In Topic: Question about Twitch hivemind

30 January 2016 - 08:33 AM

Amazingly, Twitch completed Dark Souls. They eventually had to pause the game to allow a vote, but they actually managed it.

how is such precise input possible to do over chat?

AR is going to be the #1 INFOTAINMENT focused piece of tech.
Info-communication, work environment assistance, social networking, news, navigation, commercials etc...


O man, since they unveiled the hololens i've seen so many potential uses outside of gaming. just construction alone, imagine being able to see the layout of the frame of a house projected onto the slab, potentially a virtual tape measure, or even level. no extra tools, always able to see exactly how square and level something is. the potential is there imo for revolutionizing alot of industry's if the hololens can be as capable as microsoft is claiming it is(and of course developers are able to fully realize this.)

Well this is just sad.. This is game development site with chat room and the room is so unfriendly to code. If anybody asks for help there and people are willing to help, they almost cant write even single line because of this..  Imagine showing example with std::vector and it throws such mess..


I still don't get why the irc channel was dropped in favour of an html chat facility. Such facilities are never as good and never have as many users...


to be fair though, the chat maintains our logged in profiles, which is nice as it means for the most part everyone is tied to a real account, no shenanigans with alt nicks and stuff(granted irc does have a facility for ensuring people can register there nicks). honestly i'm surprised the chat does so little in relation to the site, i could see making cross site linking and quick loading board threads(in the same manner of how you can peek at threads without entering them) in the chat itself would be pretty nice.
 

Seems to me like IPB rush out their 'updates' without proper testing, and somebody needs to hit them repeatedly with a cluebat until they learn how to do proper testing...


this chat seems to me to be unreleated from either the core dev team, or the IPB themselves(may be a 3rd party solution?) as the underlying code is vastly different from the sites main code, and a number of hacky things are in it if you go digging.

edit: Josh has pointed out to me(in chat nonetheless) that the chat is maintained by IPB, in which case. wtf, can a ticket or something be generated for fixing this?
