I haven't seen any of that but I doubt it's not true. The discord thing is probably for security reasons in order to keep them from getting taken down. Discord is just a popular and easy to use platform despite everything else. When it comes to drama, you should actually try to pay attention if it's security related. Otherwise, I don't know if anything besides that really matters since crackers specifically don't get money from what they do since they don't usually, if ever, have their own websites to plaster ads on or beg for donations.

>hard to take down
Pick none. (((Discord))) bans people for saying nigger, none of the information is encrypted, it randomly locks you out of your account unless you attach a phone number. People use discord because they're fucking faggots that want a convenient centralized service that does everything for them at the cost of all privacy and digital autonomy.

The fact that so many modern "hacking" and cracking people are using it as their main means of communication is fucking hilarious and sad. I can't wait for the day discord gets a subpoena for some high profile retard and the feds make a big scene over it to make an example and sent a bunch of literal teenagers to jail for 20 years and suddenly everyone loses their fucking minds and switches to an equally pozzed proprietary spyware service because it was convenient and all their friends used it.

Pretty much none of this applies to the usual scene groups except for the usual nuke wars. CODEX had some drama when some nigger leaked an unobfuscated crack and handed a bunch of work to Denuvo for free but thats about it in recent years if you dont count the intermittent busts that have been going on since time immemorial.
tldr stick to scene releases and GOG and you wont even notice the dramafags.

Reminds of the console modders that stopped sharing hacks with the public and began disclosing info to companies for money. Good for them
Discord is responsible for disgusting elitism and degeneracy within groups. People wanted forums to return without realizing that discord is home to the ideals and tropes forums had back then. 
Not familiar with what scene is or gog (the website that holds discounted games for sale) if you dont mind explaining.
Which is the "safest" crack to use anyhow i keep seeing codex but most games contain shit from igg which is advised to stay away from

I imagine the introduction of drm forced some of the good ones to leave

For the uninformed, Reddit has manage to manipulate the value of Gamestop's share price an astronomical ~3,300% increase in a year, fucking over a bunch of hedge funds who went balls deep into shorting it and will be unable to cover their borrowing fees. Elon Musk also just tweeted in support of it like an hour ago, sending the after hours value to some $190. Besides getting interested in the stock market and sobbing about how I didn't buy some shares when it was $20 literally at the start of this year, I've decided to boot up Railroad Tycoon and OpenTTD again to improve my business prowess. 

This is a hybrid thread for both discussion of current events and business games. Also, would anyone be interested in playing OpenTTD cooperatively?

Just a reminder to not feel empathy towards retarded bag holders. Theyre holding gme stocks now because they got greedy and didnt want to sell at a -$50 loss, now theyre still down -$200 and coping by claiming theyre holding to fight the system

They had their THIRD chance this closing to sell at a lower loss. For the few that bought at $60 last week, saw a miracle $100 bump this closing, hope they sold

Obviously this franchise has fallen into the gutter ever since the switch to 3d. Obviously I can point to the obvious issues with these games like the linear corridors they claim are routes, The lacking amount of pokemon in comparison Gen 2 had 100 pokemon albeit some were planned for gen 1 but still, New games are lucky to crack 70-80 new pokemon I don't include regional variants as new pokemon, New games have a random gimmick as opposed to more Pokemon most for nostalgia baiting, Recycling plots from past games mainly the two new ones and even then you could argue that sun and moons twist was mimicking ghetsis, Modern pokemon games are a cakewalk in terms of difficulty well at least sun and moon/X&Y were, I quit the games at gen 7 because of this bullshit. The best thing about this entire franchise is the fan art and that's really sad.

>A couple of models and sprites isn't that much, that isn't an massive engine shift or some shit as your implying. 
You say that, but making graphical changes is a lot harder than it looks. You are correct in my assumption being just that, an assuption, that's why I said in my original post, and I quote
>so I feel like maybe Legends is the first game on the Gen 9 engine
And I also said
>Let's Go is the first game on the Gen 8 engine
However, Let's Go and SS's aesthetics are different enough that the same assets don't work quite as well between them.
>I've never heard that and it sounds like a load of bull, gen 7 features the same flaws and exact same style outside of the removal of chibis.
I actually do have a source
Note that this was before SS came out, so they're just talking bull about SS being on a significantly different engine. Granted, there are some changes to the lighting in SS, which do require some asset changes, but the work is probably more than you think and less than I think. Like I said, the base textures are probably the same, it's the textures that deal with how the lighting works that are significant. I'm not an expert on this, I only watched a video on how Pikmin 3 and Super Mario Galaxy did those sorts of things, but I am aware of the general concepts.
>I wouldn't call a game that uses dogshit textures inherently "so much work", it comes off as slapped together.
Effort doesn't always result in quality. You know the phrase "work smarter not harder", yes? Sometimes if you make a bad decision, no matter how hard you work on it, it will turn out like shit. Could also be a time problem. they have to shit these games out way too often, or I guess had to given they outsourced the DP remakes.
>There really isn't any point, they look low res and thats it.
I've seen the base textures of a few Pokemon in the Gen 8 engine, and it's about as basic as you'd expect. The 3DS textures have a lot of shit going on because they had to bake some effects into the models rather than let the engine do it's thing to the normals and speculars and shit. That's what I was asking about in regards to the prototypes, given we've established that both the models and base textures are likely standardized by Creatures for various other projects.

