Day 2 - Grindan Adventures

And so, the journey of Fagbalz continues. Armed with Pokeballs, I begin looking around for Pokemon, mostly for Pokedex data. My first encounter is a Hoothoot. Tempting flyer, but I much prefer Spearow early in the game since it knows a flying move (Peck). This Hoothoot is too weak to stand up to much of a beating:

Tackle x2

Next up is... the exact same Hoothoot. The fight went even faster this time:

Tackle *crit* OHKO

I think at this point I'm going to devise a system for battle layouts. Obviously, if I use the same attack more than once, it'll be *whatever* xX, where X is the number of times used. OHKO means it went down in one hit. [b]SE![/b] will denote super-effective attacks. *CAP* will denote a successful capture of the Pokemon. *XXX* will denote a status ailment, like PSN or FRZ.

Third battle on my list is a Rattata, level 3. I might just catch this, if only for the Pokedex data.

Tackle *crit* OHKO

Hmm, maybe not. Anyways, Pyro grows yet another level here:

Pyro - Level 9
Attack - 17
Defense - 15
Spl. Atk. - 18
Spl. Def. - 16
Speed - 18
HP - 28

Level 2 Rattata is a pushover.

Tackle x2

I almost made an attempt to capture this, but I need a Pokemon of decent level to do the battling once Pyro gains another level or 2 to prevent constant OHKO's. I think if I don't catch anything decent by level 10, I'll just start running from battles.

Level 2 Hoothoot:

Tackle x2

At this point, I figure, why not go to Route 30/46? I can catch most of my beginning party: Pyro, Spearow, Geodude, Poliwag, perhaps Jigglypuff.

I come across a level 3 Hoothoot and decide to try a new tactic. Noticing that one Tackle brings it down to about half health, I hit it with Smokescreen in an attempt to get it to Growl.

Tackle
Smokescreen x3
Tackle *CAP*

Amazing. As it turns out, my first Pokemon is not Rattata, for once. OHHEMMGEE. Being the sport I am, I name my new minion Mr. Hoot.

Mr. Hoot - Level 3
Attack - 7
Defense - 7
Spl. Atk. - 7
Spl. Def. - 8
Speed - 9
HP - 17

Knows: Tackle, Growl

Not great stats, but I need something to start myself off. I give Mr. Hoot a Potion, make him hold a Berry, and slip him into the first slot.

Mr. Hoot's first battle is against a level 2 Rattata.

Tackle
Tackle *crit*

That went well. He gets almost enough experience for a level. Next up is a level 3 Hoothoot, only female. This is going to be a dumb fight, I can tell.

Tackle *crit*
Tackle
Tackle *crit*

Wow, critting up a storm today. This is enough for a level:

Mr. Hoot - Level 4
Attack - 8
Defense - 8
Spl. Atk. - 9
Spl. Def. - 10
Speed - 9
HP - 19

I finally make it into Route 46. Strangely enough, the Geodude I picked up here in Gold I used for most of the game. I feel the same thing will happen here, as the Rock Throw he/she learns at level 11 is super-effective against the birds of the first Gym, and the Magnitude he/she learn at level 16 can decimate the bugs of the second Gym. First up is a Geodude, luckily. Only problem is, it's level 2. Not wanting to waste time and HP trying to take it down, I simply run away. Second battle is just a level 2 Rattata, which I promptly blow away:

Tackle x3 (Hoothoot uses the Berry here because of low HP)

Next battle is against the exact same Pokemon and goes the exact same way. Easy XP. Third battle is... the exact same Pokemon, and goes the exact same way, only I miss the first Tackle attempt somehow, and get critted twice in a row down to 1 HP. Goddamn it I hate that annoying alert noise. DEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOODEEDOO I give Mr. Hoot a Potion and continue on to find a FOURTH level 2 female Rattata. Jesus Christ, this thing does not give up! So I kick it's ass again, critting on the first Tackle, and Mr. Hoot levels up:

Mr. Hoot - Level 5
Attack - 9
Defense - 9
Spl. Atk. - 10
Spl. Def. - 12
Speed - 11
HP - 21

