Anyway, the new Twitch launcher tends to be really glitchy about displaying the modpacks I have installed. I haven't found a consistent fix yet. For some reason, I've been in there a lot trying to get it to work.
I did a little bit of progress following the Amethyst tutorial. Mostly, I got it set up with Pijul so I've got a safety net against accidentally trashing it. I'm really interested in exploring the stuff about pushdown automata, because that's the kind of thing I was trying to do, badly, when I was following that Python roguelike tutorial. (As I recall, the tutorial described an approximation to a PDA, and I might have tried to generalize it.)
Aside from that, we watched Halloween 6 (or "Vi"), and, um, wow. That was some editing. It's a good thing neither of us has photosensitive epilepsy. I feel like there was a bunch of padding going on there:
- People get freaked out for no reason, and do things ｓｌｏｗｌｙ as a result
- Overuse of musical stings, to the point where they made me think that nothing surprising had happened even though it had.
- Lingering shots of bladed tools.
- Talking to people in one place about how they'd like to continue the conversation somewhere else.
Like, points for trying to build on the thorn stuff from 5, but, oof.
And, it's late again. I'll try to work harder on following the tutorial tomorrow. Good night.
