World of Goo, what about the real time strategy game Command & Conquer? Not the new sucked-out one with colorful 3d graphics but the old, original Command & Conquer 1? It's available for free now, just download it from EA. Even works on Vista.
I had a lot of fun playing the missions again which I did last time in 1995. Still a great game.
shocking how bad some web programmers are. Poor Opera team.
Irrlicht 1.5 yesterday. The new features include support for COLLADA 1.4 and LWO files, an .OBJ file writer, an enhanced software rasterizer (burning video), FSAA for OpenGL, OGRE .mesh loader improvements, nicer and faster terrain rendering, volume lights, various improvements for the WindowsCE port, shared depth buffers for RTT in D3D, a font creation tool for Linux and improvements with the dynamic lights, particle systems, LMTS, PNG and PCX loading and writing and a lot more. Happy downloading!
Adobe AIR and Microsoft Silverlight are getting competition: Appcelerator Titanium has been released as public preview version. Basically it works similar like AIR: It's a native browser client running the web app. The difference to AIR: it's open source and your app can be distributed as single package, without the need of installing something like the AIR runtime before this. But I guess it will still need an installed flash player if you plan to include an .swf file in that package, unfortunately (unconfirmed yet), otherwise Titanium would be the perfect tool for distributing flash games as standalone versions on end user PCs, IMO.
Why again am I working 5 hours a day for the state? Half the time I work, I work for taxes only. What am I paying with all my work again? The salary of those stupid politicans? The bonuses of the incompetent managers of the bankrupt banks? I guess that's it. </rant>
eee I bought about 8 months ago now has seen a lot of places around the world, and it's fun to browse the WLAN history panel:
Within this short amount of time, my EEE now has seen WLANs in Austria, Germany, Finland, Poland, Czechia, Korea, and Bulgaria. Not bad, and it still works. Who is a gooood netbook? Who is a good Netbook? You are! You are! :)
Nightsoft created an open source library named IrrAR which combines
the 3D engine Irrlicht with the ARToolKit. The result is the follwing:
20 easy steps to starting GTA IV on your PC. Great.
But I think there is another faster, 2-step way: 1) Download cracked version. 2) Play.
Yay, Bienen und Blumen now has a chat as well :)
Hybrid compiled and published a beta SDK of Irrlicht 1.5 yesterday, so if you have time, download and test it out. And report bugs if you find some, of course :)
Irrlicht 1.5 will contain tons of new features, and I will summarize them when 1.5 will be out (will not take that long, I guess).
