  1. I was wondering if anyone is doing some work on retro systems, or systems with less than stellar specifications. Myself, i have SBTCVM, a base 3 computer simulator with a '9-trit' 6.5Khz CPU and 19K words of RAM. With its own compiler suite. not only is it my project, i do most of the actual programming within it. 😛 It even emulates a 4-voice waveform-based sound chip. What kinds of retro/embedded stuff are you up to?

    Whats your workflow?

    A developer's workflow is like a craftman's tecqiuqe, no two are exactly the same. myself: graphics: The GIMP, inkscape sound & music: audacity & LMMS IDE: Geany documentation writing: Geany + markdown plugin, occasionally LibreOffice.

    2D tiling engines

    tiling engines, both the more hardware-centric found on older systems like the NES, and the more modern software centric ones, are a cornerstone of 2D gaming. I myself have written a few tiling engines. such as this one i never wound up using: What kinds of tiling engines have you worked on? any off the shelf ones you've used? ever written one?

    open soure game engines

    Open source games have this track record of being a mixed bag. some look gorgeous (Super Tux Kart, some look a /teeny bit/ more dated. (minetest) several open source games use an existing engine for graphics (i.e. irrlicht engine), but not all of them. Others, like AssultCube, use mostly existing engine tech. and even commercial games sometimes use open source components. like Bullet Physics, and lua. As far as open source 3D game engines, i myself can only recall a few: blender's game engine irrlicht godot 2D open source engines are as common as sand nowadays, even i have worked on a few of them. such as my point and click adventure game engine, desutezeoid, and its XML-based boolean keyword logic. (it does have a crude script as well in the form of a slightly enhanced animation script system.) Are you working on/using a open source game engine for something?

    Your Computer's desktop

    Your computer's desktop is like your real one. It may be neatly sorted and covered with useful things, or it may be covered in useless things you never use. :) Debian+XFCE for me. Whats yours look like? :) yes i made that wallpaper.

    PCs, Laptops, and such.

    Discussing PCs & laptops. ^.^ Some questions to help get things going: What Sorts of hardware are you running? What do you use your PC(s)/Laptop(s) for? what OS(es) do you use? how messy is your computer desk? :p do you have a super-customized rig? any plans? Myself: I have my tiny Acer Aspire V5, with its 4GB RAM, 1 Ghz Dual Core AMD APU, with 512MB Kabini graphics running Linux with the XFCE desktop, ...and not much else :p I use said Acer for programming, art, making music, web browsing, IRC chat, and playing a selection of open source games, like minetest and supertuxkart. :p As far as plans, i wouldn't mind building a nice higher end rig, if i had the money that is. :p
  10. spent the whole day installing debian after my previous Linux install went and broke yesterday...

    "Yea sure you'll get work done tomorrow... april fools!" >.>

    3D platformers

    Anyone else into the venerable 3D platformer genre? As a kid, i grew up with many of the countless 3D platformer's littering the PS1 and PS2 libraries. From the legendary crash, to a certain yellow sponge. While my collection from my childhood is long-gone, nowadays my library contains a few: Mario Galaxy Mario 64 DS A Wii tie-in for Night in the museum: battle for the Smithsonian. Sonic Colors and hopefully more to come... What sorts of 3D platformers did you play as a kid? Any you play nowadays? any on your wishlist? Also, What do you think of the recent resurgence in the genre?

    wii games

    Id wish more people would try wii games. seems everyone is just afraid of motion controls... Most wii games don't have that bad controls (at least with a nunchuck) and some even support the venerable GameCube controller. Heck, they don't even all have motion controls to begin with. and some games use pointer controls very well.

    wii games

    Not many people give the wii much thought, nevertheless, those who own one know there are plenty of good games hiding within its library. I'll admit, the main reason i got a Wii, was that i was going to get a GameCube, but decided id opt for a gen 1 Wii at the last second on a whim. One of the things that surprised me was how many wii games have nearly no disk damage. Among other things, i also realized how many decent Wii titles are laying out there, despite people saying to the contrary... What Wii games have you enjoyed/recommend? Any particular favorites? any diamonds in the rough? some of my favorites: sonic colors: Man this one is gorgeous, and its a decent sonic game too. (GameCube controller helps) Mario galaxy: obviously. Epic Mickey 1 & 2 Decent cheap titles: Night at the museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (kinda short, but well-voiced action adventure) Hotwheels beat that: fairly standard rally racer, with some decent guitar riffs for a budget toy tie-in.
