Re: Concept of a button?

Uh, yeah. Hmmmm.... Lua as a language has a few surprises to a classical OOP coder like myself. We have found some interesting... "defects" if you're of the mentality of Extreme Programming. Other people call them bugs. For one, it appears that the code we are using to create objects allows you to ...

Re: From project designing to code implementation

Hey there. I'll try to break it down as best as I can. Simpler physics systems ( AABB for example) tend to use less system resources and, in a few ways, are less complicated than more full featured alternatives if for no other reason that they can pretty much be done in a single function. --We check...

Re: Communication amongst team members

For conversations, I use Google Hangouts instead of Skype because it makes screensharing stupidly easy and tends to work well even when showcasing code. This way there is no need to copy paste something to show what is going on or where the person got stuck. I also use things like Facebook and Whats...

Re: Starting With love - advice

For your question on art, you would probably do well with having an art-minded person collaborating. Being aesthetically pleasing has little to do with ability to draw but you need someone that can curate what is good and what is not. For instance, this guy's portfolio is insanely good http://crowqu...

Re: Organizing your project

I do mostly A and B - maybe I shouldn't but I do. A quick sample of my workflow: --timer.lua local timer = {} timer.new = function() --code end return timer It is then required by main.lua so, akin to working with HTML, everything is referenced in one place. --main.lua timer = require "core/timer" T...

Re: Collaborative Coding Horror Experiment

And if someone really wants to troll, adding a --[[ to the first line of code alters the contents but not the lines :P

Re: Epilepsy simulator 2014

Wow this instantly crashes my computer. Tried it twice, no dice, it freezes the display server apparently. Going to check the code because this really should not happen. Running on Ubuntu 14.04, GTX650 Ti with proprietary drivers. EDIT: Apparently the way the lines are being generated is what is cau...

Re: Poll monday: AMD or Nvidia

Nah, AMD puts alot of work into their drivers, Nvidia is a bit behind too. I'm not arguing how much work they do, I'm questioning the quality. For the past... 3 years, AMD's proprietary drivers have failed to work with Gnome or any libmutter based desktop environment. They also completely dropped s...

Re: Poll monday: AMD or Nvidia

AMD is working on better Linux support as far as I know, they even released their mantle API for Linux. Yep. Doesn't change the fact that the open source driver performance is pretty bad and the proprietary driver support is awful. "-Oh, you want to use anything non-KDE/Unity? LOL Nope, not with ou...

Re: Poll monday: AMD or Nvidia

I chose AMD when building my computer since it supports Linux more than nVidia. I'm not saying that nVidia doesn't work well, and I have used it in other computers with Linux builds. It is just that Linus Torvalds himself has bad-mouthed nVidia. "Supports more" is a strong statement. They released ...
