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

Nanochan is up on the v2 address. >>1590 Still looking at options, which might take a little while because my backlog of shit to do is fucking massive right now. I probably shouldn't even be spending time posting, but I want to make sure everyone here is informed. All this is getting fucking stressful. >>1591 That's certainly one possibility.
>>1593 >Nanochan is up on the v2 address. Thanks! >All this is getting fucking stressful. Just take time and breath Anon. You're getting your ducks in a row. We'll be fine. :^)
>>1592 Build went smooth as silk. I'll begin digging through the docs & examples and try setting up a small home server with it.

Stormer is back up. Consensus server health is all over the place. Apparently the TOR project is planning on deprecating v2 addresses later this year. Whatever.
Tlaw's Index is back up.

>>1570 Wait until you read their article on choosing an email host. >>1576 >Lol why do you call him that? Five years ago I was playing JoNT with /d/, and had a brilliant idea. Rather than have a dozen people subscribe to various Patreons and haphazardly leak games, have one anon setup a Patreon everyone else could donate to. That guy would then subscribe to the handful of games people wanted, and leak them. It would have been a communal effort of sorts. Despite the idea never taking off, the nickname 'commie anon' stuck. To this day, "Rabbi Fennberg" on Google Images still yields some of my finest edits from back then. To think that lance was the reason he originally stopped sharing the source, and years later I would be the reason he added DRM. The gang's all here. >>1581 >I figured there'd be at least a little runaround instead of everybody swinging the banhammer at once. Remember that leftists are terrified of being ostracized. There is an almost pathological need for acceptance. When Amazon shut down their servers, the rest of Parlor's infrastructure went into "what are WE doing to fight fascism?" mode. It's the same reason why fucking soft drink companies feel the need to put our statements on the capitol riot, or why leftists felt pressured to post black squares for BLM last summer. The bugman does not think independently, only in the context of being accepted. >>1586 Tor was originally a DoD project, and the state operates most of the exit nodes. It's not even a secret. >>1587 The War on Terror coming home. But at least Biden is going to return the country to normal, right everyone? At this point I would be inclined to ask a drowning man his political affiliations before rescuing him. >>1588 >what's the word on the POTUS? If you ask the Q people, he's holed up in an underground bunker, laying the pieces out on the board and about to make his final stand against the Deep State. To everyone else, I imagine his administration is trying to keep him out of the spotlight for the rest of the month so he doesn't embarrass them further, and they don't become unemployable by February. >>1589 >once I learn it and set up a server ejabberd is a great server, very easy. With config files written by Ray Charles himself. >>1590 >Do you have a recommended client? Five years ago I was using Profanity. I'd have to see if that's all well and good today, but I had no complaints at the time.
I'm hearing reports of power outages in Texas.
>>1569 >Kaczynski >The man and his writings were brilliant, I can only take it as a compliment. I meant it as one. I disagree on a few points but he is still an intellectual and I respect his dedication and reasoning. >>1568 Saved. >>1599 >With config files written by Ray Charles himself. That got a smile out of me. >I imagine his administration is trying to keep him out of the spotlight for the rest of the month so he doesn't embarrass them further, and they don't become unemployable by February. A bit late for that, but that sounds more plausible to me. I'm sure he's unhappy. >To this day, "Rabbi Fennberg" on Google Images still yields some of my finest edits from back then. Heh, i have some of those saved. Great stuff. >To think that lance was the reason he originally stopped sharing the source To give details, it was because he (or more probably Adjatha, since fen seems to have no idea how the hell git works) was at that time releasing public builds every two weeks or so (later kicked out to closer to a month apart each). At that point, development was a little faster than it has been in the last four years or so, and more people were contributing code and stuff. To encourage this, the git master branch was public facing on github; this meant that by building the git master you could get an even more up-to-date version of the game than even the game's "backers" could. Fen & co. at the time claimed something like "we aren't too worried about 'piracy'" (single quotes added by me) "…because updates are so frequent that we can outrun them." So I took it upon myself to get the game building from source code on my machine; first I did it in flashdevelop in a windows VM, and then I realized I could actually write some scripts and get it building under Linux distros. So I did. From then on, for maybe a year or so, I'd just run a 'git pull' every day or two and run my scripts to generate builds of the game (and Android/iOS apps of it) and then post them on 8ch. Suddenly, without much prior warning, the github repo disappeared. I made one last build, based on a fork by jacques00 that hadn't been memory holed yet, and then around a week later we got an official response that it had been deleted due to "piracy" and someone setting up an automated build system. For the record, all my scripts did was the equivalent of hitting the "build project" button in an IDE. I was manually getting and building the code itself, fixing all the various random bugs that would crop up and submitting pull requests to fix compilation issues. I also made a few feature implementation pull requests, which basically got yoinked by Adjatha, rewritten with different names, and then pushed by Adjatha without crediting me, leaving my PR's open and unanswered. So basically they just decided that my contributions were less important than "'protecting' their eye pee." >and years later I would be the reason he added DRM It was hardly that; just some magic bytes that he could use to identify who downloaded it. We curbstomped that one pretty easily.
>>1601 Eh, nvm, I guess it technically was DRM. Still, it was just some magic bytes tacked on the ends of files by a PHP script on their server. Once we found that out it was pretty easy to fix; especially since they even had it print 'de ad be ef' in a hex editor near the end. Blatant giveaway.
>>1602 Actually, I guess the bigger thing was that they shadow-banned us by just sending the old version of the SWF but with a newer version number injected. I'd forgotten that detail. That was pretty nefarious.
>>1599 >But at least Biden is going to return the country to normal, right everyone? At this point I would be inclined to ask a drowning man his political affiliations before rescuing him. As much as I dislike the current administration, his won't be much better; it'll focus on social issues of little import and ignore all the economic problems of those outside an elite few, just like now.
Also, if any legislation does get introduced that seems like it could actually bring positive change, it'll just be hemmed and hawed out until the democrats can lose control in a couple years, so they can claim to have tried to do something while not actually accomplishing anything.
Apart from a problem with some flickering on grays when brightness is reduced, the Android open source (AOSP) rom I built from the source tree seems to be working well. Not sure what the deal is with the brightness, but I bet it's AMOLED related.
>>1599 >To everyone else, I imagine his administration is trying to keep him out of the spotlight for the rest of the month so he doesn't embarrass them further, and they don't become unemployable by February. Kek, OK I admit that's an angle I hadn't thought of.
Apparently Delta is getting sick and tired of all the evil fascists everywhere, and is now kicking Trump supporters off flight for being, well, Trump supporters.

