    This is a question on a past exam. Can anyone help me find out the answer? which of the following approaches should be used to keep a game running at 30 frames per second and why? 1/ set up a time object and trap WM_TIMER events in the applications WinProc. 2/ Use a function such as GetTickCount() to read the number of milliseconds from a hardware clock that have elapsed since the system was started.

    Genetic Algorithms - help

    maybe if you would read the post then you would realise that he's trying to revise for an exam and he's have tried to find the answer for this question but can't find it on the net. So maybe if you had something better to do than trying to be so bloody smart, then we'd all get somewhere. Sorry for that rant, but does anyone have any sensible answers. Nite Anonymous Poster x

    AI questions

    have a couple of AI questions here that I need to find answers for so I can revise for an upcoming exam. what are the main difference between the goals of the general AI research community and those of the game development community in the pursuit of AI technology? learning has recently become an important topic for research and debate in game research communities. discuss the main reasons for this and the potential problems associated with dynamic learning within games.
