Here are some basic guidelines you should
follow when posting for help:1. Coherent / Understandable post (NO AOLSpeak)
Sounds simple, doesn't it? Sadly, it's hard for some to follow. Of course, if your native language isn't English, please indicate that so you aren't flamed out of existence, and paste your native language as well, as we might have a staff member who speaks your native language.
(We can currently scrounge up people who speak the following languages on short notice: English (duh), German, French, Swedish, Danish, Estonian, Hungarian, Czech, Slovenian, Portuguese (Brazil), Japanese, Chinese (mandarin) and Korean.)2. Relevant Information
Help me my anime won't play the file is a mkv. I get no video but audio. plz help!
The above post is pretty much useless to us, as we have no idea what CPU he has, the amount of RAM he has, what file it is, etc. You should generally at least provide simple information like:
Operating system (Windows 98, XP...), CPU, amount of RAM (you can use the CCCP Insurgent to obtain this information)3. Read the FAQ First!
Filename of the file in question
Results of a CCCP Insurgent scan of your system
Which player you are using
If other files of the same type (AVI, MKV etc.) work or not.
The exact text of any error messages.
What things you've already done to try to solve the problem.
And of course, any other knowledge that you think might help us in solving your problem is welcome.
Posting a question that is already answered in the FAQ will get you laughed at. Of course, if you want clarification about something in the FAQ, feel free to post.4. Resources
