General Rotors / Text to speech quandary.........
« on: March 30, 2011, 05:16:09 AM »
I don't know where else to post a question like this so maybe you guys know something...

Does anyone know of a text-to-speech program that can be programmed to "sing?" I used to have this thing called Streambox Magicspell in 2001, which was like a little animated desktop character with text-to-speech features. You could program tones into the text, so like by putting #22# or something before a word it'd say the word in a certain tone, etc. That program is long dead, however... and I am having trouble finding a similar thing.

Also I am not looking for vocaloid no anime little girl voices please. I need a kind of straight up boring microsoft sam computer voice with tonability.

If anyone can help me out that'd be awesome!!! I need this for a super cool project. THANKS...

General Rotors / Save Shaq Fu
« on: August 06, 2009, 03:41:00 PM »
Because that other sticky topic has gone stale, here is a beautiful new one.

SO. Thanks to the combined efforts of SuitCase, (webdesign) AJ, (words) and myself (I wrote like three or four words so I still count) the Save Shaq Fu campaign has a new face.

A content-filled, visually appealing face. Updates to the Shaqalogue are on the way, but will take a lil bit of time as we have to get photographs of each Shaq Fu doing its unique thing.

Now, more than ever, we need your help. WE MUST BECOME STRONG. WE MUST PREVAIL.

Are you Shaq enough?? :shaq:

General Rotors / SERtek - help my rams exploded
« on: June 27, 2009, 09:12:11 PM »
So one of my 1gb ramsticks seems to have kicked the bucket. Lately my PC has been doin' this thing where it'll boot up to the Compaq bios screen and then freeze. Usually to fix it I had to mess with the cmos battery thing (reseating it in its little slot, using the dipswitch thing to set it back to default, etc) but it kept doing it occasionally. Last night it froze up and wouldn't boot up for nothin', cmos be damned!! So I tried removing one of the ram sticks and VOILA everything worked like a charm. It's booted up just fine several times since then, and when I try to boot up with just that one ramstick in it now gives me danger beeps and won't boot, so I figure that's gotta be the problem.

BUT ANYWAY I need a new ramstick. This PC has only two ram slots so I think I'm gonna go for a 2gb stick for a nice 3gb total Can anyone reccomend a good brand or price to me? I looked around a bit but I kinda don't know if I need to be looking for something specific or if anything will work or if there's some great deals somewhere that I'm overlooking or what.


General Rotors / Shaq Fu - New photo(n)s!!
« on: May 20, 2009, 10:54:42 PM »
Alright, ladies and gents. The moment you've all been waiting for!

PRESENTING... The Shaq Staq, circa June 30th 2009.

Click for the biggins.

You done good, kids.

To those who have said that they would check the surrounding area for more copies, your help and donations would still be appreciated... B-)

I have spoilered all the previous updates to this post since it is large and cluttery. It's all there though!
HEY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey guys who said they would donate money?

You should probably get on the actual money giving thing soon. B-)

bwee woo bwee woo bwee woo
we won guys!! GOOD JOB. Alert status over. for now. Pledges are, however, still accepted from those who still wish to help this dream flourish but are too lazy to scour the local area for Shaq Fus. 8-)

Pictures will go up whenever the thing arrives.

bwee woo bwee woo bwee woo
Okay so a Mr. Toxic "the" Machine has brought this to my attention.


A copy of Shaq Fu signed by two internet famous men. I do believe this would be a worthy addition to the collection. HOWEVER, chances are, this shit is going to get hot, since it involves wacky internet famous mans. There's no way one man could justify paying more than $50 for a copy of Shaq Fu...
... no way that one man could...
So, anyone wanna donate a little bit to owning this piece of bad internet history scribbled on a Shaq Fu cartridge? AJ and I are going to wait until the last day to bid, and will split the costs, if it's not too crazy high up there. Our dear The Machine has offered to throw $40 into the pot, like a true hero. Is anyone else willing to step up to the plate !?
Basically we'll bid up to however high we feel comfortable (taking into account how much it'll cost each of us along with how many donations are offered) and then if we win I'll run around and collect money from people. (through paypal, or through fake birthday cards in the mail, or whatever.) Five dollars, ten dollars, maybe even one dollar. Anything would help!

come on guys you know you want to



Last summer, a little after my birthday, a group of friends led by my bro AJ come to pick me up for a night on the town. My ol' pal Joe was supposed to be there, but he was strangely absent. We all pile in the car and head off to our destination.

Upon arriving, there is a noise in the trunk. A ghastly moan.

I go to open up the trunk... and out pops Joe.

With a copy of Shaq Fu for the Sega Genesis.

