you're coding it in AS3, aside from a couple of specialized structures (like priority queue / heap) it will almost always be faster to just use Vector or Dictionary (don't use Array, its just a renamed DIctionary with some extra functions)

Thanks for info guys. Almost always?? What would be a case where it wld be faster not using Vector or Dictionary?

And yeahhh. Thats true MSGhero. So i wld not need linkedlist. That is better for insertion in middle. I remember that from my data structure class.

Time to get started. Hmm. Now im thinking of how im gonna do collision detection. Bounding box or pixel?? I need to organize my mind. One thing at a time.

Well I still think alcohol is a stupid drug, and I will still continue to drink too much of it and give myself bad hangovers. :)

When using a special data structure like a binary heap, which may be slower than Array's native sort method with few elements but eventually becomes faster because of heap's O(log(n)) vs Array's under the hood sort which is probably O(n log(n)).

*pokemon/code joke*

I finally got around to getting American Psycho (the book) since I've watched the movie well over a hundred times. It's pretty good.

That picture has been around since like 2011 honestly, also, anybody who actively watches the show know the lore behind the fantastical world of Ooo is already pretty horrible.

Ooo really is a pretty messed up place. Seeing a shot of it from space doesn't help matters.

DotA 2 stronk

The internationals this year were really good. I decided to finally start that DotA 2 club, and I know a few people here play so you best get over here and be nice. If you play, head over to my NG profile and add me on steam. I'm not too bad, 49% win rate and just over 1050 hours played.

Man, TA is my favorite hero so I nerdgasmed when dendi was like 14/0 or something. Puck is my 2nd or 3rd favorite hero so I nerdgasmed even more when s4 laid down that million dollar dream coil.

I updated my github thing with some blitting stuff in case anyone is interested. It's tailored to my project which takes a spritesheet and json file directly from texturepacker.

Were the people in the Twitch chat spawning the enemies? Was only able to watch a bit of the video because of this shitty internet.

If so, that's badass.
