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.

Hmm, no idea what happened, but I just got BSOD'd while streaming with a heap corruption error. :/ Tried looking at the dump but can't get anything remotely useful out of it.

Besides, everyone knows that A Link to the Past is really the best Zelda game.

Hmm, I think that's one of those things I'll have to check out myself. If the leakage is low enough I might be able to just noise gate it away.

Just ordered the webcam, a bendy mounting arm for it, and the mic kit off ebay. The webcam came out to like 35cad off ebay for a refurbished one. As long as it works, that's fine with me. The mic kit was like $51 instead of $60, not a big save there, but free shipping on that one, so it was still a bit cheaper. The arm, I should have looked around first. The shipping on the one I ordered on ebay was retarded and made it more expensive than amazon, so I'm asking to cancel it.

I mean, I grabbed this, which will probably work as a software mixer. Originally I grabbed that because I was listening in on some discord chat and wanted to figure out a way to only capture game sound so I wasn't broadcasting their conversation over my twitch stream, though I never actually got around to seeing about setting things up for that.

I didn't think about how dropping it with phantom power could break things, but yeah I'm always careful with mics. If you recall, I did spend a full day co-op position in the recording studio we had in my high school. I learned very quickly to treat mics with respect. We had a pair of $2000 mics we used for overheads on the drums, and they'd have murdered me and hid the body if I broke one of those. And yeah, compression is a must on voice stuff.

As far as headphones go, I tend to always use headphones anyway. Still have my Grado SR125e's, though I REALLY need to get around to recabling them one of these days.

Someone linked me to this: which looks like a nice cheap option, and at least doesn't sound like those scratchy awful webcam/garbage headset mics. Any thoughts?

I've decided that just for the hell of it, when I play osu!mania, I'll stream it. No schedule, no mic, no cam, but at least I'll stream it. Unfortunately I haven't figured out how to get an overlay that shows my score, and the judgements/combo, because I play with the ingame interface off to reduce distractions, but I'd like people in the stream to see how I'm doing better. Eventually I would like to invest in a mic/cam, but for the time being I can't really spare the money.

You have a better CPU than I do, the same amount of ram, and a somewhat slower GPU that is still not bad. You should honestly be able to stream just fine. I'm sure somewhere some setting is messed up. The only computers that should get laggy when streaming/recording video are like laptops (at least, anything that isn't expensive).
