Cool and New Bug

The puzzle generator for my game................... only works properly if there's two rows

Not one, not three

Two rows

Columns? Fuck dude, go nuts, have a hundred

Works fine

But rows? Two.


#i'll rewrite it in c++ and package it as a mod tool or something #fuck it #thell does gamedev

Working with a cold is hard so no WF dev today

But I did manage to make my puzzle loader for Mental Block more flexible so that's good

Should there be a limit on the number of pics in an image set?

5? 10?


coffee

My vote is 9


thelldev

Y'had to pick an awkward number didn't you


#kidding #although if i do grid layouts instead of just sequential 9 is a good number

An Anonymous user asked:

What sort of stuff would be on the channel?

Honestly just. Neat shit

Like when I figure something out or folks want to learn about stuff I know about. Wanna know how I made my dissolve shader? Sure, I can make a video on that. How I'm setting up TOP/WF's servers to be secure when the new Internet is in? I'd love to

Literally just short, simple explanations on stuff I think is interesting or that I think are fun things to know

Not Kurzgesagt animations or whatever just screen recordings of me demonstrating where applicable or talking at the camera

Working on image sets tonight since having those working before the UI overhaul would be a good idea. Current limitations will be you can't rearrange stuff and they'll show in the order you upload them and it'll show in pre-defined grids. I will fix that eventually but I just aren't good enough at Javascript yet.


thelldev

Is worth a note - if one gets uploaded in the wrong order, you will be able to remove that and re-upload it to get it in the right place. It's awkward, I know.

One of the things I was originally planning to do was to have posts have a note to say if they were edited or not, similar to the [deleted] thing that shows reblogs have been deleted. 

But I'm kind of wondering if that's a good idea or not - on the one hand, I'm big on accountability (i.e. owning up to previous mistakes) but we also live in a world where people will go through everything you've ever said over the past 30 years, find the one thing you've said that might be slightly offensive and completely rip it out of context to destroy you as a human being so I'm wondering whether that implementation is ACTUALLY a good idea until we move as a society past that


thelldev



Gotcha, I'll leave that out then. 

Looking at my notes I think the original intention was to stop cases where say, someone put something along the lines of "everyone should be nice to each other", someone reblogged it with "i agree with OP" and then the original poster edited it to "hitler did nothing wrong" to make a callout on the reblogger. 

Extreme example but honestly you guys have done well enough at self-policing I don't think concerns over that kind of thing are particularly warranted at this point so I guess it's worth dropping. 


#got some code clean up to do still and then i can prototype the new dashboard UI

#this is a genuine request for input and opinions #should the [deleted] posts remove the ID of who posted it in reblogs too? #should i bother with the edited flag?

It's honestly really funny to me that hundreds if not thousands of websites have figured out how to implement JPG conversion to reduce a picture's file size without absolutely tanking the quality, but Twitter's still out here making people's small resolution artwork look crunchy.


blingsect

Another thought to go with this: my artwork is usually no bigger than 2 MB, and in terms of artwork on the internet nowadays (considering there are people that draw at stupidly large resolutions of like, 6000x4000), that's very small... and yet Twitter's still out here like "doesn't matter, shrink it down". It's a feral little website doing things its own way.

I actually have an e n t i r e  fucking devblog about image compression I could write if y'all are interested :eyes:

“int that a bit biased?” i said

”can you trust me? yeah i think you can trust me!” i joked

”oh shit they were covering their ass” i say now, having not watched their video, watching someone else talking about it, essentially proving that the video was in responce to questioning emails from the second person who wanted to do an interview with them

"oh well" i sigh as i remember that op demonized eating meat in the past and i move along peacefully


thelldev

I remember being impressed with that video when it came out but now the Coffee Break one has me disappointed :(

I'm not passing judgement immediately but it definitely seems suspect with the timing

Every £3 donation the Ko-Fi gets, I've been going out to my local nursery and buying acorns. They're pretty expensive (it takes up most of the donation to get one that's garunteed-ish to grow), but the local council gave me approval to plant them in the local recreation ground once the works there are done. Y'all have funded eight oak trees so far.

Let a report sit for two months because I can't read

Self-flagellation will commence shortly


#note to self: put UI system on hold and do at least a form for reports
