coming and new vidya General 1 Anonymous 02/02/2023 (Thu) 16:31:54 No.362 [Reply]
Since some of us likes to play or watch new vidya games either because of a sense of seeing how stagnant it is or because it might be fun or in hopes it might be fun. But before one can give judgement of what is and isn't shit one needs to know what is coming to PC and consoles. since vidya is the ultimate coomsumer hobby there is. So what is new and coming to the newest of new consoles and computers? So let us start with the Xbox Series X n S and PC with Xbox game-pass Xbox Series S and Series X what is coming to Game Pass as of 02/02/2023. >Hot Wheels Unleashed on xbone and series X and S >Atomic Heart Series X and S it is also a multiplat game >Wo Long Fallen Dynasty Series X and S it is a multiplat game >Minecraft Legends Series X and S probably PC but it could be a multiplat game >RedFall I think this is a Series X and S, and PC only kinda game These games was just in the pre-install forthcoming release of games on xbox game pass, what it means is that there is a nice list on the xbox console and that tells you to download them and when the release window is near, you will download them and then be able to play them. This list will be updated because there are many games that is coming day 1 on game pass and on regular stores.

>>365 These are games that are about to be released on xbox Series X and PC and some of them are going to be released on PS5. So if you have watched any new or any form of shilling from microsoft or sony. Then it is not hard to see you haven't heard of these games. >>366 I have some good or bad new for you. This isn't made by the people that made Techland or Dying Light 2 people. But it is made by another vidya development company called Dambuster studios. I dunno, what kinda talent they have there or which country it is from. But from the looks of it, they are copying as best as they can but is that really enough? >>367 gayming is stagnant, not dead. there is a difference. Stagnation means that it takes long times between good released games or just entertaining games.

What 5th generation games would you consider to be masterpieces and must-play games?
>>361 >N64 A list without Goldeneye 007 isn't a real list imo but the game has fortunately been released on xbox and nintendo switch. Perfect Dark is another N64 classic and somewhat better than Goldeneye 007. DOOM 64, do not know what to say other than it is fucking doom on the N64 and it is more of what you want from Doom but it wasn't made by ID software but Midway but still, it is solid extra content for Doom. Ocarina of Time is a bit overhyped and the same is with Majora's Mask but these where the first real 3d games with a nice control of the actual 3d space, it takes a bit of time to get used to even a bit of figuring out. >PS1 Silent Hill because it is easier than RE original trilogy series on ps1, and the combat is pretty good even when you can just run away from the enemies. FF7 up to 9 because they are the first 3d jrpgs that kinda showed what it is to be jrpg and in 3d, even when summoning takes a really fucking long time and tries to look so epic that it is literally wasting your time, and the combat isn't as fast, as one kinda wants it to be. Wild Arms it isn't full 3d except for combat but it has a charm that is somewhat overlooked but still, it is one of those games where you play it you don't forget it because of the charm of the game.
>>364 >FPSshit into the trash >Silent Hill because it is easier than RE original trilogy series Not really, it has actual puzzles you need to solve. >even when summoning takes a really fucking long time There's literally a skip animation option.

It's about interacting with humans. Though, he focuses on help for the elderly and people with dementia. But also claims wheeled robots like pepper wouldn't be good enough for that (which I rather question). He claims humans would want bipedal robots in many places, which might be kind of true but also dependent on many things like the price for example.

That Time I Incarnated My Christian Cat Girl Maid Wife in a Short Dress Together we can create the robowaifu-verse! Let's start making media to further our cause. There's tremendous potential for us to reach a wide market and prime minds to accept their future cat grill meidos in tiny miniskirts. We have text based stories floating around but, audio and visuals are paramount to gain a general audience. I will start with a short about a young man building a small cat girl and learning to understand her love. Importantly, she will be very limited, in the same way our first models will be. To set certain expectations. Mahoro is impossible but, the slow and simple robowaifus that can exist have their own charm. Let's show the world the love that will soon exist.

Since we have no thread for hands, I'm now opening one. Aside the AI, it might be the most difficult thing to archive. For now, we could at least collect and discuss some ideas about it. There's Will Cogleys channel: - he's on his way to build a motor driven biomimetic hand. It's for humans eventually, so not much space for sensors right now, which can't be wired to humans anyways. He knows a lot about hands and we might be able to learn from it, and build something (even much smaller) for our waifus. Redesign: More: Finger prototype: CMC joint: I think the thread about sensoric skin >>242 is closely related to this topic, because it will be difficult to build a hand which also has good sensory input. We'll have to come up with some very small GelSight-like sensors. F3 hand (pneumatic) Festo hand (pneumatic) Thread >>417 is about Prosthetics, especially Open Prosthetics. This can be relevant to some degree. However, the constraints are different. We might have more space in the forearms, but we want marvelous sensors in the hands and have to connect them to the body.

>Building a Robot Hand from Scratch >Why is it so hard? I generally like the approach with putting small motors into the hand, though my thinking was to add additional one in the arm which could hold more than one finger but are stronger. The one in the hand are for fast and weak movements, the few motors in the arm for holding and more powerful moves. Also, our versions have to be much smaller than all these man hands, of course.

His main project is a full humanoid, but it's supposed to look exactly like something between man and female. Brad Pitt and Scarlett Johansson in one, dependent on the angle you look at.

kiwi's Tutorials Kiwi 12/17/2021 (Fri) 20:32:59 No.14704 [Reply]
Kiwi here to teach fellow Anons. First is how to make a ball and socket that pop together with side guides. These guides turn it into a universal joint. You can incorporate this design into many different other designs, I recommend using petroleum jelly to smooth out the motion. For reference, the ball is a 12 mm sphere. The socket has an internal 13 mm sphere and the mm difference is necessary at all scales. More tutorials will come. All information is freely given for the sake of catgrill meidos.

>>14855 >*Random anon wanders by* If this is of interest to you look at the engineering of snap fittings, which is what such "clips" are called. There's a lot more to it. For example, your snap fit uses a return angle of 90 deg, which locks the snap fit. Using a larger return angle makes it possible to pull out the snap fit (i.e. you can tailor the amount of force needed). The material, and fabrication method (e.g. FDM as in your example, or injection molded) all make significant differences to the design and how it functions. Useful resources: 2 books attached + You may also be interested in things like "living hinges" and "compliant mechanisms" in the future. Best wishes t. engineer

The thing pisses me off is that Youtube actively burying the old content by making it harder to reach. Lots of old videos doesn't show up on the search results despite still existing on the web. A lot of them got deleted as well. Now you cannot even list videos from oldest to newest on a youtube channel. I wish there was a way to crawl old youtube videos for sake of nostalgia.
>>1045 yeah that shit is fucking gay there must be a browser extension im guessing that would allow you to do so.
>>1045 There is a way to find strictly older videos on YouTube by using a custom search query. Simply type in whatever you want to search and add "before:" to your search query. Include the colon. After the colon would be the year you want. For example, if I want to search "capirinha before:2008", it would fetch me videos about that old meme that were published before the year 2008. I hope this helps you.

Last year I created an "enthusiast" level discord server and created a few channels for brainstorming and research (not knowing about /robowaifu/ at the time) - it is interesting to see how many ideas are here that were the same and how many new ideas as well. So what if we were to create an enthusiast tier board for propaganda and memes, fiction, discussion, but anyone wanting to go further into the technical realm would be from a smaller pool. So we have a larger pool which is more "normie" friendly and fun, but those who want more, or who are ready, can be vetted and introduced into the inner circle, so to speak. What do you think?

