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,

Will Ideas Run Out?

I was pondering something about programming today, and realized it could apply to all of life.  My thought is this, what if, in the future we run out of original ideas.  I mean someone will always be able to vary something in one way or another, but will we start “running low” on originality.  Honestly folks think about it, a lot of times I have an idea or a name for something and I search the idea to see if it’s been done.  A lot of times, it has.  I’m not saying we will run out of original ideas (although we could), but they might be in short supply at some point in the future.  This is something to consider.  Feel free to disagree with me, this is pretty much just general chatter.  Everybody enjoys writing a little rant every once and a while.

Cheers,

New Stuff

I thought I’d fill you in on my latest ideas and projects using a quick little list:

  1. Last night I actually did make my comment system using PHP. I think I just showed myself up.
  2. I have an idea for some sweet artificial intelligence. It takes in commands (words, etc.) that the user types in along with what to do when that word is typed and it would simulate a visual, auditory, or sensual action example:Type if the [whatever] hears, sees, or senses something (1,2,3): 1
    Type what the [whatever] hears: Car
    The [whatever] does nothing. Type what you do: Scream

    Now if you repeated the scream enough times the noise of a car would trigger the scream from whatever it is we’re simulating (let’s say a child) and he would scream whenever he hears a car. You could also repeat enough actions for an object to change the habit for that particular sound or visual. This is just a concept maybe I’ll work on it later.

  3. I have an idea for an RPG map interpreter sort of thing, where it runs off my engine but anybody could make an adventure. I actually might pursue this.
  4. I am still working on my secret PHP project (though it isn’t very secret anymore).

That’s all folks! By the way I received forty-one hits yesterday, an all-time high for me. That’s a good thing. Plus I am receiving a lot of comments. I think this blog is gaining popularity.

Cheers,

Secret Project Revealed, 9/11, Bush Speech

I’ve been doing a lot PHP coding recently, and still have a ton to do.  I need to code a comment system and that could take me a little while.  Besides, I don’t feel up to it.  That means I’m not going to do it today.  My post on 9/11 (see previous entry) had a few comments here and I’m glad people liked it.  Despite what it’s about I am proud of it.  On another site I also received some feedback on that.  Some of those people are less politically driven though.  I’ll reveal my secret project now, it’s a book system.  It’s going to allow people to upload books, write books, allow downloading in different formats, and I have more plans.  As for Bush’s speech, I wasn’t very happy with what I watched of it.  It was driven politically and he used it to make public his points.  He repeated a lot of the same ideas.  Being an independent person (who leans more towards the liberal side of things) I had a little hope for our President’s speech.  He disappointed me by using it to broadcast his views instead of respecting the people who were killed.  Most of the ideas were the same repetitive ones, and there wasn’t a lot of original wording.  Not so well done in my opinion.  That’s all for today.

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,

gamehawk

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,

Assembler and OS Programming, VBScript and GML, and an E-Zine

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking/working. I’ll start from the beginning. Yesterday after looking at the bootloader I decided to learn some Assembler(Asm) before moving onto actually coding my own bootloader and learning more about the kernel. It will definitely be better in the long run. I found a great tutorial, but some of it doesn’t work with NASM, so I got A86. It can generate objects so I could use it to write an OS. Not sure if I will though. Anyways, I also had a bright(wink) idea to make a script that can use the SAPI and Microsoft Agent for the wonder game making program Game Maker by Mark Overmars. So I used the built in language GML, and used it to generate VBS script files and execute them during the game since GML is a little limited with internal use. It can use DLL’s and external files well though, opening up a world of possibilities. Some people have their antivirus programs set to alert for VBScript, but there’s no virus. Check for yourself if you run the example or create one, it will create the VBS files in C:\. As for the e-zine, it’s just a hunch, but I’ve been thinking about mixing a slew of my articles, writing new ones, and maybe gathering some contributors (if they like the initial few issues), and making an e-zine on coding. I was recently inspired by showing somebody some Asm and C++ stuff on the wonderful site 64digits, they are my file hosting service of choice. It’s also a Game Maker (GM) community, so it’s not a place similar to MegaUpload or another on of those services. So check out my links, there’s only eight of them. Check ’em out. So I guess this is the end, that is until I blog again.

Cheers,

P.S.: This blog is tagged Open Source because the scripts are open source. Have fun. Bye,and no, I won’t edit again.

Edit: Actually, I didn’t edit the above. I just wrote it after the usual Cheers statement. So this is the first actual edit. I edited this to tell you I ran spell check. Just thought I’d let you know, because it’s polite (I also like acknowleging I made an edit).
