Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Regardless, there's definitely a hard limit. Like if you are at 1kfps your brain is gonna be physically incapable of distinguishing any difference because that's on the level of action potential speed.

    I wonder what reality's framerate is.

    Seriously J not only are you a monumentally umpleasant person when you start uttering the nonsense that passes for philosophy in your mind (shame on whatever institution you graduated in, and shame on your tutors for creating such a monster), but your sense of humor, such as it is, is awful.

    What's mine is yours and whats your is also yours.

    Your brain has difficulty distinguishing anything much faster than 8 fps.

    I wonder if the moral of that story was to always laugh at people doing silly things

    Or to not laugh at them because they might be nice?

    There's putting your mouth directly on the tap and then there's cupping your hands underneath the tap, letting the wine spill onto your outstretched hands, and drinking that way.

    There are really no other options.

    You're just jealous of the for-real wines, Mr. Screw Top.

    Nah, we do real corks on our expensive one (corny) and synthetic on the rest (yay). Only our baby 187 ml. Single serves are screw topped.

    You pour it onto the ground into a puddle and then put your lips to the puddle.

    This is the God-approved method as per the Bible.

    _J_ planck time

    hi5, i was about to say this.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
    the "no true scotch, man" fallacy.

    So, reality's framerate is the number of frames per planck.

    ohhhh TCA is trichloroanisole

    I use TCA, trichloroacetic acid

    If wine has trichloroacetic acid something has gone terribly wrong.

    TCA?

    TCA is a compound that causes wines to have that moldy-wet-cardboard taste and smell. Sometimes it is super obvious but sometimes it is so subtle that it's not clear that TCA is undermining the flavor and the wine just seems bad in a vague way.

    Real corks cleaned with chlorine are a big cause of it.

    People are so used to 24 FPS that when you see something at a higher framerate, your brain tells you something is off.

    Seems... unnecessary.

    You can cut frames out of 24fps movies, and it's completely unnoticeable.

    I wonder if this will have the same effect that HDTV had when we all first saw it.

    We grow so accustomed to a certain artificial representation of reality, then we see something marginally more realistic and the effect becomes mind-blowing.

    I am surprised that after a zillion years of winemaking it still afflicts as much as a bottle per case. Sounds like you guys need some Six Sigma up ins 8->
    Winemakers are as bad as Republicans when it comes to change. Synthetic really is the way to go (I'm just giving desc shit).

    I'm surprised they don't insist it still be made by slave labor. :bz

    The difference between 24 and 48 fps is actually very, very noticeable.

    Someone had a cool little video comparison that they posted a while ago.

    They showed some footage of it recently apparently and people say that motion blur in action sequences becomes non existent.

    I'm pretty sure the bible says tap-to-mouth is the only moral manner of imbibing box wine. I will literally kill for this belief, as my father did before me, and his father before him
