Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

We completed first coding sprint, yay! You can see results on our github page, I updated the .love file ( prototype1_iteration2_wip3.love ). Though don't expect miracles, it's still very very early, buggy prototype of moving, nothing more for now. Anyway here's what was done: 1) we found our way aro...

Re: Official "A Whiff of Steam", the LövelyRPG project topic

We all have limited time to work on this project. That's why, during last meeting we decided what to do. From now on, the development of Whiff of Steam will occur in occasional codding sprints, with multiple developers working on project at the same time, from late evening (CEST) to last man standin...

Re: Your Favorite Programming Language

That's one I wasn't expecting. A while ago, PHP used to be my favorite language... but I'm a little tired of the inconsistency and procedural style of it. However, for web work, that combination is still what I use. If you use php for web work, you might want to take a look at that (Haskell :P) sol...

Re: Your Favorite Programming Language

I think they're probably referring to the forced indentation (which I actually like) and the dynamic typing On the other hand, static typing is life saver if done right, i.e. if it's static type checking with type inference. For example in Haskell (which by the way also have significant whitespace)...

Re: Your Favorite Programming Language

I will add mine too, why not? Though I will answer differently from most people probably - that's I'm almost sure :P And I'm almost sure because, my current fav is Haskell - after all it's closest to what I write everyday doing math (and functional reactive programming with arrows/Freyd categories -...

Re: My old nemesis, math

Thank you for the resource, kikito. I quickly got an answer that seems correct . Now I just have to figure out, how the heck do I make this crazy "arccotangent" thing in Lua??? iirc in lua you only get atan, not acot - that's why I made you one with it instead of acot ;) Anyway, for sake of game - ...

Re: My old nemesis, math

I just need a function that would graph out like this [...] the line switches from negative to positive at exactly 1/3. Does anyone know how to express that in math terms? Maybe something like (2-2*math.atan(x-1/3)/math.pi)%2-1 ? You can also use other sigmoid instead of math.atan, might be faster ...
