      Update on the single-device/browser login restriction issue some people are having.   04/04/2017

      4/7/2017 update: Now people who've been affected by this are saying that it went away on its own after about a week. So I dunno, if this would really hugely inconvenience you try to not log in on additional devices/browsers until the 4.2 update that's supposed to hopefully resolve this for good.   original announcement: For a long time now, D1P has been limited to three logins at a time; logging in on a fourth device or browser would log you out everywhere else. Unfortunately, multiple people have been reporting that they've started experiencing being limited to ONE login at a time.   The good news is, Invision Power Services (the company that makes our forum software) is aware of the issue and will be addressing it in version 4.2 of the software, which is the next big update. The bad news is, they announced about a month ago (the beginning of March 2017) that the update will be coming out in "mid 2017", so we probably have at least another couple of months to go before this is resolved.   In the meantime, I apologize to those affected for the inconvenience, and would suggest to everyone else to not log in to additional devices until this is resolved if this is something you don't want to have to have to deal with. I'm still not 100% sure on why it's not affecting everyone and why it didn't hit everyone affected at the same time, but the timing of when the reports of this started here mostly lines up with when I've seen reports of other sites having this issue starting, and I suspect that the problem is trickling in because of people happening to hit a fourth login that logs them out everywhere else, and then proceeding to be limited to one login at a time after that.

  1. They clearly don't know what they're doing or they would have announce May 4th instead of 24th.
  2. if((Get-Process notepad -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null) { taskkill.exe /F /IM calculator.exe /T taskkill.exe /F /IM winword.exe /T taskkill.exe /F /IM excel.exe /T } Replace notepad with the main process and then replace the tasks to kill (adding or removing lines as necessary) and it will only run if the main process is not running. You may need to check the properties of the process in the task manager or look up the name of the executable to find the precise name (i.e. winword.exe for Microsoft Word).
  3. Identify all the processes. If you can add a conditional statement in your script it should do what you need. Either make so that if it is running it quits running the rest of the script or make the condition for killing the processes be that the main process is not running. Instead of Slug's second line try "taskkill.exe /F /IM [process name].exe /T" for each process you need to kill (everything that is started by the main process but not the main process itself).
  4. Start the task manager after a fresh boot to compare what is running before and after starting the program. Then close the program and see what other processes that it opened are still running and have the script just kill those and only run the script after closing the program. Why do you need to do things this way? I sometimes encounter issues where a program won't shutdown so I have to kill the task but the add-ons for the program keep running but I know which tasks to kill so I can quickly end all of them and then start the program normally. Why would you need to run the script while the program is running if the purpose of the script is basically to reset the program?
  5. Windows has a built in memory test but you still need to reboot for it to run. It takes less time to run than memtest but it automatically reboots into Windows when it's done. If you just want to run a quick test to see if it finds anything it's a good option. If it doesn't find anything you can still do an overnight memtest afterwards.
  6. The official game of D1P. All posters should play it before picking up a real knife.

  8. Are there any PC games that require analog shoulder buttons? I would think that even games that can use analog buttons would still work without them since keyboard and mouse is the default for PC so worse case your shoulder buttons should be working the same way as assigned keys or mouse buttons. If you have a racing game or something like that where the gas could potentially use an analog button give it a try and see how it goes. If you're able to play a racing game or flight/space game fine without analog buttons you should be fine for any other kind of game and if it is playable with keyboard and mouse it will at least be playable without analog buttons even if it isn't ideal.
  9. It was especially infuriating when Golden Sun did the same, since by then it had long been fixed in the FF series (since FF3 and fixed in remakes of 1&2). FF2 isn't too bad if you don't try to max out all your spells but if you've got a way to make it faster, go for it. I wasted a ton of time on my second play through of the GBA version maxing out spells even for temporary party members in anticipation of the bonus dungeon but by the time I was ready to finish the main game I moved on to other games so I never replayed the bonus dungeon.
  10. I used a Game Genie code that gave extra magic (it replaced the numbers with weird symbols until you used enough to get down to numbers, I think the code description said unlimited magic but you would eventually run out) when I played the NES version of FF1. I was glad they switched to a regular MP system and added auto-re-targeting when the targeted enemy was already defeated for the GBA version. I recently played both the NES and Arcade versions of Battletoads on Rare Replay.
  11. I still play a bit of DQVII and I've been bringing my 3DS with me a lot lately for Streetpass.
  12. That's cheap for Nintendo. Given that SNES and Genesis games are that price I'm surprised they don't charge more. They've even charged more than usual for an untranslated import game. The worst is Sonic the Hedgehog because the Genesis games have been ported to pretty much everything so there's no reason to pay more on a Nintendo system.
  13. It's amazing getting on top of a pillar with no jump button though it could sometimes be a pain to space out pumped up bombs and regular sized bombs just right to bounce you where you want to go. Just don't accidentally detonate your bombs.
  14. @crispy4000 Pretty sure some of the trickier puzzles in story mode made me want to never have to do it again but I don't think I'm going to be able to resist.
  15. You don't need to turn it off, just put it far away and either yell or use a low-tech setup like some tins cans and string. Nintendo is big on accessories so they'll probably sell an anti-wireless-interference chamber for the Switch. It'll only fit one person so you'll need to by more for local multiplayer.
