Q: PS4 controller turns off upon sign in

user3200833So my controller will turn and stay on fine, but as soon as I choose an account to sign in as, the controller turns off. It will also turn off if I press the PlayStation button. Basically it functions as a normal controller until I try to sign in, then it turns off automatically. Also, if it has ...

Q: How should I spend energy credits?

KevinWhen playing Stellaris, I often find myself with a lot of energy credits. The most obvious way to spend them is to run the economy at a deficit for a few months, but it's not clear to me how I can safely and reversibly do this, or what advantages it would give me. Also, the game constantly nags...

Hey there! So... Kind of random question, but where would you go to ask a question about deciphering a constructed language in a video game? I tried Linguistics to no avail, and I'm having a really hard time collecting more data as it is.
 
@Pleiades What game is it?
 
Okami. I think I'm the first one to really even find this, tbh.
 
Ash
1:16 AM
@Pleiades We miiiiight be able to help, but often these things don't have a "real" or legit or like....dev-confirmed or whatever answer
 
I'm kind of looking more for someone to help me go over what I have found and make sure I'm not just driving myself insane
 
Ash
So chances are you probably won't get a lot of help, and it might get closed if it is just opinion/discussion because that's not really what we do
 
Crud. I can't really find a forum or anywhere else for this too... Shoot
 
@Pleiades You might find someone in this chat room, but it's usually fairly quiet in here on Saturday nights.
 
True. Why hang out in chat rooms when you can play video games? xD
I might try again at a different time then. Thanks for hearing me out though, guys!
 
Ash

@Pleiades No problem :) Feel free to poke back in for other opinions on the matter, too :)

Q: can i get the grey cowl of nocturnal in any of the dlc's?

nightmare can someone please just answer my question without any difficult answers I'm kinda exhausted from searching to see if I can and I still haven't gotten an answer can I get it in the dlc or not

 
@Pleiades Most games just use a simple English substitution cipher.
So frequency analysis is probably the simplest method.

@Wipqozn Longer than a 20s clip. TLDW
 
> Lauren Susan Green is the Chief Religion Correspondent for the Fox News Channel
 
@Sterno She basically asks a Muslim author why he feels he, as a Muslim, can write about the life of Jesus Christ.
 
@Fluttershy to which he says "I have a PhD in religious studies", and gives all of his credentials, to which she follows up with "stop dodging the question"
 
Only people who personally met Jesus should be able to write about him.
 
2:37 AM
also near the end she claims he's lying to folks and claiming to not be muslim,a nd he's like "what", pointing out that almost every media interview abouit his book mentions this, and that it's on the second page of his book, at which point she just continues to press her point of... I don't know, she's a racist
 
She sounds like an idiot, but I'm unclear from your summary where racism comes into it
 
well racism isn't the right word, but I only use that because I'm not sure the right word for her type of bigotry
 
Sometimes you're just an idiot without being an -ist
 
@Sterno because it's obvious she thinks this guy is an unqualified hack who goes around lying to people based solely on his faith
 
isn't or is?
 
2:40 AM
is
 
your mom is
 
"WAIT I DIDNT THINK YOU BELIEVED IN JESUS 🤔"
(that's an assumed tldw)
 
Ash
I like how many times he gives her the academic shut down fuck you sort of response
 
The real question is why @Wipqozn watched a 10 minute clip from Fox News.
 
Ash
like what the hell, lady
 
2:45 AM
@Ash It's pretty disgusting
Near the end she accuses him of being unqualified to write about Christinaity due to being muslim
and also that she obviously thinks being muslim means you hate christianity, or something?
since Muslim == Has a strong anti-christiian bias?
@Sterno Because I hate myself
 
@Fluttershy oh this is reza aslan from years ago
 
@GodEmperorDune yeah it's old
 
i've met him at a book signing, he's nice
 
I only just now found it
 
he signed my copy of zealot
@Wipqozn it went viral when it actually happened

hardware recs i would assume the same but askers i would expect need to explain why they can't read the recommended system requirements that most games detail....which they would do here anyway

uh oh
I forgot that my MSDN expired
 
@arda is this bad?
 
@djsmiley2k if microsoft paid for it, it's not bad. If they made me pay it, then yes, it is bad.
 
why would they pay for it? do they have your payment details?
 
@djsmiley2k generally subscription = paid and sometimes unless you tell them not to some services automatically renew the subscription and charge your card
 
@Memor-X yup, but @arda is a minor
 
11:49 AM
@djsmiley2k They do, though it's a prepaid, lol.
And it's expired too, extra lol.
Though well, invoice says 0.00TRY
Crisis averted.
 
@djsmiley2k you can easily fake your age on the internet and Australia Post sells Prepaid Visa Cards on the internet which i assume they ship too.
 
