Mrmo Tarius!

Also had two seizures and a nosebleed yesterday. I just want it to stop. When will it stop? When do I got to be normal again?

Dennis (Level 1 Depressed) at 9/30/2014 4:03:00 AM

Roger that, will add DB32 and will check out Arne's WIP versions. Meanwhile I've also added a NESlike palette (I say NESlike because no one on the entire internet seems to know how to accurately generate what colors the real hardware produces, so I based my own generator on (vague at best) technical specs of the PPU, NTSC signal descriptions and YPBPR to RGB conversion. Without having real hardware to examine though I won't claim it is THE NES palette, so it's just NES* (NESlike) :D. ).

edit: Ok. DB32 is in now (also it's possible to influence the text movement in the hello world demo by clicking/holding the mouse button now). I think I'll leave out the WIP palettes for now. Defining palettes is easy in Refugee Lib, so if anyone wants to use this (still very early version) of the lib, it's really simple to define additional palettes. :)


user
surt (Level 11 Godfather) at 9/30/2014 3:51:00 AM

DB32 as well and Arne's got 32 and 64 colour palettes though AFAIK still WIPs.


user
Dennis (Level 1 Depressed) at 9/30/2014 2:14:00 AM

Oh cool, both Arne and DawnBringer state on their pages their palettes are free to use. Sweet! If any of you two guys read this by chance, thanks! So I will add this(as AA16) and this(as DB16).

edit: added.


user
Dennis (Level 1 Depressed) at 9/30/2014 2:00:00 AM

@surt: I'm playing with the thought of adding methods (in an optional addon though) to render oldschool modes from given bytearrays where you specify the bytearray(containing the bitfields) and the indexed palette and then having the method interprete those bits to produce a visual result resembling the oldschool hardware mode. One of those methods could be one which does just directly interprete the found bits as palette indices without changing the shapes of the pixels themselves. I intend to learn OpenGL/WebGL too and I want to add WebGL rendering routines to the lib for 2D as well as 3D graphics. I'm sure I'll find a way to make it speedy, I think OpenGL even supports indexed textures... I remember reading about it a few years back, may need some special states set and may not be in the ES2.0 subset though.

About my gallery... well, that's a story involving depression, Zen philosophy and mentally "moving on and letting go of old stuff" to free the mind for new stuff. I thought about reuploading a compilation image though, containing everything I had in the old gallery just for documentations sake.

Now I need to find the Arne and Dawnbringer palettes and I should probably ask for permission before including them.

Guys, If you want to read it 

is the opinion of foreign tourists over Brazil. 

Tourist Americans, Russians, Japanese ... Read really cool :) 

(But it's in Portuguese, but can translate)


user
surt (Level 11 Godfather) at 9/29/2014 12:09:00 PM

The Dawns and the Arnes of course.

So will it provide a facility for indexed rendering then? I've thought about doing this in the past but couldn't think of a speedy way to do it without resorting to WebGL shaders.

EDIT: What the hell happened to your gallery!

I guess you go to 'view' -> 'new view' and it creates a new window.

In photoshop to do the trick you go to 'window' -> 'arrange' -> 'new window for' :)


user
ADrawingMan (Level 8 Shodan) at 9/29/2014 8:18:00 AM

Does anyone know how to get a preview image window to pop up in GIMP? Like for example, you're zoomed in on one part of your canvas, but you have a seperate window that shows what your canvas looks like zoomed out? I tried searching for it, but I guess I'm wording my question wrong so I don't get the right results. Anyone know how to enable what I'm talking about?

Hi everyone. :) It's been a while. Working on a lib for making games. Short early wip demo featuring retro colors! (needs a decent/recent browser like FF or Chrome). My question is: Which other well-known (from retro computers or community made) palettes would you like to see included directly in the lib?


user
Lehmure (Level 2 Corporal) at 9/28/2014 7:51:00 AM

Deponia is a good one, sadly kinda doesn't run on my PC. Jaysus, i really need a new PC.


user
greenraven (Level 9 Executioner) at 9/28/2014 7:30:00 AM

Ok, fair enough, guess it's not dead. XD

Also I played 2 out of the 3 Deponia's. I only stopped because I encountered an annoying little glitch that made Roofus disappear off the screen... permenantly.

And tinc clearly you're out of touch with modern gaming. No time to grind? You don't have to! Microtransactions is the name of the game in this day and age. For the low low price of $60 Blizzard will do all the grinding for you!

Alot of new witty point and click games. Primordia for example. 


user
greenraven (Level 9 Executioner) at 9/27/2014 8:53:00 AM

I'm mostly sad because the majority of those games are now forever sealed away in time. They just don't make games like that anymore. Witty point&click adventures are pretty much dead as a genre.

And a lot of things have become a lot of things over the course of time. I have a swastika hairloom, I guess that makes me a Nazi.

user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) at 9/26/2014 10:56:00 AM

Not that unusual. I'm very much the same.  I can deal with aggressive nutcases but I still struggle greatly with actual pleasant conversation most of the time.   Just based on life experience.  My 20's mostly consisted of having to deal with some pretty bad people a lot of the time but my 30's have so far been spent in quite a dull little town with a close-knit community of really nice folks... and I still, 4 years on, find social interaction very difficult.   Now I'm much more comfortable being up on the stage playing a character instead of being myself.  It's the main reason I'm even in a drama group.

And  then you get war vets some of which almost miss their time in battle cos that's what they were good at and they have trouble adjusting to a normal life again too.   Now I can't compare what I go through to what they've had to, but I can kinda relate to it.


user
greenraven (Level 9 Executioner) at 9/26/2014 10:22:00 AM

Is it weird that I'd rather get mugged that be forced into polite social interactions?

I went to a thing last night and people were making me extremely uncomfortable with their polite questions and inquiries of where I work, what I study, what my hobbies are. All these questions have the same vague answer because I rarely ever leave the house these days on account of my MILD IRRATIONAL FEAR OF OTHER HUMAN BEINGS!!!!one!!!!eleven!!!!

And then when I get home I go to the park for my midnight jog like I always do, and I happen to come by some crackheads getting high in the bushes. And I thought to myself that there's probably a good chance I can get mugged right now, and I was surprisingly fine with that.

So the moral of the story is that I'm apparenlty more comfortable in a pitch black park with murderous thugs than a polite social gathering.

king_bobston (Level 5 Soldier) at 9/25/2014 8:07:00 AM

If you work with the fitting size of the document (16x16 for 16x16 tile) you could just draw the middle and then go filers->others->offset, check wrap around and type in half the pixels (in my example 8) to move the border to the middle. Then you can work on the transition. If you know you will work often in the same size, you should make a custom action for it (you probably should anyway, since moving it back and forth can be quite usuable).

Edit: What I mean is described in the video jal already posted, around 11:30 he starts speaking of it.


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) at 9/25/2014 7:50:00 AM
