The first day I was supposed to start working for gEasy, they tell me they cancelled the contract with their publisher.
Also, soon I’ll start posting some game development articles. I already have some topics planned to start with, like:
– Game states
– Networking (maybe)
Its just some ideas I want to start with. Graphics is out of that list for a while.
I will most probably concentrate on mundane tasks I encountered and learned during the time I worked on Galactic Melee. Those things we don’t think about when we first start a game, but eventually we’ll get to it, like how to manage game states (menu, gameplay, credits, etc), or how to plan the code for a UI screen, which is in fact easy, but for a non-trivial UI screen, you’ll find yourself complicating the code a lot whenever you want to add more functionality.For that, planning with state-diagrams and implementing it with that approach too, made things a lot easier for me.
Anyway, as soon as I start posting those articles, if they are of any interest to you, you can buy me a coffee (read __donation__). You should see a link on the sidebar for that.
