#448498 What games are people playing these days!?

Posted macdude22 on 16 March 2018 - 06:51 AM

When I was a kid playing Realmz I always thought it was neat Tim Phillips basically lived right up the road. Then Scott Adams ended up basically across the street and thats how I got signed copies of Adventureland.

Who's this wierdo asking for me to sign floppy disks......act naturally maybe he won't kill me >_>

#448365 Weird mail server problem

Posted macdude22 on 28 February 2018 - 03:15 PM

It sounds like a DNS issue. Depending on the TTL (and the last time the device had queried the address) if there was a DNS issue the iOS devices might have still had the address cached but it had aged out on the Mac.

#448329 Vulkan Officially Released - No Mac Support

So Dota 2 runs faster with Vulkan code translated to Metal than with openGL code? It'd go even faster with native Metal code.
Seriously, I don't see anyone beside Valve using this translation layer for macOS games, but I'd be interested in hearing Feral's take on this.

I could see it being useful for code weavers if the uptake was better. But according to wikipedia there's only a couple dozen vulkan games anyway. I think the best case scenario is more developers use vulkan now that it can be relatively portable to a platform full of hungry paying customers.

vulkan to metal translation layer sounds nice but is anyone using vulkan over directX 12?

The usual porting houses feral and aspyr are already adept at natively porting directX to metal and the major engines like Unreal4 already support metal so I’m not sure who this is for unless there is more uptake in vulkan than I realized.

I had a tap around on the 2nd gen KB recently and I didn't hate it, but I am concerned about it failing. Mildly encouraging to hear your experiences with them. Any observations re: huge-ass trackpad palm rejection?

I don't use my tester 1st gen tBP very much but have not had any issues and have heard no complaints from any of the natives. I think Apple must have fat palm rejection licked.

Games we want you to port?

ELEX. I've long had a soft spot for the quirky, yet engrossing games of Piranha Bytes. I originally played the Risen series on 360 and then went back and played some of the Gothic games via WINE. It sounds kind of like a hot mess but I can't help but pine for the medieval steampunk nonsense of ELEX on my Mac.

#447802 Star Trek Discovery

The Orville is great! Anyone who discounts it because “Seth McFarlane” is doing themselves a serious disservice. STD (lololololololol) is a passable Battlestar Galactica clone but it is a terrible Star Trek. Worse than Voyager, and that’s saying something.

Skip STD, grab a hulu 7 day trial, and binge the pure joy that is The Orville.

I have fond memories of Clan Lord as a wee young lad in the 90s. I'd tried to go back a few times over the past decade but the lack of players and the truly 90s nature of it was too much. I will pour one out for our classic game in arms.

And you should know the Claptrap character is by far the worst one to play in the trilogy.  His random action skill usually hurts you and your co-op buddies during a fight.

tBC looooooooooooooves when I play clappy. It reminds him of the time he got the clap back in '71.
