I'm too cheap for records so I buy tapes


I still have a lot of games on discs. I have some CDs of music, too. In fact, it's a big thing to me that a laptop I purchase have an optical drive. If it doesn't, then I probably won't purchase it.


I recently got an Mgła vinyl. You can see everything I have by going to


I don't really have too much, most of it is CDs, I only have 4 vinyl.


I do, my dad left me some Bee Gees and Queen vinyls, they are pretty good

Did some cleaning. This is how I legitimately labeled my floppies. I hope something good is on it.

What old tech do you have?

Oh hell yeah!



Anon delivers!

I can't read the signs. That place looks awesome. I would love to wander around it. How many Game&Watch units do you guys have? In one of the pictures it looks like you have a couple of different ones.


What's your favorite thing in the museum?


File: 1463913550944.jpg (8.98 KB, 252x252, 14124273118….jpg)

The signs are in Italian, so I didn't bother focusing on them. If you are referring to the ones of piture #3, they are lyrics of songs that mention videogames, and the one with the magnifier indicates the shelves entirely dedicated to graphical adventures.

Yes, they are Game & Watch. We got about a dozend different models, and also some ripoff ones (Play & Time, anyone?)

Probably the Radikal Bikers cabinet (I love that game), sadly it's currently out of service. Luckily we have a group of people that know their shit, so maybe, someday, it will be back to work ;-;

Another cabinet we are proud of is Konami Fighting Mania (the one with the paddles to punch), it's not in the pictures but will be in the video.


So whats on the floppy?


Anyone else here into traditional western music? (I'm not saying "classical" because technically that's just one specific time period)

Fags who never delved deeper than Bach/Mozart/Beethoven (not that their music is shit, it's just entry-tier) need not apply.

Embed related, a piano concerto by a friend of Beethoven.


you lost me with "traditional". So you mean jazz?


Jazz is cool but not what I had in mind. Perhaps I should say European; jazz would go under American (still western though, and also influenced at its beginning by the European pals).

Oh also you can hear proto-jazz in Beethoven's 32th (and last) sonata, in the 2nd movement. You often find some ideas that later genres are based upon in way older music.


Here's a work by Gesualdo from his settings of the Tenebrae. He was an Italian prince around the turn of the 17th century who murdered his wife when he found out she was cheating on him, and spent most of his later life in isolation in his castle. His music is very haunting, and uncharacteristic of what we expect from the time period.
Technically, classical with the lowercase c is the general term, while Classical with the capital C is the one specific to the late 18th century.
Calling the second movement of that sonata Jazz is one of my favorite classical memes, even though I feel like it's probably heretical on some level. This sonata is one of my favorite works though. It's so beautiful, and so much larger than itself. His 31st sonata is also amazing, specifically the last movement.

When was the last time you wiped the free space on your disk, anon?

cat /dev/zero > zero.file; sync; rm zero.file


Why aren't you using transparent compression with your filesystem yet?



Do I need to use ZFS, XFS, or BTRFS for transparent file compression? Which FS do you use and are there multiple compressions?


Post songs you like





You see these guys here? Yeah, they are faggots:

Those are plenty of fags, don't you think? Yeah! So don't be one.

I give a pass to this one because it is the earliest thread and also because of Hitler dubs. You should post in it. The downside is that OP is a faggot for using trips, but it is an useful thread nonetheless.

Hey /t/

Which option is best for me? Not sure what I actually need to go the whole month. I mostly read articles and watch a few videos a day. Most of these don't seem very bad as far as pricing.


250gb should be enough. I download and stream a lot and live in a house with 2 others, we never get close to the 400gb we have


What if I don't have any cable or satellite? I forgot to mention that I stream everything to my T.V., Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime… It's way cheaper than a tv subscription. Anyone know the minimum speed I need for that or maybe how much data those services use per second/minute/hour ?


I don't know the specifics but I don't have a TV either and 400gb is enough for the 3 of us


Do you know what your upload and download speeds are ?

I've got a few questions.
I'm not posting this on /v/ because it mostly deals with the creation aspects of a game.
Suppose I wanted to make a computer game. My guess is that it wouldn't be very complex, compared to a lot of other games out there, but I could be wrong.
Anyway, here are some things about the idea:
>First person, WASD
>There would be an inventory screen from which you could equip 2 items (wear clothing or hold an object)
>No enemies, cutscenes, or character hand animations; i.e. items would not appear on screen if you're holding it in your hand.
>The environment could be interacted with by using L-click, but this would really only result in stuff like doors opening or lamps illuminating. Nothing super fancy, and objects wouldn't be able to be moved in the game world unless an event is #triggered. So no moving objects around with the mouse.
>Some rooms would use different lighting and music, but the general physics would stay the same.
Based on that, what sort of difficulty on a 1-10 scale would I face in the actual making of something with those attributes? Excluding stuff like recording sound effects and making textures/meshes, what kind of software would I be looking at? Time isn't really important, as this would mainly just be a project I'd work on in my spare time, and I'm not intending to try to sell it on steam.
If it makes any difference, I do have some programming experience (C++ and C), but its been about 6 or so years since I actually wrote anything, so I've pretty much forgotten.
Please keep the abuse to a minimum.

Is your intention to make the video game, or to make the game engine?

My suggestion would be to look at middleware, which takes a lot of the work out of it. After all, someone else has already done it, no need to reinvent the wheel if it does what you need. There is middleware that is basically complete game engines (Unity, Unreal) and there is some that does specifically lighting or physics.

This day and age, most independent developers utilize these engines, those that write their own are becoming very rare, and many are going extinct (such as the case with Two Tribes http://twotribes.com/message/rive-is-our-final-game/ )

I would personally recommend getting familiar with all the tools that are available to a game developer these days. What platform are you aiming for? Any specific operating system? Do you want controller support or just keyboard? There are a lot of questions that need to be answered in able to find the proper tools before you can even start making the game.

What is the outline for your game? Do you have a story, or is it more arcade? You said first person shooter, what other games would it be similar in feel to? etc.
