Reading this thread makes me think of El Cid. Did he ever get a character in TNM?

Re: Please explain why to a newbie: 32GB (4GBx8) or 32GB (8G

I agree the choice barely matters. One thing to bare in mind regard Jaedar's point on upgrading is that when the next generation of DDR comes out, the old generation always seems to get more expensive (presumably because they stop making it).

Re: Will my custom Universal Constructor survive?

Seems pretty exorbitant to me but to each their own. I don't know what consumer protection laws are like where you live but I would assume that your 3 year warrantee would cover things like explosions.

Re: Inno Setup DeusEx.ini help needed

I believe inno setup allows you to package and execute built executables so you could simply write your script in whatever programming language you prefer and then bundle it into the installer to be executed on installation.

Re: Good Job!

In answer to your question about having the source code. We had all the scripts. We didn't have the code. The code defines a lot of the low level functions and core functionality (graphics, pathfinding, user input, etc). The scripts defined most of the game logic (weapon stats, mission scripts, ai l...

Re: Where can I find Sheldon Pacotti?

The shoddy VO quality is probably because the character was actually voiced by Sheldon Pacotti

Re: hi there! and a problem

haven't used unrealed in about 5 years but I have a vague recollection that you get the empty level symptom if you try and load a level with assets from a .u file that you're not importing or that doesn't exist. I also vaguely recall there being a separate .ini for the editor to the game but I'm far...

Re: Question about TV broadcasting PAL in NSTC and vice vers

As for the difference in resolution. A fancy way of creating a big image from a small image or vice versa is to do a fourier analysis of the intensity of the pixels over the image. If you're creating a smaller image you then throw away all the high frequencies that cannot be represented on the small...

Re: Question about TV broadcasting PAL in NSTC and vice vers

Regarding the different framerates: A possibly equivalent question you may ask is if I'm playing a game which is getting a steady 55fps but my monitor's refresh rate is 60Hz how does that work? What about if I'm getting 100fps. The answer to those questions is that every time your monitor goes to di...

Re: Chatty Log File

Actually tick is kind of middling in terms of severity. At least you know it's limited to being called once per game loop per instance. Compare that to a low level utility function.

Re: yo tell me what you think of my new economic videos

It's a piece of software for creating conversations for an RPG. The idea was to create a universal, versatile format with a useful editor to go with it but really I just work on it for fun so for the most part I work on features that are interesting rather than necessarily useful. Similarly I haven'...
