Groundtactics.com - Returning to it's roots

I've had this domain for years. It's suited different purposes for me at different times but since the introduction of a wife and kids in my life it's kinda grown stale.

So recently I've decided I'm going to try to return this site closer to it's roots. While I doubt the quake 3 clan this site was founded around will ever re-unite, I'm bringing this site back to as close to those roots as I can. I'm a fan of gaming and that's what I'll be making clear here.

xxWindows 10 - Some modest thoughts.

July 30, 2015, 12:35:54 pm by Ed | Views: 4655 | Comments: 0

As an IT guy, I've learned the hard way not to jump into Day 1 upgrades.  For some reason though, I had so much giddy anticipation for Windows 10, I couldn't help myself and the first machine in my home that I upgraded was none other then my main daily use computer.  There wasn't much to the marketing and I didn't particularly hate Windows 8 like the rest of the world.  It's hard to explain.

So I got the upgrade on Day 1.  Do I feel stupid?  Yes.  Do I feel let down?  No.

To clarify on these polarizing points:  Windows 10 is actually very nice.  Ultimately, I feel like Windows 8 might as well have never existed.  Windows 8 was a bit faster then 7 but had a god awful interface.  Windows 10 dials the worst parts of the Windows 8 interface back to make windows 7 users feel comfortable again.  It also improves further on the performance of Windows 8.  It felt like Windows 10 was meant to be the real successor of windows 7.  If windows 8 came out after 10, I'm not sayi...

xxOVEmu - An Emulator for The Omega Virus

I made it and finally released it.  An Emulator to replace the central computer in Omega Virus.  More info on this original 1992 electronic board game of awesomeness can be found here:  https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/3086/omega-virus

The Emulator uses a client/server model so you basically host a game to start.  Hosting a game was an essential design decision because I wanted the emulator to work with tabletop simulator.  For something like Tabletop simulator to work right, netplay is required so all players can interact directly with the emulator regardless of location.

In the near future I'll be adding a 'Lets Play' to show a full game played in Tabletop Simulator with this emulator.

A video preview of the emulator being used in Tabletop Simulator is here:
