Hello people of /diy/,

I plan on making a game over the next couple of days but don't know which engine/platform I should use.

I want to make the game in 2D, so unreal 4 would be a little overkill. The issue is that I don't want to use something that's too light and end up making the entire thing from scratch.

I'm ok on Java but don't want to mess with LWJGL.

What would you guys recommend?

Sorry, m8. If you want a good way to build a frame, you gotta learn to frame like someone who's paid to do so. It's not difficult per se, but you're essentially paying for the cost of materials (bought wholesale), power tools & carpentry hardware (+ labor, which allows the framer to eat every now and then) when you go to Michael's or to anyone else for that matter. However, you can probably luck out by finding someone else, who isn't big box corporation, to do it, e.g. art gallery, local artist interest group, etc.

It's all down to what sort of frame you want, thin frame or one with a lot of detail will be harder to make, a frame that is a little chunkier or more "rustic" less so, go check out YT for vids.

Also check junk shops and thrift stores, they often sell shitty pictures in great frames for pocket change, just buy it and put you picture in there instead.

Hey folks, I'm restoring my bathroom at the moment including a brand new walk in shower.

I was in the store today and saw pebble tiles - never heard about them before - and I wanted to ask you, if anyone knows:

- How do they "feel" at your feet? Are they uncomfortable when you stand on them barefeet for like ten minutes?

- are the grouts (is that the word?) harder to clean than with regular tiles?

- Being natural pebbles, do I have to seal them with anything?


Thanks in advance guys

Grout. No S. I just use some spray on cleaner after every shower.

>Being natural pebbles, do I have to seal them with anything?
The brand I used didn't use real natural pebbles. They were standard ceramic tile materials made to look like pebbles. So, YMMV.

>I just use some spray on cleaner after every shower.

so basically the same as with regular tiles?! Sounds easy

Well, I guess they are natural pebbles since they all have different colors and look and feel like real pebbles. Guess I'll have to ask the store clerk about that.

In personally think that they look just tits - much better than any tile I saw

Why not just buy some loose pebbles and make fill your shower bottom with them about 4 inches deep?

>Can one do at least basic microelectronics and IC soldering in the context of a uni robotics and electronics club?
It is easily possible to use MOST surface-mount IC's yourself. {---I dunno a whole lot here, but will say what I do think I know....---}

Pic related: there is little circuit boards made that have solder pads for various kinds of surface-mount chips on them, with traces that lead out to thru-hole pads that you can solder wires into.
You can solder SMD chips onto these with a decent soldering iron, solder and flux. And some practice too, of course... Search "SMD soldering" on youtube for videos showing various techniques.

There is also a method called "dead bug style" where you get some thin bus wire, and solder your own wires onto each of the SMD's contacts so you can use it on a normal prototyping board.

There is also a style of IC packaging/mounting called "PLCC", where the chip isn't soldered at all. You solder a base down, and the chip just snaps into the base.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plastic_leaded_chip_carrier
This sounds great, but it has two problems:
1--it's a rather expensive mounting method. And due to that,,,,
2--not a lot of chips are available in this type of package, and those that are tend to be rather expensive. The main reason this type of mount is used is if the chip is fragile and could be easily damaged by the heat of soldering.

Be warned that longer distances between chips means that each connection has more capacitance and may have more inductance as well. These can *easily* interfere with high-speed signal transmission.
As a general rule, it is best to try to keep the physical connection lengths as short as practically possible.
It is entirely possible for a chip to suffer from its own EMF interference, and PCB layouts sometimes have to be revised multiple times to reduce this problem to acceptable levels.

Thinking home defense. Hit a panic button that shuts off the lights in the house, activates strobes in every room, and wear goggles that allow you to see everything while the burglar is disoriented.

The valve is open when the knob is parallel to the flow direction through the valve and closed when the knob is perpendicular to the flow direction. This is true for most valves with non-round knobs.

I use the cheapest beard trimmer from Walmart for monthly trims but have it trimmed by my barber for special occasions.

If you want a Really good trimmer you're going to be paying alot starting with a fine toothed set of metal guards for a beard trimmer. You'll need to oil it after every use and send it to a sharpener ever few years.

My walmart one is some Remington with 8 interchangeable heads. I only use the beard trimmer heads (height adjustable head and some clip on heads all wide toothed plastic.). It's wireless, doesn't lose its charge for months, I never oil it and clean it 1 time a year. I've bought 2 so far, only bought the second one because I thought I lost the first in a move. The first one is 2 years old. I don't know which one is on my counter right now. For my mustache I use scissors I got from somewhere when I'm growing it to a styled length. Otherwise I trim it to the same length as my beard.

