LOL, that's the one.

Once made a prototype of a 'gladiator' game using warcraft II footmen graphics. Around 8 of them appeared on the screen and I couldn't help but sing 'footy footy footy...' while playing.

I think all video games are art. I've finished a game and am now putting the spit-shine on a second (hopefully finished tomorrow, with a website within a week), and even if you ignore the code, most of the game is art. Even basic graphics and music (DAMNED MUSIC) take ages to get right. I'd say only...

I don't think it is possible, but if you have a usb end that you don't need, it might be worth trying anyway :D

I think ALT-ENTER should change it back to/from windowed mode.

If not, the programmers have some reason for not wanting you to do it: it is probably impossible to play windowed.

Gotta be gandalf.
A demi-god with amazing (and subtle) magic powers. Always having to repress his powers around the common folk, but being a super immortal when noone is around: an ambasador to all people of the world, and a mandate to act however you wish to preserve peace.

hehe, well said I agree it is really obvious when they do the same experiment, and brainiac calls it 'the first time tested' or they say they now have 'indisputable proof'. The Duck's echo was what did it for me: Mythbusters captured every possible situation, explained how the myth is reasonable (th...

Darned right you're getting screwed!

I don't know if TPG is just an Adelaide thing, but we get $50 256k connection with a 20gb download limit, which if exceeded becomes 56k (no fees if we go way over).

The first one sounds sort of like 'One Must Fall': a beat-em-up game with heaps of customisation.

Definitely C, with the option of going to C++.

The language makes sense (should be easy as a first language), has heaps of add-on libraries (such as Allegro) for graphics, sounds, keyboards etc. and is among the fastest of languages.

$300 an hour is an offer made by someone who probably has no idea how hard it is to make a game.

I made a game, available at www.pyrogame.com
it is relatively simple, but took 6 months to make working an average of 2-3 hours a day. At that price, I'd have made $135,000.

I thought it was really bad: there were really only 2 bits that stood out, the fight with the 3 dinos and him swatting at the airplanes. There were other scenes that looked good, it's just that they weren't memorable and usually had no purpose (like you say, with the bats or the stampede). It just s...

I think removing guests is good: it won't deter all of them, but it does remove a little of the anonymity, and makes it harder for bots and the like. I think making people register will only improve the number of members here for the long term. There are a few forums I have joined just to ask a ques...
