Posted on June 06, 2017 at 14:45
Yes, I have decided to do a Patreon just because people kept saying I need one. Anyway, I only hope this comes out great because I spent more time on the computer, doing game development experiments and game making. I hope people would enjoy it!
I will tend to do both video recordings and written blogs on my progress.
Feel free to check them out...
Its recently new so dont expect anything in the next 24 hours... (or maybe, who knows)
A dream journal
Posted on June 03, 2017 at 10:12
Ever had dreams before? If you are those kind who often do, have you ever witness one so bizarre that it was too amazing to forget? Most likely lot of people forget their dreams but I have a ton I written because they were truly remarkable to believe they occur in my mind. Even though it can be weird or just crazy as hell... but still I'm gonna share my dreams here and if you have any, share them too.
Last night I had a dream that I was at a beach for scuba diving and there were lots of people. I was in the water, swimming, minding my own business when suddenly I spotted a huge mansion on a small cliff near the sea. I had to swim all the way there to see what it was. I entered the mansion from a hole on a wall, got up the staircases to the main lobby and found random people walking around. Then I met up with CrazyGuyGames in person, we were wondering where we are and decided to split up to investigate the place but before we did, we went down a slope and up into a huge ball room with many people and a huge bright chandelier hanging up on the ceiling. The place kinda look like a mall. From there we split up and while searching around, I met a strange little boy who pointed at our reflection on one of the walls. He says that its an actual portal to the picture world. I didn't believe him at first but then he showed me a canvas that was on the floor and showed how the image of a flower suddenly disappears. He says by letting your mind drain into the image, your body is transcended into the pictorial world. He also says that if we enter that world, our genders would change. After that talk we had, he tried pushing me into our reflection, saying we have to go in. I told him strictly no, but he continues to insist; its for the sake of humanity. I tried getting away from him but he kept following me everywhere I go. I notice also that some of the reflection of the people that were wandering around has that change as well, dont know why. Anyway, my dream ended at some point in that moment. Can't tell what happened next.
I was flying around at my old highschool, until I realize some rumors (don't know how though) about a 5th floor at my school that was never set foot by anyone because it was forbidden and very secret. So I decided to fly up there. Once I descended on the 5th floor, it was veeery small, short hallway and there was a girl in a white dress crouched down on one end of the hallway. On the other end of the hallway, there was a door (gate like door) to some room. I went to check whats in the room. I peeked in and saw it was a veeery small room with a soccer ball inside. When I entered to check the soccerball, the girl from earlier locked me in the room. a few seconds later she unlocked the gate and entered with a pepper jar. She started to pour pepper on the soccer ball and then she gave me the pepper jar and said to me:-"You better start eating that soccerball"I was very confused and replied:-"Why?"She then answered me back:-"Because Bubba is going to eat you."From there I got a little scared and asked again:-"Who's Bubba?"But then she starts laughing hysterically as she exits the room. I exited too and I looked out of the school from the hallway and then I looked back at her and said:-"Bubba can't eat me because I can fly"She looks at me again and says:-"Oh really?! Proove it!"So flew out from the hallway, around the school (somehow i had difficulty flying around). And then I landed back at the hallway but somehow, the whole floor in the hallway was filled with pebbles like in those rivers. Then saw one big rock of a size of a football with white spots. This rock started to move and the girl then said:-"Here comes Bubba"Thats when the rock grew a mouth with sharp teeth. At that point I jumped out from the hallway to fly away from Bubba but when Bubba fell out from the 5th floor to the bottom, it began to hop, so high it can reach my feet. So I tried to fly for my life but Bubba can easily get my feet. So I form my fingers as if I was pretending my hand was a gun. So I made a shooting sound with my mouth as I pointed my hand at Bubba. from there, Bubba died. So next, I flew back to the 5th hallway and met the girls father who is Chinese. And somehow the girl became Chinese too. The father pat my shoulder and said to me:-"Congratulations! You solved the mystery!"I didn't even know what he meant so I flew away fro that place to find myself at a very bizarre structure of a outdoor gym(basketball court with a water fountain tied up with string, hanging down underneath the basket). There was a huge sign above with a paragraph written but I only read the first two words which said "So GO!" and some humanoid in a robot suite came up to me and challenged me on a race. So I accepted his challenge and I magically put on a robot suite and began racing. We would push a lot in the race. In the end, I found myself at some huge open area with food and beer stands and three friends of mine practicing yoga. Dream ended there.
