[Riverstream Rhapsody] I await your urgent communication.

From the desk of MR. George Dao,
The Senior Auditor In Charge
FOREIGN REMITTANCE UNIT,
BANK OF AFRICA (BOA).
Ouagadougou Burkina Faso.
 
Dear Friend,
 
Good Day,
 
I know that this message will come to you as a surprise. I am Mr. George Dao, "THE CHIEF AUDITOR IN CHARGE OF THE FOREIGN REMITTANCE UNIT here in Ouagadougou Burkina Faso. I hope that you will not expose or betray this trust that I am about to repose on you for the mutual benefit of our both families.
 
I need your urgent assistance in transferring the sum of (us$14.3m) Fourteen Million Three Hundred Thousand Dollars to your account within 14 banking days. This money has been dormant for years in our bank without claim. I want the bank to release / transfer the money to your account over there as the nearest person to the deceased customer, the owner (the deceased customer) of the account died along with his supposed next of kin in an air crash since 2003.
 
I don't want the money to go into our bank treasury as an abandoned fund. So this is the reason why I contacted you so that the bank can release / transfer the money to you as the next of kin to the deceased customer.
 
Please i would like you to keep this proposal as a top secret and delete it if you are not interested. Upon receipt of your reply, I will give you full details on how the business will be executed and also note that you will have 45% of the above mentioned sum if you agree to handle this business with me and 55% will be for me.
 
I await your urgent communication.
 
Best regards,
 
Mr. George Dao.

[FireHeart Saga] RPG Maker VX Storage and Bank System v1.2 byDeriru

Here's the Script for Storage & Bank System for
RPG Maker VX. Credit Deriru if you use this system.
Visit the forum rpgmakervx.net for more updates and bug fixes.

Retrieved from:
http://www.rpgmakerid.com/rmvx-f22/askbank-event-t2154.htm#37186
Just copy-paste the script below in the game.

#===============================================================================
# Deriru's Simple Storage System v1.2
# by Deriru
#
# What does this do?:
# -It creates an storage system where you can store your items and gold, like
# in a warehouse.
#
# How to use:
# -Customize the script according to the options below.
# -Call the storage system with:
# $scene = Scene_StorageSystem.new
# -To unlock more spaces for your storage, use the following script:
# $game_system.unlock_storages(amount)
# Where amount is the max amount of slots that will be unlocked.
# -To make an item non-storable, insert the NonStorageTag(see SETUP OPTIONS
# BELOW), enclosed in [].
# Example: [NoStore]
# -To get the curreny name (for text display), add #{gVocab} inside.
# Example:
# Withdraw #{gVocab}
# If the currency name is Yen then the result would be: Withdraw Yen
# Version History:
# v1.0:
# -Initial Release

[Rosta Masta!] 1200PS Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport Topspeed:434kmh+



Had a model been especially popular or highly successful in races, Ettore Bugatti's customers often pushed the master to tease out of the engine a few horsepower more for their future car. Bugatti Automobiles SAS had been in a similar situation when their existing customers asked the company to not only design their second model optically differently but also to create a version with a sportier and more extreme driving experience. The result is a car with a uniquely high performance of 1.200 bhp (882 kW) offering experienced drivers a whole new dimension of excitement, with a maximum torque of 1.500 Newton metres and a limited top speed of 415 km/h (to protect the tyres).

The Super Sport is a consequent further development of the classic exclusive 1.001 bhp Bugatti Veyron 16.4, launched in 2005. This model offers a stunning set of specifications, such as the twin clutch gearbox with seven speeds, the extraordinarily precise driving performance in bends and excellent stability when braking and accelerating.

Continuous work in extreme performance ranges lead to constantly new conclusions, which enabled the engineers at Bugatti to develop the Veyron into a direction in which the driver can reach new dimensions. Every modification is designed to produce an even more powerful car for an agile ride. Four enlarged turbochargers and bigger intercoolers have been used to boost the power of the 16-cylinder engine, and the chassis has been extensively redesigned to maintain safety at extreme speed. Thanks to slightly raised main-spring travel, stronger stabilisers, and new shock absorbers with a complex architecture originally developed for racing cars. This gives noticeably more precise control of the wheels and the car as a whole. With lateral acceleration of up to 1.4 G and improved interaction between the tyres and the intelligent all-wheel drive system, the Super Sport offers perfect handling and even more powerful acceleration of 1.500 Newton metres on corner exits.

The body has been fine-tuned to improve aerodynamic efficiency and maintain perfect balance in every situation, while the new fibre structure of the all-carbon monocoque ensures maximum torsion rigidity and passive safety -- at reduced weight. The skin is made entirely of carbon-fibre composites, and the new Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is available in 100 percent clear-lacquered exposed carbon on request.

[Rosta Masta!] Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Top speed 434 km/h



2011 New Bugatti Veyron Super Sport 1200hp W16 434km/h Has several details that Bugatti has included in its press release. Germany According to the newspaper, the Super Sport Veyron weighs 50 pounds less (1,840 kg), and maintains the 0-100 normal model (2.5 seconds), but its acceleration from 0 to 300 km / h down from 16.7 to 15 seconds. Original News: The rumor of the 1,200 hp Veyron exists, and Bugatti has confirmed as they could only do one house from its re stands for excess: with a new land speed record. The creature's name is Super Sport, and represents a new model within the narrow range of the manufacturer of Molsheim. The feat was achieved in the Volkswagen test track in EHRA-Lessien, in the presence of members of the German technical inspection agency TÜV and a representative of Guinness Book of Records, which controlled the two trials conducted by the Bugatti for missile climb the highest speed ever achieved by a production car until 431.072 km / h. Average speed, because in his second sprint, the most fleeting of all the Veyron reached a peak of 434.211 km / h, well above the 425 expected by the Company officially. Until now, the speed record was held by the SSC Ultimate Aero TT, which in September 2007 achieved a speed of 412.28 km / h. Entering the details of the car itself, does not think for one second that this is a unique creation.

The Veyron Super Sport coupe will accompany the conventional and the Grand Sport, enjoying even a very short limited edition dedicated to the first five units, which by the way, have already been sold. Your name will be World Record Edition, and can be distinguished from the rest of the family for a color scheme like the record-breaking of the gallery, in bright orange and carbon fiber exposed. Like all the Veyron, the Super Sport uses a 8.0 L W16 engine, but to express its 1,200 hp Bugatti's engineers have taken drastic measures, replacing its four original turbos for larger ones and doing the same with intercoolers. The chassis has also been modified to not succumb to the effects of a huge torque Nm at 1500 reaches its climax.

This is how it is possible to find new anti-roll bars and reinforced shock absorbers, which will make it possible for progression to the 415 km / h is as safe and controllable as possible. Yes, you read right: the Veyron Super Sport is limited significantly below its potential, but that is because Bugatti wants to keep the tires in one piece and keep the same status to their beloved customers. These buyers can order their cars without paint, leaving bare his new body 100% carbon fiber.

Mansory People must be gnashing their teeth. With this model Bugatti Veyron will officially say goodbye. Adding all the variants, the company has delivered 271 of the 300 units will be produced. The last 30 will belong to the Super Sport version. Now, of course, we can only wait for its official debut to view in person and know all its technical details. Fortunately the time is much closer to what might expect: Bugatti Veyron will present the Super Sport in mid-August, within the famous Concours d'Elegance in Pebble Beach, where by the way, and presented the Grand Sport in 2008 .
