So I'd like to design indie video games independently as a one woman team. I'm imagining mobile games would probably be best suited for this. I know how stereotypical this sounds, but what would be some good steps towards this career?

I have no programming, 3D design, or technical experience. I'm starting from square one, but I'm at square one with everything else in my life and at this point I'm thinking, "Fuck it, I'll go with what I love."

Well, don't go into computer science. It has very little to do with programming and nothing to do with game design.

Pursue it as a hobby. Figure it out. Learn a few languages if you have to. Maybe you could take the same route as that sharkeshia girl with that game suicide quest. She made money off that right?
>>
If you're going with mobile, I'd personally recommend starting with iOS(fuck apple) or android due to market share. Windows phone apps can be made in c++, which makes learning it useful.

Android is basically Java, also useful.

Ios is OOC, kind of only used for ios.

You don't really need most of those skills to start. Learn as you go. Otherwise, you could pick up unity and start making games in that.

W, make a good game. Not done shit game like social justice warriors(not joking). Try to avoid pushing your biases and opinions in it. This is the fastest way to get your game noticed, but not bought. It will also fade faster.

I'm a one dev team(sex isn't important, kind of a red flag to say you're a woman dev team) making a couple games for Windows phone.

probably wanted to see if we can tell the difference. Yes, we can. It's easy to actually. The quartz fakes are the only ones that might pass for real in a photograph and those obviously tick every second on the subdial and when you hit the chrono instead of 4-6 times (idk which)

Quartz one's £90 roughly though so that's cool. I'd get one and sterilise it if I had the balls to do it.

I'd buy a sterilised quartz Speedy replica in a heartbeat. I don't know why people don't make them.

Ok, you people make fun of us girls all the time, and I think it is justified most of the time. But when you are a guy and you only use proprietary operating systems, it is ridiculous.

How can you feel so superior if all you use are OSs intended for teens on their thirteens?

Do you use any music streaming service /g/?

I just left Spotify for good after having been a premium user for at least 2 years now. The app is absolutely shit on Android. It's laggy as fuck, it freezes, it crashes, it takes forever to enter my library or search for artists.

I ended up switching too Google Music. The interface is not at nice, but at least it is fluid as fuck. It responds to every touch and starts up really fast.

Having a lot of trouble trying to simulate a single-tape Turing Machine using a second single-tape Machine whose states can only be written to once.

I'm writing a ray tracer for a school project and I've noticed a really strange thing. If I run the program on my laptop, which has a i5 2450M running at 2.50ghz, 8GB ram, 64bit win7, It finishes in about 55 seconds. However if I run it on my desktop i5 2500k running at 3.2ghz, 8GB ram, 64bit win7 it takes about 90 seconds. Does anyone have any idea what would be causing this? I'd have assumed the desktop would be faster.

Its all done in memory, the laptop has a hard drive the desktop a sdd so its not that.

>>47616289
The desktop doesn't have hyperthreading. The laptop does, though I don't see how it would make a difference since the program is single threaded.
