I like 2020-2 personally. But either way doesnt matter, we need a newer sticky.

Also, another URL id recomment adding:

Aren't userscripts pretty cyberpunk, altering websites to work the way you want them to? Got any personal ones you want to share or userscripts that you recommend?

After hooktube went RIP I got encouraged to write a userscript that works similarly, but without the need for a web server. See pic related for how a youtube page looks with the script (clicking on Lain downloads the video with the video title as the filename and the small + sign stretches the video to fit the screen). The script basically removes the bloat/tracking on youtube pages and then fetches the direct video links and puts the in the standard HTML5 video player. The only video type that it doesn't support in my knowledge are paid videos, but it gives you the option to watch the preview for it. It currently supports the following kinds of youtube videos:

>regular ones

>ciphered ones (videos with copyrighted music, vevo shit etc)

>age restricted videos

>videos flagged for "offensive content"

>geo restricted videos (uses a proxy to bypass)


>unlisted videos

The userscript only supports Tampermonkey out of the box, but you can manually make it compatible with both Greasemonkey, Violentmonkey or any other userscripts managers (remove the GM_download sections, fix the GM commands to use the equivalents and change the GM.getValue commands to use the structure of the userscript manager you use). There's two versions of the userscript, one for max 360p and one for max 720p and a companion userscript for 8chan is also available, which edits all youtube and hooktube embeds/links to work with the userscript.

HAM radio on drugs



What every you want outside of punking using cyber



Once headsets are high res enough not to have any SDE and maybe near the same FOV as regular sight I'd buy one.

I'd love to be able to replace every screen in the house with a VR headset. Photorealistic environments, using a virtual monitor to play some old vidya while watching a movie on what looks like a 100 inch screen.

I'd probably find life a lot more tolerable if I can put on a headset to slip into an environment indistinguishable from the real one.


Besides passing lots of time on my Computer various things, I'm trying to get into electronics. I'm also into music, litterature and cinema. manual work is also interesting me a lot.

… I think you just described normal fans. Like, the most normal of normal people, who understand Cyberpunk is a genre of fiction, and enjoy it as such.

Get your head out of your ass, you're not the 'real' people.


People just need to post more. For all we know there are only two guys here but they're making ten peoples' worth of posts.



cyberpunk is "a genre of fiction" in the same way that dystopian is

that doesn't make you any less of a shazbot for consuming cyberpunk media without absorbing any of its ethos


There are only a small handful of things that fit this board.




-current events mirroring the fiction

There isn't a great deal of cyb fiction being produced and imo what is be produced lacks the depth that older entries into the genre had. It seems like the userbase here isn't that intrested in the fassion other than something nice to look at, and projects depend on people actually doing a thing. Not to mention what would have been very cyb in the 90s/00s is now just another adrino/pi project. Technology has been fairly demystified by it's availability and the availability of learning materials (not that that is a bad thing). Current events seems to be the hardest to discuss because it usually results in bi-partisan autistic screeching.



What the fuck is a fassion

Old thread is still afloat, but it won't open and is near bump-limit, so new one is in order I guess.

Anyway, Zachtronics did a new thing, this time cyberpunk/hacking themed.

Doesn't look that different from his other ones gameplay-wise from trailer though, especially Shenzhen I/O.

and with same issue: looks fun, but why shouldn't I just learn real assembly instead?

Amazing that we've come full circle and now nonlinear/open world is considered bad. The satellite reign open world was moderately bad, but that doesn't make open world a bad genre



Open World isn't 'bad', it's just a technique that appeals to fat escapists who can't get laid, because you have they need their 'immersion' to help them forget that they're in they still live with their parents, can't get laid and have no friends.

The original Syndicate was a game you could fire up and play over your lunch break, then get back to doing whatever you do with your day.

Sandbox games explicitly require long periods of exploration and immersion to get anywhere. You have to be able to drop at least 2 hours at a time, several times a week, to get any enjoyment out of them at all. Most of the time, you'd need even longer play periods to really enjoy it.

If you have that kind of time, and you're sinking it into video games, there's something wrong with your life, and video games are just taking advantage of that.



I don't think it's bad, I just feel like it's taking over the game industry, in a way. I'd like more linear games to balance it out. I'm not personally a big fan of open world games though.



Feeling annoyed at yourself anon?

Would there still be primitive hunter-gatherer/agrarian/pastoral cultures on the remote fringes of a /cyber/ world? What would be the relationship between the tribesmen and the megalopolitans? And how would the introduction of /cyber/ tech affect cultural traditions and intertribal warfare?


