Via the project system, though I feel if you're coming here to ask that question you're doing a lot of things wrong.

What've we all been doing this week in terms of games? Specifically playing, but developing works as well.

For me, it's mostly been LoL and a surprise contender for the rest of whatever time I have left, Blacklight: Retribution - honestly i'm not a fan of the FPS genre (actually, I really dislike it) but I've had this multiplayer FPS itch lately that BLR seems to scratch quite nicely.

Friend fixed/updated one of the basic systems of our game, so it scrolls infinitely.
Now we need multithreading since the thing my friend was working on is already pumping the game at around 38 FPS on my computer (but in Debug mode, Release goes about double).

Optimization is going to be a biznatch. But the good thing is that most of the base features are implemented, except for AI and particles. Main thing now is going to be content hopefully...(Plant generation etc.)

Replaying Fez on my Macbook (originally played it on 360, I'll probably get it on PS3/4 too) and playing Ni No Kuni to practice muh Japanese (got that JLPT next month).

Also trying to learn how to make puzzles, the mobile game I'm working on is probably my first time even trying to do anything puzzly so it's awkward but there's also a music aspect so thats fun at least. I've probably spent most of my time dicking around with the menu screen, tap areas, subtle(read: unnoticeable) effects, colour palettes, swipe/transition speeds etc just generally getting caught up in everything except the game. Also trying to make a perfectly usable editor for a phone screen is a pain, I usually map things to keys all over the place, it's getting there though.

Also I cooked my first steak (sirloin) at a friends house the other day, it was probably the best steak I've ever had. If I had all the money in the world I'd just cook steak everyday.

Indicating what direction to swipe to go left or right is genuinely confusing though, I'm not ashamed of the amount of time I've spent on this.

More RPG, but nothing very interesting there. I made a working(!) level editor for a platformer here. Still a bit unsure how I want the temperature mechanic to work. Get too cold and you die seems fine, but I mean hallucinations or hypothermia stuff. And idk how big the game should be.

Last weekend I binged out on the new LOZ game for 3DS. It's really good. Probably my game of the year if not top 3.

I've been hacking on a side-project of mine that I am building with a few friends. Not much to show yet, but check it out.

He's a former accountant of mine. He helped me get a few deductions on my taxes in 2008 which saved me over 47 dollars. He's my hero, and every morning I wake up and I ask myself, "Am I doing what Mr. Doresman would do today ?". If the answer is no, I hit snooze and go back to sleep.

Actually it's just a random image I found online and I thought the guy looked really funny

After reading your profile I figured out what I've been missing in my room is a binary print bed sheet. It's not even a want at this point, it's a need.

@InnerMike Do you have a collection of everything I say in image format?

Didn't touch FD or dota today...what a worthless day. Came home for break, so travel + not having my gaming setup caused that.

"The Reg Lounge... He's dead, Jim."

'nother day, 'nother strangely-made dollar (somehow I keep making these on a single terrible Flash video)
also finally went to get some clothes, I had one pair of jeans and three pairs of underwear left. I have no idea where my underwear went, though I do believe they've found someone else's balls to comfort.

Aaaat any rate it's been a strange couple of days because Turkeys but i'll hopefully be getting back on schedule tomorrow with more content for my channel and more work on the Concerned Joe launcher. I'm almost done with the launcher, guys, I swear D: - I just way-overcomplicated it like I usually do with programming things. Should have some fancy features if that makes up for it.

OH I almost forgot to mention (again) I actually submitted my first AS3 game to the portal a little while back. Made it through with some bumps and bruises, but it made it through. Have a look?

Slide us a copy of the launcher so we don't have to pay omar.

I can't tell if I'm being very productive. I don't have my mechanical keyboard, so typing isn't as fun and I can't dota. I don't have my second monitor, so distractions are a bigger deal. My chair is broken, so I can't be comfortable while coding. I got started with saving game data (mainly just implementing IExternalizable), but that hasn't been much.

my keyboard has cherry blues, so typing is extremely annoying to everyone nearby which is also fun :D

With the system they have, getting a free copy of the launcher won't really get you anything xD
So, yeah. You COULD pirate the game, but no (otherwise free) updates if you do D:

@4urentertainment @3D-xelu I see how it is. For all my future games, I'm gonna check for ng username. If it finds yours, the game will stop and you won't be able to play it until you pay me.

D: I heard about this once or twice but was never able to reproduce it or figure out what was causing it. To be fair, the programming for it is shite compared to what I should have done but I didn't think it was going to be as complex as it turned out to be in the end (after everyone's suggestions)

Just press the opposite direction you're going and things fuck up. That's probably how to reproduce

ooooooohhhhhhhh fuuuuuuck. I used key down events instead of key up. I'll just get it to check the last value in the vector and see if it's the same key.

I actually have an acceptable answer to that this time: Because I felt like it :P
I already had a ton of pre-made classes for things I did in that game, but I just felt like making new ones. And I was too lazy to go hunting or the other classes. Yeah, my logic's a bit warped :3

The Launcher! EET LIIIIIIIIVES!

also i'm still fixing Snake. By which I mean I looked for the project for half a second in the file browser and gave up because a YouTube video showed up in my sub box. I'll get 'round to it in a few, after this video and most likely some sleep.

Sleep is the biggest waste of time humanity can ever commit. How much time you could have spent working on amazing, ambitious projects, but instead wasted on worthless sleep? How can you even think about sleeping, when you have so many things unfinished, and yet so many plans?

I personally, have not deserved sleep. I try to resist it until I collapse.
Then I get bad marks at university...
But at least the projects are going somewhere, and at a much faster pace than normal.

I wrote out like 400 words but I figured I should just simplify to one question

Do you genuinely think you'll make adequate use of all the time you actually will have awake in your life?
