Phantasar Chronicles

22nd January 2020

Aside from a coder, I am also a fantasy novel writer.
I do write in my native language, which happens to be Dutch, but I did a quick translation of a chapter I wrote, and I'll share it with you...
please note, errors can still be there, and if I can *snip*

''Two down, four to go''... I guess, it's a typical thing for Cleese to say... (Well, Terry was the second to pass, as Graham Chapman was the first).
I am a bit sad.... Monty Python was a great i*snip*

Alright.... If you are a bit wondering about the cast of this game [url=https://tricky.gamejolt.io/dyrt_net/]here they are[/url]. The playable characters and some of the most prominent characters the ''heroes'' will meet during their quest. ;)

New Year Resolutions - 2020

2nd January 2020

Well aside from my game project I had an experimental programming language (a REAL language as my NIL language is just an extension to Lua), which never satisfied me... But I think I've seen the light in a few things, so I am planning to make it a new *snip*

The menu is (like the rest of the game btw) entirely mouse controlled. I like quick interfaces which you can use *snip*

Somehow a part of my past died with her... I always loved the music by Roxette...

RIP - Rutger Hauer

10th December 2019

I think it comes to no surprise that the Dutch media really went into the deep of Hauer's death, since he was Dutch after all.
I have seen him in his first role of ''Floris'' which was a children's series for the Dutch TV (and thus spoken *snip*

RIP : Caroll Spinney (Big Bird/Oscar)

8th December 2019

In the Dutch version of Sesame Street they removed Big Bird and replaced him with Pino, not to mention the Dutch version was redubbed (as usual for children's shows). I however do remember Big Bird singing ''It's not easy being green'' on J*snip*

QOTD : Time Sucking Games

8th December 2019

For me that would likely be World of Warcraft, although I had a load of friends during my time on the WoW servers so I do not consider my time there as ''wasted''...
But what I hated is that it took my time away from other games I liked.

Systematic solving a problem

''Just hide it and make a run for it''?

Yeah, that's mostly the easiest way to go, eh?

Double ''Dutch''...? Then why didn't they spell the flavor: Komkommer & Watermeloen? :P

I shall be honest, I drew this version myself, but I was not the one who made up the original joke which I received in Dutch and I merely redrew and translated it*snip*

Youtube TOS and COPPA

2nd December 2019

Now I'm tempted to install an add-blocked just to MOCK YouTube....
Well I was wondering how the amount of server space for all those videos was being paid for, so I guess Google was quite in a fix here.

But indeed, when they start deleting all thos*snip*

MacBook Pro 16''

14th November 2019

''still doesn't have a numpad'', and to play the devil's advocate... how much does that make it different from a non-apple laptop? I've never seen a laptop with a numpad in my entire life, to be honest. Not even very extremely expensive*snip*

Coding in NIL

11th November 2019

In order to elaborate a bit more on things NIL can do, which Lua can't.... Lua has no constant support.... Well, neither has NIL, but NIL does offer something in return, so that way, I can get rid of ''magic numbers''.

Azure Devops

11th November 2019

Unfortunately all my BlitzMax projects are now broken because the BMax compiler no longer works for me and a few BlitzMax project that always worked fast now have FPS issues...
In other words, Microsoft is not alone there... It appears all developer tool *snip*

Azure Devops

11th November 2019

I have a project for my own use, but which may appear on github nevertheless when it's done...
It's just a program that can help me on my Game Development, but is not part of the game itself... You follow? ;)

As the repository is therefore onl*snip*

Word of the Week : Disable

11th November 2019

Where money flows it causes to disable
This things people must do, they are suddenly unable
The money that wins, from what is right

No, I don't wanna make this political, it's just a silly rhyme

Happy Birthday - Sesame Street

11th November 2019

And then a sad news related to Sesame Street. In the Netherlands we had aside from Dutch redubbed videos of Ernie & Bert, and loads of stuff also a part that was only made for Dutch kids (that was with permission of the US Producers)... An actress who *snip*

AutoIncorrect

7th November 2019

You know what's nasty? Since I am biligual and have often have to switch between two languages, my autocorrect often tries to correct to the wrong language... It once lead to a very polite message being turned into something really perverted.... But mo*snip*
