AFAIK he plays in newest DOTA 2.
DOTA 2 and Dota 2 Reborn = are different game platforms ^^

DOTA 2 - is MOBA like Dota, LoL etc - its One map
DOTA 2 Reborn - is UMS Maps Hub - with custom players Maps (like source engine only for RTS games/maps)

Try switch him on UMS maps ^^

p.s Valve do big mistake calling maps Hub "Dota 2 Reborn" – it's confuse
if shi only call it "Source RTS Hub"..

Is he play dota original?
I recommend give him link to Dota 2 reborn – its something like war 3 custom maps
There are many fun maps

+ its better to play in “DOTA 2 REBORN Overthrow”
Its better original dota – lees unmanner in chat (in brain) + more fast
(15 min fast match – its really hard to play all day long in this ^^)

Ask his opinion about custom maps in Dota, maybe play with him in TD, puzzle games in Dota reborn etc..

Maybe problem in "hi think become pro gamer" - BAD BAD BAD BAD.. IDEA
tournaments have crap reword system - only 5-10 first places from thousands have money reword
all else 995+ ppl receive noting

Parents pay full price for studying as well as for the re-exams.
So happy - happy man ^^

pp.s if he really have a dream to make money from playing games
- i recommend try game streaming
it have more chances to earn money then receive them playing dota

By the way, does anyway know a good and simple occlusion culling algorithm and how to implement it?
Some long - long time ago i use frustum culling,
I get frustum scene every frame and check objects before render them.
(and call "get frustum" was a bad idea - need simple calculate it on CPU from Cam position
- its no so hard as i think it be, I use it because I don’t have reflections and shadows ^^)

+need use some sort Octree – scene grid (or portals)
+need Have dif types of models for far distant.

p.s but no one care about FPS if that not AAA: 30-60 is fine
and simples way to increase it: simple make less polygon model + less gpu calls.

I coded an ocean today based on this:]
Looks very Nice

Imho: it have some problems with light reflection
- it looks like alien goo (with sun light on it) like this:

when it must be someting like this

I don't know is it good advice but:
find more fast game then Dota
From fast game you tired faster, + they more rewarding for brain
-so after some time it will be hard return to Dota where matches can be 1 hr long

Does this help with game addiction – not really but it will help decrease time spending on it

p.s I can’t say that problem in Dota – you can find many same stories about
Wow, L2, LoL, Diablo 3, CS, even minecraft..
Flappy bird?

Irs not only adrenaline addiction,
its also communication addiction – like Stay all day in some Chat, Forum, social network
(and social network also have “find something new” addiction)
Man this world full of addictions Sad

IMHO making games should be fun.  Wink
It is - but without ppl feedback(fan's) after some time it become not such fun at all)
(some times its 1-3 month some time 6) - but its moment that will come

so it's also important to find at least 10 ppl

And JGO - wrong place for this - we have low ppl population + many make own projects and simple don't have time ^^
maybe tigsource and other forums can help

p.s its very hard make games for customers-programmers they see every bug and any mistake you do =)
pp.s And when your bored from one project - you always can start new one - so simple Wink

Receive account to try "SC2 legacy of void"
Downloading it 8 hrs ^^
Delete after 30 min XD (or how long its take for 1 mission of protos)

no comments... (very big opinion)
(i finish WoL and HotS addons in past)
simply - nothing new:
it's same as it was in "sc 1" - 17 years ago -
and many things even worse (except visuals and small user friendly interface optimization)

up: And that Storyline omg..
3 Race fighting against global evil
where I've seen it
War 3 – but in war 3 you can play for this fourth race
Global evil that appeared out of nowhere – no detail story about that.
And for some unknown reasons want destroy everything

and game  mechanics it's don't have any logic )

marine can shooting with rifle in to Aircraft
And Aircraft viking can't shooting back from Air XD
(it's not balance thing - it's lame "we don't want add more units")

p.s For story I can watch all cinematic on youtube + missions speedruns,
but I don’t want play in this
7  Games Center / Showcase / Re: Block Shooter on: 2015-11-25 18:39:44

Cube Shooter Game
Bad idea + many similar games on market
(servers not free)
(latency problems - hard to handle for first time)

Story Mode,
or multyplayer L4D clone - but not CS clone

start making server as fast as possible if making multiplayer
because you need wrap all data around it.

