Guardians of the Galaxy is Epic's free game of the day.

Unfortunately, Circle Dock is abandonware. The person that supported it fervently wasn't even the developer, and even he has not been online in a while.

Circle Dock was supported by a user sgtevmckay on DonationCoder and they were provided space to host it. They have not been to the site since November 25, 2017, 05:59 PM. I wouldn't expect much in the way of support.

Miss having your input around! I hope things are going well for you!

They're better numbers than I ever managed.  :Thmbsup:

I think the big thing that people were talking about was that cloud syncs worked right now.

By all accounts on ProtonDB, Halo: The Master Chief Collection works just fine despite being ranked as Unsupported, with the caveat that the game's Easy Anti-Cheat doesn't work on Deck/Linux and therefore online multiplayer doesn't work.

Thanks for this! I'd wanted to get it, but passed when I saw unsupported.

I just remembered that I did have to boot into Desktop mode and delete an EAC-related file before it would work, but other than that I didn't need to set any custom compatibility options or do other tinkering:

For the game to work at all, you need to move or remove this file: "steamapps/common/Halo The Master Chief Collection/easyanticheat/" Then launch using the "Play Halo: MCC Anti-Cheat Disabled (Mods and Limited Services)" option.

FYI Halo: MCC has been upgraded from Unsupported to Playable.

Thanks! And don't know if you've seen this:

The only emulation I was involved with is for Arcade games - I never got into console emulation, so it's interesting to see.

I installed CryoUtilities mostly to get better performance with emulation than with Steam games, which seems to have helped. :Thmbsup:

I haven't done any emulation. What kind of emulated games are you running?

I installed it- also going to go through installing my 1GB SD card and copying the files over then I'll install something to tax it.

I would guess Mouser/Jesse would prefer to see 10 programmers making 10 fresh/unique new programs here on DC rather than having them all creating different forms of the same tool

From my experience with him, I think it would be preferred that programmers do whatever appeals to them. Nothing has ever been really rigid or required in this framework as I've seen in my time here. That's one of the reason that I think it's such a cool place and thrives.

Sorry, between work and RL stuff going on, haven't had a chance. I'll get to it ASAP.

Yeah, I have a 1TB SD card I need to upgrade to, and after that, 1.5TB should be more than enough, I think LOL

Silly me.

I thought I was buying JSAUX’s transparent backplate for the Steam Deck for the bragging rights. Transparent gadgets are fun! But you know what’s cooler than seeing inside your Steam Deck? Having a Deck that runs cooler, too.

I’m happy to report that after spending $30 on my very own JSAUX PC0106 Transparent Back Plate for Steam Deck, my original skepticism didn’t pan out. Not only does it look great, its built-in aluminum heatsink actually does help manage the $400 handheld gaming PC’s heat. And at just eight Phillips-head screws and a little prying to pop off your original backplate, it’s an easy mod to do.

More at link. It seems like a good mod and an easy mod... but I'm still leery of hardware mods to my deck. I might try this one though.

I'm sure it is. It's not automated, so mouser has to do it. I'd PM him directly.

Yeah, I got it too... it's a shame. I'd started using that more.

Twitter is centralized, made for easy access (get an account and post stuff). ActivityPub, including Mastodon, is more complicated, both during signup and during actual usage, especially since you can find everyone on Twitter, but not all ActivityPub instances talk to each other.

I registered on Mastodon when still virtually nobody except a few IT nerds was there. It’s quite good for IT rants. Sadly, the wave of Twitter users tries to turn it into just another political network. Ugh.

So you're just referring to implementation details rather than the idea? I can see that- the implementation is different on purpose. I don't think it's more complicated during signup nor vastly more complicated during use- you just have to be aware of instances.
