Longest Backup.. EVER!!
Finally, SyncToy has reached a point where it's no longer stumbling across oodles of random files that it somehow managed to miss on the previous 80-or-so passes.
My Backup is now 100% Complete, and I did indeed create a BlitzMax utility to similarly scan the two drives, to ensure they were "mostly" identical.
The filelist is duplicated, and file sizes are the same, so I'm going to assume that SyncToy managed to duplicate the files properly, and not just make blank files that happened to be the correct size!!!

The only files missing are desktop.ini and Thumbs.db
For some reason, even though SyncToy has been told to sync EVERYTHING, it's just plain bloody well ignoring those.
Meh, whatever..

So with the backup finally complete, it's time to jump back into the Dev folder and start updating things.
First thing's first, the Android edition of SpikeDislike3.
I really should've released it about a week ago, but with all the crazy Backup stuff going on, I didn't want to confuse the system any more than it already was.
Suffice to say, if you have an Android system, you'll now find 200 levels in your version of SpikeDislike3 (or if not, you might want to poke it and prod it, until GooglePlay decides to update it for you!)

Meanwhile, last night I started to draw a horse.
I suck at drawing!!
.. Animating is a whole other issue!!!


Daily Doodle : Grapple Point

PlatBat finds a handy hook near the top of the building, and uses it to make his way up.
He really doesn't like stairs.


Today's mail comes from GfK

I'd like to know your thoughts on rhubarb.

It's my opinion that we don't see enough rhubarb in games. There should definitely be more games about rhubarb. And stinking bishop cheese.


Rhubarb is one of those Love/Hate things. Nobody "kinda" likes Rhubarb. Either you love it, or you hate it.. I love Rhubarb, especially when served in Rhubarb Crumble, with oodles of thick custard over the top.
Nom nom nom!

As for ingame-rhubarb. Perhaps as a fighting implement?
Rhubarb Warriors?
Crazy Rhubarb?
Rhubarb on Ice?
Spiky Rhubarb?

I'm not sure what sort of game you'd want!!


If you'd like to stuff my mailbag, (Please do!) you can do so right here, at Send comments, questions, game ideas, thoughts and more, and they'll probably turn up here, eventually.
