12:15 AM
i've put together a bunch of screenshots of my game development. all the wide images with 2 screens are comparisons between the default RPG Maker XP which is 640x480 and RPG Maker XP using the XP Ace upgrade with the resolution set at 800x600
it's not everything as there are some systems i haven't customized yet (like the shop) and they are still 640x480
the single images are the new systems that have been created since the upgrade (before upgrading i was on the Level 3 Tent but didn't make the Cartographer yet)

Q: Starcraft 2: can you permanently display the frames-per-second?

syn1kkIn Starcraft 2, you can display the frames-per-second by pressing ctrl-alt-f but then it goes away in after the current game ends. Can you permanently display the frames-per-second?

Q: How are favorite foods determined in Miitopia?

DonielFIn Miitopia, you’re able to feed characters different foods collected as enemy drops, which increase the characters’ stats depending on the food. How much those stats increase depends on how much the character likes these foods, ranging from absolutely hating the food (seems to give about 50% of ...

@BunsGlazing is it as difficult as FTL?
 
Nope
 
I enjoyed FTL, but I suck at it terribly
 
I beat it after a handful of attempts
 
Convoy always looked appealing
 
It's more accessible
 
2:02 AM
maybe I'll buy it...
 
I never beat ftl and i didnt have a ton of trouble with this one
 
I bought it... gonna try it out tomorrow
 
2:41 AM
@ToxicFrog i think you was talking to me about delays with the Atelier Arland Trilogy DX on Steam. can confirm that Plus was getting it in Meruru on the Vita for anything which needed access to the container and the delays slightly worse the closer i get to 1999 items in it and generally this delay is like once per scene
ie. i get a slight delay with synthesis, go out to the tavern to complete a requests and get a delay there, get a delay with synthesis again when i come back but no delay when i exit synthesis, save and go back to make something else
not going to say i know how the game works but i would suspect that how the container stores items in code isn't as good as i could have been

11:47 AM
@BunsGlazing nothing that couldn't be stopped =p
 
12:24 PM
There's a lot of neat little touches in Exapunks that's really neat
The EXAs are modeled after phage virus which changes as you code in different behaviors
The CCTV cameras in some levels that lets you see the chaos you're causing
 
How complicated is it?
 
Simpler than writing assembly :P
The solutions all have size limits. Most of my solutions so far are less than 50 lines of code
 
But not as simple as 7 billion humans for example
 
I assume not. Like TIS-1000 this game deals with distributed programming, so you have to content with synchronization, deadlocks and race conditions, all of which are very fun
 
Got it
 
12:33 PM
Oh yeah, the game has asynchronous multiplayer, which is pretty cute
 
Wait
Multiplayer?
Is this a first for programing games genre?
 
Nope
 
I know there is a game out there where you program JS and do your own thing
But this specific "puzzle" game with programming is new, right?
 
@Moacir doctor brain had a bunch of light programming elements in some of the games back in the 90s
 
@BunsGlazing This looks fucking amazing.
 
12:46 PM
It's on Android too. Last time I checked it out it was pretty bare bones but it seems to have come a long way
Think it's like $10 on Steam?
 
Wishlisted.
I try to be picky about what goes on there but this is such a cool idea.
 
I used to have a mobile game where you"programmed" a virus in a grid. Like how it expanded, captured antivirus, etc. And you'd run it and compete against other viruses
That was cool
Can't recall the name
 
Sounds like a virus-themed Corewars variant?
 
12:54 PM
Maybe
It doesn't exist anymore though I remember it died so I had to stop playing it
 
We should totally have a bridge-corewars server
 
At one point you're given a region locked video game to crack. Once you crack it, (which took quite a bit of effort), you find game's entirely in Japanese, including the help
The only part that's in English is the splash screen which warns you that selling the game outside of Japan is against the law.
This is hilarious
 
So, about copyrigth on a github project. The copyright is MIT, so it has "Conditions:License and copyright notice ". Where do I need to put these? In the eula when first starting? In a txt with the game? Both suffice?
 
@InvaderSkoodge have you heard of screeps.com
Oh I think that's the one @Moacir was referring to
 
@Moacir MIT only require you to keep the license with the original source of the library
 
1:04 PM
@BunsGlazing Yes. I looked into it briefly but didn't love the implementation.
 
