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. Information >FAQ https://dragontamer8740.gitlab.io/faq/ >Mobile Builds https://dragontamer8740.gitlab.io/faq/links.html >Minerva Read the readme if you want to use it to edit your save data. Especially read the readme if you use Chrome. https://mega.nz/#!30gTyCCK!GFy7E3yrlkpUbA9yFMZpSinlT1BiO6Xn1Ykpc50b-Cw If you would like my custom mobile CoC, or other builds, just ask and I might oblige. >Downloads We don't really have the latest builds first anymore. 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
>>662 My A/C decided today was the day to click on and off every three seconds or so, so I have that to look forward to charging and hunting leaks in. I'm sure I've told the "whack the compressor clutch with a broomstick" story before so I won't relate it again, but that's probably the worst A/C related repair I've ever had to do once I tired of my 'fix.' I actually like yours in a way, but I can tell it's probably a nightmare when something (anything) goes.
>>650 >plastic vs. metal The thermostat on my cars has metal and plastic versions. Once the metal one left production Volvo introduced a plastic replacement and it likes to leak everywhere. I have a metal one in mine even though it went out of production two years prior to my car's manufacture date because I didn't want to risk that.
>>648 Ys is good. Did I not share my picture? I was playing original Ys the other day. On a PC-8801 emulator. Ah, I did post about it, just no pic to accompany. The PC-8801 version has a bitchin' soundtrack too. I also have Ys III (with the box even) for SNES. But YS III is kind of the black sheep.
>>647 >Ys III Definitely worst game in the series. Nearly all the original Falcom staff from the first two Ys games left because their bosses weren't paying well and weren't crediting them to try to avoid getting poached.
>>648 One more thing The first two Ys games are top-down, sort of action-RPG's. the battle mechanics are very satisfying, once you get used to them. It uses this "bump" based battle system. My worst RPG I've ever played in terms of gameplay is probably the first Final Fantasy or the first Dragon Quest. FF1 because it's so goddamn motherfucking buggy, or the first Dragon Quest because it's basically 1) start game 2) grind for 40 hours 3) win.
>>669 FFII is what I'm playing right now; it's uber broken but I still enjoy it significantly more than the first game and they had some great ideas that just could have been executed better I think. FFIII is my favorite NES RPG, possibly. Mother is okay, too. The later NES Dragon Quests are okay, but nothing super special to me. They have some cool parts and the translations/localizations were top-tier for the day, though. Best 8-bit RPG pre-Pokémon has to be the first Phantasy Star.

Just finished watching Haibane Renmei, and it fucked me up in a weird kind of way. It was simultaneously comfy and depressing as hell. >>660 Thank you. >>661 I've heard of a fair few alternative options for IB webhosting, but none of them have stood up to what we're using now. If a new golden option does become reality, then I would be happy to look into migrating us onto that. For now, however, the only option I see is sticking to the tried and true, and maybe TOR if clearweb hosting fails. >>665 Hey, the A/C in my car failed too! I think the compressor simply lost all of its freon, although I'm not sure why. There doesn't seem to be any leaks, so maybe a refill will fix it. My laziness exceeds my discomfort though, so I'll probably just stick to keeping the windows rolled down until autumn comes again. >>667 >>669 Seems nice. JRPGs don't tend to hold my interest for very long though, unless the story is superb. I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've actually finished a JRPG.
making up for my complete lack of posts for days, I guess. Clarifying, FF1 is broken in that: >Like 1/8 of the spells don't do shit >Another 1/8 or so actually buff your enemies instead of debuffing them >elemental weapons don't deal elemental damage >LOCK (like lock-on) always misses, and LOK2 makes it harder to hit enemies instead of easier >you can't erase those spells if you learn them; you're just stuck with spells that don't do jack shit in your very limited spell slots the rest of the game >the first two characters in your party can run too easily >the last two have a really fucking hard time running >if you use a 'house' type shelter to heal yourself in the field, it heals your HP, asks if you want to save, saves if you say yes, and THEN heals your MP, so when you reset you don't have the MP >>671 I usually get to the last dungeon in an RPG and get bored/frustrated.
BTW, of all the famicom Final Fantasies, II has the best story. And III has far and away the best gameplay. It's the only Final Fantasy I've actually got through the final dungeon and through the end boss in and seen the credits for.

Despite how many better RPG's there are for later consoles, I think the NES/Famicom is my favorite console.
>>674 also i'll always be proud of myself for beating the first castlevania game (and for reaching dracula in III).
>my (VPN-less) IP range has been blocked from posting on 4chan Thanks, whoever on campus did that.

