Developments


Yesterday, someone new registered on my home village's website (LittleLever.info)
They, of course, instantly forgot their password, so used the "I forgot my password" button to find it out.

At this point I should probably explain why I've mentioned this..!
About a year ago, the original owner of LittleLever.info gave up paying for a site that never had any visitors. He stopped payments, and the site fell into disrepair before eventually getting pulled down completely.
At this point, being the type of person who doesn't like seeing good domain names go to waste, I opted to take control.
I paid for the domain, paid for hosting, and got things up and running as soon as I possibly could.

After a while, spambots took control of the bog-standard phpBB script, and in a desperate attempt to quench them all, I took down the old forum, and replaced the entire thing with my own code.
Socoder.net's script was hacked and slashed to generate an all new LittleLever.info

The site remains up and running, and is moderately stable and spambot free.

.. Which brings us back to yesterday.
So far, nobody had used the "I forgot my password" link, mostly because there's only actually 6 registered users. (OMG, it's SO quiet!!!)

Yesterday, when the newest member clicked the link, I was immediately alerted to a very very minor issue.
...
The fact that I'd hacked and slashed the code from Socoder.net meant that, far from the user getting a "You forgot your LittleLever.info password!" email, they instead got a "You forgot your Socoder.net password!" email, and all the links were broken, and everything was just plain wrong!

Whoops!!

Five hours later, after scouring through hundreds of .php files, I think I managed to track down all references to Socoder, and changed them to Little Lever!
This pretty much killed any/all coding I'd intended to do, yesterday, but at least it was a fun little adventure, digging through old code and making lots of tweaks.

Perhaps, in the future, I should make 99% of those things a single easily-changeable variable.
.. That would be the sensible thing to do!

A tool to aid in the playing of Real World Scrabble. You can use this to add up word values, keep track of scores, and it even has minimal word checking integrated, too.
This tool works great when run on a board-side tablet*.

(*Landscape only! I lazily haven't added Portrait buttons.)

128Mb Ram.. That's what the specs on Wiki says that the 3DS should have.
But all these complications I'm having.. The whole thing seems to be tripping up on pretty much anything I throw at it.

Help Roland get all his biscuits from the crazy maze, using only the power of his epic pushing arms.

With each release comes an influx of feedback from the many people who've played the games.

This week, @RSKGames takes a look at an underwater Snake clone.

You can Download Slithering Waters here.

The title font design with the wavy pattern is nicely done.

Yesterday, I spent about 3 or 4 hours wrestling with DevKitPro, trying to figure out the best way to get my Framework running as 3DS Homebrew.

I said I was going to work on a Mini Clampett sequel this morning, so I cloned the project folder and opened it up, and then went "Hey, I bet I know what's wrong with the 3DS Engine.."

A test that failed.
My memory broke.
I'm not sure why.
I'll have to poke.

Every Tuesday morning, 10:30 GMT (or thereabouts, later if I sleep in!) I post a brand new game, right here on the site.

Each game is 100% coded by me, Jayenkai.
95% of the graphics are done by me (with rare dips into the Google Image archive when I'm absolutely dry) and 95% of the audio is also done by me (with rare dips into the Aminet archive, or Kevin MacLeod's collection for the odd bit of music when I'm not in a composing mood!)

If you'd like to read more about what tools I use, click here.
Over the many years that I've been doing this, there's been an extremely varied selection of games, from absolute gems, to complete stinkers, but each and every week there's something new, and if you're happy to try new things, then you might stumble upon a few games that you'll grow to love.

As well as a lot of games, I also create Music and am currently attempting to draw a Platdude based Pixelart every single day.
There's even daily blog posts to keep you informed about background inanities that happen in my life.

So much stuff!
Stick around, and enjoy the ride.

3DS Homebrew is all kinds of broke, right now, and I'm doing my nut trying to figure it out.
I decided, last night, after the millionth crash of the day, that I'd instead focus on something else for the rest of the week.

Deep in the forest,
The sprites are all hidden.
All of my drawing code's,
Broke and forbidden.
