Sooo Prom was last night! It was off the hook. The dance was great and my date and I had a great time! The school hired a real DJ and the DJ had a screen set up so that if you looked at the like 1000 people on the dance floor the giant screen was playing music videos for all the songs! It was crazzzyyyy! I was really hoping to see Elyse there though :/ I did see her but it was for like a split second *sigh* She looked gorgeous too and Behki and I couldn't find her the rest of the night till we saw her leave :/ it really sucked. I'm starting to think she isn't interested at all. Kinda disappointing. I really wanted a chance with her. From what I've seen and from the few short conversations we've had, she seems like just my kinda girl. Eh, whatever, I just got off work and I'm dead tired so I'm out now.

Blahh girls

I feel like being obnoxious so I am using limegreen haha. Anyway there's this girl (i know typical cliche blah blah) but like I don't know. This isn't about just hooking up and what not (i have some other girl all up on me trying to get that and I don't want any part of that). This girl, Elyse, is gorgeous and like gahhhhh. I don't know I feel like I'm just bitching haha but I have been trying to get to know her. She works with one of my best friends, Behki. Behk has been trying to help me out some and I appreciate it. Behki thinks she is in to me but I have tried to get her to hang out and she just seems either super busy or like doesn't really wanna chill. I have texted her some but she doesn't text very much. I'll see her at prom on friday though so maybe I can steal a dance from her and finally get a chance to meet her more thoroughly.

K bitching abotu girls is done for the time being haha. I gotta hit the sack. Still 3 more weeks of school.

Computer Programming 2 Final Project
by Regretfulone ... May 12, 2010, 10:06:03 PM
Soooo I have to make a project with some kid who basically cheated through the whole class. Sadly I have to split the work evenly with him but I feel like he really doesn't know how to code very well. I have decided to let him do the graphics and focus on the main character and hope that satisfies my teacher haha.

Ok so the project we are working on is a vertical scrolling shooter game. The main character is going to be a fighter pilot and you will "fly" forward through the level shooting down the enemies to gain money and points. I am going to be working on the mechanical stuff behind the scenes like collision tests and making sure that the pilot can't go off the screen. The more daunting task I need to complete is writing the AI for the enemy pilots that will come on to the screen at certain points. I also feel like it might be a little difficult to figure out when to bring the enemy pilots onto the screen and how. Suggestion would be appreciated if anyone has any.

P.S. the project is all in c++ using allegro for graphics

Glad you could understand that!  Grin

To create a mission, we will define a text file with the following format:
M {version}
{enemy 1}
{enemy 2}
{enemy N}

The file starts with a capital M. If this is not the case, the load will fail.
The {version} will let you tell the mission spec at load time.
Where {LDN} is a definition with this data:
<Wave Length> <Enemy Density> <Numbe... Read More

Thanks Richard! that definitely helped get me on the right track. I can see how you would use that to help split up enemies and where they start and stuff like that. I'll try and work that into some code that works with the project Smiley

Okay, so I haven't gotten around to writing a demo of code for you Sam.
However, I did write this up.
Perhaps it will help you.

The game world is split along the Y axis into N "logical sectors".
Each logical sector is split into D "zones" along the X axis.
Each logical sector is (L * the height of your game screen) pixels high.
Each zone is (your game screen width / D) pixels wide.

N = number of waves of e... Read More
