Should I start with Python if I am a complete beginner? Or should I just jump straight into JavaScript?
28 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Do this if you never want employment
Python jobs are widely available.
If you're solo you need a lot of skills.
Game/level design
UI design
Art design (creativity)
Character art or modelling
Music, both effects and thematic
Also, learning the tools for these skills such as game engine, art software, music software is a massive effort alone

Of course you don't need to do it all yourself. Practice and effort will take you a long way, but training multiple skills from nothing can be hard. Start today, and when you get bored focus on another.

I recommend Blender for 3D modelling/animation if you're thinking a 3D game
Start with a static language like Java or C/#/++. Then once you have specific tasks you're looking to complete choose the best language from there.

You do realize these shitbag companies are located out of some of the most expensive areas in the United States (SF, Seattle, Bellevue, NYC)? A $140k salary there is the same as like $70-80k in any mcol area. Unless you bagged a remote position it's really not much better than a random gig anywhere else in the U.S.
TC is like $200k for entry jobs in SF. Rent is $48k a year you're still netting 2-3x what you would make in another state

How does that not count as tons of extra boilerplate? That's one of the more boilerplatey solutions posted, you need multiple extra lines per key.
if you use any text editor you just duplicate the line and change the values you need for matching on bytes in the first example.
Java makes things quick and easy. Not sure how you see that as unfun.
so 3.14 + 5.8789887 is wrong also because one is float and one is double?

Just got this thing for free, what should I know?
If you have a PC good enough to play VR games then get, VR Kanojo with adult patch and She Is Sexaroid for porn.
Aside from that just google top VR games or soemthing, there are quite a few good ones at this time. Also get VRChat and just shit like youtube, netflix etc.
Stock headstrap is fucking garbage, get a cheap chink halo strap. The official elite strap had issues with it cracking apart but it has supposedly been fixed, but there's still a bunch of old stock still floating around.
Battery life is garbage, get a power bank and zip tie it to your headset somewhere
Lenses are plastic so they scratch piss easy, get a lens cover so you don't have to risk scratching the lenses to wipe dust off.
Stock audio is pretty bad, if you can't stand IEMs, mod on some koss porta pros.
Follow https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cyijb7CJZU if you're autistic about facebook
/vrg/ for game recommendations and where to be a degenerate in vr chat.
I still don't understand how people can stand any VR headstrap that just straps the headset to your face, even the "elite" headstrap feels like shit.
Any headset should just come with a halo strap these days.
And the cheap chink ones are basicly the best VR headstraps out there, you can freely adjust the front and back angle which the Rift S headstrap was really missing.

I want to create a custom layout for my language, but I struggle with key placement. There are just too many letters, and pressing AltGr all the time is a pain.
I have a solution in my head. If I could make ] a sort of modifier key, so I press it first, then press another key, and it results in typing a desired letter, that would be perfect. Sort of like in Japanese input method, I guess, when they type, for example, "k" and then "a" to make "ka" kana symbol, but this behavior would be limited to one key. Is this possible?
Also, what is the best way to create custom layouts both for Linux and Windows?
>Is this possible?
There's likely multiple ways to do it, one way I can think of is just use autohotkey to make whatever key you want work as AltGr, but as a sticky key, so pressing it once is the same as holding it down.

>what is the best way to create custom layouts both for Linux and Windows?
Linux, no idea. Windows, Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator.
MS has this

watch a tutorial on youtube
Use a programmable mechanical keyboard.
But it won't be a part of a layout then

>Use a programmable mechanical keyboard.

My goal is to make a layout anyone can just install and use, not rely on extra hardware or software.
>But it won't be a part of a layout then
Ok, there should be a way to do it so it's part of the layout, the term you want to search for is "dead keys"

shill me a distro /g/ im sick of distro hopping...
63 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
works for me, if i pay for something i generally want to use it, books ive bought vs books i downloaded a pdf of, read a lot more of books i bought.
I stopped distro hopping in 2016 when I started using gentoo. The whole system is flexible enough that you can completely change it whenever you feel like it. I didn't use systemd for a while, then felt like using it and picked it up for a couple of years,and finally got rid of it again recently.
Void Linux
If it doesn't work: Artix Linux
I haven't distro hopped enough to provide a definitive answer. All I would say is you should try using a distro for a wide range of tasks before dismissing it. I dismissed Linux in general throughout my teens, only moving to it when Microsoft produced the cancer called Windows 8. It only took me a few weeks to figure out how to do most things in Ubuntu, which then allowed me to adopt other Debian based systems quite easily.
Tell me about why xbps is better than pacman.
Void v Artix is simply just which package manager is better.

Just got done bullying my local isp to give me 500/100 internet or else i would not re-sign my contract with them.

Also post your internet speeds i guess

Nvidia's chiplet design has been in the works for a couple years now, so, whatever. AMD isn't magic.
wow, where can I get a device that puts Nvidia this far up my ass like this anon has demonstrated?
it's a very nice gpu if you can actually get one.
eth is bonkers right now, so that's unlikely.

Why do people think its hard?

I've never really used regex for anything performance-intensive so I have no idea. I mostly use it for quick and dirty scripts. As I've said, ".*[^.html]" doesn't do what you think it does. [] are used to match ONE CHARACTER based on what you put inside of them. "[^.html]" seems mostly nonsensical because you have an unescaped "." in there and it's negated, so what that structure says is "match one character that is not any character" and I'm pretty sure that's nonsensical and will never match anything.

".*" is greedy and it will match as much as it can, so what the regex "(?<=-).*[^.html]" actually means is "match everything after -". Is that what you want to achieve? Just having "(?<=-).*" would be the same thing, I'm pretty sure, but since you added the whole negated html part at the end I guess you don't actually want that, though it doesn't work like that. Lookahead and lookbehind are used to match things after/before the match you actually want to see in your result, but they won't be included in it. So if you want to match something between - and .html you could use lookahead and lookbehind like I said.

No idea, I just know things I've picked up from random reading over the years, whenever I needed to do something with regex that I didn't know about.
>legacy spaghetti shit
that's the best kind of shit
um, sweaty... I think you meant to say that the regex lexes it and the code parses it? You can't parse with regex... lexers are built with regex though
yeah congrats you know basic c... yawn

I am curius if any of you know a possible way to program in Holy C outside of the Temple OS
I'm on mobile (and throttled data), but I'm pretty sure he hosts the compiler over on templesos.org
still waiting for HolyC support in gcc
Probably, but more importantly what does it DO that’s different from C? Of course it’s for the meme, but you’d still want to use it to its fullest potential.
So is there a way to download that compiler and run it locally on any given OS without having to launch temple os?
It has a 3d and 2d engine built in to the compiler
That's why I would want to use it.
Also its just pretty neat

Pentium 4 is bloat
Cope harder corelet
16gb of ram and an SSD really are memes though

So I read that the move operation in C++ is a casting to an rvalue ref, but a more visual representation is that we are just moving the ownership of the values stored to another entity, yet i expected that the memory address will remain the same but its not when i am compiling the code locally, what am i missing ?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
auto v : (some rvalue) is still a copy

Try auto&& v
Internalpointers or something like that have good info about move semantics etc. check it out
You are printing the address of the iteration variable, anon, not the address of the vector element. If you want that, use
for (auto& v : vec1)
ty this was my pb
Just be careful while doing range iteration over r-values.
