@fbueckert I get a lot of flak for my eating habits.
lactose intolerant?
@OrigamiRobot Meh. You're alive. Really, in the grand scheme of things, that's all that matters.
@pixel Not at all. I love dairy.
@fbueckert When I get a sub, turkey and lettuce. The end.
@IanPugsley makes fun of me all the time.
@OrigamiRobot Aww. You're missing some of the best stuff.
Sidenote: I don't like lettuce very much. Dilutes other tastes.
@fbueckert Nope. Lettuce is awesome. Lettuce is the best.
12:02 AM
@OrigamiRobot We are no longer friends.
@RavenDreamer I don't want to clutter up comments, but yes, Yes I agree.
@fbueckert Why? I can eat all the lettuce you don't want.
I'm kind of shocked that nobody has called out how incredibly petty Matthew Reads answer to that question feels.
@OrigamiRobot ...You know what, you're right.
@LessPop_MoreFizz I thought it if that helps.
12:05 AM
I'll take your cheese, you can have my lettuce.
@fbueckert You missed the part where I love cheese. Especially cheddar.
@OrigamiRobot But you're not a true cheese lover, due to not liking it on everything.
@OrigamiRobot It's a very bad thing. People who use Cheddar to make pizza are monsters.
@fbueckert I just want it by itself. Putting on things negates the things!
Q: How to make borders in streams

Serion442Ive been watching a of streams lately and some streamers have boxes or borders over certain things with logos in them or what not. does any one know what program they are using??

12:08 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz My mom used to do this homemade pizza thing and she used cheddar cheese. I hated it. It was also bad pizza to begin with.
@Lazers Where should this be migrated?
@fbueckert Should it be at all?
@LessPop_MoreFizz It's certainly off-topic here.
Trying to figure out where it might be better.
Okay, so first of all, @RavenDreamer you here?
Plz to be merging/synonimizing gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/streaming-video to gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/streaming I leave the choice for canonical up to you.
Second of all,
@fbueckert We've handled several similar questions with no issue. I don't really see this as off topic.
@LessPop_MoreFizz ...How? It's not really about video games. It's about video editing.
12:13 AM
@fbueckert How, for example, is it any less on topic than this
@LessPop_MoreFizz That should be closed, too. I don't understand what either of those has to do, short of a tenuous connection to gaming.
@fbueckert There's several dozen others. Just search for 'stream' or 'record' or 'fraps' and you'll find plenty of other examples.
We've considered these questions to be in our wheelhouse for over two years, and hashed the subject out on meta repeatedly.
Q: Video conversion question

OakThere is a controversy regarding badp's What is the simplest way to re-encode Fraps recordings to something more sensible? question, as evident both in that question's comments and in chat room created explicitly for that question. As there appears to be no conclusion reached in chat, this meta-...

That's the only meta I can find about things like that, and it fairly conclusively states it's off-topic.
There IS an SE network for audio/video things.
@fbueckert the argument in the meta post is relating to post-processing
@fbueckert the question linked is not
@pixel Is there really a difference? It's about video editing.
12:19 AM
In fact it states that in the context of capturing video it is on topic, and it's only the post processing part that is off topic
and adding borders in real time to a video that is being streamed is definitely within 'capturing' rather than 'post processing'
@pixel The question does not state one or the other.
@fbueckert only takes some common sense to realise that if its adding borders to a video before its streamed its in the capturing stage
@pixel It says nothing about being live streamed.
You can capture a video, and process it later.
@fbueckert that is just pedantic. Find a gamer that streams non-live video these days
@pixel Youtube videos
12:22 AM
You can stream things that aren't live. Gamer streams can be the same thing.
still, your two examples both offer live streams
You're going to tell me Netflix offers streams of things as they're being recorded?
pedantic arguments are easy to reverse, using them will just result in an hour long deadlock of back and forth
The high voted question on the meta post states that streaming is covered as in scope on Arqade
Incidentally, non-live 'streaming' is generally uploaded to a third party, the gamer does no streaming
Only one downvote in an entire hour? You people are slipping.
12:32 AM
Ok, I can understand programs that are very specific to gaming.
However, all we're getting is a basic, "What program are they using?"
@fbueckert yep, and that is basically requesting a recommendation
@LessPop_MoreFizz Thy askance hath been granted.
@pixel Which we don't do. So it's still off-topic.
@RavenDreamer You downvoted me? How nice of you!
@pixel You know if you click the little arrow on the right side of the message, it links your reply to that specific message?
12:35 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz hm?
I've cast no votes. I did the merging
@RavenDreamer Look at what you replied directly to.
He actually only pinged.
@OrigamiRobot additional clicking
There is no arrow.
12:36 AM
mouse is sat on my desk, I'm sat half asleep in my chair with my keyboard
@pixel A mouseclick that saves anywhere from 7 to 10 keystrokes.
@pixel I was just making sure you knew. Also, it save you at least 2 keystrokes.
@LessPop_MoreFizz 3 keystrokes for auto complete or reach half a meter away
Q: Does Vladimir's Sanguine Pool have a hidden movement speed buff?

