12:00 AM
this reminds me
I want to buy the sims complete from ebay
I really love ya guys ya know
you're sorta awesome
now that my only RL friend abandoned me for some chick you're the only guys that talk to me regularly
don't stop please :(
 
Pip
we won't :)
@hasherr says "that's sooo sad!"
he also asks if you've been drinking
 
but I know that feeling
 
yes this beer is awesome
 
Have another
 
Pip
come on in the pub
 
12:10 AM
but damn it has more alcohol in it than my mother's wine
 
Pip
free chat BYOB
 
actually it really has more alcohol in it than my mother's wine
both Chardonnay and Muscat Ottonel have 13.5% alc each
the beer is at 14%
 
hi
 
hi
 
Pip
hey Jovito
 
12:12 AM
@Pip not true
most beers are around 5% alc
 
hi
 
Pip
#SecrtMeet'ng
 
Samichlaus (what I'm drinking now... what I finished drinking) used to be the strongest in a world for a while
 
#SerretMiiting
 
I didn't ban profanity :\
But Byte removed it :\
So, report!
How's the game going
 
12:23 AM
what is that about profanity
 
That was at Icy :\
 
oh alright
@Noctrine tried lego hp
was a bit disappointed there is no voice acting but it seems interesting-ish so far
 
Pip
@Noctrine well, planning with hash in a call atm
 
2010 :\
 
@Noctrine well, planning with pip in a call atm
 
12:25 AM
it's not 100% faithful to the books from what I see
at least not in the exact details
@Noctrine what's with the year
games had voice acting since...
well not since Zork
but you get it
 
Sorry, trying to eat and type
What I meant is, it's a bit old so it doesn't have the same quality as the newer ones do
Was kinda early in the Lego "X" games
 
do the other years have voice acting?
years 5-7 I mean
this is years 1-4
 
Didn't play that one :\
 
I'll see if I can get that far
bought them both so it would be a waste to not at least try to go through with them
they do seem enjoyable
 
Pip
12:47 AM
secret meeting officially over
we have our prototype planned out
very messy, but will be cleaned up :)
 
neat
 
Pip
@Noctrine there's your update: prototype planned, will start work on it soon
:)
bbiab, gotta go to the bathroom
 
Awesome
 
Meeting over!
 
it's funny because we were able to say
"yo pip and the guys are holding a secret meeting"
while it was in progress
 
Pip
12:52 AM
yep
it was secret what it was about :P
 
was it about malware tycoon?
 
Yeah
Not really secret
 
ha, gotcha
 
Pip
lol
 
We discussed some ideas for 'scripts' and the prototype
 
Pip
12:53 AM
mhm
@hasherr can I allow Alex to the doc?
or should i not?
 
Uhh...
I don't know. It's kind of a developer doc only
 
Pip
alright
 
no need
 
Yeah, go ahead, just don't let him modify
 
you guys handle it best
since it's your game
allowing me would ruin the whole minor league thing
 
12:54 AM
Yeah, true
 
better keep what links you together alive
 
As much as I'd like him to see, not the best idea I don't think
The different between Minor League and the rest of you all
We have fake ID's, you guys have real ID's
 
we should form the senior league
and stay true to being seniors
by doing nothing at all
hahaha
:(
 
lol
I wish there was older people in the room
Then they could form the senior league
 
Pip
yeah
@hasherr I have a state-validated school ID
and a state ID number
 
12:57 AM
I don't think you got the joke XD
 
Pip
lol
I do, but still :P
what are you still doing here?
 
I'm hungry now
I think I still have a McToast
 
Pip
then food
 
McToasts are great
 
Pip
lol
 
12:59 AM
they're just plain buns
with a slice of cheese
and a slice of
 
Pip
odd
 
can't find the damn word
pressed ham (?)
they're not that interesting but they do seem to be the least post-processed food McDonald's has to offer here
 
Pip
canadian bacon?
that is not pressed, but is a circle or ham
 
this
 
Pip
canadian bacon I think
 
1:09 AM
I Romanian it's called "sunca presata"
the only translation I found for it is "dry-cured ham" but it doesn't seem to fit it that well
it could also be just regular ham, it's hard to tell the difference with all this cheese around it
but it's definitely something like in that pic above
 
Pip
alright
 
meta.stackoverflow finally became stackexchange meta
and SO got its own meta
 
Pip
I know :P
I <3 PyCharm
 
1:24 AM
woot, my first !jam related post on meta

A: Should people who vote to close, answer questions anyway?

