Better to find bugs and fix them and improve than to stay on old versions.

Dunge Change techno (306 comments)

I've been a C++ programmer for 10 years, going from 3D programming to embedded computing. This year I started doing C# WPF/WCF with dependency injection and MVPVM pattern, it's a whole new world.

Controversial Torrent Streaming App 'Popcorn Time' Shuts Down, Then Gets Reborn

Dunge YIFY (199 comments)

Great idea, too bad YIFY torrents are always very compressed and quality is far from the real scene releases.

Crytek Ports CRYENGINE To Linux Support Ahead of Steam Machines Launch

Dunge What is missing? (132 comments)

I know CryEngine used intensively DirectX 11 features and that OpenGL is not as advanced for shaders, so I guess they had to cut into some neat features?

Portal 2 Incompatible With SELinux

Dunge And it begin (212 comments)

Linux is not ready for gaming, Valve is making a huge mistake. Developers will try and encounter tons of problems like that and most will abandon the port project. Just going from DirectX to OpenGL is a lot of hard work for nothing from a graphic programmer stand point.

Microsoft Confirms DirectX 12 Is Alive and Well, Demo Coming At GDC

Dunge Re:Why not open source it? (127 comments)

No, the purpose of DirectX is to make the best graphics API available so that developers use it, and it's doing an awesome job at it. The fact that is not cross-platform is only because Microsoft don't see any advantages at working for free and doing it, why would they?

Microsoft Confirms DirectX 12 Is Alive and Well, Demo Coming At GDC

Dunge Re:Better be for Windows 7 (127 comments)

You are the naive one in this situation. Just because it look like a good opportunity to hate Microsoft doesn't mean that you are right.

Microsoft Confirms DirectX 12 Is Alive and Well, Demo Coming At GDC

Dunge Re:Fucking idiotic (127 comments)

Your post prove that you got out of computer graphics long ago, because it's quite ignorant. The game changed a lot since you checked it, and no, it's not just polygons and shading anymore, or else games would look like total shit like that 2000's era.

Microsoft Confirms DirectX 12 Is Alive and Well, Demo Coming At GDC

Dunge Nice (127 comments)

Slashdot is filled with haters, but just to do the inverse I'm really happy about this. DirectX always been top-notch, high-tech and the easiest API to work with for developers along with the best performance from shaders (yeah I know OpenGL have more brute draw calls per sec). This will push graphic technology forward. I'm very eager to see it, and I'm happy that Microsoft is still going because ATI Mantle was limited to a single vendor and couldn't succeed for this only reason.

IEEE Predicts 85% of Daily Tasks Will Be Games By 2020

Dunge Games are not points (146 comments)

Games are not achievements, games are not scores and character build. That's only a small subset of games, the games that I don't play. There are artistic games, action games, story-based games that don't have elements mentioned here.

Portal 2 Beta Released For Linux

Dunge Re:Just dual boot already (99 comments)

If Portal crash, you have a serious issue with your computer because it's one of the easiest game to execute. Install your drivers dude. As for Linux being stable for servers, well that's exactly what Linux excel at, you give it some predetermined set of applications and rules and you stick with it. Totally the inverse of using a computer for a desktop usage (which include playing games) where you keep changing installed applications all the time. Windows is still far far ahead on this domain.
