22 Oct 20, 03:25 PMRetrogradeRun: Or are spectacularly autistic I suppose
22 Oct 20, 03:25 PMRetrogradeRun: The bosses don't really change but the rooms become impossible to avoid taking damage in if you don't have the right weapon
22 Oct 20, 03:24 PMRetrogradeRun: After doing 17 loops of Monolith I'm kind of done with that game
22 Oct 20, 03:10 PMSlightlyJames: It might just be because I'm having a slow day, but I'm sitting here tryna program a transport layer and my brain is so flooded lol
22 Oct 20, 03:06 PMSlightlyJames: ...actually in 5e that feat only circumvents the threatened penalty when you're using a crossbow. :D
22 Oct 20, 03:03 PMSlightlyJames: It's not 2 feats though I guess.
22 Oct 20, 03:00 PMSlightlyJames: Assuming that means you need that feat to not essentially have disadvantage against people in your face, that's in 5e as well.
22 Oct 20, 02:33 PMzingmars: That's another dumb thing that fucks people up
22 Oct 20, 02:32 PMzingmars: Basically you're forced to take 2 ranged feats on your mages or they're going to be useless and miss all the time
22 Oct 20, 02:32 PMzingmars: Also pathfinder (both game and the tabletop) has dumb stuff like [link]
22 Oct 20, 02:28 PMzingmars: Like pitting you against swarms when you barely have any splash damage
22 Oct 20, 02:28 PMzingmars: It's mostly putting seemingly simple quests early on that have monsters that you're barely equipped to deal with
22 Oct 20, 02:27 PMzingmars: Ah no, it's not that bad
22 Oct 20, 02:26 PMSlightlyJames: Dark Souls 2 is a game that thought the 'you're gonna die lol' marketing for Dark Souls 1 is what was good about it so it's full of cheap shit to try and catch you out and kill you.
22 Oct 20, 02:24 PMzingmars: Maybe, I never actually played the 2nd one
22 Oct 20, 02:23 PMSlightlyJames: Oh is it Dark Souls 2
22 Oct 20, 02:22 PMzingmars: Like so much that a lot of people actually quit because of that shit
22 Oct 20, 02:22 PMzingmars: Just be warned that the devs went all in on dumb noob traps at the beginning
22 Oct 20, 02:20 PMSlightlyJames: I did pick that up. I'm interested in giving it a go.
22 Oct 20, 02:06 PMzingmars: Because I don't want to beta-test BG3 and there hasn't been any other worthwhile DnD in the past decade that I can think of
22 Oct 20, 02:06 PMzingmars: Replaying Pathfinder Kingmaker
22 Oct 20, 02:05 PMSlightlyJames: What are you playing.#
22 Oct 20, 01:38 PMzingmars: At least IRL the DM would take pity on you after the first few rolls. Video games just want you to see you suffer.
22 Oct 20, 01:37 PMzingmars: Thanks RNGesus, very cool
22 Oct 20, 01:36 PMzingmars: DC - 20. Roll modifier - +11. Roll failed - 10 times in a row.
22 Oct 20, 01:36 PMzingmars: God I love DnD PC games sometimes
22 Oct 20, 11:35 AMk357: i changed games it was too hard lol
22 Oct 20, 11:35 AMzingmars: that's a very japanese version of Noita kek
22 Oct 20, 08:52 AMk357: [link]
22 Oct 20, 08:35 AMk357: might stream a lil noita or something just to kill some time
22 Oct 20, 08:35 AMk357: how was he doin
22 Oct 20, 08:32 AMSlightlyJames: What did Cthulhu want? He called pretty late
21 Oct 20, 10:56 PMStreemMasheen: [link] call of cthulu
21 Oct 20, 07:43 PMSlightlyJames: Connection setup pretty easy, uploads whenever I save.
21 Oct 20, 07:43 PMSlightlyJames: Alright we're in business
21 Oct 20, 07:30 PMSlightlyJames: I'll have a look. I do like VS Code more than IntelliJ.
21 Oct 20, 07:28 PMzingmars: [link]
21 Oct 20, 07:28 PMzingmars: There are plugins for that, but idk how well they work
21 Oct 20, 07:27 PMSlightlyJames: SFTP
21 Oct 20, 07:26 PMzingmars: Yeah but what are you uploading it through? Git? FTP? or whatever
21 Oct 20, 07:26 PMSlightlyJames: I think it's running Apache on Ubuntu.
21 Oct 20, 07:26 PMSlightlyJames: Just sticking it up on the uni server.
21 Oct 20, 07:25 PMzingmars: What are you deploying to? You can probably find a plugin for it if it's something popular.
21 Oct 20, 07:25 PMSlightlyJames: Wonder if VS Code has any equivalent to the integrated deployment tools you get in IntelliJ Ultimate so I could just actually work from that.
