Game dev/TiTS Bitching Thread Three: Electric Boogalee lance##m3y78z 04/29/2020 (Wed) 01:20:05 No.4
Hi, welcome to The New New Thread. Same as The Old and Old Old Threads! This is a thread allegedly for discussing TiTS and other games, I guess. And developing games. And stuff. Despite this being a TiTS thread in name (for historical purposes), barely anyone here plays TiTS. For further information on the game, I recommend you go here to ask. https://forum.fenoxo.com/forums/trials-in-tainted-space.8/ For reasons of how long this thread's existed and how much fen's fucked up everything he's touched, there's a good chance the thread will have barely anything to do with fenoxo and his hugbox at any given point.

That said, I make mobile builds and desktop builds from source code when I can (and/or feel like it), and redistribute the premade builds when I can access them. I mirror them here. I am also, to my knowledge, the only person making iOS builds for TiTS nowadays. https://dragontamer8740.gitlab.io/faq/links.html
>>992 It's great to see you again. I thought I'd lost all contact. Kepass2 is where the issues I mentioned above started. If you ever install KeepassX or KeepassXC on Linux, it won't open that database (maybe compatibility has improved over the years). If you only ever use Windows and Android, then I guess this isn't much of a concern. When I set people up with Windows password managers these days, I always just give them Bitwarden. It's been audited, and most people with phones aren't paranoid enough to worry about the sync service. A more paranoid person could also self host it, but if you're on Windows and Android, might as well just install the app and use their sync service. If you're happy with Keepass though, then great. Unfortunately I can't offer much about it, since I just use pass. From a forensics standpoint, Keepass stands out as being installed on the system, and it stores the location of the last database you opened. Other than that, it's not bad software though.
>>993 Yeah I did lose contact with you again. There's portable Keepass and yeah it does open my last database but it's funny, the entire program is 6MB but its plugins that do very simple things are 33MB. The feature set is what gets me now, and sadly I don't think I'll be moving from windows. I'm just too autistic in the wrong way.
>>994 Lance's Git link in the op always has a link to our IRC channel and current imageboard. I plan on being on IRC more once I get things setup the way I'd like, but it's pretty dead despite the idling. Should anon.cafe ever disappear, I'm sure the link will be updated. Though the last time the topic came up, it sounded like flashmaster might be leaving. Who knows what's in store for /f/.
Hello friends, long time no see. Nice to see new blood around here. I'll take a temporary name since that's the norm around here. It's really sad to see everyone you love taken over by people that just seek to ruin it, isn't it? I've been using firefox since version 0.5 I think back when it was called Firebird. I remember how great it was compared to what we were using before. When you had to keep both Netscape and IE around to view every page you needed during you daily browsing. The freedom Firefox gave to the end user through XUL and plug-ins was really something. I'm sad it has become so bloated and has been taken over by "community advocates" that don't know how to code. The underlying code of Firefox hasn't improved in many years and they're pretty much living off Google money. Google has become just like Mircosoft of old where they embrace projects and kill them off from the inside. It's worries me a lot that nearly every browser is now Chrome with a skin. If the firefox project dies there will be nothing else left to use. I can't really recommend furryfox because I don't trust the project to patch exploits quickly enough. The leader of the project is so anal about his trademarks that he's manged to sour relations with OpenBSD. He's in it for personal fame and not for the right reasons.
>>949 Wait for musk to get starlink up, I suppose? >>958 They might not be for you, possibly looking for illegal grow fields nearby? Things seem to be turning around on the internet front, I've been seeing some new sites popping up that are very promising. Some of the old groups are getting back together. If everything follows the cycle then 2021/2022 should see a tech resurgence. Discord needs a knife in its eye so something better can come along, I didn't realize that most eyeballs were concentrated there for namefag recognition and mutual masturbation. Decentralized distributed uncensorable anonymous text and rich content sharing needs to be a development priority. No more accounts, we need nothing like that in the age of mass surveillance. We might not have too long before the lights go out, considering the current global political situation, but events can always surprise us.
>>996 > back when it was called Firebird Cool. I never knew that. I've wondered more than once why the name Firefox was chosen. I jumped ship to Furry Meme when Cuckzilla killed XUL. I'm vaguely familiar with controversy you mentioned, but I've been fairly happy with it in the ~3yrs now. Treestyle tabs was pretty important to me, and ports of basically every add-on I care much about is available in PM. >>997 >Decentralized distributed uncensorable anonymous text and rich content sharing needs to be a development priority. this.
I have completed my Alpine Linux setup script (aside from some quality of life things). Not only does it handle the installation of all my packages from cache and their configs, but I even managed to automate my Firefox setup with a policies.json (install addons, user.js, etc). The script checks which computer it's being run on, so it can tailor certain configs to each one (eg; HiDPI on the XPS). All in all, Alpine is a fantastic distro. My only criticism is that it uses musl instead of glibc, which while excellent from a security standpoint, means that there are some things that will never be available through the package manager. I will look into porting Dwarf Fortress and CCDDA, but proprietary things are totally out (not really important). Also the documentation isn't great. It would be nice if this kind of setup could be achieved through Void or similar, but even if another distro offered a diskless setup, it would likely use far too much ram to be usable.
>>999 would this help out any with musl, gunship? https://code.foxkit.us/adelie/gcompat
>http://techrights.org/2020/09/03/linus-debconf-linusgate/ >"Debian should make a public statement that Linus will not be welcome at Debian events in future." I remember fondly when people couldn't fathom how CoCs and similar idpol crap would ruin everything. I'm sure it won't be long before I hear "Yeah Linux and Free Software were destroyed but so what, what a meaningless thing to be mad about." >>1000 Possibly, though it seems most people just use a chroot environment. The wiki has some useful information about glibc, I just haven't had a reason to put any of it into practice yet.
>>1001 >Ryan, who recently witnessed Fedora banning longtime contributors (technical people who actually love and use GNU/Linux), said that the CoC “gets enforced by a lot of nasty trolls who somehow “develop” Fedora from Macs and Edge on Windows 10.” (The enforcers do not even use GNU/Linux themselves!) pretty much says it all right there imo.

