Hoi4 Modder, Mexican 03/13/2020 (Fri) 23:20:30 No. 6902 [Reply] [Last]
I am a modder for Hearts of Iron IV and I'm currently updating my old mod. My main issue is that I need loading screens/menu screens. The image given is a filler so I'm looking for something different. The images need to be 1920x1440, and they SHOULD be appropriate to have on the Steam Workshop. Thanks!
>>6902 Cursed. Also who's the 1939 Soviet leader?
>>6911 That one lewd Marxist-Leninist cosplayer that became a small meme for doing that maoist cosplay. You know, that one.

Seeing how there’s multiple /co/ related threads on the board. I think we should just put all of them into one general just for clarity’s sake. Discuss anything related to comics and animations from comic recs, leftist animations to comic writers’ attempts to larp as leftists. Seriously is there a worse anarchist in the UK than Alan Moore?

>>6841 That universe main “villain” uploaded himself into a cybernetic ÁI to manage the resources of the universe. While Hal only left after admitting that the villain’s plan worked and say that his nature wouldn’t fit a commie system. Basically being the guy from this interview. http://youtu.be/ktE_3PrJZO0

What is even his goal? Shouldn't he be happy that things are better? Is he mad and petty that he's not the one responsible for it?
Batman is a fucking piece of shit who could be funding programs to help the community like Black Panthers or Food Not Bombs, but instead he just beats up poor people

>>6893 They’re mutts. Decades of anti-communist propaganda has fried their brains to a crisp. They can’t do any critical thinking other than consooming and repeating lies, they’re honestly worse than the proles of 1984.

free retro homebrew gaming Anonymous Comrade 01/20/2020 (Mon) 17:19:29 No. 5479 [Reply] [Last]
Do you have an emulator for NES, anon? Mine Shaft: A very simple game, just push left or right as you descend. What's your score? https://www.romhacking.net/homebrew/34/ Nova the Squirrel: Don't be put off by the picture of the lame title screen. This is a full-blown side-scrolling platform adventure that would haven been worthy of official publishing back in the day. https://www.romhacking.net/homebrew/114/ Star Evil: I don't even. https://www.romhacking.net/homebrew/101/

Get It! is a very old-school game (the level = the screen). Catch items, avoid the baddies. http://www.gravelstudios.com/getit/ What I found very unusual about is that the speed of the player is the same as the speed of the items and enemies bouncing around. So my initial reaction was that it's "objectively" a design mistake, but a few minutes later I got into the flow of things. You just have to anticipate a bit how the things are bouncing. Also has a two-player mode! Remember those dubious cartridges promising to contain a truckload of games? The promised number of games turned out to be a very postmodern way of counting, with different modes or levels of the same game being presented as two or three different games. Graphic assets and sound was also shared between the titles. In this wonderful tradition is 31 in 1 Real Game! by, once again, the Mojon Twins, featuring utterly pointless low-res nudity (I'm not complaining) and parodies. Download is right at the top of this list: http://www.nesworld.com/article.php?system=nes&data=neshomebrew I found Rendezvous and Zombie Calavera Prologue the most interesting. One little thing that irks me about many homebrew titles is how moving diagonally works. They often just add together the movement of each axis, so you move faster diagonally. I'm pretty sure that's not how it works in real life… I also believe that the programmers of the old games back in the day usually took care to avoid that counter-intuitive issue. For example, your spaceship in R-Type does not move faster diagonally and the player can make more precise movements by hugging the left edge of the screen and pressing diagonally.
>>6167 >It's just larping We're talking about video games here, so I don't see why that's a problem, but I've got other points to make. Another thing I've noticed is that higher resolution makes the game a lot laggier. playing the game with the original resolution completely gets rid of the lag (but then the screen is tiny). it's not like the game looks any better, we still use the exact same sprite the only difference the higher resolution make is showing more of the map than you should actually be able to see, at time it even results in you being able to see a black void on the screen which you wouldn't be able to see in the original game.
http://www.nesworld.com/article.php?system=nes&data=neshomebrew I had a look at some other titles on there. What Remains is a short 2019 "adventure" (or rather walking sim) set in 1986 with a plot like Captain Planet on cocaine. They did not try for a very authentic 1986 feel (for example, I don't think "paywalled" was a term in use back then). Got a few sensible chuckles out of me and the same number of eyeroll moments. This is really an actual piece of software that one could unironically label Cultural Marxism.
>>6167 You are thinking about polygonal games. Original Fallout doesn't use polygons and isn't a first-person shooter. (And even with polygons it isn't always sensible to increase the framerate, since the shoddy programming practice of tying mechanics/physics to framerate which often happens with console games when there is no thinking ahead about potentially porting that to other platforms.) Anyway, here's a new NES game: In Böbl, you play fighting er trying to survive despite the attacks existence of your enemies, which are all very hard edge, know what I'm saying. While playing, I often said out loud when dying: Ow, the edge! http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=19718

Anybody here play an instrument or have musical talent of some kind?
Play banjo and sing in the scots tradition. Wys?
I have been told I am the incarnation of Less Claypool on the bass.
>>6529 i really want to learn the accordion but have honestly no idea how to start doing that, especially considering how expensive instruments are
>>6529 I used to play alto saxophone when I was still in grade school. Because I really liked the idea of playing Jazz music because it was so cool. Though my original pick was going to be a flute because it would have been super cool to learn that from watching cartoons and such. But glad I didn't as flute is very hard to play with huge hands like mine.

Yes, an old "Melody King" 3/4 (parlor) guitar I got cheap on ebay. I had a Stefan Grossman instructional DVD on fingerpicked blues guitar, in which he said for this genre either get an old battered one from a junk shop, or a cheap new one. Pic related shows the guitar complete " bits of paper modification" to lift the strings high enough to stop fret buzzing. When I've got some money together I'll get a proper guitar "set up" done at a guitar shop. But in the meantime it does the job. I used it to record this : https://youtu.be/9sd0Hd3PygE

>>5082 Gotta disagree with you there, bro. Moore's intention with Watchmen wasn't to destroy and BTFO cape comics forever. No, he loved them. He just wanted to display why taking them overly seriously was absurd. However most people think he was eviscerating them and that comics need to be taken more seriously.
>>5082 >>5109 >Moore's intention with Watchmen wasn't to destroy and BTFO cape comics forever. No, he loved them. Pretty much this, dude's a radlib larping as an anarchist magician. Just read his pitch for twilight of the superheroes to see his "anti-capitalist" phase only happened after DC fucked him over with Watchmen. https://archive.org/stream/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes/TwilightOfTheSuperheroes_djvu.txt >It would provide a strong and resonant springboard from which to launch a number of new series or with which to revitalize old ones again in a manner that was not obviously crassly exploitative so as to insult the reader's intelligence. With an eye to the merchandising that Marvel managed to spin out of Secret Wars, I think it's safe to assume that if it were possible to credibly spin role playing games, toys, "Waiting for Twilight" posters and T-shirts and badges and all the rest of that stuff from the title, then that would be a good idea too. Ideally, it might even be possible, while appealing to the diehard superhero junkie, to produce a central story idea simple, powerful and resonant enough to bear translation to other media. I mean, I know that I'm probably still intoxicated by the Watchmen deal, but it never hurts to allow for these things as a possibility, does it?