File: b83470bd73d5ef6⋯.jpg (120.11 KB, 714x474, 119:79, code 46.jpg)


this reminds me of the movie Code 46 and the people who lived outside the city walls

i would imagine it would affect the primitives like the coke bottle in The Gods Must Be Crazy. they might worship the fallen cellphone every time it rings, and upon discovering how to answer, believe the telemarketer was some type of prophet

in all seriousness tho, we are headed toward a polarizing future with little to no middle class. the 1% will have everything life extension tech, super-surveillance, walled cities and high-tech militarized security while the proletariat will starve under the glow of a flatscreen pumping out only what they want you to know, mainly that you should be thankful to serve them and eat the scraps from their table. these proletariat would use tech to attack the system and find better ways just to make ends meet. hacking in one way or another will most likely be mandatory for survival

its gonna be like a real life hunger games or maybe the stack and pack of dredd


Most likely. Just look at the modern world: We've got billionaires putting their cars into space, ordinary citizens carry around rectangles that have access to all human knowledge, we're editing our genes, we've had working jetpacks, we get pictures from the surface of other planets and it doesn't even make the news, and we're on the cusp of autonomous vehicles becoming the norm.

Then we've got a tribe of retards on an island in India that haven't discovered fire yet.

Thanks chum, that was just the push I needed to commit suicide.

What's more cyber, hanging yourself with a USB cable or a strip of LED lights? I'm thinking the lights, I'll get a cheap rain and light sensor from adafruit and hook it up to my raspberry pi. Put it on a time delay to make sure I'm dead then when they find my corpse swinging from a tree it'll be all neon and rainy. Schway as fuck.


You don't hate us. You hate yourself for not being able to fill that void you hoped this place would fill in you.

I like playing out this idea in my head of starting a cyberpunk bar. I got no brouzouf to do it with, but I like to dream.

What would a modern day cyberpunk-bar look like? What kind of name would it have? What drinks would it serve?

I figured it would probably have the local cheaper beer on tap, as well as something like Asahi (or a themed house beer), with cyberpunk themed cocktails and cheaper food to eat (everything from instant noodles to bar pizza).

As for the name, ideas like the "Capsule Bar" or "Neo-Tokyo" are the first things that come to mind.

Adding to this. Fever Dream would accommodate aggressive electronic music styles(EBM, Oldschool Industrial, drum and bass, outrun, etc), goth, and maybe metal.

Bar food would be kept simple and able to be handheld. Tacos and wraps, burgers, etc. Also available would be meal replacement items like Soylent.

Private rooms would have slightly more advanced foods such as Soba, Nachos, Cheese/dried fruits/nuts platters, poutine, etc.

Prices would be kept as cheap as possible, and curated vendors would be allowed to set up either outside of the building or perhaps in a room off the hallway but still kept outside of the club proper. That way people could sell electronics, light up/glowing shit, 3D printed stuff, clothing, etc.




ok buddy



Go light on broth, heavy on spices, crunchy veggies, and protein.



The thing about salty drinks/liquid food is that they won't quench your thirst.

They might not dehydrate you, maybe even rehydrate you a bit (depending on the amount of salt), but they just don't feel satisfying.

People eat salty chips and then wash it down with beer or coke for the sweet, schway contrast. Same would work with ramen.



Would witch house music fit in with a cyberpunk theme? A friend and I have joked about a witch house bar for a while, and I believe some tracks have that kind of feel.

> Wasting that much on silkscreen

The only way I would be more mad is if this board didn't do anything.

Anyway, if you want to get started, you probably want to learn a little about hardware, and assembly. I was taught with Logisim (http://www.cburch.com/logisim/) and MARS (http://courses.missouristate.edu/KenVollmar/mars/). I hear my uni has moved from MIPS to ARM since it's more relevant nowadays. I don't know of any good simulators for it though.

If you want to design your own boards eventually (and don't work at a big company that can shell out for E N T E R P R I S E software, check out LibrePCB (http://librepcb.org/) or go hardcore and learn VHDL/Verilog



VHDL isn't that difficult, really.

You just have to get used to defining your hardware as text.

Returns are amazing, as it's very powerful and you can parse it easily in case you want to work with the format in your own software.



I remember seeing my father solder a laptop circuit bord back together and i thought it was the coolest thing i ever saw in my life.

He winged it, never done it before, and it worked.


Get the book: Practical ELectronics for Inventors by Simon Monk & co. It is an information gold mine. A good reference when you need basic well phrased definitions and equations.

