    One-shot kill for all enemies, whilst those related to the protagonist maintain top stamina even after getting shot a couple of times.


    The most prominent example that I can think of is every American military movie ever, especially of the likes of the Lone Survivor and American Sniper. In American Sniper, there was this one scene though where thank god a friendly face dies after being headshot by some Taliban, and that point was literally the first time a US soldier got killed in one hit in that movie, whilst the protagonist could still one-hit-kill everything with some standard issue .48 caliber rifle. And don't even get me cocked up about Lone Survivor: one of the protagonists survived a headshot even though enemy forces would still die on the spot after being hit at their guts. But I guess that God blessed America, and nobody else in those movies.

    -What's green and waves you hello as you pass by?

    -I dunno.

    -The pavement.

    -Is the pavement green?

    -Why, does it wave hello to you?


    Go figure.

    posted a message on PC keeps getting blue and red screens of death

    So, I've been having this problem ever since I put together this build but I hadn't addressed it anywhere yet in an endeavour to find out what exactly is going on. I've tried searching on the web for a solution but I couldn't find anything specific that could really help me.


    For the sake of addressing purposes I'm going to post my full system build.

    CPU: Intel Core i5-6600k

    RAM: Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 2400Mhz 8Gb

    GPU: MSI Radeon R9 380 2Gb factory overclocked

    M/B: ASRock H170 Pro4

    Kingston SSDNow V300 SSD 120Gb + Seagate Barracuda HDD 1Tb

    Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo

    OS: Windows 10


    RSoD's do ALWAYS occur whenever I'm in a gaming session for over ten minutes. Apparently, I don't get this problem when playing Minecraft at all, but I keep getting it with games like Metro Last Light, Wildstar, etc.


    My personal theory regarding the RSoD's is that the GPU might require more power than the amount that my PSU is capable of providing. However, I highly doupt this possibility since 550 watts is what people seem to recommend around the web for a single R9 380 GPU. Ever since I first installed the GPU I had problems installing the drivers provided in the DVD that came within the box (couldn't install the AMD Gaming Evolved App) but after I uninstalled those drivers and downloaded the new Crimson software, everything installed correctly.


    Apart from the RSoD's that are by far the biggest nuisance of all since they don't allow me to run any game at all, the system does also crash quite often with regular BSoD's, usually displaying to me one the following messages:

    MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

    IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

    PAGE_ERROR_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA

    KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE

    SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED (dxgmms2.sys)


    Whenever I get the 'kernel security check failure' crash reason, Windows runs a disk check during the next startup but never finds anything. I've also been getting a couple of other reasons that I cannot quite recall right now to post here. I will update the thread with any new crashes. Whenever I get the 'system exception not handled' reason, Windows will go on a repair-reboot circle that lasts for about 2 seconds per reboot and forces my system to reboot 6-7 times before starting up regularly again.


    I've tried to run a repair through the Windows DVD but I would always get a message according to which Windows couldn't run repairs due to a missing file in the system.


    I haven't ran a proper temperature or voltage check, etc, yet, but my bare hands suggest that the temperatures inside my build couldn't possibly reach more than 60-65 degrees in a 15 degree environment. I can't stress test that under a game load because, you know, the system crashes soon after I launch the game.


    If you have any ideas and suggestions about my issue please post them.

    Hey! I'm Rainbow_Girl, and you've probably seen me around. I've been here for a few months, but haven't bothered to post here until now. I'm 10 (almost 11) and in fifth grade. I love reading, writing, video games, and drama. I can be found in the roleplaying section most commonly, but I'm also around here in general OT, and I'm also in General Discussion. Been playing Minecraft since Feb 2014 and I have no intention of stopping. Unfortunately, I think school has other ideas. Speaking of school, my favorite subject is math. Weird, huh? Well, I'm a weird person. ^_^ One last thing about me is that I actually use this forum on my iPad, instead of a computer. Keep calm and rainbow on!


    I offer you congratulations for the tremendous success of your very first roleplay, 'Radiance'. Keep up the good work!

    posted a message on A Hypothetical Moral Senario

    I'd choose to help the young man. I really can't understand why people can't help other people just because they don't know them. I might not know him personally, but I do know that there are others who are in desperate need of him. Saving him would save many more lives, so I'd definetely choose to save that man.

    posted a message on Can someone give me tips so I can obtain Abs?

    Like DaBomb mentioned, it's just a matter of getting rid of that layer of fat.


    On my level of knowledge, might I recommend you to drink a lot of water. I can't stress the importance of drinking water enough to accumulate the desired results. Water is the air of your stomach, it is required in order for most decomposing functions to be performed. Just don't mix match water with food, because water does only become effective once it blends with your stomach fluids. Fat is by definition a hydrophobic molecule, which means that plain water can't touch it.


    Other than that, if you are leading an unhealthy eating habit (for which I don't put the blame on neither you nor your parents), you can always try preparing some "potions" of your own that can help you with that struggle. Every food that contains acids is actually a good remedy against fat. Try putting more lemon into your food. You can also drink a glass of warm water mixed with the juice of one or two lemons every morning. Make some ginger beer, which is both refreshing and nutritious. If you have the appropriate kitchenware in your house, blend and mix low-fat milk with bananas, honey and cinnamon for a delicious and energizing smoothie with low fatty acid percentage.


    Then, of course, there are the general guidelines that don't require anything special to follow. Try drinking two glasses of water everyday BEFORE breakfast. Do NEVER skip breakfast. Drink at least 2 litres of litres per day. This might sound kinda outlandish at first, but trust me, if you start moving around your place with a glass full of water always in hand, you're gonna get used to it and you will eventually consume even a larger quantity without even noticing it. Don't drink water whilst eating lunch, keep your glass aside and chug it down once your meal is over. If said meal is comprised of meat sided with carb bombs like chips, pasta, rice or bread, make sure to hit the mill three hours after you've finished eating and spend a couple of hours running.


    If you do plan to take up some kind of fat-burning activity, may I suggest you swimming. Out of personal experience, joining a swimming sports team and following their practice scedule is the best way to accumulate the body of your dreams. You won't believe just how many calories swimmers burn. It's also one of the few activities that naturally develops the muscle mass of your backs and your shoulderblades, groups that are difficult to exercise in, say, a gym class.


    Well, I think that's all that I can think of.
