Stuff I just typed.

Ooook. Mainly just doing this because I have not blogged since May 1st, and that is a bit large of a gap, even for me.

I don't want this to be a RC sized blog so I'll just breifly explain my summer. I drank soda and played my xbox360.

Anyyyway, 10th grade sucks so far, school food is worse then its ever been and more costly, and I'm bored. That's what school's like.

Right now I'm in some sort of uncreative stage. Normally I'd be easily willing to make this blog much longer but I just lack the willpower to devote the time into that. If that makes much sense.

Now at least TRYING to add detail, I've started working on my game again. I don't want to list too much as it's in super pre-Beta stage right now, but basically, it's a top down shooter. And yeah, you might be thinking, there's enough, but by the time I've finished it'll probably be sometime around 2015 and the current topdown's such as Adrenaline and The Havoc Agency have been lost in the depths of time, along with a lot of other games, making mine cutting edge. Of course, if you can wait. So if anyone wants to be in the beta's… eh. First person who posts gets to be, along with some others who basically already test it, or just deserve it.

I'm planning, for each "major" release, to have 3 primary things:

1. A decent graphic boost

2. Multiplayer update (which doesn't exist as of now)

3. 1 or 2 campaign missions

So just put that, add with the fact I'm a very novice gm'er, busy, and lazy, and you can only guess why it'll take me 6 years. It's already over a year old.

Due to the poorly drawn graphics, and the fact it is subject to change, I'll just post a couple small pictures.

This is just a MP5 I drew. Took a couple minutes, and actually, it's probably the best thing I've drawn.

This is the character shooting a weapon called the Shaft Equalizer. Sort of a plasma-machine gun type thing.

Today I got to wave 26 on Der Reise, on CoD:WaW. Amazing fun, especially since I had the wonderwaffe or however you spell it. I also preordered Halo: ODST, can't wait for it to come out. I'm also planning on getting Modern Warfare 2. And if anyone has Section 8, should I get it? I've heard it's pretty good.

Speaking of games, my guitar hero guitar and drums broke in the same month. I'll just taker a wild guess my brother might've contributed to that. And just to clear things up, yes, my brother is Kabob799.



I'd also like to add, that, my code is horrendously unreadable and lengthy, though it works. The step event for my character was about 260 lines of code, though in trying to implement a working 2-weapons-at-a-time deal I sort of added about 400 lines of code. And I cut back on finishing the shotgun due to my method would be to have each bullet have a seperate object, which would be very, very ugly. Due to this, it's hard for me to get help since people honestly can't read my code, or dig through it.


And as a side note, there's still the glitch where I appear as KaBob on the Active Users list. I mentioned this probably a year ago and it never seemed to have gotten fixed. My uneducated guess is that this has to do with our similar IP's. Though I don't ALWAYS appear as him. And yes, it shows it to other people too. Though, I think it only does it when both me and him are on, so probably IP conflict. Weird how it's only me appearing as him, and not him as me.

Here's a tip, if you want something to be good, WORK HARD ON IT. Not a few minutes' worth.

Lol, I'm lazy with GM too. It's been a couple years and I'm still mostly focusing on graphics in my game. I'm in 10th grade too!!! Wooo….

Yay! me too, I sometimes have to spend about 25 minutes rereading my code before I edit it.

I can see that being annoying, but at least it's KaBob, doesn't get too much awesome-r past that.

If you're not, good formatting works wonders for even the worst code. Things like tabbing blocks (like inbetween if statements, for loops, so on), putting parentheses around your conditions, and ending each line with a ;

Of course, good syntax highlighting also works wonders :D

But everytime you post sprites as jpegs, a child implodes.

I thought I'd momentarily reinstate the long gone 64D tradition of screenshotting hit counters at signifigant figures:

I still do that whenever the moment arises. :(

it just doesn't seem to occur as often
