In Topic: Engine Development - Breath-First or Depth-First?

What others have  said.


And notice that most of current 'go to' game engine are historically build for games (Unity, Unreal) and not build for engine sake.

After 7 years (or something), I started back hobby programming. I'm writing a dba tools that generate text into clipboard so that right clicking on a putty window will paste it. This is because in 90% of cases, i can only communicate with the db via putty. I'm using PureBasic.

i heard the dev of sublime is not responding and people are freaking out a bit. I like it but maybe not the best option for the future. It is closed source after all.


I'm yet to test sublime, but its future doesn't looks nice

Do you guys have a concrete source for these rumors?


Because most of the rumors seem to pre-date the last official word on the matter (this message from the developer).



I can't comment on the rumours, but I've read that developer posting. I don't do one-guy-closed source application.  He can say that his life are full of flowers. But I don't buy it. That is my personal opinion on the matter. Maybe once he hire more developers I can treat the software more seriously.

Anyone knows of any text editor that is programmable using popular language such as python (instead of esoteric one), preferably open source, that can handle large files. up to 1 gb.


almost ALL text editor I've test choked up (as in crashed), or admitted it (Notepad++, saying the file too big), or just plain limited (atom.io currently support up to 2 MB file only).


The only "Text editor" that can open a 6xx mb text file is Microsoft Visual Studio community edition (thanks Microsoft). But macro programming is either limited via VBA, or I have to use Visual Basic or Visual C++ to write plug-ins for it.


I'm yet to test sublime, but its future doesn't looks nice, although it uses python as scripting language.

In Topic: What can we do to help remove the industry misconception?

And as for the feminists who are calling for removal of sexualized women in games, I think they are in the wrong. The games represent a fantasy world. In this case, a fantasy world aimed for teenage boys and young men. That's what they want.  Women want the harlequin romances, the romantic TV dramas, the philanthropic billionare who support women in their crusades against the world. That's the equivalent.  But even in those romance TV shows my wife has me watch, yes, the women are strong characters in their fantasy lands yet often they do what they want all day while their men go to work to pay the bills. Either that or the men appear as handsome, wealthy props in the female fantasy.


I freaking hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate to keep hearing that.


Did I copy paste enough of the word hate? The thing is, boys and young men can manage fine with robots or aliens.






In my opinion, Lara Croft, as played by Angelina Jolie in the original Tomb Raider movies, was a fairly good action hero. Modern! Smart, fearless, physically and mentally strong, with a career and a libido. Too often, strong women in TV and movies are rendered sexless. They're either buttoned-up business ladies, stoic workaholic cops, or girls under the age of 18. Lara Croft was definitely a grown-up. Her enormous breasts and short-shorts may not have been essential to the story, but I liked that she was unabashedly sexy while kicking ass. Some of my favorite action heroines are tinged with sensuality. Pam Grier was bikini-clad while wielding a gun in blaxploitation film Coffy. Faith on Buffy fought vampires in tight vinyl pants.



Italics and bold are mine. This is a case of having cake and eating it too, by blaming teenage boys for it. Maybe games should just remove all female in games with robot / alien and call it a day. Maybe we can hear who would scream loudest, teenage boys or feminist themselves.
