What Have You Done? - July 2017


Ups

What did you get done this Month?
  • Remembered about these supposedly monthly posts!
  • Two iOS games, in the AppStore!
  • Three AGameAWeek games.
  • Further bugfixes to SoCoder2

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    Yeah, seems to have gone ok.
    I'm surprised I managed two iOS games in a month. But neither game does anything with GameCenter so I saved myself the hair-pulling exercise of having to contend with all that shite.

    Downs

    What didn't you get done?
  • Didn't do 4 AGameAWeek games!

    Why not?
    After spending pretty much all of May and June working tirelessly to get SoCoder2 up and running, my mind seemed to breath a sigh of relief and go into a shutdown mode at the start of July.
    I seem to be back in full swing again, now, though.

    Now

    What are you working on right now?
    I'm not sure what game to make next.
    I spent this morning working on a rotating box, but the plan I had in mind requires bucketloads of maths to get working, and it was running like arse as a result.
    (100 objects falling and colliding within a 32x32 rotating grid of boxes.)

    A task for another day, when my head's in a more math'y mood.

    How's that going?
    I think I'll move on to a different project.

    Next

    What's the plan for the next Month?
  • More iOS
  • More AGameAWeek
  • More SoCoder

    Incidentally, I added another theme (desktop) to the site, last week, but didn't bother to mention it!

    Ups

    What did you get done this Month?
  • Some massive clothing orders that'll keep us afloat for a couple more months.
  • Year-end accounts for 2016-17.
  • Got my head around getting stuff onto Steam.

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    More or less.

    Downs

    What didn't you get done?
  • World dominaton.
  • Bentley Continental.

    Why not?
    Because my ambitions are fucking silly, really.

    Now

    What are you working on right now?
    Monthly accounts and payroll - done!
    A spot of lunch.
    Then coding in Unity.
    Watching the hours tick down until Crime Solitaire 2 releases on Steam later today (currently 9 hours to go)

    How's that going?
    Nom. Om nom.
    *brrrp*


    Next

    What's the plan for the next Month?
  • Focus on Unity.
  • Rebrand clothing company.

    Ups

    Tinkered with my laptop, got a bit code down, been that long, constantly pressing F1 to check what parameters functions take!

    Downs

    Then work kicked in again, and ive dropped off, but I've got a good foundation going if I want to push it a bit more, week and a half time I've got a week off so will probably have a play then maybe... Hopefully!

    Now

    In a new build carpark in wokingham doing shit that was left

    Later

    Going to a casino for a few beers and a bit of three card poker

    Ups

    What did you get done this Month?
    Couple of blog posts and filling the github repositories with code.

    More exercising to get fitter.

    Watching a load of youtube video's on artificial intelligence.

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    I can not seem to train away the belly


    Downs

    What didn't you get done?

    The bigger game projects

    Doing an easy 1000 pushups on one day and the regular exercises. I seem to get that acid in the muscles after a few hours so need to be able to do a lot before that.


    Why not?
    No inspiration/idea for coding.

    Lack of protein? I started taking more eggwhites during exercise but I have not been seeing a real improvement.


    Now

    What are you working on right now?
    Thinking on how I would program larger 3d area's with mojo3d.

    Thinking on how I would create some sort of rts units logic.

    In a few hours I will start to setup another new laptop. There is no internet problem at the moment so it wil probably be a lot easier now.

    How's that going?
    Slow.


    Next

    What's the plan for the next Month?
    Make code for github and blog.
    Read the new procedural generation book and maybe create a dozen or more examples from it.
    Try to be able to lift 140pounds above my head. I have seen a 13 year old girl do it

    Ups

    What did you get done this Month?
  • Entered bitbitjam, failed to finish but it was fun anyway.
  • Learnt a lot more about assembly, feels like I got my level up in knowledge of it a bit more during the month
  • The usual webstuff for Refresh, lots of ebay and amazon api things.

    Did everything turn out as planned?
    Nope, I'm still sorting thing out on the NES game, which is fine, it's not had as much time dedicated to it as I'd like.

    Downs

    What didn't you get done?
  • The NES game

    Why not?
    Still learning more about how the NES operates and how to do the things I found fairly simple in C, in ASM. It's easy to get lost in the code, even with comments!

    Now

    What are you working on right now?
    Getting better from this bug so I can be back into work tomorrow.

    How's that going?
    Okay-ish, need to hope for a decent sleep pattern for tonight, not 4am eventual passing out!

    Next

    What's the plan for the next Month?
  • Finish super floofy sheepie
  • Walk into work more
  • Spend less money

    -=-=-
    Web / Game Dev, occasionally finishes off coding games also!

    Ups:

    Left old job
    took a couple of weeks of
    coding an asteroids game in Blitz3D - of course, why pick anything else?
    Starting new job monday, which is 54 miles closer to home
    Managed to cycle 2 mins faster over 14 miles - a new record despite tearing my ligaments 2 month ago (edit) shaved Another 2 miles of my 14 miler today, sweet.

    Downs

    Didn't do 4 AGameAWeek games - but my duck killing logic from Duck Invaders helped me with Asteroids blowing up

    Now

    Still Asteroids

    Hows it going

    Just about to invoke logic to make smaller asteroids when the big ones go boom

    Next

    Plan for next month

    Still be employed in new job by month end
    Walk the dog more often
    try cycling to work - the last place was too far away

    Happy coding!
