    Well generally you signify a next attack with a slow-mo animation or some sort of particle emission. I suppose I would have to be creative! (I'm imagining a Roachalos, or maybe a Roachian, flying around doing spinning attacks and throwing fireballs lmao)

    If I had to the time to do anythings besides college I would've liked to make a Monster Hunter style boss. Hum. Curse college for stealing all of my time.

    posted a message on So, Who played/plays WoW?

    Lvl 80 mage and death knight. Valaraukador is the Mage Cyrukh is the DK Both Horde and on the server Korgath I was part my guild's main raiding group and was one of the better geared raiders in the guild, until some circumstances forced me from raiding. I haven't played in a while but I think I might return in cataclysm. (I had framerate issues with my old computer so this will be a nice change)

    Honestly, I thought Wrath of the Lich King was kinda boring. But I do enjoy the leveling speeds. The slowness of leveling in Vanilla and TBC and unbearable for me and caused me to quit the game like 3 times before I reached 70 (which took me around a year or more). It was soo boring :/ I think I enjoyed raiding in BC more than in WotLK, but it might've been because I was in a guild that struggled through content and so each victory meant more. IDk, I'm just rambling : /

    posted a message on Whats your sad story?

    Long story short I used to be depressed and suicidal in the beginning (like first half) of high school and I nearly killed myself. I was a C student, didn't really do anything or try.

    Now I'm a freshman in college, I'm having the time of my life, never been happier (ditto on the girl problems though), and I'm not sure whether this is real life or I'm dreaming :D Also, I pulled my grades up to solid A's (3.98 GPA) for my senior year of high school. Also, I'm learning to do the things I love, like math and programming :D

    My sad story has a happy ending ^_^

    Quote from Mozared: Go

    @TheSecretArts: Go

    On one hand, Fountains of Wayne is in that list, which is awesome. On the other hand, there's One Republic, Train and Taio Cruz (which you probably only mentioned because you liked "Break your heart", amirite?). I can still respect people who listen to Gaga, but if I had to name three artists that examplified the decline of modern day pop music...

    I'll admit it, their songs are mainstream (in a bad way), but I don't listen to those bands when I want something deep or good. They just sound decent on a superficial level to me. Actually I kinda got sick of hearing Break your heart the 1039042523805 times it played on/at Pandora, Radio, dances, et cetera.

    I'll be a man and admit it. I LISTEN TO LADY GAGA AND I LIKE IT.

    hahahah... besides that, Five for fighting, OneRepublic, Fountains of Wayne, modwheelmood, nine inch nails, Goo goo dolls, Train, ATB, Basshunter, Linkin Park, Taio Cruz, Cobra Starship among MANY others.

    Edit: I know, I'm pretty mainstream.

    posted a message on Pseudo-Dynamic Arrays

    I've started working on the API for handling dynamic arrays. Full support for all data table variables will be about 200 functions (45 different variables and 4 different boilerplate functions need to handle specific types so a minimum of 180 functions just to handle all the variables with around 10-20 core functions) Of course you can delete functions that you won't use and only take a few functions that you need to dramatically reduce size.

    @SouLCarveRR: Go

    I have a ATI Radeon Mobility HD 5650. I thought I said that but I might not've. Sorry, I get defensive sometimes. :(

    Edit: I said that I had a HD Mobility 5650, but not ATI or anything so my bad. I apologize.

    posted a message on Disabling Cores on an i7 to improve performance

    I retested it. I conclude that the difference in performance between 2 cores disabled and 0 cores disabled isn't a great as I initially thought, though it was still noticeable. 5-10 fps on the map Outbreak under a range of heavy to light load. The difference was lowest between the 2 at a light load (where the frame difference was negligible) and greatest at a high load (lots of units, not even necessarily on screen but doing actions like raping my base).

    Maybe you can't "turn off" cores, but you can specify how many cores that windows uses. When I put in 4 cores under msconfig (in the boot options), after I reboot, task managed shows 4 logical cores instead of 8 and CPU-Z shows 2 cores/4threads instead of 4/8. Also, when I disabled 2 cores through msconfig, cpu-z showed higher base clock speeds on my other two cores, which is to be expected due to turbo boost and was the whole point I was getting at... the possibility of disabling cores to effectively utilize the power of turbo-boost on single/double threaded applications. (assuming turbo boost is not fully effective when the core is enabled due to background threads / processes) This has nothing to do with hyperthreading as I can't turn the damn thing off thanks to the limited BIOS options that HP decided to install on their laptops.

    And Soulcarverr, then how is it wrong that my notebook can't run high at 50 fps. Is there something wrong there? Do I need to spend 2000 dollars and a stupid school laptop for it to be considered decent by you? My laptop isn't doing anything wrong as far as I can tell. The only thing that is messed up on my computer is Catalyst Control Center, which I uninstalled because it was just causing problems.

    @SouLCarveRR: Go

    1: It's on high settings, I said that.. Not low or medium, My laptop has no issues running it, My laptop has a HD Mobility 5650, so it can run it pretty well.

    2. Yes I do use it only plugged in for games, when on battery I have it on uber power-save mode for when I use it in class for notes.

    So, next time, don't criticize my computer without reading everything that I said, and next time bring something useful to the conversation. Sorry if I sound rude, but you insult the quality of my tech even though I specifically stated "HIGH" settings and you don't even bother to address the topic at hand.

    posted a message on Disabling Cores on an i7 to improve performance

    So, I've been trying to turn off hyperthreading on my HP DV7 notebook, which is impossible because the BIOS setting isn't there (thanks HP!). I tried turning the number of processor cores used in MSConfig to 4 but instead it disabled 2 of my cores and left hyperthreading on. But when I played Starcraft 2 which only 2 cores on, I got a 100% increase in framerate... yes, a 100% increase. I was playing the mission Outbreak and got 10-20 FPS on High Settings with all cores on, but when I played it with only 2 cores on, I got 30-50 fps. I suppose this has something to do with the i7's turbo boost feature (which is now really cool in my opinion).

    I think this is a really cool discovery and makes quad core processors equipped with turbo-boost much better than I previously though for applications which don't support utilizing all threads.

    Very cool, but i was hoping to see the island "fall apart" or something epic like that.

    posted a message on Pseudo-Dynamic Arrays

    Okay, I'm going to try my hands at the data table. I'm drafting a system to handle and organize the data into manageable parts (by the system) and easily controllable (by the user).

    Edit:

    Is there any way I make it so I can make a function return a struct or something so that the user has a handle which links to array data?

    I was going to use structs that would hold the name, type, and size of an array so the user can easily call and store structs.

    @s3rius: Go

    data tables seem to work in a very similar way to banks at first glance. Is there any big differences between them?
