Re: The Crown of Alegare

A little update. I am going through and defining the base skill sets for the monsters. There are over 300 monsters so this is going to take a bit of work. Instead of hard-coding the attributes though, I am going to set these up as a data file in text format so that it will be easy to update and/or m...

Re: The Crown of Alegare

Thanks Lachie. It shouldn't be too long before I have a little alpha test to play with. I am going to release early and release often with this so as to get some testing in while I work on it.

Re: The Crown of Alegare

Thanks. I said in the first post that this was a sequel; actually it is more like DDD 2.0 since it will follow the same general idea as DDD. Find the orbs and crown to win. It will be much more extensive though. I have a good idea of what I want to do, and I'll get more into the details once I get t...

I'll be posting pics at my Imgur account . I have an album set up for it and will be updating the album as I get things complet...

Re: RL Dungeon Generation

Rick, I love this algorithm! It's fast and you can adjust it in just the right way to make cavernous / themed dungeons easily. Thank you. It seems to work well for me. I see that my tutorial page on this on my FB site is all messed up. I'll have to fix that and repost it on the site. 1.) I want to ...

Re: no longed confused

remember kids, allocate isnt always your friend! if you use it, set child pointers to 0! The solution of course was posted in Callocate. But here is what is happening when you use Allocate (which is just a alias fir the C Malloc function). When you allocate a block of memory you are just reserving ...

Using the MK* and CV* Functions

For my current project I am building a variable length data file. I am using the MK and CV functions to create the fields lengths in the data file, and I thought an example of the process might be helpful for those who need to do the same. The MK and CV functions are often overlooked, but are very u...

Re: [bug] -exx decreasing bitfield

The word 'data' is too many! (Only integer types are allowed within a bit field.) I think that it should be more clear to write: Only integer types (numeric types excluding floating-point types: single and double) are allowed within a bit field. If rdc agree, I can do the change. No problem on my e...

Re: Reading a Windows format ".ini" file

I wrote one of these a while ago for my own needs. You can take a look here . Even though the file type is deprecated in Windows, I like to use the format for my own programs. It is simple, yet expressive, and makes a nice little database for things like options and such. It also has the advantage (...

Re: like function

Garvan is using the soundex function which uses a phonetic algorithm to match words that "sound" alike. I used it a lot when writing client-server applications back when I programmed for a living.
