  1. is it a lie? discord is software hosted by a business. they need to make dollars somehow to keep the servers on. businesses don't offer free services because they feel like being nice, they offer free services because the user is the product.
  2. discord is awful and non-free and i personally don't like knowing my info/words/whatever are being monetized.
  3. Iffy made me read Worm awhile ago (like a year ago, but i only finished it in like december). At first i was like uuuugggghhhhh meh, but then i read all of it because it turns out it's actually really good. like stupidly good, even if the author is the type of person to use two spaces after ending sentences (ugh). now we're being super nerds and writing a fanfic.
  4. You are a: Communist Pro-Government Multilateralist Bleeding-Heart Progressive Collectivism score: 100% Authoritarianism score: 33% Internationalism score: 67% Tribalism score: -83% Liberalism score: 67% i mean, i guess.
  5. Notably, I remember both Starcraft and Warcraft III had really powerful editors (GREAT scripting system that I think blows BoX out of the water for ease-of-use). Obviously it's a different genre but you could definitely do some powerful stuff in there. SC2 has a pretty good editor from what i hear, but i haven't played with it much.
  6. aaaa they are currently set to mod only while we work out kinks but i guess they're not very kinky anymore so
  7. hi <3

    1. Wrath

      Wrath

      Hai ^-^

  8. updates here: a couple weeks ago iffy, neb, and myself met Jewels. Us three just had a meetup with Diki this evening as well.
  9. i'm not a huge fan of memey things but i've been eating up /r/traa stuff a lot. i'd link some goodies but a lot of it really requires context. really hated the "rage comics" of old but those aren't around much anymore, nowadays i'm mostly pissed off by irritating star wars memes (how many times can you make a "i have the high ground" joke before it gets old). also grats on 9k diki
  10. as long as the automap is 100% i'm happy. open every door in the town just to make sure the interior of peasant houses show up on map
  11. Also known as that one chapter of Life is Strange
  12. what okay so just fyi blades of exile and blades of avernum are different games. modern BoE works perfectly well on modern systems. Get the version from the BoE forum. 32- or-64 bit should be fine. Don't use the version from SW's main site because it won't work on modern systems. BoA works perfectly fine on my system (Win7 x64) and I see no reason for it to have issues on a windows 10 system.
  13. it's presently 2017. both of my monitors still have a legacy vga input and my high-end mobo has a (single) ps/2 port. even besides that, iirc win98 had usb key/mouse support, barring that i'm sure a simple driver will fix that. even besides that, i guarantee a school or other local institution has a closet full of ancient xp boxes they'll give away, that'll probably run exile fine. not saying buying old hardware is a good idea but it's damn misleading to call it expensive. personally, i keep a win98 vitualbox instance set aside for older games.
  14. probably nethergate, based on the nethergate tag the user put in i dunno if there's differences between new nethergate and old nethergate, but...
  15. It might be unrelated, but in the same situation (98se VM on Win7) I had to install some special video driver stuff onto 98 to get it to be even somewhat-responsive (something wonky with how things got virtualized, i guess). Perhaps this is a similar issue? It has been...some time...since I worked with it, though, so i don't remember any details.
