Little Big Adventure - Twinsen's Adventure (Relentless) - Finished playthrough

Little Big Adventure - full playthrough

Source wikipedia:

Little Big Adventure is an action-adventure game developed by Adeline Software International and first released at the end of 1994. It was published in Europe by Electronic Arts and in North America, Asia and Oceania under the name Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure by Activision. Over 400,000 copies of the game were sold worldwide in the first release. The game was initially released on CD-ROM and some time later on floppy disks; the CD-ROM version featured full motion video, music and speech whereas the floppy disk version has MIDI music files and still images to replace the videos. The game was later ported to the PlayStation, and released in Europe and Japan. A sequel was released under the name of Little Big Adventure 2 (also known as Twinsen's Odyssey).

Part 1:
Part 2:
Part 3:

Been a fun game to play again, bringing back some good memories. Never actually finished the game when I played it back then and now I can say I did :-) Towards the end in the last part it became a bit of a pain at moments. Some bugs, some missing hints/clues and a seemingly un-beatable monster fight. Would rate it a 7 out of 10. Could have scored better if it wasn't for the frustration it started to give me in part 3 of this playthrough.

Yay for good ol' times ...

Little Big Adventure, full playthrough part 3

Tonight I will be streaming more Little Big Adventure on Twitch. Might be able to finish this playthrough of Relentless: Twinsen's Adventure, just not sure how much longer it will actually take.

I will be streaming the sequel, Little Big Aventure 2: Twinsen's Odyssey as well, but most likely not before next weekend. I want to play/stream something else first.

Come pay a visit if you like, you are all more than welcome ;-)

Broadcast page fixed

Fixed the broadcast page because the embed code changed links from Justin TV to Twitch TV. The dual stream video/chat embed should now properly work again. You can watch any two Twitch channels at the same time! Not sure if this still works for JTV channels, but I doubt it, so stick to Twitch channels only.

Life's a Twitch

So yay, back to streaming and Twitch has not changed a frikkin' bit. Chat is being a pain. The delay is even worse now or should I say terrible. Their buffers can't seem to handle anymore, resulting in the video having to load all the time ... OMFG, please Twitch, start fixing things and invest in some good quality servers!!! Seems like they don't really give a fuck and instead of fixing things they try to up the load on their servers resulting in all this kind of bullshit. Way to go, why not get even more contracts and built in streaming apps on whatever platform or game, so the load gets even worse. Ain't it sweet to have sort of a Monopoly on streaming games ... * sigh *

Starbound: another update and Bug video

Starbound has yet again updated, but no wipe though, although still recommended to start a new character. I decided to continue on the Universe we were playing on lately unless we all want to start over.

I will start a new character myself though after what happened last night it doesn't seem to matter much anymore. Have a look for yourself:

TeamSpeak/Minecraft and Starbound

Both the TeamSpeak and Minecraft server have moved and now have a new IP. There was hardly any down-time, so I am pretty happy about that. Ways to join both are still the same since I use a DNS.

Starbound has yet again been updated! No wipe this time though, but to fully experience the new patch, it is recommended to start a new character. To prevent incompatibility with the server, I would advise to turn off the auto-update feature for Starbound on Steam!

Rockstar hosting is moving

We will be experiencing some down-time while Rockstar hosting is moving. This means that my Minecraft server and the TeamSpeak may be down for a couple of days. All for the better though and no worries, we will be back on as soon as possible. Thank you all for your patience.

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

Starbound update!

Sadly enough, the last update wipes characters, but this was to be expected as the game is still in beta. The Starbound server I am running right now has been updated and cleared as well. We will have to start completely fresh again!

Monday, December 9, 2013


For now running a private server for Starbound. If interested to join, let me know and I will consider giving you the details to join. Let's have some fun ...

Project Pixy: Looking for applicants!

Project Pixy, the new and upcoming Minecraft server will be all about projects as the name implies. Here we will only work on building/creating games, adventure maps or special builds in creative mode. We could be working on different projects with their own set of mods and plugins or even vanilla. This means there will be different client/server setups used depending on the project we're working on. This way we keep mods/plugins as limited as possible to allow for easy install once a project is finished and uploaded for the public.

The server will be white-listed only with very limited access!

For those interested to join, make sure to fill out your application on the forum.

Myst and sequels ...

I am planning to stream a full play through of Myst and all the sequels (Riven, Exile, Revelation, End of Ages and URU: Ages beyond Myst) on Twitch TV some time soon. I might play some Myst Online URU Live after that as well as the RealMyst releases. It's the Myst 20th anniversary anyway, right? So check my Twitch channel and follow if you are interested to see me struggle through all of them soon.


Rust is an open world MMO zombie survival game designed by Facepunch Studios. It takes inspiration from games like DayZ, Minecraft, and STALKER. To survive in Rust you may choose to work together with friends and strangers, scavenging for supplies and building giant bases, or go at it alone, killing other players for loot. Rust aims at being a game that gives players the freedom to play the way that they want, and that doesn't involve a hero and bandit system. With Rust, you will have to use your instinct, not a humanity number, to figure out if you can trust people.

I am playing this game now and so far I truly enjoy it. For a game that's still in alpha development, it's absolutely great fun to play already and well worth the $20.

To buy, go here: Rust and click the 'Auction' button. For now they only sell 500 Steam keys a day.

Wish to join me? Get on TeamSpeak and I will give you some more info.

Capture card or TV tuner?

