🎮 Book Update: Chapter 3 is done, including live in-browser emulator (jsnes)! Very excited to use this infrastructure going forward. This chapter is about setting up and testing your development environment, if you try it out please let me know how it went!
More PS1 Classic that would be nice to see if it had more than 20 games:
Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (and hey, why not the English translation of Innocent Sin while we're at it?)
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
PlayStation Classic! They've only announced 5 of the 20 games on it; what other PS1 games would be must-haves for you?
Here's my list:
I.Q. - Intelligent Qube
Final Fantasy VIII
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy Tactics
Metal Gear Solid
Parasite Eve (any)
Tecmo's Deception (any)
Resident Evil II
PaRappa the Rapper
Threads of Fate
Misadventures of Tron Bonne
Twisted Metal (any)

While we're talking FOSS cultural patterns, one we should work to stamp out forever is "It's hard to use, which I like because it keeps people out". That attitude is born partly of Linus' mentality all these years and it has to go. The leftist imperative for free software is that *nobody* deserves to have their computing experience controlled by corporations.
I love that the default Emacs scratch buffer text got into Mario Golf (GBC) somehow. I wonder if this was a mis-copy-and-paste from a developer, or if it was another case of a compiler taking random memory contents and using them for padding in the ROM...
Death is all around us. I am not upset by this.

I'm gonna keep posting this until one of you fucking boosts it
🎮 Book progress: Chapter 3 nearly done - in which we install all of the tools and build a "Hello World" program.
TODO: integrate jsnes to run the code live in the browser; add sidenotes and images
re: Chicago hotel workers strike - by "citywide" they mean "downtown"; there are a ton of hotels that are not part of this
so even if, hypothetically, giants like apple and samsung were to push as far as they could toward sustainability, how far could they actually go? at the end of that particular road, what would impact actually look like?
and the elephant in the room is that a lot of the resources in a device such as a phone simply can't be recycled. for instance you have probably heard of coltan- most of the coltan in smartphones is not reclaimed, because it exists in minute pieces surrounded by other materials.
the iphone X was supposedly something of a step forward for apple in terms of prioritizing sustainability. however the only solid info i've seen is rather flimsy: 55% of packaging is recycled, and the steel frame of the phone is recyclable. https://www.cnet.com/news/apple-iphone-x-environmental-report/
Hi! I hope Game Making Social is a cosey, 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 players most welcome! Unless you're a jerk!!
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 :)
Oi there's also a forum at forums.gamemaking.social.
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
