Java programmers as ever - too stupid to figure out that when they're about to shoot, their rifle is aimed at their feet and they are in risk of losing their legs in the process.
Hmm. You don't know anything about me, my tastes, or my preferences. But I admire how you don't let that stop you from forging ahead with baseless accusations. And as to my age? I think I should probably be calling you "son". But I don't do that because I'm not an ass. (You've lost all semblance of being deserving of respect at this point, yet I persist because I'm better than you.)
So maintain your moldy code base and never touch anything other than C++. Let other stupid people code in those newfangled languages whilst you make those Gamecube ports. However, if you actually want to have a civil and useful discussion, I'm willing to give you another shot. If not, then that's great too. Just crawl off and die somewhere where the rest of us won't be distracted by the smell.

If you can't handle the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Swearing like mad and saying people should die shows you can't handle an argument with wit and tact. It is a sign of weakness and inadequacy on your part.
You actually operate under the assumption that the business world has a place for all of the shitty 'toy languages' your mind can conjure up.So maintain your moldy code base and never touch anything other than C++.

Trust me - if you were counting your Java/C# eggs before they actually hatched, I'd feel very insecure about your position in the jobs market right now. Have a lot of fun with that because performance-focused coding will start becoming more and more a priority as we target ever-slower platforms (especially ones where runtime performance is governed by battery usage - it pays to be high performing').
You're probably not a person I'd even want to talk to in the first place, so it isn't so much a case of 'willing to give you another shot' more that I frankly don't know who the hell you are and why I should even care about you and your argument. Notice that it is you engaging me in a conversation - I didn't ask you anything at all nor did I even ask you to start commenting (nor did you actually make a single point - not to mention you didn't even know Minecraft Pocket Edition on Kindle Fire is C++, not Java, which craps all over your own argument anyway). I'd have to say at this point that I really have zero interest in your opinion, so yeah, I'll brief you about the 'dying part' as soon as we get there - that might take another good 40 years though so I hope you can be as patient in this regard as you are of the garbage-collecting VMs you seem to like.However, if you actually want to have a civil and useful discussion, I'm willing to give you another shot

But let me break this to you - XNA was for kiddies at universities. No serious commercial game developer would ever touch it because of severe performance issues.
Real developers got themselves a developer's kit - it costs big bucks, it's called an XDK. It integrates with VS2010 (or 2012) - the compiler is MIcrosoft Visual C++ - no higher-level language at all. You can compile your code in C++ (11 - although only partial support) and C89. That's it. That's the current state of development here.
All of your commercial Xbox 360 games are made with this. Zero - I repeat zero - are made with the (now dead) XNA crap.
I repeat - the 'managed VM' was just for the kids and 'hobbyists' - it was not a serious proposal for real developers. You would know this if you had ever programmed in any professional capacity for this thing. Obviously you don't.
Sony actively 'gimped' their Vita 'public SDK' in the same way - no serious game developer would even think of touching it because it being reliant on C# means it is 'intentionally self-neutered' - not to mention they 'neutered' it in other ways as well.
Sorry but your managed environments' are still 'not good enough' on any commercial system. Keep looking for examples because the 'utopian scenario' has yet to materialize.
Meanwhile, I have a job to do, and performance targets to match (and beat). That is why I will continue using C/C++ while you are off daydreaming about an ideal world where everybody programs their guff in 'portable Java code' and it runs in a shiny VM everywhere with impeccable performance.

I remember asking a question and politely asking you to show me a modicum of respect - which you refused to do. Then you proceeded to misunderstand and argue against things I never said. For clarification, what I said was all these languages have their place, and I was willing to continue this discussion if you could be civil - if not, you could crawl off and die. Since you defaulted to being butthurt, I assume civility is beyond you. It was, after all, your choice.
As for having a discussion, you're not "discussing" anything. You're proselytizing and evangelizing all while pithily dismissing and ignoring points counter to your own. You're not looking for truth, you're claiming to have it. And like most religious nut cases, you don't seem to know your ass from third base. Just because you don't understand the point doesn't mean there wasn't one.
So no, as much as I hate to say this, we're not really on the same level. You've failed the litmus test for intelligence all the while insulting the intellect of everybody else and being condescending to anyone who disagrees with you. I know this is the Internet, but damn.
You can have the last word if you want. But in kind, I don't much care about what you think, either (since it can be summed up with "C++ is the only programming language and anybody who says differently is an idiot" as near as anyone here can tell.) I can't imagine why people would find that abrasive.
May you live in interesting times.
'And where did you get those i7 system requirments for Minecraft? Intel P4/NetBurst Architecture or its AMD Equivalent and 2 GB Ram. So a pentium 4 and a really low 2GB Ram. Not even close an i7. You really need help. '
Absolute dogshit what you posted here. Oh and BTW - '2GB RAM' is not 'really low RAM' when you consider that your average console does not even have 1/4th of that. I have the sneaking suspicion I am talking to an end-user by now masquerading as a 'bad programmer'. Who knows - I might not be far off there.
I have seen you lie in this thread over and over so I'm not even remotely surprised anymore.
Now obviously it has been established you are a desperate shittalker who doesn't know what he is talking about - case in point your assertion that 'nobody exceeds the Java VM heapsize limit' - tell that to the Ouya guys programming their games with their wonderful Unity-powered ODK. So obviously you are full of shit there.
You are furthermore full of shit because I have seen the same behavior in my own apps.
But hey - I am just supposed to take your word - because some Fievel Forumtroll that wrote a shitty game demo that didn't run at acceptable speeds said something to the opposite effect. Uhuh. Show me a Github page or something that proves even half of the shit you say. Until then, just shut up - you are ignored and you don't matter.
Oh BTW - I put you on ignore so apologies but I might not be around to read your (probably shit) reply. Not much point in reading stuff from a bad liar (but then again you're a Java brogrammer so anything goes) anyways.
There's probably a good chance a lot of you Java brogrammers will join the unemployment lines in the ensuing depression years - and I have to say, good riddance to the lot of you when that happens. I have absolutely zero sympathy for the lot of you. Your mentality is shit, your attitude is shit, your skills are shit, your language is shit, the IDEs you code in are shit, the VMs and OSes you run your software in are shit, the company that 'owns' your language is shit, your games are shit and run crappily (Minecraft), and frankly you all need to get out of the business before you start 'corrupting' the 'real' software engineering business.
Byebye now Java tards and keep failing and 'collecting' garbage while you count your cumulative millisecond stalls (which according to your braindead mind has 'absolutely no detrimental effects to performance'). Stupid morons.

