Recent Search Terms

Here's a collection of the "Recent Search Terms" postings I've done on my site. Basically I browse through website logs (currently using google analytics) and look at the search terms people have used in search engines (mostly google) to find their way to my site.

avr circuit simulator for ubuntu atanua

Sorry, never got around to implementing it, even thought I got sources to an avr simulator and license to use it.

common stories of sol

I guess I do repeat myself sometimes.

concept of lookup table in graphics tutorial

Concept. Okay. First, calculate something. Then, realize you're calculating that exact same thing a lot. So how about storing the value and reusing the result. But you have a range of values. So instead of storing one value, you store a table of values. And that table is a lookup table. Not really limited to graphics, though. Common lookup tables in graphics (historically) are color lookup tables, screen offset tables, and trigonometric tables, such as sin and cos, for old enough machines where calculating those is really expensive.

death rally creators dos

That would be remedy entertainment.

how to make a audio engine in c++

webcam dll multi device support

Depends on the make and model of webcams. Some work, others don't. Most people don't use multiple webcams at once, and thus the developers don't always expect that.

white magic spells that work

Click here to feel better.

why are busses so loud

They are relatively heavy vehicles, and thus require rather a lot of energy to move, and acoustics isn't the primary concern. While I do believe that it would be possible to design a bus that's fairly silent, I trust that people would prefer just getting whereever they're going at a cheaper rate than ride on a bus that doesn't make so much noise.

faded white circle

Sounds like a pop album.

java bit mask hack 32

I kinda feel sad that something that's probably very basic in programming is considered a "hack" or "low level" these days.

"port from dos to windows" success rate

I have no idea what the success rate is, it probably depends on the persons doing the project (and their motivation).. and naturally the state of the original product.

atanua free full download

It always is. Sure, there's nags, but the downloads are full.

bit twiddling cx8 compiler

xc8 appears to be a 8-bit microcontroller C compiler. As long as you just keep to the 8-bit limits (i.e, "int" may actually be 16 or even 8 bit), normal bit trickery should work fine.

bitwise 1 3 7 15 31 63 127 255 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Use the calculator in your computer. Switch it to "programmer" mode or some such. You're welcome.

can dos extenders be rewritten to use current memory addressing

pascal language discovered by whom

Discovered. You keep using that word. I don't think it means what you think it means.

sin interpolator

Yes, that's a pretty good metaphysical question. At which point can we say a sin has been commited? Killing a person just a little? Being unfaithful just a little? How would you interpolate from sin-less to sinned? Where's the treshold?

stories on time

Once upon a time the end.

what classes would i have to take to create my own web based mmo games


8051 is a?

Number. It's not a prime, since 83*97=8051.

another way to say interpolate

You could try sticking your tongue to the roof of your mouth and get something like "intelpoleit".

applications of immediate mode addressing

Depending on the architecture, there may be some known addresses; for instance, in DOS you could get the current time tick by reading from a certain address. Other known addresses might be ram-mapped I/O ports, for instance. And when programming for microcontrollers, just about everything is a known address.

I don't know what a 'stark' is. And I probably don't want to.

rifle case that connects to my backpack


what's immediate mode

Opposed to deferred or retained mode, immediate mode performs actions more or less immediately. Compare drawing a triangle now to adding a triangle to a list to be processed later.

For the users to have a coherent experience across applications, without having to learn to use every single one all over again.

why smooth step have sine

Because sine is smooooooooooooooooth.

why we use interpolation

"im,jikuyyu ui"

So's this.

alesis q49 + virtualbox

Never tried. I suppose it should work like any other USB device though?

answers to galaxql 2.0

Yeah yeah. At this point I fear it would probably be a re-designed GalaXQL 3.0 as during the project I figured out how I should have made it in the first place, and it was far too late to change at that point. Since there's no incentive for me to actually make GalaXQL 3.0, though, don't hold your breath. (Feel free to give me incentives though).

arb_instanced_arrays tutorial

Damn you, minecraft.

atanua for mac

Since Apple stopped supporting me, I stopped supporting Apple. So it's kinda mutual.

