5:17 PM
yay first map done
 
:( Today is the first 30C+ day this year, and it'll get to 35C (95F)
too hot
 
At least it'll be a high of 21C (70F) tomorrow
 
@CodeAssassin What are you working on?
 
@ClassicThunder Shmup for some friends.
 
5:31 PM
Shmup?
 
Shoot-em-up
 
Shoot em up
Ninjad
 
inb4 ToddersLegrande
(dammit got ninja'd before I could finish my inb4)
@ClassicThunder Eet es XNA
right now I'm looking for something to load my Maps from Tiled into my game.
Shouldn't be hard.
 
tiledlib
 
@ClassicThunder Does it have good documentation?
 
5:35 PM
kinda
its really simple though
 
@ClassicThunder Okay then - should be a breeze.
 
actually are you familiar with extending the content pipeline?
 
Here's one with like no documentation! nerdculture.org/2009/07/14/…
 
@ClassicThunder No - but all I need is the lib.
and I just generated it
@ToddersLegrande That was something for the early version of tiled :P so it probably had little to no documentation.
 
@JohnMcDonald Do they make houses igloos with AC in Canada?
 
5:39 PM
Following links takes you here.... which was updated 3 months ago
@JohnMcDonald do you guys even have electricity up there?
 
@Byte56 It's not in every house
:p
 
Guys. The help link is in the bottom right corner
I got your back
 
@ToddersLegrande This is easier
 
Sorry for all the notifications. I wish it wouldn't send those every time I edited.
 
@Byte56 Don't worry about it.
 
5:42 PM
Yeah, like that.
Hmm, I haven't temp banned anyone yet.
@ToddersLegrande Think I should try it, on you, now?
 
lol
I'd respond but I'm afraid
 
MUHAHAHAHA
 
Uh oh, the power has gone to his head.
We better all run for cover!
 
@Byte56 nooo maceeee winnduuu nooooooooooo
ninja'd(just a little)
 
5:46 PM
 
Talking to Americans: National Igloo
(You only really need to watch the first minute)
 
this is so chill it will turn you into an ice cube
 
@ClassicThunder How do I add a Content Reference that is missing
it doesn't seem to display....
@AlexM. YUS. The Isley Brotherssssssss :D
@AlexM. I think.... Amy Winehouse does a version of that. I'm not sure.
 
never liked her
 
5:49 PM
@AlexM. :<
 
@JohnMcDonald I can't stop watching, to be honest.
 
@AlexM. If you want chill check out Backmill or CMA or Eddie
If your into electronic music at all
 
Congratulations Canada for finishing the chunnel to China!
 
chunnel?
tunnel?
 
@ClassicThunder Blackmill has some good tunes. I was listening to them on Pandora the other day.
 
5:50 PM
The Channel Tunnel (; also referred to as the Chunnel) is a undersea rail tunnel linking Folkestone, Kent, in the United Kingdom with Coquelles, Pas-de-Calais, near Calais in northern France beneath the English Channel at the Strait of Dover. At its lowest point, it is deep. At , the Channel Tunnel possesses the longest undersea portion of any tunnel in the world, although the Seikan Tunnel in Japan is both longer overall at and deeper at below sea level. The tunnel carries high-speed Eurostar passenger trains, Eurotunnel Shuttle roll-on/roll-off vehicle transport—the largest in the ...
 
You guys really should move to the 24 hour clock.
 
@Byte56 I was just going to mention that one xD
This is fantastic
 
I love the kid @5:12
 
Nice
 
I like the guy at 4:45
 
5:52 PM
@ClassicThunder I'll give em a try
 
Good kid
 
Argh what is that dj room site called where you can ather people together and 5 or so people take turns playing songs that
There are 2 of them that are really good
 
Does anyone know how to add an existing content project to an XNA Project - I've done it before I just can't remember the steps :<
 
Man, how long does it take for a video to process? gamedev.stackexchange.com/a/58474/7191
 
Right click solution -> add peoject -> add existing -> project find your project
 
5:55 PM
Add a new project to the solution
and then either:
1) check your XNA's main project's properties - there might be something like "content project"
 
That movie ends with a doozy
 
2) add a reference in your main XNA project to the content project - go to step 1)
 
@ClassicThunder I think I've done that step
 
Deusey. Short for Deusenberg, a car well-regarded in its time. "Look at that car go! It must be a Deusey!"
 
