Re: Volcano Star - simple sandbox game

Just finished it, very good gameplay. You should continue adding some side quests , it was quite disappointing to build a big base just to finish the game directly after that. This is too good of a game to keep it that short. Controls are quite hectic with only one tool button. Would greatly improve...

Re: Practical engine limitations

A couple of times ive hit the ram limit of my graphic card while drawing a ton of pixels in one frame. Oddly this caused no high cpu usage or frame drop. Simply said the card run out of ram and closed itself. Further rendering several mb of text at once may cause your graphic card to completely lock...

Re: Love game speed

It stands for delta time, the time between two frames. To make this absolute clear: Without using delta time your game will only work on your own computer. Different computers have different refresh times ranging from 30 to 400 times a second, so in the worst case it can run 10 times slower for othe...

Re: Forward-scrolling racing game - Storing the track

I dont understand where segments would be helpful here.

This table had like several thousand entrie...
