Fix for Amnesia buzzing sound, Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit

NB - same fix that worked with Penumbra seems to work with Amnesia too :) Penumbra Painful intermittent buzzing sound. Neither a direct "pasuspender" nor the above, nor changing the output using options > sound > output seems to fix the problem. So we're going to have to go for the throat: since pul...

Re: FIXES: Humble Bundle on Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit

Bad idea: some applications can't do without pulseaudio, for example Skype. That's not true (and never was). Skype just doesn't display other options as long as it detects presence of PulseAudio. I run Ubuntu with ALSA and I had to configure some things but now it works. Here are instructions to ma...

Re: FIXES: Humble Bundle on Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit

Are you running the binary from the gish directory? If the working directory isn't correct then the program won't be able to locate resources correctly.

The beard belongs to nobody. It bows to no greater power. It suffers no master.

YOU belong to the beard :shock:

Re: The "John's beard" thread! - Noooes, the beard is gone!

Sal tried to shave the beard, but the power of the beard was such that, instead of being cut off a new beard grew on Sal's face too! Let it be known: whosoever dares defile the sacred beard will soon be sporting a magnificent beard of their own. So it is written, and such is the truth for all believ...

Re: Anyone for Jam?

Can we not have this devolve into a thread where everyone wents their pathos? Perhaps I hit a nerve - really all I meant to say was that I'm a bit apprehensive: I'm the only indie game developer I know, and I'm worried that when I meet some actually real people It'll be brought home rather brutally ...

Re: Anyone for Jam?

what happens is you end up making an outcast out of yourself (especially if you live in a really small community ... I went to a school where there were only 20 kids in my class, and 30 kids in the entire town.) There were only 7 kids in my class, myself included. By the end of High-School I'd know...

Re: Anyone for Jam?

Okay, so clearly I rubbed a few people up the wrong way saying I'm "almost normal in real life", but you have to understand that to me "normal" is practically and insult. "Normal" people are boring. But what they're not is taped inside bins and rolled down flights of stairs. Perhaps I'm still gettin...

True. Coupled with the fact that he felt he had to say it, which by law of the internet makes me highly doubt the truth behind such a statement...also coupled with the fact that he very clearly is a geek. Normally someone would precede such a statement with "no offense" or something along those lin...

Something like that. My brother got angry with me and deleted all my saved-games :(

Re: Anyone for Jam?

Good point. I'm practically a normal person in real life (I'm a "closet" geek). I might not fit in with those geeks who have truly embraced their geekiness :? I find the geeks who can't quite come to terms with it are the more awkward brand. I prefer to think of myself as more like Batman. Student ...

Re: Anyone for Jam?

John and Anton probably stay out of the bad parts of los angeles ... Ergo they both live in a bunker. This explains so much :shock: The awkwardness is so fucking thick the moment you step in the room for most of these events that you just want to get the hell out as fast as possible. Good point.

Re: Anyone for Jam?

just stay out of detroit, new york, or los angeles. ¿¡¿What's wrong with Los Angeles?!? It's like Australia: only tourists get bitten/eaten by sharks. And in America, I'm sure, only tourists get shot. I mean, every time I speak to John I ask him if he's been shot and he tells me "no". How can this ...

Re: Anyone for Jam?

Everyone who makes games seems to live either in the US or Sweden. It's bizarre :|

Still, there must be some Italian indie game people, if there's a jam in Verona (or maybe I'll be the only person who show up) :?

Anyone for Jam?

I've never participated in a Game Jam, but it sounds like a lot of fun. Trouble is I'm too terrified or being shot, stabbed, crucified and set on fire to go to America. Luckily The Global Game Jam is coming up :D I'm in Trento at the moment, so my options are really Munich or Verona (or... Munich )....
