@Unionhawk Man, wildy chaos altar is awesome
 
2:25 AM
lmao
Got pked near the end of a trip
Used protect item
My 4 bones remaining were protected, so all the pker got was a dwarven rock cake and a games necklace with a single charge
 
3:08 AM
rock cake is untradeable and is therefore destroyed on death by player above 20 wilderness
 
@Unionhawk Well that's even better
All they got was a games necklace with a single charge
Unfortunately I can't be arsed to go get another so now I just have to go kick the Chaos Fanatic
Which is more fun tbh
Or if I'm lucky a pker logs in as I run out of bones
 
you can also pick up the wine of Zamorak
it'll do rock cake type damage except it'll actually kill you
 
Yeah, I did that once
 
3:25 AM
Lol another devotee just used me to finish himself off
There we go, 65 prayer

6:18 AM
@SaintWacko phrasing?
 
7:07 AM
pcgamer.com/uk/new-world-invincibility-exploit Someone found an invincibility exploit for New World that you can trigger by switching to windowed mode and then dragging the window around

12:47 PM
Well, effective Nov 1st, I'll be required to come into the office at least 3 days a week.
 
Effective nov 1st I'm changing jobs to one that's fully remote
 
1:31 PM
That is something that will be the very interesting consequence to covid. How much offices will be not renewed because the team went full remote?
was seeing an old coworker that now has his own business put the office on facebook marketplace to pass it to someone else... the rent on his office was 3k a month
the calculation is pretty easy if you basically would save the equivalent of the salary of one employee by not having an office
 
I have no idea if they ever had an office, but yeah it seems way more common now
 
@Fredy31 yeah, and it's not just rent that's relevant here: the company would also save at least some money on all those little expenses that come with a fully functional office, like coffee for all employees, stationery, janitorial services, electricity, water, gas, etc
 
1:48 PM
@Nzall Yeah, there are all that. I guess running an office might be more 4-5k a month
 
2:13 PM
I'm going to have to try watching Cowboy Bebop again aren't I?
 
@Fredy31 I don't have the exact numbers, but my employer probably pays well over $10k a month for rent (which probably includes at least some of the utilities)
 
@Nzall Watt da flock. I guess that would mean health is managed... client side?
if modifying the client just suddenly makes you invincible
I'm no pro in building MMOs... but wouldn't having your health client side make it very easy to hack?
Every headline about New World makes it sound like that MMO was made by fucking amateurs, not one of the biggest companies on the planet
 
@Fredy31 No, it appears to be that the NW client pauses when it's moved, which is something relatively normal for games, but usually the client isn't authoritative in multiplayer games
 
@MBraedley Depends on the team size, my excoworker's team was maybe 10-15?
@Nzall Oh ok so its while you move the window that you are invincible
but still, that would mean that the server checks if the window is unresponsive before giving you damage?
makes not much sense

Q: Screenshot of Week #50 - Halloween

Timmy JimHello and welcome to the 50th edition of the Screenshot of the Week! It's been almost two years since we started this community event, and this week marks a significant milestone! To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! Morgan's submission of Mario looking a bit "dank"

 
Dbrand pokes Sony regarding PS5 faceplates, Sony Hammers back with C&D order. Dband plans on suing
@SaintWacko what do you mean by released a replacement? as in they've changed names again?
 
What you gonna do? Sue Me?
*sony sues*

3:20 PM
@Memor-X I just read an article this morning that they had made their own plates design and had it back in their shop
 
@SaintWacko just checked the site now, yeh the site is back. i wonder what's changed or if they are sticking to their guns
 
@Memor-X So apparently the old ones were directly based off the PS5 plates
The new ones are their own design
 
i don't see how they are different - dbrand.com/shop/special-edition/ps5
 
all that with the plates on the PS5, how they are easily removable, Its very probable that it was a concept that was built in, those customisable plates. The PS5 was designed to have the possibility to do so.

But at the last minute, a guy on the board that what he says goes said 'No.' And so no customisable plates even if all the groundwork is done
 
@Memor-X I'm not sure either, just going off what I read in the article
It was the first I had heard of it lol
 
3:27 PM
Would be very weird that they created those plates in a way that is easlily switchable and woops, they slap down anybody that tries to capitalise on it, and dont do it themselves, and they don't do it for no reason at all
 
I feel like I should go back through for more missile tanks lol
 
@Unionhawk through what? Metroid Dread?
 
I can get through Raven Beak phase 1 with full health and missiles but I just ran out in phase 2
Yep
 
Based on the speedrun, I think regular shots are pretty effective in phase 2, also there are way more counter opportunities than I realised
 
wait I can just use my beam in phase 2
 
3:33 PM
Yeah he's not glowing any more
Actually they might have been charge shots, but I think they were regular
 
Oi
Not all of us have beaten it yet
 
Spoiler alert, the boss has phases
 
3:59 PM
that guy who shoots you with a giant beam at the beginning of the game? you fight him
my dude may as well have been wearing a nametag that said "hello my name is: the final boss of this video game"
anyway, cleaned up some stuff and I now have slightly more missiles
approximately 26 more
 
Luckily the movement is good so it's pretty fun to 100% it
 
I wish there was a better button to put speed booster on because I don't like it on L3 but I can't think of any other good remap
 
I'm not sure why it's not automatic like other games though
 
4:19 PM
In SM it was on a separate button because you had three speeds: jogging, running (with speed boost held down) and boosted (after the speed boost kicks in when you've been running for a bit)
And there were definitely jumps that were easier to make without running
 
 
1 hour later…
5:31 PM
hmm
I have a furniture related emergency that I don't quite know how to solve while I wait for my replacement hardware order to finish
(the bracket for my bed's center support beam broke, but IKEA was able to order a new set for me but they said it could take a week)
 
5:48 PM
I'm still proud of this pun
 
temporary solution achieved
I hate this
but I don't have a better idea that doesn't involve like, disassembling the frame or sleeping in the living room
 
6:06 PM
you will have a lot of fun pulling the mattress out of the base when you have to build the end of the setup
 
It's foam so it should be fine
It flexes
It started its life inside a box
 
6:40 PM
I'd be more concerned about the metal brackets on the sides. I would bump into those all the time
 
@Unionhawk I don't know if you live alone or not but moving the mattress to another room temporarily and sleeping on the floor could be better.
You're definitely less likely to injure yourself getting in/out of bed that way.
My bed collapsed one too many times (after the first failure it was never the same) and I wound up just throwing it out and putting the mattress straight on the floor.
Beds are overrated.
 
I don't really have another room with adequate space
lol
 
Also good luck getting the fitted sheet on.
 
7:01 PM
@Unionhawk do you have a lumber store nearby?
or something esle that sells boards that fit between that
 
 
2 hours later…
8:49 PM
@Ronan oh it is regular shots same as the other mawkin fights
that's phase 2 down aaand dead
metroid dead lol
 
I didn't realise that was a regular mawkin thing, does it do more damage against all of them?
 
I don't think it does more damage as much as it does any damage vs normal bosses
and you can shoot regular shots fast
 
Ah yeah that makes sense
 
the speedrun seems to use ice missiles for phase 2 mainly
 
 
3 hours later…
11:49 PM
@Unionhawk I am this close to blocking wyrms
I swear I get them every other task and they're so slow and boring