Alex M.There is no voting for closing anymore, just voting for keeping questions on hold. There is a subtle but important difference. A question is on hold until its content gets improved enough for the restrictions to be removed. With these improvements in mind, one can attempt to answer.

no, scratch that, it's the 2nd
 
Pip
lol
 
@hasherr I prefer 'masters'.
 
cough
I think the older we get the less likely it is to have the enthusiasm to start a league
and work on something together
 
Pip
lol
 
which is probably why we should try to cheer for the minor league's attempts
 
1:32 AM
I can agree with that .... I sort of quit new games after Civilization IV .... well, that's not true. I now play things like 'candy land', uno, and catch
(and candy crush ... and 2048, apparently).
 
I lost the urge I had to play games as a kid but I sort of found it again with anime themed games for some reason
I hope it lasts
though I'm well aware it's not because the games are fun but because they're pretty
I just can't have as much fun as before playing games :(
 
I re-play CivIV when I get sick.... spend the day in bed, trying to conquer the world
 
no idea why
 
Pip
if anyone can answer:

Q: TypeError when creating a class

PipToday, some unexpected behavior came up. When I wrote this: class ErrorPost(object): def __init__(self, message): self.message = "[Error]" + message print(self.message) del self class ErrorLog(ErrorPost): def __init__(self, message): super().__init__(mess...

@rolfl I have CivV
<3
 
why do you always explicitly inherit object?
it's not required
 
Pip
1:36 AM
so? it is implicitly inherited then... makes no difference
 
you type more stuff in
it's up to you though
it's definitely Python-style in my eyes
what with the self being mentioned explicitly and stuff
 
@Pip Never bought it ... I played all the previous versions, but heard that people who liked the previous versions would not like the new one.
Also, at release time it required a net connection. I believe that has changed.
 
@rolfl as someone who never played Civs I heard I'd much rather like Civ 5 than 4 because it's easier to play
 
I almost bought it just before gong on holiday for a week, without internet.....
 
I tried Civ 4 but I found it to be overwhelming for just a quick tutorial run
it's still on my shelf though, will definitely play it again when I get the time
but since Civ 5 is easier and I already own it, if I do get a new GPU soon, I'll probably try that one first
(it won't work on my integrated GPU)
 
1:40 AM
I think it is one of those 'builds on itself' series.... working up to CivIV helps (although CivIV is actually easier than the previous one).
 
Pip
@AlexM. yeah, wouldn't work on my old integrated GPU either, before I got a new computer. I can now run it on med-high settings
 
my PC really needs an upgrade
it also needs a new higher res display
in two days my phone will run at a higher resolution than my computer monitor WTF
in two years phones will beat my computer altogether
what with Ubuntu Touch and all that
 
Pip
lol
 
but I guess it's only natural
there's a certain comfort to carrying your desktop in your pocket
then going home and just connecting it to a display
 
Pip
yeah
 
1:59 AM
@Almo maybe we can bridge the gap if I say an important part of the definition is doing ones "best", a parent is a success if they manage to provide as realistically best as they can. I think a misunderstanding arose between implying best theoretically possible and best reasonably possible.
 
hearthstone got released for iPad
 
2:11 AM
haah
never played classic WoW
but that sounds fun
 
 
3 hours later…
5:31 AM
@AidanMueller Sounds useful. I often heard that there's too little "game" in the peaceful mode, especially for people who want their kids to be able to play Minecraft for the creativity, but don't want the fighting and want them to still have a challenge.
 
