When I was younger (early '90) I played a coin-up helicopter game regularly. It's 2D and you look down at the landscape and chopper and the landscape scrolls down so you fly "up" on the monitor. There were four kinds of weapons you could use, red (the default), blue (often most powerful and most used), green or yellow.
You could upgrade them so they got more powerful,and if you switched colors of your weapons by a power-up that appeared at times, you kept the level of upgrades so if you went from blue to red, red was as upgraded as it would have been if you'd used it as long as the blue before you switched.
I can't find it (I suck at using Google), so I hoped anyone here knew of it \o/

Three guys came two a small town and were looking for somewhere to sleep. They saw a house where it said "Room Available", so they asked the price and was told it was $10 per night per person. So they payed, got their keys and went to their rooms.
Later the owner came by and asked if there were any visitors, and he was told three guys had rented a room each. He asked how much they payed and was told $10 each. He said "Let's be nice to them, take $5 and give it back to them", so the clerk took $5 and walked towards the rooms thinking it would be hard to divide $5 on three guys, so he took $2 for him self and gave the visitors $1 each.
So now they'd payed $9 each, that's $27 total, plus the $2 the clerk stole becomes $29. Where's the last dollar?

I've been playing this game for a long time, and I just managed to pass 30k in points, and the last time I checked it was above 32k somewhere, then the next time I check the score, there was a minus (-) infront of the score :O And it was sinking. When I didn't manage any more, it was at -29010, so naturally, no high score placing...
Where is the logit in that? Any go an idea of what happened?

I've gotten hooked on photography. After I bought my first camera, a Canon PowerShow S3 IS, in desember 2006, I've been doing pretty much nothing else. Now I've had my new Pentax K10D for a little while, and it's wonderful.
So I'm trying to become photographer and I'm gonna study that to realize this.
All of the sudden, yesterday was a sunny beautiful day, so I took Rulle with me (a dog I'm taking care of) on a hike up the mountain behind the house here, and I took with me my tripod and camera to get some pictures of this absolutely beautiful place where I've lived for about a year now.
The panorama picture, image number 9 in this album, is from 7 vertical eksposure combined in to one image at about 35.7 megapixels (9206x3884) which I'm gonna order in about 140cm x 60cm :) Gotta love panoramas!
Eclipse is developed by a bunch of students as a project that lasted five months in total, the only update that has been released is to make it playable on lower spec systems with cards like nVidia GeForce 2.
The story and gameplay has nothing to do with the HL universe and looks nothing like it. It's a fantasy game where you control the young woman Violet from a third person perspective, but it's not like World of Warcraft or the Diablo series games, because you have to aim and move properly like in FPS games to survive and make use of your magical skills.
Unfortunately, it's a very short game, but it's good as long as it lasts, and after you've played through it, you get access to a mini game where you try to survice on one map as long as you can to get a higher score while enemies keep spawning to take you down.
Nothing more to say enjoy and be sure to download this mod and give it a go your self :)
If you like this kind of fantasy game, or the maybe first person variety, be sure to check out the upcomming Might and Magic game, Dark Messiah. Check the videos on this website. This game looks to be awsome =)
Map 2 in the fox vs. fooki loser's bracket, round 2, match 1 from the WSVG 2006 @ DreamHack Summer is up. Waiting for Google Video approval and PQ4.net mirror to come up. Google Video for blue vs. toxic @ Monsoon is available also.
These are one map per video both POVs switching in a follow-the-killer style.
Snoken have made a movie where a few fun scenes has been remade in BF2 and it's very well made, so it's a lot of fun. The scenes are from, or inspired by, movies like Monty Python and Finding Nemo among others.
After working all summer on their masterpiece entitled "Holocaust", the creation by Phrenic and Drugs-Bunny has finally been released.
Featuring frags, bores, tricks and quadruns by some known and some lesser known players in the QuakeWorld community.
Trailer is 37MiB, normal quality is 224MiB, high quality is 467MiB.
This movie is made in the memory of the russian Q3 server Q3.DEMOS.SU which was created on January 5th 2000 and terminated May 1st 2004.
Maybe you have seen the trailer that was released some time ago, and if you enjoyed that, you should download this movie. It's not a frag movie, so don't expect any frags. But if you like gaming movies in general, and Q3 this is a must-download.
Predicted is an EFF-KULT HL2DM highlightsmovie by Jager.
The movie contains frags by the Eala Freya Fresena ist KULT clan (m3z, ferdi, tobsen, fussel, Jager and honk) mixed in with tricks and curiosities now and then.
This is Jager's first movie, but you wouldn't know that by looking at it. It's a fast-paced movie with awsome and fun frags with good music that really puts you in the right mode and gives you a rush from watching it, so enjoy!
This is a Half-Life 2 fan movie where real life footage and ingame stuff is mixed.
Quote from the creators original post:
"I wrote my thesis about CGI/live action footage compositing which inspired me to produce a shortmovie with CG special effects. this movie was created by me in roughly 2 weeks, I spent 15 hours a day working on it and Im really happy with the result even tho I wished I had more time to improve it. I used content of the game Half Life 2 such as 3D models, sound fx and music made by Valve Software."
Resolution is only 320x192, but it lasts 9:25, so it's ok for it's size.
Update: The high resolution version is in 640x384 pixels, so it's quite a bit bigger than the low res. =)
This is a machinima music video by Paul Marino rendered in Half-Life 2. The music used is So Cold by Breaking Benjamin.
This is a great music video and it's very well made. The way Marino uses G-Man in this way makes it very powerful IMO and it totally blew me away when I saw it and it continues to do so whenever I see it. So if you like either Half-Life 2, machinima or simply music videos (in this case, it will help if you've played HL2 though), make sure you see this video!
This is version 1.1, so if you have the first release this has better faceanimation on G-Man as it's rendered in HL2 and not in FacePoser and captured with Fraps as it was the case with the first release.
I've uploaded the HQ WMV 1.1 (71.4MiB) version of this movie to FileFront to save some bandwitdh for Marinos site so take that in mind when you download ;) There is a LQ WMV 1.1 (20MiB) version, a HQ DivX 1.1 (60MiB) version and a PSP 1.1 (28MiB) version on his site, so if you want one of those, you have to go there.

