yes, under the qualification that they're in the os9 shapes patcher that comes as part of the demo.

people have asked about some of the stuff I've done in various other threads, so I figured I'd throw them together in an archive before I leave.

like I said, I don't really care. hoth died in utero and if people want to salvage stuff from the demo that's perfectly fine by me. better than letting it go to waste.

har.

seriously though, it's not a bad idea to put everything in one thread, and honestly this is something I should've thought of myself some time ago. it's a moot point now though, there isn't a lot of point in me posting on the forums anymore.

to satisfy your own curiosity is selfish. STOP IT. ok look, maybe this isn't obvious to you, but I *do* in fact attempt to do stuff and release it. the problem is that basically every idea I've had in like the last month has been cockblocked by some stupid trivial snag. I do a lot of stuff that I d...

Do we have to do this every couple days when you have a new idea? I guess I have trouble understanding the "state of the industry" as it were. there's a lot you can do, but there's also a lot of totally arbitrary restrictions, and I'm not seeing a rhyme or reason to it. I feel like I have to mainta...

ok, I was actually expecting the answer to this to be 'yes'....
why can you do it for maps but not plugins? what's the technical limitation?

also: I totally posted this in the wrong forum, sorry.

..or does it only work when merged into a map?

and I mean an actual shapes patch here, with sequences and keyframe sounds and stuff, not just an opengl bitmap substitution.

somehow a ZLL crept into the edge of one of the pillars in front of the control room, which is weird because I'm very careful about keeping track of those so I'm kinda necro posting here, but I've since figured out that this is a bug in weland so I figure it's worth commenting on it. if you have sn...

I hope you're not paying an ISP for that! Stealing a neighbor's wireless maybe? both, effectively. my building complex doesn't allow people to install their own connections, we have to buy into a WLAN thing they have set up. which would be great if it worked half the time. signal reception at this ...

I found causes for both the momentary pause and the co-op freeze after level change/resume from save problems, and fixed them in 0.23.3 and 1.0 beta 4. did you finally find it? I remember you found the lag/jitter bug, but that didn't solve all of it on our end. I can't remember if we we're still pl...

I think maybe these conversations would be more efficient if you joined #alephone on freenode sometime, quartz. my current net connection is slow and incredibly flaky, so any form of live anything (chat/games/video/etc) doesn't work too well a lot of nights. chats in particular end up just being pa...

Thought that was fixed? we never came up with anything conclusive. you were running out of ideas and your last suggestion was to edit my prefs and disable the bandwidth reduction feature. I don't think I got around to testing that, it was right around the time my friend and I finished m2 and he has...

the "star networking protocol doesn't work on any of the six machines and we have to use ring if we want a game that doesn't lurch or die in 10 minutes" thing.

They don't actually affect the behavior of that code :) I'm not great with the C family, but why not? does "player->suit_oxygen" retrieve the max value instead of the current value or something? the only other thing I can think of is that the division produces a float instead of an int, but I don't...

would it be easy to expose that and let people type in a raw tick value or something? after doing more testing, my scuba patch may be in trouble.

Many thanks to you for submitting a documentation patch to clear it up. Oh wait, you didn't. sorry, the mml is like 3 lines I figured it would be obvious what was going on. in the "sounds" tag, the description for the "breath" attribute says it plays when you're underwater. it neglects to mention t...
