Off Topic / Re: Movie Remakes
« on: September 12, 2019, 06:44 PM »
I guess Disney films are considered classic stories, Shakespeare plays are always relived and reenacted, just like old songs by Elvis, The Beatles, James Brown, Michael Jackson etc are all classics and constantly covered & remixed, told in a new, fresh way, same story but apply modern creative and artistic methods. And it's a way for new upcoming actors and actresses to showcase their talent and be part of stories they loved in their childhood.

Personally speaking, I don't like any Disney remake, but I was a huge fan of Disney growing up, I loved me some Disney as a kid.

That's a good point. There have been tons of movies in the past that's been done over and over to fit the times it was released in I am sure that there will be new remakes of the current Disney movies. Heck, I would be so bold to say that Toy Story trilogy might receive a remake.
I bet the current generation that are growing up watching these movies might appreciate them more than the future remakes of say Aladdin 3 in 2040. Because I am the same, I watched some of the remakes because of curiosity, and I was for the most part disappointed. There's too much gender politics in these movies, it just sickens me.

You don't give the green light around here.

You're right. I'm only here to give red lights to decrease annoyance level.


IF you don't like my polls, and topics, simply avoid them.



You don't have to comment negative remarks every time someone opens a new thread saying something you don't agree with, but you do...
For a long period of time, there have been people in pursuit on some of the topics I make, giving nothing worth of contribution to it. At least there are people here that are capable of replying with decent enough intelligence to contribute. That's something I do appreciate.
There are topics and posts I would like to reply to, but choose not to. There's not always a reason to start fire somewhere, unless it's called for. 

I don't think I am like Komodo, but sure I can think, reflect and grow from what I have discovered through myself and others. So that I can perhaps give my opinion in detailed fashion if I want to. Rest, I am pretty happy, frantic and crazy mofo XD But if you can't roll with that, roll into the lava, because I got the high ground xD

Don't have to make a poll every time you open a thread.
For example, this particular poll is one of the worst I've seen.

I miss the old days where movies were more like a form of art, something that people made because they loved making them, instead of what we have today: commercial and political trash that's all about who uses the most impressive cgi
Indeed, just look at the third act of Avengers Endgame, where Captain Marvel have her whole LGBTQ behind her, representation and diversity. She just messes up all the enemies with ease, she even overpowers Thanos so that he is forced to use one infinity stone against her. Good thing I am done with the MCU now.

Tron remake was good. Just because whole movie is about special effects.
Probably not many good remakes out there. That should be forbidden and ppl should stop supportting them with money for cinema tickets. Otherwise they'll just continue to release same cgi crap over and over.. Look at Jumanji.  :-X
Tron was a CGI fest, and acceptable at best. People will continue to throw money where Nostalgia is being advertised. It is a greedy business practice. I want something original.

I really dislike movie remakes of classic animation movies. I recently watched Aladdin 2019 and honestly I wasn't all that impressed. The ending was disappointing, it simply promoted Hollywood agenda that female is the future. This itself have been a trend in movies for over a decade now, where women gets to carry torches after men.

Original Disney animated movies had so much more charisma and emotion in them. So when you view the remakes, you will instantaneously feel safe and related because you already know what will happen and how everyone feel. The Lion King looks completely soulless and devoid of any emotion. So you have the source to look at, so you basically know how they feel in real life, although it is epic CGI no doubt.

The only remake I can get by is The Jungle Book, that's about it.

Why not all games bo3? Would be more interesting...

Because it's faster with bo1. But if demand for all games to be bo3, we can.

what map should I use,there are so many maps, some are hard , some are very easy

Any map within reason really. It is up to both player to decide the difficulty.

franz & fab have good maps e.g.

