Witchlord domination!

Recommended Posts

Well Witchlord, I see that flipcode noticed your page. I was browsing through flipcode and saw "Witchlord.com has triangluar beziers" or something like that. Then I said "Holy Crap! I know that guy!" btw, I tried your program and it crashed on my system. It could be my system since most d3d apps crash on it. Like my engine, your program, and even Unreal Tournament!!! Well, keep up the good work! ------------------------ Captured Reality.

I saw that too, Im like, man, know Witchlord is on Flipcode. I tried the program and only the background comes up so I get 1,100 fps, but no triangle. If I get a demo that works I like to try some of that code

Is WitchLord''s dominance really good for us? (j/k)

Just think, he knows about all our projects, and has a hand in almost everyone of them.... Some time in the future he might recall all this to his lawyers....

It might be time that GameDev users have the right to democratically elect thier moderator!



Still - don''t vote for nes8bit!

Later

Hmm, did the text boxes change again? or is just my MAC?

Well, gamedev isn''t a democracy, it''s gamedevism.

I noticed that one too . It feels good to know that someone like Kurt Miller actually checks out my page once in a while.

I don't think I'll ever require anything from you all, but I would appreciate you spreading the word about my vast knowledge since I really want to get a job as a game developer.

About electing the moderators, in effect you actually did elect me to be moderator for this forum. People (including nes8bit) started suggesting it and Dave saw it and asked if I was interested. I'm sure if you really wanted to you could get a moderator kicked as well (not that I think you dislike me ). You'd be surprised how much you actually have to say about things here on GameDev.net.

Now back to my program. I want to hear why it doesn't work on your machines.

nes8bit, did you get a message box with an error message? And what system do you have?

Esap1, did you try to press the key 's'? (Read about it in the readme file)

Yes kevin, but flipcode.com linked to witchlord''s page. Pretty cool eh?

Witchlord: Your program gives this message:
------------------------------------------
Error: DDERR_INVALIDPIXELFORMAT
File: C:\Documents\Program\Arkiv\DirectX\source\TriPatch\d3dapp.cpp
line: 508
------------------------------------------

I have a Dell Dimension (Pentium 3) using an Intel graphics accelerator with 128 MB ram. Has DX7.

I looked through your source and it''s right after the initialization code. I''m seriously betting that my graphics card is screwing it up.

I''m just wondering, if I port your tutorials to VB, could I use them on my page? You''ll get credit of course. My tutorials are pretty terrible.

Kurt Miller? FlipCode? Hahahaha!

It''s amazing the high regard people place upon other ordinary people. I''ve seen several signs of megalomania amongst the GD Net staff, but I can''t really say about Kurt just yet. So he runs a site... So?

Getting "mentioned" on FlipCode is about as easy as eating pancakes kiddies, so don''t get overly excited. Being on TV would be something fun, but being on FlipCode and letting that boost your already inflated ego is just silly. In a forum full of too many ego-centric types, don''t let something this trivial go to your head.

I do remember

nes8bit, try to set the desktop bitdepth to 16 bit before starting my application.

Just notify me when you put it up so I can read it

Alright!!! It worked! I think I''m gonna implement this one in my engine too. It was kind of glitchy though. It was smooth, but was very very very jerky. Nothing big was running also.

Now why is it any different to be on TV than being on FlipCode? And do you really think I will change my behaviour in any way just because I get mentioned on a popular game development site?

The reason I am pleased that he mentioned my site is that I want to become a game developer and it can only help if people in the industry actually knows about me. I don''t think I''m better or anything just because people can see me on FlipCode, just that more people know my skills.

Besides I already know I am the best there is.

HA! Sure Witchlord....Sure

If you really want to join something, join my project. I need developers! If not, then would you like to make mods?? Ok, maybe not that also, but it was worth a try.