Less snarkily, I have no financial incentive to support Atanua on macs, and Apple keeps breaking builds.

is there a way to see if someone is using hacks in a game

Depends. Sometimes, no. Sometimes, if the hack is not subtle enough. You can do statistics, spy on certain users somehow, run parallel simulations, etc. But if the hack is subtle and purely client-side, it may be impossible.

You're kidding, right?

why does sol update recent search terms so rarely

This is obviously gaming the sytem, but I'll bite. First, lots of searches tend to repeat (and I hate answering those mmorpg queries, but it's hard to resist..). Second, there aren't too many interesting searches to answer. It seems like the totally weird searches no longer happen, which may mean that search engines are improving. Third, I'm lazy.

write a c program that simulates a guessing game. each turn you choose among nine possible guesses

...aaand here's your schoolwork question of the month.

"why" make your own 3d game engine

To learn. Doing a minimalistic 3d engine isn't all that difficult, actually. Then again, that's what they say about raytracers too, but I haven't managed to make one yet.

best awy to render alot of cubes

Bake the cubes into one primitive, so you can render lots of them with one draw call.

best way texture map sphere

I'd go with a cube map.

can we hack dll

Yes. A "hack" dll is usually a DLL that has the same signature (i.e, same entry points) as the "real" dll, which passes the calls to the "real" one, possibly changing some values from the program's calls.

can you code a windows application in c? winapi -"c++"

Yes. Microsoft has, in the past at least, been careful to enable using plain C in windows applications.

game why split render and tick

So that your game "physics" will run at the same speed regardless of the computer speed by skipping rendering (which, traditionally, has taken more time thatn the "physics").

how do you win death rally

Finish before the others.

how expensive is smoothstep

Let's see.

((x) * (x) * (3 - 2 * (x)))

I see three multiplications there. However, compared to whatever you're going to apply smoothstep to, this is probably rather trivial cost.

how much is it to rent a sandwich kiosk

Over 9000?

how to find amplitude and period

In your sampling, find the minimum and maximum value. That'll be your amplitude. The time between two peaks is the period.

how to make a sphere using paper

First, find a sphere you can use, like a football or glass sphere. Next, tear the paper into tiny bits. Boil the paper bits for a while, and then, while it's still wet, cover the sphere with the paper. Let dry. You may need to apply some glue, but I can't remember how that bit went. Anyway.

i finished my army service how can i write in my cv

Assuming you weren't doing anything classified, just write truthfully and you should be okay.

what does r6030 crt not initialized mean

The runtime library gets called before being initialized. This may happen, for instance, when DLLs get initialized in a wrong order. It's tricky.

which is faster operation bitmask or left shift operator?

Depends. Benchmark it. In most cases, it doesn't matter.

why do full screen old games conflict with explorer direct draw

Microsoft messed up. Most likely they just don't care.

why turn head toward faint sound

Survival instinct.

why was let it snow written

If we only knew. Oh wait, why would we care? Possibly for monetary gain, anyway.

2d to sphere mapping

If you have problems figuring out why this is difficult, just try to wrap a piece of paper around a ball.

watcom assembly vertical retrace not being set

Windows dos box doesn't support vertical retrace.

bit twiddling multiply by 72

72-64=8, so we're taking n*64+n*8, or (n<<6)+(n<<3). It's not that hard.

can you explain how to express a xor b, where a and b are some conditions in terms of !, &&, and || operators?


common mistakes made with windows programming using visual c++6.0

I used to feel that visual studio got worse after 6.0, but it's gotten better since. Additionally, 6.0 has serious issues with multi-core machines, and the compiler is so bad at standards compared to the later ones that I really can't recommend it. And since the express editions are there for anyone to use, why use 6.0 anymore?

rendering cubes by hand

Pen, paper, line rule, calculator.

self modifying code 8051

Only with specially wired hardware - basically ram and rom being the same chip. How you populate the ram before letting the 8051 run is something I leave for you to think about.

typomagia source currently a mess, as I left it in a middle of refactoring it towards multiplayer use.

we all have the one friend who takes too much solarium...

We do? Really? Who's mine?

what does flc mean?

