Every Friday, alarmingly tired.

Print


Very tired, lately.
I’m not sure whether it's the lousy wintery weather we've been having recently or if it's all the Framework Dev that's tiring me out.

Framework's coming along nicely, but I really need to start working on porting the engine to other systems. I did initial tests right at the start, but the engine's expanded immensely since then.
The audio stuff, for starters, is fairly complicated, and I’m not sure I can get Ogg files working on iOS. I'll definitely need to find some sort of workaround for that.
But that’s exactly why I set things up the way I did. Each target has a dedicated .cpp file to handle 'doing things', whilst the 'core' part handles mostly everything else.
Hopefully this all runs smoothly.
...given that I haven’t had many issues, so far, that's probably a bad sign.

Everything breaks.. and if it doesn’t break early, it's bound to be a massive implosion of breakage when it finally does!!
