@bimmy-lee @HobbitGamer yea its been a long time comin.. like @Tyranexx said it's been raining for weeks and weeks. My day started with being up at 5am with the little pooch, Going to Menards and picking up some vegetable bulbs( after successfully growing my grass, I'm attempting to grow some veggies out of a trough looking thing) so I planted all that, pulled some weeds, cut the lawn laid down more grass seed and top soil in other spots. Then made water balloons for the kids and neighborhood kids. So needless to say i needed to fire up the grill. It actually rained on and off today but I found a perfect window to turn it on. Actually boiled them in some Guinness first then give them a light char. Made some pasta salad on the side. Finished off the night at a local ice cream parlor that's been around since the 20s. Nice day indeed

Actually... I have another ideas from my kickboxing characters.
I got the inspiration from Blitzball, Dragon Ball and Doraemon movie about Birdtopia.
Last time, i asked to one user here about suitable bird names for my Avian Kickboxer.
And I made my another project about Avian Kickboxer.
Take a look my samples.

@HobbitGamer - That’s a fast grower, and a nice looking tree. In some of the images, it looked like they may eventually have tree nuts, so that might explain the abundance of saplings. Cool that you have a spot like that so close to your house. I’d definitely go back for more. I wonder why your maple doesn’t grow? Those are pretty care free trees. They don’t even need much sun. If it’s totally exposed, maybe it’s actually too much hot GA sun. It can be intense. I’d love to grow some grape vines. We don’t have great weather for it, but it can be done.

@NintendoByNature - What a day, and you get today to recover... or do it all again. I’m in NE IN, so I think you, @Tyranexx and I are all complaining about the same rain. You guys just get it a few hours before I do.

@Anti-Matter - Those are great. I haven’t seen the bird kickboxers before. You should do more birds. Plenty to choose from, and you could stick with the light/dark theme you’ve established with the dove and raven. The raven would be a very smart, technical boxer. Hard to beat. The dove mates for life, so maybe it gets by on determination. Like Rocky.

Actually... I designed the Dove and Raven as Avian Kickboxer apprentice. (They have smaller body)
They are still Senior High School students.
Of course, other birds has been considered.
Based on their wings type i have considered Eagle, Japanese Crane, Woodpecker, Swallow, Macaw, Red Cardinal, Blue Jay, Albatross, Swan, Owl, etc.

My Dove and Raven have their own names.
I gave the Dove name as Caleb and the Raven as Russell. They got trained by the Avian Kickboxer Legend, Arnold the Eagle as their coach as well. Oh, well... I haven't drawn Arnold the Eagle. 😅

Oh... One more thing.
My Avian Kickboxers are not just only fight on the ground.
They also fight in the air by flying with their wings, like Dragon Ball fights 😉

@Anti-Matter - Please don’t ever change. Looks like your next job in the avian series is Arnie Eagle. We need to see the legendary trainer. Those are all really good ideas. It would make an excellent indie fighter on the eShop. The cardinal and blue jay would be very aggressive. I see a lot of them and woodpeckers around my home. The unquestioned avian king of my forest is the red tailed hawk. There’s a pair living nearby, and when the male is out hunting, every woodland creature goes silent. He’s like a fighter jet. I saw him pluck a seagull right out of the air once. Sometimes he eats mice and squirrels on my wood pile.

@Tyranexx Haha, yeah, I often find myself in the same situation, after posting one of my usual text walls, that always take some time to compose, edit and rewrite until I give them the final okay, and then suddenly, I find myself one or several pages further along in the thread, and then I have to browse back (well, HAVE to is a big word, but you'll probably get the picture) to see if I missed anything that I might also want to respond to or add my own two cents on.

@NEStalgia "i want to see every airport shut down if it's not going overseas"

Aren't there places "overseas" that are closer than NY to LA or Boston to San Fran? I haven't been on a plane in 17 years, my teen sons have never been on one, but I'm not taking a train for 3,000 miles. NY to Disney could probably ave a high speed rail, but that's about my limit. And as I said NY to Chicago, Chicago to St Louis. Nobody needs to go to Texas, and they don't want any of us there anyway. Airports have always been horrible, and w/ more people means more headache, and the whole world is going to hell anyway, but if we replaced planes w/ trains don't ya think the rail stations would be horrible as well? You think all the horrible trash and evil passengers are going to turn chummy just b/c they're on a train for 18 hours rather than a plane for 6? I don't think so. Not saying I have the answer, I'm saying there is no answer, no point in looking for one.

I tested a few games on the new laptop.

Going for the absolute best settings in Bioshock 3 and Soma seems to give mixed results, however they do run. Scaling down the settings fixes the frame rate drops.

Resident Evil Remake runs perfectly, which is new to me. That one goes at 2 frames per second in every other computer I test it on.

