    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    Maybe you should consider keeping some of the social program funding so that you could have some for yourselves, then? It shouldn't be too hard with all those Marxists you've got secretly controlling your state...

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    I was able to run pico-8 with box86. I just tried the demos and they ran pretty smoothly, but I didn't have the opportunity to test more complex carts.

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    It doesn't prevent many countries, including countries with far less means than the US, to have some form of healthcare that is far better than what they have in the US... First of all, it looks like the risk of contamination is much lower outdoors than indoors. Second, people still do things...

    Release Undertale Launcher

    Yes it did so when I tried running it with a box86 I compiled (that's how I realized this was the problem), but the Undertale Launcher doesn't display any error message (even in the console when started with pnd_run)

    Release Undertale Launcher

    I've started playing this morning. So far, it's been working flawlessly at what seems to be full-speed. It's fully reactive, it feels like it's native. Thanks a lot @ptitSeb ! By the way, I used the Steam version of the game, I had to chmod +x the runner otherwise the launcher just didn't do...

    Does the Pyra have something similar to IME (Intel Management Engine)?

    And each and every actor that will handle the CPU between the manufacturer and you. And you need to do this for every other component of your device.

    Release DBGL + DosBox with 3Dfx

    I tried it last weekend with a recent build of box86 with dynarec and it was better than it was without dynarec, but it was still too slow. And after watching a video of how the 486 version is supposed to run it turns out that it is too slow as well with Dosbox...

    The problem with freedom of speech is once again that someone's freedom of speech shouldn't get in the way of someone else's freedom to live. In France, we've got some shitty people who spread a shitty "theory" (something totally unfounded and that can be unquestionably proven to be wrong)...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    I agree with Phlyra about the problematic tone of some messages. There are some broad accusations towards large populations that are dangerously close to hate speech. Not only does it create an atmosphere where some people wouldn't feel welcome here, but it also perpetuates concepts and thoughts...

    Covid-19 (Coronavirus) - Please stay safe, y'all

    Poor people actually have some power. The pandemic has proven it recently: the "essential workers" were mostly poor workers. If they stop working, society stops functioning and the rich can't get richer (and can't even use their money anymore). That's why general strikes are effective. But...

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    This week-end I've built an udpated box86 with dynarec (following the instructions from the compile.md) but I've been less successful than I expected to run stuff. I've re-tried Retro City Rampage, it's better than it was last time I tried (without dynarec) but it's still too slow to be...

    Freedom, in a society, isn't a simple on/off switch. Freedom is a trade-off, as the saying goes "your freedom ends where mine begins". My right to have a loud party infriges on your right to sleep. To live in society, you need to balance the rights: we can decide to ban parties, to consider...

    PiBoy DMG - Finally a well-built, affordable RPi4 handheld

    It's still there. Phones now keep apps open and only kill them when they need to reclaim resources. So your app can be killed at any time and you need to handle any state saving/restore (if you want to).

    World News Thread (Politics,whatever)

    Yes, except that with our broken economic system if we do that people don't get paid. And while this crisis could have been an opportunity to start transitioning away from that wasteful and dangerous model, it doesn't look like any major power is considering it.

    World News Thread (Politics,whatever)

    It's part of a 750 billion package for the whole Europe. Since Italy is one of the countries that has been most impacted by the COVID (and still is with the impact on tourism) it's good that they get enough to help their economy. I think that selling the gold would make their (considerable) debt...
