First attempt at a circle, using sine and cosine, and connect each “angle” with a line segment.

Not exactly smooth around some edges.

Next foray into graphics programming.

Thursday, March 27th, 2008

Well I managed to learn a little bit about lines and bresenham’s line. If I tried to explain to you what I learned, I would probably sound foolish, suffice it to say, I know a little bit, and yet a bit still eludes me. My attempt at drawing lines with this is working, […]

8-bit fun

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

I decided to go back to school… no not a real school, you know the OLD school. I generally want to attempt to learn graphics programming, eventually leading up to building a 3d graphics engine. Yep you read that right, 3D. But that is a long time coming. Right now it’s […]

My first C++ Program Redux

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

Well I modified my madlibs style program. I think i’m ready to move on now. But before I do I want to share with you this wonderful story. A story of mythical creatures and great heros, of villagers and problems, a story where good ultimately triumphs over evil :

There once was a […]

Learning C++ - A little funny story

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006

Okay there isn’t much i’ve done in this area. The goal by the end of the week (friday) is to have this madlibs style story working. The story in this post - Learning C++ is what i’m using. And I finally put it into the program that was referenced in this - […]

Phone Game

Tuesday, January 10th, 2006

Well I got done with what I needed to of that. Well enough to say i’m done and move on to another item of the “list”. Of course the successful indie mantra is “Do it now” which means if I have more I can just do, I should do it now. But […]

Phone Game

Wednesday, January 4th, 2006

Well shoot, I didn’t mean to post 15 mintues late, that means it will officially be added to January 4th. In any case the only thing I got done ‘today’ (really yesterday) is the phone game. It’s coming along nicely, not quite at beta stage yet, but almost there. Tommorow I should […]

Learning C++

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

In the interests of time I just came up with a quickie short story for my mad libs program. I won’t implement it until tommorow.
Here’s the story:
There once was a Dragon named Flame. Who scared poor villagers and burned down their huts. One day the village hired a Knight named Sir William. […]

Phone game.

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Success. I got what I needed to get done today. I realize you might ask yourself what is the reason for posting about something you’re not going to talk about. The only reason is to show you why I haven’t gotten to another item on the agenda. And I promise if/when […]

Regular programming work.

Monday, December 19th, 2005

One thing I didn’t mention here is I have a couple of “jobs” one is a phone game which I can’t really say much about, another is part of a web-based game called Droid Arena. It’s a game where you start out with some credits and you buy and build and then program with […]
