stalled out, sort of.

Stalled out on the "really simple flash game" I wanted to develop. Designer just got back in touch with me about it, but I'm not feeling it.

So, er, I went a different direction. Came up with a different game that's a lot less simple, but possibly easier _for me_.

Ideas have been bombarding me for a day or two. I want to do something with machine learning. With maze autogen. And, er, ... maybe I have it figured out. But I spent the last five or six hours just getting the beginning of the framework together (and by that, I mean everything works except "start game" ;) )

I clicked on 'start game' before you mentioned it didn't work ... I found it funny that it didn't work. ;)

:HEHEHEHEH: Thank you :)

Here's to hoping it lives up to the hype. ;)

The bots are going to be very, very stupid to start with. I _might_ need to actually pre-train them some to give them a hand. And the graphics won't be as polished as the title screen. :/

A little "unpolished" works fine for me. It gives it character. ;)

1. this looks awesome!

2. how the hell do you embed flash into LJ? besides youtube i've never been able to do it.

:D :D :D

2) umm. Well, I used the "lj-embed" button, though I don't know if that was needed or not. Then I copied some sample code for the object/embed bit.


<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="560" height="400">

title screen looks really well done. :) Good luck with this!

I gave my hand at shootorial and failed. (I'm still giving hands, though) But I always run into an error. Something about naming. And it's increasingly frustrating each time I do it. So. la. :P

Thanks :D The rest may not be so well done, and really it all will boil down to whether the game is fun/entertaining... but I guess we'll see. :)

I develop in a very different way than they do, but any time you see me online feel free to see if I can help you through it. You just need over a few hurdles and you'll get more adept. :)

ps. what are you doing up this early? don't you know you're supposed to sleep in in college? ;)

I like to get up early with no rush. That and my first class is at 8 A.M. and I have to leave at least by 7:15 to make it to class on time. lol XD

8am classes should be taken out back and shot :)
