Any Javascript gurus want to look at this question for me? gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/80412/… :)
 
@bazola well, I don't know, but I think that null you said about far value, means it couldn't pick any object
aka the ray moves to infinity
 
very interesting, thank you
watching it in the debugger, when the raycaster initializes it has a far value of -100, then when i do the picking ray it nulls it out. I wonder if pickingRay is really necessary
 
12:30 AM
Hey guys
 
hey there
 
12:46 AM
How's it going?
 
well, I've been playing lots of dota lately
and that's all
 
Nice... I was just playing the destiny beta
 
1:20 AM
@IcyDefiance I don't think you can reuse a win8 install disc
 
should be able to, unless the key is on the disc, in which case I think there's just a config file that can be changed to remove it
even if the key is on the disc, you can just reuse it as long as the key is valid
 
Well I just read a super user post which said thst you had to remove the previous OS to be able to redo
 
that knowledge comes more from win7... but I doubt it's changed
well, yeah, that's called formatting
 
No no
 
that has nothing to do with the install disc, other than that you can format as part of the install process
 
1:23 AM
I messed that up
Fuck how the hell do I explain this...
@IcyDefiance
 
1. That limit applies to the key, not the disc
2. Reinstalling it on the same computer is not the same as installing it on a different computer
3. The limit to one computer only applies to OEM keys, I think. That's probably what you're dealing with here, but it's worth noting anyway.
4. DRM is stupid and it may prevent you from reinstalling on the same computer anyway. A lot of people get angry at this and just crack the OS instead because by the terms of the license they should be able to reinstall on the same computer.
 
Looks like pirating.
Or Linux
 
1:54 AM
best indieroyale ever?

@IcyDefiance so how do you use your mega? im trying to figure out a workflow
i basically want to use it to archive past projects and data, like sync folders until complete? and then unsync and remove from local machine
 
I just use it for programming stuff. I put the whole visual studio project in the mega folder on my computer and work from there. The client takes care of the uploading for me.
kinda sucks that it uploads the binary folder too, but meh I have the bandwidth and it's too much work to compile to a different location
I'm not too sure the program will let you delete from the local machine without also deleting from their server... the files will still be in the rubbish bin or whatever it's called, but probably not permanently.
 
Joe
2:31 AM
hmm
ill have to figure out a way to do that
 
Myah
 
Joe
whats up hasher
this is for you
 
Playing around with Linux
OH BOY
A dammit, won't be able to play it for a while
Not on a solid OS as of now and don't have the web player
 
Joe
ahh
well its not finished anyway
but its progress
"much awesome"
 
Nice
Played DayZ since last time we played?
 
Joe
2:33 AM
nah im still there in the same logout
what was that? cherno?
if that character dies i practically need to buy a tombstone
just to memorialize it
because ill never get that geared again
 
Yeah sam
 
Joe
ooof whats the free soundboard
i lost it
someone shared it for the game jam
 
Damn, I have it somewhere
Give me a minute, trying to download chrome for linux
 
Joe
no problem
its just something weird abreviate letters and numbers
 
I can't figure out how to linux
 
2:42 AM
what distro?
 
xubunut
I just suck at everything so bad
Can't even figure out how to download chrome
Because apparantly every time I download it downloads amd64 instead of x86
 
so kpackagekit should be your package manager: userbase.kde.org/KPackageKit
that what you're using?
 
It has nothing to do with the actual files, it's just that google doesn't want to give me the write architecture
 
screw google, use the package manager to download it
unless it's not in the package mangaer
 
@IcyDefiance I can't even find the 'download' on this page
 
2:49 AM
nooo it should be on your computer. one forum says "in the computer menu", though I'm not sure if that's still the same
 
lol it's not
 
how about Muon package manager?
 
3:03 AM
Idk
Back on windows now
Ain't nobody got time for that
 
lol, the first 4 times I tried linux ended the same way
 
I'll try again when I have more time and patience
 
well, 2 of those attempts went great until I corrupted something and it wouldn't boot anymore...
 
Right now I just want to work on Snow Cone Sim 2014
 
3:26 AM
@IcyDefiance I have an XNA question for you.
When you do SpriteBatch.Draw(Texture, Rectangle, Color); what should I use for Color?
Color.White?
 
normally, yes
it's a color mask. if you do white, it won't change the color at all.
 
Alright, that's what I thought.
That was the only one that seemed to work
 
if you do (0, 1, 1, 1) it'll ignore the red channel of your sprite, giving it a blue-green tint
 
Yeah, that makes sense.
 
it's pretty cool, because I can draw a rectangle or line of any size or color with just a single white pixel for a texture
 
3:29 AM
All of our actors broke their arms, no we don't have a cast.
 
Nice
 
3:49 AM
My new computer is coming alive! :D
How funky. Firefox Sync automatically installed adblock plus for me
 
4:11 AM
It even installed the GreaseMonkey fire script automatically :O
Impressive
