#230507 AC: Black flag ac4bfsp.exe has stopped working

Posted by SaltySam on December 12, 2017

When the game crashes, is it showing anything in Windows Event viewer ? Also, in the geforce experience are there optimized settings you can enable for the game prior to launching?

 

Also, check out this thread Paronity made about forcing the problem program to create a .dmp file when it crashes: http://gsngaming.com...-dump-on-crash/

 

The contents of a .dmp file could give us some more information on how to diagnose this issue.

My latest projects! The 3 cutting boards I made out of Red Oak and Poplar and that mobile work bench that is made out of 4 reclaimed cabinets, 2 sheets of 3/4 ply and some casters! It's got a ton of storage for whatever I need and can currently hold about 1800lbs without breaking the wheels off!

That is so sexy, hnnngggggggg haha 

 

I am wanting to build my own desk for my setup but I don't know how to go about doing that... :wallbash:

To be totally honest, start by googling/youtube searching desks and seeing what other people have come up with, i have always had a bit of do-it-yourself-er in me but i had ZERO experience with something as complicated as a full size base cabinet before. I hadn't build much more than framed 2x4 stuff prior to this just dove in head first and took my time

To get this started off, here is one of my most recent projects to date. This is a base cabinet/work bench that I designed and built myself from scratch. 

 

Designed it to scale in SketchUp to get a feel for the size and allow me to make a cut list to see the cost of materials

Spoiler

Made up the carcass/framed out the face

Spoiler

Built the Drawers and installed the hardware

Spoiler

After making the top and applying a crap ton of finish, I insulated and sheathed the walls behind the bench, ran some more power and installed the pegboard after installing the bench!

Spoiler

 

 

I had never built even so much as a bookshelf when I decided to take this project on and even though a skilled eye sees a bunch of flaws, I am proud as fuck to have the finished product you see before you. It was close to 60 hours of working on just the building of the cabinet itself and I wouldn't trade the learning experiences/screw-ups for anything. Now to find out what the next big challenge could be! 

 

Hope you like, criticism is welcome!

Hey everyone! As anyone that knows me knows, I love to build/fix/attempt to do as much around my house/cars/shop as possible without asking for help or paying a professional to come do it for me.

 

In the spirit of this, I wanted to start up a thread to let everyone showcase their own DIY projects both during/after and also a place for people to ask questions and learn stuff too! 

 

So feel free to post anything from installing new door knobs to overhauling engines! I would love to see and hear the stories of the trials and tribulations of fellow DIY enthusiasts! 




#230455 What do you do? (Jobs Post)

Posted by SaltySam on December 04, 2017

Seeing as it's been a while since I last posted in here, I figured I would update this with the new job.

 

I'm still working at the power plant going on my 9th year there but have recently(last July) got promoted to control room supervisor. It's still shift work a.k.a. still working nights, weekends, and holidays throughout the year. However, instead of running around the plant all hours of the day and night in terrible conditions, I am confined to one of two control rooms(Coal units or Natural Gas units) and I get to be the one to tell the plant operators what needs to be done. 

 

It's a job that continues to teach me the ins and outs of the plant but instead of sweating my nutsack off everyday, I can just walk over and turn down the thermostat. 

 

When someone asks what I do, I tell them I do Homer Simpson's job. And that's about what it boils down to.
