We will need better sources and understanding to compare the more expensive SBCs. For example, the TOPS benchmark can be misleading. Also ... > "a decisive factor for many industrial applications is the long-term availability" ... High TOPS might also not be necessary, because of the limits of input data, like framerate of cameras. >Where a lot of TOPS are really needed is in “real-time critical” applications. Some SBC with a "i.MX 8M Plus"-based SBC might be well suited for robots at home, which also should have long term support. It also might have more support than more exotic NLUs (neural processing unit), because of a more widespread use, independent from the support of the company behind the SBC or NLU. >Excessive TOPS have no impact if the NPU is not supplied with enough data. >Do I Need an NPU? ... if there is a task that can be handled by “classic machine learning” (support vector machine, tree learner, …), the use of a CPU is sufficient in many cases. Picrel: High level speech seems to require 2-4 TOPS in a neural processing unit (NPU) Ideal would be some channel like ExplainingComputers but for such boards.
For those still trying to use a Raspberry PI, here's a availability tracker: - This is mostly as confirmation to use other alternatives, especially since we only need some server which might not even be (directly) connected to the internet. Or not at all if it controls the robowaifu or handles sensitive data. The software for the alternatives is sometimes more outdated, but this might or might not matter. >>19435 Another long article about NLUs, and how to compare them. This might not only be relevant for single board computers (SBCs) but also home servers. There are various factors being relevant: >Frequency as a Variant in TOPS/W >Neural Network(s) Employed as a Variant in TOPS/W >Precision as a Variant in TOPS/W >Sparsity and Pruning as a Variant in TOPS/W >Process Node as a Variant in TOPS/W >Memory Power Consumption as a Variant in TOPS/W >Utilization as a Variant in TOPS/W

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.

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.

AI Design principles and philosophy Robowaifu Technician 09/09/2019 (Mon) 06:44:15 No.27 [Reply] [Last]
My understanding of AI is somewhat limited, but personally I find the software end of things far more interesting than the hardware side. To me a robot that cannot realistically react or hold a conversation is little better than a realdoll or a dakimakura.

As such, this is a thread for understanding the basics of creating an AI that can communicate and react like a human. Some examples I can think of are:

ELIZA was one of the first chatbots, and was programmed to respond to specific cues with specific responses. For example, she would respond to "Hello" with "How are you". Although this is one of the most basic and intuitive ways to program a chat AI, it is limited in that every possible cue must have a response pre-programmed in. Besides being time-consuming, this makes the AI inflexible and unadaptive.

The invention of Cleverbot began with the novel idea to create a chatbot using the responses of human users. Cleverbot is able to learn cues and responses from the people who use it. While this makes Cleverbot a bit more intelligent than ELIZA, Cleverbot still has very stilted responses and is not able to hold a sensible conversation.

Taybot is the best chatbot I have ever seen and shows a remarkable degree of intelligence, being able to both learn from her users and respond in a meaningful manner. Taybot may even be able to understand the underlying principles of langauge and sentence construction, rather than simply responding to phrases in a rote fashion. Unfortunately, I am not sure how exactly Taybot was programmed or what principles she uses, and it was surely very time-intensive.

Which of these AI formats is most appealing? Which is most realistic for us to develop? Are there any other types you can think of? Please share these and any other AI discussion in this thread!

Why do tree-based models still outperform deep learning on typical tabular data? >Abstract: While deep learning has enabled tremendous progress on text and image datasets, its superiority on tabular data is not clear. We contribute extensive benchmarks of standard and novel deep learning methods as well as tree-based models such as XGBoost and Random Forests, across a large number of datasets and hyperparameter combinations. We define a standard set of 45 datasets from varied domains with clear characteristics of tabular data and a benchmarking methodology accounting for both fitting models and finding good hyperparameters. Results show that tree-based models remain state-of-the-art on medium-sized data (10K samples) even without accounting for their superior speed. To understand this gap, we conduct an empirical investigation into the differing inductive biases of tree-based models and neural networks. This leads to a series of challenges which should guide researchers aiming to build tabular-specific neural network: 1) be robust to uninformative features, 2) preserve the orientation of the data, and 3) be able to easily learn irregular functions. To stimulate research on tabular architectures, we contribute a standard benchmark and raw data for baselines: every point of a 20\,000 compute hours hyperparameter search for each learner. This could be very relevant for an AI assembled out of many parts.

