Imagine if pizza had no negative side effects. Such as you can eat it all day without getting fat.

 

Imagine if the other option is that bland nutrient soup you see them eating in the matrix

And imagine if it seemed to take a lot of effort to be able to get a pizza hut membership (the only way to eat pizza). With theories surrounding on how best to get pizza hut membership ranging from being outcome independent but approaching lots of pizza huts asking for membership, to signing commitment agreements to the company, to paying absurd amounts for pizza directly, to just direct theft.

 

In that scenario I would imagine that pizza all the time with or without anchovies is on the table, kinda makes sense. Especially to those who don't feel that they get a lot of pizza relative to their peers.

Pizza is basically sex so this is all accurate

I wrote up a script to generate dungeons according to the new algorithm, which took like an hour because the algorithm is so much simpler. & it can be really fast too because you don't have to generate a new dungeon every time. You just have to shuffle an existing one. I don't make that optimization here, but I would if I were generating them for actual use in a game. Maybe generate like 1000 dungeons without pruning, then pick one randomly, shuffle it 10 times, then prune it and it'd be hella fast.

Someone tell me what wtf allo means

 

hes mentioned before that hes an asexual (which i don't know if that means lack of sexual attraction or desire or both so I'm assuming both). Allo to their termonology refers to typical peoples sex drives

 

 

what's the difference between allosexual and sexual? like, you don't see atheists calling theists "allotheists." you don't see females calling males "allomales."

 

if we're gonna go with allosexual, then people who don't experience sexual attraction should be a-allosexuals. which then makes someone like me an allo-a-allosexual, and someone who doesn't experience sexual attraction an a-allo-a-allosexual.

Maybe it's just me, but calling someone a sexual seems weird

That's because you'd probably use heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual instead. Up till now, sexual's only been an adjective rather than a noun

This. "Sexual" was used for a while, but it's awkward and has some uncomfortable implications.

What's a good algorithm to select start and boss rooms? My initial thought was to select a random dead end to be the boss room and a random room with a manhattan distance between 8 and 16 away from the boss to be the start room. I tnink that algorithm would work really well (I'd have to run another algorithm to determine the critical path though), but I don't think it's true to the rules of real dungeoneering, where I'm pretty sure I've seen a boss room only a couple of tiles away from the start room.

 

Or I could select a random dead end to be the boss room and then walk a random path until I've touched 19-23 unique rooms, which I think is closer to what Jagex does, but I think it's a pretty ugly algorithm and there's no guarantee that you don't get stuck in a loop.

 

If I chose the first algorithm, I could select 2 more random rooms (again with a restriction on Manhattan distance from the boss room (or one with a restriction on the M distance from the start and the other from the boss)), call them a and b, and then trace a path from start to a to b to boss, and then call that the critical path. That provides a guarantee on the run time of the algorithm, but an inconsistent guarantee on the length of the critical path (between 8 and 40 rooms, by my count, instead of 19-23). Maybe you can tweak the M distance restriction to get a good path length, but I don't want to do that math right now.

Dijkstra.

 

Manhattan distance with each node being weighted as 1.

 

Since Dijkstra finds the shortest path to all nodes you can have the longest path be your start and end rooms

The problem with Dijkstra (and A* and other pathfinding algorithms) is that we're finding (in graph theory terms) a walk, not a path. That is, we can repeat rooms and room connections. That means running a random walk algorithm or cheating by stitching multiple paths together. I propose the cheating method, since random walks can get out of hand pretty easily.

 

Though I guess you're right that you could use a pathfinding algorithm to find the longest path and select the endpoints as the start and end, and then select 2 more paths in order to cheat. Then you could shuffle start, a, and b so that you don't always start at a deadend, but you do have to visit one.

Today I'll play some ArenaScape, because I haven't done so in a week or so due to me getting ready for my move across the country :L.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

My trusty media storage drive may, or may not, be dying, though I think I just accidentally figured out that my PSU is failing spectacularly to supply sufficient power to my 3 storage drives on a cable, so that's going to be fun to fix (though I'm 90% positive that I've had them wired that way for a long time). In any event, chkdsk time.

 

My computer has developed a weird issue where it runs like molasses when it starts, until I run a game, at which point it runs fine thereafter (though now I'm wondering if my power setup isn't at least playing into this issue). In any event, rather than waste too much time working that one out, I'm reinstalling Windows since I need to do it anyway (it's a BIOS installation, and my new GPU will need UEFI), and it means finally moving windows to my SSD (this was impossible to do while I was still in Windows 7 if I didn't want to buy a new license). I need that media drive working though, since it's supposed to play host to all the information from the other drives (the SSD needs to be reformatted, and the primary HDD should be reformatted and properly partitioned). Jury is out on whether I want to convert the media drive to GPT too. It'll take a long time, but as the drive gets older, having that drive be a single partition is starting to get pretty scary.

 

In any event, at Windows behest, the media drive is going to have to undergo a full chkdisk recovery and fix procedure, so that's fun. At least my computer can keep running.

 

Oh, and my front USB 3 ports aren't working again. Probably bent a pin. Not a fan of that header design; the pins should never be the first thing to engage (because pins bend if you do that).

 

 

I should probably look into testing my PSU too. Bah.

Ty for the thread Estonian dude.

 

 

 

 

In other news I had a final for my game dev (elective) class. And while we used unity the teacher is a Ph.D in computer graphics so the final naturally focused on the super mathy theory side of it, but with unity api questions mixed in there.

 

The hardest one for me was a question about collision detection.

 

So the problem involved a plane being defined by 3 points to make a triangle and a game object colliding with it at a point and coming up with how to move it so that its just outside the plane. I didn't take vector calculus so i'm not an expert about this.

 

I know you can make a vector from AB (definition points) and a vector from (BC) and do the cross product of those two vectors to get a vector normal to the plane. From there I had no idea how to apply it to the object which collided with the plane at a point.

 

 

 

All in all i don't expect to fail but this class definitely kicked my ass.

 

take a game dev class they said. It would be fun they said :lol:

Media drive isn't dying, it's just writing to a Hard Drive experiencing frequent unexpected power loss causes corruption. Shocker. I figure I'm probably in for a new PSU, but in the meantime I need to see if I can keep all 3 drives running by using both lines, or if I need to rig my spare PSU to run some of the drives (because that wouldn't be excessive in any way).

Few days late on this, but the reason i was so grossed out by a girl asking me to have sex with her while she's on her period is because blood really freaks me out. There have been occasions where i would faint at the sight of a lot of blood. I even faint sometimes when i have to get blood drawn from me. So the idea of having sex with someone on her period... Yikes.

Yeah, I could see that being a problem if you faint at the sight of blood.

 

I managed to deal with my computer by putting my second hard drive onto a different line (but still the same rail). Not sure why 3 drives on one string was giving it issues, but there you go. Should be able to move things around so that I can plug my DVD drive back in too. In any event, my SSD is now copying to my media drive while Steam Downloads to the main drive, and nothing is losing power, so all is good. Probably still want to replace my PSU though. I think Solid Gear falls into the 'makes PSU shaped objects' segment of the market, or close to it. But then, that information comes from people who probably haven't given anyone else a chance in the last half decade, so I've never totally sure.
