  1. At long last... after 6 months

    Well I gave my iPod Touch to my girlfriend a few days ago, so I can't try it, but I wanted to say congrats. :) I hope I can get my Android game to the same level of graphical detail that it appears your game as achieved.

  3. [web] PHP w/mySQL problem

    What happens if you change the line to this? $db = mysql_select_db('hughie', $connection) or die('Can't find to database');
  4. [web] Lua in PHP?

    Quote:Original post by ID Merlin Scripts can be considered data like anything else. In my current project, I've built a script system that uses a "mini" programming language, with actions that are converted directly to PHP and evaled. The variables that can be used correspond directly to game values. For instance, a valid command would be to SET the PLAYER MORALE to 50. Or, ADD ITEM '+1 Sword' TO ENEMY. If you are careful with your design, it should be maintainable. Build a good editor that validates the data, and you should be able to keep this under control. Thanks Merlin, I was thinking of something along these lines as a possibility. I built a script parser/interpreter a good 7 years or so ago, and I was thinking about revamping it for this project. Appreciate the input! :)
  5. [web] Lua in PHP?

    Quote:Original post by Sander Quote:Just wondering what you guys would recommend in this regards. I'd recommend a decent plugin system of some kind instead of data-specific eval'ed code. The system you're discussing sounds like a maintenance nightmare to happen. Do you have any recommendations, or could you point me in the right direction of a tutorial or something? I've never utilized plug-ins in my applications before. All the solutions I could think of seemed like maintenance nightmares, which is why I came here. Thanks for the help :)
  6. [web] Lua in PHP?

    Thanks guys. I was thinking about the eval function too, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do. Would it be considered poor practice to include PHP scripts for quests in database records? My reasoning is that quest scripts reference item data, spell data etc...these pieces of data have auto-generated ID's, and I don't want to hack anything data-specific into my code. I suppose I could create specific scripts like "leave_room_###.php" that I could then include() or require() into the currently running script, but I don't really like that option since it still feels like a hack to include data-specific code with app-centric code. Just wondering what you guys would recommend in this regards. Hope my questions makes sense. :P Thanks again!
  7. I'm trying to find out if there's an easy way to implement Lua in PHP. Google is useless for searching anything like "Lua in PHP", as the results are just generic "Lua" located at sites/pages ending in ".php". If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm also open to alternative methods you might have for implementing quests into a web-based RPG. :)
  8. [web] Free .com ?

    www.apache.org Get the HTTP Server
  9. [web] google ads

    Yeah, they do
  10. Where to incorporate?

    Delaware. PS: I didn't read your post.

  12. Need some logo work? Salsa is your flavor.

    Hey Salsa -- Just curious if you saw my post on the second page. Is it too hard to do? Let me know, maybe I can come up with a simpler concept.
  13. Need some logo work? Salsa is your flavor.

    Hey Salsa, I'm working on a website relating to alcoholic beverage recipes and locating bars/pubs/clubs in the area. The site's name is "Crunked Monkey", but it hasn't been created/uploaded yet. I'm programming the site on my laptop now. Basically for our logo we were hoping for a cartoon-ish monkey to be drinking/holding a mug of beer with some whacked out drunken looking eyes and some squiggles over his head, as if he was drunk...possibly hanging from the "Crunked Monkey" words, as in a combination of the sample images below. Another idea would be to have the monkey sticking out of a circle with the logo written on the logo...somewhat like how this cigarette is sticking out of the circle while still behind it, if that makes sense... I'd be happy to throw some cash to you through PayPal for it, and $10 sounds like a pretty good deal. :) Let me know if you're interested, I'll bookmark this thread. Oh, and if you want to contact me directly, shoot me an email at mhuggins@udel.edu EDIT: I forgot to mention, we're looking for an icon to have in the top-left of the page, kind of similar to the logo size found here. Sorry I can't provide the exact dimensions, but we'll probably end up designing the rest of the page sizing based upon the logo size.
  14. Super Mario Brothers 3 remake

    Is it just me, or is this thing still squares with the update?? I dunno what's going on here.
