We should have weekly "Watcha doing?" sessions...

Study study studying for exams this week.

Once this hell week is over, I'm gonna find people to work on this game with. Final Fantasy Tactics series was 300 hours of my life back in the day, so this idea will pay some tribute to that. I have a list of stuff to work on when I finally have free time (current unit indicator, confirmation boxes before an attack is launched, list of attacks to choose from, hp and whatnot, etc), so there's no need to bring up that kind of stuff.

or the crappy UI...shut up >:(

Mouse for most things, first guy is a mage kinda character, 2nd one is an archer. Left and right rotate the view. B might (?) still reset your turn (equivalent of asking "Are you sure?" after a movement finishes).

Oh geez...I have exams until May 22nd...
This will be total hell for sure, since I don't think I'm too prepared, and yet I'm still procrastinating :/
Fuck me...

Plus I gotta finish one last freelance job real quick...

So I have come to a point where by having finished high school without following into uni studies, I find myself without any ways of stimulating myself intellectually or having worthwhile conversations away from computers. At the same time, I also lost contact with all my internet friends from my programming days. The only person I still talk to from at least a couple years ago is someone I used to play WoW with ... So I find myself trying to argue hardcore (by normal society standards) about physics and math on my starcraft team chat with people who have no clue what they're talking about, and having faith in underage starcraft players for their intellectual potential so that I may appreciate talking to them and maybe think about collaborating with them on something one day.

What I'm trying to say is ... any of you nerds wanna hang out?

Grats to Bryce for making it, not only on the frontpage, but on the featured content thingy. Not many people hold that distinction so great job!

Holy SHIT

Well this is an epic surprise :D

Also Ludum Dare results in 2 days and 13 hours, so good luck everyone!

Also, this looks nice:

I was thinking today that it's really lame that newgrounds has flash ads on the pages where it displays gamaes..

We work really on our games ot trim down performance, and flash's memory and CPU usage is cumulative. That is.. if you have multiple flash runtimes going then they are cumulatively slowing each other down. It strikes me as really disrespectful to the work and to the developers who work so hard to make a good experience for the end-user. What not just use image ads on the game pages?

As far as I'm aware, almost all Flash game websites have Flash ads next to their content; most have more than Newgrounds. Plus, I think Newgrounds gives the developers a cut of the revenue from these ads. Furthermore, I could be wrong but dedicated image ad spaces are probably worth less and it may be more difficult to find an image ad service provider. Besides, at least Newgrounds has the "Lights" and "Launch Popup"options if the user experiences slowdown.

A lot of speculation and conjunctive adverbs in this post

Doomsday-One, working on stuff better than preloaders. Marginally.

Is it no longer possible to remove Flash submissions? I dug all over my project panels and read through the wiki but I didn't see anything.

Gratz to you LD peoples. Very nice, indeed.

Textfield methods + RegExp + Dictionary = amazed me. The user clicks part of a textfield, the text on that line goes through a few replace() with RegExps yanking spaces and return characters out, and the dictionary uses that as a key. I'd say 1 line is much more elegant than 100+ if else.

So today I am working on my A* as3 API. I am trying to figure out a way to make it faster. I ended up pushing a new commit which has a couple new features. https://github.com/prettymuchbryce/EasyStarAS3

I am working on making the sorting faster using a priority queue. :D

That's a pretty good idea. Do you plan on expanding the API to handle other search algorithms as well?

I was thinking about it. If so I would probably do Dijkstra next.

I am developing this priorityQueue to be APIish too. So it can take any type of object and you can give it the variable that you want to sort on. The thing is... I wonder if the build in sortOn method in array will be faster no matter what, because it is native. I was reading about someone who made a quicksort method that ended up being faster than the native sortOn.. so I don't think it's impossible. I will probably do some tests to find out, but theres no way to know what kind of sorting algorithm is going on under the hood of sortOn.

Right now I'm basically using it for regression to make sure I understand what I'm doing, but my ultimate goal is to use them to analyze music and learn rhythmic patterns.
