Anyone here from North Europe (Sweden, Norway, Denmark) ?

13 February 2013 - 10:28 AM

Hi guys,

 

I was just wondering if this is true, it's circulating around in several emails, it's about politicians.

 

1. Deputy's goto work in bycicles.

2. Deputy's do not have a car supplied by the state, and no driver.

3. Deputy's have a very very small house supplied by the state (20/40 square metters).

4. In the 90's, there wasn't even a house supplied by the state, so they had a couch in their office and that's where they sleep

5. In Sweden, the prime minister has a very small house, and no employers at all.

 

Basically, no luxurious provided by the tax payers go tot he politician class.

Can someone that know if this is true, comment ?

I think there's a lot of miss-information going around, but well, I may be wrong.

 

Thanks,


Real Time Tactics game design

04 September 2012 - 03:05 PM

Hey everyone,


I was hoping to start a discussion regarding game design on Real Time Tactics games.
By Real Tactics, I mean games like Men of war or Dawn of War 2 where the focus of the game is not base building or resource gathering, but more the combat tactics around it.
Now, these games have one thing in common.
Terrain is important, terrain can give the units defensive bonus, penalties, soldiers can get inside buildings (again for extra cover).
Units usually aren't built with resources that you harvest with units, instead the player can capture control points, and they generate points , and these points gives the player the ability to build more units, or add units to the squads.
I think RTT games are kind of an evolution from RTS games, they exist because people were getting tired of the gameplay mechanics behind RTS games.
I have been thinking where can we go next after RTT games, but I can't figure out a gameplay mechanic that would be refreshing to the RTT space.
So, what would you guys like to see in a RTT game? Either stuff that's been done before or new features?

From what I was able to find out, last Saturday the protest had 50.000 people in there.
There's no news on European TV's about this, and as far as I know there's nothing in American TV's either.
Is there people here from New York that can confirm that this is actually happening ?

finding Publishers

16 November 2010 - 07:09 AM

Hi everyone,

I'm tryng to find a list of publishers, not casuals, not top AAA games, but let's say middle games.
I'm having a hard time finding this., so far I have this small list :

-Focus Interactive
-Stardock
-Paradox Entertainment
-Jowood
-EncoreUSA

-Strategy First (not sure about this one, lots of problems with Strategy First going bankrupt to avoid paying developers)

Anyone could suggest any others ?
Thanks,
Bruno

Minimized Window won't wake up

31 August 2010 - 10:12 AM

Hey everyone,

Is there a way to find is a application is locked in the taskbar somehow ?
I'm going to try to give some history on what is happening.
I'm developing a game with TGB (Torque Game Builder), and the game when changing resolution from full screen to window mode, has this weird problem that it gets locked in the taskbar and nothing happens, i'm unable to maximize it anymore.
This only happens in one machine using a a X2300 ATI MOBILITY.
I'm not expecting anyone here to know the ins and outs of torque, hell, even in the torque forums they don't.
This is a longshot, but I was hoping for some kind of idea, on what to do, if there's some way to detect that this situation is happening, so i can prevent somehow the change from fullscreen to window mode.

thanks,
Bruno
