Topics I've Started

Pokemon ... Yu-Gi-Oh ... What's the best trading card battle game?

I've been thinking about trying out one of these card games. Are there any simple enough for elementary children to pick up?

Problem building cURL app -- Help!

07 November 2010 - 04:37 AM

While this isn't a huge game programming area, perhaps some of you have run into cURL issues.

I'm using Microsoft Visual C trying to build a pretty simple test app which relies on the cURL library, and the linker acts like a missing zlib library is preventing the build from completing. Specifically the error is:


1>------ Build started: Project: TestCurl, Configuration: Release Win32 ------
1>Linking...
1>libcurl.lib(content_encoding.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _inflateEnd
1>libcurl.lib(content_encoding.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _inflateInit2_
1>libcurl.lib(content_encoding.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _inflate
1>libcurl.lib(content_encoding.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _inflateInit_
1>libcurl.lib(content_encoding.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _zlibVersion
1>c:\proj\TestCurl.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 5 unresolved externals




It gives me the same errors both with and without the zlib.lib file (that I built from version 1.2.5) setup in my "Additional Dependencies" list.

Any clues would be greatly appreciated, guys. Alternatively, advice on possibly what I could do to use any dynamic libraries would be useful, as well. Thanks!

Karaoke Show-stoppers!

The GD lounge seems to be large enough crowd to mine for a few names of upbeat songs that you guys think might get people moving (in a good way!) A few that seem to get a good response are: Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi, Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard, Beat It - Michael Jackson, Baby Got Back - Sir Mix A Lot, I Know You Want Me - Pitbull. Got another good one? Post it up!

Did "1984" have the wrong bad guy?

08 December 2009 - 07:51 PM

The thread offering Google Wave invites inexorably brought me back to a long-running idea of mine. It's basically how a dystopian future of nearly-zero privacy could look a lot like George Orwell's 1984, except in one huge respect -- it wouldn't be the government that we'd be unable to keep from using details of our lives, but rather large corporations (whom I've termed "little brother"). A quick list of our biggest information leaks today might include: credit cards, consumer credit agency data, grocery store discount cards, Google searches, Gmail, YouTube favorites, Facebook profiles, CDDB queries, cell phone signals, BitTorrent seeds, OnStar service, and actually any general web browsing done at home. Just looking at the list above indicates that the data from just four companies alone would paint a pretty accurate picture of my life; those four being Visa, Google, my cell phone network, and my home ISP. And, of course, Google is especially unabashed about their desire to datamine your personalized information for profiling purposes. Nonetheless, I generally embrace all of the technologies in the list above, even if there is a tiny nagging Luddite somewhere in the recesses of my mind... But anyways, I'm not saying that I believe any of us will ever see some nightmare world, a lá some of the interesting works of paranoid fiction ( 1 2 3 etc), though I do suspect that quality of life is more likely to be reduced than improved by corporations as they learn to utilize these mountains of data more invasively. I'd fully expect insanity as portrayed in this film clip to be the start of the really annoying developments: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBaiKsYUdvg I can't be the only privacy freak here ... but your thoughts?

Possibly the most ridiculous marriage ever

I don't even think that Ray Kurzweil saw this one coming..... Link here "Loser" doesn't even begin to cover it.
