Re: What is wrong with the BASIC language?

Dude, v8 is f*ing fast these days :) http://benchmarksgame.alioth.debian.org/u32/compare.php?lang=v8&lang2=gcc Considering most people are processing server-side js using v8 + node.js (which then hands execution off to async c++ modules), those benchmarks are not bad at all given everything Jav...

Re: What is wrong with the BASIC language?

Yeah, man. BASIC was great for game prototypes when tools to just make games appear out of thin air didn't exist. Now they do exist, and I feel a thorough evaluation of modern tools and education methods (specifically, human computer interaction) is needed to think more about how to "improve&q...

Re: WorldSim3D game engine for FreeBasic

Great that you are continuing Frank Dodd's work here. My most complex and (abandoned, so far) Freebasic game ( Merchants of Power ) is based on his Irrlicht wrapper. (I also had to recompile Irrlicht, but that's another story...) I think documentation is the most important thing. When you combine mo...

Re: How NSA backdoored Dual_EC_DRBG without weakening it

It's a fallacy. Of course it's not secure. If someone hacks the NSA and steals this "e", then what?

Re: Merchants of Power

Many thanks to dkl here... it is possible. I don't have the exact steps right now but generally -- First, I compiled (in a...

Re: circuit_chung free 3D road car racing game

Good progress, but... I notice your gui is always a really basic windows type thing and you have a very small amount of polys on most of your models, and no anti-alias. I think your games would be better if those things changed.