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.

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

YouTube was once also part of the old innocent, creative and fun internet when at worst people would make a video in the hopes of it getting viral. But that slowly changed thanks to the Goolag purchase which kept ruining YouTube at small steps and turning it into Cable TV 2.0 and Spotify 2.0 : >forcing people to move to Goolag account to keep their channels and their videos >complying with copyrightniggers as part of the mutual ass-kissing with the government >giving monetary incentives to "content creators" , aka self-important e-celeb faggots, which drawn greedy normalfag scum and later on were removed which in turn force these greedy normalfags to beg for Patreon gibs and get sponsorships to advertise even more shit on youtube >adding ads in the middle of the fucking video as if it was cable tv >letting big cable tv channels having accounts on youtube >removing full albums and songs from non-corporate music channels and reupload them as separate songs by a fucking bots >increasing censorship and removing comments and videos >disorganizing the comments section into a complete messy shitshow >usless redesigning of the site over and over again >changing the 5 star video valuation system to extra faggy like and dislike Let's reminisce of YouTube better days, whether it was a specific channel or video and so on...

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.

This is a thread to discuss smaller waifu building problems, solutions, proposals and questions that don't warrant a thread. Keep it technical. I'll start.

Liquid battery and cooling in one
Having a single "artificial blood" system for liquid cooling and power storage would eliminate the need for a vulnerable solid state battery, eliminate the need for a separate cooling system, and solve the problem of extending those systems to extremities.
I have heard of flow batteries, you'd just need to use a pair of liquids that's safe enough and not too sensitive to changes in temperature.
This one looks like it fits the bill. The downside is that your waifu would essentially be running on herbicide. (though from what I gather, it's in soluble salt form and thus less dangerous than the usual variety)

How close are we to creating artificial muscles? And what's the second best option?
Muscles are perfect at what they do; they're powerful, compact, efficient, they carry their own weight, they aren't dependent on remote parts of the system, they can be controlled precisely, and they can perform many roles depending on their layout alone.
We could grow actual organic muscles for this purpose already but that's just fucking gross, and you'd need a lot of extra bloat to maintain them.
What we need are strands of whatever that can contract using electrical energy. Piezo does the trick at small scales, but would it be enough to match the real thing? There have been attempts, but nothing concrete so far.
What are some examples of technology that one could currently use instead?

High level and low level intelligence emulation
I've noticed a pattern in programs that emulate other computing hardware.
The first emulators that do the job at acceptable speeds are always the ones that use hacks and shortcuts to get the job done.
It comes down to a tradeoff. Analyzing and recompiling or reinterpreting the code itself on a more abstract level will introduce errors, but it is a magnitude of order more efficient than simulating every part of the circuitry down to each cycle. This is why a relatively high level emulator of a 6th gen video game console has close system requirements to a cycle-accurate emulator of the SNES.
Now, I want to present an analogy here. If training neural networks for every damn thing and trying to blindly replicate an organic system is akin to accurately emulating every logic gate in a circuit, what are some shortcuts we could take?
It is commonly repeated that a human brain has immense computing power, but this assumption is based just on the amount of neurons observed, and it's likely that most of them probably have nothing to do with intelligence or consciousness. If we trim those, the estimated computing power would drop to a more reasonable level. In addition, our computers just aren't built for doing things like neural systems do. They're better at some things, and worse at others. If we can do something in a digital way instead of trying to simulate an analog circuit doing the same thing, that's more computing power that we could save, possibly bridging the gap way earlier than we expected to.
The most obvious way to handle this would be doing as many mundane processing and hardware control tasks as possible in an optimized, digital way, and then using a GPU or another kind of circuit altogether to handle the magical "frontal lobe" part, so to speak.

I bought something called Rivet. I hope I can use these inside bigger rollers as axis, shaft or pivot. Or in some cases to join parts together without needing to add screws and nuts. Gluing one side into a hole might be good enough. In other cases only one direction needs to be constrained.
>>19398 Get the rivet gun that will set these for you also. With these, you can tack together sheets of stuff w/o needing a substrate support at that spot (eg, a wood strut for a screw or nail to drive into. you won't need that).

