comment Styles of games that work at low-resolution
In 8x8? Tetris? Pacman? Even Asteroids could not fit there. I assume you thought he was talking about 64x64 instead.

comment Styles of games that work at low-resolution
@ziggystar: I disagree. While tetris is a great game, it has been ported so much "everywhere" that it would be kind of lame porting it somewhere else. Moreover, since he has only 8x8 pixels available, I can't imagine any sane and fun way to play Tetris under those constraints.

@Hobo: that is not p2p, that is client/server, no matter how you call it.

comment Licensing Theme Music from other games
I'd like to add, I disagree that he wouldn't have to worry about. A few years ago Nintendo stormed ROM sites making them close down, even if the games they distributed were so old to be commercially worthless.

comment How do I protect my rights to my game on the web?
@Joe: well, no. If a law says something is illegal, it IS illegal. That's the definition. Then, if offices and judges ignore the law, well, you may say that it is de facto legal, but it still de jure illegal. (IANAL)

comment Why is there a lack of games for Linux?
This is it. The problem is not simply the small Linux install base: the problem is that most people who use Linux and are interested in gaming, just dual boot or give up and play with consoles.

comment What's the best server architecture for real-time games?
"FPS like. max 1s lag" 1s is way too much for an FPS to be playable. It's not an "upper bound", it's so above the upper bound that is floating in the (red) sky.

I guess you mean crawl? Unless these zombies are somehow bird-propelled, of course.

@Hobo: on SO if it's homework (and doesn't get closed) it is tagged homework. This clearly should not be closed, but I think it deserves the tag anyway.

comment How can one compile Darwinia under Linux?
Totally agree with @Zorba: it would be completely foolish to do hard work on it and then not even knowing if you could sell it.
