2022.01.23 22:15 ForeverFinalGirl IJW: A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio (2019)
I have a love/hate for horror anthology movies. There are so many out there, that it’s hard to find the good ones when there are a ton of bad ones. Plus, it’s hard to get several good stories into one movie. Usually there’s a mix bag. And A Night of Horror: Nightmare Radio is actually not bad. Though, one of the stories was already on YouTube.
A radio DJ who hosts a horror themed show packed with tales of terror for eager listeners. Things take a twist when a child calls in to the radio station asking for help.
First off, I’ve seen one of the shorts on Alter (a YouTube channel that shows horror shorts). I’ve read that the shorts were on the various festival circuits. And then put it into one movie. But I’ve only seen one of them and it was pretty good. I think the main issue is the wraparound story and I didn’t have that big of an issue with it. It seems to have a lower budget than the shorts.
There are eight short stories including the wrap-around story. The wrap-around story is about Rod (James Wright) a radio DJ who tells scary stories and has his listeners tell scary stories as well. I feel James Wright did a good job during most of the movie, but I just felt the twist-ending was kind of a let down.
I feel the first short, Post Mortem Mary directed by Joshua Long is the strongest. It is about a young girl Mary (Stella Charrington), in 1840’s Australia, who is forced to photograph a two-week dead girl because the grieving parents want something tangible to remember their daughter. Post Mortem Mary is a creepy, slow burn story.
In Matthew Richards’ The Disappearance of Willie Bingham we see a new take on how far we should go punishing someone for a serious crime. Willie commits a horrific crime and instead of going with execution he agrees to an experimental procedure. This was the short that I had already seen.
Sergio Morcillo’s Gotas is another good one. It talks about how one teenage girl deals with trauma and past tragedy. Or I should say how the pain and abuse manifests itself to her now.
The rest are the typical mixed bag of good, bad and just okay. Not a whole lot of blood and gore but some. And some of the shorts are creepy and scary. Overall, not a bad anthology. Not as good as Creepshow and Trick or Treat, but decent enough.
Let’s get into the rankings:
Kills/Blood/Gore: 3/5 Sex/Nudity: 1/5 Scare factor: 4/5 Enjoyment factor: 5/5 My Rank: 3.25/5

2022.01.23 22:15 Lord_Draxis Is there a minimum tip amount to secure safe delivery?
Just wondering if theres a minimum amount I should tip to ensure I get a safe delivery. I just ordered pizza and the tracker says it was delivered but nobody showed up, so wondering if I just tipped too little and the driver got mad.

2022.01.23 22:15 JacketsTapeRecorder Some ideas for how to make the Civilization and Space stages not as monotonous as they are in Spore
I know Wauzmons has said that the Civ and Space stage aren't the current focus at the moment, but I just want to throw my hat in the ring for some ideas for these stages to hopefully improve them over their versions in Spore
CIVILIZATION STAGEFirst on the list of stuff to add to the Civ stage would be infantry. In order to resolve the existing issues with how Spore handles vehicles (in particular, aircraft, which i'll get into further below), I propose that all vehicles be unable to capture cities, and that ability instead be granted to infantry, and vehicles instead be reworked around supporting infantry - an example of a game that plays roughly along the lines of what I'm talking about would be Wargame.
SPACE STAGEFirst for space would be proper surveying to make worlds strategically valuable beyond just monetary incentive. Yeah, you could just colonize and terraform every single little dustball you find, or you could find a world that is extremely rich in minerals necessary for building fleets and other space infrastructure.

2022.01.23 22:15 Luke9753 Why do straight men always say "I'm not gay or no homo" when they want to compliment other men? Why some straight men can't take a genuine compliment from another man?
For example : "I'm not gay but you're a good looking guy." "I'm not gay but I like your hair color." "No homo but I think you're kinda cute." "No homo but you're an attractive guy."
I've never seen/heard a woman say, "I'm not lesbian but I think you're a pretty girl".

