  1. Yikes! That's very unfortunate Lindor. Merged content is tricky business. Especially in the case of merging into a Downloads page. It's a bit of a paradox it seems! I've not dabbled with retrieving overwritten data very much and the general response from our forum software creators is that it isn't possible. Restoring from a site backup is a somewhat big ask but before we even go digging too much further... Is this what you are looking for? Google cache of this page: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:WzUR40lnQKMJ:https://darkmatters.org/forums/index.php%3F/topic/72326-fur-shader-pack-20-different-furshader-finsshader-pairs/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca&client=firefox-b-d Sometimes looking at the cached version of a Google indexed page can get us out of a sticky situation.
  2. Thanks for the heads up Lindor! Ok, now I see it. I'll see what I can do! EDIT 20 mins later: Seems as though browser width is making a difference. At certain widths it works. It looks like more narrow widths work better than wide... Must have something to do with the responsive CSS adjusting the design based on browser widths. To be continued! Is it this that you are saying is not working? I tried to reproduce the issue but everything seems A ok on my browsers. Firefox, Chrome and Edge. What I'm doing is: Go to Downloads page Go to What's New section Click little right arrow until end of list Click left arrow to go back to the start of the list (working for me) Is that what you are trying to do? Please correct me if I'm mistaken!
  3. Cheers gang! Wow, very true. Updating is not for the faint of heart, lol. We still have a bit of work to do. There's a persistent bug I am trying to quash. I think I will need to reset everyone's notification settings unfortunately. I'll be doing that in the very near future but I'll announce a heads up before I do and explain what it will mean when I make the announcement. What I'm attempting to do is to minimize the strain on our email server by resetting very old members that don't visit to the default of no email notifications. The only way to do that is to do it to everyone. That's the quick heads up! I'll continue to explore options for this week and I'll likely implement the above strategy by the end of next week. Around the 1st I guess. Stay Sacred!
  4. Very nice Lindor! You really nailed that haircut. For the longest time I wanted to design emoji's but some other project would always take precedence. Kolobok's emojis are a big fave of mine and of which most of our forum emojis are from. Aiwan, I think is the author's name, created a GDK kit so that anyone could create emojis based on his style and using templates he provided. Feel free to try your hand at it. http://www.en.kolobok.us/download.php?view.13
  5. 18 years, whew! That's a lot of gaming! So nice of you to join the team in our epic and eternal battle against naughty bots and the like. We promise not to throw you to the trolls. Hehe. You're a rock Timo and we're better with you. 3 Cheers for Timo! Oops! I mean... Shhhh... Thar be pirates about eh. ^^
  6. Now we got some serious holiday spirit happening! Full disclosure, the Christmas theme has been resurrected using some serious arcane necromancy. Since the original creator of the theme we bought from went bonkers last year, I decided to update the theme on my own to make it compatible with our forum software. (She kinda ran away to elope and dumped all clients after taking money...) That said! There may be a few kinks in the works. Enjoy the music player and enjoy the xmas lights. They're reeeaally expensive so be careful not to break any.
  7. Very exciting project Flix. Congrats in advance of your release! I get the sense that this will be a new base mod to work from. Is that a part of the intent for this mod? To build off of it in order to create shiny new tidy code mods?
  8. That time of year indeedy! I'm getting my holiday spirit on with the start of this year's decorations on the forum. Bizarrely enough, this is probably my most regular holiday tradition. Decorating the DarkMatters forum. Modern times huh! Very nice and relaxing Yuletide carol chattius.
  9. Heeey there Masteff. Long time indeed! I'm deep in the code these days myself. Seems I'm getting a little too good at holding my breath under code. I barely see the sun.
  10. Is this the Valheim Anonymous support group? Ok, I confess. I was juuuust a wee LOT into this. Like, I was playing way too much! Needless to say I adore Valheim. One of the best that I've played in quite a while. I played with 2 others on a server we're renting and that probably adds a lot to the fun factor. Bizarrely enough, what I like most is it's semi hard core take on character deaths. It reminds me a bit of the old Sacred game. In the old Sacred, when someone died, your friends could help by going and picking up your stuff before the dead person left the game in order to preserve the nice gear acquired. In Valheim, when a player dies, they leave a tombstone where they died that contains their entire inventory. The trick is that sometimes players die in very far away lands or highly dangerous areas. The player that died can gamble and run for their gear from where ever they respawn but that can be pretty deadly. But! With friends on the server you can call them in to help out. All that said, I find that Valheim brings about fond memories of the HC camaraderie we had and the way we would help each-other out or simply explore together. Try new things. Maybe even exploite a bug or two. Valheim is the first time I've played an early access game. From my experience it's a complete and worthy experience. Play time? Ummm... 324.7 hours. It's a lot of fun. Worth more than the $22 it's selling for in my opinion:
  11. lol Timo We call it: Christmas... Shock & Awe! *imagining people ducking for cover as they accidentally mouse over xmas lights.*
  12. While we wait to see what happens with our fave Christmas theme designer we hope you guys enjoy some festive decor! Careful not to bust the xmas lights on the top of the site when moving your mouse pointer! Thanks @Flix for the festive background!
