Copy-paste of this string into an empty text file you opened with a text editor of your preference (notepad++, or Windows' notepad; however not a word processor like Word which likely would lead you to .docx, or .odt).

  • vnote

    Project mention: Looking for rule book creation suggestions | reddit.com/r/godot | 2023-03-06

    Project mention: Ask HN: What Are You Working on This Year? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-01-02

    I recently fell in love with node-based editors so I'm working on several plugins for my game engine https://github.com/nem0/LumixEngine, e.g. node-based procedural geometry plugin, node-based image editor, visual scripting or node-based level generator. I am also thinking about using WASM as runtime for the visual script, which also means easier support for scripting in other languages which can compile to WASM.

    GraphStudioNext is a tool for developers to build and test DirectShow Graphs

    Project mention: Show HN: FFmpeg Command Visualizer and Editor | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-10-29

    This is brilliant. A long time ago when I worked on Windows video apps, I used to use Graph Studio[1] to visualize the video graph comprised of countless DirectShow filters. It occurred to me multiple times that such a tool would be super useful for ffmpeg as well.

    It really helps visualize your filter graphs, especially when building complex video processing pipelines. Too bad this is not open source... I'd be more than happy to contribute.

    Cave Story OST is not made with PxTone, but with OrgMaker. But, there's a fork of PxTone called ptcollab that was recently updated to be MIDI kryboard compatible. And yes, the original PxTone Collage can read thr files made with ptcollab. Ptcollab is a much better experience overall.

  • efibooteditor

    Boot Editor for (U)EFI based systems

    Project mention: Grub bootloader vanished | reddit.com/r/Ubuntu | 2022-12-05

    If you don't find an option to do that (this is likely, finding stuff in modern BIOS is hard), use a Live USB and the command line utility efibootmgr or try the software https://github.com/Neverous/efibooteditor which I've never used (it has versions for Windows and Linux) and tell me later if it works.
