If you don’t find no one.
Personally I will recommend princec as most experienced.

developers cost some money. 50-80$ an hour

8-30$ poor countries with low income
40-90$+ with income 2k+ / month.

Quality = random)
its all human factor.

First i think that samsung its gogole)
but after write couple lines of text understand that its samsung)

so phones it totaly same - same crap)
(have rebrand miramax phone =) its good but after 2-3 OS update, they stop updating OS)
The only differens in diferends brends: exept phone spec

is Android updates and popular software, hardware support )
and some times problems with drivers (but its rare)
(i have some ^^ in my phone need manualy add pid USB to PC to connect in debug mode)


if someone have same problem - Documents and Settings\User\.android\adb_usb.ini

# 1 USB VENDOR ID PER LINE.
//Bla-bla google you dont add noting(((
0x1C9E
0x9E18

2 my devices) - find this number with any software that show connect USB detail


if you don't care about Android updates then for same money you can buy phone with better specs not from google.

I suddenly understand that it will make more time to logical write what I mean relative position,

relative position == buttonReally Y pos(+165) will be same if text have 1 line or 10

it's a mission-based (and tile-based) Ninja game

Nice Smiley
But Imho - idea don’t works like this Sad (for Ninja enemies)
Need or make FOV of Unit very low – to any effect of footsteps and fog.

Or push idea forward and make Turn base FPS with ninja tricks =)
Something Like "Superhot" game.

Or make good bloody like Hotline Miami game )
13  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Crash - Corrupt File, Months of Work Lost on: 2015-03-21 08:45:58
I do backup old versions of my code as zip files with time stamps.

Lol i do same in past xD

and now i think that i can make from all this zips git rep ^^

"Implies a lot of skill"

Its only looks like that,  in Git technical you need 3 command main command:
Commit, pull, push + (some times git clone and git new rep)
That’s all)
I Use for win Tortoise git

Commits for local server ,so if you want: you even don’t need register something in internet simple local backup.

Yes if you fears corrupt files, zips with data better then Local corrupt rep.
But you can same zip copy of local rep)
And in one click make copy in internet

So with git you can faster find file history then using zip.

I've never used Visual Studio, but does it have a directory specifically for compiled files. I know you decompiled a 4 month old version but you must have compiled it in VS since then. The "output path" location must have some files.
i think you'r right, when you run project VS compile source somewhere in temp folder

but Imho: 2k lines is not big and you write them,
so to restore them you spend half – full day, max 2
its no so critical as you think it be.

I also lose some code in past Wink
(some times start rewriting something and after 2-3 days understand I do something wrong, sometimes rewrite all from scratch, and yes I start use Git for own projects only 5 month ago ^^ so yes, I understand you’r problem)

And after so many time I now know code is not important – if you write him self, you can do it again and with new knowledge you do it even better =)
15  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Crash - Corrupt File, Months of Work Lost on: 2015-03-20 05:45:24
Try use some restore software - many off them,
I use this – not perfect but fast and sometimes help = PC INSPECTOR File Recovery
Also i try many another software – they find something but file full of byte mass.
so don't find what i can recommend.

Also searching in google, ppl recommend this - http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm
I Don’t try it self)

Also last recovery option is use some sort old DOS utilities for recovery – they are best but search spend so much time

https://johncarlosbaez.wordpress.com/2015/03/17/planets_in_the_4th_dimension/

In fact, they’re moving in circles in 4 dimensions.

Some time ago i wrote article about physical 4D and more dimensions spaces movement.
http://www.java-gaming.org/index.php?topic=29604.0

So technical planets that moves in 4 Dimensions is wrong (or we can’t see that ^^)
(with planets interact 4 different forces is ok)

All others formulas looks ok (because I don’t understand what they talking about XD)
17  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: Does Java have 'pointers on: 2015-02-20 22:08:19
Shi have it but they hidden in JVM.

if you need something similar like pointers you can use (without harass with JVM and unsafe)

Object that hold variable object - i use it like pointer for primitive types

Yes its some crap code but technical its pointers)

   public void set(byte b){this.b = b;}
   public void inc(){b++;}
   public void dec(){b--;}

   public String toString(){
      return new String("" + Obj);
   }
}


Up:
Pointer must be able to carry out arithmetic operations and read DIRECTLY from the computer memory and not from JVM memory

You can change memory that use Java and all that fluffy things with pointer memory Wink
its called Direct buffers

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/java/nio/ByteBuffer.html
allocate mem and then play with unsafe, - get mem address place allocated, and change values there)
but dont try move ther JAVA objects - i try its funny but crapy

Objects become out of mem space GC JVM and when GC called JVM try delete them
or relocate them when mem usage grows
so data stay same but objects marks as deleted
and when you try use them JVM crashes =)

it have some tricks for using obj, but need prevent all this crashes Wink
18  Game Development / Game Play & Game Design / Re: What's The Best Way To Define Items? on: 2015-02-18 10:23:48
say I have 1000 items, that would be 1000 classes.

You will be lost in this 1000 files )

need separate changeable values like NPC HP, Weapon Speed and DMG
and make 1-2 Files with Data that create Needed objects.

Also if you will do big project and have many ppl in Team that can change this values
They need to be separated from code
To external data format
Like XML, Excel, etc

(also its prefer separate all game Text external, for localization, etc)

p.s I use Excel to Xml and then to Code ^^
(because XML multy language format)

(for Excel i Use jexcelapi)

(also XML can be parsed to RAW data for fast load – but no one cares: its from couple ms to 1-2s load time for small project ^^)

Up:
I used something same -
this system is mega cool but you don't need it for small project )

you can't so simple create, alone, this 1000 different game object Types with Quality different texts, imgs, animations, sounds etc
(it will take so many time)

and you can implement it in any time later, so use time for something more real like playable game mechanics ^^
19  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: What's your day job? on: 2015-02-16 09:08:10
In past Software game developer in indie company XD
(even Team lead some times, but its hard call Team lead when you have so small team like 3 ppl)

(its where specific indie company shi don’t make games for self like all used to think,
Shi takes order and money - to make games for client)

Games ar HOGs - http://www.bigfishgames.com/download-games/genres/15/hidden-object.html
making them is very - very boring

but even for them - budget is 300 000 $ per middle game (Collector's Edition).

now quit (3 month ago) - tired, small salary, and want some time for coding for self ^^

up:
i feel self wrong because don't say "small salary" how is it
- i simple even don't want call that number,
but so many ppl ask self how much is "small" that I talking on )

15 000 $ per year - and you work for 3-4 different ppl ^^
- like Project Manager make Timelines
- then Like Team Lead split work for parts and watch to ppl make it in time
- Make tech art (like all animations for testing game mechanics etc)
- make Game animation except very difficult
- programming own timeline work Smiley
- and all that for 2-3 projects at once

From advantage this work:
I worked 6 hr per day 5 day per week – not 8hr, simple can’t - mind blow up after 6 there.
And 1200$ per month no so bad in place where I leave. =)

From cons:
it's very tiring.
And no chance to payment grow up there Smiley

p.s Also (chief still owns me for 2 month payment and don’t want give it back XD)
20  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: convert expression for use with vecmath on: 2015-02-16 08:41:29
It doesn't. For example adding vectors v1 and v2 with v1.add(v2) stores the result in v1

   public Vec2d add(Vec2d v){
      ....
      return this;
   }
   
   public Vec2d add_Res(Vec2d v){
      ....
      return v;
   }
   
   public Vec2d add_New(Vec2d v){
      ....
      return new Vec2d(...);
   }


p.s if you care about performance make all calculation separate by primitives) - without GC affect

1  
2  
3  
4  
v1.x = v2.x + v3.x + 10;
v1.y = v2.y + v3.y + 10;
or
(v1.add(v2).add(v3).add(10)) //but this hard for big math expression

Aged 17 to 20?
25 ^^

Thanks for explanation of the term "half a living".
(sry some times I not fully understand abstract terms like this)
future It’s so sad theme (

But you right.
1 kid
2 beer
3 travel
4 Roof
5 food
6 savings
7 family entertainment
8 good education for your child


So many possibilities (what throw away for you’r dream XD)

p.s That normal throw away something, you’r never will have time for all you want.

