Resurrecting this thread out of the .tokyo archives. Any sushi rolls here own a VR headset? Any rolls just curious about them? What games/experiences are you trying these days? Any small projects that you would recommend trying?

The last thread was made just as the two main PC headsets (Oculus Rift and Vive) were coming out in 2016. In the two years since, we've seen slow but constant growth in both headset sales and the number of available games. In addition, the lineup of Windows Mixed Reality headsets is making room-scale VR with hand tracking more affordable than ever. Beat Saber is helping to push VR to arcades across the country and I really hope this is the time when VR makes it to the mainstream.


File: 1537234245271.jpg (35.25 KB, 658x370, Magic-Leap-One-AR-System-6….jpg)

"VR" headsets still kind of suck based on what I've tried. I'm waiting a few more generations till we get 8k resolutions at least, plus things like millimeter wave antennae built in for high bandwidth wireless. The SLAM they use could be updated as well, probably would make sense to use something like solid state lidar for that compared to the finicky webcam tracking systems they currently use.

Also, if this isn't too off topic, is anyone here interested in AR headsets as well as VR headsets? Magic leap recently finally started shipping their devkits, and while it's not anywhere near as good as the hype, it's a step up from the hololens in terms of FOV. Another generation or two of increased FOV and lighter weight and I could almost imagine using something like this to replace my phone.


I tried a VR headset once at a local convention five or so years ago but I got motion sickness from it.

I have a rift and right now I've been playing a bunch of Vox Machinae and Pavlov. I got this thing back in January and I really enjoy all the games I got for this thing, even emulating some older gamecube games using it feels refreshing. As for my recommendations, Vox and Pavlov are both great if a little arcadey, Onward is an excelent milsim, Beatsaber with mods is a treat and will help you get your vr legs.


Try Resonite. It is better than VRChat in nearly every way.


i've been trying to enjoy the blade and sorcery full release but i think i've gone too schizo to use my headset anymore. cameras constantly scanning my house/room, controllers tracking my movement and gait data. just feels very invasive to my aging schizo brain.

This is my phone wallpaper right now, but I've been trying to make a good home screen for a while now, so I'll probably change it. Any recommendations for launchers and/or home screen makers? (I don't know where to put this in my comment soooo btw I use launcher95)


i have multiple monitors, plus a laptop each has a dedicated folder i set to slideshow.

Did Sushi contribute to any open source projects? Or, have you discovered any cool ones worth sharing?

I have found this one!


Not sure whether it really counts as contributing, but I like to give feedback or report bugs or other issues for the game engine of my choice. It's very small and obscure.

File: 1472677608329.png (464.02 KB, 750x625, 1458542465088.png)


How much does the average sushi roll's computer cost?
How many of you own fancy GPUs/processors, and how many of you prefer simpler/cheaper hardware?
Does anyone own more than 2 or 3 computers? If so, why?
As always, keep it comfy~
Thanks for your input!

I have a little acer netbook I got at a pawn shop. I barely use it, but it's comfy. When I first got it I liked to think of it as my little hacker box. I did some programming in it, a lot of distro hopping, and so on. Sometimes I hold on to that old feeling, but I don't really have much to do with a computer, y main device is a tablet as some 80% of my screentime is reading books and I do it in bed, on a comfy chair, or sometimes at a table with a notebook, which could be anywhere.
I also get very anxious about what I am running and what my workflow should be like. It's very stupid, but I can't seem to help it. I like a minimal linux box but I constantly feel I should be using this or that environment or programming language. Ultimately, though, I have nothing really worth doing on a computer. So I spare myself the trouble.


File: 1638763378239.jpg (616.62 KB, 1468x2308, came-prince-rawscan.jpg)

I built a PC for myself in 2019…
Athlon x4 845
Radeon Pro WX4100
32gb RAM

Adding up the parts, it comes up to about $640, but I spent more due to it being my first box, and making a few missteps during the process. It's a low end box, but it does most of the tasks I ask of it, so I'm happy with it. I'm happy I built mine just before the prices of GPUs ballooned in to insanity.
I mainly run Linux on it, though I have a Windows partition available just in case I need it.

I urgently needed a PC for developing an Android app for my thesis. Using my company's laptop wasn't comfortable, even ignoring all the spying software.

Unfortunately, I had to buy my setup during the release of a new component generation, so I paid a premium. My setup includes a 13600k CPU and a 4080 GPU, costing me around 2500 euros.

I also have a giant OLED screen, which I use as my only monitor. I absolutely love it for gaming, but the font rendering doesn't seem as good as on a regular LCD. Additionally, on uniform light backgrounds, there's slight evidence of burn-in.

Regardless, I love my 'puter! All of my friends are inside it!


File: 1720110995425.jpg (505.93 KB, 3101x3575, __original_and_1_more_draw….jpg)

I have 4 computers:
A ThinkPad P52 I use as a daily driver with an eGPU setup (RX 6700)
A Thinkpad P51 I used to use as a daily driver until the charging broke somehow (I think it might be a port issue but I haven't found the right part yet)
An old Ryzen Ideapad 330
An old desktop with a 2008 Athlon
An old Dell Latitude a first gen i5
I used to have a T420s when I was a teen and carry it around everywhere with the dock plugged in

I'm emotionally attached to all of these machines. I used to always make sure to use my secondary computers for some kind of task because of the memories I held using them. They all had little quirks and annoyances and were generally underpowered compared to my current PC, but that didn't stop them from providing me with many comfy days.

