[edit] Photoshop

I was asking some people about Photoshop tips, and they recommended I ask you. Would you be willing to teach me a few things? Ciel 06:46, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Mostly I'm just a hack, but sure, ask away. —Jette User Jette awesome.png 11:30, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Right now, I'm trying to work on making a part of an image slowly fade into a second image. I know I'll need the fading image to be in the top layer, and the emerging image to be in the bottom layer. But what tool or effect will give me that effect? Ciel 06:43, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Animations aren't my specialty, and by that I mean "I've never worked with them." Sorry.  :/ —Jette User Jette awesome.png 07:19, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
No worries, thanks for hearing me out at least. Maybe I'll be fortunate enough to bug you about something else later on? Ciel 08:02, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Sure, go ahead. If anything, though, I'd say set the opacity to change over time. I use CS4, where the layers menu defaults to the lower-right corner. Click the layer you want to disappear, then click on the word opacity, hold down the mouse and drag to the left. It'll go from 100% to 0% pretty quickly. That's basically what you want it to do... as for how to get that done over time, I have no idea.  :p Closest thing to animations I've worked with is PowerPoint, and I haven't touched that stuff since... probably 4th grade (this is assuming PP existed when I was 4th grade, which it may well not have -- in that case it was probably similar software). —Jette User Jette awesome.png 08:24, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
Having experience with absolutely none of this (I made picture animations the old fashioned way, by shoving a bunch of gifs together and giving them condoms, and that was a while ago - though I did make an animated video at one point!), I figured I'd give my two cents. If you're working with an animation, there's probably a timeline. In the old software I worked with, we would tell the machine "I want you to do this" (which, in this case, is "I want you to reduce opacity/alpha from 100% to 0%"), and then would click start and end points on the timeline. (Tons of fun when we were still learning the thing and didn't realize right click was remove, not double click and hope for the best.) -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 14:20, 16 September 2009 (UTC)
If you are making a short movie or a video clip of some sort, the easiest way would be to use Imovie or moviemaker. You want gif image, I really can't help. -- NUKLEAR User NuclearVII signature 3.jpgIIV 14:26, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

Armond brings up a good point, but the easiest way to do it is to use the Animation maker in Photoshop, assuming you're using a legitimate version of CS3 or CS4. (It should be located under Tools, if I'm remembering right.) It should be able to automatically create multiple layers which you can use to create an animated GIF file when you go to save it. This post on also details an easy way to create them. ··· Danny Pew Pew 18:59, 16 September 2009 (UTC)

I have one, but I'm pretty sure it's also a virus, judging from how I get a porno ad every time I click Layers. Seriously though, I have a working copy of CS4 with every single feature. The download size is ~50MB, it uses less RAM, has none of the crappy bloatware, supports everything, and uninstalls cleanly. It's reverse engineered or something, with Adobe's shit all stripped down.

LOL Bridge having no purpose. Camera RAW says hi. It's also properly color managed, has image automation, stacking, tagging, elements can be moved around easier, expandable with JavaScript.
I just have the entire Suite. Bridge is nice when you're moving between multiple applications a lot like I do. You can choose what to install and what not to install, though. If you hit me up on MSN, I'll gladly just send you my version. ··· Danny Pew Pew 19:35, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

I'm glad you took it in the spirit it was intended. I DO think you are a valuable contributor to GWW.

Okay, thanks. I didn't expect to win, tbh, I was just curious about the impression I'd been making on people; I've been trying to be less trolly and more wikidragony. Don't tell the voters that though. (Obviously I would've done my job if I'd gotten elected though.) —Jette User Jette awesome.png 07:04, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
Well, if you were to tone down some of your interactions with users, I would rethink my position on a future RfA. I think though, adding the admin role to your activities here would quickly make the wiki a lot less fun for you than it is now, I know it has for me. -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 07:29, 19 September 2009 (UTC)
I can try to be nicer. I don't really need administrative powers, there's just a lot of times where I think "stupid vandal" and want to ban it with an inflammatory message, but the noticeboard is fine for that, I guess. And you're right, Auron has been controversial (though I would like to point out that the majority of people against him were trolls, butthurt and/or overreacting, but very funny to watch), so I'd probably make it worse.

