  • Out of curiosity... What sprite editing program does everyone prefer? I just started using aesprite...

    I'm so used to Photoshop that I never considered "the right tool for the right job". Looks like I should do some hands-on research :]

    @andwhyisit ... That takes me back lol

    There is one feature I'd really like to see in future art programs in general... Rewinding.

    I love undo. But, I really hate that it eliminates the entire previous action. If I could rewind to exactly where things went wrong... That would be FANtastic!

    Rewinding would be a very heavy hit on the RAM, so it isn't very feasible.

    But yeah, it'd be really helpful! ^o^
    I want virtual reality so bad... but I don't know why... I guess I haven't lived until I've played Cave Story in 3D VR at 90+ Hz in 2d

    I don't think VR will be really worth buying until untethered and inexpensive sets are released (which is why I'm anticipating the Vive, but given all that it has, it'll probably be pretty expensive). I played MC with an Oculus - nothing to die for IMO. Hopefully the Vive will be really nice though.

    minecraft? You tried a dev model of the oculus? Or was it the prototype consumer version?? I hope it's really life-like and sharp by release. As for cables Vive is supposed to be free roaming. That HAS to have wireless! Oculus maybe not? Price, shouldn't be bad. But, then you need a high performance video card, and a PC and now the refrig is empty .... I just want to play a cool game called Sword Art Online..

    dev kit, it was back in may; and if you wanted real SAO, then you would just lay in bed and have it hooked up to your nerves
    Did a bit of modding this week. Wish I was better at it >< Art, music, mapping, sound effects, story, dialogue, technical edits, GRAH!
    Visited the real world and had my first job shadow experience with a large medical corporation for Information Technology... intense!
    Anyone dare to upgrade to Windows 10 when it comes out this week? I'm going to do it...

    I guess I'm going to wait for the official notification to appear. It should tell me which programs I have to reinstall, instead of just failing or forcing other workarounds. Guess I should have prepared a clean install of Win 8.1...

    Funny thing is, I've been using Win 7 Home for years and had a 8 pro disc gathering dust just as long. I finally installed 8.1 pro to get the 10 pro upgrade, and I'm really liking Win 8! Convinced me to install EVERYTHING on this machine to see if it would work. And to my surprise, everything works. Wonder if Windows 10 will be so simple...

    It is <img src='http://www.cavestory.org/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/smile2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I'm getting closer to the perfect desktop workflow... I can issue commands, or use mouse and keyboard. I just wish I could just hover my hand off the keyboard, point at the window I want to move, grab/pick up and swipe move it wherever my hand is gesturing to. (Like to the other monitor.)
    Actually they do have that one thing...
    <a href='https://www.leapmotion.com/' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>https://www.leapmotion.com/</a>
    It might be able to do that! I read there was a leap motion keyboard too... That could be pretty neat if it works like I imagine.

    Also, I kinda wish my old steering wheel and pedals could hook up to USB... It's an old serial interface or something. It would be nice to have my feet controlling functions too <img src='http://www.cavestory.org/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/tongue2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':p' /> (Maybe shift/control? or better yet, a function button which changes what the buttons do when holding down the breaks or acceleration.) Actually might be able to get a converter...!

    And then in the future I can just LOOK at what I want to move and say "Move Window" (Turns head) "Ok" lol
    Hmm... actually:

    I guess they have something like that already! Though, it doesn't seem to say anything about using it as a mouse. I want to be able send the mouse across different monitors, so I can work with multiple applications with just looking and some kind of way to confirm I want some action to take place at where I'm looking.

    Glance over at my second monitor, look at an area, say a word that's in that highlighted vision zone, and it selects automatically or say "mouse" and send the cursor to that location instantly :3 WANT !

    I'm enjoying this voice recognition stuff... I've been looking into TTS (text-to-speech) too. I like to ask the computer things and have it respond with the time, or date... Need to add the weather next :] I do have some issues though; voice recognition picks up what the computer is saying...

    I think I'll add a command that causes the computer to start talking to itself and responding to itself with different voices... I really would like to program a simple AI though. Would be fun to have an intelligent PC.

    Oh, that reminds me of a funny video...

    Oya back to the all-nighters... I should pace myself better :[
    A game on Steam called "Out There Somewhere", is being recommended to fans of Cave Story... BTW ITS 96% OFF! That's 0.19 cents ... Not sure if it's a glitch...

    VVVVVV is the first game that I really remember noticing that too. I'm sure there are more examples, but I can't think of any! Maybe it's because of that one LONG tunnel in VVVVVV that I died on so many times... D:

    Btw! Another game on Steam for 0.19 cents...! It's a kind of Portal-ish 3d puzzle platformer from the looks of it. Quite short from the sounds of it.
    Called "Polarity".