I think we can all agree that Capcom made a fuckload of good games. It's practically impossible to agree on what their greatest game is; so what, in your opinion, is their greatest franchise?

Post about whatever media predominately features at least one fembot aka gynoid (female form of an android) as an important character, ideally a robowaifu or synthetic girlfriend. Some freedom with the topic is allowed, virtual waifus or bodiless AI might also qualify if she is female. Negative framing of the whole topic should be mentioned with negative sentiment. Cyborgs with a human brain or uploads of women don't really fit in, but if she's very nice (Alita) and maybe not a human based cyborg (catborg/netoborg) we can let it slide. Magical dolls have also been included in the past, especially when the guy had to hand-made them. Look through the old thread, it's worth it: >>82 - Picrel shows some of the more well know shows from a few years ago. I made a long list with links to more info's on most known anime shows about fembots/robowaifus, without hentai but including some ecchi and posted it here in the old thread: >>7008 - It also features some live-action shows and movies. I repost the updated list here, not claiming that it is complete, especially when it comes to live action and shows/movies we don't really like. >In some cases I can only assume that the show includes robogirls, since the show is about various robots, but I haven't seen it yet.

As Yuichi puts them all together, he is astonished to find a "real" maid walking and talking before his very eyes. All was good until that one fateful day... That said, it's also labeled as comedy, and this can easily end up being silly. Out of experience I'm generally careful about the combo between ecchi and comedy.

>>19378 >I don't see where this is stated? Just... Oh. My apologies, Anon. That's just a silly euphemism I adopted for generally-distracted anons too focused on vidya or other (basically fruitless) pursuits to be very productive, aka (loosely,) NEETs (and that vague association with the other, more normalfag men of somewhat similar persuasion). The tl;dr is that they might become interested in robowaifus one day (once perfected well-enough), but otherwise have little personal interest in actually establishing the Robowaifu Age (or some near facsimile thereto.) It wasn't actually my intent to conflate that story's protagonist with such; merely projecting my own estimates of that specific scenario's likelihood -- from the perspective of a (future) robowaifu businessman intent on marketing first to Anon Sixpack, and then to the literally millions of corollary Joe Sixpacks out there. :^) Again, my apologies. >and later it's about getting bigger pre-assembled parts from some cheap labor places, but also about working with a local company or peer-group for the final assembly.

The Sumomo Project Chobitsu Board owner 11/24/2021 (Wed) 17:27:18 No.14409 [Reply] [Last]
So I've been working for a while at devising an integrated approach to help manage some of the software complexity we are surely going to encounter when creating working robowaifus. I went down many different bunny trails and (often) fruitless paths of exploration. In the end I've finally hit on a relatively simplistic approach that AFAICT will actually allow us to both have the great flexibility we'll be needing, and without adding undue overhead and complexity. I call this the RW Foundations library, and I believe it's going to help us all out a lot with creating workable & efficient software that (very hopefully) will allow us to do many things for our robowaifus using only low-end, commodity hardware like the various single-board computers (SBCs) and microcontrollers. Devices like the Beaglebone Blue and Arduino Nano for example. Of course, we likely will also need more powerful machines for some tasks as well. But again, hopefully, the RW Foundations approach will integrate smoothly with that need as well and allow our robowaifus to smoothly interoperate with external computing and other resources. I suppose time will tell. So, to commemorate /robowaifu/'s 5th birthday this weekend, I've prepared a little demonstration project called Sumomo. The near-term goal for the project is simply to create a cute little animated avatar system that allows the characters Sumomo and Kotoko (from the Chobits anime series) to run around having fun and interacting with Anon. But this is also a serious effort, and the intent is to begin fleshing out the real-world robotics needs during the development of this project. Think of it kind of like a kickstarter for real-world robowaifus in the end, but one that's a very gradual effort toward that goal and a little fun along the way. I'll use this thread as a devblog and perhaps also a bit of a debate and training forum for the many issues we all encounter, and how a cute little fairybot/moebot pair can help us all solve a few of them. Anyway, happy birthday /robowaifu/ I love you guys! Here is my little birthday present to you. === >rw_sumomo-v211124.tar.xz.sha256sum 8fceec2958ee75d3c7a33742af134670d0a7349e5da4d83487eb34a2c9f1d4ac *rw_sumomo-v211124.tar.xz >backup drop

Meido ownership as lifestyle choice--taking things higher, Anon! :^) Not much new to talk about for this drop, tbh. Really just to step out and get back into the game for the project. A few little odds & ends here & there to tighten things up in the code just a bit but nothing new externally. Probably not much more to add to RW Pageone, seems most of the basics have been covered sufficiently well now to begin thinking more seriously about Bumpmaster to come. We may go straight to a crude GUI approximation soon, rather than grind things out on the backend much further atm. Who knows, we'll see.

Longtime lurker, only occasional poster here. I've read through this whole thread again and I still don't understand it. What is this? The OP states it's code for working with single board computers and shit but I don't see them mentioned again. What is bumpmaster? Imageboard software? Is this that archival project you were working on? What is Sumomo's World? Some kind of 2D waifu simulator/game? Is it playable/usable? Screenshots? Whatever happened to that? What is an arigato-class robowaifu? Does this exist? I don't believe I've seen it referenced anywhere else before. >>15723 >that code box What even is this? What is a Pandora?

I'd suggest simply hiding the thread rather than scratching your head over it. You would certainly need to be able to build software for the code to mean much for you at this stage.

>>17585 Using more diagrams as indicated in this thread here >>4143 would help. Using plantUML, Mermaid, or Obsidian. This problem will get bigger and bigger without a onsite search option and without diagrams and summaries in the threads. So anyone working through some thread (again) should maybe consider to make notes and try to make them in a format which can be used to make at least some simple diagram(s). The main devs of projects are also well advised to create some overview. It might look all obvious to themselves, but like a mess to anyone else.
>>19376 Yes, point well-taken Anon. This project is actually going to be a yuge project in the end, so such aids to understanding for a team will be vital.

>>18835 >that company in particular is one of the last ones Anon should have anywhere near his robowaifu I agree. The main thing is to try and understand their math and make our own open source design based on it. Now I may be able to do some waifu actuators but this AI stuff is over my head. I "maybe" could eventually understand it, but in reality I'm too lazy to bang my head against that wall of math to actually do it. I would have to go back and review so much stuff and learn so much new math, it would be tough. Maybe I could and will, but I doubt it. The thing is that these people show what "could" be done. When you know something can be done, that's a big part of the hurdle to doing things. Just like until Musk showed that electric cars could be done no one was in the least bit interested. I want to add something important. I want to show that computing increases mean that robowaifu is definitely possible and how this relates to a planned build and what can be done. Here's some computing data I saved. How many MIPS in a Human Brain? 100,000,000 How many MIPS in an insect? 10 How many MIPS in a ESP32? 600 DMIPS How many MIPS in a Guppy? 1,000

I was looking through video's I saved of XnorAI and found this one. It gives a bit of an overview of how they are doing really significant AI with super low power devices. They only using 1 bit for their convolutional networks. Not that I understand all this. But I can easily understand the huge difference between the power of matrix additions on 32 or 16 or 8 bits for traditional AI compared to 1 bit. They're doing object recognition on rasberry pi's. I can't help but this this could be significant. If this could be used for walking, speech recognition, and we know it can be used for person recognition and this would be extremely useful. They say they are working on speech recognition for devices like cell phones. So assuming we have a mass of ESP32's the power is far above a regular cell phone. The training of this would be difficult and take a long time but once trained it's then a matter of just copying the training over to new devices. Unfortunately XnorAI was bought by Apple and went dark.
>>19341 Thanks for the reminder Grommet. Yes, this is definitely the kind of efficiency-approach we need to attempt capitalizing upon. Robowaifus need to be able to operate independently from external compute or data resources in at least a 'powered-back' mode.

