Any Rocksmith players here? I always felt that it would be useful to have tabs available for the songs you're trying to learn. Some passages are just very hard to figure out in-game, even with the riff repeater. I've finally taken matters into my own hands and written a tool that can export Rocksmith 2014 arrangements to Guitar Pro tabs (.gp5 or .gpx format). See link below. #Rocksmith #GuitarPro

Diablo Swing Orchestra released a new album - how did I miss that?!
Highly recommended if you are open for experimental metal / swing / jazz / whatever mix.

Anyone interested in helping us playtest SectorMania? It's meant to be a fun and simple RTS game in the spirit of the old classic 'Z', and we have just released a first prototype that you can grab at http://www.sectormania.de .
Graphics and sound are only placeholders right now, but we are looking for some feedback to get the gameplay right before we improve on the technical aspects in the next iterations.

I find it telling that the announced referendum in Greece causes stock markets to fall. Why? Do they fear that the will of the people does not coincide with the interests of the financial system? Surprising ... not.

Who the hell came up with the concept of "security questions" to let you recover your password in case you forget it? I mean, what's the point of having a strong, secure password if it can be recovered or reset by answering a question along the line of "what's your mother's maiden name" or "how is your pet called"?
Some sites allow you to enter your own question, but I must say I find it even harder to think of a question I alone can answer instead of just remembering my bloody password.

Yeah, if they force a preset on you, I usually enter garbage as the answer which nobody (including me) can possibly ever guess.

I finally found some time to update the ogredeps repository (which contains the source code of all the required dependencies for Ogre, coupled with a nice CMake build system). The dependencies are updated to their latest version, and all known problems should be resolved.
The dependencies build fine on Windows and Linux, support for additional platforms might come later.

We just released Ogre 1.8.1.
The first maintenance release for the 1.8 stable branch (codenamed 'Byatis') is now available. You can find a list of all the bug fixes after the jump. There have been quite a few, so if you are havin...

I'm hoping you check this every other day....
I tried for two freakin hours to get and run ogre on ubuntu 12.04 lts. Once downloaded (maybe?) i couldn't find it anywhere in my entire freakin system. 
How in the hell do you open/run/use/start a project in ubuntu if you can't even find the freakin thing?

Edit: I actually had more open tabs looking for ways to install/run/troubleshoot this freakin thing than i do when i'm looking for porn. That's freakin pathetic..

Ogre is again participating in this year's Google Summer of Code. If you'd like to work on Ogre during this summer, now would be a good time to introduce your ideas to the community :)

I just saw that BioWare has sent me a beta key for Star Wars: The Old Republic. This is kind of surprising in general because I've never been accepted into betas I applied for earlier. It's even more surprising because I didn't apply for this one.

I usually stay clear of any title with 'MMO' in it, but I guess I can safely give it a try now.

Nice series. :)
And a good pick for the first entry.

Heh, I'm getting really good at CMake script hacking. I've added an option to my local Ogre repository to combine all the Samples into a single target. Together with the Unity build option, this reduces compile times significantly - I can now build the complete Ogre project in approximately 1:30 mins.
There are a few quirks to iron out, but I hope to be able to push the changes this weekend. If all works out, Ogre 1.8 will be a hell of a lot faster to build than the previous release.