>>1601 >I'm sure he's unhappy. I'd be happy too if everyone I hired stabbed me in the back. But Don has only known how to one thing: build a brand/lifestyle out of something and sell it. He did it with his name, and he did it with MAGA. There was never an ideology behind his politics to rally around. >>1602 I brought it mostly because you and I were the two people that got Fen to do something to stop piracy. You, with him taking down the git. And me, with him trying to stop the guy uploading his game to halfchan. I also remember them doing something with CoC2 when I started packaging their online game from my wget script. But I don't remember what measures they took besides obfuscating the javascript files >>1604 That's a very optimistic viewpoint compared to entering another war, expanding SCOTUS to stack it, and a second Patriot Act. Say what you will about Trump as a person, but his presidency had almost no impact on anyone. Someone who ignored the propaganda for the last four has woken up every morning untouched. Few will be able to say that about what president Harris is about to do. >>1605 They have no reason to introduce positive bills because the Uniparty is in power now and any such bills will just make them look bad. >>1608 This is why being a grayman is important. Unless you get off on being a victim, there is absolutely no reason to publicly display anything about your personal life. Dress nice but not outlandishly, don't wear shit with words or logos. Don't discuss shit of importance with people unless their input is important to you. You don't get points for virtue signaling at the expense of making your life difficult.
>>1609 >I'd be happy too Unhappy even.
>>1609 >Few will be able to say that about what president Harris is about to do. Sadly, this. It will certainly be the end of life on easy street for practically every legal citizen, and by design ofc. This will probably prove an irrecoverable slide in the future as well. >Don't discuss shit of importance with people unless their input is important to you. You don't get points for virtue signaling at the expense of making your life difficult. Good advice, thanks. I'll try to carry it out more conscientiously now.
>>1609 Looks like Parler likely didn't do anything to keep users secure. Someone's apparently done a 70TiB data dump (remarkably quickly, I might add). >Don has only known how to one thing: build a brand/lifestyle out of something and sell it. He did it with his name, and he did it with MAGA. There was never an ideology behind his politics to rally around. I know I've completely agreed with you on a handful of things in the past, but I'm still glad to hear you say that since that's what I've thought all along. >>1609 I remember that story vaguely; I think you said that you just saved what you could, tried running the game, and looked in the JS console for the missing stuff. >expanding SCOTUS to stack it The behavior of the GOP regarding the last five years or so (ever since Scalia's death) has been disgraceful, too. Not that that makes it okay for democrats to play shitty games.
>>1612 Most people think Scalia was murdered so Hillary could stack the court.
>>1612 >Someone's apparently done a 70TiB data dump (remarkably quickly, I might add). Very likely an inside turn-coat job.
>>1612 >The behavior of the GOP As if that was a separate group of people.
Just tried qutebrowser. It crashed twice, and the third time I realized that it's unusable for me because I don't know how vi keybindings work. What kind of diseased headspace is required to decide that ctrl-tab should make an entirely new tab? Guess I'm sticking with Basilisk until I find something less shit.
>>1616 You might try using the Pentadactyl add-on w/ Basilisk on and off until you get more used to it. Then maybe you can try Qute again. Using Vim regularly will help too ofc :^)

