Freespace Open on ScholarsPlay For Real This Time
Hey there HLP,

After misfiring horribly with my horrible instruction writing skills last week the problems have been solved!

This week (Veterans' Day in the US) ScholarsPlay will in fact be streaming Freespace Open (likely Silent Threat: Reborn specifically). Please tune in Friday (11/10/2017) at 4:30pm Pacific Time for 2 hours of, as we say, the bloopers of criticism. You can sort of think of this as a preview for whenever I get around to ST:R on my own much more heavily edited analysis, though don't hold me to that since I'll be sharing with two other people and who knows where our conversation will lead.

Stream is here:
https://www.twitch.tv/scholarsplay

If you do want to join in chat, please be respectful!

Woot!

Not sure I will actually be able to make it at that time, but I look forward to hearing about it later. :)

I'll try to be there, but I won't make any promises -- this is really late at night for me.

I've got the window open right now; see you in 15 minutes.
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Codethulhu GitHub wgah'nagl fhtagn.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

When you gaze long into BMPMAN, BMPMAN also gazes into you.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

<MageKing17> It was all working perfectly until I actually tried it on an actual mission.

<IronWorks> I am useful for FSO stuff again. This is a red-letter day!

<MageKing17> TIL the entire homing code is held up by shoestrings and duct tape, basically.

All right, Twitch finally let me sign up, so I'm on.  Looks good. :yes:

Re: Freespace Open on ScholarsPlay For Real This Time
Thank you all so much for tuning in! You guys helped make that stream as special as it was! Hopefully next quarter I'll get either Wings of Dawn or Diaspora on there to show of the standalone stuff. Hopefully as long as I'm a part of ScholarsPlay I can finesse one FSO project on per quarter.

Again you all are fantastic and the support you've all given for this community and game are second to none! See you out there!

I had family obligations yesterday, but I'll be sure to check out the stream archive if it's up. :)
