  1. I dreamt I was a wanted man on the streets of Brooklyn or something, and so my friend Niko quickly gave me his dark gray, super nice shirt to put over mine and then I also noticed I had like a super fancy ring on my finger and understated but possibly high tech watch on. We went to a bar and tried to act normal, but I freaked out at one point when a man looked at me and I thought he was an undercover agent trying to get me. I then resumed "acting normal" as if I hadn't just acted super suspiciously and no one apprehended me. The make over really seemed to be working. 


    Later in my dream I was driving Niko's BM1 X1 and I guess it was a mix of rain and sleet out or something but I thought the roads were just wet. I went around the turn by Smiley's pond a little bit fast, but I was thinking, "it's a BMW, it can handle it no problem" and right after that thought finished the wheels slipped and the car went straight off the road and clipped a sappling before the wheel's found grip again and I was able to careen back onto the road without doing any damage to the car.

  2. I enjoyed this game enough to share it: https://chaliceoflore.itch.io/tinl The simplicity of the gameplay is a bit of an adjustment in this genre, but once you understand the game mechanics it's quite nice and works fine. Here is a video of me playing the game, but I wouldn't watch the whole video if you don't want too many spoilers:
  3. My goal is to have the editor not be jerky while I'm making edits. The 4K video isn't editable because the actual program while making edits is so jerky and halting; you know, the same kind of experience as playing Doom on a 386 25 SX machine with 4MB ram back in the day and the game barely runs with super jerky framerate.
  4. Thanks everyone! I'm currently on www.newegg.com putting together a custom "moderate" high end build for editing 4K (been literally decades since I built a computer but I think I'm up for the challenge). I'm currently trying to figure out what motherboard to get. It's a bit tricky, because I'm going hog on the processor (apparently that's the most important thing for editing 4K) and just read that the Ryzen 3900x (the 12 core CPU I'm going with) supports ultra fast NVMe 4.0 SSDs. The motherboard that has piqued my interest is GIGABYTE B550 AORUS ELITE AM4 AMD B550 ATX Motherboard with Dual M.2, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.2 Gen 2, 2.5 GbE LAN, PCIe 4.0 due to its price point and generous support for PCIe 4.0. One of the reviewers for the motherboard said some things that sounded intelligent that I might want to pay attention to, but wondering what his comment means in terms of the 4.0 SSD I am choosing. I have no plans to do SATA drive at this point (but that may change I suppose if I want to use a SATA as a back up drive or for extra storage). If someone can let me know if the above quote will affect my build (without SATA) I'd appreciate it. My build so far: GIGABYTE B550 AORUS ELITE AM4 AMD B550 ATX Motherboard with Dual M.2, SATA 6Gb/s, USB 3.2 Gen 2, 2.5 GbE LAN, PCIe 4.0 $159.99 MSI GeForce GTX 1660 DirectX 12 GTX 1660 VENTUS XS 6G OC 6GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card $219.95 2X CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model CMK32GX4M2B3200C16 (64GB total) $239.98 AMD RYZEN 9 3900X 12-Core 3.8 GHz (4.6 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 105W 100-100000023BOX Desktop Processor $429.99 Sabrent 1TB Rocket Nvme PCIe 4.0 M.2 2280 Internal SSD Maximum Performance Solid State Drive (SB-ROCKET-NVMe4-1TB) $199.99 Current subtotal: $1249.90 Any recommendations for case and power supply given the hardware I've listed? Will a "midtower" case be spacious enough? Thanks!

  5. It won't be enough to upgrade the ram and CPU? I'll need a new GPU, too?
  6. Thanks everyone for the input! The graphics card is an nVidia GeForce GTX 1070 Max Q. I'm not sure how much ram the gfx card has. Hopefully I can find the info I need on my RAM in the BIOS to see if I can just buy another 16GB stick and put it in. Any recommendation on what processor I should upgrade with?

  8. I looked for an active video editing forum and failed to find one. I love Doomworld so I'm posting my question here: I am attempting to edit 4K video on an MSI GS65 Stealth laptop with 6 core 8750h 2.2ghz processor and 16gb ram but the program I'm using Filmora is choking hard. Seems to me I should be able to edit 4K with this laptop, no? I'm using Filmora and it is too slow to edit 4k video, much to my disappointment. It even offers to create a proxy clip that is lower res while editing and yet the program is still too laggy to do any editing. I recently bought a WD_BLACK gaming external drive (not for gaming, but for storage) and am editing from that drive, but even when I move the video file back to my laptop's main SSD it still is too laggy / slow to edit directly from the SSD. I realize this is sort of the bare minimum hardware for editing 4K but I thought it did at least meet the requirement. Anyone else edit 4K video successfully with similar hardware or have any insight on this topic? If so, if you could share your experience that would be so helpful! :D

    Water, second choice would be coffee, third would be grapefruit juice. But over 90% of the time it's water.

    What are you reading now?

    Just finished the book. My summary of the book is as follows: It rained and rained and rained and rained. The riverbed was dry. Good book, though! Couple other things niggled me, though.

    Favorite Breakout/Arkanoid genre game

    Moraff's Blast was my favorite. That game was super interesting for a breakout clone. I haven't played that game in ages. I should give it a spin! I have fond memories of it. After that, I suppose Breakout might be favorite. I think I did play Ricochet Infinity and thought it was good. Moraff's Blast graphics were nothing to write home about but the gameplay was fun/interesting and the game wasn't too hard.
  15. I just realized this as I went to EE just now to read your reply. Oops. EE gets more traffic, tho. My dreams get cooler as life goes on. I’m not sure about my life, though. Hmm....
