      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Guitar Hero

Recommended Posts

Am I the only geek that loves this game. I'm a musician and thought it would be the dumbest game ever. I got talked into getting Guitar Hero II, played and and went out and got the first one. Then I got the Encore and today had to go out at lunch and get III. Anyone else think this is one of the coolest games to play? Can't wait for Band Hero.

I've lost plenty of sleep as well with GHII

will be getting GHIII tomorrow probably. The song list is really good for III and should be a fun time.

I had the pleasure of sitting next to a developer of the GH series during a poker game one time.

Sure was fun to hear some of the inside stuff.

He told me of all the games he's been involved with though that COD4 has him the most excited.

I love Guitar Hero as well. I've never owned a gaming system of any kind, but I bought a used PS2 just so I could play guitar hero II. We have the '80's edition also.

rock on

After owning GH II and trying to master these songs, you ALOT more respect for the people who can play for real.

I am 32 and felt like an old man at Wal-Mart saturday night at midnight getting mine. I got a Wii and was only the second one getting the Wii version at about 12:15, I was a little surprised at that. Bad thing, I stink at it, but my wife is awesome at it. I asked her the other night where she'd played it before, and she said she hadn't, I was amazed. She beat Tom Morello in the guitar duel the first time.

I've heard from actual guitar players that this game is harder than playing a real guitar. LOL!

We have the GHII for PS2. Played it through the medium mode. Anything higher is just too difficult for me. Just can't seem to get down using 5 buttons... 4 is challenging enough. With 5, I always seem to lose my finger placement and screw up the majority of the song.

It is harder than a normal guitar. The thing is it doesn't always go exactly with the feel and some of the chord changes do always make sense. Still real fun though. I got through the first three in medium last night and beet my first challange. Way fun.

I picked up GH3 for the 360. First time ever playing it, there is the initial fun factor but like the wii I anticipate boredom with it. Callof Duty 4 has me excited as the beta was great.

I have beaten all the songs on easy thus far including all the songs that you need to purchase. The deul with the devil was pretty darn challengig, about 10 tries into it I was ready to throw the guitar thru the TV.

My favorites on it are, Slipknot, Metallica, and Rage against the machine. but most of the songs are really good.

Let me be the first actual guitar player to say that Guitar Hero is definetly NOT harder to learn that a real guitar.

I got GHIII on Sunday morning. It has some great songs and some great improvements over the previous versions. I haven't had a chance to try multiplayer yet, but from the boss battles I think it will be a lot of fun. I got the wireless version for PS2 and sometimes I wonder how accurate it is. I'm considering taking it back if I can for the wired version. As for my progress, I cannot beat Devil Went Down to Georgia on hard and I'm stuck on Holiday in Cambodia on expert.

so yeah.....they bumped up the difficulty on this a bit for "medium". I could probably squeak by with three stars on "hard".

Anyone with 5 stars on "expert" has way too much time on their hands....that is just insane.

Love the playlist, in fact I might pick up the soundtrack at BB to add to my MP3 playlist.

If anyone want's to "duel" online, let me know

I picked it up the other day. I got stuck on the Morello duel (on medium). Couldnt beat him in 4 tries. My 8 year old daughter beat him 2 out of 3 tries. The other night I beat slash, but it took a few 'restarts'. wink.gif

There is a definate fine line for me. I do very well between 3-5 beers, anymore and I start to mess up a lot. Sweet Child of Mine is my favorite song but don't try to impress anyone playing it on hard when you're in the bag!!!!

I hear ya, wasn't sure if it was just me that it was harder on. Would love to play you online. I haven't done that before with GH and have a PS2, is that what you have, does it matter?

I have on the 360, so no that won't work.

Just beat "Lou" on Med. First try.

Two nights and about 6 hrs........probably the quickest I've ever beat a game. I guess it's different catergory, but I would like to see another couple hours worth.

BTW, go to youtube and search "Raining Blood Expert" that is just totally insane.

Through the Fire and the Flames is another crazy one to see on expert. I can stumble through it on medium, but not on hard. I haven't even bothered with expert yet. It's a fun song to play though, provided you don't cramp up before finishing it.

What's the point? When I want to get that guitar hero feeling I go down into the basement, fire up the crown poweramps and some EAW monitors, warm up the Mackie, take out the stratocaster, plug it into the Marshall, let the tubes warm up for a bit, hit the play button on the DAT deck, hit that first cord and jam along. The feeling of a a set of good powertubes pushing 8 12" greenbacks still gives me goosebumbs. For a little while I kid myself that I am Jimi, I am god, I am the guitar hero.

When I want to make money I play bass laugh.gif

The point for those that can't play guitar or bass is to get a little bit of the rush you feel. Not all of us have the time to learn or money to buy the equipment. I want to learn to play soon, maybe this summer. But until then, I've got Guitar Hero.

    • Yeah baby!!!  Huge congrats to both of you.  Look at that smile!  Great work dad and great work son!!!
    • On Saturday my boy got his first crack at a bird.  We walked in and had nothing close, but must have been in their way to whatever they were going to.  An hour later and he had his first turkey. 18.3 lb. 1/2 inch spurs 9 3/4 inch beard  HUGE smiles Proud dad   The bird gave us a heck of a show and came within a step of brushing the blind.   We also made it back to cook up Maple Syrup with the rest of the crew at thew cabin.
    • Well hopefully today is the last of the Fernando Rodney experiment. 
    • that is certainly a dream!  
    • Atta way, Cheetah!  Congrats!!!
    •   WTG Cheetah!  They still give you two tags each out there?  Still hunting, or coming home early?     Stick with it PFunk, once that hens slips away he'll come back lookin' for some plastic love.  
    • And on a day where i am kicking myself for not bringing the DSLR, why wouldn’t a nice bearded hen come by just outside the window...
    • Working on punching dad’s archery tag and had this guy hang up at 40 yards for a good half hour outside of his comfortable shooting range. Had 4 jakes on the decoys earlier trying to breed them but the tom stayed out at about 60 with a live hen. Fooling the big boys with the bow is proving to be a challenge. Wow is it fun and frustrating as hell at the same time. 
    • Brother and I doubled this morning in my shortest Black Hills public land hunt ever...   3 hours from time of leaving the car.      Parked the car and had turkeys gobbling on the public side of the road right where we planned to go.   Two gobblers dropped down into the field in front of us at first light and bred a hen right there.   They almost came in to us once the hen left them, but changed their mind and walked over the hill to the rest of the flock.  After a couple hours of cat and mouse we managed to get in front of them and after one close call with a blow down in the way had a second chance and were able to take both gobblers at the same time.   37yd shot for my brother, and 44yd shot for mine.   
    •   I see a pattern I hate to see from any player....Granlund in the last 2 seasons combined: April 2G/3A   Playoff Totals last 2 yrs combined 1G/4A    Those are terrible end of year stats for any player...I just think he is too small and plays even smaller...when the going gets tough he disappears..he probably is just worn out come late in the season and we need players who can step up when we need them most.