  13. Curious! It's strange that it is pulling the title text of the video rather than embedding it. Are you coy/pasting from the address bar? Also, what browser Timo?
  14. Thanks for the exploration guys. A short time after posting this I did some testing in Edge and Chrome which ended up confusing me more than already was, haha. It seems that the two browsers may sometimes "fix" themselves after successfully embedding a youtube video after which point copy/pasting will reliably embed the video... So much for troubleshooting! Just tested now and Edge, Chrome and Firefox are all embedding automatically after copying a youtube url from the address bar and pasting into the editor. So maybe once someone successfully embeds then it is no longer an issue?
  15. Yup, looks like this hard drive has been corrupted by the gogo and DarkMatters virus.
  16. Hey gang. Just thought I'd open up this topic to list the ways that can make posting more fun and less work. This one is for you @Flix! Paste a link to a youtube video but don't embed it as a playable video within the post. Just a simple link. Step 1. Paste the link Step 2. Press CTRL + Z Done! A favorite of mine and something I find very annoying without. Making a new line without double line space. Step 1. Hold down the shift key Step 2. Press the Enter key Done!
  17. Amazing exploration Flix. Right up my alley, haha. One of my clients is heavily into the Topaz collection. She calls on me to clarify things for her on occasion. When first saw my client had bought Gigapixel AI I admittedly saw it as a gimmick to add onto her collection of Topaz products but as the software evolves it's becoming more and more useful. And what great use you're making of it! The reprocessed textures are much improved. I'm most impressed by the first sword in your list. Interesting that the flat gold lines going towards the tips of the blades became embossed in the up-scaled version. It doesn't seem to me as though there was any embossing of those lines in the original. Pretty cool stuff! P.s. Regarding the strange forum behaviour of auto embedding youtube links; try the follwoing: paste youtube link link becomes a video scroll down to just under the now embedded video look for the message "Your link has been automatically embedded. Display as a link instead. Click on "Display as a link instead" to get rid of the embedded video and leave a link in it's place. Somewhat annoying. I know!
  18. Sorry about the blinding white gang! I blame gogo cause, why not! Our Old skin is broken since updating so I re-installed a new version of it. So it's all fixed but missing several customizations I had made long ago. It'll take some time before it's back to it's "kitsch" glory. Granted, if you happen to see somethings that looks broke, please let me know.
  19. Thanks guys for the troubleshooting! Man, that Google is really making life complicated... Google has been making a lot of changes lately to the map api that I use to run the map. It used to be that I would just code the map using js and reference google as a link. NOW... It's a massively complex Cloud Platform Service. Looking at the Dashboard for Google Platform Services is enough to make even the pros cross-eyed, lol. Soooo many menus and links and graphs and charts. All of which I will never use. Just so that people understand; the reason for the recent map problems is that Google is redefining their many services in a way that would allow them to charge more fees. Basically. The problem in September was because they wanted my credit card... *Gulp!* This time the reason was that they wanted me to "upgrade" my account with Google services. I've yet to find out what that really means. I just wanted to get the map working again and I don't really have a ton of time today so I just hit the upgrade button without reading the fine print. The Dungeon map now appears to be working again. Hopefully it won't come at a fee. Fingers crossed! http://www.sacredwiki.org/index.php/Sacred_2:Map_of_Ancaria
  20. You are most welcome @Arienstarr. Genius Timo! Thanks for that tip. I've never liked Mediawiki's url addressing. Our wiki urls used to be formatted as sacredwiki.org/index.php5/PAGENAME. I think it was a couple years ago after an update that the "5" was removed. Would love to make the time to remove the entire index.php from our urls though it's tricky from what I've read. As well as create some redirects for the old link format. One more thing on the to do pile, heh.
