Spent a few hours, yesterday, getting a very basic looking car to drive around a very basic looking grassland. (and/or, blue space with stars in it, acting like a flat driveable area!)

Yesterday was spent making an Pixel/Sprite doodling thing for Petit Switch.
With that, JMTrackr and the default audio files, I'm fairly sure I can now get a decent number of games up and running.

The default pixel-sprite editor for PetitSwitch
Scroll around the left-side (full spritesheet) with the left thumbstick, draw in the right hand "zoomed" view (you can zoom in further) with touchscreen or mouse.
Controls for colours, but the palette doesn't save. .. Booo!
Plenty of twiddly knobs and buttons, barely any of which I have the faintest idea what they're doing.
A to plot, B to pick colour.. .. Except..
The dpad doesn't move the cursor.. In fact, NOTHING moves the cursor.
Instead, you're stick with Mouse Control to do everything.
Not even copy+paste!?!

Drawing outside of the boundary of the zoomed in region (eg, mis-clicking the dodgy palette boxes) will randomly splodge a pixel in any area outside of that region.
You have limited zoom options, but at no point can you zoom directly into a single sprite.. It's always slightly too large, or slightly too small, and 1 single sprite never quite fits into the editor's viewport.
Scrolling also occurs based on the size of that viewport, so trying to edit one sprite, then move to the next, is damn near impossible.
Also, seriously, no thick gridlines at 16 to help guide you to drawing within the sprite limits!?!

Really, all kinds of messy, and ..
Nah..

Not gonna be happy using that.

..
So, um.. You can probably guess what I spent most of today doing.

I need to organise things a little better.

As fun as it is, churning out the PetitGames, the Shoebox is getting ignored.
And as nice as it is, piling on the Shoebox Games, the Foldapuz site's being forgotten..
And as much as I want to get Foldapuz games done...
..
I haven't done AGameAWeek in bloomin ages!!!

I think I need to make myself a proper schedule, and ... try to stick to it!

Guide Flappy between the two sides of the screen, landing on the platforms inbetween.

1. Finish off Flappadiddle on PetitSwitch
2. Finish off Hangman on Shoebox
3. Consider that combining things into one has gone so well on Shoebox that it might be a good idea to start doing that with my PetitSwitch games.
4. Consider that I should probably also do that with AGameAWeek "proper"
5. Wonder how that's going to impact my lovely "500,000 games" list.
6. Goto 3

We all know what happens if I leave a game for a week..
I find it very hard to get myself back into the swing of things.
I need something a little more immediate to pop into the Shoebox, because.. at this rate.. it'll be mid July before The Quest is ready!!

"Oh, I know," says my silly head, "what about Hangman?"

I didn't get much done, yesterday, beyond the finishing up of the week's ALChoon.

So, I have a PetitSwitch game to work on, and a Shoebox game to keep me going.

Today I have to post the weekly SoCoder newsletter, the template for which has been mostly abandoned all week, with me concentrating on PetitSwitch, and then I also need to post this week's ALChoon, too.

.. Today's going to be "one of those" days...
