    I was just wondering, but I got to thinking about making a program that would utilize other computers users' bandwidth when they were not. Does anyone have a clue what I'm talking about or know of any way this might can be done???

    I guess it would be kind of like distributed computing but with bandwidth instead of computer cycles.

    You are given a certain bandwidth cap by your ISP depending on the type of services you pay them for. I don't think you can simply add another user's bandwidth to yours.

    Guess I'll move on to bigger and better things...

    The graphics tweaks (aka Riva Tuner) are pretty easy to implement, and I should have them in the next release. Which I'll post in a week or so.

    The benchmarking side would be quite hard to do, but I will attempt it in time :)

    The "soft" CPU overclocking feature would be really useful, but at the moment I have no idea how I could implement it :confused:


    New website will be at http://tweakdb.tk soon

    Disabling CD autoplay for all CD Drives ( DVD, CD-RW, etc... ) with just one click. I don't like having to set it to off for every CD Drive.

    The CD Autorun should be easy to implement, so I'll try and get that done for the next release. Auto logon is certainly possible, and would be quite useful, so I'll try to do that as well.

    What CS Tweaks would you like ?

    I'd like to see it bend steel, give me money and toast buttered bread in the morning because I'm usually hungry when I wake up.

    Bend Steel = If you have a suitable Steel Bending USB Device
    Give Money = If you have a FIREWIRE ATM connected
    Toast Buttered Bread = Come on be Serious :D :D :D

    CS tweaks for Newbies to CS.

    Examples are:

    Cl_rate cm_drate cl_updaterate for 56k, Broadband and Cable users.

    Graphics: Lame 100 fps Medium 50 fps and High settings for top end users. Or for Geforce 1 2 3 i dunno what easyer.

    I think only cl_update rate is the only setting in couter strike config so u could change that and add others, im shall your figure it out. Also the abilty to undo changes.


    U could lalso design a logo for your Application.

    I was planning on designing a logo soon, as part of the gui redesign and production of my website.

    Thanks for some inspiration on the CS Tweaks though. Has anyone got any other game tweaks they want adding?

    Finally finished all of the coursework to go with it so I could hand it in as my programming project.
    Lecturers seemed to be impressed with it :)

    I have an AthlonXP.
