Graphics with Python help please

Hi everyone. I recently got back into coding and I wound up coding the backend for an strategy RPG. Its written in Python 3 and working quite nicely, but currently all the "graphics" are in the terminal and I can't really progress any further without a proper way to represent whats going o...

Re: History books

Thanks for the suggestions everyone, I'll look into it. Not that I don't want to read, but some kind of "quick history" book would also be good. And despite not being American, I'm interested in reading about it, but generally looking for world history. I sorta just realised I was woefully...

History books

Hi, I'm looking for some recommendations for reading material on history. I don't mind if its online or a hard copy book, as long as it is easy to get a hold and inexpensive (I have a good library). I'm looking for something that will cover a good range of history (ancient to modern) fairly concisel...

Re: "Blogging" Discussion

Pretty much. Its amazing listening to business-types trying to analyse why their latest thing failed. A: Our advertising campaign wasn't right. B: I think it didn't have the right image, we should have it redesigned to better suit the target market. Nobody EVER considers that their 'latest thing' si...

Re: Torchlight

I've noticed that my alchemist always felt underpowered- I died frequently, despite doing a number of side quests and so being higher level than most of the monsters I would face. My vanquisher, though, is sailing through the game, only dying a few times. I think the difference (besides the vanquis...

Re: Pianists?

For those of you in search of sheet music its worth noting that MIDI files are just notation and can be printed to sheet music. Its not always perfect but you can adjust as you need to.

Re: the most depressing song: help me find it!

What do you want the song for? The most depressing song is going to depend on context, for instance "I love my Daddy" might be a cheerful song, but when played in a movie after the kid's Dad just died, well that is more depressing than a song intended to be sad in many cases. The most depr...

Re: How to play RTS games.

RTS games aren't easy to play. I used to be rather good at them but I tried to come back to TA after not playing for several years and to put it bluntly I totally sucked. While I can typically get a grip on a turn based game rather quickly, RTS games generally have a steeper and longer learning curv...

Re: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People

I'm quietly optimistic, I've never played anything episodic before (my copy of Orange Box is AWOL) so I'm not really sure what exactly that means. From the small bits of footage I've seen it looks like its going to remain quite close to its inspiration. I just hope there isn't any major sticker shoc...

Re: Resident Evil 4

The attention they pay to detail is uncanny. If you aim at someone in the head and they see you they weave to the side or put their hands up to block the shot instead of just side stepping. Some of the scenarios you go through at just amazing. Especially the opening sequence with the village and th...
