Ludum Dare 40   Leave a comment

I had neglected to add my Ludum Dare entry from late last year to my Porfolio so I did that just now. It’s a game called Warehouse Blues that I made in two days in Unity from scratch. It’s not perfect but I think I did a better job than my last 2D platformer.

Blog Update   Leave a comment

I really don’t use this blog as often as I might think I should.

I’m still making games and doing other work. I’m adding a subdomain to my site to host a friend’s books. Hopefully that’ll help him gain exposure.

A Lot of Work to Do, a Lot of Cleanup to Do   Leave a comment

I’ve been working pretty much non stop for the last few weeks. I had planned to upload my assignments as I did them, but they need some polish before I show them and I don’t have time for polish. So, expect a bunch of projects all at once when I get a load of free time, like maybe around winter holiday, or when I graduate next year…

Back in the Saddle   Leave a comment

It’s been over a year since my last update here. I’ve been putting coding updates in my personal blog, since I interweave them with personal comments, but it’s probably not good for my professional site to make it look empty like this.

I’m currently enrolled in the Advanced Game Development post-graduate program at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. I’ll be uploading my assignments to my Github and linking them here to show what I’ve accomplished.

I’ll also be putting some of my older projects on hiatus. As it happens, one of my class assignments is to develop a full featured chatroom, so I might use that to restart my MU* project. I might even make it open source, wouldn’t that be neat?

Anyway thanks for checking out my Blog. Expect more posts in the next few months.

4:30pm – This’ll be a short work session since I have to be somewhere in less than an hour, but I want to try and solve the AJAX error if I can before that. I’ve already taken a look at it and I’ve got no clue what’s going wrong. I don’t see any new code that would interfere with the jquery get function, yet it returns a fail result. So, I’ve gotta figure out under what conditions it could fail.

4:33pm – Oho! I found the problem. When I went to the php page itself it gave a syntax error. That explains it. That should be easy enoug to fix.

4:35pm – It doesn’t seem to have a syntax error in the file itself. I’ll try re-uploading it in case I don’t have the most recent version on the server.

4:46pm – Well I’ve gotten rid of the AJAX error but I still don’t have any posts showing. I wonder why that could be.

5:01pm – The AJAX error is gone, it was mostly a bunch of syntax errors in the PHP. But now it’s not putting up any posts and it’s not giving any errors. I added a data dump to console and found that it was getting a false result from the PHP script. That means the database connection isn’t working properly, in one of a few ways. It’ll take some effort to figure out what’s going wrong there, and I’m low on time, so I’m going to head out.

3:15pm – Well, my problem mysteriously resolved itself when I cleared my cookies, which makes as little sense as the problem itself. For now I’m going to ignore it, since there’s nothing I can do, and continue programming. There’s a bug with the cookie anyways, so I need to implement a logout function. I’ll do that now.

3:35pm – I’m having trouble figuring out how to end the session when I’m doing the PHP side as a web service. I’m not sure but I think I’m going to have my sessions never end, server-side, while they end locally in browser, because it’s impossible to always have the browser close out sessions at the end. I’m not sure if this isn’t how the thing’s meant to be used either.

For now I’m going to do this the easy way and see if anything goes wrong.

4:07pm – Well the logout seems to be working fine. The cafe’s internet isn’t, though. It takes a while to load anything, if it loads at all… And it’s uncomfortably hot. I don’t think I’ll stick around for the second hour like I planned.

The next thing I need to do is figure out how I broke the basic post display, and fix it.

7:48pm – Some friends gave me some suggestions for my null != null is true problem, so I’ll give them a try.

8:19pm – No dice. Even when I have it as if(sessionID) and sessionID is null,

8:24pm – I’ve made progress! It’s a browser issue. In FireFox it works perfectly, but in Chrome it fails miserably.

8:33pm – Well that’s as far as I’ve been able to get. This really has me stumpped. I tried switching over to the !== operator but that doesn’t do any different. In Chrome, null !== null is true, and in Firefox null !== null is false.