6:15 AM
hi
 
6:30 AM
Morning
 
 
3 hours later…
9:05 AM
Morning all tips hat
 
Morning tips hat
So, I work in a building where multiple businesses have offices. I was getting something to drink from the common cafeteria when I was recognized by someone as "The guy who always wears a hat".
I'm not sure how I feel about that
 
9:52 AM
@KevinvanderVelden I'd say "neutral", if it's just a fitting description of what you dress like.
 
10:04 AM
Narcissistic personality disorders seem rampant among computer professionals, as here we see some major traits of people with narcissistic personalities, characterized by strong feelings of being ashamed of themselves all-the-while presenting a grandiose front.
The old saying "He is a legend in his own mind" describes to-a-tee someone with narcissistic personality disorder and these types of weirdoes are super-common in the computer science and information technology industries where geeks and misfits can become zillionaires, despite their crippling mental problems.
 
10:17 AM
aka big ego?
 
Jon
This is so true
Nerds build up their own world in their minds.
When they build software, they think they are gods. Truth is no one really cares.
 
Pip
10:53 AM
good morning
 
nnning!
 
Pip
how are you @BlueBug?
 
@Pip Watching video "The Life Of A Young Entrepreneur" youtube.com/watch?v=OjYceP2Fup4 :D
 
Pip
must watch nao
 
it's a bit boring though hurhurhur. I think its more of nice listening; I am actually, not watching it but listening to it while doing stuff.
 
Pip
11:00 AM
lol
 
Jon
 
absolutely amazing, I would have killed for this toy when I was kid, and maybe still do.
 
Pip
nice
 
Jon
i'd play with this for minutes!
 
Pip
lol
 
Jon
Heh.. I remember pulling out the old atari 2600... played every game literally like 15 seconds each
Hmmmm, someone with money is buying Square Enix?
 
They're selling to SMBC Nikko Securities.
 
Jon
RPG Financing woot woot
 
Pip
bbiab all
 
Jon
its funny, because to me SMBC is a comic.
 
11:25 AM
@MickLH Ok, what it sounded like was "if a child hits something they are not ready for, it is the parents' fault for not preparing them, in every case"
 
Pip
back
hey Almo!
 
I program about ten liens an hour.
 
Pip
why Blue :/
that is sooo unproductive
 
OTL me knows. No employer will want me.
 
Pip
@Almo did I already ask you if you would want to playtest MT when the prototype is finished?
 
Pip
12:09 PM
hey @Ali.S
 
you did pip, and I said if I had time I would consider it. :)
 
@AlexM. huh? what?
eh? que? was? täh? ce? cosa?
damn I can't remember any more of those
 
Pip
12:27 PM
@Almo :)
lol
 
10 lines per hour is fine if they are really good lines
 
Pip
@IcyDefiance is the server down again?
 
@Pip hey!
 
Pip
sup?
 
started working on HWO
had a hard time, running their code on VS2012
 
Pip
12:34 PM
ah
you in a team?
 
Got 8.9 seconds on my team
Just run it in a VBox Ubuntu with Monodevelop
VS2012 just fucked with the files so badly you couldn't build it
 
What's HWO?
 
well, it's completely running in VS now
 
Pip
 
man, I really have to change my password
 
Pip
12:37 PM
why?
 
Hmm fancy
 
is your password hunter2?
 
@Almo that just shows as stars on my screen
 
oh sorry. :)
 
Pip
@Lasse I have something for you
 
12:46 PM
:O
what could that be
 
Pip
definately sfw, but has to do with HWO
so it cannot be revealed in chat
 
allright
 
Pip
where should I put it?
 
I don't know
my email is my nick in this chat @ my nick in this chat . pw
 
Put it in a pastebin and put that on chat :D
That way it's technically not on chat ^,^
 
12:47 PM
yes, I wrote it that way so google wouldn't find it but whatever :P
 
Pip
lol
sorry
there
 
and lower case letters
 
Pip
kk
 
I don't think google indexes these chats.
But still smart to be safe
 
Pip
it does
:/
@Lasse sent
btw I have another email that seems to be yours @Lasse
is it your nick.your last name?
 