JayThe description for Vladimir's Sanguine Pool is: (Active): Vladimir sinks into a pool of blood becoming untargetable for 2 seconds and slowing enemies above him by 40% for 1 second. Additionally, he deals magic damage every half second to them and heals himself for 12.5% of the damage d...

@pixel l2trackpad
12:37 AM
Not my keyboard, I have a mechanical keyboard, no trackpad on one of these
@pixel And?
They make keyboards with trackpads on them.
they're awesome.
fml, I'm stuck in an up arrow loop
stop playing with my emotions
Then whose are we supposed to play with?
Spugsley seems the obvious choice.
She is is New Jersey.
12:40 AM
it was more a reference to my repeated brain signal to hit up arrow before replying
Apropos of nothing, I saw Daleks today.
@AshleyNunn Did you think they were cute?
@OrigamiRobot They were quite awesome.
Robots: 1
Turtles: 0
Spice Girls: 5
Robots: 1
Turtles: 0
12:49 AM
@pixel Spice Girls arent cute. Daleks and robots are cute.
Daleks are scarey
Wall:E is cute
GiR is super cute
@pixel I used to be GIR!
@OrigamiRobot what does the G stand for?
@OrigamiRobot You are still super cute even as not-GIR
12:50 AM
wrong answer, correct answer: I dooooooooon't know... wwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
@pixel Actually, it's more like weeeeeeeeeeeeeheeeeeeeeheeeeeeeeheeeeeeee
I stand corrected
I saw a squirrel. It was going like this!!
I'm going to sing the doom song now... doom doom do do doom do do doo dooooooom
12:52 AM
I have something relevant to this conversation
let me find it
ok uploading
its from 2008 so don't be too judgemental
the bass levels are excessive
@pixel You're too late! I'm already judging you!
I am not going to remaster it for the sake of this conversation :P
@OrigamiRobot You are not going to remain a cute robot if you are a meanie.
@OrigamiRobot Ewww. Why would anyone willingly go to New Jersey.
12:57 AM
1.93MB of 12.12MB uploaded so far, god I love my internet...
(Says the guy who has to go to New Jersey just about weekly.)
@LessPop_MoreFizz Gambling.
@OrigamiRobot Pretty much that, yes.
@OrigamiRobot Oh. AC.
Why would anyone go to AC instead of Vegas if they are not within a short drive of AC. (Which is the only good reason to go there.)
I suppose maybe if you just really really idolize Donald Trump?
@LessPop_MoreFizz SHe got her brand new phone stolen on the way there. She was still in NC at the time.
12:59 AM
@OrigamiRobot It would have been stolen in Atlantic City if she hadn't.
Atlantic City is fucking scuzzy
She only plays slots anyway. She could just go to Cherokee like she normally does.
let us rain some doom down upon the filthy heads of our doomed enemies
2:11 onwards is my favourite part
A: How can I teach new spells to a follower?

BrigoesThank you so much wildernessofspirit@gmail.com! You brought my girlfriend back within 2days. she was at my house when I pulled up and she said we have to talk. She told me that deep down I am the only man for her. I have been waiting to hear that for days now, but within 2days after you cast the ...

