Mar 27th 2009 1:20PM So help me out here:
OpenGL = Open Graphic Library
OpenCL = Open Computing Language (can't get much more general than that)
Does OpenCL have the resources to replace OpenGL or will you be using both? If you are using DirectX does that preclude you from using OpenCL too?
What's the likelyhood that a game designed from the ground up using OpenCL will not require windows?
Mar 27th 2009 10:08AM So
Assumption #1: OpenCL is teh new h0tness
Assumption #2: OpenCL will be good for games
Assertion #1: OpenCL is cross platform friendly
Assertion #2: Games programmed in OpenCL would be stupid easy to port from one platform to another
Question: So are we going to see more Mac/Linux games going forward?
Jan 31st 2009 10:09PM It's pretty interesting. Apple has been worried about flash on the iPhone since the start because they want to control the software on the iPhone as much as possible. With flash there's quite a bit of bypassing the App store that people can do. It'll be interesting to see what controls are in place when it finally comes out.

Oct 8th 2008 6:32PM I saw the headline and was certain that massively had posted an article on how to play Moria (you know, the rogue-like).
The truth was disappointing.
Sep 6th 2008 11:09AM I now wish I was in the Beta, specifically so I could provide feedback on the Beta boards.
"You have split druid feral into 2 trees (dps and tanking) but the gear for both is identical. Ask anyone, you're failing."
Aug 19th 2008 8:27AM I dropped skinning for JC on my main (bear tank), 371 and counting. When Wrath hits I'll be dropping LW for Inscription. My primary alt has mining and herbalism.
I feel this way I'll be able to keep up with rep patterns and raid drops.
Jul 29th 2008 10:06AM Didn't they fix the "in-and-out of combat" problem with hunters? Why would it be any different for any other class? When hunters could no longer feign death to get out of combat to drink mid-raid they said it was the end of the world. Oddly enough, that end never came. I see no reason they couldn't fix it for any other class.
Why is being able to chain chug pots out-of-combat such a problem? I know of several warriors who would sing Blizzards praises if this was the case as they have to sit down and eat after just about every fight (while soloing). My shaman and druid have never had that problem. Can you give additional reasons why OOC potion use needs to be restricted?
I agree that if certain classes had imbalanced potion use then it could be a problem, but there's no reason why that should be the case.
Jul 29th 2008 8:47AM If they're going to do this perhaps they should split up potions they way the split up elixers. Battle, Guardian, and Restoration (or something like that).
Also, remove the potion cooldown if you're doing this.
Jul 20th 2008 7:33PM My shadowrun team needs some monofilament wire. How soon can we have this ready?
