Was there nothing in your inbox like the screenshot suggests?

I don't know if it would be something like ban evasion by acknowledging you have multiple accounts or even using a VPN with their crackdown on that.

Why do you say that? We got a single glimpse of Vegas and I don't think much else

I asked a similar question a month ago and it seems like reports go everywhere. I guess it makes sense when instances have different rules and communities might as well

https://leminal.space/post/4351930

Anyone else notice more tankies/hexbear type users than usual on /all the past few weeks, across most of Lemmy?

I know they've always been on Lemmy, but it seems like the past few weeks it's slowly increasing, making me want to just stay on beehaw /local. Showing up on more communities, even on instances that ban that type of trolling explicitly....

Wasn't HexBear down for a bit and a lot of people were making accounts on Lemmy.ml or something?

Edit: Someone said it was Lemmygrad which sounds right

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I'm not sure. It could have to do with certain instances connecting to new communities or maybe there was a popular post bringing more people to the fediverse.

Might be worth seeing if there was a surge in new members.

I feel like the protagonist reminds me playing the original Fallout games. You're on the move and it's real easy to die. You aren't some immortal god.

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I doubt it. Didn't they make a big fuss about opening the outer doors?

I feel like it's a plot inconsistency like how how the Master never found the vault despite it's proximity to the Cathedral

Yeah any seemingly throw away line can have massive ramifications.

Look at Chicago for example

"The Brotherhood has been battling Super Mutants for decades. First out West, then in Chicago. Now here. But this group of Super Mutants is different, somehow. Physically, yes, but mentally as well. If we knew where they came from, we'd know why."

"The West Coast, unless something has changed. There's been no contact with them for the last several years. There's also a small detachment in Chicago, but they're off the radar. Gone rogue. Long story."

"Subject E: Diagnosis complete. Begin Recording. My name is Whitley. I'm a researcher at Adams Air Force base. Until recently I was in charge of the Duraframe reinforcement project for the combat model Eyebots. Eyebot Duraframe Subject E is both the prototype, and the last functional model in this test group. I was prepared to make several significant upgrades to the machines. However, as the project was canceled and all Duraframe assets are being diverted to Hellfire Armor, I am sending this model to the Navarro outpost. If you are listening to this log from one of our Enclave Outposts in Chicago, give this unit whatever repairs it needs so it can continue to Navarro."

This Fallout 3/NV dialogue setups up Chicago for the Enclave, Super Mutants, and the Brotherhood of Steel being there. It also says that sect of the Brotherhood of Steel have gone rogue. A total wildcard based off of one piece of dialogue.

Yeah but them acknowledging it brings part of it into the canon.

It's not like it's a Wild Wasteland moment.

Are choices important to you or are you okay with linear adventure games?

The 36-year-old has reportedly admitted to committing the crimes at the heart of the ongoing investigation, while providing the justification that he did it to earn a living. According to Automaton, the suspect could face up to five years imprisonment, and/or a fine of up to 5 million yen (over $32,600).

Seems pretty intense but I can't say I'm surprised. If I recall correctly Japan also has laws against console modding

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I feel the same way. There have been a lot of projects using the Kinect on Linux so I figured some work would have been done for the chatpad.

I imagine there is some easy way I am missing like simply using some kind of controller remapping program.

It almost seems like it's trying to make calls with older applications and that's why it's erroring out. I took a look at the files and I am guessing package-lock.json is the culprit. For example

npm WARN deprecated tar@2.2.2: This version of tar is no longer supported, and will not receive security updates. Please upgrade asap.

seems to match

    "tar": {
      "version": "2.2.2",
      "resolved": "https://registry.npmjs.org/tar/-/tar-2.2.2.tgz",
      "integrity": "sha512-FCEhQ/4rE1zYv9rYXJw/msRqsnmlje5jHP6huWeBZ704jUTy02c5AZyWujpMR1ax6mVw9NyJMfuK2CMDWVIfgA==",
      "requires": {
        "block-stream": "*",
        "fstream": "^1.0.12",
        "inherits": "2"

Going to https://registry.npmjs.org/tar/ gives me a GitHub link with the latest version being 6.1.13. I don't know if the fix as as simple as swapping the URL to be https://registry.npmjs.org/tar/-/tar-6.1.13.tgz (which apparently does exist) then doing the same thing for ini, har-validator, uuid, and request. Even then I don't know how to figure out the hash value that I would need to the integrity check.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Edit: The integrity section is under dist on https://registry.npmjs.org/package_name_here/. I am going to try to hack something together and see if it works.

Edit 2: I fixed the deprecated dependency errors with the exception of hal-validator and the latter part of the error message still remains.

Edit 3:

pm ERR! gyp ERR! stack Error: Command failed: /usr/bin/python -c import sys; print "%s.%s.%s" % sys.version_info[:3];

Makes me wonder if it's a Python issue but I really don't know how to proceed from here.

Edit 4: There's a section on the GitHub page's issue section that mentioned "Failed at the @serialport/bindings@2.0.2 install script" and I'm wondering if that might be it. The solution was apparently running npm install node-sass@latest --save --force before the npm i but it errors out when run in the chatpad-linux directory starting with

npm ERR! code 1
npm ERR! path /home/Luke/.custom_scripts/chatpad-linux/node_modules/ioctl

and it continues on with more text.

