I'm in the process of packing up for my big move to NZ so you're likely to see lots of nostalgia posts over the next few weeks.

Bash shell scripting can be useful, but the syntax can be incredibly picky and annoying.

@edenwaith that's why I prefer Python syntax. 😉

It was a pretty tough day again. 😓
At least I found a good spot to go for a walk to free my mind.

I totally forgot how adorable cows are. The last time I encountered trusty cows was when I was 4 years old.

@vga256@dialup.cafe avatar

so for the past month i've been leaving old vhs movies on in the background while i work

i noticed that several tapes had faded audio that got worse over the course of the film, with a lot of humming in the background, to the point of being inaudible after a while. a few web searches suggested either a worn out vhs tape (which I feared), or a poorly tracked vcr (I adjusted the tracking, which didn't improve anything)

i did notice that my older JVC vcr never had the "stereo" light on when playing back movies, and had a suspicion:

so holy crap, til: most VHS tapes past a certain age have two audio tracks: an analog mono track, and a stereo hi-fi track

when the vcr can't track the stereo hi-fi track properly, it switches to the analog mono track on the edge of the tape.

my vcr was always downgrading to the analog track, which on several (ex-rental) tapes had degraded due to mishandling and abuse (being at the edge of the tape path)

i picked up a Sony SLV-778HF today for $20 just to see if switching VCRs would make a difference.

holy COW is this a huge improvement over my old 80s JVC vcr! not only did it pick up the stereo hi-fi track on all of the "bad" tapes perfectly, but it improved the video so much that it looks like a dvd.

@ramon_wilhelm@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@vga256 this is just amazing! Didn't know that this Sony VCR coud improve a lot! This must be the perfect VCR to digitize VHS tapes!

ramon_wilhelm,
@ramon_wilhelm@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@vga256 great idea! :) Wish I could digitize new VHS tapes again. It's a great experience and I still have my VHS-Video-Grabber. I'm using a program called VirtualDub.

Thank you all for these cool titles for Yip Quest!

Even if one of these titles was not chosen as the title for the first Yip Quest game, it could be still taken for one of Yip Quest's successors (with mentions in the credits, of course!)

Deadline is May the 1st!

Yip! Yip! Yip!

Name a game you've once started but never finished in your whole life.

Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine. 🙈

ramon_wilhelm,
@ramon_wilhelm@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@vga256 agree with you. I remember the only end boss I've defeated was the frost guard at the beginning. After a computer crash I've lost my mood and never installed it again since.

We both should catch up later.

@vga256 also played with the keyboard and yeah, playing this game with a keyboard felt some kind of ham-handed.

My sister once noted, that this game felt like a bad Tomb Raider clone. 😅

I've started playing Dreams in the Witch House by Atom Brain Games and translate it into German at the same time.

Sorry, that it took so long, but I'm happy I can finally start.

This game won in the category Best Programming of the AGS Awards 2023!
