Disk Partitioning Software “Free”

EASEUS Partition Manager 3.0 Home Edition – FREE FOR HOME USERS ONLY

Click the Photo For Full View.

easeusI had been looking for a good Disk Partition software to use that would work with a (RAID O) Drive setup, and well after a little investigating, I came upon this program called  “EASEUS Partition Manager 3.0 Home Edition”. I installed it and gave it a try, well now it is very simular to Partition Magic, but this Home Version is a Free Ware program. They also have a “Professional and Server Edition” Which most of us will not have any need for. It worked perfectly, I have a Set of WD Drives 160 GB each set on a RAID O setup, at first I was a little skepticle, but it never failed me, worked like a charm, I added a 80 GB partition with no problems using Windows XP Pro.

Instructions below:
1. I  had first to shrink my main partition to allow an 80GB unalocated partition space.

2. I then applied the settings and rebooted my PC to make sure it was ok.

3. I then formatted the unalocated 80GB space as NTFS, smooth as a whistle.

4. Rebooted to finish and all was just fine no problems.

After checking the program out some more, I found that you can use the graphical layout to just slide the edge of the box contianing the partion around to resize, of move it from one place to another and then click apply and it will do its job.

CoD-UO Mental Mod, By Jake

Mental Mod updated to v2.8:by Jake

This is a mod i had put together awhile back, that has several upgrades. This Mod includes a throwable

knife with added blood splatter effects and sound. All vehicles have been speeded up to a more natural

realistic speed. It also includes added artillery effects, Missle (one single hard blast to take out a

tank), a 45 second artillery birage and a 45 second smoke out (drops smoke bombs). I have upgraded just

about all weapons for better accuracy and power including all sniper rifles have a 3 zoom selectable

setting by using the fire rate button (M key) or what ever you set it for. Sticky satchels, sticky nades,

trip wires and plenty more, such as new skins and some more effects. This Mod is complimated with the awe

mod, so your have choices of many settings. I have included a config file already setup with the max that

it will let the mod run at.

Must be run on COD UO Version 1.51

Changes in v2.8 from v2.6: Added seperate Menu Screen “zzz_ME_V2.8_menuscreen.pk3″ this will allow you to

change the Menu screen easier than opening up the main “zzz_ME_v2.8_mod.pk3″ file, or you can leave out

the menu screen .pk3 file and have the standard menu screen in UO.

Here is a movie link to show you how to edit the “zzz_ME_V2.8_menuscreen.pk3″ it show how to edit the

menu file in v2.6, but instead just edit it in the new “zzz_ME_V2.8_menuscreen.pk3″ that way you don’t

have upload and download the bigger main mod file.
Movie link:

Extract the files zzz_ME_v2.8_mod.pk3 and zzz_ME_V2.8_menuscreen.pk3 and zzz_missle_smoke_artillery.pk3

also the mental.cfg config into your mod folder.

1. Put the “zzz_ME_v2.8_mod.pk3″ in your mod folder (e.g. mental_mod)
2. put the “zzz_ME_V2.8_menuscreen.pk3″ in your mod folder (e.g. mental_mod)
3. put the “zzz_missle_smoke_artillery.pk3″ in your mod folder (e.g. mental_mod)
4. Put the “mental.cfg” in your mod mod folder (e.g. mental_mod)


THEM IN THE UO OR MAIN FOLDER) as this will cause problems with other files and mods.

To run these on a server and make downloadable you need to place a copy or them on your redirect server

in a mod folder (e.g. mental_mod) so that when someone connects to the server they will be able to auto

download them into their game folder.

You should also set the command line to run mods and custom config.
Command line example: 
+set dedicated 2 +set fs_game Mental +exec mental.cfg +set sv_punkbuster 1 +map_rotate

There are a lot of addons in this mod so i cannot name them all but it is maxed out.

If you need any help feel free to contact me at wgn377 at bellsouth dot net , or my xfire user name is-

BFG 9600gtoc vs 8800gtoc

January 3, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

bfg1Here are some screen shots HighNoon had taken while testing the BFG 9600GT-OC vs 8800GT-OC. It appears the 9600 will hold up close to the 8800 as far as playable FPS. The 9600 Temp will run around 55 degrees C. compared to the 8800 Temp running around 77 degrees C. The 9600 will run fine up into the High Spec setting but is not playable in Very High settings in Crysis. The 8800 will go all out and be very playable in just about all settings in Crysis. Read more