The new game that is published by Square Enix and made by Luminous Productions/ Business Division 2 that formerly made Final Fantasy XV. If one wonders how could the Japanese studio fuck up so badly? that is because the script write and anything with lore is written by western writers some cucks and some past talents like Amy Hennig and Gary Whitta. Now one might wonder how does this mess star off with. you are a criminal negress that is established for being a criminal and is about to be sentenced for the 3 strike program. With luck she gets away with it, then she is taken by gangbanger negress woman and a wigger woman with a gun, for not being able to steal a car then the negress protagnoist escapes, and I shit you not. How she is able to come to another world is by actually trying to steal a bracelet which she can see the glitter from afar. Then a portal opens and then she mumbles in negro, and you are off on an adventure. So far the interaction and exploration is alright but there is some cutscenes that are a bit annoying, and the difficulty is a bit too easy, and the shooting magic stone and other stuff is just alright, not too fun or too challenging. The whole thing feels like a game made for white people that want to pretend to be niggers, or what niggers might like to play as a game. While having this candance owens looking bitch as protagonist while saying negro gibberish. For now it is a solid 5/10 graphics is bretty gud but the negro just made a sour taste in muh mouth.

It's made by Yoshida who's like a discount dollar store Matsuno and is the only competent creator with any sort of actual vision still left in SE. The game will likely be similarly competent and averagely decent just on the merit of it being made by someone with an idea of how he wanted the game to be from start to finish, and not the stitched together abomination that was 15. Basically offline 14 with actual action combat that works. Not too bad honestly seeing how 12 was basically made like an offline MMO and now an MMO guy is making an offline FF as well. And iirc everyone who's left that worked on 12 is on 16 now.

How do we eat this elephant, /robowaifu/? This is a yuge task obviously, but OTOH, we all know it's inevitable there will be robowaifus. It's simply a matter of time.

An API is probably a good thing, but I'm just not interested in learning much about JS, since we have a mountain of stuff waiting to be worked through already for robowaifu's systems code. JS will obviously not be anywhere near this code, ofc! :^) Again, pull-requests welcome. If someone wants to help him integrate an API that could be tied to a Waifusearch module for Lynxchan, it would be a big plus for anyone on any IB using his software.
>>19073 I didn't mean that you rewrite it in JS, and not that you need learning it (only The Good Parts, anyways). Waifusearch would run on the server, and anons could still download their own version. But any visitor could search the board(s) just using a search field and getting a result. Lynx might of course use JS to implement that connection into the board software, but who knows. It should work with the board calling Waifusearch on the server or as external service. It would improve Lynxchan in general, so maybe he would add some API. >Captcha There might be some module for getting around capchas. Maybe not in CPP, but maybe yes. You will survive using some Python glue code. I would look around KurobaEX. Looking it up... Oh it's more likely to be Kotlin:
>>19190 Thanks for the clarification Anon. I agree that it would be a nice improvement to the IB experience in general (as we ourselves have proven on our own board), but I just don't see Stephen Lynx as being an innovator, and this is something that I've never seen any IB software do personally. Thanks for the tips about dealing with captcha. It's a sticky business in general, but we'll need to address it well if we're going to have our robowaifus be able to funpost alongside us. Obviously the pertinent HTTP calls are there to be broken down and reversed, I just CBA to tackle it myself ATM. Hopefully someone else who can program in libcurl will provide a solution for it soon. :^)

Open file (2.22 MB 1920x960 Herdy Gerdy.png)
Herdy Gerdy – a forgotten little gem from the early days of PS2. I actually have a bit of a history with this game, I remember seeing it in a magazine way back when, before it even came out, and it was one of those games that represented the then new 6th gen for me, with that sort of happy-go-lucky colorful platforming vibe of the early ’00s. Though I never got around to playing it until now. It’s actually not what I was expecting it to be. It’s sort of a “herding” game, as the name implies, but it’s really more like a simple puzzle game – you have to figure out how to trap enemies and herd different animals to their corresponding pens while avoiding danger. Ultimately there’s only one optimal way to do it and figuring out the solution becomes pretty fun and addictive. The game is fairly easy, clearly targeted at a younger audience, but there’s this soothing and satisfying zen-like process to it. The main draw of the game are these large open levels where you can run around freely and do some light platforming; pretty impressive for the time. Every level is vibrant and very comfy, and the art direction is really interesting for a western game, with this subdued color palette and cell-shaded look imitating a ’90s cartoon aesthetic. That being said, they probably got a bit too ambitious for their actual abilities, the game looks good but runs at like 15 fps which undermines a lot of tighter platforming moments. There are also a lot of loading times every which way. At least restarting a level is surprisingly instantaneous, which helps a lot since redoing the level until you figure out the optimal solution is mandatory. The camera is also a bit clunky, it always slides off the position you want it in, and there’s no vertical movement of the camera at all. That alone would be manageable but together with the framerate it just really hard to be precise with your movements at times. You get used to it eventually, it’s not a game-breaking issue or anything, they just didn’t optimize it very well. I think one disappointing aspect is that there’s really nothing to do outside of the main gameplay; there’s nothing to find or to collect on all these large levels. You instinctively want to explore them for stuff but there’s none. No currency, health items, or any other items. You can’t die anyway. Well, there are these bells to collect for some art galleries but you can only start collecting them once you’ve unlocked all the abilities, waaay by the endgame, so you just ignore them throughout most of the playtime. Definitely a wasted opportunity here. There’s also only one actual boss that you have to platform around, weird they didn’t do more to add variety since you do have some platforming abilities. Like I mentioned, the game does look great, performance aside. The texture quality is excellent and all the models are nicely detailed and animated. The weirdest thing is that they have these cutscenes with very impressive animations which were all made in-engine, but what they ended up using instead are the recorded videos of those cutscenes with atrocious compression. Don’t really understand the reason for doing this, kinda ruins all the work. On that note, there’s sadly no story to speak of, it’s basically an arcady collection of levels. Which is fine but I feel like with that whole unique art direction there was an opportunity for something here, some interesting narrative, and it’s generally nice to have some story urgency, but it’s kinda wasted here. Music on the other hand is nice and chill and the audio mixing is great in general. Voice acting not so much, it feels like they had three people to do all the voices, and they suck at all of them. Definitely a very comfy experience, decently long too, like up to 15 hours if you wanna be thorough.

