1. ## give up learning C++?

Learn it. You don't have to be a "master" of a language to produce useful things from it. Start with simple programs and grow to bigger ones, increasing your knowledge of the language as you go. You can do a *lot* with even a subset of C++.
2. ## Fewer, better, harder, stronger

Shadow of the colossus, for playstation 2, has a similar concept, on the very basic level. The game consists entirely of very large "bosses" that you must conquer.
3. ## integral of cosine product

cos(a + b) = cos(a)cos(b) - sin(a)sin(b) cos(a - b) = cos(a)cos(b) + sin(a)sin(b) cos(a + b) + cos(a - b) = 2cos(a)cos(b) ( cos(a + b) + cos(a - b) ) / 2 = cos(a)cos(b)
4. ## What Is The Next Stage of Game Graphics?

Quote:Original post by Alpha_ProgDes c) Do you think raytracing can produce the same effects non-photorealistic images (OP image for example)? c1) Would it be harder or easier or just as difficult? it seems like NPR (as well as many aspects of photo-realistic rendering) is easier with ray tracing, if only because you naturally access to so much more information during computation that you have in rasterization-based rendering.

5. ## Auto-cast a class in c++

You can use operator overloading for casting. #include <iostream> using std::cout; class EvenNumber { public: EvenNumber(int i) : num(i) { } operator bool() { return ((num % 2) == 0); } int num; }; int main (int argc, char** args) { EvenNumber x5(5); EvenNumber x6(6); if (x5) cout << "5 is even."; if (x6) cout << "6 is even."; return 1; } Note that operator bool doesn't have a return type, since it's implied.
