I understand that in a competitve game losses are inevitable. I know that. Losing is always a possibility in a game.

but jesus fucking christ, when the losses start mounting. Self-loathing doesn't even begin to describe it. Losses are guaranteed but victories never are despite how hard it feels like I'm trying and all I want is a sign I'm progressing and doing better.


In competitive gaming there is always a sort of Conservation of Fun principle: one side's rewarding victory is often the other side's source of frustration. That's why it's always best to match people with similar skill levels, so that they can each give and take each other's fun in harmonious balance.


i know that fps competitive is filled with hackers


>i know that fps competitive is filled with hackers
That's only a problem because the morons in the games industry are retarded control fetishists that can't just let people play with their toys the way they want.

The dichotomy between players and hackers is false. Inventing anti-cheat software and turning it into root-kits that infect your OS like a type of malware was also retarded.

The only thing they had to do was sort player in to groups with similar play-behavior.
For example sorting people according to skill-level and making different servers for newbie, intermediate, enthusiast and superhuman skill, would have fixed the problem. The sorting could be done via server-site player metrics. All the "cheaters" would be sorted into the superhuman skill corner where they would bother nobody with their bot-competition.

Why are the androids potrayed as the victims when it is clear they are displacing people who only want to work to provide for themselves, arenthey they the real victims? The only people who are well off are the ones who own the androids.

Today machines aren't a source of economic value, they only are crystalized labor-power. But lets assume a hypothetical future where machine-workers have become the equivalent of humans. That means they re-produce them selves and they can generate economic surplus on top of that.

Machines, robots, androids etc are not the one's displacing people. Automation on it's own has never done that. The problem is that capitalists are trying to abuse machines to increase their personal share of the economic-output at the expense of pretty much any other consideration.

If you organized the economy in a sane manor, machines and people would just work together and cooperate for maximum desirable economic outcomes for everybody.

When the capitalists force people out of work they reduce the overall output of the economy. Even if people are inferior to machines at a task, removing people is still removing a net economic contribution. Which shrinks the economy relative to a machine-human-cooperative model. The capitalist choose the machine-human-competitive model because that generates more for them personally, even if that results in an overall much worse economy.

Remember capitalists are the ones that are making workers un-employed. Technology is not the source of Un-employment or economic insecurity.

As a rule of thumb
In capitalism, the capitalists are the source of most problems.
Most of the suffering is caused by labor-competition.

Also if human-equivalent-androids were ever constructed, the surplus from human workers would be the spark of life that created them, and the cyber-punk mega-corp that seeks to own and control them would be doing slavery of artificial people. Human workers and android-slaves would be natural allies.


>Human workers and android-slaves would be natural allies.
You're right, good post.

Share you best outcome from playing the game!

This was my best so far. My strategy was to first get the military under control, then do land reform and set up the economy, hold an election with as much legitimacy as possible, and finally to build up stuff like medicine, education, and infrastructure. It went alright for the most part, but the IMF is going to kill the country later, much like what happened in Yugoslavia.

So what did you do? What worked for you?

this is only a preview, because it is scattered over different repos

this is mostly pathfinding experiment + some notes (wiki_main.md etc)

many of it not even related to the idea

BUT you can run it on linux with ./run.sh or ./build.sh (its just go project)

and most of it is even in different repos, basically its not very intereing rn
at least this repo. i just created it for pathfinding experiment, and maybe then some bot testing.
if you run it it only demonstrate the 3d cell-based pathfinding

interesting. I can't open the link, did you set it as public?


lol try now
i made it public, but they need other permissions there as well


I don't want to keep derailing this thread but I have some suggestions (if you are open to suggestions), would you mind posting an email or opening a new thread?

Hidden Agenda.