Oh god the sc2 answers on the arqade SE are terrible
 
5:57 PM
the name of arQAde is terrible
 
@CodeAssassin And it didnt add it?
 
@Almo I had no idea
 
what was wrong with gaming.stackexchange.com
:)
 
@ClassicThunder It did but it needs to show up under the Content Reference folder. When I opened the project it had some sort of hazard symbol by it.
 
They wanted the letter QA in there somewhere I guess
 
5:58 PM
yeah >:(
 
@Almo that being said, doozy seems to acceptable slang for the dictionary
 
@CodeAssassin IDK I would create a new one and copy the stuff over at this point
 
I'm sure
 
probably easiest
 
I was just mentioning its origin as a point of interest. :)
 
5:59 PM
Definitely interesting :)
 
yup :)
 
I appreciate good useless trivia
 
hahha me too man :)
Like where the word Trivia comes from? It was stuff posted at the intersection of three roads in Rome, or "Tri via"
2
I wonder how much programming knowledge I could stuff in the part of my brain that remembers all this stuff
 
I finally managed to buy and try some white tea
 
@ClassicThunder It seems to be the only option
 
6:03 PM
Don't click the history on that ^^
 
"I’ve been employeed at Steeps/Oolong tea houses in Calgary for over 4 years. The Silver Cloud that we sell comes from a distributer over seas in Germany. "
I bought it from Demmers Teehaus which has its HQ in Austria, and failed to see the "Silver Cloud" anywhere else
might be the same distributor
 
@Byte56 Nice zoom.
I was thinking of doing that, then I realized I was too lazy.
 
Enhance!
 
I really wish we had better star moderation. :| I'm going to dig through MSO.
 
Don't be silly, you're a star moderator. Doing really well.
Maybe even a super star moderator.
 
6:12 PM
@JoshPetrie its been a little better since you've done cleanup. :|
 
Dumb thing stills get starred, though, and I can't figure out who did it. I also can't mass-cancel them (from the star log).
 
Yeah, it's been abused lately.
 
we should go star stupid things in C++ Lounge and see what happens.
 
See how they handle it?
Or just for funzies? :P
 
yeah, that's it. that's what I meant.
 
6:16 PM
We had this discussion before.
 
I think that other C++ discussion was a little different
that was a coordinated posting of Obj-C questions.
 
Jun 26 at 13:53, by Almo
hey maybe we could go do that to the C++ guys. they're really uptight
 
Whoever said that must have had experience with the C++ room.
 
by Almo
 
I've had experience with the C++ room, yeah.
 
6:18 PM
I think that was the point lol
 
There's a reason I'm here and the iOS/cocos2d room
though the iOS room is odd with it being half Hindi
 
ikr, I bet the Android room is half Pa...
whoops, almost did it again
 
room topic changed to Game Development: Game development discussion and other things. Please don't star trivial messages. [game-design] [game-industry]
 
starring trivial messages was one of the attractive things here
 
Can I star that notice?
I approve of this campaign for less starring. It would be nice if something stayed on the screen for more than a day
 
6:22 PM
@AlexM. Why? It's annoying, it floods the right pane with useless context-free junk.
 
it's natural
 
Fail Fast has 6 stars, is last on the list, and its only been 4 days
 
if the users here like starring trivial messages, that means a place with starred trivial messages is their natural habitat
 
The zeitgeist on MSO seems to be that better posts will be higher-starred than junk.
But we don't have the volume to make that happen.
So instead we get the junk.
 
true, Josh
 
6:24 PM
I like this junk
 
rly?
Why?
 
people just need to relax
 
Todders: just finished playing through your links. Recommendations to follow at some point.
 
