Interesting. I got a pretty consistent 40fps running through Wine...fast enough to make a playable game with, at least.

You are conflating Unix and Linux, me thinks, and never the twain shall meet. I do not use Linux, I use Unix. Berkeley Unix , to be precise. Linux isn't even remotely close to POSIX so therefore is hard to call Unix at all. Also, don't forget that PHP, HTML, etc. are scripts designed to run in majo...

The browser paradigm as you describe is only in the Windows world, where nothing is thought of scripting hell because computers are so fast and so powerful today that they can afford the wasted cycles on terribly slow interpreters. And since people are generally complacent and lazy, they don't notic...

This thread is again reminding me of why I stopped upgrading FB at 0.16. Too many things change and point towards OOP, which is never what I wanted to see. Not all of us like OOP or even see its so-called usefulness. So yeah...y'all enjoy this fruitless debate; I'm going back to procedural land wher...

Lua is pretty decent but not really suited for high-performance apps IMHUO. Tis great for traditional RPGs though...Ruby makes a good candidate for that too (RPGXP anyone?). cha0s, I don't really see anyone being out of line here. I just don't think jcfuller and aurelVZAB understand the purpose of e...

Using a scripting language is great for some kinds of game development, provided the scripting language doesn't suck.

I can see the uses of this, but comparing FB to MSO is like comparing a screwdriver to a laundry basket.

Not everything is accomplished in a day...or a week...or a month...or even a year. Patience is a virtue. People have lives outside of the internet, and sometimes real life issues have to take priority no matter how long it takes.

It was just a common "You got RickRolled". I always seem to fall for them and I always laugh when I do. It helps lighten the mood sometimes. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rickrolling Someone I know online posted a "beta" version of Pokemon Platinum on one of those ROM-sharing sites before the game w...

Not too shabby for a first attempt. Are you using floating point or integer (fixed point) math?

Any sorting algorithm is worth looking at, of course. But not all sorting algorithms are designed for all purposes. There seems to be several implementations for snakesort ranging from a modified bubblesort to a mergesort. Using a 30 million item data source with a quicksort is nothing short of suic...

C++ is fully 100% portable; I foresee no problems in that area.. seriously, these are important questions to ask, but I do not think the challenges they imply are insurmountable. You were going good until this line. C++ is NOT 100% fully portable; every vendor makes sure to put in their own two cen...
