Topics I've Started

C/C++ Refresher

08 July 2013 - 05:17 PM

I've been away from C/C++ programming for quite some time now, been doing a lot of work in Java (mostly making games) but I have made games in C in the past using SDL so it's not like I am learning a new language but I feel like if I just dove right back into it I would struggle. What would be the best way to get a quick refresher in C/C++ because I would like to start getting into some Windows API programming now. I looked up some C/C++ tutorials but they all start with very basics such as what a variable is etc. I would just like to get familiar with the syntax and language specifics quickly. What would be the best way to get started developing as fast as possible? Thanks!

My very first android game: Impossible game

Very original name.. I know.... I have just published my very first android game and very first published game as well! It isn't much but I am proud of it. You can download it here. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!

Java System Tray Popup

23 May 2013 - 10:17 PM

Is it possible to create a java popup without a windows bar without the close, minimise buttons etc?
I would like to create a java app that runs in the background but when certain conditions are met it will create a popup but I don't want a window but instead a small popup I can design. Any classes that Java provides to get me started would really help.



Ordering strings

28 April 2013 - 03:15 PM

I have a method which loads data from a Student object. I would like to be able to get a string from that method which holds the data the student class contains.

	public static String getData(String order) throws IOException{
                //create string array for each type of data student object can hold
		String[] firstNames = new String[numberOfStudents];
		String[] lastNames = new String[numberOfStudents];
		String[] grade = new String[numberOfStudents];
		String[] age = new String[numberOfStudents];
		String[] email = new String[numberOfStudents];
		for(int i = 0; i < numberOfStudents; i++){
                        //get data from each student object
			firstNames[i] = readFirstName(studentArray[i]);
			lastNames[i] = readLastName(studentArray[i]);
			grade[i] = readGrade(studentArray[i]);
			age[i] = readAge(studentArray[i]);
			email[i] = readEmail(studentArray[i]);
		//HERE i would like to be able to order by first name or last name but i                //would like to keep the last name and grades with its own first name
		if(order == "FIRST_NAME"){
		return "NULL";


I hope I am being clear for what I am trying to achieve. It may be difficult to understand from just looking  at this method.



Calculating normal force

14 April 2013 - 12:45 PM

I hope it is okay to ask physics questions unrelated to games but I am really struggling with this question. Please help me understand how to go about doing this.


A sled of mass 26kg has an 18kg child on it. If big brother is pulling with a force 30N to the right and 10N up while big sister is pushing 40N right and 16N down, what is the normal force?
