AWESOME! pen source karaoke singing game UltraStar Deluxe, inspired by Sony SingStar™ (includes step by step guide to get it working)
tldr guide to get it working: ## Step 1: building you need to build the project (no packages for instance for fedora), but it is easy since build requirements are up to date. However, i had to use the current master version, since the stable release from 2020 wants a version of ffmpeg which is too old for my fedora. received some odd warnings, but the game still works ``` Linking ../game/ultrastardx Warning: "crtbegin.o" not found, this will probably cause a linking failure Warning: "crtend.o" not found, this will probably cause a linking failure 216888 lines compiled, 10.6 sec 59 warning(s) issued 616 note(s) issued make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/username/src/USDX/src' ``` ## Step 2: starting creative commons songs For legal reasons, it doesn't contain for instance copyrighted music and similar. some creative common songs which you can use without much configuration: https://github.com/UltraStar-Deluxe/songs This is great to understand how real examples work and makes step 3 (the interesting part) easier. You need to git clone this repository and then start the game with the path to this repo. ``` $ cd ~/src/USDX/game ~/src/USDX/game $ ./ultrastardx -Songpath ~/songs ``` ## Step 3: starting with copyrighted music Basically, ultrastar just loads whatever music file you dropped in the songs folder. So this way, you can also decide if you want to sing based on an instrumential version or if you want to sing along the original song, with the original singer assisting you. For the text and the notes how high you need to sing, i found this repository which contains both for many popular songs: https://github.com/razzertronic/usdx-songs but it doesn't work yet, the music file is still missing. Look into the creative commons repository and see which folder structure of the songs are expected (cover, text file and music file is important). The music file is also referenced in the song.txt file. This file looks for instance like that. `audio.ogg` must exist. MP3 is just the tag name, so the format doesn't matter. the creative commons repositiory also uses some OGG files. ``` #TITLE:Alle nur geklaut #ARTIST:Die Prinzen #MP3:audio.ogg #BPM:159,75 #GAP:12480 : 0 2 64 Ich ``` Also, i found that the music file i downloaded from youtube and the song.txt don't fit perfectly together, the youtube song lags a few seconds behind. TO fix that, i needed to change the GAP value in the song.txt Another example is: in one Madonna song, i found that one break (short period of silence) was inconsistent to the song.txt. Anyway, i guess you need to be prepared to spend some time to get each song working. Didn't try it yet, but maybe https://github.com/UltraStar-Deluxe/UltraStar-Creator can help with that. However, the software itself, and the overall result is **awesome** and very much on the same level as singstar!

This is just something to keep in mind.

yes, my deleted question was just missunderstanding your question and asking for clarification, but after thinking about it i understood it better

can you comment or post something to the feminism community? then i can appoint you

hmm, i don’t have much experience about cross instance moderation work, but i trust the experience of @NormieGirl@lemmy.perthchat.org

–> so yes, i would be very happy to welcome you in the moderation team!

Hello, recently, a user requested moderation action in a thread in the sublemmy feminism. I came a bit late to the party since i am the only moderator there. Therefore, i request assistance in moderating this sublemmy. Please send me direct messages when you are interested. Things i wish for: * trans and queer inclusive * taking racism seriously * general interest to understand what patriarchy means and how it works, with an intention to abolish patriarchy. At least curiosity in that area would be nice. * some kind of leftist/anarchist/anticapitalist * active user of lemmy --> direct message if interested.

because i don’t have a better sublemmy with equally high user subscriptions

but then the problem is that for instance women are excluded from such movement (probably?) -> and i think the criticism of women in such movements is very important.

so yes i agree that leftist men need to do some work in that area, but i think it is better when noone is excluded from that.

For instance, as @Grograman@sopuli.xyz said:

A lot of issues that men face are directly because of the patriarchy so dismantling it is the only way to fight for men’s rights. Not being taken seriously in sexual assaults, not being equally considered for custody, not being able to express emotions - all of these come from the bullshit patriarchal view of strong men and weak women that the patriarchy enforces. It’s all the same fight.

I think this is important to understand for all people, not only for men. and i think the quality of understanding is higher when all views are included, from all genders.

at the same time:

i recommend to read JJ Bola’s book “Mask Off : Masculinity Redefined”.

Probably a good short version is “Why toxic masculinity hurts men: JJ Bola explains all” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekPg-ZGqvb8

i think this is a good starting point in dismantling patriarchy. But still, dismantling patriarchy is very important.

As a male leftist, i’m critical about that - i think the biggest danger of such a group is that they would not be able to dismantle patriarchy and male supremacy behavior. So the danger would be: if queerfeminist activists criticize this mens group because of patriarchy, their response is “yes, thanks for the critique, we fix that” - but everything stays the same because those men care more about the feminist label and the reputation and the feeling of being feminist than the actual dismantling of male supremacy and patriarchy in leftist groups.

For instance: currently, leftwing groups also have sometimes sexual violence towards women or queer people. From experience (as a male leftist), what happens in many cases is that - especially men - have a bad/superficial understanding of patriarchy and therefore do not stand in solidarity to victims of sexual violence. Patriarchy means that it is quite likely some male friends either have been abusive in the past - or will be abusive in the future. This is a consequence from our society not explaining how good sexual consensus work, how manipulative some behavior can be, etc.

So in short: it is quite likely that those men would not held their friends accountable and talk about how patriarchy works etc, and NOT make sure that something like that (patriarchal behavior) doesn’t happen again.

tldr: as a male leftist working in this area, i am not sure if this group would be able to gain the necessary knowledge about patriarchy, sexual violence, abusive behavior, and other aspects of “toxic” masculinity.

oh hello, didn’t expect you to find you here, welcome!

thanks for the links and further explanation :)

response to the linked github ticket:

instead of limiting the posts, i think the easiest way would be to just adapt the lemmy ranking algorithm https://join-lemmy.org/docs/en/about/ranking.html to include the amount of posts per user and per community. So that it is also logratithmic.

this is what i mean with the above post, that the more a user posts, slowly the ranking decreases for each post. Also for the community.

this is a better solution

i think it makes also sense for the ones you subscribe to. for instance, i have usually like 5 posts from lemmygrad in my feed because they have both many posts and many upvotes - which means high liklihood that their post lands in a high position in the feed.

compare that to instances which are for instance very new and get not many posts and not many upvotes, or only not many upvotes. --> i don’t see them much on my timeline

–> so i think applying that on all communities increases diversity overall, in the lemmyverse

disagree. i found this issue many times in instances which whose activity was perfectly fine otherwise, and for instance even when the default filter would be active, this STILL would be an issue since every post is shown as equally active

i think it depends a lot on your circumstances. i personally send my applications out when i feel i am done with it

Many things about “Political correctness” have some theory behind. So focusing only on “the latest words” without understanding the theory is not good. And with theory, i mean for instance how racism works on a structural level, how it is institutionalized, how people grow up with subtle racism.

However, the way our society works, usually there is not much time to understand the theory, so therefore what remains (that is, the only thing many people have energy for) is a notice.

And specifically about racism, many people (including leftist people) usually think they can’t be racist because they fight against the racist society or nazis or right wing people. But they (leftist, progressive people) forget that racism can also be very subtle. Or it can be structurally: so not understanding how black people experience racism (and that is very complicated to understand, trust me) is sometimes hurtful because white people accidentally act in hurtful ways without knowing it is hurtful.

So one big problem black people have when they want to talk about racism is that white, progressive people act like the black person thinks they are right wing kind of racist. This is even more difficult when black people are frustrated because they have to explain the same thing many times to many different white people.

so in essence: i think the biggest thing you can do is NOT to focus on the latest words which are politically incorrect and however understand the political structure behind that. So understand the oppression marginalized people feel. read books. listen to what they say.

Because, when you have a systematic understanding of how marginalized people are oppressed, it is MUCH easier to talk about for black people. Because when black people criticize you, they obviously also don’t want to hurt your feelings but instead they want political change. They want white people to understand how their oppression works.

And one thing that is usually forgotten when talking about the oppression of marginalized people: people have many different opinions. For instance, Black people also sometimes do not agree with each other when talking about the oppression of black people. So you also have to understand their perspective from a inter-sectional point of view. So, for instance: Black people who experience classism because they grew up very poor have a much different perspective on how racism works compared to black celebrities. For Black women it is also very different, because of the intersection of racism and sexism. For queer jewish people who grew up in an orthodox familiy it is also much different. In general, people have a much different history, for instance also because of how their home country.