21 Oct 20, 07:24 PMzingmars: VS Code is better for JS, since it was basically built for it
21 Oct 20, 07:24 PMSlightlyJames: Could just write scripts in VS Code and copy them over though I guess.
21 Oct 20, 07:23 PMSlightlyJames: I'll probably be working on IntelliJ for this stuff since we're using that for deployment to the server.
21 Oct 20, 07:23 PMzingmars: [link] I guess this should work for raw js
21 Oct 20, 07:22 PMzingmars: VS Code also ships with a ts linter too which will make it harder to make any dumb mistakes
21 Oct 20, 07:22 PMzingmars: Aw
21 Oct 20, 07:22 PMSlightlyJames: Someone already asked, they want us learning raw JS.
21 Oct 20, 07:22 PMzingmars: Would be great if they let you use typescript, which is basically a js dialect that's a bit more sane and has things like type checking but you'll have to ask
21 Oct 20, 07:20 PMzingmars: Yeah, always use === unless you know what you're doing
21 Oct 20, 07:20 PMSlightlyJames: Seems pretty cursed.
21 Oct 20, 07:20 PMzingmars: Because not caching the length variable actually impacted performance back in the day
21 Oct 20, 07:19 PMzingmars: It becomes even worse when you work with old codebases. I still find shit like "for (var i = 0, arrLength = arr.length; i < arrLength; i++)".
21 Oct 20, 07:19 PMSlightlyJames: I noticed that php has similar looking shit going on where there's == as the sort of lenient equality check and === as the strict one right.
21 Oct 20, 07:17 PMzingmars: Good luck. The class probably won't cover the shitty bits, but here's a taste [link]
21 Oct 20, 07:14 PMSlightlyJames: That's the next part of this web dev class :P
21 Oct 20, 07:14 PMSlightlyJames: Yeah I'm getting ready to fuck JS right now actually
21 Oct 20, 07:14 PMzingmars: Also fuck JS
21 Oct 20, 07:14 PMzingmars: Also hating on PHP is so 2007, it's all fuck JS these days
21 Oct 20, 07:10 PMzingmars: The language also encouraged a lot of boilerplate, but with stuff like [link] that's also going away slowly
21 Oct 20, 07:08 PMSlightlyJames: all the methods I've been using are like parse_ini_file and mysqli_connect. Pretty brief stuff. I enjoy snake case too.
21 Oct 20, 07:08 PMzingmars: Good luck figuring what it is without google (unless you speak hebrew)
21 Oct 20, 07:08 PMzingmars: You would see that token in error messages when you fucked those up
21 Oct 20, 07:08 PMzingmars: Hebrew for ::
21 Oct 20, 07:07 PMSlightlyJames: what in the world is that
21 Oct 20, 07:07 PMzingmars: A big problem with php was std lib's inconsistent naming and shit like T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM
21 Oct 20, 07:07 PMzingmars: PHP is actually getting better with the latest versions. Actually supports more modern features and has less inane shit these days.
21 Oct 20, 07:06 PMSlightlyJames: If I had just a little bit more room I could sneak in a portrait monitor but it's just not gonna happen.
21 Oct 20, 07:05 PMSlightlyJames: I don't hate PHP as much as I expected to from what I'd heard. The dollars are kind of annoying but I can deal with it. I guess I haven't run into whatever makes people dislike it so much yet.
21 Oct 20, 07:05 PMzingmars: My current "I couldn't figure out what to do with the old monitors so I bought a VESA arm for them" setup [link] lol
21 Oct 20, 07:04 PMSlightlyJames: Doing even more programming from home now so I'm spending a hell of a lot of time staring at VS Code or IntelliJ. I want that shit to pop.
21 Oct 20, 07:04 PMzingmars: It's one thing Apple tried to push (Retina) that I would've really liked to see catch on
21 Oct 20, 07:03 PMzingmars: Yeah, it's insane what a difference PPI makes
21 Oct 20, 07:03 PMSlightlyJames: the shit is unbelievably crisp
21 Oct 20, 07:03 PMSlightlyJames: I started hating these panels after I started doing work on my 4k laptop
21 Oct 20, 07:02 PMzingmars: In fact I hate reading things on my old displays now. It just looks too pixelated.
21 Oct 20, 07:02 PMSlightlyJames: Exact same yeah