Last night I had a dream (don't know how it started) but I remembered I was returning to my apartment after an epic adventure I had (don't remember what it was). Apparently they destroyed the staircases to the top floor of the building so I had to use a ladder to get to the door. Somehow my roommate has been replaced by an emo girl who's anti-social. I would just place my bags on the floor and leave the place since I thought I could visit any of my friends around the block instead. I took my bike, I rode around the block and notice that the park has made mayor improvements. Suddenly I bumped into a gang who one of the individuals is someone I know (but somehow I don't remember who). He invited me to check out this Deamon Club later at night, close to the park. He said most of our friends will be there. I told him that "sure! I can't wait!" ... I dunno what the hell made me say that but what the heck. I rode to check the place and a couple of people have already arrived but are sitting on the benches, waiting for the club to begin later. I thought I could just go around the neighborhood with my bike and come back later. I rode around the park and made it back at my apartment where I decided to leave my bike their and head back to the park on foot (don't know why). As I was walking by the park on the sidewalk, someone had hit me on the head with some object, causing me to black out.
Few seconds later, my vision started to clear up and I found myself tied up and hanging down on a chain. I could see that it was already night and underneath me there was some satanic circle and encryption surrounding. Suddenly, I saw feet approaching me. I looked up while trying to get one of my hands loosen from the rope that was tied along with the chain. The person who approached me was a demon girl in black clothes, and short hairs. Her eyes were like cat-eyes, and she had sharp teeth. She said something but only thing I understood was that she mention how she is glad to see me awake. I don't know what was going on but by seeing where I was put to, I assume something bad is going to happen. I asked her what she want from me. She said she needed to sacrifice my body to summon the great Deamon Warlord back from his grave. I freaked out after hearing that but it wasn't too long until I thought quickly on how to get out of this. I manage to loosen out from the tie on both hands and feet. I told her that I knew someone who can help her find a perfect body for the ritual. Although I don't really know anyone in specific since I panicked. She took a minute to think and then she said "Alright! Take me where this person is". I told her that there is a club called the Deamon Club and the person should be there. So I took her to the place where the club was suppose to be. The club had already finished their meeting but there were still lots of people talking with one another. I told her to look around for any of the people to see if they know while I look for the person in specific. As we split up, I looked around and the place seems very strange. Weird tube like components where people would go in and sleep in them and lots of chickens everywhere. A couple of minutes have passed and people started to leave while I couldn't find anyone in particular who can help me. However, realizing that I am away from the demon girl, I could escape and make my way back to the apartment. So I ran off as fast as I could but as I was running on the street next to that satanic place from the park, the demon girl showed up and stopped me. She told me she couldn't find anyone who can help and that I still owe her a human body to sacrifice and If I didn't find anyone, she will use me instead. I got nervous and decided to flee out of the scene and head to my apartment.
As I was running my way there, I was wondering if my new roommate is still at the apartment. I checked from a far distance and saw that the lights were on thru my room's window. She had to be there. So I use my flying powers and flew across the other buildings to reach the ladders of the apartment. I got up, entered the building and rushed into my room. My roommate was sitting on her bed, reading a book. She stared at me, very seriously. I told her that I needed help, that there was a this demon girl that is after my body to do a human sacrifice. She didn't say anything but she did opened her eyes widely. Before I could say anything else, a noise was heard from the kitchen (where the entrance to the apartment was). We both went quickly to check what it was... it was the demon girl; she had broke into our apartment. As my roommate saw the demon girl, somehow her reaction was surprising, because she knew who that demon girl was. She started arguing with her and telling her to get out of the apartment. The demon girl also started arguing with her, and I was just... standing and watching, trying to understand what was going on. Through the discussion they were both having, I found out that they both used to be friends once, but the demon girl decided to become evil and that's how they were separated. The argument would still continue until I decided to shut them up and gave my own speech. I said that they both should stop arguing to each other, they shouldn't be enemies just because they both have different sides now. I mentioned as I pointed at the demon girl "She doesn't have to be evil with us just because of a certain decision we took of not becoming evil. We all still can get along if we all treat each other with respect and take care of each other; care for each other; have fun with each other just like real friends." both of the girls felt guilt and one of them said, "okay, we could try". As soon as that happen, the credits rolled up and the episode ended. Apparently all this was a tv series we live in.