    I'm a sucker for such a low price. Otherwise I'd never have looked at the game... I'm tempted...

    I've seen the map screen names in other games too. Ex. You Have to Win the Game (So it seems I posted this almost a year late. Oops)
    Just finished binge watching Psycho-Pass... It's really pretty good :] Anyone see it?
    Mmmmm, I do love teasing myself looking at products out of my price range...

    Anybody been keeping up with all that virtual reality going around? That Steam VR or HTC re Vive looks pretty cool.
    Being able to actually walk while wearing VR gear around and manipulate stuff sounds like they are finally getting somewhere. It still looks a little heavy to me though... and needing a completely empty room to walk around in?? Only place that comes to mind is the garage... [if the cars are out of it ... lol]

    There are some neat other accessory ideas for VR, but not sure which will take off... if any at this stage.
    Omni-directional treadmills. So that you can stay in a single area but have the benefit of seemingly walking in an unlimited sized enviroment.

    Still, now all we need is direct nerve interface technology so we can Enter the Matrix... (but... I can only imagine what can go wrong there... lol)

    Microsoft Hololenses have a really nice idea behind them... Augmented reality...
    Instead of taking us away to VR land, augment reality with tools, applications, etc that aren't tied to looking down at a phone. So like, I want to know the distance between here and here. And BAM without loading up different software, taking pictures, breaking out a ruler, etc; I get an accurate measurement just by *staring*.
    Or putting those qr codes on the wall or something, and being able to load them just by staring at them. Maybe a link to a video that suddenly appears on the wall... Or maybe go shopping, and look at the UPCs as you go, and it will automatically add up the price as you go. And then look at a QR code here and there for coupons that will automatically deduct the price; so you can keep track as you go...
    I dunno how useless this first generation of Hololens thing will be; but I can see an interesting future ahead ;]

    I think you've written more than enough to start a thread with, X! ^_^;
    Wish I could play the piano this well... It's actually just a midi, and I added some pictures to it :] Maybe I should start working on the piano again, it's a waste to let those piano classes go down the drain lol

    Anyway, that's a nice midi. I'm sure that if you practiced a bit, you'd be able to play this on piano ~
    Flipping through e-mails when I saw these two figures advertised... I've never bought any statues before, but... almost makes me want one :3 Though there's no telling if they would be as good as the promotional sample pics...

    Seems customer service was baffled, as there was no record of the orders... They appreciated my help though, and thanked me for my honesty...
    It would have been nice to keep, but I'm sure someone somewhere, is waiting on their flashcards to come in the mail!
    New year's resolution... need to create a schedule to live by... I'm wasting too much time!

    The about section pictures? Top picture is an image of Saber holding the Excalibur that I manipulated in photoshop ... I suppose I put that image up because I edited it and although that sword is not the same as my name, the origins are the same...
    Saber is a strong figure that stands alone for most of her life. Even when surrounded by others.
    From a great anime/novel, Fate/stay night.

    The second picture is of Kurisu Makise and Rintaro Okabe "Kyouma Hououin", scientists from the anime/novel Steins;Gate. Another edited image I messed with... Kurisu seems worried that Okabe will disappear without a trace in that picture... It's a time travel thing :0
    The youtube video at the bottom is a song from the show/movie/game...
    I guess I put it up since it personifies my fear of disappearing and no one noticing.

    That and I love those characters and their stories xD

    Hey X-Calibar. With the CS+ port of my fourth ending mod on the horizon, as well as the 3rd anniversary of it drawing near, I just thought you should know that that mod wouldn't be what it is if it weren't for your <a href='http://www.cavestory.org/forums/index.php?/topic/1671-alternate-pathending/' class='bbc_url' title=''>"Alternate Path/Ending"</a> thread. My mod drew a lot of inspiration from some of the ideas you posted in that thread, such as skipping the fight with Curly, giving Booster the Cure-All, and finding King and Toroko in jail and rescuing them. So thank you so much for helping make my mod what it was.
    Classes finished for this year! Yay! Now, to listen to some soothing Binding of Isaac music... Zzzzz

    You must be almost free! I've been finally getting some rest, and hope to have a normal schedule by the next week...
    Can't believe that today's already the 18th though... too FAST!

    I <em class='bbc'>could</em> be getting rest. Instead, here I am at 2:30 in the morning. ~.~

    I'm glad that you have, though. This month has certainly passed quickly, but I'm looking forward to the end of the year yayfest. Hopefully the spirit of this season takes its time in leaving. ~w~
