In Topic: Zynga

01 February 2014 - 11:10 PM


What bothers me is I was talking to Zynga Orlando, that is looking to staff up to like 100 people asap. WTF is up with this company? Why don't they use existing resources, why do they buy companies and dump them.

Business is interesting.




Sounds to me like a heck of a lot of mismanagement.

In Topic: C++ macro return? (converting C++ macro to C# code)

23 January 2014 - 08:44 PM

Awesome guys.  Many thanks on the uber-quick reply.  Also, frob, good catch on my mistake there.  Thinking about it, it now makes sense that the macro isn't returning anything, but is calling return in the code where it is being used.  I also agree that this is a pretty not-nice use of a macro.  

I haven't seen too many other samples out there that use the separating axis theorem for AABB-triangle detection.  The only other sample I've seen had issues as well.  

Again, thanks a bunch you guys.  

(I feel like it's been quite a while since I've been around here, and I'm glad to see the community is still alive and kicking, like back in the good ol' days.)

In Topic: Gamedev has shown me how I've grown

I hate to think what my first few posts on here look like.  That being said, I've learned a lot.  I'm also not terribly active in game development now.  I've got more than enough keeping me busy.  I do like keeping my feelers out for things.  Perhaps some day I'll actually make a video game (something better than kraken-smack, my contest entry I did a year and a half ago).

Chalk up another vote for TortoisHG and for SourceTree.  Both are pretty decent.

In Topic: Windows 8

30 December 2013 - 12:04 PM

For me, it's the metro style apps that make it worse than Windows 7 on a desktop.  For something like a touchscreen laptop or tablet, it's fine, but for a multiple monitor desktop, the default-take-the-whole-screen metro style apps just don't make sense.  The new task manager is nice.  The revised file transfer dialog is also nice, but seems to have some superfluous bits.  What's the point of the horizontal line when all I really want to see is the current transfer speed, what is being copied (and where it is being copied from and to), and the historical transfer speeds.  It just seems like they could have done a better job if it.  I've also managed to break it on one occasion, as it kept showing a cancelled transfer, and it wouldn't go away no matter what I did.


Also, I realize there are performance reasons for it, but shipping the OS with thumbnail images disabled is also a bad idea.  What's the point in having a large icon size if they still all look the same?
