It happened only twice in total when I was lazy and retarded enough to lurk malware-rich web-resources without any protection. Just had to format and reinstall the OS a few times. Replaying some games after this wasn't a bad experience.
>Did you brick your hard drive or something?
The few times HDD problems had happened, I already had backups in other storages.

Just delete them all but leave the save files. 
Don't hold back.
If you will really want to play them, you'll re-download them later.

I was playing some CDDA using the aftershock mod but I think that is dead now. Which is a shame, CDDA wants to become more "grounded" and removed a lot of the futuristic stuff. Aftershock adds that stuff back in as well as some other removed content and some new like new classes and enemies. It even had the start of its own questline which was really cool, guess I'll see if anyone else picks it up. I wish there were more scifi roguelikes, I heard there was a mech one but I never found it. 
So what are you playing anon?

*see start of conversation
Roguelikes get a pass because its ASCII, you can only do so much without particle effects to spice things up.
The basic classic RPG formula though? So far I've never seen any other genre just straight up use the exact same system for damage calculations and even UI formatting as so called traditional RPGs. No border changes, the exact same menu positions, exact same portrait displays, virtually no new or different damage formulas it is always the same damage formulas copied line by line. I used to think it was RPG Maker but even old ass SNES games basically ripped off the sane things RPG Maker copied as its base.

>think about for several days if I should bother using ZScript and foregoe the possibility of K8Vavoom support or not
>settle on ZScript instead 
After some fiddling around with ZScript I managed to convert a few actors to ZScript mainly the base class and the weapon class. There isn't any noticeable changes though I had to fix a few bugs that happened after the conversion. It fucking sucks because now it makes my mod now entirely dependent on Graf Doom, as I would like to see if after tons of bug fixes if K8Vavoom would run overall better or not. Still I have a older version of my mod that sort of runs under K8Vavoom so I can still check it out later when more engine progress has been made. Now it is going to take half a million year to figure out how ZScript works and taking advance of it so that I can have more complex features. Preferabbly I want to have only 1 selectable tank class, the player should be able to switch to a different tank model when he is certain check points (yet to decide to how its gonna work), so for example when the player made enough score he can switch to Leopard 1 HA (Heavy Armor) model. 
I hope learning a little bit of python will give me a better understanding how ZScript works.
Replies: >>15654
Zscript predates the jump to 3D so if you have any particular issues you can do a rollback and stick to that version exclusively. You'll have to prepackage that version's files but that isn't a big deal.

My current issue at the moment is figuring out how to adapt the brutal doom tonk code which has also parts for pitch changes which my previous tank code lacked which I didn't have it yet because the version I took was before he added in the pitch changes. Right now its so fucking broken it doesn't work right, the chassis does not correctly pitch according to the sloped surface and I had even bugs where it went absolutely bonkers where it kept spinning indefinitely also the pitch values are sometimes xbox huge which are above 360 which I'm pretty sure that's way above the rotation transform. Here is my shitcode:

A day late this week but whatever, Last night was more trouble than worth posting that day. No screenshot either because nothing I've done this week is really worth showing.

Weekly Progress Report
-Finally got around to downloading inkscape and testing shading on it. My aim for this week is to draw a character and get a completed art piece out to you guys so I can show "yes, I can do art, and at the barest of minimums have it not be shit".
-Crushed the rest of the unformatted nametags in Nuclear Teagan.
-Crushed unformatted nametags in Glissando Arena.
Fugg, I managed to make it a bit less buggy so the tank pitch does change when its in sloped surface and moving over staircase, however I have absolutely no idea how to devise a formula that calculates how strong the pitch difference is from 0 to whatever height difference the collision box actor is to the chassis actor (which when this cbox actor is "active" it gives the player a item that triggers pitch changes), so in brutal doom the tank spawns on every frame 3 actors at the front and at the rear and 2 actors are using different spawning method that snaps the chassis back to pitch 0 (in brutal doom he just used different chassis frame to change pitch). By default the pitch is at 0. 
>I had even bugs where it went absolutely bonkers where it kept spinning indefinitely
It was mostly caused because I didn't managed to write a condition that snaps the pitch back to 0 which also had a calculation bug that I fixed.

The actual gameplay is unsatisfying outside of VATS and becomes trivial at higher levels, but the setting, characters, and narrative are very engaging.  Meeting all the people in the Mojave and learning about their goals, fears, etc. has been a lot of fun.

Resident Evil 4
Last time i played it was the PS2 version so it's been a while.I'm finishing the prision,i'm almost at the giant scorpion fight in the labirynth.There's a reason this game is the most popular in the franchise and i think it's the fact that the game is REALLY easy.Stuck at a bossfight? Just one shot the boss with a cheap rocket launcher, you died? nos the game becomes easier thanks to the dynamic difficulty.

   I really love the weapons animations, specially the first rifle and Red 9,i played the game with headphones and the sound design doesn't really hop up,you should just use the tv speaker.

