Almost two years ago, I made this topic: http://www.gamedev.net/topic/630293-these-computers-dont-make-sense/page-2


Since I've learned alot more about computers, I thought I'd return to this.


What a fool I am.


It turns out the ONLY single component better on the first computer, is the graphics card.


Let me go into higher detail this time:


computer 1#:

Windows XP


Low-end Pentium 4 with no HT

integrated Sound Max card

Radeon x300 128 MB



computer 2#:

Windows Vista


AMD Athlon dual-core 5600

7.1 audio card

Nvidia Geforce 6150SE 64 MB



Its just a mind-fuck, that a 4 years older computer has a better graphics card.


I am worthy of any name-calling over my stupidity in my previous thread.



What is the ratio here?

Over this year, I've completely lost interest in PC gaming and developing for PCs. I've returned to consoles.


Regardless of that, I've remained interested in game development.


So I wonder, how many of you develop for consoles? seems this site is kinda dedicated towards developing for PCs, but I can't be sure. This site is great, but as I've transitioned to consoles, I don't want to be the lone one here.


Currently learning the PS Vita SDK, to get ready for the Vita TV.



Did you hear the news?

That forum poster has some serious skills with predicting the future.

I am currently working on a Python game project. I want to test it on a computer without Python installed, as it should work without needing a Python installation.


My 7 and Vista computers both have multiple Python versions installed, so running the project on those doesn't give me a straight answer of if its Python dependent.


If anyone Pythonless, has the time to download the folder, un-zip it, then run main.exe:https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8yyQQd93Xz6NTNGS2VYTEdNVVE/edit


You should see a small 20x20 tile in front of a brown background.

Once you go OO, you never go back?

19 December 2012 - 08:59 AM

I was scared to jump into object oriented programming, and avoided it for months when I first began programming. But once I began programming in an OO way, I never wanted to go back to the old days of declaring variables and functions outside of classes.

I guess my questions are:
-Is this average?
-Are there any modern games, that aren't programmed in an OO way?