@Memor-X at which point he's not legally able to pay, and MS can't actually come after him for not paying.
 
my ms age is set at 16
 
if they're stupid enough to accept prepaid cards..
@arda yeah my slashdot age is 4002
Companies need to learn ' don't believe everything you read on the internet'
 
@djsmiley2k the Visa Prepaid cards work like any other debit card so unless there is a way to tell the difference via the Card Number i doubt they can tell.
and in the end it's money Microsoft gets, so long as they dont have to give it back who cares how old the kid is
same mentality used in freemium games
 
11:58 AM
hmmmmm
welp here the sortcode ties to a physical bank
so i'd suggest that the prepaid cards all have a sort code of some 'non-existant' one
I did try to google it but couldn't find anything instantly

The USA could really benefit from a less shit system. That way right leaning people could get a right party that isn't also a crazy ass party.
 
even in the year 2015
we had "teach the controversy"
 
Canada used to have that, from what I understand, but then I guess our crazy right party merged with the sane right party before I could vote. That's what I've heard on the internet anyways.
@badp Can we still blame 2016?
 
Don't think so, this predates 2015 even I think
 
Our conservatives aren't as bad as the repubs, but holy fuck did Harper ever want to destroy climate science during his time in office
@KevinvanderVelden yeah but 2016 may have impacted the past too

True
 
not even the fucking POPE is a creationist
 
Most are funded by the oil industry
@badp Accurate
 
@Unionhawk Yes
 
Creationism seems very popular in the US, while here in Germany even the most religious people generally think it's a crazy idea. And climate change is a much more subtle issue than creationism
 
what is even going on, Merica
how can you hope to convince a creationist of anything
at all
ever
 
4:47 PM
@badp I mean, people do change their minds, no matter their beliefs
 
@badp I feel we should just take a page from the catholic's book. Inquisition
 
I mean, Catholics believe in evolution, but others don't necessarily
 
@Wipqozn but what sort of argument will it take
 
Ash
@badp um... Excuse me. I believe in creation but I also believe in science.
 
@Unionhawk Yeah dind't the church already come out and say Evolution is real, but that it was guided by god?
 
4:48 PM
@Unionhawk that first bit is false, plenty of catholics ignore what the pope says
 
I thought that it was a thing
 
@Unionhawk You'll have a hard time finding a protestant in Germany that is a creationists. It's not just catholics
 
Ash
You are painting a lot of people with a very wide and unfair brush.
 
(which boggles my mind)
 
@Ash I think the intended brush width here is "young earth creationists"
 
4:49 PM
@Ash so you think the universe was literally made in 144 hours some ten thousand years ago, and dismiss any scientific finding of things older than that
 
@Ash creationist is basically someone who does not believe in evolution. Not someone who believes god created things in some manner
 
"world is only 6000 years old and also evolution never happened because that's not what it says"
 
Ash
@Unionhawk then that should be clarified
 
afaik "creationism" == "the Genesis literally happened"
 
Ash
Because I tend to hear that word used as "anyone who believes Divine creation was a thing"
 
4:50 PM
@badp That is also the only used definition I've seen
 
@Ash the pope is not a creationist; he just believes the big bang requires a God to initiate it
 
Ash
Sorry. I just get irritable sometimes. My apologies. goes back to reading and pedicure and things of that ilk
 
RIP
 
@Ash I am speaking in inflammatory tones, so I can hardly blame you
 
but believing in the literal Genesis requires you to dismiss so much of our scientific findings that I can't even
can we rebrand "red-pilling" as "vaccination against facts"
 
Yes
 
'COZ I WANNA BE AN ANTI-VAXXER TOO IF YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING
@Unionhawk and if you don't then I'm not an anti-vaxxer
 
got my latest vaccination two weeks ago
tetanus
 
4:55 PM
That doesn't make that sentence/joke not incredibly dumb
 
did you renew your tetanus vaccination
 
Yes
 
it only lasts 10 years.
or 5 depending who you ask.
 
I'll get it if and when I get a wound that's dirty from stuff
 
I think BSA requires me to do annually or 2 years or something
 
4:56 PM
Because, you know, at 5 incidents per year in this country
 
I forget
 
@KevinvanderVelden yes the tetanus vaccine will also work in post
@KevinvanderVelden that is not how vaccines work
there are very few incidents BECAUSE of the vaccines
 
@badp It's not transmissible between humans
So in this case: Yes that is how vaccines work
 
kk
I dunno it was like €8
 
Ash
@badp I kinda always go "well, it says He did the thing but the how isn't laid out, and the Bible talks a lot about how time works differently for Him than we perceive it so it works out"
 
4:58 PM
that's about 48,585£ or $5,585,958 in the US
 
@KevinvanderVelden Also "ur face is a vaccine"
 
@Ash I thought the bible was fairly specific... if self-contradictionary
Or however you spell that word
 
@Ash Yes

@KevinvanderVelden it's basically like "he made a thing and then another thing and some other stuff" when it comes to most stuff
