Q: Why did many pinball machines at some point stop using a "spring-thingie"?

Pin BallerFrom what I can tell, beginning in the 1990s or late 1980s, some pinball machines stopped using the "spring-thingie" which you normally pull and release to make the pinball fly out into the table each time. Instead, they replaced it with a big, binary (non-pressure sensitive) "START" button, or s...

 
I think I just got a taste of how @Frank feels sometimes: I was called a "cancerous asshole" for casting a close vote
 
Okay, so every stand-up comedy I've looked at on Netflix is tagged with "Irreverent".
Is there a reverent comedian? Seems like an oxymoron.
 
1:29 AM
@murgatroid99 Here? Point me at it.
 
Finished Nioh once, playing again now with a different weapon. I really like the combat in it a lot.
 
@Frank The comment was deleted as soon as I flagged it, so I assume others flagged it too
It was on that pinball question
 
Yeah, found it.
 
I think that might be a stronger negative reaction than I've gotten to any moderation action I've taken on the site where I'm actually a mod
 
1:51 AM
Just finished framing out a wall for my basement. So much measuring and cutting.
 
@Frank Don't forget; measure once, cut twice.
 
@TrentHawkins Isn't it supposed to be the other way around...?
 
2:16 AM
@Frank Well, sure, if you don't want to do it the fun way.
 
2:36 AM
@Lazers2.0 Even if it was about video games this would be developer intent anyway
 
3:09 AM
Bad news. We had our second casualty in Aftermath.
 
3:36 AM
God, 10-2 took me way too long.
I had to write basically a whole new solution because I decided to brute force part 1.
My solution potentially isn't generic, since it doesn't make it a full circle before hitting asteroid 200.
 
3:52 AM
@InvaderSkoodge I have that downloaded. How does it compare to souls combat?
 
@Memor-X This feels like kind of a loaded question. I give exactly 0 shits about it being an Epic Game Store exclusive or the contract they had with it. As far as bugs, there are some, but they're minor. The bigger problem I'd say is some balance issues. I've got about 40 hours into the game now (which should make it clear I do enjoy it) and there are some pretty broken combos. For example, one ability, dash, lets you spend 4 willpower to get a free move.
So instead of spending the 1 or 2 AP (of 4 you get per turn) to move, you can dash for 4 willpower. Then do it again. And again. For as much willpower as you have (max is around 20> So that's basically 10 AP of moves before you start even spending AP. And you get 2 willpower (3 with a perk) every time you kill an enemy. And there's a skill you can get that gives you 2 AP when you kill an enemy
So you can make a shotgun guy who basically zooms all over the map on turn 1, constantly getting refunded willpower and AP for every kill, and kill like 10 guys in a round
To be clear, that's kind of fun to do. But on some missions (like one where I started next to 6 units that can mind-control 3 of my guys each... and I only have 6 guys), you almost need to use it to succeed
So overall the game needs some rebalance. And I'd love to see more content. You see pretty much all the enemies pretty quickly and then just fight versions of them with more armor, mostly, as time goes on
Combat feels so much better than XCOM though
And the geoscape is a lot better too
So could it have used more polish? Sure! Can I say whether or not whatever money they did or didn't receive from Epic Games went towards that, and it would have been even less polished without it? Who knows? I write software too. Sometimes you just fuck up and go way over budget.
The actual bugs I've had are shooting from cover not always working correctly (patched already), I had one item I looted from the battlefield was broken and unequippable (and the tooltip was <Missing ID> or something like that), and I've got a tech upgrade that gives my energy generators +50% power, but every time I finish a mission and come back to the geoscape/base, it forgets that and powers off a third of my base, and I have to go turn things back on.
That's been pretty much it
A lot of the initial "this is a buggy mess" claims (mine included) were actually kind of from treating the combat and cover like XCOM. It's not. Just because you hide by a wall that shows a half cover or full cover marker doesn't mean you necessarily actually have cover from a particular person. It draws a real line of sight and bullet trajectory
And for the first 2 days or so there was a bug where your guys wouldn't always step out from cover to fire, so you'd get behind cover and not really be able to shoot at anything. And I think that probably made things seems a lot buggier than they were.
I would say they've got to know the game could have spend more time in the oven, though.
But it came out last Tuesday and I've got 45h 57m on it, so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I think in a year or two with patches, DLC, and mods, this is going to be the best XCOM-like to play
As for the Epic Game Store stuff, I just really don't care anymore every single time it comes up for all the different exclusives. I prefer Steam, but whatever. And I was an original Kickstarter backer. Yeah, they said Steam or GOG. They didn't do it (for another year, anyway). Life goes on. As far as broken Kickstarter promises go, this one is really, really minor to me.
Plus, my understanding is that I still get a Steam key in a year. "All backers up to this point will also STILL receive a Steam or GOG key after the 1 year exclusivity period. The Steam/GOG key will also receive the same 1 year of free DLC which came with the Epic key."
So now I can gift a copy to someone a year from now. Fine by me

Q: Why am I seeing so many Lairon recently?

