    Medal of Honor: Allied Assault War Chest on Pyra/OpenPandora?

    ptitSeb just has to stare at the code and it ports itself

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    Recently finished Fallout 2 (un-modded) on my phone thanks to the Fallout2-CE port It fixes some of the first game most glaring issues (but not all of them) and is much more vast and rich. This comes with some drawbacks as the experience is a bit more watered down and it really shows that...

    War in Ukraine

    The way I see it, Macron isn't an agent of one entity in particular. He's just an agent of big companies and rich people. And I don't think it's just because he's getting paid for it (though he is, there is for example a clear proof that he had been paid by Uber to pass laws so that they could...

    *Sniff* they all grown up? GP32, Wiz, etc!

    If I remember correctly, my Zodiac would start, display the splash screen and then freeze with white noise in the speakers. But to be honest I don't have any use for it now. For the Pandora nubs, they were custom-made with some internal firmware for calibration and they are no longer available...

    *Sniff* they all grown up? GP32, Wiz, etc!

    I don't have any GP device, I have a Tapwave Zodiac but it's broken (or bricked, I'm not sure). I still have my Pandora, I'll try to get its LCD cable repaired/replaced next week. The left nub stopped working properly a few years ago and the the right nub isn't working very well either but the...

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    If I understand correctly, wrapping a library requires some code specific for that library. Doing so for commonly used lib is interesting but you can't do it for all libs.

    I've been playing Fallout 1&2 on my phone thanks to the Android port of Fallout CE. I've finished the first one. I realized I only remembered half the game so I wonder if I really had finished it when I first played it a few months after its release. It's still fun, it still has a few obvious...

    The Communication Cube

    That analogue clock story is probably blown out of proportion, but I also fail to see it as a major concern. Most people nowadays can't read time on a shepherd dial or a solar ring or can't start a fire with flint and steel.

    It's been increasingly bad since the release of ChatGPT-4. Now for many searches the top results will be LLM-written bullshit "SEO" articles. Internet search is becoming useless.

    Absurdism corner

    The US government doesn't borrow money: it issues it. All that talk of "borrowing money" or "spending more than we have" is mostly a way to justify budget cuts. The US government could repay all this debt by entering some numbers in a spreadsheet.

    Absurdism corner

    I don't see how it's absurd for a government to spend 6 times more on non-army stuff vs army stuff. If anything, the defense spending of the US is the absurdity. As for the amounts, it has to be compared with the GDP growth. It'd be absurd not to spend more when your economy generates more. For...

    There's a lot of padding in the Mass Effects. If I remember correctly it's a bit less obvious in the sequels and the better combat makes it a bit less boring. Anyway, Mass Effect is still a pretty generic Sci-Fi action-RPG. It's generally decent with a few good moments here and there. Where it...

    I had a similar experience with Alice: Madness Returns. I was ready to try an "unofficial patch" to remove the activation/copy protection when it finally started working correctly.

    The Communication Cube

    So the cost of "colossal scale piracy" for Nintendo is $2.4M? They got it better than Gary Bowser Anyway, another case of "Felony contempt of business model", but it shows some interesting points: Nintendo didn't attack on the TPM/DRM circumventing only but also used the facts that the...

Even though it's dressed up as a socialist initiative, it still offers some approaches that I wouldn't call "socialist". In any case, it's an interesting way to learn...

    dreamcast.

    The PS2 had a very special architecture with many processors and units working in parallel, so it's more complex to emulate than the Dreamcast. It's also more powerful than the Dreamcast. The Gamecube architecture was simpler and closer to the Dreamcast but the hardware was far more powerful.
