  1. Yeah, I've tried different media. The DVD burner is only about 7 months old so it shouldn't be dying. I'm gonna try cleaning it and trying DVD-R media and see if that helps. Might try out DVD Shrink again to.
  2. 4x generally. The 8x ones generally work for longer than the 4x ones. Ones I burn at 2.4x work around the same time as the 4x ones. Generally 2.4x and 4x work fine until about chapter 3. 8x ones work fine until about chapter 5.
  3. I'm having a rather annoying time creating backup DVD's. I own a MSI DR8-A DVD burner. Until a few months ago, everything was fine. Now, when I create backups of my DVD's, I use DVD Decrypter to decrypt the DVD and then use CloneDVD2 to encode and burn the DVD. Lately, any DVD's I burn work until around the 3rd chapter and then start to get choppy. On my Dick Smith DVD player, after about chapter 5, the DVD will just freeze. On the DVD player we have downstairs, it will still play but eventually become unwatchable due to the skipping. Most other DVD players I try them on, it won't even work. Yet if I try it on my 7 year old DVD drive in my computer, it runs flawlessly. I'm dumbfounded as to why this is. Some people have told me it's DVD Decypter. Others have said it's CloneDVD2 and a few have even said it's the TDK DVD+R's I use. Has anyone else experienced these problems? What would most likely be the cause? I'm thinking it might be the DVD+R's I'm using. I'm going to try DVD-R's but I'd like to get some other feedback. Does anyone have any other programs I should use? Edit: Version numbers I use: DVD Decrypter: v3.5.2.0 CloneDVD2: v2.4.2.7
  4. @DLF: I know what you mean by the project. It should be possible to create an admin install point for SP2, then use the /integrate switch on each of the hotfixes to integrate them into the SP2 admin install point. Once that's done, put the SP2 admin install point onto a CDR and install SP2 that way. I didn't mean to slipstream the hotfixes into a Windows source. Edit: Yeah, what evilvoice means is what I meant.
  5. @ankap: Thanks. That's what I meant before when I said they could be integrated.
  6. @indianarchie: You only need one.
  7. I just used the torrent from that speedyb site above and got it all in about an hour or so.
  8. I to have finally made it past the submit button: Thank you Rodney, for your interest in the Rockstar Classics Free Download Series. Unfortunately, we are experiencing a high volume of downloads now and your information has not be collected. Please try back another time. I think I might just go with the torrent from that speedyb site above.
  9. I'm STILL trying to get it so that's why there is still no download info.
  10. Heh. If so, they'd have about 1000 copies of it by now.
  11. I thought you could create an administrative install point for SP2, then integrate Post-SP2 hotfixes into it? If you can do that, then you can burn the administrative install point to a CD and have a cmd script install from that. Removes the need to reformat computer and removes the need to restart more than once.
  12. Yeah. I was going to post a direct link but I'm still yet to get through.
  13. Can you guys actually get it to download? Been trying since last night but it keeps timing out.
  14. Don't know if this belongs here or under gamers hangout. Sorry if it does belong there. Grand Theft Auto 2 has been released for free download at the Rockstar Classics website. This version of GTA2 is modified from its original version to enable support for modern PC's and current Microsoft® Windows® platforms. However, we unfortunately cannot guarantee that GTA2 will work correctly on your PC. Download, Installation and execution of this software is entirely at your own risk. View: Rockstar Classics
  15. Really? I could swear he was... hmm... Edit: Well I'll be. So he wasn't... Ahwell, it's still a great movie... Pulp Fiction was his best movie then.
  16. I love TechTV here in Australia (we got it about 6 months ago when we got digital) but because G4 are arseholes, they're not letting us use the license anymore. So, bye bye TechTV as of the 31st of December... Instead we get a stupid "Crime & Investigation Network" channel. TechTV was about the only reason I got digital.
  17. I'm voting for Pulp Fiction BUT only because Desperado isn't on the list. Desperado was his best film in my opinion.
  18. heh. Yeah I saw that one. Didn't mean to ask for it again. Must be another game that I wanted to do that to... Can't remember what it is though...
  19. I'd also like to know this but I don't have a Hotmail account. If you do find out, let us know eh.
  20. It should be right to extract it (although I don't see why you would want to RAR up one bmp file, unless your extracting many user account pictures)? I can't be sure if it'll apply or not though. Should but no promises.
  21. I know there used to be a site somewhere that told you how to combine the sims and all expansions into one installation on multiple CD's or a DVD. For the life of me, I cannot find the site anymore. Can anyone remember this site? I'm also after the ones for Doom 3 CD to DVD and U2k4 CD to DVD. Not asking for cracks here, just websites that can tell me how to put all the CD's for a game onto a DVD. I'm sick and tired of spending half a bloody hour installing the sims + all expansions onto a computer.
  22. The reason you can't do that is because $Docs and other $OEM$ directories get copied at the text-based portion of setup. At that stage, setup doesn't know about any user accounts, therefore, it cannot copy files to it. Just thought I'd clarify that.
  23. It's called a user account picture and resides in "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\User Account Pictures" It's filename is the name of your user account. In this case, it's "Administrator.bmp". To change it, just put a file called "Administrator.bmp" in the "$OEM$\$Docs\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\User Account Pictures" directory on your CD.
  24. That's a little harsh baggers02. The reason he doesn't want to use the Save As option is because it would mean that everyone would have to do that. I know from experience that doing something like this on 2000 computers is quite tricky (something you can't do one-by-one). On-topic though, there are a few small programs around on the net that can do what you want. WGET for Windows is probably best suited to what you want. It will mirror a website onto your hard drive (or webpage as you want). You get grab it here: http://allserv.ugent.be/~bpuype/wget/ Hope this helps.
