Anyways, nice to see you guys again, I need to catch up here.

Any chance you can let us know how u get on there vvalentine
sounds like a very usefull spec dumping tool your onto.

Yeah, it is, I need it for work, and right now is very very sloppy, but ehh, as long as it does the work.  I need it by Tuesday since at work we are running an inventory on the computer hardware in the computer labs, and damn, it's too many for me to do alone (500+).  I'll clean the source code and make comments on it, and I'll post it.   It's not that much of source code, and it will not be once I organize it.

The info you are looking for is in class Win32_PhysicalMemory (surprise!).

Thank you so much Jari.  I'm glad we have you back.

Well, I'm doing this tool to create an excel file with hardware information on Windows 2000 machines.

So far it's been easy by accessing the registry, however, I am having problems getting memory information.

The main things I want to find are:

RAM speed
Memory slots taken
Amount of RAM per memory module

I've tried looking in the registry for some information about this, but no luck.  I also tried to access the CMOS, but I don't have enough knowlege of Assembly.  A little help will be greatly appreciated.

An example would be great, but I only need to know which header files to include and what functions to call.

Thanks (cya guys later, busy busy busy).

I played it during beta, so I get to keep my handle name.  I don't know if I'm able to use the beta version or have to buy the game.  But I too will wait for Friday cuz it's pay day.

I think the main thing that bugs me about Aeris is her hair. What's with the puffed-out bangs? That's Sephiroth's style!! I definately like Tifa better than Aeris, because she has a better attitude about everything. Aeris always whines about some small thing every minute of the game. Also, I think that Tifa is definately the right girl for Cloud. They've known each other since childhood, and Cloud saved her arse during the nibelheim incident. They're made for each other! Aeris kind of steps in out of nowhere...blah...

That's how I'll describe Aeris. "Blah".

I like the way you think :D .

I don't like Aeris, I don't know why you guys find her attractive :x .  I said it before and I'll say it again, I AM GLAD SHE DIED, and she better not revive.

I like either Yuffie or Selphie.  Yeah, Selphie is more of my type.

I didn't play FF VII that much, who is Hojo again??  EEK! Don't smack me!!  I'm sorry I got somewhat through it and then my save file just vansished, and I was not gonna start all over again.  I might someday because it was a really good play.  Was he the head of Shinra?  I truely forgot...It's been a while...

*smack in the back of the head*.  Hojo, Shinra's top scientist, in charge of the Jenova project.  Father of Sephiroth.  Go back and play the game.

Nope, it is not confirmed yet.  Nothing is official yet, and I don't think square would want to give out it's major shocker.

This some other translated stuff:

"I want to forgive you, but I can't forgive you," Cloud says while standing in front of a grave that appeared out of nowhere.  (In Asian countries, a sword out of the ground symbolizes where its wielder died.)  "Your death has been decided."

That may be a possible answer too.  I just read something like that a short while ago.  But so far (it seems) that I'm the only one that has come up with the theory that it's Hojo the one in the wheelchair.  I think I'm going to stick with my theory, it just makes more sense to me.  Now, if only I can make bets, hmmm :-? .

Edit:  My bad, I found someone who has mentioned Hojo as the guy in the wheelchair.

Edit 2: Found out what the girl in the beginning says:

"That day, the power was used.  Therefore, the star now lives.  The humans have become the star, their souls among the star.  And I had thought it would all be over..."  (Translation Note: 'Star' may be referring to The Planet.)

Maybe the Star Scar Syndrome is another defense mechanism from the planet (because sephiroth or something related to Jenova is still alive).

Things to say about the trailer and FF7 AC.

Is that really Sephiroth?  I mean, he looks like him, except for the short hair, or could he be some sort of reincarnation or something?  I also read that it's a sephiroth clone.

Sephiroth (assuming it's him) now has a 2 blade sword.

What is the Star Scar Syndrome?  Obviously, this has to do with the meteor summon.

Possible character in white robe, and on wheel chair:

Rufus -  In this pic, you can see the Shinra logo on the corner.  In the trailer you can see it more clearly.  Rufus liked to wear white, and he may have gotten paralyzed and burned after the diamond weapon's attack (thus wearing a robe covering his body).

The real Sephiroth - Can't think of any real reasons why, but it may be a possibility.

Jenova - I doubt it, but there is always a chance.

