#1401434 Sekiro: Shadows Die Constantly

Posted by Beef-Clef on 18 June 2019 - 08:41 AM

Yeah I think that's what I'm coming to realize about it, it doesn't feel difficult as much as it does tedious because even with all the prosthetic tools there's only one way to play the entire game. It feels as if from software is trying to cater to the GIT GUD neckbeards. They found a way to take away the Dark Souls satisfaction and sense of accomplishment when you land a good hit or beat a tough enemy. I might try to beat NG+ after I finish it, I think I'm right at the end now.

There's no need to get worked up over a difference of opinion on frickin' video games of all things

 

 

Yes there is a need to get worked up. It's the internet.

The gameboy CVs are good, at least the first two. The second game fixes most of the shortcomings of the first and feels good to play, avoid the third tho, it stinx.

Any of you guys have a Raspberry Pi with Retropie that they've grown bored of that they would be willing to sell? I don't need a controller, power supply (aren't they just really generic micro USB power adapters?), or HDMI cable. 
 
I plan to use it on my CRT, I know you can do so with those cables that look like audio jacks but have Composite on the other end. Dunno how you'd adjust the resolution, though...?
 
EDIT:
 
Found a cool fella on eBay, made him an offer for a lower price if he'd be willing to leave out the controllers and cables, and he made a counter-offer for just a bit more and said he'd include all those fixin's. Still some nice people out there these days!

 

 

 

Daaaammmittt if I saw this earlier I'd have sent you one of my spares for free. As far as the CRT stuff goes you're going to have to enter some lines in the boot sector of your SD card, it's mad easy to do, just make sure you get the proper cable for it. Warning tho, the composite output on the PI is terrible, as bad or worse than Genesis 2 composite, but it definitely scratches the itch and gives you all the great scanline nostalgia.

 

 

I bought the Xbox 360 E 3.5mm to Composite cable... because apparently not every 3.5mm to Composite is not the same!

 

I'm glad I found this chart before I bought the one I found at Micro Center (ONE last cable of the sort, in the clearance bin) on a whim. The one they had said it was intended for camcorders, didn't want to take a chance and have to go back. My closest Micro Center is a bit of a hike! I mainly just went there because I got a coupon emailed to me for a free 32GB USB flash drive. Perfect for my PS2 2/ Free McBoot that I will neglect after I get the RaspPi!

 

I instead put a "hold" on an Xbox 360 E 3.5mm Composite cable at my local Gamestop. I got there and they had no idea what the heck was going on, despite getting a confirmation email that it was ready for me and shit. Luckily, I found their last remaining one sitting way in the back of the store... like, the BACK of the back. The most sad, outdated & neglected corner of the store. But at least I found one!

 

 

Yeah I had bought a camcorder one that had me going insane till I switched the red and yellow. You'll most likely want to use Lakka on it, and getting the composite output and 240p output is easy but I don't remember the actual stuff you had to add, the only tricky part is finding explanation online. There is also a shader someone made specifically for the onboard composite -> CRT route to help align the pixels a bit and make it look a little better. In the end you're most likely going to be creating custom configurations for each console (depending on if they display 240 lines or 224 lines), which is also easy but getting things to look correct can be a little frustrating, but it feels fucking good when you get it all nice..

Technically resilience of thiccness. Salami vs Liverwurst, don't want your dakk to kink like a cheap hose, or like a poorly wrapped burrito where all the filling gets pushed to the bottom as you eat it, Keep the dick meat in the dick.

Ok, I gave myself all of yesterday to sit down and really play the shit out of this game, I got to what I think is near the end.

The last boss I beat was

Spoiler

 

I've killed 2 headless dudes but I have no idea what to do with the underwater one yet, I think I'm just psyching myself out so I just avoid it. Also after I beat the first one I rang that bell and skipped the prompt without reading it, and I had no idea why I was getting rammed so hard till I finally looked through my items and cleared the curse. But honestly even after I did that I was at a point where the normal enemies were just destroying me left and right.

I did the surgeons quest, and the resulting battle with those two enemies ended up being fucking impossibly hard for me for some reason, it took me too long to beat them and the rewards were jack shit nothing!

And I'm also bitter that it took me so long to figure out the

Spoiler

 

Right now I have nothing left to do (aside from obvious story progression stuff) other than to find a samurai for that shopkeeper, beat the other headless guy and figure out how to open that door in the Ashina Reservoir, but honestly this "difficulty" is just a bit too much at this point, I don't like having to memorize button presses and timings for every single enemy in the game, it just feels like practice and not like I'm playing a game, when I'm sneaking around and mapping out an area it's awesome, but the battle engine, or at least the damage levels need severe tweaking.

#1401251 MYRONE

Posted by Beef-Clef on 14 June 2019 - 11:16 AM

I can't believe how tight you all sound, especially Myrone! The rest of you already have that chemistry from all the shit you do together but for Myrone to be that on point in his first show with you guys is absolutely killer! You could have been half that tight and it would have sounded great, fuck my dick is so hard right now.

#1401138 The home recording thread

Posted by Beef-Clef on 12 June 2019 - 12:04 PM

I think what we hear as "orchestra" or even as "strings" is the combination of sympathetic resonances, room reflections and tonal variations, the last one can be simulated perfectly with multiple recordings but the former two would need some work to get to within maybe 75% authenticity. Virtual Sound Stage is the only software I can think of that lets you create some form of amalgamated depth from multiple sources.
