I think everyone should just do whatever makes life enjoyable and worthwhile for them.
Well people would violate, kill, steal and rape much more than now, in that case ^^'

You are saying "its not that simple" like you are an authority on morality.
Morality is nothing absolute, everyone's moral compass is different.
Strangling a kitten doesnt have to be inherently immoral. Society would tell you so, however the universe or nature doesn't care and will not punish you, morality is pure fiction and not inherent. Animals don't regret killing prey.
So morality means something different to everyone; and this is mine; this is why I do not drink.

Also not sure I agree with the meat example. I eat meat every day, however the meat industry seems of course quite evil (as almost everything that tries to be economical will be, exploiting someone or something at some point to get more money). So by buying that meat you are supporting this which fuels it which seems wrong.
The only reason we do it is because we ignore the issue, we close our eyes, it's easier to ignore it ... and we all have more pressing issues.
I can't really... and wont make any excuses.

I'm not ignoring it. I just think you're setting up a false dichotomy between "stupid people who drink" and "smart people who never drink". It's not that simple.
It's a reflection of how society acts in general. And again you are ignoring it otherwise it should say "stupid people who choose to get drunk regularly" and "smart people who dont"


It is rude, but it's my honest feeling. Most everyone is a selfish idiotic ignorant asshole out there, and thats why this planet sucks so hard. Basically. I 'm actually a super optimistic and happy guy, but doesnt change the fact that this planet is pretty rotten.
Doesn't sound like an optimist. It sounds like a teenager who has it all figured out. We've all been there. :p
Just looked at your profile and turns out you're 26. Haha!
Hm using humility to... make your point ? Nice.
Yes I have indeed figured out that our society is pretty f**ked up. I didn't know it was supposed to be tough to figure out.


Again, a false dichotomy. What about people who watch documentaries? Or who only watch a half hour of "bad" tv a week?
Why would you bring up TV in a discussion about morals and then say what about documentaries ? It's like trolling. Obviously there is nothing wrong with that.


and yes I do feel changing your personalities using chemicals instead of will is fundamentally wrong. My opinion.
My only point is that the world is full of shades of grey, so you come off as a bit naive with your "the world is crap, why aren't people more like me" diatribe.
Thats valid and romantic, I just feel many things are without a doubt wrong and many other things are big indications that someone doesn't really care about morals.
And I never said people should be like me, I am not like agentd either, I just judge the way people are, there are lot of ways to be "better".
One is not supposed to judge themselves. I cannot say I am a good person, all I can say that I try as hard as I can.
Obviously I have a moral compass that I believe in, otherwise I couldn't engage in such a discussion.
The only one sounding arrogant and sounding like he has it all figured out, is you, who tries to use humility to prove his point.
I love to be wrong in life, I love learning, I like to fail and grow from it. So now, I don't have it all figured out, since I know I mature. But at this point I have a basic understanding of what I believe is right and wrong.

It does have an impact on whether you should use him as your example of a black-and-white, all-or-nothing "morality".
I never said morality, just intellectual.
It's just a funny bit pointing out the questionable logic in that behavior.
And again no it doesnt have any impact, because just because the media says there are some "allegations" doesnt mean shit. The media shows what you wanna see, not what is factually correct. So not sure why you didn't get my Michael Jackson reference. That's why I'm upset you bring that shit even up. It's sensationalistic entertainment news and has nothing to do with reality.

I mean microsoft is "only" absolutely shit, not really in relative terms... Meaning all OSs sucks unfortunately, Windows just sucks the least. Although I dont use another MS software besides windows and office and even office with the new top bar thingy bullshit makes libre office look even better, so I don't know

If its fun TO ME, we really got something here. Since I am critical and hard to impress with games in general, let alone a game I work on myself and get tired of.

@KevinWorkman

in almost all your answers, you are ignoring this statement of mine
First of all when I talk about alcohol I dont ever speak about the one beer at home. I only talk about getting "drunk".
People who are getting drunk and do it probably habitually. drinking a glass of wine at dinner, is not even alcohol to me. I wouldnt do it but I just dont like fermented stuff.


Not everybody who drinks is an immoral idiot, just like not everybody who watches a little TV is an idiot. It's honestly a little rude of you to make broad generalizations like that, IMHO.
It is rude, but it's my honest feeling. Most everyone is a selfish idiotic ignorant asshole out there, and thats why this planet sucks so hard. Basically. I 'm actually a super optimistic and happy guy, but doesnt change the fact that this planet is pretty rotten.
Also @ watching TV, that is borderline stupid too in 2014, just saying. Not enough ambition to do anything just turn on FoxNews or some reality TV show and just watch and shut up huh. yeah rude again, I just think its fundamentally wrong.

and yes I do feel changing your personalities using chemicals instead of will is fundamentally wrong. My opinion.

Are you really using Bill Cosby, who is currently being accused of raping many women throughout his career, as an example of intellectualism and moral superiority? I guess I don't really have to say anything to that!
Yes. First I would have probably avoided this argument but I saw that "news" after i posted it.
You are already labeling someone who wasn't even in court yet. Fair and just, I see. Just like Micheal Jackson huh. Also turned his skin white after singing that race doesnt matter and then oops his autopsy showed he actually did have vitiligo which he has been saying all along.

Obviously this has nothing to do with anything. What Bill Cosby did or didn't do in his private and sexual life has no impact on him being intellectual and one of the greatest comedian ever.

For everything there is, there is a microsoft equivalent.
from Silverlight to Zune.

they even got into gaming with the original xbox no one really cared about. all of that because microsoft is... well I can find too many insults here

they want to be everywhere, and they like doing a lot of things bad, instead of one or a couple things good.

thats why all their products are rushed beyond believe, hurry and make money, dont care about the quality
sucky xbox 360 architecture leading to the RROD and all the windows problems from freezing, locking and BSODs are just the most famous examples

microsoft is quantity over quality basically

so yeah @topic, a lot of their crappy products have these distinction purely so they are different

"Solution" is not even a technical term, its a marketing term.
But seeing as they use "experience" up the ass with the xbox, it doesnt surprise.
8  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Is drinking half a bottle of vodka safe? on: 2014-11-22 01:25:45
Alright.

I'm not going to write as much because... basically it's an uphill battle and everyone already has a stand.
All my life I had this discussion and although I am only 26 I get too tired by now.

I wish intensely that they were more people like agentd out there, but they are extremely rare.
First of all when I talk about alcohol I dont ever speak about the one beer at home. I only talk about getting "drunk". of course any amounts where you endanger or simply bother people can be negative.

I feel this planet lacks at this point a basic compass of morality, ethics, manners, politeness...
Doing something "fun" (screaming, decreasing logical thinking, puking) is valued more than being analytical, critical, question things, using logic, curiosity, ambition.


It is easier to do something mindless now, and not worry about the future, then to do something that is right
And people like doing easy things. I don't, I don't get the point of something without challenge.

Its pretty sad when people need to, or without much thinking, use chemicals to be able to lighten the mood.

The whole party and alcohol issue is really a mirror of society. Which is why I think most people suck. The don't value intelligence or justice. They value power, "fun", money.

Now what the fuck has justice to do with alcohol ? I fundamentally think that all drugs are morally wrong. Now there are medical reasons you shouldn't, there are social reasons you shouldn't, but personally I think it's just a matter of right and wrong. Willfully diminish my good judgement that good save or endanger someone, is wrong.
Right and wrong, morality, is not about directly influencing anyone, anyway. If you choke a stray kitten to death, thats wrong. No one really cares, especially if no one knows... The universe doesn't care, nature doesn't. But right and wrong are not about that.

"OMG he said choking a kitten is equivalent to getting drunk" - no. I'm saying morality is something people don't seem to care about really anymore.
and I'm not even religious D:

looking at all the news, historical events, medical effects, no one can defend alcohol really, all they can say is "well its not that bad if you don't do it too much" - you could stop altogether, but that would be harder.



Bill Cosby did a famous bit about him being confused how getting drunk can possible be "having a good time", I recommend it:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/qYsko_tc3a0?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/qYsko_tc3a0?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

But he also tried to be an intellectual his whole life, while people usually just try to work their dead end jobs and burp the loudest they can. Different set of goals in life :P



You dont have to agree, people usually don't, I'm just sad that in general our society embraces dumbness so so so much more than intelligence.

the difference on earth is air, so something that gets slowed down a lot by air because of its shape will fall "slower"

mathematically, something that has more mass will have more gravity itself and hence "fall faster" however gravity is the weakest force and you need giant amount of masses to even create minimal gravity. As you can see the whole moon only has that much gravity
11  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Perlin Noise clouds & CPU-Usage on: 2014-11-12 01:45:02
considering the effect that will happen on screen, to do an operation for every single pixel on screen seems really too much. let alone more passes

so I can absolutely understand why the industry wouldnt bother, there is easier ways with premade content, not having the cpu make everything
12  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: What is wrong with Jars? on: 2014-11-05 19:17:14
"Here is my game"

"what is this ?"

"its a jar"

"how do I use it ?"

"you have to install java"

"oh. what a hassle. Also I heard java is dangerous for your pc. and also slow"
(person installs it, also Ask.com toolbar, which is included. Person gets angry)

"ok now double click the jar"

"winrar opens."


People dont have java installed and even if they dont want no shitty jar.
You are supposed to hide technicalities from the user. A user on windows uses an exe. What language was used to code it should never reach the user.


13  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [Libgdx] Asset file availability on file system? on: 2014-11-05 19:13:32
Also:

Gdx.files.internal("Tahoma-Bold.ttf").path();
14  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [Libgdx] Asset file availability on file system? on: 2014-11-05 19:03:58
Ah we dont need the context really...

you need the absolute path for the file, gotcha (technically you should never need that... I think..., but if thats what you want, fine)
1  
Gdx.files.internal("Tahoma-Bold.ttf").file().getAbsolutePath();

ok so file() gives you a java File class. I do recall that if you convert the libgdx FileHandle to File like that on android there are indeed compatibility issues.
Just read the documentation thoroughly for this

I always wonder... OP stands for over powered... What does it stand for here? I can never tell...

Original poster as much as i know, so it is the one, who started the Thread.

Also "Operator" sometimes, mostly in IRC. Which is kinda analogous.
16  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: SJGL (Simple Java Game Library) on: 2014-11-02 15:21:06
I inherently disagree with what you are saying.
First of all the argument "I am just doing this for fun" is always a cop out.
Secondly people who actually need a library might google and find yours, which is absolutely useless, wasting their time.

Almost everyone of us thought, when we started, that all the available libraries were to complicated and "I can do it more simple"
It says you have 1 year experience. Its like a 14 year old math enthusiast trying to do satellite orbit calculations for NASA. Just stop.

As you all probably know, Advanced Warfare is coming out in a week and a half.
Nope didnt know, still dont care.

Is anyone getting the game on PC? If so, would you like to play together some time?
Nope and nope.

How do you guys think the game will turn out?
Just like the other ones.
Playing it safe as fuck, no risk, no evolution, and cater to the kiddies who like it.

24  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Clean code & Smooth development on: 2014-10-18 03:49:11
I'm of the opinion that the code should probably actually be formatted by SVN before commits/compares, but be automatically displayed in the IDE in the format the progammer prefers.
you just blew my mind.
25  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Clean code & Smooth development on: 2014-10-17 02:14:40
When princec says "Sun's bracket conventions" that means either of the two types that Cero demonstrated, yes? I certainly hope so, as I also prefer what Cero calls the Allman style, and would hate to think this would upset 99% of other programmers.
I do think so, all programmers I have met that saw Allman style and use the "normal" style just say "oh you do that, yea its fine"


Cero's first example is not exactly correct though, is it? Shouldn't there be more than a single space for the nesting?
I'm no expert, I stopped caring what is convention many years ago actually

@noctarius
ah yes you are right
1  
for (int i=0;i<10;i++)

should be
1  
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)

something like that


also why I usually dont use the if else shorthand:  if (blah ? then : else)
first of all I ALWAYS forget which one comes first ? or : , second its just harder to read. words make it more simple. its not like I have limited lines to work with
and I dont think having many lines in a file is bad in any way, you have an method outline on the side and cold folding...
26  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Website design? on: 2014-10-17 01:45:42
Actually... if you are not a designer and you dont have a vision, you might as well go to a place like "open web design" (http://www.openwebdesign.org/) and just browse and pick one

I'm sure there are more pages like this, its an old one, you get the idea
27  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Clean code & Smooth development on: 2014-10-16 01:20:06
it depends what organized and messy to YOU

I'm very big on human readability. Maybe you should post some of your examples and we give advice.
However opinions will differ.

This is actually java code convention
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
public class HardToRead{   
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  for (int i=0;i<10;i++) {
   System.out.println(""+i);
  }
 }
}


This is what I like:
1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
10  
public class EasyToRead
{
   public static void main(String[] args)
   {
      for (int i=0;i<10;i++)
      {
         System.out.println(""+i);
      }
   }
}

Apparently Allman style.
I think the proximity between lines make individual lines hard to read.

But there is also how to call variables and methods.
And I am a big fan of doing a simple thing is 3 or 4 lines instead of 1 hard to read one.
28  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Best way to iterate through ArrayList? on: 2014-10-15 16:02:26
The "best" way I think is this:

1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
for (int i = projectiles.size() - 1; i >= 0; i--)
{
   projectiles.get(i); // do something
     
   if (removeCriteria)
   {
      projectiles.remove(i);
   }
}


I call it the reverse loop, and it allows you to iterate AND remove elements in the same loop.
29  Games Center / WIP games, tools & toy projects / Re: Army Men - a 3do fangame! on: 2014-10-14 15:21:40
I mean yeah, that would be the process.

IF you do get a C&D or something, you would change the name and models that look too much like it and everything and there you go