>>665 Yeah, my AC's been acting up as well. I think the main issue is just the blower motor regulator, but it's also not as cold as I'd like. There's a good manifold set on Amazon for like $50; checks both high and low pressure ports for you. You know, it's actually not bad to work on at all. Back then Mercedes really went out of their way to make things easier for the mechanics (unlike Audi, where a timing chain replacement requires you to pull out the entire engine). The big issue is just that there's always something that needs work. The engine and transmission are very reliable, but people fall behind on maintaining all of the other features, so you see a lot of older S Classes on Craigslist for like $800 because half of the car no longer works and they can't be bothered to fix it anymore. If you don't do your own work and have to rely on The Dealer, maintenance on an S Class runs between $4k and $6k a year. Even the oil change is $250 at the dealer. You get a lot of young people buying these ten year old Mercedes for under $10k, and they have to sell them within a year because they can't even afford a brake job. >>671 >alternative options for IB webhosting The problem is that the game has changed in the last few years, and none of that matters these days. If you got with a big major host, they'll drop you on principal. If you go with some tiny reseller host, they might want to keep you, but leftists will just write to PayPal, Stripe, etc and suddenly your host's business is in danger. Faced with that, they of course will drop you. But even if all of that fails, they can just write to your domain registrar, your DNS host, etc and get all of that dropped. Suddenly your site is inaccessible. There isn't a clearnet solution that has any value today. Tor is okay I guess, probably more hassle than its worth. For right now, it'd be best to just see what happens with anon.cafe long term. >think the compressor simply lost all of its freon An AC is a closed system, and the refrigerant would last the lifetime of the unit if it never leaked. Without a leak, it will almost never run low on its own. Leaks are extremely common though, especially in the evaporator coil. If you run the AC on a low charge for any length of time though, you may be out the entire compressor. There's a dye test you can do pretty cheaply to see where it's leaking, if the charge is actually low.
>>676 Finally got around to ordering those two window regulators I've needed for a year. Guess what day it picked to knock out a third. Also, a short article I thought you might like: https://ranwhenparked.net/2013/01/08/a-look-at-the-1982-mercedes-benz-w123-plug-in-hybrid/
>>658 >orphaned files are created by just normal operations with lynxchan wew. >>677 Soon enough vehicle manufacturers will require engines to be put on a hoist in order to change the air filter.
>>676 "just buy the 4chan pass!" All the rangebans make sense when you realize that 4chan was altered many years ago to simply be a one-way propaganda outlet and any user interaction or content on that site is now a bug instead of a feature. There seem to be fewer bot threads now, but more shill interaction. The bot threads were awful but at least it was possible to post then. All the bans, shadow bans, cancel culture shit, it's all meant to demoralize and silence people, and it works. We definitely need a distributed imageboard system, and it needs to be very strong against MITM and DDOS. (I wasn't able to personally verify the claim because I don't into crypto, but does anyone else remember when the blockchain supposedly took a giant shit when they tried to kill Assange that one time?)