I am looking into a way of capturing my PSX or PS2 to be able to stream from my computer. For this I would need either a good TV tuner or a capture card to get the analogue signal (composite AV/S-video). I did order a converter to get to VGA to be able to play on a monitor. My PS2 can play most my PSX games as well, so I would be able to use component. Could possibly also achieve component signal from my PSX with the converter I ordered by using VGA to component. Just wondering what would be the best way to go about this. What would be minimum requirements to get reasonably good results? Of course I also wonder about costs. Found some solutions ranging from $80-$800. Just need a way for my computer to capture the signal, preferably in h.264 format. Any suggestions?

Castle Wars

    Lately I have been taking a break from streaming partly to be able to work on the game mechanics for one of our games on Fun Paradise III. It took me quite some time to get it all to work and mostly to code the computers that control everything. Had many a brain ache to solve unsuspected issues and find ways around those. However, Castle Wars is now reaching completion and we will soon be able to play for real!
    Castle Wars, is a game Yoomanyoo and I have been developing. It's a game where 2 teams build their fortress with traps and then fight each other in three rounds. Players get to choose their building/fighting skills. This has been built on my modded server Fun Paradise III and therefor allows for some neat features and compact game mechanics.

Another new stupid Twitch feature

    Recently discovered another new feature on Twitch TV chat. Seems like any viewer is now able to show deleted messages in the channel chat. All you have to do is click the <deleted message> to show what was actually said. Why oh why??? Those messages get deleted for a reason! Why on earth would Twitch decide to make them show? Yet another stupid feature implemented, totally useless and risky. What if there was a link showing that leads to a porn site or download for some virus? Now viewers might get tempted after all. What if there was some really abusive chat? Viewers can now see it anyway...
    I run a chat bot to purge those links being sent to my channel to prevent anyone from getting into trouble or being re-directed to some sick or inappropriate site. Repetitive characters, emotes, or stupid chat interrupting ascii art also gets purged by my bot for a reason. So now another viewer can just click the <deleted message> and copy some nice artwork with characters that spreads across 15 lines to use for another channel? Abusive chat or anything being said that doesn't fit my rules gets deleted by my moderators or me as the channel owner myself. I decided I did NOT want to show any links posted without permission. I want my chat to be clean and respectful. Now Twitch is making decisions for me instead and tempting viewers to see whatever was there anyway. What the fuck is wrong with you guys at Twitch? I never asked for this and it will make my bot pretty much useless since curiosity is human nature!
    Now if this would just work for moderators and channel owners, I might perhaps understand. Just to check if the timeout was actually reasonable or maybe to report after the message having been purged. However you don't even have to be logged in, anyone can make it show. Not happy, once again.

Moving away from Twitch, please sub to me on YouTube!

    I am so fed up with Twitch TV that I decided to move away from Twitch TV as soon as possible. Old problems like the chat and server capacity have never truly been solved and I strongly dislike most of the changes that Twitch decided to push. Streaming quality is now worse as ever resulting in losing connection to Twitch servers and frames being dropped on their end. Chat is usually derpy as fuck. They still can not deal with big Live events going on. The list is ongoing as for streaming to Twitch TV.
    As a viewer there is partly the same list, but also the fact that streaming quality is not as supposed to be and now way more resource heavy as well since the changes. Where I used to be able to watch 1080p perfectly ok, I am now not even capable of watching 720p (high) without flash telling me the video seems to 'stutter'. I am thus forced to watch supposedly 480p (medium) settings. Those settings pretend to be even more about quality compared to the old resolution settings. Therefor there was no need to even change this. However this has been Twitch's reasoning for pushing those changes.
    As for the looks of Twitch, they promised to listen to the community, but instead forced us all into the new layout, which has SOME inprovements, but is mostly terrible. Just the info section alone sucks terribly and has been downgraded to limited markdown where it used to be HTML 4. Page load is even longer now and causes all sorts of problems. Some problems even persist until you clear your cache, which should not even be needed in the first place.
    All in all, ever since I was forced to move to Twitch in June 2012, I ran into all kinds of bullshit problems with promises for them to be fixed. Instead of fixing things, the main problems still exist and the amount of problems and bullshit has only increased. I have been patient for a long time hoping for things to get better. I am fed up now and do NOT wish to continue streaming on Twitch TV anymore. They make shit loads of money, but this seems about all they care for, instead of spending it 'wisely'. Even though the community on Twitch is great, I do realize there is no true 'good' alternative with such a wonderful community, which is main reason for everyone taking their crap. I have been looking into alternatives and my best option would be to go to YouTube instead. As soon as I get 100 subscribers on YouTube, I will be able to start streaming there.

So ... PLEASE SUB TO ME ON YOUTUBE, so I can move away from Twitch TV and enjoy streaming again.

Update to the Broadcast page

Finally got to work on the 'Broadcast' page/tab. Been planning to make some changes for quite some time. For now I rearranged the video and chat to show two channels side by side and the chat below. Text input fields now allow you to change channel one or channel two on the go after clicking the button next to it. Still thinking of using the full screen and have some auto-re-size feature and options for selecting the amount of channels to show. For now I am happy with it. It enables watching dual streams :-)

TeamSpeak and Minecraft are back up!

The servers seem to be back up again. Sorry for the inconvenience and downtime. Lets continue to have fun ;-)

Saturday, October 12, 2013

TeamSpeak and Minecraft

Both the TeamSpeak and Minecraft servers are down at the moment. The host is working on fixing it and hopefully we will be back online soon again. This means I can not stream on Twitch TV either until this is resolved. Apologies for any inconvenience.

