    Analogue Super Nt

    Just an FYI regarding playing original PAL/JPN games - You're probably better off using the Jailbreak Firmware with the CopySNES function, at least to initially back up old saves. I'm finding that my old cartridges can rattle in the expanded slot, and as a result I almost lost all my saves on my original Zelda cart! Thankfully, my last save slot in the game was intact, and it turned out my 12-year-old self decided it was a good idea to have the near-complete save on that particular one Two of the four surviving cartridges I have aren't detecting in my SNT, either - I'm using CopySNES as it actually detects the ROM header before dumping, and it doesn't want to on my Street Fighter 2 and Super Mario World cartridges at all. Can the cartridge contacts fail at all, outside of muck on them? I mean, it's not a big deal on these carts that are worth pence on ebay, it's just a bit galling that my own stuff doesn't work on it. When it does, though, it's fucking ace - everything's super crisp and vibrant, and it's super nice to get 60Hz out of PAL games (although I will say that PAL Mario Kart does have some wild graphical glitches when running at 60Hz).

    Destiny 2: Forsaken - Festival of the Lost

    Buy whatever's going for glimmer from Spider so you have a frequently high amount of any material for infusion. Keep around 30-50k for buying bounties from all the NPCs or for rainy day material purchases. After the campaign there's some pricier bounties, but you'll probably have 100k again by that point. Glimmer is abundant in post-forsaken Destiny, probably because it costs nothing to apply shaders!

    If it helps, I got my DHL e-mail at 2am this morning, so they're still going through orders it seems. That's just the console, as well.

    ... As it turns out, anyone can generate invites, including myself. Oops. https://discord.gg/XJDEqW As before, I don't think any of us can control the clan itself outside of @tnman, as we share our roster with the Xbox folk. At the very least, I can provide the clan page - requesting access should ping something to our fine friend. https://www.bungie.net/en/ClanV2?groupId=2113424

    @tnman should be able to fire you an invite and/or verify the join request on the bungie side of things. As for the discord, I should be able to ask @Karde to poke his royal nose in here while Oz is off. A lot of the clan are currently burnt out of the solstice event (or just didn't bother, like myself), so the discord had generally devolved into sending @Larsen B videos from Clickhole. I'm certain that will change as we go into next week, mind.

    Steam

    They've now released the beta version of Steam Play that involves this Vulkan-based implementation of WINE (which they are calling Proton). From their announcement thread: Windows games with no Linux version currently available can now be installed and run directly from the Linux Steam client, complete with native Steamworks and OpenVR support. DirectX 11 and 12 implementations are now based on Vulkan, resulting in improved game compatibility and reduced performance impact. Fullscreen support has been improved: fullscreen games will be seamlessly stretched to the desired display without interfering with the native monitor resolution or requiring the use of a virtual desktop. Improved game controller support: games will automatically recognize all controllers supported by Steam. Expect more out-of-the-box controller compatibility than even the original version of the game. Performance for multi-threaded games has been greatly improved compared to vanilla Wine. They've also released Proton on Github, as it's open-source like WINE. There's also a wishlist to vote for games you want looking into. Compatability is obviously scatty as there's 24,000 games on Steam according to Steamspy, with some titles not working when they do on Standard WINE, but there's plenty of success stories reported by users, so there's something there. More Vulkan mindshare for future development is always welcome!

    Spark of Light does come with a copy of Forsaken, thankfully. and unlike (?) D1, it skips the campaign allegedly. And you won't need Year 1 guns and armour because they'll all be garbage in five minutes of Forsaken's campaign!

    Challenge breaking mechanics

    Jury Rigging perk in Fallout: New Vegas. Aka. the art of repairing .50 Hand cannons using the shitty .22 handguns you get at the start of the game, and buying out entire shop inventories because of selling the newly repaired hand cannons. Between that and winning your money back playing Caravan, you basically stitched up the dude at the dinosaur shop for infinite ammo. And all his caps.
  11. The GDEmu clone that I ordered from AliExpress has come through the post. It seems as though it's the revised clone with the fixed oscillator, as the PCB is black as opposed to green. Probably have to wait until the weekend to give it a blast, as life is generally in the way - in the meantime, it's probably a good time to research into hooking it up via HDMI. It's gonna be one sick Sega Swirl session happening when I'm off work

    Destiny 2: Forsaken - Festival of the Lost

    You can find out in your Bungie profile - There's a specific page that you can log into, and normally a little hyperlink underneath that breaks down what you haven't done. Did all the redux missions with Moodmon - They're all well paced (with the exception of Payback, which felt like you'd be better off blowing up the tanks with Whisper/DARCI these days), offer a decent level of challenge, and offers a couple of surprises. Very good start to the event - And at least, unlike the faction rallies, you have a good month to chew through it.
  13. Today on Warframe: - Got a credits booster, ran Seimeni until my eyes bled and walked away with 800k - Pulled an Attica out of the oven, bolted a recently acquired Thunderbolt mod to it and now I'm Hank Scorpio - Found out all of my frames have space aids (warning: spoilers about The Sacrifice in that link), all but two (which are incubating) now have been stabbed in the neck because of it All before lunchtime! Now it's time to get Nova and Nyx out of the oven and BLOW MORE SHIT UP.
  14. You'll also want to have a look at the alerts menu and look at invasions, in case there's any that is currently winning and will reward you with Fieldron. If there are, run those missions three times to get the loot. Compared to making Fieldron from samples, it's miles easier AND cheaper. But you'll want to collect it. For reasons. Done The War Within this afternoon. Now I've basically gone around and picked up every side quest that gives you a frame at the end of it, so I can have a steady stream of new frames to play with until I get to Eris - currently waiting on the next steps for Limbo and Mirage.
  15. Definitely. I've now got Valkyr and Nova parts in the oven. Also jammed a bunch of secondary guns into the oven because I've ran out of things to master and forgot about it while enjoying the luxury of having a portable flamethrower. Oops. Also started dabbling in the invasion missions where you fight for a faction -seems to be a very good way to earn full-fat Fieldron for Lenz, and I've somehow walked away with being one neuropics away from Nyx, which is nice. Need to get back on the plastids hunt for Nezha, too. I might even get back to a story mission soon
