25th May, 2009
I'm a calm person.
I will happily settle with what I've got, and be glad that I have it.
I don't own a copy of Flash, I can't afford it, and I'm not going to steal it.
So I carry on making games in Blitz, and whatever else I can get my hands on.
So, with my £100 Phone, from LG, (The KP500 'Cookie') I started to write games using the freely available MidletPascal.
It's a wonderful piece of software, and it does many great things.
But, the Cookie has many many issues with Java.
For starters, the Java they put into it, point blank refuses to work with the accelerometer they also put into it.
Which means, you can't make ANY games that make use of it.
The only things on the phone that DO use it, are the following.
1. Onscreen keyboard. Turn the phone around and up pops the touchscreen keyboard.
2. Photo gallery. Turn the phone around to look at the phone in widescreen.
3. Roll the Dice game. A game so mindbogglingy crap that a cat could probably get a better score than you.
See, to make use of said accelerometer, you need to use the internal Flash (Lilac-UI FX or something to that effect.)
The problem, of course, is that LG have made this specially for said Cookie, and won't share it.
They won't let ANYONE access the thing.
Which means, my lovely useful phone contains an accelerometer, who's life is destined to pretty much just turn photos around.
It really really really really sucks.
So, off to the LG site goes Jay, and he requests some info about it.
LG responded with the following wonderful piece of information.
Let's try again, shall we.
To which they wonderfully replied with..
"Buy a more expensive phone. We like money."
So, here's my great big Fuck You to LG.
You're all a bunch of money grabbing arseholes.
Your phones might sell better if you actually give a shit.
Don't buy an LG KP500 Cookie.
In fact, fuck it.
Don't buy ANY LG phone.
I'm not a fan of digg, but Digg LG's arses off.