>>1616 Ah, I forgot that not everyone wants vim bindings. I've been used to it for awhile now. Basilisk isn't a bad choice though. That picture is interesting and would make for a nice AI Dungeon prompt tonight.

So, why the sudden rush to emasculate a lame duck President? Are they terrified of him or something?
>>1619 The same reason they are going scorched earth with conservative sites; revenge. 2016 wasn't supposed to happen, and they will make sure it never does again. The right as a whole will become 'domestic terrorists' so they can suppress the anti neoliberal opposition.
>>1620 Seems to make sense. I'm curious personally, since I'm squarely in the anti-neoliberal opposition camp, to see just how far they are willing to take their 'oppression' of Righty. Heh, why isn't that a slangword?
>>1621 >how far they are willing to take their 'oppression' of Righty. “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” ― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn , The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956
>>1622 >Solzhenitsyn Good Point. I'll need to read him soon.
>>1620 I think it's more to try cementing him as numero uno bad guy. They don't want those who were children during his term to start asking questions in adulthood; "How was this man, who was so evil, had everyone in media and government against him, never impeached?" The outcome of 2016 is better than had they won, it greatly accelerated things in their favor. One would hope that the cold-blooded murder of Capitol tourist Ashli Babbitt would elicit public outrage on a level equal to or greater than that for career criminal George Floyd, but it won't. The harsh punishments for the Capitol tourists and the propaganda machine will do its best to quash any public outrage. I have less than zero interest in politics. Fuck, I really miss the old internet.

>>1613 >"most people" Sure, maybe on /pol/.
>>1618 I want emacs bindings >>1619 Because they want to be on "the right side of history" and also because they were personally endangered.
>>1624 >Fuck, I really miss the old internet. You and me both.
>>1624 >cementing him as numero uno bad guy That would be a wasted effort, considering that he's gone in a week. It's more about demonizing the right as a whole, and Trump is just the scapegoat for that. He could be public enemy number one for the next week, and then what, we enter a utopia brought on by the Biden administration and the left can happily retire? The left cannot function without rallying against problems of their own creation. The right is content with God, family, and community, but the left has spent the last century demonizing all of that, so they have no central focus of their own. To have a successful leftist movement, you must invent problems that can only be fixed with societal change. Alinsky's book has been the de-facto playbook for the left for almost fifty years now, and this is no different. They need Trump to appear to be a bigger problem than he actually is to justify their actions against the right. They could have nuked the conservative side of the internet at any time, but they needed the capitol protests first. >never impeached He was already impeached the first time, just never removed from office. >>1626 >the right side of history Absolutely delusional to mistake maliciousness for incompetence. People whose policies are dictated by foreign money and lobbying are under no delusion that they are fighting the good fight; these are talking points for the masses. They know exactly what they're doing, and it's about time you figured it out too.

>>1617 The main thing keeping me from learning vi stuff is the fact that I have no real reason to. I'm not a serious programmer, and I prefer menu-driven interfaces with/or simple keybindings (or a program-specific command prompt in some cases) when I'm working from a CLI. I have no doubts that vi/emacs style environments are more efficient once you get used to them, but I personally have little to gain from it. >>1624 >spoiler I'm right with you there. >>1626 >personally endangered Yeah, no. If the feds were ever actually in danger, we'd be having a very different conversation right now. They just put on a show to give a (weak) excuse to abuse even more power.
>>1629 >no real reason to A lot of people only learn vi because they ssh into a box and nano isn't installed by default. I personally prefer emacs as an editor, but have been using vim and software with vim bindings lately because it's just everywhere. Every time I install something nice, it turns out to have vim bindings, so I live with it. >They just put on a show to give a (weak) excuse to abuse even more power. Pretty much. Capitol police made six requests for NG support, and had offers from the Pentagon and FBI. All were denied by officials in the Capitol. They had a month to prepare for a very visible protest, and gave it less security than even a regular Trump rally. Painfully obvious to everyone that doesn't get their news from a propaganda machine.
>>1628 >He was already impeached the first time, just never removed from office. Shows how little interest I have for this stuff, haha. TWO SCOOOOOOOOOPSSS!??!??!? TWO IMPEACHMENNNNNNTSSSS???!?! We're on the same page. It's retarded to us, but not to them. It's more evidence for their herstory books; make the right less attractive, hoping to keep its size under control in the future. They need an opponent, only it can't be too powerful. I think we're witnessing them invent the next problem with the latest deplatforming; shrink the right by pushing Trump's true believers underground, hoping to cause some more tourism incidents, use those to continue expanding control.
>>1631 >I think we're witnessing them invent the next problem With the impeachment, absolutely. The next problem will be republican congressmen that didn't vote for impeachment. Those that did just became pariahs to the right, those that didn't will be held accountable for 'supporting fascism.' It further fragments the right as a political opponent.
>>1624 I honestly miss being able to not care about politics, but every single part of life has become politicized, and it's impossible to insulate yourself from it unless you have "fuck you" money and land. Even then, you can still get eminent domain'd so jews can build more rapefugee housing. There's no ability to be left alone anymore.