Oh my God, fuck Rattatas. This one is level 3, but still, fuck it. I'm going to Cherrygrove or wood or whatever the fuck it is after this because Mr. Hoot is going to run out of Tackle PP. Realizing that Poliwag is only around at night, I head out on Route 30 to try and catch one. First on Route 30 is a level 4 Hoothoot, but I don't really feel like fighting until I find a Poliwag, so I run. I continue to run until I find a Spinarak. Figuring it's a good time to have some Poison in the party, I attempt to catch it:

Tackle
Tackle *CAP*

Level 3 male Spinarak is now mine. I name him Mr. Spider.

Mr. Spider - Level 3
Attack - 9
All others - 7
HP - 15
Knows - Poison Sting, String Shot

I then go back to the Pokemon Center really quick to heal up and put him in front. I also save at this point. Mr. Spider's first battle is against a Hoothoot of the same level. Knowing I am outclassed in the speed department, I expect the first hit and ready myself with a String Shot:

String Shot
Poison Sting
Poison Sting *PSN*
Poison Sting x3

Holy shit, this thing is WEAK. I probably would not have won without that Poison effect and a Berry I stuck on him before the battle. Next battle is against a clone of Mr. Spider, and I run away to avoid the stupidity that will inevitably come with it. After that, it's another level 3 Hoothoot. This will hopefully give him a level.

String Shot
Poison Sting *PSN*
Poison Sting x3

Thankfully, the Poison effect saves me yet again, and Mr. Spider is now level 4.

Mr. Spider - Level 4
Attack - 10
All others - 8
HP - 17

Wat? I just found a Zubat. I didn't think those things were supposed to be outside caves. This is going to be a ridiculously slow fight; Zubat is resistant to Poison Sting, and Mr. Spider is resistant to Leech Life.

Poison Sting x2

Pretty quickly, I realize the futility of the situation and decide to switch to Pyro. I hit it once, then buy some time with Smokescreen so it can leech back to enough health for a second Tackle. It takes forever, because not only is Pyro resistant to Leech Life, Zubat misses with it's attack a couple times.

Tackle
Smokescreen x3
Tackle *CAP*

A level 3 female Zubat is now mine. My first female Pokemon will be fittingly named Ms. Bat.

Ms. Bat - Level 3
Attack - 7
Defense - 7
Spl. Atk. - 6
Spl. Def. - 7
Speed - 8
Knows - Leech Life

Wow, this thing is terribad. When I capture Ms. Bat, it suddenly becomes sunny out, as 4 AM is the cutoff point for night. No Poliwag for me today, so I'm done. A recap of my team:

Pyro - Level 9
Mr. Hoot - Level 5
Mr. Spider - Level 4
Ms. Bat - Level 3

I save to reflect my new Pokemon capture and quit for the night.

Beginning - New Bark>cherrygrove>new Bark

I download the ROM, start the game up, and am treated to an interesting cutscene prominently showing some Pokemon's ass, plus a bunch of Unown.

New game, boy, 11:20 PM. Cutscene with Oak and Wooper. That thing looks so dumb. Plus, it's immune to electric, so the first time I tried to attack it in Gold with my Mareep, I was like, "WTF is this shit?". Continuing the cunscene, I name myself Fagbalz because that name is awesome. Walked out of my house, grabbing the Poke Gear, and headed over to that Elm's house/lab/whatever. Wait a sec... who is this lady, and why the fuck is she in my house? Her daughter wants to be Elm's assistant... m'kay. That won't happen, I'm sure.

HEY, LISTEN

So, I'm not sure what to take as a starter. Chikorita blows, fuck that. I used Cyndaquil in Gold, and he was pretty useless until I got to the Steel-type gym, where he still had no fire attacks better than Ember and couldn't take out a Steelix. Totodile seem interesting, but slow. I guess I'll try him. lol, no I won't. I take Cyndaquil and name him PYRO because I'm original like that. Totally didn't do that in Gold as well.

Got a Potion from Elm's assistant. Sure doesn't look like a chick.

