Upgrade Update: Reputation Feedback

Reputation. This is a tricky subject. The site upgrade - by nature of the upgrade - is going to introduce changes to our reputation system. There is no stopping the change. The current reputation system is custom-made and is not portable to the upgrade. This doesn't mean we couldn't port it, but it's a question of ROI. Some may perceive this to be a negat....

Someday I'll be a master

Yesterday I picked up a copy of Effective C++, 3rd Edition by Scott Meyers. So far it's pretty cool and loaded with stuff I had never thought of before. Reading it is kind of like having Washu tell you how to fix your design, only it doesn't make you feel bad I advise anyone who wants to learn to write better C++ to get this book..

Introduction to Existence (Help wanted!)

I joined Sledge Hammer two months ago as the Lead Programmer, quite a task considering the size of this project. If you don't know anything about it, it is a 3D MMO, so that alone gives you a good idea of the work involved. Right now we have four programmers: Myself - Lead Programmer Anthony - Network/Server Programmer Robert - Graphics Programmer Chris -....

Rotation and terrain following

For the last week I have been concerned with finding a way for the tank to follow the terrain. This was complicated by the fact that I totally forgot all my Linear Algebra and I really didn't know where to start. So I basically did what I have always done when I was at that point - start my browser and goto Google. After searching for the topic I wanted I....

My town is famous!

I was watching this movie a few days ago called "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle". This is a very hilarious movie and I suggest to all of you to watch it. Anyway, the movie supposedly took place in Hoboken, New Jersey. The movie is about these two guys who get stoned and see a commercial for White Castle and want it since it is "the perfect meal". ....

Mood Detection

I was wondering, and thinking about how you could use a players input from any input device, keyboard, joystick etc to determine what kind of mood the player is in. Depending on how they use the keys, button bashing, slow simple movements etc could determine how the person feels at that moment in time. A-> If the player is bashing away at the keys....

Argh

Figures as soon I get serious about finishing something and have the finally have the code toolbox available to do so my life becomes "interesting". The delay continues for at least the next three weeks as finish a couple of side-job contracts to bring my mortgage up-to-date. My new job is quite demanding, but I don’t write much code. My time appears....

JOURNAL NECROMANCY!!!11one

Bwahahaha! I have lots of free time at the new job right now, so I'm inflicting an entry on you. And yes, a new entry in this particular journal was said to herald in the end times. May God have mercy on your souls. Fun times at the new job, which is 4 months and counting now. Tech support; yay! "I broke my Intarweb; can you send it to me on....

Fitter, Happier, More Productive

I had hit a bit of a slump with the progress of the engine, mainly due to the initial design showing its flaws. One such problematic system was the resource manager that handles loading and sharing of textures, meshes, etc - it worked, but I wasn't happy with the way it had turned out so I started a new side project to prototype different ways to....

Bye Bye

Well, I've come to the conclusion that I don't want to be as involved with compturs, technology, graphics... any of this stuff... in the future as I am now. Adobe makes bad software, and there's nothing anyone can do about it, except yell and beat small animals into submission. Or just yell. Anyways, the choice morons on GDNet have also convinced me....

First pass at redesign of parser

OK this is what I came up with at work: My basic plan is to have one class that parses through the input buffer and puts each word into a vector. It then finds the token for each word. There is another class which holds the noun and verb and uses them to call an action. All the verbs are instances of general verb classes inherited from the base....
