Are Programers inherently better game designers?

Do you think that programmers are inherently better game designers than say artists? writers? music composers? bug reporters? I know obviously game design is a complex thing and includes level design. Game design also encompasses all of those disciplines (code,art,music, writing etc) and more, but I...

Re: Career Choices after Undergraduate Studies in Electrical Engineering

It sounds like you enjoy software. Stick with the software stuff. Keep your skills current and up to date. I highly advise working on something like Wograld, and putting skills to practical use because the moment you forget about things like git and the latest version of Java.. you will be getting b...

Whatever happened to Hero of Allacrost?

I've noticed the site is down, taken offline for some reason it looks like. I've also noticed the project on sourceforge seems very inactive for some reason. (As in no development work going on) Did everyone just up and abandon it?

Hale an awesome new Balder's Gate like game.

Okay, first of all, Hale is not my game, as in I did not have any hand in developing it. It is written in Java so I don't have to worry about broke SDL libraries or any dependency hunts. Given the tiny size of the development team (less developers than wograld at the moment) however, I doubt most of...

Re: Lamps and Megarace - homemade multiplayer strategy game

No linux version and no source code. It is unplayable in wine (although it starts working the menus just don't look quite right.

Re: Attracting and keeping artists on an OSS game project

Honestly, I don't think graphics are going to make or break a game like The Mana World so as long as they stick to the secret of mana style. I used to really hate that game because of dependancy hunt. The things it probably needs are better storyline, better music and sound effects, and also better ...

Re: By text-based strategy game+source code. Please comment.

It compiles and runs, and it saves, but for some reason when I try to load the save it crashes.

Other than that though it is pretty good for a small text based game.

Re: Hero of Allacrost - RPG project with well-developed engine

I still can't get allacrost installed. I don't understand why everyone tries to develop games from scratch, why don't they just take an already working game and modify it until it does what is desired. My latest error (on Fedora 10, I tried to install a later version but it didn't work) checking for...

Re: Still Desperately Seeking.

I tried to test it out, and it looks like just another version of dependency hunt. As everyone knows there is one game popular game for linux, it is called dependency hunt. You can never get anything installed because of all the dependancies. [jastiv@localhost zaubercode]$ python game.py [jastiv@loc...

Re: Wograld - our graphics requirements are less demanding

Thought I would just update this here. I did fix the website, and the lead programmer decided to return to the project under a new name (maybe because I took all his junk food away from him). Not only that but a few major bugs were just fixed. I have been working on the artwork sprites and have made...

Re: Wograld - our graphics requirements are less demanding

First of all, the project is actually farther along then you might think. The view has already been changed from crossfires to a 45 degree angle view like that found in ultima online. In addition, extra floors were added. New artwork was also added. http://wograld.sourceforge.net/ Okay, now here is ...

Wograld - our graphics requirements are less demanding

Hey all. I don't know if any of your have played Crossfire or any of its derivatives such as Daimonin, but I know we need a better free-software replacement for games such as Ultima Online and Diablo. I do not think that the old graphics, poor user interface, average story line, and lousy game play ...

Why do we need this GLIBCXX_3.4.9?

[LX@localhost src]$ ./wesnoth
./wesnoth: /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by ./wesnoth)

I've tried both the development version and the stable version, compiling from source, and both give me this error. This is on Fedora Core5 btw.
