i am not making anything good, as usual

i am in love with games and its...environment and making it is supposed to be my lifelong dream but it suddenly looks troublesome

2 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-05-05 08:33 ID:1zabstXU

Hard to do things can suddenly become fun when you git gud at it.

3 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-06-17 13:12 ID:3fWxxBa/

if you really like games then at least try before you give up because it LOOKS hard. ive never been into making games but thats mostly because i am bad at making things fun. i would say go for it and at least try.

[HELP] Single questions & Help Thread [n00b] (359)

1 Name: CyB3r h4xX0r g33k 2005-09-05 20:53 ID:KxkIsG20

If you have a single (or some more) question regarding any of the tech topics of this board and feel that it wouldn't justify creating an own thread just for that, feel free to post it in here.

If you know the answer to any of the questions in this thread, please help us out here! I am sure it's going to be appreciated.

I am creating this thread since there's ben popping up too many threads lately with single questions asking for help that aren't really set out to create too much interest.

Running Debian 64-bit. Tried to enable multiarch to install Wine 32bit. I was suggested these commands by the "wine64-bin helper package." I ran these commands as root:

# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt-get update
# apt-get install wine-bin:i386

When I tried the last command, this was the output:

The most relevant information, I think, is at the bottom:

dpkg: error: --configure needs a valid package name but 'libuuid1' is not: ambiguous package name 'libuuid1' with more than one installed instance

Same idiot again. I'm going to go ahead and just backup and reinstall, but if anyone has had this happen before and got it fixed, you can post it. I imagine I'm not the only one, even if it seems like it from the google results I got.

Disabling this is not an option, I must have it or I cannot do my homework. What am I supposed to do?

ubuntuzilla is a repository containing the latest stable versions of mozilla's three programs.

currently hosted at sourceforge.

I recently bought a Gateway DX4375-UR22. It came with a 1 terabyte hard drive. I turned it on, and it booted up using Ubuntu. Me being me, I stupidly decided to take it apart. I put it back together, and now there is a problem with the hard drive. Everything else works fine, except for the hard drive. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 1000 Gigabyte. I decided to try it in another computer, but the other one does not recognize it as a drive. I tried putting a hard drive from another computer into the Gateway to see if it would boot, but no luck. The seagate drive spins, but it is not transferring data or being recognized. Can I save the drive? How can I boot up the computer?

356 Post deleted.

357 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2018-09-17 04:27 ID:2yNllzAU

You didn't take the fucking drive itself apart, did you? If so it's fucked, buy a new one.
If I'm reading you wrong, then I guess the chances are you didn't plug it in properly. It's getting power fine, but are you sure there's any actual data connection?

hello i d like to know how 3d physics and geometry interaction happens in game?
like perhaps how polygons and vector points causes the objects to behave

359 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-06-15 09:20 ID:qBTBQzxc

Hm. First, this is usually done by existing engines. There are 2d physics engines and 3d physics engines, search for them. In simple cases you don't really need for them though.

Try watching unity tutorials, they explained how models often have a different simplified model specifically for physics. Something that looks like a chair may have a much more low polygon collision box than the model you actually look at.

In 2d games, hitboxes are often a bunch of squares, but they can be a bunch of circles, or even repeat the shape of what you see pixel to pixel.

Wow this place is fucking dead.

Prickhard Stallman

12 Name: : 2021-05-07 16:31 ID:4JSYVEzx

Richard Stallman taught us that:

  1. In America "you can get arrested without a reason."
  2. Russian spy "Edward Snowden is a Great Hero."
  3. HAMAS terrorists are the good guys, while Israel is a fascist state.
  4. "The US military" are the "violent white supremacists." "The US owes reparations to Iraq for the damage it has done."
  5. "The US military is poisoning [low-income] communities across the US with toxic chemicals."
  6. It is wrong that "the US government has persecuted Julian Assange for a decade for Wikileaks' journalism."
  7. "Publishing of leaked secret [American] information" is journalism, and not espionage or sabotage.
  8. Terrorist Iranian dictatorship, trying to make a nuclear bomb, are the good guys, and America should ally with it.
  9. "US today — plutocracy, extractivism and dooH niboR."
  10. "US government doesn't try to operate fair taxation."
  11. American "democracy is a sham."
  12. "We must defeat [American] plutocracy."

