After playing , and , most games look either silly, bland or repetitive, specially most RPGs with silly quest everywhere. Except Tetris, which is the # 1 mind bleacher after studying a bit.

is a nice libre racing game, pretty close to Collin McRae Rally 2, if it had buldings.

It will run on really old systems :D. You can support it easily by creating new tracks (xml), or with libre 3D objects.

As I said, with some countryside homes it would be 10/10.

Most PC games from 2002 to 2005 look horrible, such as Hitman 2 and most Unreal based games.
Doom 3 being, maybe, the worst example.
Older games such as Max Payne, Anachronox and the post F.E.A.R ones look many times better.

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

From optimizing game shaders, I've found that after running the optimizing tool, a lot of code is optimized and returns the exact same shader. Same exact file, sha256-checked.

Firefox admits they will eventually be sending all of your DNS to Cloudflare. Cloudflare will monetize your internet browsing, no matter how much their PR people say they are.

If you want to disable that, go to "about:config", and set "network.trr.mode" to 5.

The values are: 0 - default off, 1 - race, 2 TRR first, 3 TRR only, 4 shadow, 5 off by choice

Testing vertical scroll in #clopher #clojure

A lot of fun. Just random code... No dependencies (only JNA for one thingie).

I still wonder why I'm coding this... but I'm doing it.
Learning maybe?

INFGMB. You can play z-machine games up to the z3 version in the Game Boy. So, Infocom oldies and some 90's classics as Curses and maybe Jigsaw.
Zork works, of course.
It has both a readline-like history mode and word-highlighting and appending with "select" + "pad buttons".

I wonder if @SDF could set an Asterisk->Zork/Frotz gateway so you can play text adventures over IP and with speech recognition.

I never, ever thought could have an official repo based on , Interactive Fiction and an .
