@Nezchan It's hilarious that they are worried by UN of all things. The organization that in most cases can't pass resolutions unless some country is boycotting them.

Kruggsmash is really good at telling stories with Dwarf Fortress. The Long Night mod he played also seems pretty cool: youtube.com/watch?v=9Tj_JUvLBd

I'm just going to pick a basic free demo + pay-to-play monetization because I don't even want to entertain the other models. I'll design this imaginary game for mobile gamers like myself who don't play mobile games because they have stupid monetization. That's my target market and the hill I'll die on.

I definitely couldn't make it as a mainstream mobile developer because I haven't had the part of my brain that deals with ethics and morals lobotomized.

So, this software product management course I'm taking wants us to run an imaginary development process for an imaginary mobile game and one of the first tasks is to decide the monetization model. This was given as a hint: anoda.mobi/8-app-monetization-

It gives you 8 monetization models and not one of them is "sell the god-damn product", but is instead some variation of preying on the user's psyche and taking control away from them. Cool cool cool.

Going to work on some stuff for my game dev project over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ Might try to hunt down some SFX and plug them in.

@m_svo It was really dry when I reapplied new paste. On my friend's GPU it was even worse and most of the paste had just flaked off. In both our cases the reported thermals went down by like 5-10 degrees, so that could be the difference between overheating or not.

It would also kind of explain why I had less issues running the GPU on an open-air test bench: it was just exposed to more cool air.

The RX580 plot thickens: my friend managed to have the same stability issues I did and he noticed his GPU clocks were bouncing up and down before the crashes. So he applied new thermal paste and cleaned his heatsink and that made his GPU stable. I did the same and mine stabilized as well. These GPUs never reported overheating, but it seems like the issue is somehow related to thermals anyway. Maybe our GPUs report incorrect thermals or something like that?

Since yesterday's stream died to technical difficulties, I'm going to play the two games I was planning to play on tonight's stream. So we'll have a look at "Ziggurat 2" and "Burning Knight" over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. See you in the chat!

Okay, I think either the RX580 is broken or there's some kind of a Mesa/kernel issue specific to it. I've managed to get it to die pretty much consistently on Unigine Superposition and my friends running 480s aren't seeing the issue. I'm going to be stuck on my R7 370 until I can at least track down if it's a hardware issue or not.

The husk of my old 2500k system has been resurrected to test if my RX580 is borked.

First time starting a PC with a screwdriver. I feel like such a hacker right about now.

Stream's off due to debugging. My GPU seems to hang with some games due to unknown issues and I kinda need to figure out why.

Hello! I'm going to be playing some Linux games over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. Tonight's menu: "Ziggurat 2" and "Burning Knight" (today with sound effects!). Since Black Mesa decided to not want to be played, I've decided to start a playthrough of Underhero. See you in the chat!

Samsai boosted

Yay, Swedish course results came back and apparently my Swedish skills are "satisfactory" which is all I need. Now I just need the course to be marked as passed and I should have all the student credits I need to get my BSc in computer science.

Going to try and solve a couple of miscellaneous issues and maybe implement some new small things in my game dev project over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/. See you in the chat!

Tonight I'm going on a bit of a nostalgia trip over at twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. There's a game I haven't touched in years, but it's also a game that started my content creation hobby, so I think it's due for a revisit. See you in the chat!

Update: the trouble child confessed because it's tough to argue innocence when you've got your fist all taped up after a window has been broken. It takes a mega moron to first break a window for no reason but also to do that with your bare first.
