My PC died

I didn’t really want to be asking for donations so soon, but my PC has completely died. I’m stuck with an ancient laptop as my only computing device at the moment.

If anyone has a few euros to spare to help me replace it, I’d appreciate it. Of course, no need to help if you don’t want to.

Thanks for your time.

EDIT: Since apparently we have some cynics in our midst, to be clear, my motherboard is fried. My machine is 8 years old. The main parts are no longer in good condition. The RAM doesn’t always work properly. I have chosen to replace the core parts (mobo, CPU, and RAM) because I can’t keep dragging the old one around any more. I will be using parts from the old one which are still in good condition, and I have already paid for replacements by getting a small loan. This post was put here simply because I’d like to pay that loan back.

The situation is fine and if literally no one wants to help, that’s fine too.

    Ohh of course your PC is dead.
    And what is the evidence?
    What component is dead? And why? VGA? RAM? CPU? Motherboard? Power Supply?

    The internet is a very unsafe place with this “support me” entries.

    “My PC is dead i need donation for buy a new 2080TI because the Metro Exodus is not running 60FPS only 45 with my old 1080TI.”

    You no have own payment from your workplace?

    And why donate? For nothing?
    You not post any new mods.
    The last is 2018 December .

    No more new poses, no more new mods, no more Aether Suit update?

    I think Halo, this is your webpage’s end.

      Well, to address the only relevant part of your response, the motherboard is fried, and since it’s the heart of the machine, and replacing it would mean buying an 8 year old motherboard, I chose to buy a new machine. I asked for help to try to mitigate the costs of the new machine, because I don’t have very much money.

      I also said no one had to help if they didn’t want to. Clearly you don’t want to.

      I’ve also been releasing massive piles of mods on Christmas day for like 3 years now, without posting anything in between. My site hasn’t ended any of the previous years. Each Christmas, I’ve released an Aether Suite update, poser update, and new clothing mods. You do realise December 2018 was only 3 months ago?

      But of course, this must be my webpage’s end.

      Responses like yours are what make people not want to bother modding any more.

        Dear Mr. Halo Mods, dont pay attention to comments like those, geez the internet its full of sad sack of trolls. Maybe its not too much, i know It will not reach you for a new mobo, but here, let invite you a cup of coffe :3 thanks for keep your site on!

      This comment is very rude. Perhaps it is a language translation issue but you sound very ungrateful for the hard work that Halo has put into creating mods and given to the community for FREE. Don’t want to donate? Fine. But keep your uninformed childish comments to yourself.

      dude, if you are stingy just dont donate and keep moving

    If you need money, create a Patreon or make Paywall mods like the other user who need money.
    Many ways available on Internet for making money.
    I know the easiest way the “pls donate” thing.
    You write a post and its done.

    “only 3 months”
    And 3 months is short time?

    Loverslab is have Patreon and 2000$+ / month…

    I think not i m the one who think this “pls donate” post is nothing.
    And the most user donate only 1$-5$.
    A simple PC part is 200-500$.

    Its time to upgrade your internet activity Halo before your community is collapse.

    I like your mods, but if i not see activity on your Blog, i not think i need to donate for your new PC.

      That’s fine. You don’t have to help me. This is a post for people who are willing. I just don’t have the time to make as many mods as I used to.

      I also don’t want to make a patreon and paywall my mods because I don’t want to force people to pay for my mods.

      I make a “please help” post precisely because I’m only asking people who can afford to and are willing to help out. A lot of people can’t afford to pay towards 50 patreons just to get mods. I don’t want to empty anyone’s pockets.

    It’s too bad that the only comments are attacking you for asking for some change from those who can. I don’t know about the other guy, but I’ve used your mods for the vast majority of my 4500+ hours in Skyrim, and I think that justifies sending you a little cash in your time of need.

      Thanks. I appreciate both the sentiment and the action.

    What kind of comment is the first..
    How would you even mod now that your pc is dead. “Yea here have a hastily put together halos poser update so I can have donations”. No that wouldn’t be your quality standard.

    Apart from that I’m very sorry to hear it died. I donated at christmas time and I would again now but I’m really tight on money right now. I hope you’ll get a few donations to your paypal anyway. I worry about my pc dying a lot too, because it’s a lot of money for a new one.

      It’s the thought that counts. I appreciate it.

    PS ignore that asshole, he doesnt know how much time and effort goes into making these
    and best of luck for the future mate

      No worries. I’ve already got my new rig up and running. It was already purchased when I made the post. The donation request is literally just to try and fill some of the massive hole in my pocket that buying a new PC left. I really couldn’t afford to dip into those savings. Luckily, I’ve had a few donations, which helped me pay for roughly one part of the machine.

      • ImNotAnIdiot April 21, 2019 5:22 am  Reply

        So you already have your new PC when you post you Donation post… :O
        And here you regret yourself… XD
        This is why i write the Internet is unsafe place.
        You “forget” write in your post “i already have the new PC”.
        And why?
        Because when you write the truth nobody donate for you.
        You have the new PC why donate?

        Wait wait.. you have new awesome PC but not release new mods?
        No have time? Or with this supet PC finally you play true games?

        Halo Halo… i think you are not a straight man.

        • Halofarm April 21, 2019 7:20 am  Reply

          As it says up in the post edit, I had to get a small loan. I also had to use my personal savings. My savings are gone, and I owe money .I think you don’t seem to understand how money works.