Hojo - He may have gotten hurt only.  Maybe, the guy in black is sephiroth after all and being his son, he may be helping him out.  Maybe hojo, made a clone of sephiroth, or tried to do an army of sephiroth's, or maybe it's not sephiroth or a sephiroth clone, but someone who also recieved Jenova's genes at birth, thus being like sephiroth.  And maybe this guy does treat Hojo as a father, or maybe it is his father.  Too many damn questions.

I am more inclined to believe that this story involves Hojo a lot.  Think about it.  Midgard is where his lab is (they're back in midgard), and as it seems back in the Shinra building or Mansion (both have Hojo's labs), this may explain seeing the Shinra logo in that room.  Maybe Hojo has something to do with the Star Scar Syndrome.

The guy in black is using magic, who knows which?  Maybe an enemy skill?

Can someone translate what they say in the trailer?

Hey buddy, you could have added this to the topic about FF7 AC that already exists.  But HEY, not bad either, finally something good has come out of you (even if it was only 1 post out of 50 useless posts of yours).

Man, this Sephiroth2000 guy is really something, huh?  I wonder how much longer he'll keep acting like a 9 year old, or until a mod takes action :x .

Edit: Honestly, I'm kinda having enough of him.  So I'm also speaking my mind about it, I DON'T LIKE HIM :evil: .  I'm with Cadberry and Sir Robert.

Oh Gawd, I can feel the average IQ in these forums falling drastically.

Sephiroth2000: Can I ask you, how old are you?

LOL, that's funny stuff  :lol: .  I agree, while I don't want to bash anyone, it seems some people do want to be.  I mean, the guy has been told already, and he still keeps on making short or lame posts.  But I treat newbies fairly ok, a smack in the head once in a while doesn't hurt either.  It's just that it makes the 'quality' of the board a little bit more bleh.  I'm not trying to be elitist, but they can at least put an effort into trying to fit in.  That's just my opinion.

Heh. I always do that.

Heh, and that explains a lot.  I don't think that by posting random spam will make you a very likable person here.  You might want to slow down on the unnecessary posts, or you're on a really bad start.  I really don't think you'll want to be our next bash victim.

that would be called copying and stealing

Not if I'm currently playing it as a beta tester.

I'm talking about if the ones who got to beta test get to keep their copy of the game and just pay monthly.  I also wonder if I get to keep my character.

I wonder if I would be able to play without buying the game and only pay monthly.  After all, I have all the updates.

:-?  :-?

Hmmmm, is it me or lately has a lot of people been joining, posting, and then leaving?

Not only that, but some of the posts they make sound corny, or make no sense what so ever (this refers to the posts made by the guy above me).

Edit:  The term "drive by posting" just popped into my mind.

That city should be Gongaga, not Midgar or Junon..
That thing that potrudes out is the blasted reasctor at Gongaga ;)

Since this is 2 years after the game, Shin-Ra doesn't exist anymore.  Therefore all reactors may be in that state.  So it can be anywhere.

You know what I reallized from the above article?  I think Square may be releasing a remake of FFVII with current graphics.  Just think about it, they are releasing a movie with characters that don't look exactly the way they were in the game.    A lot of people have been wanting to have the master piece that FFVII is into a game that takes advantage of today's graphics, and make it more extended with things they may have missed in the previous game (since it was rushed (and NO, I hope they don't make an Aeris revival quest, yuck :x )).  

This would sell probably as much as the first one, if only they would let the story line intact.  However, if this was to happen, then they should release it before this movie comes out.  Who knows, maybe they've really been working on it secretely.

Edit:  Plus, there are new people that play FF games and haven't played FFVII.

I need to try that trick.  Didn't even know you could do something like that.

Damn, you know what?  They've been holding on to these titles for quite a while, and seems like they're going to have continuous sales.  First FFXI is due this october, after that it's going to be KH2 and the other KH game, then FFVII:AC, then FF12.  Yeah, they're going to earn bank in the next 2-3 years.

Edit:  Cadberry: Yeah, I know they're going to be making bank, but lately (as of the past 2-3 years) they haven't released many games.  It's like they decided, "well, let's have all these games ready to sell almost at the same time", and BAMM, an avalanche of money.

Man, talk about spam  :o .  I think you need to cut the posting a little bit buddy.  Especially the old topics.

Anyways, about your problem.  What version of windows do you have, also make sure there aren't any scratches in the CDs.  I had a similar problem, because everytime it would start to load an FMV, it froze because the CD had a scratch (actually a bunch of 'em).