2022.01.23 22:15 No_Rex Looking at a unique old game: Midwinter
I have been wanting to write a post about Midwinter for over a year now, not sure whether it would fit better here or in /patientgamers. Finally decided to post here, since I am more interested into discussing the game’s mechanics over recommending you play it.
Midwinter, released in 1989, is a mix of first-person-shooter, strategy, and role-playing game. You defend your snowing island against invaders. While the FPS part of the game was technically great for its time (featuring a huge, freely traversable 3D world), the polygon graphic has not aged well. However, the more interesting part is hiding in the strategy and RPG parts of the game, which feature several in-depth and rather unique interlocking resource systems.
Time & Characters The first immediately unusual feature of Midwinter is that time is the main resource. The game plays on a map of a huge island, which is in the process of being overrun by invaders. If the invaders reach the last outpost, the game is lost. Whenever your character takes any action, the in-game clock advances, also moving the invaders further along the map.
At the start of the game, you play only one person. You are completely outnumbered. The first task is to recruit other characters to even the odds. However, you never play multiple characters at the same time, not even in a party or MC+NPC system. Instead, having multiple characters allows you to use each hour of the day multiple times. From 4pm to 6pm, one character could fight the enemy, while another character repairs a vehicle. One of the main challenges of Midwinter is to balance the immediate needs to stop some group of enemies with the long-term need of recruiting additional character (there is a total of 32 characters you can recruit).
You might be worried about time paradoxes here and, yes, minor time paradoxes can occur: You may play character A first, killing some enemies at 5:30pm, and then play character B from 4pm onwards. B will not meet the dead characters, even if they were killed 90 minutes later. However, this aspect is minimized by an enforced “time synchronization” that occurs every 2 hours. At the top of every second hour, characters need to stop playing to let others catch up. As such, time paradoxes do not really distract from the gameplay.
The recruitment of characters is also not straight forward: There is no quest system or monetary cost for recruitment. Instead, the characters form a web of friendships and animosity. Only characters who are liked enough by the recruitment target can successfully recruit. This leads to endless interesting choices:
For example, one very valuable character is a radio scientist, who is the only one able to break radio jammers and do long-distance recruiting (all other recruitment only works face to face). The problem being: He hates almost every other character! One of the only ways to recruit him is to first recruit his young daughter, who can then recruit him. The daughter is easily recruited, but too young to drive vehicles (see below: Space & Vehicles). So, to use the radio, you need to first get to the daughter, and then send some other person along with the daughter in a snow buggy (tying down another character for that time). OR, you could recruit the daughter and send her along on ski (taking very long and risky). OR, you could forgo radio recruitment in favor of just directly recruiting more friendly characters face to face.
In the later stages of the game, you juggle playing 10-20 characters in the same time frame (the 2-hour steps between time synchronization). You need to juggle logistic task of optimally using each character’s abilities to solve the needs at hand. Oh, and all characters are different, because …
Character stats & Health The game includes an RPG like character system. Each character has a number of stats referring to his/her abilities. For example, some characters might be fit, some good at shooting, some good at driving a buggy, and so on. While the stats are fixed (no leveling up), they vary completely from person to person. The game features at 4 different action modes (skiing, driving, flying, sniping) as well as various non-action activities (blowing up buildings, healing others, repairing vehicles). All are affected by various stats. So, one character might be really good at driving, another really good at sniping, and so on. Some characters are not even good at anything! You can play an old granny, who can barely drive, ski, or shoot. She is the old midwife, though and on friendly terms with almost every other character who you might want to recruit …
However, these skills are not the only status that changes your ability. The other is health. The game models each character’s health rather in-depth. Head, torso, and each limb have separate health stats which can go from healthy, over damaged, to knocked out. Different abilities require different parts of the body. E.g. you can’t ski if one of your legs is knocked out. However, you can still drive a snow body if you still have at least one good leg, but not if you have zero. Sniping requires arms, and so on. To make it even more involved, your characters also have stamina and exhaustion. The more exhausted you become, the harder all actions become. How quickly your exhaustion reduces depends on your stamina, on how long ago you ate the last time, and on whether you have slept (both eating and sleeping costs valuable time).
Characters can also heal and how fast they heal depends on whether another character cares for them and whether that character is a nurse or doctor.
Space & Vehicles You might suspect that the main cause of injuries is contact with the enemy. That is not quite true. While fighting can lead to injury, the more common cause are accidents while traveling. The whole skill system described above directly interacts with the first-person sections of the game. For example, your snow buggy driving skill affects how fast you can drive a buggy without crashing on a slope. Good drivers can drive fast even on heavy slopes, bad drivers will crash in the same situation. However, the game does not forbid you from driving fast with bad drivers. You see where this is going: A constant process of deciding how fast to drive (or ski, or fly). Driving faster uses less time that you need for everything, yet driving faster also increases your risk of crashing. And a crash not only injures your character, but also damages your vehicle…
Which is the last resource system in the game: There is only a limited number of functioning snow buggies (the fastest way of travelling and best way of fighting). You can repair those once they crash, yet that costs time. So, you always face the choice of where to allocate your vehicles? Do you give a buggy to a good driver, who may fight the enemy? OR do you give it to a popular character, who may go off to recruit others? OR do you use the buggy to transport injured characters or bad drivers along with you?
The vehicle resource system also extends to enemies. While the enemies do not use your buggies, there exist different type of enemy buggies. Most are fighters, but some carry ammunition and fuel supplies. If you kill enough ammunition tankers, the enemies will shoot at you less often. If you kill enough fuel tanks, they will move faster, giving you more time to achieve everything else.
A large part of the gameplay is looking at the zoomable island overview map, determining where enemies are advancing, where your buggies are at, and which characters currently use these buggies, before deciding what to do with each character in the next 2 hours.

2022.01.23 22:15 Raedil Problem hosting ATM6 server
I’ve been attempting to host a server for ATM6(1.16.5) for myself and a friend. The server operation is normal all the way up to and just past the EULA agreement request. It successfully check, downloads, and updates associated files and mods, but right after EULA agreement it drops into a crash/restart loop.
I’ve tried using java 8, 11, and 17 (fully uninstalling other) and even used openjdk versions.
I can host many other games fine, and i’ve hosted both modded 1.18 and 1.14 Minecraft servers (ATM7 and ATM4) with no problems.
I’m ready to give up on 1.16 entirely, but figure i’ll ask here first. I’m including a filedump link to the error i’m getting (starting from EULA agreement). It’s fairly short.
I’d greatly appreciate any suggestions that others have that might help it work for me. Thanks folks.

I am playing snes on a brand new 4k 75 in tv using an hdmi to av adapter. All Mario games work but I am having issues with others. The games work..but what happens is the controller isnt letting me advance in the game past the start screen so the game intros just keep playing. It's as if the controller isnt even plugged in. This happened for NHL 94, NHL 96 and DKC. For NHL 96 I was able to select a team to play and other options but can't actually start the game.
