I'm Getting Sick of The Same Posts Over and Over

27 July 2014 - 07:21 AM

I left this forum for a few months recently. Here's why:

  • People listing their idea and then asking a couple (shoehorned in) vague questions like "What programming language should I use?"
  • People trying to "recruit" team members. "I'll pay you once it's done. It's totally going to be a hit."

This has got to be at least half of the posts in the For Beginners section (the most commonly trafficked part of this forum). I'm in this cycle of leaving this forum for a few months, coming back (because of the great long-term community), and then leaving again because this seems to be all I can really find. Just listing ideas and asking something like "What programming language should I use?" should be banned. It's been asked many times before, the forum isn't for simply listing ideas (there's a whole other forum for that), and there's been many, many posts written (which all come to the same conclusions) answering the Programming Language question. It's a waste of people's time which could be used, you know, answering real questions.


The whole recruiting team members, stealing game ideas, blah blah blah questions should be banned. If people can't use the search function, we shouldn't all have to deal with their question.


The main problem is these people listing ideas, and then saying "Yeah, I can't program at all. How do I make this?" It's just so annoying to see this post over, and over, and over, and over again.




For clarification, I don't want to ban the users who ask these. I want to ban the posts. I think the moderators should delete posts like these and direct them to the FAQ or some of the other times their exact question has been asked.

Vim Editor?

26 July 2014 - 01:55 PM

I use Vim when editing code. It's been my favorite editor for a while. Anyone else here use Vim for game programming?


(Also, shameless plug): I made a crowdfunded Vim t-shirt (because I was fed up with all the overly-complicated, super-expensive t-shirts I found online). It needs to sell fifty units for any shirts to be shipped. If any of you guys like Vim, this is your only chance to ge ta simple, no-nonsense, cheap Vim shirt.

I love py2exe :)!

My first real product is being released in the next month (check pytext once a week, it will be online very very soon :0!).


I've been struggling with converting my .py files to .exe.


Then I came across py2exe! And in five minutes, my conversion was done smile.png!


I highly recommend them!


Cheers smile.png!


(Just trying to help others who are trying to distribute their python programs without making their users install python!)

Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock!

Try it out :)!


For the current college course I'm taking (An introduction to interactive programming in Python), our first real mini-project was to make Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock in Python. And I'm really happy with how mine turned out :)!


You can find the course on CourseRA!


Cheers :)!

Can't sign in on chrome.

09 April 2013 - 06:17 PM

On the chrome browser, I can't sign into my account. More correctly, I'll load up gamedev, go onto the sign in page, enter my (definitely correct, you'll see how I know later) credentials, and then when I click submit I'll be brought back to the main page, without being signed in. I'm writing this on Firefox (what I use for web development), and I am hoping that this is fixed. Thanks smile.png!
