I must be missing something here.

Surface normal of a raster image. Isn't that, like, ALWAYS (0, 0, -1)?

I'm guessing he meant interpreting color/brightness values as elevation?

I just built my rather giant 3d engine on windows, after months of developing it on the mac, with almost no issues. Makes me happy. Also I'm glad that MingW exists. It would have taken me forever to get it properly setup with all of its dependencies in MSVC.

no, imagine you have drawn terrain, like hills or wtv, and you want to know the angle of a certain portion of terrain, imagine it as a 2d normal.

heres a random picture from GIS to explain



imagine you wanted to know the slopes normal at a certain point, so that your static snowboarder is standing at the proper angle on the slope, but all you had was an image like this.

imagine you drew your graphic (lets say grant ?) standing on flat ground and you wanted him to look like he does in that image, when hes standing on any given point of the slope, thats where you need the normal. and i found a way to do just that

which makes me happy xD

I jumped ship from my gagantuan project in c++ (which was meant to be small and compact, and stuff, but grew into a monstrosity) to a nice little thingy in Python where progress is being made! And I didn't even know Python before this - it only took a few days to feel comfortable with it.

Also, my little sprite man now falls down due to the power of GRAVITY!

I'm happy because FlashDevelop is working! I haven't got the spaceman game switched over yet (I have to switch over to manually embedded resources instead of using the library). But I've got something else working:

I've got a great idea on how to implement component based programming in C, and I'm excited to start coding it in. (The complete failure will be a great learning experience)  Evil

C ? I'm expecting to see you in the grumpy programmer room before long.

It may sound dumb, but I tend to naturally make simple things outrageously complex. So right now, the "story vs gameplay progression" system I'm digging look just as I want it to be. Work in progress...  Smiley

I've just ported the core game mechanics of my current game project from C# XNA to C++ SDL.
My C++ is rusty like a tin man so I'm very pleased.

I'm happy because everytime I build a new thing using Windows Forms it looks more professional, has better user experience values and takes less time to build.
Yay for slowly learning how to use tools correctly. Smiley

I'm happy because I'm starting a no-deadlines, no-pressure roguelike project for myself using Common Lisp.  This makes me happy because a) I'm making use of this Lisp book I bought a while ago, b) I likes learning new coding languages, and c) I found a pretty nice high-level 2d game lib (named "Pixel Art Library", or PAL) that I can use in both Windows and Linux.  Once I had the library installed correctly, I could start dumping junk to the screen in about as few lines as an equivalent Processing sketch.  This also made me very happy.

Hopefully I will reach the point of Lisp enlightenment where I'm writing my own macros and scoffing at all lesser languages that don't allow you such luxuries.  That and/or maybe I'll have a weird roguelike to share with everyone.

Oh and also this page at roguebasin makes me happy because it lets me stop over analyzing what to implement first or what features I am going to need.  There should be more lists like this.
