    2Buck got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in Minecraft Java Edition to get performance improvements in 2021   
    If the game could run a quarter as well as it did on 1.2.5 I'd be thrilled. Server performance is a joke right now, even with paper.

    Got a 36" Sony Trinitron!!! Was watching a video about one, the guy said he got it on offerup, so I opened up offerup and there it was. LMAO 20 bucks well spent.

    Got her all calibrated. It has some minor bowing at the top that couldn't be fixed in the service menu, but oh well. Still incredibly stoked about this! My Panasonic Tau has a better image, but it's only 27" soooooo yeah this is still a big upgrade.

    2Buck got a reaction from Results45 in Experiences with non-techies   
    Yup, usually in my experience the minute someone brings up certifications, I worry for their intelligence. If they didn't have something to prove they wouldn't feel the need to bring it up.
     
    And yeah, wifi is usually always fine in 99% of cases. Things like games that use delay based netcode however, yeah every last ms counts and ethernet is really the only option (especially in our pandemic world where competitive gaming is all online now.) But for casual gaming... as long as the signal is good, Wifi will do just fine. It's just the statement that "ethernet is equal to or even better" that got me so hard lmao.

    2Buck got a reaction from DeScruff in Nintendo issues CnD to tournament organizers for using "project slippi" an emulation mod allowing a 20 yr old game to be played online   
    Did NOT expect to see this covered on this site, nice. Yup, Nintendo is fucking dogshit.
     
    Facts:
    Slippi contains no Nintendo code or reference to any of their intellectual property.
     
    Project slippi is code injection, not directly modifying the original game code.
     
    Emulation is 100% legal and has been proven in court.
     
    ROM ownership in itself is not illegal, piracy is.
     
    Nintendo has done nothing but stand in the way of the Smash community (not just Melee).
     
    Nintendo doesn't have the rights to shut down Slippi. They do however have the rights to shut down any stream containing their IP (because of our dogshit 1700s copyright system). Most companies do not do this however as it's free marketing... Most successful games these days rely on it, Minecraft anyone?
     
    Slippi rollback netcode gave us Melee players a way to play the game with little to no lag during a global pandemic when we cannot gather at local events.
     
    Other companies embrace modding and community stuff, except Nintendo because they're ridiculously out of touch.
     
    Arc System literally hired fans when they made a rollback netcode patch for Guilty Gear. Sega has done similar stuff. Again, most other companies embrace this stuff as it's healthy for any popular game.
     
    Unrelated, Nintendo has also been shutting down content creators/streamers of streaming Age of Calamity. Even more dogshit.
     
    I could go on for hours. #FreeMelee
     
    EDIT:
    Bonus fact: You can 100% legally play Slippi online. You can rip your own ISO using your Wii (backing up your own games is legal), and the emulator used for netplay is also completely legal. Sure, there are people who will pirate, but emulation and piracy are not the same thing. My Brawl and Melee ISOs were created using my own discs with my own Wii.

    2Buck reacted to Commodus in Experiences with non-techies   
    Reminds me of my golden rule during my tech support days: someone's tendency to cite their certifications is inversely proportionate to how much they know about the problem at hand. "I have an A+/CISSP/Microsoft cert!" pretty much guarantees they haven't even rebooted their modem yet.
     
    I'd say WiFi is good enough for many situations, especially with WiFi 6 in the mix, but... no, there's no substitute for Ethernet in some situations. Certainly not places where 10Gbps Ethernet is virtually mandatory for sharing large files.

    Right??? Even if Slippi was illegal (it's 100% legal), all it does is bring Nintendo fans together during a pandemic to play a game Nintendo hasn't sold and ignored for over a decade. Nintendo has NOTHING to lose here. Whoever sides with Nintendo on this gives no shit about consumer freedom and loves the taste of boots.

    What the TOs did was completely legal, it's so clear that you have no clue what is going on here. Do at least two minutes of research before you make yourself look foolish please.

    Piracy is not the issue here. Nintendo bringing piracy into this is a strawman tactic to make Slippi look like the boogeyman. Slippi, events and streams are not piracy.

    And where does this 99.9% figure come from? Are you prepared to back yourself up with proof or a source of any kind? Anything to show you're not just pulling numbers out of nowhere?

    I guarantee the vast majority of anyone entering these events owns at least one copy of this game. I've owned it myself several times, got my first copy in 2004. Do I have direct proof of this? No, but you don't either. But as someone who's actually in the community, everyone I know has at least one copy, most have several because at local events you are incentivized to bring in setups for people to play on. Point is, you have 0 proof of this 99.9% claim, it's empty at best.

    Except nobody needs to illegally obtain their image of the game. Saying the events should be closed because some people will enter with pirated copies is like saying stores should be closed because some people will shoplift. Nobody is required to use a "specific rom", I don't know where you're getting this information from.
     
    And like I've said, Nintendo does have the right to cancel any event that features their IP, but this has NOTHING to do with piracy or emulation issues which is what they say they're after and besides, legal =/= moral.
     
    As far as the legality of Slippi and playing Melee online via emulation, it's all legal.

    Oh yeah, play the new game with 5 second input delay online. Great idea. If you knew what you were talking about, you'd know that all Smash Ultimate pro players are basically doing nothing right now because of covid, the online is so bad that it's almost unplayable. Hell, when Melee rollback came out, most ult players were playing Melee because they can't play ult.
