Going to try and work a bit on the level editing stuff for my Rust game dev thingy. I hope I still remember how any of this code worked. twitch.tv/sirsamsai/

I allowed a friend to use C++ in modernising the code base of one of our game jam games. Now the templates go three levels deep, the entire game is evaluated at compile time and I can't understand any of it anymore. Help.

I'm going to play The Eternal Castle over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. See you in the chat!

Hey, I'm going to play some Linux games over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. Tonight's menu: "The Dark Mod" and "Veloren". We'll also continue preparing for a galactic disaster in Stellaris. See you in the chat!

My friend is moving the code base of our last year's Linux Game Jam entry to C++. I decided to try and build it and this is what the compiler threw back at me:

"../src/main.cpp:187:52: error: ‘pp’ is not captured"

I love the variable names my friend uses in their code.

I'm back from the cottage trip, so I'll be doing a bit of casual Caves of Qud over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. See you in the chat!

I wonder if it's possible to launch Steam in a way that doesn't make me want to rip my hair out as it fills the screen with a ton of windows I don't want and which respond poorly to my attempts to close them. Why would I suddenly want the massive friends view on start up? Why would I want your notification about how big picture mode is available? Why would I want ad banner on a game that I'm not the target audience for? I'll open those windows myself if I want to, Valve.

I feel like after all the time I've spent figuring out how to best cool a room with just a single fan, I should probably receive a degree in thermal engineering or something.

It's certainly quite hot. Outdoor temperature is about 31C now, hot enough that we escaped indoors. The lake water is warmer than a pool, but accessing it is made difficult by the fact that the deck and the stepping stones are scorching hot.

Probably won't stop me from going to the sauna later today though.

This is pretty hilarious. My network is too unstable for me to download Weechat via pacman. However, I don't actually need to do that because I have Emacs installed and it comes with an IRC client and who knows what else. And the connection is just stable enough that IRC does function.

What is pretty amazing is that the cottage has a wifi but I'm sleeping in the sauna building and my laptop reports 0% signal strength to wifi but stuff still works.

I'm at summer cottage until Sunday next week and the mobile network coverage here is a bit spotty, so no streams during that period of time. Good opportunity to test what websites work with a spotty, less than a megabit connection though.

Going to do a bit of coding for that CoQ character creation thing of mine over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/. Just going to probably fix some bugs today.

Welp, that was a pointless stream. Either the mod or gzdoom started behaving so unreliably that I had to manually start a new game for each level and cheat my weapons back. In the end I got so sick of it that I just godmoded the end boss because fuck it. Pitiful end to a mod that started so nicely.

We'll continue fighting demons in The Doom Tribute Project over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes.

Hi! I'm going to be playing some Linux games over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. Going to cover "Overland" and "Celeste", both of which I picked up in itch.io/b/520/bundle-for-racia. We'll also continue our Stellaris campaign of watchful pacifism. See you in the chat!

Holy damn, Pyre, my personal GOTY of 2017, is now part of the itch.io bundle for racial justice and equality! That alone would way more than justify spending $5, but it's all for a good cause too! itch.io/b/520/bundle-for-racia
