Computer games are video games played on a personal computer, mobile device or video game console. Their defining characteristics include a lack of any centralized controlling authority, a greater degree of user control over the video-gaming hardware and software used and a generally greater capacity in input, processing, and output.

Hi, I am Developing a game with Unity Game Engine, I can barely code so am learning the ins and outs. The problem is that when the game runs, it glitches now and then, often dropping through the landscape as it does. I have run a profiler within the game engine which tells me that the main glitches are coming from the Garbage Collector, basically the Heap memory is filling up very quickly, and once full the game pauses briefly as it empties, causing the main character to glitch through the landscape. How do I lessen this behaviour as it is making the game unplayable. I am looking for someone who has experience in this field, hopefully familiar with Unity or at least willing to become familiar with unity, as the game progresses I hope to build a relationship with this person with the aim of taking them onboard as a part-time programmer, who would be up for a cut of the final takings, whatever they may acrue to. If someone is up for this role I would give them full access to the game, which is going to take a couple of years to build, and would pay a fair percentage in accordance with how much they helped me, which can be discussed by email. Thanks for any help, I will greatly appreciate it :)

Hi

On our last RTS we did, Java, the networking worked perfectly and the GUI worked seamlessly in time w it.
Will a Python GUI handle  a game window adequately? - as well as possible
What about with TCP and datagrams underneath it all?
Another question already suggested I keep the server in Java, for now.

Thanks

Hi All,

I am trying to pair my Wii remote to and an nvidia shield.  But I don't know the bluetooth pin.

After reading several articles online it says I need to calculate it based on the MAC address.


The PIN-Code is the binary bluetooth address of the wii remote backwards. Following a short piece of C code to calculate the PIN:

Lets assume the Wiimote has the bluetooth address "00:1E:35:3B:7E:6D". If you want the PIN for bluetooth pairing in a simple string, do the following:

char pin[6];
pin[0] = 0x6D;
pin[1] = 0x7E;
pin[2] = 0x3B;
pin[3] = 0x35;
pin[4] = 0x1E;
pin[5] = 0x00;

Now "pin" contains your bluetooth pin that should be used for pairing your devices.

http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Wiimote#Bluetooth_Pairing

Could someone help me work out what the pin should be?  I've tried several online calculator but suspect I'm doing it wrong.

The MAC addresses for my two Wii controllers are;

00:19:1D:C6:EE:61
00:19:1D:B5:57:89


Many thanks

I got hundreds of small rectangle image pictures of a words that I cut open from a letter-page.
Question is  how to allow User to rearrange images visually to reconstruct a original or alternative story?  

All kind of extras as game-like % to see how near constructed is to original would be good also, with print out option of final work.  

First i can just copy them all in to Word-Blog and start re-arrange in there, but this ended up with a freezed session.

Also was thinking about some image gallery scripts that would randomize images  and would fill a page by adding  the rectangle images after each other in flat view (there would be no option to re-arrange but at least would be able to display the output some-kind in readable format).

Notes:
(image rearrange platform, web-script, flash puzzle like game where people can randomize images and then one by one order them up and down, after each other.  )

the requirements for the game is :

a single player playing against the computer.
The computer automatically generates its fleet locations
The single player enters via keyboard the location of her or his fleet.
Fleet components:
Battleship: 5 spaces (1 battleship)
Crusier: 4 spaces (1 cruiser)
Submarine: 3 spaces (1 submarine)
Destroyer: 2 spaces (1 destroyer)
Trawlers/spy ships: 1 space each (5 trawlers)
The board size: 10 spaces x 10 spaces
The human player starts by guessing a location. If a miss, the computer tells the user it was a miss. If a hit, the computer tells the user it was a hit. If a hit sinks a ship, that ship type is identified. The user's shot display is updated with the location of the hit and/or miss.
Both the user's screen and the user's guess screens are displayed for the user and updated during game play.
The game continues, alternating "shots" on the opposing fleet.
The game is over when either the user's or the computer's fleet is totally sunk.
User interface requirements:
two fleet screen matrixes
User's fleet positions
user's shot record (and hit/miss pattern)
a running count of number of shots, number of hits, and number of misses.
May be either text-based or GUI
Program requirements:
All course standards met, to include internal documentation
All variables validated and no out of range errors experienced during gameplay
method calls, parameter passing and returns to main(), properly prototyped and called.

Hello!

I have a question about my graphic card Nvidia. I did updates with Nvidia drivers.

I play one game simulator, Run-8 Simulator has been blocked from accessing Graphic hardware "application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware nvidia".
I did change in 3D Settings for Raun-8 Simulator to make look better but guess not because of blocked from accessing Graphic hardware.

Anyone suggests

Thank you,

Hello i hope someone would help me with thins problem ,
recently my ISP blocked access to battle.net and other sites and i can do nothing about it , so i thought i would use my VPS as a proxy, I've set up a squid proxy and opened the suitable port in UFW . then in my pc i can use Proxifier to force some apps to use the proxy . the result is :
-World of Warcraft is working without any issue
-Overwatch is the problem, i can enter the main menu but when i chose to play a game i keeps looping in loading .

my squid config is like :


auth_param basic program /usr/lib/squid3/basic_ncsa_auth /etc/squid3/squid_passwd
auth_param basic casesensitive off
auth_param basic credentialsttl 2 hours
auth_param basic children 20
acl user_auth proxy_auth REQUIRED
http_access allow user_auth
#http_access allow all
http_port 8888

Open in new window


and I've opened the port 8888 in UFW

I've tried Openvpn and it can enter a game in overwatch but i don't want to tunnel the whole PC .

In a Windows 10, 64bit gaming computer (i7, 24gb ram, Geforce GTX770), GTA V is crashing ONLY when I have a Saitek R440 Wheel plugged in, even in safe mode, in USB 2 and 3 ports.

The wheel works with other games like Dirt Rally (altho I can't get the Force Feedback to work yet). I installed the drivers sw that came with the wheel, but the Saitek Profiler software says "you must plug in a supported saitek programmable controller before you continue" even when its plugged in.  Same issue with legacy software I found online for this device.  They don't detect it, altho windows 10 does, and other games do.

What kind of coding would I use on a Video game on a PC computer. The game is about a mall where you can work and get Jobs and make point. With the points you can buy new things. You can be what ever you want and unlock really cool things. What is the coding? What language in the coding? What software?

I'm creating a product that displays 3D images, kinda like a 3D television. I'd like developers to use the Unity Game Engine to develop apps/games for this device. I'm totally new to this stuff and wonder if that's even possible. Can I somehow get my platform to be supported by Unity? If not, would someone suggest a better approach?

The reason I want to do this: I have a 3D hardware product, and I need an IDE to develop apps for it. It looks like Unity would be a good choice because there are already millions of developers, and it's an established development platform. Again, I'm new to this, so any advice would be most appreciated.
