Claiming your target is suffering from mental health issues and advising them to seek help while simultaneously sending further messages harassing them, after you’ve been told to stop.

You make claims that you don't fulfill. You make attacks on my character. I don't know who you are, and I didn't request for a anyone to come here and have a public meltdown in my replies.

Declare yourself morally righteous, walking away from your pile of unrealized assertions. Go away, and don't come back.

That video is of an emulator. The emulator is always going to be slower and more complicated than software running natively on the hardware. By definition.

So you should have no problem at all matching the speed and ease by simply doing it outside of an emulator, directly on the computer.

@stevelord @amatecha

Try it. Replicate that video with Pascal on a modern computer. I want to see.

@stevelord @amatecha

HyperCard came with a large, comprehensive, and illustrated pair of manuals. General and programming. It also came with interactive tutorials and demonstrations in the software.

I learned to use Photoshop as a child in the early 90s with nothing but the manual.

In 2020, free ad-filled YouTube videos fill in some of the gaps left by crap documentation and inattention. Sift through 500 videos with ads on how to remove zits to try to learn how some tool works.

@stevelord @amatecha Mini vMac, so the floppy speed is instant. But you can see it’s way easier to use than a modern computer. Try making a GUI app with a custom icon in any modern OS.

@stevelord @amatecha

That's odd, because documentation is specifically one of the things that I think is horrible nowadays.

@stevelord I also use systems from the 80s and 90s and I think they are easier to use.

@dualhammers @neauoire @stephen The version for PSP has a better translation, though the gameplay is really laggy and makes the battles slower.

@dualhammers @neauoire @stephen I wonder if whoever Photoshopped that image knew that, or if the portrait was chosen randomly

@dualhammers @neauoire @stephen yeah but he was also a villain and a nasty character, not one of the good guys, so... probably not what people are intending to boost

@stephen @neauoire yeah this isn't a real quote from the game, someone falsified this image.

@theneko the boosted indirect gives nice color interaction between the objects, but it also ends up oversaturating the scene, so you have to grade it to reduce the most extreme saturated colors (transform to some saturation+luminance space and then use an anti-S curve on the saturation)

@theneko try turning down ambient occlusion and turning up/exaggerating indirect/bounced lighting :)

@neauoire A lot of the stuff in this file – maybe most of it – seems to be debug printing strings, though.
