As usual I have more incomplete project updates. Haven't done much on any of the games (aside from some music for STRPG) but probably the biggest update is to Generations. It's somewhat interactive now and farther down on the page you'll see what's been added, changed, and planned.

There seems to be an extreme slowness problem with certain video cards and opengl mipmaps in FB. A year and I haven't been able to exactly figure it out. One thing to start using early is glPushMatrix and glPopMatrix. glLoadIdentity is relatively slow (push and pop matrix are actually just pointer s...

It's not entirely programming related (and not FB related at all) but I've got an article up on finding a pretty big bug in Office XP.

I should probably have another update on the game before the weekend, so just keep in mind this probably isn't the final format.

I'm working on a 3d Game of Life simulator, which I'm turning into an FPS-style puzzle game.

I never finished FF9 (defective second disc, never bothered to replace it) but that happens in FF8.

And if you're going to get one game, get FFTactics.

I'm working on one in FB/OpenGL, it needs a lot of work but it does work for now. You'd probably need to mess with the file format to get it to work for whatever you want to do. http://www.lggaming.com/downloads/mapedit.png It's in no condition to upload right now (extremely easy to crash your syste...

Eh, don't feel like typing all of that again. See FBTK post. Or just Download it and don't read about the changes.

I might have another game done by then. The network code is giving me hell though, and I need to find someone to run a dedicated server.

The best way to wrap your head around it is to think of it just as the projection of dimensions. Start with a point (0d) - project this into a line(a bunch of points "stacked up"). A bunch of lines stacked up will make the square. Stack squares for the cube. Now the hypercube is just a stacking of c...

The POINT command returns the color of a point on the screen. So basically if you've got a black background, you could see if the color of the point in front of the ball is black or not, and if not, then bounce the ball. (You need to check in front of the ball and not actually AT the ball because ch...

Concentrate on the first few parts and release it across two or three issues, then. Multiissue tutorials are nothing new, and the format does work.

Well, the easy check for divisibility is:

Code: Select all

if number MOD divisor = 0 then 'number is divisible


But it only works on integers. (But there's not really a clear definition of divisibility for non-integers anyway.)

Couldn't you check to see if certain files are in certain places? A bit of a workaround, but it could work.
