Re: I got ideas for SV5


Ah.. Too much to read...

All talks about nice computers to decide what is better. PFF!! I have a pentium 1 100mhz now with 56mb of ram!! SV seens fine for me!!

Ok, IP2 took me 6 or 7 seconds of frozen screen every 10 impulses, but WHAT THE PROBLEM?? No Patience?? I did a download of 8mb with 0.2k per second!! I did a 12mb download with 1.3k per second!!! It's just patience!! What the matter with few seconds of a fronzen screen???

But, this I must say, sorry Dion:

SV isn't a well-projected game, in programming. I saw many games that needs much more resourses from the computer and it run excelent. As Destruction Derby 2. Full 3d, really fast game play. RUNS EXCELENT!! Now look to SV. It don't play SO THAT WELL on my computer...

WHY???

LOL.

So you question the usefulness of MOSFETs and then you go on to say that you use them in every project you make. How contradictory.

Anyways, the practical uses of MOSFETs? Computers. Cell phones. Calculators. DVD players. Pretty much ALL ELECTRONICS IN EXISTENCE use MOSFETs.

And you call yourself an Electronics master.

Re: I got ideas for SV5


Alright! I know how to operate ICs. If I made a project without transistors, then I will not have made a multiplexed digit counter. One example of that is my digital light meter. That circuit use 6 transistors, 2 555 timer ICs (I usually prefer a 556 dual timer IC), 1 MM74C926 counter IC, and some discrete components.

Right now, I'm developing a compact oscilloscope. I'm making the schematic so that I can rebuild it when I take it apart. I'm using soderless breadboards, but that will soon change to PC Boards.

Unfortunently SV is programmed in an archaic programming language called Delphi, which is loosely based on the even more ancient programming language, Pascal. Neither is efficient to say the least, however, it is not the graphics that cause SV to run slowly. It is the AI scripting, which is also based on pascal, that is slow. And usually what makes it worse is when a dumb inefficient brain, such as infinity player, is programmed inefficiently by a dumb programmer, such as Beat2k. If you were to make the scenario run brains such as tinygeneral, even 8 of them would be no problem for any computer. However as you expand the number of starsystems and the massive size in general of brains and number of brains, then this increases the math and computations significantly. My advice: Don't use Infinity Player as your AI. Use something more efficient and slender, tinygeneral, or if you want complex, Rydia, KR-Ellen, KRBS, etc.

Where I download tinygeneral??

Death Nova U isn't a good AI? It looks good... I loose to it several times, except when I use blitz...

HEY! KRBS isn't so good!! My BStillven is better! Mine wins! And it's very simple! (BattleStation and Startillery in Venom. Yes! No warships!)

As I say: "The simplicity always is better!"

This explain why IP2 is so bad!! HEHEHE!! Sorry beat, but you know, IP2 sucks.

HEY! Any one know how to do an AI build ships from the BS??

IP3 will have code that solves the slow problem. It is simpler than IP2, and it does almost everything that IP2 does and even more. I already made the base script for IP3.
Unlike IP2, it will not build freighters.

I never lose to AIs. You must reach a certain point as a player of games where AIs are child's play. Even in other games, but more specifically SV & Winwar.

Weak.

Right now, I'm working on a machine that can play streaming audio off Ethernet. It uses some thousands of transistors. And I don't use that breadboard/solder crap. I use a Field Programmable Gate Array, which is imbedded on a Xilinx board.

Re: I got ideas for SV5


Hhehehehe!! Not my case! Let's say I tie against AIs. But there somethings that does me to loose:

1. I use 640x480 resolution. I waste a lot of time for scrolling the screen.

2. I'm not so quick on mouse. No matter how I try, on any game I play better with keyboard. On ALL type of games, including Doom-like and Arkanoid, games you bet are better on mouse.

3. I distract easly! This because my TV is always on, and it's just a 45o degree from the computer.

Starz, if you want a challenge, give 1000 impulses of advandage to Death Nova. But don't do REALLY NOTHING while it reaches. After this, try beat it. Quite challenge, and I can beat Death Nova with something near. (1st get stars, 2nd attack, Death Nova conquers my stars before I do that...)

But my 2nd best game was against Death Nova. 5000 impulses. WOW!
