Come back, come back
« on: December 01, 2005, 01:11:48 AM »
Feels as though all the users have wandered off to work on their own projects.  Most of these projects lie several weeks dead in the water.  Making anything is hard.  The volume of code would blow your mind.  I wish everyone's projects the best of luck, but remember there is a project here that has come far and has far to go.

The core engine for Darwinbots in the C++ port is almost done.  I'll have a really simply runnable C++ version in about a week or so.  There is so much work that still needs doing, yet I am bogged down working on things like charts and database entries.  I am only one man.  Thankfully wolfhound has been working on the GUI so I don't have to worry about that.

Even someone else helping me with the paper end of it, new features, etc. would be nice.

I guess I'm just asking for comfirmation that I am not alone in my continued struggle for Darwinbots.  It's been too quiet here the last week or so.

It just gets that way every now and then.

This is the first time that so many people have gone off to do their own thing though.

I am still working on the VB end of things, if a little slowly. If I can get every last bug out of V2.37 it will be something that we can work from at least.

Yeah, it's kind of funny how people come and go in waves...  I am still here, but honestly I have not been doing much with DB recently.  Just got other things on my mind at the moment.

I'm hoping when the port is finished and I can begin to work on the biggies, mebo et al, we can attract some new people.

refering to your first post nums, I could try to help you with some ,but if it needs advanced math I cant do it.  and I dont have any way to get a compiler(internets to slow) besidse the fact that I don't even know how to program in any language other than dark basic (and I am not very good at that).

There are some free compilers that are small enough to download even on a dial up.

compilers tend to be real small, it's the GUI environment that uses them that's large.

Not everyone is cut out from programming, but you should definately check to see if you are or not.  There are all sorts of C+ tutorials online.  As long as you accept that it may take a while and won't be easy you can spend a month or two and learn it in your spare time.

No, that's a huge whopper.  There are some GNU compilers that are under a megabyte.  Of course, you need to run those from the command line, which isn't all that user friendly.

Do some googling around, see what you can find.

Apparently not. Maybe this is just his ghost though.

I haven't left the forum, I 'm just not the kind of person that posts much here.