FLiCk, a 8-bit animation file format produced by autodesk animator, I think. Replaces FLIck files, adding better compression and removing some limitations.

what happens when an 8 bit operation is called on a 16 bit variable


why is the sol website is not working

It was probably slashdotted at the time.

sdl increase number of pixels

Increase resolution.

why do we have .com, .net, .fi etc

Good question. It's all about hierarch.. wait a minute, how did that search end up on this site?

alien spoon in brain


can we register the same window class twice

No. Second attempt fails. Luckily, you can edit the window class on the fly with SetWindowLong and negative offsets. Yes, it's a hack. Yes, it's documented in MSDN. No, I'm not making this up.

"bresenham line algorithm" "source code" open gl

If you're using OpenGL, which includes line primitives (ugly ones, granted), why are you looking into bressenham?

"fan for air, vivarium"

We use PC case fans. They're cheap and simple to use. Just plug in 12 volts.

"is graphics programming fun"

Beats analysing database access times, in my opinion. Although I guess that can be fun too.

"spherical heightmap"

Representing any map of a spherical object is tricky, heightmap or otherwise.

"tutorial, interpolate a simple animation"

Take position 1. Take position 2. Calculate delta (difference) between the two. Increment position 1 by a fraction of this delta until you reach position 2. That's it.

"why is putpixel(320+x,240-round(y),color) used in computer graphics"

I don't have any idea, really. I don't think you should. Instead, you should be drawing a bunch of pixels at once.

+animations +autodesk +flh

+animations +autodesk +flx

As far as I know, neither file formats are not in the wild. They are (supposedly) extended fli/flc files with 16 or 24bit color.

1 bit graphics programming in c

Do 8 pixels at once. It may get a bit tricky but it's doable.

1 point to start creating own mmorpg game


1) write a program to change the working mode from text to graphics and plot a pixel.

I took it from hero's quest 2, don't know the actual origin.

aero will use the solsole mode


are demos still written in assembly

Sometimes. Rarely. On exotic (or legacy) platforms all the time. Also in some performance-critical places, as well as when doing size optimization.

atanua velleman does not work

And you didn't consider sending me a mail about it?

bachelor thesis display checkerboard vga controller

Doesn't sound like a much of a thesis to me.. more like a FPGA course project, and a simple one even then.

gta 4 how to make english language

Buy the English version?

how force win xp vesa framebuffer video mode

You don't. XP doesn't work that way. There's no access to the video BIOS the same way it was possible in DOS and win9x.

how is bit manipulation faster than arithmetic

Bits get toggled. Arithmetic needs to understand values. That's how I'd see it.

how to create mmorpg characters in html


how to draw a game screen without doing per-pixel stuff

Draw sprites instead, or something. Blit stuff. Draw textured rectangles.

how to draw cubes with bits missing

Alpha textures? Of course you'll get sorting issues, but you can solve those by first rendering backfaces and then the front ones.

There was a VESA call for that, but in practise I used the VGA retrace registers, seemed to work everywhere.

i want to design my own mmo

What's stopping you? Just pick pen and paper and off you go. Implementing your design is a different matter..

movement of blood through cells using opengl source code

That's... quite specific.

Uh.. all of them?

auto-contrast filter code

This is a bit tricky. Basically you need a histogram of the image you want to adjust contrast of, and then scale it. You may wish to apply some curve to the scaling to fix possible gamma issues. If correcting video feed, apply plenty of low pass filtering to avoid irritating artifacts.

big fan generator

Do something outrageous, and make sure you get a lot of publicity from it. Whatever it is, you're bound to get fans. Even serial killers have fans, for some odd reason.

In all the images I could find of said character with google image search, it seems to have its mouth shut, so that's a good question.

error! video mode 16x16x16 not available

That's one tiny screen you're trying to create. Try it without the fullscreen flag, and it just might work. No guarantees though; windows, at least, has some limitations on how small window you can create, at least if you want the window to be decorated.

find an mmo developer for your idea

Now, this is one great business idea. Shovelware MMOs built to order!

finished making character for mmorpg what next

Uh, using google is easier than picking up the manual?

game ground graphics looks like snow

Try white. Maybe with a slight tint of blue. The difficulty of portraying snow "correctly" comes from the fact that each of your eyes sees snow differently. Maybe with stereo 3d rendering, one day..
