Steam updated again, and there are again more new games in my library I have no recollection of

a bizarre trend, but one i am appreciative of
I think that after you reach certain level (yeah steam IS a very sad rpg with the worst case of pay-to-win ever) you have some chance of periodically bein bestowed by a bless from Papa Gabe.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?

Huh, that could explain a few that have popped up that I have no recollection of buying. Although it could just as easily be that I bought them years ago and never got around to playing them.

Oooh, good point. I'm pretty sure I've only ever bought one of those, but if memory serves I bought it just for one game despite not being very interested in the others.

So, I managed to get Exagear running on my phone, after being inspired by wierd's posts about it. If it changes anything, I got my copy from archive.org and it was modded to remove copy protection.

I then decided to try and replicate what wierd did, and run Dwarf Fortress on the phone.

The good thing is that it booted. Unfortunately, trying to run DF didn't really work. Instead, I got this error message when I tried to run it:


Did he do something (anything at all) to the DF folder or anything in it that let it run?

Edit: It just occurred to me that he probably used the 32-bit legacy version of DF. This time, it still errors out, but this time with "Error Creating OpenGL Window"

Watching LGIO play The Quiet Man, and while there is definitely something to be said for having everyone be smolderingly pretty and making an action fighting game in small environments with a combat system that's extremely floaty and slippery and not at all suited for small environments, I get caught up on the fact that the protagonist was just shown what's presumably a ransom note (or potentially just a warning), seeing as it's composed of the classic cut-out and glued letters from magazines format.

The cut-out and glued letter format, which is used specifically to avoid tracing and identification... And the note is signed with a custom wax seal at the bottom of the paper.


Um.

I have the legally purchased version. 

I did not use the legacy version, because it cannot create the opengl window. 

Instead, I used the normal 32bit version.  In the paid version, it works just great. It's not that expensive, and can run a lot more than just DF. (Can also run starcraft, diablo and diablo 2, etc...)

The paid version uses a higher WINE version. (WINE 3.0)  This is probably the deal.

Thank you for stating that you used the normal 32-bit version of DF. It works now and I've generated a pocket world in it. I was basically forced to download what amounts to a cracked version because Exagear isn't officially available where I live.

Glad it's working for you!

The "escape" button is hard-coded to the back button.  Other than that, a bluetooth keyboard is all you need for mostly comfortable play.  You could maybe get away with hacker's keyboard IME, but meh.

Out of curiosity, what kind of phone are you doing this with?  My Galaxy 5S is "old" by modern standards, but so far is able to handle a fortress of 30 dwarves at ~11fps

I'm using a Galaxy A50. It's new (released in Q1 2019). I haven't tried Fort Mode, but it's somewhere between a Galaxy S6 and an S7 in benchmarks, so it should fare better than your phone.

Why the hell does shit-eating grin not mean a grin that is disgusted or otherwise uncomfortable.

There was recently a big reddit thread about animal shits and their relation to English.

Like:
Bullshit
Horseshit
Batshit
Apeshit
Ratshit
Dogshit
Snakeshit
Chickenshit
And Jack Shit. Technically an animal.

Which all have weirdly diverse meanings.

Based on only the first website that came up (which means the information is good, right?), it means a grin from a despicable person. I would assume the grin of a bad person is the grin of someone who just got away with something.

Also using this, I'm quite happy with it.

It's actually performing better than my S7. The major difference is water. It does not react well to moisture of any kind. Even a few droplets on the screen will cause it to practically lose all calibration for like, a full minute.
