Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Huh. I share a birthday with one of my top three pornstars. Neato.
    You were never this close to having birthday sex with a porn star.

    Yesterday you had a spaceship. And now you've fallen back to the Atari 2600.

    That was just to learn some basics. A platformer is what I want to make out of it.

    I'll steal some Minecraft textures or something later.

    Is it your birthday?

    No, not for a couple months. I looked at her Wiki. Man, Stoya's weird in all the sexy ways.

    Neat Echo...

    My friend has made this: http://www.herostatusapp.com/

    He submitted it to the Appstore, he is hoping to hear back soon on whether or not it's good to go. He plans on selling it for .99 :D

    I learnt this from my computer classes and highschool experiments with writing a game:

    It's really, really easy to make a game chew more CPU than it really should. You could recreate a Mario platformer in a way that brings your fancy overclocked P4 to its knees in seconds when (obviously) it doesn't need to.

    And then my interest in programming declined for unrelated reasons and I never got any better at it.

    Glad you decided to go. Let us know how it is?

    Also let me know the reaction when Shields destroys GSP.

    Tell her she's upsetting you and actually making you worse with the constant pressure and badgering, and that if she wants to help you the best thing to do is to leave you alone and let you try the new medication when it is time to do so.

    Sweep the leg, grasshopper.

    You know it'd be kind of neat if Shields wins. I don't think he will, but it'd be neat.

    Oh yes. I ranted a bit about that last night.

    It's basically discrete logic vs delta-time logic.

    Right now I'm using discrete logic only. The game runs at 60 updates per second, and I calculate movement as pixels per update. That's fine and dandy if you can maintain those 60 updates per second. But if it starts to dip below that, the game slows down accordingly.

    The other way is delta-time logic. Each update I check how many milliseconds it has been since the last update, and then calculate how long I should have moved since the last update. That ends up with some more work, but it's immune to update slowdowns.

    Right now I'm horribly inefficient and redraw the entire screen for every update. We'll see if I have to write a blitter so I only redraw parts that actually change.

    You should be the guy who writes the t.v. censored dialogue.