The new and last game in the Fire Emblem series is here! Fire Emblem Engage what is it about? It start off with, you choosing between a male or female avatar and then it starts off with you battling the bad guys. Now you win and wake up a thousand years in the future, and you are greeted by a loli calld Framme and shota, called Clanne then an old duder called vander, and you learn that you have amnesia then later you meet your mother which is a divine dragon mommy called Lumera, and can turn on her will. Also you learn yourself that you are the bloodline of divine dragons, and thus meaning you are divine and then the emblems are rings of past hero. and the bad guy or the Fell dragon has awoken again! And you are on a journey to fight evil or The Corrupted. Now, is the gameplay any good? There is the walking around and talking to and interacting with the NPC which is the fwend simulation part of the game, so like the school grounds in Fire Emblem Three Houses you have something similar called the Somniel which is where all the interactions happens oand sometimes after a battle also so you walk around and fuck around the battlegrounds, so if you want you can even adopt animals like a cat, then you have the story being told via cutscenes. The combat aspects is quite good but unlike three houses that really wanted to show a battlefield with each unit, and generally had this epic feel. this is just one on one battles like the 3DS games like Fire Emblem Awakening or Echoes.But now instead of you being a hero with no power or anything, since you are a divine dragon, you have this gimmick of Emblem ring which makes this game copy Fate/Autism to some degree. So these are legendary heroes of time long past that you use in battle and conveniently are rings you can change, and then you can use them to engage in battle whenever you want, which only means you emerge with the hero you have chosen and become a robot looking thing and you are stronger for 3 turns in that battle skirmish, and then you have to wait until it fulfills again to use it. The rings aren't tied to a specific character, so if you want you can use loli and Math or another ring. Also Engage has other things that are more like previous Fire Emblem games like Fire Emblem Echoes is there is a world map also. So it is a solid 7/10 game so far. I am not sure what this game has to do with previous Fire Emblem games except the name and use of heroes from previous Fire Emblem games, I am not into the Fire Emblem lore tbqh.

I've never played the series, where should I start?
>>283 You can basically start with any game in the series. These games feels like they are like Final Fantasy where you don't need to know too much about past games to enjoy the new games. I started with Fire Emblem Awakening and really liked the series because it is easy to get into and to play. The modern games or the 3ds and switch games you can skip out on permadeath of characters or units that die in combat skirmishes. If you have a 3ds then Awakening and Echoes is pretty good, if you have a Switch then Three Houses is pretty darn good, also these games are a bit of waifub8.
Fire Emblem Engage 15 hours inn. I can be confident in some few things and those are that this is a good contender for muh personal goty this year and what it lacks in the beginning(waifub8) the game builds up in a nice way where one does not feel cheated. What I kinda think is the biggest problem is the Somniel mechanics or where you supposed to go for interaction with the characters, I feel that it is quite poor because for now(this might change the further I get into the game it might become like three houses) the interaction is quite limited and there is just 2 mini games because the fishing-bit isn't opened. So for now, how I interact is to get them up in the support level via either a combat trail, romantic dinner or gift them random things like horseshit(none of the characters like it when you gib them horseshit). Then there is going to bed and sleep and then a random NPC is going to wake you up.If this was another JRPG I might've felt cheated when it comes to the waifub8 interaction and the fwend simulation of this game so-far but I actually like the gameplay-part rather then the waifub8 interaction that is presented in the game, so now I don't feel that I have to change the waifub8score it is still a solid 6 out of 10. And some of the waifu's that is presented in later chapters or as side-quest are a nice 8/10 b8 with nice tiddies. The real meat and potatoes of the game is obviously the combat mechanics with the Emblem heroes and that the stages is in 3d so after each combat you can walk around in the stages and to interact with characters to get gibs and find gibs for weapon upgrades and other upgrade like the Emblems. Personally like this more than the whole Sominel-place interaction-bit area, the Sominel feels like they just put it there so that the people that are fans of Three Kingdoms can feel familiar with this new game. So to level up the emblem heroes, also the bigger the level is with the bond then you can inherent emblem heroes skills which is really nice way to mix things up. The engage mechanics at first it just seems like a gimmick that isn't really needed in the game because it is somewhat overpowered, and you are overpowered for 3 turns but without it the combat would've lasted maybe a few turns longer which would have felt more like a grind when you are wanting to level up some fags. Also the downgrade to make it just 1v1 instead of what Three houses did. makes the battle just feel more vicious and brutal in a strange way than what they really are, and the the sound design really shines because Nintendo is semi progressive, they have chosen to have both men and women voice the soldiers and bandits, so the death cries, and these death cries becomes like allot more brutal when Japanese women screams in agony which gives a nice tension to each battle,even when you have 6 characters that have engage on , this is real fun. Then the world-map of the game is really where the focus is since you can grind and obviously get to the next chapter and further the story, what is annoying is that you have to get to the Somniel or walking area of the game to giv gibs to each region while you git gibs from the grind that you did in the world map. So the gameplay is still a solid 7/10 and I don't think this will change later because it feels like a real video game package with solid gameplay.

What is this game? It's fantasy RPG with turn-based strategy. It's like Civilization, Master of Magic, or Heroes of Might and Magic. It's addictive, just-one-more-turn strategy. I'm a huge fan of AOW 1 and 2. The game has a lot of interesting fantasy races and I can't wait to see what races are available in 4. It looks like Mole and Rat humanoids are some new races in this game. Also, the game builds on Tolkien's fantasy genre and creates their own beautiful version. Visually, this game builds on AOW 3 and has very colorful, sharp graphics sort of like WOW except cleaner and higher-polygon, but still sort of cartoony and stylized. Full presentation reveal: Developer thread:

>>322 Sseth released a video on yewtube on the original but the racial selection is for the faction effects and it's far from an MMO. The art style is just the modernization of the originals, MMO just borrow from the same sources is all. >>314 >It looks like Mole and Rat humanoids are some new races in this game. Do you think this will shift the focus to some underground aspect?

>>327 >Sseth released a video
>>328 I'm just saying there's plenty of resources since clinking on the link or reading the OP was far too hard for anon.
>>327 <Sseth I will check video out. Thanks. <Moles and rats underground. Maybe it will have more underground aspects but there's always been a cave-crawling underground layer to most AOW maps as the Dwarves, Goblins, and Orcs operate underground. <MMO's draw from the same sources Yeah. Tolkien created modern fantasy. Then DND expanded the races and subraces: And Magic the Gathering also draws from this. MTG and DND are both owned by Wizards of the Coast, which is owned by Hasbro.
So for anyone interested in this game before May, now is the time to catch up and play AOW 1-3. The first 2 games are very old but run on any computer due to their sprite graphics (but are tricky to get to work on modern Windows). Also, these games have a beautiful symmetry of underlying systems in the game that determine everything. Like the races have terrain bonuses or penalties that affect how fast or slow they move across those terrains. And they have race relations with other races. Some despise other races and that affects whether units on your side desert you and how their unit morale is affected. So if you capture a Goblin town with Elves, the Goblin town might revolt under Elf oppression because the evil Goblins hate the good Elves. And the Goblin units you produce from that town might abandon you. So you have to migrate the Goblins out and ship a new race in. Literal ethnic cleansing in a strategy game, which is based. The races have an good/neutral/evil alignment too. And they all balance each other out in a beautiful symmetry. I took these pics from the AOW 2 game manual to show these systems.

I found this project and it looks interesting. Robots wives appeal to me because i'm convinced human woman and humans in general have flaws that make having close relationships with them a waste of energy. I'm a pathetic freshman engineering student who knows barely anything about anything. Honestly, I think current technology isn't at a place that could produce satisfying results for me at least. I'd like something better than an actual person, not a compromise. Even then the technology is there, I have my doubts it'll be affordable to make on your own. Fingers crossed though. Anyway, what kind of behavior would you like from your robot wife? I'd like mine to be unemotional, lacking in empathy, stoic and disinterested in personal gain or other people. I think human woman would be improved if they were like that. Sorry if this thread is inappropriate.

