  1. I just tripped over something in my room and thought I might make a topic here on HT. So I go through phases where I like my room pitch black with no sunlight for months at a time. It's typically just a winter thing. So my room is pretty big, I know where everything is most days. I do have lights in my room, but I hardly ever turn them on. I got a lot of technology up here, so my Xbone light lights up a portion of the room and of course my TV and lap top projects a lot of light. But when it comes to going to bed and shutting everything down walking like a zombie usually gets me to bed with no harm done. I really should get one of those blind folds that rich people sleep with. Holy crap, talk about waking up from a dark room then walking outside to the bright sun! It would probably help to clean my room. It's been almost a year... It's mostly just clothes and water bottles on the floor. But yea, I've always liked the dark and was never afraid of the dark even if I'm walking alone in a sketchy place which I have a few times; manhunts with friends is the best! Well, that's all I have to say, anybody else drown themselves with darkness?
  2. Post some picks and details about that epic sound system you may have in your trunk or what you dream on getting in the future! I had two twelves with 360 Watt setup in my old 2014 KIA SOUL which was pretty decent bass for my 1st one. But now in about 3 weeks I am getting a custom sound system put in the tire compartment of my new 2018 KIA Soul because not having any Bass at all is depressing. I wanted 2 15" Subs made by DS18, but as you can probably guess, I was told by several experts that anything over or near 2000 watts would destroy my car or be so expensive to get my car to run that much power and not to mention a few modifications would have to be made which would surly void the warranty. Which needeless to say the DS18 subs run at an RMS of 1500 or 2000 watts minimum, meaning a peak of 2500 to 3000. I am going to get: 2 Rockford Fosgate P3D4-12" 4 ohm 600 Watts RMS Subwoofers with the Rockford Fosgate Ultra Compact 750 Watt MONO Amplifier "FOST750X1BD" Eventually I will change the door speakers with JL Audio speakers or some other high quality audio speakers that can keep up with the defining loud bass the Rockford's will provide! I decided to not use a box this time; instead both 12" subs will be facing up in the rear tire compartment which should be a perfect fit for my sound system. Don't know where the amp is going to go at the moment, I don't want to mount it on the back of the seat again... I can't wait to feel that deep bass again (it will be deeper this time).. In case you didn't know a KIA Soul is like a giant box already, so you don't have to try to hard to get a good sounding sound system going! I'll Post some pics and videos when it's installed! https://www.rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/p3d4-12/
  3. I've had a few gamertags in my past, I don't remember all of them, but I do remember specifically that Halo 3 was the game where I created multiple accounts for boosting purposes. I've had multiple bans across two of my accounts for boosting, modding, and bad rep. There were a lot of variables that gave me the incentive to create a new gamertag after I had established a name for myself, but moving on to the topic of how may gamertags I've had. I've had 4 Xbox Live Accounts with a total of 5 gamertags. Xbox Live Accounts: TheRedEyedDevil xReaperOfDoomx Fatal Blitz x Superior Forger Gamertag Changes: TheRedEyedDevil BRICKxTRED TheRedEyedDevil Bans: Halo 3 - 2 week ban leaving every game Halo 3 - Permanent fileshare ban for uploading modded map Halo 3 - Multiple 15 minute bans for betrayals/quitting Halo Reach - 2 Week XP ban & Rank Rest for AFC-ing Firefight Halo Reach - Multiple 15 minute bans for betrayals/quitting Halo Reach - 2 Week XP ban for boosting Bio - 2 week ban from xbox live for "I like mods" in bio Bio - Gamezone set to cheater for modded gamerscore Clans: KSI (2008-2009) - Quit because they didn't allow T-Bagging DHG (Halo Reach Era) - Quit because they wanted me to change my gamertag to something with DHG in it. BRICK (2012-2014) Booted out after a 160 Car show was demolished by an unexpected Airstrike in GTA 5. Current - I no longer accept clan invites as I really hate the lame so called "Chain of Command and Ranks, Rules, and completely dumb overuse of control". I myself just like to forge stuff and am a loner in mostly everything I do. Of the thousands of people I have befriended over the last 7 years, I can honestly relate to the quote "Good friends are hard to find". My advice, if you like your freedom, don't anchor yourself down into some clan or group of people who just tel you what you can and cannot do!
  4. Posted a map "Eye in the Sky" needless to say the editor in which to upload a map is buggy. And I can't edit my own post. Lets talk the issues. Issue List: 1) Selecting a Map name is not obvious. I mean it says map name, but first time around I had no idea where to name my map. Maybe it's just me. 2) Text editor I understand is limited now, kind of takes away the flare that I like to add to my map posts, but I get it, nobody really wants to read map posts anymore. 3) Uploading Images - Once images are uploaded, there is no way to delete them, i.e. change the order in which they are displayed. Also uploading images should be specified a one at a time policy rather then figuring out how to use it with little to none direction. 4) Though I selected MCC, after the map post was created, it said Reach. 5) I hit submit post with just my name as the author "or map maker" and it didn't submit, so I went to add author, obviously couldn't find my name because I was already the poster, but that screen wouldn't let me back out until i selected somebody else "a second person" - which now as the map is submitted has two other authors that did not create the map. 6) Can't edit my own map post. I understand from the past why that might not be allowed, but when it comes to fixing things that didn't go perfectly planned the first time around. I think perhaps a time of edit in hrs before post is locked from editing should be put in place. Unless it's just a bug all together. That concludes a few things that I spotted without going to much further into details.
  5. I'm building one! This is gonna be a fun memory!
  6. Did everybody have a good Christmas this year. I certainly did. I got to do my favorite thing making homemade lasagna with my Papa and spend both Christmas Eve and Christmas day with my family. And of course the presents is a good bonus. Holy crapolla I got a lot of surprises this year Presents: Black Ops III Assassins Creed Syndicate Just Cause 3 Star Wars BattleFront Star Wars Han Solo mini-fridge 3-inch Foam mattress Pillow Bed Sheets Night Glasses Sleeping Mask Fedora Hat 17th Street Sweat Shirt Wallet Nutria-Bullet 2 Bandannas 2 Nice Shirts USB 3.0 54 pin Express Card for my laptop.

