KingAl: Well, it's not really that simple. People really don't want innovation. When you come to a store and you see FIFA 3564, you know exactly what you're spending your money on if you're going to buy it. You know the experience. When you buy some generic FPS, you also know the experience, more or...

I think the biggest problem here is that the game industry is first and foremost an INDUSTRY- that is, it's business. What you're looking for is art. The difference between an artist and a businessman isn't in what they do but in how they do it. It's all in the approach. An artist doesn't care about...

I have to admit that I don't see where you're going with this. The fact that most of the gaming industry isn't being creative and innovative isn't really news, at least, not on this forum. Everybody here who wants to create computer games, has ideas and knows how it's done already does it. Myself, f...

A semi-related question I've come up with: Darwinia doesn't use cool and novel graphics, and could probably do all the same things with an older engine - like the engine of Quake 3, for instance. However, Darwinia's requierments are much higher than those of games that use the Quake 3 engine. I mean...

I believe he doesn't want you to understand the text, he wants you to comment on the site's design. At that, it's quite nice. I just don't like people wanting me to press on commercials - while I don't understand Lithuanian, I know that "reklama" is commercials, since it's the same in Russ...

Ok, I think I'll go with OpenGL - although I only use Windows, it's a good idea that my games will be available on other platforms as well. I'll probably learn SDL too then, but I don't understand one thing - SDL manages audio, so what does OpenAL do that SDL does not? Also, I understand that it's a...

Learning to work with 3D

So, I've always wanted to do graphics which are better than just windows, and finally I'm ready to begin learning how it's actually done. However, I don't really know where to begin. 1. What do I need to learn about 3D graphics and/or the hardware invloved before I begin studying Direct3D or OpenGL?...

- The Matrix (the first one only) - Dark City - The Truman Show - Wag the Dog - Hero - Mad City - Sphere - Interview with a Vampire (the book sucks, the movie rules) - Mother Night - The Devil's Advocate - Lots of Russian movies you wouldn't know. Maybe I'll come up with a few more. By the way, I've...

Hmm, I remember enough idiots joining in 2004...
Damn, I feel old. And I also feel pretty stupid for many of my posts back then, since I was, well, a lot younger.


P.S. Do I deserve a prize for keeping a link to beno's thread in my sig? :)
