  1. Ah ok, sorry. I just based my assumption on that article you cited, which explicitly named Poland as one of the contries whose keys were geo-blocked. Didn't mean to be offensive or anything.
  2. I wonder how that will affect video game pricing here in europe, as they will have to equalize prizes accross the Europe. Considering how Germany yields the highest video game revenues in Europe, I don't expect they will lower the prices here much. Consequently, they will probably raise the prizes in eastern Europe quite a bit. So, sorry peter, I guess you'll have to pay more in the future.
  3. I have just tested it. It's really cool. All my games from GOG, Bethesda Launcher, Origin, Epic, Uplay, Battle.net and Steam under one hood. The only feature I am missing right now is "sort by date of purchase" because I usually want my most recent purchases at the top.
  4. We probably need @cabalistic here.
  5. As the title says! I am just curious. The answer doesn't necessarily have to be your all-time favorite game, because I would argue that some games even get better after the first playthrough. Obviously, all answers without major spoilers, please. So for me, it would be the Outer Wilds and the Splinter Cell Series. Outer Wilds, because it is an unbelievable intense experience to explore the physically simulated cold outer space and unravel the secret about that innovative 22-minute supernova timeloop that leads to some very interesting gameplay ideas. Sadly, it will never be the same
  6. There are no third world contries inside the EU and EU-rules only apply to EU-members, i.e., when you sell a product in EU-contries, so your whole argument is moot. That being said, yes, not everything the EU does is fantastic, but there are tons of really good things that the EU made happen and the British government are utter dumbasses for their Brexit and many many Brits and other Europeans will now suffer the consequences. But wow, the next topic derailed into a political discussion. Maybe we should start enforcing stricter on-topic rules.
  7. Using the fragment shader to render a fake sphere on flat surface. https://bgolus.medium.com/rendering-a-sphere-on-a-quad-13c92025570c
  8. I would even go so far to say that it's actually annoying due to those frequent unwanted viewport animations.
  9. It was not meant as trolling. Just wanted to point out in a funny way that there are tons of games exclusively being published on Steam and the same goes for Battlenet. This used to be true for Uplay and origin as well, but both can now be accessed through Steam as well. Admittedly, most exclusive Steam games are from indie devs that likely couldn't find a better publisher, but there are also AAA-titles, like Alyx or Left 4 Dead for instance. The only difference here is really that Epic pushed comparatively aggressively for exclusiveness in a time where people are used to buying almost ev
  10. I get that argument. So, consequently, you obviously are also not buying those tons of games released on PC only, exclusively via Steam, right?
  11. Oh really???? That's amazing, thanks! Gonna have to check that out!!
  12. All that hatred towards epic launcher, I don't get it. You get good sales there too and they frequently give you a 10€ coupon as well. What's bad about giving Steam some competition and paying devs more money while doing so? Then, there is also the fact that they give away games for free. Back when Steam was released, everybody was like "nooooo I don't want it, I don't want some company tracking all my games". Nowadays, nobody wants anything else than Steam. How times have changed... The only downside I see is that I never know under which service I own a specific game I want to pla
  13. Yeah, and there is also that mostly rectangular level design, which just doesn't look very natural in a medieval context. We are not designing modern north american cities here afterall. Obviously, those rectangular designs are due to the usage of brushwork instead of models and I actually don't mind it at all, but it does reduce realism.
  14. A more descriptive term for pupil detection is probably pupil localization: You have a calibrated camera setup and try to locate the pupils in 3d space with that. This task can usually be performed fairly accurately. Eye-tracking on the other hand usually refers to detecting what you are looking at, so you can control the mouse with your gaze for example. Pupil detection is actually one of the required steps in optical eye tracking. After the pupil center has been detected, the eye ball center also has to be estimated. Then, a ray is shot from the eye ball center through the pupil center
  15. That nostalgia hits hard!!
