  1. Ghostbusters except possibly better?

    16 January 2019 - 07:35 PM

    Jason Reitman (Ivan Reitman's son) is directing, with Ivan producing. It's confirmed to be in the same universe as the first two films, and that is the original car (and music and sound effects). No one is cast yet and it won't start filming until summer. The release is set for summer 2020. Rumour is a younger cast. No word on cameos or role reprisals. But people are expecting the "old trains the new" trope.

    I'm cautiously optimistic. I'm glad more than anything that the 2016 reboot has been forgotten and its sequel-baiting plans shelved.

  2. The ESRGAN AI Upscale non-Duke thread

    10 January 2019 - 08:31 AM

    I've been showing this to people in adventure game circles with examples from Space Quest, Monkey Island, King's Quest, etc. I got a lot of requests to do more games so I took most of yesterday and wrote a script that extracts background resources from a Sierra game, converts to PNG, and upscales with ESRGAN (using the Manga109 dataset-trained model). I'm doing all the Sierra games and uploading them to a Google Drive folder. The results aren't always perfect but man is it ever impressive! I'll upload more as time goes on:


    Some examples:

    This one was taken from a hi res of the original scanned painted artwork at 512x356 found on the KQ6 game CD-ROM and it upscales to 2048x1460 with incredible results!:

  3. PC Classic Mini

    12 November 2018 - 09:12 PM

    So, apparently this is a real thing. At first I thought it was a joke when I saw it on Facebook. Apparently the games will come on SD cards? I didn't watch the whole video but I did catch him saying something about that. It shows him playing with an XBox controller, but he was also playing Quake 2 with keyboard and mouse at the end.

  4. I'm making an album to help me get out of debt

    30 October 2018 - 02:34 PM

    Due to stupid mistakes and poor decisions in my distant past, I've got a very sizeable debt looming over me and a very near deadline (tomorrow). I know I'll likely not meet it, but this will still help in the aftermath. I decided to put my skills to work and earn what I can instead of just asking friends and family for money for no reason but charity.

    Pre-order "Edifice" $5 CDN - get 10 songs up front
    Posted Image

    This started as a sort of re-release/remix album of an EP a friend and I made 6 years ago but grew into a slightly bigger project as I added new material to make this release more special. We intended back then to complete the album but we never did. The album project turned into something else as we began writing new songs. That album became "Ignition" which was released 4 years ago. After that our paths parted ways. We're still good friends but we just don't live close anymore. I suppose I didn't really need it, but I asked for and he gave me permission to use some of our old songs form both projects for an album to raise funds to help me and my family. It will also feature special new remixes of old tracks and a few exclusive unreleased tracks we made but ended up never using for anything.
    When you pre-order you'll get 10 songs right away. The final album will be delivered via email immediately when the album is released on Nov 30. The only reason this is up for pre-order is that I didn't have the time to finish it all before today and I wanted to launch it today. This way you still get most of the tracks and the remaining two will follow later on.

    I understand if this is not everybody's bag. It's heavily Christian-based and is primarily Hip-Hop, though there are other styles like rock and electronica thrown in the mix so there's a decent variety. Even if you don't care for it, send the link to somebody you think may be interested in it. I'd really appreciate that. I'm really proud of the work we did and putting this together, while born of an act of desperation, was a lot of fun and rekindled some old embers. I'm glad I found an avenue to get this unreleased material out into the world.

    So if you like it, share it. If you don't like it, send it to someone you dislike. I appreciate the consideration either way. :dukeaffirmative:
  5. Blackweb gaming mouse, scrollwheel nigh useless

    22 October 2018 - 04:33 AM

    So a while back my Blackweb gaming mouse (model no.: BWG66) started wigging out a bit when it scrolls. Sometimes it wouldn't scroll and eventually it started scrolling in the opposite direction. It just got worse and worse until now the scrollwheel is basically useless. I can't really go up or down it just goes back and forth and freaks out. This is murder for browsing and especially gaming. I tried taking it apart and seeing if there was hair or something in the way. There was a bit on the metal turning piece so I took off as much as possible. That seemed to help for a short while (this could be placebo), but in no time it was back to craziness and uselessness again.

    It's a gaming mouse so I'm sure it's not built in a standard way. And it doesn't appear so when I take it apart. There are a couple parts that are still contained and covered that I can't access when I take it all apart. I'm not sure where the sensor is to see if something is getting in the way or not. I cleared out all I could from what I could see. Is my mouse just shot? Should I get rid of it? Is there anything else I can do?
