[08:28:31] <Aria> The new Vakyria Chronicles looks really good
[08:28:43] <Aria> I mean, completely unrealted to the first one
[08:28:52] <Aria> But still look a very cool stand alone product
[08:31:52] <Bronz|work> Hello!
[08:32:08] <Aria> Hi
[08:32:24] <Aria> How are you today?
[08:40:58] <Bronz|work> So far so good.
[08:41:17] <Bronz|work> The neck on this T-shirt is too small =/
[08:51:32] <Aria> This guy on YouTube says BF1 should be part of the school curriculum, but at no point during the 10 minutes I've heard him talk mentions that the game isn't authentic, which makes me think he thinks it is
[08:52:27] <Aria> Which is a very bad argument for using it as a teaching aid, because adults who have already learned about that time period the correct way are still taking everything in it at face value and misunderstanding things
[08:57:30] <Bronz|work> epsecially since everyting is built for spectacle.
[08:57:44] <Bronz|work> And WW1 was a very unspectacular war.
[08:57:54] <Aria> For sure
[08:58:04] <Bronz|work> Nobody wants to make a game where you huddle in the trenches for 10 weeks, being miserable.
[08:58:14] <Aria> Actually...
[09:06:41] <Bronz|work> Hmm?
[09:07:02] <Aria> Someone made Verdun
[09:16:41] <Bronz|work> That's true.
[09:16:51] <Bronz|work> Verdun is still a lot more action packed than most of WW1, though
[09:17:09] <Bronz|work> I think it's supposed to be early WW1, when peopel still thought it was a good idea to run charges.
[09:17:12] <Aria> Fair enough
[09:37:24] <Aria> Activision says 35 active CoD players
[09:37:28] <Aria> 35 million
[09:37:44] <Aria> That's so many
[09:46:38] <Bronz|work> Ah, yes, that's more than 35
[09:46:41] <Bronz|work> That's quite a lot.
[09:46:43] -!- Apsup [Apsup!~Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[09:47:14] <Aria> Hi
[09:48:40] <Apsup> heyy
[09:53:03] <Bronz|work> How goes?
[09:53:37] <Apsup> Woke up. Haven't had time to assess the day's quality yet.
[10:04:17] <Aria> Did you see the Google Doodle?
[10:14:16] <Apsup> yes
[10:14:46] <Apsup> it was cute, though felt it would work better on tablet or something. Drawing with mouse worked, but didn't feel optimal.
[10:15:01] <Aria> Oh yeah you should play it with a tablet
[10:15:11] <Apsup> But I don't have tablet
[10:20:39] <Bronz|work> Oh... that last boss is a lot easier than I thought.
[11:34:01] <Apsup> Youtube has been somewhat poop lately. If I have video on one screen while I play on other the video seems to slowdown while audio is normal resulting in increasing desync.
[11:34:11] <Apsup> That's not optimal.
[11:34:17] <Apsup> Or good in any way.
[11:35:09] <Aria> I don't have that issue, but I had another issue where the sound was skipping when I played in more than 1x speed, which I solved by reducing the audio quality in Windows
[11:38:49] <Apsup> I could try if using Chrome would help with that.
[11:40:24] <Bronz|work> Well, it's made by the same company, probably.
[11:40:48] <Bronz|work> y'know, canonical.
[11:41:42] <Apsup> Google is like "you want to give second phone number for your two factor auth" and I'm like "who has two phonenumbers?"
[11:42:37] <Bronz|work> Obviously, you use your mom's.
[11:42:51] <Bronz|work> So that, in emergencies, you can ask her to read out a text.
[11:43:16] <Apsup> Well, if I have lost my phone, I wouldn't have easy access to my mom ether.
[11:43:36] <Bronz|work> Easier access then you would have to nothing, at least.
[11:43:53] <Bronz|work> You can also use my phone number, if you like
[11:44:02] <Apsup> Sure, but I just make sure I dont loose my phone. Everything is better that way.
[11:44:09] <Bronz|work> I use Aria's phone number as my 2nd.
[11:46:38] <Apsup> I wonder if there still isn't acceptable mouse gesture extension for Chrome.
