I hope this is the best place to ask this in, but I dunno if folks know but I and another run a C:DDA Facebook group.
https://www.facebook.com/CataclysmDDA/?hc_ref=ARTpqp0Pe-cd76-ZqT_RAzuYr1DUC400-rek-X00JIwu6x88BZanf3zUpOKgG7UviWk&fref=nf

It used to be active, but now with no stable to make huge update posts it has been.. quite dead.
The thing is though.. I am not sure what to do to get it active again.
If there is ever a post there is attention and conversation, but the problem is I have no idea what to post.

Maybe I should consider with the other if it might be a good idea to get a third person on board that would be more active and have things to post...

Anyways, as the title says I could use advice for what to post and what to do to keep the place active.

Other Games / Osu! and Other Rhythm Games
« on: March 11, 2017, 03:13:27 PM »
RHYTHM IS JUST A CLICK AWAY

Now this is the kind of game I have a huge passion in. I love Rhythm games, and osu! is probably the best one out there on PC. I have been playing it off and on for 4 years now, and I just adore the game. For the sake of keeping it active, I will just make this a thread for rhythm games as a whole as it is a rather niche genre, but for first post the foci point shall be on osu! I may write some other thing for another rhythm game.

So I will give you a rundown of the 4 game modes, but I am only really experienced in the main one. So the other 3 will be mostly shamelessly copied from it's wiki.

Probably the biggest problem I have is how it works. You have to manually download beatmaps from their site. Each beatmap being the game, one song with at least one difficulty with them. It can be a pain in the ass, but you can just dump them into the song folder and it normally auto detects them. If they don't an f5 refresh works. Personally, my song folder is nearing 2 and a half gigs in size.



STANDARD

This is the main meat of the game. Most of it is the standard, and that is really all I play. You click circles to the beat, that is the essential. It is much harder than that, though.

There is 3 types of things in this. Hit Circles you must click, Sliders you must drag, and spinners you must spin your mouse around the screen spastically. All in tune to the music.. except for spinners really. They are a pain in the ass like that, they were worse in the days before me though. They had 'ninja spinners' that are banned now, but then were so short some of the old songs to this day still can't be fully s ranked, not even on the bot made to play beatmaps (What each song thing is called) perfectly.

Anyways, not only must you click these things, you must also click them to the beat or rhythm of whatever song you are playing. Getting scored on how close to beat/rhythm you are.

They also increase by what ever times your combo is, raking in huge scores near the end if you keep an epic combo.
There is also what I call glorified score counters. These are
Geki and Katu/Katsu
These just mean how well you hit a set of notes. The set shown by having the same colour and increasing number (sometimes, some beatmaps change up the looks of that.) Geki for hitting perfect on the set, and Katu/Katsu for hitting at least one 100 pointer in the set. The colour of Katu/Katsu just denoting you hit a 300 or 100 on that particular note.

You get graded at the end for how well you play, and the higher ones get tracked on your account.
Silver SS (SSH) = 100% accuracy with 'hidden' and/or 'flashlight' mod.
Silver S (SH) = Over 90% 300s, less than 1% 50s and no misses with 'hidden' and/or 'flashlight' mod.
SS = 100% accuracy
S = Over 90% 300s, less than 1% 50s and no misses.
A = Over 80% 300s and no misses OR over 90% 300s.
B = Over 70% 300s and no misses OR over 80% 300s.
C = Over 60% 300s.
D = Anything else.



TAIKO

Taiko, probably the second most popular gamemode of osu! I honestly don't quite like it, but eh, I digress.
As probably expected you play a taiko drum in beat of the music. You hit 2 different notes not counting special ones, red and blue. Blue means hit the outside of the drum, red means hit the inner drum. You only hit one side on the small notes, but you must hit both sides of the drum on the big notes. There is two special notes, yellow and shaker. Yellow you must drumroll between two sides of either the inner or outer of the drum. Shaker is alternating from inner to outer.

There really isn't too much else to say about this mode, other than it is compatible with some Japanese taiko drum game thing. From what I understand it is like guitar hero's guitar thing, but a taiko drum.



