Best retro MMO. Anyone playing on Ephinea?

>>242 Always wanted to try PSO, as a kid I wanted the Gamecube version so I could get a Tails chao in SA2:B, and now as an adult just to see how it'd run on a Dreamcast in 2022 and if it'd be fun, never played an MMO before so having my first be something like PSO might make me gloss over the outdated aspects of the game. Will probably have to look into it eventually if I do go through with it one day.
>>242 I've actually set up a private server for this game, although it only lasted around a month and I didn't have a lot of time to play on it. You can set up a local server pretty easily, just download the game off of archive.org.

Favourite retro computer? Mine is the Fujitsu FM Towns, mostly for its pioneering use of CDs and its Japanese computer games being superior to their PC-98 counterparts, although it died off a lot sooner. Just another blip in the Japanese computer scene.
I like that CD slot.

>>73 One of my favorites is my Macintosh Centris 650, mostly because it's fun to have a hybrid Mac/Unix machine to mess around with.

Here's a really dumb setup I put together for a few future videos. Three different UNIXes on three different architectures, all with some shared history.

Help how do i precisely draw reflections and refractions of an under/above water wave or surface imagery like picrel The colors and shapes of the reflections and refractions confuse me most especially with realism as concern Especially the cylindrical wave shape, reflection of objects other than the ocean floors.... seems like wild guessing so i wanna know the rightest and position maybe by math or whatever projection solution
/ic/ already told you what to do

The remake is out, did anyone here play this?
I have not played it but I definitely will. According to a Twitter post by someone affiliated with the game (can't exactly remember who) it's 100% uncensored. I've heard it contains some freaky shit, really looking forward to playing it. Although I don't think it's a remake, just a remaster.

I like listening to old Grateful Dead concert recordings on archive.org. It's not that obscure but pretty retro.
(109.82 KB 778x944 Dejiko 233.jpg)
Not particularly obscure, but I've been listening to Ruins a lot recently, they're a Japanese progressive rock/avant-prog/zeuhl group. Really intense, but complex stuff, almost punk-like. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8m9wFAwR_Qs

>>92 His modern stuff is great too. I still can't believe this album was made entirely by one person. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIu9uPRXB5o

Recently transferred ~500 albums to my PC. Varied range of genres: electronic, funk and soul, hip hop, jazz and fusion, rock and metal, etc. My funk collection is easily the biggest though. It's mostly 70s and 80s stuff from the USA, Japan and UK. Fav artists are Prince and Parliament/Funkadelic. Absolute banger here: https://youtu.be/HSXUCrVFFrM
>>14 >format FLAC, I hate streaming due to Quality of Life issues. >how big is your collection around 1.2tbs. >what are you collecting Argentine music. All of it. I've got straight from source rips of the earliest recorded music in my country. I'm also well read (heard?) on late 80s seattle alt rock. Musical shitposts are kinda my weakness. >do you have some treasures or some neat thingamajig? I've got a bunch of CDs of local bands known only to my neighbors. Some are -extremely- good experimental/psych rock from bands now gone that only I and a number of friends will ever remember. I've got a technics 1200. My dad was a DJ and we had one for old time's sake. I cant post anythign from those bands tho so have some siouxie inspired post-punk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly3Ns1SVyZU

Retro Visual Kei anon 02/01/2022 (Tue) 14:53:19 No. 2 [Reply]
Does wapchan enjoy visual kei? >What is Visual Kei? Visual Kei is a musical movement that originated in Japan in the mid-1980s. Appearing out of Japan's punk and metal scenes, visual kei is an aesthetic, rather than a genre, pulling imagery from gothic rock, punk, shock rock, glam rock, speed metal and hair metal, often wearing elaborate costumes and flamboyant hair. The movement expanded beyond it's hair punk and glam metal roots in the 1990s to cover a vast array of different subgenres and genres, ranging from extremes such as brutal death metal to accessible genres like synthwave. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18H2Uc9_7I0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNTv-tDtYvU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvY7zc0a-7Y https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81-czr9Zano

>>6 Same here. With the first Internet connection at home I could watch and listen to the original anime openings of cartoons I saw on TV in the 90s; soon I discovered visual kei with groups like X-Japan, Dir en Grey (I even went to one of their lives), Malice Mizer and so on. I started to play music because of the impact J-rock was having on my life.

Does CASCADE count? Listening to Butterfly Limited Express for the first time was an experience. It felt nice in the moment, even if everything else felt like absolute shit. although now, I can't really listen to it with the same nostalgic sense, only to pass time and act like things are fine...
>>2 I love visual kei! I saw Dir en Grey live twice over a decade ago and still get excited for all their new records despite them not really being what I would call visual kei anymore.
>>2 Since this thread is on a slow board I don't feel too bad about posting in it. I am a fan of visual kei. I've been into it since about 2011. Here is a favorite track of mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27WFd8PoDBw
