Just go back to /pol/ on your own, fren. Baiting a moderator into banning you after receiving a justified warning like that is just bad form.

We don't have a confirmed case yet but the government is in full damage control mode, banning the entry of yuros and guanacos. A woman just mysteriously died after showing signs of fever, so it's probably too late already.

Cancelling due to coronavirus feels like a mercy kill at this point not just for this year's event but the E3 brand as a whole.

@valodim: even Iced is getting the "data too long error" now and apparently registry isn't working again.

Drop by the discord server please, having most of us locked out of the forum seems like a realistic threat now.

Thank you for this.

All I saw was someone opening the door for mugen monetization. just like someone opened the door for tag mode ect. see what they did and using to make what you are doing better. AND if you think ppl are profiting on it is bad it must mean your always in the red cuz you make no money. but thats trying to turn your hobby into a business. if its just a hobby why get mad when someone wants to at least be in black for their efforts at 1 point. -That is the dream Walt... being in black for your effort
AceMillion didn't open the door for anything.

Repackaging other's peoples' shit is an old and worn out con people have been doing for almost two decades, you'd realize this if you actually bothered to read this thread. Ace didn't even invent the model of "taking donations" when he's just straight up selling access to the game.

Ace's sole achievement so far has been getting money from you, and the fact that you haven't even realized this even though people have tried to get this through your skull for two pages makes me question if you would be any good at hustlin'.

scientists use data not collected by them to sell books that energize the science community nothing wrong with that.
What Ace Million does isn't like a scientist referencing another scientist's data for his own research, it's more akin to a bootlegger printing wikipedia articles, putting his name on the cover and sell it to chumps to don't even realize they're getting ripped off (i.e. you).

It was actually a new-ish member who brought it up on discord, my guess was that it was an "insecure connection" warning.

re: the auction thread

Jesuszilla reported that Shin Rei (AKA 2Dee4Ever) is selling access to his discord which includes access to his WIP/beta builds for his compilation. This compilation is essentially a repackaging of content from various users of this community, with added tag code via the public add004 lifebar and some minor edits.

Considering that there is no easy way to access up to date work from Rei, who has admitted now that he does not believe the new work he did is entitled to be released publicly for free, this is akin to monetizing MUGEN, and furthermore, monetizing other people's content that he has not asked permission to use or credited properly. In response to the allegations and evidence posted, rather than making the work public or apologizing, Rei instead posted an hour long video mocking Jesuszilla and his facebook photos for his followers.

We at Guild do not condone any of the above behavior. We do not tolerate the monetization of MUGEN and will always encourage proper crediting of other's work.

As you can see, there's more space on the left of Thor and on the right of Cap. Interestingly, Cap's shield looks rounder in the 2nd shot which makes me think this is the better way to go
Because it is.

The spriters at Capcom were completely aware their work would be displayed on a 4:3 monitor regardless of the CPS/CPS2's internal resolution and made their sprites according to that.

This post isn't addressed to anyone specific, it's more of an editorialized version of my comments on discord over the past few days.

First of all, if you think that monetizing other people's works (even in a roundabout way like Rei) should be be a banable offense, I agree on principle. I was going to suggest doing that with the Retroversus guy last year, but then he fucked off on his own, so I didn't feel necessary anymore. Much like him, Rei hasn't posted in months and unless this thread somehow baits him in I doubt he's ever doing it again, he has no incentive to leave his safe space, so banning him would be a completely Pyrric victory. If you believe you or your friends have been wronged by Rei your best shot at getting back at him would be to report his patreon, but I wouldn't expect anything to come out of it since he's insulated himself by putting Discord invites behind a paywall instead of "his game" directly.

Second of all, it's important not to miss the forests for the trees, the really greasy thing here is monetizing "his game"; the hard drive donation...drive that sparked this conversation in the first place is quite honestly a nothingburger, and I'm going to explain why you shouldn't get hanged up on it.

1) The whole thing isn't even on a gray area since Rei isn't offering any direct reward, even if he's gouging his paypigs this shouldn't be a community concern. Our own @Jmorphman: had a similar experience and thinks the price is believable, so he might not even be bullshitting.
2) I don't believe he's actually made 800 USD out of people on the internet. Let's take a minute to examine Rei's internet footprint:

His youtube account, whose videos only seldomly have over 1,000 views:

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV_LJXcc0h5aos0ipHdJL3g/videos

His Patreon, where he graciously receives money from 9 (nine!) people:

https://www.patreon.com/2Dee4ever

You seriously believe a guy pulling these number is getting 800 dollars just like that? if a medium sized streamer or instathot had such a level of engagement they'd making over a million a year instead of shilling garbage like Raid Shadow Legends to make ends meet.

There's only two possible explanations a) Rei is getting money from RL friends and family, which loops back to "this shouldn't be a community concern" or b) Rei is seeding pot, and the donations so far are either greatly exaggerated or downright false. On either case you really, really shouldn't be losing any sleep over this.

Ademas so mucho mas caros en un analisis de capacidad/costo.

Hasta que los discos hibridos bajen suficiente de precio para reemplazar completamente los discos duros, lo ideal es tener un sistema con un SSD cargando el sistema operativo como dice E y un HDD (o mas) para almacenenar todo lo demas.
