VLC Player starts left audio channel in mono

Published by:

VLC version 2.1.3 (latest) seems to start some MP3 files in stereo mode left and you’ll need to manually change it back to stereo every time a new file plays.

There is no answer in the forums : link 1

Here is a solution to fix this annoyance.
Go to TOOLS -> PREFERENCES
There check the “All” under Show Settings (at the bottom left).
Go to Audio
Change “Stereo audio output mode” to Stereo ( The default is “unset” which seems to be the problem ).
Click SAVE to store the settings.

Gameforge Tera Europe Network Error

Published by:

If you have logged into Gameforge’s game Tera in Europe while using a VPN (or a proxy), you’ll get banned. You’ll be unable to connect even if you disable and uninstall the VPN. There is no solution client side, since it’s the server who’s blocking you. You can double check and try to login to your account via the web : http://en.tera.gameforge.com/news/index . You will be greeted with the same error when you try to log in : Network error! – A connection could not be made. Please check your network settings and adjust any proxy or firewall settings.

You will not be able to contact Gameforge’s support, because you can’t login. I found a way to contact them through a different account, but I am still waiting for an answer.

I strongly advice everyone who wants to start playing Tera to use the American servers. These servers are run by En Masse who don’t have this crazy policy.
