    Hello All!

    Well, another WAYWO has been and gone, and because I volunteered I get to make the new starter thread. I thought I'd do a news report style round up instead of the usual default images.

    It's been a thread with its ups and downs, like all of them. The main flamewar was "I'm making an Engine" "Make a game you cunt" "Fuck you", with some threat of the "Git vs Svn" looming in the East. Thankfully the latter failed to materialise, dealt with maturity and box ratings by the surprisingly grown up members of the forum!

    The thread was characterised in the later stages by something of a lack of the normally ubiquitous null, who finished work on his grapher to go and create a monstrosity of a website. Unfortunately for all of us who desperately wanted something he wasn't good at, it's quite good now.

    The most popular project was minecraft clones, although there have been a fair few geometry wars inspired shooters in the later stages.

    The Man of the Thread award (I'm making the OP, I'm giving the award) goes to Xerios3 for his seriously impressive 3D RTS. I think we all look forward to seeing it develop: it would be good to start to see a few more units :D. An honourable mention must of course go to null with his grapher, but Addendum Beta Subsection 3.2 states that the "Man of the Thread" award can't go to null. Sorry! r4nk has also posted a wide range of pretty damn cool projects, and his sense of humour has also contributed to the thread! I've also enjoyed seeing Parakons groovy little RPG grow: it's certainly flowered throughout this thread.

    Well done to everyone who made it to the highlights, which is most people who made a picture! It's been great seeing what the community has acheived, and I hope you all keep it up. To a content filled, hate free thread! Cheers!

    And now for the highlights:



    Particles!

    Also DOF.
    r4nk takes the credit for the first version of this, obviously, but I thought the joke rather peaked here.

    Programmer art ahead...




    Not much to show, but we have been implementing bullet physics and I've been binding all our shit to Lua. The scene is completely created and ran in Lua.
    (Yes, those is the ACTUAL muzzleflash.)

    (Jumping is a little too high..)
    i thought this is "what are you working on" not "show off your useless assembly code"

    (User was permabanned for this post ("Shitposter" - birkett))
    This is in here because of the perma'd bit. Oh I am controversial!


    Spot the "Hezzy".
    PROGRESS PICS ! YAY


    Hey I hope you don't mind me copying every single aspect of your game without asking permission all the way down to the art style.



    Edited:

    Oh fuck oh fuck this wasn't meant to be top of the new page
    I think r4nk can have "Most Epic Single Post Award" for that one :D.


    Sorry for everyone who didn't make it! 50 image limit :(

    OH SHIT THIS WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE PAGE KING SORRY GUYS I'VE LET YOU ALL DOWN HOW CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE (sorry for nicking the joke, r4nk: it was too good an opportunity to miss!)

    That doesn't look like #FF0000, #00FF00 and #0000FF
    That's because they're at alpha 128 instead of 255, to show that transparency is possible.

    Because it is shiny, and I do not have the rampant hatred that several people here have towards tutorials.

    It's first because I went through the thread chronologically: it is already a significant effort making the OP, and if you think I'm going to rank the picture by "awesomeness" you've got another thing coming!

    Well that's embarrassing, I couldn't figure out why my app kept crashing in a for loop.
    Then I realized I was adding items to the vector I was iterating. Major moment

    My moment was when I realized the only thing I understand in this sentence is vector, and thats sketchy at best.

    Oh segfaults <3

    Anyway, can't you do
    iterator = vector.insert();
    ? That should work, no?

    I think he means:
    "Then I realized I was adding items to the vector, while actually just wanting to iterate over its elements."

    Storing the new Items in a temporary vector, then inserting them into the main vector at the start of the update

    I didn't say instead of, but rather additionally.
    Seems like I'm wrong anyways, but you cannot iterate a vector, though you can iterate over the elements of a vector, in which case my edited version of your sentence would be right again.
    ah right, then yeah that's what happened. It was a harsh reminder my mortality, and my engine's update() function

    Instead of copying it you could also just save the previous end-iterator.
    const Entities::iterator oldEnd = entities.end();
    for(Entities::iterator iter = entities.begin(); iter != oldEnd; ++iter)
    Then you can insert elements past the oldEnd and save a copy.
