Stickly

Today I made Stickly, it’s a fun little game in my opinion. Check out the new Creations page, it has the link to Stickly in it.

Here’s a screenshot:

That’s the first time I’ve ever used an image in a blog. Anyways, Stickly has a cool interface. It’s awesome. It looks like this:

Sweet isn’t it? Anyways, the game is a little aracade one with tiny graphics. You have to collect the coins and dodge bullets. You can roll, bounce, jump, and duck to avoid them. It’s addicting. I hope you enjoy the game, it’s well polished even though it took only a few hours to make. Check out the Creations page and you should be able to find a download. A new idea of mine is to create a gadget creation program that uses the same sort of interface as Stickly. Stay tuned on that one folks.

Cheers,

RC1 Found, Will Travel

Ignore the cheesy title, or don’t.  I thought it was pretty good, anyways, right after this I am going to start downloading the Windows Vista RC1 ISO, and I will install it to a spare computer which I had Linux on.  Unfortunately, I haven’t been using Linux much and it’s a quick install so I’m going to write over it.  I’ve been doing so PHP Programming and have a new idea for a site I have been working on.  I want to work out the basic features first, before adding a pretty original idea to the Internet.  Well, that’s all folks!

Cheers,

P.S.:  I put this under technology, because Release Candidate 1 is a new development.

Warning: New Idea

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of casual web surfing (giving feedback on my script, watching the forums I go to), and a little gaming.  Not too much else.  I also received a Personal Message (PM) from a guy that thought one of my old adventure games was cool.  You can check that game out here.  Well it sparked my interest, but I didn’t want to continue working on it.  Instead I decided I want to make an adventure game creation program.  That would be cool.  It will be something like Adventure Game Studio (AGS), but a little easier, and probably for now a little more limited.  What I want though, is for the developers I’m primarily showing to (Game Maker users or those at the Game Maker Community), to be able to use GML (Game Maker Language) as a basic syntax for extending the normal possibilities.  This will take the learning curve out of the program for at least some of the people, and add more functionality to the program.  Ideas are brewing, and I will probably get to work soon.  That’s all for now.

Cheers,

Read or Download Books in Google Books

Want to read or download books? I recommend Project Gutenberg which has been around for a while and has about 19,000 free ebooks on its site. It also has audio books, and some motion pictures. Well, Google Books is getting in on the game by allowing people to download full books. To do so click the Full view books radio button, enter your search keywords, and click Search Books to find a book. You can download the books as PDF’s (Download PDF Reader), or view them in your browser. My only complaint is that they store all the scanned books pages as images instead of converting them to text using Optical Character Recognition (OCR), meaning bigger loading times and file sizes. Anyways I was thinking about creating my own Web 2.0 site that allowed uploading books, viewing them in a nice page-by-page format like Google, and allowing downloads in multiple formats. That would be cool. Anyways my scripts are finally getting recognized, but you can’t download them now because my host 64digits seems to be down and I don’t feel like uploading a copy right now. Sorry. They should be back up soon. That’s all folks! I categorized this as link, because there are a lot of links!
Cheers,

My OS Programming Is Lacking Motivation

I’ve been lacking motivation on making an OS, little bursts of energy scramble about here and there, but there’s nothing really driving me. On the other hand making a SubOS seems like a lot of fun right now. The reason is, I know I can do it, and I have the motivation (from competition). The competition at the operating system’s communities doesn’t seem to be too high, and it seems more lonely and loose-knitted. I’m having trouble finding good tutorials for things, things don’t work due to version differences, and code acts weird depending on your assembler compiler. I’m having trouble with the linker, and I want to write my own bootloader, but everything seems to point to using GRUB. Things don’t match up, it’s hard code, and I would really rather develop something I know some people will try. Where as with most homebrew x86 (PowerPC ones too, but the things it there aren’t too many of those) OS’, people don’t give them much thought. No one wants a DOS prompt, when they can have another OS. With a SubOS, at least people download and try them. You might get flamed, but you get some good comments too. With OS programming, the homebrew audience is small (unless your involved with the Linux Kernels), like a kid running a puppet show in his backyard. If I do decided to develop one, or get something from my small bursts of energy, it will probably be a 16 bit one for starters. Then I’ll move on to tougher territory. Some people say switching later is a pain the arse, but for me it will probably be easier once I learn a little more about it all in general. So even though it might be tough to switch, it will probably be tougher to go right to 32 bit programming. Well, there’s my rant. So long folks.

Cheers,

My Work Unrecognized

I’ve been searching a lot for a problem recently with this kernel tutorial.  I don’t know the problem, I compile all the assembler and c, then comes the linker and I get a problem.  It says it cannot recognize the object file.  Oh well, I’ll figure something out.  Anyways, about the title, my scripts, they are being downloaded.  I have thrity-one downloads, but almost no replies on them.  I don’t get it.  Oh well, I guess that’s just how people are.  There’s my short little rant for today folks.

Cheers,

SubOS News Blog

I’m learning a little bit more about assembler and trying to learn some more each day. I want to assembler the resouces and then learn how to make my own operating system. I also started a SubOS News site, if you don’t know waht a SubOS is, a SubOS is an application that is also commonly called a “GUI'”, “Fake OS”, or “Shell”. I like them, some people don’t. I guess it just depends. The site can be found here. It’s going to be worked on soon, don’t worry!