Get an Arduino/Teensy/ESP32 and start writing microcontroller code. The IDE is very simple and it automates many operations to allow beginners to stay focused on their project. Later on, you can tweak the compiler flags for better code quality or even ditch the IDE and use gcc & avrdude or whatever suits your evolutionary needs at that point.

You should get a sensors pack and start building a device that measures and acts upon the measured data. This would require you to read datasheets and familiarize yourself with the process of discovery.

Once you understand the basics of digital and analog (Debouncing, Sampling, Pulse width modulation, Interrupts, Timers, …) and communications protocols (Serial, SPI, I2C, I2S, …) the rest is up to your imagination.

Get a Raspberry Pi and get aquainted with the environment and stay low level.

Avoid Python at the beginning, do everything in C and assembly if you can.

Get a Lattice ICE40 FPGA (cheap: 1K, 4K, 8K logic elements) and use the "icestorm" open source toolchain to synthesize verilog, generate a bitstream and upload it to the chip. There are many ICE40 boards available: Ico board, ICEZero for Raspberry Pi, Lattice ICEStick, …

Sharpen your coding skills by writing as much code as you can with two optimizations in mind: smaller code size possible, fastest program possible. Also, study whataver code you find in the wilderness and learn to use GDB & objdump (or any equivalent tools).

Take a look at parallel programming: OpenMP, MPI, vectorization, …

Read the underlying hardware's documentation to understand its potential and how to exploit it properly.

I would recommand:

. Introduction to Algorithms, Cormen & co.

Not OP, just wanted to say:

It's great to see a post with this much effort. Nicely done, anon.

Although you may have overshot it a bit. After you're done with the first half, you'll know what to do next to hone your skills yourself. While the other half (C projects) contains great suggestions, at that point you should just focus on what you personally find interesting.

Since theres a lot of doom and gloom about the low PPH on /cyber/, I'll contribute stuff about my videogame. (This is the hacking sim/strategy game, not the point and click adventure, which is >>26172)

Theres two modes to it, one being the command line hacking aspect, and the other being a city view where you direct your agents to different locations to perform different actions. Thats one thing I liked about Hacker Evolution, it gave a distinct sense of 'place', where your level was rooted clearly in some physical part of the world, like an office building or intersection, or more broadly a city.

>Why start this thread?

I'm hoping to harvest some of the passion /cyber/ has for this kind of thing. Story-wise, I lean towards a lot of the themes present in cyberpunk, such as corruption, haves vs. have-nots, and tech knowledge opening up doors that most people don't know about. But its more like this game brushes up against a lot of /cyber/ themes, rather than this being Cyberpunk: The Game.

Currently I'm focusing on programming the world views, systems, and content creation tools. There isn't really any content yet. Halfchan agdg has a demo day on Nov 8th, so I'm trying to have something for that. Until then, anon has made some schway music for the game, only one of them is on their soundcloud though:


As for playable versions, I dont want to put up something boring and give a bad first impression, but when I do it'll go on vestigial.itch.io

Thanks friend, the current version is


but its pretty buggy. I changed how conversations work, and towards the end of the demo the smug character just calls you a fag over and over, because a previous conversation gets stuck on it's last node.

I had a lot of trouble adding saving and loading, but obviously its a crucial thing so I couldn't give up. F5 to quicksave, F9 to quickload. The other thing I added was metrics :^) to get some idea of how far players were going through the demo.

There has been a lot of buzz lately about cryptojacking, where you insert a javascript cryptocurrency miner into a webpage and it mines while the user is there. A few big companies got caught doing it, like Showtime and UFC (?) but the most interesting thing was someone hacked the DNS entry that points to where the cryptominer file is hosted, so when clients would pull the miner, they'd pull a poisoned version with a hardcoded wallet address. All the mining would be sent to the hackers wallet, pretty genius.

Thinking of doing a 'leet h4x0r' stock model thing for a marketing campaign, like pic related. There hasn't been any media interest, one youtuber messaged me but since the game isn't ready to be played they couldn't help me. Its painful to see PC Gamer etc do entire articles on "release date set for CoD:WW2 specs" but its my own fault for not reaching out to them.

Latest version of the demo


It says its over a little prematurely, you can run the bruteforcer successfully, but there's no SSH client to use the credentials you find.


Started over on this, in case anon is wondering. Trying to get an eye tracker company to give me a free unit so you can hack without having to move your hands to the mouse.

