    Guess I'm done playing Oxygen Not Included. It stutters like mad now when I loaded my game. Did not do that before. Can't find anything current online to fix it. :(

    That's really odd. The Klei forum support has been pretty solid through Early Access, it might be worth posting a bug report there.

    I changed my monitor refresh back to 144 and now the game works again for some reason. There are some slight hitches but they go away after a moment.

    If you're on 3x speed (like I assume most people are), I get pauses basically any time an existing pipe system gets updated as it recalculates flow. Maybe keep an eye on that? Or if you have flickering power and a suit checkpoint, I've noticed some spikes as all the dupes reassign themselves because they can't leave the base, then can, then can't, then can, etc.

    System Shock? Is that a Bioshock sequel or something?

    I have a locking USB drive I got at like, a trade show or something? I'm talking girl's diary lock, you can pop it with a hard look

    but if someone found it, it's all "what did he want to hide so much that his USB drive locks?"

    the only thing on it is a copy of a copy of the System Shock 2 folder from my old computer, and a DOS-box installer.

    This patch, known as NewDark, appeared on a French Thief fan forum called Ariane4ever. It was the work of an unknown coder simply known as ‘Le Corbeau’. Le Corbeau was a newcomer to the forum but had somehow delivered a patch that brought all the games made on the Dark Engine up to modern standards, releasing System Shock 2, both Thief games, and the editor DromED from their 90s technological prison. They’d even updated the demos.

    The impact of NewDark can’t be understated. The patch notes were so ludicrously complete, a laundry list of fixes that entire communities had dedicated years attempting to hack around, that people worried the patch was fake, potentially even a virus. But it was real. Hard limits coded into the engine had been increased, codecs changed, resolutions were updated, bugs squashed. Even the editor was future-proofed: “DromEd will no longer stop working after 03:14:07 on Tuesday, 19 January 2038”. System Shock 2 was modernised.

    ...


    But how had Le Corbeau pulled it off? The only reasonable explanation was that they had access to the source code. To trace that, we have to skip back in time again, this time to 2010. A modder on the Dreamcast Talk forum announced that they had a devkit Dreamcast. After a frustrating attempt to get into the unit’s hard drive, he finally managed to dump its contents. But that find wasn’t the important one here.

    More interesting for the history of the NewDark mod was an old disc in the bag the machine came in. That disc contained the source code to the Looking Glass games. Though it didn’t provide immediate access to Dark Engine’s secret vaults, it was the start.

    this story is wild

    Just to be clear, an anonymous unknown entity that is unable to be reached or contacted for human interaction is reverse-engineering and updating the source code for the game featuring the most notorious self-improving AI in computering history, and no one seems at all alarmed by this.

    My Strategos contracted smallpox, allowed his doctor to take extreme measures to cure him and when he woke up from the surgery he found that he was a eunuch, his betrothal had been broken off and his only son and heir had gone insane.

    The smallpox was gone, though!

    Still he was pretty miffed and decided, fuck it, it's time to start worshiping Satan.

    The detailing in Satisfactory felt a bit chintzy at the start, which I expected of an EA game, but gosh dang getting to the right tech level makes that a lot better. The chainsaw, rivet gun, and vibro-sword all sound and feel great to use. And the guns have a super fallout-lazgun-aesthetic I appreciate a lot.

    Third parties stealing credit cards to buy game keys is illegal. G2A then buys those keys but they pretend not to know that most of what they're buying is stolen. Despite offering a money back guarantee if your key is invalid, which is not a thing a legitimate retailer would need to offer.

    Multiple publishers/developers have said "hey just pirate our game instead of buying from G2A, it's easier on us"