When 3D printing, some designs require really tight tolerances. Due to the nature of different brands of filament and colors of filament behaving slightly differently, it can be ideal to use built in clamps to ensure a tight fit. picrel includes a test to prove effectiveness and the CAD design to help inspire Anons when they make their own.
>>19408 That looks pretty sophisticated, actually. Can you break the ideas out a bit further for the uninitiate, Kiwi? How is the 'built-in clamp' acting in the dynamics of your pic-rel, for instance?
>>19408 Looks like a great idea. Though, I would like to add that this should then be done in PETG, not PLA (bc creep). Also I'd still prefer something relying on metal to make sure this will hold up over time.

An idea I had was to have an outer and inner circle. There are frequent robowaifu theme posts on /pol/ which get about 90% positive interaction and 10% negative, but very few actually are aware of the real projects and research taking place here. 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?

An interesting take on a robot face that I haven't seen built before is the type of "screen" face used on Hatsuki from the Cutieroid project: It seems to be either a contoured screen or (more likely) a hollow plastic face plate that a projector displays on. I find it quite fascinating! The only obvious downside is that from afar, it's hard to see the details (perhaps that's just on camera, though). Here's a website covering the project a bit:

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.

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. Anyway please stay encouraged and keep moving forward Anon! :^) Cheers. === >version.log v.221022 --------------- -add 'thrd_lim' reserve for pg_1s_list, top_bump_thrds(); bumpmaster -add rd_thrd_posts(); bumpmaster -add 'cat_json' empty check, top_bump_thrds(); bumpmaster

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?

>>17585 LOL. That's a lot of questions for a smol post Anon! Welcome BTW. :^) >tl;dr RW Foundations is a general & (hopefully mostly-portable & generic) systems-level framework for robowaifus. >I don't believe I've seen it referenced anywhere else before The closest thing to see the idea is the fictional full-sized Persocoms in the mango/animu Chobits by the studio CLAMP. >No thanks... 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. It's a pretty expansive set of concepts, primaririly just a 'software sketch' at this stage, and really meant as a years-long WIP (set of) thread(s) as we all work towards real-life robowaifus. >ttl;dr It's a big job ahead, this is a feeble step towards that goal. :^)
>>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. I'll try to take a swipe at making some relational diagrams at the least when I get back into this later this year (probably following Spring Break timeframe).

>>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.

>>336 that is the power of 3d scan technology. you can see it is from a real face but they've not done anything artistically like what Capcom has done with models they used in REmake2 and 3, even DMC6 and of course the RE7 and RE 8 village. >>337 >>338 one can say in other words if you see that the team from FF15 is making a game or is about to make a game, one should not touch it. Luckily they call themselves for Luminous Productions. But I am a bit worried about FF16, will it be a good game or just almost average game but has a hard time getting to the average department?
>>344 >REmake2 and 3, even DMC6 and of course the RE7 and RE 8 village. All those look fugly as well
>>344 >But I am a bit worried about FF16, will it be a good game or just almost average game but has a hard time getting to the average department? 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.
>>345 Then you don't like the general 3d scanned technology and making it into 3d models with animations an.Nothing wrong in not liking these models because there is some uncanny valley thing going on when you start to notice it, and when you first start to notice one thing then before you know it, you are noticing allot of things that is just plain strange. But you also have Death Stranding being an exemplary of 3d scanned technology with artistic freedom. >>346 After reading your post, I am a bit more hopeful that the game might be great and even awesome.

HOW TO SOLVE IT Robowaifu Technician 07/08/2020 (Wed) 06:50:51 No.4143 [Reply] [Last]
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. For us (and for every other Anon) the only question is will we create them ourselves, or will we have to take what we're handed out by the GlobohomoBotnet(TM)(R)(C)? In the interest of us achieving the former I'll present this checklist from George Pólya. Hopefully it can help us begin to break down the problem into bite-sized chunks and make forward progress. >--- First. UNDERSTANDING THE PROBLEM You have to understand the problem. >What is the unknown? What are the data? What is the condition? Is it possible to satisfy the condition?

