I finally managed to get a GPD XD!       ( ;v; )



The GPD XD is an android based handheld, specifically designed to look as the always-elegant 3DS, and aimed towards emulators, and android games! (YEAH, the lamest way to describe it would be "a phoneless phone (or small tablet) with a gamepad attached to its butt" but that's pretty much what it is and it's exactly what I've always wanted hhaha)
Look at this video review if you're curious about it!

It has a quad-core Cortex-A17 CPU and it is strong enough to handle SEGA Dreamcast emulation (via reicast), and everything below that including Nintendo DS, MAME, DosBox, etcetera!

It costs 180$ (us dollars) and so far I super love it and it's the best thing I've ever bought for myself so far <3

Here you have it running OuO on it lol

I ordered this thing online (mercadolibre, which is like ebay but for latin america, Argentina in my case) as soon as I found out someone from my country was reselling them brand new (it's very difficult to import this kind of stuff and it's usually super expensive and sometimes you cannot get them at all, it's a long story) and two weeks later (5 days ago roughly) it arrived at my front door and I have been toying around with it since then!

Anyway, here's a review of all customization I've done to it so far:
notreblogs.tumblr.com/post/173…

TL;DR I installed a custom bloatware-free rom, set up a custom launcher (TVlauncher), made some customized icons for it, installed my favorite emulators, games, apps, and here we are! 



once again the obligatory "sorry for the lack of arts" hhaha... I've had a bunch of pretty emotionally draining weeks lately (sister visiting, work fixing computers, sport events to watch, hell my CAT GOT LOST YESTERDAY and we spent all day looking for him around town and only found him at 22:00 when the town had calmed down and were able to hear his yelling from a mile away and managed to bring him back home ANYWAY IT WAS TOUGH).

but yeah
maybe I'll try to draw something one day, for now I'm happy with this shit, I haven't even "sat down and played" anything there yet but I'm still hyped and customizing it is a big part of the fun hhaha <3

anyway if you by any chance were on the fence wondering if you should buy this or not... yeah it's totally worth it if you can afford it and I very much recommend it~

I made it over the last two days, from scratch, because I realized my old stopwatch I made 4 years ago was fine sort of but it was ugly as hell and I thought hey it's been four years and I could use something a bit more polished and also I love making apps quickly so eh why not hhaha.

Anyway, basically this stopwatch is designed for artists that want to see how much time they're actually working, and for speed drawing, and timing in general I guess.

If set to do so, the timer will pause automatically whenever SAI is not in focus (Or whatever program(s) you set it to monitor), or whenever the mouse cursor stops moving (after a few seconds).
Resumes automatically after you're back to work. [From v4.1 onwards you can select multiple programs for this!]

 
It also displays the total time, and the non-idle time; makes sounds whenever a minute/hour/whatever you set it to passes, and has a circle that visually represents how much time it passed. Stays always on top, the colors can be configured, and other buncha crap I forget.


I designed it so that it blends in with SAI, and so it can comfortably sit somewhere without looking like a modal window out of place haha.


So yeah, it's kind of a minimalistic mess but it works I think! If any of you been here long enough to faintly remember my old stopwatch app (from back then when I would livestream), 1. I love you, 2. this one's gonna replace it. :D

Yesterday I updated the code on my art pokedex site to also account for Alolan pokes:

For those of you seeing this for the first time, basically you click on the picture of a pokemon and it searches in my gallery for it. The darkened ones are those I haven’t drawn yet. which is less than half of them woo

Check it out! notfarts.tumblr.com/pokedex




( I've also updated the journal with the latest alolan pokes I've drawn )

I also updated the random selector ( notfarts.tumblr.com/pokedex/ra… ) because bringing back old jokes.

Anyway-- yeah I guess I'm back.... sort of? Gonna try to keep it up and draw a random poke every 2 days or so. Wish me luck and hope I don't jinx it by being too optimistic! Gotta be strong and persevere haha.

Also no I don't do requests but If you want to influence me indirectly or not you can shout out a pokemon in the comments here and I may or may not consider it I mean, it's freedom of speech and I am human I enjoy being an unpredictable mess but I like things sometimes haha

iphone, android, windows, older, don't have or can't afford?
Also if you have an ipad or an android tablet, select iphone or android respectively.
I need to know mostly because I'm curious but also because you know i'm an android developer and might jump to ios if there's a significant amount of iphone users around.

I probably won't but- doesn't hurt much to ask

I can't take it, I'm not strong enough to fight the system. I'd rather start over with the new blog.


Anyway, I've renamed the blog to notfarts just in case; and set up elpatrixf2 as a redirect for now.
So yeah, notfarts.tumblr.com it's officially my new blog now. Drop me a follow, I'll start posting stuff there as it happens.

If I get nuked again then I'm done posting stuff on tumblr.
But shit it was bound to happen eventually lol now to message back arguing that it was a fake DMCA and then hope that it get restored or else I start from scratch again; prone to gain no followers at all because all I do now is shitpost and not art.

Yeah, I'm mildly pissed at it because I lost, like 6000 followers, 2000 of them probably being porn bots but still. The biggest loss is all my shit posts and stuff I had archived for later use and read.
No biiig deal, it's either back to square one in tumblr or I start using twitter to shitpost, but nobody follows me there and I barely follow even half of the people I followed in tumblr because most of them don't even use it because they're tumblr only artists and stuff.

*sigh*

Oh well.
My account was nuked somewhere between the moment I posted that I was going to install the creation kit, and the moment I was going to post about how I accidentally deleted skyrim entirely by trying to re-install the creation kit and now I have to download everything again.

Frankly for some reason I'm more pissed at the fact that I have to wait 5 hours to play skyrim again.
I guess I still haven't realized whether I really lost something of real value from tumblr; like contact with friends and what not.



go d dammit

The game is a Playstation title, called Fisherman's Bait 3, also known as Big Ol' Bass 2 outside of Europe.

39 tracks, had to manually fix the SKIPPING in ALL the tracks caused by jittery audio emulation.

Been working on this and rambling about it in tumblr since I woke up but now I've finished doing everything, from recording, thru manually editing all the audio, to uploading it to youtube and adding all the ID3 tags to the high quality MP3 files and uploading them to mega for anyone to download.

I'm posting it here too because FUCK I spent all day on this, might as well make everyone listen to it. Some sweet tunes for a weird Konami fishing game.

Big chunk of my late childhood right here. At first I only wanted to rip the Free Fishing track, but I ended up doing the whole job instead.

[Click here for the full youtube playlist]





If you ever played this game, you rock.

also if you never heard of it but still you're listening to the soundtrack, you ROCK MORE.

Just reminding you that I'm still working on these pokemon donations/commissions/paid requests/whatever you want to call em. :la:
elpatrixf.deviantart.com/journ…

I've just added a new "SALE" tier, that I'll probably start populating tomorrow after I do an extensive search over the whole pokedex. Basically the ones featured there get a discount.
but also to combat this, I've raised the price of the standard pokes from 8$ to 9$ (it's just one extra buck, to compensate for the new sales tier, I don't think it'd hurt much now would it)

Anyway, gosh, thanks a lot everyone who donated up to now <3
I've long reached the initial 100$ goal but I'm gonna try stretching it up as much as I can ^^

Ah, and since the queue is empty right now, if you do a request it will logically be the next one I'll work on!:pokeball:
Welp, that was short lol, you can still donate but the queue is no longer empty XD
