  1. members.gamedev.net

    ftp under windows 7 command prompt. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it with the proper case, and the forum password.
  2. members.gamedev.net

    I can't seem to ftp in with my gdnet credentials. Any ideas?
  3. Start screen...

    The super in the foot should probably be a bit darker - it's somewhat ineligeble right now. Other than that, pretty good :)
  4. Moving!

    Cool - also, very nice snow in Big white.
  5. The FDA war on cigarette alternatives

    So in the text they happily compare inhaled versions and ingested versions of Diethylene Glycol, and assume they have the same effect? Your lungs have different behaviors than your stomach - I can see this requiring studies to be allowed.
  6. My new website www.poopoogamer.com

    Quote:Original post by PooPooGamer Quote:Original post by djcityscapes I like the name poopoogamer. However you may question my judgment when you see the next game I'm working on: "Steaming Pile of Crap". Really, you'll see how the name fits when you play it. Cityscapes...my amigo...judging by your latest game name I think we were destined to work together! :) If your project needs music, don't hesitate to ask moi. And Churchskiz, thank you very much for your input. Cheers People. -Reid www.poopoogamer.com reid@poopoogamer.com This reminds me, does anyone know if HTML5 includes <sarcasm> tags? I think they really are needed.
  7. Photo thread (lazy op, very large pics indeed)

    Quote:Original post by Zipster Those are definitely some nice pictures. And my, you sure kept them at their native resolution, didn't you [grin] Don't want to deprive anyone, now do I? :) (Does anyone still have 14.4?)
  8. [.NET] Make objects follow circular shape

    The Do while cycle (which I guess is in method "Bewegen"?) shouldn't be a cycle - what happens is that while you're in the cycle moving and drawing the new positions, you're not allowing your application thread to go and actually do the work under the covers to update the display. Or process new input. Usually you'll use the timer to update the position and cause a drawing to occur. (as an aside, you may want to handle the onpaint event, and put your drawing code there, and just call refresh() after you update the positions. But I think it'll work if you just call the code you have inside the do while cycle from your timer)

  10. [.NET] Make objects follow circular shape

    two options that I see here - one, keep an angle and a radius on the objects, increase the angle over time and use sin and cos to determine x and y. Alternatively, you can do a more physical simulation, give them a speed and accelerate them towards the center. will be difficult to get it tuned up properly.
  11. Tech Demo Video 2010

    A suggestion - on the lookaround, instead of just rotating the camera around a fixed point, make it so that is rotates around a point below and behind the camera - it might make it look more natural, being closer to how we move our eyes around our neck. (details: it should rotate horizontally around a vertical axis behind the camera, and tilt up/down around an axis placed below and behind the camera.)
  12. Anyone ever wrote a letter to Microsoft?

    That doesn't sound like a bad request to me - I don't know what it's technical feasibility or cost would be, I don't work there. Since you're interviewing with the group, if you get hired, you can probably do the suggestion in person. If I had to guess, I think they're going to say that they'll probably use the time to work on new features, but you never know. In any case, you can also try to send it to Major Nelson. If he reads it, and likes it, he'll probably forward it to someone who can make it happen.
  13. Anyone ever wrote a letter to Microsoft?

    Without knowing what kind of information you're planning on sending, it's hard to point how/where to send it to. This site is a big entry point for feedback on products, if that helps And good luck with your interview.
  14. VB methods & syntax

    One more thing: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/default.aspx Has links to vb and C#, and under those there are multiple help docs to start learning either language.
  15. VB methods & syntax

    Opinions follow - C# also has its share of design decisions that come from it's alignment with C/C++, Java - Frankly, I've worked with both, and I find myself a lot less annoyed with VB .Net that C#. (I abhor case sensitivity. I also like having clues as to which end of a code block exactly am I looking at.) In any case, if you don't have an existing familiarity with either, pick whichever one you like. VB has a couple of disadvantages in my mind: 1st, despite Microsoft's statements to the contrary, most people do seem to think like Ravyne, even within Microsoft - so from a resume point of view, C# might look better. Second, the only situation I know of where VB does seem left behind by Microsoft is with XNA, which since you're posting on gamedev might be in your crosshairs. It is still possible to use VB, but only by jumping through some hoops. All of that said, though, I do think that VB has the better editor experience, and is a fine language to use to learn how to program. It is also quite easy to jump between VB and C#, since they have allmost full feature parity.