And i’d suggest to ask in IRC for support, there are more people to help.

sounds like not all dependencies for pmbootstrap are installed.

würde es nicht sinn machen alles von dieser community in !netzpolitik@feddit.de zu posten?

are you aware that for instance germany has a big right wing scene which support putin? “querdenken”, Qanon and such also fall in this area i think.

also, notice:

  1. the above reddit link is 1 year old. which is a lot in pinephone development.
  2. you might run outdated firmware which could also increase battery live if updated
  3. the above reddit link says that with postmarketos they got 12 hrs battery life, so it might be that some other programs on your device decrease the battery life massively?

it seems to be that postmarketos does not use deep sleep for the pinephone. See this reddit post:

I switched from PM to Mobian. That increased my battery life from 12 hrs to 24+hrs.

and the answer to that:

The reason for this - which OP might also care about - is, that postmarketOS currently does not make use of the Crust firmware, which would put the phone into deep sleep. So the phone runs on full performance until the battery dies eventually. Like if you would connect your PC to a battery this won’t hold up long.

What Crust does is to shut down all unnecessary devices when the phone is unattended, even the CPU. The downside of it is that it has to be fine-tuned properly to make sure that calls and messages still can be received reliable, which is likely what the postmarketOS devs are still working on. For details I recommend to look at https://github.com/crust-firmware/crust.


So that means, you could figure out how deep sleep works on mobian and port that to postmarketos

this is exactly the one i recommend :) yours is just another way of accessing the community.

and queerfeminist theory is not synonymous with being liberal, as for instance also (radical) communist/marxist/anarchist variants of that exist.

I agree that materialist analysis is necessary, but some parts of non-liberal/radical queerfeminism contain materialist analysis?

Proletarian feminism is the way to go, and queer liberation can not come through ‘queerfeminism’ but instead through a workers’ revolution with the right programme.

I disagree that workers revolution leads necessarily to queer liberation. For that to happen you need to include analyse for instance power structures and similar stuff. And this is part of the radical variants. So for instance: worker revolution can also lead to a society in which male workers decide everything and have much power.

I have probably trust issues because my female/trans leftwing environment (people i follow on twitter for instance) usually complain loudly that many/most communist/leftwing men don’t know much about queerfeminist theory and that THEY as women, trans or non-binary people have to explain queerfeminist/trans inclusive theory towards cisgender male people over and over again, because the male people are not very interested in reading in that theory area.

It is true that i don’t understand much abouyt non-western feminism but in the communist areas here on lemmy or lemmygrad or somewhere, i have never read a comment criticizing the lack of female/trans people in high positions of power in communist societies. Or at all talking about that.

So basically: given that china and north korea have much control over how their society works, i kind of expect that they use that to bring female/trans people (or for instance people of color) into positions of power. So basically, i trust female/trans people more in working towards queerfeminist politics as someone like Kim Jong Un. And because i don’t see many female/trans people in those governments (i think they would have said that?), i don’t have much hope.

Do you seriously believe that the DPRK is limiting what haircuts people can have?

I do seriously believe that many communist countries have expectations towards men to fullfill male steretypes, such as “being strong” and such things. For me it is obvious that all societies have a problem with toxic masculinity and structural sexism. One example is that most government people in both communist and capitalistic societies are male-dominated. Just because you have a socialist country which reduces some forms of patriarchy (for instance badly paid care work), it doesn’t mean it is completely gone. So in essence, the lack of queerfeminist theory is a big red flag which makes the article i linked above believable.

In recent months, Kim Jong Un had launched a crackdown on South Korean pop culture, including movies, K-dramas and K-pop videos. Under the same, North Korean authorities have also outlawed ‘non-socialist’ hairstyles such as the spike and mullet along with dyed hair. As part of the new laws, men and women can only sport one of the 215 other hairstyles authorised.


Yeah i saw that. And i also understand the structural anticommunist perspective the article was written in (“west good, east bad”), for instance if US police murders people people don’t complain that much about human rights.

However! I found this article to be interesting because south korean pop culture is also seen as a political threat for north korea and i think this is just hilarious. North korea and similar countries have no strong queer community, because this is against the gender roles the communist government desires for its population.

True is however also that this article does not contain this queer perspective that much, but i remembered this context from other articles about north korea and such.