Hello everybody, I need a comfy place to talk about VNs. /vn/ on 4chan is filled with literal pedos who only talk about eroge, and I don't like Reddit's format enough to use r/visualnovels. So what have you all been reading lately? What are some great games that we've been missing out on?
10 posts and 2 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.


Are there any non-eroge VNs out there worth checking out? I love visual novel as a medium for storytelling, but sex scenes tend to break that immersion for me, I just want to get comfy and get lost in the story. I don't mind occasional nudity or whatever, like with films, but no porn pls


Pretty much all the big name VNs have an "all ages" version with the sex scenes removed.


All the "when they cry" VNs are awesome


VNDB has a "No Sexual Content" tag: https://vndb.org/g235?f=&m=0&s=33w

I also like reading through NaNoRenO entries. There are some pretty good ones, they're always very short and almost never sexual.

I'm trying to build my own CPU in an emulator but I'm too retarded to make it work. I might take a break and focus on occult research instead for a while. I'm too retarded for computer science.


Computer science and occult research are basically the same thing to me :D


This is really cool, can't believe it's made in godot of all engines.

Let's talk coding and software, sushis, because I don't do enough of it and I really should. Let's hear about projects you're working on, stuff your coding, learning. Trade secrets, info, tips, whatever. Programming isn't something that should be done alone in a corner.

I guess if we need a thread starter, I want to brush up on my coding skills. I want to find something to play around with, something not as mainstream as the stuff like Java and C, but will still be useful in a professional setting, something I can make usable stuff out of.

Inspired by the recent discussion I started reading "Categories for the working mathematician", it really feels like wizardry! But even though I am able to follow the text for the most part, I realize there's a lot I don't know which is mentioned as examples, eg. the tensor product for groups. So I might want to go and fill those gaps, say, reading Dummit and Foote (though then would I finish?), and then, who knows, I might want to read some algebraic geometry (Hatcher?), and also fill up the gaps in linear algebra beyond the basics of vector spaces, matrices and vector calculus to which I've been exposed.
I was thinking of reading the HoTT book as well, which I think kind of overlaps with this stuff. Higher mathematics is really nice! But it's so damn huge, I feel I'll never get to the point where I can read a book and understand all of it's content.


I've just started descending the abyssal rabbit hole that is constructive mathematics and type theory. Maths is truly terrifying; the areas of study and seemingly infinite and each one is too deep to ever gain mastery over.


>constructive mathematics and type theory
Ohhh that sounds tasty. Does it related to Ocaml?
Unrelated, I've been thinking of picking up some webgl for some interfaces I want to make later, and maybe for games. Anyone played with it?


>Does it related to Ocaml
Yeah, the ML family is ths major representative of the typed lambda calculus and of type theory. Constructive mathematics is mostly done with another branch mostly in that family, of proof assistants like Coq or Agda.
I'm starting to learn about it. It seems more convenient than regular opengl, as I always struggle with details when handling arrays and memory in C++. But besides that, it's not a whole lot different, just a bit more convenient. I don't know if it is significantly slower, but the point is that it uses the GPU as well so once the primitives and shaders are sent to memory it shouldn't be that slow.

Made a couple of VNMaker scripts some time ago that streamlined execution of a couple of minigames for a certain VN. It took me about a month and a half, but the biggest hurdle was understanding how everything worked under the hood (VNMaker uses java and coffeescript, which is like a branch of javascript…). Made me feel very hacker. Got many thanks and a reward but the VN hasn't been published yet, which makes my feelings swing between fulfilled and unfulfilled…

An operating system that respects your freedom
>why would I use it?
If you are tired of having your OS use you and always wanted to use your computer instead
>What do you mean by freedom?
Write your own programs. use source code from the internet in seconds. update when you want to not when it tells you.
Want to run a website? cool! you can set one up in minutes.
Want to adjust your hardware to your liking? Awesome!
Want to stop or make a new feature to a program you use every day? Go for it!

Its your computer! use it how you want!

depends on the speed of the device. some of my old usb flash drives from like 2012-2018 take forever (25+ minutes). but sd cards ive been using lately take maybe five minutes. actual CDs will take 40+ minutes.


I agree - it is steadily getting better but I always felt like you have to settle for inferior software and support when doing creative work.


I don't feel comortable with Linux. I'm more used to BSD but Linux is great for all kinds of little projects and is much more usable for the average person. Gaming is the only drawback that kills its mass appeal. I also feel the Linux community has become another snobby elite in group and totally forgot the original mission of GNU and Linux and now its little more than a cult. Sad.


I'm using Linux Mint and it's pretty good. The only complaint I have is that I can't run Lightroom on it. But the android app works well enough for me, so it's not that bad overall.


File: 1717330831054.jpg (208.58 KB, 1882x1500, GJCYMlLWsAMJd2Z.jpg)

Hmm… I will have to take that back. The software that I currently use - Bitwig, Unity, Blender and Rider - are all great and seem to be actively supported on Linux.

I bet you can't even speak 7 languages. I learned tamil just to read a signpost that showed up in the background of some obscure meme, and it only took me 1 week.

Tibetan is really hard though.


Nah, it's done. Only God has those memories now. I'm okay with it.


It's not on my computer, it's the copious amount of garfield porn I obsessively hoard

my diary. for some reason i went the weirdo route and didnt just get a paper one. there's 101 entries there, about one every two weeks. i have a lot of issues with memory, so its the best record i have of my life and stuff that happens >~<