LUA program for ComputerCraft to send server messages

Today I updated a quick program I made to be able to send server messages to the Minecraft server. It uses an Advanced Computer and a Command Block. Of course you need to enable Command Blocks in the file and in the config file for ComputerCraft. The program actually consists of two programs. One is the 'startup' program to actually send the server messages and the other is the 'Broadcast' program. This last program will ask you on which side of the computer you place the command block, how many messages you want it to send, what the messages are and at what time interval you want the messages to be sent. Those variables are then stored in a file called 'Variables' and it will run the 'startup' program. The 'startup' program will check if the 'Variables' file is available and if so it will run using those variables. If the 'Variables' file is not available it will run the 'Broadcast' file to ask for the variables needed and then store them to run 'startup' again. The file actually sending the messages is of course called 'startup' so it will continue to run even after a server restart. To stop it from running and change the variables, just hold <ctrl> + T for a few seconds to terminate and then run 'Broadcast'.

Here are the pastebin links for both files needed:

Click below (read more) to read the full code for both files.

Fun Paradise III - Notice

The server problems seem to be fixed for now, just not sure what will happen once we try using solar panels again. Since I do not have access to the TCAdmin Web Console at the moment, there is no way to control the server. I can only get access to the file system for FTP backups. Until problems with the control panel are solved we just have to keep our fingers crossed the server does not start crashing again.

Fun Paradise III - NOTICE !

The Minecraft server might be down for a while considering I have been awake for way too long and desperately need some sleep, while the server crashes on IC2 > Bad timing ... *sigh*, but I will try to fix it as soon as possible. Currently uploading a backup while looking into the problem. Please be patient and my apologies for the down-time and disappointment for not being able to play for now. Truly hope to have it back up soon.

Updated TwitchTV IRC mod

Update September 28th 2013

Updated the install guide and changed links to the reborn 'client side only' mod TwitchTV IRC. This version should fix the login with Twitch chat with the new OAuth password needed. Go check it out here:
To get your OAuth password for Twitch use this link:

Report bugs/errors with any of the mods in this pack by replying to this post.

Fun Paradise III is off to a great start

The new server is really doing well and I am very happy about how the server is holding on and all the people joining. At the moment we have 22 players white-listed. We seem to be getting at least one player each day to join us now. Big thanks to those who joined recently and of course thanks to Rockstar hosting. I am definitely enjoying it so far and glad we decided to open up the server even though Bukkit is still not fully set up. With this group and the server running great, it's prolly the best server experience I have had so far. We only just started, so hopefully it will only get better :)

What is wrong with Twitch?

    I am not going to talk about everything that is wrong with Twitch, because my list is quite long to discuss all that, but lets talk about two things I recently noticed.

    Twitch IRC login - Why could I not log in to Twitch IRC anymore some days ago? Why did I have to spend about an hour to find out what was wrong? Is it really that hard to send your clients a notification about changes that have been made? So I was searching Google to finally find this link that explains why I could not connect anymore. Not sure why this change was needed and to be honest, I don't even care anymore. I am kind of fed up with all the changes we have to deal with and to be honest, things do not even seem to get better, just worse or smartly hidden. Next time just come with some official announcement or at least send a notification to your clients!!!

    Twitch R9K spam filter - Say what??? Yes, R9K chat spam filter. Some stupid, buggy and for Twitch totally useless crappy spam filter for the Twitch chat. This is a filter that tries to match identical or similar messages being sent to the chat if containing more than 9 characters. This spam filter is still in beta development and based on the ROBOT9000 project which is used in 4chan. This bot is basically trying to reduce the 'signal' to 'noise' ratio. I won't go into full detail on how this bot actually works, but I do not believe that any spam filter can actually control big Twitch channels and make chat coherent and chatters behave. Having R9K will most likely turn it into a game of its own, making things even worse. I do feel that the broadcaster and moderators have a task here in the first place anyway since we are dealing with 'humans' (usually) and they have to set an example on how the chat is supposed to behave. Channels that lack competence in this will end up having a terrible chat which no bot can fix in my opinion.
    What I noticed the last few days is Twitch admins joining some of the bigger channels and turning on R9K mode without letting the broadcaster know. Next thing is viewers/chatters who notice messages not being sent resulting into negativity and questions. Then a discussion starts about this R9K mode and broadcasters/moderators actually not having a clue what is going on or how to turn this 'chat mode' off again. Supposedly there should be a way to turn it off, but I have not been able to find any information on how to accomplish this. Chatters now start trying out this 'chat mode' resulting in a totally off-topic chat next to the stream. Since this R9K mode is buggy in the first place, a lot of messages are not being sent. All-in-all, once again, some STUPID move on Twitch's behalf. No notification or announcement on any of the official pages or whatsoever. Sneaking into channels to turn them into some 'test case' and not even a way to turn this stupid - prolly meant to be great - new feature OFF again.

I truly miss the good old days where we were still a great community having a feeling we were all working on making it even better TOGETHER. By now the community has completely separated from the staff with their 'we don't give a fuck what our community thinks' attitude.

If only there was an alternative ...

Fun Paradise III now open to public and FREE!

The new Minecraft 1.5.2 server is now officially open to the public! However new players who wish to join still have to go through the application process to get white-listed. I made a decision to make the server completely FREE to play on, even though I have to pay for having it hosted. Donations are therefor really appreciated but not mandatory.

If you wish to join, go to the forum and check the 'New Server' topic for the 'Applications'.

Hope to see you soon :-)

Have fun!!!

