Re: How good are you at math?

The distance between sea level and the sea floor still has positive magnitude; it's just in the downward direction. Negative real numbers are an abstraction including whether the direction is forward or backward. Complex numbers are a generalization of this direction to a plane. That's what I thoug...

Re: Interest in "modern" SNES Development Hardware?

For me, the lack of compiler is the least of my worries. I'll use ASM (ca65). My main concerns are... -no specific GUI tool for working with SNES graphics -music (SPC programming) -I had to read multiple, very large technical documents just to print "Hello World" on the screen. But, at least we hav...

Re: Need a better way to check for background collision

And also, if you don't know what direction they were coming from, how to know what direction to push them out. Well, you would have to keep track of which direction your active objects are moving in some way, like having left/right and up/down flags, or use negative/positive velocities. I haven't g...

Re: Is it possible to program C without using functions?

The C preprocessor and scope.

I would also suggest learning about loops, but I assume you just forgot to mention those. :P
switch statements are a nice alternative to ifs in some cases.

Re: "ZeroAccess" virus removal on IE11, Windows 10?

Still, from the point of view from the OS installers, they should see only a completely blank drive and the act of repartitioning and formatting will do the rest. I'm not too OS savvy, but wouldn't this be a problem? "The threat creates an encrypted hidden volume in the computer's file system where...

Re: "ZeroAccess" virus removal on IE11, Windows 10?

Couldn't you just delete any of the files this virus uses, and revert the ones it messed with by just re downloading them? I mean, this seems like a pretty well known virus. ZeroAccess infects the Master Boot Record and the windows registry I believe, and it can also infect other system files. It a...

Why not stick to big-endian? Thank you! I managed to find a real answear on wikipedia instead.
