FOV sliders are a sin. How can someone look at what's supposed to be a 90-degree angle and not get a dissonance from it not looking right? How can people move and turn rapidly in fish-eye mode without getting dizzy? Excuses about it allowing you to "see more" are just nonsense. Worst of all, they now put this crap into retro-style FPSes and new ports of old ones. If I could put dislikes on Twitch streams that mess with it I certainly would 'cause I've seen way too many of those already.

You can outright see more with high FOV, and I've heard of people considering crazy stuff like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQOJ3yCK8pI, but one major use for FOV adjustment is to compensate for the actual field of view you should be seeing based on your position and monitor size.

I needed to slightly increase field of view on Doom Eternal (amongst other settings) to alleviate motion sickness.

But yeah, individual choice for people really sucks.

I understand needing adjustments depending on setup, but I've seen people playing with FOV that would only make sense for VR. Whatever the case, you still gotta take into account how viewers will see it when you're streaming. And looking at some streams like that makes me physically ill within seconds.

EDIT: On a different note, Firefox updated their address bar... by making its functionality straight up WORSE. What's with the big internet corps and shooting-themselves-in-the-foot style "improvements"...

Oh man. I dropped Firefox years ago. It has been in a constant race to make things worse.
I only use it on my phone because it supports addons.

On an unrelated note, I saw a phishing message in my inbox this evening with an ancient password of mine.
Was kinda worried for a second until I started thinking of what services I used that password on [nothing I've cared about in the last 10 years]. :lol:
Googling the old password brought up a list of passwords on an ftp site [no usernames or anything like that], so it was clearly leaked in some breach or another.

really would have been pretty bad ten years ago though, I'd have been in a mad scramble to change everything

Oh yeah. Was almost certainly like the LinkedIn leak that did me in there.
Kinda surprised I didn't see that account vandalized or something, lol.

Yeah i just saw the same thing and I guess mine was threatening to "expose my life to everyone and make my life miserable" lol! I've already had a discussion about this with work and we'll turn over anything we get to the authorities if the dipshit tries to follow thru on any threats.

Old passwords are good for probably a year or two, then you should update. Still this is dumb that you'd expect site owners to button up security enough not to take a breach or two.

Hm, turns out I was PWNED a while back, SEVERAL TIMES :shock: So I had a look in me spam hoping for a similarly extortive threat, perhaps to expose my shameful youth downloading Castlevania OSTs. Little did I know FORTUNE AWAITED ME Image

Spoiler: show
OH MY GOD.

As you read this, I don't want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is Mullin Yato Evans a merchant in China and Dubai.I have been diagnosed with COVID-19.It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few weeks to live, according to medical experts. I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my businesses.

Though I am very rich, I was never generous,I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for.

But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life in a different way from how I have lived it.

Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as a few close friends. I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so,I have decided to give also to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria, Malaysia and some countries in Africa. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.

I had recently asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves. Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contented with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of Two Hundred and Eleven Million United States Dollars $211,000,000,00 that I have with a Financial Holding Firm abroad.

I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. I have set aside 10% for you, your time and also any expenses incured during this assignment. God be with you.

Kindly reply me on my confidential email account : ramit_inma_ashol@gmail.com

God bless you greatly as you do.

Regards,
Mullin Yato Evans


THE STORY CONTINUES

"Defiled all forms of medical treatment" I'm stealing that Image

A very little annoyance: SUPER SCAWY HORROR MODS that blag Silent Hill music and SFX wholesale. JOB DONE MIRITE. This would've been a very cool scene, if it didn't sound like a promotional CD for Konami's latest whoring out of a long-pillaged IP. Would I still have said "OMFG, that be very SH1-esque" yes, but that's fine! Toyama & co stole from the very best for their classic pastiche, and good pastiche is no bad thing.

It's not hard FFS. Get a brillo pad, a dimestore mic and some stock animal SFX, boot up Audacity, then get blackout hammered on your intoxicant of choice and cunt it all up in the Effects menu. Easy!

A quick bite:

Spammer: "I have your password. I took control of your cam, and recorded what you have done...while visiting those sites".

Me: "Oh, good. Anyway I uploaded...it on Sexagainstnature.com, section "Too sick 2 exist". I am always sure that I make my kinks known to the connoiseurs!".

