Just a bit frustrating I am not sure if I am the only person that is bothered by this but there may be others out there. We answer a question and they never get back and tell us if it worked on not. I don't want to be patted on the back, I just want to kno...

Strange question This a nomenclature question. private, public, protected and internal are collectively known as "access modifiers". So what are static, const and readonly collectively known as? I have looked and looked and can't find an answer. theTroll

Reference object assignment by value. Ok, a strange question, for some reason I have never come across this before, so never had to figure out how to do it. Say I have the following. public class MyClass { public int Value; public MyClass(int value) {Value = value} ...

Catching up... If you came in late, just make sure you post your questions in the correct subgroup. Also remember the first week is a general overview of the language, so you don't need to go in depth over everything. theTroll

Link to the workshop I may just be daft, but on the main forum page I can't find a link to the workshop. I have it bookmarked so I can access it directly, but not sure if everyone in the workshop had it bookmarked. Just thought I would bring this up so that people...

Snow Leopard on VMWare? If you want a laptop go with the Macbook Air. The Mac Mini, is just a "desktop" but a very very small one.

Snow Leopard on VMWare? Just get yourself a Mac Mini. Not too bad of price. Look on the Apple Refurbished site they have them now and then.

Ways to avoid the needs and the musts of global variables?? Yeah, I know, I was trying to explain the mindset. I pretty much try to never write code that I wouldn't want to use again. theTroll

Ways to avoid the needs and the musts of global variables?? I guess I will jump in this really quickly. There is a huge difference between writing a game (in which much of the code will never be used again), and writing an application that is going to be maintained for many many years. Maintaining code...

Stupid mac problem, please help Put in Disk 1 of the Mac OS disks. Restart the computer, press and hold C. Release the C key after the Apple Hardware Test appears on your display and indicates that it is loading. Test the keyboard. My guess is that it is going to fai...

[C#] How can I speed up float truncation? float value = 1.0023378734f; int truValue = (int)(value + 0.0005)*10000; value = truValue/10000; Give that a try. Did it quick so there might be a lil error in it. theTroll

Few Newbie questions and some C# code i can help a with 'c'. Don't overload OnPaint on a form. Will almost always causes performance issues. Overloading OnPaint on an individual control is fine, but on a form, just causes problems. There are lots of reasons you...

Windows OS: What the weaknesses that everyone talks about Most of the complaints are not about the Windows OS but about applications written for the OS. People don't follow the rules and bad things happen. Windows slowing down is not inherit to the OS but because of the applications installed. Same g...

I need level editor For most games that you design, you also have to make the level editor. It is really not that hard to do. The nice part is you get to control what is allowed in the game and what is not allowed. The bad part, is well you have another thing to do....

iPhone dev-- Hard Coding vs GameSalad vs Corona etc...?? If you want to work on the iPhone, you pretty much should learn Objective-C and learn how to use XCode. It is really not that hard. It is a bit strange when you first start but you can get the hang of it in no time if you know any other OO lang...
