    The content section is way too wide. Optimal reading length is around 70-80 characters for english text. Don't let the articles expand beyond that horizontally, otherwise its hard for your eyes to...

    OOP has actually very little to do with the "class" keyword. That's just a convenience. You can build powerful object oriented systems in C using function pointers. To harness OOP you basically...

    Of course you're never directly copy pasting between projects. That's really difficult to do with any code and is not specific to game engines. Code needs to be modified to suit what it's moving...

    I like how you managed to put the rest of the forum down acting as if you're smarter than everyone else without actually providing your own opinion. Now no one can claim you're wrong since you...

    Game engines often contain lots of code that is useful beyond games. Torque had a really impressive network stack for example.

    You can never predict where people might take the code and using a...

    I think its worth the trouble to switch to something that is GPL compatible. Any GPL compatible license is better than the CDDL. Choosing a GPL incompatible license is usually done to spite GPL...

    If you want to go copyleft, go full copyleft and use the GPL. Using half-way between licenses is like saying "I want copyleft, but if you REALLY want to ignore I guess you can in some cases."

    MPL or Apache please. CDDL is a bad license. Although I personally see no reason not to go full GPL.

    I'm so fucking sick of "fast-pased FPS" that's code word for "quake-clone FPS". Somebody do something original.

    PhysX was designed so that it can fall back on the CPU if you don't have an nVIDIA card. So yes you don't _need_ an nVIDIA card, but without one there is a lot more strain on the CPU, that and the...

    I agree with you on that. Apple isn't blocking anything, they're just not agreeing to the copyright assignment that the FSF wants. I don't think that makes the FSF greedy, but I don't think that...

    What is EGL and why is it so important?

    I see a lot of talk about EGL in relation to Gallium, Mesa and Wayland. I believe that Wayland has its own EGL implementation called "eagle" but mesa also has an implementation of EGL.

    What...

    Your argument about a windows PC makes no sense. Just because some software is given by Microsoft doesn't make it not a gerenal purpose PC. I can still download and install all kinds of non...

    I'm running it because I don't want to be stuck on the same kernel with the same drivers and the same X server until the open source driver is a viable replacement. My whole system shouldn't have to...

    What really kills me is how much slower the open source driver is at 3D. Games that I could play on my laptop with fglrx I can no longer play in newer distros with the open source drivers, the...

    nVIDIA's open source efforts? Haha yeah right. Just because the API is documented does not make it open source.

    Also if we just pick vdpau then we're stuck with nVIDIA hardware. In my opinion...

    Haha trolling? I'm not trolling.
