    Level 11 CPU: The AI that beats you at Melee

    Yup, this is definitely an active project. Progress will be seen on the project's github page (in the first post). For any feature requests or bug reports, make an Issue on the github page as that will be the best way for me to track them. I only rarely check the smashboards, and this is not an...

    Level 11 CPU: The AI that beats you at Melee

    Ahh, so you're trying to run the game like normal on a Wii, use Gecko to give you game state info, and then use a Raspberry Pi to send controller input? That's pretty neat. Might even be something easier to support than running code natively inside the GameCube. (Which is a long term goal for...

    Level 11 CPU: The AI that beats you at Melee

    If there are any code related questions or issues, using the github Issue tracker will be best. Or else I'm likely to miss your comment. (I don't come on smashboards often these days) That said, the CPU runs only on Linux. So that's your problem. I'll add that to the FAQ, though.

    Level 11 CPU: The AI that beats you at Melee

    Like a mad scientist, I have been cooking up something special in my lab that's almost ready to take over the world: The Level 11 CPU! (We skipped 10 and cranked it straight to 11) For anyone that wants to play it, I'll be at Genesis III this weekend showing it off. I'm not completely sure...

    JUST started computer programming

    Think of your math class for a moment, not programming at all. An Integer is the set: (-∞, ... -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, ... ∞) No "decima points". So in C++ when you have a variable "My_Bill" declared as an int (Integer) it cannot store any decimal points. If you want to store decimal points...

    JUST started computer programming

    Visual Studio is not and will never be free software. "Free Software"in the computer world (as I hope you know) refers not to price, but to freedom. As in software that respects and promotes freedom. See http://fsf.org Code::Blocks is great. Best to get comfortable with something and try to...

    JUST started computer programming

    Don't. Don't succumb to Microsoft's lure. You will be swept up into a wave of proprietary tools and vendor lock in that you won't be able to escape. Use and write Free and Open Source software. There are more Free Software tools than you will know what to do with. Start by doing some basic...

    c++ help?

    Do not post your homework assignments verbatim and expect a response. If you have a specific issue you don't understand, everyone would be happy to help.

    Internet Issue

    You can try going to speedtest.net from more than one computer in your house. Also, an net connection has many attributes, not just "fast vs slow". It could very well be that you have low throughput, but good latency. If so, even a low throughput connection is enough to load websites or play a...

    The Debate Hall Social Thread

    Well, sure, once you grant the existence of an all-powerful deity who cares deeply for the everyday lives of humans, then "god did it" becomes a perfectly likely and logical explanation for all sorts of things. War started? New family member born? Found your car keys? God did it. If we lived in...

    The Debate Hall Social Thread

    It happens for the same reason people believe in all kinds of ridiculous nonsense like alien abductions, the loch nes monster, bigfoot, and homeopathy. There's not one answer, there's many: a) Some percentage is fraud and liars. People who go to a haunted house and claim to see a ghost, just...

    "Intellectual Property" Law

    The Pirate Bay team have been relatively quite and low lately. But they have a new press release due to SOPA: https://static.thepiratebay.org/legal/sopa.txt

    The Debate Hall Social Thread

    It sure sounds unbecoming of an almighty being to communicate via "warm fuzzy feelings". I can surely think of a more effective method of communicating as important as the meaning of life. Though now you bring up something which is empirically falsifiable: prayer effects. Can someone really...

    The Debate Hall Social Thread

    Especially when you consider the fact that everyone of every mutualy exclusive religion has claimed the same thing.

    Computer Engineer VS Computer Science major

    Same for my University, Sight. Computer Science and Computer Engineering were very similar, save that Computer Engineering was more focused on hardware. Computer Science focused on software.
