Short follow-up

It is over 2 months since my last entry, so I made this brief summary and try to write more often (yeah, suuure):

  • Retro Day on my faculty, 8-bit edition, there was an opportunity to touch and code in BASIC for Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum+, Atari 65XE. there were some game consoles too
  • I definitely need to  make more documentation, photos mainly 🙁
  • I was in Bytom in HML, HMF ad HDMI labs, it’s incredible how much space all of it takes and how precise readings you can get, for mocap it’s less than 1mm

Hardware:

  • I looked like princess with OCZ NIA,  now I know why this kind of game controller didn’t catch on (BECAUSE IT DOESN’T WORK!!!111)
    • There’s a chance it could work if the device is properly grounded or I change some options in software, need to check that
  • I lost lots of time to disassemble VCR , unsolder modulator, search to what it was connected, in the end I didn’t find anything interesting sine I lack datasheets to make anything useful out of old TV modulator, so I assembled it back together :/

Entertainment:

  • “dsp_enhance_stereo 1” in TF2 wins Command of the Year award for me
  • Saints Row 2 on gamepad is way different than on keyboard+mouse, I remember this game was fun but now it went to overdrive 😀