Minecraft 1.5.2 server now open to the public (white-listed)

The modpack for the Minecraft 1.5.2 server has been updated for a last time. I have also added a full Installation Guide to the forum with all the download links. The server will be officially open to the public as of now even though the Bukkit plugins/permissions still have to be done. It's just time to start having some fun and get some players to join.

Underhell and more ...

Been some very long nights streaming Underhell on Twitch TV. Had a bit of a rough night last night and still not feeling too well. Making some highlights on Twitch right now to possibly upload them to YouTube later. I should however call it an early night if I want to keep those headaches from coming back. So sorry, feel guilty for another two nights of not streaming, but I need to get well. I should be back tomorrow though, to do some last things in 'The house' in Underhell and wrap this game up for now until the release of the next chapter. Hope everyone can forgive me, but if I don't get some time off it will prolly make things worse. Early night for me and hopefully back fresh tomorrow.

Applescal - Dreaming In Key (2013)

Latest playlist added to my YouTube. Check the YouTube tab for my last 5 playlists.

Thursday, September 5, 2013


     Been chilling the last few days and feeling somewhat better now. Still have those headaches, but not as often anymore, woot! Been doing some well needed laundry and made a start on cleaning up the kitchen. Just a start though, should have done more, oh well. Cleaned up my computer a bit and moved some stuff to another drive, because my main drive was almost full. I really have to re-install everything completely, but that will take me a few days. Checked some of the games that were gifted to me as well as some of the games I bought myself. I got quite a lot of games in a short time and really want to start on several of them. First I need to shop for groceries though, I have nothing left to eat and even my cat is out of food. Looking at the time, this means I have to hurry now and go get myself a shower.
    I feel like streaming again :) However, I do not feel like Minecraft at all. I am thinking of making it a long weekend with lots of coffee and maybe even a drink or two (been so sick I never got to get a drink last weekend). A new game I got myself will be enough game-time to fill up the full weekend as well I think. So yeah, 'Underhell' it is ... Not even sure how I found this game - must have been Kotaku. I am not really a big fan of First Person Shooters, but I do love a good story and am a big fan of horror. I have a few other games that would fit though and I might decide to play and stream different games than Minecraft more often. I just hope my computer will be able to cope with all those fancy graphics. Will see how it goes, hope to see you all later tonight on Twitch ... off to the shower now ;-)
For those interested:
To play, requirements and installation instructions are mentioned on the download page.

No sleep and more headaches

Still hardly got any sleep. In and out of bed to catch as much as possible, but feeling too restless somehow. I probably caught as much as two hours in total the last few days. Still getting massive headaches as well, they are starting to drive me crazy. I seem to get them several times a day now without any real warning. Tried to sleep them off at first, but they often drive me so nuts, I don't even want to sleep and instead just walk around impatiently. Not even sure they are related to the many hours I usually spend behind the computer, but I am trying to stay away from the screens more often now. Fun thing is the pain is always on the right side, where my normal headaches are centered. I can deal with a normal headache, but this pain is insane. I usually get teary eyes before a headache comes up and even a running nose sometimes (usually on the right side again?). I sure hope it will go away again, the same way they all of a sudden started coming up. I might see my doctor about this after I tried a few things I feel to be related to this. So I won't be on the computer as much, take more breaks and even changed lighting where my computer is at. I read that lighting up the background might help and since I hardly have any lights on usually, I am hoping this will work. Also try to remember to turn off my extra monitors more often if I can and changed the brightness somewhat. Maybe I should buy myself some new monitors with a higher refresh rate. Too bad I can't really afford it, but if it will keep me from getting these massive headaches, I don't really care. Anyways, here I am at 9:15am in the morning, having my usual brekkie (coffee without a fag) thinking of what to do today. Really bored once again, knowing that I should not be doing too much work on the computer ... sigh. Just been watching some PAX 2013 on Twitch earlier and noticed I am not even allowed to watch high quality or source without subscribing to the channel for $10 even. What the fuck is wrong with you guys at Twitch!!! Is this going to be the new standard on Twitch for partnered channels? Only allowed to watch good quality if you pay up for it? DAMN, get real!!! Oh well, I am kind of done with Twitch and sure hope there will be an alternative soon with a similarly great community, because the community is great (for the most part), it's just the people running the site that suck! So what to do today? I can name many things that truly need to be done, but totally don't feel like it. I know it would make me feel a lot better though. I just wish to sleep and dream of a HAPPY ME instead of having to deal with every day real life. You know what, I might actually just give it another try, sleep that is! See you all later ... muahhh!

No sleep till ...

Been up ever since my last stream. Can't sleep although I sure tried several times. Got a massive headache, did not stream last night and bored as heck. Twitch been a pain anyway, not even sure if I want to continue streaming. Maybe I should just take a break and stream whenever I feel like instead of trying to follow a schedule and feel guilty whenever I have not been on. The Minecraft server seems to never get ready either and all it needs is some frikkin Bukkit setup and coding LUA for spawn to get it launched. Not sure if I should give up on it coz I sure don't feel like anything lately. Had dinner at 4:30am, fried chicken breasts, potatoes and some green beans the special Daimy way. I am trying to really push myself into doing anything useful but feel numb at the same time. SO coffee it is while watching some Minecraft streams on Twitch to feed my headache and Twitch Frustration. Right now at 8am I could prolly say my weekend started already since it's officially Friday now. Sure looking forward to a drink or two to celebrate this awful mood I am in right now! Happy weekend everyone ;-)

First of all, sorry for not streaming on last night. I will be Live again in a bit though!

