Entering the realm of Fallout 4

Last updated on September 24th, 2019 at 11:21 pm

I’m playing Fallout 4 since June 2019, at the beginning on my 9 year old computer, and later on my new computer which I bought at the end of July. In the middle of August, I got sciatica, so that I couldn’t play for some weeks. The pain isn’t gone entirely. I stopped doing my practices as I catched a serious cold this month. I’m feeling reasonably well again now and will continue my practices this weekend.

Regarding the game, I’m siding with the Institute and realized after reading too much … Read more

Selene’s Shadow Realm uses SSL now!

SSL stands for Secure Sockets Layer and establishes encrypted connections (https protocol) between the server of my site and your browser. The padlock symbol on the left site of your address bar shows you that the connection is safe.

After I bought the SSL option, I needed to adjust some links which I missed and deactivate a plugin that interfered with the https protocol. The developer tools of the browser where quite helpful to find the mixed content that still uses the unencrypted http protocol.

Using the https protocol is not only secure but can also have a positive effect … Read more

Security breach in “WP GDPR Compliance” opens doors for hackers

If you are a WordPress user as well and use an older version of the plugin, then there is a high risk that your site will be hacked. I experienced this myself and I write this little article to warn you. Please update “WP GDPR Compliance” to the recent version (as a site note: the same applies to WooCommerce).

But if your site has already been hacked because of this security breach:

  1. Go to your WordPress database via PhpMyAdmin (or similar)
  2. Click on the name of the database to load all tables
  3. Choose wp_users
  4. Look for the user entry

I’m still alive

Real life always gets me. I’ve got a new apprenticeship at a little publishing house which is really nice. If I have enough motivation for my private projects, it would put the cherry on the cake. But some “personal difficulties” let the flow dry in the last couple of months. We all have crosses to bear.

But I know when I have enough breaks from the private projects, I have enough energy to continue the work on them until they are done. It will take longer though, but I rather prefer finishing them than burning out completely and never finish … Read more

The Abyss Demon project in the course of years (2009 – 2018)

Last updated on October 19th, 2019 at 10:47 am

aka “The many faces of Azareth”

Azareth was the first Abyss Demon character and his face has changed a lot during the development process of my Abyss Demon mod.

 

2009

In November 2009, it began with the idea of making a race out of World of Warcraft’s Illidan; a race with big horns, wings and greenish tattoos. The horns were really large at first and the black wings a placeholder. Shortly after that the horns got smaller and the wings a new shape with a color matching the body.

The translation project

The “translation project” is a series of mods which will finally get their English translation.

While I was rebuilding my website I noticed that some of my older mods haven’t got their English translation yet. That’s why I started the “translation project”.

Current status:
Hidden Hideout: translated and released (May 9, 2018)
Maniac Race: translated and released (June 16, 2018)
Mysterious Elves: not translated yet
Armor of Honor – female version: not translated yet
Fantasy and Unique Eyes: not translated yet
Deathsmiles Clothes for HGEC: not translated yet… Read more

Arcane University flames fix

The flames in the Arcane University are gone? This fix makes them visible again. The issue mostly happens when the flames were disabled by another mod. I have experienced this myself.

So I wrote a script which enables them at game start.

Just put the Esp into your Oblivion Data folder, start the Oblivion launcher, go to Data Files and activate it. Load your savegame, wait a few seconds until a message appears, save your game and exit. You can deactivate the plugin now. The next time when you load this new savegame, the flames should still be visible.

Current plans for the future (June 2018)

Last updated on June 16th, 2018 at 11:01 pm

I’m not always sticking to my plans but I do my best. I talked about my plans for the future some months ago on the Nexus forums. They changed a bit. So my current plans for the future are:

  • translating some of my older mods which haven’t got an English translation yet (for example Maniac Race and Mysterious Elves); Edit (June 16, 2018): a complete list of the affected mods can now be found here
  • finally releasing the English version of the new version of Abyss Demon

A new home for my homepage

Last updated on June 16th, 2018 at 09:34 am

Edit (June 16, 2018)

This is the first post I’m writing on the new server. All previous posts were written offline on my netbook’s localhost using XAMPP. You maybe have noticed that there’s still the old version of Selene’s Shadow Realm out there which is hosted on Jimdo. I will keep the old version online for archiving purposes hoping it will not be deleted by Jimdo again. Yes, you have read correctly. My site was nuked without any forewarning. The only thing left was an error message stating that the … Read more
