1  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2014-10-02 04:12:52
Got Catalyst drivers working on my laptop! (Linux)
Then spent most of the day playing games that didn't work or didn't work very well before.

Still would not recommend AMD. Get an NVidia card and save yourself all the pain.

Congrats! I remember what a pain it was to get my old laptop to work with my AMD card in Arch. However, keep in mind that you would still have to go through a painful process with nvidia. Besides, if you're going to play games don't do it on Linux. It sucks, but games and drivers are simply made for Windows nowadays. Hopefully that'll change....

Anyways I just got finished writing one of my science fair essays, this year I'm comparing different artificial neural network training algorithms. I think I'm the only person in my class excited for the science fair. It's super late, I need to go to bed. G'night forums.

I come up with ideas randomly. I find it very hard to just brainstorm an idea for a game. Imagine a game that you would want to play. It doesn't matter how hard to make or how complicated it is, just think of that and write down the specifics, then go from there.

Reverse engineered another commercial product. Once again, not releasing or using. It's really really funny though, how insecure paid applications can be.

Nothing. I haven't done jack shit today and I need to get off my lazy ass.

I agree with longarm. Make use of LibGDX, it's a great tool, and definitely check out dermetfan's tutorials. I kinda know him personally and he's a very smart and talented guy.

Oh awesome, it's neat that they've done that. If I ever work with Unity I can feel at home now Cheesy

You should spend some money and use visual studio + resharper. It'll probably boast your productivity by an order of magnitude.  You may even import an Eclipse Keymap (havent tried)

Even though it may not be possible to use with Unity, at least have it integrated, I totally agree. If Unity is fine with you just editing the source files in a different IDE definitely use VS and Resharper. I use that at my job and it boosts my efficiency to twice of what it would be without Resharper.

Guud luck! You make me want to deviate away from reverse engineering and get back into game design..
9  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Whays the story behind your name on: 2014-09-21 02:03:15
My father used to play an online role playing game when I was about 7 years old where he named his character 'Slypela'. When I was about 10 I got interested in the game Runescape and named my character 'Slythela' because I forgot what my dad named his, and thought it was that. Later I just shortened it to Slyth for any online accounts I used. I'm not sure why I named my profile with the 2727 after it; I really wish I hadn't or could remove it somehow. Ah me from 2 years ago, what a fool.

Learn some OS programming


Nice, how far are you into it?

I like to think I have just the right amount of not giving a f**k to handle the kind of "pressure" that Notch and Flappy Birds guy can't handle. Bring it on! Smiley

Ah we all do until it actually happens.
12  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [solved] Finding the distance between 2 rectangles on: 2014-09-16 00:48:45
You have a point, but in code euclidean looks better, no? In the end it doesn't really matter anyways Tongue
13  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: [solved] Finding the distance between 2 rectangles on: 2014-09-15 21:57:20
I like the Euclidean method better because it looks really tidy. Not much going on, and it's easily expandable to different dimensions. But whatever works Smiley

Figured out how to render a pseudo-3D box in a 2D projection using min and max values of a player. I'm rendering with DirectX over a C# form which is set up to basically acting as an overlay to a 3D game. Using my reverse engineering "skills" to mess with Battlefield 4.

I don't know what my GPU is... It's whatever GPU came with my computer, so...

Look up how to see what your graphics card is. Not that complicated, Google is magical.
If you don't want to that's fine but I think kev would like to know.

Average: 310 - Max 357 Smiley

Post your gpu too, that's a big part.

Same specs as I posted before, max 610 FPS, but I'd say the average was around 450.

Back from honeymoon in Rome, back to voxels!

Again, congrats on getting married! Wow I'd love to go to Rome.

I've been learning more and more about reverse engineering. Trying to replicate a license patch for sublime that I found online.

Looks like a really awesome game, downloading it now. You guys obviously put a lot of work into this, I hope it goes far. +1
21  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What other programming languages do you use & why? on: 2014-09-03 21:17:12
Gosh I've kind of lost count..
I use Java and Python a lot. I use a little Ruby but mostly Python for small system scripts.
Web dev stuff.

I'm starting to use C# mostly now simply because I like it so much. Java is of course still my main language though. After I get through my C# phase it's back to Java.
I'm learning C++ and ASM.
Lua. Brainf**k if that even counts Roll Eyes

And a few others that I can't remember. Honestly if there's something that I want to do and there's a specific language that I don't know that people generally use for that type of programming I'll learn the basic syntax of the language and learn it more in depth while I'm doing the project.

I must have touched, but don't know, at least 10 other languages.

Edit: hey look we have a language filter, cool.
Mierda.
It doesn't work for spanish.

Did some more research on reverse engineering, and managed to find enough memory addresses in my game to make boxes around enemies onscreen. The only part I got stuck on was the damn directx rendering with C#. I had to use a library called SharpDX and decided that I am never dipping into DirectX because making an external overlay was a pain in the ass.

No offense, but it seems like your classic topdown shooter.

Don't be prejudiced by the syntax. And if you don't like that, try out Clojure or scheme or Lisp Cheesy

Or ASM.
The pain.
The pain.

Edit: Ooh wizard. Yay.
25  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2014-09-02 02:08:37
Actually, Scrapy is pretty high level.
Nonetheless, it's a very useful library for sure.
26  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2014-09-01 21:28:19
Been messing around with Unity some more today and learning some more C#. Likely back to work on my LibGDX game tomorrow Pointing

Yum, C#.


.. I'm bored, okay?

Medals for everyone! Nickropheliac, +1 for making me laugh   Smiley

Edit: Just kidding I think Riven wouldn't like me promoting that sort of thing. Too late.
Please don't feed me to the Monster.

Um.. everyone starts somewhere and you've been using Java for only 2 weeks... You're not going to master it over night.
29  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2014-08-31 20:23:56
I've been playing around with reverse engineering games. In Battlefield 4, I've been able to discover all the players health in a server, position, and much more using C#. The only thing that took a long time was stringing together all the address offsets. I suppose I could go on to make that thing where you see all the players through walls and an aimbot and stuff but meh. I have the experience I was looking for.

All in all it's been a very unproductive week thanks to school..