@Almo Thanks :)
 
Main thing I've noticed: they all have backbeats. So I'll start there. :)
 
6:25 PM
Relaxing is one thing, but making the community look like juvenile is another. I think filling the star panel with useless messages results in a juvenile-looking community, and I think that is a detriment to the site as a whole.
 
Whatever you say :P
 
Particularly to attracting more experienced game developers to it.
 
hahah :) (replying to Todders)
 
I suppose I'll make a meta post about this later. I'm off to work now.
 
@JoshPetrie Well, I've been developing games for 30 years, and the looseness of the channel attracted me
 
6:25 PM
@JoshPetrie well, we certainly won't ever get a circle of Carmacks in here, no matter the quality of the rightpanel messages
a public chatroom is bound to attract inexperienced people first of all
 
@Almo I don't know that the looseness of the room has to go away. It's the fact that stars are treated like Reddit's karma system that's the problem.
 
Save it for the meta post, Josh is off to work.
 
People just use it like a +1 button every time they like something
 
I have to agree with that Todders
 
6:27 PM
We can fix it. We have the powa
 
@ShotgunNinja everyone loves calling me Pip :P
@AlexM. nice hat!
 
@TheProgramm3r Awh, I thought I started calling you Pip
 
yup, and @Blue said he'll improve it
just wait until then
 
Now we have to call you TP.
 
I'll stick to Pip, for the reason mentioned by ShotgunNinja
 
6:31 PM
still call me Pip :P
@AlexM. LOL
@Blue Im not @PythonInProgress anymore :D
@AlexM. from the English Language and Usage forums:
-picture too old to be shown-
 
OLD
 
bring something fresh to the table
 
@AlexM.
 
you should avoid @-ing to a message that's directly above yours
 
6:43 PM
ah
 
it's like quoting the post above you in a forum
 
i have a new one for u
 
pointless
 
-redacted-
 
I think it uses the meme wrong
 
6:44 PM
:P
 
I hope for your 13yo dignity, that you did not make it
 
i made the image
not the caption
 
you really suck at this :(
 
they're both fictional characters? I don't get it
 
6:47 PM
implying "your mom" isn't real
 
:/
 
which.... yeah lol
 
13yo humor
 
im done..... gb
 
6:49 PM
i've never seen that image. how is its meme supposed to function?
I'm fascinated by those things, for some reason
like Lame-Pun Coon. I like him.
I submitted ten puns to a pun contest hoping one would win. But no pun in ten did.
 
it's not a very popular meme
 
that was so insulting
 
but I think it's meant to make fun of gay people
 
@Almo oh you
 
6:50 PM
it's still in the history. I don't recommend posting things you shouldn't because you're about to edit them.
 
kk
a change of topic:
 
and "ok" is faster to type than "ok" because you can use two fingers to do it. Go ahead and say kk if you want, but you're not saving any time. :)
 
does anyone know who upvoted my question today?
@Almo and "ok" is faster to type than "ok" :P
 
up cursor edit mistake
 
you messed up on the post....
ok is faster to type than ok :P
 
6:53 PM
oops
 
dang it
I'll quit while I
'm ahead
but ok is still faster than kk
:)
 
i got 42 rep from one question :D
8 upvotes and 2 rep from accepting an answer
 
kk\
ok
 
and 63 from an answer :D
 
6:55 PM
ok is also less typo prone
 
@Almo kk if you say so
 
I do say so. I'm a gameplay programmer and it's my job to understand interfacing. :D
 
you guys can slow yourselves down if you want
I don't mind
 
If I cared about not being fast enough I'd try to learn VIM
:P
 
6:56 PM
gotta go fast
 
Zoom zoom zoom!
 
hey Code!
 
silly
 
@TheProgramm3r Hi
 
6:56 PM
everyone knows good programmers finish last
 
whats up? get my email?
 