This needs to die.
@AshleyNunn flagged as spam
@LessPop_MoreFizz I had to laugh because it's so true.
1:06 AM
@AshleyNunn What is this I don't even
@TimStone Seriously. If New Jersey is America's Armpit, Atlantic City is New Jersey's Armpit.
@OrigamiRobot It happens sometimes, on questions that talk about spells
I haven't been there in a while, and am likely a happier person for it.
@TimStone Also, I'm glad someone got it.
So I was in a 7-11 today paying for gas, and I heard a woman ask the dude behind the counter where a nearby restaurant was.
After a bit of back and forth about what they were after, during which she said to her husband "I don't want taco bell, I want a nice meal!"
the guy behind the counter said something to the effect of "If you just keep on this road for about two miles, you'll pass by everything you could want, from fast food, to sit-down Dennys"
Dennys. The height of fine dining.
Please get me the fuck out of the South I'm dying here please I can't take it much longer.
I have never been to a Denny's
1:10 AM
@OrigamiRobot They have a baseball themed breakfast menu.
@OrigamiRobot I haven't either, but I blame that on being a Canadian
Q: How to select champion before automatch?

bizso09I've read some guides on a champion and want to try it out. However, in automatch the champion may be selected by other players in my team, thus it may not be available to me. How can I select my champion beforehand so that I only matched with games where I can be that champion definitely? EDIT:...

@LessPop_MoreFizz I thought they were a breakfast food diner type place
Like a not as awful Waffle House or something
@OrigamiRobot Yeah, that's fair.
And their breakfast menu is baseball themed.
That said, I'll eat a bacon and egg sandwich from Waffle House.
1:13 AM
@OrigamiRobot I went to a Waffle House in Tennessee once. IDGI.
place was dirty and disgusting and made my skin crawl and the food was bad too.
I mean, I wouldn't choose to go to Waffle House, but if I am with people who are going, why not?
@OrigamiRobot If you are with people who are going, I question your judgement of character.
@LessPop_MoreFizz They were drunk and/or high.
i.e. do you regularly hang out with meth addicts?
one hell of a jump from crap food to meth
1:20 AM
@pixel Waffle House has a... reputation.
@LessPop_MoreFizz heh
@LessPop_MoreFizz to be honest, American fast food chains have a reputation in general
at least over in Europe they're forced to have standards
@pixel Waffle House isn't fast food in the way that McDonalds is.
It's not standardized and processed.
for worse, not better.
how do you get worse from ground up mush in the shape of a burger?
But I didn't mean a reputation in terms of quality, I meant a reputation as a place to exchange currency for illegal powders.
I wish I could drop by mcdonalds and get weed
that would be awesome
1:29 AM
@pixel To be fair, grinding up and grilling meat usually makes it delicious. It's when you do it with poor-quality processed frozen meat that it gets gross.
@IanPugsley that's why I used the word "mush"
@pixel Ah - couldn't tell if that was a dislike of hamburgers altogether or of fast food specifically. I agree, then!
"All I have to do is hack the API and I can get the root directory of this hard drive back"
@LessPop_MoreFizz What, the Grand Slam isn't on your list of culinary delights?
opens regedit
TV's interpretation of anything technological is hilarious
1:33 AM
@pixel Something something csi
There was one I mentioned earlier that made me fall off my chair
they just said "ok lets try accessing the RAM buffer" and then typed "LOAD RAM/BUFFER"
@pixel That's not that stupid.
the first part, maybe not
the second part... just no
1:37 AM
See: chkdsk, fixboot, etc
@OrigamiRobot in the context of what was on screen it was retarded
loadram /buffer is one of the more plausible things I know of from those shows
Q: Skyrim: Should I retire followers after I've leveled up significantly since their joining?

oscilatingcretinSome brief research has lead me to the conclusion that, while the strengths of a follower match your current level at the time of their joining you on your quest, they do not level up through the rigors of questing as does your character. If this is true, it would appear to make sense to retire ...

Q: Why are some of my characters surrounded by a grey swirl?

Ashley NunnSometimes I have noticed that Sora (or anyone else in my party) will be walking around with this odd grey wispy swirling thing around them. What does it mean? Is it a good thing or a bad thing?

Q: Does Skyrim for PC support command line options?

oscilatingcretinIdeally, I'd like to use a command line option to automatically resume the most recent save game. This would essentially be the equivalent of clicking Continue from the game's opening menu. Although I am mainly interested in a command line option that supports that feature, I'd really like to s...

