In Topic: Judge Tells Apple to Publicly Apologize

20 July 2012 - 11:42 AM

It was about time somebody put Apple in its place.

- Nauseating secrecy.
- Unsatisfied Employees
- Objective C is one of the worst languages in creation.

Personally I think they are the #2 worst technology company today, #1 being Electronic Arts

In Topic: Player movement and changing rotation depending on the way they are facing

19 July 2012 - 09:03 AM

if angle > 0 && angle <= 180:
left rotates left, right rotates right

if angle > 90 && angle <= 270:
up rotates right down rotates left

if angle > 180 && angle <= 360:
left rotates right and right rotates left

if angle > 270 && angle <= 360 && angle <= 90:
down rotates right and up rotates left

Or you can use radians, several game engines use radians instead of degrees, that way there's consistency in the math language throughout the whole code.

edd's method is great, normally a while cycle is used.

I normally use

[source lang="cpp"]while (!file.eof()){ //DO THE READING HERE}[/source]

In Topic: JavaScript Games on Android Phones

18 July 2012 - 09:02 PM

I did a quick evaluation of using JavaScript + WebGL

Tell me, how's everything with WebGL? last I checked only a couple of browsers supported it, and IE refused to support it.

I was very interested some time ago on that particular technology, but forgot about it.

In Topic: What would the most expensive game be like?

18 July 2012 - 10:15 AM

I just want to see the return of the classic joystick/button controllers.

This new trend of motion detecting controllers it's just annoying, and no, I'm not lazy, I exercise several times a week. A videogame is to sit down and relax.

But what I would like to see in videogames, is the return of the screen on the controller, like the Sega Dreamcast, that right there would enhance the playing experience by a lot!

That's a sad story right there, the Dreamcast was a promising and revolutionary console, too bad Sega went bankrupt.
