System Shock 3 development team is "no longer employed" Anonymous 02/09/2020 (Sun) 19:17:13 No.14939 [Reply] [Last]
https://archive.ph/DNWmQ >The System Shock 3 development team has reportedly been let go by developer OtherSide. >In a report by our sibling site VGC, an anonymous post purportedly from a former OtherSide Entertainment developer has confirmed the entire team is "no longer employed" and that the game was "critically behind". >An anonymous poster claiming to be a former OtherSide developer posted on RPGCodex with the username Kin Corn Karn, stating: "The only reason I'm posting is because I saw so much confusion about the state of the company and the project. I thought some first-person information would be welcome. >"I never suggested we were halfway done, core systems are a great foundation for a game but most of the work is content development which we were critically behind in, both in real assets and in tool support for an efficient pipeline. So basically, a sequel to a masterpiece we all know would have failed essentially got canceled. Good riddance.

>>15214 Recommend looking up a guide for system shock 2 builds because the game is sincerely unenjoyable if you're not autistically min-maxing the entire time or playing with psi. Games shit, stick with SS1. Also for SS1 max out the story difficulty, it adds a timer to beat the game before Shodan completes her schemes, those deaths start to matter then as it's all about the time you've lost by dying.

>>15340 You're right, it was more interesting with a timer. Still, it wasn't hard enough for my liking. I should've played on max story difficulty on first try. Now that I know how to play it took less than 5 hours to fully clear every level.

Lets have a CRPG thread What are you playing? What was your favourite recent CRPG to come out? Who was best companion of the decade? I decided to do a new pathfinder playthrough, hadn't played it since the last DLC. I enjoy the game overall more than D:OS2 in the current state but the bugs at release were a nightmare. I think DOS2 is for fun for solo runs though. Anyway going for a full unfair playthrough cos I'm sadistic, rate my party; Sylvan Sorc MC Air Blast Kineticist Caster Druid Minmaxed dragon disciple meme character Paladin Freebooter multiclass, gonna be 11paladin/4 freebooter for the bond and mark of justice. I'm not sure about this char, but I wanted 1 more frontline and wanted a reason to have freebooter. Ecclesithurge cleric with animal/community domain

>>17459 Sorry, I only played Geneforge.
>>17447 >That implies its a male-only species >lists HuMAN In languages that have grammatical gender, male is the default gender for grammatical cases, and "-man" is used for both genders in most cases. Female gender is used (and required) when referring to a woman as a person. Avoiding gender and "-man" is trannyspeak that stems from this nigger language.
>>17447 The word "man" actually means human, and the more recent use of the word as solely male human is the less accurate one. The proper English word for male human should be "were "or even "wereman" if you will (compare to "woman"). Of course, in the end, we all know that women aren't truly human, so they should be called just "wo".

>>16276 Neat! Seems there's a whole lot of mods to add/update actually. https://froidromhacks.org/category/projects/ Lately haven't been doing much though, I'm trying to get through Sega Hard Girls. Was playing Chasm earlier but I've just written that off as irredeemably boring. Not bad, just so bland.
My favourite kusoge continues to be useful for examples. https://froidromhacks.org/gun-gun-pixies-jp-english-mod-patcher-v0-98-vita/ For obtaining decrypted data files I recommend using psvpfsparser since it can be done over USB. e.g. $ psvpfsparser -i /media/<username/vita>/app/PCSG01013/ -o ./PCSG01013_base -z <ZRIF STRING> $ psvpfsparser -i /media/<username/vita>/patch/PCSG01013/ -o ./PCSG01013_update -z <ZRIF STRING> ZRIFs from NPS Browser. This tool no longer needs external online F00D provider. Also adapted the installer for Linux users since it was trivial, just extract attached ZIP to where the Windows installer is, make sure the decrypted game/patch are in the right spot and Xdelta3 is installed. Then run the .sh

Sketchful: Return to Normalcy Anonymous 02/17/2020 (Mon) 04:20:58 No.16891 [Reply] [Last]
New Sketchful thread created because I feel like it. I know I didn't start a game this weekend but I'll make it up by starting one tomorrow (Monday, February 17th) at approximately 6 PM CST. Mark your calendars! I'm hoping this time we get enough attention garnered so that we won't have to resort to advertising on 8koon. Remember: Vidya only. See you there.

