The Fourier series video out!

In this animation, each vector rotates at a constant integer frequency. They’re added together, tip to tail. The only control you have is the starting position of each, and from that alone, they’ll draw almost anything.

Le miracle du Saint Ruissellement n’a jamais été aussi proche. [twitter.com]

I’m watching Detroit: Become Human on YouTube (since it’s coming to PSN+ anyway) and for a studio so obsessed with performance capture it’s amazing how horribly their tech fails on anyone who isn’t a doll-faced thirty-year-old.

Ninety minutes in, Detroit doesn’t seem nearly as bad as Cage’s previous two games and I think I might want to play it 😱

And, who knows, playing a branching narrative could motivate me to get back to my interactive fiction project(s).

The buzz I’ve seen on Eastshade was mostly “a walking simulator with painting” but that doesn’t do it justice at all. They clearly set out to do an indie-sized Elder Scrolls-without-combat and I think they very much achieve that. Lovely world with unexpectedly well-written quests and dialogue.

The voice acting is pretty much the only part that’s hit-and-miss, but that’s just video games for you.

@MarguerinLDN:

On devrait se méfier de ce genre de discours. Plutôt que de dire que les “LGBT” ont “de tout temps” existé, on ferait mieux de rappeler que c’est bien le système homo/hétéro, à travers lequel nous vivons notre “sexualité”, qui n’a pas toujours existé. Son emprise est récente. [twitter.com]

@MarguerinLDN:

Ceux qui croient en l’existence d’une minorité homosexuelle depuis la nuit des temps tentent surtout de se persuader que l’Ordre Hétérosexuel existera pour toujours, ce qui est un piège tendu à celleux pour qui l’horizon politique est d’abolir la domination patriarcale.

Google’s web app to learn morse code is excellent

Works fine on desktop but refuses to run on mobile without GBoard, even if you request the desktop version. Because obviously the point is to get you on GBoard… which should make you wary of using GBoard.

@macguru17:

This year’s betas are a true support nightmare.

10% of our users on these already, and many many are seeing sync outages, some even data loss.

It’s careless of Apple to release such broken OSes to the masses. [twitter.com]

@chockenberry:

Here’s something simple that Apple could do to focus adoption on people who really need it: remove some popular Emoji in the beta. It would have minimal impact on testing, but normal folks would say “no way!”

They use Emoji to drive adoption: they could use it to throttle, too.

@chockenberry:

Apple talks a lot about services being the future of the company, but then they pull shit like this and it makes me wonder if they have any clue that the most important part of a data service is protecting its contents.

I started playing Torn and closed it in horror after two minutes. Who on earth thought it was a good idea to record an inner monologue for a first-person VR experience? That stuff’s already immersion-breaking enough in flat-screen games — it’s outright sabotage in VR.

Meanwhile, the free The Scream experience has some very successfully creepy moments (that don’t really seem to have that much to do with the painting, but does it matter?).

I also got Fujii and Garden of the Sea during the Steam sale even though I didn’t think they were for me, and—well, I was right, but I won’t blame them for that.

Holy shit Thrill of the Fight is intense and I think I might be into boxing now.

A single Thrill of the Fight game and I now understand why they already made such a big deal of Rocky Balboa being too old to fight in 1985, even though he was obviously fit as hell. Reflexes, man 👴🏻

I thought the Switch Lite would still have video-out, but that was silly — of course they need a reason for the $300 model to keep existing. Not that I intended to ever plug it into my TV when I buy one.

Sudden realization while discussing the Nintendo Switch Lite: what if an Ive-less Apple suddenly found itself capable of creating an iPod dedicated to games? As in, with first-party detachable — or even, gasp, integrated! — buttons and sticks?

Also a Viva Piñata VR would be so good.

Je suis sorti de chez moi au bon moment, à la minute près, pour tomber sur LE truc qui rend jaloux tous les autres dictateurs 🙌︎

C’est marrant, il y a beau y avoir un tout petit cockpit indicateur de l’échelle, je n’imagine jamais ça aussi gros, un avion de chasse.

I think my favorite part of Steam Labs is actually the “automatic show.” I’d love to be able to view my personalized Steam Store home page in the four-way split-screen format at the beginning of the video. (On-demand, when I feel like it, not as a permanent replacement.)

12 juillet

Now that I’ve got enough space in my living-room I finally got around to try Wreckfest with a steering wheel. Force feedback seems pretty good; shame that the cockpit and hood views are almost useless for the lack of rear-view mirrors.

On the other hand I didn’t expect Mudrunner would be much better with a steering wheel, but exploring a hilltop in an F150 with each bump coming through force feedback feels amazing.

Buying a 3D printer was a bad idea and getting a cheap dual-filament model was the worst idea. I could have saved money and so much time and energy going to a makerspace instead.

Unclogging a regular 3D printer: unscrew the nozzle and scrape the inside of the tube.

Unclogging my stupid dual-extruder printer: haha nope — I mean, you could fill it with acetone then wait a few months to make sure there isn’t any left when you plug it back in, good luck!

Lately the Pokemon Go gym accessible from my couch is never the right color and that’s sucking 80% of the fun out. What a crazy way to design a game.

At WWDC Apple’s presenters said they would not prevent you from running software you wanted to run on your Mac, but these interface choices are disaffecting. It feels like my Mac is fighting my choices every step of the way, and there’s not even a button to turn it all off.

It’s hard to make a movie about Greek mythology without problematic gender politics, and at least Zeus doesn’t rape anyone in this version, but what a weird choice to make a satyr one of the main characters in a Disney animated movie.

It’s too hot to work so I’m catching up with WWDC sessions, and am I naive to think SF Symbols is insanely over-engineered? You wouldn’t need a single line of code if the symbols were a font, with a bit of hidden OS magic for localization.
