comment What are your favourite game-specific coding gems?
By the way, do note that there's a more accurate "magic number" to use in the fast inverse square root function: 0x5f375a86 ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… )

comment How to handle Multiple-accounts creation and cheating?
Remember that the really good cheaters will have proxies so that their multiple accounts are actually on different IPs. Don't make "same IP" a required criterion when looking for people cheating in this manner.

comment I love game development books but they're so expensive!
@Kylotan I feel the same, not to mention I find it really hard to read e-books from my computer screen, and my Kindle is only really good for front-to-back books whereas I like to flip around and sometimes make notes in my "serious" books.

comment What are good games to “earn your wings” with?
Excellent answer. Really disappointing end there. It'd be amazing if you could revisit this and tie it together somehow to give it a coherent ending.

comment Creating meaningful and engaging quests
And those "sensible" players are perfectly content with cookie cutter quests because that's what they are purposely boiling it down to by skipping the text.

comment Cross platform low level graphic API
Consider the games you've played. How many of them have options to use DirectX or OpenGL? That's how many create wrappers for the two libraries to be able to support either one. You have a limited imagination. :-P

comment Blender For Game Development, Pros And Cons
I would guess (and I'm most interested in) Blender for modeling. The game engine went stagnant for a significant period of time and is just being renovated, last I checked; I never had much faith in it.

comment Tools for creating assets?
The .ms3d format is an easy one to implement too, for those of you that want to write your own model importer/exporter. You can find the C header file definition of the format online.
