Transfer the android files over WiFi

- Thursday, June 11, 2015 No Comments

So everybody knows that wires are irritating. And using wires in the mobile phones are more irritating. So there are times when we have to transfer files between our computer and other devices. So for this the most obvious choice is data cable. But it irritating to use the cable, seriously. If you are not irritated then you must be special one, because I do.

So in this case we can utilize the most basic feature of our android phone i.e. WiFi. For the transmission of file over WiFi simple method called Port Forwarding is used. So I am not writing a lecture here so just understand that port forwarding is used for this. There are apps that allows us to transfer the files over WiFi and I am not talking about simple file sending and receiving, I am talking about browsing.

WiFi File Explorer is a app that I highly recommend to all. This is a simple app. All we got to do is connect to WiFi, run the app's server and done. I have described the steps below.

Installation

All we need is app installed in the android phone. Now don't tell me you don't know how to do it.


Usage

After installing we need to do is connect to WiFi and run the app in our phone. After that the app will start serving then we can put the given address to any java functioning browser of any device in the same LAN or WLAN.

Screenshots:

In phone



Just put the address as shown by the app

Browse

Note: SO this is port forwarding therefore copying file to the mobile is upload and copying file from the mobile is download. You'll figure out once you use it.

GTA V mission 'Caida Libre' crash fix

- Wednesday, June 10, 2015 No Comments

Okay I heard about it and I feared that it would happen to me also. It did happen but I quickly found the fix for it that worked for me.

When and where 

The problem is very common and it is in all the distribution of GTA V pc i.e. retail and cracked(pirated). Missions like Blitz Play, Caida Libre and many other are affected by it. SO the problem seems to occur in two situations, character switching and use of weapon from the vehicle. SO in my case it was the last character switching to Franklin from Michael after Trevor kidnaps the wife of Martin and brings her to Michael. The character switch is automatic and there's no chance to save the game. So after some experiments I found a working solution.


Solution  

Go to  Settings>Graphics and then change the DirectX Version to 10.
10.1 or 11 doesn't seem to do the job.


So this solved the problem for me in this Caida Libre mission. I think this also fixes the game crash of Blitz Play.

GTA V social club error code 17 fix

- Friday, May 29, 2015 No Comments

So yesterday when I fired up the GTA V(RG Mechanics repack) it was stuck in the loadscreen. All I got was "Initializing Social Club" and after a minute or two I got "social club error error code: 17". SO this wasn't good that's why I searched the internet and found the solution for it.


The problem starts after the notification that "Social Club UI has stopped working" or similar to this:


The main cause of the problem is our OS. I was running on Windows 7 Ultimate built 7600. SO I my service pack was 0.
So I simply installed new OS(Windows 7 New Generation: Win 7 SP1) which I downloaded a long time ago. I just installed it by making new partition. If you do not intend to install new OS then you can just try upgrading your existing OS to SP1. Read this article.

If you have problem of "GTA V Launcher stopped working" then just install Social Club or install the latest patch. Anyway ultimately you have to install Social Club.


The Pirate Back back to life almost immediately

- Tuesday, May 26, 2015 No Comments

A very popular torrent search engine The Pirate Bay's main domains thepiratebay.se and piratebay.se was seized by the Stockholm District Court. But as soon as the the both the domains were seized the search engine was live almost immediately in six new domains.

Now the old domain thepiratebay.se and piratebay.se redirects to the new domain. The TLD domains also redirect to these domains.

 
The site has also changed its official homepage logo to the new one which has the indication of all six domains owned by the site. The Pirate Bay founder has appealed in the court for the decision of seizure. You can read more about it here:

Rest the taste of site remains the same. With usual torrent search this site seems completely okay. The Pirate Bay has major impact upon the piracy of Video Games, Songs, Softwares, etc and it offers this services for free.

Block the internet connection of any program using firewall

- Monday, May 25, 2015 No Comments




Having slow internet or low bandwidth is very painful as background programs eat our bandwidth and make our internet package finish fast or internet run slow. Background programs like antivirus uses available internet for checking updates or automatic update. This is normal for broadband unlimited computers but users like mobile broadband, limited connection, DSL, dial-up, etc. This article is about stopping such internet eater programs manually. Most of the programs have option for this but still they use some. I already had written a article "Increase your internet speed by 20%" for releasing reserved bandwidth Windows. Well this method doesn't require any software as windows firewall does this. 

There's a much much easier to block the internet use of a program by using a software called NetBalancer, read this post.

1. First open Windows Firewall. Just search it in start(for win 7&8). Turn it on if it is off.
2. Now click on Advance settings.
3. Now click on Outbound Rules then select New Rule... from left panel.


4. Now select Program as rule type then in step-2 browse your program.


















5. Now give the name* and description(opt.)


6. Now click on next then keep all default then finish it.

7.Now you can see your program in the list.

8. If you want to cancel the connection ban then just click on the blacklisted program from the list then on bottom left select delete then confirm it.

Easy ways to remap a keyboard

- Friday, May 22, 2015 No Comments


Some people are asking questions that their keyboard's specific key has stopped working and want to remap the keyboard rather than replacing the keyboard. Most of them get their solutions by using 3rd party software and it is good because custom registry editing may create problem if used improperly and most of the people don't often get the understandable solution for custom registry mapping. SO, I have decided to write a article about remapping the keyboard keys from both methods i.e. manual registry editing and by using 3rd party applications. This is for windows.

MANUAL REGISTRY EDITING

Okay as I already said that this method require us to create our custom registry. So we have to start with opening windows registry editor. 

i) Just open regedit from start search or run cmd.
ii) Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Keyboard Layout.
iii) If you have never mapped any keys then there won't be any registry in which case we have to create a new registry.
iv) It's easy to create a new registry. Just right-click on Keyboard Layout and then select New/Binary Value.
 v) Name it Scancode Map and then in the data enter the binary value as I have explained below:

Mapping example

The value data above is: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 03 00 00 00 3A 00 2A 00 46 00 0F 00 00 00 00 00 
Above I have highlighted the important things involved in the value, I have remapped 2 keys so, in the data there are 4 scan codes, 2 of each mapping. The code usually contains only 2 character but it uses 4 bits so to make it 4 bit we should fulfill the requirement by adding 0 as the spaces. Eg: 3A00 is used but the scancode of caps lock is only 3A. Now more description of value used  :

  • 03 is no. of keys to be remapped. If only one mapping is to be done then this value is 02 and as you go on increasing the mapping, it also increases.  
  • 3A 00 is the code of the key to which we are going to remap. 3A is the scancode of the Caps Lock.
  • 2A 00 is the code of the key which we are going to remap. It is the scancode of Left Shift It is the key to be remapped by the key scancode at the left side. So, here LShift(2A) is going to be mapped as Caps Lock(3A). 
  • Same thing again, 46 00 is Scroll Lock and it is to be mapped in 0F 00(TAB).
  • The other remaining zeros are just spaces.
NOW TO TAKE EFFECT, WE JUST HAVE TO RESTART OR LOG-OFF. 3rd party applications do same thing and now we can also see this setting in other remapping software without even using those software.

BELOW IS THE TABLE OF THE SCAN CODES OF ALL THE KEYBOARD KEYS. HTML ADOPTED FROM: http://www.ee.bgu.ac.il/~microlab/MicroLab/Labs/ScanCodes.htm:
