Landed my first heelflip down a stair set today... I also fell before the successful attempt and nearly shattered my knee. But I eventually got it, so it was worth it!

School just started and all them AP classes are piling on a lot of homework. Like, a lot.
Next time maybe....
5  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: How often do you code on: 2014-08-18 22:26:15
I haven't been coding much recently actually.. I need to though.
When I'm into it, I can spend 5-8 hours a day on it, though that is way too much. The people here saying that they spend ~12 a day programming are either lying or have no life.

Just got home from a vacation. 10 hour drive back, but it was worth it.
Just in case some of you missed me... nah  Wink
Happy to be back on JGO though.

Just to add on to his excellent answer, there is such a thing as a position vector. It really is the exact same thing as a point, however it does exist. (You may have said this later in the post, however I saw you saying that there're only directional/length vectors.) Incredible explanation other than that!

Well first you take a knife, scoop it out and put it on the table. Then take some rocks or what have you and draw a smiley face in the peanut butter. There you are!

oh.. you said 'G'if.

Use assembly if you don't like to use code that you haven't wrote yourself.

Better yet, binary.

Why not just buy a bunch of logic gates and build a computer from that, in order to build your own kernel, OS, and language?
Or wait... you might want to make your own gates.

Look for a loop somewhere that's creating a bunch of objects. You may accidentally not be exiting a loop, therefore it's making a bunch of things. Also, you might have something in an update method that should be in an initialization method.

*snip

Well you sound like you know your stuff, so I'm not going to disagree with you or anything. Admittedly this was my first time building a computer. When you say my RAM is slower than other high end computers, do you mean in terms of amount or in terms of actual speed? I don't know too much about RAM, and I've heard that 8 gigs is really all one needs at this point.
And actually, I wasn't doing anything while I ran the test and the score surprised me too. Maybe it was because I had just finished a session of bioshock infinite. I'm doing the overclocking this weekend.

We're hijacking the thread at this point, so if you want to continue this conversation (I do) feel free to send me a PM.

Indeed it is.

780 ti, i7 4770k, 8 GB of corsair vengeance DDR3, 150 GB SSD, 1 TB HD, Asus Z87 Pro Wifi AC motherboard, and an 850 watt PSU.

Ok, if you do it, you do it good.
That 850 Watt PSU is a lot though, even for your (overclocked) setup. Well, I guess it keeps the possibility to upgrade your desktop open when your PC becomes scrap over a few months when next gen Intel processors come out. Wink

How will it become scrap? It's not as if it will suddenly lose it's power. There will just be better processors out there. I got a better power supply because I may upgrade later to sli.

Cool! What specs?

Thanks Smiley
780 ti, i7 4770k, 8 GB of corsair vengeance DDR3, 150 GB SSD, 1 TB HD, Asus Z87 Pro Wifi AC motherboard, and an 850 watt PSU. I got a heat sink fan and a couple other peripherals, but that's the main build. I'm going to do the overclocking this weekend, because who buys a heat sink and 4770k to not overclock? It may be a little bit over the top, but I think I earned it from the work I did for it.

Built my new computer, been testing a few games with it for the past couple days. Absolute monster of a PC, I'm in love.

It sounds like you don't have the basics of OOP down, as well as Java. I suggest going back to square one and learning about OOP design.
19  Game Development / Shared Code / Re: XML Reader Classes on: 2014-07-28 00:06:35
No offense but... its kind of easier to just use someone else's wrapper. There is no point in rolling your own. Its very much a newbie perspective on things, to do everything yourself. I'm not saying you shouldn't, you really will learn a lot, but avoid rolling everything yourself whenever possible!

Why not just use Unity then?
When you create something yourself, you learn loads more.

Learning some more neural network stuff. Got back from a vacation to the beach. But most important of all: received the first bits of my new computer  Grin Very excited for the rest to come in.

That's what happens when you introduce a computer related problem to the JGO community; it magically disappears because we are just that awesome.

A month?? NO! God DAMMIT. Of course, right when school restarts. Maybe I'll get lucky the 5th time around.
Yes that's right. It's happened 4 times now in a time when I can't do it. In a row. Grr  Roll Eyes

I drew Slenderman today. It was an interesting endeavor.

Why not just program your own popup windows so that they show up in the OpenGL window? It shouldn't be that hard.

I just uninstalled avast for malwarebytes. Even when I set Avast to silent mode or whatever it still annoyed the shit out of me, being completely anal whenever I went to a lot of websites. Simply doing research was getting impossible because the thing was blocking everything.
This is why I use Arch  Roll Eyes

I wrote an article on bit manipulation, messed around with Sencha Touch, advanced on my L-Systems which I hadn't touched since my topic on it. You can make some beautiful things with it. Landed my first 5 stair today as well Smiley

Whoah chill man, I have nothing wrong with that. I realize that came out a little harsher than intended. Don't get me wrong, you did a good job.
I just got the impression that you programmed all the shadows, AO, and other effects yourself, but I might have just been assuming too much.
Nonetheless, you're doing a good job, and I'm sure you will continue to do so. Looks like a really nice engine you have going there Smiley
28  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2014-07-17 20:22:33
I made a staircase.

So you didn't actually make the shadows or AO, you just used a lightmap generation program to do it for you and then just mapped the textures to some geometry?

Netbeans has a pretty decent editor.
30  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Did you know? Hints and tips on: 2014-07-14 23:25:25
You can initialize a List/Collection of any sort in one statement using double bracket initializers, like you can with arrays:

1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
 Set<String> testSet = new HashSet<String>() {{
   add("valueA");
   add("valueB");
   add("valueC");
   add("valueD");
 }};


Useful!

Also, there's this really neat app that you can monitor your Java apps with called Java Visual VM or something like that. It comes with the JDK, look in jdkdir/bin/(something like jvisualvm).exe.
