Here's a cool video on Amiga sampling:
I met cTrix one time at a chipmusic festival and he was a real nice guy. One of those people who are just really encouraging of new people in a scene. His YT channel is pretty cool too.

I spent the past days with playing #hnefatafl on aagenielson.dk . I was a bit afraid that the site could be a nazi shithole because nazis simply throw their dirt on everything connected to the viking age. But it turned out to be a really friendly and welcoming community. The people there simply seem to be happy about every new person hat is interestd in the game.
Updated our old #PICO8 palette colors-sorted-by-brightness infographic by making a default-palette-only version. First image is the default palette one; second is the default-plus-extended palettes one.
The post we made about the cart we wrote to generate this data - https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=35881 - includes a text file https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/files/40166/pico-8%20extended%20palette%20with%20log%20luminance.txt for people who want the data in a more convenient form.
I 100% agree that fedi's privacy and security measures are basically non-existant and that that massively sucks
But it's a decentralized social network and was never meant to be a place where you can safely admit personal things to a select few people, or talk about all the crimes you commit
Twitter isn't secure
Discord isn't secure
Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, etc etc. Are all not secure.
And fedi is no different from this
In fact, with decentralization, whose entire premise is "everyone has an independent copy of the data so it doesn't get lost", that's... inevitable, if not deliberate
Even if follower only posts were 1000% secure
Do you trust your admins? Do you trust your followers? Do you trust yourself to be able to flawlessly judge who you can share this information with?

An open letter to game journalists: #metoo, fighting with surviving abusive reporting, and the fallout of not caring...
I wrote about the consequences, and shared absolutely everything...and the stuff here places me at risk so please read it.
meta, instance block, followbot
Been looking into this followbot account.
If you go to the actually instance it's using to host its big federated timeline it's mostly awful gab accounts, so I'm blocking it.
Was thinking I should leave it up to people to use #nobot as they need, but turns out--not surprisingly--search.fedi.app is skeevy as fuck.
Streamers can be so annoying about microphones.
“Never use a USB microphone! You really need an XLR microphone with a high resolution audio interface!”
Right… because 24-bit LPCM samples taken at a rate of 192 kHz is going to sound any better in quality from 16-bit LPCM samples taken at a rate of 48 kHz when it’s been downsampled to 16-bit @ 44.1 kHz and encoded to 128 kbit/s AAC to comply with DASH standards for streaming. 👀
Besides that, maintaining signals as analog for longer before sending them through your audio interface just allows for more noise to enter the signal before digitization. Since you aren’t actually getting the benefit of increased resolution, signal clarity is far more important.
Cheaper USB microphones will always sound better with a similar-quality condenser than any audiophile XLR setup as long as you are meeting or exceeding 16-bit samples taken at a rate of 44.1 kHz because they digitize the signal as soon as possible and thereby minimize the amount of noise introduced.
Oh awesome - we've been thinking for ages that it would be really really helpful to have, like, a #PICO8 cart which lets you move music patterns and sound effects around, and apparently this now exists!
Checking the author's Twitter - @firstname.lastname@example.org - they also made a tool a while ago for rearranging sprites: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=35255

To celebrate Flotilla's 10th birthday, Brendon Chung (Blendo Games) has released its source code.
Flotilla provided a bunch of inspiration for #HiveTime. I'm looking forward to digging in and learning its guts :)
One week left for submissions, and there is definitely space for you.
I can also give a couple more details that I don’t think I have announced before. The size of the zine will be 5.5x8 inches, and in full color, for the art and photo contributions.
Really looking forward to what comes in at the end.
i read something today which i thought grounded n-dimensional rotations in a common framework really nicely.
it frames a rotation as a transformation, but one of a class which preserve distance and angle.
Game Making Tools is a few things, but mostly a wiki for amateur game/vidcon makerers.
1/2 admin accounts, handles most of the adminy announcement stuff :)
Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
Please read the rules before signing-up :)
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