This would not be the last Shaq Fu I received that night. Throughout the night, Joe would nonchalantly present me with yet MORE copies of this beautiful game at opportune moments. I ended up with 7 by the  time the festivities were over. I was pretty content.

Next time I saw Joe, several more copies came into my possession. Suddenly, 7 Shaq Fus became 9. I thought nothing of it.

Christmas 2008.

please try and endure aj's bad youtube intro. also my bad hair at the time jesus christ

13 Shaq Fus.

Shortly after this, I end up getting a great deal on a Game Gear with a ton of games included. There is.. there is also Shaq Fu in here. 14 Shaq Fus...

Cut to present day. I have 21 copies of Shaq Fu now. Five more are on their way to me through the mail. I have only actually purchased three of these, one by accident.

There is a website out there that promotes the collection and immediate destruction of Shaq Fu. This, frankly, disgusts me. AJ and I are now working to collect and preserve this priceless artifact.

(this sticker was on it when i bought it)

So we are currently working on . It will have some things relating to the actual game, as well as photos and origins of each Shaq Fu copy in my possession. Probably some other bullshit too.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN. Do you have a shitty old game store nearby? Do you happen to own this game already? Do you have a mega boner for drak? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should probably mail me a copy of Shaq Fu or two. Or three. Or four. PM me for mailing information. I am willing to strike a deal with those who do not wish to let a Shaq Fu out of their grasp so easily... but, really now. It's a good cause, isn't it.

tl;dr: pm me if you want to mail me copies of shaq fu

also before anyone asks yes that box under the topmost shaq fu with the guy on it is a shaq fu box. it just.. it just has a photo of rattleman taped to it. the cartridge also bears this photograph.

I went to King's Island (big Ohio amusement park fun place) on Sunday with AJ and pals and we saw an Arnold mascot suit man at the entrance.

I was too scared to interact with him though. SORRY.

General Rotors / I am pretty good at deals lately. (NGPC!)
« on: December 28, 2008, 01:32:46 AM »
So I've been looking for a Neo Geo Pocket Color (on ebay, mainly, since I have like no retro game stores for miles and miles :[) and was having trouble finding one for cheapish. Most were abour $44 with $10 shipping, typically with no games. But TODAY I spotted a new auction, just posted today, with a good condition NGPC, SNKvCapcom, and Metal Slug 1&2.. for $40 after shipping. aaa. Pleasure. I think those three games are somewhere around $35 typically all together, too. v good deal.

Do any of you chumps have, like, a good OLD_GAMES_STORE near you that carries NGPC/Gamegear/other handheld games still? I might be interested in buying some stuff by proxy through you, since a lot of these older handheld games are kind of expensive over the internets... :[ ] But I'm sure you could find them in a bargain bin of shit at a store for under five bucks.

I don't know why I keep making these bragging posts NOBODY CARES ABOUT OLD HANDHELDS...

General Rotors / Today I bought a Game Gear and 20 games for $35.

The Game Gear is in almost PRISTINE condition.


General Discussion / Strange Animal Crossing request. (Gamecube)
« on: December 10, 2008, 12:26:57 AM »
Alright. Does anyone here have access to both Animal Crossing for GC and some form of TV capture device?

I need... well, no, would LIKE some high quality sound and video footage of the Apple TV and Retro TV. Perhaps with the camera close enough to them so that you could see the exact pixels of the animations onscreen... yeees. If you happen to have AC and a capture card, but not either of these TVs, then you can give these universal codes to Nook, and he'll mail them to you for free...

Apple TV

Retro TV

... Nothing productive is going to come from this, probably, but, you know, if one of you is bored, then that'd be pretty gr8.

General Discussion / Eegra's First Annual Game Makin' Shindig
« on: July 29, 2008, 03:14:13 PM »
HEY PALS. So, some of you probably know about the fabulous gaming site Eegra, right? It has an octopus and stuff. Well, they held a GAME MAKIN' SHINDIG - a contest in which the goal was to make a new game over the  course of three months. The game had to adhere to a certain theme, and the theme for this first one was COLOR.

Well, in the utmost secrecy, me and Rixx worked on an entry for this shindig. (Well, it's more like Rixx programmed the whole thing and I helped with concept, gameplay ideas, and did sprites, BUT YOU KNOW. Also Spawz did music. Amazing music.)

Well anyway the winners were announced today, and all the entries were put up for download...

And.. oh, what's this? WHAT IS THIS HERE

[spoiler]we got second place 8-) HAY GUYS. [/spoiler]

SO HEY. There's that. Go download our game. Congratulate Rixx for all his hard work. Compliment drak on the best main character ever. Bask in Spawz's solid jams. ENJOY THE GAME.