CATCH THE BEAT

This is a rather fun one, but I kinda suck at it. You catch falling fruit that is timed to the music.
You only move left or right to catch the fruit, and shift is a hard to control fast dash.
For the bonus point system, similar to the spinner and taiko's drumroll, it is instead a rain of bonus point bananas.



OSU!MANIA

This gamemode is probably about as close as you will get to something similar to Beatmania or Guitar Hero.
You press a corresponding key to a falling note in time to a beat.
It has a variable amount of keys depending on difficulty, up to a hectic 9 keys. The keys being asdf(spacebar)jkl; on default. So it is like learning the homerow on your keyboard on steroids.



And now some videos done by yours truly just to show off the game! Uploaded just due to my plans on making this thread.

(Lazily crossposted from Utterly Mad Forums. That is why there is so much unused formatting in this if you might quote it to look at all the coding. Because this forum doesn't have fancy text or text sizes, and Youtube videos on the thread instead of having to go through the link. :p )

Other Games / General Steam Chat

Anything about the gaming platform Steam AKA Steampowered.com

Today I found out that Steam has a music player! It's a little buggy, like it won't play the System Shock or Neotokyo playlists on there, but it plays the Trine 2 playlist just fine so I am happy. :D

General Discussion / Ruby Quest
« on: January 24, 2015, 02:07:56 PM »
I recently finished reading this and I can't stop praising it enough. I love it so much I decided to make a thread about it!
This was an adventure RPG on 4chan's /tg/ where people put in decisions, actions, and such for the characters to do.

The main characters are an anthropomorphic Bunny and Cat named Ruby and Tom. The art is in MS Paint and poorly drawn but the art style tend to add to the creepiness believe-it-or-not.

It may start out innocent but it gets DARK AS FUCK. Also gory, there is a lot of gore in this comic so if you are queasy about blood definitely would not recommend.

A good website I recommend is http://nepeta.mozai.com/Ruby_Quest/ as it condenses the origional 20 something threads into 9 parts but if you want the origional here is an archive http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Ruby. There is even a TV Tropes article about it! Warning: TV Tropes WILL eat up most of your day.

Also note I am godawful at explaining things and always have been, but seriously give it a look it's really awesome.

So to not make this a waste of a thread this can also be a general discussion about Ruby Quest and the others like this. Hell we could even talk about the new Nan Quest being made by him which is also has the flash versions being developed on the same site. http://nepeta.mozai.com/Nan_Quest/ I have not read much of it yet, only got to the first part of Nan Quest.

And here is an image that sums up the tone of Ruby Quest pretty well.

Ok I need to go, it is 6:00 AM and I REALLY SHOULD GO THE FUCK TO BED.

Other Games / Mobile Games
« on: January 08, 2015, 03:32:02 AM »
Here is a thread to recommend Mobile games you can play on an Android or IPhone device. The problem with these systems is you will have to shovel through a lot of shit to find the diamonds inside. So anyone want to tell us your games you have found?
Don't forget to put in if it is on the Android or IPhone as they have different stores and the games may not be on both systems.

So here are the games I like and have on my android tablet.

I will start with the common stuff I have that I enjoy,
Don't Tap the White Tiles: It's really addicting!
Plague Inc: This game is great to just pick up and play, with simple strategy.
Fruit Ninja: I am really good at it.
Colossatron: Destroying everything is so fun.
World of Tanks: It's a really good game, and the touch screen controls are really good!

Ok now for some games that are not really known,
Pixel Dungeon: It's a roguelike. :D
Virtual Beggar: It's one of those incremental games, I like these kind of games.
Bitcoin Billionaire: Another incremental game and had pixel art. :D
Tap Titans: Last time I mention an incremental game, I don't know much about it but my friend recommended it, it is really receptive to multi-fingered tapping.
Cytus: It's a really fun rhythm game, it's free but you have to wait 30 seconds to play any game unless you pay about $2 to buy the game. I think it's worth it, it's like Osu! but better.
Tapping Dead: This game is HARD, the only control is a tap to start moving the main character and hold to make him stop moving. You have levels with different zombie that do different things that you must avoid. Like in the shop levels you have to avoid zombies riding shopping carts and fat zombies lobbing body parts, but in the school levels you must avoid fat kid zombies hopping back and forth and zombies with acid spit.


