@GnomeSlice "Relationship falling apart due to spouse playing too much Mario Kart and neglecting their responsibilities. As a solution we'll make both of them play Mario Kart all weekend and ignore everything else."
@Elise at least it's better than "Resolve your marital argument with a match of Smash"
@Memor-X monopoly 🤔
@Elise naaa, that takes too long
@Memor-X you're there for the weekend, it can't take that long
@Elise ahhh, in that case then yeh. Smash is for shorter things
unless it's an argument of who gets to play as Waluigi
12:26 AM

DAG Grim SlayerOk, so when I run a game on the VBA GX emulator for the Gamecube it runs really slow how can I fix this.

12:59 AM
Valve is going to appeal but lets not forget
> it’s notable that UFC-Que Choisir scored this victory, and it could very well lead to changes on Valve’s platform. A 2014 Australian court ruling, for example, led to Steam’s current refund policy.
it was both Australia and England if i recall
now on the surface this could fuck with indies, but at the same time Valve would be in control
@Memor-X Oh my this certainly could cause some waves
Valve could make it so a portion of resells still go to the developers/publishers, something the AAA would love to be the case
Has anyone really approached the concept of reselling licenses to digital goods?
@RedRiderX you mean in a way that's not shitty *looks at G2A*
other then something like G2A which is more abusing a loophole of redemption
rather then a real transfer of rights after someone's used the product
1:04 AM
@RedRiderX i don't believe so, but it is something that's going to have to be worked on if we move more to digital products and services
Sharing digital goods is of course possible with DRM free products, but even then, that use case usually isn't explicitly allowed legally.
I don't even know how you start to approach a framework for selling "used" digital goods.
I feel like the definition of "used" just breaks down at that point.
@RedRiderX for sure since when you use a physical product there is some wear and that brings the price down, when you download a digital product your getting it created as new every time
And short of some bulletproof DRM scheme, how do you even guarantee the original owner doesn't still have a copy after purchase.
@RedRiderX i suppose the same way how you can't guarantee that with a physical game or a poster the original owner didn't just copy it
and then there's Epic. if Valve has to do this you can see other online systems having to do it to and while most probably don't give a shit how Origin or uPlay or Bethesda will do it, Epic is trying to be the messiah of gaming
What does resell a game even mean when you consider something like fortnite?
Does this mean you reselling accounts is legally protected?
1:15 AM
oh yeh i didn't think of Online games like that which generally make it apart of the ToS or EULA that you can't re-sell your account. but at the same time you can't sigh your rights away
I assume platform holders would try to keep microtransactions out of the reselling equation as they are with physical games.
On some level all these problems exist now for platform holders, so I guess they'll find new ways to mitigate them.
But what I really can't fathom is what effect this would have on the economy of selling digital games
Would the floor fall through on the market?
@RedRiderX what about DLC? White Knight Chronicles came with a pass which comes free with a new game that'll let you manage your village, if you get it second hand you have to buy it as DLC
Would Steam sales just not be a thing anymore?
Would it be all about dinging you for DLC when you buy a used game?
@Memor-X I should have DLC in that sentence yeah
@RedRiderX well you said Microtransactions so it would but currency and loot boxes is one thing, there's is legit DLC. i can see some publishes *cough*EA*cough* just selling a Demo for $5 and then selling the rest of the game as DLC and then argue you can't re-sell DLC
Would even more games go FTP, so there's no game to resell?

TIL California's largest lake by surface area was created by accident
The Salton Sea is a shallow, saline, endorheic rift lake located directly on the San Andreas Fault, predominantly in the U.S. state of California's Imperial and Coachella valleys. The lake occupies the lowest elevations of the Salton Sink in the Colorado Desert of Imperial and Riverside counties in Southern California. Its surface is 236.0 ft (71.9 m) below sea level as of January 2018. The deepest point of the sea is 5 ft (1.5 m) higher than the lowest point of Death Valley. The sea is fed by the New, Whitewater, and Alamo rivers, as well as agricultural runoff, drainage systems, and creeks. Over...

Q: How to disable night?

Kenny EvittHow can I disable night, i.e. the night portion of the day/night cycle? I'd like to play in eternal daylight. I didn't notice any relevant settings when creating a new game and I'd like to avoid mods if possible.

Q: Why does grass look terrible

Andrew LeeI'm making a modpack designed to make Minecraft look as good as possible. Shaders, Optifine, No Cubes, the works.

Q: Destroy all farms or not ? (modern times)

TristanI was wondering if it's ok to destroy all farms at once when you are asked to when bio farm are available or do you need a special strategy to do it (like destroying half food farms and replace them, then destroying the other half after the bio farm is really producing) ?

@Wipqozn I'm thinking about this too hard
In order for people to die, people need to be born
So shouldn't they promote healthy lifestyles and population growth?

@Wrigglenite maybe their job is total extermination

Q: Using Mouse as Wiimote IR in Cemu Emulator

MegadarderyIf anyone is familiar with the Cemu Emulator, it is a Wii U Emulator, and a pretty decent one at that. Similar to Dolphin, it allows emulating the console's controllers, as in, you can emulate the Gamepad, the Pro Controller, and the Wiimote... However, unlike Dolphin, Cemu does not fully emulate...

Q: With the new Minecraft launcher, is there a way to change the .minecraft folder without manually specifying the Java path for every profile?

cowgodI am aware of the --workDir command line option, and I am using it to change the location of the .minecraft folder. However, any profile I try to launch does not find the javaw.exe file (which is found in the workDir folder, as it should be in runtime\jre-x64\bin\javaw.exe). It throws the follo...

Q: Can I see the total amount of my crafting materials?

user598527The game seems to display * when the amount of material exceeds 999 in the blacksmith's crafting menu. I don't have any estimate for the amount of arcane dust I have (on the middle; I've always mainly disenhanced magical items). Are the crafting materials also listed elsewhere and in full?