SMT IV:Apocalypse
I'm only 8 hours in but the gameplay is so much better than IV, now your Jack Frost just can't use agi skills like any other demon, i think that's great balance wise, they also fixed the fusion system,better camera during exploration and just better attack animation response.The first two dungeons at least seemed like a huge improvement over the ones of the original, looking forward to explore other places.
   It's too early to speak about the story but Asahi is really retarded,she fucking saw her friends get brutally killed, his best friend come back to life and she goes on really happy go lucky with her life,what the fuck.Navarre seems to be the comic relief in this game and that blonde npc from some side quest joined for a dungeon and then went back to her usual life, i think that was

This got me thinking, are there any truly good, modern single player games out there anymore? Ones that don't have any sort of tacked on multiplayer or aren't designed with multiplayer in mind? I guess what I want from a good single player experience is for it to be a self-contained environment; one that expects you to learn skills related to it and then push your skills and knowledge of the game

The fact you think it could be played with phone controls is so funny already I'm not going to bother.
Anon, I'm really sorry. I tried it and a few hours in it's pretty much XCOM but much more lenient because your guys are insanely powerful with like chain lightning and infinite AoE through walls attacks, have a decent chunk of HP and you don't get hit as much because of dodge masteries/block.
> They were more inspired by Final Fantasy Tactics.
Shit, that's all you had to say to buy me.
Play FF14 pretty regularly, but Butterlord is good as well. Multiplayer isn't even the focus.

I've heard Foxhole is good as well as Hades. Personally I've been enjoying Witch Hunt despite it being rough around the edges. Fairly decent for a single guy developing it.

There's a lot more variety than Sekiro with the different weapons, skills and equipment sets you can put together.

Nioh 2 has good character customization but even the first Nioh has a large variety of outfits to choose from.
So I went back to Nioh 1 anyway and realized the depth of the endgame content. I've been having an easier time through the game with stuff that would frustrate me back in the day being much easier.

I've started a solo run of FF5 with the custom classes hack. Bartz only.
I'm about to hit the Fire Crystal and I'm already level 21, about 75% of the time I've been going with the Blue Mage. At this point in the game, I've just picked up ????, which combos magnificently with Vampire. Because I'm a solo character, I've got a decent chunk of HP at my disposal and the early-game utility of blue magic is so important that I'm trying to get it ASAP to put on other characters. I've played this game enough to where it's too easy for me normally, but this is a pretty effective challenge. I'm allowing myself to freely change between any class since I'm not so crazy that I would want to do single-class runs.
The hardest roadblocks so far have been Karbalos, who annihilates most solo characters, and Shiva, who spams Blizzara every turn. 

Anyway, the hack gives you a lot to play around with, as you can see. The only command my Blue Mage normally has is Blue - the other 3 commands can be freely switched around, so I could have a mage with literally no way of physically attacking if I really wanted to. On top of this, what commands you assign also influences your end stats. Grind enough and you can basically do anything. Plus it makes the GBA classes actually usable in the regular game, even if they are a bit... strong. 

You DO play RPGs without a full party, right? I don't even care if it isn't a JRPG, just tell us about it.

If you know every single pistol pickup and use the fresh weapon trick to get more ammo out of pickups you can't really do it unless you melee basically everything mid game because those mandatory mechs will fuck your ammo supply, and relying on melee only for every encounter is just about the most unfun way to play F.E.A.R (pretty much just learning the right pattern that exploits the AI and reset the checkpoint till the AI spawns in the right places, you can't wing it since you'll be out of health and medkits in no time)

You can't go no gun because some heavies / mechs are mandatory to kill and those don't take melee damage at all, also the 3 sentry just prior to the vault will never behave how you want them to and will kill you way too fast to consider running through, then there's the plethora of apparitions after the vault which will kill you if you try to melee them.
Replies: >>15456
Welp guess I won't be doing a no-gun run. Thanks for warning me, anon. Mechs completely slipped my mind. Can you even approach Heavies while tanking nail gun hits? I think there are at least 2 encouters in an open area with them.

Doesn't the Assassin in DD get bonuses for playing without pawns? Given that Assassin is the most fun class anyway, that doesn't sound too bad. I couldn't do a solo run in a game like DD though - dealing with pawns is half the fun of the game. 
Anyway, FF2 is a game that's actually easier to solo than it is to play normally. It turns out that when you do everything with a single character in that game, you become overpowered within the first 30 minutes and never stop. It's like... anti-grinding, and the only way I've found to tolerate that game.
Replies: >>15568
Heavies have a melee attack that takes precedence over everything else in their AI and fairly slow reaction, so basically you rush and do the heavy melee dance (go near enough to trigger it, then back away to avoid it, timing is tight as fuck realtime but with slowmo it's fairly easy) while doing headshots, 15 pistol bullet is enough on extreme.
The Assassin gives an augment to playing solo and the typical Assassin playstyle complements running solo, but you can use the augment with any vocation once you unlock it. It works well with Mystic Knights to exploit that sweet perfect counter, and is a flat +20% damage boost to help out glass cannon builds of any flavor. In the original release, it was an insane +70% damage boost and was a part of several optimized Ur-dragon builds.
