quick curtain with blender's cloth sewing, really easy to set up it's just edges with no faces

Unfortunate Plaintext Distro Change of Plans:

Short notice, but since my partner who I live with has tested positive for COVID, and since we've mostly been in the same places doing the same things for the past week, I decided it's probably wise to act as if I'm potentially contagious as well for the next few days. Unfortunately this means I don't feel great about the prospect of sitting in a hall full of people on Sunday, and have called off the in-person table at GZF.

HOWEVER! I will be dropping off a selection of our new zines to be available at the communal zine table over both days of the festival tomorrow, AND I have re-enabled the online shop on the website for the month of July. Hopefully this will help get most of the latest print order out there, since this stuff is really cool and it's sad for me to think of them languishing in a box in my apartment for months and months before anyone can read them.

Thank you!!

this post also includes a ton of other links to beautiful and unique tools. go try them!

does anyone know of any FOSS tools for working with files on playstation game discs? I want to revisit a long lost project I did back in high school where I extracted pre-rendered background images from a JRPG and reconstructed the scenes.

are there any games out there that run at 24fps to look more like film? bonus points if animation is done on 2s or 3s

Request for input from blind programmers 

Saw a tweet saying that tabs work better than spaces when you're using a braille display

Seems logical, but this information doesn't seem to be coming from a blind person, so I thought I'd check

Which form of #Python indentation is more accessible to you?

This game jam that I thought might of interest to some merveilles folks.

“Death and the Internet Game Jam is for creating physical games or video games featuring, about or based around dead things on the Internet. This jam came about as an idea to commemorate the end of Internet Explorer which was officially retired on June 15, 2022. As the Internet progresses, the memories we keep on it can disappear at any moment unless we make an effort to preserve them.”


I've been looking for a wiki or other database with good info on lots of videogame interface hardware (controllers, etc.), but I haven't been able to find anything better than Wikipedia. Surely I'm missing something? I feel like I must've read something like this a million times and covidbrain is blocking my memory?? Do I have to make this???

Please boost for reach. So, anyone that is working on FOSS projects like web apps, sites, Linux apps, desktop environments, or other user interfaces, please let me know if you want them tested for accessibility. I can do both CLI, web, and GUI testing, and app testing on Android. I'm running Debian (on a ChromeBook but that's not too important), so just give me the name of the package, or the URL of the site or app. I can also do Flatpak!

Hi @sunny_starshine and @indigo welcome to gamemaking.social

There's a bit of a guide on our wiki you mind find useful to help get you rolling, and some links to more complete guides at the bottom:


(The Never Ending Fedi Guide is the most recent: rooting.garden/the-never-endin)

Feel free to @ me with any questions you have :smw_moon:

Melbourne Queer Games Festival 2022 submissions are open. Entry's free. You can be from anywhere.


(edit to remove https... that link doesn't work for some reason)

Cool to see Sharkie's Game Controllers posting videos again.


Every now and then I stumble upon it researching peripherals, and I like the old vids where he's just a little tacka with an enviable controller collection.

started a page for racing games with track editors the other day. i think it'd be good to have more lists like this. it's helped me ckear my bookmarks of some things that'd prob never end up with their own pages.


Does anyone know a browser-based paint program that'll let you hold shift or something when you resize a selection to force it to preserve the aspect ratio? Neither paintz.app/ nor jspaint.app/ will, as far as I can tell. paint.js.org/ doesn't seem to let you make a selection at all

We're happy to announce that we just started to work on three new interdependent online resources: the Damaged Earth Catalog, the Permacomputing wiki, and the permacomputing workshop series!


Damaged Earth Catalog

A growing online catalog of the different terms in circulation, used by communities of practice, in relation to computing and network infrastructure informed by ecological ethics, degrowth, resilience, repair, and minimalism. Currently developed by @l03s as part of her PhD research.



Permacomputing wiki

A new wiki about permacomputing that aims to expose its principles, present and discuss the concepts and jargon required to engage with permacomputing, and maintain a repository of related projects. Currently facilitated by @viznut and @320x200 open for contributors!



Permacomputing in the Arts

A workshop series that will be developed throughout end-2022 and 2023 as an onboarding course for permacomputing practices in art an design. The workshops will be made available as an Open Educational Resource. Developed by @320x200 as part of a postdoc research on the topic.

My big article is done!

What streamers should I be watching to see odd things done with life sim games and adjacent?

ok i've got a set layout: mnsoleart.neocities.org/3d-art

but i'm having trouble with the width of the iframes/embeds, especially the sketchfab ones.

originally these are 800px in width and height. i need to set a max-width property so that it doesn't go beyond the screen width in smaller screens. but if i set a max width rather than a set width, the embeds on PC look squashed/rectangular/not 800px in width and height.

do y'all see anything weird in my code? :_
