the root folder, and your xbox 360 game controller work. If you use the same file with your PC controller coupled with x360ce, well, it doesn’t work at all.

After some research, I figured it out. What you need is a “spoof” dinput8.dll and when coupled with x360ce, your game controller will now work with the game. The procedure is simple, but best exemplified with a video tutorial as shown below. Enjoy!

Wow, I Love Scrub Daddy!

Revisions:
9-5-14: Initial release.


So recently I have been watching old episodes of Shark Tank on youtube, where basically people (like you and me) pitch ideas to a panel of “Sharks” who then will decide if they will invest into that particular entrepreneur business idea or not.

From Shark Tank, I watched Scrub Daddy and I was intrigued. I got mine from Walmart today, and I love it!

Basically, its a sponge that is shaped as a face. When you put it into cold water, it turns into a hard scrub, but when you put it into warm water, it turns into a regular sponge! I love it, and it has no odors, it drys fast, and it doesn’t scratch hardware!

See the youtube video below for a quick overview. Most of the time I am skeptical of products I watch on TV, but man…I love Scrub Daddy! I am getting rid of all the old nasty sponges in my house and replace it with Scrub Daddy. It is not a gimmick. I have one myself and I confirm it is fuckin’ bad ass.

MW3 Dedicated Server Tools – Play Online for Free


Revisions:
1-22-14: Initial Release.


For the past year or so, I’ve known a pretty dark secret about Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 for the the PC platform.

Using the ~14GB Call of Duty MW3 dedicated server tools, in addition to install respective game update patches and using the TeknoMW3 program, you can play online multiplayer for free, without buying the game.

In fact, if you use an older copy of TeknoMW3 (v2.7.0.1) with an older patch of the game, you can play single player campaign, as well as spec-ops LAN!

Why does the dedicated server tool have both the single player and all multiplery maps (minus DLC)? I have no idea. What I do know is that this same method worked with the FourlDeltaOne (who no longer exists).

So what’s left? Using TeknoMW3, you can continue to play online and have your good times.

Want to see the video tutorial proving this? See below. Enjoy!
