  1. Wow! eM Client is a great program. I love it! https://www.emclient.com/

  2. I think an interesting game idea would be to make a multiplayer battle based on these sort of unarmed revolutions in Ukraine and France. Call it "Civil Unrest". There would be lots of weird mechanics and unconventional weapons and strategies different from a standard war game.

      I like the idea would be different indeed.

      But it imply crowds which i think is tricky to do believable.

      Going for just players no ai could work ,small scale fights (rioters vs police).But still need a certain number of player , cant do with 2 this civil unrest theme.

      Hmmm maybe the player controls a crowd of people instead a single person?

      crowd behaviour could be like flocking birds, where each individual follows its own closest leader. "milling" as a neutral status. Other statuses like "agitated", "angry", "controlled", "rampaging", "subdued", with events like "attacked", "crushed", "baited", "dispersed", "whittled", "ordered". A large crowd is a number of smaller crowds that can affect the status of their neighbours.

      Individuals can migrate from one small crowd to another under a some statuses.  Just a first thought.

      It still shocks me sometimes how fast you code.

  5. Setting up a networked game now. It's very obvious we never could have done this without Leadwerks GUI!

  6. Leadwerks 4.6 Beta is up!

      I'm really happy to see vehicles update coming out 👍

  9. It seems the Humble Store has been a very good way to reach new customers. Lots of newcomers!

      To be honest. I personally did not even know Humble had a sale, however whenever I see a game / software I'm interested in, I usually scope around the net for any specials or sales someone might have. Got lucky. Discovered Leadwerks also worked in C++ so I went for it. So far I'm surprisingly pleased with how easy it was to get acquainted with it.

  10. I decided to go to Utah. It has the best snow and it's cheap enough I can be out of the country for months at a time and not feel bad about paying rent for something I'm not using.

      What part of Utah?

    2. Josh

      Somewhere around SLC close to the slopes.

      Awesome to hear! You will love it in Utah. Lots of great stuff here.

  11. I love these little indie horror games: 

     

  12. I am very surprised but it appears that declaring variables outside of any shader function results in a very significant performance increase.

    1. reepblue

      My guess is that it's not redefining values each pass but I wouldn't know it would preform better.

      I believe lua also behaves like that.

      GPUs are so good at optimizing shader code, I assumed it just did something like this automatically under the hood.

  13. I got my NASA badge today. I wasn’t expecting it to be a big deal but I am actually pretty proud of this.

      In my book, that puts you in the company of some very special elite people.

  18. With screen DPI set to 125% I am able to work perfectly well on my new 17" Windows laptop. This is great!

      It will be even better when a fix for that full screen issue is released. :P

      What laptop are you using?

      I've been thinking of buying a Dell G7 myself.

  19. The Leadwerks 3/4 design approach reached about 10 times as many users as the Leadwerks 2. Turbo will reach another 10x more.

      I just bought a vertical ergonomic.  Not sure how well it will compare...

  20. I think Discord is going to take a huge chunk out of of Steam. I can browse indie titles with confidence that a certain level of quality will be provided.

    1. Mr_SquarePeg

      Mr_SquarePeg

      Yeah I kinda agree with this.

  21. Discord launches well-curated store as Steam continues sliding into trash heap status: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-10-12-the-discord-store-launches-globally-today

    2. Mr_SquarePeg

      Mr_SquarePeg

      Just be careful - I have heard that the Vive Wireless adapter gets really hot. 

    3. Josh

      Josh

      It's slightly warm. Mine doesn't get hot.
