@spidlerc I threw in some cash and will ping some people. Tweeted 23 May 22 in reply to Rob's Exacerbated Cornea via Twitter for iPhone

@koorogi I've got a pretty firm 24 projects picked, just trying to narrow down what to choose for the last five slots at this point, out of 172 possible options. Tweeted 22 May 22 in reply to Koorogi #BLM via Twitter Web App

Starting to think about PhysicsFS 4.0. Come add to the wishlist! github.com/icculus/physfs… Tweeted 22 May 22 via Twitter Web App

@koorogi I'm still working on it; I've been busy, and it's a genuinely overwhelming amount of projects and money. I'll finish soon. If I do this again, I'm going to get a couple people to evaluate the projects, so it won't take this long. Tweeted 22 May 22 in reply to Koorogi #BLM via Twitter Web App

@BriannaWu @chipgoines But coming from someone who just soldered a USB port onto one of those throwaway single-title audiobook players from the library: tinkering is fun, you should tinker until you run out of stuff to tinker with. Tweeted 22 May 22 in reply to icculus via Twitter for iPhone

@nikc_12 I don’t know, it’s even more passive aggressive if it doesn’t! 🤣 Tweeted 21 May 22 in reply to nick12 via Twitter for iPhone

"I asked for more information and you didn't reply, so I slapped this big red label on your bug report" is just the most passive aggressive thing I ever get to do. pic.twitter.com/BVzlivynLU

@TheSpydog @AmerKoleci To be fair, it's fine to have an extra precook-the-shaders build step when shipping for a console, since there won't be new APIs showing up years later, whereas the Windows binary of today might want to seamlessly use D3D13 tomorrow. Heck, D3D12 has TWO bytecode formats already! Tweeted 18 May 22 in reply to Caleb Cornett via Twitter Web App

@AmerKoleci @TheSpydog Well, we're definitely going to be generating it at runtime whether we like it or not, since we're going to need to generate DXIL from whatever bytecode format we choose, to target D3D12. :( Tweeted 18 May 22 in reply to Amer Koleci via Twitter Web App

@Raptor851 I haven't ruled out just _using_ SPIR-V for the bytecode format, but at initial glance, it's not a great fit for our needs. Tweeted 18 May 22 in reply to Raptor85 via Twitter Web App

@TheSpydog Do they need to be prebaked for technical reasons, or do they need to be prebaked because the baked format is undocumented? Tweeted 18 May 22 in reply to Caleb Cornett via Twitter Web App

@antumbral It kinda makes it look like the monitor I used to write QuickBASIC code on, if we're being honest here. Tweeted 18 May 22 in reply to Katelyn Gadd via Twitter Web App

@matiasgoldberg (Half of this project is just absorbing the interesting things you keep pointing me in the direction of, btw, which I _really_ appreciate!) Tweeted 18 May 22 in reply to Matías N. Goldberg via Twitter Web App

@FlohOfWoe I was thinking of adding something like GL_ARB_get_program_binary...you give us SDL bytecode, but can ask for the native representation (which might be SPIR-V/DXIL/whatever, or it might be the thing below it), so you can cache and try to use it next time.

@edhebi It's not my goal to "win marketshare" or whatever with this project, but fwiw, I don't think wgsl will, either. Tweeted 18 May 22 in reply to 🇺🇦 Léo ⚲ via Twitter Web App