I achieved this specific effect through the use of 'portals'.
Long - long time Ago ^^
Pseudo Portals -
i use Plane portal image (not full render with perspective like in Portal game)
(Create camera and render to texture)

up: Do you use shaders?
i can't achieve properly projection Sad.
(hm, maybe i can use rotated camera with filled Z buffer)

13  Games Center / Showcase / Re: QQ Piano Midi Teacher on: 2015-11-12 20:43:40
In couple days rewrite gui(add new modes)
this visual midi notes is not teaching anything – really
you Learn more if disable visual notes and slowly repeat melody by yellow keys)
(copy - paste not so good "user experience" design ^^)
(Its not visual game - press right button)

So I want add new visual – more understandable for remember
+add random notes Mode – to learn sound of notes
+more gui hot keys (with auto repeat after end) etc

p.s i update my opinion after some time playing with application Wink
And some good ideas on practical usage – no so good as I thought =)

pp.s its not about press right buttons just in time
its about remember melody with notes and sound
and fluffy visual only harm + its hard remember something with this lines ^^
better will be like (E5 % 4) (E5 = four time)

but for this need find notes sequences and pack it - and it's not so easy
so for start i want add new field with more clear view - note Letter to it
14  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-11-12 15:34:23
I try This:

and that was not best idea ^^
so many colors - and this lines XD

leave it as it be before - in any case it's not visual clicker

p.s and this lines eating brain XD (go deeppppp in it)
hm it can be usable in some cases...

18  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-11-05 20:53:43
Is it just a midi player, or also a piano roll composer?
It's Player like Synthesia.
to teach Piano playing using Midi
You can Play using Keyboard - but can't save files (for now ^^)

p.s for teach Piano playing I find out only Synthesia
and some function I don’t like in it, so I make my own Wink
(Yes i want make changes in midi file and save it - but do it later)

Its ironical - because one from reasons that i make my own Synthesia is:
unable to change midi channel notes to auto play them
- and i don't have file save XD, but i have channel + line auto play for now ^^
19  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-11-05 20:36:07
Still Making Midi Player)

So tired Sad
Already want finish it and throw it on forum XD
(maybe someone needs it)
And start make Big engine refactoring – because if I start it - it takes couple weeks or even month+
(want: make windows to external format like XML with color, font change etc...)

Need make in midi:
+ wait note function – to slow process song
+ connect external midi device
+ fix small bugs – Some midi maps not loads

- GUI left as it is – no one care ^^

This seems very similar to pathfinding; can you elaborate on the differences?

find needed link)
21  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-10-29 13:01:47
Find this ^^
Visual VST Create tool (not sure is it global VST or only for Fl studio VST)
22  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-10-28 17:37:19
Yes.  JACK provides a cross-platform solution for routing audio and MIDI data between applications.
Nice Thanks )))

He's saying that to himself, not you!  Wink
23  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-10-28 17:03:13
What about JACK and JNAJack* instead?
Hm is she can create virtual Midi device?
For using external software.

*For midi support I use base java Sad
- i think making some Client-Host Api for external control of 3d party programs using VST.
(something like process attach but for Sound + by RPC you can send it by network)
Like receive from VST HOST sound data and send it back, send events etc..

I wish you the best in figuring out how to do this.
I so lame in Music - so even if i make VST with button - i don't know how to use them ))

This thread is for "what I did" not "what I am going to do".
Sry Sad
what I did - Short:
i connect Java with VST Host using Midi events and virual midi driver ^^
24  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-10-28 16:39:08
3 Days Trying write java VST RPC) (but failed)
RPC for external connect and send Sound Data and midi events back and front -
Why i what this?)

