Fix Google Cardboard double vision with large screens


OnePlus Cardboard double vision fix

I was disappointing when I first tried my new Google CardBoard kit with my 5.5 inch OnePlus One. It had a severe double vision problem that made it impossible to use.

Even though the Cardboard kit that I bought was supposedly the “Large” model, the kit seemed to work fine with smaller phones but not the OnePlus.

I found some solutions online but none of them really worked, so finally I came up with my own solution, which solved the cardboard double vision problem completely with my large OnePlus running Android 5.1

1. Go to the Settings -> Display.

2. Change the LCD density from the default 480 DPI to 360.

3. The phone will soft reboot.

4. Try Cardboard now, the problem is solved!

I’m Alive

It’s not like if there was thousands of people longing for every update on angrybyte.com . But for all three of you that actually noticed and cared. I was not around for almost 5 months, no updates, no comments, no moderation. The reason is simple.

I live in Libya 🙂 , I’m not Libyan, but for some twisted reason I live there. Shortly after the beginning of the Libyan revolution on the 17th of February, the government closed the internet. and it was just reconnected a while ago as rebels took over Tripoli.

I never thought that I would sanely survive half a year without the company of Bytes flowing gracefully through my computer, but hey I’m still here.

There was also an incident related to another website on my hosting account that got angrybyte.com taken down for almost a month, I had to go undercover to a governmental facility to get Internet  and fix the issue, I was not discovered, arrested, or killed. Thank you.

Some might ask if it was all worth it, I may say yes. I could have left but I didn’t. It is truly a once in a life time to witness a revolution, a war, and an independence.

Thank you all of caring and I will start updating frequently very soon.

FFXIV – the recipes generator

You must have seen the FFXIV recipe generator that I’m developing, it is much better now compared to yesterday, again the idea is simple, enter all items in your Inventory and loot, the generatior will tell you what you can do with it.

I’m planning on adding an automated system to submit recipes, but meanwhile please help out by submitting your recipes in the forums here http://ffxiv.angrybyte.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3

If you discover bugs with the generator, please report them in the forums, or even here if you want!

It is never expected ( as a friendly stranger heal in FFXIV) but if you like my work and want to give something  back,  please visit the donations page, or just buy FFXIV through our Amazon store

Connecting to IWnet… Am I banned? ALTERIWNET

Many of you must have heard about the alteriwnet, for those who didn’t, it is an alternative network to play Call of Duty : Modern warfare II. which has come as a reaction to the lack of dedicated server support on this new COD.

What is good about this network is that cheater can be easily reported and banned from the game ( I hope they would do the same to gl noobs as well).

When you are banned from the network, the game will display a message “Connecting to IWNet…” and never connects.

If you haven’t cheated,  (( now have you? >:(  )) but you got this message then it could be one of the following:

– Someone has reported you because of a personal problem.

-Someone else using your computer DID cheat and got busted.

For the two above you will have to file a complaint to the alteriwnet forums and see what you can do.

Now for the things that can block you game from connecting even though you are not banned

-You have installed and running Hamachi

-You have installed and running Tunngle

-You have installed an inactive network card

-Your windows mobile phone is connected to your computer 🙂

simply go to the “network adapters confuguration” on your cmputer whatever the hell you kids call it today, (on XP: network connections, on Vista:Manage Network Connections, and on 7: confirgure network thingy) And disable every network card excep for the one that is providing you with Internet access. If the game still doesn’t work then your ass is banned or you simply do not have internet access.

To know more about how you can get AlterIWnet visit www.alteriw.net

Go any altenative reasons not to be able to connect? share them here!

cosplay-naruto.com a website with a unique gallery system on WordPress

Hi.

Today, I got online a new website dedicated to Naruto Cosplay images. The website uses wordpress with a prototype of a gallery system for wordpress that I’m developing. The script is around 1300 lines long, and brings many features that are unavailable until today for wordpress.

cosplay-naruto.com

You might ask “Why wordpress?” there are many image CMS and gallery scripts for this, I say that only wordpress comes with thousands of plugins and themes, a solid interface and a tight security, nothing can beat wordpress in my opinion. But still no reliable gallery plugin is available to use it for picture based websites.

This plugin (I’m still not sure how I will call it) was originally developed to be a wordpress MOD not a plugin, but when I started to learn more about wordpress plugins I decided that a plugin will suffice for the task without altering the original wordpress scripts

The websites theme is also highly customized, I started from the well known Heat Map Theme, which is a SE freindly AD-Sense   ready theme, I changed it to have a dynamic width, played around with the pictures and colors. and finally got a good looking overall.

I will be publishing both the plugin and the theme of wordpress.org once I finish working on a releasable version.

I invite you all to go there and visit,  and please report back if you discover any bugs.

Recording any sound that is being played on your speakers windows 7

Hi everyone. Today we will learn how to record any music , radio, game sound, just anything that your computer can play and save it. This was easy back in days on windows XP. But now it has become a little tricky because the stereo mixing device is now disabled by default in windows 7 and Vista.

To enable it just right click the speaker icon near the clock, then click “recording device”. Then right click any blank space below your devices list and click “Show disabled devices”. Then enable the “Stereo mix” device and set it as the default. Now you can start recording.

This is a first, but  I tried to add a video description to this post. please check it out and tell me how you like it. should I have these video descriptions more often?
