  1. Game Engine Senior Design Project

    Might I suggest not to implement useing XNA, but to use Java/OpenGL (possibly building upon jMonkeyEngine)? I'm saying this because there will probably be plenty of .NET/XNA engines out there, while there ain't many grown-up engines (if at all) for Java. And I doubt the real platform independence of the .NET/XNA combination.
  2. Come on guys! Let's rally for NeHe!

  3. Hardcore Programming Challenge

    Quote:Original post by Steve132 <cut> This system will be designed to be a content creation system tailored to image-based 3D graphics and lighting, for photorealistic graphics. (its some pretty amazing stuff) <cut> (you should definatly check out the cutting edge image-based research. really sweet. The demos and theories are jaw dropping) An URL would be interresting here? Quote: Anyhow, to get back to the problem; I am trying to develop a command-line program that will discover (and correct maybe) the first two radial distortion coefficients in photographs. After discovering what this is and why I'm probably not the one to write such a piece of code for you, I'd like to ask you, why on earth would you need this in a content creation system? Isn't the point of a content creation system that you create (amongs others) graphics by techniques like rendering and so don't need to correct camera-lens errors? Quote: <cut> Is there anyone willing to help me tackle this problem? <cut> Willing: yes, capable: no. Anyway, good luck!
  4. Have you checked your calculations for setting up the viewport (dimenstions)? A limitation of the used numeric type (integer types) for example?
  5. NeHe contest theme?

    I like the dreams theme most, but if everyone wants a city theme, that's OK with me...
  6. SQL Database Recovery (No log file)

    Posts about the corrupted log seem to be removed. He got it fixed? If so, it'd be nice if he'd tell us!
  7. Happy birthday to evil?

    Well, way too late to say happy birthday for me off course, but a happy new year of her life I still can wish her. Quote:Original post by Dweller I don't think that clown has recovered yet... Anyway, that clown is now probably somewhere on the streets, staring up to the clouds, mumbling to himself: "Even though I walk through a valley dark as death...."
  8. Happy birthday to evil?

    Ehm, who or what evil? What the **** is he talking about?
  9. When Is the Next Contest?

    Näh, NeHe has probably been killed by his boss, or fried when he tried to touch his PC's CPU [looksaround][lol]. Anyway, patiënce seems to be the only answer for all of us. [wink]
  10. DOS Graphics

    Quote:Original post by Michalson Most tricks will work, however a few commands will cause Windows to close your app and declare that it made an illegal operation (modifying the frequency of the timer for instance) We have DOSBOX today!
  11. Image resizing

    Quote:Original post by Steadtler If the scale is smaller than 1.0, then some pixels will completely disappear. If those pixels happened to be important, some objects can be completely dropped in the destination image! Thats called a "nearest-neighbor resizing". I know about the lost details. But won't you always lose important details when scaling down an image? By just taking an average of the block of pixels that go to one pixel, it seems to me you have exactly the same problem the other way around: the details that are not important and should be dropped can be exaggurated!
  12. Okay, first let me make two things clear first: 1. I'm dutch, and english seems to be not such a strong point for both of us ;) 2. I'm by no means a java programmer, but I'll just take a guess Quote:Would I need to clear anything out of the os (output stream) between sending each string to the php script.. will the previous string still be there?,or is it cleared after every flush ! Seems illogical to me you'd need to clear a stream. Maybe the data you put in stays there until it's all physically sent, I don't know, but normally, you shouldn't have to worry about such things. Quote:Also do you think a sleep of maybe 300 would be needed after every flush because of the slowness of the connections and to give the php script a chance to deal with the previous command (string)? I don't think so. At least, if your API doesn't specify you should wait. Anyway, I guess you can keep putting data into the output-stream, and it'll just be queued for sending. You surely shouldn't worry about the PHP-scripts. PHP is designed to be able to handle thousands of requests simultaniously, if the hosting machine permits it, that is. But a 1Ghz machine with 128MB of mem should already be able to handle a 500 connections or so I guess, depending on how CPU-intensive the scripts are. You should however write your PHP-scripts in a way that permits them to run more than one at a time. For example, haveing 100 threads with a PHP-script write to one ASCII-file is a bad idea. It'll get messed up. Instead, you could write to a database, or have an interface-script, which queues the read/write transactions....
  13. What is best video card for under $100?

    I'd go for a Radeon 9600 (or 9700 -> might just be cheap enough) if I where you. I don't know about the prices over there, but over here they're about 90 euros. And I believe euro's and dollar's have about the same value...
  14. Well, if you really want some 1337 poster :D, take a look at the linux kernelmapper. I believe the program creating this beast is also available, so check out whatever else program you can map!
