When I was a kid, you could leave batteries in something for six months and not find them completely dead. The opsession with making everything digital, including power buttons, has resulted in everything drawing phantom current, even when the thing is supposed to be off. Compare this to a mechanical flashlight, or old-school Gameboy, and you can understand what I mean.
GameDevGoroAnalog mechanics rule. Digital stuff is ok. Always-on digital sttuff is crap. IOT smart devices is the devil and should burn in a pit of molten tungsten.

AtomicaCurrent IoT gear is crap because the manufacturer's don't care about security and robustness. Recently there was a story of some smart locks getting bricked because the vendor pushed a firmware update for a particular model onto the wrong model of lock. The locks didn't even have the ability to detect that the firmware wasn't going to work, they just accepted whatever firmware came their way. Such a lack of foresight.

GameDevGoroYeah, aside from issues like botnets and unlawful surveillance and other gaping security holes. My mind wanders to issues with cheap stuff that's designed to be replaced in quick succession with newer products. Electronic waste from things that had no business having it, like toothbrushes and underwear! :D Some smart devices are just no-exception useless and fall under the category of a party gift or something. And inevitably gets tossed in the bin right quick. :P

Hey, grayman! Are those re-releases of WS 1-3 still on the way? :)
graymanThey won't be available for a while. I'm working on WS 4, 5, and 8 atm.

Could somebody take a look at tdm-downloadmirror yourvserver.net? its down, and the updater chooses this mirror always first. But If you wait some seconds, the updater chooses another mirror. But the updater stucks at updating and this is very annoying.
AluminumHasteI had this last night also.

Has anybody had much luck not having random graphical glitches occur while using, mirrorRenderMap? Besides referencing the player position it just doesn't like to actually reference surrounding scenes correctly.
Updated all TDM'S installation instructions on our wiki

AluminumHasteNice work! Very appreciated.

This music would be *so* perfect for TDM. It just screams TDM-ish atmosphere. https://youtu.be/Ig9LE0Vp1YM?t=962 (starts at 16.02) Too bad we don't know who made it!
kanoImagine sneaking around and listening to that!

Nice shot, no cigar.
Got a Ryzen 1700 today. Damn, is the box big! I was used to the older CPUs like Phenom II that came in pretty small boxes. This is actually a lower power consumption part, but I hear that they threw in a nice (larger than necessary) cooler, so that must be why.
stgatilovGood luck getting it to work! =) Especially if you are going to use high-speed RAM...

Bikerdude@Kano, nice. Your multi-core perf will be monster, but single thread not so much. What CPU did you upgrade from..?
@stgatilov, motherboard bios's are mature enough now to alleviate this issue for the most part.
Jul 30 2017 07:17 AM
kanoIt is an upgrade from Phenom II 1100t.

teh_saccadenever heard of gamesesssions - like a "full demo" steam account, rather than <2 hours play and a refund if it's pap.
I'm sticking with the seven seas of internet for most stuff:)
Thanks for the link - useful service.

teh_saccadeshame the catalogue is so limited...
Jul 08 2017 01:10 PM
teh_saccadeStill not got it loaded - however there's a seven seas version that works perfectly and have been playing while it installs "for free" :P
Idk about that service mate. Deinstalling it.

Google Blocks 3D Modelers: https://www.blog.google/products/google-vr/blocks-easily-create-3d-objects-vr/
jaxaWouldn't a snap to grid option take care of some of the shakiness inherent in VR control?
And it could be pretty precise if your hand movements are recorded... pretty precisely.

Sotha...And I read it initially that "Google blocks (as in "bans") 3D modelers," and thought what the hell, and then got curious how will they do that. XD
