You could put a Game Design section with some programs for workflows, word processing softwares, prototypes, etc... I could use a good workflow program.

I wanted to give a nod to Siege, a free HTTP load testing app that lets you quickly stress a website. It works great, of course, attacking from a virtual server, but also still provides very useful heuristics when run from a dev machine.

www.joedog.org/siege-home/

Runs on *nix, mac osx, etc.

Here's a little installation script:

Code:
cd ~/
curl -L -C - -O http://www.joedog.org/pub/siege/siege-latest.tar.gz
tar -xvf siege-latest.tar.gz
cd siege-*
./configure
make
make install
cd ~/
rm -rf siege-*

Siege a site like so:

Code:
siege -c 100 -r 10 -b http://forums.tigsource.com/

Sample output:

Code:
** SIEGE 2.72
** Preparing 25 concurrent users for battle.
The server is now under siege..      done.

Transactions:         250 hits
Availability:      100.00 %
Elapsed time:        2.93 secs
Data transferred:        1.34 MB
Response time:        0.25 secs
Transaction rate:       85.32 trans/sec
Throughput:        0.46 MB/sec
Concurrency:       21.59
Successful transactions:         250
Failed transactions:           0
Longest transaction:        0.75
Shortest transaction:        0.14

IIRC, it's used by various GREE developers, so there's some gamedev use in the wild.

For doing HTTP load testing, I'd also recommend ApacheBench (http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/programs/ab.html), as a simple and well-supported tool.

Of course standard disclaimers apply - load testing should be done from a separate machine, over a real network connection, httpd should live on a box similar to the final server setup, etc. Smiley

Yep. Unless you've taken the time (and expense) to setup real world scenarios, these tests should be treated as heuristics like I said, and their results are not the type of thing you'd share in public as representative of your capacity. With that in mind, the more heuristics the better, and ab is also nice.

Code:
ab -n 100 -c 10 http://forums.tigsource.com/

By comparison here is the output:

Code:

^ More people than you think still use it, I just found out about it about 6 months ago and I was surprised to see that on some peoples live streams they use it constantly.

That's a really good list of tools you got, but the only thing I would add is Rubber Duck for music.

Hi, I'm developing a (really)simple level editor with Ogre3d engine (but the level files could be used in other engines with a good amount of will).
The beta will be out this weekend, can I open a thread in "feedback" even if it's not a game?

I posted here also because some of you may be interested, the plan is to release the source code so it could be used and/or extended by other developers.

Links in my signature.



I'm not asking to add it to the op.

3 of these categories are missing what I would consider the most important entries for each. Namely;

Audio
Reaper is the only low-cost DAW that can realistically compete with the likes of Logic, Pro Tools, and Cubase. Anything else in the price range is either going to baby you through a restrictive workflow only well suited to certain electronic genres (like FL Studio) or just end up being a glorified general MIDI notation program.

Get Reaper plus a used copy of any of the last several versions of NI Komplete and you'll probably have more power than you know what to do with.

Text Editor/IDE
Sublime Text has too many quality of life improvements over every other text editor for me to properly summarize how much of an impact it's had on my efficiency. I can no longer stand using anything else. It has plugins for just about any application imaginable, and the fully functional free trial is time limited only by the honour system. The website does a good job of selling you on its features.

Version Control
git, period. Nobody in their right mind should still be using CVS or SVN for new projects these days.

If you need to manage huge amounts of binary data in your repo, there's also git-annex.

This has probably been suggested already, but what about SunVox for music and SFX? It's a fantastic program.

The list says notepad++ is cross-platform but it is actually only for Windows. I also use Sublime Text.

Hi guys - this one's only really applicable if you use Unity.

If you do, then we've got an awesome plugin - it's a chat window that fits in the IDE and you can ask other devs questions and post pictures of cats. It's beta at the moment, so you'll have to email me at [email protected] - I'll send you a version immediately!



I'll post back here when we do a general release, but if you love living on the edge then get the beta version.

You can also follow @icoplay for updates!

I came here hoping someone else had brought up the gaping hole in the original post where Sublime Text should be listed.

The fact that Graphics Gale is not listed makes me sad :c

I think it's the best sprite tool ever made by humanity.
