Call of Duty Black Ops 4 Blackout Beta – Is a Buggy piece of shit on PC

Unlike the multiplayer BETA on PC which worked flawlessly back in August this “game mode” and reason theres no single player in Blacks Ops 4, is a fucking piece of shit on PC.   It dont work.

Ive tried many times to get it to work but it just quits and wont start anymore.  Seems like the folks at “Beenox” want PC players to debug the game for them lazy cunts.

No Man’s Sky – Fix for being stuck in wrong galaxy after finishing the community event quest

Backup your save file before you do anything:
Type the following in the windows run dialog (Windowskey+R) to view the folder where your save game is located.
%APPDATA%\HelloGames\NMS\

Make a copy of the folder inside you should see a folder beginning with st_<bunch of numbers here>
eg “st_700045453”

Your NMS save file is located in; “C:\Users\windows_username\AppData\Roaming\HelloGames\NMS”

Wrong galaxy:
If the No Mans sky CE (Community Event) put you in the wrong galaxy after doing the quest heres how you get yourself back to the galaxy you were in. Example I was teleported back to “Euclid” galaxy when it should have put me back in the galaxy i came from the “Budullangr”.

Battlefield 1 – Epic Music – Zajdi Zadj- Dawn of A New Time

Battlefield 1 came out last November and its a great game, i havnt had time to play it till this weekend.

I was playing the “War Stories” and there was a piece of music that really stuck in my head, its an incredible piece of music.  The hairs on my neck were standing and this tune is incredible.

I need to do more research to see if DICE or its a folk song, either way its amazing.

This song deserves a really great video tbh.

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.

Bioshock 2 PC Version Plagued with problems

Bioshock 2 has been a real dispointment for me, the huge problems with Games For Windows Live causing crashes when you start the game. This has ruined the game for me.  Spent more time trying to fix the game than play it.

Thats not to say that its a bad game but on the PC is just not the game it should be, too many problems with Games For Windows Live and loading problems make it not work playing.

  • The long long long load times.
  • Crap support and rubbish patches.
  • The graphics look dated or something not as good as you would expect for the PC Version.
  • Complete waste of money and time.
  • Games for Windows Live keeps crashing the game very common issue

A quick visit to the steam forums and youll see the nightmare this game is get it for the Xbox or PS3 cause the PC Version is a terrable waste of time and money.

Acer Aspire One – Fixing No Boot Problem

acer-aspire-one-blueA friend of mine has one of these very cool looking notebooks running Windows XP. However it developed a problem in that when you turned it on, nothing happened, you could however hear the hard-drive working away like it was loading up windows and then stopping.

After trying out the notebook on a PC monitor and trying to find a USB or network cable to use to connect to another working Laptop nothing seemed to work. So i said id take it home and mess around with it, messing around meant id try to get it to work even though i had no idea.

The first thing i did and always do when there is a problem with anything is i Google it. So off i went to google and typed in;

“acer aspire one wont turn on”

Simple really i typed in the exact name and model of the notebook and what was wrong and the first result lead me to a site which had a fix;

Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery
