  1. House buying is the worst

    As long as whatever you're raising it with is screwed in, I'm sure it will be fine. Alternatively, return the bed? Or buy a bigger mattress
  2. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    That is some bullshit. I have a Gyarados but I've only got 52 candies beyond that. I should've been collecting every Magikarp that I've tapped on to see if it was shiny. Dammit. Just looked it up and finding a Ditto might be bs as well! I only just found my second one ever a week ago.
  3. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    I assume already having Gyarados is not enough?
  4. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (2017)

    I want to play this, but it just isn't dipping below full price anywhere :/
  5. Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

    I hope after April 1, they give us an option to turn that mode back on, it's fun The new mystery/research/Mew related stuff adds a fun extra dimension to the game already.
  6. Questions

    Don’t kill the mystery Glad it’s working now.
  7. Questions

    Hm that's weird. The bottom link you quoted is just a normal text link, no surprise that works. The one at the top uses Patreon's js, just for styling the button I think. I assume you're getting some js error when that happens but without being able to recreate it, it's hard to say what. If anyone else reports it, maybe I'll just put a hardcoded link at the top, too. Thanks for the effort in sending the screencaps.
  8. 3D Printing

    Oh really! I’ve been adding my own supports all along as I’ve not typically found the software smart enough. Some even occasionally leaving impossible surfaces with no supports at all. Anyway here’s another successful print! And I’m now printing the most first world thing I could think of with my big first world toy: a wall mounted hanger for my aeropress.
  9. 3D Printing

    Printed this guy to live on my desk at work Here's some D&D miniatures They look a bit rough, they could do with a wet n dry sanding, but they're very very small so the roughness isn't too noticeable irl. They were printed with a .2mm nozzle. Also printed my SO a phone case that came out pretty well, added a pattern to it using tinkercad.
  10. Questions

    @Sméagol that's hugely appreciated, thank you. Cards are charged at the start of the month which is when Patreon advises to dish out rewards, so I'm going to go with that model for now. I'm not sure I'm following you on what you can and cannot see... What part looks like a suspicious link? Perhaps a screengrab could help. Or is your post from before I added the new box? The button disappearing was an issue with Patreon's script caused by it being loaded in two places, thought I'd stamped that out, could it be some adblocking software that hides it
  11. Other collectables

    Can't pretend I wouldn't like this, but gotta vote with your wallet sometimes! Still annoyed at myself that I paid for the special edition of what turned out to be my Most Disappointing Game of All Time.
  12. 3D Printing

    I bought a mirror tile from Ikea that has helped a lot, much flatter than the glass it arrived with. And then I stuck the Hictop surface layer on top of that, no longer a waste of money now it has the mirror to sit on. With that on, I don't need glue sticks or anything else anymore. I also bought some new nozzles, and have been printing my D&D miniatures out with a 0.2 nozzle at 0.05-0.08mm layers although that takes a very long time. Some of my friends have bought their player character pieces custom designed from Hero Forge and I have been printing those out. I'll get a picture of the whole lot soon!
  13. Monster Hunter World (PS4)

    I've played this game quite a lot and I still don't even know what a crown is. Where do you guys find all the time for this?
  14. 3D Printing

    I actually bought some HICTOP surfaces at £20, just stick them on the glass, but they made things worse. Eventually though I have gotten things working well! Took a lot of levelling and relevelling and experimenting with temperatures but here's Baba Lysaga's Creeping Hut for my D&D game.
  15. Kirby Star Allies

    Will this make for a good two-player game? My only other Switch multiplayer is Snipperclips.
  16. Monster Hunter World (PS4)

    How are you still dealing with cutscenes? The story mode is a distant memory to me
  17. The first game is a bit of a QTE shitshow (but with great visuals and a nice retelling of the story) with a clunky overworld between missions (put hugely to shame by that pair of Ubisoft games we got a few years ago, kinda sad they never made any more of those). After that it gets a bit more fun, the boss fights and QTEs get much better. The visuals really are stunning, some of the best anime art-to-game models. Especially when you consider they're replacing an anime that often completely cheaped out on their animation, this is about the best presentation the series will likely ever get. Kinda weird also that this is seemingly just the trilogy rather than the recent Legacy re-release for PS4 that bundled in the 4th game and all DLC.
  18. 3D Printing

    Sometimes startup noises can be fixed by swapping out a relatively cheap fan inside the box, or even just oiling it a bit. Another tip I read was to buy an extension for the micro SD card because they're prone to breaking and you're in a mess if that happens. I also set up octoprint with relative ease on a spare Raspberry Pi which gives you a web interface to control your prints (and means you don't need the SD slot at all)
  19. 3D Printing

    Yes but there's a few issues. Firstly one corner won't typically touch the paper at all, the handle will fully unscrew before it gets level. I can fix that by adjusting the z-axis by hand but that seems less than ideal and throws everything out. After getting all four corners roughly level, I'll typically find the centre is way too low, touching the glass even. I flipped it and that didn't really change. I think this has all come down to having an issue with the right lead screw during installation, which lead to me needing new couplers. Anyway, I'll try adjusting that again and I've also bought a hictop printing surface from amazon that might help.
  20. Films you've walked out of...

    Good gravy that's what we call thread necromancy. I want to say I've never walked out of a film but maybe in 2010 I was a compulsive liar and I don't want to get caught out.
  21. 3D Printing

    I haven't had a lot of success with this thing so far. I had one great print of an Oddish plant pot, and a few miniature figures, but most things since then have failed for various reasons. Very difficult to get my bed and z-axis level on both sides :/ Wish I had more time to work on it.
  22. Netflix

    The live action Fullmetal Alchemist surprised me by being suddenly available, I had no idea it was nearly out or headed to Netflix. That said, found the whole thing kinda dull and silly in the first five minutes and couldn't stick with it.
  23. 3D Printing

    @Happenstance that's great actually, thank you. The replacement coupling I've bought is exactly like that so it will help a lot. Mine came with the ones discussed here: https://www.reddit.com/r/CR10/comments/7v28im/how_do_i_keep_my_lead_screw_couplers_from/
