some inexplicable series of system updates has made it so ashen in wine finally works right on my computer so i guess i'm gonna play that a bunch soonish

anyway i posted the new chakra contamination chapter
archiveofourown.org/works/1984
(it's very explicit pornography)

anyway chakra contamination chapter 6 is basically done and it's 12k wordsssss

now time to let it sit for a bit so i can edit it more before i post it

also god i love the temerity of being like 'warning p3d0philia, in3st, rap3' like oh okay people might have blocked certain words but this post is _really_ important so i'm gonna try to circumvent that, so people really definitely see my very important discourse post

i can't believe that the big problematic genshin impact incest ship is b/c the english localization changed 'blood brothers' to 'adopted brothers'

i love fandom, i love discourse

the `Maybe a` should actually probably be like, `Writer a ()` but since i never use writer monads i didn't really think of it. there's another thing in the event handler that's like the perfect case for using reader monads, just... who actually uses reader/writer monads.

so these are my event handlers now & the second constructor is this thing i've gotten into the habit of doing that i refer to as "quantified existential fun"

i mean i guess they're both quantified existential fun i just really enjoy the aspect of it where you can stuff paired producer & consumer types into a type constructor & as long as no trace of the types escapes directly then you can clap your hands and make them vanish. very useful for heterogenous stuff like, event handler state.

not pictured: everything being 8 pixels above where it ought to be; the geometry being shattered apart into two overlapping triangles for each character; nothing being rendered at all b/c i got the triangle order wrong so it's all back faces.

sometimes you get fancy nice-looking screenshots but most of the time you get this

that it's literally anything other than the clear color represents an enormous success

u no ur testing that opengl context when it looks like this

yeah after redoing things w/ some handmade quantified existential stuff i feel like that's a much easier handle on how to do event stuff. i might bring back yampa/dunai if i get this thing to the point of needing physics, since its timing+integration code could be interesting there, but just for menu stuff, yeah, i'm gonna just do something simpler

Show thread

like all the examples i can find for any kind of frp library are either 1. trivial or 2. designed to be compiled to javascript, and neither of those are really that useful

like tbh i still haven't found a good answer for "what's the idiomatic FRP way to open and close a menu" which kind of suggests to me that the whole thing is not a good idea to use for input handling

Show thread

man i still genuinely can't tell how you're supposed to use any of this FRP stuff sigh

i think in practice you wouldn't want to just blindly merge two event processors tho; you'd actually want to run one, see if it generated a response, and then only if it didn't run the other one. but still,

it is nice to be working in haskell again where i can do bullshit like this continuously

also FRP seems incredibly ill-suited to real-time programs-with-input ughh

maybe i'll just hack together something using reactivebanana since nothing else seems better + that's the library i know how to use mostly

Show thread

like if nothing else, using javascript you can be rendering some stuff on the screen immediately, but if you wanna render some stuff in haskell using some fancy rendering & frp stuff well hope you understand the totality of what yr trying to do and can write all that code before anything works

definitely frustrated w/ code right now. admittedly half of that is just like, yeah you gotta write a simple shader, and set up your gl context, and write some file-loading code and image-loading code&c&c

are there any good arrowized FRP libraries for haskell

i'm looking at yampa right now but it looks a little involved

the problem w/ doing javascript stuff is that i immediately want to do 3d stuff instead

i really gotta rig up a version of my haskell code that's actually like, robust to arbitrary rendering. just slice away all of the super complex labyrinths i make for myself so i can easily render some stuff

or i guess accept using webgl, but, probably not that