F1KrazyFor the last few days, I've been seeing a considerable number of wild Lairon. I don't recall ever seeing a wild Lairon before - only Aron - but over the last few days I must have seen dozens. I don't particularly mind, as I have an Aggron with near-perfect IVs that could use the Candy. But why...

Still not over the solution in SPL for day 8
 
@Unionhawk I pretty much did this
Who has time to code a lcm function
 
I don't remember if my lcm function is based on Wikipedia or stackoverflow
And by based on I mean copied from
I should probably find and attribute it
I am in awe at the power of generating the link to get the wolframalpha answer in code
 
@Unionhawk I just found one and pasted it in. I still haven't worked out external libs yet
@Unionhawk Yeah. Pity they didn't call it and print the result.
 
I'm mostly mad it isn't built in to System.Math
 
8:18 PM
It's at the perfect threshold of 'I understand how to do this but cannot possibly be arsed'
 
8:37 PM
Isn't LCM something like lcm(a,b) => a * b / gcd(a,b)
 
Yeah
Maybe Math.abs around the numerator there
Then again today dealt wholly in positive numbers so I guess that doesn't matter
 
Is the concept even well defined for negative numbers?
 
I don't know Wikipedia had an abs on top
 
And then I think GCD is something like gcd(a,b) => case (a == b) => a | case (a > b) => gcd(a-b, b) | case (a < b) => gcd(b,a)
I guess the last two can be simplified to gcd(max(a-b, b), min(a-b, b))

There are better ways to communicate that an answer is not fully correct without being a jerk

@Unionhawk gcd and lcm are in the C++ standard library now, so I got to use that last night.

Assuming we're thinking about the same one
 
9:18 PM
Also used atan2 for 10-2, and probably should have used it for 10-1
(would have made 10-2 much easier)
but my solution also needed gcd for both 10-1 and 10-2

@Steve-o169 Not really meant to be entertaining.
We have our rules to follow, but that doesn't mean we can't try to help them.
 
@Frank As someone who's moderated other online communities, I find it entertaining watching someone melt down because they won't read/follow the rules of the community. Maybe my bar is set too low lol
 
9:34 PM
@Steve-o169 Eh. Getting out the popcorn and watching the meltdown doesn't really help with getting a positive outcome.
All it does is cause more drama and ganging up on the poor guy.
So let's limit the comments to that, and try to focus more on how to help them, alright?
 
@Frank Not much more to do for the guy? Not trying to offend or stir anything, just commenting on the situation. I'll leave it be, maybe my inner troll got the best of me on this one
 
@Steve-o169 We sometimes do discuss situations here, but please remember that this is a public chat room.
Snarking at their situation, while fun, doesn't really do much expect reinforce how unfriendly we can be.

User shaming is not cool.
 
9:52 PM
Did I say anything overtly disparaging? A user was presented with links describing rules and directions for using the SE platform and continued to violate them and instead added a cry for help to their profile. I've already agreed to drop it, merely commented on it with my reaction. shrugs
 
The comment is pretty disparaging. For things like that, just flag it, and let someone deal with it.
But let's just drop it there. We've said our piece, everybody agrees, all done.
 
Is it disparaging to the New York Yankees to say I was entertained by their game? I don't see the negative here. If the user has a Youtube channel, I might watch for the entertainment. Fair enough though, we can agree to disagree.

10:16 PM
In other news/questions, is naming updates now a common thing?
 
Ash
In what sense?
 
Stellaris names all their content updates after sci do authors
Like, Asimov, Clarke, etc.
 
Are those codenames?
Because codenames in software development has been a thing since forever
 
I guess codenames are probably the better way of describing them, yeah.
 
@Frank It adds flair to the update, and it's more memorable/human readable than "Update v3.6"
 
10:18 PM
They seem to be more prominent now than they used to be.
Makes it easier to figure out what it is, but harder to tell if you're actually up to date or not
Although, to be fair, version numbers are also not always the best way to go about it
See: Microsoft and their methodology for Office updates.
 
Ash
I feel like it's a reasonable attempt to make things more understandable in some ways, but yeah, it's hard to know immediately if like...Asimov came before Clarke, unless they go alphabetical
(I feel like there was something that did that with animal names?)
 
@Ash macOS versions used to be named after various types of cat
They weren't alphabetical though
 
Android used to be sweets.
 
Ash
Wasn't it like Ubuntu or something? I dunno
But yeah, giving some indication of "this is the newer one" is important.

