I'm still waiting for Tales of Rebirth translation


The Japanese ones for the PS2 desperately need translations. Thankfully there are some good translation guides to make them playable, though last time I played Rebirth mine was missing some info on post-game content sadly. The guides out there are playable, but they're such good entries in the series that it's a damn shame we haven't had an official English release or a fanpatch, or even a subtitles only official release (to save money on voice acting).

Also it seems that some of the Tales of PS2 games crash when emulating them at random in cutscenes, so it's harder to showcase them when streaming unless you actually use the original hardware with a capture device that can stream live.

I almost always burn and play on the actual consoles, but anyway, if Rebirth translation comes out it'll be the PSP version first, while PS2 isn't certain at all, so it's PPSSPP compatibility that will matter.

Still, even for that PSP version we're probably talking about several more years...

As someone who has played through games way back in the day with printed off translation guides stapled together... It's a huge pain in the ass. Actual translations are such a more pleasant and natural experience.

I've been using Wacom drawing tablets since college and I really like how they feel and how responsive they are. I like them on a hardware level. But it is pretty fucking shocking how SHITTY their drivers are... It's beyond baffling, I have no words

I had no problems in the Win XP days but since using mine in Win 7 I had to constantly jump through hoops to get it working properly. I'd start a drawing and then realize that the pressure sensitivity was not working... (*sigh*). Then I would look online and see a SEA of comments on forums about people also having this problem.

So I'd have to try all combinations of the following tricks (and I mean ALL combinations. considering the number of parameters present here... that's a LOT of fucking combinations to try) : install earlier driver(tried several ones), restart PC but hold F8 at boot and enable "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement", run Services.exe and restart "Wacom service", run Tablet Setup utility AS ADMIN, run Tablet Preferences utility and erase said preferences, unplug and plug the tablet at different stages of the process...

And I'm writing in the conditional tense here but srew that, because I'm STILL having these issues in 2019. so it should be in the present tense, really. I have it working right now but I can say that getting this thing set up is pure Voodoo, there's no rhyme or reason to it you just gotta try stuff and pray... so damn frustrating(was legit pulling my hair here). I paid this $150 at the time, I don't want to buy a new tablet when I have a "functionning" one.

How good is hardware when drivers are as crummy as this -_-

Friends (well, acquaintances) who read superhero comics well in their '40s and take them seriously. They tend to come in the "white, anglo-saxon, bald, obese" variant. It is hard not to discriminate certain types of minorities when they cite "Spidey" as a moral compass and cultural inspiration.

So, fat people?

If you go into a public bathroom enough times you will some nasty stuff. One of the worst would have to be when a toilet is filled with shit and no toilet paper...

This janitor I used to work with had it the worst. I one time asked him what the nastiest thing he ever saw was in his career as a janitor. He thought for a second, then said someone miscarried in a toilet and all over the floor. Nothing will beat that.

No joke! I feel for the janitors at the library.

I was working at a video game store way back but they thankfully just didn't have a bathroom, I imagine it would be LGS like if there was one so whew.

Yeah one of my friends worked at a local game store for 10 years and has all sorts of stories.

One guy got banned. His nickname was the Poopetraitor. Everytime he would come in he would just blast everywhere all over the stall and not clean it up.

Another time someone clogged the toilet and they couldn't get it unclogged, so they had to get a plumber in. In the meantime they taped up the entire stall, but some Yugioh kid broke all the tape and crapped everywhere, including all over himself and had to have his mom pick him up.

Not poo related, but the store also had rules posted on the wall, one saying that "BO is a no-no", a rule they had to enforce a few times.

Good stuff.

Honestly, public toilets or toilets in places that people regularly pass by, they have a lot of problems even just beside the hygiene sometimes, i swear i have found cafes with bathrooms so small i barely fit in and had space to move.

More like anyone who sprays their evacuation all over the toilet bowl, regardless of weight. Sometimes I wonder if they fit special tips in their sphincter the way it's done with paint sprayers.

