Already seen it online.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -Wildstrike- : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -Wildstrike- : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:30 PM)

Well, my main point is that it will speed up the system migration so I have A) less system downtime because there are fewer files to transfer before the new system can be up and running and B) it reduces the risk of something going wrong during the system migration.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 May 2020 - 06:19 AM)

If your primary is getting cleaned up anyway cause you were backing stuff up, then yeah, no reason not to. But largely, it's not a necessary step.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 AM)

It's like you find out that there's a fire going to break out in the house you live in soon, so you find a new place, get your entire Transformers collection into safe storage, and now all that's left are the empty cabinets which you intend to move over to your new place soon. If the fire breaks out before then, sure, you'd need to get new cabinets, but your toys are already out of the danger zone.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:27 AM)

At this point, I'm in a "if the old system crashed before the new drive arrives, it will be slightly annoying, not a complete disaster" mood.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I've mostly just backed up my personal files and stuff on the external hard drive. The existing Windows installment is supposed to be directly cloned to the new drive once it arrives.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 May 2020 - 01:44 AM)

Who else has ever been so out of it that you've gotten into the shower with your glasses on?

@  Echowarrior : (20 May 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Nope. We've been forced to go with Eclipse. It sucks, and I will continue to call the people in charge of the website fascists until they give me reason to do otherwise.

@  CORVUS : (20 May 2020 - 10:20 PM)

Yeah, I'm not a fan of the new layout either. Fortunately you can stay with the old one though.

@  Liege : (20 May 2020 - 08:57 PM)

So now it matches 90% of the content.

@  Trpodeca : (20 May 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Wow the new Deviantart layout is terrible.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 May 2020 - 10:39 AM)

Are you referring to cloning your drive to install into your computer as the replacement, or are you creating an image to restore from should something unforseen occur?

Huh in my mental map of LttP I had the game segmented into 3x3 tiles for 9 tiles but today looking at things more closely and confirming with the actual layout the segmentation is a bit different...

 

zelmapareas3.JPG

 

The bulk of the map is just 9 major areas but there are also the narrow sections I call gates or highways there often the most traverse areas as you dart around Hyrule, to the 9 sections. There often gated requiring items to traverse as well at least in the Dark World

 

Just something I noted while playing LttP on my SNES

I knew all the sections weren't the same size, but the layout is actually symmetrical. On top of that, the narrow section are exactly half the size of the large sections and the small ones are exactly half the size of the narrow ones. I kinda wonder if there is some technical reason for said design, like some sort of ram optimization.

With two separate worlds to have store and to map to the data to memory that would be my guess

OK SO. Breath of the Wild sequel.

 

From the trailer, it looks like Link and Zelda go underneath the castle and find the human Ganondorf's desiccated corpse being...drained? Held back? By a hand that glows green, recalling the Twili from Twilight Princess. This green power also emanates from Link at one point in the trailer.

 

Although, I have a suspicion it might not be Ganondorf...but someone else entirely.

 

Either way, whoever it is comes back to life in a way similar to our good old friends the Redeads.

 

We're going DARK here, perhaps even darker than Majora's Mask. They're probably going to dig up more clues as to which timeline BotW takes place in. I can NOT wait.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

I'm really interested to see what they do with Zelda herself. She said in the ending that she's lost a lot of the power she had while fighting off Ganon for a century, so she doesn't need to be taken off the board for gameplay balance reasons. So I'd love to see her be playable in the sequel. Whether it's through branching storylines, choice of character, being able to switch, co-op gameplay, or whatever. I'm trying not to spend too much time dwelling on the possibilities there, simply because I think I'd be setting myself up for disappointment.

 

Less exciting would be if she's an NPC companion. It could be nice to have a permanent partner to help out. Especially if she would vary her AI based on what you're fighting, and even enabling unique combination attacks to take on particular bosses. Still plenty of potential there.

 

The disappointing scenario would be that she's just a damsel in distress again. I really hope that if she does go off on her own during the game, it's because she has her own tasks to take care of, and not that she needs to be rescued. That wouldn't feel right, especially for this particular Zelda.

 

OMGWTFNoooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! possibility: BotW2 is a 100-hour escort mission. And Zelda doesn't get a paraglider.

What I hope (wild mass guessing here), control Link for up close sword fighting and general item usage...Zelda for ranged fighting (arrows, boomerangs) and magic. You could freely switch between them depending on the situation.

Co-op Zelda would also be cool.

Also, pretty sure rebuilding the kingdom falls squarely under this:

 

I really hope that if she does go off on her own during the game, it's because she has her own tasks to take care of, and not that she needs to be rescued.

 

But yeah, that whole train of thought comes from the fact that the trailer shows them on an adventure together. That could just be for cutscenes, but I'd love to see it play out in the gameplay.

 

Unless it's to make the game a giant escort mission...

I'd definitely like to see some bonuses pulled in from the BotW save data. Tarrey Town's a good one. Maybe access to the Champion abilities, since those aren't mandatory. The Master Sword unlocks and Master Cycle Zero from the DLC would also be great to carry over. Nothing game breaking, but nice rewards for having accomplished stuff in the first game.

Link already uses bows and boomerangs in Breath of the Wild. I'm not sure how I'd feel about robbing him of his existing abilities just as an excuse to give Zelda something to do...
