comment Circular Bullet Spread not Even
+1 True. He should compute period = 2 * pi of sin/cos functions and then interval = period / BULLETS_PER_WAVE.

comment Deterministic replay in a modern game
Doom, Wolf3D, Quake has it. They also come with source code. But they are not 1-2 years old. :) There are action replays in Need For Speed (in few I played You could replay any part of record like a VCR) and in smaller way in beat-them-ups ...

comment Optimizing a mesh for voxel cube landscapes
Why polygonal mesh? Voxel can be rendered quite efficiently just like they are. For one voxel cube You need 3 floats (x,y,z), for 1 box You need around 8*3 floats (8 vertices), and that in case You have implicit edges and polygons. Maybe Unity is not the tool for this voxel problem.

comment How can I determine the first visible tile in an isometric perspective?
Use some of Polygon Intersection (or Polygon Clipping) algorithms (or use library) to create intersection. Then map these points to Your map.

comment How can I determine the first visible tile in an isometric perspective?
Have You considered making the map into polygons and rendering it with OpenGL? This might avoid whole problem. :) 1.) Note that, GL can be accelerated by hardware, is easy to use, supports things like lighting, fog, color blending, transparency ... new version even shaders. 2.) You can use GL for now, work on other parts of Your work, after You are more experienced You can go back and make the rendering work the way You want it.

comment How can I determine the first visible tile in an isometric perspective?
a) Upload image to image hosting site and insert its url there. b) Multiple image urls can be on one pastebin url. c) Insert textual link "Text is on on pastebin with suffix Lxzygtv9". You can that image later; or somebody else who can add images right now can (I seem to have the rights to edit and insert image).

comment Multiplayer card game using PHP/Ajax and mysql
Make tables in database (2) for active players, store their properties; properties which capture necessary gamestate. In PHP get/set data from/to database + needed processing based on requests (2). I would use ajax to do these requests (1), based on player's actions, timers ... js -> php "joe says hi" ... php-> database "add this message" ... php->js "message added"
