  1. @FaiL___ You absolutely can add solution files in VS Code to your project folder just run the command 'dotnet new sln'. You then add the .csproj files to you sln by running the command 'dotnet sln mySln.sln add myApp/mycsProj.csproj' for each project. See documentation here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/core/tools/dotnet-sln EDIT: realised you're dealing with C++ so not relevant!
  2. Razer blade stealth! So I can enjoy your content in glorious 4k. But if you've picked this comment and already given it away I'll settle for the blade 14.. obvs.
  3. Try running on integrated graphics to see if the games start. I had to RMA the first 970 I got for a similar issue.
  4. @TechBlitZ Give the following CSS edits a go. .bootstrap-frm { margin-left: 5%; margin-right: auto; max-width: 500px; background: #FFF; padding: 20px 30px 20px 30px; font: 12px "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; color: #888; text-shadow: 1px 1px 1px #FFF; border: 1px solid #DDD; border-radius: 5px; -webkit-border-radius: 5px; -moz-border-radius: 5px; }.image { position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 0px; z-index: -1; }
  5. No point delaying, most apprenticeships dont ask for A-Levels. My employer just accepted me on predicted grades, and how personable I was. Now is the peak time for apprenticeship recruitment it being end of school year (my own employer is in fact holding interviews for new apprentices).
  6. Hi @Alir Im a .net developer here in the UK. Been at it for 2 years and got my job through QA Apprenticeships. The UK is looking more to apprenticeships to fill the technology skill gap that already exists here and is likely to increase over the next little while. However I do not think an apprenticeship will be right for you, mainly because of your ambitions to enter the game industry. By all means have a look around for apprenticeships but when I was looking I cant recall seeing much around in the games industry. I think a degree is more necessary to get your foot in the door in the games industry it being such a competitive space. So completing a sandwich university course like @squirrl recommended is a good shout, you get a degree and hopefully a year of good experience If after that the games industry isnt for you you are unlikely to have any trouble transitioning into a more generic software development position. EDIT: You are right about most likely not being able to pay off uni debt especially if you live out at uni. It was wrong of the government to increase tuition fees as they did what they effectively have done is implement a tax on uni grads until their debt is written off. That would have been a better option IMO, rather than scaring young adults with huge amounts of debt. We already have young people in this country topping themselves seeing no prosperous future for themselves imagine the impact a large amount of debt will have on their minds, might be enough to send a few over the edge.
  7. Ah Im with you know yeah see how that goes otherwise looks like you're going to need to find another PC to sort out these install files. Bit of googling points to corrupted install files
  8. So the windows install files are still on the USB? What you want to do is boot into BIOS and boot from the USB.
  9. Does anyone know if you can still get playlists curated by people other than Google on play music? They just seem to have automatically generated playlists now. I still have some playlists in my library which I followed a while ago but cant search for new ones! Think I remember reading they acquired this playlist tech from somewhere. The playlists kind of suck.
  10. The crocodile eats the big number lol how i learnt it when i was like 7 and still sometimes say it that way in my head
  11. Only thing I didn't like about the code was all the redundant return statements and initializing values for some fields. Unreachable break statement at line 525 Nothing wrong with your use of case statements =) Could use enums if you wanted the case statements to be more readable
  12. Might as well, saves a bit of hassle of clearing your hard drive of windows folders and files and reinstalling windows. Thats enough of a reason dont really see any pros of getting the hard drive first to be honest.
  13. @Smithy2402 I stick to clean installs. How long will it be until you get a hard drive? SSD should serve you well for 1-2 months. If you did buy the hard drive first you don't have to completely wipe the hard drive when you're done with the OS on it just move the files you want to a higher level folder and delete all the windows stuff off it.
  14. @Ethnod I have a Nexus 5 for personal use and a Samsung S4 as a work phone. Both will be fine for your needs and not break the bank. Also similarly specd. Really its a choice between stock android or Samsungs skin of android which for what ever reason i cant remember the name of.