>>1002 Reminds me of the many FreeBSD developers that run Macs (and we know what their 'community' consists of). The script is the same wherever they go. I am hopeful that nothing comes of this, considering that the emails leaked so far are a few years old. But they are just now coming to light, and who knows if the pronoun people will force this into yet another scandal.

>7 degrees warmer than today >they're even working at web 3.0 gaslighting eternal shifting frame of reference shit for the temperature
>>1006 Ministry Of Truth hard at work, as usual. :^)
>>1006 I sure would like an alternative but I'm afraid of my entire phone imploding and taking my left hand with it because I dare tamper with the eternal gapps suite. And by alternative I mean just wiping it all out but it doesn't help having a niche meme phone made by a Canadian keyboard and mouse company.
>>1008 That was the main problem with 1984 IMO. It should've ended with a good old Deus Vult uprising and all the goblins being killed.
>>1010 I thought it to be funny how a story placed in England has it's citizenry's teeth falling out.
>>1011 Carb heavy diets, low protein, low exercise, low sunlight, heavy alcohol intake. English ingredient quality is generally good but the end products are shit because the recipes are shit. Leads to their shit health. Same reason why a lot of nips have bad teeth. Soft food that's almost all carbs. Feed your kids tough steaks.
>>1001 Those email messages were from 2014 and leaked this year. It's nothing new. I don't think Linus got banned from the last 6 years' events, either. They were just stupid people's stupid opinions.
Unrelated, but I'm compiling a kernel for three architectures right now. Mostly just because I feel like it, but also I'm wondering if I can make my single-core powerbook perform any better.
>>876 Thanks to the thread, and especially gunship, for all the wisdom you guvnahs have given me, tech-wise and otherwise haha :^). I'm working on embedded coding project right now with /robowaifu/, and I hope it's about to land me an important gig. Thanks for helping me to see just how important C++ truly is when you appreciate the finer deets of it's C heritage heh :^)

