DaemonFC[m]"For more on the port's technical nitty-gritty, this excerpt from  Fabien Sanglard's Game Engine Black Book: Doom is definitely worth a read. As for Linden himself, he went on to help create Bleem, a PlayStation emulator that was actually sold commercially back in the '90s."Sep 11 03:48
DaemonFC[m]Yes, Bleem ran Playstation games on the Sega Dreamcast and PC. Sony sued. Sep 11 03:49

DaemonFC[m]<schestowitz__ "not great either, but nowhere ne"> Yeah, but the "scheme" is over and the virus is basically forcing a work slowdown, so productivity in the toilet. Sep 11 18:52
DaemonFC[m]Of course, lower productivity may lead to more jobs, so there's that.Sep 11 18:52
DaemonFC[m]They always say productivity gains are great. Not for workers. They usually just fire people, don't raise wages, and then expect more output.Sep 11 18:52
DaemonFC[m]The only good moment in Battlefield Earth was when the Psychlo (sp?) sent them out to mine gold and they grab some from Fort Knox and he says "I'll expect twice as much next time since you found time to SMELT IT INTO BRICKS!". Of course, there's no way they could have smelted it into bricks. That takes heavy industry and skill, so the Psychlo boss guy (John Travolta) must not have been very smart.Sep 11 18:54
DaemonFC[m]But the point remains. If you do extra, they see that, and expect more next time, with no raise. Sep 11 18:55

DaemonFC[m]The first 100 days of Biden depends on what Congress looks like. If Republicans stay in the Senate, then they'll deny a relief bill and watch the economy fall over and try to blame him.Sep 11 18:57
DaemonFC[m]It's going to look awfully tempting to invoke Trump precedent where he says "There's a National Emergency and I'm re-allocating funds.".Sep 11 18:57

DaemonFC[m]Medicare started paying based on package instead of procedure in most cases due to the Affordable Care Act. Sep 11 21:40
DaemonFC[m]The result was that Medicare ended up saving $70 billion a year.Sep 11 21:40
DaemonFC[m]Hospitals and doctors were perversely rewarded for doing more procedures even if they weren't necessary. It was bill cramming.Sep 11 21:41
DaemonFC[m]But part of the reason why private insurance and cash rates are so high now is because the hospitals and doctors are making  up for Medicare by taking  it out of someone else's ass. Medicare tends to set the tone for where the private insurance system goes later, so more private insurers are playing hardball and going for package rates now.Sep 11 21:42
DaemonFC[m]There's been a lot of cases where they'll argue with hospital networks and threaten to make them out of network if they raise the bills beyond a certain point.Sep 11 21:43

