There are Four TextBoxes!   Leave a comment

Last time on ElectricSquirrel Z! I converted the scrollbar class from Flash to HaXe, which I can do because I am an elite hacker! Or an l33t haxxor, I guess. Well that might be an exaggeration, but considering how balls crazy this scrollbar system is, I think I have the right to be proud of […]

New TextWorld Work   Leave a comment

It’s been quite a while since I’ve been able to do any work on my projects, and not for lack of trying! I’ve either been caught up in the Unitarian site (which is done and up at http://unitarian.sarnia.com/ ) or preoccupied with something else. Games have been distracting; SWTOR and Anno2070 have been big contenders […]

TextWorld Progress   Leave a comment

Cheese and crackers! Before I started working earlier tonight, I cleaned up the desktop on my laptop. I’ve been doing stuff all night and now when I turn it on again and see the mostly empty desktop, it’s like a stark white barren plane! Anyways I’ve settled down from my anxiety and I’m going to […]

NME TextWorld   Leave a comment

So I haven’t worked on my TextWorld project for a while, but after a week of doing web development for a local unitarian congregation, I dropped the beat on the A-Life and decided to pick up the Text again. From what I learned in the A-Life project, NME seems like the ideal target for my […]

Figuring Out HaxePunk   Leave a comment

Well, I’m trying to learn HaxePunk, which is a HaXe port of FlashPunk, but both are lacking something important. Good overview. Even pouring over the documentation doesn’t give me a good idea of what everything is and how they fit together. I’m able to figure out some things via the tutorials, and so I’m going […]

HaXePunk is Coming Under Control   Leave a comment

Well, it’s taken a lot of finageling and futzing but I’ve managed to get HaxePunk to operate with FlashDevelop the way I wanted it to. Code completion works, lookups work, and pressing the test button tests the app. Huzzahulations! Now to actually learn how to use HaXePunk and see how it goes. The framerate isn’t […]

A Beginning for A-Life   Leave a comment

Today I don’t feel like working with text, but I can’t relax and play, so I’ve got to work on something else. So, I’m going to start doing the other option of the two I started with, when I started the text game. I’m going to start doing some A-Life experiments. So, I’m going to […]

Giving HaXe a Try   Leave a comment

So, now that I’ve decided to give HaXe a go, I’m going to start out targeting Flash. I’m familiar with Flash and comfortable with it. I’ll keep anything platform-specific seperate from the workings of the game in general. Then, I can write interfaces on top of the inner workings. One thing that’ll be difficult is […]

Maybe I should try HaXe   Leave a comment

Am I jumping formats again? Apparently JavaScript doesn’t work in all browsers, and certainly, some people turn it off. So, what if I used server-side scripting, like PHP? Well, then you could only play when you’re logged into the internet. When I was doing it in Flash, you could download the .swf and play wherever […]