    Been having these terrible headaches the last few months and they seem to be related to the amount of time I spend behind the computer (and maybe I worry too much about my private life and the new server coming up). Never used to have any problems spending my time behind my monitors, even for days. Not sure what to do about this, apart from taking more time off and not spend it watching streams or do whatever else on the computer. I do not believe in those gunnars that are supposed to help out. Oh well ... I just hope it will go away again since I have so much to do.

    Last night I decided not to stream, because I want the Minecraft server up and running as soon as possible. If I keep doing builds just to have streaming material, other things wont get done. So I decided to do some coding instead to get the Info monitor at spawn ready. Coding is something I like to stream and even though it might be interesting only for a few, I can truly enjoy it. With some nice music and viewers that are interested in all kinds of coding I can explain or help out. Some kind of tutorial/helpdesk kind of stream. Main reason I did not stream coding last night was the fact it needed my full attention and did not want to get distracted all the time. I would prolly have streamed it anyway if it wasn't for the headache though ... sigh. So sorry about that, I really try to keep a schedule and not let my viewers down too often.

    Still have all the Bukkit permissions to do, protection and regions to set and a few more minor things when it comes to configs. Hopefully the Minecraft server can be officially opened this weekend, although I am starting to doubt I will make it in time. Help is limited and I have to do all this mostly by myself. It's been a while since I worked with Bukkit. I will manage though, no doubt about that, but please be patient. The new Minecraft server will be awesome and with Bukkit plugins set up properly, it will allow us for even better functionality. All I can say is ... "SOON"

    Today I do feel a lot better and I sure hope not to get another headache. Not a clue yet what I will stream tonight, but I do have plenty options. We are working on several games already and I have a few more ideas as well. One of the ideas I have is a Maze map that will make many rage quit and never even finish it. Another idea is an Adventure map with a story and some good puzzles (think of Myst). These are just some planned ideas though and for now I will most likely focus on the games we already started developing. Might even do some coding, since I didn't get to finish the Info panel at spawn yet ... DANG HEADACHES!

Thnxxx Failurecomesfirst!

Oh my ... once again one of my regular viewers on Twitch TV could not help himself but gifting me yet more games. This time I was given "The Humble Origin Bundle", containing the following games: Dead Space, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Medal of Honor, Mirror's Edge, Dead Space 3, Sims 3 Starter Pack and Battlefield 3. Added the ones on Steam first and added a few on Origin that were not available on Steam. I do not need duplicates, so I have a few to give away on Origin.

Thank you so much Failurecomesfirst ♥♥♥

    So much on my mind and things to do, but feeling like crap at the same time. Really struggling hard to move on and get out of the shit hole I have been creating for myself. Disappointed in many things and most of all with myself. Its so frikkin hard to get my life back on track while not having any energy and just feeling sad and tired of it all. Dangit, life could prolly be so wonderful, why am I wasting time and allowing my depressive nature to take over? I don't even want to share how bad things actually are at the moment. I am an open book but feel ashamed to let anyone in on how deep I have sunk. Really waiting for that 'special' moment when I reach the point of completely being fed up with my shitty life and take action instead. Sadly enough, I am prolly way too used to this feeling/habit, that I won't even care and miss out on that opportunity.

    Where it used to be poker and friends that kept me busy and distracted from 'real life', now it's Minecraft and streaming doing the same thing for me. Don't get me wrong, I truly enjoy doing it and being around people and I love you all. It's just that I seem to flee into it way too much so I can forget about the 'real shit' going on at the same time. This means I am neglecting almost everything that truly needs to be done instead. I can't seem to find a way in between. I am working my ass off to get things done (Minecraft server/website/streaming) while feeling guilty and shitty at the same time because I am not doing anything that actually needs being done (treatment/social life/health/housekeeping). The more I flee, the guiltier I feel about neglecting myself, trying hard to care even less at the same time, making things worse and going down, down ... down.

    I have now come to a point I can't even truly enjoy doing the fun stuff anymore. Worries and guilt are starting to take over completely if I don't get a hold of myself. I must come across grumpy, unreasonable and complaining a lot because I am reflecting my inner self. I am starting to hide a lot as well lately and not trying hard enough to stick with the things I should love doing. Missing out on streaming, not doing enough work on the Minecraft server, website and whatever else that involves building the community I would so love to have. Often feeling sad and terribly depressed ending up in bed, trying to sleep it off, hoping the next day all will be fine again. Of course that won't be the case and instead I feel even more guilty because I should have streamed or worked on things. Speaking of sleeping, damn, ... my sleeping pattern is truly messed up. I will stay up all night until I am really exhausted to finally go to bed. At least I finally do get some sleep again, but I wish I could get some sleep when I should and not sleep through the day or even longer, making it hard to be 'there' for everyone when I should.

    I am thinking of taking some time off to sort things out, clean up the mess, making appointments again. If I continue like this, I will most likely burn out completely and just disappear. Then again, I can't ... I have a Minecraft server to promote, work to do on the website, streaming  regularly for my small community that expects me to be there. I can't just step out like that, I have to be there and work hard for you all I love so much. I am afraid I will miss you all and not do anything at all if I decide to take a break. Giving me even more reason to feel guilty about myself, not getting anything done, because I am so frikkin used to doing so ...

    So yeah ... I just keep on doing the same thing over and over again until I am truly fed up with my stupid depressive habits. Maybe then things will work out, maybe not ... MEHHH!!!

Server modpack updated!

