Provided that it's not confidential or you don't want to reveal much about them, what your current project(s)?

My main project at the moment is a game, a remake of "The Supernatural Olympics". My previous release was limited due to the program I used to build it with having many limitations. The remake is doing it entirely in C. It's a 2D game at its heart, but is designed to look and feel very 3D-like due to taking parallax scrolling to the extreme. This is my latest screenshot (http://www.ulillillia.us/images/SOlympics03xDev001.jpg) of the scenery from about 3500 feet above ground (you can get much, much higher than this). The "gap" is where lakes and forests are going to be. Here's the details about the project as a whole (http://www.ulillillia.us/gamedesign/supernaturalolympics/v03x/about03x.shtml) (it's in development, so these are likely to change. I'm hovering near 3/8 completion overall (http://www.ulillillia.us/gamedesign/supernaturalolympics/checklist.shtml) (based on time spent at it over the expected time), most of which with the scenery.

A project I have for the future is a 2D RPG game, but almost all of it's details are classified. George Game 13 is likely my first main 3D project I'll be going at with my 3D RPG game after it.

Consulting for a company that develops software for nuclear power plants. Needed to change the app to be able to be used in multi database environments (oracle + mssql + access).

Next will be a project with 30 consultants dealing with the state gov't, they won't tell me what it actually is.

My current project is trying to have my cozy bookstore business survive in a country that doesn't like to read.

oh... and I'm also trying to develop a scalable play by email wargame.

Whenever my homework projects don't get in the way (which btw are only worth 1% each -_-) I'm doing some wxWidgets programming with wxFormBuilder and Codeblocks. Right now I only have the reference manual to guide me until I get the official book, but I'm learning as I go. I've managed to replicate my homework assignments (which use windows forms and C#) in wxWidgets in C++. Hopefully when school is over I can get back into openGL programming because I was doing quite a bit of that before this semester kicked in. My school schedule stinks.

I'm making a forum with centralized database which will host two websites. Hobby projects. This forum will kick ass :) totally new kind of forum.

I'm currently developing a new, more modern "Hello World!" program. It's beta, right now, but I'll be hiring testers shortly.

This company that I'm consulting sells software to power plants all over the world.

Be afraid, very very afraid.

The changes I made were large in scope but minimal in the impact to the actual pp control.

Don't laugh at me, but my group in university just submitted this tentative proposal for our operating systems related project:
To develop a cross platform shell in Java. It will include basic arithmetic support, with additional commands based on the Java programming language. The shell will be command line based, but include some graphical utilities, e.g., tabbed shell windows.


Could you tell me what towns I should be avoi... err... that you develop for?
Come over to Singapore. We do not have a nuclear power plant.

... or so the government tells us.

To develop a cross platform shell in Java

The problem with Java is not the language; It's a beautiful language. It's instead its programmers insisting on doing things they shouldn't. :)

But seriously now, does seem like an interesting project... for C/C++. Ahaha! Ok, I'll stop laughing now ;)

But C/C++ is not a programming language :p

On a more serious note, the choice is between Java or C since none of my other group members know C++, and since they are all not proficient in C (including me, actually), Java is the only realistic option unless we want to take a risk with C. I expect that we will end up using JNI for some things and thus write some C code anyway, though.

Best of luck. Should be an interesting project. :)

Holy ........ man! I know who you are! I thought maybe
your name was just a fan service to him! But after seeing
the links to your homepage in this thread... dude, you
are him!

You're a celebrity! There was a whole thread about
you on another forum I frequently visit. it was about your
heroic 500 hours on Level 2 in Bubsy 3D.

I have been writing a program to help me play poker online.
It scans through the hand histories of your previous games and builds up statistics
on each player, ie how many games they have played, how much they win/lose and how often
they perform various actions. I have modified it to work on a different site too, which stores
it's data in a different form and has slightly different information in the hand histories.
I intend to get it to work other sites too.
The problem is that there is a lot of code which is pretty common/similar but with slight
differences too, so I have to maintain a second program for each. Also there are different
types of games such as fixed limit betting and no limit betting, although I no longer play
fixed limit so I abandoned that version. I also have a version for tournement games which
have a slight difference in that you play for chips not cash but I should have incorporerated
that in to cash game program in an ideal world. There is much more data I could extract such
as a different data set for different stakes and number of players etc but sometimes you
can have too much infomation! Probably the single most telling piece of information is
whether a player wins or loses and how much (per hand). It has no GUI, just a set of data for each
active table and one global file for every player, which I view in Notepad++.
Probably the hardest part is testing, especially if there small descrepancy somewhere which
usually arises from me not understanding the hand history or some rare condition/event in
the hand.
There are also some actions which require some manual intervention such as updating my
main 'database' which I could automate and some bits of code I need to tidy up to make
porting to a different site easier. However I have shyed away from doing that because if it
makes a 'mistake' I will have to run the program from scratch, which on one site involves
processing over 1/2 a million files which 'takes a while' :)
However it is not so much the processing which takes the time it is the file access, if I run it
again with the files buffered in memory it is about ten times faster, so I may as well have
written it in basic!!
I play at two other sites (occasionally) so they will be next on the 'port to' list.
The next feature I might add is to keep a balance of how much I win/lose to a particular
player so I can do something about it!!!
However I expect this would merely follow the overall winners/losers list.

Obviously you can buy a program to do all this for you but I can't afford it because I have
lost all my money at poker :D

It is not so much people don't want to read but it is so much easier read stuff on the internet.
I have not bought a book since I got connected to the web, not that I bought many before
hand. People still like to read but many types of books have been made redundant by the web. I certaintly stopped buying newpapers once I had web access, helped pay my ISP
charges anyway!
