If you want to make your own: place gates, dhds, rings, etc. in a map and then type "stargate_creategatespawner_file" in the console. This generates a mapname.txt in \garrysmod\data\ directory. Rename it to mapname.ini and you have your gatespawner file.
If you are not busy ,not working on the map and have time could you make a short video 1-2 mins on destiny?
I'm so royally pissed of right now.
Some of you stalking me on Steam might have noticed that I was working in the Source SDK/on the map again.
Today my external HDD said FUCK YOU and refuses to work ever since. The map itself is safe on my internal HDDs, but several GBs of reference images and all the episodes are gone for good. Not to mention the other things: 10 years of music, my itunes purchases, personal stuff, etc.
The REALLY bitter part of the story? Just two hours before the catastrophe, I ordered a new 2 TB Raid 1 storage solution.... You know? "Just in case the merely 18 months old HDD might fail me in the foreseeable future."
That sucks man :/ I wish you the best.
you got to be kidding, it sucks
oh well I think all should be fine, good luck
You got really bad luck :( I would also be pissed, if I would lost my photos and music. I've got 5yo pc and everything is still working fine...
Thankfully I sync all of my important stuff with my home web/gameserver.
tikay - i sent you a pm about how to fix your external HDD, i hope it works with your case... Good luck!
In sweden we have these companies that open the HDD and copy the files manually to another disk. Try to find one, tikay! The only con is that they cost a lot. But it's worth it in your case I think.
But you can find a program eg. HDD regenerator, whitch in 60% of damaged HDDs cases it's works. It costs aproximately 60$, you can find one for BitTorrent whitch is cracked. So 0$ to fix a HDD :). But dije's ideea is good too. Good luck again tikay!
Nope. It's no simple thing like bad sectors. The HDD doesn't even start. It's simply dead. Either the electronic circuit or the spindle motor are broken.
Of course I already searched for recovery specialists and called one of the cheapest I could find. A technician told me that in the simplest case (dead electronics), they start at 200€. Broken mechanical parts, like spindle, actuator, read/write-head, etc. need a clean room and more work, resulting in up to 800€. This doesn't even include data recovery in case the filesystem got somehow corrupted.
It's sad, but I'm not willing to spend that much money for it. I'll just store the drive away and hope the services get cheaper in the next few years.
Also, I found an old backup of my music from 2009 on another drive. So not all is lost...
My suggestion is to try to buy same HDD (or atleast same brand - should have same pinout). Then simply swap electronic. It can help, it can broke electronic. But maybe worth of try.
had this same problem, but it can be salvaged!
take the disk out and mount it into a old computer, copy and done!
or attach a new cable to it incase the power supply from the cable was at fault (it happens)
How often do I have to repeat it? THE HDD ITSELF IS DEAD, NOT THE EXTERNAL CASE.
Hope is done soon im a huge fan of the stargate series. But im not trying to rush you.
It can't be that bad, unless you live in a sandstorm, of course.
ITT: People who don't know anything about HDDs trying to solve problems with HDDs?
In this case, I'd need to buy a multimeter and learn how to use it.
It's not going to help tikay if he never played with electronic. It's the best just to give it to some friend/company that knows what he/they are doing, so less possibility for data lost.
ughh i hate the reliability on hdd drives i swear they fail more often now then they did way back when..
if i could afford it i would get those ssd drives.... btw thanks tipkay for letting me borrow an image or two for my tag in cap ;_)
I've been using computers for about 8 years or so, and I didn't see an hdd fail so far.
I would say 2 locations to store - online and external hdd so you'll always got 2 locations you can get your files from.
Oh i get it Hard Drive Disk
A 1 or 2 TB SSD would be sweet, but is simply not affordable. I have a 120GB SDD for Windows and apps, though.
And again, a PCB change might work, or might not, as the platters may be tuned to the chips on newer drives.
You know what? Let's just drop the topic.
Oh wow a whole week and nobody wrote anything
Silence is gold.
Is this map going to be released or has it been scrapped?