Head out the door, let my rival kick me in the balls a few times because I llllllllove it.

Already wishing I had a damn bike... why can't you be like, y'know... not poor and own one already?

WHOA, THE ROUTES NOW HAVE THEIR OWN POP-UP ICON. I LOVE THIS GAME ALREADY.

First battle... will it be something epic and exciting? OF COURSE NOT. Whereas in Gold I found Sentret, a Pokemon I had never heard of before, my first fight in Crystal is against a Rattata. Totally original! I definitely did not fight this thing first in Red, Blue, or Yellow, nope!

Tackle
Tackle
Tackle

The early game is described as such: "He who Tackleth first wins. No exceptions."

I take a jaunt onto Route 46 to see if I can find a Jigglypuff for some good XP. LOLNO. My second battle is against a Geodude... fuck. I throw a couple Leers in there, just to shake him up and throw him off-guard, but he continues to Tackle incessantly! Why God, whyyyy?

Leer
Leer
Tackle (Berry because I'm getting my ass kicked by a level 2 rock)
Tackle
*miss* (What the fuck. How do you miss something slower than dogshit?)
Tackle
Leer
Tackle

I get up to the Berry tree without any more fights and make Pyro hold it because the little fucker is getting his shit kicked by rocks. Hop the fence, and BAM! Rattata. Here's my level!

Tackle
Tackle *crit*

Pyro - Level 6
Attack - 12
Defense - 11
Spl. Atk. - 14
Spl. Def. - 12
Speed - 13
HP - 22

Pyro learned Smokescreen, which is a completely useless move unless you're being outclassed by a faggot with a Raticate that likes to Quick Attack/Hyper Fang spam.

Walk into Cherrygrove and follow the old pedophi- ahem, man's tour to get a map. lol, the Pokemon Mart sells BALLS. "Here... It's my house! Please come inside, I have candy. :3"

Heal and head to Route 30. Can't wait for the Tackle spam coming in the Rival battle. Grabbed the 2 Berries, one from the tree and another from the man in the house. Ooo, my next battle is against a Hoothoot. I caught one of these things in Gold and tried to use it. I quickly realized it's outclassed by Pidgey.

Smokescreen (for the hell of it)
Tackle
Tackle
*miss* (-BLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP-)
Tackle

Grab the Antidote above the house, although I can't imagine any poison types exist this early. Grab the Psncureberry outside Mr. Pokemon's pad, also wonder why that's there. Just give me something useful, like a Berry...

Go in and get the MYSTERY EGG. OMG, WHAT COULD IT POSSIBLY BE? I DON'T EVEN KNOW, I'M SO FUCKIN' EXCITED. Talk to Oak, blah blah blah, Pokedex, time to get back to Elm. I get a call outside talking about a break-in, oh noes! I don't give a fuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Figures, the first tuft of grass I touch has a... wat? Poliwag? I don't remember this... and it knows Bubble. Super.

Tackle
Tackle
Tackle (Berry is used here because I'm taking a whopping 5 damage a turn to this fucker for having a type weakness ALREADY)
Tackle
Tackle

Pyro - Level 7
Attack - 14
Defense - 13
Spl. Atk. - 15
Spl. Def. - 14
Speed - 15
HP - 24

"L | Miyari: cyndaQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEL"

Continuing back, I figured I might as well get Pyro to level 8. Next up on the kill list is Spinarak. There's my poison. It is just now that I noticed the character models move. It made me do a double-take and say "What the... fuck?" out loud.

Tackle *crit*
Tackle

Then Hoothoot:

Tackle x4

Pyro - Level 8
Attack - 15
Defense - 14
Spl. Atk. - 17
Spl. Def. - 15
Speed - 17
HP - 26

Time to massacre Rival. I wonder what I'll name him? Heal at the Pokemon Center and walk out of town to confront him. His battle music is so fuckin' awesome. He has Totodile, of course, and it's gonna go down quick.

