They saved it for the end.  Well, done, Reggie.

They started out with "there's going to be a lot of surprise today," and then it was WiiMotionPlus, Wii Fit, Wii Vitality Sensor... I knew all that, minus the last.

Then, they show us SMG 2, and the crowd finally claps.  It was meh.

Show more third party games.  More clapping.

"Could an edgier game come from us, Nintendo?"
"Since two heads are better than one... here's a little clip of what we've been making."

Eh.

Waves looked cool.

"What the hell is this"

and then

THE X

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG

Yeah, pretty much.  Although once sound is implemented you can make a decent game with it.

LGM is Java, which is platform-independent.  I think it makes a lot of sense right now, considering it was already made before ENIGMA came out and it doesn't require making a different IDE for each OS.

Although I do agree that an executable IDE should be created as a long-term solution, not right now.

C++ is compiled.

GML is interpreted.

You can't execute a string of code in a compiled language realtime.  It's just not possible.

Every number is currently a double. Which is the problem; doubles are slow.
Which is the advantage of using int when you can?

You use GConf already in ENIGMA? What happens under KDE?
GConf is not limited to GNOME, although it is a GNOME application.  KDE distros like Kubuntu or KDE Fedora will probably have some sort of registry.

Yeah, GNOME does have Gconf, but I really go against using it.  Just create a fake registry as a file in the same folder with the values in it.  I see that as being simpler, and you could modify the name of that file in the game settings or something.

For compatibility, how about having multiple versions that support different compatibility?  I mean, you could have one that has 16-bit and 32-bit functions, and another that has 32-bit and 64-bit functions.  You could change which one you compile in the settings.

As for functions, you could check if it doesn't return anything and make the function return void or simply be void.  For var... would it be possible to check what type the variable is from the beginning and use that type from start?  I mean, you can't change a string var to an int, so I really see no differences.  Of course, the only real thing you would do is make every number a double so that decimals can be used.

Update your Java.  You probably have an old version.

That is right.  While OpenGL > DirectX by far, they are not compatible.

I hate the iPhone/iTouch because their app system is too good, while I dislike their hardware.  WiiWare/DSiWare should be better, but Nintendo should learn from Apple and let people make and give out their own games for free, since nobody wants to pay $5-10 for tetris or some other bad game.
