I got an item from ti3 that sold instantly when I put it up...I think I could have at least doubled the price :(

Doesn't matter, bought keys

steam has a cap of 500$ in your steam wallet at a time, otherwise I would have sold this set too http://dota2.gamepedia.com/The_Alpine_Stalker's_Set (each piece is worth like 300-400$ right now, so free games forever i guess, I need to spend whats in my wallet first though)

That was amazing. Outstanding background art, animation and sound. I really felt for the old man as it went on, but I feel worst for the dog at the end.

Took a break from making my engine to practice my drum'n'bass skillllz:
https://soundcloud.com/stereoglyph/dnb-18-wip/s-WMi0m

Hopefully my engine will soooon be ready. One last big step is to get GUI hooks in there, otherwise I'm almost done script loading+execution which will control the whole flow of the game. Exciiitiiiing.

I've been pretty damn busy, I gotta say.
I'm still running that D&D campaign, which now meets on a weekly basis. The production quality is slowly improving as I start making fancier things and actually start putting together a real schedule and format.
I've created a small blog that focuses on PC gaming news, that's actually been going surprisingly well.
I has a twitter which I use on occasion to shout out nonsensical things.
I got an old Youtube account back with a thousand and a half video views, i'm hoping to take some of that weight and throw it in the general direction of PC let's plays after I get the motherboard in for my new-ish hex-core processor.
I started a Facebook page for egg82 (can you guess the URL?) to help centralize all of the other stuff I have - it's really just going to be used for formatted announcements, which is nice considering i'm doing all of the above.
I created an ad campaign for the Facebook page, which i'm keeping tabs on. I'm getting about what i'm expecting, which isn't a bad thing entirely.
On top of that, i've got college classes which are DUMPING homework on me.
Oh, and I found a girl that wants to have coffee with me :D

None of it's bad, it's just a heck of a lot to keep track of on a daily basis o.o

Also, to MSG:

Sureeeeee.

I just realized that no one will ever see the jokes and references in my strings that don't go into textfields. It's an inside joke where I'm the only one who will ever know of its existence.

I know a few people who watched Pororo to get basic spoken Korean down. Do you know if there's a Japanese equivalent that would work in a similar way?

Make your textfields not selectable. And it would be nice if the inventory looped, like pressing q on the first item makes it go to the last one.

good suggestion, I was also going to make items selectable right from the inventory pop up menu.

The crackling is kinda loud. There should be a "you lose" audio track.

I can walk well past the boundaries on this map. I come from below, and that portal works fine. But to the right and up, I can go on for a while (didn't hold it down for too long).

I am going to be expanding on those areas later, there will be new maps so they just don't exist yet.

Warning: Content below is mostly nonsense, read only if you have nothing better to do.

Still don't get this whole stage business, seems fine for a couple of things I can think of off the top of my head but I'm wondering how I would move my tile based platformer over, I guess I wouldn't? which feels weird, right now I have the level builder built into the game so I can pause and move stuff around, I'm wondering how I could keep that functionality and also use the stage to set up the levels, it seems like it would be too convoluted, I'd either have to forgo the stage and try my best to 1:1 recreate my game as is, which then seems kind of like a waste in a way (though don't get me wrong I see the benefits) OR I would have to forgo the in game editor and use the stage to build levels which I suppose isn't that bad. Hnnnng I start thinking about all this stuff and just end up forgetting about Unity altogether, which is a damn shame cause it feels like I'm missing out.

Is the flash export out btw?

Ugh that was a gross amount of wishy washy rambling.

the flash export works for the people who have purchased it, but it is no longer supported/available.
Using the stage is basically the same as the flash one but in a 3d space (if doing 2d, its just 3d but percieved on a 2d place but you can still move objects around in a 3d place (in editor and what not). i dont see why you couldnt just forgo the unity editor and import stuff from the library.

Yeah the flash export is deprecated. They are trying to compete instead with their own plugin. In terms of the stage/editor, you can just create your prefabs in code which are kind of like MovieClips in the library.

My biggest gripe is being forced into uses code components. I've heard people say that you can just put code onto the camera as your entry point, and then your project can live in code from there on out. There are other things that bother me too such as the global/static nature of a lot of the methods which give you access to other prefabs, or their code components. It seems sloppy to me, but I am probably just not used to it.

I feel really stupid right now.

So I was browsing the love forums, looking at some old threads, and I kept seeing this guy who had the SAME avatar as mike! And I was all "What are the odds!" and I eventually read the username, which had "mike" in it, and I then went "Same avatar, AND same name!!! What the oooooodds!"

And then I facepalmed.

In other news, I was planning to take a year before college to focus on and finish Concerned Joe, buuuut in Egypt if you aren't in college by 18 you automatically get drafted to the military. I already applied to a local university here but I need to figure out how to not attend and not get expelled D:
