Re: PLEASE!! Opinions on app icon

I can't really see B or C as being anything other than a tie (is it also supposed to be a sword?) In general, these don't really work as app icons because they have too much small detail. Here's a good overview of good app icon design: https://99designs.co.uk/blog/web-digital/how-to-design-app-icons...

Re: What if I distribute an exe without cleaning the console?

If you turn off the console popping up - there is no immediately obvious way to see the print statement. However, I believe that if they run your exe with a --console flag, it will cause the console to pop up.

Re: Software engineering or Computer Science

Compsci is often more theoretical, but there's still a fair few opportunities for coding. The main portions of my university classes were pretty light on it (I had to write more essays than I would've liked), but we had fair few projects, and general programming classes on different topics. It just...

Re: Software engineering or Computer Science

So computer science doesn't involve any coding in the course at all? Also I've heard good of computer science, does any one have personal good experience/regard of/on software engineering? No, CS definitely assumes some knowledge of coding. Theory isn't too useful (nor can you prove your theory in ...

Re: Software engineering or Computer Science

Hi, I guess I'm semi-qualified to answer this question. I'm currently in my 3rd (and final) year of undergrad at the University of Cambridge doing Computer Science. I have internship experience doing both ML/AI research (which is the route that CS allows for that SE doesn't), and software engineerin...

Re: Can a neural network learn to play hockey?

There are plenty of implementations online. You can either follow the original paper: https://arxiv.org/pdf/1602.01783.pdf Or look at the many pytorch implementations: https://github.com/ikostrikov/pytorch-a3c You'll have to implement a lot of NN functions in Lua though, probably using something lik...

Re: Can a neural network learn to play hockey?

Well, on your advice I took a deep dive into AC3 and I can see it is a perfect fit and the next few months will disappear into research, maths and trial and error. Thanks for removing me from my family and life in general. Lolz. :=) Let's see what comes of it. Oops, there was a typo. It is A3C, not...

Re: Can a neural network learn to play hockey?

Yes, this is doable. Look at reinforcement learning and specifically TD3 or AC3 - it's quite a simple actor-critic model that works on continuous action spaces. If you already have bots, you could task the agent (or a group of them) to play against your bots or against each other.

Re: [Library] LövelyMoon v2

Hi both! That's really cool to see this work live on after so many years :) I'll update the OP as soon as I can.

My github name is the same as my username here and I starred the repo :)

Re: Love.js - A Direct Emscripten Port

The love file has to be in the same folder as the player until we figure this out. Happy Wednesday :) I attached a prototype thing I quickly whipped up that allows anyone to drag-and-drop a .love file into your player and it will run. It's incredibly ugly and I hacked together some code to make it ...
