Discovered this FPS gem from 2007 made by a solo gamedev from Uruguay, impressive: medium.com/@dominictaraso… #gamedev Good news it works on win10. But for some reason on my native resolution it crops part of the screen. On 4:3 seems it doesn't crop. Oh & I had to start the game a few times to test it, which was super annoying cuz it has the first sin of video games, an UNSKIPPABLE INTRO!!

So, I'm finally working on a "material" system in my engine. Until now there was no need for it since there was just one scene shader, with the only object-unique uniform being the texture. The framebuffer and debug lines were special cases that bind their own shaders (1/?) So, each "object" (I called it Model) was just Mesh, texture, and the model matrix. This was actually the whole scene rendering logic, I did some checks to see if models in sequence have the same texture or mesh to reduce unnecessary binds: (2/?) Image

Rust feels a bit like eating a big, loaded burger. You bite on one side and condiments leak on the other.. Except the condiment is not memory but your nerves. Yeah, I'm a noob, so the last option is to just type stuff in until it works 😬 Except here I'm just confused and stuck.. Pls someone halp 😭 Or explain why I shouldn't do that if that's not intended?

Was flaneuring around and found a place in Belgrade where you can't see any trees. Really strange. Makes it look like some arid place. Image And past the middle of the little square with a strange undefined centerpiece, there's a prominent, elevated part that seems to be guiding you to some important place - but actually just leads nowhere - a drop with a fence. Is this 90s games level design? ImageImageImage

Whenever some completely new content-making challenge comes into my hands, It really feels good to make tools and "one click" scripts all the time. Using my hands and PRECIOUS time to copy 10 values and rotate 3 objects 90 degrees?! Nah, lets spend 2h making a script for that. Most time being wasted because 1. Blender api 2. Python.

One of my all time favorite albums - Suburbs by Arcade Fire is 10 years old today! It has really had an emotional impact on me as a dreamy virgin-student and it's just crazy how the time went by.. Image One of few albums that imo doesn't have a bad song & I can't decide which one is favorite, varies with the mood. Quite liked the less repeated but groovy songs like We Used to Wait & City with No Children. Every song fits in the overarching theme perfectly

Also trying to improve dropping with a flatter plate and semolina ImageImage Aggghhh this is a total disaster, it didn't slide off properly and fell in the corner, folded, then I was trying to fix it with a spoon and it ripped ahhh Image

Can't believe google can't help me. Trying to find a very old cartoon about cars, from 30s/40s, where driver gets lost on an interchange and asks a burger guy for directions, who tells him there's no exit. Also there's an half-finished bridge with toll at half the price. Anyone? r/tipofmytongue found it!! That's it:

Thread about personal #unity packages: I think I've converted most of my Unity stuff now to packages. It's pretty neat, and super easy to reuse, and there's just one copy of each per project. Of course, you need to make sure it works in every project #unitytips (1/?) So, basically how to convert your code to package: first, you need to have your code isolated with an asmdef. If your code is super-cross-referenced with everything else this might be a headache to make it work. Basically you need to reference everything you are using..

I'm going away from Twitter for a while. Whenever my thoughts stray a bit I automatically open twitter. I've become quite addicted and that really gets in the way of my work. The classic feeling of "omg look what amazing stuff other people are making" doesn't help either. That doesn't mean I won't drop occasional gamedev progress, but if I do I'll TRY not to stick around. Because every time I do, I constantly keep checking for likes & comments for self-validation, and that also takes a big impact on my time & energy without even realizing it
