Is it really that hard for you to believe that there are people that aren't just coders. Who actually learn and know how to run a business and do what is necessary to keep it alive? I never claimed to be a coding god, that is actually what you are claiming to be. I don't have to show you anything actually and the reason that the engine isn't open source is that I haven't yet made it so. It's not that I have something against open sourcing it it's just that I never bothered with putting it on github or whatever. It takes time to add documentation and cleanup some parts. Time that right now I know will be better spent on other parts of my game. Also I'm not in any hurry because my mission isn't to rub it in people's face to claim my right to the throne of great gods of programming.Oh, how surprising that you identify yourself as an 'entrepreneur' - certainly didn't see that coming from a mile away.....
Anybody calling themselves an 'entrepreneur' 99.99% of the time in software engineering translates into a scumbag piece of shit that can't even hack it. Failure or unwillingness to produce any code of course means you can build yourself up to be this 'great coding god' all you want without having to produce jack shit all evidence for it - which all feeds into the douchyness of your kind.
Those women created something that reached a large part of population and made them have a good time. That is the reason games exist. They did a great job. And also made more money than you will ever have. But riiight, I know what you'll say: you won't compromise your principles to make that kind of immoral money. It's not that you couldn't it's just that you don't want because you are superior. Get off your high horse! Not everything needs to be revolutionary in the coding department in order to sell a lot. But you will never understand that there are other things in a product success other than code. Those games aren't succesful because they had a retard like you code all day long. They are succesful because they are fun. I know it must hurt to have one of those retards make more money than you while not having the chops to code so I'm just gonna rub it in because I know you die a little on the inside everytime one of these guys sells another unit.Rovio got rich off 'using' an opensource framework (Box2D) and just having a bunch of women design cute fluffy birds all day. So the problem with your kind is - you act like you're 'entitled' to money, like you're 'entitled' to be 'entrepreneurial' and shit but you expect the 'tools' you use to 'grow rich' to still remain free.
And no I don't expect tools to be free.
And those people are contributing to the happiness of society. See, they entertain people. They don't contribute back code they contribute something else. But you can't understand that because for you it's all code code code code code.
Or, you know, I'd use windows. That was never open source. That has market dominance. How does that feel?Then why the fuck don't you get off this site then? Your scumbag kind doesn't even seem to belong here. Imagine if the people behind the Linux kernel and/or Mesa shared your attitude - you wouldn't have anything to run your (closed source) piece of shit game engine on in the first place
I didn't say that isn't how open source works (altough there is no need to provide it for free actually), just that you seem to be against the idea of money and capitalism. It's funny you insult Google and Apple while you write code for them. See my friend that is power. They make you do what they want while you complain. Could it be that is because they have more money and so can influence the market more than you can? And as evil as they are you still provide RetroArch for them..... Bend over bitch!Hey cockroach, THIS IS HOW HOMEBREW/OPEN SOURCE WORKS - this is HOW WE ROLL since the '80s and '70s - you provide your SHIT FOR FREE and you provide your SOURCE. This is how this motherfucking community used to work before piece of shit maggots like you found out there was a way to 'profit' from shitty homegrown code on dipshit App Stores.
Yes. We are afraid of what Google might do to us if we criticise them. You got that right. Did you know that you suffer from paranoid delusion?'Android' games are nothing more (99.9% of the time) than 'run-me-down' iOS ports. Nobody on Earth who is serious about programming is 'loving' this piece of garbage and even fewer use it as their 'primary' platform - that always remains iOS (I guess that must be because despite all things - Android is still 'really great', right?).
The reason they don't speak out against it in public (about the obvious thousand issues that are wrong with this Android garbage) is because they want to maintain close and 'friendly' ties to Google and because most programmers are spineless, gutless nerds that waive all their rights and their right to an own opinion as long as it meansa a company employs them and they are a few months removed from the unemployment lines.
Because we all know how Jobs really never cared about quality and only released half-assed products. Right on the money again.... How do you live with yourself in these kinds of delusions? Are there any small green people chasing you by any chance? And no matter how fast you run they are always behind you?Then you have the scumbag maggot kind (like you) that self-identifies as an 'entrepreneur' and defend Android simply because their 'lax policies' on their store makes you think this is a 'great ticket' to 'growing rich' - most of your larvae kind don't give a crap about the actual quality of your programs or the enjoyment factor - as long as you become the 'next Steve Jobs/Bill Gates' in terms of raking in ill-gotten gains.
Don't care about enjoyment factor? Because Mojang and company got so rich and adored by the public exactly because they don't give a crap about them right?
Apps should be monetized fetish? Do you even know that a fetish is? So are you gonna tell me that everything that costs money in a store is because they are being sold by fetishists? And that all people that buy them are in some sort of Dominance/Submission game?You and your kind are cancer and it's good to see you identified how I see your disgusting bottom-feeding kind - I know exactly what your cockroach kind is about. You can take your 'apps should be monetized' fetish and you can SHOVE IT right up your fat hillbilly ass.
Funny how you hate these platforms that you actually can't stop coding for. Who's your master? Now go back to being a good boy that thinks he is a rebel, that he is against the 'system' all the while working within this system.
Really now. Go to the doctor. Before you do anything stupid like those two idiots in Boston.
And me..well I'm a cancer like you said. So I'll do what I do best. Metastasize....and win the market. While killing you of course.
Squarepusher you're pretty wacked out man. You know if you stopped lining up the powder your nose bleeds would get better right? Have you started breathing through your eyeball sockets yet?
BO$$ you and I don't often agree, but I'm on your side. Give em hell man.
So creating a bird game using an open framework is parasitic. Creating a Super Mario Bros. "clone with a gimmick" shows a lack of creativity. Pushing out a game with Quake 2-level graphics is an embarrassment. Making money off of one's labors is about as bad as being a cockroach.
HOWEVER... creating an emulator program that does nothing more than run somebody else's ancient yet creative hard work -- in an unlicensed manner -- is badass and where the true awesomeness of individuality lies.
And you also aren't 'killing' jack shit. Notice that me being there undercuts you in your monetary value - since there's only so much 'entertainment' you can throw at people before it reaches a saturation point.
Really - when faced with a game library of thousands and even millions, when all you have to offer is just another 'tired retread' of the past or your shitty 3D Space Invaders clone, then guess what? My app and all the programs that run in it are cutting away at your marketshare and actually KILLING YOU.
Funny how this stuff works right? But that is what happens when a mediocre programmer starts playing the MBA game - you are not good enough of a programmer or good enough of a 'manager' to 'really make it' as this self-styled 'BS' entrepreneur. What you are really is a desperate 'pretender/Wall Street' wannabe who is going to be at the short end of another big 'bubble economy' bust.
Really what you really are - is just another conmen. Just like Kevin Trudeau - just like any great swindler.
What you really should do is fuck off and stop pretending you give a rat's ass about 'open source' You'll never contribute a line of code to any open source project because you are a disgusting bottom feeder who only thinks about his shitty 'not-happening' careeer and how to swindle people.
