Living Room / Re: DC on Discord :O
« on: February 08, 2019, 02:35 AM »
Seems like the best approach would be to create a discord<->irc bridge bot so conversations on either show up on both places. That way you avoid splitting the audience between both platforms (or you end up with even less people to talk to).

We had a Discord<>IRC Bridge (The remains of that are still on the Discord server in #donationcoder-on-irc) but it seemed completely pointless paying for it to stay online (VPS) on the basis that the only person who ever talks on the DC IRC recently, is the forum bot, lol.

Considering we have a fairly large community of people, it surprises me that not that many want to come and chat in real-time about various topics :(

Honestly, I'd prefer Discord to be the option over IRC (more modern features, always connected, etc etc), but in all honesty...if everybody chose IRC for DC...I would be happy anyway...I'd just like to see more interaction between members of the community XD


I changed my mind and added the bridge...now it doesn't matter if you're on IRC or Discord...We can see you from either end!  :D

because nobody ever talks on the DC IRC
I'd want to write on IRC, but I can't, as by default the 'voice' flag is off, so I can't even ask there to turn it on... :-[

Seriously? Nobody turned that off?! LOL

I'll do it now!

Android Apps / Re: android app keyboard
« on: January 18, 2019, 04:51 PM »
I cant yet figure out how to easily change (already chosen) language keyboards in it. This is very intuitive and clear in Gboard (long press on spacebar). Autocorrect in both seem to be able to cope well with changing languages on the fly, even within a sentence (I often end up typing Denglish, a mix of German and English).

I love the multilingual option within GBoard, even if it does mean I send random italian words in the middle of english sentences, when I'm paying no attention lol.

Unity is at it once again it seems.  Perhaps they are prepping to release their own (worse) version of SoS or something, so had to think of a way to kill off competition.  Either way, it's nice of Improbable to be giving financial assistance to developers affected by this (and other help such as porting) whilst they try to resolve the issue.

Nothing really nice of them to be doing... as you stated unity is looking to clear the field, which would include their operations.  You see companies provide help to developers that are affected quite a bit.  I remember MS coming into a contract to help get it going on .NET when .NET was a new tech in order to steal a client from the competition.  Borland wasn't looking, so lost a lucrative contract when they moved away from Delphi.  Earlier, Borland had done the same to get a different contract that I was on.


Sorry, I should have pointed out, Improbable are the owners of SoS (the main thing affected), and they are providing financial assistance to other devs affected by Unity screwing them over.  Unity has taken the "f**k you...deal with it...not our problem" stance.

Unity Engine games developed with SpatialOS' cloud-based multiplayer Game Development Kit (GDK) are now in violation of Unity's terms of service, according to SpatialOS maker Improbable. The decision imperils the operation of many in-development game projects, including some that have already been released to the public.

Since its open beta release in 2017 (in partnership with Google), SpatialOS has allowed developers to easily integrate mass-scale multiplayer into their games by running a persistent version of the game in the cloud. But Improbable now says that a recent change in Unity's terms of service means the SpatialOS is essentially blocked from working with the Unity Engine.

The newly updated clause 2.4 of the Terms of Service now specifically excludes "managed service running on cloud infrastructure" which "install or execute the Unity Runtime on the cloud or a remote server." Though the terms of service were changed on December 5, Improbable says Unity confirmed directly to them this week that the update "specifically disallow services like Improbable’s to function with their engine. This was previously freely possible in their terms, as with other major engines."

Something like this may work:

https://www.thewindo...tup-programs-windows <----- this site will complain if you have AdBlock, but it's basically a "Startup Program Delay Timer" thing, so Google should help you find an alternative, if needed!

Delay the startup of ReLive by about...5 minutes? (Sufficient time to get other stuff sorted)

Once that is done, create something quick and dirty that will open up on of your shared folders before ReLive tries to establish its connection (set it as a startup task with no delay).

I worked out (messily) a way to get my N.A.N.Y. entry into a (I hope correct) template.

That was after spending a bit of time trying to find out where to source the official template from.

For future reference, where do you keep such things?

Thanks, Stephen!  :Thmbsup:

Generally, when the site goes down like that, it's cause mouser has pressed the wrong button on something ;)

Sometimes though it can just be a small hiccough at the datacenter, causing the network to lose connection for a few moments.

Thanks for getting back to me.
In the import files list in my screenshot, you can see several mp3 files I've imported. Each is for either one word or a short phrase.
To get to the state you see in the screenshot, I:
1. Imported the media files
2. Typed a native phrase
3. Typed a Foreign phrase
4. Highlighted  "vietnamese_and_you.mp3 in the import media list
5. Clicked "Add To List.

I was expecting to see info for "Track" and "File" filled in, in the relevant columns after step 5.
I was expecting that I'd be able to click on the arrowhead to the left of the "and you" line in the list and the mp3 would play after step 5.

Maybe your program doesn't work like this, I don't know and was asking.
Thanks
Tony

Ahh...I see what you mean.  AM only fills in the track and time info when you have a track playing.  This is purely because it needs a track to be playing in order to know what you want to add, and the time to add to it.  The "Arrow" you mention, isn't anything I have coded myself - it's just a part of the dataGrid you see the info in - that arrow simply selects the line (think of it basically like an Excel file) - It's not a play button  :P  There is no way (at least...none that I know of) to turn that into a play button.  I'd be happy to look though.

I'm actually coding on AM in my spare time as I am having to focus on jobs that are putting money in my pocket (a man has to eat) - so I can't promise any sort of timeline, but I can promise that I will look into it as soon as I can!

Hi Stephen, just started trying out your program - looking interesting!
Rather than have long audio file(s), I have very short individual audio files for single words and phrases. I imported about 20 or so files.
I'm having difficulty getting the audio set up ... the only way I seem to be able to get the name of the audio file into the list under "File" is by typing it, and typing the time as 00:00. This can't be right because having done that, if I click on the what looks like a play button at left of the list, nothing happens.

Would it be possible to be able to highlight a media file from the "import media" list and get it entered into the "main" list, with the track time (which I assume is the start time, not duration) set to 00:00 automatically...sort of drag and drop?

Maybe this stuffs up the direction in which you're trying to proceed, in which case, no problem. My usage is as a vocab learner, with emphasis on the sound of individual words (Vietnamese - getting tones right critical)
Thanks
Tony





Any chance you can show me what issues you are having, by means of screenshot?  I can't quite figure out what you mean :)

Finally finished with University for the year, so I can actually get back to adding stuff to this :D

Any requests?

22
And... being serious, should I continue here or start over on the coding snacks thread?

One of our illustrious moderators can move this thread over ... save some typing  ;)

Would have moved it quicker but I couldn't find the move button and then I couldn't work out where the hell this section was in the list of 8739878978747987092879870972390709872309802387 sections  ;D ;D

Anyhow - Moved.

24
You're on a tech forum....one where people ask (far stupider) questions every single day....Never be afraid to ask questions on DC!!

This might be better placed in the Coding Snack Request section though, just on the basis that it seems rather specific and I imagine it would likely need to be created rather than found :)
