Flat Screen LCD!

Posted by DesertFox on May 12, 2006, 9:13 a.m.

Hah! Since my monitor blew, I got a nice 17-inch LCD monitor for US$150!

Anyhow, I am modeling like crazy. I've made about a half a dozen low poly models for my upcoming game, and now I just gotta figure out how to use them in Gamemaker! The new model …

I may be getting a nice monitor from the tech department as they have a few extra monitors, which would be very nice. Until then, my home computer is useless. Oh well.

I'm still waiting on the results of the GMC cage match, which the end is long overdue; I'm …

Monitor Problems!!!!!

Posted by DesertFox on May 10, 2006, 4:57 p.m.

That's right, quintuple exclamation points, and they are needed!

All of a sudden my monitor went POP! really loud, and now there is a double image of everything, especially bad at the bottom! I can barely type, it is so blurry. I thing something broke, and now the CRT is …

We need a Game Contest

Posted by DesertFox on May 9, 2006, 8:14 p.m.

We need to make some sort of contest. That's all I can say. Summer break is coming up, and definitely, we need a contest. Else we just sit there aimlessly making games. With a contest, we can sit there, aimfully making games

What sort of contest? I don't know. …

I'm working on an AI system involving and focusing hiding behind obstacles, and popping out to shoot. It's coming along nicely, I just need a few ideas about what else to implement in the AI.

Talk away.

REZ's Giant Blog

Posted by DesertFox on May 9, 2006, 11:44 a.m.

Has anyone else seen the size of REZ's text lately? It is very big. Size 72, or something about that size. Maybe larger.

Anyway, it is scant weeks until I graduate and go off to college for a degree in gaming design.

In other news, GMC is still down, and …

Something Im working on

Posted by DesertFox on May 8, 2006, 3:58 p.m.

I've started doodling around in Wings3D, and I've gotten the hang of the controls (I'm used to Bryce5 boolean operation instead of Vertex Manipulation) and am working on some models for my game, [Working Title] which is about [Working Storyline]

One really crap thing about exporting *.obj in Wings3D is …

Wurble Wurble

Today, I go to contest for many things, including some 3D Digital Art, a 3D animation, and, of course a game, filed under the Communication: Other category.

I know, I just slipped it in a strange category, but I cannot put in the games category. But its not cheating, hahahaha! …

On the subject of thumb drives

Posted by DesertFox on May 2, 2006, 4:16 p.m.

Personally I think they are awesome. I use mine for everything, and carry gamemaker on it, since I use about 5 different computers, along with my main home computer.

The only problem is sometimes you leave them in the computer, and don't remember until you find you need it. Hence …

Pointlessness and Ranting

Posted by DesertFox on May 1, 2006, 8:23 a.m.

Many a times I've seen people asking how do you do this, and how do you do that, and you give them an answer, and they cuss you out because they don't understand your clearly, concisely commented code. (love alliterations)

What is it about lesser programmers that makes them think …
