Temple of the Roguelike / Can't change my avatar
« on: March 21, 2021, 06:36:36 PM »
When I do so, I get an error saying that the avatar directory is non-writable... 😟

Was just talking with someone on #rgrd who was looking for 7DRLs written in C++ because he's trying to learn C++ by creating a simple roguelike, and I found IRLDB linked on Roguebasin... but while it's got lots of search options, none of them is "programming language" :(

I remember reading something about them a long time ago, but all I can find now is Dijkstra's pathfinding algorithm. I've already implemented it in my game (or at least A*; it's been a while and I'm not sure if I did it right), but I was hoping to speed things up a bit by caching the maps and only updating what needs to be updated when things move around. Wasn't there an article about this somewhere? Or am I completely imagining Dijkstra maps?

And actually, this isn't a roguelike I'm working on (it's a 4X!); I want pathfinding so the ships can move around on this huge map (well, actually numerous small maps connected by "warp points"), but the algorithms seem rather relevant even in this case ;)

Off-topic (Locked) / still down?

Will it come back in time for this year's challenge? Or is it dead?

7DRLs / Question about 7DRL rules - previously written code?
« on: February 12, 2016, 08:02:49 PM »
Hey :) Missed out on the challenge last year, and I'd like to get back into it with what might be my most ambitious 7DRL yet... but since it's been a while, I want to clarify one rule.

It is permissible to use previously written code for a 7DRL, right? Provided of course that you didn't create that code specifically for use with this 7DRL! I have some utility classes I wrote for another project (one to roll dice, and another to load simple text configuration files, and probably others I haven't thought of yet), and I'd rather not have to write those again from scratch.

In case you were wondering what my idea is, it's something I've been bouncing around with this one guy on IRC for a while... basically, it's a roguelike version of Recettear! :D

Thanks! :)

edit: oops, should I have posted this in the Challenges forum? If so, would a mod please move it there? Thanks!

I think this is the second year in a row that I received a 2.17 score... not bad at all, but I keep feeling like I could do more in 7 days if I just put more time into it! :(

7DRLs / A note on the review scores
« on: March 21, 2014, 03:14:57 AM »
Some of us reviewers have noticed the "fun" scores for our reviews have been altered to be equal to the "aesthetics" scores. Slash has confirmed that this is a bug in the display code for the review page, so don't be surprised if your review score goes up or down a bit in the next few days!

7DRLs / Geez Slash...

Can't you make up your mind what your 7DRL is called? :D

(Just teasing!)

Challenges / 7DRL review squad
« on: March 14, 2014, 08:18:07 PM »
I'm kind of tempted to throw my hat in the ring to review 7DRLs this year, assuming we're doing the same thing we did last year. Is there a place I can sign up?

Having to confirm my subscription to every post I comment on and want to be notified of replies to via email is really annoying. I'm already logged in! I hear this is to prevent folks from spamming people's inboxes by entering other users' email addresses in the contact form (which I think is kind of ridiculous, since you can already do so just by sending them the confirmation emails), but since I'm already logged in, why do I have to do this every time? Also, I'm not entirely sure if these notifications actually WORK... either they're broken, or nobody replies to my comments! :P

edit: OK, just confirmed that the notifications do in fact work - someone just replied to one of my comments! :D

... err, no, wait, that was Disqus :P

Temple of the Roguelike / 7drl registration page suggestion - SEARCH!
« on: March 13, 2014, 09:07:44 PM »
Would be really handy what with the huge number of entries we've been getting the last few years! :D

I forgot to check the "notify me of replies to this comment" box - is there any way to edit my post to subscribe?

7DRLs / Beware of Strange Warp Points - a Space Empires themed 7DRL
« on: March 09, 2014, 11:31:54 PM »
Since everyone else is posting here about their 7DRL, I figured I might as well spam the forum too... :P

I don't feel like reposting everything I already posted on my blog, so I'll just link it here - check back every day for more updates!

Temple of the Roguelike / 7DRL registration page looks a bit confusing
« on: March 07, 2014, 09:59:15 PM »
The rows in the list of entries are center-aligned, not top-aligned, so sometimes I'll be reading the description of a roguelike, and then start on the next, without realizing that I'm on a completely different game than the one I'd started reading! Happens a lot when the second one has a really long description :)

Also... sorting by game name seems completely broken, unless I'm missing something obvious... At least for the 2013 entries!

7DRLs / Can't log in to blog

I tried resetting my password, but even after I did so, I couldn't log in with the password I'd just set! :(
