comment How standardized are joystick / gamepad configurations?
I would add that a technical reason to use XInput for 360 controllers is that DirectInput does not properly support the 360 pad's triggers (source)

comment Why are there so few games compiled for 64-bit processors?
Looks like 64-bit is already starting to arrive with the new consoles: Titanfall's minimum specs include a 64-bit OS.

comment What would be best practice of client comunication in a multiplayer game
@jhocking Is this the sentence you are referring to: "You never want to sync the state of a client to the server as that opens up all sorts of cheating opportunities." Based on the comments I think we're all thinking the same things, but my original statement is not clearly worded. I've editing my answer to clarify this point.

comment Converting data file of Sprite Atlas from JSON to Cocos 2D
@user34183 Yeah, it's called Texture Packer, you set it up and export to whatever format you want ;) If you can't do that it looks like the Cocos2D format is a plist (which is just an xml document) On OSX it looks like there is a util for converting JSON to plist though there probably isn't a straight one-to-one conversion from your JSON file to Cocos2D. Converting from JSON to plist should be an easy script to write.

comment Converting data file of Sprite Atlas from JSON to Cocos 2D
@Ali.S Right, AFAIK TP does not convert JSON to Cocos2D, it exports tps to JSON or Cocos2D or any other supported format.

comment How to synchronize actions like jump in multiplayer?
I used this approach when writing my first networked multiplayer game. In fact I used @ggambett's as reference. It worked well for me.
