Re: Cherry MX

What kind of shop would have these keyboards available to test-drive? Any in the Tampa area? I'm not really considering dropping $100+ I don't have, but I've always been curious as to why people rave over these things. I've seen those fancy diagrams before but they mean nothing to someone who hasn't...

Re: Blender - which version?

Imperial Winter is not a Zero-K variant.

Sprites are images which always face the camera, they don't have "polies"

The spring engine doesn't care 'bout polygons. Polygons are not the limiting factor:

Your operating system and processor architecture should allow you to pick the right one I hope.

Re: Imma Nouncin Mah Game!

I deeply apologize when I announced this I didn't realize Firefox had broken the entire campaign screen which has all the options for selecting your team, planet, player/ai, etc. It is fixed now, and to boot I just added gravity!

Re: Just a brief idea for a mod

3 years is typically a more reasonable estimate for a consistent hard work put into a game to have it finished. If you think about something only for a few days before giving up you might as well just stop now. But if you do want to make games, really the best way to start is either make something r...

Re: Composer Available

Isn't everybody here indie? We definitely don't have publishers.

I would almost be tempted to commission a song for the main menu or somethin...

Re: Make me a moderator

I think beeing moderator wears some people out. Its basically a job, and if you go online for fun (which creating stuff can be) you will start avoiding the site you are moderating (except for your duty) and - one day ask yourself why you do this. So FLOZI, you aware? There was one time where I open...

Re: insert into file without overwriting

Thanks guys! I managed to get it working perfectly As food for thought, depending on what you are doing, it might be better to have a config file that gets included wherever the values are needed as a go between. That way you're not risking overwriting important stuff. And having one lua file write ...

Re: Seeking to hire a game engine developer

I also think its great that contributors to Spring can get a job offer for their work in an open-source community project. If I had the requisite skills/experience I would jump at the opportunity. I don't suppose you have any entry-level positions/internships for undergraduate students with expected...

insert into file without overwriting

So, my question isn't directly related to spring, but more of lua in general. Is there a way I can easily insert eg. a string into a file without overwriting the contents? I tried something like this: file:write(abcdefghijklmn) local bookmark = file:seek() file:write(stuvwxyz) file:seek("set", bookm...

Re: Favorite Webcomics

I both love and hate this thread, as it has reminded me of all the great comics I forgot about because lack of frequent updates, and hate it because all the time I wasted going through the archives instead of working on my homework D:
