Sorry for the Delay

Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

Was busy with Christmas, that’s why I haven’t been posting. I suppose anyone that did read surely doesn’t read anymore, but I won’t worry about it I guess. Maybe when i’ve got some decent progress on stuff i’ll start “advertising”. Anyhow…
I got a gamecube for christmas with Mario party 7. Which […]

Post todo for today

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Well it looks like I got to all the items in my list. Probably won’t happen very often. Still I didn’t make any real progress on Enchanted Lands, or Learning C++, or even on Hypno-Joe as all I did was read some documentation. Shoot I didn’t even get to do that much […]

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. […]

Enchanted Lands : No real progress today.

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Hopefully this will be the last in posts showing no progress. Essentially I had went through several of my older stories which were related to this project, each have variations that don’t gel with each other. In one instance we have an opening that shows a young man open a portal to another […]

Completing a Project

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

I ran across a thread on the Indiegamer forums entitled Tips for starting, developing and actually completing. Someone with the name of zKing posted what I consider to be the most useful comments in this particular post.
Of particular note:
3. Always have a list of the top 5 or so things that are the most […]

Hypno-Joe: Game dev kit

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Well I did accomplish something today. I decided before going through the tutorial, I would instead read the help file (documentation). I only got as far as reading about creating an editing tilesets. Tommorow i’ll start on map editing, maybe even finish the regular documentation there. And then I will read […]

Apartment cleaning.

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Welp unfortunately the vaccum cleaner no longer works. I’m real sure it has something to do with the contacts in the cleaner itself. The battery was warm, and I had no problem yesterday. Well not entirely true, it sometimes doesnt’ work, and only took me smacking it a couple of times for […]

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 […]

Plan for today (almost over).

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Well I didn’t get to posting this till now, and it’s almost 1PM pacific time. But i’ll do it anyways. This should be the format i’m following for todo posts. Essentially i’ll start with what all I want to accomplish that day, projects-wise. Then sometime at the end of the day […]

The breakout clone that wouldn’t quit.

Thursday, December 22nd, 2005

Okay I know you’re probably tired of hearing about this little breakout clone. But I found something out. I have a video-capture card with video out (the ati all-in-wonder 9600 xt) and sometimes I’m playing video off of my computer to my tv. When it comes time to record a tv show […]