Whenever I relieve myself in a public space, I strip naked then crouch on the toilet seat like a perched gargoyle, open up the bomb bay door and imagine I'm a B-52 laying waste to a cambodian village.

Y'all wouldn't have to read these horror stories if my Bad Poops thread didn't get locked like 9 years ago (time flies, man). Never forget. Keep it flying.

Fucking Windows Update on Windows 10 AGAIN. I've moved to the semi-annual channel and delayed feature updates by 3 months, seeing as I'd never have one work through the standard Windows Update method - and they pulled one shortly after release. Being on Surface Pro, they roll out updates to that first - so I'd been delaying it to avoid getting a botched release pushed on me again.

Feature update 1903 came through yesterday and holy shit it worked first time through the standard Windows Update UI.

And then I noticed it took away my ability to delay feature updates or select a release channel. FU Microsoft. Again.

One of the things I never understood until I was an adult was why people would leave water or piss on the toilet seat. Like, what the hell, lift the seat up to take a leak or clean up after yourself! I now notice just how many times toilets, especially ones with aggressive flushing you'll see in industrial bathrooms, have splashing up when you flush the toilet. Often droplets will literally fly up out of the toilet when you flush, only to land on the toilet seat and make you assume the last person who used the toilet was gross.

The moral of the story is I am now in the habit of wiping the seat with toilet paper after I flush just to make sure I don't look like I've left it disgusting, even if it's just from flushing and walking away.

It's still obvious when someone pisses with the seat down though. Or misses the toilet/urinal completely. We had a lot of wet floors under the urinals that was blamed on blockages when flushing. They're still there now we have "waterless" urinals. Grim. I think they just upped the air freshener dose to cover it.

People are fucking animals. Not just men... I worked in a place where a woman did a shit on a cubicle floor. And to this day I don't know which former housemate regularly trimmed their pubes over the toilet seat and left them there.

Yeah when I worked at a Dairy Queen when I was 17 some old lady couldn't get into the bathroom and shit on the floor in front of the door.

Another person pooped in a fry box and left it on the table.

I currently work in maintenance. I have seen some nasty stuff. One of the more frustrating times was when a sign and cones were put up in front of the men's urinal and people kept flushing it and flooding the bathroom. One time, the men's urinal had a plastic bag over it and someone still peed on it. I have seen toilets covered in pee and poop in both the men's and ladies room. One time, there was a toilet covered in blood in when I was cleaning the ladies room (I suspect that it may have been fake due to the way it came off when I cleaned it). There was another day where the whole floor in one of the men's rooms was sticky.

When for some reason I can't answer a call from a customer, that's ONE CALL, then said customer calls the head office complaining he's been calling multiple times for an hour and no one answers. :roll:
Good thing calls are registered, then when my boss comes questioning what happened, and understands the situation, he just goes: "Oh, fuck them then. Fucking customers..." :lol:

I'm afraid I can beat everyone on this, I work in the NHS on a reception desk in outpatients. Once a couple of years ago, the patient toilet was blocked (with shit) and so we let the patients use the staff toilet (unisex so just a toilet no urinal). Towards the end of clinic I went for a quick pee, only to find the entire seat, floor and walls absolutely plastered in jizz, and I'm talking COVERED, the guy literally must have saved that orgasm for an entire year, to release it on the world at that moment, tantric style. luckily the floor and walls were a dark colour which tipped me off, I might not have noticed it on the seat and lifted it.

Quite why he felt the need to do it, I've absolutely no idea, all I know is, it took a special cleaning crew practically in radiation suites to sort it, and I've never been over keen on using that toilet since.

Doesn't compare to some of the bowel-loosened horrors on this page, but goddamn work internet censor chafes my ass. The PCE Quality Thread is blocked for PORNO, the Scrolling Action thread for VIOLENCE/WEAPONS, the MD thread for PERSONAL THREATS. I appreciate the sentiment Image but still - eat my ass, corporate overlords!
