random DOS game time
this time it's Novalogic's Armored Fist!
the game supports external drivers for joysticks?! fancy
ahh yes, the two genders, WESTERN and EASTERN
start the mission!
I don't know, can't we just get... beyond terrordome?
no orders? well that's bullshit.
OK SO I switched to a different mission and now we have some orders.

and a great candidate for a death generator!
anyway I should at least see what the game looks like before I go generatorize it.
It looks like it's got voxel terrain with sprites overlaid. Neat.
and we have text injection
and a font
44 minutes from learning the game existed to making a generator for it.
That's a pretty good pace, I think

stupid idea: the c64 has two analog inputs, in the forms of the X/Y paddle ports. each one can read 256 analog values, so by hooking up a DAC to them you could communicate with the c64, 16 bits at a time
so apparently the SID (yes, it's hooked up to the sound chip. don't ask) updates the value every 512 cycles, so on a 1mhz c64 you can only get new values a bit under 2000 times a second.
So you'd maybe be able to manage ~2000 cps, or a bit over 9600 baud?
anyway the real reason this is a "stupid idea" is that the c64 has an expansion slot, a user port, a serial port, and a cassette port, all of which are easier to interface with (and probably faster)

I updated SorryPunk! It now has a fallback for characters that aren't in the font, so if you want to use characters that aren't included, it'll use your browser's font fallback and you'll get something instead of nothing. Image
the generator is based on the one used by but using the font as used on, and it includes all the characters provided by it. This is basically just the western languages characters + Cyrillic
so I can't just add in missing characters, they don't exist in the right font. So instead I'm switching to rendering missing characters in "Verdana" (not really) using the browser's text rendering.

I mean, no? but technically this is progress Image
weirdly no matter what size I tell it to you, it always renders at the same TINY TINY size
well that's technically better Image

I've always wanted to make a game that's a prank on Sierra-era adventure gamers.
It'd have tons of items that could be picked up, but only like 5 of them would ever be useful.
no inventory limits. lots of inventory scrolling
you've got the scissors (sharp), scissors (safety), scissors (kitchen shears), scissors (fabric), scissors (dull), scissors (rusted)

but there's never anything to cut

Fun fact: European colonization of North America hasn't even lasted the length of one John Cage song.
The Spanish founded St. Augustine in 1565, 465 years ago.
One version of his 1987 work "Organ2/ASLSP (As Slow as Possible)" is currently being played at a church in Germany and will last 639 years.