The next episode began immediately after that. It started as we are inside my apartment room. The two girls still hated each other and they had another argument. The demon girl said she will leave back to her lair at a far away country to get away from my roommate. She also said she will return to her place as well. I somehow had a vision of the past in which I was portraying another, different character who was a knight with a horse. I had a cool silver knight sword. Me and a group of men were on our way to slay a witch. We went thru a gates, guarded by men, and stopped at a cliff where at the bottom of it lays the witches hut. We also saw the witch who was stirring on her cauldron. We left our horses, and sprung by surprise into the hut. We had the witch surrounded. I took a look at the witch and notice she was a little chubby so somehow, without any control of my actions, I told her she was fat, and she got depressed. "You called me fat?" she said, weeping. She then left far away from us, crying as my crew laughed at her. I realize then that the character I'm playing from the vision was a villain. I would then laugh maliciously and started drinking booze and we all making fun of each other. One of my crew members were Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse (they look very creepy). After that scene, the vision ended and I found myself at the cliff side of that same place but in present time. The spot where the hut was is empty but a mark of the huts ground shape on the ground. I felt bad of what happened in the vision and I looked at the horizon, wondering where that witch had took off to. There was nothing I could do so I packed my things and walk to head back to my apartment. The dream ended there.
buffer_getpixel for Game Maker Studio
Posted on May 09, 2017 at 14:09
Are you a game maker user?
Need a faster surface_getpixel?
You come to the right place!
This asset comes with a small list of scripts that will help you get a pixel color super fast and its totally free.
How to use each command:
buffer_getpixel_begin(surface) = creates the buffer for checking using a specified surface id
(or surface drawing) and returns you a buffer index.
(NOTE: application_surface only picks the regular Draw events;
not the GUI events.)
If your surface image is static, you can set it to create event,
otherwise, set it in the event that you will get the pixel.
buffer_getpixel(ind,x,y,width,height) = Gets the RGB of a pixel within the specified buffer id (surface).
buffer_getpixel_ext(ind,x,y,width,height) = Gets the RGBA of a pixel within the specified buffer id.
buffer_getpixel_r(ind x,y,width,height) = Gets the Red value of a pixel
buffer_getpixel_g(ind x,y,width,height) = Gets the Green value of a pixel
buffer_getpixel_b(ind x,y,width,height) = Gets the Blue value of a pixel
buffer_getpixel_a(ind x,y,width,height) = Gets the Alpha value of a pixel
The file comes with the scripts and a demonstration of how it works (for dynamic images);
In case your image does not need to update the drawing at all, here's an example on how it works for static images (performance is more noticeable from this):
var ss = surface_create(800,450);
WIDE = surface_get_width(ss);
HIGH = surface_get_height(ss);
buff = buffer_getpixel_begin(ss);
//DRAW EVENT (or any other event)
var pixel = buffer_getpixel(buff,16,16,WIDE,HIGH);
//GAME END EVENT
Try it out if you like and give feedback.
Any problems, doubts, questions, do reply back if you like!
Been 3 years already...
Posted on May 08, 2017 at 09:06
Hello everyone. I havent been in this website for like more than 3 years already. I have been through terrible phase the last time I was on. I never really was bright or any of a good person but I finally came back after leaving college, dumping out everything from the past, and doing some good deeds and progress with Game Maker and the community. I dont really have much to say but Im actually back at this place to make good use of it for sharing anything new I make. I work alone now (in case you have remembered me).
Anyway cant wait to hear from you all. :)
