Well, thanks to everyone who wrote one of those nice long reviews. They were pretty helpful.
I’m not very good at judging things by any means so…

Coin Kid

Incomplete. Was way too tired to pull an all nighter…

Anyways CONTROLS: A to dash, arrows to move/jump.

Still working on it for the few hours we have left. We’ll see what I can get finished…

Really just starting to haul ass… Need to add in power ups, levels, etc but I have the foundation down. We’ll see how it turns out by sunrise. D:

LOL Jesus, sounds there’d be some epic submissions coming in.

OT: The theme doesn’t really concern me. I think the real challenge, as LID mentioned, is making the game in under 10 days. Considering how many unfinished projects I have and how long I’ve spent on them makes this whole GiTD thing interesting to me.

March 30 is good for me, spring break starts then.

Edit: How about the theme of stealth? Stealth has always been a theme that interested me.

Topic: General Gaming / MineCraft Vs. Terraria

Why even compare them? They both feel completely different. I have days worth of game time on both. Terraria definitely has more clear objectives, items, npcs and is geared more toward rpg players. Minecraft is more about creativity and just screwing around and is geared more toward casual gamers.

They’re both awesome addicting games. I wish people would stop pitting things against one another.

Just find and buy them on Amazon, lol. Doesn’t really matter where you find them. And I have an xfx 6850, BF3 runs great on it. Gotta go to sleep. Good luck with your build though.

What you could do is put the hard drive in your computer right now into your new computer. That would knock off a good $100. And then you could shop for these parts on Amazon, instead of NewEgg. Amazon doesn’t charge tax or shipping (Free Super Saver Shipping) for most of their things.

Yep. You just mount it onto the side panel of your case where that mesh is.

There are a lot of tutorials on overclocking your cpu, but don’t worry about that now. Just focus on getting your computer up and running first.

At least upgrade to an Athlon ii x4. An x2 athlon isn’t going to yield much performance when you’re playing games and would bottleneck your GPU. Especially with BF3, you’ll want at least a quad core.

As for the ram, I suggest you get http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231193 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145346
Has heatsinks, overall better quality product. Not much more expensive.

PCI slot fans really aren’t efficient nor necessary, get a case fan for your PC case instead.

That 850watt PSU really isn’t necessary for your build, considering you’re on a pretty tight budget build. A 500 – 600 watt would suffice. Also, you want to get a reputable brand, such as Corsair, for your PSU with 80%+ power certification. PSU failure can spell disaster for your hardware.

I personally would go with a HD 6850 instead of the 560, just because it performance a bit better and it’s cheaper. And I’m also a bit of an AMD fanboy… :P

No incompatibilities that I can see. Your build should work fine. If you plan on overclocking (making the cpu run faster), you might want to get an aftermarket CPU cooler. They reeeeaaallly help out with keeping your CPU cool. I would suggest http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835233081

Might I add he is the world’s largest factory of unfunny trolls.

Topic: Off-topic / RayWilliamJohnson = unfunny?

Definitely unfunny IMO. All he does is steal videos and makes the typical AIDS, cat, abortion, adopted, sexist, and/or racist joke to it and adds high pitched voices. What exactly makes him worthy of 2 million + views a video?

Topic: Off-topic / Newgrounds VS. Kongregate

Well I like the fact that newgrounds displays a wider variety of art forms and they blam crappy flash submissions. Also, the fact that they allow more mature content (which can also be a con…). But I like how kongregate is a lot more community based,a lot simpler, and how there aren’t like 20 badges for one game. I don’t necessarily think one is superior to the other. Both are great sites, it all depends on the preference of the user.

What exactly are the pros/cons of loading external AS files in AS2 instead of scripting everything within the FLA file? The only pro that I know of is neatness.

Hey Tukkun, some while ago I showed you this item and you said you would implement it when you have time. I think you forgot so I’m just reminding you. :P

No pressure whatsoever. And if you don’t want to add it anymore, I’m fine with that.