[b]RIVAL BATTLE 1[/b]

Pokemon:
Totodile - Level 5

---

Tackle x3
*miss* (^%#%$&^%$!)
Tackle x2

Easy win, easy money, but no level. That's gay. Sorry bro, it's pretty tough to be a Pokemon champion whem I'm going to constantly kick your ass. So back at Elm's, it's time to give my Rival a name. Do I give him a real, respectible name? Of course not. Asshat works perfectly. Grabbed my balls from the aide (insert dirty joke here), then talked to my mom. Normally I would have her save my money, but last game it resulted in her buying shit I didn't need and me being out of money until the Lake of Rage. I save near the exit of New Bark, and decide to leave it for another day.

Upgrading/flashing Nvidia Video Card Bios

I've had a few people asking how they could flash some "better" bios on to their Nvidia video cards. Be it for upgrading a stock model to a superclocked one or just to get it up to date. Seeing how I have changed the bios on pretty much every card I owned I decided to make this blog post in case it will help someone.

Few notes:
Bios flashing can render your video card unbootable if done improperly by forcing an incompatible bios from a different video card or by interrupting the flash process.
I've had multiple bad flashes but have recovered from all them thanks to the following 1) Making backups 2) Having a spare video card/onboard video output. If the flash fails and the card is unbootable you can simply boot using a different video card and flash the backup bios to correct the bad flash.

To begin:
Get the bios file that you wish to use. If all you want to do is flash to get some better clocks then you can browse the Bios Collection over at Tech Power Up:
http://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/. Alternatively you can edit a bios file yourself but I won't be getting into that right now.

Make a backup of your existing bios. For this you can use GPU-Z (if you prefer a gui) or you can use nvflash, a tool that you will be using to flash the bios later on.

Backing up the bios using nvflash:
The syntax for using nvflash to make a backup is the following
QUOTE nvflash -b bios_name_here.rom
If you aren't good with using the windows command line then you can simply put nvflash into a folder on your main drive (lets say C:\nvflash) and type the following into the windows command prompt
QUOTE "C:\nvflash\nvflash.exe" -b "C:\nvflash\bios-name.rom"
This will save the backup bios to the folder specified.

The windows command prompt can be accessed by pressing the Start button --> clicking run --> typing "cmd" into box and clicking enter.

Flashing the new bios:
Once you have a backup of your current bios and have your new bios ready you can use nvflash to flash the new bios onto your card. The syntax for that is
QUOTE nflash example_bios.rom
If you got a bios from the techpowerup site then it is probably named .bin and you should rename it to .rom after that you can simply type the following into the cmd prompt window
QUOTE "C:\nvflash\nvflash.exe" "C:\nvflash\new_bios_name.rom" and follow the prompts that appear.

The syntax for dual card solution (GX2) would be:
Backing up
QUOTE Card 1
nvflash -b -i1 card1.rom

Card 2
nvflash -b -i2 card2.rom
FlashingQUOTE Card 1
nvflash -4 -5 -6 -i1 bios1.rom

Card 2
nvflash -4 -5 -6 -i2 bios2.rom

Any questions or comments can be posted here.

Just Some Passing Thoughts

Recently, Lord Zymeth has made a new topic 'mod nominations'. This means that a new moderator would probably be made some time in the near future. Ive been moderator of these forums for a really long time now, and i've learned many things about managing a forum, and the nature of human beings. This forum has florished under the noble management of its leaders and has provided an excellent place for the BR community to discuss strategies and players.

Punishing a person harshly will usually make them act even worse when they come out of their suspension, which just gets them another suspension and the cycle continues. And humiliating a person publicly will usually make them pissed of and coming back for more (if you've been here long enough, you would remember Pro-assASSin which makes crazy comebacks once every so often), which is why I operate mainly through private messages. And a small warning is usually enough to make sure people don't go rampaging around the forums, so you don't see extremely heavy bans here like you do on other forums. Its been a good reign so far, and credits go to the managers of the forum and the noble-minded players of BR.