THAT'S RIGHT! SET YOUR CLOCK ALARMS, ANOTHER GAME OF SKETCHFUL WILL BEGIN IN 3 HOURS Be there or be square! I will be posting this on 8koon as well since last game we had on monday went pretty well. I think it's cause I put a disclaimer that crossposters should not attend. I should hope they follow those rules again this time. REMEMBER, 3 HOURS! BE THERE, ON THE DOT.

Coop/Multiplayer Cyclical Anonymous 01/31/2020 (Fri) 16:46:05 No.13595 [Reply] [Last]
This is an experimental thread just to see how this idea works. It's inspired by talk in >>13509, so this thread isn't enforced but your participation, if interested, should be noted. Feel free to edit this post if you are a moderator if there are any revisions that should be made. Whenever you have any sort of game you're looking to play with someone, just post it here. This isn't for a mod-sanctioned gamenight as that something they'll sticky, just if you want to play any sort of game. There are three reasons as to why I think this is a good idea: >to prevent game threads being filled with posts of no substance like "Anyone playing?" and "I'm hosting now please join," >to reduce the creation rate of threads about the same game, >and so that people don't have to create a new thread for everything they want to play. As to what constitutes the need for a separate thread is something I trust you should be able to judge, but it's probably best to keep in mind the complexity of the setup and the number of people estimated to show up based on interest. This thread is intended to be cyclical because the posts that should be in this thread should only be relevant for a short period of time. Any discussion about hosting troubles should be moved to the game's own thread as that information can be easily archived. The format of the post is something expected to evolve over time into something uniform, which should make non-applicable posts in the thread easy to filter or Ctrl + F. I don't have a proposal as to how it should look at the moment, but I do think its important it at least contains the platform, the game intended to be hosted/played, identifying account or server names if necessary, the time at which you intend to host/play, any extraneous information such as voice chat invitations and whatnot, and a quote link to the thread of the game if your game is in the catalog. I know there already exists threads with similar subjects, but they don't intend on being cyclical like this one so I don't want to derail those.

Worst game you ever played Anonymous 11/08/2019 (Fri) 05:51:21 ID: 58fd11 No.3420 [Reply] [Last]
What is the worst game you have ever played? No meme shit like Halo or Fallout 76. Actual bad games.

Her story, Gone Home, Dragon's lair on the NES, Night trap or Mortal Kombat 2 in the arcade tier.

For those who don't know MK2's AI is completely broken and reads inputs then immediately counters anything you do unless you do 1 loop which tricks the AI into letting you hit it, then repeating over and over. This makes the game unplayable unless you want to exploit that loop from match 3 onwards. It's also unavoidable as the difficulty switch is broken and it will always hit max difficulty half way up the ladder no matter if you set it to easy.

New Wurm Unlimited server coming soon-ish Anonymous 02/03/2020 (Mon) 05:27:03 No.13957 [Reply] [Last]
For those who aren't lurking 8glow, a new Wurm server is currently undergoing preparations and should be operational within six months. While this is a large time frame, the server still being in development means that discussion now will have great influence on how it turns out. The intended map has been linked. Here's his OP, it's a bit barren but make what you will out of it and posting about your experiences on previous/current servers will certainly help: >it's an experimental server including the new sindusk wyvernmods release >I have a preliminary writeup for the server here including mods and settings: https://pastebin.com/2jEp2Bvf >server is still in development hell regarding testing all the various shit that needs to be quality tested. i'll make a thread beforehand when the server is going to go live. >to do: >add in some overworld points of interest >revisit mod settings for conflicts >investigate tower chaining bullshit and how to turn it on/off >place faction spawns >etc If you're new Wurm is a first-person survival game made by Notch and friends before he left to work on Minecraft. It has heavy emphasis on town building and cooperative play and, with mods, is in-depth enough that I'd describe it as Dwarf Fortress from the perspective of a dwarf. Each player has a number of skills that follow logarithmic growth, meaning that skillgain slows down the higher your skills is. It also means that you have to heavily depend on others like how it is in real life. There are farmers, woodcutters, carpenters, miners, blacksmiths, cooks, breeders, priests, bricklayers, stone carvers and so on, with some of these having a number of subskills that you will likely not be able to specialize all of. It's possible to survive by yourself, but to thrive, you need a community or be a botting faggot. It's not just a single community, either. I know previous servers incorporated other communities like 4chan, Reddit, and various other smaller forums, though 8chan always had the strongest presence as that's how niche it is. It's an experiment in societal development and an experience that has yet to be replicated adequately by any other multiplayer game.

