comment Is Angry Birds deterministic?
Guys, this whole discussion is nonsensical. In IT a program is deterministic if every time you run it, without changing the operating system settings, it always gives the same result. So if the program calls rand() it's not deterministic even if the number is not really random; there is no need to go so deep with the meaning of the word. We'll soon end up in a discussion about the existence of free will if we continue to try to go up the chain

@Daenyth: are you sure that the input resolution precision is 1 pixel? It may be, but what I'm saying is that it is not necessarily.

@Origami: I can't be sure, if I could be I wouldn't have needed to ask here would I =) In any case what makes me suspect that there may be a random factor involved is that the input resolution can't be so high
