A brand new game
for Windows, HTML5, iPhone, Android TV and more,
There's nothing quite as scary,
As the chaos of compiling.
The errors jumping out at you,
And files that are all frightening.
So far, no progress on the box.
I decided to attempt to get my simple Hello World code to additionally run on Android, so I started by looking into "Android compile C++"
Various sites suggested I need the Android NDK and to look at the included examples.
The examples, of course, weren't bloody well included, and I had to hunt for those, too.
All the tracks in this ALBum are ALChoon reinterpretations of some of my favourite tracks by Pulp. They come from the entire catalogue of Pulp albums and singles, but as with all AL-Bum's, they are not strictly "remixes", and are, instead, reinterpretations of the songs in a new and unique manner.
As a result, I've given this album the subtitle of..
"Something Borrowed - Something New"
Total 16 tracks
I imagine future Daily Blog posts might end up reading roughly the same way, for a while..
"Today, I coded more of my new Framework..."
and that's about it!
A lot of coding skills to learn.
This method must be tried.
I don't mind if I fail.
I still have Monkey by my side.
Today's been all about Emscriptn, which is the tool I'll be (hopefully!) using to convert C++ to HTML5 projects.
First issue, the compiler didn't know how to include extra includes, so my "I can do it all via the command line" didn't quite work out, already!!
Relearning the ropes.
There sure are a lot.
Some things I've remembered.
Whilst others, forgot.
Nothing much at all is different, and I'm afraid this is mostly a "For Futureproofing" update to the game.
iPhoneX's silly screen ratio was making it so that Sheepy would leap right off the top of the screen.
I've fixed that. .. I think!
Although, in all honesty, I'll need someone with an iPhoneX to double check it.
But otherwise, that's the fix, and that's it uploaded and submitted for review.
I give up.
Over the past 30-odd hours, I've tried a boatload of languages, and although all seem capable in their own particular ways, none of them seem to do everything that I need them to do.
I'm still annoyed that GLBasic doesn't do sound-pitching.
An Amiga 1000 could do that in 1985.
Tackling errors as they come.
I fix and I tweak every bug.
Sometimes I delete things and start them again,
Smashing code up, like a thug.
The system is changing.
I need a new plan.
At least with iOS,
I know where I am.
