Message too long. Click here to view full text.

>>13712 >private.sh >how it works >encrypts search then decrypts it for the search provider h'wat.. How in the fuck is that useful? Who is the "search provider"? since the site is encrypted through tls (https for you plebbians) wouldn't encrypting the query be redundant anyway? This whole site smells like bullshit. Atleast with something like searx it's just an aggregate, which means it just provides a frontend to other searches, so the point there makes sense. Atleast with startpage it's a proxy so your not completely exposed. But what the fuck does this have? The encryption shit is literally buzzwords.
>>11778 >current FOSS >minimalist anything Far too many projects have been bitten by the flat design/tabletfaggotry bug and have retarded UI decisions as a result. Obviously not a problem if it's something you'll be using with the terminal anyway but annoying for primarily graphical interfaces DEs for one thing.
>>11758 >Does it matter which distro I pick in terms of vidya? If you go down the Mint route, which is fine/recommended for someone coming in new along with Ubuntu, Debian where you pay for ease of use with a bit of bloat etc, go with the MATE version over Cinnamon for slightly better performance for windowed games but a slightly clunkier experience overall. Outside of that I wouldn't worry if I were you and honestly the difference isn't hugely noticeable if you're not playing modern shit. If you get stuck at anything google for it, anything that lists working with Ubuntu generally the default results for 'how do I fix x' serarches will be Ubuntu will also work with Mint. Once you get used to the newer workflow you can consider hopping to a more advanced distro that has better features and privacy but less handholding. That can also be done straight up but it'll take you a bit longer to become fluent so it depends on your tolerance for getting frustrated. >>11771 >You have to understand that even the simplest thing you do in windows such as install a program becomes a totally new headache to re-learn when dealing with Linux. You may think that the act of double-clicking an executable is a decent way to install a program or "app" but according to the faggots that use linux, the better way to do it is waste time fucking around in the terminal while googling commands. If you're using a retard-friendly distro there'll be a graphical front end for installing software which handles most of this. Realistically the most you'll need to do is add the occasional PPA and all major software usually has a page feeding you the commands to do that so if you can copy and paste you're set. Things get more of a headache as you go for more complicated distros but then you get benefits from it.
>>13885 >If you get stuck at anything google for it It goes without saying you probably shouldn't use actual google for a search either, though annoyingly most alternatives provide much less helpful results.

RATE THE TASTE Anonymous 01/14/2020 (Tue) 18:25:06 No.11596 [Reply] [Last]
RULES Post 3 vidya games you play atm. Post 2 other games you really praise (but don't have to play currently). .... #1. The first anon to post must explain why their choice of games are better. #2. Of the 3 vidya games you play, they actually have to be games you play on a regular basis. NOT games you extol and say are good, but you don't actually ever play. Those can go in the 2nd category of the 2 games you praise. #3. The anon who replies to your comment in criticism must post their 3 current games they actually play and their 2 praiseworthy games AND explain why their choice is better than your taste. #4. Then AFTER that, the anon replying must RATE the taste with a 1-10 rating like 6/10 or something. 3 GAMES 1. TES IV: Oblivion Really large modding community and mostly nostalgiafag reasons behind why I play. I felt Skyrim was overrated and was too dark. Oblivion w/ mods is adds a ton of replayability. As for Morrowind/oldfags, it doesn't do it for me like Oblivion. I like Oblivion for its own peculiar charm #2. Warcraft 3. Honestly, anyone still buying other games when you could play Warcraft 3 is a fool. The custom games are where it's at. I've seen quite a few people playing Hearts of Iron and Paradox Games when you get the better 3D equivalent in Warcraft 3 w/o all the crap. Plus it is a much older game, so my garbage computer can handle it better #3. SCP Secret Laboratory. Fun multiplayer experience for free ...

Fucking ARMA of all things keep getting all the cool mods. Shooters really are dead. https://youtu.be/k0OBZunSwqE
>>11887 Looks like he's holding a giant toy boat.
>>13419 >Fucking ARMA of all things keep getting all the cool mods. ARMA gets the cool mods because it's basically unplayable vanilla or even in PvP. Mod it to death and you get a halfway decent coop game at best.
Is there a way to mod Unity games? UABE doesn't work on a number of them since the game files are dumped in the StreamingContent path as files without extensions. Most likely encrypted since they're all missing headers when opened in a hex editor. >>11887 BF1918? Go check out the new update, the high res textures make it look real good.

