Forums - General Discussion - Kwaad's Wii harshness.

..of course I don"t want MS to monopolize the market.. not for fanboy reasons, but because I want progress in technology. The PC operating system market is dead since MS monopolized it. The open source initiatives kind of revive this market, but no-one dares to invest against MS. there are more "degrees" (Wikipedia): -------------------- In mathematics, angles in degrees are rarely used, as the convenient divisibility of the number 360 is not so important. For various reasons, mathematicians typically prefer to use the radian. In this system the angles 180° and π radians are equal, or equivalently, the degree is a mathematical constant ° = π⁄180. This means, that in a complete circle (360°) there are 2π radians. The circumference of a circle is 2πr, where r is the radius. With the invention of the metric system, based on powers of ten, there was an attempt to define a "decimal degree" (grad or gon), so that the number of decimal degrees in a right angle would be 100 gon, and there would be 400 gon in a circle. Although this idea did not gain much momentum, some scientific calculators still support it. An angular mil (milliradian) is 1⁄1000 of a radian, which is convenient for survey and distance estimations due to simple trigonometry. In computer games which depict a 3 dimensional virtual world, the need for very fast computations resulted in the adoption of a binary, 256 degree system. In this system, a right angle is 64 degrees, angles can be represented in a single byte, and all trigonometric functions are implemented as small lookup tables. There is currently no known name for this unit. ----------------- Smoking pot, I guess all of them did, it's legal here so what?



Around the Network

The most common measurements are radians and degrees...and they're not just European...everyone around the world uses the 360 degree system regularly.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

Can you point to the more degrees. A radian is a radian and a degree is a degree.



@Jack.. I hate to repeat myself, but I wrote: In computer games which depict a 3 dimensional virtual world, the need for very fast computations resulted in the adoption of a binary, 256 Degree system. In this system, a right angle is 64 Degrees, angles can be represented in a single byte, and all trigonometric functions are implemented as small lookup tables. but please focus on what this topic was about.. Kwaad stated that the Wii is boring, and he loves his PS3 better.



Topics based on opinion will never go anywhere he just wanted to get this off his chest and see how people will react. Knowing that this site leans to the Wii console he may have been trying to push a few buttons to see were is going. I don't own a Wii and I will never own a Wii because I have bad shoulders and I don't see the graphics advantage to it. BTW I hate to repeat myself but show me where there are different types of degrees. What you pointed out is called a look up table. Look up tables are also used to tell what keys you are inputing through the keyboard. Therefore my question still stands.

You do know that's refering to radians, which is never called degrees Degrees ALWAYS means 360 for a full circle, this system is universal. America doesn't have some "special" system of measuring degrees or any other mathematical unit. It's like saying that squaring a number is different in europe, or derivatives arn't the same thing in china.

Kwaad, I love your attitude.. It's nice to see that your simple opinion attracts such passionate, furious responses and personal attacks on your person
Well OK Nicnl, you just plain admitted that you like trolls, which isn't really what I woudl call a smart move. At least we know right from the start what you are. I find it sad really to be satisfied to be a troll. Usually, it means a mind not really mature.
I always have to laugh when I see people defending their game console
Going on on the troll path. Well, people defending something, means that someone attacked it. Now, you basically laugh at someone that is attacking something that by your own words, is a plain mere product. What are you even doing here then ? Why did you even took the time to post such lowly words ? Anyway, discussing always had some kind of competition in it. You can discuss about lots of useless things. Consoles are one.



Moi je suis pas tout à fait d'accord avec l'avis général de ce topic, mais je crois que certains on torts, d'autre on plutôt raison.
Après c'est selon l'appréciation de chacun. mais moi je dirais que peut-être, on est jamais sur.



What do you think about the wii now?



Well, noone is going to mention the 360.... it has the best games..



And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this PS4... And this gaming PC. - The PS4 and the Gaming PC and that's all I need... And this Xbox 360. - The PS4, the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360, and that's all I need... And these PS3's. - The PS4, and these PS3's, and the Gaming PC, and the Xbox 360... And this Nintendo DS. - The PS4, this Xbox 360, and the Gaming PC, and the PS3's, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too. I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The Gaming PC and PS4, and Xbox 360, and thePS3's . Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.
