ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Making hacking easier
« on: April 10, 2016, 04:40:37 pm »
zonk, people would be much more sympathetic to your ideas if you'd stop making completely unsubstantiated claims with no basis in reality. You simply don't know what you are talking about most of the time. Which would be fine if you'd accept that and asked instead of proclaiming your made up versions of reality simply as fact. In this thread and the other once there are dozens of things you said that are quite simply hogwash. You do not know how to use debugging tools properly. What you want are workarounds for your gaps in understanding and experience on how to debug. What's needed against that isn't different tools, it's better documentation and tutorials.

And going ad hominem ("global warming deniers") isn't going to help your case either.

You picked "xyz" as filename instead of "xyz.gba". Just rename the file via windows exxplorer.

Yes. Or better, save a new copy instead of overwriting the old ROM so you have both.

Konami doesn't want to make any more games for their franchises, but they still love milking money out of them.

(after a Rock Band overdose on PS3 - btw I need a replacement, any sug's?)

Trash the plastic garbage, get a real guitar and play Rocksmith. You can find used guitars for the price of a new game, so it's not overly expensive an option either.

It's simple trolling while staying on the safe side of the rules. But I'm sure they'd call it clever commentary on the quality of other general discussion threads (and I'd tend to agree).

It's too bad you need a new card right now, since it's currently a really shitty time to buy a new GPU. The current architectures are 2-3 years old and a new one by both major players is expected for summer/autumn.

General Discussion / Re: Progressive Rock

It's called progressive because instead of just looping through a chorus bridge verse pattern like a pop song, you take a musical idea and take it apart from every angle you can think of throughout the composition. It's a journey and while you can end up where you began, you might as well end up somewhere completely different.

I love progressive rock and I must say my favourite band is also Yes. They have a lot of brilliant albums. And unlike Genesis they don't just have 1 or 2 strong songs per album, but are pretty strong throughout the entire things. (well, that kind of comes with the territory if you have albums with 3 songs and each is 15 minutes +). My favourite album is ofc Close to the Edge, but my favourite songs are Starship Trooper (best solo ever) and Does it Really Happen? (from the underappreciated album Drama, their last good one before they entered the stadion rock shitphase that almost all classic prog bands went through).

Other favourite bands of mine in the genre are Marillion, Magma (if we don't put them into their own genre for simplicities sake), Focus and, for something current, Spock's Beard. I don't know if many people nowadays know this, but Italy also had a really strong prog scene. I'd especially recommend interested parties to check out Banco del Mutuo Soccorso.

That Wiki statement is retarded because it all depends on the viewing context. Close to a several meter long display pixels will be extremely visible even at 8k. It all depends on the viewing distance. Far enough away, 320x240 is also perfect to the human eye.

That aside, I doubt there is a market push for 8k displays. It's the first I heard of it. Apple has one 5k display on the market IIRC, but that's it. The next big thing the TV industry wants to sell you is OLED, they are happy to do that at 4k. I just bought a 4k TV btw, so I'd say they have become affordable. That doesn't change that source material at that resolution is still hard to come by. The only steady source I know of is Amazon Instant Video streaming, and that's only for their self-produced stuff. Even a high-end PC will struggle to run games at 4k with playable framerates too. Let's ignore the pathetic rumors that there'll be a 4k Playstation, that's technology wise simply bullshit currently. So there is no way they'll be actively pushing 8k, it doesn't make sense and there is simply no source tech for it. (I didn't buy that TV for 4k btw, it's just what current models have and I didn't want a 3 year old model). What is already gone from most current TV models is 3D. Thank god.

You guys all realize IST was looking for 3D games to test the new features of ePSXe, right?

*whew* mys secret cloning project that produced both SGP and Tharthan is still a secret...
That was close!

Do I dare ask what the original source material for the clones was?

But top 100 lists... always struck me as a silly idea in general.  I mean, you're just comparing games of totally different genres, which appeal to totally different people.  Can you really say that 'The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time is better than Super Mario Galaxy and Call of Duty 4 because this and that reason'?

Much better to list the top games of a certain genre or maybe theme.  Top 100 platformers might be a bit more meaningful than top 100 games, and the same goes for top 100 FPS games, top 100 fighting games, top 100 shoot em ups, etc.

Exactly. Mixed genre lists essentially rate genres against each other. That doesn't make any sense and is just completely arbitrary.

Ape Escape

I'd link to the old insomniac essay about how bad it is to rate games of mixed genres into a single list, but I think all the content of that site is behind a paywall nowadays.  :crazy:

It's not the seats, it's the angle towards the screen. If you are in the front you need to look up a bit (it gets straining for 2 hours) and if you are on the outer edges you are viewing somewhat diagonaly towards the screen. At home the center seat is always yours.

Even screen size is relative to your field of vision and thus depends on the distance. Your TV might not be several meters across, but you're only a few steps away from it. It's not hard to even oversize a telly. In the cinema half the seats are also pretty crappy. especially the outer edges and the first few rows.

Java's all but dead...

According to...? Java just got back the leading position in the TIOBE index http://www.tiobe.com/tiobe_index . Which means its popularity is growing. When it's the most widely used already.

My point is that I have doubts that the theatres are going to be able to survive off of the money of dates and groups of friends going out to them when one of those friends might just invite their friends to their house where they have a huge telly.

So? When their time comes, cinemas will go out of business. But I doubt it'll be anytime soon.

What has changed is that people pool into huge blockbuster movies and not so much smaller productions. Because the big movie events are just that - events, to be savored with friends. While smaller stuff is more readyly bought on DVD and watched on a boring evening with nothing else to do. But again, that's a change in movie going habits but not per se a bad thing.
