I forgot to mention, this was all device driver stuff, not typical software.
Speaking of, can you help design a software-based video card that uses the RDP protocol to emulate extra physical displays? Asking because I've been wanting this for ages and all the paid solutions are so proprietary (and glitchy) it's unusable...
@LB_ The fascinating thing here is that the moba problem is much more than he had time to learn for his talk:
There is an insane number of precise details: this increases the thought investment required
There are countless opportunities to do things differently: you can always do something better, or worse
If you fail, you directly contribute to the enemy team: no action has low stakes
Even if you keep out the rankings, which add additional hatred, it's pretty much mechanically perfect for causing hatred.
I'm not likely to make it in for this year's competition - I was hoping to be largely done with the story by the end of August to spend September beta testing. But owing to I haven't had the time or energy, so I'm not nearly that far along.
But the idea of interpreting a bytecode was there from the start, being a pretty straightforward derivation of Gödel's and Turing's mathematics.
Actually, the problem is in working out what was underneath. Those early systems were very small indeed (due to issues with reliability of the components if nothing else) and so it wasn't so much running a p-code, so much as swapping out one instruction set entirely for another totally different one.
@Magus One of the best t-shirt logos ever was accompanied by the slogan “Save Water, Drink Wine.” That shirt got me stopped at a border once (in the Netherlands), but just so that the border guards could have a good laugh at the end of a long hot day.
While looking (futilely) for good images of that shirt, I found this and thought of everyone here:
@RaceProUK That makes sense. I imagine you'd like him, though. He's a blue hero!
But yeah, the interesting thing about the series is that the main Megaman series is somewhat more light-hearted, whereas X is more angsty. Not so much in the first game, but it grows steadily more so as it goes.
I haven't really played anything past X3 much at all in the main series. My favorite game of all time involves a different Megaman with a different origin, who is an OCD AI. Then there's the Starforce version of Megaman, where he's some kid who fused with a magic electromagnetic space dragon.
