Sorcerer Pet Builds – Elder Scrolls Online

Sorcerer Pet BuildsElder Scrolls Online is a game I have currently got myself absorbed into, as mentioned previously with my beginners guide to the game, today let’s take an in-depth look as character builds for a Sorcerer class focused on using pets.

When I originally played World of Warcraft, the Hunter class was my favourite because of the way you could tame beasts around the world of the game and even give them a name. Not to mention it was an excellent solo-play class which was mostly what I was interested in.

Although, not quite as extensive as that, the sorcerer class did call out to me in Elder Scrolls Online because it has a skill line dedicated to summoning.

When I was playing WOW and Neverwinter Online, I would find myself to be an Altoholic, I would get so far in one class and then create another...

How To Embed The Latest Videos From A YouTube Channel

Latest Videos

During my last quest, I showed 10 Creepy Mystery YouTube channels you should be watching, and I also included embed videos for each of those channels that will always play the latest video for that channel.

First we need to know the channel ID of the channel. I found other methods of doing this online using the username of the channel instead, however some channels don’t have their own actual username)

Play any video on YouTube from your desired channel. Click on the channel name just above the description field.

Elder Scrolls Online – Beginners Guide and Tips

Elder Scrolls Online

I have recently started playing Elder Scrolls Online on the Xbox One and I am finding it a lot of fun.

Here are some tips and help that I have found for anyone else starting this game for the first time also.

I hope you find it useful.

I currently do not have the Morrowind Expansion yet, so I haven’t gone into any detail regarding it or the Warden class.

Elder Scrolls Online – Races and Class

The four main roles that this game covers are:

Magicka-based damage dealer
Stamina-based damage dealer

With the way the system works in skills, each of the playable classes can pretty much focus on any of the roles.

Each race has a skill tree and some of the bonuses make it easier suited to a specific class or build.

How to create a soundboard for your own website

How to create a soundboard

In this tutorial I will show you how to create a soundboard similar to the ones I have previously used.

Here are a couple of examples:

Minsc Baldur’s Gate Soundboard

Minsc Neverwinter Soundboard

Seregant Knox Neverwinter Soundboard

How to create a soundboard – MP3 files

The audio format to use is MP3.

If these files are already in MP3, feel free to skip to the next step.

If they anything else (wav, ogg etc) then we need to convert these first.

AUDACITY can be used. Simply install the program. Open the sound file, and click files – export audio and make sure to change the file type to mp3 as you save it.

Online Audio Converter has the added benefits of being able to convert multiple files at once. However it is online only and could take a while.

You may want to rename the MP3 files to som...

Hogg files – How to extract and play sound and music from a game – Neverwinter

Hogg filesC:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptic Studios\Neverwinter\Live\piggs

Do you remember the Minsc from Neverwinter Soundboard?

I created that by extracting and converting the .hogg files found within the games files.

Here I will show you how I did that so you can do the same.

The example I used is from the Steam version of Neverwinter, although it should work with any game using .hogg files. (with a bit of luck)

I am using a Windows O/S and I am not sure how it will work on different operating systems.

Rave in the Redwoods

This is a list of general tips and tricks to survive longer or complete the Easter Eggs as quickly as possible in the first DLC for the zombie mode in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, entitled Rave in the Redwoods.

Some of these tips can be used in Zombies in Spaceland and I am sure some could be relevant to other Zombie games in the COD series.

A lot of these tips are aimed for Solo or Custom Game modes.

Rave in the Redwoods – Beginning Tips

The M1 gun is at the top of the stairs near the spiked bat. It is only 500 and is considered a sniper rifle by the game.

It is a great gun to have at the beginning. Good amount of ammo and lethal headshots.

How to Embed a Search Engine Bar onto a Website

Search Engine

Here are the HTML codes you will need to embed a search engine onto your own website, using some of the most popular examples.

Just copy the required search engine code from below and paste it into the body of your own website where you want it to appear.

If you want to have the mouse cursor already selected on the search bar as the web page loads – choose the code ‘with autofocus’.

If you look carefully, you will find the only difference between them is whether autofocus=”” appears in the code or not

To alter the length of the search bar just change the size=”13″ part of the code into a different number of your choice.

For example: size=”50″ will make it much longer.

For Ebay and Amazon, I have provided United Kingdom and American examples for each.

The only difference between the d...

While the Alt key is pressed, type the sequence of numbers (on the numeric keypad) from the Alt code in the table below.
