In Topic: This is why Modern Tomb Raider Games aren't good...

12 January 2014 - 01:08 AM

First of the tomb raider games I have actually played and beat..

Mostly because the controls are at a point where they are not a hindrance

The graphics do help as well, that key I need actually looks like a key, and not a line on the ground, with all the other lines, I need to be standing in the exact spot to pick it up


graphics im hoping is hitting a peak, look at current consoles, while they are 'better' then the previous generation, the improvement isn't as substantial

4k resolution is not rushing everyone out, xboxone is 720p?


so hopefully they can start spending more on the other parts of the game, I like a challenge, I just don't want to fight poor controls and graphics to make the challenge.

In Topic: Is anyone else having doubts about the Raspberry Pi?

I think the device is for experimenting, I had mine for ages, projects in mind, build an os, slowly gathering parts for a robot (have nearly all the movement and vision, but it needs a brain.


I sold mine so I am able to buy the upgraded version (got a good deal, some price that I paid for it.


The other person wanted it for a business client, they setup solar panels at schools, and record the information down to give to the teachers to teach the students about solar panels, they wanted to use the small factor of the pi as an client to download the information from the panels and ftp it to a web server to display the results.

In Topic: So I have the skill and the ideas, what next?

similar feelings so I'm trying for next year to do this challenge http://onegameamonth.com/ just a single month to do an idea from start to finish, so don't have time to dither about it and get discouraged.


I did a similar exercise for writing http://www.nanowrimo.org/ 50k words in November and that felt quite positive.

You could take a look at Three Hundred Mechanics and see if anything inspires you, or perhaps try one of the Lost Garden prototyping challenges. Posted Image

Thanks for posting that, was considering trying the 12 games in 12 months, and something like that would narrow down the thinking of idea's time.

In Topic: What would I need to get someone else to program for me OR how can I learn ea...

I found video tutorials were good, usually when following written tutorials, there is an error that if you don't understand why it has an error, They can be hard to fix.


I found this tutorial in java useful..its a bit more advanced them some of the other game coding tutorials, but its easy enough to stop/rewind, there are simpler ones, and in other languages, if you do want to try something else.
