Uhm, hey, hi.

Postby makesound » Sat Feb 06, 2021 6:35 am

A million years ago I used to post on the SEVEN DEADLY FORUMS under the handle "argyle." And I think I even logged into #finalfight a few times. So at least twenty plus one million years. I missed it, I guess. Welp, see you later!

Well I don't. I mean there might be one buried in backups somewhere.

I will check with the old vergers at the https://breadbros.com/ discord, they managed to get Shippu going sort of.

But really it'd probably be easier for me to write a HTML5 Canvas version if I can get the motivation.

Also update off Windows 7, I understand it's a pain (I was putting it off myself until, uh, earlier this week?) but it's dangerously old these days.

What is the next logical step from 7 though? Win 10 Ameliorated drew too much attention and got avakadavra'd and switching up to a whole new OS family is hard

That's been my problem too. For now I've got the excuse that this computer is very old, and that I will switch OSes when I replace it.

But I'm not relishing the thought of trying to force Windows 10 to obey me instead of MS, yet most major games I play are very much not Linux-friendly at all.

There's always dual-boot, I suppose, but that just seems like extra work to maintain two OSes while also not even using the nominally better one almost the entire time.

My solution's been Linux as my main plus one laptop running Win10 for the very few programs I need it for.

Steam's got a compatibility layer that I've found works quite well for the vast majority of Windows games I want to play (ProtonDB is a good resource for compatibility info on individual games).

For games that don't play nicely with Linux, a look at eBay suggests you can get a used PS4 for around $200. A Windows 10 Home license is $140.

YMMV. But the choices are "Windows 8.1 or later, with all the aggravation that entails," "some other modern OS that's not Windows, with all the aggravation that entails," and "an OS that is not secure."

Windows 7 has been EOL for over a year. I don't think it should even be a consideration.

My Windows 7 license key (which I bought back in 2014, when it turned out that Windows 8 was a dumpster fire) activated Windows 10 Home with no fuss or bother, didn't even have to harass Microsoft to re-activate it. My goal with that computer is primarily gaming so I decided to just resign myself to putting up with Win10's bullshit.

I've got it! Upgrade to something modern then spend 90% of the day running W7 inside an emulator.

I will never stop using Windows 7. I will die on this hill.

Everyone starts somewhere. You made your undisputed masterpiece after you had learned many lessons from the stuff you worked on before. Iterative design works. AND you included a really cool, surprising gimmick that got a lot of attention.

But then you fucked it up and didn't include any bosses.

THATS RIGHT I'M STILL DOING THE SHIPPU JOKE

he clasps the hand of his wife, his sons

"dad", sobs william. "I will always remember your amazing love and kindness"

"and I," says his wife, ripping off her mask to reveal a mountain lion, "am still fucking waiting on shippu2."
