  1. So I've spent a few hours creating a Flash (MX) animation, thinking when I published it, it would only publish the white area. A foolish mistake. So now I have all kinds of things jutting out at all angles where I was hoping Flash would cut them out at publish time. Does anyone know of an easy fix for this? A way to get Flash to only publish the white "Work Area"? Thanks.
  2. Flight Simulator addicts. [img heavy]

    I've never been in to flight sims, but I haven't played any recently. The learning curve for most actual flight sims is high, and there's a lot of taking off and landing (I can't land or park anything) for the little bit of dogfighting you get to do. And dogfighting is always hampered by such senseless things like odometers, or whatever those things are. I mean, some dude's hitting me with missiles and I've got to watch my altitude and pressure and stuff? Meh. Maybe I should just stick to Starfox.
  3. Half-Life 2 - It's Not a Good Game

    Having never played Half-Life 2: Doesn't the separate sequences make the game more interesting? I mean, take Metal Gear Solid, for example. Remember when they torture you, and you have to button-mash to get past that part? Terrible way to vary gameplay. But take Zelda[x], for example. Shooting, riding, shooting-riding, hacking bushes, racing... All fun diversions, mini-games, or side-quests, and the dungeons are all interesting and different anyway. Perfect way to break it up a little. If I give you a platformer, and you say "Yeah, I like this game," and I just throw in 9987 more levels, all basically he same, with different variations of block and monster positioning, you won't play through it, because gameplay gets boring. Or maybe you wouldn't, being a Doom and Dungeon Siege fan... I appreciate game developers putting more variation in their games, if for no other reason than to break up the monotony of it all.

Let me just reiterate this for you, you implied that you were screwing your sister's mom, aka your mom! Yeah, but that's not the point. The point is, it was pure, unscripted genius. Anyone else, and it would have been perfect.
  5. MMORPG's That Don't (New #2 And Now #3)

    Somebody needs to sticky this so it doesn't get lost in the archives of dead posts.
  6. Best Comeback Lines

    I'm walking through a door, and my sister thought I was dad, so she goes "Awww... You were supposed to be dad," and I go "that's what she said!" STFU, it was brilliant. Seriously, though, "That's what she said" is the greatest comeback ever. Simple, but it can be incredibly well used. Plus it implies you were having sex with their mother, and who wants that?
  7. Evaluate my code please

    Quote:Original post by DrunkinCanadian I havent fully read your code yet but it seems well tabbed.The one thing that sticks out at me is that there are no comments through the whole thing.People like those apparently.Other than that the first skim through seemed alright. Heh. Sorry. Couldn't help pointing out your hypocrisy. :P TriSwords: Looks good to me, but I suck.
  8. [web] Flash mmo?

    Possible, but not plausable. Flash is much too slow. A lot of single player flash games don't even run well on high quality. Look into Java.
  9. Buying an Eclipse... :) what to do with it...

    Quote:Original post by Ravuya ...setting fire to an orphanage... This gives me an idea... Seriously, if you're not drag racing, why bother souping it up? It's not like you can go faster than 60 MPH legally anyway. At least a nice-looking car can get you the ladies.
  10. Favorite Dungeons

    Probably not what you're looking for, but I liked the Mario 64 levels a lot. They mainly featured levels where you had to climb as high as you could, but if you failed and dropped to a level, you just had to climb back up. Minor setbacks are fun, as long as they're fair. Having to work your way through a dungeon 8 times because of undetectable trap doors isn't. Oh, and check out the Fallout levels. I especially liked the final booby-trapped vault with the robots. The basic idea, as far as I can tell, is there are a bunch of robot pieces, and when you turn on the defense system, they come back to life. I wouldn't know, because I killed them all beforehand. Making the playeer work their way back through a dungeon, especially back up or down, is a lot of fun, as long as it's not working the same dungeon back and forth hitting switches to open doors on the other side. For example, have a fairly interesting level, and then blow it up. Working back through the ruins of a good level, trying to spot shattered landmarks, with uncovered gold and monsters (goblins, golums, bats?) could be fun. Also, try checking out Pen-and-Paper RPG Adventures. You don't have to know the rules, just look at the dungeons, read the notes, and take note of interesting design features. They have to be great, because that's all they are, and they tend to be more inventive.
  11. PSP & Strategy Games

    TBS or RTS? TBS could work well, but I would reserve the RTS for the DS.
  12. You wear a blouse?? UANAL.
  13. Help me learn C

    cppgameprogramming.com has some good tutorials on C++. G'Luck.
  14. My monitor is only 15 inches!

    Wow, I'm only 12.5... Hey, wait, are we talking about monitors?
  15. Who's your favorite Street Fighter 2 character?

    Ryu, all the way. Chun-Li was just so susceptible to button-mashing... I always played SSF2: The World Warriors on ZSNES. Great game, and I've been looking for a copy of Alpha 3 for the PS, but the only fighting game I've played recently is Tekken 3, which is also good, once you get used to it. Oh, and Bushido Blade, but that counts less.
