Call of Duty – Modern Warfare Remastered – Supply Drop Guy

Firstly Activison adding supply drops to Modern Warfare Re masted is shitty, scummy and typical.

 

 

Anyway when i seen that supply drops had been added to the game i seen the guy they added who gives them out is none other than irish actor and ex-glenroe man Timothy V. Murphy.

Hes been in a tonne of programs since Glenroe of course.

Rainbow Six Seige Connection Problems Error 8-0x00000052

If your getting this error and you cant connect to the Rainbow Six Seige Servers its most likely a NAT issues.   If you check the options menu when the game starts up it probably will say “NAT type Strict”.

You will need to port forward to fix this issues;

2. Ports
If following the steps above to update and configure your firewall does not resolve the issue, it will be necessary to forward ports. You will need to forward these ports to your computer’s IP address for the best possible connection:

Uplay PC:
TCP: 80, 443, 14000, 14008.

Game Ports:
UDP: 6015

You will need to forward the port 6015

Cakephp 3 Plugin – Changelogs

Ive finally gotten around to releasing this little app i was working on for Cakephp3.  I decided a while ago to abandon Cakephp 2 and go with the new version 3.

Its been a steep learning curve so i wanted to learn as much as i could.  So thats where this app/plugin came in.

The Aim:
The goal of the plugin was to allow a way to simply log tasks, changes or articles about the cakephp project your working on.

If your working on a website/project on your own you need a way to record your changes and tasks so i thought this would be an ideal way to learn and release something. Sure you could do the same with Github and better but i think its better to have something like this integrated into your application.

CakePhp3 – Date Formating and Timezone

23666Quite simply this is a pain to set right, as it seems to default to the american time zone despite several efforts to configure it to european time in both Cakephp3 and the Php.ini file.

But you can display the needed time format as follows in your view action;

Below the field “created” is a date field in a MySQL Database.

Edit;

To set the timezone of your application you need to go to the config/app.php

Change below as follows;

This wont change the default display of dates but will set the dates to be displayed in the locale you desire.

No Mans Skys PC Possable Stutter/Hitching Fixes

Found this fix for the game on reddit which seems to fix the terrible stutter problems that people are having;

https://www.reddit.com/r/NoMansSkyTheGame/comments/4xgw82/pc_users_incredible_fps_fix/

The Fix:
Is to create a shortcut to the games executable file “NMS.exe”.  Then in the target window paste the following;

C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /c start “Process Monitor” /High “E:\GOG Games\No Man’s Sky\Binaries\NMS.exe”

Note:
Replace “E:\GOG Games\No Man’s Sky\Binaries\NMS.exe”with the path to game on your system.

EDIT:
This fix doesn’t work for me and in fact seems to make the game perform even worse, its best to update to the “BETA / Experimental” Patches available on Steam and GOG.