Once again the new server modpack has updated. A few mods have been added like Grave Stone, Dimensional Doors and Nuclear Control. We have also done a lot of work on the server to get it ready for the public. Spawn is really starting to take shape now. Just some more building on several things and we should be good to go for that matter. Not completely ready yet, since we still have to work on the config files and Bukkit plugins, but as soon as that has been done we will be ready for launch. MCMMO, another Bukkit plugin will most likely soon be added as well. Please check out the forum for a complete list of the mods for this 1.5.2 pack.

Fed up with Twitch!

    Twitch has been messing up for well over a year now, although there have been some reasonably 'ok' times. Chat has never been truly fixed since they decided to code the Twitch IRC from scratch over a year ago. Since the move to the new layout, streams have been very laggy at times and making it hard to watch even with a beast of a computer. What the heck is going on and when will they finally start fixing their shyte?

    Sadly enough there is no true alternative and the community is great. I am not going to fully discuss all the problems we have had in the past and my discontent about several other 'features' and ways Twitch does things, but here are some of the 'new' issues. I need my Pixybot to function well. I need moderator icons to show, because now moderators don't come across the way they should. Moderators should not have to go through a hard time having to type the commands in chat either. Moderators can't even be sure they actually have the powers to do anything till they try a command. Loading times on chat and video are also terrible and often causes video to become unresponsive, needing another refresh. At times not even being able to connect at all. Refreshing causes a 'negative cascading effect' though, but what do you expect from the regular viewer? Chat often doesn't load at all and 'hangs' and being able to just reload the video by pausing/unpausing has been disabled! These are just a few examples and I have not even mentioned the terrible stream quality Twitch seems to force upon us. Their streaming servers can't cope and are routed terribly. Please please please Twitch, invest in quality and fixing bugs that have been around for ages instead of pretending to be all that great with the new stuff forced upon us. With all the new deals made (sponsorship) and having to refresh all the time to hopefully finally get connected well without any issues (ad revenue), there is plenty of money available to finally start fixing things. The community deserves way better!!!

    I am making a statement for now and won't be streaming till things are fixed! I know I won't make much of a difference, but I am truly fed up with this crap and I hope others will stand up and do the same. Hope to be back soon though, coz I do miss you all <3

Modpack updated!!!

The Minecraft 1.5.2 modpack has been fully updated and a few mods have been added. It took me all day to get it all to work and I am knackered now. No full list of the mods including links available on the forum as of yet, but will be added as soon as possible. I just wanted to let everyone know ;-)

New Public TeamSpeak 3!

As of now, the new TeamSpeak 3 server is up and running for the public. To join, have TeamSpeak 3 installed and join through this IP/address: Feel free to hang out!

New server is up!

    The new server is up and running right now. It is however running the latest modpack as shown on the forum and has not yet been updated. The modpack still needs to be updated and some mods will have to be added. For now I have added two plugins, WorldGuard and WorldEdit. More plugins will be added and they all have to be configured.
    We have a fresh new world and for now I want to see how it runs. Only those who are white-listed will be able to join. Just get in touch and ask me for the IP to fool around on this world and see how you like it. Please report any bugs or performance issues.
    The new TeamSpeak is up as well and will be open to the public once I have redirected the IP to a domain name. For those who were already on the old TeamSpeak, get in touch with me there and ask for the new IP.

A lot of work to be done the coming time, so my streaming schedule might get messed up a bit. Once all the setting up has been done, we can all have some fun again ...

New server on its way

    I am really happy to announce that the new server is on its way as we speak. Made a good deal with Rockstar Hosting and discussed things with Mr Adder again. The new server will be 4GB dedicated with burst capacity up to 16GB. It will be MCPC which means we are able to add several Bukkit plugins like World Guard and World Edit. We will also be having our own TeamSpeak so I can finally set up some public rooms as well without any limits.
    As soon as this deal is final, I will start to move over the modpack and make a few more changes. HardcoreEnderdragon and ExtraTrees will be added and possibly a few other mods. Then the config files need to be looked at closely and plugins for Bukkit need to be added and configured with permissions. We will then do some final testing and start building the World Spawn and other things in creative to make it all ready for a public launch.
    Costs for the new server will be $4/month and $10/3 months which seems more than reasonable for what we have to offer. All donations will be put towards the stream and server.

I am excited and can't wait to start ;-)

Another new update!

Been adding two more mods and updated a few mods that were already in the new modpack. Mods newly added are: BiblioCraft and ObsidiPlates. Check the forum!

I hope to soon be in touch with MrAdder again to discuss some last things and get the server up and running. Once that is all sorted we are really getting close to an official launch of the new server and world.

Let's continue testing on the new test world and hopefully get to a final modpack soon. As soon as the final modpack is ready and running on the new server, we can start a fresh world, build spawn and a few other things needed before the official launch. That is IF 1.6 is not going to break worlds and IF mods needed to be added for 1.6 (e.g. RedPower and XyCraft) do not cause problems with world gen.

New modpack !!!

A lot of work done once again. I have now installed my Minecraft server with about 80 mods total. Getting really close to a final modpack, although a lot of testing still needs to be done. All the mods are completely up to date and seem to work fine. I am really happy so far and didn't really run into many problems. Just bare in mind that this world will not be a final world to work on for official new server release. Those who were previously white-listed on Fun Paradise II are more than welcome to come join and help testing :-)

See the forum for all the mods and links and please post any issues you come across.

First modpack for the new Minecraft server

Today I have been working hard to get an initial modpack together for Minecraft to run on my server. For details about this modpack, check the forum. The forum is also there to report any bugs/errors or whatever other problems we may come across. The modpack is due to change a lot, so keep an eye out as I will try to keep it up-to-date. The modpack now runs on my server and only players from Fun Paradise II are allowed to join and help testing until we come to a final modpack and have the new paid server ready. Do note however that the white-list has been reset and previously white-listed players will have to be added again, so let me know if you wish to join. Have fun everyone :-)

Moderation ... random thought ...

