I'm coding the firmware for my Raspberry Pi handheld console thing's controls. USB HID descriptors are fucking painful, and the only tool I could find to generate them is broken as fuck. Stupid communication protocols!

I'm relearning mapping with Trenchbroom in anticipation for its preliminary (no curves) Q3 support coming soon. This is important because I've been meaning to ditch that old Quark burden of a pipeline that I can barely use in the past 22 years so I might finally put out some OK maps (if not decent) after all these years. The Radiant gatekeeping must be broken

Not going to shoot for that crazy newquakemapsmadeinTB-level of brushwork though!!! I'm still thinking about these dusty metal things and that crappy plastic thing similar to the one mentioned just above me! Fun with the clipping tool and convex merges has me optimistic about better low-spec mapping than before for a low enough r_speeds and much frugal memory usage...

Looks cool. However, with the laser bolt being red/orange, would the pulsing effect on the weapon be better in a colour more sympathetic to that of the bolt?

Yes, it can be changed, I've tested with several color variations.

All I can see are Blood's napalm launcher in that first person shot...

MMMMMMMM THAT'S JUST GLORIOUS! I really do hope i can see more of Quake 1 Weapon sprites, refined, remade! Nah, not the Deathmatch one. I mean the new stuff, new tribute for the Original Game itself.

Very nice work, and i'll look forward to it!

Spent hours backing up my files.

The last couple of times I tried to switch on my computer, it failed (i.e. couldn't boot) because it couldn't find the SSD. I went into the bios settins and the SSD was missing in the boot list. After a few retries, it appeared.

It's working right now but I think something may be getting ready to fail on a more permanent basis. At the moment, nothing seems to be flagging up. I've tried a few health checks (including chkdsk) and there are no problems detected. I don't even know if the problem is with the SSD itself, or the computer's ability to see it (e.g. motherboard problem of some sort).

Maybe you should try new cables.

In case that sounds silly: I lost 3 hard drives the same way, before I traced the problem to the shitty cheap SATA3 cable I was using. Once I got rid of that, I haven't had another problem. (Unfortunately it caused permanent damage to the drives, and so far I haven't been able to recover anything from them.)

Not a bad shout actually. I can give that a go, thanks. I'll have to get some replacement cables first, but it's a nice cheap thing to try.