I Don't know...

find java lib jVSTwRapper
she process Sound Data
but for midi out no function - to use Send Midi data XD
(better say shi have it, but i can't make it work and because
she  in last Dev class of Lib - i think its only proto
i may be wrong)

don't want messing with c++ to compile VST and read tons of manuals.
(i try some but so many code need to write Sad and c++ omg - its personal...)

i take virtual midi driver

and send data ther - Why i need that?)
Because VST have better sounds (for my midi piano trainer)
and i fears VST HOST libs ^^
hm need try some – later
(because 3 days spend...)

So I make Send Data to Midi Bridge (with custom driver)
And Receive it in Fl studio – where I can set good sounding VST – not midi Synt ^^
Why i doing all this?)
I Don't know...  Wink

p.s have some problems with Preview Post in Firefox 41.0.2 (Fetching preview... "frozen")

However, as my skill has increased over the years, the possibility of making something that people might be interested in has weighed on my mind a bit more. I don't want that thought to become a motivating factor as it could potentially ruin the hobby for me.

Saying truly it's not about popularity or money –
It's about find some friends that have time to play with you and
who are interested in things that you do)

Yes we all lonely – and don’t have (even) 9 friends always online to play dota ^^
(or other games)

-So making games in this cases (like hobbyst) – about making friends,
not popularity or millions of money )

A while I worked on game projects in the hope to become famous. Very unsatisfying idea overall, in hindsight.

Now I try to work on games only when bored, because all hopes that I had linked to game development have failed so far. I still hope for appreciation, but unlike 20 years ago there are so many people making games nowadays, it's really unlikely that I can score in this competition.

I have same feeling and story bro(
- from every new line of code you become smarter and stronger, and less care about such nonsense ^^

-And i find solution (for my self)
it's really unlikely that I can score in this competition.
You don’t need to be on first place - bests game of century or make billions from one game.
You be happy having free time for game development, and maybe even making money from it for living
-so don’t make this idea harder(more complicated) then it is =)

Top secret: it is luck.

Its isn’t ^^

You same can go buy lottery ticket and win big pile of money.
But its not about game development
game development in 99% – is hard work
and only in 1% left - its luck

if you’re game sells low count– don’t wait miracle
do something with that – add new features, maybe listen stupid backers.

- Its always a Hard Work
Just remember that when you stoped and something going wrong )

>offtop about lottery
(and even don’t think about ppl that wait miracle and suddenly win lottery – they have own lives
When one man win lottery – from other side million lose it
what connects them? they all waits mirracle and its good that even one man win,
because they all can easely lose)
I would never create a game for other people because I don't like people. I've seen some horrible behaviour from backers of certain kickstarters lately.
Also – understand
Its not about making what other ppl said
Its about listen some other ppl that you don’t want to listen and even answer them.

And shame – don’t have solution for it (((

(ignore them or agro on stupid ideas – wrong solution,
And answer all – is hard but what else you can do)

>maybe I find some solutions when have such big real situation ^^

p.s and plz stop offtop about linux – windows ((
there is no solution for this dispute
29  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Sending data through Socket leads to lock-up on: 2015-10-17 01:46:16
After anywhere from 10 - 20 seconds my client seems to lock up when it tries to send data to the server.
Debug - suspend Client thread (when think its locked)
and watch place.

I remember - have something same with TCP
but not sure
as i remembered - TCP flush not always send data - hi wait some minimal size to send
i may be wrong

-- GAMESTATE: 60431
Starting to read data
Finished reading data
Parsing packets
Finished parsing packets
Doing stuff with packets
Done doing stuff with packets O:
Sending data to server...
Finished sending data to server!

And make something more trivial for test's - 2 java files (server and client)
*its really hard find error on server when game logic is stopped for some reason)

out.write(ba.length & 0xFF);

Lol - i send same len - first 2-4 bytes XD
And wander why no such thing from “Box” in Java api
30  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-10-10 09:23:29
Java Audio magic
How flush Data XD
Hm.. still have mini distortion Sad
But i think find new way
if set Line volume to 0
and play sample to end
it will be same like flush line for Listener =)

Anyone have better solution or something same?