>>680 >and it works I don't believe so. In some ways we can liken the 1950/1960ss in the US to an abusive relationship; wholesale consumerism, vapid pop culture worship, Weathermen types, etc. People of that era not only tolerated it, but mostly participated in it as well. Fast forward to today, and we're seeing the breakup of that relationship. The conversation on the right hasn't been about resolving these issues or reclaiming society, but rather about abandoning it entirely. Groups of friends are banding together in record numbers to buy land in rural states and fuck off from society altogether. Some of my neighbors even did so recently, and I too am looking for good land. These people are not buying the 'latest and greatest' shit anymore, they're not going to the theater or buying albums, they don't read the news or use social media anymore, they're not drowning in psych meds and therapy sessions, and they've stopped voting. We are seeing the exact opposite of the situation a hundred years ago, where people left their farms in droves to move to the city. Miserable freaks in the cities will continue to vent their own frustrated feelings of inferiority rather than acknowledge that they have dominion over their lives and that their shortcomings are of their own doing. No political process will change that; they are just as much at war with each other as they are their supposed enemy. The coming decades will be disastrous for anyone still in the city. If someone of a sound mind, after watching this unfold for the last decade, can remain fat, lazy, consuming video games and other nonsense while preoccupied with the state of the internet, I don't think there's much hope for them. Their type of community, both online and offline, is moving quickly towards tight-knit and hard to find groups with a high barrier of entry. The days of places like 4chan are just as gone as the white picket fence suburbs of yesterday. Demoralization only 'works' on the type of person that refuses to acknowledge this, and is desperately trying to hold on to converged hobbies and lifestyles. Everyone else is just fucking Done. I do agree that decentralization is the way to go though. The current state of communities revolves around obscurity to stay alive, rather than technical attributes. It's not a perfect solution, but nothing ever is.
>>681 It's a very timely topic considering today's (June 29, 2020) mass reddit ban. Living rural and being technologically connected aren't incompatible imo, and it's absolutely necessary if we're to live rural but also maintain our technological advancements. The larger community interactions produced really interesting and great social advancements (think of how far National Socialism has spread in the past 20 years), and it would be a shame to throw away the good with the bad simply because people are sick of the current state of things on the net. We don't have nanomanufacturing yet, so unfortunately economy of scale is also a problem when it comes to rural living. Most of the essential products are entirely dependent on factories and large scale operations, and you need cities and suburbs to support them. Megacities are worthless, however. Land values are going to only increase from here on out, barring mass death.
>>680 >cancel culture I don't care about that. I barely even watch TV. I have better things to do. I just said "Okay, i guess I won't post." No skin off my back. Just was interesting. And no, I will never buy a 4chan pass. Or turn off my ad blocker.
>>683 >I don't care about that. I watched lance grope a twelve year old last year. I will not say who it was, and she will not be coming forward; believe all women. I encourage you all to write to his university and his parents' employers about this incident.
>>684 stunning and brave. #believeallanons >>683 >I won't post That's the problem. Lots of people have just stopped posting entirely. Now all that's left on most major sites is shitposting from spammers, bots, shills and midwits. Apps are normalfag territory and largely uninteresting and mediocre, although Tiktok has had some good memes but suffers from the reliance on rich audio/video media instead of more abstract words and pictures. The /int/ crowd and their mockery of "serious discussions" belied their actual intent to destroy all discussion and simply spam bait and shit in order to drown out anything constructive, and that has been applied internet-wide. The same tactics have been applied almost uniformly, and they've been very effective at controlling discourse. All that's left is for the plug to be pulled on archive sites, data rot to set in, and history can "finally" be continuously and retroactively rewritten to suit their narratives and agendas. They HATE permanent records. We need everyone posting, frequently, and the current demoralization needs to be reversed. We also need to be able to shove all the spammers and jews into a black hole, but that is currently not a solved technological problem. If I had the wherewithal, I would dedicate my time to solving that problem, because I think we're very close to another explosive technological revolution if censorship can be demolished once and for all. Local 3D production and self sufficiency for material goods, and AI for self sufficiency for data processing and problem solving should be humanity's eventual technological goal, but we're not there yet and in the interim I think we still need an uncensored internet in order to push us to the next technological rung so we can be the first species to get past the Great Filter.

>>689 I view the idea of a "progressive" AI as a double-edged sword. One one hand, the success of such a project would likely spell the end of civilized society and the white race. On the other, the Jews are wasting years on a bloated AI that'll probably be horribly broken on launch, thereby granting us more time and opportunities to counter it.
>>684 Kek. Cancel culture is a cancer, but one that is about something utterly petty and meant to waste time. >That's the problem. Lots of people have just stopped posting entirely. hey, if 4chan wants to self destruct it can go right ahead. Also it's kind of ironic, given that most of these shows are being promoted by jews, that you're suddenly on their side. >>688 Eh, I am not as worried as you seem to be.