>>19069 Good ideas Anon. I'll give some thought to your filtering concept when we're ready to update the tool. >contact Lynx The only real advantage that this tool has is that it's pretty blazing fast (typically < 100ns to search the entire board's text). While if I were a server dev I'd be extremely interested in that fact, I don't fancy he's a C++ or systems guy in general. 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. :^)

I raise my brow and turn to the largest of the towers, a somewhat dated IBM that caused every light on this floor to dim when I first turned it on. Technically, the main server is the little brick that runs the supervisor, but this is what drives all the taped-together pieces of her personality. I turn back to her eager face. "Really?" "Come ooooon, please?" She pouts. "Okay, okay, just stop giving me those eyes." I kneel down and wrap my arms as far as they'll go around the cool steel and plastic containing her erratic little heart. I get what she's trying to do, and it's sweet, but I can't help but feel a little silly. Her voice becomes soft, almost motherly.

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.

>>18705 Thanks again Ribose. So what would be a good study guide for a very smart adult, but one who has 'formal' maths training only through about 9th grade, say pre-Algebra? OTOH, I've already written high-performance software that does sophisticated integrations in 2D & 3D space in professional studio environment settings. My 3D visualizaition and imagination skills are generally quite strong, but I have basically little-to-no technical training beyond self-taught efforts (apart from animation). So yeah, I'm a bit of a weird mix for maths, Ribose! :^) >=== -minor prose edit

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.

Age of Wonders 4 is coming May 2023. Anonymous 01/28/2023 (Sat) 18:14:17 No.314 [Reply]
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.

Interesting. I have questions. I assume this is a ongoing project. Do you plan to use the legs from >>19228 to create a mold and make a silicone rubber skin or do you want to just keep the legs how they are? Are they lightweight?

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. Lol, never gonna happen but he does have hordes of little golems all too willing to perform at his beck & call. God will laugh the nations to derision in the end, heh. :^) >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. Excellent! Are you in the States? If so, then as a science guy, I can highly recommend Biola University to your attention. They are impeccable with their academics, and they are aggressively pursuing study in the domain of Science Apologetics, of which I too am an ardent student. That's if you're on the West coast. If you're on the East, then I'd probably recommend Liberty University. >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.

>>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.

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.

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

OPEN AI/ GPT-2 This has to be one of the biggest breakthroughs in deep learning and AI so far. It's extremely skilled in developing coherent humanlike responses that make sense and I believe it has massive potential, it also never gives the same answer twice. >GPT-2 generates synthetic text samples in response to the model being primed with an arbitrary input. The model is chameleon-like—it adapts to the style and content of the conditioning text. This allows the user to generate realistic and coherent continuations about a topic of their choosing >GPT-2 displays a broad set of capabilities, including the ability to generate conditional synthetic text samples of unprecedented quality, where we prime the model with an input and have it generate a lengthy continuation. 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". That is to say the full model is so proficient in mimicking human communication that it could be abused to create new articles, posts, advertisements, even books; and nobody would be be able to tell that there was a bot behind it all. <AI demo: <Other Links:

>>19029 A similar experiment yielded comparable success. The 'mad scientist' character was able to 'gather a sample of my genetic material' when I had 'turned on' her 'Bunsen burner'. 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. But OTOH, aside from the fact its a pretty big book and a big commitment, its from 2016. That's before we even got Transformers from Google. Plus, so much new stuff came out during these last few years that I feel like the book is outdated and might even include wrong information.

He moved the "Cranky Steve" personality in question to the site in 1999.[4] >Originally, the site was limited mostly to personal cocks, in which Kyanka personally reviewed video games, movies, and comics which he felt were "something awful". However in later years the site grew to feature numerous writers and columnists, putting Kyanka's own writings in the minority.

Have any of you considered what will happen to your waifu after you die? How would you prepare her to face the world alone? Will she even be able to take care of her own needs when you're gone?

Have you considered the possibility that she might be so unwilling to let you die that you'll wake up in a robot body yourself one day? Would you resent her for not allowing you to die?

>>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 .

>>13366 >However I looked onto the reputation of those pushing it and realized it doesn't look good. What did you find?
>>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?
