They just don’t #design sites like they used to
I’ve been messing with some simple Steam Deck controller configs for old SCUMM games, and it’s more satisfying than it has any business being. In this case adding a radial menu to the right stick which will press the right hotkey to convert the cursor into a Use/Talk/Look at action instead.
The work folks did on the Steam controller config tool on Deck has made me really happy; the old one I found unwieldy and intimidating but now I think it’s fun? Help.
For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:
-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)
-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.
...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁

If @bigzaphod is still posting regularly a week or month from now, then you know this latest twitter exodus was for real
Only 12 of my 64 games got the green check mark. I’ve already played 6 of those Deck verified games 😔

Remember Bluesky? Twitter's initiative to create a decentralized social media network?
Sounds like Elon *didn't* buy that https://twitter.com/bluesky/status/1518707597532024832
This is going to look even sillier when Musk triggers a mass Twitter exodus
just check the five pinned toots on my profile to get a gist of the kind of stuff I post.
that's right, you can pin multiple posts on here unlike twitter!
Hello, I'm Ronflaix, I'm a gameing engineing programmer.
I also do a few things on other platforms like Pico-8, the PlayDate (eventually) when I'm not trying to make my own engine.
And sometimes I scribble and doodle amateur pixel art, but it's not my forte.
