  1. Introduction

    First let me say, that your game is looks pretty awesome. On a technical level, something is wrong with your website certificate. Firefox won't let me browse your site and IE throws up a warning before I can get to it.
  2. Infinity Battlescape

    That's a sexy picture.
  3. Try Gamemaker 2.0. You can learn programming concepts with it and make a game at the same time.
  4. Infinity Battlescape

    Graphics are very crisp. This looks like MMO Wing Commander (this is a good thing). By any chance, will this support any of the controllers for flight sims or just controllers in general?
  5. Intel creates AI chip

    Deep-learning apps that do computer vision, voice recognition and other tasks mostly just need to run matrix calculations on gigantic arrays -- something that doesn't suit general-purpose Core or Xeon chips. Now, thanks to its purchase of deep learning chipmaker Nervana, Intel will ship its first purpose-built AI chips, the Nervana Neural Processor family (NNP), by the end of 2017. Unlike its PC chips, the Nervana NNP is an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) that's specially made for both training and executing deep learning algorithms. "The speed and computational efficiency of deep learning can be greatly advanced by ASICs that are customized for ... this workload," writes Intel's VP of AI, Naveen Rao.

  8. Expectations for all your code, always

    For personal code, pfft. If it compiles and does what i want it to do, then it's Part 1. That's it. I'm good. But for code that I'm sharing with other people, like on GitHub. With the intention of them using it in their projects. Or even more grave, code i'm putting out on production. Yeah, I gotta do as much of Part 2 as possible. I am not very good at logging errors. In fact, honestly, I avoid it. Part of the reason why I put it up there. I need to git gud. Plus, not logging has bit me in the bum more times than I can count.
  9. Part 1 It needs to work. And by work I mean execute without crashing. It needs to do what you expect it to do. It needs to have code you can actually read and debug. Part 2 No Syntax Errors No Warnings (from the compiler) It has tests (yes, even asserts) It passes test. It logs errors. It does not crash. Someone who doesn't know you won't kill you for writing completely illegible code. It has instructions. For the user.
  10. Work on getting your code to work Then work on understanding why your code works in the first place Then work on getting the code to be better Then work on understanding why your code is better in the second place GOTO 1.
  11. **Looks up** Oh. That's how that works. But what happens when there's a Challenge and something else Announcement worthy going on at the same time? Do they fight for that spot or does Announcements work as a list?
  12. How does that work?
  13. IGN acquires Humble Bundle

    Online media giant IGN has acquired Humble Bundle, the indie games storefront best known for its pay-what-you-want bundles that raise money for charity. The company says nothing will change for users and that “we will keep our own office, culture, and amazing team with IGN helping us further our plans.” https://techcrunch.com/2017/10/13/ign-acquires-pay-what-you-want-game-shop-humble-bundle/

  15. Can we get a section on the front page for Challenges? If possible, above everything else?
