Hey. How's it going?
I got the Referral Badge. Pretty kick-ass. I don't know who I referred, though.
I enrolled at the Game Programming University. I'm taking a course on Euphoria. (GPU
I also might be teaching what you could call an Advanced GML course there. By that, I mean it will use registered GML Functions to make games entirely in the Creation Code of a room. This will be for Advanced GM Users, programmers looking into GM, and people who just don't like clicking a lot. Hopefully, I'll be able to start teaching this soon.
That leads me to the title. If I teach this class, I am gonna need people that could make sprites, animations, and small songs. This is because, to my knowledge, I need to provide students with resources. If you are interested, please post here. If you want details, I will post them as soon as my curriculum is finished. Then, I'll have to make sure I get the course approved. If I don't, I'll most likely hold a class somewhere other than GPU.
Also, with this whole Cage Match thing going on:
I posted in the recent news post, as well as in the Cage Match topic, this:
The Cage Match in itself has become a mockery, however. Ever since DToD made it.
Frankly, I wouldn't see a problem had you have gone:
"columnsX, a game by a 64Digits admin, featuring several 64Digits members, made it into the GMC Cagematch. You might want to check it out; Hopefully this will increase 64Digits popularity."
But, you told people to vote for your own game. People called you out on it. So, this time, you told them to play them both, then vote for your own.
And as for not truely being a Cage Match Winner, it shouldn't even be counted as a Cage Match Contestant. Chiken personally showed his game to the previous loser, who then accepted Chiken's game. Chiken then chose ColumnsX because it supported 64Digits, and he is in it.
As much as I dislike the GMC, and like cheating the system, I don't think any of the recent Cage Match's have counted for shit. This has been unfair to Mr. Chubigans, and now FredFredrickson. Hopefully, JakeX, when you are out of the Cage Match, you don't choose a game for it's creator.
This brings me to the point of this week's Cage Match. Many members are complaining, because Evolites is past the 10 week deadline. Look at the people making these claims. They are the same people that voted for ColumsnX because they are "Loyal to 64Digits." Isn't that just the kettle calling the pot black?
Frankly, I agree with what I am saying. I think it's bullshit what has happened in the last 3 Cage Matches. It's completely and utterly ridiculous. And whenever I point this out, I get biased comments from both sides, often similar to examples I use. So, frankly, if I point out the fact that the Cage Matches are more rigged than the 2004 election, don't go
"WELL MY VOTE WASN'T BIASED!! I PLAYED THEM BOTH!!!"
Honestly, I don't give a rat's ass. If your vote wasn't biased, congratsulations. Go fuck a cow. If it was biased, you are just contributing to the pile of steaming horseshit that goes on behind the scenes at the Cage Matches. I pity everybody involved in the Cage Matches, nowadays.
Also, I just managed to salvage my iPod. I picked it up, and it was running Apple's OS, so I am replacing all the files with my backup.
So, that's my blog, I guess.
