    I think you're shooting a little high there..

    To be honest, people are going in two directions with gaming:

    A ) They are going backwards in time, or in other words, retro. Some people are interested in exercising 2D elements that were used in early game platforms.

    B ) They are exercising the current hardware components and are trying to make the games as flashy, realistic, and advanced as possible. This is the majority of most games now.

    Option A has a growing player base. Option B has the current majority. Also, option B is far more difficult because of the content and the graphical standards you have to meet. Option A can be accomplished by beginner developers.

    Want to have fun making a game that people will also enjoy? Come up with a nice little retro RPG or action game; something that isn't so demanding on the programming end, so you can actually accomplish it.

    Personally, I like to have some fun with a little game that brings me back to the previous gaming eras, or a game that just jumps back and uses old gaming elements in a new way.


    Is there a specific gameplay element from previous gaming eras that you enjoy a lot? I am creating a 3D engine, so could they be implemented in a way in 3d that could still bring back memories of older games?

    What would you think about a 3D RPG game, with physics with a kingdom building type goal? Explore, bring back treasures to build a kingdom?

    I think I've decided not to do a story in the game. But, what type of game is preferred here at minecraftforum? What type of rpg do you like? Specifics, please.

    Anyone have any GREAT game story ideas that they could share with me? I have all the knowledge to code and write music / record sound effects and 3d art. I am horribly bad at writing stories. Anyone willing to share?

    I have an old cisco wireless router that I really need to replace. Can anyone suggest anything in the $50-100 range? I really don't know much about what to choose. We have 3 pc computers and 4 smartphones in our family.

    I've heard about the 802.11g and 802.11n. What is the difference? If my phone uses a 802.11g adapter, is it useless for a n router? I just need some explaining for this stuff.

    Thanks!

    I really like Ronald Jenkees. He's not a band, but he is amazing.

    I've been studying music theory in pretty much all of my free time for about the last year, and I thought it would be nice to put all my hard work into a song now. This only took me a few hours, mostly choosing out synths and instruments, but have a listen if you want :)




    Thanks!

    I really need this to be as cheap as possible, I really don't need much power from it, just playing 1080p videos. I found an old pc, I think I can salvage the fans and case and possibly the power supply if it is enough, how do I know how much wattage a pc needs for the power supply?

    If he goes windows 7 he could always use windows media center.

    As far as I'm concerned, WMC is the best for watching protected cable, both digital and normal. No hassle setup as well.

    Does XBMC even support tuner cards? Last I checked it didn't.


    Yes, but its in the recent Frodo builds. I think it was just added in a few months ago.

    Could you possibly remake it with a smaller SSD since I really only need to have windows on it and thats all. And the motherboard and amd processor really don't need to be that powerful.

    Thanks, but is there a reason it needs a quad core processor? That's the most expensive thing on the list, and I don't think I need it that powerful. Also, should I get a dedicated graphics card to be able to output to the tv in 1080p and play movies at that resolution?

    I think I do have a copy of either windows xp or vista I bought a while ago for a pc I never built.

    Oh, and I want to get a small hard drive, since I already have a 2 terrabyte external one that I'm planning on using. And, I really don't need a 3.2 GHz quad core processor, a dual core one would be fine, I'm not planning on doing much other than playing movies and things you do with a htpc.

    I am looking to create a home theater pc with xbmc. I want to get a tv tuner to connect it to my cable service. I have an hd box from brighthouse, but I dont know how I would connect it to the computer to record tv shows.

    I want to spend as little money as possible, budget being less than $300 if possible. The computer just needs to be able to output hdmi and play videos at 1080p with no fps loss at all. I also need around 6 usb ports on the motherboard. I am going to control it with a wii remote. Can someone make me a list of parts I need to build the computer?