Was just reading the fine print in the Twitch Terms Of Service, it says it takes 600 seconds to grow a pubic hair. Who knew? ... I wonder if a ban includes a waxing ....

Re-roll, forget about that update!

The latest FTB Mindcrack update creates more problems than it actually solves or adds to the game. I had to re-roll to the version we were using (v8.2).
- BiblioCraft is only partly working, some items are broken.
- The updated GregTech is partly broken (Plate Bending machine stops functioning when adding upgrades)
- Some routers stopped functioning, although they will resume once source to insert to or extract from is changed.
- The overworld is not showing level tick in server console anymore.
- Lag is even worse on all fronts. Apart from block lag there is also dropped item lag (lying on the floor for a few seconds before going into inventory).
- Twilight Forest dimension does not unload anymore even though there are no chunkloaders or any players there.
- Something I just find weird: Forestry creates a player called '[forestry]' and even ops this player, which you can see in console and shows up in your ops.txt file (Operators list on server). Why???
- Traincraft Zeppelin becomes uncontrollable.
... Shall I continue, because the list goes on ...

Anyways, I had no other option than to revert to the previous version we were using. 3 days of work down the drain, I was on a rant and in a terrible mood. Decided to do part of the work that I had already done in the last few days in 'creative' mode. Oh well, this means this version might be the final and last version we will be using before moving over to the new server. This is prolly the only good thing about this. No more change for a while !!!

For those who already updated their client, I am sorry and I hope you can downgrade your client to v8.2 without too much of a problem. Sorry for those who have been building the last three days. Get in touch with me if you need any help downgrading again and let me know if you lost any builds and or items due to this re-roll.

More detailed information about downgrading/installing v8.2 again will be on the forum.

Fun Paradise II server updated!!!

I have just updated the Fun Paradise II server to the latest version. My server now requires the Mindcrack pack version 8.3.2 including Mystcraft and Charge Pads from the Direwolf20 pack (version 5.3.2). Bibliocraft is now added to the pack as well! For installation check either the 'Installation' or the 'Update log' topics within 'Fun Paradise II' on the forum.

Hope to see you all soon again without any problems installing ;-)

New Minecraft server coming !!!

    Since my server which I run on my laptop with 6GB can't prevent us from lag with the amount of mods being used, I am forced to change things. This means I have basically two options: 1) Continue on the laptop with a very small group of players, or 2) Start renting a dedicated server to be able to continue with about 25 players white-listed. Whichever choice I make, it will be a fresh new world to get rid of bugs and other redundant data that sneaked into the existing world due to many updates and changes in ways things were coded.
    The first option as mentioned above will be my only choice if I can't find enough players willing to pay their fair share. We will then start a fresh world and about 5 players can join to create a new world together. Main focus will then be building together on an epic world and offer world download to the public.
    Second option will only be possible if I can get enough paying players to join my server. I have been looking into it and this will mean a monthly fee of $5 and some reduction when paying 3 months in advance. Main focus will still be building an epic world together, but considering the amount of players, it will be hard to work as one group together. I am however planning to do more 'group builds' again since it used to be a lot of fun.
    For now we will continue to build on the server as is. Once all the mods have updated and we have decided on what mods or mod pack to use, I will see if enough players are willing to pay to join the new server. This will take some time and I am not sure when updates and mods catching up has somewhat stabilized. For this matter I kind of consider the world we are working on now as a test world. We have been introduced to a lot of new mods and Minecraft has changed considerably as well. Hopefully somewhere in the near future we can start a new world that will last a long time again, like the first Fun Paradise world did in 1.2.5.
    So yeahhh, we will see what the future brings. Of course I am sort of hoping to be able to get us a dedicated server (option 2) even though I strongly dislike having players on my server pay for it. It will just give us a way better playing experience and more options. I will make new forum topics for discussion and suggestions soon as well as applications.

Will keep you all up to date ...

Fun Paradise II updated!

My Minecraft server Fun Paradise II has been updated to the latest versions of the FTB MindCrack and Direwolf20 pack (v8.2 and v5.2 respectively).
Rei's minimap has been removed by FTB for some reason and replaced with Zan's minimap within the VoxelModpack which is part of the MindCrack pack. Sadly enough this makes you lose all waypoints, but there is a fix ;-)

Check the Installation or Update Log topic on the forum ;-)

Back to streaming coming weekend

    Sorry but I have not been feeling like streaming at all lately. Part of it had to do with doing a lot of coding for the Fun Paradise II server. Coding is pretty boring to watch for most and I can't really concentrate well on it while streaming. Another reason for not streaming was simply because I didn't really feel like it, not in the right mood and winters always get to me (depression). On top of that I caught the flu some days ago and food poisoning with it. Hope I will soon feel better, but I sure will stream no matter what.
    Anyways, been very busy setting up an Economy I had planned for ages. The coding is finally finished and we can soon start up the economy. As soon as Main Purpose has a place for itself and is somewhat organized we will start up with a group build for which every player can earn a starting amount of credits. Main will set up some first shops to set a trend as for prices for items and players will be able to buy shops as well. Can't wait to see how it all works out.
    I have also finished coding the elevators at main spawn, which took a lot more work than expected due to changes in ComputerCraft. I was hoping I could simply copy over the elevators and code, but this would not work anymore. Bundled cables are no longer part of the rednet and the fact I needed wireless modems now changed a lot. Had to completely re-code them from scratch to get them to work with rednet. They seem to be working fine now, apart from some minor bugs sometimes due to unloading chunks even though they are being kept chunk-loaded. The code is even better now, showing elevators that are busy. The code is very clean and easy for adding new floors to them. For those who are interested in using the elevators, feel free to ask for the code Main Purpose will sell. All you need to do is set them up the same way I have done them.
    So woot woot, a lot of hard work finally done, feeling a lot better now and back to streaming this coming weekend. Hope to see you all again, coz I sure missed quite a few of my white-listed players lately. The fact I have not been streaming at all for quite some time most likely has to do with that, although it should not be a reason for not joining. The server is up 24/7 most of the time anyway. Of course I have missed all my viewers as well and I am looking forward to seeing you all soon again ...

