just reading the AMA

Mac Client - Currently we can patch, run around in several maps, we don’t fall through the floor anymore. It is progressing and we will let you guys know when we’re ready to go into beta.

this actually made me laugh :D

but honestly, compared to the last update we got, it's very promising (just when a guild mate of mine decided to install bootcamp...)

It's slow going, the codebase wasn't designed for cross-platform
for a long time it wouldn't even get past the login screen too!

but there is a mac client right? or am I mistaken

oh yes the shooting gallery activity and the tavern brawl activity where you fight each other with chairs, right?
just read a mickey mouse from 1951 on the toilet. perfect place for the time between realization what those are worth and seeing it's a 2001 reprint on the back

someone explain why we don't have build templates ingame given that we can pull all the ids from the game for the skills that could possibly be chosen
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 27 2016 17:37
i think this has been asked more than once... :P
ChieftainAlex
@ChieftainAlex
Jul 27 2016 17:38
but how many times has it been answered in a way that was satisfactory..
load an array of skill and trait ids ... how hard could it be
and if invalid throw table

but how many times has it been answered in a way that was satisfactory

it doesn't work like Trump's election campaign

hmm, i just remembered something (completely unrelated), but why can i upgrade to digital deluxe through the gem store when i already have done that before HoT came out?
smiley
@codemasher

can you put it in the cart and check out? no mark that your account is already deluxe?

seems quite old :P
seeing those traits
but seeing this really makes me wanna make a build editor... but that's gonna take so much time D:

@codemasher
Jul 27 2016 18:23
well, it's predecessor is the de-facto ultimate teambuild tool for GW1. however, Janni stopped development for GW2 since there is no use for it anyway
Christian
@zeeZ
Jul 27 2016 19:28
without reading the reference I'm gonna guess there's no build templates because it's more than just storing and retrieving an array of skill IDs
probably ran out of whiteboard space for the "what if" :P
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 27 2016 19:33
noone likes bit flipping it seems :D
Christian
@zeeZ

more like ui and stitching the actual build together from whatever hellish place runs that shiny direct x surface

it would have been funny if twitter embedded gitter rooms
iframeception
not sure how fun chrome would find that
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 27 2016 22:15
test it
a.html embeds b.html, and b.html embeds a.html
Christian
@zeeZ
Jul 27 2016 22:16
why not just have a.html embed a.html?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 27 2016 22:16

Jul 27 2016 22:16
THAT is apparantly standardized by W3C
if a document embeds itself or a parent, it treats the source as empty
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 27 2016 22:17
pff, does it also take url parameters into account?
otherwise just embed a.php?1, a.php?2, etc
windwarrior
@windwarrior
Jul 27 2016 22:17
it should, those are not part of the URI right
or... the location of the document
Christian
@zeeZ
Jul 27 2016 22:18
you could just rewrite that too
except for the tld anything can be adjusted
Archomeda

is it defined how many iframes can be inside iframes?

quite, and the dutch law also sometimes is like, yeah you should have known that
Archomeda

smiley
@codemasher
Jul 27 2016 23:17
for sure
but no request limit
it's actually super weird -- that's the number of concurrent requests IIRC
"fetch all the items at the same time with individual requests" is what it looks like
smiley
@codemasher
Jul 27 2016 23:18
thats the number of requests needed to fetch /v2/items
with page size 200
lol true
but it wasn't /v2/items -- not sure which endpoint it was (it's one of the ones I don't graph)
smiley

yeah
what happens on server crash, you get booted from your instance?
Archomeda
@Archomeda
Jul 27 2016 23:42
i think it's either infinite loading (if you where in a loading screen), or you get kicked to character select with the message that it has lost connection to the server