>>1013 >They were just stupid people's stupid opinions. Linus, well known for being an absolute asshole that could never function within a CoC, and had gone nearly two decades without one, would suddenly add such a CoC to linux just a few years later. I can't imagine being surrounded so thoroughly by over socialized people, that I would view their behavior as individuals instead of an easily identifiable group. >>1015 Thanks, I wish you the best of luck on that project. Sounds kind of like a farewell post.

>>1016 I just generally see stereotyping's dangers and try to avoid labelling people until it's pretty much impossible to find a rational defense for them. There sure are a lot of mentally ill people in the tech industry though.
>>1016 Still doing some prelims atm, but I've managed to line up a few resources to help with the effort, so It's encouraging. >Sounds kind of like a farewell post. Heh not intentionally. But honestly, no one is promised tomorrow. Carpe that old Diem right? Especially with loved-ones and friends.
>>1021 Should clarify: A2O was a few days ago. A2I was a few months ago.
How is the waifubot project coming along? Will I be able to own one within the next few years? I keep seeing news about sex bots. I know the AI is probably a way off but how close are we to one being able to do basic tasks? I just need one that can cook, clean, and fuck.

>>1025 I was wondering what you were talking about until I glanced at some newspapers. It seems like even the media couldn't help her stay relevant, seeing as how even the more liberal people I know haven't so much as spoken a word of her. I'd wonder who will end up replacing her, but it doesn't really matter at this point.
All over the web I keep seeing smart people say >Why are they pushing 5G so much? The bandwidth isn't needed for cell phones Meanwhile the TV keeps saying >Defund the police! They are racists! Am I'm the only one that's put 2 and 2 together? We're about to see most of the police replaced with drones and cameras. The age of Robocop is upon us because robots aren't racists. They need the extra bandwidth and devices per channel for the robots. They need hot spots every few meters for redundancy. Look at where they're rolling this stuff out. It's all suburbs and cities. The places they can't see right now with cameras and satellites. They already have the robots based on dogs patrolling SF parks and reminding people to socially distance. The next decade is going to be wild. By 2030 microchips in brains and robots are going to be common place. These retards will line up to get holes drilled in their skulls. Having the chip will be like having super powers. Imagine a world where no one goes to school they just get the chip installed and download knowledge as needed. Drugs will become obsolete because you can just run a script and feel like you're on cocaine and opioids all of the time. People will drop LSD together and mind meld by transferring their day dreams in real time. The divide between those with the chip and those without is going to be huge. It'll probably be possible to posses people remotely in real time or to share an experience with someone from two perspectives at the same time.
>>1023 It's coming along slowly and surely. A few more anons seemed to have at least stopped in to say hi. Maybe some of them will stay and help who knows? For the core small group of us, we're all focusing special focus interests of this large problem-space. At least one other guy is taking the generalist approach (as do I). Schedule? >HAHAHAHAHAHA but srsly, you can already get a Harmony today if you have the cash (and you can stomach the Bimbo-esque uncanny valley ghoulish), so I continue to predict that market forces will drive this industry forward. Probably in roughly a decade or so, we will probably see some kind of changes that will open a veritable floodgate for robowaifu development though. >>1027 Interesting insights. Probably pretty credible in large part IMO.
>>1027 The more bandwidth, the more data they can extract, the more that can be used by algorithms (I refuse to call it AI) to monitor, shape and control behavior.
>>1026 I personally am just too disspirited to talk much about her atm. >I'd wonder who will end up replacing her, but it doesn't really matter at this point. Pretty much. >>1027 I don't like to conjecture wildly like that. But I am afraid of that sort of scenario.
>>1030 Specifically the ten years bit seems like it's a bit ambitious of a timeline.

