Re: Maia Backer Alpha 0.36 Release Notes.

I made a livestock pen, put some red glowsticks in and walked away. 30 minutes later my screen was moving in slow-motion filled with tons of chickens! I realized I couldn't get rid of them. It will be nice to see them get eaten by some alien fauna in later builds! Great work! One thing bugs me thoug...

Re: Maia Backer Alpha 0.34 Release Notes.

This is the error I get if I start the game, and just watch: It causes an access violation exception to be thrown, I'd guess an invalid or null pointer is accessed, and it may be related to other crashes I'm seeing. "Maia.exe has stopped working" dialog "problem details" section: Problem signature: ...

Re: Maia Backer Alpha 0.34 Release Notes.

The object the last time was a room. I made the crash occur by placing the room type workshop, then immediately adjacent to it I placed a Hydroponics type room and it crashed. Another time I was trying to cycle through the rooms and forgot the key(s). I thought it was the "J" key, so I kept hitting ...

Programming Languages

Someone asked about game development in C++. I have made some text-based games in C/C++ and found that due to the complexity of (or lack thereof) my games I didn;t use many of the features from C++, so I could have written it in C. I personally prefer C/C++ over other languages (I abhor Java). That ...

Re: Maia Backer Alpha 0.28 release notes.

I noticed several graphics issues are no longer there (0.26 to 0.28 release) and my framerate has tripled (40-90 now). There is a weird issue that crops up frequently, where when selecting a type of item to place, the order in which you scroll through them is not predictable; for example, sometimes ...

Re: Maia Backer Alpha 0.26 release notes.

I have had the black square issue, and everything else works great with the Catalyst 13.4 drivers on my desktop with 2x Radeon HD 7750s (mid-range card). My Mac Air (2011) is a different story though. Apple uses poor or outdated hardware in most of it's computers (tablets and phones excluded). My Ma...

Re: Quick engine test build

IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The planet shows up, meteor flashes and all! It looks better than the linux version (I haven't upgraded the linux driver yet). I can build things and add lights, see the terrain and IMP bot. Works just like the Linux Test Build, with the same black squares on the left and a...
