stealth game where higher difficulty NPCs are more absent-minded and will randomly turn around immediately after entering a room, realising they didn't mean to go in there

i wonder what the hell that almost tom-tom-like instrument is in the background? it sounds bitcrushed, ring-modulated and resonant-filtered, so it could be just about anything really

the parts themselves are simple but difficult combined

the drums on teeth/teflon are really difficult to tap along to, like the hat/crash part is independent of the kick/bass

y'know i learned a lot of theory about optimization, but my knowledge of when to use which algorithms/techniques/etc is incredibly lacking

(i'm also going from mean squared error to peak absolute error between these)

Show thread

chaining nelder-mead into cma-es seems to work really well for squeezing every last bit of error out of this problem

i'm sure there's some perl one-liner or something that's more lenient

Show thread

damnit zmv, i don't care if multiple files map to the same name, just do something
