76  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / One Chance: A game you can only play once on: September 11, 2014, 02:25:35 PM
Here's an interesting looking game called One Chance which only allows you to play it once.

One Chance is a game quite unlike any you have ever played online. It is about a scientist who created a pathogen that is inadvertantly wiping out all mankind on Earth. You then have six in-game days to decided how you will spend the rest of your life. Will you stay at the office and do all you can to find a cure? Will you finally step away from the office and spend some time with the family you have been neglecting? Or will the madness and impending doom jusr cause you to lose your mind?

What really sets One Chance apart is that you really only have One Chance to play it. The game picks up on your I.P and unless you have multiple computers with multiple I.P's, you really only do get one chance in One Chance, which is part of what makes it so spectacular.

(It actually just stores a cookie, so you can play it again if you clear your cookies or use Incognito/Private browsing mode.)

This is kind of a non-issue now that there are things like Android Wear, which has about 80-90% of the benefits and convenience of Glass without the drawbacks including potential privacy invasion of others.

If you're still waiting to hear about your free board from MS, you can stop holding your breath. You're not getting one.

Here's an excerpt from an email I just received from Microsoft (emphasis added):

While we are continuing our program, we have finished allocating all the Intel Galileo boards that we purchased. If you were allocated a kit then you should have received either a tracking number or an email saying a kit was allocated to you. If you haven’t received either of those two emails you will still be able to participate in the Windows Developer Program for IoT using a retail board.

I can't take that article seriously.

His first big scary thing is how Google tracks your location if you have an Android phone with location tracking enabled. Well duh! Of course Google tracks your location when you have enabled location tracking.

He then goes on to say that it can even track your location while the phone is off. Oh noes! This does sound very scary indeed, and a major breach of privacy. But this is where he loses all credibility with me. He then defines "off" as meaning the phone is on and ready to receive calls/texts/notifications, but the screen is blank. Does anybody really think their phone is off when the screen is sleeping?

I couldn't even be bothered reading the rest of the article after that.

As a child, I actually liked those horrifying stories and one of my prized possessions was an antique fairy tale book, given to me by my grandmother. That's right, no cleaned up G-rated stuff for me. I left that Disneyfied junk for my over-sensitive little sister.


You are supposed to cry at the end of this story, not do a happy dance.

I hate sanitized versions of fairy tales. It's worse than music with the foul language beeped out.

Something tells me you'd like:

The entire story is just really sad.

It's sad to think that someone could do all those awful things to Eron, being so manipulative, abusive, and psyophaticw in general.

And then it's sad to think of all the hurt and pain and anguish that Zoe must have gone through herself in order to be molded into that kind of a person. My heart goes out to both of them, and I really hope that Zoe gets the help she needs to heal those wounds that led to this behavior, so that she doesn't further propagate the cycle of abuse.

Thanks mouser!

That reminds me that I forgot to post about my experience write-up. It's all in the following blog post:

Ludum Dare 30 - A Postpartum

I made a timelapse and even a little "trailer" video for my game. The timelapse can be found at the link above. I'll include the "trailer" below:

In what sense of the word? Resolution? Screen real-estate? Filesize? Bandwidth use? huh

I was under the impression today that videos were appearing to take up less of my screen than usual.

Embarrassing because mouser didn't eat his own dogfood, so to speak. :-D Using an old version instead of the latest version of his own software!

Oh ho ho! Or something.

That's my guess, anyway.

I admit I fell for the linkbait. But I got some sense slapped into me as soon as I saw that it was a video. Why do they need a video to show me some photos?

I can relate... I hate when my passwords are rejected. Especially when the error message is something like:

It's like some BOFH trying to limit passwords to match his set of rainbow tables.

While signing up for a website recently I had entered in a long password, something like 35+ characters, and the registration form gave me an error:

"Passwords must be at least 6 characters long."

I shortened the password to something like 15 characters and it worked.
91  Other Software / DC Gamer Club / GOG.com delisting 35 games on September 2, 2014 on: August 28, 2014, 12:00:24 PM
GOG.com will soon be delisting 35 games from their catalog, so they're offering them all for sale in a Last Chance Promo

We'll be removing a number of games from the GOG.com catalog - here's your last call to get them with a special discount!

Today, we're here to honor the promise we gave you to announce ahead of time whenever we're taking a game down from sales. We wanted to give you one last chance to get the titles we're delisting with a considerable discount, and the partners involved agreed. There are 35 games on that list and you can get them all for up to 80% off until Tuesday, September 2, at 3:59AM GMT. Any title you buy will remain in your collection even after it's removed from our catalog, so you can always download and re-download the installers and bonus content. Check out the promo page to see which games this concerns.

It's probably a good idea to peruse the list and buy any games you want that you've been holding off purchasing until now.

I've recently encountered this a lot while trying to download/play Ludum Dare 30 games, but having the downloads blocked by Chrome with seemingly no way to keep them anyway.

I turned to Twitter and was told about another partial workaround:

If you open your downloads page (Ctrl-J by default) you can click "Recover malicious file" to keep the file.

I've been playing through some of the LD30 entries so I can rate them. I'm attempting to record videos of my playthroughs. I had some troubles with my microphone, either getting the volume right, or forgetting that I had it on mute, etc. :-D

Here's my playlist:


And one of my favorite games so far:

Let the rating begin!

The Ludum Dare 30 competition/jam is officially over. Now there will be about 3 weeks in which you can play and rate the submitted games.

I just submitted my game a few minutes ago. Play it and rate it here:

The theme for Ludum Dare 30 is: Connected Worlds

Don't expect to hear much of anything from me for the next few days. I'll be too busy Daring to Ludum. Or something.

When her co-workers retrieved their phones to try to call her, they found that she had been frantically trying to call and text people to come help her.

Um... Why not call someone outside of the school to come help? undecided

Isn't it obvious? These laptops are made by Apple. tongue

40,000 neighborhoods is 1/4th of all neighborhoods in the USA? So there are only 160,000 neighborhoods in the USA?
