93.3333 degrees that's why they call me Mr. Celsius

Just like "I was just following orders" was not an excuse, "My religion claims I had to do it" is neither. If you behave as an offensive bigot, you are an offensive bigot. Petty excuses will not be tolerated. Ramen.

comment Is there a way to obtain a user-set “name” in multiple platforms?
@PlasticSturgeon I might have badly phrased it, then. As long as that function produces a user-set name, such as the device name, an email address, an user name, whatever, then it's ok.

@Ali.S that's what I'm trying to ask: for every platform, which is such a function?

@jhocking it does not need to be unique. I'm going to use it as a "provisional username" for a "provisional account" until the user bother to actually register a real account (where he will provide the name). So, for solving my problem, I can easily create a random name for each user. But still, if there was a real solution, it would be better than using a random name.

comment How long is SystemInfo.deviceUniqueIdentifier?
@Byte56 that same link, however claims that sometimes it was just an hash instead… did they make the hash as long as the GUIDs?

comment How long is SystemInfo.deviceUniqueIdentifier?
@JoshPetrie I'm going to put it in a db, so I need to know how big the field is going to be. Since it will be client-provided, and clients can easily cheat, I can't just accept any length, or it would be trivial to saturate my db with fake data… so I would have to put a cap anyway.

comment How to determine if character has fallen into the gap in an infinite runner/jumper?
OT: I though this question was posted on rpg.SE and I thought "What kind of rule exploit has been found now? Infinite running how?"

comment How do I save and restore an int value with PlayerPrefs?
You shouldn't store the password anyway, you should store a login token (like http session id) instead.

comment How do I save and restore an int value with PlayerPrefs?
@AssortedTrailmix I disagree: 1. as long as the game is offline, who cares if someone cheats? 2. if the game is online, nothing should be authoritative client-side anyway.

comment How do I save and restore an int value with PlayerPrefs?
Wrong: Writes all modified preferences to disk. By default Unity writes preferences to disk on Application Quit. In case when the game crashes or otherwise prematuraly exits, you might want to write the PlayerPrefs at sensible 'checkpoints' in your game. This function will write to disk potentially causing a small hiccup, therefore it is not recommended to call during actual gameplay.

comment How to install Unreal Engine 4?
Me too. I was able to find it only because I noticed this question earlier, so I knew it was hard to find. I didn't remember the answer, but I remembered "yes it's not trivial to find it", and that was motivation enough to keep searching.

comment Difference between Update method and FixedUpdate in Unity?
@Ben no: if you want your simulation to be precise, you have to take many small steps, not huge ones randomly bigger or smaller every time. And no, the whole point of FixedUpdate is that it gets called that many times, no questions asked.

comment Difference between Update method and FixedUpdate in Unity?
@Ben yes, precision. In a system with slow rendering, Update gets called less and less often, and your simulation will suffer a lot from that. You might not notice while the simulation is simple, but it will easily break horribly when it isn't.

@Ben they have two different goals and you should use the correct function for what you are doing.

@JoshPetrie ok, and might you know if I can at least know if the problem is this one, or something else?

@JoshPetrie yes, I'm on Yosemite. If this is a problem, is there any workaround?

Again, and for the last time: the sole act of being online guarantees exactly nothing. It is just one of many required features.

comment How to make hard to hack leaderboards
This is absolutely wrong. Just being online doesn't imply anything. Either the game logic is server-side, or you could be offline as well.

comment How to make hard to hack leaderboards
@TimHolt not exactly. It's an impossible problem, and the only real solution is to do it server-side. Other pseudo-solutions are less than a placebo.
