Ouch, people jumped in big time on GTA5 at $40? Not a good sign, for people hoping for better Steam deals, such as myself.


It's good to see D:OS2 on there though, although I'm probably going to pick up my Kickstarter key for that on Gog, not Steam.

Yeah played for.. 8 hours in the beta and have to say it has it ups and downs, I pledged for it and what not, but I have real doubts this TAG system for dialog is well thought out. It seems to me it is highly flawed, and breaks immersion and the writing even more than this was the case in D:OS 1

** To explain
In this game your char has tags.
RACE, GENDER, CLASS, BACKGROUND/TRAIT, Unique

And the dialog triggers responses for all of those, meaning your UNIQUE dialog is often just a SINGLE extra choice. And among that 1 unique choice, you are still left with the "generic" dialog all the time... which makes it feel weird and out of character.

Interesting. I enjoyed Wasteland 2 quite a bit, and plan on going through the director's cut/enhanced edition or whatever when the queue clears up a bit, but I would not say their 3d models were the strong point of that game.

Functional, acceptable, somewhat generic, come to mind.

Be that as it may, for my indy devs, function and acceptable are especially hard to achieve without turbosquid or unity market A good 3d artist costs money, often demands a concept artist and a texture artist as well, least if you want good quality. And not every 3d modeller is specialized in the same category of 3d models...

I have some real doubts whether this is morally justified btw. As a KS project the models ought to belong to the Kickstarters no?

This guy has hi priorities set straight. He knows that Piracy is at times a good thing. especially when he talked about how they monitored sites to see what shows were being downloaded. Sometimes ass-hat programmers cancel shows that are really better then they think. They use an outdated system with the nelsons and that is not an entirely accurate system to Gage whats shows really are most popular.

At one point, I think it was Netflix, who monitored piracy/torrents to see what content to try and get and worked great for them.


Except for that 1 show You know which one ^^

And yes, Tom is %100 correct, that's why I was getting confused, they're interspersing Win32 with 32-bit Windows. Two VERY different things, thanks for clearing that up, I thought there was something wrong going on. Pretty big oversight on their behalf.

Well... don't worry about it, as you can see from the topic on the ED forums 0% of people there even have the slightest clue what win32 actually is (you'd think a space-game crowd would be more knowledgeable..) tons of supposed tech sites even lack this basic knowledge, saying win32 and win64 when they mean x86 and x64 (notice the problem?) it ain't called win32, because it is called x86 and x86-64 it's such laziness with terminology and abuse from marketing that confuses people and it should be mentioned, as Tom did thankfully.

Anyhow, this is for sure a big oversight in the wording... but that's what you get with unpaid interns posting such stuff. (And yes, that was sarcasm ^^ I know who posted it)

And about SoftRAM? They must have had the right idea, since Windows 10 has memory compression built in! http://www.tenforums.com/windows-10-news/17993-windows-10-memory-compression.html


Yeah, but in real world applications this makes no performance difference as they are not paging to disc.. least not if they can help it.

You can not (efficiently) compress RAM (you know, it is in the name, RANDOM access).... it's bullshit snakeoil, what MS is doing is compressing an paged disc write to memory and instead of writing it as is into the pagefile, they compress it before the write into the pagefile, thus you can page more into a fixed size pagefile.

Only problem is that with 8 or 16gb RAM, you are quite literally not ever paging anything to disc. ^^

I had a good laugh when reading the whole story

Those compat docs are not as silly as they sound, since many apps have a green header (And thus green status bar) a green icon would be unreadable. And an icon like battery status is definitely one of these things where google does NOT make exceptions

Yes, I was talking about this post to their forums, which they did not get right. And you can call it nitpicking, but actually dropping the real Win32 is possible (but extremely ill-advised) in the current tech climate. The alternative is called UWP and it's VERY controversial.

Dropping support for 32-bit Windows is a minor announcement. Braben claims only 0.5% of players would be affected. Dropping support for Win32 would be huge. 100% of players would be affected. It's an enormous difference and they should get it right.

I would be totally for it, because I would get a huge giggle out of it if Braben actually removed win32 support, and not just 32bit binary support. Can you imagine? 1 patch to disable all windows support entirely, lmao (Although I guess this is why Windows 10 UWP exclusives are a thing as you can't easily convert UWP to win32)

To explain for tech plebs, with no win32 support, you couldn't even run a binary exe and not just "a" exe, really, literally no exe would work.

Cutter you are speaking the truth My math teacher was abysmal, nearly 70 year old by the end of it, slow and annoying to listen to... I hated math, I never got over this.

sigh, so many children are ruined by teachers who never learned HOW to actually teach. They all know a lot of things, they are all smart people, the problem is many don't know how to motivate or *teach* properly.

Btw Cutter, the answer is a universal income not bound to a job. Although I am sure some anti-socialists would like to make you believe that is the end of the world. I think it's better to give everyone money, than to have massive riots on your hands (see France)

Darks wrote on Sep 15, 2016, 22:56:
Let me just say I have a real hate for this system. I know itís in place for a reason, but the system is broken at the same time.

For instance. I was playing Sword Coast Legends by myself, got about 6 hours into the game, ran into a part where a quest asked me if I wanted to pay for information, it would cost me 1000 gold. I had the around 5K of Gold, so I say yes. Next thing I know the game took all of my gold.

Could not complete the quest because I was now broke. So I used Cheat Engine and gave myself some gold. Next thing I know a few days later I get a VAC ban. I argued and argued, but Valve and their bull shit policies would not hear of it nor will they overturn the ban. Even the developer Ash, who I know personally tried to get this over turned and they would not.

So Ash gave me a new CD key, but I have to use the game if I want to play it MP on my Alt account.

They need to institute a warning system and allow you to at least get warned if you do it again. Just out right banning someone is bullshit. So Valve can fuck themselves when it comes to VAC.

To be honest you deserved that VAC ban, not because of Cheat Engine but because you played 6 whole hours of this shallow pseudo-DnD 5e travesty (and nowadays, from a bankrupt developer who dropped this game dead in the water

Also a developer has no influence on VAC bans aside from a checkbox on their dev page... it's the price you pay for VAC

Btw, you were actually VAC banned for life? Honestly no idea how it is for 3rd party things, but at least for valve things you'd have to be repeat offender to get lifetime ban....

Then again, maybe you should be thankful considering how much the "last ever" DLC broke that will never be fixed in a patch Why this game has VAC btw is very simple, it is micro transaction focused, cheat engine allows you to , well, "cheat" the micro transactions...

4. Re: iOS 10 is surfacing hardcore porn GIFs in iMessage. Sep 16, 2016, 05:03 eRe4s3r
 
I can only say that you are of course right totally wrong, I checked with safesearch strict, still had dongs when searched via API, and you are also missing the point because the API search is (interestingly) not what you see when you type a normal search when you have a MS account, which a APPLE iOS user obviously does NOT have. Search on google image search "huge" with safe search off. Be very disappointed if you expected any nudity or porn. Me thinks even developers at Apple don't use Bing (for obvious reasons)

That said am I the only one who finds this feature incredibly stupid and creepy as fuck? Does no one even think what it means when you get a bing search result as recommended in a CHAT APP. That means this app sends your entire convo to Microsoft Bing... and of course, it's Apple, I mean Siri sends everything to Bing as well. MS knows more about you if you use an iPhone than Apple.

I admit I will check it out, but unlike I did previously with D:OS 1.. I will NOT be playing it more than once.. that stupidity on my part nearly spoiled the entire final game for me, as ACT 1 was a pretty fucking major part! And doing it 13 times definitely destroyed my good first impression.