"Is that a 12 core?" ... "16... with a 10mb pipe"
@pixel Oh, this scene is terrible.
1:41 AM
That's more like it.
If you look at the login screen for that game
its the WoW login screen with the logo changed
"Gaming handle" hah!
@pixel Yuuuuuup.
and holding the "high score" in every MMORPG is just not feasibly possible
MMORPGs have high scores?
1:44 AM
a) they don't have high scores in most MMOs and b) an MMO is a time consuming activity just playing one of them
@RavenDreamer WoW does!
Clearly she's the ultimate multiboxer
@LessPop_MoreFizz You mean the challenge modes? Not yet!
@RavenDreamer I mean achievement points. Duh.
Or rated PvP, I guess.
@RavenDreamer battlegroup PVP rating, achievement points, world ranking for raiding
1:45 AM
@LessPop_MoreFizz I was so happy when I got my red protodrake. It was right after they nerfed the one Nerubian Dungeon where you had to beat the boss in 2 min or whatever.
And yes, I realize you own 50x the WoW accolades as me.
@RavenDreamer Gotta Go.
I spent... more hours than i want to admit working on that one pre nerf.
Er, wait. That's the name of the achievement, isn't it?
@RavenDreamer Gotta Go was the name of the achievement.
1:47 AM
We insisted on doing it with a healer.
Which meant it took a lot of attempts.
and the use of several borderline exploits involving dots and hunter pets
Those were good times.
Yeah, my group was lucky. We were going down the list, and as we were getting down to the last few, we saw a blue post or whatever that it was being nerfed.
So we were just like, "Oh. Let's wait an extra week".
Ah, those were the days. Tight knit group of friends kickin' butt for virtual points.
And for what it's worth, I think the Occulus gets a bad rap.
@RavenDreamer It definitely does.
Although the oculus achievements were a pain.
Oh, yeah. Especially the, "Beat the boss without color X"
We did one 5x green and one Amber / Red mix
Took a few tries for the speed run one too
occulus... hate that instance
1:54 AM
I think my favorite Wrath instance was the Nerubian one with the optional fungus boss.
@RavenDreamer We did a green/red run and a 5x bronze
@LessPop_MoreFizz Yeah, we got the 5x green before they changed the fight to add anti-kiting mechanics
and we also learned that 3/5 of us (read: not me) couldn't kite worth beans.
@RavenDreamer Best Wrath launch instance was Utgarde Pinnacle, sorry.
@RavenDreamer We used some kind of goofy exploit for the speed run that I can't remember.
Something about getting drakes, dying, resetting the instance, and skipping the first, on foot section of trash?
I don't remember it got fixed super fast.
@LessPop_MoreFizz Memory's a little foggy; didn't do those ones too much. Was that the one with the blue drake?
Why'd you like it so much?
The red drake in the first few weeks was basically just a contest to see who could exploit the most things the most quickly, which is why it was so much fun.
It was all about creative LOS tactics and figuring out which bugged spells allowed for absurd dps.
Once they fixed everything and we had actual non-terrible gear, shit was easy and boring.
@RavenDreamer Yeah, it was. I dunno, i just think it was the most fun one to tank as a paladin.
1:58 AM
start of cataclysm as a disc priest, I never want to live through that much pain and suffering again
@pixel Disc priests were awesome at the start of cataclysm if you had a group that was prepared to use them...
Hello TeamSmite Heroic Halfus Exploit.
no, disc priests were awesome after the first month of cataclysm with the exception of halfus
7k shields and no real heals wasn't fun
once absorbs got buffed we could actually do decent hps
@pixel In general, the community as a whole has always severely underrated disc priests relative to their value at the high end of the raiding spectrum, so I tend to tune out disc priest complaints, tbqh.
See: Wrath, when all the scrub guilds refused to accept disc priests while every top end guild wanted to recruit 17 of them for HLK
I was doing world top 50 at the time, my complaints are reasonably valid :P
@pixel Not saying they aren't. I'm saying I tend to not listen.
2:00 AM
the fact they buffed us, then nerfed us, then buffed holy so they were better at pws spam than disc, then nerfed and retuned again
was just a joke
I just remember laughing at the fact that for the first tier of cataclysm, I played the least hybridy class in the game, and I had to respec more times per raid than anyone else.
In the course of a cata-launch raid clear, I had to change specs... i want to say it was 8 or 9 times? And at least 5 of those at a trainer.
getting asked to respec holy so I could shield spam efficiently was a sad moment
@LessPop_MoreFizz Rogue?
@RavenDreamer Yes.
I had 3 Mut specs, 2 Sub specs and a combat spec that i would swap between from fight to fight
