Re: Tracking AI

I agree, as long as your algorithm is deterministic and doesn't have any random elements then unit testing is the way to go. With some frameworks you should be able to mock the random elements and preset their values. Most languages have test frameworks, I use CPPUnit for C++ and RSpec for Ruby stuff.

Re: Update on my game engine(bad news).

I really don't know what the critical problem is, but if it's enough to affect your entire codebase, it must be pretty bad. I usually work on the basis of coding a small chunk that works, then refactoring it out until it's relatively clean, structured and loosely coupled. Hopefully then if anything ...

Re: Tools Development

I think there is a growing market for cross-platform game tools. With games hitting so many platforms it can be quite a tedious task to keep abstracting code into platform agnostic chunks and then fitting them all back together. I always look for libraries and tools that take the leg-work out and en...

Re: Hi - greetings from United Kingdom (South Coast - England)!

It's good to see some more people from the South Coast turning up here :) I'm based just outside Southampton, in the New Forest. I'd be interested in discussing some collaboration or just meeting up for a chat. I'm a C/C++ and Objective-C developer, mainly doing iPhone development these days as well...

Re: You know your addicted...

Heh, that's a fun little app! I really like the graphic design on it! Thanks! The design was actually put together in about an hour. Its fairly simplistic right now, but I think thats a good thing. Okay, now I get it. Perhaps the "Show me another one," which is the fun part about the app,...

Re: You know your addicted...

We've updated the site over the weekend with a few updates, such as most popular, top tweeters. We should have comments working this week as well. I understand that one of our developers has almost implemented this now.

We have had a really positive response. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Re: 26" monitor

Funny you should mention that... I currently have my netbook hooked up to a 19" 4:3 lcd. I might just connect the 19" to my old laptop (a big bulky one), you know, so I won't lose the precious pixels either. Hey Arch, Which netbook do you have? I got an Aspire One a few months back. Very ...

You know your addicted...

So today I walk into the office and everybody is huddled around my bosses Mac with notepads in hand. A little strange for a Friday afternoon, I thought to myself. It wasn't long before I was informed that today we would be working on a web app, with only one day to complete it! The application is ca...

Re: A Tough Job

Thats pretty much the reason why I decided not to go into the Games industry. I got my degree in Computer Games Development and took a job in software development. Creating web apps and software applications is far less stressful and a lot better paid. Its just more enjoyable which is the main thing...

Re: Pre-Destined or Freewill

The way I have always looked at it, is in the following analogy... I can buy a plane ticket to New York. At this point I am pre-destined to go to New York, however I free-will to turn up to the airport or not. I know this is simple and could possibly be wrong. But thats how I have always seen it. A ...

Re: Ruby on Rails to get abandonded and replaced by PHP?

Scalability issues!? We have worked on a number of extremely high traffic and complex systems in Ruby on Rails without any problems. Sure, performance can be an issue, but we write all of the intensive stuff in C and hook it in. Most of our "rescue" projects are written in PHP. I honestly ...

Re: mono game dev?

From what I remember, you are likely to have to make a few adjustments in order to get it playing nicely with Mono. I would suggest grabbing a copy of MoMA (Mono Migration Analyzer), that should highlight most compatibility issues.
