+1 Agree.  I typically don't question moderators, but DLPB was not the instigator, nor does he deserve the more severe punishment.
My reasoning was mostly based on moderation history; more specifically, only one of the involved users has been warned repeatedly for this type of personal attack over the years. That said, I was in a pretty bad mood yesterday, so deferring to EQ2Alyza's judgment is probably wisest.

Warnings issued. Grow up, guys; we aren't ten year olds and we shouldn't be acting like it.


"Game of Thrones Writers Keep Dropping The Ball"

This kinda looks like a colorspace issue. The game seems to be outputting limited range (16-235) while the media player is outputting full range (0-255). I can't really guess at why it's doing that or how to solve it, but I've seen this problem before in other things.

I just can't let go of the fact that it seems like you don't get to choose whether or not to buy the flower anymore. This brings up questions about the entire "who will Cloud date" mechanic.

Yeah, the consensus everywhere is "Don't watch Dexter", so I definitely won't haha!

Is it worth watching season 1 or does it end on a cliffhanger?  I'm not going to invest time for nothing.
Honestly, the first four seasons of Dexter are absolutely worth watching. The show is pretty good about isolating plot arcs to seasons, especially early on, so you can easily watch the first three without cliffhangers. Season 4 is the best season the show ever got, and it ends on a... sort of cliffhanger? Like, it definitely leaves some questions unanswered, but it still makes for a good stopping point. I would definitely recommend watching Dexter and continuing through the end of season 4.


You should watch Dexter next
Oh, good heavens. Four excellent seasons, one meh season, two crap seasons, and then season 8 was the single worst season of a television program I have ever seen, capped with the single worst episode of television I've seen, a finale so stupid that it makes the rest of the season look brilliant by comparison.

then even stole the work done to fix the game
It wasn't stolen. Not going further into this because it isn't my story to tell, but the rerelease was 100% on the up-and-up.

You hit the nail on the head, LordUrQuan.

Gotta say, I'm not looking forward to the increased moderation load when the official remake comes out. I have no doubt I'm gonna be handing out warnings left and right for people ripping assets from that and importing it into the current PC version.

Done. I didn't even notice the 7H stuff in the post.

Exo2904, please refrain from using the report button for anything other than rule infractions. Reporting your own post because you want an answer faster (it hasn't even been four hours yet) is against the forum rules. ~Covarr


I went ahead and used the same method, but without a CRT shader, to more clearly show what this technique is actually doing to the image. The first half of the video uses the "Pixellate" shader, which is basically nearest neighbor without the rounding errors, and the second half has no shader at all and is basically straight bilinear upscaling.

I think I could get used to playing the game with supersampling and a CRT shader, but if I did, I would definitely do some gamma compensation; the video linked by sen is just too dark.

I swear, I take a couple of days off...

You can't necessarily tell by item/magic/character names what version is being used, because the installer has multiple options, to allow users a choice between more accurate translations and "canon" translations as seen in later games (such as Firaga).

If the videos don't say in the descriptions what versions they're using, you might be able to estimate based on upload dates. However, keep in mind, a new version is on the horizon(-ish) that will make more changes to the script In particular, there are substantial changes to Red XIII's dialogue based on a change in his style of speech at and after Cosmo Canyon, where he stops putting on airs and takes on a more youthful way of talking. This is something both the official translation and earlier versions of the retranslation missed.

Impossible to obtain? It's actually super easy, barely an inconvenience. They aren't unused as far as I know, and are included with every release of the PC version, under data/music.

They're not music, and they're sorta not unused.

As the screenshot shows, they are distributed with the PC version as wav files. I don't remember what sato is (sounds like wind or something?), but heart is a heartbeat sound effect. They're wav files in the PC version because in 1998, when the music was midi, they wanted to ensure that these played back properly with the intended sound, something they couldn't even remotely guarantee with midi files.