It's ultimately cringe and surprisingly based at the same time. Cringe, because it's peak virtual socdemmery shice which expects you to unite the private exploiters and the death squads with their slaves fur le cummon goot. Based, since it unknowingly teaches you that it is impossible to drive society-oriented humane politics when the main production forces still reside in private property instead of a governmental one at least.
And guess what, even if you slam your ministy with the most supposedly radical fighters for socialism, some of which were commanders in guerrilla and others stuffed in prisons, you still won't get a chance to promote any move that comes out of succdam way. E.g. there's an event where landless farmers say it's enough and just go and take the land from the big guys and ask you to legalize it ‒ and you won't, since you can only take path of either a seething big guy or your so-called radical ministers, all of whom would gently ask you to pacify the dang dirty wageslave stupid proles by speeches of a soft reformation for le cummon of ouh nayshun.

And yeh, this is also the grandpa of that shiddy chauvinistic political "sim" that is called "Crisis in the Kremlin" ‒ even the main gameplay screen, as you can (I hope) see, is practically the same.

How that self-imposed challenge going, anon?

Working on that single-credit clear? Finally going to break that speed record? Trying to finish that adventure without potions?

You do… challenge yourself, don't you? Anon?

Whew, finally figured it out. I was whipping his chin the whole time and you actually have to attack his eyes! Once I figured it out it was really easy. Perhaps I'll get back to my Hard mode single-credit clear attempt of Contra Rebirth now.

I think 2023 might just be the year that I finally beat Terraria on a one-world-one-life hardcore master mode challenge. I'm enjoying some of these recent balance changes that reduce a lot of the grinding that piled on with v1.4. Starting a new world isn't quite as tedious with a lot of these changes.

Gettin close to a juicy single-credit clear of Raiden Fighters 2 lately. I can get to the final stage every now and then but die pretty quickly.

You asked for it, you get it


I never wanted this


File: 1676321081555.jpg ( 73.87 KB , 1000x667 , told you so richard.jpg )

why do they think they are on a "side of history" ?
Isn't entertainment meant to be escapism from the part of reality that matters to history ?

>You asked for it, you get it

Who asked for this ?

If those games were foss-software people could create a non-snitching-fork of the game and none of this would matter. Those that wanted the policed experience would stay on the original branch an everybody else would migrate to the forked branch.
People would also have already created plug-ins that auto-mute excessively rude teenagers, assuming that's the point of contention ?

And it's possible to do free-software but with closed art assets which basically keeps the "muh business model" unchanged.

No accounts, no registration, no money, no accounts. Just hang out and chat! Been going strong since 2003.
A number of people from leftypol Matrix play but no clue how many board users know about this. It's been a meme on 4chan since 2004, but it's a bit esoteric.



It's basically dead until huge holidays like new eyars and christmas which is when image board users jump on and party.

Sorry sweetie. Workers are reactionary now. Only low t liberal arts students with pronouns in their bio and tech/media workers with soft hands and a porn addiction are revolutionary. Please educate yourself, polyp.


Fuck game "workers".

Why are you so defeatist? The American government is experiencing unparalleled levels of illegitimacy. How can you claim to be a socialist if you aren't going to stand up for the entire proletariat, even those in the Imperial core? You sound like a liberal arts student gonzaloite.

Yeah, I hope that terrible gangstalking and doxing website (kiwifarms) gets taken down for good. How many people need to die because of bullying before Cloudflare and whoever hosting it finally shut it off? The celebration of doxing/bullying on there is just sick and wrong and obviously it has real world consequences.

About SNES Emulators: Been trying to think of how best to emulate/recreate the handheld gaming experience. My ideas so far are a modded Gameboy Advance/SP or Rasberry Pi with emulators put onto it. :D I have a switch deck pre-ordered too, so I am excited about the potential for emulation on it! :] There's always PC too for emulation.

Sorry to hear about Near, R.I.P. <3


Chris was right to rape her mom, or… what is it you're trying to argue, exactly?


>94/105 negative reactions to this post
What was your point again?


Imagine trying to judge a whole community based on one random post when 90% of that same community downvoted it.