@PrivatePansy So if I use it I dont have to pass it foward?
forward
 
Only if you distribute the source
 
@PrivatePansy it requires that you include the license and copyright notice with all "copies or substantial portions of the Software"; it's not clear to me that that excludes binaries
@Moacir it is not a requirement that it be prominently displayed to the user. IME most software includes a file next to the readme, or a button next to the credits, that lists the copyrights and licenses of all included components; that should be sufficient.
(that said, if you do have a splash screen, it's generally considered polite to include the logo(s) of your dependencies on it somewhere, if they have any)
 
@ToxicFrog My specific case. I am using gamemaker and there is a script on github that handles twitch connection. I should add a copyright file of the script inside my program, so it is at least inside a folder when it is installed, right?
 
@Moacir yes. A copy of the LICENSE/COPYING file from the repo should be sufficient. In larger projects these are usually all consolidated into a single OPENSOURCE.txt file or similar.
 
1:16 PM
Got it
 
If you make improvements to the script it would be polite to share them, but you are not required to by the license (unlike e.g. (L)GPL)
 
These are generally applied to open source things, right? If, I have a license to use a resource because I bought it, do I also need to show copyright?
Oh no, I wont be changing anything
 
Only if the license says you have to.
 
I will use the outputs to a different thing
This licence thing is hard
 
The "you have to include the license and copyright notice" bit is part of the MIT license itself.
 
1:18 PM
I'll have to check the humblebundle license
I am using some sprites from them
(That I bought from humblebundle some time ago actually)
 
I have no idea what the license is for any resources you may have bought, but it's probably a non-transferrable commercial use license of some kind?
nods
MIT at least is very simple: tldrlegal.com/license/mit-license
 
@ToxicFrog Yes. I dont have the right to give it for someone else to use, but I may use it in any projects I want (The original license had a wording where I could only use at ONE project but this got rectified)
Or something like that
I have to read it again
 
Anyways, the requirement to include the license and copyright notice for MIT-licensed stuff is baked into the MIT license itself (it's the second paragraph). It's not something intrinsic to all use of copyrighted components, although many licenses do include attribution requirements.
 
I just checked the gamedev one
Im cool as long as I dont share the originals or modified versions of originals without a media that actually uses them
 
1:31 PM
As long as its part of the media, Im cool as cucumbers
Yep. The 4.1 one
Afaik, If I got a bundle that has dogs and ducks, and only use the dogs, I cannot leave the ducks in
However if the dogs and ducks are at the same source, I'm ok sharing the ducks together
 
That's also my reading of 4.2(b), but I am of course not a copyright lawyer.
It's not clear to me if 4.2(c) requires you to actually make it difficult to extract individual assets or if it's enough that you don't give the user permission to do so; I would assume the latter, since the former is ultimately impossible.
 
Well, I think I wont get sued for it as long as I dont do anything stupid, like uploading the source to github
Then all the files would be there and that would not be good

Reasearchers at Bern University of Arts have discovered that Emmental cheese exposed to six months of hip hop while it is maturing has a stronger flavor and aroma than that exposed to Mozart or Led Zeppelin.
 
QI is a comedy panel show, IIRC.
 
Ash
Yes, but the stuff they post is actual randiom fact stuff
Thats more on the cheese and music thing
 
How much variation is there in wheels of cheese that aren't exposed to music?
 
Ash
Probably a reasonable amount
I don't think this is any sort of strong correlation that we can really build on :P
 
Right, that's my main concern :P
 
4:27 PM
So they only used one wheel per type of music?
 
Yep
And didn't have a control group that wasn't exposed to any music
 
I thought that's what the middle one was?
> Soundwaves at low, medium and high frequencies were played for three others while one wheel was left in peace.
 
Ash
This is mostly making me want cheese
 
Curse my lack of naturally-produced lactase.
 
Ash
I'll eat teh cheese for you and tell you how it is. in the name of friendship and helping
 
4:31 PM
Yeah, I'm going to go grab a chunk of cheese from the fridge
 
@SaintWacko And some wine?

