I love that there's still so much complexity in a seemingly fairly simple FPS when it comes to speedrunning. Doom is one hell of a game.

Ok, that's definitely a new one for me. Never heard of something that messes the monitor up enough to persist past a reboot and require a power cycle on the monitor like that.

The leaderboards are pretty barren. From what I've done so far it sort of seems like I could very well be on WR pace, haha. I need to get a recording/streaming solution together soon.

Oh, yeah definitely need a setup if there's a chance of getting a WR.

Yeah, I'll second the high refresh rate making a difference. I'm running 1440p 144hz (actually, I've got it OC'd to 165) and everything is just smooth as butter.

Nice stuff, other than the shit breaking part anyway.

Sounds like a pretty sweet setup TBH.

Most of my passwords are linked to my google account because I'm too damn lazy to do anything else. I had keepass set up for a while, but that became too much of a PITA.

Good shit man. That PVM looks like it's built like a tank lol.

Well, the mapper for Get Goal actually is an o2jammer, and actually makes o2jam charts, so there is that :P

It would be cool to see some video of your IIDX plays, so hopefully you figure something out. I haven't heard of Hell Charge Notes, but they certainly live up to their name. I was mostly just referring to how IIDX endings tend to ratchet up the difficulty.

That said, I do know that in the BMS scene there's crap like this:

Good shit man. I haven't really managed anything too noteworthy lately. That said, I might as well post the videos I made since that last post anyway, because it's been a while. The last one is a pretty big deal for me, because LNs (holds) are what I consider my speciality, but I'm really bad at accuracy on them because I always end up overholding the release (I blame stepmania!) which ends up potentially really ruining my accuracy on them (osu basically averages the judgement you get on both press and release, meaning if you pressed perfectly on time but overheld the release you won't get a great judgement for the note).

Get Goal is fucking hard. I think I've passed it... twice? The end has a brutal difficulty spike with really difficult LN patterns designed to fuck you right before the end IIDX style (if IIDX loved LNs the way o2jam does).

Starlights is a good song, and one of the harder ranked 7k maps too. My current score is about 20k points higher than this though slightly lower acc. This is currently my 3rd highest score in terms of PP value, which is something I guess.

Kyoumen no Nami is an incredible song, and this chart takes the weird-ass sound of the song and compliments it with weird-ass patterns that fit really well and are surprisingly fun to play. The difficulty ramps up as you get farther into the song. Like usual, I've since beaten this score, but with how stagnant my skill has been lately this still isn't a bad score for me at all.

This song is cute as hell, not gonna lie. Fun map.

And my most recent achievement: passing JinJin's 4th LN Dan. This is a 4 song course running about 10 minutes. Each song tests a different skillset, but they all revolve around LNs. For the LN Dans, a 95% acc is considered a pass. I was so damn happy when I made this.

Well some of the problem likely also stems from the ADHD. I finished the first playthrough of Nier Automata and absolutely loved it, started my second playthrough then... just stalled out and haven't felt like playing again, despite how fucking good that game is. I've picked up Atelier Lulua, Tyranny, and Y's 1 and 2 recently, but I've stalled out somewhere in the course of each one of them, and just never find myself feeling like actually playing any of them again (it might change with Lulua because that's the most recent one out of that list). But the problem is that if I'm not feeling a game, I can't just hop in and hope that experiencing the game again will spark my passion to continue it again. My brain just don't work that way. Either I'm feeling it, or I'm not, and nothing will change things. And if I ain't feeling it, I'm not going to be able to concentrate, no matter how much I intellectually want to play and enjoy the game. I just literally can't concentrate on it, and lose all enjoyment when I try to force things.

I definitely think you're going about things the right way in terms of essentially forcing yourself to beat stuff in the limited time you have though. It's a good way to ensure that you actually beat the games you set out to beat.

Congrats on beating so many games. I almost never manage to beat anything :/

That said, most of the games I spend any real time on are things you can't really beat. Path of Exile, rhythm games, minecraft, terraria (ok, you can "beat" those, but they're more timesinks than beatable games in my view).

Under appreciated? Ask anyone who's played that game and they will sing it's praise. That game is a cult classic. Easily one of the best games on the GC imo.

lol optical drive.

daemon tools and usb sticks/sd card readers have effectively made optical drives obsolete. Well, that and reasonable internet speeds.

Yeah, I knew right away that if the kernel heap was being hit, it basically had to be a driver because windows itself and drivers are essentially the only things that run in kernel space. I don't use antivirus other than the stuff that I'm stuck with (such as chrome's built in shit, and windows defender). I'm using nvenc for encoding. windbg is useless here.
