In Topic: Windows 7 Pro Or Windows 10 Pro?

19 July 2016 - 11:35 AM

I think Windows 10 is fine if you disable the telemetry-trash and Windows Update (which force-rebooted me in the middle of a gaming session). It still does quirky things from time to time, but Windows 7 did too.


In Topic: Did you know GDNet turned 17 today?

26 June 2016 - 05:22 AM

Today is also exactly 16 years since I joined. It's good to see GDnet is still alive and well (unlike flipcode, anyone remember that one?).

 

That was a time where OpenGL 1.2.1 or DirectX 7 were the APIs to code games for Windows. There was no Unity or Unreal Engine, you had to make the games yourself, like a real game dev. I also remember the four elements competitions (the young kids would call them "jams"). I wouldn't mind having those back again.

 

Where has all the time gone? I feel old now...  -_-

And a few years before that, was the time of creating your own software renderer. There was no OpenGl 1.2.1 or DirectX 7, you had to make the games yourself, like a real game dev.

But yeah, I don't know where all the time has gone. :)


In Topic: How Would You Reconnect with Old Friends

So you want to reconnect with friends you previously 'dumped' because... your life is slow? 


In Topic: Two or more monitors

21 February 2016 - 06:30 AM

I agree, the UE4 editor feels very cramped with only one monitor. I keep the main window on the center monitor, blueprint/editor on left and content browser on the right. I couldn't imagine working without three monitors.


In Topic: Someone explain this thing about manual transmissions to me...

10 December 2015 - 08:57 PM

I've been driving cars with manual transmission for the last 10 years, but recently opted for an automatic one. My guess is I'll never go back to manual transmission again, it's such a huge leap in comfort. Where I live (Sweden) manual transmissioned cars are more common and are easier to sell, but automatics are getting more and more common as a luxuary option.

I've also heard that you're less of a good person if you drive automatics. ;)

 

Edit: Keep in mind you'll have trouble selling your car (in the U.S) in the future if you buy a manual transmissioned one.
