The old "Robot Nimh" game for Tandy TRS-80 Model 1

Q: The old "Robot Nimh" game for Tandy TRS-80 Model 1

back in ye days of olde There was a game for the Tandy TRS-80 Model 1 called "Robot Nimh"
You had Robots in (4?) rows, and the one on the end would "shoot" the number of Robot's you typed in. Object I beleive (been several years since I played it) was the human player had to have the last Robot standing to win the game from the computer.

QUESTION: has this game ever been ported over to run with QuickBasic, or QBasic, & if so where can it be found?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey everyone,
        I am trying to get the REST queries to work with the sharepoint end points instead of graph end points. I first created an app with relevant permissions and have given it the admin consent. Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end
point with https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com as resource. I am then using the access token retrieved to give the rest call to https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com/_api/v2.0/drives/b!3indYSbqZ0-hVSPnCgIZy-2xDMh7jH9AuQnEzJMc6TEfQoSJvJT-R6tT0lFBQiPr/root/delta
but it is failing with "error":{"code":"generalException","message":"General exception while processing"}}. The REST response code is 401 Unauthorized. I have filed a Microsoft support ticket but they
have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.
Thanks,

my computer loaded a game into a folder that cant be accessed.. this could be the source of many of my game problems

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

I installed an old game (Hexen II) and I chose to install both the normal version of the game as well as the GL version of it. I can run other GL games, but not this one. When running the normal version, it has a flickery horizontal bar effect and freezes on the game loading screen. When I run the GL version, I get three errors, and the game never runs. The errors are: "Genport I/O initialization failure", "grSstSelect: non-existent SST", and "wglCreateContact failed". All of these errors only give the option to choose "OK". What might be wrong?

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".


Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":




The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:




I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:




Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:

I manage the Networks for several companies remotely and not all users are computer friendly enough to know both their username and password, only their Password. So, when doing maintenance and I log on to a PC as an administrator or other user I will often

HI, I am running Windows7 Ultimate Service pack1.
When I conect my Sony HDR-SR12E it reconises it as a "Handycam" and not the Sony model Number, which is needed to install the Sony Motion Picture Broser software to enable me to transfer and burn the content.
Thus it is usless????
I have read and tried everything in sight and sent a help to Sony without a reply.
Also when I go to disconect the "Handycam" from the computer using the safe remove method all it shows is the Open Printers & Devices column and not the "Handycam" icon which should read Sony HDR-SR12E.
If I go to the Printers and Devices it shows the "Handycam" but I cannot delete the icon.

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the

As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?

I have a Wacom Graphire 4 Tablet Model: CTE-440 that was opened and tried out when I purchased it years (essentially unused) ago but my class instructor did not permit it to be used in that class. I now have a need for it but when I tried to load it on my ASUS Win OS 8.1 laptop I get "Platform Not Supported" and cannot go further.

Is it possible to use this on my new computer and how do I get it to work? I hate to have to buy a new pen/tablet device when the Wacom I have has never really been used. If it's not possible for it to work on Win OS 8.1, will it work on Win 7 OS? I will need help to set it up on the older laptop if that is the only way to use this device.

Well I have a old discontinued hp 170 color copier. Awhile ago it started "bleeding" ink. It finally got to the point where it was going through one black cartridge a week. So we decided to buy a new one. Well boss wants to know if anything can be replaced to fix it. I'm guessing no, but I could be wrong. So here I am, if anyone has any info on replacement parts message back.
Thanks,
Svelay
 

A:Solved: Hp model 170 color copier is "bleeding".

Yes it can be fixed, at a high cost the cartridges are combination of print heat and storage tank and the print head is controlled by the printers main board, this is telling the print head to inject but not telling it to hold, therefore it's empting the tank probably threw one or two jets, that's why it takes a week to empty it, the only way to fix it is to send it to HP and let them fix it, there are no consumer replaceable electronics in it, it will cost more then two times what you paid for it when it was new.

Ok so I'm using a custom visual style made by another user however I don't really like the buttons used that I mentioned above. The creator states it is acceptable to change the theme to however you like as long as you don't redistribute it anywhere.

Ok so I opened up the .msstyles file (using Restorator) located in the theme folder of this VS. I went into the images directory and located what seems to be the images used for the buttons. Intuitively, it seems like it would make sense to replace those images with different ones (perhaps from another visual style) and it should change them. However, would this actually work? Could the theme get messed up in some other way (like proportions or something if the new button images are smaller)? I don't know of any other way to change them that would be easy.

