Do I Need to Get a House Survey Done?

There's no law that says you have to get your home surveyed but it's a sensible thing to do and not just for prospective buyers.

If you're about to commit a huge chunk of money to buying a property, you want to be sure that the foundations are sound. Without a proper survey, you won't know if there's any structural damage, or whether it was built with the right regulations. Ultimately you want to make sure that you get what you paid for.

If you get a survey done that gives an honest picture of the condition of your property, you can give it to your real estate agent and increase the chances of a quick sell because most buyers will require a survey be done before they complete. (Although be aware that buyers might still prefer to do their own independent surveys in addition to yours).

If you have a land dispute with your neighbor over a possible encroachment issue, you can get a survey done. This will provide certified proof of land zones etc.

There are many good reasons for getting a survey done on your property. It's almost like an insurance policy against potential future problems. Your new home might look great on the outside but for all your know, needs thousands of dollars of work done to it.
It pays to be prepared.

For marine sharpshooter 2 how do i fix the could not initialize render error? i have direct x 9 and my video card is fine.

Marine Sharpshooter II (PC)

The Bug: Error message "Could Not Initialize the Renderer" means that your video card does not properly support the features required by Marine Sharpshooter II. Specifically, your card does not support Hardware Transform and Lighting functions, often referred to as Hardware T&L. Essentially, it's a portion of the math and setup for the graphics that the video card handles instead of the main CPU.

The Fix: You need at least a nVidia Geforce 2 or ATI Radeon 7200 video card for Marine Sharpshooter II.

I cant instal Flight Simulator X


Your problem most likely has to do with the video card that you have. Make sure your video card supports DirectX 9.0c, has at least 32 MB of RAM and can suport hardware transformation and lighting.

Good luck!

Lens element

Hey baileybear,
An element in a camera lens is one of the many optical lenses that are typically inside a camera lens. What your potential buyer is most likely asking is whether or not the optical lens is scratched. The best way to determine this is to hold the lens up to a bright light source and look directly through it. I hope this helps!

Hardware transformation and lighting

T&L stands for Transform and Lighting. In earlier days, T&L operations were done by the CPU, which limited the game's geometrical complexity quite a bit and limited developers' creativity while creating environments.

A T&L capable card is one that contains two separate engines for Transform and Lighting operations. So the CPU is not stressed with the task of doing T&L operations and developers can create better artificial intelligence and physics using the freed CPU power.

Transform performance determines how complex objects can be and how many can appear in a scene without sacrificing frame rate. Lighting techniques add to a scene's realism by changing the appearance of objects based on light sources.

It's built into the card or not there's no way to upgrade to T&L plus certain games require T&L version like v1.0, v2.0 graphics cards. Best bet is if you can't play a game that supports T&L is to buy a newer card that supports it.

Hope this helps. M~