>>1634 >unless you have "fuck you" money You need to separate wants from needs. Land in California close to shopping centers, airports, etc is expensive as hell. Land in the middle of nowhere Wyoming is like $4k for 40 acres. The cost of living is really dirt cheap, it's just that bugmen are weighed down by unnecessary expenses and blame everyone else for their poverty. Auto loans because they financed a new shitbox, expensive rent because they didn't do their research on housing, fast food and boxed frozen dinners because they never learned how to cook, needless online entertainment, new video games, electronics, and consumer products. Nobody needs any of that, and it's expensive as hell. I am not a rich man, but everyone thinks I am because I buy almost nothing and keep my expenses as low as possible. Cut out the expenses, work, save up, do your research and buy that land. The biggest problem the right has is this idiotic desire to stay plugged in to the society they hate. Either go full bugman or get out, anything in between will just make you miserable.
>>1635 Unfortunately, I'm a retard irl with illiquid assets and obligations. COVID has made things even more difficult.
>>1636 >obligations Are these obligations court-ordered? If not, then I urge you to reconsider how important your current ties are. Are you following said obligations because you earnestly believe they're morally right and fulfilling, or because you feel like you have to? If it's the former, then consider why you feel this way and how important these things really are to you. If it's the latter, then the best thing to do is distance yourself from the situation. Anyone and anything can be ghosted out of your life if you try hard enough. >COVID A weak-ass virus has literally no meaningful impact on your life. It's the government mandated lockdown that's screwing us all over. In fact, if it's ever brought up in IRL conversation, which it will, don't say "COVID", "Corona", or any variation thereof. Instead, say "lockdown". It's innocent enough that no normalniggers will think you're suspicious, and it'll subtly remind them (and yourself) that the conditions we're faced with are entirely the fault of the powers that be. Words matter.
>>1637 >and it'll subtly remind them (and yourself) that the conditions we're faced with are entirely the fault of the powers that be. /thread. There are real, significantly life-threatening diseases out there. This one isn't one of them. It's hardly a threat beyond the very elderly and very young, same as the flu is.

>>1636 Most people who aren't retards today were at some point. No one leaves highschool knowing how to make the most of life. But those that never figure it out end up being manchildren playing video games in their 30's. You've presumably got plenty of time to figure it out, and are probably ahead of the curve. Hell, when I was seventeen, I was on my own and had no idea how to do anything. I was heating frozen cheese-steaks over the stove on a bent coat hanger. If I can make it, you can too. >>1638 I have spent more time in the last year wondering about a brain tumor than this 'pandemic.' I think I'm just sleep deprived though. Can anyone even point to someone in their lives that has died of this thing? Twenty billion deaths every day and no one even knows someone that died. The best they can point to is a friend that got sick for three weeks and has since made a full recovery. But why aren't we taking it more seriously?
>>1639 >I was heating frozen cheese-steaks over the stove on a bent coat hanger. Lel, I've been there. :^) > The best they can point to is a friend that got sick for three weeks and has since made a full recovery. There's this on elderly man in church who had to sit out from his duties for well, just about 3 weeks now. AFAIK he's going to be fine.
>>1639 Are you implying the 20 million deaths a day don't real Anon!? Police! Someone insulted the 2 billion deaths! Nevar 4get the 20 billion!
Looks like GCC actually had its own port of the 'go' tool, which means I'm back in business with building/running go programs on PowerPC 32-bit (official golang does not support or build on PPC32, but GNU's does). >>1639 >Can anyone even point to someone in their lives that has died of this thing? Yeah, actually; one of my parents' neighbors died. I spent a lot of time talking with them growing up.
BTW, gccgo apparently works on Alpha as well.