12:51 PM
yeah
 
Pip
lol
why two emails?
 
the other is the spammy spammy and the other is the one that redirects all the email to whatever service I am currently using
 
Pip
ah
 
and thanks for the track :P
 
Pip
yeah :)
 
12:53 PM
our algorithm already calculates the most optimal path for the track, and it works if it changes too
 
Pip
lol
I think that way is faster though... hm
maybe it is because the one you are taking has some other advantage
idk
 
ah, right, our best time is with the old AI
 
woa it does index it
ok good to know
 
we haven't been able to beat that time with our newest AI
 
Pip
12:55 PM
BLUE IS ONLINE
Blue, Scotland, United Kingdom
2.3k 10 29
@Blue hey man!
 
Can you test that locally?
 
no, it has to connect to the server
need to go afk, ttyl
 
Pip
12:59 PM
cya Lasse
 
Pip
btw that AI proves me correct :P
 
Well yes, @Pip I am indeed online :P
 
Pip

When did you/are you having your wedding, btw?
I completely forgot :P
 
Next year
 
1:03 PM
@Pip @Blue WHAT?
 
Pip
ah
 
@Blue when did all this happened?
 
Pip
um
 
@Blue send me an invitation :P
but hey, we are getting off-topic
 
Pip
we are allowed... just not really...... whatever :P
so
For anyone who doesn't know, the prototype for MT is starting development soon. Expect to hear more about it!
3
can that have a star?
and can someone unpin my playtesting post?
 
1:08 PM
I'm wondering if anyone actually playtested battery (my game)?
 
@Ali.S It's been good knowledge for a while that I'm engaged!
 
@Blue well, I guess I was really not paying enough attention to the room...
 
:P
 
So are we allowed to offtopic or not????
 
Pip
a little
 
1:10 PM
K
 
Pip
@Byte56 or @Noctrine can you unpin my post and pin the other?
@Blue was reading your blog :P
 
@Pip do you know if cars can collide or not?
 
Pip
no idea
sorry
 
of course cars can collide
and burb
salmon is so good
 
Pip
@KevinvanderVelden may I join the FTB server?
I am a bit bored atm
 
1:29 PM
sup nerds
 
Pip
hey @ShotgunNinja and @ChristianCareaga
 
I HAVENT SLEPT
hahaha
 
Pip
Christian, fix skype?
 
Pip

LOL
from steam
 
1:44 PM
When easter comes, people hoard candy and eggs, and then meanwhile in finland:
 
Pizzat?

why not just "pizza" then
 
because hurr durr finnish
 
right
 
@Pip What about my blog :P Haven't updated in a while.
 
Pip
lol

Heh
 
2:29 PM
WHats the other one pip?
 
@Pip you may! You just have to be whitelisted by Jochem in the Minecraft talk room
Ooh you already did =p
 
2:43 PM
:O The original room.

 Game Development

Discussion & Feed for the Game Development SE site.
 
Pip
wow
 
Super Throwback.
 
wow, that's like from before I started programming :DDDDD
 
3:08 PM
what's really scary is I can find USENET posts from me in the early 90s if I search for my college email address.
when you read shit you wrote 20 years ago, you realize how far you've come.
 
@Lasse I'm almost at a point where I could finish a lap in 530 turns
 
cool
 
I'm just getting off the track in the last curve, if only I could fix that...
and there still is a lot of room for optimization
 
Almost for Shaders working in C++!
almost...
 
@Lasse finished in 700 turns :|
 
3:19 PM
our record is about 500 ticks
but it's not about the ticks, it's about the seconds
 
tick/second is a fixed ratio, is it not?
 
not really, the server counts them in a really weird way
 
@Lasse I'm pretty sure I'll be a lot faster in the second lap
 
it's waiting for messages from you and it does not do anything if it doesn't get a message
 
in my code, racing the first lap is merely checking how fast the car can go
the second lap was finished in almost 620 ticks
@lasse 11.51s->10.43s->10.07s
