legit now whoo hoo

Sup trainwreckers!!!

I finally went legit. I don't work for the man anymore, I'm freelancing full time now yaaaaaay. I design wordpress templates for my friends that are complete noobs to web publishing, publish books and comix, transcribe audio files, and crank out video games. Not bad for a Jill of All Trades :D

My laptop died so I bought the same model from a friend and had to upgrade the hard drive and OS, so whooo hooo, I'm in business. 500GB and Win7 wheeee!

I wish Win7 wouldn't be so finicky and let me noodle around with Klik and Play.

Clickteam sent an email yesterday about Multimedia Fusion 2.5 dev version and if I were to buy that and all the modules and go legit, it'll be nearly $1000. WHAT

I use App Game Kit to make android apps, but it's not fun, it's a freaking headache.

When I want to quell the urge to break my laptop, I go to my room, fire up the ol' Win 3.1 machine and play with KNP/TGF.

I miss those old days.

Nearly there

I'm still mucking around with AGK. I got some of the files I need to test it on after a bit of digging, and having to update other files. I'm running out of room again on my computer, but a few deletes and some backups will free space.

About to go home, eat dinner, then code and see if my games compile for Android, and then I'm in business.

Wot I'm doin.... Upgraded (yay) and going legit

I got a new Android tablet from my sis so I can finally shut up about not having a real device to program on... kinda. I did have an Entourage Pocket Edge but that was too quirky to program on and no one uses Android 1.6--except me.

I'm too stuck on BASIC and I wish QB64 ran on Android. QuickBasic... wheeee, fun times. Then Visual Basic, ugh, nightmares....I have to dust off my HTML knowledge cos I haven't hard coded any HTML since HTML 3. I know, I'm ancient as hell :P I want to learn HTML5 and Java so I can make some online games... I wish I could just hammer out something in TGF, use Vitalize and be done with it, but I got to learn Flash... don't have to, but it's an option. All those braces scare me. I have nightmares of missing closing braces.

If only I could use KNP/TGF on this android tablet and go nuts. I'd crank out half finished games again, haha!

I was messing around with TGF2 Newgrounds version and was trying to decompile and hack the game I made, but after 2 days of eye bleeding code reading and brute force, I'm like forget it, I just need to write some PC games and sell em so I can go legit and buy the damn thing. I want to make a living making games so why not? I have a copy of DarkBasic. I should do something with it, right? I tried using AGK but damn it, it broke my machine. I couldn't get it compile for Android at all (and AGK is just like DarkBasic in syntax. The programmers swapped pararetheses for brackets, sneaky programmers.)
