  1. Hydraulic Line is what I guessed and that was confirmed by the Poster:

    "The Hydraulic line burst, causing hydraulic fluid to spurt up in the air,  it caught the exhaust which ignited a fire."

     

    In the USA, most drivers sit on the left-side of the vehicle, except for Post Office and Garbage Truck drivers, whose work is done on the right side.  I was a little surprised that he jumped out to the right, through the fireball, but perhaps his exit to the left was blocked. 😮 

     

    BTW, the fire went out as soon as the hydraulic system lost pressure and was no longer spraying fluid out into the air. 👩‍🚒

    Aaaaaaaaaaah thank you mate!! You just ended my several years lasting suffering.

    Did set it to 0 and it's done. :)

    Cool

     

    Oh, No! 😮  ( at your "several years" of suffering!)  Playing through a PITA situation like that shows your 💌 for the game. @GwS BadBoy

     

    I edited the title to add [mouserate] to possibly help someone in the future.

    sorry man, in future, i add numbers to the pics, its easier as to count the pics :ph34r:

     

    There is nothing for you to be sorry about!  On the other hand, I sometimes do lose track when I 💤 in the middle of scrolling down the screen. 😄 

  4. Thanks to pic#2, I learned this today:

    A greedy algorithm is a simple, intuitive algorithm that is used in optimization problems.

     

    The algorithm makes the optimal choice at each step as it attempts to find the overall optimal way to solve the entire problem.

     

    Pic #6, Mom or Dad spelled "Psych" wrongly.  Maybe it was Grandpa.

    Btw it didnt came from there

    Thnx for the informations 

     

    It is just an amusing coincidence.  I had thought that your name might come from something in your culture, but I got sidetracked by that Old US Government document about seeds. 😄 

     

    ADDED:  I just ran "Burro Oscuro" through the Google Translator, which said that it was Italian for "Dark Butter"!

    I then clicked on "Spanish" and the translation changed to "Dark Donkey", as I had suspected.  😄 

     

    It is a plant native to Mexico and Honduras and is often called "Donkey's Tail".

    they have "dual" bios,

     

    I have similar on this 'older' ASUS mobo.  I was hinting that he could keep a "known-working" BIOS in one and try to update the other one, if updates can be found.

     

    My Win10 pro update to 2004 was delayed for many months.  I would try it every month and my system would not boot.  I had to revert to the last installation each time.  I also had to use various system-backups to external discs tools, sometimes.  It finally worked last October.  The OS thought it could update, but there was some problem.

     

    Maybe I should have booted to a Linux-on-DVD and had a look at the windows records-files, but those are such a morass of files that it would probably have done no good. 😄

    Where you get name "Dark Donkey" from ?  Myself Dark Knight. 

    Maybe he read it here:

     

    U. S. DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE. 

    BUREAU OF PLANT INDUSTRY— BULLETIN NO. 137. 
    B. T. GALLOWAY, Chief of Burma . 
    SEEDS AND PLANTS IMPORTED 
    DURING THE PERIOD FROM JANUARY 1  TO MARCH 31, 1908
    INVENTORY No. 14; Nos. 21732 to 22510. 

    .....

    23783. "Burro Oscuro" (dark donkey). Extra good class; grown in poor soil.

    ......

     

     

     

     Chief of Burma ?  It seems that modern scans of 100+ year-old documents produced 'Burma' instead of 'Bureau'! 

     

    BTW, the guy's name was Beverly, just as some males in those days were named Joyce, etc.

    Motherboard:    Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd. Z77X-D3H  BIOS F15

    Grapich Card: Sapphire Nitro RX580 4GB GDDR5, mounted in the PCIE 16X slot.

     

    This site says that the card is compatible with the mobo : https://pcpartpicker.com/products/video-card/?compatible_with=qz3RsY

     

    There are some "skanky" websites offering BIOS Updates for that mobo ... 😄 

     

    NOTE:  I was still searching for "stuff" when @Vice86 posted above.  That first line is the tried & true first step in trouble-shooting pesky problems.  PITA, but avoids 'wandering paths.'

     

    From what I read, the Mobo has 2 physical UEFI BIOSs.

    Some old man is robbing my house, i know i'll record it and ring the police and in the mean time he can trash my patio doors??

     

    I wouldn't have needed the police in that instance, a small cough at the start would have sent him running and saved the doors

     

    No price is too big for a popular YT video! 😄

     

    Oops!  Less than 3,000 views now, but who knows what the total will be after Dj's "advertisement" here? 😄

    i thought same thing woulda been bad ass if we had tanks like that in ww2.lol

     

    Upon closer viewing, that appears to be a futuristic post-apocalyptic scene.  The soldiers appear to have futuristic gear and there seems to be vegetation growing on the various light-poles, etc.  Dose anyone recognize that statue in the background?

     

    Google Image Search said: "Possible related search: post apocalyptic us army" and I did find the source image here: https://www.itl.cat/wallview/xRTTTx_post-apocalyptic-us-army/

     

    @Dark donkey That is some interesting work!

    This imagery does not fit in the WWII timeline of Enemy Territory.  Did you mean it to be for different F|A Game?

    I spoke to the team on ETL discord they said they were big as they left the code in the pk3...I asked if they could leave it out, so they should be getting smaller.

     

    Does that mean that they left the original 'code' from the original map in the pk3 and added more 'code' that modified it into the ETL version? 

     

    That would be a safer method of testing a Beta version...

     


    @Achilles90  Why would they put the truck's tailgate up like that?  It must have bothered someone on the Mod-team that low-skill players like me can "lie-in-wait" in there and get a cheap kill. 😄

    Just out of curiosity, how many maps are in your etmain folder? ETPub used to have a similar bug when you had too many maps in etmain

     

    DareDevil has suggested reducing the number of PK3s that we have.  Unfortunately, ET loads all of them at run-time, so we can't really tell when each was last used to play a map.  You could manually delete or move the files that you don't remember playing recently and the server will cause a download if you are wrong. 😄  I should go look at mine to perform that cleaning-out.

    193 maps

     

    I have 197 pk3s, taking up 2.02 GB of disk-space.  Those are compressed files, so I might assume that ET de-compresses them as needed, but I don't now for sure.  It could de-compress them into a "current-map-space" or some such.  I should go look at the ET source-code, even though I don't know C++.  The comments and the variable-names usually explain enough of what is generally going on. 😄
