  1. Maybe? I never claimed to be god status. I am a human just like you. I don't go around making fun of you though, I give you that respect even though you really don't deserve it from me. I was just defending my point of view, since you always got to throw up the past. The past is gone, the past is no more. Stop living in the past.
  2. We're talking about mobile games here. iOS vs. Android, iOS is more profitable. You get more installs with Android, but ad revenue is very low percent compared to purchasing an app. .NET recently went open-source from being proprietary and also running on all major PC platforms. I wasn't stating it was the first open-source platform. You are pulling words out of your ass like you always do when you don't try to understand other people's point of view, you put your own viewpoint on them and force it your way. Then you change your avatar picture or something else to try to upset the poster. This is how Robin used to treat me, too. It just shows who is right and who is wrong in the conversation. The person who knows they are right, doesn't resort to those behaviors, deep down they know they are wrong. Microsoft has the biggest marketshare. C/C++ are low-level programming languages, but when it comes to fast programming: .NET, Java, and a few others are in that space. Visual Basic 6 back in the day was king. This is why so many people refuse to move on, they liked the simplicity of it.
  3. @'Sekaru': > Of course Java is shitty but its by no means on its last legs. When .net developers start getting paid as much as Java developers, give me a shout. If you use Swift you should honestly just kill yourself, it'd be a lot less painful. Tbh I cba to read your paragraph on how you justify making a Flappy Bird clone so I won't. I don't either. Lazy Rocket was a mobile game test. I never distributed a game like that before and wanted the experience. Rory was the one to do it, I just followed in his footsteps and learned from him. It really is for experience and not cash. That game made absolutely nothing. It costed more to make it than we got, we actually lost money making that game, but we did get business from it from commissions. I don't want to go on to debate about your opinions, but Swift has potential to be a good programming language since it works well on iOS, which in my honest opinion is the only platform to distribute your games on. Android is flooded and people don't pay for good games. Swift is open-source and new as well - as well as .NET. Both are great languages, Microsoft is king of programming languages and Apple copied them. http://swiftlang.eu/ .NET programmers get paid a lot. Visual Basic 6 programmers get paid a lot. You know why? Microsoft is the king of business. Everyone uses old apps that were written in the Visual Basic 6 days and most of them, don't want to upgrade. They just want improvements made to them. I work at Wal-mart and guess what, every computer is Windows. The freaking self-checkout is Windows. I seen an error on it one day while I was working. Every business uses IBM and Windows. Java is nowhere to be seen.
  4. We all know Java has had its last legs. With .NET being cross-platform and now Apple's new programming language Swift also being cross-platform. The two tech giants are going to just demolish Oracle as a side note and just a opinion.. ;) The gaming industry is not ruined by mobile games. It is ruined by terrible game designers trying to pocket the normal person who don't like videogames. They play videogames to kill time when they are on break at work, at parties, and other aspects of life where social media doesn't fill the time kill moment. Basically, what game designers who have this mentality need to understand, is that you need to realize this niche of people. Hardcore videogame players do not like mobile games and likely never will. Even if you make an awesome game for mobile, they like controllers/physical parts to interact with. These "gamers" are living in the golden age of gaming and gaming has long passed that. The gaming industry as a whole is about to have a giant change in the next 5 to 10 years (next console generation). We're going to go to streaming and eventually touch screen will be the norm. Games will still come out that use keyboard/mice/controller, but really, there will be multiple ways to interact with games in the future. It won't be standardized to really use one form or another to play a videogame. Videogames do not have to meet this golden age definition. I am personally a fan of the golden age of videogames, where games were tough and had the tutorials built in to the levels, because people were treated as humans and not idiots. Although, it is likely we will ever go back to this time again. Honestly, if you were born later, you would hold a very different opinion about videogames. It is the human bias. You can never say your opinion is better than anyone elses'. Humans like it easy. Those who grew up playing videogames in the golden age will like games to have the same effect as they grew up playing, but are these games truly better? I don't think so. Our definitions change from each generation.
  5. I am going to upload the binaries to Drive, give me a few minutes.