Something strange happened while I played a practice match vs. gg|stormberg yesterday Never seen it before or heard about it happening, so I thought it could be interesting for others to see aswell. Could just as well be a common occurance ;)
Going to Finnmark Gathering a some hours drive away from here. gonna play Q3 and I only know of one other Q3 player that is actually going, so I might just win, or at least get second place ;) I'm not all that good at it ;) I get lots of nerves and I don't really warmup before more than half the match is over, and this happens on every map.
But I might not even get there if the bussdriver checks the date on my expired student-pass cause I'm extremely broke atm., so if I don't get any prices, I'm gonna have a really hard time getting home, cause all I can afford now is the trip to the event ;) Oh, the prices for Q3 are for 1st. price: 1.000NOK (121.69 EUR/159.52 USD) and for 2nd. price: 500NOK (60.84 EUR/79.76 USD).

I'm glad the site is back again. The best community site on all the web AFAIK. And I'm glad to see the old users returning and bringing back that good old feeling :) A big thanks to Sujoy for getting it back again and to Jolt for the hosting!
It's a new year, and I've realized I need to start embracing who really I am and who I want to be and try to make the two work together. I need to stop doing things half way and not step away from confrontation which is most likely the thing I fear the most. I've been closed up in my own world for the past 5 or 6 years, and it's starting to really affect my life now.
I've grown to accustom to living like this doing nothing and one of the things holding me back is the thought of not being able to do it as much as I do now (doing nothing that is).
This is all a big cliché really, but that doesn't make it less real. I mean, life is just a big cliché, but it's still real. Or so we believe.
Anyways. This is my new years resolution. I figured it's better to let it all out there as that makes it harder to break ;) May you all have a great 2005 and beyond.

Then you can try loading the subtitles by clicking:
> Load Subtitle... (or Ctrl + L)
> Browse to where you extracted the subtitle file
If everything is ok, you should be able to watch the movie now.
If you get an error saying you need to change the video renderer, you click:
> Options (or O)
> Select VMR7 or 9 (I had to use 7)
> Restart MPC and try loading the subtitles again.
Do this until you find the renderer you need to use the subtitles.

A GTA3/VC movie by me created from replays by Citizen|X, HurraTorpedo, O.C.H.N., primax and myself. It's mostly GTAVC though. It's not all just cool stunts, but also bugs and fun stuff that happens when you play =) But there are lots of stunts of course.
The movies soundtrack:
- The Mormones - God's Racing Lucifer's Chasing
- Apollo Smile - Thunder Box
- The Hives - Outsmarted
- Danko Jones - Get Outta Town
- Apollo 440 - Crazee Horse
The action in this movie is from August 2002 with me playing with two guys that lived in the same house as me. I made the movie clips then, but never completed the movie until now. It took up 20GB (25GB completed), and I need that space for a movie I'm gonna work on during christmas holidays.
Don't be to harsh on the frag action, cause we were (are :) quite newbies, and the movie is mainly created for our selves to watch, but I put it online cause others might enjoy it as well ;) And I hope you do.

This movie isn't entirely new, but it is, as far as I am concerned, the best CS movie out there. It has by far the best editing. Something which makes the video work very well with the soundtrack. The creator, sozou, has done a very very good job IMO.
This movie is a must have if you like gaming movies, which is why I post it as major. I am really surprised that it's not posted here all ready.
This is my first movie. I made in early December 2001. It's a bit big, but I hate when movies like this are low quality and you can't really see any details of what's going on, so I made it really high-quality. (HQ version is out, and MQ is online, but it looks better ;)
It contains frags done by me (abuze was my nick then) and primax which also is a member of CFU from a LAN held here in Tromsø.
