In Topic: Need Motivation? Follow Your Dreams, and **** Everything Else

05 February 2012 - 03:19 PM

This has nothing to do with Game Design. Welcome to the Lounge.


I figured it would be moved but I had no idea where to put it at the time since it was 2am and my brain barely had enough energy to post what I did. And yeah Zeenbor would have found a way but a sketchy experience like this always sounds like the funnest and rewarding way to learn, especially when you can get away with it the way he did =p

This is similar to jumping off a cliff. If high enough, you will kill yourself. Ignore such facts at your own peril.

When listening to motivational success stories always keep in mind that everyone celebrates winners, but losers vanish never to be seen again. Combining survivor bias with cargo cult, especially when it involves brands with global reach can be dangerous. Same for laws, ignorance is not an excuse.

Following your dreams is fine. But there is a difference between procrastination and recklessness.


Yes I agree with you; there are smarter more productive ways of doing what he did, but that's really beside the point. Nowhere am I suggesting that one should ignore the laws and do what he pleases, and nowhere am I suggesting that one be juvenile on their dream path. What I am suggesting is that one simply finds a direction and keeps moving forward, taking on the challenges and demands that come their way. I believe that anyone capable of creating a game is also capable of reading all the material on my original post completely; that alone should help them understand what happens when you reference or use copyrighted work with your own.

In Topic: C# Compiler Error

What I'm doing is:

File > New > Project > Empty Project ... (oh lol)


Hm. So my problem was probably that I wasn't using the Solution Explorer to properly ad the .cs file. XD Are there other ways of properly adding 'items' to the project?

T_T Maybe I should just go back to learning C++ then. The only thing I can imagine doing with C# is using XNA, unless somebody else wants to take a crack at my error.



Compiler errors should never be a reason to switch languages.

Perhaps this Stackoverflow thread can help?


Nah. His program is less basic than mine. I don't have a GUI, and when I went into the options to see if I could change the Startup object, there were no options on the drop down menu.

And im totally kidding when I say I'm gonna give up for 1 stupid error. XD

Nope. Still not working, and it's giving the same error.
