In Topic: Moving from plain "ascii" to XML?

Yesterday, 01:15 PM

I'm planning to move from reading ascii/ plain text from files, to XML.
I'm trying to keep things simple,


You have simple.  Moving to XML buys you what exactly?  Bloated and less readable data files?  Slower parsing?  Dependencies on third party XML parsers?

In Topic: Looking for feedback on my game engine

In my experience this type of top-down design is a very ineffective way to build a game engine.  A far better approach is to start with a complete game (no matter how horrible its code) and refactor it in a series of incremental steps (where each step is a functional game) with the goal of separating the code into game and engine components.  Now you have a working game engine and some understanding of the actual problems you'll need to solve to make that engine better.

Looks like the top row of vertices has bad positions.  It's getting clipped in the first screenshot, so it doesn't show.  My guess is the bad positions come from bad indices and the bad indices come from an off-by-one error when generating indices (probably on the loop bounds).

On one line of the page they talk about how you may already have one even if you haven't done paperwork yet


That was my only point.  No formal action is required to form a sole proprietorship.  There is no paperwork to file to make it happen.