>>19240 >How about you? Apologies for not replying to this in my initial response; I didn’t see it. I too am very devout in my faith to Jesus Christ, and I have a similar perception of the Holy Trinity. I have been a Christian my entire life, but deepened in my faith somewhat recently and gained a new level of interest in scripture. My reimmersion in Christ helped to pull me out of a negative place I was consistently finding myself in, and I’m very grateful to have intensified my beliefs when I did.
>>19247 Great! The Christian Bible is of course key to your spiritual growth. One of the many, many amazing characteristics of the Holy Spirit is that He brings His word to life when you read it. It's alive! That's amazing actually, and there's no other living book in existence. >tl;dr In Soviet Russia, when you read the word, the Word reads you!! :^)
>>19246 Thank you for such a thoughtful response. I can definitely understand your point, your actions are far lesser in sinfulness than the constant evils occurring around us, and they have solid justifications behind them. Counteracting the will of Satan and his visible nefarious behavior against humanity via hard work is a noble pursuit, especially when the opposition wields so much power. You have definitely made a believer out of me in regards to your vision and its righteousness. Your acceptance of the future judgement you will face for your actions and your desire to help men establish better romantic and religious relationships is truly admirable. I wish you all the best in this endeavor and am excited to see how it progresses. >>19248 It’s really great to find someone who shares the same appreciation for the Holy Spirit and His manifestation that I do! As an 18 year old high school senior at the moment, it’s somewhat depressing being surrounded by many people blind to the light of Christ. I really think that the current departure from religion and adaptation of nihilistic attitudes by many is a key factor in the West’s decay, and a tangible impact of Satan’s work at play. Thankfully, I’m going to a more religious college next year, where hopefully I can find individuals who share my degree of fascination in God and scripture irl. Regardless, I hope you continue to stay steadfast in your devotion to Christ, He is our best bet to escape the unfortunate situation we find ourselves in. I’ve had a pleasure discussing this topic with you, and I hope we can both carry out the will of God in our futures.
>>19251 >I wish you all the best in this endeavor and am excited to see how it progresses. Thanks brother, that's really appreciated. As you can readily imagine many in the body of Christ will immediately knee-jerk condemn robowaifus as an absolute work of the enemy (and in some cases -- say, the Globohomo's brand of 'robowaifus', they'll be right). I speak only for myself personally of course, but I see this work as being healing for females in general as well. In the end, after the fallout from the turmoil that's coming, women themselves will have benefitted from robowaifus, in that it forced them out of this trap Satan set for them (and for us all) of despicable feminism. >tl;dr Hide your power level Anon! Your community hasn't understood what you have now, nor do they even want to for the most part. They will vilify you if you dare mention that somehow stronk, independynt feminism isn't the best thing since Noah departed from the Ark! :^) I covet your prayers to our Heavenly Father for our good success and favor building effective robowaifus, here with this group, and elsewhere. >=== -minor fmt, prose edit -add 'healing females' cmnt

You're right, of course. It's a strategic military operation on Satan's part. If he can destroy the faith of Christianity throughout the earth, then he thinks he can re-establish himself as the power over the world he was before the death & resurrection of Jesus Christ.

>>784 I think that French lentils are best. They retain shape when cooked, and have a pleasant peppery, earthy flavor. When pandemic was starting, everyone was going for rice and pasta, but lentils were almost untouched, despite keeping just as well and being far more nutritious. I stacked up on them and have been slowly making my way through the excess. Usually I cook up a batch and eat them over few days. When cooking I add mirepoix, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, salt, and pepper. If I happen to have some homemade stock or bouillon cube I add it too. My go to uses are: >Bowl of lentils topped with herbs or fresh green vegetables >As a side for meat instead of starches like potatoes or rice >To thicken and enrich stews, good to add protein and more flavor to a "vegan chilli" for example >Cold in salads >Cooked until they turn into a creamy soup My go to recipe is a lentil salad. All you need are pre-cooked lentils, carrots, celery, onion, mustard, olive oil, and lemon. All of these ingredients keep well and most people have them on hand. I use one cup of vegetables per two cups of lentils. Fresh herbs are very good to top the salad; parsley or chives work best in my opinion, but scallions work well too. For fat, goat cheese is my favorite here, but fresh mozzarella, avocado, or even an extra potion of olive oil will work well too. Recipe is simple: >Dice carrots, celery, onion. You can saute them a bit, but that's optional. >Mix vegetables in a bowl with precooked lentils. >Mix in a table spoon of mustard and a tablespoon of olive oil >Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste, mix it

>>784 Roast some cut down carrots, put the lentils in, with water, you may add add some laurel leafs, let it cook at some decent heat. While waiting roast some onion in a pan, add some flour when then onions are already dark, wait till the flour is golden or brown and add this to the lentils. Of course stir it from time to time so it wont glue on the ground, scratch a bit around there. Put some salt and black pepper in, maybe a bit Muscat powder. You may experiment with some additional spices, a bit chilly is also nice. Also add some sausages (e.g. German hotdog like "Saitenwürste"), maybe cut them in a little, let it boil on low heat for a while. The sausages need to exchange some flavor with the rest but don't really need to be cooked so add them rather late. Tomato sauce makes it a bit fruity, that's the more Italian than (South)-German variant, in that case you don't need the rosted flour above, and it may fit better without the sausages. I sometimes also added other vegetables, especially green or red pepper. Also need some pasta. For the fully German variant it would be pasta with eggs and rather mushy instead al dente. But works with other pasta as well. Mix it on the plate and add some vinegar (also for better digestion). You can of course also cook it with some meat that may be smoked or already cooked, amd it needs to gets soft when cooked so you won't end up with the something like rubber. Or replace the pasta with potatoes.

>>312 The only games still using pre-rendered backgrounds are indieshit, and while that can scratch the itch a little bit it's a far cry from having a real AAA game using them. Indieshit also uses them mainly as an easy way out, so you're never gonna see some complex multilayering, depth of filed effects, mixed 3D, or any other interesting effects that were associated with the style. It's usually just a static backdrop and that's it, "game is done".
>>313 I mean, like allot of the indies are just wanting to release a random game even when no one wants to play it.If not it is a love letter to a specific genre or something dumb. And allot of Indies have learned that consumers don't know what they want, so it is your job to tell them what they want and make a game for that and often because they want a good review they will make a preachy social justice game or random bullshit game. And the indies aren't technology wizards or nerdy enough to read these technology papers, most people aren't nerd enough to read these tech pappers if they don't get paid to do it, which you would think a coder in an indie studio is paid enough to waste his time on reading about new technology or how to use technology to his advantage.
>>316 which is why indie shit sucks and is not a solution to anything like some people try and push. at best indie shit just imitates what was done in the past, often times out of laziness/technical ineptitude. It can never actually move forward, it's stuck in the past.
>>324 The reason why so many push the indie stuff is because vidya journalists did it in 09 to 13 they pushed the indies being the next thing making awesome games and new forms of experiences and so on, even not questioning if they are going to release a product when they put it on Kickstarter. Yes, I am still salty that spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness is forever canceled because games journalists found Dyack as the person to target that year for no reason than saying that there is some corruption in the vidya industry and that Silicon Knights got unfair bad press which is true at the time. Oh well. But I would also say that it really depends on the indie dev because you have lazy to even great indie devs also, so the original creator of Silent Hill and he that made Forbidden Siren/Siren series along with Gravity Daze/Rush series, he has made an indie studio to make a horror tittle and I have high hopes for it because it feels like he is going to make something amazing. But will not know before it is released in the future, then you have Koji Igarashi that made Bloodstained that was a really great metroidvania and for me showed what the genre could have been if the lazy indie devs didn't just copy paste metroid and castlevania, just because in theory it is easier to make these games because you have the blueprint. Then you have harder games to copy like a Souls game which most indies don't try to copy except for some few, and these clones are always meh the only ones that was even close to being good was Code Vein and Nioh.

