  1. It is certanly from around 2011. I am still thinking it is software-related though, as safemode works normal. Yeah. I considered nuking as well. However I am studying abroad in costa rica. Hard to get by stuff here. But I will see that I get win7 cd somehow. Probably the safer solution.
  2. Hi guys. This is not entirely KSP-related, but I think I need help on this. I'm "quite tech savvy" and I tend to get this every now and then. But this time, I may have been outsmarted. This may have been caused by some magic malware or .exe file that snuck onto the system. Here are my specs. Laptop - Samsung RV520 Windows 7 Home edition / SP1 Err, not sure which other specs could actually be viable. I am currently using Win7 safe mode to post. Here's what roughly happened and the symptoms. Symptom: As soon as I start the computer, win7 loads, but it seems to be immediately affected by something. It seems something is loading the CPU by 100%. However, even if I open the Task Manager + Resource Monitor, I can't see what is using the CPU. But something IS killing the processing speed. It's impossible to do anything else really. Any attempt of opening anything will only slow it down until it wants to restart explorer.exe or anything (A window pops up with "Microsoft Windows is no longer responding". Hitting restart will only cause it to freeze further). What I did so far: I used Win7 safemode and used Malwarebytes and Spybot Search&Destroy. It did kill the usual floating stuff, but the lagging is still there. Another problem I have is Free Avira. Now, this is probably my mistake. It hasn't really been updating all this time through. It's been stuck on this 2015 version. And it's always been acting up with blabla, you need admin rights (although I am logged in as admin) and I just stopped caring. Now, I wanted to see if I could use freeAvira to do a full scan, but it also won't load either now. And, well, if I let the computer load win7 in normal mode, it will only try to start Avira and just lag to oblivion ,_, This sorta came out of nowhere yesterday. What I actually was doing: I was drag-dropping some images from pinterest into my reference img folder. Like literally, drag and dropping. Was no big deal until it just simply started to lag/freeze out of nowhere. I know windows tends to act up. Usually, I could always rely on task manager, find the culprit .exe or whatever process and just rename it. However, this time, I can't even see any process really doing anything. And by the time stuff fill the list, it's already "lagging". There must be some sort of process/exe that is hidden and not showing up. I hope it is not some registry virus trojan whatever. I don't know if HijackThis would help at this point? Any advice?
  3. Inappropriate, but my reaction exactly.
  4. I was under the impression that blinky green light is a safety. Whereas a constant green light is 'next stage immediately activated when SPACEBAR'ED '.
  5. I can't suggest anything intelligent really, but I can say this as a contrast: I am playing on a Samsung RV520 laptop, nVidia GT520m, i5 (dunno about generation). Since the 1.2 I have quite 'stable' fps with some 300 parts. I still think you can do some settings tweaking. Another thing to keep in mind: My buddy who plays Sins of A Solar Empire told me recently that the game would lag hard in late game. Turned out that lagging was a memory leak due to the sound (!). He shut sound off and now it is enjoyable. So check mainboard/soundcard drivers too, as redundant as that may sound.
  6. Argh, doh. Makes sense. Can't have it all, eh?
  7. Thanks a lot guys. So yeah, swim with or against the stream. For now, I set steam to offline mode. I will do thr copy I should have bought the non-steam version heh.
  8. Hey guys. Ok. First off. I love the patches. I really do. But they destroy my progress and I love the modded career progresss. So, this time I intend to do the nonsteam game method to avoid patching. But I have a question. Will steam continue to register the hours played or is this 'the sacrificial punishment' I must pay if I have to go for patch avoidance? Not that it is that important but I really play A LOT and would like to keep track of it. Although it still shows how much I suck because I am stuck with the Mun/Minmus equivalents of the GPP mod.
  9. I follow a little system. First I put some mission code like IOTAX (galileo mod's closest moon is Iota. X is for Expeditionary.) and some mission number. ISS would be Iota Space Station. SAT-(two letters). First letter depicts size. Like A would be something below 2 tons. Second letter for type of task. Comms relay, sci-lander, grand tour. Etc. Manned stuff gets two letters and random numbers. Still have to figure if I give numbers meaning - but these also tend to get fancy kerby code names. The second letter obviously defines the general role. J is for support. Like refueling. C is commercial, for doing transports like Airplane related contracts from contract pack mods. There are other roles but I can't remember right now. Rovers usually get RR. Only recently did I manage to get the Bon Voyage mode to work, and now rovers have an awesome purpose. One can launch a mini SCUD back to Gael/Kerbin. Filmed it too :3.
  10. Think it also depends on the size. If it i some tiny junk, it is not worth it. On the other hand, though, I had not tried using demolition tools. Career mode tends to be tricky at times to worry about deorbiting stuff. I had some bad ascent profiles and stuff just managed to remain in eternal orbit.
  11. Planned to remove debris manually? Yes. On a more roleplay side. I never got to actually doing it because patches tend to kill savegames and the mods related to them. Note that patches are just tooooo damn good to pass on, especially when 1.2 came with code cleanup. That helps losers with loooow-end laptops like me a ton. But back to debris stuff. I have already planned this agency which is basically a Kerbal Retrieval Program , tasked to retrieve kerbies and debris in Low Homeworld Orbit.
  12. I'm still stuck with GPP, but this is certainly on my to-play-dis-mod list. Like the stuff. Haha, I wonder how this would work with that n-dynamics mod xD
  13. This is unlikely, I think. I am playing hard/custom with no reverts and I had already played on due to my addiction to ksp. Logs should be possible. Provided I didn't leave that no-log launch option on (unless my brain is playing games with my mind again).
  14. Anyways. This would be the right time to grab the log. However, I will need to wait until my house inet is back.
  15. @danielboro @Merkov The ship had some 300ish / 400 supp, with roughly 4 days available. As soon as it docked, it was immediately depleted and "expired". Thankfully LS is not set to kia. Ok, I suppose it is a bug. This is not tragic as I had sent a fuel truck + food, but this could be devastating on distant planets.
