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!

    man i have had no end of trouble trying to use stardock. it has sucked for at least seven years and probably more.

    the president posted in a thread here a while ago and even though he was a really conservative libertarianish guy it was interesting to hear from him.

    The guy was a big L "libertarian" of the worst sort. I would wager a great deal he has since become a teabagger.

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    that was the one where he was making a big deal out of some fox news-related counter-boycott or something, right?

    i thought he kind of came around later in the thread.

    And then things without fail get better.

    Why is it that nobody knows when to use 'diffuse' and when to use 'defuse'? Defuse means to disable, diffuse means to spread around (and often make ineffective). They're sometimes similar, but not interchangeable by any stretch of the imagination.

    Flash is a piece of shit.

    But it's still infinetly superior than trying to create a non-trivial application in Javascript.

    As long as HTML5 and the like are held back from entering the community of civilized programming languages by that bastard typeless script I will strongly support continued use of browser black-box solutions like Silverlight or Flash.

    html5/ajax/js means that flash isn't NEEDED at all any more for any of the stuff it does.

    Sadly, a bunch of big sites still use flash, and it has to be supported.

    I wonder if inline midi still works on websites.

    That is actually a lot of the reason. Well, not the awesome part but the phone part. I know people who used to work at Adobe. The Flash player has to be created from scratch for each platform it runs on and doing so (and supporting each version) costs Adobe a lot of cash.

    On a reasonable interpreter platform with some nice frameworks, Javascript is just dandy. Throw in HTML 5 canvas support and you've got something that can handily replace Flash 99% of the time with a fraction of the instability and overhead.

    Yes, I have developed for Javascript. The biggest pain is supporting IE.

    No, HTML5 still needs Flash or Silverlight or something to avoid the hell that is developing a non-trivial app in Javascript. I do not give a flying fuck how fancy the HTML5 DOM is or that it has an integrated video player or whatnot. If I have to use Javascript to create any substantial functionality it is still an utter failure.

    Also, Flash is only so widespread (in terms of adoption rate by end users) because Microsoft used Flash in the animated help they used in Windows, Works and Office until a few years ago. Flash 6 came pre-installed on Windows XP prior to SP1 and Flash 6 was the first version with an auto-upate feature.

    Also I like how I spent almost all of my money in STALKER on buying a SIG rifle and a decent supply of 5.56 mm ammo so I could stop using that shitty AN-94 (Which in reality isn't a bad rifle by any means, but this is a video game so common must equal bad) and then in the next area, literally the very next area, the first time I actually use the new rifle... All of the enemies are carrying M4 carbines.
