Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: Unreal Engine 4 released - anyone looked at it?

    Posted 23 Mar 2014

    I plan of subscribing this Thursday(My Payday) and I am really looking forward to it. I hope it lives up to expectations.
  2. In Topic: [link] Epic radically changes licensing model for Unreal Engine

    Posted 22 Mar 2014

    I plan on grabbing this this week. I think it will be fun to play around with and see what's involved with a commercial engine. $19 a month is a nice price to pay for playing around with a high-engine and 5% of profits is really not that bad considering Unreal Engine 3 or UDK royalties percentage. I've been reading over the documentation for the Unreal Editor and the programming aspects, and I must say, I am really looking forward to playing around with it, and hopefully pursuing it into a bigger project.
  3. In Topic: Exciting Changes- Forum Restructuring

    Posted 17 Jan 2014

    Hey macosxnerd101, I really like the changes, but a suggestion since there has been a lot of forum merging going on, why not merge XNA and back into Game Development, as that would also give the Game Development forum some more active threads?
  4. In Topic: car accident

    Posted 12 Jan 2014

    I myself have only been in one car accident, which happened to be on my 12th birthday. My mother was driving in a Mitsubishi Pajero, with a solid bull bar attached. We where on our way to my grandmothers, following our tradition of cutting the cake at her house. It was a single lane(single lane both ways) highway, and there was not a lot of traffic that night, which was surprising. My mother turned around to the back seat to yell at my friend and I, by the time she turned around, all she said was 'Hold On, where about to hit', then she put her arm across my sister who was in the passenger seat. We ended up hitting a little Hyundai Excel, which is a little small two door shitbox. Luckily, no one was in the back seat of the car we hit, or they would have been severely injured. All in all, we all came out of it with minor injuries, except my cake, that for a foot into it :( R.I.P Chocolate Cake.

    I am now a panel beater, and I repair a lot of crashed cars, and I tell you, I've seen some pretty horrific cars come through, luckily all the occupants have walked away from. It really shows, that cars are not toys, they are dangerous machines that have the potential and probability to kill other human beings.
  5. In Topic: C++ Object Slicing

    Posted 4 Jan 2014

    Also you probably shouldn't be duplicating the member variables in both the Base and Derived class. If the variables are in the Base, the Derived class will have access to these variables like they are part of the Derived own class.

    Thank you all so much, all the information provided to me has been gratefully appreciated and without a doubt informative.

    Jim, the quote in my post is what eventually fixed my problem. I forgot that the derived class has access to the Base class' member variables, and thus, after removing the duplicate member variables, the issue of object slicing became no more and I was able to weed out some more pressing issues thanks to all the information provided to me.

    Thanks all

    I'm new here and don't know anything about programming.
    I would like to learn more but first I need a compiler.
    I would like to ask your opinion which are the current best or good working compilers for C++ out there, Paid or Free.
    I hope I receive a reply from you soon.

    That's not something we really discuss outside the mod group. Just keep your eyes peeled for new promotions as and when they appear :)

    Aaron, I appreciate you trying to enforce the rules, but I'm a big boy and can take care of the comments on my profile myself ;) Please let the moderators and staff do their jobs. There's a method to our madness, I promise.
