The ad is extremely classic, so more likely to attract attention from oldskool posters. Seems like a positive.

presumably the FBI or whatever relevant government spook group would know your location through so many other electronic signatures that actually announcing your country/state would be superfluous?

If this virus BS provokes martial law in the USA, I will be setting off a lot of homemade fireworks on a 10 minute timer along with a pair of speakers blasting Green Day's "Governator", and watching from afar as the wasps in green storm the area looking to deal some injustice. Anyone else making plans for the slim chance that this happens?

With the turn of the decade comes a turn of ownership: As of today, Black Hand is officially the owner/operator of plus4chan. I have the utmost confidence in them, Black Hand has done more for this site in the two years they've been involved than I did in the prior three from when I took over+time prior to that when I was just a mod.

And I did let the site languish (including an attempted murder), so I don't deserve any outgoing speech. Instead, I want to offer thanks:
- Thanks to the mods who have continued to check in from time to time and help keep things in order
- Thanks to Anonex for creating p4c, and for putting up with my shit when I took ownership
- Thanks to Black Hand for the blood and sweat poured into the site, and saving this place from death

Late to the (funeral)party, but here's my 2 cents anyway.

Thanks for /coc/. Without that, we'd probably never have gotten as far with the Melusine translation project as we did before the translator unfortunately vanished.

Hi all. I was wondering if it's possible to delete a thread from the archive? It has a bunch of old art I'm kinda ashamed to have up somewhere and would much rather it was just all gone haha
No.419684

The archives have no database whatsoever, so deleting anything from it would end up throwing a bunch of errors unless all the html files are manually edited out.

And on general principle I wouldn't want to revise the past.

Technically it COULD be edited out, but the archives are also checked by the wayback machine and google, and updating them will just flag them as a newer page, and then they would get ranked higher / get archived again, which is kinda not what you want. Getting re-crawled means people can compare the old and new content and see that your thread got removed.
Oh and you'd need to tell us what you want edited out in the first place, and then people would know that they should check your old art.

tbh we get so low traffic that you really don't have to worry about it. The archives mostly get linked to in offsite comments made 10 years ago. I don't think anyone will find them unless they specifically search for "{artist name} plus4chan archive".

It is arguable because PS1 does hardware dithering to fake a higher colour count and has such a low resolution that CRT screens make it look better. The screen is way sharper because the CRT can match the resolution of the game, while a flat panel would do some basic bilinear stretching with variable amount of ringing noise to make it run on its native resolution.
PS2 doesn't run in high resolution or in widescreen (except for very few select titles), and many games actually use 480i, so it would look better on a decent CRT too. Except for the games that actually do progressive output, which is not that common.

PS3 and above, games with digital output, will of course look the best on digital panels.

You were wise to use the key word, "arguable". Because if you have a good deinterlacer (either built-in or something like a Framemeister), you can make 480i and 576i look good on a flat panel. And, arguably 240/288p of PS1 games does not look better on a CRT, since it introduces black scanlines.
No.419400

The problem isn't the deinterlacing but that the low-res polygon graphics look really really blurry when stretched out to a HD panel. A good scaler helps, but those have their own downsides: Framemeister is extremely expensive and EOL, and has huge problems when a game switches resolutions mid-game, while the OSSC is good for 240p and switches resolutions fast but it is absolutely trash for interlaced games (it makes them look WORSE).

the Crt scanlines and shadow mask / aperture grille layouts do end up making the graphics much sharper, since each pixel is more defined, as opposed to a blurry soup on a hd panel.
