    A surprising number of people do not seem to understand how intelligent stoplights work. (cont)

    I’ve never heard of such a thing.

    We have them around here, and a lot of people probably don't realize it. If you see something that looks like a camera next to the stoplight, it's an intelligent stoplight; it scans for cars sitting at the intersection so that people aren't waiting on nothing.

    Another easy way to tell is if you pull up to a red light and nobody's at the other side, it almost immediately turns green for you.
    Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap is an awesome game. THAT is a remaster done right. Apparently it was an 8-bit SMS game.

    And they let you switch between modern and retro graphics/sound at the push of a button anytime without even going into menus or anything, even while playing the game if you're ever curious as to how an area looked in the original game, and they kept every single piece of the environment faithful to the original.

    AND, you can even get passwords from the modern game... and I suspect they work on the original version of the game! So you can literally play it on PC and then boot your SMS up if you had one, and input the password and it should work. lol. That's just... genius.
    [Ori] I hate it when they ruin a game by putting something so ridiculously stupid that it tarnises an otherwise nice experience. (cont/rant)

    And what's worse... a lot of those jumps ARE RNG DEPENDANT. The falling rocks, the lava geysers, are seemingly random and half of the time I die knowing exactly what to do, but because stuff was mis-timed, I wind up running out of time and the stupid bird hits me. A-freaking-gain. By the time I get back to where I'm stuck on, I'd forgotten what I saw in the split second before all the fire obscures the viewing area.

    So yeah, nice game, but crappy mechanics at the end there. Too much insta-death with no checkpoints and too much forced repeating of things you already did.

    So the last fight in the FFXIV/FF15 collab was simply awesome. That's how you make a fun solo battle without it being dark souls hard.

    The last few solo quest fights in XIV were annoying because they were long multi-part fights that if you failed them, it took several minutes to get back to where they were and you had rather low margin of error with insta-death conditions.

    This battle was fun, wasn't multi-part and although it did have insta-death, I didn't mind repeating the fight because it was fun and interesting and you could get right back into it if you failed.

    BTW, Just got to the end of it, so my twitch channel has the video of rocket building/launching. I miraculously had almost everything I needed to build it 'cept for some common materials.
    Although your 1.3 Newcomer to Endgame guide is a bit out dated, I really enjoyed reading the finished work word for word. As a newcomer myself, I thought it was rather informative. When I googled good guides, it was the first link to pop up, and thus far as been the only reference I've used. Thanks for the time you put into this.

    I'm no expert on Summoner obviously, but IIRC, isn't the Bee Armor the first actual summoner set? It seems rather intentional that all the sets start Post-EoW/BoC and that the EoW/BoC armor itself isn't really geared specifically to a set (though I think they have very minor melee bonuses) for that reason. I don't think you were meant to choose until after the 2nd boss.
    Xylia
    Xylia
    Obviously stuff like Gypsy Robes etc notwithstanding because those aren't actual sets that you're going to go out and seek.

    I do believe the bee armor is the first summoner gear. But I'd have to kill the boss a couple of times to farm enough mats.
    So apparently discord can detect it's installed on another HDD and pull the settings automatically. (cont)
    Xylia
    Xylia
    THAT is good programming. Other developers should learn from that. I downloaded and installed discord in like 30 seconds, and all of my settings, etc were automatically restored on the new installation. More programs need to be like that.

    the broad amount of settings are stored in the OS drive's userdata folders, hence why Discord remembers what was what when you've set it up on another drive. To get to the data folder on Windows, type %APPDATA% in the location bar, and it will take you there.

    (%appdata% usually sends you to: "C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Roaming")
    Xylia
    Xylia
    Yeah, I reinstalled windows on my SSD and I left my HDD plugged in... and apparently discord knew to check appdata on the other HDD, lol. It probably just scans all the drives attached to the computer to see if it sees any windows installs or appdata folders or something.
    Mmh, so cousin bought me Trails in the Sky I believe the name of it is. Looks good so far! Been looking at the game off and on but (cont)

    .....never actually made the move to go get it and play it. So yay!

    It's a sequel series to Trails in the Sky. While I haven't played cold steel (yet) I absolutely love Trails in the sky and would expect cold steel to be a similar experience.

    (Cold steel still sits in my backlog)

    OH! Haha, actually the one he got me was Trails in the Sky. Whoops. Edited the post to reflect that.
    So... I wonder if people realize that if you say it outright, #MeToo... # was once called the "Pound Key" before the whole Twitter (cont)
    That's what I miss about the JRPG Genre. I started playing Shadow Hearts: From the New World... (cont)

    Xylia
    ....and I've put 10 hours on the clock with very little grinding (1h tops) and almost no side-questing whatsoever and I'm not quite half of the way through the game's storyline. But yet, newer JRPGs like FF12... I beat that game in 21h with a fair amount of dinking around with grinding, etc.
    Xylia
    Xylia
    Newer JRPGs seem like they're full of side quests but the main quest feels shorter.. whereas older games had more meat in the main story with perhaps less side-questing. I think I liked the older JRPGs more, IMO.

    I'm expecting to spend maybe 30-35h on this, from what I recall. So that's a good 50% more game, when comparing the two.
    I feel like a derp. haha. I have a Dualshock to USB adapter (had one for years), and I always thought that it didn't properly detect (cont)

    .....the thumbsticks because I could never get Windows to see the thumbsticks. Here, it's been so long since I messed with PS1 games, that you have to actually push the analog button. I did that and suddenly, windows sees the DPad as a Hat Switch and the thumbsticks both work, just like that. So now I can emulate PS2 games! (cont)

    And dude, the upscaling makes games look awesome even if a couple of my games have glitches because of it. Here's a sample of me messing around in a game: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/344764932 I can stream at 99%-103% FPS, even. The starts and stops are me fiddling with settings, but you get the idea.
    So apparently you can use a memory card to get most PS2 models to play .iso images from a LAN computer's HDD. That is so awesome. (cont)

    I've always had terrible luck with Sony's cheap ODDs, that I've not been using my PSOne/PS2 much because the things go bad so often. But, I ordered one of these memory cards with FMCB installed on it. It's so weird that the system would check the memcard before the BIOS when looking for an OS to boot, lol.
