  1. If there's a bizarre thing that can happen, it happens to me! 🥴 All the files were present but my AAF_Violate.ini only had a few settings in it. (Old file from a previous install maybe?) I managed to solve the problem by copying the contents of settings.ini in the Config folder, to a new AAF_Violate.ini and placed that directly in the FO4 MCM Settings folder. (Not the MO2 virtual folder.) Surrender now works as well as everything else. I figure whatever is causing the weirdness in MO2 for me is also preventing MCM mods from handling their settings unless the .ini's are inside the FO4 folder directly. And yes, I think that's nuts myself. The current guess is that a recent update to Visual Code Studio (which I use) has caused something to be wonky in MO2. Regardless, VCS is more important to me than MO2 so MO2 needs to deal with it. 🤣 Thanks again!! 😀
  2. OK, I've got an odd problem. (What other sorts do I ever have? 🤣) I'm certain it's on my end and not yours however. (Entering the Twilight Zone here 🥴😞
  3. Oh yes, when the rumored Portraits 2.0 hits, this will get updated as well. This is actually safe to use in both the current and soon to be released EoS versions. Just ignore the warning.
  4. It just struck me as very very weird. Most of the mages tend to be rather dismissive of swordplay in the show. Even to that one mage that learned how to fight. (Watched it twice and I still don't know his name!) And here she is picking up a... common sword? Like some ... dirty non-magical commoner!? 😀 I'd have expected her to turn up her nose at such a vulgar idea. And then mind control whomever was dumb enough to suggest it. 🤣 Earlier in the show she had a mind control thing going on for a whole town! (That was also rather silly but I digress.) So, she's got super magic mind control, she can time stop people with little to no effort and she can even burn up a whole army if she's annoyed enough. I can buy all of those things. But it falls apart when she's weirdly doing the Witcher/Matrix fight stuff without using magic. How? Why? If she magicked herself into a fantastic warrior why not just fry them all and be done with it? Of course right after that episode she goes back to being Ms. Sorceress Superpower. Again fine, but that whole sword scene was just dumb.
  5. You forgot the mid-fight kiss!? 🤣 That episode only got worse on the second viewing. I can understand tuning out at that point. 😀
  6. Actually, while I'm here I might as well announce: Yep, it's dead. 🤣 There is a small chance it needs updating to the latest TTW, assuming there were any new versions since the one this was based on. Voice -should- be working unless they've done something weird. But most of the voice is self contained anyway and not dependent on TTW. (I mean really, the voice files are right in the download. You can even listen to them! 🤦‍♀️) With needing (kind of) to update to a stripped down Win10 at some point this year (because no way in hell will I move to full Win10Bugathon), that will officially end any chance of me ever returning. Of course anyone is free to pick up where I left off and wrap it up. It is a bit of a shame she was soooo close to being done. But that's how it is sometimes.
  7. Well yes it was. But then again as the author isn't modding FONV anymore.... I guess it's not really important is it? 🤣
  8. I thought it was particularly weird given she just time stopped a bunch of dwarves with a flick of the wrist just before the fight. I was fully expecting Geralt to get ready to kill stuff and then she goes and magics them all. That would have been funny and less work for the show even. But nooo... suddenly Yen is a warrioress and we get a cringy mid swing kiss. 🤦‍♀️ (And naturally a scene later she's mad at him. 🤣 ) Really that whole episode was bad. It stands out as the worst to me. There are issues in other episodes but never were so many concentrated into one spot. I wonder if the writer on that one was different?