But I did run into another problem. For some visual styles I can't even locate those buttons in the images directory. Where else would they be?

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!

I have a Windows 8 CD for repairing purposes.. however, I cannot load the BIOS/UEFI to change the boot order to load the optical drives first. I have also tried to remove the CMOS battery to fix it.. did not work. .
Also - Windows Boot Manager:

Hello guys, the last week I've been strugling with these nasty BSODs. At first I thought it was my HDDs as ntoskrn.exe somewhat hinted towards that from googling it. My HDDs have been causing a lot of trouble earlier as well due to their somewhat long years of service. However, I've recently reformated my computer and installed W7 on a brand new Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD hoping the BSODs would go away, they didn't.

I googled BSOD and I stumbled upon this forum and I thought I'd give it a try. I'm somewhat desperate, as I need my computer working for both work, school and amusement.

I've been trying to run Memtest in order to test my memory but without any results. I'm also currently running on only on 4GB chip instead of two, to see if the problem still exists. Also, without any results.

This is the second time I'm writing this thread btw, I was just about to post it and my PC crashed.

Here is my two logs + dxdiag (last crash didn't generate a log oddly enough).

Here is additional hardware/gear that I use:

Razer Megalodon 7.1 Headset
Razer Naga
Logitech G19
Logitech C920 (Webcam)
Corsair 750W PSU

My temperatures are also good. Both CPU and MB idles at around ~25. GPU's all good too. I'm also using a Corsair 650D chassi with dustfilters at both air-income so dust is minimal. On top off this, I use airpressure to clean away dust somewhat regularly and I also did exactly this 2 days ago when I reinstalled the pc.

Joy.cpl opens fine, and each device has "OK" next to it, but when I attempt to click "properties," no worky. Says "Necessary support files not found." I think this may have to do with my monkeying with DirectX, as 9.0c screwed over my joystick's compatibility with X-Wing Alliance, and I used a utility to uninstall it forcibly. I then proceeded to attempt reinstalls with 8.0 and 7.0, but neither worked. Now, after reinstalling 9.0c, the properties button remains unavailable, the joystick -still- doesn't work in X-Wing Alliance, and it's becoming very frustrating. I don't have my Windows 2000 cd as it is in CO with my dad--I do have a full copy on the hard drive, however. Both input devices worked before--one is a usb and one is a serial port. Essentially dxdiag tells me everything is fine regarding inputs, though dsound is apparently an older version, and ddrawex.dll was missing until I copied it back in from a source online. How can I, in order of importance:

A) Return the Properties button to normal functioning
B) Get X-Wing Alliance's aging software to detect my version of DirectX enough to recognize my joystick?

The basic problem with X-Wing isn't appropriate for this forum, natch, but apparently its joystick recognition interface is tied to an outdated dxdiag, and the "configure input" button results in a command to install DirectX 6.1--this didn't happen before with previous versions of DirectX,...

So I've been in the mood for some good RPGs lately and I've outplayed all of the other ones I have... I tried to play SWKOTORII (Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2) but the disc was too scratched up to work. I looked online and found that toothpaste works. A half hour later, BINGO, the discs start to work perfectly. The problem is that when I try to run it I get the message, "This game has not been installed correctly, please restore installation or reinstall". The discs look alot better but there are still a few (Not deep) scratches that remain, but I know discs scratched worse that still work. I read that this can also be caused by Anti Virus and such, and in that case, I have AVAST! Anti Virus and Spyware Terminator, anti Spyware.

Also, after fixing, I noticed that there are alot of circular scratches (Very shallow), but I'm guessing those are because of the toothpaste? I also was wondering if it was possible just to download a program to go through and find missing components for the game?

Thanks for all your help,
Evan
 

A:Solved: SWKOTORII "Game has not been installed correctly, please repair or reinstall"

I've read a lot of online debates about using toothpaste for fixing discs. The one thing I can say for certain is never clean/repair a disc in circles. Sure some home disc repair tools do so, but they do it uniformily. If you are cleaning or buffing by hand do it in straight lines from the center outwards.

So multiple issues here, including the SysInfo utility. (When I download Sysinfo utility, I get a "Parameter incorrect" error.)

Running Windows 10, not sure what else I can tell without SysInfo utility.

A few months back I posted an issue with my drives on another account (I have more space on the D: drive instead of the C: drive, but I can't really use it). Because of these space issues I moved steam over to the D: drive and now I'm getting "missing file privileges" when I attempt to update a game.