What bit version was your XP, and what Vista version are you operating on?

I was using 32-bit XP, and I'm using 32-bit Windows 7 atm. I'll be upgrading to 64-bit in a few hours or so, because i herd it was pro or something. —Jette User Jette awesome.png 18:42, 21 September 2009 (UTC)
Well, I wouldn't be surprised if MS modified some of the graphics drivers interactions (re: semi-transparent windows).

I'm using one of the so-called loader programs for now, but Microsoft nerfed it when they made one for Vista, so I figure they can do it to this one too.

I could also get a hooker for $30, which might be money better spent. In the same vein, is C# a good language for beginners?

A) Get Context. It's a text editor with syntax highlighting for a million languages. B) Python is stupid easy to work with, Java is good fun and a heavy duty language, and C# makes me want to kill myself because of how retarded its UI management is. If you really feel like beating yourself to death with your keyboard in the near future, I'd suggest C++ - it's highly extensible and will introduce you to a world of shit you never wanted to know when you get into header files. If you'd prefer to stay sane and keep to the C family, try C. ··· Danny Pew Pew 21:06, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
I used Notepad++ as is, but I could try Context. Also, C++ is bad and users of it should feel bad, for reasons verbosely outlined here. I could try Python or Java, I suppose, I've just liked some of the descriptions I've gotten of C♭ and original C, the only reason I don't go with C is because of those people who keep telling me I can fry my computer using it incorrectly, which would be bad, because I spent my last $30 on a hooker. —Jette User Jette awesome.png 21:16, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

I was going for "somewhat easy to learn and teaches you the basics." C is perfect for this, except it melts your fucking brain if you haven't tried to learn something beforehand, though it has the upside of making every other language effortless after you're through. If I have to I'll just go with it and look into Ruby, Python and C^ afterwards, assuming I haven't just said fuck it. I'm looking at this as a hobby more than a job, except I try not to do anything half-assed, which is why I'm using photoshop and MSOffice instead of that gimp and openoffice crap (oOo's spreadsheet program gives me the hives). —Jette User Jette awesome.png 22:37, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Ruby and Python are both very easy to learn, but for very different reasons. But, to be honest, if you're being seriously serious about this, go with Python first (if only for a little bit), because Ruby's way of doing things (everything is an object, methods do everything you could ever want, etc) is very different from i.e. C, Java, Python, *. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 22:43, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

Depends on how lazy you are. AutoHotkey can do amazing things with a little effort, but you'd need people to download it and drop it in their Startup folder. C is probably your best option, but anything that can interface with .NET easily will work.

[edit] What

you should do, is have a monocle on the right eye, an eyepatch on the left eye and a vicious scar that comes out from off the eyepatch. Then you do some pro wikicoding that causes the top hat to float over the text it would otherwise linebreak. ---Chaos- (talk) -- 13:15, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

You can do the hat thing really easily with a <div> using the position properties. The hardest part would be working out how many pixels to offset it by. But if it will obscure text above your comments then blah blah blah policy. Also blah blah blah good html etiquette. blaaaaah blaaaaaah blaaaaah. Mr J 14:04, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
I think it wouldn't go over text, there are still small spaces in between the lines there etc. ---Chaos- (talk) -- 14:09, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
It depends how tall the hat graphic is and what height offset you apply to it. Here's a snippet if you want to fiddle around with it. You'll need to look up the syntax for the position property and change it from absolute to relative(or whatever). <div style="position:absolute; z-index:0; left:12px; top:4px; border: 0px;"></div> Mr J 14:19, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
I could just give it a hover attribute to make it transparent, but actually getting the thing to be in the right position every time I signed would be difficult at best, especially given my knowledge of HTML/wikimarkup/CSS/javascript is severely lacking. —Jette User Jette sophisticated.png 14:42, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
It's been a while since I tried it but if you put your sig within a div then that should make it linebreak as a single entity. If you then put the hat inside a div then you can apply the offset to that part of the div alone. Example pseudocode: <div>Jette<div style="position:relative; up offset thingie; left offset thingie;>hat.png</div>face.png</div> ~~~~~ The outer div tags should keep it all together, the inner div tag should shunt the hat pic up and over the face pic. iirc it still leaves a blank space where the hat should be, so you might want to put the hat after the face and use a negative(or positive?) offset. Mr J 14:55, 8 October 2009 (UTC)
Actually... I think if you put it inside a transparent div you can keep the bottom of the div aligned with the text but, since it's essentially floating over the text, it would layer over the line spacing without increasing the size of the line spacing. Mr J 15:10, 8 October 2009 (UTC)

