Recap

March 6th, 2011 No comments

Alright, so it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything relatively interesting, and not too surprising I haven’t got anything yet. Posted a bit about my college work earlier, although that was barely what I could call content.

Although my original idea for somewhat of a racing game that I mentioned quite a while ago has somewhat dissolved, it’s not the end of the world. I’ve been playing a few games lately, mainly Bullestorm which, despite it’s somewhat problematic console port on the PC was very comical with excessive violence and profanity. Besides that, there was also the Crysis 2 Multiplayer demo which has been running surprisingly well, maxed out unlike the first game which still struggles to run on a HD5870.

Right now I’m going to see if I can upgrade my OSX installation to Lion once it comes out, as it might be a bit tricky seeing as I don’t actually own a Mac. As well as my iPhone to iOS 4.3 as soon as possible as I’m still running a time-bomb of 4.3 a beta which expires eventually, since my developer license expired back in February.

Right now I’m designing a little application for my Uni so that I can easily access online resources using my phone as right now the mobile Safari browser seems to be completely incompatible with the content management system the college portal uses.

Bits and Pieces of C++

March 4th, 2011 No comments

Turns out there were a few basic things I did miss out on in my somewhat decent knowledge about C++. Static variables, some more debugging info, non-ASCII handling, etc.

Regardless it’s still basic stuff, won’t be looking into anything like pointers and such until another two weeks.

One of my current tasks is making a simple Tic Tac Toe game, no AI or anything. It just happens to be that a few years ago I already made such a thing, complete with AI, difficulty, and a GUI along with a few other unnecessary features using C++/SDL. I’m not sure if I’ll use that or rather write a new one as I believe we’re still doing these things as console applications.