I admit that my rants on various games have been put on hold. I promise that I will spam the relevant topics in due time.

Funny thing with these threatening e-mails, they always end up in your spam folder. So if they did have any videos of you, sending those out to your employer or friends would also end up in their spam folders.

Speaking of spammy COVID emails, I've been getting a lot of poorly written ones from "paypal" lately. "Dear sir due to COVID-19 the paypal family need you sign in when now. CLICK LINK TO SIGN IN".

I think I'm up to three right now. Bring on some more!

I fear the thread has gotten too nice, Burinju. Image This is Little Annoyed Hell, a garbage incinerator of long-held repute! You should be exhorting drauch-sama to hire some mercs and seek out the Prince of Nigeria and his fathomless riches, so he can DDT that scamming fucker onto a steel chair before making off with the cash! Image

A Wakaliwood dramatisation:

Spoiler: show
Image


Stardate: My Big Frickin Dong. Fatty McFatFat Carl of Swindon (self-dubbed "Sargon of Akkad") little annoys me. He can speak articulately on issues his government cowers away from, like England's infamous child rape gangs (obfuscated by the press as "Asian" or "Muslim" with no regard for said demographics, despite being consistently traceable to rural corners of Pakistan - like calling Yardie gangsters "West Indians"). He's also an arrogant buffoon who jovially mooted raping a female rival while running for office, weathering the public's revulsion with the grace of a man shitting violently after just a wee dram of polonium. This nous then saw him pick a nonsensical fight with beloved internet roadrunner Jimmy "IRA in USA" Metokur, who obligingly savaged Carlton's anus and integrity alike, the portly coyote fruitlessly pulling every trick in his much-decried SJW Playbook™.

Good job, Carl. The public think you're irredeemable scum. A chunk of your erstwhile online base considers you a faithless cunt. And children forsaken by their country, who could benefit from your work, may instead be even more SOL with your antics attached to their plight. This must be high-level strategy, just like Daddy Trump.

On balance, the effect is like the village idiot having the only flashlight during a blackout caused by willfully incompetent public works. I am a detached observer of all this, at most, but pathos tends to sneak up on me, like when I see a not-untalented speaker, willing to discuss politically unpalatable issues, afflicted by an uncontrollable urge to publically shit his pants.

The motorcycle segment and Afterburner/Space Harrier segments in Bayonetta are truly awful. Not only do have to button mash to fire at high speeds all throughout them, but the camera is awful in them. An embarrassment to Sega, who having made Outrun 2/2SP should know better how to position a camera in a racing game.

The motorcycle segment has the camera positioned behind the rather tall Bayonetta, in such a way that it's actually hard to see what's directly in front of you, instead of moving the camera up a bit to avoid this issue.

The Afterburner/Space Harrier style segment is even worse. The player ship is absolutely gargantuan in size making it basically impossible to accurately see anything directly in front. You pretty much have to get a "feel" for the stage, and if you dodge the entire screen rotates suddenly. It's not the end of the world for me but it will absolutely mess up anyone prone to motion sickness (thankfully with good mashing or a rapid fire controller, you don't really need to use the dodge).

I absolutely love the flavor of the schadenfreude.

Android is a terrible and bloated mess, isn't it?

It's also the 24/7 spy you never ever asked for. Want to turn that off? You'll have to cripple the OS in the process.

Open source with optional blobs, you say? lmao! (You're kidding, right?) The tradeoffs make the OS practically unusable. You'd be better off just building directly on top of Linux.

Want patches and updates? Buy a new device! :)

Project Treble is pure lip service and vaporware.

Although, Android never was great mobile OS when it was simple. Like the Hiptop platform before it, it arrived full of memory leaks that crashed an "always on" device once every 10-14 days. It also trapped devs behind a silly fork of Java. That wasn't good enough to release in the first place.

I wasted several hours trying to figure out why DOSBox kept stuttering. Nothing had changed configuration-wise... but it seems like some combination of a new monitor/video drivers caused DOSBox to be extremely unstable and experience constant hiccups in games if cycles=max (i.e. run as fast as possible). Was having an odd issue where the videos between stages in SideLine would grind to a halt after a few seconds.

Turns out just making sure DOSBox only runs at a fixed set of cycles is the way to go now (36000 seems good for SideLine, too fast and it stutters).
