ZOMG REAL SC3

Ahh, vague omens and mysterious portents. Tangled webs of fate intertwined with the branches of destiny, blown by the capricious winds of happenstance. News, news....uh, actually there is some news!

Fred and Paul have Questions for you!

Post by krulle »

Damn, Reddit only allows the visit through their app, which I don't see any reason other than UQM to install.

When did reddit change that?

This rottenappletablet has more processing power than my PC, so why?

I don't see what you mean. I visit with Chrome (on which I am not logged in) and can view the threads.

F&P have questions for you!

i get an overlay asking to continue in the app, or "return to /r/popular".

I have found no way to get anywhere to read the threads of /r/uqm2.
Apple's Safari on an iPad Pro.

Alas.

Same happens to me for the chrome app for ios ipads.
Installed it to test if it happens there too.

Alas.

But then, less spoilers for me.

Don't think copying the discussion threads over here is feasible... Commiserations for the situation, Krulle...

Argh, apple!

stop moving that option around!
had to google how to request desktop poages.

It was so easy to find, and they moved it behind a different button.

WHY?

ow I can read it, until the next minor updatw... Ugh

I thought apple was about intuitive usage?
Nah, just keeping you in the dark because the have to change everything every time.

Apple's sites once again did not give me the information when using their search engine,
Google and DuckDuckGo both had it at the top of the search results list.
/rant.
Thanks for reminding me to search that option again, Serosis.


Edit: won't participate much there anyway (no reddit account), but it's nice to see what's being discussed at all.
Right mow mostly UI questions.

You can always use old.reddit.com on mobile, which works well enough to read through it.

Incoming message from the Dan beast, Dogar and Kazon, Channel 44 wrote:This is a quick note to say that we are making good progress on the tech and narrative underpinnings of UQM2. Ken Ford and Dan Gerstein have been part of the core team for the last few months. Speaking of Dan, he has an interesting idea! I’ll let him describe it…

Dan here. I got my professional start in games interning for Paul and Fred at Toys for Bob. I was inspired by their spirit of helping, learning, and experimenting -- our UQM2 subreddit is a good example of this spirit in action. Now I want to try a crazy new experiment motivated by those same ideals. Every week, you can watch a live stream of me working on UQM2 for a couple hours. This is not a curated or gussied up show -- it is raw, real game development at a very early and rough stage. It’s going to look a lot like programming (that's mostly what I do) except I will be using the bespoke scripting language Fred has created. Fred will be joining me for this first session, answering questions about his language, and -- if I know Fred -- relentlessly mocking me, my programming, and probably the very reason for my existence. If people enjoy this experiment, I'll be doing this on a regular basis.

We will be starting for now on Friday at 2:00pm PDT (21:00 UTC) at https://twitch.tv/pebby. Please stop by if you’re interested in UQM2, game development, or if you just want to say hi and stare at my screen with me.
