Pretty clever putting the Advent Children swords on the walls, looks awesome dood

These look really good! I think they'll fit the style of the game/backgrounds better than a lot of other packs on here

Sort/Search will never be satisfying on a forum, it isn't really made for that.

The ideal solution would be a database of mods that can be browsed with some web app, indexing with search and sort could be done with a free Algolia account to keep results instant and simple -- and also store the mod files in a central location, because links die and things get lost forever.

It could also serve as a single source of truth for a mod manager

But that is starting to get into the weeds...

C can be manageable with the right tools/proper documenting practices, but it is pretty barebones as far as adding comfort to the programmer, C++ gets a little better. Something like C# feels like alien technology in comparison. Visual Studio can cut down on a lot of debugging/documenting pain points.

If we are going to talk about languages that can cause ptsd, I may as well throw PHP into the mix

Do you believe that a 1080Ti is a bad option too Knife? And who can even afford a Titan... pfff
Pretty much, yeah. The top end of the next gen should be able to do the job on a single card

My GPU am cry. I'll have to hold off on this game until nvidia releases their next round of cards, seems like a bad time to upgrade.

The modding was a super cool move by SE

master branch looks a little dusty, what is going on in develop?

edit: now I remember why I'm a nodejs dev   :?

I thought the game was pretty good, definitely better than the 13 series. I feel bad for the developers, they could have used another several months of runway but that's business for you.

@cyberman we've established that DLPB only likes games from the 90's, there's no way he'd even give it a chance

I must really not be grasping how deep the rabbit hole goes into the world of accounting.

Great work!

Release dates are like fight club, you don't talk about them

"Mum" is a very British way of saying it as opposed to Mom in Amurica. "Mahh" would make sense if FFVII took place in Boston -- no offense to Boston but please don't

I guess my point is that not all English is created equal.

Just found this article inside there's a algorithm for enhancing pixelated pictures called PixelCNN. Maybe someone can give it a try on FFVII/VIII backgrounds; the code is in python and I don't have that kind of knowledge to try this out.

From their GitHub:

This code supports multi-GPU training of our improved PixelCNN on CIFAR-10 and Small ImageNet, but is easy to adapt for additional datasets. Training on a machine with 8 Maxwell TITAN X GPUs achieves 3.0 bits per dimension in about 10 hours and it takes approximately 5 days to converge to 2.92.

To run this code you need the following: a machine with multiple GPUs

Holy cats. Using this tool doesn't seem unreasonably difficult, do you have multiple nvidia gpus?

Edit: But I don't think you'll get anything desirable out of it

an SSL cert would be neat

I'd really like those :-)

Are you going to make the recordings available?

There aren't any midi files in ff7 PSX for the sound effects. Akao wrote a program to create the file effect from samples.  It's literally impossible to recreate the sound without recreating his program and how the PS1 sound chip uses the data it is supplied. It's not a case of "finding a midi" - none exists.  Nothing exists at all except for a few samples and the program he wrote to tell the PS1 sound chip how to make those samples play - and his program uses jumps and all sorts.

If I can get the PSX to play the effects in isolation, then I can sample them perfectly.

Actually, if you have a recording of these effects in isolation, I can sample them and make a PSX parity soundbank

I'll need it. :P

Sampling the midi instruments won't help you unless you plan on recreating the sound creator itself - meaning AKAO's program to form the sounds - and the sound chip of the PS1. It's basically a custom PSF for each effect.  And we're still not sure where the data to create them comes from. Probably the PSX exe.

My plan would be to modify one of the midi files in the PSX disc to play tones of each instrument in isolation, record the sound to flac, and then use some fancy sampling software to make a Kontakt instrument. Then the PC midi would be identical to PSX, or almost identical to it. There's a lot of instruments.

I got excited there for a second. Someday I will sample those PSX midi instruments. Good luck with all that editing

Creating all 700+ OGGs will take longer

You are going from midi with a homebaked soundbank to OGG right? I could make you a script for this

Riddle me this, where did 'the USA' come from?

First off, I'm a bit of a nihilist.

Realistically, do you think a blanket ban is going to fix anything? I don't think so. A blanket ban is implying that everyone originating from the middle east is inherently evil. That is not how you solve a problem, it is how you ignore a problem.

This is going to trigger a lot of infighting between people, a lot of lawsuits, motivation for violence etc. The net change is negative.

Does simple machines have a module/capability for a mobile view -- because that would be pretty cool

Real life gave House of Cards a real run for its money plot-wise this past year.