Fun Paradise II updated !!!

    Now that the FTB MindCrack and Direwolf20 modpacks finally have been updated to v8.1.1 and v5.1.1 respectively, it was time to update the Fun Paradise II server as well! I was very happy to see that both packs are finally using a development version of IndustrialCraft 2 solving a lot of bugs and lag issues. Strangely enough I noticed that the config files for the MindCrack pack also contain the Direwolf20 configs for mods that are not even in this pack.
    Another thing I noticed immediately were some of the new Forestry additions like the new electron tubes used for the multi-block farm structures (Apatine and Lapis). Since I had just build a few of those farms and was not able to get those electron tubes in the previous version, I checked on those first. Fun thing with the farms as well is the fact my Sequoia fences around the farms were being eaten at those fields of the farm where I had set them to Orchards (manual). I guess the farm sees them as actual fully grown trees. This caused my fully automated system to get clogged. Now it uses dirt instead of actual humus as input as well, but still places humus turning it into sand, so I will have to create an automated input for dirt.
    A new Mystcraft version that has been added caused all the inter-age linking books to be broken. A quick fix though by placing a link modifier and recreating them all over again. I think I have done all the books I could find. Very curious to see the new features Mystcraft has added. A new Mining World will be created as soon as possible and I am considering to create a new void age as well or removing it till a void age is truly needed.
    Another bug I noticed when trying to join the server the first time was a crash caused by Java. Something to do with not being able to get the right orientation for my distillation towers from Traincraft (java.lang.NullPointerException at src.train.common.tileHelper.getOrientationFromSide( and at and some render problems ...). Somehow it fixed itself or so it seems, because sometimes I can join without problems and other times it crashes with the same problem again. So if you encounter the same problem, please keep trying.
    So far all seems fine though and I even get a better frame rate. Still some IC2 enet console spam for some machines (mostly the TileEntityReactorChamberElectric). Also some weird console errors about duplicate item IDs not being used by any other mod. Oh well, I have never ever ran such a terrible server, but I am still willing to give FTB a try instead of having to install every mod myself and keeping it way more up-to-date then they do. It would most likely solve a lot of problems since I would use the latest versions and dev builds for many of the mods, bug fixing a lot. To be honest, I have a fully updated server setup ready to go in case I decide to do things myself again, but it would mean clients having to install all the mods themselves again. Right now its as easy as it can get for clients, since they can just use the modpack as offered by FTB.
    I have added three mods from the Direwolf20 modpack. Those are Mystcraft (has been added from start), Charging Pads and Thaumic Bees. The last two are new on my Fun Paradise II server and reason I added them is because I feel that Charging Pads (IC2 addon) is very useful and Thaumic Bees is a nice addition to the Thaumcraft mod (and Forestry bees) we already have.
    Check the forum Change log or Installation topic for installing the modpack as used on my server. If you encounter any problems, please post them on the forum as well. I truly hope all goes well this time without any major problems. Have fun ....

Weekend spoiled :-(

    As many may know, I have got quite a sleeping problem for a very long time. Not just sleeping very irregularly, but also hardly getting any sleep for years now. On average I get about 8 hours of sleep a week, which is way less than most people would normally get. In itself not even that bad, I mean ... I got kind of used to it. I am a night owl and always have been for reasons that go way back to my early childhood. I worry a lot about everything and everyone and can't really sleep till I feel all is well. Very late at night I start feeling more comfortable and relaxed, because then most people should be fast asleep, which means I don't have to worry as much anymore. Now with the internet, this makes a huge difference compared to the normal 'real' life. I meet way more people from all over the world, which means not only more worries, but also messes up time completely. My head never seems to 'shut up' anymore, since there is ALWAYS something going on. Ever since I got internet, my comfy zone changed from late night to daytime. So whenever I do get some sleep nowadays, it would be during the day.

Not been feeling too well

    I feel so frikkin tired last few days and can't seem to get much rest or a good night's sleep. Feels like I got a cold coming up as well. I am prolly just way too busy with setting up my Minecraft server and making sure all goes well. Too much going on in my head, just won't shut up in there ... nothing new though, sigh.
    Another thing that is bugging me is me delaying to make some very important phone calls for new appointments to get treatment going again. Once I got my hair removal treatment done for certain area 'down under', I should soon be able to get my sexual re-assignment surgery. Not sure what is holding me back to just pick up the phone and get things going again. Just too depressed ... still. Also need my Adams apple shaved and have facial hair removal, but that is of later concern although the latter I can most likely start already.
    Just feel so lost and can't really find any energy. Trying hard to kick my own butt to get going again. Makes me cry to see days fly by without having done shyte. I feel like a mess ...

Not been been streaming on Twitch yesterday and won't be today, but back tomorrow again.

Weekend, yay!!!
