In Topic: Having trouble with a game im trying to work on

MediaFire tries to tell me my browser is old and I should “upgrade” to the one of their choice—a scare tactic I morally appose—and I will not view the file there.

Why don’t you just post the code here if it is not too long? If it is definitely above line 78, why not post the first 78 lines?

You don't use adblock do you?


Anyway, I agree with posting it on pastebin.

In Topic: c++ class vs struct+functions

I'm quite interested in this 2k function class too...

In Topic: 1 language to rule them all?

I believe a language is not a tool itself, but a tool kit. Paradigms, algorithms, patterns, these are the tools within the tool kit that is the language.


Because of this, the statement above about the red screw driver,  is not really valid in my opinion. Someone who uses only one language can definitely be more than adequate for the majority of teams. What matters are the tools available in his tool kit with that language.

In Topic: C++ Games?

Developers are NEVER told to use a language even in the largest companies, if a team wants to write things in Basic, the company/marketing folks won't give a damn so long as you produce a game.  


This I have to disagree with on many levels.


First the decision can come from above...  in the form of "We got a licensing deal/promo offer/something else to use this piece of middleware...  get to work!"  In this day and age, the underlying engine dictates the language choice more than anything else.


Next, for companies not using an engine, its generally because they are working with legacy code.  This generally forces the language on the dev team, and is probably a good part of the reason C++ remains as entrenched as it is.


Finally, its generally one or two people in the company that make the language decision...  after that lowly peons put up or get out.  It's the way of the world.



Thank you, I was actually wondering when someone would say this after he posted that.
