Every Friday, Grumbling and Whinging about things.

Over on SyntaxBomb, the owner of BlitzCoder.org took offence at my having called him a moron for having bought a BlitzCoder domain and then dumping a generic forum script onto it.
There’s been a fair amount of back and forth, between the SoCoder and SyntaxBomb topics.

I’m slightly worried that this user doesn’t understand what BlitzCoder actually was, because nothing he's done to the site so far suggests that.
Instead, he seems to be content with replicating BlitzBasic/BlitzMax Official site, and whilst that's admirable, it isn’t what 'BlitzCoder' was, and it's a shame to see the name used for 'generic forum script'
IMO it deserves much better.

I’m not saying the SoCoder script is exactly what's needed, since it's stuck very much to the late-90s vibe that it was based on.
It would be great to see a new 'powerful' site exist under the BlitzCoder name. But a plain forum isn’t going to do that.

It’s important to get it right, and honour Krylar's site properly.

Make something that BlitzCoders would be proud of.

I hope that, some day in the near future, I can look back at my rants as nothing more than me being silly and the rants as unnecessary.

But it has to be right.

; C64 ASCII Maze

Pakz replicates the old C64 ASCII maze using Monkey!
socoder.net/?Snippet=63569

; Linear Interpolation

Pakz also does some maths, and makes a nice function that takes 2 values, and returns a value at x-percentage between the two.
Handy for all manner of numerical things.

; Zero Budget Marketing

TheRevillsGames finds a nice video that talks all about marketing and getting your game seen by the biggest audience, without spending a bloomin' fortune trying to do it.

; J Rants

People called James seem to get ranty quite often!!
Here’s Jim Sterling having a legitimate whinge about LootBoxes in Games.

SoOffTopic


; Another Copy Of...

What songs do you have the most copies of?
Or, if you’re like GfK, what entire albums do you have the most copies of?
socoder.net/?Topic=6567

; Twitter Replacement

RSKGames finds a new social network, Mastodon, which is apparently 'Twitter for GameDevs'
I kinda like Twitter because it's 'for everyone'. I’m not sure I want to cut off potential players.
Hmmm.

Crazy old man sits in the corner of the forum, making random posts, and answering the voices in his head!