I feel like it should be pointed out, nothing actually forces new gens to have new engines. The legends trailer has the framerate of what i'd expect of the wild area.
And i really still feel like the shaders aren't completely new. Regardless legends is indev so i'm expecting it to be jank, this does not carry over to the released and quite poorly made /ss/.
>Could also be a time problem. they have to shit these games out way too often
You'd quite literally have to never look at your game to realize the textures on multiple overworld areas look like a steaming pile of shit. There's a point where something clearly had to be negligence.
The fucked up textures aren't even in minor places. And gamefreak have shown drastic laziness in multiple areas, even ones that came with the DLC and thus realistically had a much "easier dev cycle"; came out as cobbled together messes like the following mons.
People love to point at the idea of time constraints, but ignore the giant elephant in the room that is that what pokemon does normally is not proportionate to what is cut.
And we're talking about a series that cuts features so they can rerelease games easier, you really shouldn't be putting this type of faith in pokemon.

Aside from Game Freak wanting to do something new, which is arguably a useful idea. That having been said, you don't always have to re-invent the wheel, it's well documented how the Gen 1 engine was developed into the Gen 2 one. Sometimes a fresh start helps though, like with Gen 3.
>And i really still feel like the shaders aren't completely new.
I wouldn't know either way, it looks different enough that they could be, but given how some people think SS is running on the Gen 7 engine, looks can be deceiving. Could be a case of diminishing returns, for all I know. Or it could be the same shit, whatever/
>You'd quite literally have to never look at your game to realize the textures on multiple overworld areas look like a steaming pile of shit.
I didn't even pirate the game because I didn't care, so you're correct.
>even ones that came with the DLC and thus realistically had a much "easier dev cycle"
Didn't the DLC have even less dev time than the main game? Like, Isle of Armor started development some time around summer 2019 if I recall, Crown Tundra has a similarly quick turn-around.

Pokemon is the biggest franchise in the world and yet you wouldn't even get a hint of that from playing the games. Why do they even bother with them anymore when they clearly do not care? People will still buy their plushies and t-shirts regardless. Seriously, both look utterly soulless and couldn't keep my attention for more than ten seconds.

In the last 10 years, there have been a lot of platformers that I think will stand the test of time.
>The Messenger
>A Hat in Time
>Super Mario Odyssey
>Shovel Knight
>Super Meat Boy
>Rayman Origins/Legends
>Wings of Vi

The games are a lot about flow and going fast. Unlike the slower more methodical platforming of the NES era and the collectathon style PS1 era. What do you think? Have there been many great platformers released in the last decade? Have any slipped under the radar?

You just can't distribute the assets that belong to the company, but you can legally distribute reverse-engineered code that uses them and then write something in your website that says "guys, pwease dont pirate the game, you must own a legally purchased copy in order to use this! *wink wink*" and done.

No reason to add it then, as promising as it may be. Only complete games are eligible.

That's fine, just wanted to make note of the game in case I forgot since the thread is gone. I'll probably keep tabs on it for a couple years, maybe at some point I'll be able to call it a fully featured game.

What's this all about?
Fullderp is a game where one of us declares himself the champ and takes a ragtag team of six Pokémon assembled by anons into an online competitive Pokémon battling simulator.
To quote one of Showdown's mods...
>@MacChaeger: None of these people are youtubers
>@MacChaeger: They impersonate verlis to to gain notoriety and attract new members
>@MacChaeger: These people regularly trick others into getting locked
>@MacChaeger: this is the single most toxic group of players on PS

How does it work?
After the current champ calls "new champ", the first anon to claim the title is our champ. He uses the first six legal Pokémon suggested after his claim as his team. Champ can also call "new team" when the old one became stale (rule of thumb: 40-60 minutes). Champ plays in National Dex unless specified otherwise.
Absolutely no experience is necessary and everything is done in-browser.

1. Champ can't forfeit, intentionally throw a match, or timer stall.
2. Champ may not edit a set without the suggester's permission.
