Wiki button + ongoing maintenence

I noticed that the wiki has been put back up, awesome! However i find it very disturbing that you guys were that quick to remove a wiki that has been up since like 2008 (maybe longer) for the 'illegal files' thing. I mean, its a wiki. Its 99% text, you can just disable file uploads and then you woul...

Re: Some idea how x86 works, can I reverse algorithms now?

doesn't windows , when you compile things with C make it so all the function calls have underscores infront of them? I remember this because mac/linux doesn't do that so i was having problems calling stuff from assembly

Re: Ratchet and Clank Into the nexus Audio

For people who can't deal with command line programs, here is a GUI for it:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/962 ... dfiles.zip

just browse for a input directory, browse for an output directory , you shouldn't have to touch the filename mask, and then just hit go.

General - Program that will open all DDS textures?

I found that actually viewing a DDS texture is quite an annoying experience, as there doesn't seem to be a program that will open all 'types' of DDS textures, mainly compression as an example, GIMP will open them but only with dxt1, dxt3 and dxt5 compression, why not dxt4? =/ http://i.imgur.com/VeyF...

Re: Holy Cow

If people are wanting to reverse engineer your program and crack it and sell it as their own, they are going to do it, no matter what you do. You can go to great lengths to protect your game but the only thing you can really hope for is to just slow them down. You can do things like, if you have a c...

Re: Error 500 at editing Dinoguys1000's user talk page

You need to enable account registration or have someone else look at the problem, as its been almost a year and its still not fixed, which means people who want to contribute to the wiki cannot.

Re: Why do some DLL's contain C++ class information?

Its probably just internal logging, its not uncommon for logging frameworks to have macros that when you call LogThisError("something") it expands to something like ReallyLogSomething(level.Error, __FILE__, _CLASS_, __LINENO__) and whatever, that the c++ compiler fills in when its actually compiled....

Extracted audio hissing problem (Spyro Dawn dragon xbox360)

This is continuation of this topic here: http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=9909 , since both games are made by the same developer (√Čtranges Libellules), and while that topic is about a different game, it seems that √Čtranges Libellules used the same engine / file formats between both games...