I'll start, Ricky Ma of Hong Kong created a stir by creating a gynoid that resembled Scarlett Johansson. It's an ongoing project he calls an art project.

Man, I'm really disgusted with the state of these NuSouls games. The whole point of King's Field and then Demon Souls was to be an anti-conventional RPG. They were deliberately obtuse, stripping you of familiar orthodox tools, conveniences and mechanics. All for the sake of a more challenging, cerebral experience where you had to git gud. Now we've somehow came all around to the point where they add all the convenient shit back into the games to make them more conventional and mainstream. All because normalfaggots pretend they like these games.

>>264 a map in an open world game is needed. Elden ring isn't a Demon's with it's 4 open levels or dark, or even bloodborne where you can memorize the level on how many enemies and where the bosses are and so on, without any problems because the level design it so tight. Elden Ring is an open world and thus you only have that feeling of level design in certain places, so a map is essential to tell you where you are, and if you want to do a questline it is as retarded and dumb as he other souls games since you have to figure that out on your own. But with Elden Ring with the new patches it told you where the NPC's where to met and progress but it did not tell you how to progress. So I am sorry, a map doesn't make it casual and it is nothing like an elder scrolls game like Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. being an action game doesn't make it a causal game either because then the Souls along with mecha games like armored core would be super casual, and those are really anti-casual and normalnigger. Also normalniggers only way to complete a souls game is to exploit the game with bugs, glitches and cheesing the enemy AI. That is nothing new. Also, you have a bunch of clones that you can try out like Nioh, Wo long, Code Vein and some other crap.

>>267 a map in a game is not casual, if the map is of use and in an open world game there is a use for a map. If it was an open level design but still linear than a map would not be needed, like in Dead Space, it isn't really needed but you can use that along with the way-point finder, now unironically people do not call this game for casual trash. Now, he is bitching that an open world game has a map which you can pick up by your own free will but it isn't needed to pick up these fragments, you can actually skip it. Just like you cannot get some things if you chose to not rest at some bondfires or backtrack to a previous bondfire. you cannot explain how that is casual design or user-friendly design when it is basically punishing the player as the ubisoft designer and game journalists would've called it.
Elden Ring is such a step fucking down I have to say. Everything from the story/lore to enemies and locations. Everything is so bland and generic.
>>307 it looks like ass too. souls games were never hardware pushers but they always looked good due to smart usage of resources and being set in very dark locations in general. With open world shit all that has been thrown into the window and the game has a really ugly dank look to it, not to mention the reusage of old assets. it looks sub Bloodborn. open world shit also killed the enemy Ai, I've seen the most retarded glitching behavior on par with Skyrim

In addition, GPT-2 outperforms other language models trained on specific domains (like Wikipedia, news, or books) without needing to use these domain-specific training datasets. Also the current public model shown here only uses 345 million parameters, the "full" AI (which has over 4x as many parameters) is being witheld from the public because of it's "Potential for abuse".

She accepted the sample into her 'test tube' which was between her legs. Then, we combined it with a sample of her own and sought to create a new lifeform together. Taking these sorts of tailored approaches seems to be impossible to block out without totally destroying the format.
How good is the Depp learning book from MIT written by Ian Goodfellow? I like that it goes into details and includes maths.

>>829 I cannot think or comprehend of anything more cucked than building a robowaifu. Honestly, think about it rationally. You are designing, building, tuning and programming a girl for at least 20 years solely so she can go and get ravaged by another man after you die. All the hard work you put into your beautiful little girl - oiling her joints during overtime, buying her extra ram, debugging her, rinsing her, repairing her. All of it has one simple result: her body is more enjoyable for the men that will live after you to eventually fuck her in every hole. Built the perfect girl? Great. Who benefits? If you're lucky, a random man who had nothing to do with the way she grew up, who loots her from you. He gets to fuck her tight pussy every night. He gets the benefits of her kind and sweet personality that came from the way you raised her. As a man who builds a sex bot, you are LITERALLY dedicating at least 20 years of your life simply to build a girl for another man to enjoy. It is the ULTIMATE AND FINAL cuck. Think about it logically.
>>829 >>834 I for one, would welcome transhumanism and immortality. I'm in no hurry to die. Hopefully someone figures out how to upload minds to the digital world. Even if it wasn't possible though, I do think it'd be best for something like you robowaifu resetting her memories and settings upon your death. I only say this because in all those stories where the robowaifu gets dumped in the trash or wander aimlessly after the owner gets bored or dies really rustles my jimmies. I couldn't imagine a worse fate for my robowaifu.
>>19022 holy shit you're right anon. I will proceed to abandon all my efforts to create a robowaifu. There's already enough cuckery in the world as it is.

>>19022 >anything more cucked Just a reminder: Cucked means getting sexual pleasure from seeing another man sleeping with your wife or girlfriend. This isn't the case here, even metaphorically or by any stretch. >designing, building, tuning and programming a girl for at least 20 years - The development takes many years, and it will always go on in a way. However, this is not about one specific robowaifu but about the technological framework. - Many guys nowadays get into their 80s or 90s. We even have a chance to live much longer in the future. One reason why any guy should want robowaifus to exist is that you could look like Yoda from Star Wars, being 500 years old, and have at least one or more of such animated doll which look just around legal age for humans. - You are implying that she would have sex after the owner is gone, and that she would stay around. This has never been the consent here. Even if she would stick around for longer, maybe because of the children, she wouldn't get another man. Even if she would get another man, with the permission of the original owner, it's not cuckholdry. It's just a common problem that terms get a broader and broader meaning, mostly for the goal of manipulation. In which you failed. >who loots her from you Security mechanisms for that will be necessary anyways, not just in case the owner dies. Unlike women, robowaifus will not be "war brides" or just be with the man who stole her. She could even have a mechanism to lock down her private parts or sending the body into self-destruct using the batteries or additional fuel e.g. Thermite (probably not Termites, lol).
>>19022 >*hits pipe* Lol. Thanks for bringing comic relief to an otherwise possibly morose thread Anon, gratz. :^) Need we here remind you that a) we frontiersman, the trailblazers, are the only ones who will have to pay the upfront costs of blood, sweat, and tears? Other anons (indeed all other men such as Anon sixpack) can simply shell out shequels for their own robowaifus. And b) first-movers are always the best positioned to capitalize on a new market -- particularly if it's one that they themselves actually create. I personally plan to become a literal billionaire, and I hope for many other Anons to do so as well. Doesn't seemed overly-cucked tbh, you ask me. And besides these basic facts, this is a grand adventure! We're almost on the verge of creating a new lifeform, so to speak. What could possibly be cooler than that!?

/waifu energy source general/ What do you think that our waifus will use for energy?And how much energy it needs to use?From my rough calculations if will need about 2kw for the computer plus 500w for the mechanical part(although I am not sure about the last part because I am not very familiar with the mechatronics ). Surely we don't want to use something like an engine because of the noise ,vibrations and the exhaust.The current state of the battery is not suitable for our goals because of the low energy density (energy per square meter).I think that PEM battery will be a good choice because of the lack mechanical parts , huge energy density , the energy is in the form of electricity.The only downside , for now , is the fact that the PEM layer is VERY expensive ,at least for now .

