    Most people arent naive enough to execute compiled code. You shoudl post the source so people can compile it themselves.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    if you're so naive that you don't know why people don't execute programs linked to by utter strangers, all the more reason to not execute programs made available by you...

    Ever heard of trojans, virusses, spyware?

    >and as far as I can tell is giving very good results.

    Since the entire game tree for ttt can fit into memory a minimax implementation should play perfectly (always win or tie). If it doesn't play perfectly it's not implemented correctly.

    Yes people are quite eager to download executables from random people on the net and run them. In fact, why don't I take down my anti-virus and firewall while I do it. Will that allow it to run better?

    It is sad asking a simple question ("How can I make this look better?") renders so many ridiculous comments about how naive I am. This board has changed for the worse, and there are maybe 6-7 notable members still here that are actually helpful. The others just .......... and rant about pointless stuff. It seems I have become one of those people with this post. So I have removed my question, and my game from this board.

    Here's a pretty good how-to for you people that think I am submitting virus's:
    1) Don't download it.
    2) If you do, scan it for viruses. ( Amazing most virus scanners will let you do this )
    3) If you do, scan it for spyware/adware/malware. ( same as number 1 )
    4) If you are still paranoid about it's security why did you download it in the first place?

    Reason many people are hesitant to download an executable from somebody they dont know in real life on a board like this is because that opens them up for somebody who has written a malicious program on their own.

    Say for instance a person who has just finished writing a virus wants to start spreading it, if people on boards such as this would just download any executable people post the risk of getting infected by something a virusprogram wont catch increases drasticly.

    That is at least why I personally am hesitant to execute programs from other people just like that.

    Why did you delete your post though? If I see a program posted by a user with 1 posts for example then I wouldn't download it. If It is a topic with no replies and I would be the first to download, I would think twice. On the other hand, if a guy with a lot of posts uploads something, comes back and defends his "not wanting to upload the file" then I would be convinced to download the file, knowing this is not totally safe for me.

    As one of the members on this forums has on his/her signature (One of my favorite phrases so far, thanks for showing it ) "Those who sacrifise freedom for security, deserve none" (Not sure if that's right) :P Anyways, shoo the AV and trust people, even tho they ain't trustable, but you still make the other person happy :P
    And flaming a person who's looking for help is... Out of control insane in the head :P And yes, I DL every single executable with promised insteresting content and no, I don't use AV's :P

    The thing is, is that I should not have to defend myself. I did nothing wrong, and to have people point fingers at me like I am retarded or something is somewhat offensive, and as far as I am concerned completely unnecessary.

    For those that may be interested: ( This contains "hge.dll", "TicTacToe.exe(release)", Media files, and source code ).
    It is not complete, and is quite obvious when running.

    TicTacToe(Source_Media).rar - contains the source code, and the required media files.
    The exe assumes the media is located at "..\\Media\\"

    GameExe.rar - contains a executable of the game. Compile the code and check MD5 checksums if you want. (Media is not included with this )

    because you cant upload .rar file archives. just take the .txt off the end, and unzip as usual.

    Because it doesn't allow you to upload .exe files of course. I mean, always have the option to download them, but of course it would be stupid if a forum actually provided the future to upload .exe files.

    And of course the phrase "Those who sacrifise freedom for security, deserve none" is correct. Think of the worst case scenario. Die fighting in a meaningless war or being prevented to fight a just war?

    What's teh difference if it's .txt first, or starts with .exe o.O? You people are so... Scared >.> It ain't like a virus will infect you or anything :P

    EDIT: OMG, Windows doesn't show me the .txt >.<