I should have packed a cheese string or two in my lunch, i am full of regret

@Yuuki that's what lactaid is for! Also, in cultured aged cheeses the lactose is one of the things that the culture eats, so older cheeses like cheddar, emmentaler, parmesan, etc are generally safe to eat without it
 
Alright, I had the gouda yesterday, I'll have the havarti today
Ooh, that's fantastic

@Ash I thought you wanted cheese, not whatever unholy abomination so-called 'cheese' strings are
 
Ash
@Kevin I think they're actually cheese
 
Ash
Like the cheese is just heated a certain way or something to make it stringable afaik
 
Wikipedia seems to be in on the conspiracy
 
4:35 PM
Yeah, it's definitely cheese
 
They're not really a thing in the netherlands, because we just have regular cheese
 
(don't try this with young cheeses like mozarella or uncultured ones like halloumi or paneer, though, or you will be very sad)
 
Mozarella is apparently the one they use most often?
In heresy-land that is
 
Ash
Yeah, I was about to say, mozzarella is what like most cheese strings are.
 
Yeah. It's low-moisture, high-salt mozzarella with orange dye.
We've been keeping them on hand for Alex (who alternates between wanting cheesestrings and wanting aged cheddar) and I mostly just find them really bland.
 
4:38 PM
Orange dye?
Wtf kind of string cheese are you eating?
 
@SaintWacko the ones here are usually either orange or orange-and-white striped
There are also white ones but they're less common
 
@ToxicFrog o.0
Here you can find them orange-and-white striped
 
They come in different flavours, according to the wikiepedias
 
But the orange ones are not string cheese, they're cheddar
And by far the most common string cheese is white
 
What the heck is string cheese?
 
Mozzarella
 
I'm just going to make grilled ham-and-cheese-sandwhiches tomorrow to spite all of you
 
It's sticks of cheese that you can peel strings off of
 
@Wrigglenite we just went over this -- it's low-grade mozzarella shaped into individually packaged logs that can be peeled apart into "strings" as a snack
Kevin: don't forget the pickled onions, garlic butter, and cumin
 
No
 
4:40 PM
Mmm, garlic butter
 
Ham, cheese, bit of paprika powder, maybe some sauce if I'm feeling fancy
 
Pretty sure if the labeling says "cheese" then it's real cheese, otherwise it has to be labeled "Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product".
 
Ash
@Kevin ooooh good idea
 
@Yuuki Cheez Whiz. Totally not cheese.
 
It'll be my reward to my self for going out and voting tomorrow
 
4:41 PM
@Yuuki The best thing about this is "Jesus' Fiverr Page"
WWJD for five dollars?
 
@Kevin Don't forget the dill pickles.
 
Ash
@Yuuki I think that's why lunchables call it 'cheese food" (or at least tehy used to)
 
@Yuuki DEFINITELY no
 
And no ham-and-cheese sandwiches is complete without hummus.
 
@Kevin what sort of sauce?
 
4:42 PM
Mmm, dill pickles
The only good kind of pickle
 
This will be food, not a Yuuki (pronounced yucky) sandwhich
 
@Yuuki IME I can't fit both dill pickles and pickled onions in a grilled cheese sandwich
 
Ash
....some of these sandwiches are abominations. :P
 
And I prefer the latter, so
 
@ToxicFrog probably some chili sauce?
 
Ash
4:42 PM
@ToxicFrog agreed.
 
(although if I have branston pickle on hand that takes priority over both)
@Kevin oooo, laoganma?
 
Wasn't there an Internet thread about how adding things other than cheese and bread makes it NOT a grilled cheese sandwich?
 
Ash
I'd leave the cumin out though because no thank you
 
@ToxicFrog Which ever is the store brand =p
 
@JasonBerkan I think that's still the top post of all-time on /r/grilledcheese.
 
4:43 PM
@JasonBerkan well I'm saying ham-and-cheese to start with
And I'm not adding ingredients except spices
DESPITE SOME PEOPLE'S ATTEMPTS TO LEAD ME ASTRAY, FROM THE ONE TRUE PATH OF GRILLED HAM-AND-CHEESE-SANDWICHES
 
@Kevin I mean, I use laoganma as a generic term for all kinds of crunchy flaky chili sauce whether they are Traditional Angry Lady Sauce™ or not
 
I am picky about food, I don't like crunch unless the entire thing is crunchy
 
Aah
So not laoganma then
 
(I generally don't care what texture a food is, as long as it's the same texture)
 
One of my kids refuses to each cheese. Except he loves pizza. Kids are weird.
 