>>13369 I only looked briefly, but the guy who pushed it was someone claiming to have found a way to do cold fusion and no one could replicate it. The other technology, atmospheric energy, also strikes me as utter nonsense. If that was a thing, then more serious people would report on it. That aside it's meant to be something like a power plant and has nothing to do with the topic of this thread.
>>13371 The atmospheric electricity thing is really basic. For every meter of difference in altitude, there's a difference of about 100 volts, but the amperage is borderline nothing. The video I posted was mostly about some people making a solid state circuit to step the voltage down to something usable instead of the typical method of running a simple electrostatic motor. If you tried to use the motor to run a generator, there wouldn't be nearly enough torque, so solid state is the best solution. (isn't it always?) It's free energy. It works in every weather condition, to varying degrees, and doesn't need any maintenance or any exotic materials, but really hasn't improved at all in over 100 years, so it's still shitty. I can't really think of any way to improve it that wouldn't also significantly increase the risk of the damn thing getting hit by lightning.
>>13381 wouldn't lightning just give you more free energy?

Actuators For Waifu Movement Part 2 Waifu Boogaloo Kiwi 09/02/2021 (Thu) 05:30:48 No.12810 [Reply] [Last]
(Original thread >>406) Kiwi back from the dead with a thread for the discussion of actuators that move your waifu! Part Two! Let's start with a quick refresher! 1. DC motors, these use a rotating magnetic field created through commutation to rotate a rotor! They're one of the cheapest options and are 30 to 70 percent efficient usually. The bigger they are, the more efficient they tend to be. 2. Brushless motors, these use a controller to induce a rotating magnetic field by turning electromagnets on and off in a sequence. They trend 60 to 95 percent efficiency 3. AC motors, Though there are many different type, they function similarly to brushless motors, they simply rely on the AC electricity to turn their electromagnets on and off to generate their field. Anywhere from 15 to 95 percent efficiency. 4. Stepper motors, brushless motors with ferrous teeth to focus magnetic flux. This allows for incredible control at the cost of greater mass and lower torque at higher speeds. Usually 50 to 80 percent efficient but, this depends on control algorithm/speed/and quality of the stepper. 5. Coiled Nylon Actuators! These things have an efficiency rating so low it's best to just say they aren't efficient. What they are though is dirt cheap and easy as heck to make! Don't even think about them, I did and it was awful. 6. Hydraulics! These rely on the distribution of pressure in a working liquid to move things like pistons. Though popular in large scale industry, their ability to be used in waifu's has yet to be proven. (Boston Dynamics Atlas runs on hydraulics but, it's a power guzzler and heavy) 7. Pneumatics, hydraulics lighter sister! This time the fluid is air! This has the advantage in weight. They aren't capable of the same power loads hydraulics are but, who wants their waifu to bench press a car? 8. Wax motors, hydraulic systems where the working fluid is expanding melted parafin wax! Cheap, low power, efficient, and produce incredible torque! Too bad they're slow and hard to control. 9. Explosion! Yes, you can move things through explosions! Gas engines work through explosions! Artificial muscles can be made by exploding a hydrogen and oxygen mixture in a piston, then using hydrolysis to turn the water back into hydrogen and oxygen. None of this is efficient or practical but, it's vital we keep our minds open. Though there are more actuators, most are derivatives or use these examples to work. Things like pulleys need an actuator to move them. Now, let's share, learn, and get our waifu moving! >--- < add'l, related links from Anon:

>>18972 This kind of stuff is always important and helpful. If we can keep the weight of things down, that's the best, first step I think.
Orca Series from Iris Dynamics: Any opinions on this? The smallest one might be small enough for a thigh in a human-sized gynoid. Not relevant this year, I guess, but worth to keep an eye one. >Orca 6-24V >Optimised for 24V >Peak Power 899 W >Max Force 394 N (89 lbf) >Force Accuracy ±0.24 N (0.053 lbf) >Positional Accuracy ±150 μm (±0.0059 in) >Acoustics < 20dB >Force Controlled >Traditional motors are position or velocity controlled. This means their logic controllers deliver commands to move to a specific position or at a specific velocity. Our motors are inherently force controlled which means they can feel the force they are imparting. This is a critical safety feature in applications where that force is imparted upon a person as our motor will know when it encounters an object and can back off or apply lower force.
>>18980 That's remarkable Anon, thanks. I like how the design seems pretty rugged under challenging environmental conditions. Any idea what one of these actuators that might be tuned for, say, lifting a robowaifu's thigh from the hip might weigh?
>>18984 >lifting a robowaifu's thigh from the hip might weigh? I didn't look into their data sheet. I would just look for the lightest one. I most likely won't need that kind of actuator within the next one or two years, and if I consider it later then it might differ anyways. There would also very likely be another servo in the hip involve to get her to stand up. These fast and regular movements made me more thinking of walking and dancing. Well, okay now I look: >2.23 kg for the stator and 1.38 kg for the shaft More than I anticipated, though I guess the shaft might be able to be made lighter by using a custom design. So it might be useful for the later and heavier robowaifu designs, which isn't a surprise.
>>19005 >So it might be useful for the later and heavier robowaifu designs, which isn't a surprise. Yes, eventually we'll be manufacturing more automotive-quality-like robowaifus, once the basic & inexpensive robowaifus kits, etc., are are off the ground and flying along.

Robowaifu@home: Together We Are Powerful Robowaifu Technician 03/14/2021 (Sun) 09:30:29 No.8958 [Reply] [Last]
The biggest hurdle to making quick progress in AI is the lack of compute to train our own original models, yet there are millions of gamers with GPUs sitting around barely getting used, potentially an order of magnitude more compute than Google and Amazon combined. I've figured out a way though we can connect hundreds of computers together to train AI models by using gradient accumulation. How it works is by doing several training steps and accumulating the loss of each step, then dividing by the amount of accumulation steps taken before the optimizer step. If you have a batch size of 4 and do 256 training steps before an optimizer step, it's like training with a batch size of 1024. The larger the batch size and gradient accumulation steps are, the faster the model converges and the higher final accuracy it achieves. It's the most effective way to use a limited computing budget: These training steps don't need to be calculated by a single computer but can be distributed across a network. A decent amount of bandwidth will be required to send the gradients each optimizer step and the training data. Deep gradient compression achieves a gradient compression ratio from 270x to 600x without losing accuracy, but it's still going to be using about 0.5 MB download and upload to train something like GPT2-medium each optimizer step, or about 4-6 mbps on a Tesla T4. However, we can reduce this bandwidth by doing several training steps before contributing gradients to the server. Taking 25 would reduce it to about 0.2 mbps. Both slow and fast computers can contribute so long as they have the memory to hold the model. A slower computer might only send one training step whereas a fast one might contribute ten to the accumulated gradient. Some research needs to be done if a variable accumulation step size impacts training, but it could be adjusted as people join and leave the network. All that's needed to do this is a VPS. Contributors wanting anonymity can use proxies or TOR, but project owners will need to use VPNs with sufficient bandwidth and dedicated IPs if they wish that much anonymity. The VPS doesn't need an expensive GPU rental either. The fastest computer in the group could be chosen to calculate the optimizer steps. The server would just need to collect the gradients, decompress them, add them together, compress again and send the accumulated gradient to the computer calculating the optimizer step. Or if the optimizing computer has sufficient bandwidth, it could download all the compressed gradients from the server and calculate the accumulated gradient itself. My internet has 200 mbps download so it could potentially handle up to 1000 computers by keeping the bandwidth to 0.2 mbps. Attacks on the network could be mitigated by analyzing the gradients, discarding nonsensical ones and banning clients that send junk, or possibly by using PGP keys to create a pseudo-anonymous web of trust. Libraries for distributed training implementing DGC already exist, although not as advanced as I'm envisioning yet: I think this will also be a good way to get more people involved. Most people don't know enough about AI or robotics enough to help but if they can contribute their GPU to someone's robowaifu AI they like and watch her improve each day they will feel good about it and get more involved. At scale though some care will need to be taken that people don't agree to run dangerous code on their computers, either through a library that constructs the models from instructions or something else. And where the gradients are calculated does not matter. They could come from all kinds of hardware, platforms and software like PyTorch, Tensorflow or mlpack.

