In Topic: Moving from plain "ascii" to XML?

Another option is convert to binary before the game loads anything. The game isn't a human; your files don't need to be human-readable at that point.

In Topic: C++ - win32: can i change the menu font?

if(SendMessage(...) != WM_SETFONT)

...I'm not sure what you're trying to compare there.


"The return value specifies the result of the message processing; it depends on the message sent."


"This message does not return a value."

As for why it's not working, I can't remember whether menus do this or not, but forms are frequently composed of several nested HWNDs, each with its own settings. You may want to see if the menu itself has an HWND, whether the menu items inside it have HWNDs, etc. It's been ages since I've messed with Win32 so I don't remember if you're even allowed to change the font or not.

In Topic: Dual wielding for single handed missile weapons?

I'd probably disallow things that would be exceedingly difficult to perform in real life. I can't really imagine dual-wielding atlatls effectively. Readying an atlatl spear one-handed would be tricky and probably defeat the advantage of being able to throw one spear from each arm in rapid succession.

For things like knives, it would be more managable, but the thrower needs practice throwing with both arms. I'm right-arm focused myself and I doubt I'd have any proficiency throwing with my left arm unless I practiced a lot.

If you connected the two stations with a long tube, any one foolish enough to travel along it would experience more and more G force, then they would pass out and die unless saved.

Forces on a person in such a tube would diminish the closer they get to the center of rotation. You don't explode if you spin in your chair, do you?