So far I've had these issues with Verdun, Europa Universalis 4 and Kerbal Space Program. Moving the install to the C: drive seemed to fix the issues with Verdun and Kerbal Space Program.

Before moving KSP to the C: drive some files were undeletable even with unlocker.

I have the game port microsoft sidewinder precision pro, force feedback, and some ch product flight sticks. I bought this brand new sabrent 6 channel 5.1 sound 3D pci card with a game port. Windows XP pro saw the card and installed the drivers. I hooked up the sidewinder went into the control panel to the game controller box. Search down the list and clicked on the sidewinder. When it loaded up I got a message from windows that it detects and is installing the sidewinder, but when I go to the controller box it says it is not connect. Now I triple checked to make sure it was connected properly with both joysticks. I checked to see if there were any updates for the sound card driver and the game port driver, no new updates, and the device manager shows that both are working properly.
I went into the BIOS to disable the on board sound, but that didn't help.
So anyone here know how to correct this? Looks like no matter what joystick I hook up I get the "not connected" error. Help!

I'll start out here by stating a problem I finally solved and then my question:

For months now I've been fighting that my hardware cursor disappears in World of Warcraft on my home theater system and time I switch modes to full screen and sometimes even in windowed mode and the reason for this is apparently due to me setting my display text size to 150% or 125%. I did find via some searching WoW customer service forums that if I set it back to 100% (default) OR 149% customized, my hardware cursor works again. I'm going to leave it at 149% because I really do need the larger text size on my HDTV and using 149%, I don't have to change back to normal, log out, log in, then start my game.

I'm glad I found this solution - but my question is, WHY is this an issue on Windows 7? Why does 149% work??

I did some searching and couldn't find any reports of this on XP - and as far as I can remember it only started happening to me when I upgraded my XP to Win7. I'm hoping Microsoft recognizes this as a bug and will fix it someday.

Thanks in advance!

A:Game "hardware cursor" disappears after changing text size

This has to do with DPI scaling. Technically, when you change DPI different images should be used (higher DPI - higher quality image).
150% probably is that border where image should be changed. Likely, in your case that image is missing or somewhat corrupt (or might be a Blizzard's bug).

But Microsoft knows about problems with scaling. In Windows 8 Dev. Preview, at least in Metro part of it, scaling is done in a different way.

Hello,

First off, your BSODs look remarkably like the ones here: BSOD while playing BFBC2 - Windows 7 Forums

So much so, in fact, that I wonder if PnkBstrB.exe is truly the offending process. See if you can find an updated version of the anti-hacking program.

Hi all,

I recently installed (and re-installed several times) Battle for Middle Earth 1 by EA Games. Whenever I play the game, after about 3 min all my characters die and I get the defeated message. I have a legitimate Best-Buy bought copy, and I read on some other forums that re-installing the game should help, and I tried running the game in XP service pack 2 compatability mode but nothing has worked. If anyone has had this problem before or has suggestions please let me know.

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Guys,

I am a little confused with regard to some of the mail options in Outlook Express. (I have version 6) What is the difference between the "Drafts" and "Outbox" folders?

Further how does the "Send Later" option work from the file menu? I always thought that "Send Later" was the same as using "Drafts" but what happend was that I was doing an e-mail, went to Drafts, or clicked on "Send Later" or Outbox and then after I clicked on "Send" doing a regular send, I checked my Sent folder and about 3 copies of the same message were delivered to the same person! (I only sent one message-not 3!)

What is the deal with the "Outbox" folder? Apparently that is not like the Drafts folder....correct?

What's the difference between doing a Save, Save As, and Send Later with regard to OE functions? If I want to save a message that isn't done yet, which of these 3 options should I use? (I.e, I want the message to go to the Drafts folder for example and stay there until I TELL OE to send it.) I think whatever I did above was that I modified my message and then click on where it just automatically sent next time I opened the message. A review of these features would be helpful!

Just for the record, I also use Yahoo Mail and find that so much easier!

Jack
 

A:Please Review OE "Send", "Drafts", and "Outbox" Options

Jack
To save an E-Mail to your Drafts folder for work on later then you use the File\Save option.
If you wish to save the E-Mail in another format such as .EML or .TXT or .HTM then you use the Save as function. You will also be required to specify a folder to save in or use its "My Documents" default.
Send later function if only one e-mail account exists will place the e-mail in the outbox and send it the next time you click on the send receive button. If you have multiple accounts then you can specify which account to send it from.