What was the difference between them?
2:05 AM
@RavenDreamer Mutilate with Run Speed, Mutilate with Damage Reduction, Mutilate with AE Slow.
@RavenDreamer Gimmick High Survivability Sub for V+T twilight realm absurdity
Standard Sub, and Standard Combat
Ah V&T
such fun times
we used blood DKs
@pixel Fun fight for a rogue.
I could stay down there for a full 60 seconds
our blood dks could stay down there all fight
yet apparently rogues were "overpowered"
@pixel As could I once our holy paladin learned to jump in periodically and top me off.
our dks didn't need healers :)
2:07 AM
@pixel They also did much less DPS than me. :P
moot point when you consider their unkillable status
@pixel Not moot at all when you consider that every drake you kill is a reduction in overall raid damage
they weren't drakes they were fiends
but yeah, we never found raid damage an issue until Cho'gall HC
@pixel Yeah yeah whatever, it's been nearly two years
then again we had some serious DERP on council HC
2:09 AM
@pixel We tended to run really healer light comps, and emphasized fast kills.
we used 5 healers
I was even allowed to build up stacks during mind control on nef
@pixel We would experiment with 4 fairly often.
and spam atonement
Our 'big break' in cataclysm was that we went for Omnotron when everyone else was skipping it and going for Chim.
And we got the Omno kill in two days and then magmaw a day later
which gave us a huge overall lead that allowed for us to derp around far more than we should've on atramedes and council.
Ah omnotron
I learned to hate our melee on that fight
2:11 AM
Actually, now that I think of it
We might've one nighted Omnotron
Yeah, pretty sure we one-nighted it.
Which was pretty fucking amazing.
"But the oozes aren't supposed to target melee" ... "Yes, but you've died to it every single pull by not moving out" ... "It must be a bug, they're not supposed to target melee so why should I move?" ... "BECAUSE YOU ARE WIPING US, JUST FKING MOVE" one shot
My friend had his steam account locked for buying too many games.
@James lol
@pixel Omnotron was one of the fights I had to respec for. Mutilate with AE-Slow for oozes!
Our actual worst fight was cho'gall
and it wasn't really a healing issue
2:12 AM
Also, 3 hours and only one downvote? YOU PEOPLE ARE SLACKERS, in addition to being pedants.
@pixel Cho'gall was fairly straightforward for us iirc
it was a 'trying to enter P2 with half the raid at 30 corruption' issue
but our raid leader used to classify everything as a healing issue
Shows the list of games it took to buy to get it to happen :D
By the time we got to cho'gall and sinestra, my interest in the game was fading, so my memory gets foggier there.
2:13 AM
Sinestra did my head in
Sinestra genuinely highlighted how many bad players we had in the guild, and how much they had been dragged through the content
by the time we got to firelands Ensidia had headhunted two of our best dps
and then by the start of dragonsoul said dps returned, due to ensidia getting banned
best excuses ever those
@pixel They had an angry scotsman, we had an unnaturally calm, but very foulmouthed australian.
Something about accents on my server.
romanians, scottish, english, french, dutch, swedish, and a single american
Best thing I ever heard from our (ex)raid leader
was "Somebody else raid lead, I'm taking off my headset to concentrate on my DPS"
@pixel I did that a few times when I was running raids.
2:24 AM
he was removed as raid leader and overthrown as GM shortly after
@pixel And yeah, thats more common on Euro servers. :P This was on a US realm.
I don't understand the greyscale scene cuts in NCIS
"hey! here is a peek at what you will see in 5 minutes" boom
2:41 AM
Q: What determines the marked difficulty level?

pixelWhat are the contributing factors to the marked 'Difficulty' level for a quest? I've noticed that the various difficulty levels that the game presents are; Very Easy Easy Normal Hard Very Hard Devastating What determines the marked difficulty level?

I'm not convinced that has the best possible answer on it
Q: When is it a good idea to buy Wriggle's Lantern on ranged AD carries?

user29721I've been told to never get it, to get it if my lane goes poorly, and to get it only when my lane goes well. What's the deal? Why so many differing opinions? I just want to know the truth!

Q: How do I get the storyline missions to start?

IsziAccording to the guide at ModLink: When I got the first message, I initially disregarded it. I left it sitting in my inbox, and wen to take care of the other missions I had queued first. After I finally got to following up on the message, I logged into the system of interest only to find tha...

oh no, it's got to silent o'clock again :(
