Ray tracing is just a method of making a 3d picture with a computer. It's probably how Pixar makes all their movies. It can make some awesome pictures, but it is also very slow, so video games don't use it.
King Of Beasts
I haven't studied technical arts yet, so sorry if I ask a million questions about this one thing, lol.
King Coin
I don't care. I'm a total nerd so I could go on about this thing. This is the coolest program I have ever written.

I wanna work in game designing as a career, but can't afford college yet kvleft.gif

You can learn some programming on your own, but graphics is definitely something you would want to at least be able to talk to someone that knows what they are doing.
King Of Beasts
I'm gonna try to see what I can learn about programming. I should figure out how to properly work my computer first though lol

Well, my dad went to Amsterdam on business, so he had a stopover in Iceland, and Icelandair is govt subsidized, so they give you loads of free stuff. The salt and pepper packet had "s" and "p" in elder runic, and said so. That was the first thing I thought to google.

Heh, a problem I never have these days. Now I just cut it really short(about 6mm) to avoid the problem.

Great in summer, very cooling. Not so good in winter of course, I can't step foot outside without a hat.

2 NES games and one Gameboy game have landed at casa del mirocu!! biggrin.gif

The NES games were Ufouria, an authentic and very rare game, and Stadium Events, so insanely rare that I can only ever get a hold of it if itīs a reproduction which this was. But it was at least in pure mint! biggrin.gif

The GB game was Motocross Maniacs smile.gif

I've got those two on my Gamecube. When I bought it it came with a limited edition disc, containing those two and the two N64 games, Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Never got around to playing them, though I did play both the N64 games.

One of the best games Iīve ever played is Linkīs Awakening to Gameboy. Absolutely mindblowingly epic! The music is fantastic (of course) and the graphical details are incredible!

Ahh, I remember that game, I had the DX version, that worked with the Gameboy colour. Utterly awesome.


Heh, trying to write an update about Telindil for the "Today in Cyrodiil" thread earlier, only to realize I'd been at it for about two hourse, writing, reading, rewriting, editing, rereading and so-on. I'd written nearly two pages of it, and I'd barely passed the first attack on the Emperor, shortly after leaving the cell. And I'm still working on it. wacko.gif wacko.gif wacko.gif

I really don't think that it's going to work. mellow.gif

That's the problem, I'm not pushing it. I sat down to write an update, and before I knew it it had just run away with me. wacko.gif

If this keeps up I might have to see about getting my fan-fic thread reopened and re-titled.

I think you should definitely do that if your itch to write is that strong smile.gif I only ask of you to keep posting shorter updates for me as well tongue.gif

At present; trying to decide whether to play Borderlands or Borderlands 2, and which character to play in which game. As it turns out the assassin character in Borderlands 2 is better with a melee weapon than with a sniper rifle, since my preferred playstyle in a shooter is a sniper, it's something of a problem. Even going for headshots, I'm facing enemies that take three or four of them to drop them.

And writing about Telindil of course.

You gaming addict, you tongue.gif

If I didnīt have Oblivion, Arena, Morrowind and Fallout 3 and my NES and Gameboy games, Iīd take a look at Borderlands laugh.gif

They say the first step is admitting you have a problem. mellow.gif

But since I've got nothing to admit, clearly I don't have a problem. laugh.gif

My reasoning is foolproof.

Sitting here with my mint repros of Stadium Events and NWC happy.gif
Callidus Thorn
Are you playing them, or just looking at them?

Hmm, you said mint, must be just looking.
mirocu
Yep, just looking smile.gif

Actually, the NWC cart is not mint. Iīve opened it up to gawk at all the goodies inside and Iīve even test played it a couple of times. Unfortunately itīs an American game so it doesnīt work properly on my console. It may not be mint, but itīs very pristine wink.gif

I've often heard it said that videogames are art. I'd even argue it myself, but I doubt it was ever meant to be taken so literally.

Basically anything can be art, especially if it has original creativity. If you like it however is another thing wink.gif

Hey, did anyone ever thought of how cruel it is to give a snowman a scarf? I mean, itīs practically a death sentence for him! rollinglaugh.gif

Considering what passes for "art" these days, I wish people didn't think in those terms.

Why can't they be art? They're forms of creative expression and some of them have artistic merit, so why not?

Well yeah, but to my mind that's rather like going to see the Mona Lisa or something, and ignoring the picture to look at the frame.

Sure, it might be a nice frame, but the real art is inside it.

And so we come full circle, to the essential dichotomy of gamer versus collector.

On which note, I think it's time for me to call it a night.
