    To develop for my ipod touch... until I realized the SDK is only available on macs... unbelievable.

    Of course I could get around that but then I wouldn't be able to submit them to the app store... fuck I hate apple.

    The last thing the app store needs is more 99 cent shit apps.

    lol too bad I am a professional software engineer with several published games. :rofl:

    Was going to basically port starcraft to it, but give it a witty name and just enough visual changes to make it legal. That or Total Annihilation, hadn't decided which way to go yet. Would probably have gone with TA, less likely to get sued by a non-existent game company

    I don't imagine you would care if you don't know anything about software development, no. And I can't imagine thats a very large crowd in the "Mac Shack"...

    I appreciate it as a gaming device and an internet appliance... for the 11tyth time. It needs a proper RTS and I was going to make something similiar to TA or Starcraft and sell it for 4.99

    Just because you're a "professional software engineer" with several published games doesn't mean you're games were of quality. Look at the Wii game lineup for example! :mamoru:

    I guarantee I could faithfully recreate starcraft or TA, assuming the device has the memory and processing capabilities, which I haven't looked into. I went to download the SDK from apple and realized I couldn't develop for it on a windows PC and so I haven't looked into it any further.

    I'll admit though I am not an artistic person, I don't have a great imagination, so I would rather recreate something or use an existing idea at least than come up with something. Also I cannot make graphics or sound effects for the life of my lol, so I usually use graphics from existing games, but thats exactly what you want for a port.

    Leave the Wii alone, 3rd party shovelware should not bring down a systems reputation when it has some equally awesome games

    The Wii is a great system, it's the game lineup that blows. 1 good EXCLUSIVE game for every 100 shit games. Games that were actually good I can count on one hand: Metroid, Zelda, Mario Galaxy, Mario Kart, SSBB.

    Unless you like to learn how to fake cook/surgery/sports.

    hell, microsoft wont even put a reasonable effort into making a version of office that is anywhere near on par with the windows versions.

    I can get through it with an inferior IDE, that wouldn't be a problem. But as far as I could tell apple goes to specific lengths to make it impossible to develop for it on a windows PC. I am not sure what that is, since code is code and a compiler is a compiler but I guess the specific tools you need, such as the device simulator and the ability to register it with the app store, are artificially restricted from use on a PC.

    there is nothing artificial about it. all of the development tools are written for and use parts mac os x, all of the code signing tools are written for mac os x and use it's certificate management, the simulator and other testing tools are written for mac os x. without paying a fee to get a certificate to plug into the code signing tools you cant get a program on the device, its as simple as that.

    just like everything written by microsoft is full of windows api junk and will never be ported to any other platform.

    Losers who haven't amounted to anything often think that is the norm. Unfortunately you are incorrect, there are plenty of people who actually accomplish things. I am a professional software engineer with a small fiber optic test and measurement company in central new york. I develop firmware for various products ranging from optical time domain reflectometers to chromatic dispersion testers and optical channel analyzers. I have also done work on a technology known as fiber fence which is a front line perimeter defense system that the military uses which utilizes fiber cables to detect minute pressure changes in the soil to alert that enemy soldiers may be tunneling under a fence.

    I have posted about my work on these forums dozens of times, you can see some screenshots from the latest OTDR firmware that I am working on here:
