    Real Life Gravity Gun not so far fetched

    I thought valve were just hashing theorys together with the gravity gun but it appears it's based on the hutchison effect which has been proven to exist: Maybe Hutchison gives you the manipulator in HL2 :dozey: http://www.geocities.com/ResearchTriangle/Thinktank/8863/HEffect1.html I...

    Java

    I just made my first Java app and I must say my experience with Java so far has been very good. Only haveing to reffere to one API is fantastic and the way java forces you to do certain things is brilliant.

    http://www.firingsquad.com/hardware/far_cry_nvidia/ I find this very interesting, it's not just the nvidia cards that use PS 1.1 Ati's do aswell meaning this game has some serious nerv calling itself a SM 2.0 game and even more nerve to suggest SM3.0 will make a difference when it's barely...

    M$ at it again, they are scum

    sounds suspicious... read the rest here: http://www.crn.com/sections/BreakingNews/breakingnews.asp?ArticleID=48597 The fact that M$ has anything to do with SCO (the anti open source people) is enough to make me angry but the fact it might be them funding SCO's anti Linux law suites is...

    Pong game I made - source code inside

    As a bit of practice I decided to make a pong game in a graphics API called allegro I found in dev-c++'s packages. It's the first program I'v done that isn't command line based, although it's by no means the most complex. It's not finnished yet, I plan on adding some sound and an AI that...

    Realtime soft shadows demo!

    It's not just a shadow demo either there are some interesting physics in there, if you hold down the right mouse button over a object it acts like the gravity gun. It's not like those other crappy soft shadows, these are the real thing. You need atleast a DX9 graphics card though and the...