Bug Fables Anonymous 01/10/2020 (Fri) 23:45:43 No.10957 [Reply] [Last]
Bug Mario is a Paper Mario ripoff made because Nintendo refuses to make another Paper Mario RPG game and would probably fuck it up anyways if they tried. It came out around the tail end of last year and has had a demo out for a long while. While I'd say it's significantly shorter and less visually polished than Paper Mario, it makes up for it with gameplay. To differentiate itself from Paper Mario's combat the partner system is replaced with a three bug party where positioning, front, middle, or back, matters. The bug in front gets +1 attack, the back gets +1 defense, and there are a couple badges medals that boost defense for the front or back. However, the order of your bugs cannot be changed, and they must be rotated circularly. There is no defending option, only "do nothing", unless you equip the badge medal for it, and there's only two of that badge. You can relay turns to other bugs, however for each extra attack they make in the same turn their attack is reduced by 1 and each bug can only relay once per turn. The party is clearly divided into a tank, attacker, and buff/debuffer, but you're not strictly limited to using them this way and badges medals can easily change your strategy. The first few enemies in the game are those that are most clearly ripped off from Paper Mario as they were made early on before the devs got more original. The seedling is clearly a goomba and has a headbonk attack; the jellyshroom is clearly a blooper and floats in the same way; the inichas is clearly a koopa, has a rolling attack, and can be flipped on it's back to lower it's defense. A difference you might notice to increase the games difficulty is that the Inichas flips back over and attacks in the same turn, unlike koopas who would waste a turn flailing. There are some quality of life improvements from the Paper Mario games. The warps are centralized to one area, and after a while there will be a shortcut NPC that allows you warp from that central area to a few nearby areas you may frequent. You have a list of accepted quests so you don't forget them, and while many are acceptable from quest boards anywhere there are a bunch that are started without the quest boards. There is a boss rush accessible mid way through the game where you can fight all bosses beaten thus far and you can access the hardest versions of bosses through it even if you haven't chosen to play on the hardest difficulty. However you can only rush either mini-bosses or regular bosses. Sadly, there are only a couple unique rewards from it for beating a few bosses in a row, and after that it's all currency and no trophy items. The badge medal shops have an option to reroll the available medals instead of having to leave town to reroll them. Berries are capped at 999, but there is a bank where you can store up to 10000 berries. Interest accrues every half hour by 3% and 6% once you first reach 500 berries in the bank. Fair warning, the game is publised by Dangen Entertainment. Dangen's co-founder once went on Resetera to lament the presence of loli in Japan after spending time working there, though I have no archive. Despite this, there's one moment in the post-game that has me convinced it's a lolicon undertone. The game is only $20. There was a link to the game in the bunker share thread, but the thread is gone now. The game, version 1.0.3b, is on the vola for now. It's fairly small, a little over 200MB, just like an actual Gamecube game and was made in Unity. The latest patch out a few days ago, 1.0.4, has several gameplay affecting bugfixes. Saves are easily transferable

>>11716 RSS feeds could have prevented social media in general, frankly.
>>11739 True, that way developers can ignore any feedback since it's a one way protocol.
It seems that I have to explain myself about what has happened here. Apparently, this thread was getting derailled so I thought the best idea was to ultimately clean it up to the point it as only discussion about the game itself. I know about whole controversy behind OP and the devs of this game, but there comes a point when people are talking about off-topic things like who's the shill, Brenton, etc. All I want to see is on-topic discussion, you can deviate a little via the discussion about the dev team or even giving your criticisms about the game and the dev team. However, APNG posts should be saged and don't turn this thread into a pseudo-meta thread about how I run the board. If you have any grievances with me, talk to me on the meta thread >>>/meta/1986 From now on, before I delete posts I'll make an archive and post it on the meta thread.

TF2V GAME NIGHT PREPARATION THREAD: FROM THE ASHES EDITION Anonymous 12/04/2019 (Wed) 13:53:22 No.6436 [Reply] [Last]
So. What happened with TF2V was frankly a shame - fags just stopped playing it because of /vg/ drama and (in part) because fags involved did not move out of discuck. Let's play some fucking videogames with what we have left.

>What is it?
TF2 but without hats or any other gay shit (there was a LOT of it) and up to Mann-conomy update. Updates fucked the game and introduced things beyond the scope of "up to Mann-conomy", which lead to anons fucking off.
>Why play it?
>Why not TF2 with stock-only plugin/TF2007/some other derivative?
TF2's filesize is around 22 GB at the time. TF2V is 4.6 GB. As for TF2007, it's made on Facepunch. Rather than entertaining a Facepunch mod (or whatever else, for that matter), let's try to salvage what we can from what used to be an 8/v/ project that we've had many good game nights with.

More games next weekend; this thread is for server configuration, tech support questions and stocking up on micspam.

Also, keep in mind, my internet's shit and everyone will be getting ~400 ping if I'm going to be hosting. If any of you offers to host for us instead, that'd be great. That said, it'll still be a good time. Also, expect things to be more or less dead when starting out.

>>12716 There are other missions but you do return to the arena planet a fair amount for new armors and certain boss fights and whatnot.

>>12891 >no arguments Not worth my time to bother. Maybe refute any of what I posted and I'll consider it. I could post pages upon pages about the abomination that is L4D2 and how Valve ripped off the player base. The basically killed the community with the release of L4D2. Before it came out things were thriving. L4D2 was a cash grab and an attempt to do yearly releases like CoD. If they would have continued down the path they were going part 3 would have had aiming down sights most likely. Thankfully, most people got tired of their bullshit and either stuck with the first game or moved on to something else. They bet the farm on normalfags who gave up on the game after 2 weeks like normalfags do. Never forget: They promised new maps and other content to players of L4D1 only to release L4D2 a year later. It's the definition of a rushed game and it was designed for console players.

So I was playing this on the Vita and it's amazing. It starts off slow, but after you get familiar with it (which will also be when you've unlocked some items and additional characters), it begins to shine. It has lots of issues with graphics and balance but fuck it, smashing enemies with a bunch of mines or jumping all over the map with a bunch of jump power-ups is a great feeling. Also, I only played alone and apparently it's even better in MP. On the other hand, Risk of Rain 2 is useless (at least on the Switch). It's in 3D and aiming with the circle pad is unbearable. Likely much better on the PC.
