  1. Northern Michigan

    I'm from southeastern Michigan.[img]http://public.gamedev.net/public/style_emoticons/default/cool.gif[/img]
  2. Monitors and HDMI. Why can't they just work?

    I've never had problems using HDMI monitors with my computer. Now I'm using a de-branded HP monitor and it works fine.
  3. C++ Arrays

    You can *effectively* pass or return an array by wrapping it in a struct...but don't do it. Just nice to know.
  4. VC2005 produces old style gui !

    Another link with some of the same stuff. But it also has this tidbit if you don't want to bother with the manifest file (not sure if there are any downsides to this): #pragma comment(linker,"/manifestdependency:\"type='win32' name='Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls' "\ "version='6.0.0.0' processorArchitecture='*' publicKeyToken='6595b64144ccf1df' language='*'\"")VS2005 or higher

  6. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! 3H-GDC starts right in the middle of my team work session for our final game project (starting our last milestone [smile]). I was looking forward to participating, but I guess I'll be watching again [sad] I hope to see some ASCII awesome games!
  7. Japanese language question

    yay for dictionaries! Don't forget to hit the box for romanized if you don't have a Japanese IME.
  8. Japanese language question

    Both jonathanjansson and janta are correct. [smile] Shame on you, Google [sad].
  9. Haha, maybe it's finally time for me to participate! I'm not good with puzzle games though.[sad]
  10. I hope this guy is just pulling our leg

    What's there to "develop"? He rolled a ball across a table at his wife—GAME FINISHED! I really don't get it. What exactly is the difference between Bulletball and Bulletball Extreme, I wonder.
  11. What makes MMORPGs so addicting?

    1) Nope. Sorry, I don't like MMORPGs...so no. 2) Being able to interact with people and not be seen. 3) Get help from a friend.
  12. How many of you...

    Quote:students == $$Corrected [smile] I'm self taught, too—though I'm going to university now. If for nothing else, the experience is worth it. Plus there are people here who actually know what their doing. I feel as if I'm getting smarter by osmosis.
  13. Your new proposed branch sounds like a great place where corruption and nepotism can flourish [smile]. People are stupid, people do stupid things, and people lie; creating a new branch of government isn't going to stop any of that. In reality, each branch of the government should be replaced by a chou powerful feminine supercomputer! They work together for the common good—and they fight giant MONSTAAAAAARRRRRS!
  14. Questionnaire (games and guitars)

    I don't know if what I do could be considered playing...[smile] But I do both, too.
  15. Where to start with Direct X Game programming.

    If you just want to learn enough Win32 for making games, then tutorials should be enough. The first four tutorials here will get you to the point where you can make a basic window. There may be better tutorials if you search, but for any tutorial you use—and I cannot stress this enough—DO NOT just cut and paste code. Go through it line by line and make sure you understand what's happening. If you come across something you don't understand, then look it up (MSDN Library or everyone's best friend). If you want a much deeper introduction to Win32, you could take a look at
