The Long Delay Begins
Hello everyone. Today I'm about to give some very disappointing news to those who are interested in my mod. My computer broke down two days ago due to a graphics card issue and I've tried my best to fixed the problem. But apparently, I've tried almost every solution and I finally realized what really was the outcome to my computer. After two years of use, It's been one of the worse computers I've ever owned in my life. It has a 1.7 Ghz Processor, a 300MB Graphics card, 4GB Ram, and a 500GB hard drive. Of course, I know many others own computers that are worse than this, but yeah, this was the worst one I had own.
I've always hated this computer because many of the things I wanted to achieve were almost impossible. It's hard to edit in Sony Vegas Pro 10, Very hard to make films in Source Filmmaker, Record Gmod footage, and It's even hard to mod and play without any lag or inefficiency all for a very simple reason. My PC was too weak. Even though this PC was not efficient, I will miss it. Why? because it can at least achieve half of the things I wanted to do. For Example, I was at least able to develop a Markiplier Mod on this computer. I was also able to make artwork done In Gmod. Edit Music and Sound Effects.
Now on the bright side, I will be keeping the hard drive I had for this computer, because why the hell would I want to start all over? :P The progress I had done for the past year is far too valuable for me to let go. Trust me It's really that good. But anyways, Once when I get a much more efficient computer, I will try to collect the data from my old PC's hard drive and store it all in my new future PC. I will be starting where I left off!
Now here's the ultimate question. "Mario, Your PC broke down. Are you going to quit?" Clearly, Never. Just because your computer broke down It does not mean it's okay to quit. It's going to take a whole lot more than negative comments or computers breaking down if I'm going to quit. I'm going to finish when this and my future mods are complete. I'm a very optimistic person when it comes to my projects. What I'm trying to say is don't give up for very simple things. Keep trying because later in the future, you will regret it.
I maybe getting my new PC around somewhere in May. There is actually many more things I want to do than just modding. I would also love to make SFM Films, Gmod Films, and more which is one of the reasons I will need a good computer. As of right now, I'm taking "shelter" In my family's computer which is much weaker than my old computer. I cannot do any modding or any other projects at the moment (besides making artwork, but I know you guys don't want more art). I'm only going to be planning what I will add in my mod later, and I'll try to be active in the community here.
It's a very long wait and I know how upsetting this can be, But I'll still keep my promise. I promised I will release In-Game Screenshots and a Pre-Alpha Release. It's just going to take a long while until I can finally get some progress done. Wish me luck guys, I will see you next time.
and again, I'm very sorry this had to happen!