So, my entire mountain burned down the other day. Lost three sheds and the northern half of the property (nothing important), but the house was untouched. They were interviewing my closest neighbor on TV while it happened, and you could see my place burning in the background. Most of the community is just gone. The Red Cross has me in a hotel until they restore power to the area (very fancy hotel actually, my room has a full kitchen). I've been pretty busy since then, and will probably continue to be so until I return home, but I figured I'd stop by and let you guys know that I'm still alive.
>>1032 In what kind of hellhole do you live that all those mountains burn out of nowhere?
>>1033 California of course. The entire state burns every fall. Firefighting leadership on this fire was absolutely abysmal though. All of the resources were allocated to high dollar targets, and it allowed the fire to jump an area that has always been a natural fire barrier. Once the fire was in a region that hadn't been allowed to burn in many decades, it ran wild and no one could stop it (it's still burning uncontrolled right now, new evacuations being issued every day). I think I'm coming out ahead though. The fire removed everything on the northern part of my property, so I have plenty of room for a chicken coop and new garden. The sheds were falling apart, and I was planning on tearing them down to rebuild. Whatever my insurance gives me for them is more than I would have gotten otherwise.
>>1032 Wow, I'm so disappointed to hear that. I'm very grateful to hear you yourself are safe, and that your house was unscathed. I pray that you can somehow recover a sense of normalcy soon-ish gunship. Thanks for the update, I'll be praying for you.
>>1034 >California of course My condolences sir, didn't think anyone sane would live there. At least, in theory, grass will grow out greener now.
>>1035 Thanks, I do appreciate the support. >>1036 The state as a whole is dog shit, but I was pretty content with my community. It was a small group of ranches out in the woods, very tight-knit community. Everyone there is either a bullets and beans paranoid prepper that moved there to get out of the city, or a total hippy that wants to be surrounded by trees and animals. No in between at all. And there is a Benedictine monastery; very neat place overall. While new plants may appreciate the fire, I'm concerned about the mudslides that will come this winter. I will be digging ditches and building walls soon enough, but if the entire hill goes, it goes.

So, where do you guys go to discuss /tech/ these days? I am trapped in this hotel until Friday and the gym is closed because of Covid.
>>1038 >not going whole-hog and getting perma'd pfft, plebeians. how are holding out this evening? bored obviously, but any concrete plans forming up for you or other news?
>>1038 btw, nanochan has a /g/ fwiw aHR0cDovL25hbm9jaGFucHd6M3hudWU3Nmd0ZXlzdjZ3am01c2ltM2JiY20ybGM2NXg2MjVhdDc3NGs3N3FkLm9uaW9uL2cv
>>1039 This whole incident has been pretty grand honestly. When the fire started moving North, I went down to Walmart to buy moving boxes, and managed to fit everything that mattered to me in the W140 by the time the order came through. Nothing that remained had any emotional value, and would have been replaced by the insurance. Now I'm getting to rebuild some old shitty sheds at my insurance's expense, and will have plenty left over to do whatever I want with (my insurance broker tossed out a figure of $50k, mainly due to the loss of use of the house during the evacuation). I had been planning to rebuild those sheds and sell the contents of one on eBay some day. This accomplishes all of that without work or expense. The Red Cross has been a tremendous help, and I will be doing some volunteer work for them after this is all over. Dinner tonight was steak, yams, refried beans, a cinnamon roll, and a slice of pumpkin pie. I don't enjoy sitting around all day, so that could be better, but I am catching up on a lot of reading. The surviving community will need some serious rebuilding and cleanup, and some of the evacuees with houses to go back to have been talking with me about doing work for them. All in all, things are looking very positive. >>1040 Interesting, I'll have a look. Thanks.
>>1041 That sounds a pretty remarkable outcome through this all for you actually. Seems an answer to prayer somehow. I hope you can be of real value to your neighbors and the bond between you deepens. Nothing brings good men together in a community like hardship. Godspeed, gunship. Find some good things actually worth reading in the meantime, yea!? :^)
