In Topic: Text and ECS (Entity Component System) architecture questions

13 August 2014 - 05:26 PM

The downside is that you'll have to find someway to have different UI-components communicate with each other.


Components should already be able to communicate with other components.


I actually think the HUD can easily be made with ECS and even fit with your old way of doing things, you should already have an image component and image render component a UI is just behaviors with those so: a clickable component and system that sends a message to all components in the entity when  entered, exited, mouse up, mouse down then a uicomponent with it's system that ties together multiple components in the same group (Like radio buttons).

In Topic: Game Maker 3D - I need your feedback

I only had a quick mess around, but it looks awesome!


Have you seen https://playcanvas.com/? It's open source and written in JS+WebGL rather than Flash though. What went into your decision to choose Flash? Do you have some dev blog where I can see your progress and read about issues you encountered? Are you just one person or do you have a team(Are you apart of Away3D)? What is your goal for your project?


I will have to look into it further as I don't have time to delve deeper.

In Topic: QT vs. wxWidgets for OpenGL

12 August 2014 - 06:34 AM

- vxWidgets has one major design flaw: it supports no delegates. Which means: for every GUI object you create, you have to define a new class. Not an instance. A new class.

So if you have 3 buttons, you have to define 3 classes to handle their messages (class button1 : wxObject, class button 2 : wxObject etc...)


Just to clarify what the above poster said, the above 'design flaw' is false.

In Topic: Funniest line of code ever ?

This whole fizz buzz implementation is hilarious.

In Topic: "unofficial" programmer rant thread

04 August 2014 - 10:03 PM

Here is my rant:


'modern' Web Development is the fucking worst.


C#.net, JQuery, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, Node.js, SQL, Pig, PHP, Ajax, Java


Then you have:


Bootstrap, Semantic UI + many others.


Followed by browsers (Or platforms):


FireFox, Chrome, IE, Opera, Safari + forks of those + CLI ones + Lots of additional mobile ones and lots of random not so popular ones


It's fucking bullshit and I hate it.
