Praetorians 1.05 patch

Fileplanet download

Basically, it fixes the bug with troops becoming invulnerable after splitting them. It includes the 1.04 fixes as well, so you can apply it directly to a fresh install of the game (any language, including eastern versions). It is not officially supported, but I’m very confident that it works.

My big thanks to all the people who helped with this, and those who had the patience to wait this long. Better late than never I guess! 🙂

Half Life 2 went gold?

And I still own that 3-year old piece of crap PC. I hope the game really is so good that I finally find an excuse to upgrade.

It will be interesting to see how the whole deal with Steam sales vs. retail goes… especially with the "preload" trick that Valve pulled off: removing the pains of having to wait for the download while other people are already playing, means that more people will be willing to go the Steam route. Will that be a significant number?

Will be a busy end of year with Dawn of War, Fable, HL2, Halo 2 and San Andreas (plus Metroid Prime 2 if you are a Gamecuber).

I started playing Fable on the XBox. It looks great so far: varied, beautiful and polished. My only complaints are some control issues and the usually crappy cutscenes consisting of little more than slow dialogue.

Strange day…

Now for something completely different. Since a few days ago, some people have decided to use our parking spots at the office. Different people each time, this wednesday it was a police car that invaded our space! (Our offices are located near a police station)

Today there were two cars, so after the usual process of asking around with no results, I simply moved my car to block the exit of our area of the garage, and left a note to come upstairs if someone needed to exit. I specifically left out my name to make things more embarrassing for them.

Sure, a few hours later while I was having lunch, a guy showed up at the door, looking unsure who to ask. My boss walked up to him, and the dude started saying something about a car blocking the exit while he produced a police ID from his wallet, surely expecting to intimidate.

My boss looked at him and said "So what?" The guy lost his arrogance, and was informed that I’d be back in 30 minutes or he could go get me at the restaurant. He sat down and waited, and was very polite and ashamed when I arrived and unblocked the way.

The other offender showed up an hour later, very impolite and defensive.

Some people just have no respect for others. When it is the police authority that behaves like that, you just wonder who you really need protection from. Anyway, this event provided for tons of jokes all through the day.

Feels good to be slowly populating the Gallery with more photos.

My up and coming plans regarding this weblog system is to remove the requirement to register in order to write a comment. Who knows, maybe some day someone will bother replying to a post. 🙂
