1. ## Game Competitions?

Hey guys, I'm kind of bored, and I'm wondering, is there any online game making competition? I once participated in a 24hr competition, and I REALLY enjoyed it. there is nothing like staying up all night bugging a stupid CTF game... Do you know any current\close competition?
2. ## 2D terran generating

Ok, thanks guys, I'm think I'm going to try what WanMaster said about taking the average points near a point. I just dont have the mathematical background or the time to learn it to implement splines or noise... I dont want to complicate it too much, just having some fun :) so what I thought to do is to pass after the initially generated terrain on all points, and check that the average delta is not too big... well, I'll hope I could think of something. Thanks!
3. ## 2D terran generating

I'm trying to randomly generate a 2D terrain (in worms-like 2D games) but so far I'm not pleased with my result. what I do is randomly generate points, and draw lines between them. I tried to limit the delta between 2 near points, increasing\decreasing the distance between points, and still, I get rough, edgy results. is there a way to "smooth" the results? Thanks! here is the code: m_Points[0].x = 0; m_Points[0].y = hge->Random_Float(200,250); for (int i=1; i<Length; i++) { m_Points.x = i * 8; newy = hge->Random_Float(200,400); while (abs(newy-m_Points[i-1].y)>4) { newy = hge->Random_Float(200,250); } m_Points.y = newy; } here is a URL for the screenshot. http://www.largeimagehost.com/img/new-gallery-name/ehQsUhU/example.JPG.html
4. ## Changing Saturation, Hue & Contrast on SDL

Is there any way to change Saturation, Hue & Contrast of an SDL surface? If there isn't any ready functionallity for this, can you refer me to any reference to how to do it? Thanks.

7. ## FREE chess? (online, not as guest)

LOL I accidently pressed the Enter key and my post was at amazing length of 4 words!!! :-]
8. ## FREE chess? (online, not as guest)

Apperantly you can play free chess online only as a guest... I'm looking for a FREE program that you can play chess and not as a guest (personal rating, tournaments etc.) Any recommendations?
9. ## Orthogonal 3D (Isoemtric) with Irrlicht

Do you know what happened to the tutorial by Saigumi (http://www.saigumi.net/archives/000067.html) about making a Orthogonal view in Irrlicht? Does anyone have a mirror of this tutorial, or if someone could explain to me about how to do it? Thanks.
10. ## Robotics

SanityAssassin, Thanks for the links! The problem with those sites is that they are so commercialized (long word = typo) and all they do are selling their kits for hundreds of dollars... I dont expect building a robot in 2$, but to buy a kit for 100+$ is kind of pricy for me, and it feels like you are just buying a toy with a long construction manual... Do you know any site where you dont have to buy a kit, and there are plans/examples for even for the simplest "robots"? Thanks again.
11. ## Robotics

I know this topic is far from game developing, but I dont know where to ask. I'm learning now electronics (PE degree) and I'm quite intrested in robotics. Do you have any idea where I can find ANYTHING about robotics? any good site for begginers? any good books you recommend? It sound kind of cool to build a robot (and program it with a micro-controller) , one of my childhood dreams :-D Thanks.
12. ## 8051 assemblers and emulators

Thanks kSquared, I wasnt sure in what forum to post.
13. ## 8051 assemblers and emulators

I'm looking for a GOOD 8051 Assmebler and Emulator. Do you know any good ones? I'm willing to pay for a good one, but if you know any FREE ones, that would be great. I'm looking for a good electronics site, do you recommend any one? (subject line edited by k2) [Edited by - kSquared on December 17, 2005 10:53:10 AM]
14. ## CodeBlocks and Auto Complete?!

I cant get CodeBlocks to auto complete SDL code, even that I configured the plugin to follow GLOBAL includes... Is it possible to set it somehow to complete SDL or other libs?
15. ## NEW VERSION: Curator Defense v1.3

Ahh!!! Stupid White on White level! bah, I cant even beat easy, but I made it to last level :-D here is my setup (I actually took another better picture in last level, with additional structures, but it wasn't on the screenshot directory :-() Setup It's quite good setup, mass splash tower + mass power towers rock!