General discussion / Re: Fall Calculator (module)
« on: August 17, 2019, 11:14 AM »
Quite true, it is like hand holding. Why? Because it will basically have you prepared. I asked because, I was in a BIG zar RR with a couple of friends, and I didn't make a clean drop. So I thought of this fall module that could assist like crate finder. People seemed quite positive to the idea, so I thought to bring it up here. People rope on different resolutions by choice or they are stuck on one particular resolution. I happen to choose my own resolution, but some could say ''Well choose a higher resolution''. My reply would be ''I am used to it''. Then that person with no surprise COULD SAY ''Well, people are used to rope with parachute''  :D

But actually now that I think of it. It was a bad idea to request such module. Why? It is  basically like HAND HOLDING! Like with this crate finder feature! It tells you where the crate is, and with this fall module it will tell you when to react during a drop. But with higher resolution you do get to see more of the map and some could say ''Well Kradie, that's more hardcore'' But then with no parachute, it is more hardcore.  :D ;D :D ;D :D

General discussion / Fall Calculator (module)
« on: August 16, 2019, 09:35 PM »
During a fall in a rope based scheme, particular in BIG Z RR. You will want to know when to react before hitting the surface ground/object. This can help aid player knowing when to move etc. The free fall module will activate during a fall, and give you timely estimate when to fire rope and continue. How? Well, in the free fall, a count down will appear over the worm's body as it is falling, counting down when closing the surface from 5 or 3. When it hits zero it hits the ground literally. On one second it means 1 second to react before hitting the ground.

This idea I give to anyone who wishes to purse it and make it a reality. It would be helpful during falls.

Thanks.

Schemes / Re: Parachute in Rope Based Schemes
« on: August 16, 2019, 07:29 AM »
I was wondering when this thread was coming to an end. I am glad to it finally ending now. Now that Komodo's ego have finally stopped burning. Ego and ignorance can cloud one's comprehension of reality, but do I fault him? Do I regret having this discussion with him? Hard to say, and no, I do not regret. Here is why. There are can be many factor of a man's delusion and unwillingness to see, and accept others point of view, and perhaps facts, but Komodo shuns it away with arrogance and giggles like it is some kind of sandbox for children. I do not regret having this debate, but It was exhausting. But the info provided by both parties can prove useful for the curios reader, so that person that read can make their own decisions.

No problem Mr Komodo. I am glad you had your fun.

WA has a nearly unlimited skill ceiling because as the the rope gets shorter, you get more speed, to the point where it becomes imperceptible and impossible to consistently operate within those margins. It's possible to rope just as fast in zar, but people don't, because if you miss that wall-hugging pump outlaw it's 70 damage.
Speed is absolutely necessary in ZaR, people gain this with short rapid burst of rope, or long extensions. It is a matter of preference and how that person have mastered the required preference. E.g, I do extreme smooth and fast scrolls in w2w in zar, because It works best for me. While some chooses different approach, a more safer way. If I am on right bottom side, I need to be extremely fast to do a push up and commit to rapid scrolls/dragon if need be. Because of this, I put myself at risk, I need to focus with my eye on visual cues, how to do a clean push from the bottom and all the way to the top. This can prove tricky at times depending on how tight the area is.

ou aren't arguing in good faith. Komo has won this argument half a dozen times already with facts, common sense and logic while you rely on schoolyard bullshit like "I know you are but what am I?" Zar could be a superior league scheme but it reduces the role of the rope to utilitarian A to B transportation.
I am not arguing, this is not a schoolyard, we all are having a debate. I have presented my opinions, my thoughts, my belief, and even dared to call them as facts, because I firmly believe in them based on experience with no parachute and with others.  It is good to have this discussion, it have never been talked about before. It is challenging for people to try something new, I know believe me.

So instead of using history, things that actually happened, doing actual research, using replays(things that actually exist), talking to people and getting their testimonials to process your thoughts and beliefs, you are happy to just believe something because you like it like that and don't want to even check 1st?

You can call me narrow minded and one sided all you want, it still doesn't make it true lol.
ZaR have existed for over 4 years now. People are familiar with it. It have been in the league. It have been played many times. And I am saying people can improve faster without parachute.

Quote
You are the one trying to pass off personal beliefs as universal facts, not me.
Look who's talking.

