Posted by Glen on May 3, 2016, 2:12 p.m.

I felt like playing Minecraft the other day and missed playing on the server. The link to it on the website shows a 404 error, so I assume it's not being hosted anymore. This makes me sad.

A*Pathfinding with some extra features

Posted by Glen on Oct. 12, 2014, 5:39 p.m.

So, I've been re-writing an old A*Pathfinding script from the gm6 days. I've converted it to GM:Studio and added some new features that it lacked in the past and that current available scripts don't have implemented.

So, I've started working on a new gui system for my terrain/map editor. I wanted to see what everyone thought about my scrollbars and if you have
any suggestions on how to make them flow even better, let me know. I'm trying to make them feel really fluid.

Games that don't exist

Posted by Glen on Jan. 4, 2014, 5:15 p.m.

Looking through my blogs over the last 3 years, I've found a few game projects that I was planning, but never finished. I noticed that they all had something in common. Each one had the potential to work in a 3D environment and needed a terrain/map editor and environment engine. …

Have you ever played a first person shooter that moved the screen with the player's movements and reactions? For example, a dive roll. The camera view actually tumbles and the screen appears to flip forward. I've always wondered what the view would be like from the characters' eyes when you …

Zelda Chip Tune + Sub Bass = ???

So, i'm having fun with the song Lost Woods from Ocarina of Time. I've started making a remix of it. I kept the original chip tune melody and added sub bass. Critique all you want. It's a work in progress. It's easily the slowest song I've ever attempted to make …

I wonder how many of you listened to Cosmic Gate back in 1999. This has been my newest music project. It's a remix of their number one single "Exploration of Space". I hope you like it. I had a lot of fun producing and remaking the melodies of …

And here we go again. I have another completed music project. This time I decided to recreate Levels by Avicii and give it some of my own characteristics. I put roughly 10 hours total into this one. Tell me what you think.
