The Sandbox   Leave a comment

Okay work time is time for work. Gonna make the background into a bunch of 16×16 squares instead of 32×32, and give them simple colours… Huh, interesting, I had thought that shrinking them wouldn’t make a big difference since the graphics are simpler and it’s just re-using two bitmap stamps over and over, but the […]

Plants and Animals   Leave a comment

So here I am, at the cafe again. It’s been a while; this last month has been terrible for me overall. I’ve decided to push the textworld project to the back burner. I kept changing my goals on that project and ultimately realized I wasn’t working towards any of them anymore. Instead I’m going to […]

Back to Work   Leave a comment

Back to work after a while. The task list I added previously is helping a lot. I was able to quickly get back to work with only the briefest refresher. I just polished up the generateLocationText function to wrap the text in a font tag to give it a nice format. Next I’m going to […]

Lots of Lists   Leave a comment

I’ve been working for a while but hadn’t written anything in my open text editor for the blog. Didn’t have anything to say, I guess. Now I do. I’m not sure how I want to handle the list of a space’s contents. I was going to have it be a list of things, but then […]

Run down the list of active mobiles, updating each one Check if the player’s location has changed, and update the Location text accordingly Check if the […]

Let’s Get These Kids Talking to Eachother   Leave a comment

So now that I’ve gotten over that bump from earlier, I still need to actually get this thing working. Right now I’ve got a basic interface set up with feeder text, but in order to have it interface with the TextWorld simulation, I’ve got to handle the link TextEvents it sends. I’m also somewhat worried […]

HaXe+NME is Back On!   Leave a comment

Finally got a reply on the NME forums; someone suggested I might be able to use the font tag to do what I wanted. I’m so used to CSS, it hadn’t occured to me that the font tag could be used that way. I’m going to give it a try right now. *try try try* […]

Big Problem with NME, Jumping Platforms Again   Leave a comment

So, despite going on about my l33tness, there’s some things I can’t or shouldn’t do. It turns out I’ve run into a very severe roadblock with HaXe+NME. Well, HaXe is great, the problem is with NME or specifically nme.text.TextField because you see, it doesn’t mimic all the functionality of flash.text.TextField and specifically it doesn’t have […]

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 […]
