Re: Programmer Roll Call - II

I'm still visiting the forums from time to time. I don't know when I'll be able to work on the code again, but I do have the intention to come back at some point. I'm currently doing my second internship at Artificial Mind and Movement, so I'm really learning lots of stuff about game programming and...

Re: Getting gettext & translation into Allacrost

At first I thought that it could have been caused by the fact that an è is written in 2 keystrokes `, then e on some french keyboards, but then I realised that it was written inquiétée which really is a single keystroke on any french keyboard. (I would have written inquiète, we seldom see this word ...

Re: Forum spammers are back

I've thought about it. I even considered adding options in the administration panel in order to customize it for every site or even change it every couple of weeks. But then, spammers would just use another way to detect the textbox. I think it's better to keep them in the dark. I'm not even sure th...

Re: Forum spammers are back

You could always apply this small patch which should reduce the number of bot registration too. (Assuming the bots capture the confirm input field using its DOM name or id) This will randomize the name and id of the input field for each person that tries to register, so a bot would have to be custom...

Re: Forum spammers are back

What version of phpbb3 are we running at the moment? I could try to re-write my old anti-spam modification for phpbb3. It shouldn't be too hard and it fools most bots. (They could easily beat it with some thinkering, but just to beat a custom anti-spam filter? From a random forum -- I'm assuming thi...

Re: Getting gettext & translation into Allacrost

gettext returns a translated string of type char* no matter which language you are translating to. Let's say we're translating to Japanese. Does this stuff about ASCII vs Unicode mean that the char* return value of gettext in this case would not be printable by std::cerr because it would contain so...

Re: building in vs2008

You might have to build every dependencies from source using vs2008 as all the precompiled ones we have are compiled with vs2005. I'm pretty sure they have different runtimes and might be incompatible with vs2008. If you are having trouble getting it all to compile, you could always get 2005 express...

Re: building in vs2008

Yes, it looks like you are having a wrong version of lua or luabind. Try to download the dependencies from our website: http://www.allacrost.org/staff/libs/win/ Nope, not the wrong version of the lib, it's just that Microsoft updated their template compiling code, which breaks that line in the code.

I think he wants the camera to lag behind a bit and catch up to the player when he stops.

Re: Kiss branch explanation

Right now if you want to script the camera, you just have to create a virtual sprite, set it's position to 50,50 and then attach the camera to it. The camera will move to 50,50. If you want to then move the camera to the right, you move the virtual sprite to the right. If you want to camera to go ba...

This was brought up because there are big differences in the rendering on Mac and Linux, it might be related to that.

Re: Graphics engine does Pixel jumping

The rounding up or down to the closest bit representation of a float (remember that a float is an approximation of the real number) is not regulated by the standard. That is why different compilers round up or down differently. They all have the same representable numbers, but a division might not g...

Re: Recommending a rule

It's really hard to get UTF-8 to work right with Visual Studio, it seems it insists on including a BOM at the beginning of the file and if it's not present it won't change to UTF-8 mode. Unless someone knows a secret trick that I don't know of? I had this problem on my project at school, I was progr...

Re: Newbie's guide for compiling HoA with Visual studio 2005

Luabind needs to be patched for VS2008, check this site out: http://www.nabble.com/problem-compiling ... 54427.html

You just have to change 1 line.

Also, you will probably have to compile most of the libs from source on 2008.

What if we have 3 contexts. You can go from 1 to 2 and from 2 to 3. When context 3 is active, should context 1 and 2 also be shown? If there is a 4th context accessible from context 1. Should 2 and 3 be shown? If we take Roots example of "changed tiles" to the letter, how are context going...
