There are people lurking, though, I'm sure.  Like me. :p

Emulation on a DS works fairly nicely, with the one exception of the odd screen size.  Depending on the game, you either need to leave black bars on the sides, or crop off the top/bottom of the screen a little.  It's not terrible, though.

Edit: well, at least, nes, snes, and scumm emulation works well. I haven't tried much of anything else, really.

Just delete the file.  I'm pretty sure I had that problem a long time ago.

Cedric, I'd be interested to see the numbers for the other countries accessing the downloads. :p

Fort Wayne, Indiana.  I just moved here over the summer.  Two for Indiana, then? :p

It runs pretty slow on Genesis.  You could try it on an emulator first, get an idea of whether or not you're going to be able to play it.  I played SC1 a lot on a old compy in dos, and now the Genesis version is way too slow to be bearable for me. :/

Someone let that redditer who got a zeroed blue channel know about the 'full screen' fix...

Yes, please! If someone's got an account, could you inform at Reddit that on OSX the colors work correctly in fullscreen mode.
(I couldn't for some reason make an account at Reddit with any browser, the joys of OSX I guess Wink )

I seem to have built the app against bogus SDL/SDL_image frameworks... using different version of them in the .app fixed the color issue. I'll use the better frameworks in the 0.1.1. release!

I let them know.

Yeah, I thought you were supposed to post in English too.  If that's not a guideline on this forum, it is on most.

Use something like TortoiseSVN to do an SVN checkout.

While we are obliged to make the source code available, we hope that the general public will respect our wishes to not go poking around. This makes it hard to keep things a surprise for al the people who want to be surprises.

So I ask eveyone, please do not go poking around in there, and please do not encourage others to poke around in there.

We would like to keep things under wraps as much as we can. The whole point of this project is to surprise the community with somethign enw and cool. It would be a shame if we lost power over this and the general public went in there and revealed new images and the like


In order to play it on linux, we have to download and compile ourselves, though, right?

What if they're, ahem, attracted to their own sex?  Off-topic, I know.  
Yay, the 30th is coming soon Smiley
Didn't there used to be a lesbian that posted on here? Is she still around?  Or maybe it was a gay guy.  I don't remember now, all I remember was wondering why it was brought up.

And the ladies play this game for Zex and Hayes, if I understand correctly.  Why Zex, I'll never know.

Bout the same, i suppose.  seems like less topics are being posted in, but the few that are are moving faster.  Well, probably the slightest bit slower, overall.  It's to be expected though.
13  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Starbase Café / Re: revitalizing the forum on: September 21, 2010, 09:54:09 pm
I know it is, that's why I didn't join the discussion.  So, is there anyone at all here who agrees with him?  even a little bit?  Tongue

This forum comes up to 10, maybe 15% of the insanity of some forums I'm on. Don't worry guys, I love you all anyway.

I don't mean that the board itself is insane.  It seems pretty laid back right now, and when I was here before.  I meant that the posters are insane, more than the posts themselves.  Nothing particularly insane happened on the board with shiver, but him leaving like that is kinda insane.  Am I wording what I mean to say correctly?

Why do you need other people to share their opinions in order to defend yours?

Ummm... Morale..? What can I say, I can get discouraged if I'm "debating" with a mountain of people whose stances on the matter are all opposite to mine. It's something psychological, I suspect. At that point, I lose my will to continue.  Roll Eyes
If it was just myself versus one other person, that'd be fine, but I felt quite overwhelmed by the opposition.

So if you feel your stance on an issue is correct, but you're in the minority, then you can't discuss it?  It looks like if you had a good arguement, it wouldn't matter how many people opposed it, it'd still be a good arguement.    Is your morale low because the other side's argument doesn't make any sense and is frustrating you, or because it's a good one?

As far as I'm concerned, it's a debate as long as both sides are presenting valid arguements and counterpoints and such, and stops being a debate when it degenerates to personal attacks.  It didn't really seem like either side was getting personally attacked at all.  Why do you feel the need to put "debating" in quotes?
