Toki sur Nintendo Switch (dématérialisé)

2 mars 2024 à 14:55
1,04€ - Nintendo

Toki repart à l’aventure ! Le jeu culte d’action/plateforme initialement sorti sur borne d’arcade en 1989 revient dans une nouvelle version des plus simiesques ! Entièrement redessinée à la main et réorchestrée intégralement !

Toki le guerrier vit paisiblement dans la jungle en compagnie de sa bien-aimée Miho. Surgissant de nulle part, l’atroce sorcier vaudou Vookimedlo et l’ignoble démon Bashtar kidnappent Miho et transforment le pauvre Toki en chimpanzé ! Le voilà devenu poilu, lent et nonchalant ! Sa bien-aimée a du souci à se faire…

Redécouvrez Toki 30 ans plus tard :
Incarnez Toki et parcourez de sublimes environnements envahis par d’immondes créatures !

Le Labyrinthe, le Lac de Neptune, la Caverne de Feu, Le Palais de Glace, la Jungle des ténèbres et le Palais dorée sont infestés par les sous-fifres de Vookimedlo. Délivrer Miho ne va pas être une mince affaire ! Ces êtres abjects qui répondent aux doux noms de Boloragog, Rambacha, Mogulvar, Zorzamoth et Bashtar font véritablement froid dans le dos et ce n’est pas l’allure de Toki qui va vous rassurer !

Il va donc falloir faire avec les moyens du bord pour vous en sortir. Toki peut heureusement marcher, sauter, nager, grimper et cracher ! En effet, c’est bien de la salive habilement utilisée qui permet à Toki de se débarrasser de ses ennemis…

Retrouvez la difficulté légendaire de l’âge d’Or du jeu vidéo :
"Insert coin" … encore et toujours pour arriver au bout de l’aventure ! Les bornes d’arcade vous ont ruiné ? Il est temps de vous rattraper en jouant dans des conditions plus confortables mais avec un gameplay toujours aussi exigeant. Les High score n’attendent que vous !

Les nouveaux venus apprécieront néanmoins un nouveau mode plus tolérant.

Un véritable Remake réalisé de la main de maîtres :
Le jeu a été entièrement redessiné à la main par Philippe Dessoly, illustrateur de célèbres mangas tels que Albator et Goldorak, de comics et de jeux vidéo. Il a travaillé à l’époque sur la version Amiga de Toki en 1991 et a également dessiné pour le jeu Mr. Nutz (1992). Ces esquisses permettent à Toki de revenir plus beau et plus toqué que jamais.

La musique, intégralement réorchestrée par le compositeur Raphaël Gesqua promet une aventure rythmée aux notes retro et moderne à la fois. Ce musicien attitré a déjà composé la musique d’une centaine de jeux vidéo.

Sur le plan technique, c’est à l’énorme travail de Pierre Adane qu’on doit la prouesse de cette expérience palpitante. Le développeur a notamment travaillé sur Mr. Nutz (1992) et a créé le jeu de Tennis Top Spin (2003).

French Court Issues Damages Award For Violation of GPL

Par : EditorDavid
3 mars 2024 à 03:04
Some news from "Copyleft Currents", the blog of open-source/IP lawyer Heather Meeker: On February 14, 2024, the Court of Appeal of Paris issued an order stating that Orange, a major French telecom provider, had infringed the copyight of Entr'Ouvert's Lasso software and violated the GPL. They ordered Orange to pay €500,000 in compensatory damages and €150,000 for moral damages. This case has been ongoing for many years. Entr'ouvert is the publisher of Lasso, a reference library for the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) protocol, an open standard for identity providers to authenticate users and pass authentication tokens to online services. This is the open protocol that enables single sign-on (SSO). The Lasso product is dual licensed by Entr'Ouvert under GPL or commercial licenses. In 2005, Orange won a contract with the French Agency for the Development of Electronic Administration to develop parts of the service-public.fr portal, which allows users to interact online with the government for administrative procedures. Orange used the Lasso software in the solution, but did not pass on the rights to its modifications free of charge under GPL, or make the source code to its modifications available. Entr'Ouvert sued Orange in 2010, and the case wended its way through the courts, turning on, among other things, issues of proof of Entr'Ouvert 's copyright interest in the software, and whether the case properly sounded in breach of contract or copyright infringement... The compensatory damages were based on both lost profits of the plaintiff and disgorgement of profits of Orange. Moral damages compensate the plaintiff for harm to reputation or other non-monetary injury. Thanks to long-time Slashdot reader AmiMoJo for sharing the article.

The compact camera conundrum

The compact camera conundrum by Paul's Photo:

After years of searching there is a solution that works! What camera fits in a pocket, delivers great picture quality, has a pleasurable user-interface and meets the needs of a discriminating photographer?  The solution is at hand.

The most popular cameras today are full-frame mirrorless cameras because of the superb picture quality, intuitive controls and amazing performance. Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras top the best-sellers list with amazing choices that are smaller than ever. Yet every photographer longs for a pocket-able camera for a night on the town, dinner with friends, a hike, just to fit in a pocket or when we need discretion! How can we have our cake and eat it too? It’s possible.‍

The first option is the mobile phone. Yes, we all make phone-photos but most of us are not satisfied with the quality of the results or the creative options (ISO, shutter speed, aperture). In the past we have all bought the “premium pocket camera” like the Sony RX or Canon G and found the pictures and experience un-inspiring compared to our “big cameras.”