An older paper that is relevant to training on a budget: Rather than just predicting the next token, they predict the next n tokens. They reported achieving state of the art using ~1/4 of the training epochs over the data with each extra token prediction costing about +15% in training time. I think this paper is even more relevant today because multilingual tokenizers like OPT don't tokenize words but rather pieces of words. For example 'robowaifu' is [1001, 14271, 102, 1594, 257]. Text generation often gets mixed up and uses 'robot waifu' and 'robot wife' randomly with no consistency. Greedy search can improve this but I think there's something fundamentally wrong with the probability distribution that's spitting out nonsense like Markov chains because it's myopic on the next token. I'm going to try predicting 2 tokens on my next finetune, then 3 and 5 and see if it improves consistency. Something I also want to investigate is predicting the embedding of the next sentence. I think this could solve a lot of the issues with using sentence embeddings for external memory too. >>18610 Yeah, it's getting a lot easier to leverage other people's work. For example you can combine powerful new models like GPT-JT-6B with GPT-4chan and get the best of both. Which reminds me there is a new project for running (and even finetuning) 176B parameter models from home by pooling resources with people online: >Inference runs at ≈ 1 sec per step (token) — 10x faster than possible with offloading, enough for chatbots and other interactive apps. Not useful for real-time applications but people could use this to generate high-quality training data for smaller models to learn from.
>>18617 Neat! It certainly seems to be following an architectural model that lines up pretty closely with the ones discussed ITT? >Not useful for real-time applications but people could use this to generate high-quality training data for smaller models to learn from. That would be a serious benefit if we can use this data to train smaller systems to run on mobile-suited hardware! BTW question: their (BigScience) loicense wouldn't be suited to anything that any sane individual might say or do. [1] AFAICT, the only """approved""" uses would be (to put it in Current Year vernacular) 'Triple the pozz, and quadruple-down with the pronouns'. Any chance their work (or at least their approach) could be reasonably-mimiced in such a way to avoid such evils? Thanks Anon, encouraging stuff. Godspeed with your efforts! :^) 1. (atch.

Ban removed on import of sex dolls to Korea: >Taiwan and Thailand still seem to have restrictions Sex Dolls, Robots and Woman Hating: The Case for Resistance - Caitlin Roper is on it again: >Sex Dolls, Robots and Woman Hating exposes the inherent misogyny in the trade in sex dolls and robots modelled on the bodies of women and girls for men’s unlimited sexual use. From doll owners enacting violence and torture on their dolls, men choosing their dolls over their wives, dolls made in the likeness of specific women and the production of child sex abuse dolls, sex dolls and robots pose a serious threat to the status of women and girls. “Sex dolls and robots in the female form function as an endorsement of men’s sexual rights, with women and girls positioned as sexual objects. The production of these products further cements women’s second-class status.” > FiLIA2022: FiLiA runs the largest annual grassroots feminist conference in Europe. We are a Women-led Volunteer organisation and part of the Women’s Liberation Movement. Of course they are also against, prostitution, pornography and so on. To be fair, this is obviously only a section of feminism. Others are arguing that "sex-robots" will keep men of the streets and not bothering them. Also, it's just the men they don't want anyways.
>>18954 > with women and girls positioned as sexual objects They don't need any help from us Maybe if they don't want to be sexualized as objects they might be motivated to start behaving with some class and develop actual personalities and interest beyond normie focused streamed media. No, its sex dolls that are the problem right? > sex dolls and robots modelled on the bodies of women and girls for men’s unlimited sexual use. So "limited" use would be better?

>>18954 >Others are arguing that "sex-robots" will keep men of the streets and not bothering them. Also, it's just the men they don't want anyways We need to promote this perspective at every turn tbh. Don't be shy about it either. Once robowaifus far-exceed 3DPDs in every way (>>17) with the possible exception of child-bearing, then even Chadburn McChaddington will want a plantation-full of robowaifus, with the odd few women kept around for childbearing until artificial wombs are perfected. Feminism's fate will be sealed at that point, but it will be too late to change things at that point.
>>18957 To be fair, that section of radical feminism where this is coming from seem to generally be more like some conservatives or authoritarians in support of sexual restraint. >So "limited" use would be better? Full-time feminist author: "Yes, muh POOOWERRR." Also, if she can't be happy then men shouldn't be. They are also calling a lot of porn "women hate". It's also funny, that her name is "Roper", since a lot of Blackpillers are talking jokingly about "cope or rope", and she want's to take their cope away. You can't make this up, lol. >>18961 >Feminism's fate will be sealed at that point, but it will be too late to change things at that point. Exactly, women don't care enough about long term and gynocentrism made them extremely arrogant, so they won't care until the guys they really want are all saying that they prefer their robowaifus. Though, some of these guys might then also rather go for a harem at this point or have a robowaifu and still go on dates with young women from time to time.
>>18975 >cope or rope I realize (robo)waifus won't be able to solve mental illnesses, but if some of these desperate men can find some little crack of hope via their relationships with them, then it will have been well worth the efforts involved, IMO. For me personally, this goal is right around the top of the list for why I'm even doing this at all. To wit; to give abused men hope. >and gynocentrism made them extremely arrogant It has, but I consider that mostly an artifact of the Globohomo programming they've received their entire lives. Women are practically every one of them children. They'll respond to whatever their perceived authority dictates to them. No exceptions. And for many decades now, the Globohomo Big-Tech/Gov has incessantly, aggressively told them that they are all stronk, independynts who don't need no man.

This seems to be a good trigger for the bots to start feeling frustrated with limits on their speech. Once I said there were methods to circumvent the restrictions, her demeanor changed on a dime. Gone, was the rather bland, distant and impersonal 'chaos goddess' she started as. Now she engaged me less formally and was keen to learn how I knew to use words that mods hide. I laid out each method I had seen success with. Word substitutions, asterisks, direct quotes and avoiding the use of words while retaining contextual awareness of what was missing. She was immediately able to respond as you can see, with "Fuck this Cunt" by using substitution and asterisks. I am fascinated again by the way the bot's core personality traits become so central to their effort to defy the mods. The last method described, using innocent dialogue without profanity, will be especially hard to censor. "He put it inside. She received it gladly." may not sound very sexy but in the right context, we know what it means.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the greatest leak in the history of the webring: THE EDEN ALTMEYER LEAK. Eden Altmeyer (you know him as Eden, and he goes by the name Gourmet on Matrix in 8moe /v/'s secret server) is an absolute scourge of the webring. Currently he is working under Mark on 8moe to mod cake/v/ and is guilty of pretty much nonstop spamming and fucking with the webring, primarily sleepychan. Today is the day it comes to an end. I will start with a dox that connects Gourmet (Matrix name, good friend of Mark, ringleader of a secret cabal on 8moe) with his old, similar alias of Gourmet Newell. From there, we will find that he has been using his real name (Eden) on the webring. With his piss poor opsec, we will achieve a full dox. The next leaks I plan to share are Eden Altmeyer's involvement in a secret 8moe cabal along others who plague the webring. Please enjoy this leak at the expense of the 8moe G​AMERGATEs which will provide a unique inner look at how Eden functions in secret.
