I know. But at least theoretically everyone has one.

A great programmer doesn't have bugs in his games. He has undocumented features.

Why stop at 4? Why not go for 8 or 16? Whip something up with JavaScript or Just BASIC.

That's great, thanks for the update and photos!  I hope you find it comfortable and can sleep well at night on it!

Is it squishy? Or does that happen later? Because the campaign specifically said "squishy".
 
Maybe I don't want to know...
 
Anyway - glad you were able to get it, and I hope you have many blissfully sleep-filled nights on it.


Thanks. It's squishy and it works in the day too. Sleeping in a chair has been making me even more tired than usual, so I just took an almost 4 hour nap on the new bed and I feel like I just got 4 days of sleep. It's so much better than my old bed.

Thanks again to everyone who donated and to those who couldn't donate, but shared a link to the campaign in the hopes that other people would donate.

If you can't stand the heat, get out of the hot tub.

So what's the consensus on touching ourselves while staring lovingly at a signed photo of Todd Rogers? Do we still touch ourselves, but do it with a scowl on our faces or do we throw out his photo and find another hero? There are so many options.

Is every single XM going to be built by hand?


Special orders will be built by foot.

In the future, this will be called "Cheat Shaming" and it will be frowned upon. The average man cheats on his wife and his taxes and most people don't have a problem with it, but it somehow becomes wrong when it comes to video games. Cheating is just another lifestyle choice that is just as valid and harmless as littering or smoking around children. :D

In case anyone wants to know, the bed is supposed to be delivered on February 2, 2018 (Friday). I'll post a photo or three after it's set up.




#3940491 Can someone explain this collision code in detail?

Posted by Random Terrain on Sat Jan 20, 2018 7:09 PM

here I've inserted different collision code and changed the height of player0

 

the code is basically similar

it tests two corners of the player0 for each direction

to see if there's a playfield pixel in the way

 

so for example if you're moving right it tests the top right

corner of player0 against the bottom left of the PFpixel

and the bottom right of player0 against the top left of the PFpixel

 

 

 

I'll be gone for a day or two (more packing and moving), but when I get back, if your code uses less space or cycles or both, I'll update the examples on the bB page.

Sears? Better hurry. :ponder:


Yeah, we'll buy the bed on Monday and they'll close right after that and the bed will never be delivered. :D

I'm in the new place, about ready to go to sleep in my recliner. I was only allowed to carry light stuff so my sister had to bring most of it in herself. One or two more trips in the minivan and just about everything in the house will be at the new place. We seem to have cable, but no Internet.
