You can Download Lazy Man's 3DS Theme Generator here, but you'll need a couple more utilities on your system to make full use of it.


Editing Themes


To edit 3DS Homebrew Themes, you'll need a decent editor. I use the editor "Usagi"
You can download that here
For reference, the version I use is v1.0.12.1 - I'm not sure if there are other (better or worse) editors available, as I found this one and was comfortable using it.

A nice big chunk of feedback from Alan this morning, on the new Crossword Game, so let's dig through his thoughts.

You can Play the Crossword Game in the Shoebox under Word Games.

Alan

Fun. I beat AL 356-147


Yeah, AL's not hard to beat, right now! I need to get him to plan out Premium Tiles a little better, to bulk up his scores a bit.

My Petit-Switch engine runs with nothing more than 16x16 pixel sprites, so if I'm going to create any form of Alien Deathmatch on there, I'm going to first have to redraw all the sprites.

Blandness has enveloped much of the site!
The complete Shoebox and Foldapuz collection are now added to the Archive, and that's how things are going to look, moving ahead.

In the coming weeks (hopefully!!) I'll be starting to add Browsercade games into the mix, too, so things should begin to get a bit more interesting to look at, but as I transition from making downloads to generating everything via Javascript, there's always going to be that bit where things get a bit .. .. Boring and web-looking!

My target for the first few Browsercade games will, then, be to try and make things as interesting to look at as I can, so that the icons and the screenshots, and even the Youtube clips, begin to look a bit more varied.

I'm now finding myself wondering if I should add the Petit Switch games into the archive, too..
Hmm..

Today's task is the same as the one long endless task that I did yesterday.
Yesterday was Foldapuz, today will be Shoebox.
Taking the screenshots, doing the logos and icons, uploading to the server, adding links, and hacking the database to change the date on the games.

Shouldn't take ALL DAY like it did yesterday, though, as I'm fairly sure I know what I'm doing.. .. Maybe!!

You might've noticed the top-bar of Recent Games is currently (slowly!) changing.

I've decided it's probably a good idea to start adding Foldapuz and Shoebox games in, with the intention of further adding Browsercade games to the archive once that's up and running.

Alan Suggests


There's always VirtualBox for a retro dev environment, although that doesn't make it easier to find the old versions of the dev kits.

v1.03 - Added Blackjack to the Card Game selection


Blackjack, Pontoon, 21. Call it what you will.
The aim is to reach as close as you can to 21, without going over.
Once you're done, AL will have a try, and whoever gets closest is the winner.

The first to reach three wins is declared the overall winner of the game.

You can Play Blackjack in the Card Games section of the Shoebox.

Crikey, RSKGames has already sent his Player Thoughts..
Guess I'd better hurry up and get those last few tweaks in place..

@RSKGames


I have never played this game before so it was fresh and fun for me. After 2 defeats and some reading of the rules I got the hang of it and was able to beat the AI few times.

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.
