I think Pinball/Other electro-mechanical content would be quite apt. Afterall, this is what the likes of Sega, Namco, Brent, Bally, Williams and a whole host of other current (and sadly deceased) video game makers did before the video game era.

Re: Final Fantasy VII

The game gets lots of stick for its 10 Press X 20 Goto 10 The thing about FFVII is that it's not really about the story (which is compelling), the character development (which really bites when Aeris - your healer - kicks the bucket) or the exploration (which I never thought was that essential to t...

Hori Fighting Stick EX2

My Hori EX2 arrived today - very impressed so far. Sturdy construction, just heavy enough to feel substantial, but fits comfortably on the lap, nice responsive joystick and very satisfying buttons. Best of all, if you install the XBox360/Windows common controller drivers it works in Windows as well.

I'm not disagreeing with your whole point of view, you have a completely valid point but I think if Capcom would have given you that choice to simply break down almost any door it would have taken away from the clostrophobic atmosphere of the games. Just my opinion though. I appreciate your comment...

Well done. Brilliant. Yes. :roll: But surely that applies to every game ever? I mean look around you - there cannot be many doors in your house that could withstand many shoulders being put against it? Especially if there is a zombie, demon, alien, Nazi or mushroom after you? Did you have a point? ...

Tricky to say without knowing who worte the compiler you are using; if you can find that out, I may be able to point you in the right direction.

The compiler can't find where the header files are located, hence the error. This is more than likely because you need to set an environment path variable on your home pc or provide a command line switch for the compiler to tell it where to find the header files.

I don't hate it because it is vogue (cos I read Cosmo anyway). I hate it because it has a broken controll system that doesn't belong in any game unless you are controlling an RC robot. Not to mention the absolutely stupid "This door is locked... but wait a minute, I have a rocket launcher and that ...

I always bought a Wispa Bar and a Supercan of Fanta....anyone remember Supercans? were they the ones with red pants and a cloak? No - I think they were the 500ml variety of can, which whilst fine for lager and other serious mind rot, caused much puking and diabetes amongst the youth of the day. Sen...
