Don’t worry about yesterday’s update. I barely had time to hit the save button before the whole system ran out of batteries. Turns out, my laptop has a battery that doesn’t work no more. So, hooray for that. Anyway, like I was saying yesterday, I think if I had a variable that controls the distance…

Today the plan is to finish installing the lunge code and make the attack be dependent on the distance. I think the seti -New Note. The computer crashed the first time I posted this, like it says next. I just noticed that I was in the process of mis-spelling the word “Settings.” -Speaking of Spelling.…

10-11 : 3655 Rows

Today I had some time to play with the main system. So I started just doing small tweaking. Now the Double Jump is more of a flip. After considering some of Steve’s (that my friend from High School who is kind enough to provide character designs and animations) artwork for the Thief, I realized that…

Such a wanker. Totally slacked off and was playing the original Prince of Persia. Good news is that since I designed the Thief game to be a Prince of Persia style game before I ever played it, the gameplay so far is almost nothing like Prince of Persia. It’s like I was given instructions on…

Archive

More archive now, so, yeah. Same as the first chunk of archive, but fresher.

ThiefEd

So, yeah. Since I haven’t posted all of the archive yet, the Level Editor that I’m currently building is called “ThiefEd” (pronounced Thief-ed, like how a mental child would say Thieved). It is the Level Editor – hence the Ed part- for the game with the working title The Thief’s Tale. Which is in turn…

Pictures

Okay, it looks like I can insert a picture. So, there—–>It’s a picture right? ‘Sides my pet name is Sugar Bear, I know, adorable. Plus I own a green sweater just like it.Otherwise, I see no reason to have my pictures in the diary. Maybe images of the project, but not of me. That would…

CID Welcomes the Google Bot

Hmm, a break from the uploading of the archive for a moment. It seems that the Google Spider finally found me earlier today, when it was doing its internet crawl thing. Oddly, when I type in the exact name of the Diary “Confessions of an Indie Developer” I’m 4th in the list. I’m okay with…

Dumb, really dumb. That’s what the computer is. I tried to implement the new physics system, and then the program would crash every time it was loaded. So I’ve pondered for the last few days how the heck to test it so I can fix it. -I also caught a weird bug. When you would…
