Topic: Game Programming / C++ robotic programming without robots

lieutenant swat llama I didn’t know you knew C++, thats awesome.
But these boards don’t support C++ from what I’ve read… do they? I thought they had their own specific language.

Sozzy, it doesn’t use C++, but it uses something that is very very similar. So learning C++ is a very good idea since I think its’ language is more of a modification of C++.

If it uses a modification of C that is not object oriented, you cannot do it with C++.
If it uses C++ or a derivative of C++, I don’t think you can use C either.

Topic: Game Programming / C++ robotic programming without robots

There are arduino boards with which you can experiment. http://www.arduino.cc/ A friend of mine has the exact one on the front page.
And yes, C++ is a very interesting language. My favorite. :)

They should decide. I can’t see any positives or negatives of any of the options for them.

Topic: Game Programming / Windows 8 Thoughts

Vista is still working fine, despite the slow startup. But, just press the power button, go do something, come back and viola!

Windows 8 is a small downgrade for you. Just a small one.

Blobby, MS is basing this off the whole idea that people who use desktops will buy one of their touch mice, so that they get hardware sales as well.

Topic: Game Programming / First time computer builder.

You might want to put the actual computer on the floor. That way if you get an earthquake, it won’t fall and break. You’ll also have those ugly wires out of the way.

I don’t have anything to really contribute to this, but I want to say that I love it when a developer puts in his own personal time to help save the rest of us time. Good job, Senekis.

That’s not helping… and why did this get moved to the OT area? It’s actually a serious thing. I want real answers, not the OT people. Oh well, answer if you can. :)

I don’t remember if I already replied to this topic, but my answer is no, women shouldn’t fight on the frontlines.That’s since we shouldn’t be having these useless wars.

Topic: Off-topic / Good Linux Distrobution?

Hiya! I’m making the move to Linux. Right now, I have Debian on a test computer, but find it a little advanced. What’s another good linux distrobution? I don’t want to use Suse or anything with Gnome 3/Unity interface. , which rules straight-out Mandriva, Fedora, and Ubuntu. I’m not keen on LXDE either. Any suggestions?

On a side note, how do I install tar.bz2 packages? For example, S auerbraten comes in a tar.bz2 package, but being a Windows user my whole life, I can’t figure out how to install anything not from the software center. :)

Topic: Game Programming / Windows 8 Thoughts

Wow! It starts up so much faster than Win7. My method of determining startup speed is to measure the time until I can use my primary email application. Win7: About 2 minutes. Win8: About 45 seconds.

Yeah, I was thoroughly impressed with the start time. It’s really fast. I don’t care quite so much about start time as how programs run. As I think I previously mentioned, I had to overclock my RAM to 3.5 times it’s default 800mhz.

EndlessSporadic is the cupcake. Microsoft is the cake.

Topic: Game Programming / Getting Started Making Multiplayer Games In Unity

Unity may not do some of the things Unreal does out-of-the-box. What Unity does is provides a system that is fundamentally more manageable and extensible than anything the Unreal engine will ever be.

Why’s that?

IF YOU HATE UNITY, LEAVE THE THREAD NOW PLEASE, WITHOUT LEAVING A ‘UNITY SUCKS’ COMMENT. THIS THREAD WILL CONTAIN CRAPTONS OF UNITY

I like Unity, but you will get a lot of “BLAH I HATE THIS SHIT” comments.

False. I have it installed, use Windows and can’t play over 95% of Unity games.

On my old computer, the one unity game that didn’t run very well was Red Crucible 2. It usually crashed, but that was due to a lack of power, not Unity itself… unless you count how verbose Unity games are when they shouldn’t be so CPU intensive.

As for Torque, it DOES have a built-in level editor.

Now, back on topic.
Most like text tutorials, and those are the preferred method. Before you get into multiplayer games, you have to explain hundreds of other things in Unity, and teach the scripting or refer us to other references.

Topic: Game Programming / Getting Started Making Multiplayer Games In Unity

What’s so bad about Unity? Has to be the best game engine I have ever worked with, period.

I’ve tried using UDK.
I’ve tried using Torque.
I’ve tried using NeoAxis.
I’ve tried making Flash games.
I’ve tried making Javascript games.
Never had much success with any of them.
Only with Unity have I actually made any substantial progress on a game.

Torque isn’t an IDE like UDK and Unity are. I don’t know anything about NeoAxis. Flash games aren’t quite an engine, but flash is the format for the games. Javascript is a programming language.

Unity isn’t nearly as good as the Unreal Engine. Unity games are unplayable for a lot of people.

The first sentence is true. The last sentence is only true to Linux users and people too lazy to install it.

I can see why you would prefer text tutorials, since I hate leaving in the middle of the tutorial and then finding my way back, but I learn better from hearing.

Considering that making a multiplayer game takes so much work and effort, it’d be easier for users to follow in forms of video tutorials, I’d imagine.

The lower temperature makes it last longer. I’m surprised your processor and graphics card don’t get hotter, seeing as they aren’t that powerful. Can you play Skyrim on full settings? I’ve heard that you need like, two GTX 690’s or 1 Quadro 6000.

I don’t actually know anything about lights. My case has built in lighted fans that alternate with three modes and 3 colors. You can get lighted fans for intake on the outsides, and I believe that you can get neon strips, but not sure where to put them.

Nice build! But you really overpaid for your processor. I don’t know know any advantages of a z77 motherboard over z68, but there are some.
You could’ve avoided shipping costs if you’d gotten parts from Microcenter.
That’s a really good fan by the way. It might work close to as well as liquid cooling, but that is one of the best fans I’ve ever seen. :) You should get some pretty lights for your pretty case!

Besides plant and water, we’d also need a lot of extra heat sources.

To spread life to mars, we should send bacteria instead. Bacteria that can survive extreme temperatures.