Bridge, maybe you can help me
What is the best audiobook platform for somebody with vision problems (my dad, since his accident) and also looking for personal audio solutions as well for this
like.. voice commands. Probably google home or alexa
Audible seems really expensive for what you get
oh huh, my mom has amazon prime so I Guess they get audible
Maybe not a bad solution then
 
Ash
No, you still need to pay for Audible stuff
 
> Amazon Prime members, who pay $99 annually for free two-day shipping, can now access Audible audio service content at no additional cost. You'll be able to stream from a rotating group of more than 50 audiobooks. You can also listen to ad-free content including podcasts on Audible's new on-demand service Channels.
 
Ash
there's a small amount of stuff you don't have to pay for, but iirc when I last looked into it, you still either pay their monthly for one book credit per month, or pay per book
 
Oh. result from 2016
 
Ash
@GnomeSlice Oh, yeah, this thign
 
10:44 PM
@Ash pay per book is probably fine to start
 
Ash
it doesn't have much book wise
 
yea sounds like
Can you recommend a good platform?
 
Ash
I don't use audiobooks, myself.
At least, not often
 
Worth a shot
Me neither
 
Ash
I think most people I know who do use the audible monthly thing because it has the most books, you get one free per month with the monthly and then you get other books cheaper if you buy them
(also you keep anything you get through it)
 
10:47 PM
Wow. audiobooks are expensive
Now it doesn't seem like such a bad deal
 
Ash
Yeah, they're not cheap
Kobo does audiobooks, either pay for each, or a similar system to audible: kobo.com/us/en/audiobooks
It looks like it's a little cheaper than Audible
@GnomeSlice I love my Google Home Mini, if that helps?
 
My parents have a bunch of google home things and amazon echo things
 
Ash
(or are you looking for somethign that integrates with audiobooks? Because I don't know if it does)
 
I was thinking of something like this though amazon.ca/Polk-Audio-BITR-Boom-Bit/dp/B01HIS5NRG
initially
wearable and small
 
Ash
Oh, apparently Google play books does audiobooks - support.google.com/googlenest/answer/…
 
10:51 PM
integrating would be sweet but probably not affordable for me to start with
@Ash hm. neat!

Yeah, I didn't know about that until I searched for it just now

Dumbest thing I've ever shared probably actually
hue
@Ash This looks nice, but you only get one book a month?
I mean I don't know how much he's going to be using it if at all
My dad's... different now
 
Ash
@GnomeSlice you only get one book a month with Audible, too
 
11:05 PM
It says one audiobook plus "2 audible originals" whatever that means
 
Ash
with both, you can pay for more than one, but the sub is for one book a month
@GnomeSlice those are books that start out just on their service, I see it for random romance novels sometimes.
 
Oh, so one book and two crummy books
No offense I mean like likely not much my dad will want is what I meant
He will probably want books he's already read in the past
sorry
Makes sense though. I've been pretty happy with the kobo store for myself maybe I'll see about a gift subscription and a cheap speaker
 
Ash
@GnomeSlice It makes sense, yeah, the two audible originals are unlikely to be things he knows.
I've had a lot of good experiences with the Kobo store for ebooks.
 
I got into it this summer when I was in the hospital a lot
I liked it

Q: How do I make a don’t touch green minigame in Minecraft 1.14

user241246I want to make a Minecraft map and I’m a noob at command blocks, I need help, could you teach me?

audible definitely seems to have the most books
 
Ash
They make excellent ereaders and their customer service is pretty stellar.
 
Anyone else's inbox just get flooded with a bunch of [Announcer] badges?
 
Ash
@GnomeSlice yeah, they do, but they're part of Amazon, so that's not surprising.
Kobo's not been doing audio for very long.
@Robotnik Nope.
 
@Ash 🤔
 
Not I

Weird

All the new ones are on answers for me. Perhaps there was a bug that was fixed

The original queries the sharing badges, Announcer, Booster and Publicist, were supposed to count the total number of unique IP Addresses that visited from ...

Ash

@murgatroid99 mystery solved! Good work gang.
 
This might be the best solution after all
one book a month isn't very great..
 
Ash
Also, does your local library do audiobooks? Mine does, and they have a pretty big selection
 
@fredley Welcome to my kitchen, we have bananas and avocados
 
Ash
I think they use the Libby app
 
11:31 PM
@Ash yeah I believe so
 
@GnomeSlice uwot
 
Ash
@GnomeSlice Might be worth checking that out?
 
I should ask my mom

She uses the library a lot
Haha, star
 
Ash
@GnomeSlice Looks like you have a number of options: biblioottawalibrary.ca/en/collections/audiobooks
(the overdrive stuff will be using the Libby app I mentioned)
