  1. Hi all The headless client architecture could be a useful solution to JIP synchronisation, say in CTI type games or any game where there are a large number of entities and dynamic objects and impact on the terrain, the headless client keeps a copy of the servers game data. I mentioned this some years ago in ArmA 1/2 when running the CoC modification. When a player JIPs in, the primary game server hands them off to the synchronisation client. This then acts as a sub server and serves them the data up until say x seconds of synchronisation, it then hands them back to the game server, which updates the last few seconds of game data. I might give it a go ;) Kind Regards walker
  2. Hi all In reply to BadHabitz Then you agree. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24135021 As always follow the link to read the text in full. Kind Regards walker
  3. Hi all Why America is NOT the greatest country in the world, any-more. Enough said. Kind Regards walker
  4. Hi all In the week of the Nobel prizes LENR is the front page news on Sweden's equivalent of New Scientist: We now have working cold fusion. http://www.nyteknik.se/asikter/debatt/article3854541.ece Swedish Government Energy Research company ELFORSK announces LENR research. This is what is driving down the price of oil: http://www.elforsk.se/LENR-Matrapport-publicerad/ Kind Regards walker
  5. Hi all The E-cat confirmed to work by Swedish Scientists working for the Swedish Government Energy research company Elforsk, the independent tests were run in an independent Swiss lab. Rossi merely installed the E-cat powder in their test rig and took it away after the tests. They were allowed to open it up and examine the contents before and after the tests, isotope analysis of the fuel and its resultant ash shows an unknown nuclear process, that needs further investigation. http://nextbigfuture.com/2014/10/third-party-report-on-32-day-continuous.html It is due to be published in Journal of Physics D and the Cornell University Arxiv it is currently under embargo but a leaked copy of an earlier draft of the reports is where this comes from. You can download the the leaked version of the report here: http://www.sifferkoll.se/sifferkoll/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/LuganoReportSubmit.pdf Kind Regards walker
  6. Hi all Latest NASA LENR report on what they were doing with in 2013: http://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/20140010088.pdf has been made public. Kind Regards walker
  7. Hi all Gun Debate Should apes like these be allowed to bare arms? Is the right to bare arms being properly Policed? You decide Walker ;)
  8. Hi all As I said it is for the people to decide what happens if democracy has failed. Kind Regards walker
  9. Hi all In reply to ProfTournesol The thread is about how US veterans are treated, veterans support is vastly underfunded while those who profiteered run off with US tax payers cash. It is for US citizens to decide what to do about it not politicians. Kind Regards walker
  10. Hi all Two links for you to compare and contrast. https://news.vice.com/article/at-least-22-veterans-kill-themselves-every-day-and-no-one-gives-a-shit http://leaksource.files.wordpress.com/2013/04/iraq-top-10-corporate-winners.jpg?w=604&h=478 Time for a 50% levy on those who profiteered on veterans lives? It would help reduce the numbers of homeless veterans and ameliorate the lives of those veterans and their families damaged by a senseless war. Kind Regards walker
  11. Hi all In reply to the points about age and ArmA Content. I am talking about the engine, not the game, I suppose I should have said Real Virtuality Engine. The Minecraft example is customised to purpose. Same as Real Virtuality was re-purposed to War Z, VBS, Take on Helicopters, Iron Front: Liberation 1944, Carrier Command Gaea, Take on Mars and all the other User MODs a version of the engine can be re-purposed to education. The concept is to realise the engine is a cash cow. Exposing potential programmers and gamers to the engine and its underlying concepts, would be a plus for BIS. It just needs a small team to set up an offshoot core mod team of say four. The first bit would be stripping ArmA back to essentials. Then adding in basic educational materials. The idea being that users would add in additional content same as they always have in the BIS community. Kind Regards Walker
  12. Hi all In Reply to MistyRonin on how to use the ArmA engine as an educational tool. To teach kids scripting right up to advanced programming. For the purposes of education in narrative for Language Composition and how it is used in film making and the games industry, via mission and campaign making. In project planing for large events. To teach mathematics with real world uses of maths, learning geometry using scripting makes the concepts more likely to stick. To teach Physics. To teach biology, consider linda. To geography, map reading but more important creating a terrain based on real terrain and what were the shaping factors that create natural terrains. I could go on but I am sure lots of other modders and mission makers will do so. Kind Regards walker
  13. Hi all An experiment by Edward Tsyganov of the University of Texas has shown LENR/ColdFusion taking place in a crystal lattice providing incontrovertible proof that LENR/ColdFusion is real. He Will be presnting it to the Russian nuclear community at: http://coldfusionnow.org/tsyganov-presents-at-dubna-conference/ As always follow the link to the original text in full PDF of the slides from the presentation: http://coldfusionnow.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Tsyganov-Dubna-Talk.pdf Kind Regards walker
  14. Hi all Minecraft is being used in Schools; would ArmA be a better option? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-27936946 With its free tools and coding abilities ArmA has superior educational benefits, for art, science, programming and story telling. Maybe BIS should consider an educational release? Kind Regards walker
  15. Hi all http://ecat.org/2014/nickel-hydrogen-research-center-opens-in-tianjin-china/ Follow link to read origin link in full Original source: http://www.icebank.cn/news/detail_2.php?id=118 Get a Chinese friend to translate or use Google Translate ;) Additional odd information: http://blueandgreentomorrow.com/2013/08/17/china-to-make-energy-efficiency-a-pillar-of-its-economy/ :) Kind Regards walker