[11:47:46] <Apsup> I don't even ask for much. Switch tabs with wheel and close tabs are basically the only functions I ever use.
[11:51:46] <Bronz|work> Can't you scroll while over the tabs to switch them?
[11:52:01] <Bronz|work> And then for closing, it's pressing on the tab you want with the middle mouse button, right?
[11:52:07] <Apsup> That's not the same.
[11:52:14] <Bronz|work> Or do you not want to move your mouse all the way up there?
[11:53:07] <Bronz|work> I found this for tab switching: https://plus.google.com
[11:53:11] <Bronz|work> It's an autohotkey script.
[11:55:01] <Aria> You should get a mouse with multiple scroll wheels like mine
[11:55:10] <Apsup> Well, found one that seems to work well enough.
[11:55:12] <Aria> And use scroll 2 to switch tabs
[11:56:02] <Aria> (I actually use buttons to switch tabs, I use the second scroll wheel for volume, but Bronz|work uses scroll 2 for tabs and its alright on his computer
[11:56:30] <Aria> Mapping a mouse button for close tab is super nice though
[11:57:02] <Apsup> I draw L. It works well enough.
[12:00:43] <Apsup> I might take back what I said as now this seems to not work and work randomly.
[12:00:54] <Bronz|work> L for cLose?
[12:01:10] <Apsup> No the scroll for tabs.
[12:01:17] <Apsup> Or L for close.
[12:02:13] <Apsup> This seems to randomly decide to just not work on some tabs.
[12:02:46] <Apsup> closing and reopening chrome changes which tabs those are, but it's just random and bullshit and how the fuck is this so hard.
[12:06:49] <Aria> Are there any anime style games with ortho cameras?
[12:07:11] <Aria> I think maybe that new Shining fighting game actually uses an ortho camera
[12:08:47] <Apsup> and now Windows seems to have hard time wanting to make Chrome the default browser.

[12:15:06] <Aria> This guy modeled the shadow under this characters neck
[12:22:48] <Bronz|work> Surely you mean textured?
[12:28:23] <Aria> No, its a 3D blob
[12:41:45] <Bronz|work> o_O
[12:58:56] <Bronz|work> The cafeteria is running on halloween mode.
[12:59:09] <Bronz|work> Someone said that it was open anyway, so nobody wanted to order pizza anymore =(
[12:59:15] <Aria> Do they take your money but not give you money in return?
[12:59:16] <Bronz|work> So now I'm eating sad food.
[12:59:26] <Aria> That sucks
[13:00:02] <Bronz|work> Eh, this food isn't too bad.
[13:00:49] <Bronz|work> Still, it's no pizza
[13:32:05] <Bronz|work> What do I type into Spotify to get DDR style music?
[13:32:34] <Aria> DDR?
[13:32:36] <Aria> Eurobeat?
[13:34:29] <Aria> http://www.ddrfreak.com
[13:35:02] <Bronz|work> They have a playlist called "DDR - Dance Dance Revolution"
[13:35:18] <Aria> That'll do
[13:35:19] <Bronz|work> First song: "Hey Mamma - The Black eyed Peas"
[13:35:29] <Aria> That's not... correct
[13:35:29] <Bronz|work> Yeah but that's not what I wanted!
[13:35:37] <Aria> Maybe DDR in America had weird music
[13:36:29] <Bronz|work> Now it's "The Reflex - Duran Duran"
[13:36:43] <Bronz|work> Maybe the playlist creator is trying to pull a fast one on me?
[13:37:19] <Aria> Try eurodance?
[13:37:44] <Bronz|work> Hey Mamma was in DDR X Arcace, apperantly
[13:38:31] <Bronz|work> Ah, much better.
[13:38:32] <Bronz|work> https://www.youtube.com
[13:39:03] <Aria> Can you not look up a specific song and see what playlists its in?
[13:39:15] <Aria> Look up Nori Nori Nori or Back on the Rocks or something
[13:40:34] <Bronz|work> Neither song is in there.
[13:40:45] <Bronz|work> Maybe that's the issue, DDR songs are just not on Spotify.