          It’s also not “an awesome PC”. It’s a budget PC, just like the last one. The GPU and PSU are reused from my old PC because I couldn’t afford new ones, and all the new parts are on the cheaper side.

          Go ahead and believe your weird conspiracy theory though, if it helps you sleep at night.

          Perhaps you should channel some of that energy into making your own mods instead of trying to make me out to be some kind of villain for having a life to deal with. Also, upgrade your reading comprehension. My donation button specifically says “donations are not payment for modding”. They come from kind people who want to help a guy in need.

          • ImNotAnIdiot April 28, 2019 6:21 pm 

            I already have mods and my income is 200-400$ / month from my mods.
            And i never write pls support me posts.

            May coming and no new mod from you…

            And the funniest thing i read in this comments, one user “apologizes” because not able to sending donation for you. XD OMG.
            And if send.. send 1$…

            And Gregory Thomas is coming here just advertising his Blog. xD

        • Halofarm April 29, 2019 7:35 am  Reply

          I mean, if you’re making hundreds of dollars per month on mods, you don’t really NEED to ask for support, do you? The donations I get each year don’t even cover the full cost of running the server this site and all my mods are hosted on. That’s why I ask for them, usually once a year.

          I’ve never made a profit on this blog. The only time I’ve made “please support me posts” is when I actually needed money for something, like the server, or a part because my PC blew up.

          Also, I work on mods all year round. I just work on lots of them at once, which is why they come in a big pile at Christmas. If you stop rambling for five minutes and look at the actual volume of mods I released at Christmas, you’d notice I released more mods than most modders release in a year, in one day. Your ideas about regular content delivery are based entirely on the idea that your regular modding income depends on regular mod releases.

          Put simply, mine doesn’t, because I don’t have a regular modding income.

          Anyway, this will be my last reply to you, because you’re just being antagonistic for the sake of it now. Feel free to keep commenting though. I appreciate your time.

    Hello bud.
    My name is Gregory.
    I’m sorry that your laptop broke. If I could, I would send you a secret 1 million dollars.
    Dear Lord I pray that not only will your laptop be fixed again, but it will be 1,000 times better than the last. That whatever was lost will be recovered or replaced with better memories, and that you’ll be surrounded by good friends that will help you with your future ambitions. :) In Jesus name, amen.

    P.S. Be sure to check out my blog for inspirational poems I made at Cascadialegends.wordpress.com

    @ImNotAnIdiot

    I wasn’t even reading your comments until just now,
    I have over 300 followers for my blog, I don’t need the help nor am I desperate, nor was I advertising, bub.
    With that being said, I’m actually a regular here on the aether suite, and on the nexus mods, so this is just me just responding to halo like I usually do, lmfao.

    I feel like you’re just some disgruntle dude that is also the same thing, a regular that uses halo, and are kinda offput by Halo’s sometimes standoffish personality (like not providing the names for outfits that we can find on the nexus)

    Or perhaps because he doesn’t do personal requests maybe as often as you’d like, hey those are understandable things to get angry at.

    But it is what it is, perhaps you should just forget about it, you already know that you don’t have to reply if you don’t trust a comment, so you’re just trying to kick your enemies while they’re done…It hasn’t helped, has it? Halo will get the money for his laptop, and continue to make mods, and kinda do his own thing and still have much support.
    So. Stop checking these messages for a reply back to your comments as I’m sure you’re like doing every 2 or three days. ;)

    @halo
    don’t worry about that dude. He’s an idiot. My advice though it may not be your style, and I frown against it because it seems harsh, is to work out a ‘comment awaiting approval’ mechanic. That way you can throw stray user’s replies in the trash when they seem hostile.
    Just a friendly IT suggestion.

      I already have a system like that. I use it to filter spam. Everyone’s welcome to their opinion though, so “ImNotAnIdiot” is also welcome to his. I personally approved his comments.

      I don’t mind angry people. Everyone deserves a voice.

      @Gregory Thomas

      “comment awaiting approval”

      So.. the solution is if you not like someone’s comment not aprove his comment or ban him.
      Yes this is the true Nexus like community.
      If you not like my content i ban you!
      This is ridiculous Thomas..
      This is why the modding community is dead because too many uppish modders available.

      300 followers is many? I think not.

      I m a “hostile”?? :D
      Why? Because i write my thoughts? :D

      So, Thomas, you are the typical uppish idiot. :)

        Don’t you have a bridge to crawl under? You should probably just keep your hostile thoughts to yourself or find a good counselor to help you with your anger issues.

    Drama notwithstanding, Ive used your stuff for years Halo and very much appreciate the time you put in. I threw some Euros your way this morning.
    Question for you though, Nisetenaka some time ago mentioned he had sent some new renditions he was working on to you. Is that still in the works or has that been cancelled? Just curious if I should keep looking around for it.

    • Halofarm May 9, 2019 4:52 pm  Reply

      Nise hasn’t contacted me in a very long time. The stuff he sent me has already been released. He vanished before ever sending me anything else. Someone would have to remind him to contact me if they want to see any further motion on that.

        i was following nise in tumblr and now im following in twitter. i came to ask how your pc was doing, im glad to read you got one right. whats the problem with imnotanidiot :S why being so rude :S

          I’m sure he has his reasons. It’s not really a problem. Thanks for your concern.