Co-op Spotlight: Monster Hunter PSP Anonymous 01/28/2020 (Tue) 17:14:42 No.13148 [Reply] [Last]
I had this thread on vch for about two weeks now and have posted about it in the Monster Hunter general here, but now that vch has devolved into shitposting now that it's shutting down I think it's time for it to come here. I'm aware that there's a Monster Hunter general, but I feel that this will de-rail that thread. If there ends up being a similar thread on 8kun about this, just know that it isn't me. In this thread, my hope is that it remains focused on Freedom Unite and Portable 3rd. >Monster Hunter on the PSP? I don't have one of those! Fortunately, PSP emulation is fantastic, being able to run easily even on smartphones. With a little know-how, you should also be able to get multiplayer working. >So what do I need then? All you need is a computer, PPSSPP, the necessary ISOs, access to your router, and a gamepad preferably. >Why Freedom Unite and Portable 3rd? Both these games are the easiest to run and configure for multiplayer. In regards to Portable 3rd, it only has a partial English translation as it was never released outside of Japan. It's the one recommended for beginning the franchise with even if you can't read it all as its a little less clunky, far prettier, and has some quality of life changes to make organization and management easier. If you do start with this and can't read Japanese, though, you will be wanting to check the wiki for and asking for help in this thread to explain certain things. SETUP A more detailed explanation is at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1FAeZ83cX7HCiyNvRYGvlzYmOMVEXDxRMkQp5HM5YlG4/pub, just ignore the stuff about coldbird. Here's a more compressed explanation: The default settings in the most recent release of PPSSPP should be enough, but just make sure that you have networking enabled, the ad hoc server is myneighborsushicat.com, port offset is zero, and that the virtual MAC address has been randomized, which you can do by clicking on it a few times. PPSSPP should also have a firewall exemption. The more challenging aspect is that you will most likely have to configure your router for the online component to work, but it's still fairly easy to get working The game relies on a peer-to-peer network; the ad hoc server works similarly to a torrent tracker, in that it merely facilitates these connections.You'll have to log into your router, which can be done by putting into your browser. You'll want to either enable DMZ, which I don't know about so don't ask me, or forward UDP port 10000 and TCP ports 20001 to 20004 to whatever internal IP address is assigned to your computer/smartphone.

>>17269 Ban. A pause can ruin momentum and give people plenty of time to think in a time where they should be under pressure. >>17358 Since it's meterless it has plenty of weaknesses. When applied correctly, it's very strong. When used improperly or predictably, it can screw you over. >The fact you're referring to Sonico as anything but a design mistake makes me leery I don't think I've mentioned Sonico but she's who own level of absurd. Despite the whole cast being viable and strong. Her gimmicks put her on another level. >Sonico comes with cats. The cats do the attacking and most are disjointed hitboxes. >Sonico can jump above you and still hit low. Because the cats attack you from under while she attacks from above. >She can charge a cat for an ublockable attack. She can still use the other cats while that one is charging. >There's one grey cat with an "M" on its head that slowly follows Sonico but lays down to relax sometimes. This cat is actually a 0 frame command grab super. If she activates the cat while you're close to it. You're fucked. >She'll summon allies from all sides of the screen like Captain Commando in MvC2 or Maori from Arcana Heart. Meaning she can overhead you from across the screen. They also count as physical attacks and not projectiles so you can't roll through them. >Can easily setup to very damaging assists because her grabs, special moves, and supers keep you stunned for ages. >Lv3 super makes it so you can't block any attacks and must shield. If activated while you're at low health, you will have a very hard time making your way to her. >Best anti-air in the game that reaches very high and she has no trouble comboing from it.

>>17362 I'll make sure to judge pauses as rounds lost, unless I see it's an emergency or accident. The case here @JapanAnimEvo's MAAB Top3 was autism: Iori player knew he was going to lose and wanted to click rematch to speed it up, he was correct in the end, but ref. said to continue because 1player had to perfectly execute it regardless. Like the English idiom, Don't Count Your Chickens Before They Hatch. I found it hilarious, not because the pause was of anger/fit, but autism “he's going to deplete my health anyways, pause, rematch."
