It didn’t! How about this screenshot of Mt Jujube’s exterior, art by Hyptosis!
Things I’ve done in the last week for [SullyRpg.com](link url)
Oh, and Gruedorf’s back. 2021 Forum Lyfe!!!1
This week’s update is a little less spectacular. I’ve done a bit, but I’m going to try and keep my GRUEDORFING to Sully-only for the time being.
Things I’ve done:
Did you know you can update for gruedorf MORE REGULARLY than once every 7 days?!
It’s true. Every valid entry just resets the counter to seven days from itself!
…anyways, here’s today’s valid entry!
I’ve worked on the Dungeon of Love’s Dance Studio setting up a lot of polish before the penultimate encounter.
** Probably more polish than is needed but whatever
I’ve also reworked the entire logging system so instead of just printing debug statements caveman-style to the console I can send them AAaaanywhere. (But for now they’re just going to the console.)
** Also I named this Logger “CaptainsLog()”. Because of the whole marine theme.
…see you within the next seven days!
Today’s update (slightly late, I got plenty done in the past seven days, I just had Keto Superfog Brain last night…)
The post-Big-Daddy-Bubba-Fight scene has it’s first pass! This is one of my favorite scenes in the game, Tons of editing and scripting need to be done to make it more dynamic than 300 raw lines of exposition, but progress is progress!
(Weird formatting note: Bubba’s text needs two spaces at the front of line 1 of any box and one space at the front of line 3 of any box to avoid the overwhelming power of his hat and shawl.)
I replaced hardcoded Portrait definitions with data-driven ones that were actively reloaded while in debug mode upon map reload!
And that’s it for Sully Stuff that I can talk about!
A week late and a weak post, but I got SOME work done:
Still plodding through the input menu stuff; just got a new xbox controller so I can test the XNA builtins and Overkill pointed me at some more generic controller code that’ll just, you know, work with generic gamepads?
Otherwise I’ve got it so bound keys now legitimately unbind! Yay! Now I need to make sure you can’t ever unbind the last keyboard binding for something, and… do the gamepad unbinding, and binding for both (have the if/else’s set up for it all, but it’s a lot of edge cases I… need to add more if/elses for!)
Oh and then I need to add loading and saving of all of this.
@bengrue Update: I think I fixed the website in the hackiest way possible.
I neither know why nodebb stopped serving the its critical js/css files, nor do I particularly care after spending way too long fixing them by stapling them into place.
Build automation tasks continue!
Did you know that github no longer provides free branch protection for private repos? It’s true!
Just $44/year for everyone who’s a collaborator if you want this useful feature!
…so if you got an email saying you were disconnected from one of my projects this week: I still love you.
Okay, okay, okay. I’ve been losing Gruedorf since the end of August. I promise I’ve been busy though:
I mean, October was a little light but LOOK at all those COMMITS!
Anyways, can’t talk about all that. Let’s see, what have I done?
Since the last update I’ve:
Wow, did you know there’s tons of stuff to game making that ISNT making games? I hate it!
Out of professional courtesy I won’t post WIPs of the marketing art. It’ll be done soon! :3
In the last two weeks I’ve:
What have I been doing lately?
Making a custom C++ UI system for the current game project!
Basically bringing the concepts of Sully’s C#-based McGrender engine that Ustor and I have developed over the years and making it work in a C++ SDL2 context.
It’s going surprisingly well, but I’m annoyed I’ll have to make a drop down menu >: (
This week in Things I Can Talk About:
…I made a webapp for tracking whose turn it is for cleaning the litterbox in my house?
Look, I’m still playing catchup on tasks from all the setbacks from the server work and housework. I’m just about getting done with professional work and games work may continue apace shortly.
AND MOST OF THAT IS SECRET STILL
