Suzanne_Ve.gba update, now with more visual trickery
The GBA normally only has 16 levels of alpha-blending, but taking advantage of the display ghosting on GBA LCD screens (simulated by the GBPlayer being recorded here as well), I gained an additional bit of precision. Now the gray eye / red face blending happens much more smoothly, almost imperceptibly, where in the original you'd probably notice if you looked as the level of opacity changed between 0 and 16.
This was accomplished with good old-fashioned mesh-transparency, with a checkerboard of pixels that horizontally flips every frame, and filters out the less-opaque layer using the GBA's "OBJ window" feature.
(The left and right edges have also been using a similar mesh transparency this whole time, which is why they're a little strange looking at times)
This sucks, and I hate to ask, but I can't pay some upcoming bills and I could use some help so that I can continue to drive my car, use my electricity, and so on.
If you have a spare buck or two, I'd really appreciate your help. Thank you.
Here's a $20 Itch bundle full of short games with worse graphics, each one costing about 71 cents: https://itch.io/b/988/the-shorter-games-with-worse-graphics-bundle-round-2
while i'm thinking about random media that occasionally sticks in my mind as "hey, that was good": a lot of people my age (and likely under) remember the Spongebob episode "Ripped Pants" but nobody ever talks about how neat it was that a popular cartoon did an entire episode that had a moral of "listen, if you're going to be a weird little joker, the least you can do is switch up your material so it doesn't get fucking annoying"
If Eugen is so ashamed of the monster he's created that he feels the majority of it should be hidden away like a dirty little secret in the official iOS app he could use that shame towards building better tools towards a healthier and safer social space like people have been literally begging for and suggesting since 2017
I create unique email addresses for every service I use.
I just got a spam email to one of those addresses.
What's the process here? Do I report it to the service in question in case they were hacked? Is there some sort of regulatory body who would like to know about this in case they were selling email addresses?

these sorts of informational disability videos don’t perform as well on YT, so comments, shares etc are especially appreciated 💜
