I managed to crash it somehow. Not sure what I did. Will have to investigate further. I welcome topic suggestions BTW.

Don't try it, guys. I joined it more than half an hour ago just to test it and now I'm still talking in there. It just takes too much time, Oddball! Crazy

This is a better chat program than debate program, mostly because all these great minds think far too alike!  Cheesy

Yeah, we pretty much instantly go on the same side and then tell each other how great our decision was Tongue

Haha Cheesy Yes the debates have been a little one sided at times. You guys gave me loads of great ideas for improvements too. Gentleman

I had a ropey internet connection so apologies to the people who got kicked when it went down.

I'll still be chatting away if anyone else wishes to join in. Thanks to everyone who stopped by.

Okay, so a few topics:

Pizza vs Hot Dogs
Programming vs Game Maker, Unity etc (I forgot what the word for that is)
Television vs Cinema
3d movies vs Normal movies
Oldschool games vs Modern games
2d games vs 3d games
Firefox vs Chrome (vs Safari - I'm wondering if 3-way debates would get too much. Probably.)
PC games vs Console games
Meat vs Fish


Oh, and another feature (perhaps not a good idea after I've posted so much crappy topics): Topic rating! Might be a nice statistic for you!

And ingame topic suggestion. Harness the power of web 2.0! Tongue

Portables Vs. Consoles. I meant to suggest that in the chat, but it slipped my mind.

  • Joined/left logging
  • Change topic/extend time requesting for guests
  • Time stamps
  • Message limit of 256 characters

EDIT: Thanks to those that popped in for a debate. There was some really good discussion. Spotted a few bugs though and the Mac version I was running quit unexpectedly. I guess there's still a few bugs to squash yet.

RC2a is mainly bug fixes with no major feature additions. I'm hoping this will be the final version with only more topics to add for it to be finished.

I'm hosting another test session for a couple of hours if people would like to join me.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by. Had lots of people on at one point and it worked really well.

This wil probably be the final version. Everything is in and hopefully all the bugs are fixed. I did run out of ideas for discussion topics, there's about two hours worth total ATM. Hopefully I'll find some inspiration for more topics before the compo finishes.

Topic suggestion:

Operating systems
Proprietary
  vs.    
Free and Open

Just saying, I'd love to try the game. And the step from Mac support to Linux support isn't that big. Smiley

My code is Linux ready, but I don't have a Linux machine to compile it on. What's a good/easy to use Linux distro? I'll see about getting it installed on my virtual machine.

Oh my god is Linux the most complex OS in the world!? Everything seems to be dependent on something else and it is guaranteed that you will be missing that something else.  Anyway after much faffing I have installed linux and made a build. I just hope it works.

Thank you for taking the time to add linux support, even if it's messy. Personally, I find all code that has to be compiled difficult to distribute. I'm impressed that you manage to do it properly. Much, much love for you Smiley

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to work properly for me. The User-name-dialogue opens properly, but once I hit "OK" I get a:

Code:
$ ./arguementor
Segmentation fault

I am running a fresh Ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit) installation.

Edit: When retrying a few minutes later, it works perfectly. Now I can't get it to crash. Weird, but good. Smiley

Glad it worked eventually. I did notice that pressing the Enter key when entering the username caused a fault, I had to actual click the ok button. My mini rant wasn't completely serious, after all I had just installed an OS for the first time ever and compiled an app for it in less than an hour total. One thing I should point out for all versions is they won't run straight from the zip, they need to be extracted to work correctly.

Great! And it does seem like it was the enter-pressing that was the problem, after all. I should test things properly, before I start complaining, heh

As a programmer, I must say that working in a Unix-like environment is invaluable. I've only been at it for a year, but I've become completely dependant on it. New things always take some effort to learn, but this one is well worth it!
