A brand new game
for Windows, HTML5, iPhone, Android TV and more,
A brief roundup of the things I've managed to accomplish, during 2017.
1. Online ScoreboardsIt's been a long time since I last had online scoreboards in my general AGameAWeek games. iOS's GameCenter made me lazy, and I could never be bothered to implement anything more complicated into my Framework.
But this year, I opted to take on the challenge, so right at the start of this year I added an "Enter Your Name" thing into my framework, and tied the scoreboard system to the server.
A number of games from this year have had Online Scoreboards added to them, and can all be found here.
My laptop's getting slower.
I'm really not sure why.
If I have to buy another one,
My bank account will cry.
After a good number of days working on this, I've finally got it up to a mostly functional state!
For now, you navigate the controller using "default" buttons, so hopefully that works well enough to allow for that.
I've still not started work on the thumbsticks, yet, but the code does at least allow for analogue controls, so it shouldn't be too hard to add.
Such a struggle to get to this point.
This isn't as much of a painful goodbye,
As I've said all of that once before.
But it still is a shame to be saying farewell.
I just wish we had time for some more.
James "Jayenkai" Gamble is a coder who likes to code!
Having attempted and failed at both GCSE and ALevel computing, mostly due to becoming overwhelmingly bored at their idea of computing (Punched cards, Binary and How to Use a Wordprocessor!), I inevitably gave up on the idea of ?computing? as a career.
Coding is my hobby.
I enjoy the freeform nature of my hobby, and will continue with it until I become bored with it!
I create because I enjoy creating, and if anyone happens to enjoy the results, then that's all good.

Health / The Brain Tumour!!In March 2012, I was rushed into hospital with a fairly large cyst/tumour in my head.
After several months stuck in hospital with tubes trickling ooze from the inside of my brain, and generally vomiting every single day, for months, I was eventually let out.
Since then I've had to tackle sickness, nausea and a terrible amount of issues with my balance, a combination of which have caused me to be pretty much entirely housebound.
I occasionally blog about my health status.. If you're interested, you can find a selection of them here. But I try not to keep banging on about it!!
If you've any health related questions, feel free to ask me via twitter/email.
