to be entirely honest, I don't have much motivation ATM because I keep hitting a wall with CPU/SPC sync

I'm sure it can be done without getting into cycle accuracy and without ugly fat hacks, but... how? Anything I could throw at it has failed.

well, maybe... I attempted asking at byuu's forum though, and didn't get much help


also doesn't help that I keep wanting to improve the hardware renderer, but at that point there's not much that can be done without impacting performance and/or ending up with a behemoth mess of code

(I also had an idea for speeding up software rendering, did a test to see how much I'd gain, but in the end it was disappointing)

the software renderer can't really be made faster, though, and it can hardly be threaded

Typical server maintenance, server reboots, which implies I get disconnected from my IRC networks because I use a BNC on my server.

No big deal. ZNC quickly reconnects to all the networks, except one. Guess which?

That's right. EFNet. After 10 minutes of 'connection timed out' and 'connection refused because I say so', it finally felt like letting me connect.


And that's not the only gripe I have against EFNet. A non-exhaustive list:

1) Its amazing stability: Agent004 would keep going down until I fixed its auto-reconnect code. I run a similar bot on another network, it had the same auto-reconnect bug and it would stay on for ages.

2) No services (ChanServ, NickServ, etc...). Any decent IRC network comes with those services, but EFNet is still the Wild West of IRC.

3) Nicks limited to 9 characters. Would adding one character take too much RAM for their Pentium II servers?

And more generally, EFNet is stuck in the stone ages of IRC.



Okay, let's not make this a simple rant against EFNet. Instead, let's consider the possibilities we have for moving:

1) NoLimitNET, a small network I go to which is fairly good. Also, there's a WiiU hacking related channel there, which is more active than EFNet's #wiiudev.

2) #3dsdev on Freenode. For me, this one is a no-no. I would rather leave than go there.

3) Another idea? Post.


The main issue is that the top hackers (who are also the most knowledgeable people) seem to be content with EFNet, so... bleh.

As said on IRC i'm for a move but if the core presence does not move it is useless sadly.

that's the main issue, yeah, the core is perfectly happy with EFNet


Posted by twocows
What about a bot in each channel that cross-posts messages from the other channel on the other network? That way it wouldn't matter which of the two channels/networks you happened to be on.

this sounds like more trouble than it's worth, honestly

just see the first post, you'll see how long it takes for my ZNC to reconnect to EFNet after deliberately disconnecting (not even a netsplit or anything)

it's not even something wrong with ZNC, it reconnects nearly instantly to all the other networks, but it needs 10 minutes or more for EFNet

dunno if they optimized it hard, too


considering they do things like replacing BRR sound samples with preprocessed ADPCM samples (and repurpose an unused SPC700 instruction to handle playback of those sounds)

well the idea was pretty much given up, it's not really worth it anyway

the 'merge' would mostly be 'redirect all activity to Kuribo64 and repost the important shit there', although that would be a good occasion to update the tutorials and other junk


as for being careful, Kuribo64 isn't a total cesspool either, it mostly has the same moderation standards as this place (see, Margen67 was banned ages ago for example)


technically: this board would be replaced with a 'go to Kuribo64' page with a timed redirect
IRC post reporting would need some tweaks too (Kuribo64 posts are reported to its official channel which isn't #3dsdev)
this would reduce maintenance, too


I still wonder if it's worth the effort though, given the state of the 3DS scene

I can't reconnect Agent004 currently because efnet is being trash.


Ironically, my BNC (which runs on the same server as Agent004) connected fine (well, after the usual ~10 minutes of efnet shittiness). But for whatever reason, Agent004 just doesn't connect.


See you tomorrow or something, I guess. In the meantime, no IRC reporting. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Want a fun challenge? Port your emulator to the 3DS :P

yeah, it should, memory protection might get in the way tho.

Posted on 08-29-16 01:36 PM, in Hiring administrator Link | #1076
(also, IRC reporting is back. better late than never. efnet is still trash)



Anyway, let's try this again.

I end up checking 4dsdev less and less, and it's not going to get better. But I don't want to let it rot or close it.

I want someone who would be interested in administrating the board. That person would be given carte blanche, except for the following points:

* no gross power abuse
* no elitism -- shooting down a retard is okay, shooting down someone who is willing to learn because they don't already know everything isn't.
* no North Korea administration -- permanently banning people at the slightest mistake isn't acceptable, neither is rejecting all criticism you don't like.

The administrator will be placed under my authority, I will remain available and occasionally check the board to ensure everything is allright. I mostly don't want the board to get spam or other shit lingering for days or weeks before I notice.


PM me if you're interested. Although I will say, if you're not a non-GBAtemp 3DS scene regular, your chances of getting the position are pretty slim.

Maybe the boot ROM can only be read when PC is within that region.