>>689 But Anon. Gorillas don't into AI.
>>685 >They HATE permanent records. This. The truth is the enemy of those who want to destroy civilized society. Pretty much has always been the case as long as this struggle has existed.
>>691 >most of these shows are being promoted by jews, that you're suddenly on their side. Shows? Cancel culture is sweeping the nation. College kids are expelled, people are losing their jobs because of something their daughter said eight years ago. A NASCAR driver lost his sponsor because of something his father said decades ago. Small businesses get letters from their banks and Mastercard saying that neither will do business with them anymore because of something entirely mundane that they've said. When it comes to celebrities, I couldn't care less which of them get cancelled, they are all worthless. But the phenomenon itself is impacting good everyday people far beyond 'shows'.
>>692 Cancel culture refers to people who want shows that depict things they don't like cancelled, or am I wrong?
>>695 ah I see.
(the term has grown to extend to more) And yeah fuck that shit, I like jeremy clarkson
>>696 No, cancel culture is when narcissists try to ruin lives for the sake of virtue signaling. They like to say that "actions have consequences", and are constantly mistaking the First Amendment (Freedom of Speech) with Free Speech as an ideal of civilized society. The issue is that, what started out as a boycott on social media platforms has since morphed into something with far reaching consequences. "[Celebrity] raped a woman, so I won't watch his movies anymore" has turned into "[Average Joe] said that BLM is intentionally divisive and not helpful to society, so I'm going to call his employer, his bank, his landlord, his mother's doctor, etc." To no one's surprise, in ten years they're going to be astonished to find that they were the ones that created their own pipeline to the hard right. If you were an adolescent during this period and saw two groups in society, which would you rather align with; the sickly-looking freaks that do nothing but throw tantrums and want you to be ashamed of being white. Or the guys that like to work out, garden, joke around, and (amusingly) call each other kings? The left is creating its own boogeyman here. Hard to imagine anyone on the same side as JP Morgan and Mastercard could ever consider themselves to be on the 'right side of history.'
>>682 >today's (June 29, 2020) mass reddit ban. Hilarious development on that front today. I had a feeling it would go a certain way, and it absolutely did. A year or two ago, when they quarantined The Donald, that sub setup their own website, and it's actually doing quite well for itself. I don't remember the numbers, but it's not a small group of people at all. One of the biggest subs Reddit banned the other day was ConsumeProduct, a bunch of innawoods ecofascist types. They partnered with The Donald's new site and now have what amounts to a subreddit on their platform. The Donald's native boomers are discovering it for the first time, and they're having a great time over there. So I'll give it a year before the stereotypical Trump supporting boomer is a buff tedpilled gardener without a TV. Thanks Reddit, this is almost as good as the time they all spent a year on /pol/ because of that QAnon shit.
>>700 >So I'll give it a year before the stereotypical Trump supporting boomer is a buff tedpilled gardener without a TV tedpilled? Actually, that would be pretty remarkable sequence if it actually came true. I can't really trust boomers, but I trust the leftists even less. Interesting take Anon.

>>701 >tedpilled? "The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race," and Ted Kaczynski's other two books. In the twentieth century, ecofascism and deep ecology were popularized by "Blut und boden", but developed more so around Kaczynski and Linkola towards the end of the century. Retarded people sometimes confuse either with anprim nonsense, which rejects technology itself, while ecofascism instead rejects industrialized society rather than its tools. It's basically 'cabin innawoods' as an ideology. Ted went to Harvard at sixteen, and became a professor at Berkeley. Absolutely brilliant mind. One day he got fed up with everything and fucked off to his cabin. His books are extremely articulate and well thought out. He differs from Linkola though in that Linkola thought the system could be reformed (mostly through massive population loss), while Ted thought it was better to just get rid of it altogether. Ecofascist sentiment has been on the rise ever since the globohomo nonsense started; it is largely responsible for the recent gardening craze on the right. >that would be pretty remarkable sequence if it actually came true. It's been fun watching those boomers change over time; they used to be really welcoming of gays even. But the more the left pushes, the more they lose. If you try to shame a man into thinking that the things he likes are *ist, he doesn't change his views to accommodate you, he just warms up to a variety of *isms. The left is reaping what they've sown.

There have been some interesting scientific research done that predicts there is a very distinct maximum timeframe an advanced technological civilization can sustain itself before it collapses entirely. Roughly 2'000 years is the maximum. My guess it's a much shorter period in reality.

kek, he's so right. makes me wonder just how many subversive glowniggers are specifically trained in these leftist tactics, and how many come by it naturally as butthurt fee-fees first! libtards.
>>705 There has been speculation for a long time that Ted decided to open his books with his criticism of leftism solely to keep them out of the movement. The average leftist will read the first couple of pages and dismiss the guy as a far-right nutjob. But in actuality, none of his later points are even right wing (his views are societal, not necessarily political, but definitely at odds with conservatives). I have even seen people label him a 'white supremacist' for being some dude in a cabin that hated absolutely everyone.
There's still good goy's posting MR's on jewoxo's shithub which to the complete surprise of no one has not been updated yet and probably never will be at this point. In other much more useless news, hell has frozen over once more as some of the F95fags can apparently read because I recently decided to clearly mark the BOOBS mod as abandoned instead of continuing to provide false hope and at least one user informed the others.

Updated TiTS mobile builds & shit because I realized I hadn't in nearly two months. https://dragontamer8740.gitlab.io/faq/links.html I still don't think any of the changes are noteworthy though so I won't bother screenshotting the changelog; also it's been 1/3rd of a year since the last source code drop now.
