I have a game!
It's written in <del>Munky</del> Monkey!
But... Am I ready to buy the language yet?

A few hours with Monkey today.
A game idea was planned (finally!) and attempted, but I realised I had rotation issues.
Tried and tried to get the rotate and scaling working together with numerous results.
One time the sprites were rotating away from their midpoints, another they were scaling all over the place, and on and on it went..

Sometimes, things that happen at the other side of the world, still make you change your habits.
AGameAWeek returns next week.

Focus.... Blog
6th March 2011
Another day pondering about the should/shouldn't monkey issue.
Another day wondering if I shouldn't just be writing a game..
I should be focusing on the important bits, but instead, my minds contemplating what could be.
We're in March.

Oh, Mark.. What have you done!
I was happily coding away at AGameAWeek, and now I'm stuck in this odd Will I/Won't I scenario, unsure as to what to do next..
I spent a few hours playing with Monkey again, Yesterday, and am still unsure which is the better path.
Monkey has no recolouring for sprites. That's a pretty big deal, and is a bit of a biggy when your onscreen text is sprites. No sprite colors means one text color.
Even my Tandy TRS 80 could do more than one text c...

I've gone nearly a whole week without posting anything.
That's not like me at all!
This week was my birthday, and although that day was nice and quiet, the rest of the week's been utter chaos, with 110 different things to be done..
No matter..

I don't usually do Friday updates, but today, day two of working on this game, I got things looking quite nice.
Figured I might as well post about it.
No gameplay (collision detection/death/scores/etc) yet, but I got a nice simple looking engine going, as far as scrolling, base enemy and shooting's concerned.
The current enemy are Base enemy. They sit on the scrolling landscape, and shoot at you.

Forget Cassette 50, that's gone, bubye now!
4 rubbish semi-planned games is far too much garbage for one coder to take.
Let's instead return to our semi-rubbish unplanned games. They worked better!

This week I remade Fantasy Center.
It didn't turn out well, I lost heart, and I have now, in fact, lost faith in the whole Cassette 50 project.
All these games really are a big bag of crap!

You know what they say. If one PC break down, they all decide to do it simultaneously.
That's exactly what happened this week.
A PC at work literally fried last week. Power supply and motherboard were both dead dead, and the guy at work ended up having to buy a new laptop.
Having spent most of the week reinstalling and organising files, I got through to friday hoping to do my AGameAWeek.

Friday morning, bright and early, ready to tackle this week's game.
A restart later, the password entry pops up on Windows, and I'm ready to tackle this week's game.

Back at school I used to randomly write thoughts into my jotter. Not school-based stuff, of course. I was an idea-filled coder, back then!
Lately, the ideas are few and far between, as anyone who's been following AGameAWeek lately has noticed.
My "Waffle" was general thoughts about gui layouts, game thoughts, and then anything else that randomly appeared along the way.
I'm starting to think that it might be a good idea to restart that old habit.

Note : PlayMyCode is no longer available
A slight change this week.
I was planning to do AGameAWeek as usual, but was somewhat thrown off course by a request to make games, instead!

Yesterday, Rob from RetroRemakes asked if he could do a spritesheet for Spike Dislike.
After a lot of back and forth, I decided to write a how-to, so any future requests could go a little bit smoother!
Here's some info on how to make 'em, alongside a bunch of all-important rules.

A nice slow paced shooter this week.
Poor old CPC Basic couldn't really handle bullet-hell type games.
Well, ok, maybe it could if you really really tried, and came up with a scrolling ascii grid of bullets, but for the most part it just wasn't happening.
Instead, Cassette 50 creators had to rely on other ideas. Like trying to kill you with your own desire to kill!!

Since I'm going to be doing Cassette 50 for a while, we're not going to be needing the regular Suggestion Box for a while.
As a kind of replacement for those, then, I'll be thinking ahead, and wondering about the "larger" projects.
Obviously one of the new ones is going to be a new Platdude game.

How the smeg did I screw up the counting, last week?! I mean, REALLY!! I have a Google Spreadsheet that's supposed to be counting all this!
Spreadsheet reorganised, and counting fixed.
Silly thing..

OK, I've gone through all the CPC Cassette, and here's the ones that initially jumped out as being at least vaguely redoable.
|update| Old Google Spreadsheet doesn't seem to work.. |update|
Next up, I'm going to start grabbing other editions, and going through them.
Well, I say next up, I've gotta make this week's first, though!
.. I'll go do that!