If your looking to keep the facial hair looking the best at all times then a once every 2 week trip to the local barber is your best bet (you're probably going to get your hair trimmed anyway if you do care all that much.) The low quality trimmers will miss hairs unless you're thorough and the the high quality metal guards miss less but are very costly.

Well, for your actual face, you can't go wrong with a classic safety razor. The blades are super cheap, and it provides a much closer shave than the multi-bladed disposable ones. It's certainly easier to cut yourself when you haven't gotten used to it yet though.
I suggest buying shaving soap instead of cream. You can use a shaving brush to lather up the soap apply it to your face with a relatively thin coat (after soaking your face for a few mins with a hot, damp towel).

The solar charger thing seems a little unimportant given that it's an e-reader, battery life on my Kindle (one of the older ones, not back lit or touch screen) is months...

As for the waterproof/dust proof, you could just make a thin case for an existing eReader, they don't produce much heat so no need for venting and if you're going down the "non-touch screen" route you wouldn't need to worry about that, all you'd need is a few rubberised surfaces for the buttons it has.

Battery life on ereaders is crazy long, but the issue with long term use on them is the li-ion cells simply dont hold their charge.

And to be completely honest that looks like a cheap guitar. Just because all the binding is painted on. But, if it sounds good, if it plays good, go for it. I'd hate to see you drop $50 in something you're never going to use, unless you plan on doing this again, better to practice refinishing on a crap guitar than a more valuable instrument.

Hey, quick question, my router is in the next room. It's really close by. Can I just drill a hole in the wall and connect it from there, versus having it going underneath the house?

Check with your landlord to see if it's allowed. Physically speaking, it should work fine.

If you own the house, you could fucking burn it down and no one would give a shit

No. It's well known that dry wall and wood causes electrofermagnetic interferettence in cables run through them. The effect is not great on telephone wires which run at low frequencies, but your video games will lag because of the high frequency signal getting slowed down.

Why the fuck did you think you had to make a new thread to ask this question?

Hey guys,
So I live in a rental in Australia.

The house is an old style Queenslander with an concrete under house section.
Whichever genius built this place decided that to get extra head room under the house they would just excavate down a foot or so and concrete line the whole thing.
It rains heavily regularly here and the under house is constantly being flooded with water.
Pictured is an area of water upswell which literally fountains up from beneath the house slab when it rains.
Clearly there the water is running through the ground being pressurised...

You could try to seal it up but its doubtful it would help. In how many areas are you having water ingress? If its just a few it might be better to get a pump or two and just pump as needed to get the worst of it out.
>>
I would imagine that sealing out groundwater is a losing battle. It'll just pop up someplace else. Sump pump I guess.
>>
Op here :

I guess the solution would be for the next 6 months, so it really only needs to be a temp kinda thing.
There are at least 2 major ingress spots and possibly smaller in the multiple cracks.

Definitely a losing battle.

Silicon- look at some smooth-on stuff

Silicone huh how does the process work?

Mix the two components, pour over thing to be copied, vacuum, let cure.
When cured, it will be pretty elastic, and should be kinda easy to remove. Once it's removed, pour in epoxy resin and vacuum out the air bubbles. Let cure, and remove your copy.

This motorola sounds excellent, even came with a 15" subwoofer in 1960!

It sold for $500 new, which is the equivalent t to $3600 today

G'day cunt, search for a fucking usb microphone, use your imagination and technical skills to take apart the fucking mic and maybe add a longer usb lead to connect to your porn box, maybe add a switch to the phone to switch the fucking on or off or mute, fucking work it out yourself cunt, post pics here when you're done mate, good luck.

59 KB,
I'm really stuck on this circuit I'm trying to build to heat and cool a block. The thermal blocks heats and cool based on whether I apply a +12/-12V at each of its inputs and I have to swap them manually to invert the heating/cooling function.

I was thinking of using an Arduino that sends a Digital signal to a multiplexer to convert the voltage whenever I reach a certain temperature.

So when I am at 60c, I want to heat, and at 95C I want to cool and cycle back and forth. I want to swap the voltages but I'm not sure if I can do this with a multiplexer....

You'd end up with a much simpler design by simply using a pair of relays.
Since the thermal blocks likely use a decent amount of power you're running them with a decent set of Transistors or Relays in the first place.

>>1010541
And I noticed you already got the exact same answer on /g/.

Good on them.

I was going to say to use an H-bridge, but somebody in /g/ knew enough to say that already....
An H-bridge is a type of circuit that does exactly what you want here: it swaps polarity between two wires.
You can buy H-bridge ICs...
