Struggling to Glow
  15th February, 2020
Spent most of yesterday trying to figure out how best to get a glow effect in a Browsercade edition of NeonPlat.


The first, obvious, method was to use the browser's "Filter : Blur" effect, but watching my CPU/GPU usage shoot up to insane levels, I decided that was probably not the best way to go!
So, instead, I opted to try to use my sprite-slicer to generate pre-blurred blurry versions, and ..
Hmm.. That didn't go well.. At all!!

My maths is failing me terribly, lately.

Today I'll reattempt it with a fresh mindset, and then see about coding.. um.. the entire game!

Wish me luck.
