Video: What’s New in LR3 beta 2

This comes just in time for me! Can’t wait to try out the new features and kick the tires a bit. LR3 Beta 1 was slightly unstable when doing imports – hopefully they’ve addressed this.

I would love to be able to pre-order Lightroom 3 if I could, and simply have it the moment it’s available as most of the work I do involves Lightroom and Illustrator.

Enjoy the videos, folks!

VMware Fusion 1.1.1 Maps Command Keys to Windows Control Keys

From the official announcement:

The VMware Fusion Team is happy to announce that VMware Fusion 1.1.1 is now available, addressing 15 issues reported by our customers.

VMware Fusion 1.1.1, a free update for current VMware Fusion customers and available in all the languages Fusion currently ships in, also adds a nifty new feature to transparently remap keyboard shortcuts when going back and forth between applications in the virtual machine and the Mac, regardless of what view the virtual machine is in.

For example, VMware Fusion now remaps Command –X from the keyboard to Ctrl-X in the virtual machine whether in Full Screen, Single Window or Unity. The same remapping happens for Command-Z/-C/-V/-P/-A/-F. Previously, VMware Fusion only did this remapping in Unity mode.

What this means to users, is that when copying something from the Mac side to paste into the virtual machine, and vice versa, you no longer have to remember “Is it Ctrl-V, or Command-V to paste here? Which machine am I interacting with?”

The effect is a more integrated blending of the two operating systems, so your Mac and Windows work together seamlessly, where the user only has to remember one set of keyboard shortcuts!

Keyboard remapping can be turned on and off in the VMware Fusion > Preferences dialog.

Call of Duty 4 Enemy Intel Guide

I must say that I’ve been very impressed with the skyrocketing growth of Mahalo lately.

I was going to make a nice big guide with screenshots and the whole 9 yards about all of the Enemy Intels in Call of Duty 4, but it looks like Mahalo beat me to it, but not only that, they have videos of every enemy intel in all of CoD4!

At any rate, click here to follow along with the Call of Duty 4 Enemy Intel videos.

CoD4 Single Player Cheats

Here are some simple single player tips, tricks, and cheats for the Call of Duty 4 single player mode on PC.

Start up Call of Duty 4 single player, go into your options, and make sure that the console is enabled.

Press your ~ (tilde) key anytime you want to enter these codes in – you can keep entering them.
First off, type seta thereisacow "1337", this enables most of the cheats.

In order to pick a level, use spdevmap mapname

Here are some handy console commands that may help you through the game:

  • ufo – you can fly through walls to get places – be careful, this can mess things up a little, and you may get stuck
  • give – gives you an item. If you type give all, you will get all weapons
  • god – god mode!
  • demigod – god mode, but some things still happen like screen shaking and such
  • notarget – you will be invisible to enemies
  • give ammo – instant ammo
  • jump_height – allows you to change the physics in the game – like moon shoes
  • timescale – let’s you play with time – fast or slow
  • cg_LaserForceOn – laser sight, baby!
