This AC Origins patch fixed the performance slowdowns I was getting in cities and cutscenes.

Looks like a patch dropped for Origins. My framerates seem more stable now, personally. But I haven't done any proper testing or anything.

What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

Last I checked that only applies to the justice system, and no one here is calling for Kevin Spacey to be locked up. At least that I've seen.

Innocent until proven guilty has never applied to the rest of life. Accusations have always come with consequences that aren't contingent on a conviction in a court of law. Yeah, sometimes false accusations are going to fuck someone up, and it sucks, but that's how it's always been and how it will always be.

It's society's way of dealing with scumbags who have good lawyers. No lawyer can save your reputation.

Also it's accusations of like 3 or 4 men at this point.

Basically after a string of Denuvo-protected games getting cracked instantly, the pirates ran into issues with this particular combination of VMProtect and Denuvo. Now the rumor is spreading that it's causing massive performance issues or something, the sole source being a pirate working on cracking it.

The thing is, the only thing they've shown is that the DRM exists and does something. They haven't proved that the instructions its calling are computationally expensive, or even to what percentage of the CPU time is being spent on it. There are literally no numbers from the original source, so who knows where the 30-40% CPU usage came from.

It's just dumb speculation. It's a CPU bound game and the slowdown is in crowded areas, regardless of your graphical settings. So I imagine there's some performance issue with large numbers of NPCs that will get patched.

Didn't FEMA approve the contract? Why would they agree to that?

Also, that wouldn't hold up in court, IMO.

I dunno but we gotta fix this.

Your appointment to FEMA should be finalized within the week.

Interesting that Netflix is suspending HoC production when it's the last season. Spacey probably has a contract where he gets paid regardless, so suspending production really only hurts the production crew. I wonder if something forced their hand, like maybe some people are refusing to work with Spacey.

Scientists can't explain a 'worrying' rise in methane levels.

Gee, I wonder what it could be.

Uh, I imagine the idea here is that it increased more than they projected, rather than that they are surprised methane is being produced.

People really don't like those that don't even realize they're a troll.

I was gonna go on a rant explaining to the guy why black people are over-represented in particular pro sports, but then I saw who it was. So I get spared having to put the effort in I guess. Never waste time explaining something to someone who thinks lead paint chips are a food group.

I sometimes wonder if these guys know how the Internet works. There's always going to be a strong encryption solution floating around, and you're not going to stop people from getting their hands on it.

"Store plaintext copies of everything" is just begging for hacks. No company is going to open themselves up to that kind of liability intentionally.

I think Keyser Söze's apology and the fact that he got outed are no reason to cancel the show. But netflix has more shows waiting in the wings.


According to an editor of The Hollywood Reporter, the decision was apparently made months ago to cancel after this next season. So while I'm sure Spacey's misconduct coming to light prompted the announcement coming when it did, it probably didn't have anything to do with the underlying decision.

The series has kind of run its course anyway. They've done just about everything.

CCP is really struggling to get anything going besides EVE. I wonder if they'll even survive once that game goes dark.

And yeah, VR is not going to be a huge cash cow until it's more than a high end toy.
