Recently, I bought these 8 DVDS, with 4 Gigabytes of storage on each of them.

But, what should I do with these things? Make CDS for my radio speaker to play?

Put games on the DVDS, and then run them on another PC?

I don't know what to do with these DVDS!

Dvd's? What are these... The zeroties? Online and NAS storage is where it's at nowadays. B-)

Honestly, I have no idea. My own pc's dvd player could be broken for years for all I know. After installing windows (ahem) and perhaps network drivers, I can't find a reason for them. Even Linux live dvd's. Yes, you can burn them and have a backup, but there's no advantage over a pendrive (which can also be re-used when a new version comes out).

Perhaps your original idea is the best. I have an audio player that can read mp3's on DVD 's. After burning at least a few dozen albums on a single DVD, I calculated that if you just press' play', it plays about 2 full days before it played the last one. :P


Erm... Perhaps a last suggestion, though a Nas would be better : subscribe to humble monthly, download every game you want from their trove (they're drm free games) until you hit 32 gigabytes - or have everything - and burn those to the disc's.

Okay, what about the comical option: use them as coffee cup holders?

At first I dismissed it as I imagined they'd be a bit too expensive for that, but then again...are they really? 4 GB USB drives are almost given away with cereal boxes, so surely an easy-to-scratch and somewhat outdated DVD disc can't be much more expensive (if anything, it should be cheaper. And going by a quick google that showcases things like 10 bucks for 50, it's not like I'm very wrong).

Take em back ask can you exchange them for a DVD wallet
That certainly does NOT invalidate the reason to have a DVD wallet in the first place! :creep:

    also it had some models for "mover" this and that and that is something Unreal uses for terminology
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I talked to this developer and when I revealed that, he stopped talking
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    mhm
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    probably because the engine got obtained via not a direct route and I suppose they didn't have a direct deal with epic and it was significatnly changed anyways
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but I saw what I saw lol. it seems to be still based on it just like proper metroid prime seems to be based on unreal warfare to some degree, the physics of the water are almost identical and other things
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    even if it became an "additive world" that actually was the default state of things in unreal until they changed it, and its still possible to hack it in any version of the game to not use subtractive model
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    additive world?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so yea i believe the routes point to the cancelled n64dd port of Unreal and whatever deal was left out of that, it was developed by the lemmings guy, DMA, well more like the branch that also developed hired guns(the cancelled ue remake), they got renamed to devils thumb iirc?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea...as in the world is additive..its all void and you have to place something in it to start..where subtractive world is filled with mass, with one giant "cube" that is a mass and you have to cut something out of it
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's how making levels for unreal work typically...but until version 0.84 it was additive by default
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    its still all constructive geometry though
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea..a lot of people have misconception how it really works with Unreal, they thought it was only subtractive but its not and the fan 227 patch shows that and allows you to choose between the two modes by making "new" map or "new additive" map
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    okay
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    it just does some magic with the bytes and makes it a void by default in one case where you have to add objects into literal void space and subtractive where you cut out shapes as everything is filled up by one giant cube in practice
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    so the subtractive model is actually a lie, the true default is additive
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    "haha, its a lie...you live in a tunnel? NO! "
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    sorry had to think of the Malkavian Mod for Deus Ex with that talking cat that breathes fire

    LOL

    @BigOnYa would updating my CFW change any files stored on the switch besides in the /switch directory?
