[08:20:31] <Bronz|work> Good morning.
[08:20:41] <AriaDesu> Hello!
[08:22:27] <AriaDesu> How's your day?
[08:22:49] <AriaDesu> Was there a chance of the bus tipping over?
[08:26:35] <Bronz|work> It kind of felt like it, but it doesn't seem so.
[08:33:34] <AriaDesu> Remember how I thought travelable distance meant one generation? Yeah apparently that means 100 generations
[08:39:26] <Bronz|work> Oh, to those planets
[08:39:33] <Bronz|work> Well... 100 generations is a lot of generations.
[08:39:43] <Bronz|work> That's like, 2000 years or more!
[08:41:01] <Bronz|work> Did you see today's google doodle?
[08:41:12] <AriaDesu> Yeah
[08:56:10] <AriaDesu> This rhythm game has "mild blood"?
[08:57:53] <Bronz|work> Is that the dancing turn based stragety game?
[08:58:01] <Bronz|work> With the weird animation?
[08:58:07] <AriaDesu> Superbeat: Xonic
[08:58:41] <AriaDesu> Its for the Vita. Radial note highway, press the buttons
[09:01:24] <AriaDesu> Who uses a USB keyboard with an ultrabook?
[09:07:04] <Bronz|work> Ultrabook so it's easy to carry from place to place
[09:07:18] <Bronz|work> Keyboard at your desk where you use it somewhat regularly, because it's much better than the tiny one on the PC itself
[09:07:36] <AriaDesu> Yeah but then you're further from your tiny screen
[09:08:02] <Bronz|work> You could place the screen higher up, and/or use a seperate screen.
[09:41:22] <AriaDesu> So I'm watching the 6th Konami Arcade Championship, and the game is just way too fast to react to. Are all of these games just played entirely by muscle memory?
[09:41:48] <AriaDesu> For context, this guy has now hit 950 notes in a row
[09:41:58] <AriaDesu> Okay the song stopped
[09:42:07] <AriaDesu> I was gonna wait a few seconds and say how many more he got
[09:42:29] <AriaDesu> But alright, it was like a 3 minute song and had about 1020 notes
[09:42:59] <AriaDesu> (that he hit in a row, possibly he lost his streak at some point. The other guy only had 200 combo at the end)
[09:43:24] <Bronz|work> That's a lot of notes.
[09:43:38] <Bronz|work> Something something popular tumbler post...
[09:44:41] <AriaDesu> OKay so 80
[09:44:53] <AriaDesu> 180
[09:45:26] <AriaDesu> 400
[09:45:39] <AriaDesu> 500
[09:45:51] <AriaDesu> Like, its way too fast to see the notes coming up
[09:58:37] <AriaDesu> Street Fighter 2 on Switch has a first person rail shooter where you are Ryu shooting fireballs
[10:00:11] <Bronz|work> ...
[10:00:15] <Bronz|work> Oh?
[10:02:17] <AriaDesu> No that's all I know
[10:03:00] <Bronz|work> That sounds really weird.
[10:06:46] <AriaDesu> The Peach model in Mario Party 2 is significantly better than the other characters
[10:08:44] <Bronz|work> Well, she has more fine details on her...
[10:12:26] <Bronz|work> But I'm not sure if I would say she's better.
[10:25:49] -!- Apsup [Apsup!Apsup@hide-C3A41BC5.kortex.jyu.fi] has joined #geeknights
[10:28:22] <Apsup> Helloo
[10:35:41] <AriaDesu> Hi
[10:45:11] <Bronz|work> Hia Apsup.
[12:57:52] <AriaDesu> Okay so I did some more work
[12:57:56] <AriaDesu> And reordered those scenes
[12:58:08] <AriaDesu> And dubbed over Anakin's dialog so it works with the new order
[12:58:22] <AriaDesu> And I think this works better!
[12:59:01] <AriaDesu> I would actually have to watch it in its entirety to judge pacing, but it's probably better now
[13:12:11] <AriaDesu> Have you seen this game Birthdays The Beginning?
[13:12:16] <AriaDesu> Looks cool
[13:14:42] <AriaDesu> https://twitter.com
[13:29:36] <AriaDesu> GeekNights did an episode on one of those Japanese porn shows
[13:29:44] <AriaDesu> "Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid"
[13:52:36] <Bronz|work> I want a real dragon
[13:52:39] <Bronz|work> Not some loli!
[13:53:31] <AriaDesu> I don't feel I misrepresented the show.
[13:54:30] <Bronz|work> Nah, that's fair
[13:54:42] <Bronz|work> But what I want and reality are at odds sometimes
[14:13:41] <Apsup> I've watched of what's out on that japanese porn show, also listened the geeknights episode.
[14:14:07] <AriaDesu> Is it good?
[14:14:12] -!- AriaDesu [AriaDesu!Aria@hide-57D02771.agg2.bdt.bdt-fng.eircom.net] has parted #geeknights
[14:14:15] <Aria> Also hi
[14:14:17] <Apsup> It's fine.
[14:14:53] <Apsup> Interviews with monster girls is better show about non-human girls this season. Though the ones in the interviews are actually just humans, but whateves.