That's all for now, please post your own if you own a mobile device. I may get more games if I get a micro SD card.

General Discussion / What song is stuck in your head today?
« on: October 29, 2014, 08:47:28 PM »
Self explanatory, happens to me a lot I tend to have multiple songs running through my head at random intervals.

Right now the songs stuck in my head are
Down with the Sickness (Jazz version by Richard Cheese)
Anaconda
All about the bass
Royals

(Didn't say they were good songs just stuck in my head)

I think the game should get more Gamemodes. I believe there is so few but there can be so many possibilities!
It would bring something fresh to the table and give something else people can enjoy with it!

Here is an idea that I have
Zombie mode: Play as any zombie type around the start of the apocalypse and try to kill/infect NPC's (Probably should fix NPC's before doing this, and probably might be difficult to put in to put in intelligent AI for the gamemode alone)



Feel free to decide any more gamemodes you can think of.

Other Games / Games you can play with one hand.
« on: October 03, 2014, 12:31:02 AM »
So today I got attacked by a wandering asshole wasp who came out of nowhere and stung my face. So now I got to keep an ice pack on it so it stays numb. Hell I didn't even know it was a wasp until my face started hurting, all I heard was loud angry buzzing. My mom saw it, dive bomb my face... fucker. Well anyways I got to keep the ice on my face with one hand.

So I have a question, what are good games I can play with one hand. (preferably free)

Other Games / The Last Stand: Dead Zone
« on: September 21, 2014, 02:38:27 PM »
It is a pretty fun game, I know like 2 other people play it here. Thought I might post a discussion board to put all your thoughts.

There is also another thing, I am thinking of making an alliance but I am not high enough level. So I am leaving here the plans I had for creating said alliance for someone else to do.


I think the flag is pretty cool, glad they had that symbol.

General Discussion / Your Childhood Gaming Memories.
« on: August 03, 2014, 01:12:01 AM »
What are you memories of gaming as a kid?




For me it goes into 3 categories PC, Playstation, Gameboy

PC
The games I played on there were The Sims (I can't remember if it was 1 or 2) and my Dad's favorite game DooM. (I still remember som of the cheats too, Rosebud!;!;!;!; and idclip those are the most memorised ones)

Sims I remember playing in a large house with a single sim and a giant graveyard, ghosts haunting the poor guy almost daily. Sweet berries ready for two ghosts are no different than you.
Ghosts are now waiting for you.
Are you...
Sweet berries ready for two ghosts are no different than you.
Ghosts are now waiting for you.
Are you...
Dreaming! Dreaming the night! Dreaming all right!

Do we! Do we know, when we FLY?
When we, when we go
Do we die?


The DooM game I remember playing the most was DooM 2, I mostly would turn on invincibility and noclip and explore the maps.

Then when I turned 8 I got Runescape and forgot the account about 2 years later.

Playstation
Playstation FTW, when I was real young I borrowed my sisters playstation to play games. I mostly played Rugrats, Spyro 1, Harry Potter (I can't remember which one but fuck was it hard I couldn't get past the garden area where you have to defend some... plants? from stuff that I could never get past.), and Bubsy3D (Which is a pretty bad game.)

That system is lost, but I still have the Cd carrying case that houses all the Ps1 games, though only Spyro and some other game I can't remember the name of worked, all the others were scratched to hell. I also still have a working Ps1 controller

Playstation 2 though, man I got that for christmas and holy fuck yes best day ever. I have sooo many games for it, though I lost quite a lot of games/ scratched to hell through the years. Tony Hawk Underground is like one of the few sport games I like.

Gameboy
I had the old rectangle Gameboy, it was red and only had pokemon red. Not many memories of that other than the saved file was saved as my sisters name even though she never played it, dunno the fuck how it was there but it happened. I have lost the entire thin, which is sad.

I still have my Gameboy Advanced SP, I also still haven't beat Super Mario Bros. 3. I am also replaying through Leaf Green, took forever but I got past Silph Co. I like Lavenders Town Music too.



So yeah post your gaming memories, can't wait to hear some DOS stories.

EDIT: DooM not Doom