[13:40:59] <Bronz|work> So only the most mainstream/crapiest songs are in there.
[13:41:06] <Aria> I downloaded a mesh off the internet. Its a lady with a frilly dress. The bit in front of her legs is see through thin cloth kind of thing. Except he didn't model legs. You can clearly see where her knees end through her skirt.
[13:41:28] <Bronz|work> Ah, well, if you look at her from just the right angle, it's fine.
[13:41:37] <Bronz|work> Also, this is a cool helicopter: https://www.reddit.com
[13:41:59] <Aria> I mean, I just wanted the hair, so from the back I guess is the ideal angle
[13:42:44] <Aria> Nope! You can see the end of her legs from the back too
[13:43:30] <Aria> So this hair is done entirely with curves
[13:44:06] <Aria> Same way I did the horns with a bevel and taper object. Seems to work pretty well. Will try that on Lucifer
[13:45:03] <Aria> Ok it seems to have an artifact in that the closer to the center of my mesh I go, the weirder each strand gets
[13:45:10] <Bronz|work> ...
[13:45:14] <Bronz|work> =P
[13:45:19] <Aria> But I can probably work around that by having a seperate set of curves for the middles
[13:47:04] <Bronz|work> That seems... not ideal
[13:47:17] <Bronz|work> Also, isn't this the same method as the anime hair tutorial you'd already seen?
[13:47:29] <Aria> Well sorta
[13:48:03] <Aria> That method is used to make primitives, then you position the primitives
[13:48:09] <Aria> Here every strand is bespoke
[13:50:55] <Bronz|work> Ah, I see.
[13:50:57] <Bronz|work> Bespoke hairs
[13:51:26] <Bronz|work> We should order some Tesco, we're low on foodstuff
[13:56:14] <Aria> Doing seperate bangs vs back of hair helps a lot
[14:01:42] <Bronz|work> I'm curious what you're doing and how it's looking.
[14:02:19] <Aria> http://imgur.com
[14:02:38] <Aria> Apsup, will you also give feedback?
[14:02:53] <Aria> The bottom one, the top two are from yesterday, ignore those
[14:02:54] <Bronz|work> Ah, ok, that's pretty good. It's hard to judge though, without shadows.
[14:03:28] <Apsup> It is an improvement over the old ones, sure, but what Bronz said.
[14:03:50] <Apsup> It's hard to assess the proper shapes on that.
[14:04:02] <Apsup> Almost looks like you just drew the hair on in paint.
[14:04:16] <Aria> Um... refresh, I added shadows
[14:06:24] <Apsup> It's fine.
[14:06:33] <Aria> But not good?
[14:06:48] <Aria> I'm currently cleaning it up so the head is more round
[14:09:08] <Aria> I wish I had the particle comb, which is very surprising, because the particle comb is garbage.
[14:09:22] <Bronz|work> The bangs are not great, because they're all equal length
[14:09:27] <Bronz|work> Looks like a bowl cut.
[14:10:04] <Aria> I think I need to do curly hair..
[14:10:06] <Bronz|work> You'll want long hairs that go down the side, I think.
[14:10:11] <Bronz|work> Try this: http://s7.favim.com
[14:10:16] <Aria> Though no clue how with panes
[14:10:30] <Bronz|work> This isn't super high poly, is it?
[14:10:58] <Aria> Well, there is a subdivide modifier, but no, its panes that are low enough poly to where I can easily work with them
[14:11:09] <Aria> Or that was the plan, I might have ~twice that amount
[14:23:26] <Bronz|work> Still though, I think this so far has been your best attempt, and I think it has a lot of potential.
[15:10:23] <Bronz|work> I got an email from apple, aria.
[15:10:26] <Bronz|work> Are you responsible for that?
[15:22:00] <Aria> Yes
[15:22:07] <Aria> I tried to get skype on my phone
[15:22:17] <Bronz|work> Ah, ok.
[15:22:24] <Bronz|work> I was slightly worried for a minute.
[15:22:31] <Aria> Sorry
[15:24:07] <Bronz|work> 's ok =)
