    Starting my second "game"

    For a nice java library look into Golden T Game Engine www.goldenstudios.or.id/products/GTGE I havnt used it in a year or so but when I did it was very well written and the community support was also very good. It has a input, sound, graphics and other libraries that speed up the game design process. As far as C++ goes you can use allegro (Allegro.cc I belive) or look into SDL for graphics. You will have to search for those for more info.

    PL/SQL Question

    Bad internet, it takes me about 5 minutes to load a page where I am. I tried to post 5 times with no luck (timed out) so I just kept trying until it worked (4 more times) Even though I got 3 of the 4 saying it timed out, 3 of them went through. But it was taking too long to post -> time out -> check for time out -> new post -> wait all over again. Then I had to take about 10 minutes per post to delete the others due to the bad load time.

    Getting a tables column names in Oracle?

    Found out how to view the tables Select column_name from all_tab_cols where table_name='NAME' I wasnt capitalizing the name of my table (had name instead of NAME). But does anyone know how to check if the column is a Primary Key, NOT NULL or Foreign Key (can you check this part even)? EDIT: Ok I found out how to determine the Primary Key of a table, so the only thing I need to know now is how to determine if a category is one that cannot have a null value. Thanks for any help.

    Oracle / SQL Question

    Perfect. Thank you very much.
  6. First off, I really enjoyed the game, especially the boss fight. However, I did notice a funny little bug. After I beat the boss, I saw the credits, then started a new game to keep playing. I noticed that the number of hour glasses I had collected did not reset. I collected 4 the first time through, and when I returned the 1st I collected was number 5, second was 6 and so on. Dont know if you have seen that (probably so), but I figured it couldnt hurt. Great game, I hope there is more to play sometime!

    Quote:Original post by honayboyz My sewage/water/trash/"complimentary services" bill last month was $12.00, my rent is $500, $70 for internet/cable, $110!!! for electricity (I have a studio and I'm 12 hour a day computer user). Those are the only bills we pay for the apartment, or should I say I pay. It sucks man if you have an option to live at home TAKE IT!!!! I know its uncool but it's "free". edit: oh yea, and I have insurance on all my stuff, its like $250 a year I think. Homes about 300 miles away, so its not really an option.

    Quote:Original post by jollyjeffers How long are you staying in the flat? Not entirely clear from your OP [oh] I ask because, at least here in the UK, many utility companies specify a minimum (e.g. 6 months) term on their contacts. I've known a couple of people who've been stung by cancelling/leaving before their minimum term is up. Could be worth considering. Jack 3 years most likley. Thanks for all the replies guys.

    Books to buy?

    Quote: 1- Beginning C++ Game Programming (Game Development Series) [Paperback] By: Michael Dawson 4- Swords & Circuitry: A Designer's Guide to Computer Role-Playing Games (Game Development) [Paperback] By: Neal Hallford, Jana Hallford 1-- Good book. I really liked it to start. However I also have 1.5 years of Java expirience under my belt. 4-- This has nothing to do with programming. Only development. You could try Programming Role Playing Games with DirectX second edition, but I am not sure how good it is. EDIT: Guess I misread the book name the first time.

    strange or interesting job requirements ?

    You take pride in delivering rock-solid software that works flawlessly the first time and you deliver it before deadlines I think that part stops anyone from getting the job.

    beginner, college..

    Quote: Yeah, the actual programming classes in CS are usually not too difficult. Then again, they're only a fraction of what CS is about. You're in for a few surprises if you think your programming classes are representative of CS. Right now its easy just because it is only learning the langauge too. Plus I can do all I've done because I have looked at C a bit before and already have a few years of java backing. A 3 day lecture over primatives just isnt going to hold my interest.

    beginner, college..

    Quote:Original post by blut3ng3l is it smarter to go to a normal college and get into computer science? or to go to an art college and actually work for game design or programming and get a degree? I have always heard a full degree, then if gaming doesnt work out for you your not hosed.
