1) This is nothing new. The government already has such capabilities from the 9/11 terrorist attack rush legislations. They can suspect you of being a terrorist without evidence, and then essentially make you disappear, where you can undergo tortures (no Habeus Corpus). I don't see why they don't just define piracy as an act of terrorism, rather than rewriting the whole text.

I hope that Obama keeps that stance on internet privacy he told everyone he had during elections.
Just like all the other promises he's kept from election time.

What was wrong with getting a C dll to call java functions? I found JNI quite pleasant to use for this.
First off, I tried using JNI just to get Java to call a C dll, but I couldn't for the life of me get it to work. I asked around for help, and got pointed to JNA. I tried it out and it worked wonderfully. However, I wasn't able to figure out how to get C to call any Java functions with it, so I assumed that was pretty much out of the question.

That said, what purpose would it serve if we did have a way for Enigma to call LGM's functions?

I never said the logical structure would be stored in Enigma. In fact, I was implying it would actually be in LGM.

(It's a shame, too; she spent a fair deal of time threading that damn output window, and now it's useless...)
It will still have to be threaded, so that waiting for the dll doesn't cause LGM to totally freeze, but at least I won't have to thread output retrieval. That's good, because I never really liked the bugger anyways. Also, now I won't have to figure out how to parse your output, because it will be stored in a more logical structure.

He means libraries - not just dll. Actually I haven't even tested DLL yet, I've only tested .so files. At any rate, we'll simply recompile Enigma for windows, linux, mac, and whatever else. As it is now, it's not really cross-platform anyways, the difference between an exe/elf versus a dll/so...

Also, just a reminder we're talking about Enigma *itself* being a dll so that LGM can talk to it, not Enigma's support of user dll's.

Doesn't really matter if it should or shouldn't be used - someone uses it in some game, and they expect to convert said game directly to C++ with Enigma, which is a fairly reasonable expectation. Suppose the following:

Create event: i = 10 //maybe this represents lives
Some other event:
Code: [Select]
if (hits > 10) { //every 10 hits, they lose all their weapons
 var i;
 for (i = 0; i < 5; i += 1) { weapon[i] = 0; }
i -= 1; //we're reducing the number of lives this player has

Also, for amusement purposes, this is my 69th post...

While an automated encryption system would be infeasible for the reasons mentioned above, a user-interaction encryption is still relatively feasible. For example, any password-based encryption system, a user-provided seed, or an encryption based on a user-provided input (such as xor'ing 2 files).
Whatever the case, I think most of us could care less about encryption - we'd more readily implement our own if we needed it.

Blame Josh and the tendency to spell in the manner recently read. I can't find a case past where I made such an err, and I wrote it as draw_mandelbrot in the source
Not quite a spelling error, but more grammar: "err" is a verb. "error" is the noun form.

It can't be worse than GM, where one of the constants was cr_arrrow.

Premature optimization is the root of all evil.
I believe this is where Money comes from, too - premature optimization.

Dear god... Is that... C++?
How do you even read that?

It's loosely MIPS. I actually copy pasted it from a friend. If I were to make it more accurate, I would have used "addi" instead of "add" and "j" instead of "jump"