    @'Link': > I heard there's supposed to be an announcement for FF7 coming to ps4, I'm assuming xbox one as well. I don't know much about E3 though. Nah. Square Enix is a Sony sider. They usually put all their games on Playstation only, but they did release Final Fantasy Type 0 on Xbox One, and Kingdom Hearts 3 is coming to Xbox One.
  7. Helladen


    FInal Fantasy 7 remake vs. remaster, is that the story and dialogues are also going to be redone from scratch. They likely will have full voice acting. This is going to be the biggest remake ever done by Square Enix.

    E3 is a waste of time. It is only for companies that have a lot of money to blow, you can advertise better just by streaming your game, and all that jazz.

    Eclipse Worlds

    You can download the binaries with the source on GitHub. They come with the .EXEs. If you want the binaries in a download, please go to that website. I had them uploaded on Eclipse, but they got deleted.
  10. When you open the source, it will overwrite some of the code. Make sure to grab the source again and change the version of MSCOMCTL.OCX. @'artix5455': > just dont bother with eclipse worlds, there are a few better ones, and if only this engine well then idk what to say, i dont see a solution. I would of suggested running on windows xp but it seems u have done that already so use like skys engine or something He's asking for help. All Visual Basic 6 engines will have this problem, it just depends on the configuration of the computer. I have fixed this in the latest source which can be pulled via GitHub.
  11. > Didn't know steam gifts were a thing on ebay. Thank you ^__^ Selling Steam gifts is illegal, but a lot of people do it anyway.
  12. You are better off using Ebay. I sell on Ebay as a part-time job, and people may not even pay that high. Ebay is sort of like, a cheaper retail side of commerce.
  13. We'll start to see more, once there's actual scripting. No one likes to use Visual Basic 6, sadly.
  14. This bug has been applied to Eclipse Worlds, will be active in the next release. Unpinning this tutorial, but leaving it open.
  15. On your server go to [IPChicken](http://www.ipchicken.com/). I suggest setting up a [DDNS](http://www.noip.com/) host, so that if the IP changes you can change it using the host which will affect all your clients at once. You also need to portforward, but I am not going to tell you how to do that. Google it. Change the IP in the client config file to your IP you got from IPChicken.
  16. I already talked to the other team members to put the file back up, so it can be linked properly on the website. Will try to get them to do it again, I am no longer doing website maintenance.
  17. Is this a common issue with people? I will make it by default version 2.0 if it is the case. I have no clue though.
  18. > @[member="Xenofalcon"] lol, Old Spice Old Spice is a body wash. ;) Body wash is not good to use on your hair.
  19. There are probably more people that go into Computer Science for database and networking than programming, but right Computer Science is a broad scope when compared to the many divisions of other sciences out there (Chemistry, Biology, etc).
  20. Put the icons above the navbar buttons and not so far away. You should make them more connected.
  21. This is interesting actually. I do think both a cash shop with mere cosmetic items and a B2P model for expansion content is great. For example, you buy level cap expansion and it comes with new content. And even though, the game has a cash shop system that requires money, you can earn it by doing events, participating in various activities, and other aspects of the game to earn it for free. After much thought, allowing buy of cash shop currency with in-game currency creates hyperinflation (since the ratio for them is so different and bots exploit it) and is not a good idea. Think of the currency you use to trade for cash shop currency bound to your account. :)
  22. Looks interesting. :) I will finish watching the video later.

    Eclipse Worlds

    > If you manually render stuff, sure. VB6 does not support such things on its own. Yes or use GDI+ to convert the PNG to a picture box control. > Its just for the "RPG" ? not for the "MMORPG" ? What do you mean? This engine allows multiple people to play at once, it is for ORPG not MMORPG. MMORPG is a false name in reality, since this engine is only a MORPG engine. MMORPG means thousands, where this engine only can support 100 at a time.
  24. I can add in a rank system later, I had one in my old game already. Right now, **Eclipse Worlds** stores player kills in the player data. I may add in rank system in version 1.3.3.
  25. Oh and people shouldn't donate for these perks. I just have this here for people who want something for donating, oftentimes, donations don't give anything worth of what you give. That is why this is not a bought service or an equal valued service to the donation, but it is just like a donation back to the people that pay for the server bills.
