Fighting Two Wolves

Anyone have tips for fighting two wolves at once on Insane? I succeeded the very first time I tried, (on level 11) but since then it's been apparent that I was just really lucky. The problem of course is that all but their weakest attacks can kill you with one hit; and if your attack is reversed, th...

Sure sounds like a bug. Create a new player profile and see if that fixes it.

That's odd. Apparently David already noticed it; look at the last comment:

Yah, I got the same thing. I've seen this happen on other forms, a bit surprised it didn't happen here sooner.

Well, that depends. If, for example, you wanted to make a side scroller with physics... well, there's already an engine to save you alot of the work.

First off, cocoa can ONLY be used with obj-c, unless it is wrapped into C (see SDL for mac os x). Not entirely true... Second why would i ever want to program for anything but macosx, or perhaps linux? (and for linux, there's limited support for cocoa via. gnustep). You may never need nor want to. ...

If you ever attempt to write code for the mac (maybe you already do, I don't know), take a look at carbon. I use cocoa when I do guis, but it's a nice example. You don't have to use C++ to do OO. C can do it to. the difference: //blah blah blah... ObjectPtr obj; int err = ObjectDoSomethingWithObj(o...

Dude, C++ is much better than C. You really should use the OO paradigm. Given that C++ is backwards compatible with C, there isn't really any excuse not to. I like Objective-C best, but can't use it very often due to its limited cross platform application. Java is also very awesome. I use that ofte...

Just leave it out. There is no equivalent, nor a need for one on the Mac platorm.

I usually use Python, C/C++, and PHP depending on my needs. PHP for web development, C for anything requiring iterative speed (i.e., doing the same thing over and over as fast as possible), C++ for speed with added flexibility (though I actually haven't used it much), and Python for everything else....

Hey, me too! :) My plan is to learn it, then use Cocoa as a GUI framework for my Python apps.
