    Parse / Split a HUGE file?

    If you have access to some Linux tools, you can accomplish your task without any code (maybe some awk code). You can use the split program to split the CSV file into smaller chunks (not really needed but it'd be easier to manipulate the files), and then pipe the CSV files into an awk script to create the SQL used for the new database. Then you can pipe that SQL file into the mysql command line tool (or whatever database you're using). I've dealt with large files before, and I'm always happy with Linux tools as they've been in business for years and (hopefully) being optimized long enough.

    Pseudo 3D help

    Thank you guys for the replies. I've actually started with Unity a couple of weeks ago, but I hit a roadblock because Unity's export to WebGL renders pretty bad on mobile devices. That's why I'm trying to make something more mobile friendly in terms of performance. I still want to learn this pseudo 3d logic, but for now I might try Phaser and develop something in 2D

    Pseudo 3D help

    Thanks for your reply, Fulcrum. I do understand the overall concept, but when it comes to implementation, I'm not yet comfortable with adding new elements to the game. I noticed in that javascript-racer game the developer used segments which are projected using some pseudo 3d formulas and then rendered at each frame. How could I add tunnels, for example? They would need to be "resized" depending on how far you're from them. I'm not sure if I should use a sprite or a canvas arc.
  4. Hi everyone, I'm having a hard time to understand the concepts of pseudo 3D game programming. I've been using these 2 resources: http://www.extentofthejam.com/pseudo/ https://codeincomplete.com/posts/javascript-racer-v1-straight/ I want to add other elements to that racer game above but can't figure out how. If anyone is willing to help me out, please let me know. If there are other resources you'd recommend (maybe a more complete pseudo 3D game engine), do let me know as well! PS: The game needs to run on a browser so it needs to be implemented with HTML/JS. Thanks

    Multiplayer Pac-man Challenge

    Great job, @mystikkogames! I haven't tried it on mobile yet but would multiplayer work on it as well?

    Nice. That's too low level for me, but I was looking at it and seems to be a great library. I liked this tutorial pages in particular: http://lazyfoo.net/tutorials/SDL/index.php

    @MarcusAseth What game engine are you using if one at all? I saw you posted a C++ code, but not sure if it relies on a game engine or not.

    Study group

    That's a lot of good info, Lucas, thanks a lot! I really liked the Coursera idea and I'm about to sign up for it. I never used that site before but heard it's pretty good. This is quite exciting because it'll be my first financial investment towards game dev excluding a WebGL book I bought awhile back but found it quite boring.

    WTF... I had this idea last week. You stole it from my brain!! jk I might take up this challenge so I can learn some game dev in the process.

    New here and to programming

    Hey Michael, I'm also looking to get together with people who want to learn game development. I've been coding for a while, but I do mostly web and mobile apps, not games. It'd be cool as a motivation to have some kind of weekly (or monthly) assignments that match our skill levels, like - let's build a pacman clone in a month or something like that. It could start very simple but I think this would encourage me (and hopefully others) to keep the ball rolling. I'm not sure how to start this journey though - any ideas?
