Re: Team Fortress 2

The matchmaking system for MvM is absolutely horrendous! I don't like, but I can wait 12 minutes for a round. I guess everyone is trying to play and there just aren't enough servers (because there are apparently 4000 people in the queue). But when I patently wait, don't give me error crap like "...

Re: Any tips for a noob's code?

First of all I would like to thank everyone who replied. You've all been most helpful. I've made a couple of changes but the code mostly remains as in my previous post. Now, I'll be gone for a week so It's probably gonna stay that way for a while. If I get the time I'd like to implement the queue (I...

Re: Any tips for a noob's code?

Right now I feel like project is in a much better state. Stuff's all neat and organized. @Ben-oni Thanks for all the code, but I think it's unnecessarily complicated for this project. You've actually taken a step backward in design. Before, you had the meaning of a button pleasantly close to the de...

Re: Any tips for a noob's code?

Allright. after some work, here's the state of the project. I've split everything up into 3 classes Calc import javax.swing.*; import java.awt.*; @SuppressWarnings("serial") public class Calc extends JApplet { static double mem1; static double mem2; static char action; static JText...

Re: Any tips for a noob's code?

There's a common pattern for that: class someClass { private int privateVariable; public int getPrivateVariable() //used to get the value of the private variable. cannot alter it's value in the object { return this.privateVariable; } public void setPrivateVariable(int set) //used to set the value o...

Re: Any tips for a noob's code?

So far, I have this advice: 1. You should actually use an array of buttons instead of "one", "two", ... For example: a=new JButton[10]; for(int i=0;i<10;i++) a[i]=new JButton(String.valueOf(i)); 2. For the actionlisteners of the number buttons, since you are simply doing the sam...

Any tips for a noob's code?

I wrote a little calculator in Java, but I feel like it's a mess and that I've chosen the worst way to do it. without any further ado: import javax.swing.*; import java.awt.*; import java.awt.event.*; @SuppressWarnings("serial") public class Calc extends JApplet { double mem1, mem2...

Re: Games you can't remember the title of.

Can you help me find an old game I used to play like a decade ago? You run your little pizza shop from a top down perspective. You can manage the seating and the interior of the shop. There's this neat feature where you can build you own pizzas (I remember one of the possible ingredients was ants. c...

Re: How Do I Learn About [n]?

The fundamental concept you need to grasp to understand is the concept of the game loop. In its simplest form, this is just a while(true) loop that, on each iteration, runs any physics you need, deals with user interaction, and then draws everything. This can get a lot more complicated, but once yo...

Re: How Do I Learn About [n]?

I've just finished "Java a Beginner's Guide" by Herbert Schildt and have a relatively firm grasp of it's contents. I know how to make simple Swing Applets, but I still have no idea how I would go about making even a simplest game (Tetris, Pong...), or anything that is any more complicated ...

Re: KOTOR 2

Thanks, I just might pick it up again!

I played a kickass light side jedi knight, but there was a bug that made it impossible to progress any further.
Let's just say I raged a lot.

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hi,

My name is Marin, I'm 17 and I like programming and gaming.

I've been registered for a while and lurking for a while longer, just never actually posted. So here's it.
I'm probably sticking to the forum fora, posting and all, from now on... :D

EDIT: apparently the word fora is preferred