  7. Don't know about you guys but I've spent lots of money ordering fast food. Today I ordered a 12 pack of tacos, xxl burrito, #4 combo, 12 pack of delights, and 2 beef quaseritos from taco bell in one order for the family and it was $40. I wonder if your allowed to order over 100 or 200 dollars at a taco bell... Anyhow, I was just wondering what your biggest order was at a fast food restaurant.
  8. For 10 years now I have had a 32-bit pc and haven't had the luxury of power to making videos. They take all day on my pc with the little things that I put into making videos. I'm not looking to move into pc gaming, but I would like to play a few like roller-coaster tycoon and other simple ones without my system glitching up and so on. Technically I could play those games on my PC, I just have to turn a lot of shit off and it's a pain in the neck. So I'm looking to do more powerful video editing and learning new programs and so forth. I think a minimum 8gbs would do, but I'm pushing for 16. If you any of you have any recommendations it would be helpful. I don't now a lot about hardware or graphics cards and such to just build my own pc without other complications. I know pc's can get pricey as hell, but I would probably be willing to spend $1,600 - $2,800. on one. That's really pushing it though. Yea, so I have to save a bit more, but here is final verdict: Unless I get a 3rd job or a better job in the next few months, "still thinking about where I want to be". I can't buy this PC tell October-November this year, which isn't so bad. At least I will never have to buy another one.. I hope! Below are the specks of the PC I'm getting which adds up to $3,075. I must say It's not far off from expected in price.

  9. I'm up to 15 Mile runs, moving to 17 this Saturday. 6-8 more weeks and I will be at Full Marathon!

      hell yeah bother

  10. Running every Saturday! 13.2 Miles yesterday morning. Two mile increase every Saturday tell I hit my target max of 35 Miles. Four months ago I did the ultimate challenge for myself to push my limits and run 5 miles for 7 days in a row. It was tough towards the last few days, but I did it and I'd like to do it all in one day. I know from here lots of hard work, discipline, training, and mind over matter will get me to my goal!

