I'm actually surprised there's not an Xbox 360 controller next to the barcode scanner and pin entry device on the left :P



You seem to be forgetting the 360's horrible D-Pad.


I figured someone would mention that - the only reason I specifically said a 360 pad is cause I know Johnny uses one for his PC. I really do wish they made that d-pad better =/

Ya, I wish that DPad was better too. We were actually talking about bringing one in this morning, actually. Anyone any idea how well they work on Ubuntu? I imagine you have to do some voodoo to get it to play nice. Hell, you have to do some voodoo to get fucking microsoft MICE to work sensibly.

As for the widescreen thing? Yeah, you can thank moores law for that. Last year we got some shitty 1280x1024 15" touch screens for £450. This year we built new ones and these 23" Acer widescreen multitouch displays are the only ones we could get at scan. And they only cost £230.

Also, Overlord! Damn, you're still here? Been too long, I agree. Might spend a bit more time on here, I left around the time sonic cult started crumbling and couldn't really be arsed with it anymore but this place seems pretty on the ball these days.

EDIT: Hm, didn't notice gerbil had his own section in the forum. Could someone do me a favour and move it over?

I am sort of surprised that you didn't illustrate the epic till's capabilities with Project Shadow. colbert.png

This is a supposed fix for the 360 pad. Never tried it myself yet.

Quite curious about the widescreen Sonic 3 myself..

Yup, still hanging about =P Since CulT went into it's perpetual coma this has been the main board, really - and it's nice, there are faces here that I hadn't seen since A51. It's the old days in quite a few respects =P

Widescreen sonic 3? It's just running stretched fullscreen for the sake of the photo ;_;

Thanks for the 360 pad link, I'll give that a bash tomorrow!

Oh yeah, and nik?

Happy now? :P
... Quite a strange sensation, having to google project shadow. Lost my system drive and the backup on the same day in january, with all my project shadow stuff ;_;
