; Hello World


I'm currently knee deep in JNKPlat2018's menu system, gradually tweaking the buttons bit by bit.
So far, I've got a vague grid of "Pack" squares inscreen. Each pack has 4 levels, which light up as you complete them, so you eventually end up with a nice lit-up grid.
Until then, though, they're all nice and dark.

I've now been working on this very same menu for about a week.
I hate menus.
I keep procrastinating.

In the time since I started work on this menu, I've written and released Quadoban 2, rejigged a few bits of AGameAWeek.com's layout, and even fixed up my Pixelart to STL exporter.
Anything but work on a smegging menu!!

It would've been nice to have been making levels for the game, in all this time, but I need the menu to access the levels to edit the levels!
D'oh!
*sigh*
This game is getting longer and longer.
..
And I hate doing menus!!

; Pixelart Extrusion Update

Twitter user, and Tested.com regular @Jerware, asked me if I could upgrade my Pixelart tool to cope with multicoloured exporting, for the purpose of more modern multicoloured 3D printers.
I was happy to oblige, mostly because it meant not having to do that damn menu for a couple of days!
