I Suppose I Should...
10th July 2021  
One particular thing is currently missing from the AGameAWeek website.

JSE Games..


I've not yet started to pop them up onto the Archive, and given that "Futrino Emissions" is going to be one of the first "Proper" games written in the language, I guess now's as good a time as any to start working towards that goal.

As far as posting code directly into the bloggy parts of the site is workable, that doesn't really go very well for the Game Archive.
If I want the "Download/Play" buttons to actually DO anything, I'm going to have to add some kind of shortcut in-between this site, and the GotoJSE site, whereby it grabs code from the archive and transfers it across.

I could, of course, add the code directly into the archive, like I do with the blogs, but the only way the current GotoJSE button works, is if all the code is available for it to grab.
If I did that in the archive, and you did a search that came up with a list of 10 games, then your browser would have to download the code for all 10 games, even if you weren't going to play any of them.

Nope. Not good enough. I definitely need the in-betweener.
I'm currently thinking I could use the "Play Disk" to store ALL the games, and then have the link say "Grab the game from the Play Disk", then have the GotoJSE site recognise that and load up the appropriate script.
.. I *think* that would work..?

I'll have to experiment, and see what I can come up with.