  9. I watched the whole thing twice. Can't help but compare to the game on some level. Game: everyone is gorgeous except Geralt. Show: everyone is ugly but Geralt. 🤣 🤣 OK OK, it's not quite like that. 🤣 My (mostly negative) impressions (beware ye who enter ) With that out of the way, I managed to get through the whole thing. Twice. (Meaning it's not terrible. 🤣) It kept me interested the whole time. Even on the chicken dragon episode I was interested (quite liked the gold chicken dragon actor in fact). Acting, with only a few exceptions, ranged from passable to great. (A huge feat these days!) Overall reaction: Great! Provided: you can handle sometimes asinine casting, some cringe here and there, and the odd FX mega-fail. What the show really did for me was just encourage another run through Witcher 3. Apparently I'm not alone there given the surge in players. 😀
  10. Had me at "glows in the dark". 🤣
  11. Wait, how did you get the Realslave mods to work? Those have been dead since..... apparently 2.2. Unless...... Maybe they still work because they just overwrite the clothes on the current version to their 2.1 version? 🤣 I bet that's what happens! Well that's a solution I didn't consider!! 🤣 As for these, you'll know it works if the Sidh are a bit breezy. It's a simple texture replacer so the stellaris version isn't important in this case. (Not so for the realslave mods however!) The other nations don't have "breezy" clothing selections by default. The issue now however.... is whether or not your mod is overriding EoS. Before our "lovely" new launcher you didn't have to think about it. Now you have to make sure this patch is -below- EoS. (I think. Or is it above still? I only do testing these days. Until they get a decent launcher I'm not playing. 🤡 The good news is, they are working on it. But it's still pretty messy at present.) When the portrait 3.0 rework is done, I'll update this again of course.
  12. Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together, mass hysteria!!! 🤣
  13. That's another thing. If you have an account with no personal information, who cares if it gets breached? The thing that always gets me with a lot of smaller websites (and even Big Tech) is that very often the breaches are their own fault and have nothing to do with users being stupid. Sure there are stupid users like the thing with the celebrity phones, but the usual situation is a site with weak to plain idiotic security. Case in point, Amazon was breached awhile back. It was their own fault. And my giant nonsensical password compromised. But I didn't store any credit cards and all the hackers got is where I send my packages which is a company. 🐲 For the freebie stuff I do use Yandex actually. Pretty decent image search! The Ducky has similar issues to Google image search. Maybe not quite as bad, but I just did another test and it's showing similar problems. Just for completeness I tested Yandex and got expected results. Now of course you can kind of bypass Google entirely by using stuff like StartPage. (Which is actually the way I used Googe image search.) But that is still a Google search, just behind another site. You can find the same biased search results through that as you can get via Google directly. Since really looking into this, I see the Google bias is actually quite dreadful and certainly not limited to images. (And why would it be?) There are some funny at best and at worst horrifying auto-completes and the top results for some search queries are ... disturbing. (Or hilarious depending on viewpoint!) 🤣 As for Google mail.... yeah... no real point in using that now unless you have no issues with every single one of your messages being read, stored, and probably checked for wrong-think. 🤡
  14. What is so great about that article is how they package their argument. It's for your own safety of course. Just give them your phone number. Is that so hard for a little security?? 🤣 The clue of course is the penalty for not giving them a number. They don't give a rip whether or not your stuff is stolen in case of a breach. They want that number dammit. 🤣 But yeah it seems I'm stuck as well. But I wouldn't ever use the market anyway. The tone reminds of the time I needed to buy something via steam. They had a rule that you can only upload a mod publicly if you've bought something once. (Convenient rule! 🙃) So I found a 5€ game and thought that was the end of it. Only I wasn't in the country where I started the Steam account. Steam's response was basically: "Screw you, keep your money, and also we're incompetent." A VPN magically transported me back to the original country and it was solved that way. That said, I was reticent to buy through Steam before that experience. After, I plain refuse to buy anything at all through the Steam store. I find gaming is significantly cheaper and more satisfying when done via sales only. And for some reason I have better luck with sales not on Steam. Also avoids the rage I'd feel plopping down 60 or more for an unfinished game. Which is most of the AAA titles lately. Steam probably still get their 30 pieces of silver but it's at a greatly reduced rate. 🤣
  15. I just doubled checked what I did with Steam. I used their email authentication nonsense instead of the phone app. If I recall, Steam Guard (the 2-factor whatsit) is required to be able to upload public mods and comment. But I don't use the market at all and in fact generally don't buy games through steam ever. So perhaps that market thing is in effect for me and I'd just never know about it. I didn't read it all (because really, Google) but what I did... WOW. Very interesting. No wonder their searches are skewed to hell. Also I felt like being a Wiki nutter and slapping "citation needed" on several of their assumptions. 🤣 🤣
