Large images - speed issues SOLVED

In my game loop, graphics are constantly being erased, redrawn, and drawn onto the screen. I have commented out certain parts of this graphical part of my game and it does not influence speed of the game (admittedly there are only a dozen or so things on the screen and no moving things at this point...

Re: Apple emoji typeface: legal concern

Here is a StackOverflow answer. The tl;dr is that the black-and-white "Apple Emoji" font, which are apparently the ones used on the Unicdoe code charts, are free to use for nearly any purpose. However, there is apparently no license at all for the Apple Color Emoji font. Which you might b...

Re: Apple emoji typeface: legal concern

It simply says: product (no limitation, to e.g. commercial). This then means (to me, at last): any product (commercial / free / whatever) ... You've got 2 options, to be on the safe side: ⋅ clear it with their "Legal Affairs Office" (make certain, to have it *written down*, aka:...

Apple emoji typeface: legal concern

Hi all and thanks for putting up with my irrelevant posts (on a coding forum), In a game me and others are making, all of our images have been drawn by us. However, a handful of those images contain potentially problematic copyright concerns. It is to do with the use of Apple's emoji. And before we ...

Re: False positives; how to reduce chances of them occurring for your programs?

Can the original poster change the subject of this topic to include "antivirus" in the title? His post is very confusing until you figure out that he's talking about being flagged by antivirus software. As a first tentative step towards becoming a great big cheat, change your final game.e...

Re: False positives; how to reduce chances of them occurring for your programs?

I suppose changing a windows file to by-pass all securities would be a boon for game creators and malevolent game creators alike. As a first tentative step towards becoming a great big cheat, change your final game.exe to game.ex. create a batch file in the same folder rename game.ex game.exe game....

Re: False positives; how to reduce chances of them occurring for your programs?

Someone once redefined true and false in third party software. I had a very enjoyable time trying to figure out what was "wrong" with my code as a result. xD ouch! There's a better prank you can pull thou! If a language which ends statements with ;s is used, you can replace all the ;s wit...

As a developer, it would not be practice to use Linux alone. And anyways, I've already got >100K code to try and ensure works on an entirely different platform (if I do use Linux instead), so I would not use Linux :P

Re: False positives; how to reduce chances of them occurring for your programs?

That is because there is no solution except hoping that most larger business user have corporate version antivirusses with only signature scan enabled, or at the very least a severely toned down generic detection. If I get a report from an user and it has "GEN" or "HEUR" or some...

False positives; how to reduce chances of your programs being flagged by antivirus software?

Hi all, I have, as well as a lot of you guys probably, come across 'false positives': either in general day-to-day usage of your computer (i.e. downloading something which you're pretty darn certain is safe [haven't we all thought that ;D]), when sharing and receiving others code (be they "fini...

Re: Need help with 2d collision ASAP

I think every programmer has worked on collision of some sort for many hours, some of us for many days, getting it to work good and fast, everyone with their own perspective or take on it. I use to have lots of code for collision, spent many days and gallons of coffee working on it. I remember usin...

Btw, does it have to be the centre points of the sprites, or can it be say from the UL points on both sprites?

Re: Need help with 2d collision ASAP

I have implemented your code into the engine, BasicCoder2 ;) things are working great! There's only one issue which occurs when walking straight to a platform: it appears our character likes to teleport onto the tops of platforms at the moment ;) but once I get that fixed, collision should, for now,...