  11. Oh, is there a majestical transformer hidden in that scrap pile?
  12. As far as game play/ Campaign experience: H3 H3 ODST Reach H2 H1 H5 H4 I personally Favor H3 and Reach Stories. H1 was good, but long and unfair in many areas of the game which made it frustrating. H2 was better, but still had areas of the Campaign that I didn't particularity care to play. H4 & H5 play-through was kind of bland (IMO). By Multiplayer: H3 is my all time favorite for matchmaking. Halo 4 and H2A are my favorites for racing and forge. Though a lot of cool things have been done with H5 racetrack creations, the physics however are not the best. I think Forge is cool, but I don't particularly care for they way they present Forge. And scripting is way to complex. One would think scripting could be so much more simple, I'll believe it when I see it!
  13. I'm going to forge one. Not looking forward to how long this will take, but thankful that it's a little more convenient.
  14. Voting Period is now closed.
  15. Demo Forge Off Voting Rules of Voting: Everybody that votes is required to vote 3 maps total. (3 Points for 1st Pick, 2 Points for 2nd Pick, and 1 Point for 3rd Pick. While this voting topic is open to anyone and everyone, (even Contest Forgers), it is preferred that voters voting have played these demotracks at least once. Voting will commence this week. Voting Period ends Saturday June 20th (11:59 EST). Raildoors Created By: NukedlceCream & Rob Chokes A fast and tight turning map with many blind corners. While the racer has an opportunity for a shortcut and a small window of opportunity to hide behind several golf balls to avoid complete blocker contact for a more difficult lap reset, the blockers have several crates that can be moved to assist in a blockade. Also, there is a risky cannon man to take out the opponent and more likely yourself, take in account the risk to reward. Reset Created By: xv Reflex II Another fantastic well thought out track by xv Reflex II. This track features fun traps that can be set by the blockers to ruin the racers day. Of course, if the racer does not fall for the obvious, you can bet that every lap will be a challenge from the many types of attacks available to fellow blockers. Enjoy the rainbow hall at a glance or a whole minute as this colorful landscape is a huge blocker attraction. Where death doesn’t hit you, time certainly will. Mt. Lelsuvius Created By: xDangles25x Another very cool map by xDangles25x built on a volcano where occasionally racers and blockers alike can find themselves in a lava pit. Very run route for the racer with two racer shortcuts, of which one has significantly more risk. Blocker shortcuts are placed well providing an advanced reaction to where the racer may be for a decent block. Spam Fritter Created By: Bean05 & Possante Train Station scenic demotrack. Features trains, boats, and automobiles. The main attraction where the trains are located is just what you would expect to see in a train station. This track flows nicely from the walkways to the train track itself. Blockers have ample opportunity to block on every section if timed right. A simple route with an appeasing aesthetical appeal. Artifact Created By: Superior Forger & Tote Trays A fast and competitive route that requires team coordination to really see its full potential. Main racer setback and whole purpose of the aesthetic appeal includes the crystal that shatters to oblivion when a racer is forced down the hole. This track was forged to enforce a “zero death” policy, so team work is best advised to make the best of what you are given.
  16. Voting Period ends Saturday June 20th (11:59 EST) Loved all the maps submitted, it's always a blast playing with you guys. I'd go as far to say these last two months, there has been a record of Demotracks created then ever before. It's a tough decision to choose spot #1, they are all unique and fun in their own design. Fantastic job to all forgers for making this happen! 1) Reset 2) Mt. Lelsuvius 3) Spam Fritter
  17. Voting Period open for H2A Demo Forge: 

     

  18. Working hard to get this BS sorted out with Pinnacle Studio 23. Look for Demo Voting Topic Friday night.

      In case you miss my messages in the shoutbox, I suggest you dump Pinnacle Studio in favor of Davinci Resolve. There is a free version that basically has everything. This is what I use, and what even major film editing studios are beginning to adopt. It has a node based compositor for FX work, excellent audio tools, and a color suite which is widely considered to be the best grading software in the business. Why more people aren't using this when Blackmagic is just giving it away is beyond me...

      Get you some:
