  1. Anybody left from the 2003 crowd?

    It has been a while, just stopping by to wish everyone a happy christmas!   (but where's the christmas theme?)
  2. Ah thanks, there might be a glimmer of hope for me then. Getting some more coffee to get me through the night.
  3. I'm an idiot: what is the deadline in CET? Couldn't work on it on Saturday, so I just hope I can deliver anything remotely playable. Still working on the basic game play, so there's not much in the screenshot unfortunately, just basic place holder 'art'. [img]http://i.imgur.com/gFgsD.png[/img]
  4. I'm ready. [img]http://i.imgur.com/osxad.jpg[/img]
  5. [quote name='irreversible' timestamp='1337188705' post='4940702'] [quote name='irreversible' timestamp='1337151335' post='4940607'] Do I have to release my code? [/quote] Still mildly curious about this.[/quote] We never had that requirement in past challenges. [quote name='Oolala' timestamp='1337160988' post='4940633'] Do you put any sort of restriction on content/platform/etc? [/quote] I think that mostly depends on the judges' testing environments, but the more people can play it the better of course. You can check the previous contests following the links in the original post to get an idea of what kind of games were submitted in the past.
  6. Reputation spamming

    ^^ Just wondering, is there a size restriction for signatures? Don't get me wrong, I think those graphics look awesome and I don't mind them that much in this case, but I would hate to see a trend where signatures become bigger than the actual post, like you see on some boards. I think the old forum only allowed text, so it wasn't really much of an issue.

[quote name='swiftcoder' timestamp='1336770538' post='4939412'] [quote name='Gaiiden' timestamp='1336745851' post='4939302'] Turning off vote bumping isn't very fair for polls[/quote] I'm not sure that leaving it on is very fair to discussion postings. The number of times I've noticed that an idiot-thread keeps jumping to the top of the list when people vote on it, is quite high. [/quote] I'd like to add that polls without any discussion are pretty pointless anyway. Although I suppose one can argue that a poll requires a certain amount of votes to take off as a topic for debate, but then again I would guess traffic here isn't so high that a poll gets relegated to the second page within hours of creating it.
  8. Question About Vectors

    [quote name='taby' timestamp='1336769374' post='4939406'] Clearly I missed something here, because everyone is talking about TileContainer being a class and not a variable? Where was the class defined? What the? [/quote] The typedef enables the alternative name [i]TileContainer[/i] to be used instead of the more verbose [i]std::vector<Tile*>[/i]: [CODE]typedef std::vector<Tile> TileContainer;[/CODE] So either the OP intended to declare a variable but mistakenly added the typedef keyword, or he/she forgot to declare a (member) variable of type [i]TileContainer[/i] (or[i] std:vector<Tile*>[/i]) alltogether.
  9. Bump. Still interested, but I seem to be the only one?
  10. [quote name='Michael Tanczos' timestamp='1336664614' post='4939019'] This could even go as far as to allow you to edit people's posts[/quote] Wait... what? I'm not sure how this is a good idea. I know gamification is all the rage these days, but this sounds like you're essentially earning the right to troll. On a technical note, when I visit [url="http://www.gamedev.net/sm/member/66798-wan"]my reputation page[/url], Firefox throws a slow script warning after a few seconds: [font=courier new,courier,monospace]A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete. Script: [url="http://www.gamedev.net/public/js/3rd_party/highstock/highstock.js:196"]http://www.gamedev.n...ighstock.js:196[/url][/font] I'm not sure what it's trying to load, but there's a large empty area right under the "total reputation" title. It does show everything from the "reputation earned" section down it seems. I'm using a netbook, and although it's relatively new, it's obviously not the fastest machine in the world. So as long as no one else is experiencing this issue, I'd guess it's not a critical bug. Back to the Lounge. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img]

  12. I assume the IP addresses aren't visible to the public either?
  13. joke code

    [quote name='fastcall22' timestamp='1334853299' post='4932860'] Hmm? I don't get it. It looks like code I encounter on a daily basis... [/quote] [url="http://instantrimshot.com/"]And you're the only programmer on the team![/url] [size=2](I challenge you all to make a worse joke)[/size]
  14. [quote name='zer0wolf' timestamp='1334004256' post='4929666'] I wasn't even thinking about people and school [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png[/img] Would be the middle of May work better? [/quote] Don't wait too long, because the weather might be too nice by then; and bringing my laptop to the beach never proved to be all that productive. ;) Anyway, I might be interested and if I can't make it I can still offer my services as a judge like last time.
  15. Feminism is the destroying the world!

    [quote name='Hodgman' timestamp='1334052562' post='4929846'] Just saying [i]"Hey guys I'm an offensive misogynist but this video proves I'm right so watch it"[/i] (paraphrasing) does not really inspire me to click.[/quote] She is sitting in the kitchen. Point taken.
