2 megs of video memory won't even hold a 1024x768 framebuffer. I seriously doubt it only has 2 megs with a CPU that fast. My first pc had 2 megs of VRAM... in 1997 or so.

In Topic: SFML IntRect::Offset Confusion

01 November 2010 - 07:58 AM

Offset is not a static function. It's a member function. It would make no sense at all as a static function.


I know that you can't call a static anything from a non-static anything

You can. Static member functions are just functions that are part of the class, but not part of any objects. They're still in the same namespace as the member functions, but obviously don't have access to any member variables or functions. You can still call static member functions from a member function.


Would it even be appropriate to declare my sprite object as static

Probably not. If you had more than one animation, they'd be fighting over the same IntRect instance.


Is IntRect::Offset just a method, or is it a distinct object?

It's just a member function. You use it like this.

sf::IntRect i;
i.Offset(10, 10);

Most people will ignore you if you have nothing to show. There are tons of "I'm making this super-awesome game!" people out there that have nothing to show, and will never have anything to show because the give up once they realize it takes a lot of work. So you're probably not going to get anyone interested unless you something to show. Or money.

The second level looks a lot better, especially if there's movement and parallax scrolling as you're fighting over the train cars. The first level wasn't great. As I commented on your youtube channel, it's just kind of flat. It could really use a backdrop and some color. But keep going, I'd love to see the second level in action.

You're probably going to get sued, or at least get a nasty letter from the NBC lawyers. It needs to have (at the very least) a different name, a different logo (it can't look just like the Deal or No Deal logo, even if it's a different name), different overall look and feel, different names for things, etc. They can't stop you from making a clone, but a clone masquerading as the original is another story.