This why I say:
‘that discussion have evil roots with in”
Shi don’t give nothing exept billions excuses why you don’t do what you want,
You must do this.. and that.. and wait..

you must bla-bla-bla

So selfish Lie XDDD

All I want say – I say:
“you don’t need billions money or years free time or wait something
to start doing what you want to do,or at least try it out”
 
that’s all)
And this thread is all about this – we all make what we like and sometime share it ^^
23  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-12 13:32:54
You might not realise but 90% of indies aren't even making a half a living, let alone billions of dollars.

I know Sad
I even know that 95%+ app don’t make even 100$ dollars for all they living time.

Quote
making a half a living

this is big discussion that have evil roots with in )

Tag “normal living” is different for all people

For someone its normal have 10 airplanes and if hi broke one that stop bi normal living for him.

For someone normal living its food and warm house and time for doing what hi love to do)

I don’t say that someone throw away all his dreams or something like that.

Simple take a look what you’ doing and think
do you really need billions to start doing what you want?)
or you can start doing it today.

Think about this now - because when(if) you make billions after 10+ years throw away you’r dream,
You may understand how many time you lose.

p.s Its not for someone direct its for every one and for no one ^^

pp.s About Markus – nothing personal but its so painful watch so creative man have dreams, ambitions
– want create interesting and unique games
and now hi have billions
and doing absolutely nothing – sitting all day playing games and watch streams.

Sorry Markus – nothing personal but it’s all I can see.
24  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-12 13:11:09
I just need to get our mortgage paid
I don't say that want making money is bad,
I even fully agree with you that its normal want make money for quiet life.

I want say that if you’r have money for normal living – billions dollars don’t change you’r life in better way)
(I most cases =))

And many ppl waiting this biilions for start making someting that they can start doing right now.

most fun quote for me:

3 man studio in a bedroom.
XD

Imho: Its good, but totally wrong,
I have mind some time ago: that change all my life and rotate it around 360 degrees.

What you will do if you have billion dollars, how they change you'r current life?
-What you will do? except waist you'r time drink all days, watch tv, or something like that?

If you’r like programming you’r be sitting like now - all day and watch in monitor,
Do you really cares if you sit where you are now, or in Beverly hills?

Same with painting, music creation and many else creativity
You already can do 95% things in world simple in place where you are.

You already where rich!!!

p.s you may think that you hire ppl and they start making games for you,
but you’r wrong its terrible idea
– without good team and experience you lose so many mental health
– because this stupid ppl do all totally wrong ^^

The main idea is: for what you need that billions?
For start programming, or do something that you can start doing now?

Its illusion – that receiving big money you start doing something
that you CAN DO BUT DON’T WANT TO DO NOW?

Nothing will change – but with big money
you have even bigger chance that all become even harder to do
– because you will receive even more ridiculous ways to waist you’r time XD

Can we Flame about Unity ?)
i have experience with it and i know many bugs in it =)

If you want easy classification about Unity -
its good engine for hand made lvls npc, etc

but when you want make anything procedural
Unity take you for balls and go ride Roller Coaster ^^

one from problems http://blogs.unity3d.com/ru/2014/06/24/serialization-in-unity/
have more but don't remember now ^^

Up:
p.s IMHO: my recommendation about Unity : if you care about mental health - Don't USE UNITY! XD
(you can play with it, but don’t make games on it)

Take better Unreal.
(I am not sure about last Unreal ,because not use it, but I know company (and use prev versions Unreal engine),
also i know their quality standards so chance for something same stupid architecture bugs is minimum there
+ they have full open source - and if community find critical bugs: shi can fix it, even without devs)

I'm a big fan of the art in the background of the log in page

background paint using TwistedBrush filters)))
(as i can see)

but not that big of a fan of the differing image quality in various objects in the game world.

y, so dark - maybe make it same as BG =) simple add light colors and use filters from same TwistedBrush to make it funny and magical ^^

I may or may not have lost interest in the project which I cannot re-obtain...
