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!
* z64555 erases "Thursday" and rewrites it in red ink

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

Yeah I'm back in with a minimum pledge, because I wanted to check out 3.0 for myself.

Yes I regretted it shortly after, but I'm not gonna do the refund dance again over a trivial sum.


And yeah I'm ashamed ....

My name is Mike and last week I pledged again. Now clean for 8 days and counting!  :lol:

Who wants to speak up next?

Well originally, I was looking at Battlefront 2, then I read the articles about that ...  and theeeeen I thought, ah well, before I am foolish and buy THAT i can as well double down on being foolish for nostalgia's sake.

P.S. I found Nostalgia is not all what it's cracked up to be, meh. :/

 
Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
In the future, if you have a pile of money that you just have to get rid of with another decision as foolish as "Battlefront 2 or Star Citizen," I can take that money off your hands.  It's really no trouble.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I'm certainly not about to put any new money into the project, but at the same time I see no reason to refund the $20 I've spent. Not worth the trouble, and I'll be able to play whatever does ultimately emerge.

Psstt... i heard about an older game called Freespace 2. It is a good christmas present for all your family and friends  :D
Female FS2 pilot since 1999.

German Translations created by me:
Between the Ashes: Slaves of Chaos, FreeSpace Port, The Destiny of Peace, Silent Threat: Reborn, Awakenings (in development),

Other projects:
FSPort Mission Upgrade, Out of the Shadow: Nova Safiya Edition (Remake of the Out of the Shadow campaign, in development)

If you want to know, what my nickname means, -chen is a german diminutive term, so you can translate Novachen as something like Little Nova or Novalet.
Even my original meaning of this name is more like "Sweet pretty deadly (Super)Nova" ;).