We bought M 4/3 and APS-C cameras and discovered the size is not-that-much-smaller than our Full-Frame cameras and the picture quality, camera utility, and photographer experience leaves us dissatisfied. Another good try yet fail.

YES, there is a workable and satisfactory solution to the compact camera conundrum…

Your favorite brand’s smallest Full-Frame mirrorless camera with a compact prime lens is the answer. For me, that’s the Nikon Z7ii with the 26mm 2.8! For you it might be the Canon R8 with 28mm 2.8 or Nikon Zf with 40mm 2 or the Sony a7C paired with the 35mm 2.8. These small Full-Frame cameras slip easily into a small purse, jacket pocket or walk-around in your hand. They offer the user interface, camera performance, picture quality and photo experience that makes you happy! Now, you have to agree to go with “no kit” to keep it small.

Go light and have some fun! Charged battery and formatted memory card in the camera and a minimal strap (Peak Designs CUFF wrist strap or LEASH neck strap recommended). Leave the case, bag, lenses, filters, charger and stuff at home. Just your camera in the pocket or purse.

On a recent rainy afternoon, I wanted to test my new compact camera concept. Off to LAX to do some street and location photography with Nikon Z7ii and 26mm 2.8. The camera fit ideally in my raincoat pocket and was 100% unobtrusive…. avoiding the gaze and ire of travelers and security alike. Using the flip-up screen, face-detect auto focus, AUTO ISO and manual exposure the photos appeared magically. It was freeing and exciting to walk and shoot effortlessly.  The images were sharp, in focus and well exposed in a variety of lighting conditions…. just like you expect from your Sony, Nikon or Canon camera and lens!

The true test of concept was a night at Disney’s California Adventure with the wife and friends. This was a dinner-date and fun evening not a photo shoot. Camera in my pocket and a smile on my face. Low light, moving subjects, walking and talking all night and my kit captured amazing photos! What a joy to make pictures and have fun while not being “that guy” with my camera kit.  Being able to control the focus square, shoot high ISO and wide aperture made me “feel like a photographer” without the baggage, while still being the attentive spouse! It was so much fun.

Having our full kit of photo gear is amazing. It captures superb photos. Sometimes, we need a smaller kit. My compact mirrorless Full-Frame camera kit allows us to tell our story and record the memories and be the photographer with just a camera in the purse, pocket or in my hand. Yes, they are available at PAUL’S PHOTO. In store, online or by phone.

Boeing Now Also Ordered to Fix Anti-Ice System on 737 Max, 787 Jets

Par : EditorDavid
3 mars 2024 à 00:20
America's Federal Aviation administration "will require a fix for a new 737 MAX design problem discovered by Boeing that, although it's a remote possibility, could theoretically disable the jet's engine anti-ice system," reports the Seattle Times: A different flaw in the MAX's engine anti-ice system design drew scrutiny in January and forced the company to drop a request for an exemption from key safety regulations. And now, it's not just the MAX with an engine anti-ice system problem. Airlines have reported a separate issue with a similar system on Boeing's 787 Dreamliner that has caused what the FAA calls "relatively minor" damage to the engine inlets on some two dozen of these widebody jets in service. Though the FAA considers neither problem to be an immediate risk to flight safety, in February it issued separate notices of two proposed airworthiness directives to require the fix for the engine anti-ice system on the MAX and to lay out inspection and repair procedures for that system on the 787, pending a redesign that provides a permanent fix... When there is an immediate safety risk, the FAA issues a more urgent emergency directive that must be acted upon before further flight. Jets are grounded until it's dealt with. That's not the case with these two proposed airworthiness directives. Indicating that the risk is considered slight, both of the proposed directives will be open for public comments until April. Only after that will action be mandated... On the MAX, the proposed FAA directive states that Boeing identified a potential single point of failure when it reviewed the internal design of the unit that provides a backup power supply to aircraft systems if the primary electrical system fails. Such a failure could potentially result in the loss of the anti-ice systems on both engines, with no indication or warning that would alert the pilots, the FAA directive states... In November 2022, Boeing sent a service bulletin alerting airlines and describing the required fix, which the FAA will now mandate... Unlike this MAX issue, the fault discovered on the 787 Dreamliner has resulted in actual damage to engines on passenger aircraft. The FAA airworthiness directive on the 787 states that "damage was found during overhaul on multiple inlets around the Engine Anti-Ice duct within the inlet aft compartment." Rather than a production issue, it was a matter of the seals being insufficiently durable. Even when the plane was flying in dry air and the anti-ice system was not switched on, the seal degradation led to hot air leaking into the inlet compartment, "exposing inlet components to high temperatures," the FAA states. Boeing said this resulted in "thermal damage and discoloration to a limited area of the surrounding composite and metallic structure inside the inlet...." The FAA's proposed airworthiness directive warns that heat damage to the inlet structure could lead to "reduced structural strength and departure of the inlet from the airplane." "Departure of the inlet" is a bland way of describing the front of the pod around the engine fan detaching, potentially striking the jet's wing, tail or fuselage. Such disintegration could result in "subsequent loss of continued safe flight and landing or injury to occupants," the airworthiness directive states... "A separate question is how this flaw with the 787 anti-ice duct seals and the single point of failure in the backup power supply on the MAX slipped through the FAA's original certification of these aircraft." Business Insider also reports that Boeing "is holding off on a planned expansion of production for its 737 Max planes after an Alaska Airlines flight lost a chunk of the plane while airborne in January."
