  1. Embarcadero in Action LIVE! in Munich

    Yesterday I was at Embarcadero in Action LIVE! in Munich. Well, not exactly in Munich, but near Munich, but that's an another story
    I was never at one of Embarcadero events, so this was a whole new experience for me. As I expected I was the youngest one there and probably the only one interested in multimedia and game development. About half of the event was spent on promoting database products.
    They showed some of the new features of Delphi XE and C++ Builder XE such as Subversion ...
  2. New Blood & Beginner GAME Tutorials

    Hey everyone!

    I've been talking quite a bit with Pascal Programming for Schools site co-creator, Dr. Norman Morrison about ideas that would help better introduce students and young people to Pascal. It's also gotten me to think about how accessible PGD is to those new to making games with Pascal. There is a lot of information on the site in the older threads in the forums, but much of that covers rather advanced topics such as working with 3D meshes or HDR or the next API header or ...
  3. Some graphic benchmarking

    So I was thinking, after going to all this trouble of making OpenGl work with Sdl in an easy interface - how much slower would it be than plain old sdl?

    So I came up with two small little programs to test this out. Prometheus_Vid would go up against sdl_image and sdl. The challenge was simple: how many pixels of a png can each contestant blit in 1 second. The destination would be a 640x480 windows in 32 bit colour mode. No flags for sdl, no special performance modes for Prometheus. ...

  4. Documentation and Wikis

    So lately, I've been throwing in a little more time than usual at Prometheus. No biggie there. But I did stumble accross an interesting fact of life: setting up an Easy To Find wiki on sourceforge is not the best of ideas. Yes, I'm fully aware it works - but you have to litterally search for it!

    So I thought a while and tadatadaaaaa: came to mind (ok, so it was my 1st google search and the top result ) but after that trek I was stumped by a greater foe: Tag Line. ...

ID:	185Well I finally got one and I love it. When I was younger, I used to dream about such devices after watching several episodes of Star Trek and seeing how great such an idea was to have a tablet sized computer that you can take with you and set it down ready to use almost everywhere. Well now I've got one and it's awesome.

    One of the most exciting things about having this new device, other than all the cool apps that you can get, is the fact that I can also ...