Steamworld Dig 2 had some weird screen tearing issues on the intro, but the game seems to run well after that.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to use a controller with Farming Simulator 17, but other than that it runs as expected. No rush to figure out anything else there since I do have that one for switch too. So whatever.

I may get Resident Evil 7 next time it goes on sale, since that one is dual pc-xbox one compatible. So two birds with one stone.

@bimmy-lee It could be the same rain in some cases. XD I live in southern IL.

@ThanosReXXX That's some of the problem for me as well. I sometimes also check notifications some time before I reply to them and don't tend to realize how much time has passed in some cases. I'm trying to get better about refreshing the pages. This thread tends to move fast sometimes....

@HobbitGamer NOW what have you done?

@Morpheel Question: would you prefer/like to play Farming Simulator 17 with a controller?
If so, then look no further than the absolutely brilliant Xpadder, a small, configurable and highly user-friendly program that allows you to assign keyboard keys to a joypad, or to simply make custom key-mappings for games that don't support or allow it. As a user myself, I can highly recommend it to any PC gamer that doesn't like keyboard and/or mouse controls.

You can find it here: http://www.download82.com/get/download/windows/xpadder/
It's Shareware, but a license is added with the download, so you can immediately register to get the full version. Although the free version works just fine as well.

Xpadder supports Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 controllers by default, and you can download templates (called "controller images") for other controllers as well:
https://xpadder.com/forum4/viewforum.php?f=144

And here, you can find pre-designed game profiles for dozens of games:
https://xpadder.com/forum4/viewforum.php?f=9
These are mostly for very popular games, but I've personally found it a lot quicker to just use one of these, rename it to assign it to whatever game I want to use it for, and then change any buttons if needed.

Here's a tutorial video that explains the initial setup:

Well I mean, it's supposed to be fully compatible by default. But for some reason my SN30pro doesn't really register once in gameplay?

It does awknoledge there's a controller. It just insists on using the keyboard and mouse layout when I try to use this particular one.

I think I'll just start using my extra xbox one controller as a dedicated pc controller instead... Once I get back home.

@Morpheel That's also what this program is good for: it basically forces any and all programs to use the key-mapping that you've made with it, regardless of the fact that the program doesn't support controllers, or doesn't support specific controllers, so you could basically even control Windows with it, although that would be pretty awkward...

@NintendoByNature - Hilarious. We just got back home from an out of town Memorial Day party (where it rained the entire time), and it appears it just got done raining here. We even have a tornado warning until 10:00. It’s supposed to rain all week. It’ll probably be June before I grill, which is sad. I use lump hardwood, so I need an extra 30 minutes, compared to gas, to get a good bed of coals to cook. That has kept me from slipping in a quick grill session between storms.

Guinness is a great beer for boiling brats. It gets them kind of sticky and caramelized. I don’t like cooking raw bratwurst on the grill. The casing burns before the meat fully cooks. A beer boil first is the only way in my book. Then you just put a char on them and look like a hero when you end up with a plate of perfectly cooked bratwurst.

@HobbitGamer - I see what you did. I actually knew where to look before I found your post because I held back earlier today. Hilarious. Your last line is a really strong finish. Now go troll somewhere else you obviously trolling troll.

Hey guys I just had a thought (weird for me, I know). If Mario Maker 2 doesn't support Amiibo, like some people suspect, do you think that might signal Nintendo's intent to let the Amiibo line fade?

I've felt for a while now that they and their partners have been reluctant to have Amiibo functionality in games. With, when it is there at all, it feels like something of an afterthought or a tack on at the last minute.

I am still bummed we never got something like Mii-Plaza for Amiibo. I like Amiibo, I have a ton of them and am content collecting, but it is always cool when I can do something more with my collectibles.

I am also still shocked that Pokemon never did Pokemon Amiibo cards of any sort. I mean, Animal Crossing did, so why not Pokemon? I suspect it is because of how they got burned on the e-reader for GBA back in the day.

@bimmy-lee yea it got pretty rough out here. Tornado warnings and touch downs about 10 miles West of me. Today i had to improvise. Pan fry the brats ( yea i had brats two days in a row 😁) in tecate..hahaha of all beers. It was an odd pairing but did the job nonetheless. After they were pan fried I actually broiled them for 5 minutes to get that char look. Still pretty decent. For The burgers, wrapped them in foil and baked them. Ended up being pretty juicy. Hope you had a nice time at your party and enjoyed some good grub!

@bimmy-lee Teehee
Sucks ya couldn’t grill. Half my kebabs turned out great, the other batch cooked 3/4 when I ran out of propane. I’ll toss them in the skillet with some rice tomorrow.

@Heavyarms55 I’d enjoy something like the amiibo puzzle game that was on WiiU/DS. (btw, folks were saying to contact Nintendo because that’s generally a specific user’s response.)