4:45 PM
(assuming texture is the correct word)
@JasonBerkan Pizza is weird
 
@JasonBerkan We have to be careful that anything we give my son isn't too hot because if he touches it and it's too hot there's no hope of getting him to touch it with his hands again. He will still eat it, but we have to hand-feed it to him.
 
Ash
@Kevin yep
 
Even after it's well cooled off, he'll just stare at it and cry rather than touch it again.
 
@InvaderSkoodge I have a picture of one of my kid eating corn on the cob like he's bobbing for apples. It was too hot to touch.
 
And by hot of course I mean warm; we wouldn't give him anything that can burn him.
 
4:46 PM
@Kevin I mean, when I do a grilled cheese the texture is already heterogenous (crispy outside, soft interior bread and cheese, crunchy pickles), so...
 
@ToxicFrog hmm, it's more variation between bites that sets me off?
Because yeah molten cheese isn't crunchy =p
 
Ash
Dear Inbox I know you're going away in two weeks please stop telling me every time I open the app
 
Solution: Fry the cheese instead of melting it between the bread so the bread and cheese are both crunchy.
Fried cheese is unbelievable.
 
I'm apparently unable to type today. That is a lot of spelling errors.
 
Ash
@InvaderSkoodge This is making me think of making a sandwich with the breaded cheese from Metro Restaurant that I had with @ToxicFrog et al at one point.
(which was not crunchy cheese but it was fried cheese.)
 
4:50 PM
@Ash oh noooooooo that would be dangerously good but also probably kill me
 
Ash
(Although now I am thinking like a parmesan crisp sandwich, I don't know how well that would work
 
(that was a fantastic lunch, though)
 
Ash
@ToxicFrog yeah it would be a delicious way to go out, no?
@ToxicFrog It was! The company was pretty fantastic too ;)

5:33 PM
I just hope this rush for all these cloud gaming services doesn't mean increased fragmentation of access to games and also doesn't mean that downloadable/offline stuff stops being an option
 
@Ash On the flip side, a cloud gaming service can actually makes games more affordable for those with access to internet, but who are unable to afford a good PC or gaming console.
There's lots of folks with shitty internet or no internet, for a variety of reasons, but there's also a lot of folks that can get good internet but then can't afford a gaming console.
Although I personally have no interest in cloud gaming.
 
Ash
@Wipqozn yeah, it's a hard balance, to make sure you're getting both groups
 
@Wipqozn I've tried that with PS Now on my PC. It failed miserably
A very limited selection of games, poor framerate and resolution, and too much lag to make the game playable
 
5:56 PM
@BunsGlazing I'm concerned about input lag on these kinds of things.
 
@Ash I think the issue is looking for a one size fits all solution. Cloud gaming can exist without traditional hardware going away. At the very least I don't see cloud gaming becoming the only path forward for quite a while, if ever. Any input lag is a no go for competitive multiplayer, and way too much of the US has shitty internet that would equate to lost business.
 
@InvaderSkoodge same, i'm not sure how they can overcome speed of light limitations
it's always going to be faster to input to a box a few feet away as opposed to tens or hundreds of miles away in a datacenter
 
@GodEmperorDune Right. Even if they essentially eliminate network lag by literally having all the players on the same server, there's still going to be input lag.
 
@GodEmperorDune You just increase the speed of light, duh.
 
@GodEmperorDune Speed of light isn't that bad, in terms of human perception. A mile is a few microseconds. A thousand miles is a few thousand milliseconds. Which is still well under human perceivable reaction time
 
@murgatroid99 A few thousand milliseconds is a few seconds.
Did you mean a few thousand microseconds?
 
Unity is epicstore right?
 
@InvaderSkoodge Right, I mixed up what I was saying. A thousand miles is a few milliseconds
 
@Moacir Unity is platform-agnostic, I think?
 
I wonder how pricing is going to work for Stadia.
 
6:06 PM
@Yuuki Wasnt there something that if you publish on epic store you dont have to pay for unity resources?
 
@InvaderSkoodge same
 
@Moacir I think you might be talking about the Unreal Engine?
 
@Yuuki Yep. Got them mixed up
 
Ash
@Wipqozn Yeah, agreed
@InvaderSkoodge I am curious about that too
 
I think you could reasonably render at 30FPS on a cloud service like this, which means 33ms to process and render a frame. So even if the nearest datacenter is 2000 miles away, the server still has almost as much time to process a frame as a local computer would at 60FPS.

