What a crazy piece of chipmusic history you dug up there. Thanks!
Pretty solid video editing, too wink

It's a pity though that the site feels so neglected. Still using Flash players in 2021. Spam stays up for days. Which mods are even still active?

Maybe an option could also be to convert to a more reddit-style single board. With the current post rate it doesn't really make sense to have all these sub-forums, and I believe it's also one of the things that might be putting off potential users who aren't used to traditional forums anymore.

Yup, still here. I hate all these commercial walled gardens so where else would I go.

Oh hell yeah! That's how I like my space: hypnotic like a pulsar and darker than a black hole. Fantastic release.

Yes, it should work, as long as you use TiLP for data transfer (not TI-Connect!).

Thanks, very clear. Can you skew/weigh probabilities in FMOD?

I wish I had access to a more powerful programming language to refine the lead algorithm.

Bintracker is literally a Scheme interpreter, so you can pretty much do anything with it. It's very much unfinished at the moment, but source is available if you're feeling lucky big_smile

Yeah, I'm mostly interested in the algorithm behind it. Basically just collecting ideas for this tracker... thing I'm building. You could probably run that kind of algorithm on it, though not in realtime (yet). At the moment support is very low-level, so I'm thinking about possible high-level abstractions.

That's quite a neat experiment. Any plans for publishing the source code, perhaps?

a) 7 out of 10 tunes I want to cover are demoscene music, which in general is on public domain licence. I don't think I need any additional licences for these.

a) because demoscene is PD,

Quite the opposite, nearly all demoscene output is All Rights Reserved, and in fact many demosceners won't be pleased about having their works exploited like this. You should absolutely talk to the original authors before doing this. I'm sure folks will be open to discussion, though.

Honestly I've heard a lot of people are turned away from cm.o by sort of an "old-head gatekeeper" vibe from a lot of members, so I stopped posting to try to help with that.

edit: Also just deleted a four year old post with a homophobic slur and a mod quoting it and saying "careful" instead of deleting it, so I totally get why people don't feel super welcome here

Well, that "old-head" thing has been thrown around since the early days of cmo. I never really got it, thb. Maybe I'm part of the problem? I don't think so. I might be an old-head now, but I certainly wasn't when I joined the forum.

Ironically one thing that I believe enforced that notion was when cmo started to take a tough stance on homophobia and such (which I was super happy about back then and still am). Remember, that was way before CoCs and such became a thing. Using "gay" in a derogatory sense was commonplace back then, especially among younger folks.

Anyway, the ship has definitely sailed, I'm afraid. Forums are simply not a thing that folks in their late teens/early 20s use nowadays. It's just seen as an akward and obsolete form of communication. Basically forums are the new mailing lists yikes Sad, yes, but that's how it goes.

Other than that, well, maybe not using Flash players in 2020 might help.

Holy crap. This is so incredibly strong. Perhaps the best Pulselooper album to date.

Two big fat thumbs up for this. Will have a lot of fun with this once I'm reunited with my C= gear.

I believe even just deleting the email address (and whatever other identifying info is stored on cm's side) should be enough to satisfy the GDPR requirements. Posts and even user name are public information so they aren't covered by GDPR (obligatory disclaimer: I am not a lawyer). Other than that I fully agree. Chances of this ever being enforced are very low but better be safe than sorry.
