So i revisited the idea of a gravity simulation using the bending of space. Im not sure if i ever posted about my past simulation but essentially I used a square grid to inherit gravity values from their neighbors. This time around, I'm using vector fields and the results are much better.

Hes doing 3D math on the cpu. It's much slower than using OpenGL or DirectX because those use the graphics card for their calculations.

I've been mostly in C++ for school lately but I decided last night to finally dive into some machine learning. Got a simple NEAT-based neural network running on pong (in java).

The top paddle just has it's x set to the s of the ball so it cant miss. The bottom paddle is the AI controlled one. The blue squares are inputs (paddle x, paddlex-ballx, bally). The red squares are outputs (move left, move right).

I've already met a bunch of other computer engineering majors.
I loathe meeting some computer engineer majors. They wear edgy tshirts to let people know they're into coding, and they have absolutely no coding experience. Some think they know java after just barely passing the required Java 1 and 2 classes.  Undecided
Probably because I go to Georgia Southern, instead of Georgia Tech Pointing

Thankfully the people I have met are like that.( I'm at Mercer)

I moved into my college dorm two days ago  Grin. I've already met a bunch of other computer engineering majors. I am so excited to start the year!

They probably just used a 3d modeling program like Blender or Maya and animated the walking by hand. Nothing special.

@ndnwarrior15 the thread is starting, that code just makes the load time so long, it appears the thread does not start.

I haven't tried this but to move a libgdx project to android studio I'm pretty sure you just import the libgdx project's build.gradle file and android studio should take care or the rest. What exactly are the problems you are facing?

Can you give a bit more information like does anything render and what is being printed to the console? Because when I run it on my computer the thread seems to be starting which makes me think it has something to do with your drawing and updating methods.

Check your delta value in your game loop. It won't be greater than one for a long time.

edit: never mind didnt see the "+=".

Just found out I passed all my ap exams    Grin. I got a 5 on my calculus exam and a 3 on my Macroeconomics exam. For those of you who don't know, AP exams are graded on a scale from 1-5. Most colleges regard a score of 3 as good enough for college credit.

Faux 3D rotation in 2D isometric game
<a href=";hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

I couldn't find this anywhere else on the internet but if anyone knows of something similar, I would like to know.

Speeding up the rotation fixes most of those ugly artifacts to something that is pretty usable.

Edit 2:
Also, I dont know if it is super clear but this is a completely 2d game.

Not programming, but I just took the AP Calculus Exam. I got a 5 on the practice exam and I felt really good about the real one so I'm hoping for a 4 or 5!  Pointing

Ok got the chance to test it on my home pc and it works perfectly. 144 fps stable. My tower has an amd cpu and Nvidia 660 gpu.

On my mighty work PC with an AMD Radeon HD5450 and Windows7/64bit, all it renders is the sky and the arm/weapon. It also says this:

Starting up SoundSystem...

I have this same problem but on a Intel Core m3. I'm running OpenGL 4.4. Will test on my tower when I get home.

Really cool concept. Pointing The player rotation is way too slow. If you speed it up, it would be much more enjoyable to play.

I have yet to implement the minimum spanning tree. If anybody has a link to a good (java preferred) explanation/tutorial on minimum spanning trees, I would be grateful.
21  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Any problems with Microsoft Online Store? on: 2016-01-24 19:18:59
I am about to purchase something from the Microsoft online store but I have been reading reviews about how many people have had shipping problems with them. The problem is, the sites that I went to to find the reviews seemed to be biased to only receive negative reviews (I mean why else would you review a store unless you had a bad experience with them). So I was just wondering how you guys' experiences with the Microsoft store have gone. Negative or positive reviews are welcome, I just want to know if the negative experience is the minority or the majority.

Some of the sites I went to (after googling "microsoft online store review"):
Reseller Ratings
Pissed Consumer  (if "pissed consumer" doesnt scream intense negative bias, i dont know what does)
Pissed Consumer Compare to Apple and Amazon
Site Jabber
Consumer Affairs


tl;dr: What are your experience with the online Microsoft Store?

Surprisingly, I updated my Android Game.

Change log:
- Changed name to Tap Tap! (from Tura)
- Even larger Dots!
- New much better icon
- Points are now granted based on number on dot. ex. A dot with 3 will give 3 points on first tap, 2 points on second tap and 1 point on last tap.
- Combos! Ten in a row is Double! 40 in a row is Quadruple!
- No longer lose a point on dot miss but will still lose time
- Various bug fixes and improvements

New icon:

Please try it out!

25  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Programming Laptops on: 2015-10-22 01:01:07
ok so I found this laptop based off of @MrPork's suggestion (it's the same one but with intel cpu's) and  i can't decide between getting the cheaper i5 processor (which is in the perfect price range) or just dishing out the extra $100 and getting the i7. Do you guys think the performance upgrade of the i7 will be worth the money?

Edit: Or should I forget the intel processors and go with the A10?
Edit2: I thought I should elaborate on what I will be doing with it. I will be mainly making java applications, Android apps, and web design stuff
26  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Programming Laptops on: 2015-10-20 00:20:30
Ok so im in the market for a programming laptop and I'm having some trouble finding some. I was wondering if you could guys could help.

- must be able to perform programming tasks easily
- preferably lightweight so I can take anywhere with ease
- around $550
- And it has to look really nice

Also, is the Intel core M powerful enough for programming?

that is just how the light went through that crack. It wasnt intended but that just gave me a fascinating idea  Cheesy
28  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-10-11 01:24:49
I went back to my lighting demo stuff and completely redid how i calculated light. Now lights are much more versatile and just all around better:

Edit: these lights are still shaderless btw. The new algorthim is basically the combination of the old one plus another one maybe I'll explain it later

New features:
- better light ranges
- better shadows
- colors mxing is still very intact and pretty cool
