Some friend's from Australia left today. We had a great time but it will be nice to get back to working on my game. Here is one of the pictures I took so you can see what a great time we had showing them Seattle.

@grumpygamer I say!! You should've become a professional photographer!! Such a waste of talent to go into game development 🤷‍♂️

i still have not decided whether i wanna go with risc-v or if i wanna roll my own ISA

i guess RV would have the widest appeal but im not really doing a hobby OS side project to appeal to lots of people since it's not like it'll ever really be a practical thing anyway

@eniko laughs in serenetyOS

tizilogic,
@tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@eniko yep.. serenity OS is clearly the exception to the rule.. but here's an idea:
make a hobby OS compatible with AmigaOS

maybe you can singlehandedly rectify the mistakes we made by not making that the dominant OS on the market 🤔

tizilogic,
@tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@eniko it apparently was ahead of its time in many aspects. preemptive multithreading springs to mind, when cooperative multithreading was common..
I'm not an expert that knows a lot of details tbh, I mostly played games on my Amiga 500 as a kid, but I'm amazed how often experts on the topic can tell you "...actually, AmigaOS did that decades ago before it was a thing..."
@RobDangerous is very knowledgeable about it and still owns Amiga computers. He could probably name 5-10 things w/o effort

I really wanna code an operating system 😩

tizilogic,
@tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@eniko the solution is clear:
first invent your own ISA, then write a VM and an assembler and a compiler for it. then write the OS.

Bonus points for implementing the CPU using some HDL to run it on an FPGA board

tizilogic,
@tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@eniko you mistake my lighthearted answer as a joke.. I've already got the ALU and a double framebuffer with HW LCD driver working on my FPGA.. still need to implement the pipeline and instruction decoder at some point though.. I also started a CAD model for a case.
I sure hope my "not so" fantasy console will be completed some day in the future

tizilogic,
@tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@eniko Apple did something in that direction, which is the reason Rosetta 2 can translate x86 so fast. not sure it is directly related to the ISA itself but the overall CPU pipeline design where you can add custom decoders to turn instructions from ISA XYZ into instructions your ISA has available.

but there are many more downsides to having your own ISA instead of one that is commonly available, the most crucial one imo is probably getting to a working (preferrably C) compiler

tizilogic,
@tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@eniko that would be super duper awesome!

makes me wish that this kind of endeavor actually exists as a paid job out there somewhere..

When I first started making games, I'd be sitting next to someone on a plane and they'd ask me what I did. I'd say "I make video games" and they would stare at me unable to process what I said. Now I say "I make video games" and they talk non-stop about what they are playing. I preferred the old way.

@grumpygamer Well, at least you're not in the shoes of Delores Edmund! Shunned by her own uncle for venturing into game development instead of continuing the family business 🤷‍♂️

@gamingonlinux I like the Unity bashing as much as the next one and they sure did step into an ugly puddle of mud.. but godot isn't the answer, hyping them up just balloons the ego of a certain someone even further, w/o magically making godot anything else than a hobbyist project for small games

tizilogic,
@tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

@gamingonlinux oh no, I think it's a great project at what it is. but it has some serious limitations which keep it from being chosen by anything more than a small (hobby) project or game jam entry..

I have a hard time seeing people waste time and money on an engine that is just not well suited for 3D games. at least not w/o a major overhaul of the core of it

PS: I still hope a lot buy the bundle and you get money, since I like your content and everyone is allowed to make mistakes sometimes😉

The new Jsaux dock sure is pretty when lit up huh

@gamingonlinux where can I get one w/o the cheap disco lights on it?

maybe I get a good price even, given they don't have to unnecessarily throw LEDs in it

    you take damage and potentially die, but the boss is defeated and you respawn at the boss spawn location (and you can get loot, if that is a thing). then you proceed normally as if you didn't die after the boss fight

    I don't like the anthropomorphism of "Siri" and "Alexia". I prefer Star Trek's "Computer". I have never used Siri for that reason.

    Tired: treat warnings as errors

    @eniko lol.. if done in an opensource project I already see the PRs coming in hard: "Remove unnecessary compile time warnings"
    😂

    @eniko while it is also funny (thus me laughing), I see the potential this has.. something can be both amusing and useful yk..

    Someone should use machine learning to train a rectangle packing AI

    tizilogic,
    @tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

    @eniko I recently experimented with triangle packing.. I ended up using a 2D physics engine to drop all the triangles into a rectangular container and was surprised how well that worked.. I was going to "close the lid" and then simulate a good shaking to maybe get even better results (or funnier ones.. don't care, I'll take both 😂)

    Our stove top has touch controls. It's ridiculous. Ah yes, I will touch the glass top of my stove with my fingers while using it, thereby risking injury or at the very least having to put my finger on a greasy stove top. Because when people cook on a stove top, grease splatters out of hot pans all over. Who the fuck thought this was a good idea? For the love of god just give me some fucking knobs

    You know what knobs are also good for? Going instantly from any setting to any other setting. With this touch interface bullshit if I wanna turn off one hob from the highest setting without turning off all hobs I have to plonk my finger down and wait for it to slowly cycle down from 9 to 0, going through all full and half digits on the way

    If this is what a "luxury cooking experience" feels like I don't fucking want it

    tizilogic,
    @tizilogic@mastodon.gamedev.place avatar

    @eniko yep.. that's basically what keeps me from renovating our kitchen.. appliances that have touch control and only work part of the time, like be VEERYY sure there's not a single drop of some liquid on the touch area or it might no longer work consistently..

    similar to how some carmakers thought it would be a good idea of making away with buttons and go full touch interface..

    I don't like the future we live in, where can I get a refund??

    Very angry to learn that zero times infinity is not zero. Things like this is why I can't respect mathematics

    tizilogic,

    @eniko the result is clearly NaN!!! why would you expect zero??

    @eniko c'mon.. it's at least going to take another couple of years until the MEI starts for realsies, currently we're just like that cat that Erwin Schrödinger apparently tortured in a box or smth!!