Q: Need a give command for custom diamond sword

caseylanecalhounI need a /give command to obtain a diamond sword with enchantments, a name, and a description of the sword. Can you give me a command? Making a adventure map in MCPE.

 
If I had to go off the video alone, I would have no idea what Stadia is.
 
@Yuuki I think it's a flying type Pokémon
 
@Wipqozn Maybe you're thinking of Staravia?
 
@InvaderSkoodge no that's the google streaming game thing
 
6:25 PM
@InvaderSkoodge Oh that's exactly what I'm thinking of. I'm just being HILARIOUS.
Also I really like that Pokémon
Pidgey is a frequent part of my parties, and starvia was the Pidgey of that game
 
Talonflame was the strongest Pidgey up until they nerfed Gale Wings.
 
Never heard of it
Oh Pokémon x
I never finished that.
I think I had one of those in my party...
 
pokemon x was a good game and I hope character customization is as good in sword and shield as it was in that gen

Ugh, hearing old people talk about Youtube and how it should just hire more humans to do manual content verification is just idiotic. And then when you tell them Youtube would have to hire over 30,000 people in order to do so who speak pretty much every language in the world in the right proportions, they say Youtube should restrict uploads so they can manage it. THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS DAD
 
Ash
It's not how it works, but....could it? Should it?
(Okay no maknig humans look at hte garbage of the internet is a bad idea but so is pure computer verification)
 
@Ash There's also the problem where people actually get affected by the tripe they have to review, like people who genuinely get convinced by some of the conspiracy theories on Youtube because they need to watch that content
 
Ash
@Nzall nods among other things like PTSD and burnout and stuff, for sure
 
yeah and the working conditions on top of that are apparently Fun
for values of fun meaning "You're a contractor with a quota and an accuracy score and if either of those fall below targets you're in danger of losing your job where you get paid too little to watch the worst content on the internet all day"

@SepiaLazers I think the answer is no tag right now?
 
Ash
@SepiaLazers ....fine, delete it while I am writing you a nice answer :(
 
@Ash I never wanted your green checkmark in the first place! *runs off in tears*
 
Ash
that's me right now yes how did you know
 
@SepiaLazers Is a tag without a question even a tag at all?
 
7:04 PM
(technically, yes, but we can't exactly create it without having a question first (I mean we can but that'd be an incredibly stupid edit then revert on some unrelated question))
 
Feels like the first day of ‘Pool.
(Disney-Fox deal closed today, for context)
 
Ash
@Wrigglenite At least they deleted it - we'd end up closing it.
 
7:34 PM
Wait
Now fox is owned by disney?
 
@Moacir yep
 
Apparently
 
So now Disney also owns Simpsons
And Futurama, And Family Guy, And Bones
 
Fox in its entirety or just 20th Century Fox?
> Assets such as the Fox television network, Fox Television Stations, and Fox News Channel spun off into a new company called Fox Corporation
I imagine that Disney didn't particularly want the Fox News Channel in the first place.
 
Ash
I'd not want it, if I were them
 
Although it's interesting that Disney won't have the Fox TV network but will have the IPs that appear on the Fox TV network.
 
so apparently, the TV shows still belong to Rupert Murdoch
 
Ah, never mind.
Yeah, I was wondering about that because Disney owns ABC.
 
@Ash this is the key question imo

I want to copy my saved games from the cards to the PC, either directly, or via the PS3. What kind of PS2 card reader should I get? I expect that ebay's $5 gamepad adapters won't work. I'm re...

 
@Nzall As much as I agree that hiring that many humans to verify content would be unreasonable (and likely cruel to said humans for reasons already mentioned here).

The number of creators who are just one malicious actor away from having their livelihoods demolished, while only the Uber-popular have any immediate means of having their channels restored is disheartening.

PausePauseI finished the game a little while back and earned the "good" ending in which you This ending affects the pause menu in a way I find distracting and unrewarding.

Introducing #Stadia, an all-new way to play from Google. Coming in 2019 → http://goo.gl/jCshXn #GDC19 https://t.co/UQvD3m4jkJ
skeptical, not just because of internet connection charges (because even if streaming might be "free" now, so was SMS when it first appeared) but because i don't see this as being a free service so it's more giving google money for permission to their games, games that they can take down when they want
ie. netflix for games