The forums already have two moderators (me and cptheslayer), plus Lord Zymeth the admin, who sometimes acts as mod. cp is a great guy, who's been here for a really long time and is a master of BR, plus he has lots of common sense, so he is deserving of his position of mod. Lord Zymeth (aka Mana) is the awesome dude who is credited with creating these forums in the first place, and has probably saved the BR game from dying out due to loss in popularity.

Ive been here as mod for several years now, and my activity is starting to die out. I used to browse the forums almost obsessively, and there was a period when I actually looked at the forum every hour just to check for new posts. But nowadays, i'm playing the game less and less, and activity on the forums is decreasing too. Very few people have actually versed me in multiplayer (you wouldn't want to play against me anyway, im really shit at competitive play ). Sometimes i'm not here to ban naughty people, and if cp and Lord Zymeth is gone too, then that naughty person is going to rampage all over the forum!

Since my activity is waning, people have been getting indignant over this. And of course, I understand this. I'm happy to step down as moderator to make way for a new one. But on one condition: the moderator is suited for the job.

The new moderator has to be level-headed and has common sense, but also is in touch with the BR community and know how to manage difficult situations. For this reason, I implore the BR community not to vote for a shoddy person to be mod. You should vote for whoever you think will manage the forum well, not whoever is 'your friend' or 'is a good player'. Remember, you're voting for the person who decides whether you get banned or not.

So don't vote someone like, say, Nekromant. Sure, he's a great player and a great guy, but will he make a good mod? Hint: this guy has been banned for three days for flaming. So perhaps he is not a good mod?

What about, say, Baxter or Ben? They both love BR, and play online alot. They are also are very active on the forums, are smart and have common sense. So perhaps they would make good mods?

This is totally up to you to decide, but hopefully you will make the right choice. This is futsalfred AKA Sinophile, signing out (maybe forever).

Blogging About Blogs

There are several reasons why people blog. Some use it as their soap box to tell people what's wrong with the world, as if its readers didn't already know that. Some use it to talk about their day, as if anyone cares. Some use it to talk about new and exciting beta software that they are using, as if... well, that could be interesting. But then again why do people care about beta software?

So, that's my topic for today, beta software! I'm sure that many of you have seen something to be involved in the beta for a MMORPG, Windows, ect...

The question is, why? Now, some people will actually take the time to report bugs and such, but most of the people are all excited by the new features, only to find out they have no been enabled yet. Doh! Forgot it was beta...

To me, any new piece of software or hardware is in beta, even if it says finished. New socket motherboard? err... Anyone remember AMD's Socket 754 for its awesome Athlon 64? If you had waited a few months, you would have read that there were several issues with that socket and behold, the Socket 939! By the way, I still use that today. I just upgrade the processor, ram, and video card and suddenly I have a brand new computer.

The same goes with consoles. All you people who bought a Xbox 360 the day it came out... Why? What games did you play on it? Perfect Dark? I'm sure there were a couple good games on it when it first came out, until your xbox died.

Now, i'm not a xbox hater or console hater. I have a Wii and PS3 as a matter of fact. The Wii is mainly for get togethers with family where we like to play Wii Sports, Mario Kart, ect... All those family friendly party games. The PS3 is for my sports and RPG fix. Anyway, this paragraph is just a side note from my main point.

I need to wrap this up so I can brush my teeth, but I hope you guys can see what i'm saying. To top off this blog and what you can expect me to write about in the future... I have no idea. Maybe some live nudes or something... So check back often

"No SIgnal"
Piece of crap computer is teh ded.
I disassembled the whole thing, discharged the power supply and tried getting power with just the mobo and psu but no luck. I tried my spare psu and zilch.
My guess is cpu/mobo and possibly psu.

Doesn't matter though. Tuition is due Tuesday, along with rent, cellphone, phone, internet, etc..


I'm boned.

Fuck you, computer.

Blog System

I have installed the blog addon for Invision Board as one can see. Still a few problems like the Banner Logo is weird (lacks the normal background) and the friendly URLs are broken, but I expect to get this all fixed soon.

The skin should now work fine with the Blog addon, I fixed up the CSS and added the missing images.

Tell me what you think of the blogs component!
