Play through Shining Force
Data Page

I played through Chapter 1 the other night. Figure I might as well formally quest it.

Awesome! Hadn’t said it elsewhere: I expect a lot of crosslinking between media quests and #mediaclub. And similar to how we use threads for logging pens or thoughts, I figure we’d have one or more threads for any given artifact.

I started Shining Force recently, so I’ll return to it and start posting, and folks can jump in as they want! My main point is: quest threads can be as quest-meta as needed, and we can easily link elsewhere for deeper conversations. For instance, with games I might have a “let’s play” where I just log impressions. But I’m gonna make a lot of gamefaq info as well (like making a readable color-affinity chart for Skies of Arcadia…), and I imagine a lot of crosslinking going on.

Also also, after two battles, I wanted to play Battle for Wesnoth, in part because I’m not sure I can follow the pace of combat animations. It is soooo pretty, and slow. A lot of these classic games are slow for me…

My Nomad techniqually supports RCA style AV out. Ive been wondering if it might be cool to get one of those really cheap standard def AV->USB capture things, so I could take screenshot or video while I played. Havent been sure where id post that stuff though.

The hardware can be found online for like $10. Just gotta bother to do the research on if I want to do it, and if their are any difficulties running them on GNU/Linux.

I say go for it! talkgroup stores on a CDN/object storage for this very scenario! :slight_smile:

I recently found I could use the Discourse data explorer plugin to query uploads info (such as size). Currently it costs cents a month to host, but as costs rise we can run reports and move media into other places, that kinda thing.