No worries.

I don't think you would technically need an Xbox 360 controller to test this. This is the step before running sudo nodejs index.js <serial port> and using the controller.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Thanks for the suggestion. It seems like that would have made upgrading the packages a lot easier.

Unfortunately after applying the fixes it suggests it seems to kind of send me in a circle. It did say at one point it might be a Python issue.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I own a few of those Rii keyboards. I feel like the chatpad feels a bit higher quality and I like navigating media apps with a controller. It would also be good for playing games.

Appreciate the suggestion though

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Why do you think they shit on New Vegas?

Do you have a source for the actor interview? I am wondering if they said something more akin to "it's not based on existing material". I feel like I recall that being a point of discussion in the past

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I feel like it's similar to FEV exposure where the results are somewhat random. Look at Jason Bright for example. He's a non-feral glowing one.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I am not sure. Considering ghouls are healed from radiation I feel like there would be more noticeable side effects when they take something to reduce their rad level. Though I don't know if there is a Fallout game that talks about a ghoul using something like Rad-X or Radaway.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I don't think there was ever going to be any doubt that Fallout New Vegas was canon. It's just a situation where it's weird we didn't hear about it in Fallout New Vegas.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Not sure if typo in your opening, but the chalkboard said the fall of Shady Sands was in 2277, not 2077.

Yeah I made the correction.

I don't think we really have a true indication of the canon ending of Fallout New Vegas. The official game guide for Fallout New Vegas talks about how the economy of the NCR has fallen out of balance and commoners are beginning to struggle with the rise of Brahmin Barons and Agri-Barons. This combined with the upkeep costs following the Treaty of New Vegas really seem to depict the NCR being strained.

The fall of Shady Sands could mean a shift of power out of California or a bunch of other things.

I feel like the writers would want to avoid pigeonholing themselves in the first season.

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I think they feel justified in doing it because of the free creation club content.

What apps would you love to have open-source alternatives for?

It seems like the FOSS community is continuing to grow, and FOSS apps keep getting better (Immich reallh blew my mind recently), which is a big win 😎 but there are still many apps I use that I would kill for an open source alternative. I am curious what you guys think? Are there any apps you'd love alternatives for?

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

TransMac. It's a tool to create MacOS install discs and USBs. It works off of a limited time free trial then you are supposed to pay.

It works great but I'd prefer something FOSS.

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Just wanted to shout out https://osgameclones.com/. It has a pretty decent list of them and source ports.

When people post YouTube links, is there a cool open source way to watch it on mobile without going through youtube, firefox, or downloading adblockers?

When people post YouTube links.. is there a cool open source way to watch it on mobile without going through youtube? Because when I click on a YouTube link and I'm on my phone and it immediately gives me an ad it's pissing me off like in a huge way.. is there a way to bypass ads without an ad blocker on my phone

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I wonder if you clicked and held the link if it would give you an "open with" prompt where you could choose an app like NewPipe or if you could have it auto redirect to a Piped source

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Oh yeah there's lots. I feel like a lot of people use ReVanced but I've never tried it. I use NewPipe because it allows me to locally export my subscriptions and use the open source frontend Invidious on desktop.

A bit of a personal preference. I imagine one of the piracy megathreads would have a list of community favorites. FMHY or the one on dbz0 would be worth looking at.

I want to fold a frying pan. The idea came to mind when I got cocky when switching from curling 25 lbs to 45 lbs

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Pretty much. The local dollar store would definitely know something is up when I'm buying packs of them.

Where in the world is laptop gaming the most popular?

I feel like I see a fair amount of gaming laptops in the US but a majority of people seem to still game on desktop. I guess what I am looking for is a ratio of one versus the other otherwise a country like China might dominate on numbers alone....

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I don’t see how any aspect mentioned is regional in nature.

I feel like what's in-style is going to be more important than thermals and overall specs. Maybe in some countries it's more common to carry a laptop with you? Maybe desktops are viewed as "dated" because laptops have become the norm in schools? Maybe it has something to do with tech literacy? Maybe it's easier to acquire desktop components versus laptops in some places?

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

What regions of the world do you think that would correspond with though?

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Where in the world would that be most relevant though? That's what I'm asking.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

Thank you for responding. This is the kind of information I was after.

How do you find the used market in Brazil?

Is there a market for buying traditional office PCs and adding a graphics card like there is here in the US?

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I feel like that matches up with the anime I've seen.

The mini PC market also doesn't seem rich enough to really rival laptops even with their compact size.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I think it is likely that most people that buy a laptop like these, see the shit show and the scam market and say fuck that, just give me a single product that mostly works.

This attitude could be more prevalent in different areas of the world though. Imagine somewhere in Eastern Asia that's flooded with dated low-grade products from China compared to the US where you don't see a lot of laptop brands you've never heard of before. There's going to be different levels of skepticism.

CorrodedCranium OP ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

I meant that in the way of mobile gaming become more feasible and widespread. I'd say gaming on desktop is the traditional experience wouldn't you?

CorrodedCranium ,
@CorrodedCranium@leminal.space avatar

It makes sense to me. It's adding something to base game rather than verging off in its own direction.

Kind like Wasteland Contraptions versus Nuka World in Fallout 4.
