Fans Solve One of GTA 5's Biggest Mysteries

Fans Solve One of GTA 5's Biggest Mysteries

An elite team of Grand Theft Auto V players have resolved a major mystery. The hunt began with the discovery of the golden peyote plant – a hallucinogenic herb that transforms the player into Bigfoot. Then, in search of more of the hidden herb, players took to combing through the game’s code in the hopes of finding more spawn locations. And more locations they did find. Not only did the players find coordinates, they also found coded messages from the developers at RockStar. One such message reads “he was wrong to start his hunt on Tuesday.” What the herb-hunting taskforce deduced was each plant must appear on a specific day of the week, under specific weather conditions. With one golden peyote found, this left the team only another six to go. Continue reading…

Overwatch Becomes Korea's Most Popular Internet Cafe Game

Overwatch Becomes Korea's Most Popular Internet Cafe Game

Overwatch is now the biggest game in South Korean internet cafes. According to Gametrics (via Polygon), more than 30 percent of gamers in the country’s PC bangs (internet cafes) are jumping on to play Blizzard’s new MOBA. Its popularity is pushing Korean favourite League of Legends down to 27.8 percent, toppling it from the top spot it has occupied since August 2012. Bangs are a huge part of Korean gaming culture – a trend that goes hand in hand with Overwatch’s developer, Blizzard, whose 1998 RTS Starcraft became an unprecedented hit in the country. 4.5 million of the game’s 9.5 million total sales were made in South Korea alone.

Build an interactive Raspberry Pi AP

Build an interactive Raspberry Pi AP

This article features the PaPiRus, the Pi PoE, and the Raspberry Pi 3 to build a portable access point with a screen. We will be working with the Pi PoE, but everything in this tutorial can be achieved without it, too. This tutorial assumes your version of Raspbian Jessie is up-to-date. You’ll need PaPiRus ePaper / eInk Screen HAT Pi PoE Switch HAT TP-LINK PoE Injector (optional) 40-pin header GPIO adapter for RPi-Display B+ – female PuTTY Putting everything together Building this access point is extremely easy. It requires minimal soldering and for the rest, it’s really just a question of stacking together the various components. The additional header will allow us to install the PaPiRus on top of the Pi PoE, but we did this via the GPIO adapter. In some cases, your infrastructure will already be able to deliver Power over Ethernet; if not, you’ll need to use a PoE injector like the TP-LINK TL-POE150S. Connect everything up, making sure that the flat cable for the PaPiRus is connected the right way around. Once all is connected and ready to use, a long press on the switch of the Pi PoE module will power up the system. Preparing the access point For the initial preparation, we need to enable SPI. Go to the program menu and find the Raspberry Pi Configuration menu to make sure it’s enabled in the Interfaces tab. Reboot the Raspberry Pi. We’re now ready to install and configure hostapd, which we will use to create the AP part of our system.sudo apt-get install hostapdThen we need to create the configuration file as follows. Note that the file doesn’t exist and that we’re creating a brand new one. This is the right time to download the supporting code from GitHub, which also contains the templates for the configuration files.git clone https://github.com/francesco-vannini/PaPiRus-AP.gitOpen the hostapd.conf template file in the terminal with:sudo nano PaPiRus-AP/hostapd.confReplace the values for ssid and wpa_passphrase in this conf file with details for your network, then copy the file hostapd.conf to the correct directory:sudo cp PaPiRus-AP/hostapd.conf /etc/hostapdAt this point, we need to edit the following file to make hostapd use the above configuration at startup. Open the file with sudo nano /etc/default/hostapd and change it by adding:DAEMON_CONF=”/etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf”Lastly, we start the service with sudo systemctl start hostapd. We really want this configuration not to depend on services that will automatically alter our network settings, so we’ll disable…
