Now for a debate that is not closely related to history like a few of the other topics.

OK, I have Vista, and I am wondering who thinks what is better and why, I have once used XP before, but that's because my grandma has one, and currently it doesn't access the internet (it did once before) due to some problems, probably for the modem.

Shoo! Why does it smell in here?
Maybe that's the wrong kind of force. *smirk*

I've got Vista... I'm kinda off and on as far as it's concerned.  I like some things, hate others.

I like XPs better, but I'm stuck with a vista. The areo options that can be used to make Vistas look cool is awesome, but XPs are way better to use, and when you are the administrator, you don't have to click "run as administrator" in order to do so. Everything was easy to find, to.  Sad Oh, man, I miss my XP! It crashed right after the vista came into the stores and XPs were taken down, so I cou;d.t just get a new XP... The thing also had a better graphics card for some reason. Sweat Drop But that made the thing all the more useful. Oh well...

I prefer XP... But I did find a funny parody clip about Vista.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enRQzjkLAQs&feature=related

Anyway, I prefer XP because I find it easier to use and it does not always repeat the same questions to me. I am considering getting Windows 7 though.

Have a nice day.

Obsolete debate is obsolete.

New debate is:  XP vs 7

I just reread your comment RTS... You can't get another XP? If you go to a computer store (not a big electronics place like Futureshop or anything), you should be able to request XP. In fact, this new computer which was given to me last June has XP installed.

As for Windows 7... I have never used it, but I would like to try it out. Is it any good?

Have a nice day.

I'll let you know in a few months.  I'm currently saving for a new compy, now that I've got all my console needs taken care of.

I would, but I don't have the kind of money to just buy a new computer. I have to wait for this one to crash.

<--XP. Because I know how to use it. And I heard Vista wasted a lot of memory.

Oh, but my laptop runs on '98. *bricked*

Yeah, it does.  That's why I excluded vista from the new XP vs W7 debate.

XP vs. Vista is no contest.

As for XP vs. 7, I do very much like the fact that Windows 7 seems to be capable of recovering from driver crashes sometimes whereas XP would either lock up or just immediately BSOD.

I don't really know anything about W7, so I won't be able to contribute to this dispute anymore. Sad Oh well. Sweat Drop

Both are alright, I guess. XP is a bit more dependable though.

I use Vista and im so used to it now that I personally wouldn't go back to XP. My bro got Windows 7 and I cant see anything that would make me make the switch. I know some things arnt compatible with Vista such as a few of my old PC games but nothing a patch of the internet cant fix... Windows 7 may be faster but meh... nothing major, Its only the tecnho heads that will sniff out all these differences that to the average user is non-existent.

Fox: I must say... life can be complicated..... when you have question(s) (via email) ... and it seems like they sort of get ignored. :D ; Fun, (And sometimes, a person may respond, and completely not answer the question.... so like... 3-person conversation.) Hahahaha!!
January 15, 2018, 07:26:16 PM
Fox: (path) 1 text=(address) char=(address) free=(address) ; << Well, closer to this... but yeah... even if I do choose to have defaults in the code, I could still use this method for overrides.
January 15, 2018, 07:24:28 PM
Fox: So like (path) 0 text=(address) char=(address) len=(number) ; (path) 1 free=(address) ; Or something. But that's just a quick example.
January 15, 2018, 06:59:14 PM
Fox: Hopefully. I was wanting to make it so you could put in the addresses/etc. as one of the arguments in the path. Hm?
January 15, 2018, 03:37:07 PM
KyleRunner: Nice! I hope you'll add compatibility with others games (GS1, Mario Golf and Tennis) soon.
January 14, 2018, 11:40:09 PM
Fox: Okay. Posted (in Downloads section) an initial cutdown version for now, for my text compressor. Basically to separate the code from my Editor for anyone who wants to mess with it. It only supports GS2, because I still didn't add the addresses/etc. for the other games.
January 14, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
Fox: Okay! Going to need to think how I want it to work. Initial thoughts is maybe have a number of arguments in the filepath thing. And have a number of shortcuts (files) to be used as examples. Assuming there are no problems.
January 14, 2018, 10:38:24 AM
KyleRunner: Well... I'm used to editing text ina a text editor, so... yes! Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2018, 11:38:43 PM
Fox: (Text editor = Text Document like notepad.)
January 13, 2018, 11:38:21 PM
Fox: Would you prefer during the text editing in a text editor? (Like what gstoolkit lets you do?) I could probably make a separate tool or something to compress it.
January 13, 2018, 10:10:02 PM
KyleRunner: Ok. Once I finish my Lost Age translation, I'll try a Mario Golf one. Thanks. (But I'll need help).
January 13, 2018, 10:03:17 PM
Fox: If you want to make it "permanent" (part of a hack), then you'd edit code in the ROM that writes to this location of the IDs you'd want to change. (You can find these locations by using a breakpoint debugger like SDL-H or no$gba.)
January 13, 2018, 10:00:11 PM
Fox: Reload/switch = Recommended to be done through Debug mode/warp menu, ofcourse... since doors seem to appear as if they were disabled? ; 03001238:01 and B+Start to get to warp menu.
January 13, 2018, 09:55:39 PM
Fox: @Kyle Runner = It might be, but you'd have to use the correct addresses for Mario Golf, rather than for GS2 as I have it right now. ; @raijinken = Yes. 02000454 = ID of leader. (Change this and reload/switch room you are in, enjoy.)
January 13, 2018, 02:23:29 PM
raijinken: Hey guys, is it possible to somehow change the lead character on the map? Was wondering. I remember there was a cheat to use Jenna, but what if I wanted Isaac, or Piers?
January 13, 2018, 02:10:03 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, Fox *
January 13, 2018, 02:09:37 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, is your text editor compatible with Mario Golf (GBA)?
January 11, 2018, 08:33:13 PM
Fox: But if it isn't an oversight, I still can't imagine it being that useful.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:24 PM
Fox: part, ofcourse.