Quote
There you go again trying to state opinions as facts, all you need to do is add "for me" at the end of that sentence.

Because, if you didn't know, the world doesn't evolve around you Kradie.
Just because you lack the necessary skill like, focus, consistency and patience, doesn't mean beginners and other people are like that.

It doesn't matter whose fault it is, we're talking about having fun, giving each player the same amount of time to rope.

You call me egotistical yet you are making this all about you how you personally feel about it, it doesn't matter if you don't like it or not lol, all I was saying is that it's fun for some people, I didn't expect you to bite so hard at this wow...
It does matter who fault it is. If you fail, that's on you.

So what you are saying is, you are unable to detect mistakes while using parachute, and because you don't understand that other people can, you think it doesn't happen at all lol?

That's what it sounds like you are saying and i've already explained, this is not an opinion, this is a fact:

When you lose control of rope, hit the wall, or the roof, or fail to hit spacebar in time, or press the wrong arrow keys, with or without parachute, you are aware of your mistake. Why? Because if you use parachute, you will either lose control of the worm completely, or the parachute will open, it's very simple.

Using parachute doesn't make people blind to mistakes, not using parachute doesn't change the physics of roping, it doesn't make mistakes happen that can't happen with parachute.
Continuous rinse and repeat makes the mind numb and blind to mistakes because it all happens quickly. Without parachute, it is easier to review the mistakes because it have showed an error in your turn.

You dodged the question entirely, you still are.
Nope. Give it up Komodo.

You twist my words, then can't even understand what you done wrong lol.

This is hilarious ;D :D ;D
I am happy you find entertainment in your ignorance ^^

You can't even tell apart examples, theories, evidence, and facts/opinions.

You can't even realize when you are being a hypocrite.

You keep digging a bigger and bigger hole for yourself.
You throw around random numbers that doesn't prove anything. You are tall talk, no action.

Quote
Do you even know what consistency means?

I specifically didn't say what you are saying because being more consistent doesn't mean better.

You can be consistently slow, you can be consistently bad.

Using parachute or not makes no difference to how consistent a person can be, all I said was without using parachute you are more likely to become a consistent roper, rather than an impressive roper, because as you said, you will be more focused on trying not to fall, so you will rope safer/slower to make sure you don't chance losing your turn.

And what I was implying there was it is more likely to make you a slower, safer roper because the fear of falling and losing your turn doesn't make you push boundaries as much.
Yep, and you can be a impressive roper and have great consistency with INCREDIBLE SPEED. Because the mind have adapted. People are fearless without parachute, it is rewarding, and pride. They fight for it. Showing that they aren't dependent on a pillow to land on.

Are you really telling someone over the internet to go in a corner and cry?

Is this how desperate you've became? You can't even debate using any sort of useful information at all anymore?

You look like you are starting to take this very personally and starting to lose control man, keep calm, it's just a debate :)

I am pretty calm about this. Did you assume I was desperate? I have used many useful information, but you are throwing them out because it doesn't fit your deluded narrative.

I'm not belittling the views of other people, or their practices.

You are the one who created this topic calling other people weak, they need their hand held etc.

If you feel belittled because of the way i've defended against such ridiculous opinions that you've made, then you are acting insecure and in the moment lacking confidence.
Why would you advocate for these people? They haven't even complained. So you are assuming. I am not feeling insecure, and lacking confidence. In fact, quite the opposite!


Quote
Well, now that you've admitted it's an opinion, and not stating it as a universal fact that all humans must agree with, that's fine :)
Rest assured, your input here are purely opinion based. While mine are opinion, but facts too. You do gain more knowledge, you do rope better, you do see your mistakes more often, you do learn faster.

It is a pity you denounce the speedrunning comparison, and no parachute as its own category. It just shows how deluded you are. It's crazy.

I never met anyone in my life this incredible stubborn. It behooves you to stop impugning irrationally, and instead try ameliorate the situation.When someone disagree with you, you go out of your way to make it as facts. Komodo is right, REGARDLESS.

Btw, how was your date?
