    Post A hard game?

    http://queatrix.awardspace.com/program.php?14

    It's the first real 3D game i've made (Second if you can count a flopped bowler. ) And am curios to your reactions, i've heard that 3D is "really hard", and compared to 2D, I find that it is. But what would you call it? All the script (except the defualt template from NeHe) is original, nothing ripped.

    I would put it in the game sticky in the game board, but I'm not including script (Sorry) because this is really somthing to me (especially the movement and collision detection) and don't want to just give it away yet. And I know most of you wouldn't feel good about loading a exec on your computer, but you do have my word that its no threat.

    What do you think.

    Didn't another member just get done telling someone else why this is a bad idea? Sorry you missed it.

    I didn't miss it, I gave a description of it, and like in most of my programs, this one will close - no questions asked - on press of the escape key. And this isn't random, its somthing from a fellow cboarder.

    I'm sorry, I have a very short attention span ... you can't possibly expect people to download all those files 1 by 1 ? On top of that, all the links are impossible to download because you put backslashes "\" instead of slashes "/" which are url-encoded into "%5C" which results in a file not found.

    Zip it, put up a working link and I might give it a try.

    I would hope that people here are not na´ve enough to think that people on cboard are automatically trustworthy.

    For some of the posts I've seen, I would argue that that position would be an incorrect one.

    Koni, none of my download links have "\", they all have "/", you must be thinking of somthing else, or your using a different browser that does somthing weird.

    Okay MacGyver, I get your point. I guess it comes down to wether you decide to look at it or not. Please tell me what you decide.

    Like the first 3 slashes in the path are / but the last 2 or so are \, for me anyway.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    Yeah. They're the wrong kinds of slashes -

    Upload a zip or something. I'm not going to download the whole lot! Doubt many have that patience.

    Well, there goes 10 years of web development just to have someone, that isn't even capable of checking all the slashes in a link, tell me that I'm doing something wrong.

    The slashes appeared fine to me using Opera.

    Here's the actual HTML code:

    Code:
    <a href="archive\GenesisTrack\hiscores.dat">hiscores.dat</a>
    <br />
    <a href="archive\GenesisTrack\grass.bmp">grass.bmp</a>
    <br />
    As you can see, this is clearly WRONG. Opera is "smart" enough to understand the intention, gratz to Opera for making debugging hard.

    Additionally, the W3C HTML Validator returns 30 errors for that page, ranging from non-standard attributes like using "background=..." to not replacing & with their entity counterpart &amp; or using the same CSS id several times on the same page.

    The results can be found here.

    Many people believe that writing correct markup is an easy task and requires less thinking or is more flexible. While this is definitely true for logical components like algorithms, writing correct markup today is definitely not easy. Not only do you have to produce cross-browser, standard markup that displays the same everywhere, you also have to know a wider skillset, including at least (X)HTML and CSS.

    I'd love to rip that page apart and implement it correctly, this hurts my eyes just like bad C code does.
