Posted on 06-25-18 06:24:37 PM, in Nearest neighbor upscaling? Link
yeah it's because a lot of things here are pixel art, which looks like garbage when resized. unfortuantely i guess it looks even more garbage when you're using dpi scaling, which is unfortunate

not really sure what i can do since there's no good way of saying "this image is pixel art and should be nn scaled" versus "this is a photo or whatever and should be turned into blurry soup".


tcrf has the same problem, because we require images to be uploaded at 1× and then upscaled via html for filesize + consistency. so if you're using something that isn't an even multiple of 100% it looks like dogshit.

clicky here to look at every old and embarrassing version

Good grief, I remember seeing the original back when it was new.

Though even comparing against this one, I don't think any of the old ones are bad; they're all quite good, but the attention to detail is a lot more obvious in this one

I don't have a tape deck any more, but if I did those would be nice for it

The art on them is unobtrusive and fits quite well onto them.

I should really buy another dash cam. The last one I had kinda took a crap on me last September and I haven't bothered to get a new one.


I did get a Pixel 2 XL, though, for better or worse; my old Nexus 6P is kicking the bucket and only lasts for about 15 minutes of use on a full charge I would have just gone with the normal Pixel 2 but between the Fi credit and trade-in of my current phone it worked out to be a little cheaper.

I haven't finished setting it up yet.


I also got a data-only SIM for my old iPhone 5S, which is somehow still in good shape ... with the SIM card I can use it for some out-of-the-house bullshit, since it has a really nice calculator for when we go grocery shopping.

I think that order is probably what I would rank them in too (newest, oldest, newer, older).

I also think that you're your own worst critic, though. The first one really is good and cute

glad this place has been so helpful to all of you, really. it's nice to have contributed something positive in this otherwise rotten world

also the fabric case makes it look real nice. was afraid of the bezel looking huge, but it turns out it's taolly fine in person.

hoping i can make it last 2+ years and not stupidly break it like my pixel 1...

ah yeah, the fabric case looks pretty neat. guess i'll get one of those too, since i like having a case on phones; they feel way too light otherwise.

The real test is avoiding all the idiots. Case in point, on the way back from dinner tonight:

- One idiot who turned left from the off-ramp into the wrong side of the road and had to reverse, with me and another driver next to us clapping at the display
- Another idiot at the very next intersection backing out of the straight lane to enter the left turn lane
- A third idiot ignoring one of the rare "NO U TURNS" signs to do a u-turn

All of this within 3 intersections. It's absurd.



media chat

Foobar2k user here. I miss Winamp Classic; the rolled-up view was nice. But Foobar2k lets me set Ctrl+>> to Next and Ctrl+Shift+>> to Next-Random... and it's a little easier to add my entire music collection in it, a 180,000-track playlist helpfully titled "just fuck me up fam".

I have very little "traditional" albums in mp3/ogg format; most of them are game soundtracks in native formats like nsf, gbs, etc...

I wish Acmlm would release a version of his mid2wav plugin for fb2k, though, so I could also import the huge mess of songs from vgmusic.

Oh, I agree that I can be a tough critic. But I also think people sometimes think that's a self-esteem thing and not a self-evaluation thing.

Some of it's a self-esteem thing. It's hard not to compare yourself to other artists, too.

But I also don't get a lot of critique from other people… and when I do, it… sometimes it's just mean. I was once told on this forum (a very long time ago)

this one as in jul or one of the old acmlm versions? because if it was here, oof. whoever said that was a real butthead


Anyway, I digress. I've found that to improve, I need to look critically at my own work. If I didn't notice things like arms being too long or spines being weirdly shaped, I wouldn't study how to improve them. I finally figured out that the "ugly" stuff was facial proportion issues, often things like overlarge foreheads. I still accidentally make ugly art and there's all kinds of things I don't notice I'm doing wrong. Sometimes I can't tell what's "off" about something (like the Rainbow Brite thing), but without being critical of my own work I'd never get any better.

i'll entirely admit that it's probably me projecting what i see in a lot of people (extremely unhelpful self-negativity) here. a lot of people forget that while self-criticism is good, one also has to appreciate the good parts — even if it's just doing something. (though in your case, after 15+ years, there's a lot of good to appreciate, heh.)