DEFCON is going on right now so its pretty inspiring, but its also really frustrating to be bogged down in development bullshit like making a code change that breaks all your fragile content objects. But things are much more moddable now, you can create your own programs/GUIs in the game, in addition to game world things like an office with computers to hack into.

Unfortunately the actual gameplay is back to square one at this point, you can log in and get to the desktop with a terminal open. I've been working nonstop for the past week but one little unexpected error can absorb an whole day of work.

Thank you for reading my blog, I'll post another demo link when one is ready



this game looks really cool and interesting, but i get stuck at the "search kensington.com on the browser for a username" nothing comes up for me there, just the circle logo



Sorry anon I dont even have the source code anymore for that version, to see whats wrong.

He(she, they) went to a lot of trouble to put shit online for YEARS, and then the ARG, the puzzles, and all the shit you'd do … aren't?

Just moved to ruralville usa myself, renovating and living in shithole turn of the century house doing a simmilar but poor-mans version of this, one peice at a time. Care to detail more for inspiration?


from my experiences, the cyberpunk aspects of rural life currently boil down to:

>internet connected agricultural equipment (IoT)

>megacorp gene modified crops

>proprietary software and specialized OS for agricultural equipment (the farmer may own the tractor, but the software is licensed) so some farmers hack their equipment

>metadata based farming techniques

if I had to take a guess where all of this was headed, i would say it is likely that once everything goes full automated, farmers will just rent/sell land to megacorps who will conduct every step from farm to table using automation

Rural Cyberpunk? You mean like satellite internet?

I live out in a rural area.

The best encapsulation is a small hub of high technology in the middle of nowhere. Or working on a network from a remote terminal in a grain silo which has a fiber over the air connection to the main data center.

That's what I did up until last week. Sometimes It would be working from home. Other times I'd drive to the nearest network tower, tap into the router, and then do work from there.

It was rather nice working on a networking issue in the middle of nowhere with only the gentle breath of wind and the occasional sound of wildlife in the distance.

This tactical pocket-sweater sold for a nifty 1305 USD; seems like the fashion trends are going to catch up to our tech pretty soon.


What are you wearing /cyber/? And what do you want to wear?

so good, read it twice now. Gotta read Homeland soon.



Homeland wasn't bad, but it felt somehow less likely by the end. Which is funny, because I'd say everything in Homeland was statistically far more likely than anything from Little Brother.

I do like Corey Doctor's ideas for use in subversive tech. It's not about being a super-hacker. It's not about the things you CAN do, or COULD do, but instead the things you WOULD do.

I think hacking, and hacktivism, is limited by the need for everyone to feel 'elite' about everything. If you stop and look at the biggest leaks that actually hurt the government, it was mostly a case of people who had access for their jobs making copies of things, and sending them out into the world. Hardly mask-wearing super-hackers breaking into top secret installations and stealing sensitive data.

In that vein Doctorow doesn't give us super-hacker characters. His protagonists are people with a good fundamental understanding of technology, and the willingness to leverage it.

In the first book, the two major 'hacks' are installing linux on a popular gaming system, something that was already common practice, but he puts a twist on it by giving people a security minded option. Then they start copying RFID cards, which is another simple trick that anyone can, and everyone does, pull.

I think if you're looking for a more realistic view of 'cyber' protest, you need to read his work and see that it's not about a single ultra-proficient super-hero hacker, it's about finding tech protests that everyone can and will participate in.


I'm not very well informed on cyberpunk clothing buy I value flexibility above all else. I basically wear plain black sports clothing and for the haircut I go with a buzzcut. To get an idea - in the spring/summer I wear running/swimming shorts with a tshirt or a tanktop and a zip up/regular hoodie if it's night and chilly. I hate uncomfortable shoes so I only wear running shoes. A backpack and a cap (only if it's blazing hot) and I'm ready for anything.



I don't think 'Cyberpunk Clothing' is a thing, honestly. No one here is wearing tech clothes. Literally, no one I've ever met, is wearing tech clothes.

Cyber has the problem that most of the people who are into it, are so fat that style really doesn't enter into it.

The occasional skinny, or even 'good looking' guys are probably wearing normal clothes and going to a decent job. Having your health together follows with having your life together, and people who have their life together aren't trying to figure out how to dress like an urban ninja.



well-said anon.put everything perfectly. It's next on my reading list so will at least give it a shot. Doctorow's writing fascinates me and I definitely felt that way about Little Brother and felt connected to the characters…almost wish I had a gang like that when I was in high school
