What monitors do I get for gayman? Up to $650 budget, I already have an amplifier that can handle 2 pairs of speakers
i have these speakers
i want something better now


Got the rp-600 5y ago for 350€
>i have these speakers
>i want something better now
Me too. They sound great for the price, but I don't like where the crossover sits.

>>87016115 (OP)
Sell the amp and use the money for a better set of self-powered speakers. Edifier are a good value even though I'm indifferent to the specific model I have.

>Windows executables are... le BAD!!! Because they just are!
When you download software for Windows and it doesn't work, with 98% chance it is at fault of the developer and there is something wrong with the software.

When you download software for Linux and it doesn't work, there are gorillion reasons why, ranging from your system being fucked up to a developer having absolutely no clue how to package his dependencies.

The only way to have your software working on Linux is either pulling from the walled garden repositories that jannies tested for free, or spending your own hours to debug in case something goes wrong.

>shitty software. Not the Windows issue
It is a Windows issue. I've used Windows and DOS since the late 80s. It's a bunch of crap piled on top of more crap and you're going to end up in the exact situation I described. Better make sure you install everything in the right order anon. Have fun making all your shit talk to each other and using the outdated file system. It's shit. I was happy I could finally leave it and restrict my Windows application needs to VMs and air-gapped computers running older version of the Windows OS. I'm parcel to 2k.

Are you really so poor that you're in a situation where you're still running Windows on bare metal? It's time to move on. GNU/Linux is crap piled on top of crap to. But it's better designed crap and it's easier install, configure, and keep going than a Window's install. There is no need to re-install the OS every 6 months-2 years because it slowly grew bloated.

What do you want to hear? Git Gud? Linux doesn't have to replicate .exe. It supports .exe. Both in full blown VM and translation layer (WINE). If you don't want to use Linux desktop you don't have to. Boot the kernel and then go straight into Windows VM and passthru your hardware. You now have stable Windows install that you can destroy and spin-up are your leisure. You can even have more than one running at the same time. 100% compatibility with every application. No loss of performance compared to bare metal. You'd be a fool not to take advantage.

What Microsoft says and what's reality are two different things. You are going to need odd-ball versions of shit. Because most of the applications have a hard dependency on whatever version they used at the time. 75% of the software I want to use in Windows is old and legacy. Windows 10 is shit. It's pajeet webshitter trash on top of Vista trash on top of XP bloat on top of a pretty decent kernel+GUI. Windows 2k was the last sane version. Since XP quality took a steep nosedive.
>Since XP quality took a steep nosedive.
Oh and the reason this happened is that was the era when Microsoft laid off all their top engineers and programming teams. About 6 months before XP came out Microsoft started bleeding employees. Tons of lay offs and everyone else was doing whatever they could to jump ship. They were the people that built NT kernel and were working on projects like WinFS. Microsoft had a lot of stuff going on back then. They killed off all their software divisions to fund Xbox project. XP was when they started to switch from purely software company to hardware+vendor lock-in. Microsoft employees were pissed around that time. If you troll through old USENET archives and web forums you can find a lot of post from disgruntled employees in that time period.
>gotta updoooot
literally none of those directories have config files in them except /etc and .config or $HOME unless the developer is a braindead nigger

Why does the distinction of it being "non native" or "native" matter if it has the exact same performance as a native app and you can give it FILESYSTEM=home and it acts just like a "native" app faggot. Good job ignoring the rest of the post btw, nigger.

>demands elaboration and reply
Driver extensions and other issues with flatpak are directly linked to flatpak pulling an entire runtime to replicate developer machine state.

no sense to talk with someone who does not have the required background to argue in a good faith. There's a good article posted above with elaboration and sources™ but as you refuse to accept knowledge I can only keep dubbing on you. Sorry.

What do I do to be good at estimating deadlines? Any tips?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Track everything, set limits and boundaries to everything and talk to everybody, get the best posible outcome and negotiate it.
Just make a guess how long you think it'll take and then double it.
That's the basics for everything.

Only do things that:
>your boss or customer specifically asked for
>you promised (PRO TIP: STFU)
>prevents stupid work and/or embarassment down the line

If you have an awesomely cool idea, see if you can implement it in an afternoon. If you get stuck, immediately put it in the "next version" bin. Don't talk to boss or customer about it.
Make a best case, typical case, and worst case estimate. Add together best case + (2 * typical case) + worst case and divide by 3.

Also, if you're mostly completing things in time but getting hung up by continually expanding scope, learn to say "no" to implementing the expanded scope in *this* ticket.

what's the difference between rendering in big engines like unreal / unity and some basic tutorial like https://learnopengl.com/PBR/Theory?
it seems pretty comprehensive

why would you ever use a game engine vs custom make / sln project?
engines come with so much bloat, terrible performance and sub-par tard orientated ui & scripting paradigms.

i just don't see a future for off the shelf engines.
they're just so terrible no matter how you slice it.
You have no clue what functionality a general purpose AAA capable game engine involves.
The question is wrong.
What game are you making? What features do you need from a game engine?
Answer the questions and pick whatever is best suited.
Both UE5 and Unity are terribly bloated but they offer unparalleled features for a small team to develop large scope projects.
Stride is ok for a small project as an alternative to Unity.
Falcon is good as an alternative to UE5 for a micro project.
The other big engines are shit and the other small engines don't offer basic features like mesh and texture imports.
I haven't tried the new Godot.
game engine is far more than just rendering
if you are asking this question you never tried to make a game before
