whenever someone starts to mention names and forgets some people get upset. mogly said "and many others" because he wasn't going to list every user.

Cool, glad to see people are interested already! I might make a cutscene and do some art work to get people interested for when / if I launch it :P

Id still need to find a programmer to help me out though.

It's open source so if you have anything to contribute to it, you can. I doubt you have anything to contribute yet though. ;)

You can just download haXe here and choose whatever installer suits your operating system.

Don't worry about the open source thing, I just said it to point out that it's free to use.

Yeah, i get that a lot too. Once i went to a pub and got ID'ed 4 times, and one time the bouncer guy actually got me out of my seat to check my ID and use his special laser thing to make sure my driving license wasn't a fake.

It's gotten worse for me since I've grown my hair longer. The other day i went to an offy to stock me up with some beer, and the guy thought I was trying to use a friend's ID. I had to recite my full name and home address to him before he believed me, and I was ready to get out all of my other forms of ID to show that it was actually me.

When do you start uni, liam? 21st for me :D cant wait for freshers week!

general is more popular due to a larger target audience and thus creating more 'reg' in the general, in consequence the lounge get crowded and some people done get heard. so in total the flash reg is better, due to its more experienced members but still receives small quantities of spam

Mainly caused by you and mwmike :P And me and zrb a couple of weeks ago but W.E.

Yeah J1mp I'd be interested in doing that. If you make a thread I'll probably see it since I can usually get on to check whats going on every day depending on shizzle.

Wow castle crashers doesn't work online. I have to play like a loner or have people in the flesh. It even managed to freeze everyones consoles in my lobby at once : /

So you're saying the connection at my work is 48mb? I said 20mb because that is the largest available in the UK, and it's definitely megabytes not megabits. The reason the download speed isn't 20mb a second is because the connection from the user (i.e., the McDonalds I work at) and the server things is shared by others in the local area.. I can't remember the exact explanation, but it's not megabits.

Ubuntu for the win :P If only there was as much commercial support for Linux as there is for Windows and Mac.. it's unbelievable how much Linux is used in business, not just for backend stuff but a lot of movies special effects were done in Linux. I'm sure a Linux port of CS3 would be welcome with open arms by the development community.

ok thanks but at my college they say they teach you some basics, i think im learning one the the C languages. and then they give us a task and we can do it with anything we want, AS, BASIC, java, so it should be good, but iove only had a week of it some im not sure, theory is bad tho.

There was an awful lot of theory in Computing, and when you know quite a bit about computing already.. it's really dull. Sounds good that you can use anything to do the tasks, but there aren't many C languages - C, C++, C# (though that's not really used for 'normal' programming). If you're learning C, you'll be able to do C++ - it's just added full OOP (++ = OOP?). Have fun anyway :P

Haha, I doubt you'll progress further than the console.. you don't need to know how to create windows really :/ You need to learn variables, structs, loops, functions, pointers, file I/O, classes, etc before you bother with windows xP That's with C of course, Java may be different because that's a much more visual language and it's a lot easier to use windows and stuff because it's in an integrated environment (JDE) and stuff.

Delphi and Pascal are languages ^^ I've never used them but they're moderately popular. Do you know AS?

I think £100 spending money for the full weekend should be about enough but remember that you need to pay to get there.

I took £100 and had a teensy bit left over (though bear in mind that I don't generally drink alcohol whilst I do enjoy food and girly fruit-drinks).

Prince of Persia

Started playing Prince of Persia on the Super Famicom. I've already completed it on MD but wanted to replay it and heard there are new levels on the Snes version.

Anyways - did anyone ever use the 'block' button when swordfighting on the 2D versions? I've only ever used attack and the only time I get (or remember being) hurt is when the guard hits me before I get my sword out.

I studied game design there. I'm the only one of my friends to not get mugged.

I recommend Etsuko for cheap Asian food (its near the cinema), avoiding all modules with [lecturer's I can name over PM if you really want to know], and not going with Campus Lifestyle for second year housing.