Aye, it goes over the text. The top hat would have to lean sideways to not go over the text. Taking a screenshot of regular text then drawing the hat to fit in between or something could be a viable idea. ---Chaos- (talk) -- 10:10, 9 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Learning programman

How does one do it? NuVII User NuclearVII signature 3.jpg 19:27, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

1) Get Notepad++, it's like Notepad took a lunch break one day, crept into a bathroom stall and snorted about fifty kilograms of crack cocaine before injecting a bucket of epinephrine through its nutsack, then came back out and beat the everloving shit out of every IDE ever made and tossed them, broken and bleeding, into a dumpster behind a whorehouse in Russia.
2) Learn C or Java, they're supposed to be good for beginners or something, though for different reasons. C is "the" programming language, and virtually every object-oriented PL made after it has been influenced by it in some way or another, as well as being very low-level, while Java is pretty simple to learn and gets your introduced rather easily. I've heard talk that Microsoft's C# is like an updated Java, but considering how well everything else by M$ is done, I'll believe it when I see it (although C# is such a cool name). Take some tutorials online (if you go with C, make sure it's C, not C++; the two flavors go well together but learning C++ first is like taking a high school English course before you know how to spell). After that, you should have an idea of how shit works and can get started learning more advanced stuff. For "real" projects, you might want an IDE like Eclipse or (if you enjoy the taste of Microsoft's salty semen) some variation of Visual Studio. Really though, get Eclipse or something. Notepad (not N++, just notepad) is better than most stuff by Microsoft because where 19px is like 150MB, Visual Studio makes you download 3GB of bloated crap you'll never use, installs 17 entries in the add/remove programs list and then tells you you don't have any libraries or dependencies when it comes time to compile even the absolute simplest of programs. Oh, you might want to talk to Armond or Shard or Danny or somebody about this, they know more than I do. All I can do is create a recursive function attempting to calculate your mother's mass, but it causes a stack overflow. When you're ready to be ULTIMATE HARDCORE, install AT&T UNIX. –Jette User Jette awesome.png 19:50, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

I'd recommend starting with java, because it's much easier to learn when you don't have to worry about pointers and linking and preprocessors and memory allocation and all that other nice stuff C has. Java is much more idiot-proof (no offense), which is why they teach it first in schools now. It's really, really hard to mess up with java.

The great thing about being a programmer is that your boss has no idea of how anything works, which means he basically has to go on what you tell him. If you say he can't turn his screen sideways for a portrait view to read long messages because it needs special, expensive proprietary drivers to keep the pixels from falling out, he can't prove you wrong. Or, more relevantly, if you say a gremlin has gotten into the server and you have to work twice as hard because of it, he can't really know whether or not it's crap. –Jette User Jette awesome.png 21:09, 26 October 2009 (UTC)

is it an easier install than drupal? i'm currently using drupal for more-or-less the same purpose. ··· Danny Pew Pew 21:50, 16 October 2009 (UTC)

Seriously though, just use WikiPad or similar software. Unless you absolutely cannot be bothered with a flash drive and need access to it anywhere, there's no point to it. With that said, I have not tried drupal and would not know, but I can't imagine MW would be any better or worse. I feel I should point out, however, I installed it through CygWin, not the normal Windows, so I'm not sure if it'd work on a normal version of Windows. I don't even know what I'm running anymore. I have FreeBSD on one drive, Windows 7 on another and Debian on another. The worst part of it is, I've set up a virtual machine so that I can use any of them whenever I need to -- and then I go to the trouble of using things like CygWin, Wine and everything else. Computers are stupid. –Jette User Jette awesome.png 22:52, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
Why so seriously complicated? NuVII User NuclearVII signature 3.jpg 10:13, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
Because "end-user friendly" and "clueless operator friendly" are two totally different things. If you don't know what PHP, Apache and MySQL are and have a relatively decent idea of how to use them already, then you'll be in for a rough trip. It's cool though, about an hour and a half of googling (less, tbh, but it took me forever to figure out how to emulate a USB stick) will get it done. –Jette User Jette awesome.png 20:54, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Theoretically speaking

What would happen if I tried to brute-force my way into my skype account? And which program or tool would be most suitable (completely hypothetically) for this task? NuVII User NuclearVII signature 3.jpg 17:42, 17 October 2009 (UTC)

Well, theoretically speaking, you would be caught within minutes. The FBI, CIA, KGB, SSi and RPG would be on your doorstep with a waterboarding warrant and a bucket of flashbang & smoke grenades. Hypothetically, the chase could take weeks. More likely, you would just a virus running one. I'm not familiar with Skype (I hate phone calls as it is, making them over the computer is just counterproductive), but if it requires a password, in this day & age it will have an anti-cracking measure, which always means a way to prevent brute force. In any event, almost if not all "password crackers" are malware of some kind or another, designed for "1337 h4ckers" to download and run without antivirus protection because they're running Common Sense 2010 or some other bullshit. You could write one yourself/ask a friend to do it, but you'd be better off asking Skype for it back. –Jette User Jette awesome.png 20:48, 17 October 2009 (UTC)
Don't listen to Jette. He is dumb. Brute forcing your way into your own account is in no way illegal, and provided there aren't things set up to prevent brute-forcing, it is completely possible. Your best chances are going to be AutoHotkey or Python, depending on your programming experience. I've personally brute-forced my own Guild Wars account just to see if it was possible. (Mind you, it took almost a straight week.) If you don't use pseudorandom passwords, you could use a dictionary attack that would take less than half the time, especially if you have some ideas of what it could be. ··· Danny Pew Pew 20:27, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Danny, how exactly would he prove that he was brute forcing his own account instead of some random's without the password handy? -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 22:57, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
An email response from the account email and/or the original access keys? ··· Danny Pew Pew 23:03, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Danny, but I figured it out. Also, doesn't GW use a delay system to prevent brute-forcing? NuVII User NuclearVII signature 3.jpg 18:23, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Not as far as I've experienced. You can enter bad passwords at a rate of about 1 every other second and I didn't notice any reduction in speed. ··· Danny Pew Pew 18:36, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
Final question: Did you use a program to do that? Or does one have to know some programming? NuVII User NuclearVII signature 3.jpg 18:41, 23 October 2009 (UTC)
I wrote my own script using AutoHotkey. I would strongly suggest programming one yourself since any cracking programs you find online are generally pretty shady. ··· Danny Pew Pew 18:42, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] sig

For *whatever* reason, the hat breaks spacing when it's at a different indentation than the text above it. It's not a huge amount, and I don't know if anyone cares (it's better than the sigs at bulbapedia, at any rate), but I thought I'd let you know. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 23:02, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Texmod Question

Is it possible to take the texture of this, and put it on one of these? If so, how does I go about doing it? ¤Dark ';~;' Chaos¤ 23:54, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

Choose the skin you want (you will need to have the shield yourself or easily accessible [friend/NPC]) and start the texmod.exe modding GW.exe in log mode. Then you skip through the textures until the skin of the shield you want to use is selected. Save it. Then skim for the shield you want to graft this on and save the selected texture. Now, close GW and go to your output folder (beforehand determined), cut the name of the carrier shield and re-name the dream skin shield with this cut name. Start texmod in package build mode and create a new "mod". Finally, start texmod normally, i.e. package load; there you go. Ɲoɕʈɋɽɕɧ 00:11, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
So, i save both textures, swich the chaos axe's texture name with the sheild's (i want to mod) texture name, but how do i make the textmod? ¤Dark ';~;' Chaos¤ 00:42, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Package Build -> Definition File (select the automatically generated log file in the output folder) -> Build Ɲoɕʈɋɽɕɧ 00:53, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
Note that the texture may not wrap around the new skin as neatly as it did the old. If you want to be absolutely sure it's right, you should modify the original skin with the new skin as a reference. -- Armond WarbladeUser Armond sig image.png{{Bacon}} 02:10, 20 October 2009 (UTC)