[14:17:34] <Aria> What's the best show for intense glaring and convoluted plotting at sports or debates?
[14:17:45] <Apsup> dunno.
[14:18:00] <Aria> Are you familiar with subtitle formats? What format doesn't have line numbers?
[14:18:12] <Aria> My timings are correct, but the line numbers are wrong, so they're not displaying
[14:18:39] <Bronz|work> Surely, there's a "Fix line numbers for me" thing?
[14:18:51] <Aria> I can't find it...
[14:24:22] <Aria> Okay it did
[14:35:02] <Bronz|work> Hurray!
[14:35:23] <Bronz|work> So apperantly, the storm we had last night is called Doris.
[14:35:33] <Aria> We had a storm?
[14:35:49] <Bronz|work> It wasn't too bad in our neighbourhoood
[14:35:57] <Bronz|work> But that's why the door was thumping
[14:37:51] <Aria> I see
[14:50:51] <Aria> So percentage, how likely is it I'll be allowed to upload to YouTube this time?
[14:51:18] <Apsup> I don't want to disappoint you, but the number is small.
[14:52:11] <Aria> Do you have the context? Last time I tried, which I think was exactly 7 days ago, it said I stole their credits sequence. So that's at the very end of the file
[14:52:33] <Aria> Obviously, it could complain about a bit at random, but there's a chance that it complains about the first bit it finds
[14:52:37] <Apsup> Their algorithm might not work through the thing in order.
[14:52:47] <Aria> For sure
[14:53:02] <Apsup> It could go through it build a list and then complain about what's on top when it reaches the end.
[14:53:41] <Aria> Personally, I'm feeling like I have a good chance. Like 60% likely it'll get through
[15:05:07] <Bronz|work> I'm giving it a 40%
[15:05:20] <Bronz|work> Also, did you encode it to be a fairly small, crappy resolution file to test?
[15:05:28] <Bronz|work> So you don't have to wait for the 12 hour upload?
[15:05:38] <Apsup> 10% at max to go through at all. and 0.5% for it to last there more than a week.
[15:06:01] <Aria> It's not massive, 12GB
[15:53:58] <Aria> Man fuck articles
[15:54:33] <Bronz|work> I know, right?
[15:54:39] <Bronz|work> Get rid of them A's and The's
[15:54:42] <Aria> "you’ll have heard the soft, melancholy chill of his voice, but the man behind the silent assassin is a real gentleman, and had a lot of great stories to tell.
[15:54:42] <Aria> After talking about our kids (I thought I had my handful with two daughters, but three?!) for short while, I wanted to start at the beginning. "
[15:55:19] <Aria> "David’s favourite film is probably one of mine, and we talked about how it has been a massive inspiration of his."
[15:55:54] <Aria> Just in the opening paragraphs, there are several references to good interview stuff, without the audience actually getting to experience the interview
[15:56:05] <Aria> You can't do that in video. Video is far superior for interviews
[16:05:30] <Aria> 47's face looks a lot like his actor
[16:05:56] <Aria> 47 is much younger, but facial features match
[16:06:14] <Bronz|work> I mean, that makes sense
[16:06:29] <Bronz|work> Ugh, I can't wait for my stupid co-workers to leave so I can go back to goofing off!
[16:06:54] <Aria> The guy they got to play the movie was terrible
[16:07:13] <Aria> They should've just had the actual guy. He does live action too
[16:08:36] <Aria> You say "that makes sense", but in the past he didn't look anything like the actor, and they're not doing motion capture so having the faces match doesn't have any production benefits
[16:09:55] <Bronz|work> Oh, the VOICE actor.
[16:10:11] <Bronz|work> I thought, when you said actor, you meant the motion captor actor.
[16:10:35] <Aria> Are we playing the same HITMAN?
[16:10:41] <Aria> What motion capture? =P
[16:11:01] <Aria> They barely move their lips
[16:11:26] <Aria> I guess the pre rendered cutscenes probably use motion capture
[16:12:41] <Bronz|work> I didn't think about it very hard.
[16:12:56] <Bronz|work> Also, in my mind, there's no voice actor for 47, it's just whichever dev has the deepest voice
[16:13:22] <Aria> =P
[16:34:00] <Aria> I'm like an old man. My back hurts from bending over for 10 minutes
[16:34:50] <Bronz|work> Yeah...
[16:41:57] <Apsup> Aria, motion capture's main point is not mouth movement.
[16:42:00] <Apsup> It's body movemenbt.
[16:42:07] <Apsup> And they definitely move their bodies in that game.
[16:42:22] <Aria> Sure, but you don't need face trackers for body movement
[16:42:34] <Aria> And you don't need the guy who does the voice to do the body movement
[16:43:01] <Aria> But with the face, if you want to get the lip sync correct, and the expressing to happen at a natural timing, it makes sense to record that stuff off of the actors face as he says his lines
[16:43:29] <Aria> Though I have a feeling all the body movement in that game is keyed too
[16:59:19] <Aria> This VR arcade skiing game looks pretty great
[16:59:41] <Aria> It has skiis that you stand on and you feel bumps and stuff
