killzone2

Guerrilla striked a deal with gamespot that gave them exclusive Killzone 2 demos to give out to those who preordered the game.  The rest of the people who did not preorder the game will have to wait until release date (2/26).  The only way for those in the America to play the demo early is to make a PSN account that belongs to a  different region.  Simply go to the UK PSN page and make an UK account.  Log into your UK account on the PS3, and the Killzone 2 demo should be on the download list.  Enjoy!

SharePoint Template Error: The template you have chosen is invalid or cannot be found.

/* Posted February 11th, 2009 at 1:17pm [Comments: none]    */

The template you have chosen is invalid or cannot be found. at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequestInternalClass.ApplyWebTemplate(String bstrUrl, String& bstrWebTemplate, Int32& plWebTemplateId)
at Microsoft.SharePoint.Library.SPRequest.ApplyWebTemplate(String bstrUrl, String& bstrWebTemplate, Int32& plWebTemplateId)

How to solve?

Go to CodePlex and find then download STP Inspector. Unzip and then run that app with the STP file you are trying to debug on the server you are trying to deploy the template file to

“STPInspectorWin.exe” will tell you the error. If it says you are missing a feature, export the stp file, then rename it to a CAB file and modfiy the manifest.xml file inside the CAB. Use the STP Inspector to find the missing GUID and do a search then remove that line from the xml manifest.

Repack up all the files in the STP file and the new manifest.
You should google and then use CABARC.EXE. Its a free ms tool. What I did was extract everything in the cab into a folder called test, then go to the command prompt and type in
cabarc N

Example:
C:\stp\BIN>cabarc N test1.cab C:\stp\BIN\Test\*.*

If your Template file is too large, you can change the size limit by using this command:
stsadm -o setproperty -propertyname max-template-document-size -propertyvalue 524288000

To get Pokemasters hyped over Pokemon Platinum which will be released next month for the Nintendo DS, Nintendo has teamed up with Toys R Us to bring a special download event to avid Pokemon fans. For a limited time until Saturday February 14, Pokemon gamers can bring their Pokemon Diamond or Pearl games to their local Toys R Us to take advantage of TRU’s Nintendo Wifi hotspot where the rare grass Pokemon Shaymin can be downloaded for free. Shaymin, Pokemon number 492 on your Pokedex, cannot be obtained any other way. This is the only legit way to get Shaymin into your collection. Shaymin will be gifted in land forme but can be evolved into sky forme when you trade it into Pokemon Platinum. Hurry up because this special download event ends this Saturday.

Nvidia tackles 3D gaming with Geforce 3D Vision

Seeing companies trying to bring 3D imagery from movies into gaming is certainly nothing new.  The last contender in the 3D business was Zalman with their ZM-M220W 3D display.  ZM-M220W depended on Nvidia drivers to reproduce 3D images, and games had to be individually supported for the feature to work.  While it successfully reproduced passive 3D images that may suffice for movies, some kinks that come inherently with passive 3D imagery made the monitor a nightmare for gamers.  The reproduced text, HUD, and crosshairs that gamers depend on were difficult to read and often induced headaches.
