    JournalOfStuff

    What a great name.

    This will primarily be used as some sort of half-assed record for what I remember from my nights out, or updates on trivial game-related shit. Yeah, nothing particularly personal will be found here.

    As of now though, I don't really have much to say except:

    http://openra.res0l.net/

    Get this so we can play some games. And test my mod for it.

And it spoke in a tortured parody of human speech: 'relp me, Raggy,' it would say. 'I am an abomination and rould re rilled. Rill re, Raggy.'"

    Well I'll be damned—I didn't think you'd make a thread. XD I look forward to future entries, and yeah, I will get round to checking OpenRA out myself. I do hope I'll be opening the actual gaming club again one day, but do remember you can try and create an event for playing it on the Steam group. (Even if OpenRA isn't a Steam game.) Not that anyone will actually show up if past gaming attempts are anything to go by.

    RE: JournalOfStuff

    Well so many weird and retarded things happen on my nights out that I felt like sharing some of the less obscene* ones... Not that I can really remember any in particular at the moment. I guess this thread will also be my place for ranting about whatever puts me in a shitty mood or just generally irks me.

    So that'd be 95% of the universe then.

    *By obscene in this context, I mean 'sweary'. I'm not the sort to suddenly agree to randomly start humping a complete stranger in public, especially if I'm pissed-up and hungry. Not that I'd share details of that anyway.

    RE: JournalOfStuff

    Well, you're about the last person I expected to have a topic here!

    Looking forward to future entries. This has the potential to be the most entertaining journal here.

    RE: JournalOfStuff

    After posting nothing, I figured I needed an excuse to moan about something. Anything, in fact. I'm obviously not out anywhere this weekend (I'm out on Monday though, of all days), so I've got little to start working myself into a rage over...

    ...so the arcade will do nicely.

    Now, I have to clarify; I like the addition of the arcade a hell of a lot, and the quality of the games is by no means a reflection on the admin of this site (far from it; we have in fact discussed a few of the bugs and crappy faults within the featured games), but seeing as I'm sitting here with an army of empty beer cans in front of me and can't be bothered to record any gameplay right now (my so-called 'subscribers' don't seem to be worth it at the moment), I'm going to crank the 'Age Dial' forward by about 50 years and pretend I'm one of the many geriatrics roaming the country in their mid-70's and still playing Spectrum ZX81 games.

    (Oh shit, they'd still have been older than me back then.)

    Or at least I will turn into an O.A.P. after screaming some very 20-something language at my fat retarded neighbour...

    ...right, so where was I? Oh yeah, the arcade.

    I'll start on the pinball game.

    Sometimes, the ball & flipper will hatch some sort of conspiracy against the player (alexjones.gif), leaving me with a very confused and agitated look on my face. I know that's not particularly far from my usual expression after several beers, but the inexplicable turn of events left me feeling somewhat miffed, especially when it all seemed to be going so well. Oh, and the 'dead zone' space seems to have some sort of gravitational pull. Still, I very much doubt the makers of a cerbonated soft-drink looked into the mechanics and design of any real pinball tables, so when it comes to one that's designed and built with Flash then it's not really much to get worked up about.

    Alright, so it is, but nobody gives a shit.

    Erm, that'll do for now. There's definitely something up with that Duck Hunt game, and I don't mean the bastard dog. But that's another story for later. Probably about 15 minutes from now.

    RE: JournalOfStuff

    Some facts for the day.

    • Nearly 40% of the internet consists of porn
    • Nearly 99% of Flash games are shit
    • The Flash version of Duck Hunt in the arcade is unfair
    • And the other games too

    The 7up Pinball game was one of the first games I installed about half a year back, but for some reason I decided to postpone the whole arcade system, probably until I could integrate wong with it which was a recent development. I deleted most of the crappy games but I decided to keep 7up Pinball for some reason. It's pretty crappy to say the least. I'll get something better on eventually. My main problem is with Duck Hunt. Jetpac isn't so bad because from what I gather the Spectrum version is similar. With Duck Hunt, I often face:

    • Shots missing despite actually hitting a duck
    • Shots hitting even though the crosshair is seemingly a little away from a duck
    • Shots not even firing at all—I click and nothing happens, and by the time I click again it's too late... and yes, this isn't an exclusive problem to my computer since it happened on my laptop too
    • Rage

    Anyway, good luck with it. I hope others make use of it since I'd like to see more challengers, and that might eventually (in the distant future) allow me to use the tournament system that is currently disabled. Expect Donkey Kong next weekend. Hopefully.

    RE: JournalOfStuff

    Duck Hunt.

    I really want to type in an obscene title for that, but it won't show.

    Anyway, yes. The gun doesn't always fire. The ducks often cheat in numerous ways. Shots seem to be nothing but blanks for half a round...

    'Rage' is putting it nicely. I would put in the usual string of expletives that I shout when it spits feathers and glitches at me, but the whole forum would turn a similar shade of blue to the default background.

    Hopefully Donkey Kong will only be rolling barrels at me, and not barrels of shit.

    RE: JournalOfStuff

    ...I didn't even know about the arcade =O

    And it has De-Animator! I've played that one, and I actually like it. If you'll excuse me, I need to try to top Mantis's record.

    EDIT: Done.

    EDIT 2: Well, I held that record for all of 10 minutes.

    RE: JournalOfStuff

    I'm pissing around with a sprite sequence for C&C, in order to create a new tank.

    It never feels like you're making progress.




    This is one of the most fiddly & infuriating tasks undertaken by anyone, ever. And what you see there is only half of it.

    What are you running, Windows 98? Looks pretty good though. Yeah, I know all about tedious tasks not feeling as if they make a difference, but keep it up and post the final thing when it's done.
