It doesn't immediately look like RetroArch PUAE supports games with two joystick inputs, or that use all four CD32 buttons. Is that right?

Maybe possible with custom .uae files. I’ll have a poke tomorrow.

Tough enough ride out this morning. Windy, and quite cold, wiht bits of rain on and off. Went a little further too - up over 40 miles now.

Kids are upstairs playing Wild West something together and laughing their heads off. Some would have you believe this is somehow bad because they aren’t playing with plastic horses and guns but in Roblox.

RIP o7

Lord Varta strikes again. Many traces and chip legs were lost.

Watched this earlier. Wasn’t expecting much, but it was actually good. Nice little tale about AIs that isn’t entirely what it seems on the surface.

restic wanted to reupload the 500Gb backup again entirely after I copied it to the new NAS. TIL it looks at inode number as “has changed” criteria, and separates backups by host name. I think it’s behaving itself now on this dry run though with command line switches to ignore or set those.

I fucking knew I had this. It’s got misfiled somehow when I moved house six or seven year ago, and now found in a box headed for the dump! The old BluRay player box … maybe I’d been playing it? Still no sign of my Aliens BluRay though.

Twice this week I’ve had to be on the road before 7am. WTF, this week.

Is there still an Android File Transfer app for macs? The links are showing me a blank page.

Seems the official mac Android File Transfer app is long dead. However, this is FOSS and seems to work: https://github.com/ganeshrvel/openmtp

Big IT upgrade shenanigans at Mrs’ work. Summary: “The presentations were lies, the test site are morons who didn’t test anything but said it was all fine, functions don’t work, half work or are simply not there, everything is on fire, and everyone is very, very cross.”

Teams calls with people in an open office so you have to shout over the loud co-worker on a different call beside them 🤦🏻‍♂️

Calling every first-person shooter game from 1993 to 1996 "a DOOM clone" was equally as silly as calling games "roguelike" nowadays. I will stop using that term immediately!

I have to admit, I'm enjoying the no-hassle-it-just-prints ness of my new laser printer.

It's been a minute or two since I was last on the front page of https://whdload.de

2009 or so.

Is it any wonder we talk about the weather in Northern Ireland?

Yesterday: wearing a hat and worrying about sunburn while working in the garden.

Today: Stair rod downpours, blustery winds, and foundered just by nipping out the bin.

@shezza_t I went to the shop earlier, maybe a mile away, no more. It was chilly enough for a fleece when I left the house; at the shop it was t-shirt weather; then I got hailed on on the way back. At one point I could see the hail falling from the clouds on either side of the road but not -on- the road.

And this is when I was messing about with cameras and transforms in Haxe and Kha.

This is four moving cameras looking on to the same static scene, with screen space picking of individual sprites.

Here's a bit of fun: I found a video of the Power Rangers PC game that I'd made for Boy when he was 5. This later became Dodgy Rocks.
