GNU build system for building a specific library, I was confused that the library finally was built, but nowhere to be found. A bit of investigation revealed that the library indeed was ready, but intentionally moved into a hidden directory by the script. For whatever reason. But it is always great spending senseless hours in the command line. With all the scrolling cryptic lines of strange text, for average people passing by it looks like you are an awesome hacker.
Duke Nukem Forever Trailer (yes! it finally will be released, incredible, btw) and the Crysis 2 Multiplayer Trailer. But am I the only one noticing that both use the same music? There are multiple themes in both videos, but the main theme is exactly the same song on both videos. Strange.
What If US Collapses? Soviet Collapse Lessons Every American Needs To Know. Although from 2006, it's still up-to-date and quite interesting and shows what might happen if the USA collapses, comparing to what happened when the USSR collapsed. Doesn't look too good, but who knows, maybe it won't collapse too soon after all.
CopperCube 2.2.3 and CopperLicht 1.3.3.
Both releases include quite a lot of changes and new features. In CopperCube for example includes editor improvements such as viewports for cameras and scaling in all direction by holding down shift, improved first person shooter camera control for Flash and WebGL (looking by moving mouse as discussed on this blog already), lots of various enhancements to actions and behaviors,
The CopperLicht release includes all these improvements, but only for the WebGL side, of course. Happy downloading.
new Quake 3 demo for WebGL. It features the new control method with the mouse which I blogged about earlier, the possibility to jump using space, heavily improved collision detection and response (performance much better now) and faster 3D rendering.
The latest Firefox 4 beta 9 has a problem with its z-buffer (its precision is much too low, I guess they are now using 16 bit by default now?), but fortunately, you won't notice this in this new demo.
It is in comic form. A high resolution pdf with 3 pages of self made comic, describing the bug. Kudos to shmilblick for this original idea. It not only made me laugh, but also described a bug which I was able to reproduce in no time. :)
Controls: cursor keys to move, mouse to Look, space to shoot.
There is also a corresponding thread in the CopperCube forum. Nice work! BTW: there is a successor to the original Castlevania available currently, named Castlevania : Lords of Shadow.
You only need to mark dots in the lightcurves of stars on this website, and you can discover exoplanets with this. You will even get the credit if you find a planet. This is not a web game, but real. It's great in so many ways.
