17:07:39: * bvowk wonders about impomatic
17:12:58: <Doxin> bvowk: whatcha wondering?
17:15:05: <bvowk> I've got a warrior to show him.
17:15:28: <bvowk> I've been playing with a goofy machine learning method of redcode generation
18:06:25: <bvowk> how about you? Doing anything interesting?
18:23:29: <Doxin> bvowk: nope!
18:23:35: <Doxin> nothing corewars related at least
18:33:32: <bvowk> What about non corewars?
19:12:50: <Doxin> bvowk: I'm writing a tool to pack sprite sheets more densely
19:13:20: <Doxin> which is pretty important if you use big sprites
19:15:02: <Doxin> not so much on disk as in memory
19:19:25: <Doxin> bvowk: riveting stuff :P
19:19:50: <bvowk> That does sound interesting, what are you writing this for?
19:22:53: <Doxin> bvowk: nothing specific actually
19:23:20: <Doxin> bvowk: my intention is to write a full game programming workflow in the end, I'm just doing it piece-by-piece
19:23:33: <Doxin> bvowk: I've got a library to do narrow phase collision detection too.
19:25:06: <Doxin> bvowk: I'll probably work on a lib for doing broad phase next
19:29:21: <bvowk> What's your target platform?
19:32:01: <Doxin> bvowk: desktop, multiplatform
19:32:13: <Doxin> no real reason it couldn't be ported to other platforms later though
19:32:55: <Doxin> bvowk: basically anything gcc can compile to is a possible target.
19:37:41: <bvowk> That's a few platforms.
19:39:17: <Doxin> it sure is
19:39:36: <Doxin> bvowk: I'm aiming at linux initially, but porting to windows will be trivial enough.
19:41:37: <bvowk> Is this toward a game you have in mind, or just a project in search of inspiration for one?
19:43:07: <Doxin> I haven't got a game in mind yet
19:43:13: <Doxin> probably a platformer or some such
19:48:33: <bvowk> I was chatting with someone the other day about teaching a DQN to play SFII
19:49:17: <bvowk> I'm tempted to give it a try, but I'm a bit short on computrons for something like that I suspect.
19:53:07: <bvowk> platformer reminded me of that conversation, we were talking about mario first.
19:53:24: <bvowk> But I'd really like to play a solid learning opponent in SFII :)
19:57:02: <bvowk> At the office in NY where I was working with PK, there was the fish that played SFII
19:57:16: <Doxin> ?sfii?
