Every Thursday, Starting another game.


Hello World

Uhoh, haven't started a SmileBASIC game for Friday.
I did have a plan in mind.
I've been loving that daily Calendar puzzle thing, with the blocks that slot into the grid to show today's date.
Bought it from DragonFjord, and it's been keeping my puzzle mind active since September.
I thought it'd be nice to have a similar puzzle on the Switch, so have had it in mind to quickly make a similar thing, for most of the week.
About an hour ago, I started my "how to code it" thinking and ..
.. How the hell am I going to do the controls for that, given most people will be using a standard controller?
Oh, bugger..

So I guess I don't actually have a plan for this week, then, and I suppose that means I have to now scramble together something entirely different within *checks watch* oooh, about 36 hours or so.



Realtime JavaScript Blitz-alike

Realtime pops on over to tell us about a Blitz-like command set he's making in Javascript.
It's not interpreted like how JSE is, so it's much faster than that could ever hope to do.
If you're after a nice and easy way to wrangle the modern dev-style, then this might do the job.
Let Realtime know your thoughts, and just how much you'd love to see it expanded.

MicroStudio 3D

I'm not entirely sure when MicroStudio got a 3D upgrade, but..
MicroStudio's had a 3D upgrade, and can now do things like cars wot drive, and guns wot shoot and .. um. whatever else it is that modern developers do with that mystical 3D technology.


Virus Checker

What's the 2022 virus scanner of choice?
Are you using anything beyond Windows Defender?
What tips can you offer, on keeping your system running like a happy little lemming?
