but it's a pretty cool way of tracking who is downloading your files (if released in the wild)
What exactly do you mean by that?

Im interested as well; what did you mean?

@ silekonn
i want a program to use lcd panel's Fn+arrow to dim the screen.
if you want a program to use the 'Fn' + Up/Down arrow to dim the screen, why not just use an AHK script that hits the button for you, then u can have preset dim levels and what not and do what u want with it...

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for or not, but after reading all this it seems to me that rewriting another program for it would involve a series of things that would be difficult, but not impossible...

@ app
hrm, sry I cant help you there yet app :) good luck on finding someone though :)

DC Gamer Club / Something similiar to XFire...
« on: October 02, 2008, 01:24 PM »
So i've been wanting to use IRC inside of my games when they are running... so I dont have to alt-tab out and what not... I've figured out the core of what I need to do to make a program overlay a game and here it is:

   //scan for the game handle with
   bool WINAPI EnumDesktopWindows();

   //With the HWND you can access the DC with
   HDC GetDC(HWND hWnd);

   //now create a DC where you can copy the screen
   HDC CreateCompatibleDC(HDC hdc);

   //and a bitmap to access the data
   HBITMAP CreateCompatibleBitmap(HDC hdc, int nWidth, int nHeight);

   //link them together
   HGDIOBJ SelectObject(HDC hdc, HGDIOBJ hgdiobj);

   //copy the screen into our DeviceContex
   BOOL BitBlt(...);

   //access the bits with
   LONG GetBitmapBits(HBITMAP hbmp, LONG cbBuffer, LPVOID lpvBits);

But, what im wanting to know is: Does anyone else know what im talking about here? If so, lets work together on this... could be amazing since there is only currently only 1 IRC Client that works in games (Gamepe) and it doesnt work with NVIDIA cards...

DC Gamer Club / Re: Who Amongst us Plays WoW?
« on: September 25, 2008, 10:59 AM »
I think they have done a semi-good job considering that this effort to push players farther in levels, quicker is only to promote people to buy old versions of the game and upgrade to the expansion. There is another expansion, "Wrath of the Lich King," coming out November 13th, so they are doing these promotional's for marketing only. Blizzard would never actually try to HELP us... lol... What they have ruined though is the arena system at level 70; it's completely uneven and it sounds like the programmer's who come up with the match-making algorithms need to be fired and new one's from DC forums need to be hired... It's sad to see such a great feature like the Arena system be so unbalanced by so many uneven classes... After all, even with my complaints about the Arena system, I still manage to play the arena system competitively for money/contests.

nowadays, maybe a day or 2... They have a promotional "Recruit-a-friend" thing where u and a friend get 300% exp when next to each other for like 90 days or something... well, thats what my friend and I did and I went from 50-60 in like 1 day... it was ridiculous how quick it went... 56->57 took me 14 minutes... U get triple the xp for quests too, so I stockpiled a ton of complete quests and turned them in, in mass and i FLEW through lvls... My current played time on my 67 druid is 5 days 7 hrs total time played... its roughly 2 weeks old... Idk if that gives u an idea?

Well now you can get ur lowbie mount at 30 (they decreased it) and you can still get ur epic mount at 60.

I see how this is!!!?!

lol, kidding... I really am gonna get to learning this :)

Suprisingly, thats such an accurate statement Deo... but you gotta <3 Mouser :)

Well, to be honest, my updater doesnt do that... buttttttttt, this IS the game programming section, so if u have ideas as to how we could make a master repository list or something from which we could gather info about addons from multiple sites, post them! I want this updater to be something that can be used for quite awhile and not some little 2 day app :)

I've been looking into more information about collecting data from multiple sites and trying to figure out if I could add a list of sites to this updater from which it can check for the latest greatest... It would definately be a difficult task because it would have to gather all the info from those multiple sites and compare versions from each to check to see which is the most update... We could make the program have a rating system for which addons, when compared with other sites, are the most up-to-date and add all kinds of statistics for the user :)

I wanted to incorporate the idea of a "Addon 'Store' " from which users could browse available addons and install them... But, these are just a few ideas of the many that exist...

The problem that I run into is when I try to collect data from other addon sites like curse... simply because they, themselves, do not have a master list of addons like wowace does... It was easy to acquire data from wow ace because there list was in xml (and sloppy) but i parsed it for the data and figured out what could be used... I used the same method to grab the news from WoW Insider :)

DC Gamer Club / WoWAM - An addon manager to replace your WoW Launcher
« on: September 23, 2008, 12:02 PM »
With the constant flow of new updates for your favorite addons, it can get very tiresome to continually keep your World of Warcraft addons updated. I wanted a simple solution that made the task at hand easy. I didnt want a million extra options that clutter my addon manager. I checked some of the other addon managers available and while most of them did the job very well, none satisfied me personally. So, I took it upon myself to code something that I, along with other users, would enjoy. WoWAM is the result and it does the job very well! This addon manager provides the latest news straight from WoW Insider and checks to see if your addons are the latest greatest! I even added a button to launch WoW right from the program. Take note to the fact that you have to install the addon from my manager for it to show up in the list of currently installed addons but future plans to make this program recursively scan your addon directory to find the list of installed addons is in the making (given WoWAce's future plans don't take place too soon.)

Long story short, download it here.

While I cannot post a solution immediately, I am looking into this as I would be interested on coding something for you. I am going to speak with a few other DC members in the IRC channel after class as to what the best way to go about this would be. If anyone else can provide something that does the task better, please do... I'll keep you updated to my status on this prooject in the time coming.

I have left the light on to the hallway right outside my room every day now... I even leave it on when I sleep... Im paranoid after that happened. I bring my laptop with me everywhere I go as well, even if its the grocery store. It doesnt leave my sight. As for backup, I'm writing my own utility to do a web backup to my website which is managed by Siteground ( This seems to be the most efficient way to store things now...

Unfortunately, I am a very big fan of World of Warcraft... If I could change the habit, I would... lol! I just love the game and the dynamics behind MOST of it... (not all)... But, anywho... My starter questions are: (1) Who Plays WoW? (2) What server and PvP or PvE? (3) What race/class?

I'll go first....

Dalvengyr - PvP
Night Elf Druid (Resto spec)
