In Topic: making a program, all code in one file

Which are the advantages of a giant single room apartment over a more traditional one? Sure, you gain some space (no walls), but you loose privacy, rational furnishing, comfort ... biggrin.png


Honestly, I don't see any real reason to write a (non trivial) application in a single file (I'm scared by the maintainance nightmare I would eventually address)

In Topic: Pieces movements through graphs (Java)

Thank you for the link and the hint: I will certainly look into that bitboards thing to see if it is applicable to my game.

In Topic: What language do I use?

18 March 2013 - 05:07 AM

Well, they could tell you which is the language (mostly) used to build core engines of games such as Crysis and the like. But as already said, that info will not make you a better coder, not will make you write your first games (which is something far more important).

In Topic: OpenGL or DirectX

09 March 2013 - 06:21 AM

One of the people assisting me with the game is insisting I use OpenGL, saying that slowly it's going to replace DirectX.  And that it's "The graphics library of the future". I just don't know if I can believe him.


Is it possible that he refers to the recent projects of Valve in regards with linux? Valve is currently trying to lead a move of the game industry towards linux, and this means that those developers willing to follow them have to use OGL. Is not yet clear whether or not that shift will happen...

In Topic: A Song of Ice and Fire, and Dark Tower 4.5

ASOIAF is definitely a must read for anyone interested in fantasy (open minded). I've read it 3 times in italian and 1 time in english and it never ceases to impress me. I've found the last 2 books a bit disappointing (too slow and to many sub plots which really don't add anything to the story) but I guess its a consequence of the change to the initial plan (the year gap that should have occoured before TWOW and filled by Martin with these 2 books).

The tv series is well done, but writers did a poor job for many charachters (mostly jon, dany and robb). And then there is Ros, may the Others take her...
