My son is looking to buy a new gaming system. For reasons I have detailed elsewhere on Daniweb, there is no way in hell we will consider a Dell system. They were great once. They aren't anymore. And their service sucks big time. We would prefer a prebuilt system because 1. it (theoretically) should have been designed so that all the components work well together. 1. it will come with all the required drivers (customized as needed) 1. all the pieces will be under one warranty at one place It will have to be a Windows system because I only …

I recently purchased a new Vizio 55" LED 1080p tv but I'm having trouble connection my Nintendo 64 to it. The red & white audio cable are working fine and I'm getting all of the audio but there is not yellow port on my new tv for the N64's yellow wire. The tv does have a green and blue port and when I connect the N64's yellow wire into the tv's green port the images shows up but it's black and white and scrolling upward. On my last tv this red, white, & yellow N64 wires into red, white, green …

My number two son is looking to replace his old(ish) Alienware laptop with a new gaming desktop. He is leaning toward another Alienware (although desktop this time rather than notebook). Does anyone have any recommendations that aren't in the super-ultimate-deluxe-megabucks category? His reason for going to a desktop system is for the ability to replace components as they become obsolete (primarily video cards). Some newer games will not run on the older video hardware on the noteboook.

Hello Everyone, So I've begun a new project, in an attempt to show off my progress with Javascript. I'm making a little text-based RPG. However, I would like for it to permanently save your character and their progress. Thus, I need a MySQL database. I won't lie, I've only used MySQL very sparingly in the past and I am very much a beginner. Thus, I'm still struggling whats the best way to even format the database and tables. Here's my idea, 3 tables: **Users:** userid **Item Description:** | Name | Type | Attack | itemid **Player Inventory:** | itemid | …

2014 was not a good year for Microsoft, with the Xbox Live network being disrupted at both ends of December by [Lizard Squad DDoS attacks](https://www.daniweb.com/software-development/game-development/news/488412/lizard-squad-claims-responsibility-for-taking-down-xbox-live-today) and then as the year was finally coming to an end a different hacking collective dropped another bomb onto Xbox. A posting on Twitter simply stated "Hey, @Xbox! We thought we'd drop on by and End 2014 with a bang ;)" along with a link to a file on Kim Dotcom's Mega cloud storage service. That file, freely available for download by anyone, was the official Xbox One Software Development Kit. ![dweb-xboxone.jpg](/attachments/large/0/c74c87eb29bf89b2cc9ce2f0855f42fe.jpg "align-center") Interestingly, the …

As a gamer myself, I thought that last year was a pretty good one. After all, not only did I get to play both GTA V and Call of Duty: Ghosts (indeed, I'm still playing it and working my may through the prestige levels) but if I had enough spare cash and will I could have bought an Xbox One or PlayStation 4. As it happens, I did buy a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P which can manage a pretty respectable average of 40fps in Crysis on the high quality settings at native resolution. However, according to research figures from Kaspersky Lab, …

Hi, I am planning to build a budget gaming PC with the price limit of roughly £400. I have found a group of components that add up to make roughly £350 and I was wondering whether these components are worth there money, if it will be good enough to play games well on medium graphic settings and what needs upgrading for future proofing. The aim is to build a cheap PC and as o gain more money I can buy better components as the next gen comes out. Here are the components minus the PSU: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/western-digital-internal-hard-drive-wd10ezrx http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/patriot-memory-psd34g13332s http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-motherboard-f2a85vpro http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-ad641xwngxbox http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx650e2gd5

First there was a year of hype surrounding Project Natal, but the reality that is Microsoft Kinect has been in my family home for a week now. Everyone from my 10 year old daughter to my retired mother-in-law have played with it, so what's the verdict? Is this the future of motion control gaming or just a flawed imitation of the Nintendo Wii? [attach]18053[/attach]Let's start at the beginning with what Kinect is not: it's most certainly not a Wii, nor a PlayStation Move for that matter, as it takes a quite different and truly unique approach to the whole motion …

A couple of years ago, a 17 year old was arrested for his part in a denial of service attack against gamers playing the online multiplayer version of Call of Duty: Black Ops. The teenager was accused of selling cheat software called 'Phenom Booter' which prevented others from playing (it's a shell booter) while at the same time enabling the player to boost their scores. As someone who is a bit of a Black Ops obsessive (currently fast approaching 9th Prestige level on Black Ops 2) any kind of cheating really gets my goat. But one that involves preventing me, …

Hey! I am making a new gaming computer (http://pcpartpicker.com/p/QLYy) and I have heard that nVidia is much better. I'm not going to use more than one monitor, and if I do, it'll only be two so the lower memory is too important. Which nVidia card should I get that's around the price range of my current video card (Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card, ~$390) that's the same or better? Thanks!

Some might argue that there are already quite enough different versions of Angry Birds to last a lifetime, or at least a lifetime of minutes to waste on a mobile gaming platform such as a smartphone or tablet. There is some merit to this, and personally I would be quite happy if Rovio just kept adding new levels and new birds with new attack capabilities to the original game. I wouldn't even mind if they charged me a small fee for these new additions by way of in-game purchases, as the game would still represent excellent value for money. We …