Wow, another bland news story descends into a flame war for no real reason. Does anyone know a Linux-focussed news site that isn't full of dickheads? I'd like to go there.
Anybody calling themselves an 'entrepreneur' 99.99% of the time in software engineering translates into a scumbag piece of shit that can't even hack it. Failure or unwillingness to produce any code of course means you can build yourself up to be this 'great coding god' all you want without having to produce jack shit all evidence for it - which all feeds into the douchyness of your kind.
BTW - most of you 'indie dev' morons are plain talentless hack failures - I'd just like you to know that. You, Phil Fish, Mojang, Jonathan Blow - all of you are loudmouth dipshits who think they are something 'special' because you can make a Super Mario Bros 1 clone with a gimmick (rewind) or a Myst clone, or a 'game engine that looks worse than Quake 1'. Rovio got rich off 'using' an opensource framework (Box2D) and just having a bunch of women design cute fluffy birds all day. So the problem with your kind is - you act like you're 'entitled' to money, like you're 'entitled' to be 'entrepreneurial' and shit but you expect the 'tools' you use to 'grow rich' to still remain free. Well, you can't have both dipshit - you are either a cockroach who is all about 'himself' or you help out your fellow man and help out the world by sharing the stuff you are doing for the betterment of whatever 'knowledge economy' there is. Failure to do that means you are a parasite who is all too happy to 'stand on the shoulder of giants' but not contribute a damn motherfucking thing yourself. That is my reason for calling you what you are - a 'cockroach', failing that a 'parasite'. That is what you are. Just like the people on Wall Street who you think are such great people for you to 'imitate'.
Then why the fuck don't you get off this site then? Your scumbag kind doesn't even seem to belong here. Imagine if the people behind the Linux kernel and/or Mesa shared your attitude - you wouldn't have anything to run your (closed source) piece of shit game engine on in the first placeThe fact that your code is open source and mine isn't doesn't say anything about me. It doesn't mean that my code is inferior as you like to believe. In fact the best game engines are closed source.
But hey, I know plenty of FLOSS tards these days who talk just like you. You are a symptom of the cancer that is surrounding modern 'homegrown' development.
Must feel good, having sold out right?
Hey cockroach, THIS IS HOW HOMEBREW/OPEN SOURCE WORKS - this is HOW WE ROLL since the '80s and '70s - you provide your SHIT FOR FREE and you provide your SOURCE. This is how this motherfucking community used to work before piece of shit maggots like you found out there was a way to 'profit' from shitty homegrown code on dipshit App Stores. Michael Abrash started talking elaborately about the tech behind Quake 1's source code the VERY SAME YEAR the game was published in the spirit of 'INFORMATION SHOULD BE OPEN' - something a disgusting cockroach llike you don't even believe in. And what the motherfuck do you have to offer in your dipshit 'game engine' that a guy like Abrash couldn't? Exactly jack shit all that is what, Junior.Reading your posts here and on RetroArch forum you seem to have a very socialist (not say communist) worldview. Just because you don't make any money from RetroArch doesn't mean I shouldn't from my work.
You, your fucking 'Valley attitude', your merry band of failure 'startup entrepreneurs' and the companies that 'enable you' (Google/Apple) can all go fuck off and die as far as I am concerned. Is that plain enough for you bubba?
Oh, but your shitty 'game engine 101' is, right? (the source which we can't even look into because you are a shit-faced wannabe 'entrepreneur' that thinks he is going to 'make it big' when he never will).RetroArch isn't exactly a cure for cancer in programming difficulty and yes I did write my own game engine.
'Android' games are nothing more (99.9% of the time) than 'run-me-down' iOS ports. Nobody on Earth who is serious about programming is 'loving' this piece of garbage and even fewer use it as their 'primary' platform - that always remains iOS (I guess that must be because despite all things - Android is still 'really great', right?).The fact that you don't get along with Android says more about you than about Android since the rest of the game devs (and whole world actually) seem OK with it. It's not perfect but it's not horrendeous either.
The reason they don't speak out against it in public (about the obvious thousand issues that are wrong with this Android garbage) is because they want to maintain close and 'friendly' ties to Google and because most programmers are spineless, gutless nerds that waive all their rights and their right to an own opinion as long as it meansa a company employs them and they are a few months removed from the unemployment lines.
Then you have the scumbag maggot kind (like you) that self-identifies as an 'entrepreneur' and defend Android simply because their 'lax policies' on their store makes you think this is a 'great ticket' to 'growing rich' - most of your larvae kind don't give a crap about the actual quality of your programs or the enjoyment factor - as long as you become the 'next Steve Jobs/Bill Gates' in terms of raking in ill-gotten gains.
You and your kind are cancer and it's good to see you identified how I see your disgusting bottom-feeding kind - I know exactly what your cockroach kind is about. You can take your 'apps should be monetized' fetish and you can SHOVE IT right up your fat hillbilly ass.
