  1. What creeps you out or scares you?

    parasites and run time errors
  2. Shortest Route (the game)

    159.76 including 14 fouls btw you should make it so that you cant continue jumping on blue squares after winning ><
  3. Title the Modern Age

    ****The MySpace Age****
  4. #define and const

    Imo #define can be useful in a certain few situations... for example #define PI 3.14159 void function(double x); void anotherfunction(float x); int main{ function(PI); anotherfunction(PI); return(0); } seems slightly easier than doing const float f_pi = 3.14159; const double d_pi = 3.14159; int main{ function(d_pi); anotherfunction(f_pi); } Not a big difference, but I think it makes it slightly easier to code and understand. Edit: Mixed up d_pi and f_pi - see! I told you it was easier the other way!!!
  5. Baldur's Gate 2 SoA

    no need to try to control 6 characters... just play it through completely with a single sorcerer/mage - its completely doable

  9. Cannot get average of three variables.

    system("pause") isnt really less work if you just use a #define PAUSE (cin.get() or whatever you use to pause)
  10. Yay SecuROM!

    secuROM wouldn't let me play Titan Quest because my disc which I had just bought at the store was "a backup disc." So yes, pester secuROM as much as possible :)
  11. reading more than 2 keys at once from a keyboard?

    you could use a 789 4 6 123 setup for 4 dimensions and separate keys for other directions or you could make it so only a key press (not holding down the key) will make you move in that direction, so repeated presses will accelerate/decelerate. Or of course let the mouse have a part in movement. Seems like you dont have many other options if the keyboard will only recognize 2 held down at once ><

  13. problem resetting lost direct3d device

    After alt-tabbing out of full screen, I know i need to free D3DPOOL_DEFAULT sources and use reset(). I changed my textures to D3DPOOL_MANAGED to attempt to get rid of the problem, but i still recieve this error: D3D9 Helper: IDirect3DDevice9::Reset failed: D3DERR_INVALIDCALL Direct3D9: (ERROR) :The following D3DPOOL_DEFAULT surfaces/buffers/textures still exist Direct3D9: (ERROR) : D3DRTYPE_VERTEXBUFFER Direct3D9: (ERROR) : D3DRTYPE_INDEXBUFFER Direct3D9: (ERROR) :All user created D3DPOOL_DEFAULT surfaces must be freed before Reset can succeed. Reset Fails. Direct3D9: (ERROR) :Reset failed and Reset/TestCooperativeLevel/Release are the only legal APIs to be called subsequently As I am only using 2d graphics at the moment, I never created either a vertex buffer or an index buffer, so it seems like these errors shouldnt happen. Help is greatly appreciated :).
