    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I've finished Gemini Rue many years ago and if I remember correctly I enjoyed it, the way the story is told is quite clever. I'm halfway into Shadow of Mordor. Say what you want about AAA games, but some of them are truly good. It takes the now common "open-world filled with quest markers and...

    The Communication Cube

    I remember reading litterature about that kind of video compression back in 2006. After checking it seems that H.264 allows to look back for 32 key frames, and if I remember correctly it also allows for dynamic keygrames. So a good multi-pass encoder should already be able to handle...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    Just finished No One Lives Forver. I think it's the 3rd time. It has its flaws but it's a fun and impressive game : from the streets of Morocco to a freefall from a destroyed plane, to underwater to a space station, to a train to an evil mastermind's lair (and so many other levels in between)...

    Release Ghostbusters and the Secret on Monkey Island : The Fan Game

    I notice that there's an AGS runtime 3.3 on the repo. Might be a good idea to update it with 3.5? While it's nice to have pre-packaged games it'd be also nice to have a runtime to run other games (I've just realized that Technobabylon is an AGS game and it would be nice if I could play it on the...

    Windows 10 ARM on Pyra?

    I'm surprised no one asked ptitSeb to port XP to Pandora yet.

    The Communication Cube

    Hans Rosling did some pretty great TED talks. However some recent studies tend to question his optimism regarding the end of poverty.

    Myst 25th Anniversary Collection

    There's always the risk you'll realize you only like it because it was the only video game you could play on your Mac. :p

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    I've tried KeeperFX (windows "port" of Dungeon Keeper) with the "windib" video driver and it's just like Fallout: it gets to the main menu but I can't move the mouse and it stays stuck there.

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    No luck with OpenGlide for Interstate 76. Fallout still stays stuck on the main menu. Planescape Torment fails to start (complains about being out of video memory I think) I got Gunpoint to start, it takes a very long time and then displays a screen that's bigger than the Pandora's. I don't...

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    @ptitSeb: Is there any special trick to get OpenGL running in wine? I've tried different LIBGL_FB settings (with or without LIBGL_ES=2) but found non that seem to work.

    World News Thread (Politics,whatever)

    Hopefully, profits from genuine goods will never subsidize criminal and/or terrorist activities. :oops:

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    Still not a lot of luck with the bundle's games. Lots of Unity games, quite a few 64-bits only games. There's a LOVE game that I might try to run with the LOVE binary from the picolove pnd... But all in all it's a lot of time to browse and download games just to realize that they're yet another...

    World News Thread (Politics,whatever)

    I've recently become very wary of the whole "you can't trust anything/anyone" approach. Skepticism is a useful tool in science, but at the end of the day you still have to trust (or at least assume) some things to be true if you want to do anything. It's fine that you might want to question the...

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    Tried a few other games of the bundle. There are many Unity games. I know some of them could run but I generally don't bother trying to get them working since I haven't been able to run any of the ones I've tried. There are a few XNA games where I think I'd better use mono directly. I've been...

    What are you playing this weekend/these days?

    I've finished Minit (main quest, looks like I've collected only half of the stuff). Played on my Pandora with Box86. It tends to slow down, especially in the late game, but it was bearable enough to let me finish. It's a zelda-like (think early zeldas) except that every 60 seconds you die and...