DaemonFC[m]I'd rate SNES Doom as one of those "It's so bad, it's good." titles.Sep 11 22:37
DaemonFC[m]I mean, the thing shouldn't really even have existed. It's a console that was designed in 1989 to play sidescrolling platformers and stuff. Absolutely no thought went into 3d, so you have to clumsily play Star Fox and Doom with a D-Pad. The co-processor that even makes it all possible, was designed by a 23 year old and a teenager that Nintendo flew into Japan from the UK because they realized that they didn't build aSep 11 22:40
DaemonFC[m]very capable system. Then the guy who ported Doom had to make an entirely new game engine and realized that no toolchain existed for the co-processor and he had to write one of those too, and id Software didn't tell him anything about how WADs or the Doom engine worked.Sep 11 22:40
DaemonFC[m]Nintendo mostly did the co-processor because they realized that the base model Genesis was even beating them on some 2D effects, and they couldn't do Super Mario World 2 or Pilot Wings like they wanted to without another processor in the cartridge. Sep 11 22:41
DaemonFC[m]The 32X port of Doom to the Sega Genesis was much better, though it also was missing levels.Sep 11 22:41
DaemonFC[m]It rendered at about twice the resolution as the SNES with the SuperFX chip and the monsters didn't all sound like Imps, and the monsters weren't deaf, and there was infighting.Sep 11 22:42
*AVRS (~AVRS@wikimedia/AVRS) has left #techrights ("WeeChat 2.9")Sep 11 22:42
DaemonFC[m]I understand that the 32X port of Doom didn't even make use of all of what the 32X adapter could have done.Sep 11 22:43
DaemonFC[m]A 32X adapter with CD support built in and a new round of the Genesis console with the stuff included should have really happened instead of the Saturn.Sep 11 22:43
DaemonFC[m]I think things really started to go off the rails for Sega because of the Saturn.Sep 11 22:44
DaemonFC[m]They could have then turned their focus to the Dreamcast and gotten it out in 1998 or so when Sony an Microsoft were more than two years away from having anything similar. Sep 11 22:44
DaemonFC[m]Even in 1999, it was ahead of its time.Sep 11 22:45
DaemonFC[m]What killed it was a healthy dose of FUD from Microsoft and Sony.Sep 11 22:45
DaemonFC[m]The tragedy was that every single Dreamcast has a powered by Windows CE sticker on it because they have two operating systems. The native OS is not CE and is much more powerful.Sep 11 22:47
DaemonFC[m]But Sega didn't promote it and promoted a vastly inferior one and stuck Microsoft branding on their product too.Sep 11 22:47
DaemonFC[m]It was a company ran by idiots who had some good engineers who were constantly vetoed.Sep 11 22:47
DaemonFC[m]They really should have pressed forward with the Hitachi SuperH CPU (one thing they didn't screw up), one OS (Katana), the special 3dFX graphics adapter, Glide as the API for graphics, no Windows CE. Sep 11 22:48
DaemonFC[m]I think they should have gone full force promoting 3dFX and Glide. Sep 11 22:49
DaemonFC[m]Some of 3dFX's later chips were actually much faster than the stuff Nvidia had on the market, even if you used them with DirectX. Sep 11 22:49
DaemonFC[m]Unfortunately, they never released the full upmarket version of the Voodoo 6000 series. Sep 11 22:50
DaemonFC[m]Their creditors were going to force them into bankruptcy so they sold everything to Nvidia.Sep 11 22:50
DaemonFC[m]Glide was a much better API for gaming at the time. It was scaled down to remove a lot of bloat from OpenGL. Some of the damage done to OpenGL 1 was when Microsoft was on the OpenGL board.Sep 11 22:51
DaemonFC[m]They sabotaged it and then left. Sep 11 22:51
DaemonFC[m]So it has all of these rarely used extensions that Microsoft rammed through the standards-making process. This thing with the Linux Foundation and OSI is hardly the first time Microsoft has corrupted an open standard with money.Sep 11 22:52
DaemonFC[m]It's not even the fifth major assault on open standards, or the tenth. Sep 11 22:52
DaemonFC[m]The point was subvert OpenGL by adding in a bunch of extensions that hardware would have to support through the ARB process and then resign and market DirectX instead now that all these transistors were necessary to implement OpenGL fully in hardware. Sep 11 22:53
DaemonFC[m]Microsoft is absolutely terrified of Vulkan.Sep 11 22:54
DaemonFC[m]It wouldn't surprise me at all if they also started "contributing" to Mesa to add Direct3D 12 support to it as a state tracker. Sep 11 22:54
DaemonFC[m]Vulkan works on Windows, but Microsoft's FUD department's ammo against it is there's three vendor implementations and you don't know what it will actually do unless you test on three different hardware vendors products.Sep 11 22:56
DaemonFC[m]Nothing really new on that front from the OpenGL days, except that the Vulkan standard is better harmonized with a standard reference implementation.Sep 11 22:56
DaemonFC[m]I tried out the Source engine's Vulkan mode on my Skylake Iris 540 on Kubuntu 20.04 and was pleased to find out that it ran the games faster than OpenGL mode, even with higher detail and resolutions.Sep 11 22:57
DaemonFC[m]It seems that it's a lot easier to completely choke the CPU side of things with OpenGL and cause the frame rate to crash horribly. Sep 11 22:58
DaemonFC[m]In the later levels of Portal 2, there's a lot going on on the screen.Sep 11 22:59
DaemonFC[m]It has a lot of beams and portals (obviously), and scenery moving around, and depth of field effects. Sep 11 22:59

DaemonFC[m]Most of the Biden ads now that things are gearing up have been positive messages because it was determined that slamming Trump for his incompetence and failure didn't do much, but positive messaging did.Sep 11 23:04

DaemonFC[m]schestowitz__: When we did have an immigration lawyer, she told us that applying for a marriage visa to someone from Mexico or the Philippines is "almost always denied".Sep 11 23:14
DaemonFC[m]The State Department is trying to keep people from both countries out of the US and if they get in and you marry them, it's harder for the government to find an excuse to deport them.Sep 11 23:15
DaemonFC[m]They let Mandy in under a student visa because his sister thought she'd have someone scrubbing her toilets that she could use as a footrest.Sep 11 23:16
DaemonFC[m]She didn't tell him what the US was really like. Like, you know, how much this government hates immigrants, and she didn't ever plan to file for a sibling green card for him, and all that nice stuff.Sep 11 23:16
DaemonFC[m]She hated me from the beginning because I was an unexpected factor. Sep 11 23:16
DaemonFC[m]It's difficult for the government to deport even an undocumented immigrant if a citizen marries them and files an I-130 notifying Immigration of the family relationship.Sep 11 23:18
DaemonFC[m]They have a tougher hill to climb, because now instead of just some random immigrant, they're family of a US citizen. So, they go looking to pry into things.Sep 11 23:18
