That kite demo is just wrongg. A kite free of its line would fall to the ground. Smiley

The underdog (AMD) always favors open standards, while the market leader (Nvidia) always prefers push their closed solutions. FreeSynch versus GSynch is another example.
3  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Libgdx How to task/thread/wait the start of the screen. on: 2015-03-04 18:11:10
An easy solution would be to throw away the first frame (just render a black screen), and start everything running on the second frame.

Only 3? What about Imagination, ARM... This thing is supposed to run on all platforms, isn't it?
5  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: The Khronos Group announces "Vulkan": the successor to OpenGL on: 2015-03-04 11:22:11
Well done, AMD.

Hmmmm. It's not evolution if you have a goal.

Opiop, you ARE a real game developer.

On the subject of design documents, my worst work in my enterprise environment has always started with a fat design document, maybe even written by me. The more effort spent on the design document, the worse the end result.

My best work has been seat-of-pants stuff where I code in a frenzy of intuition, racing to finish the project before management notice and stops me.

This looks promising!
9  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: java.awt.Point class in Android on: 2015-02-21 23:41:38
An Android app needs java.awt.Point like a fish needs a bicycle. There is no way to get AWT running on Android. If there is no way you can get rid of this class from the code snippet you are using, then you are simply using the wrong snippet of code.

Most IDEs support:

//to-do: note to self

I should use the feature more often...

What motivates me? A shiny new thing.

Java has NullPointerExceptions, so it must have pointers Smiley
12  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: Too complicated? on: 2015-02-18 16:11:30
Is chess too complicated? And do your target players want chess complexity?
13  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-16 21:53:55
Thinking of changing my nick to "entity". Or "sprite".

Hey... I've passed 300 downloads for the desktop version:

Windows-64: 202 downloads
Windows-32: 53 downloads
Linux-64: 37 downloads (it's catching up on Win-32!)
Linux-32: 17 downloads

I'm up to 160+ downloads for the android version :-)
15  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: What's your day job? on: 2015-02-16 11:28:55
I provide second-line support to developers using various enterprise APIs. I manage schemas and datamodels and build toolsets for these, and I write user guides.
16  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-13 11:14:32
The big bucks are in soul draining enterprise application backends. Emo

 Huh I love my enterprise backend work!
17  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-10 21:34:47
Got WebGL and OBJ loading working on my website. Nothing to demo yet - I just got some googled code working.
18  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Bit pissed off at uk school system... on: 2015-02-10 19:09:47
My daughter is a UK teacher, I hear all sorts of horror stories.
19  Discussions / General Discussions / Re: What does this return for you? on: 2015-02-10 11:14:07
The GPU names on my benchmark site are from GL11.glGetString(GL11.GL_RENDERER):

What drives me absolutely nuts is AMD's naming scheme: "AMD Radeon R9 200 Series" could be a 280, 285, 280X, 290, 290X... It makes my AMD results basically useless.

Erm... Intellij IDEA?
21  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Unit Testing: Waste Of Time? Discuss on: 2015-02-05 19:49:58
I find unit tests helpful in my day job where I build frameworks or utilities for other people. The other side of my job is developer support and we have tests there too, to ensure our samples still work with the latest server code and API changes (which are always "backwards compatible"). Hell, I even have some unit tests for my user guides, just to check the code snippets compile and run without errors.

I find it very hard to write unit tests at home. In my games I have almost no unit tests, except for set pieces like AI, collision detection and so on.
22  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-05 11:38:27
Either you test, or you don't. It's a boolean! (I know there are many different ways of not testing, but all of those are compatible with testing too).
23  Discussions / Jobs and Resumes / Re: need senior lwjgl dev to polish up some my project (~5 classes) on: 2015-02-05 11:33:18
but now I'm trying to mitigate the use of lwjgl wrappers.

...but aren't you effectively paying someone to write a wrapper for you?
24  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-05 11:29:10
Of course TDD is rubbish, but it is less rubbish than the alternative. My tests regularly catch errors and regressions, and writing the tests improves the initial code too.

Fund-raising for JGO: sell god-levels in the JGO Store.  Smiley
26  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Valentines day plans on: 2015-02-04 22:32:50
Sleep gets in the way of coding.
27  Game Development / Newbie & Debugging Questions / Re: Check if ArrayList Contains String on: 2015-02-04 11:14:34
Perhaps the string is actually "AESTHETICS ", ie includes whitespace. Print to console including quotes to see this. Or its "AESTHETICS\r" resulting from splitting a windows text file by '\n'.
28  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: What I did today on: 2015-02-03 20:13:17
Got beaten up by the DITA-OT Ant build scripts... again.
29  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Java Certificates on: 2015-02-01 16:01:54
@ags1: did you learn anything new?

I learnt loads of stuff, but forgot most of it immediately after passing the exam. The certifications remind me of driving theory tests - masses of fiddly details, but no substitute for practical experience. I studied english literature at uni, so I'm happy to take anything that gives my a little credibility in programming.
30  Discussions / Miscellaneous Topics / Re: Can Word Lists be Copyrighted on: 2015-02-01 15:42:04
A copyright notice is not required for a work to have copyright. Copyright is a right. If the word list creator said that the work was a poem, there would be no question it falls under copyright. A work like Finnegan's Wake barely follows the rules of grammar and includes many non words, but it was copyrighted. A dictionary is a list of words and is copyrighted. So I would say any arbitrary collection of words is copyrighted.

For extra credit: shuffle the list. Does it still fall under the original copyright? I think not Smiley