I don't agree with some of RMS's political ideas, but I agree with most or all of his software ideas. I signed the support RMS open letter. Also is RMS actually Jewish? Is RMS white?

If Free Software is so good why is there no Free Software 2?

But seriously, with Windows cmd you can just run "program /switches | clip" and it will copy stdout to clipboard. How do I do that with Linux? Using default Linux software only (no 3rd party software)?

/code/ Challenge № III - Dokyun Calendar (4)

1 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2021-01-25 02:38 ID:JgcWjPb2 This thread was merged from the former /code/ board. You can view the archive here.

I always enjoyed doing these back on /prog/. Here's the deal:

Dokyun Calendar
Input: one non-negative integer, corresponding to a certain number of days after September 1st, 1993 (inclusive).
Output: three non-negative integers, corresponding to the day, month, and year, in the calendar of your choice.

There are no damn rules, just make something cool!
Addendum: don't forget leap years.

The best submission, as determined by the hive mind, wins ten (10) Internet Cool Guy Points.

2 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2021-02-14 18:03 ID:VRfdhI8j

Nice idea, but it feels almost wrong to have something like that. It breaks the magic, if you will. Something that goes the other way (takes a date in some format and outputs the September 1993 date) seems like a better idea.

from datetime import date
from datetime import timedelta
def norm2dqn(year, month, day):
dqnday = date(1993, 8, 31)
norm = date(year, month, day)
return (norm - dqnday).days
def dqn2norm(day):
dqnday = date(1993, 8, 31)
norm = dqnday + timedelta(days=day)
return norm
print(norm2dqn(2021, 6, 9))

I'm pretty gay, but I'm not really a programmer.
It's more of a brainlet codemonkey thing imo.

5 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-05-24 06:46 ID:fl2y6veb

Some hardware seems to have been made by fags.

Weeks ago I partly disassembled then basically completely reassembled a DVD drive and now it does not work. And yes I checked to see if the rubber band thing was connected correctly and I checked to see that all of the wires were connected. There was a rattling noise when it was tilted, but that was just the bearings.

P.S. I can't wait to use old xfsprogs to access an old XFS HDD (maybe I'm overstating my interest):

Old version of windows (14)

1 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2020-07-12 07:38 ID:E6pQ0wWM

Is there any clear disadvantage to using an old version of windows (xp, vista, 7) over windows 10? Are there any workarounds for those disadvantages?

5 Name: !!MU/MFysn : 2021-02-24 05:17 ID:uD86CgFl

No advantages. Live in the future.

6 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2021-02-25 20:21 ID:sv1Q5c7I

The advantage is not using the cancer that is Windows 10.

7 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-03-18 05:58 ID:jpeZMnJ2

Instead of running obsolete and unsecure code run Linux lmao

8 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-03-19 18:45 ID:dwX2cRRA

The advatanges are various but the main desadvantage is literally:"old software"

9 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-04-05 21:02 ID:yz7nyi1D


>Windows 10 has destroyed more of my data with nonconsensually forced reboots than any virus or hacker ever did

Good thing that my shitty Windows 10 laptop has such a small hard drive that Microsoft ran out of enough space to keep pushing updates to and the Win 10 laptop was last update in like 2019.

P.S. This was sorta interesting -- I guess the point is that a lot of systems linked to as a default/placeholder value which could lead to bad things, if I remember correctly and didn't miss the point:

There is literally a switch that says about no updates.

12 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-05-05 08:45 ID:vG1qTHuH

The main disadvantage is not being able to run newer software that drop support for older versions of Windows, but in most cases you can still use the older versions that still work. Sometimes the programs will work even though they're no longer supported.

Here's also some advantages:
You can run old games and software easier. You can run old 16-bit DOS programs directly in CMD. Your system will be less of a target for newer viruses that mainly target Windows 10.

When did you realize that the future is now (6)

1 Name: Anonymous Techie : 2021-04-27 22:39 ID:sPEPe7vz

For me it was a slow gradual shift that began around 2012 when Palmer started the Oculus Kickstarter and today I just now realized that I am officially living in the future

Video related is proof of this
That would have seemed absolutely sci-fi just 10 - 15 years ago.
To create that video you would have needed a ton of money and a sophisticated Hollywood team but now I can create it just goofing around in my room while drunk.
