On the off chance

Okay, having some City of Heroes problems.

Okay, until yesterday, I was able to get City of Heroes to load, but when I would play, I would be mapserved constantly, and rubberbanding just as often. Finally, I was offered this advice:

1. Please download Driver Sweeper at: http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?det=1655

2. Click on "Download Now" then select a location that you would like to download it from.

3. Scroll down on the next page; click on "I Agree" and a file download window will come up.

4. Click on save, then in the “Save As” dialog window choose Desktop as the “Save In:” location.

5. Once the download is complete, run the program or double-click on the file you downloaded to your desktop to install Driver Sweeper.

6. Choose all of the default installation options.

7. Once installation is complete, start Driver Sweeper either from the desktop icon or through the Programs Menu.

8. Within the Driver Sweeper program, check the check box next to the ATI Display driver from the list, also check any other display drivers you may have installed in the past on this machine. (Note: Please do not check any lines that say chipset)

9. Click the “Clean” button.

10. Once done, please reboot your PC if not prompted to.

11. When the reboot is complete, please download and install this driver http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=win7/windows-7-64bit


I followed the directions, and now when I try to load the game, I get this: Your card or driver doesn't support ARB_multitexture, then the game stops loading at all. I already told the support guys about it, but I was wondering if any of you lovely people had any advice for this completely not tech-savvy player who just wants to get back to breaking Skulls?


Also, for giggles:

Come on you poor unfortunate souls!

Someone please tell me that this is some kind of elaborate joke.

On a more rambly side, there really is nothing like starting to write in a fresh notebook. Just looking at those blank, clean pages fills me with delight at all the possibilties. On the other hand, there’s nothing more annoying than hauling around a notebook you’ve already filled up because you might get the chance to type some of the things in it up and don’t want to miss the oppertunity.

I have been good (in as much as I ever am about these kinds of things) and e-mailed both my mother and my brother (who has forgotten that he does have a Livejournal, or perhapse just the password for it).

In other news, I finally snagged an Autum egg. Aside from my Vampire, Orlock, this is the rarest egg I've ever gotten. Huzzah.

It's cold and rainy, and the moment I open my umbrella, it rains sideways. Ugh.

I finally watched the newest Nostalgia critic, so...



Anyway, last call for Christmas Fics. If you want to have me write something for you, this week is the last chance you'll get to tell me (at least, if you want a chance of seeing it posted before Christmas).

There are days when I think that I'm still alive only because I'm too lazy to kill myself.

Yeah, I'm in one of those moods, brought on by too much work, not enough sleep, and having to help put up holiday decorations at the shelter.

I think my mother's cell phone hates me (or, despite the fact that I was told to call her, she's not answering), and the number I have for my brother in painfully out of date.

Once again, I am over at Chelsea's. Once she's awake enough to be able to focus, we'll be watching I My Me! Strawberry Eggs. I love this show.

I've made a bunch more icons, which will get posted eventually, including a lot of Inhumans and Northstar.

For the record: No, the two white eggs aren't an accidental double post of the same egg.

I've been kidnapped by Chelsea once again. Today we shall be watching Hellboy 2, Kung Fu Panda, and possibly Speed Racer. So, no fics or icons getting put up today, unless I end up spending more time than I intend to hiding in Chelsea's room with her computer.

Please pay special attention to the first egg. It's only got 2 days left.

Your rainbow is strongly shaded black and gray.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

What is says about you: You are an elegant person. You appreciate mystery. You depend on modern technology and may feel uncomfortable without it. You may meet people who are afraid of you.

Find the colors of your rainbow at spacefem.com.


Less than 50 hits to go. I'm gonna go ahead and put the final poll up some time today.

Posted more fic and icons, of course. Tomorrow I'll probably be posting a metric fuckton of Trauma icons. This pleases me for some reason.

I never thought I'd like anything about The Initiative. I continue to hate the art with a burning passion... but I adore Terry.

There’s a vote up on dorksidefiker to see what my loyal readers want to see in honor of my upcoming 1000 hits (less than 100 to go!).

I’ve got 139 fics ready to post, and I’ve written all the fics I owe people, and just need to type the last two up.

One of the clients at work has managed to get herself knocked up, and insists that she’s going to keep this one. This woman has had three children taken away from her before, and if ever there was a poster child for sterilization....
