Re: RnD to GitHub?

I am glad that you got a git repo up and running, Holger! Now there are a few things I'd recommend: Use branches!!! I'd recommend reading about the different common workflows that are used. As for bugtrackers, I've had experience with primarily Mantis, and IMO it does it's job quite good. Although t...

Re: An idea for the next generation files archive

Here is how the application looks right now: http://www2.zomis.net/imgs/rnddb.png The left view shows the local levels in my user Rocks'n'Diamonds directory, the right view shows the levels existing on the server. There are a few bugs to fix when uploading/downloading big levelsets, but it is partia...

Re: I am alive! But the RND Files Archive is not

they all have names like "00352" Sounds like the results of a very unhappy `fsck` on a *ix box? I am curious about the scope of the recovery project. Would you be able to say (1) how many such nameless files there are and (2) what their total byte size is? I've done some forensic and recovery work ...

Re: An idea for the next generation files archive

In an ideal world, I'd more or less also like to see those features, yes. However, as this is not an ideal world (yet), somethings need to be prioritized. I'd prioritize the levels, the tapes would be secondary for me. Of course, I personally can't do the R'n'D integration, but I could provide a sys...

Re: Biomaze rules in game

From a little source investigation, there is a `Life` method inside `game.c` that controls both Biomaze and Game of Life. When stripping out the Game of Life part and other fluff, I believe it boils down to this: void Life(int ax, int ay) { int x1, y1, x2, y2; int life_time = 40; int element = Feld[...

About the upcoming Android version - C or Java?

I was wondering about the upcoming Android version, will some code be translated from C to Java or will it be entirely done in C?

Re: An idea for the next generation files archive

I had some thoughts and ideas recently for something that may (or may not) be similar to the old files archive, at least regarding some of its functionality. It would be a combination of a "submit" button in R'n'D for your own level set(s) to upload them to a central server, and a way to access all...

RnD to GitHub?

Considering RnD is already open-source, I believe it would be good if RnD had a git repository on GitHub . For those of you who does not know git, it is currently the most used version-control-system among programmers. It is easy to create branches, merge, and collaborate on creating the software. O...

An idea for the next generation files archive

As you know, the Files Archive is dead. I have the files from the files archive, but I am missing the database that maps the files to an author/title/filename. I have however an idea for a system that can replace the Files Archive. I'd like to call this "Rocks'n'Diamonds Database" (RnDDB). I might h...

Re: I am alive! But the RND Files Archive is not

What kind of information lost? Only the name? Hey HerzAusGold! Glad to see you too around here. I have lost the entire database information with information about each file. I also feel that the old PHP files that managed this system are not good code (which I focus a lot on these days). It could a...

So... what have I been doing for the past three years? - Learned a whole lot more programming concepts and languages. - I've been an active user in the gigantic Stack Exchange network .

Well, it could work by making the elements that are supposed to enter the CE-Acid into other CEs and use the "Can dig <Acid>" and "Change when digging <Acid>" options. The animations would be difficult though, I don't know if that's possible.

Does the solution I mentioned above work? And if it does, I guess you want it done without using that extra space, huh? Under what conditions do you want it to work, is it ok if the CEs change to other CEs and then back or should they always remain the same, how should the located CE be marked, how ...

Or even better, use the "ELEM_IS_PLAYER" function, as the same behavior should also be for Murphy, our Supaplex friend.

Yes. I don't remember exactly how the bug I noticed was, but it sounds the same. Don't think it's been fixed yet :( I use an older version of RnD to play multiplayer network games.