@TheProgramm3r I'm pretty sure I did and responded to it.
 
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
 
ill check
@CodeAssassin "The Doctor"
really?
 
6:58 PM
@TheProgramm3r you sure make fun of people a lot for not being able to handle any criticism
Sorry for pointing out the obvious
 
@TheProgramm3r Is there a problem with that!?
 
Do unto others as you would want others to do unto you
 
@TheProgramm3r isn't the champ when it comes to taking criticism either
 
@CodeAssassin nope
@AlexM. thats what he said :P
 
6:59 PM
@AlexM. that was the point... I guess I could see how it would be interpreted differently
 
for a moment there I thought pip also screwed "that's what she said" up too
 
im going to go work on my game, got some mo' classes to write
 
@TheProgramm3r good luck!
 
cya CodeAssassin
 
7:00 PM
Screen shots :P
 
Cya Todders
sure todders, one sec
 
@TheProgramm3r okay gb
imgur is slow. use snaggy for screenshots if you gotta go fast
 
i dont :P
theres my player and monster classes
 
@CodeAssassin How is snaggy faster than imgur?
 
subclasses of "Entity"
 
7:02 PM
any normal programmer would write something like
if monster.isKilled() then show a nice message;
 
@JohnMcDonald Snaggy is fast because gotta go fast.
 
@AlexM. it will eventually
 
that does not work with what you have there
 
@JohnMcDonald It seems to upload images faster.
 
7:03 PM
vi. yeah man. I use that. (seriously, I do when I edit bash scripts and stuff)
 
eventually it will! @AlexM.
@CodeAssassin Get On Hangouts!!! :P
 
not sure I get that but okay
I'd change it now btw
getting near the end and then rewriting the code is so... 13yo
 
it is :D
i plan to be constantly changeing/adapting code
it IS a Github project after all
 
what would the world be like without github
 
7:06 PM
I'm still waiting for paste images to chat
 
@JohnMcDonald I use snaggy because you just go to snag.gy and hit CTRL+V
 
@ToddersLegrande You can do the same with imgur
 
hotkeys ftw!
 
I still paste in paint because because
 
7:07 PM
imgur I have to click the upload button, paste, click the image, and then I can copy the URL. If you don't click the image you need to append an extension to the end
 
You don't actually need to do the first step there, but the rest is true
 
@JohnMcDonald just tried it... seems I can paste on the home page but then I have to open the form and hit upload anyway? Unless I'm missing something
 
or you can press upload.... on the right :D
 
@TheProgramm3r you mean in chat?
 
7:10 PM
That doesn't allow you to paste images in
 
gotta go, watching Code's stream
 
@ToddersLegrande Weird, looks like they have changed how it's done. You used to be able to simply paste
 
@JohnMcDonald sounds like the need to hire @Almo the UXpert :P
<3 @Almo
 
hehe
 
7:41 PM
For a limited time, you can get the iOS version of Bastion for just a buck: t.co/WprFv2I2C9
 
pet peeve: unnecessarily shortened links
 
Shortened links are scary. No idea where they go.
 
just pasted the news bit from Facebook, don't shoot me :P
 
:D
 
7:57 PM
Snowden speaks: by revoking passport, US gov’t is “using citizenship as a weapon”
Meanwhile, former President Bush says PRISM was designed "to protect the country."

8:11 PM
if( m_pxMoodSystem && m_pxMoodSystem->GetMood() == HAPPY) { if( m_pxBrain && m_pxBrain->KnowsMood() ) { ClapHands(); } }
claps hands
 
@Blue I totally gave up the hat idea, there is no way I can put a question mark on a hat and it looks good enough.
doesn't this almost explain every one in this room?
 
video games started it yes
but right now my interest in AI applied IRL is on the same tier as my game development interest
 
@Gajoo Cheating at them did :p
 
@AlexM. I guess I'm almost in the same state.
