In Topic: The programmer's personal journey and changing tastes

19 March 2015 - 01:52 PM

I've been programming in one language or other, since the 1970s. I'm still in the "let's make stuff" stage. That includes making the tools to do whatever that "stuff" is - image editor, animation editor, etc. I've "finished" just a dozen games and simulations over the years. For me personally, it's all about learning and, because I switch APIs every few years, there's no end to the opportunities to find out "How can I do that in [fill in your API]?"

This pretty much covers me as well. Including the 1970s ;-)

In Topic: What IDEs are recommended for Lua and/or Python?

I use PyCharm Community Edition for python.

In Topic: Is there an open source 'smart' TCP load balancer?

06 March 2015 - 08:59 PM

Zen Load Balancer (Community Edition) (I've not used it)


I don't know of anything that supports the special scenario your describe though. We usually just disable a set of servers in the LB configuration, wait for those servers to go idle and then shut them down manually.

In Topic: Directx11 Sprite class

Unless you're set on implementing your own sprite API, I would recommend the SpriteBatch class in the DirectX Tool Kit.

Sorry, but Unity is not my area of expertise. You might try asking/searching on the Unity Forums.
