My basecode For LD48_13 is largely the same as the past two competitions. I have updated it a little:
- Classes are now organized into the package net.lonestranger.common, game and network.
- Network isn’t really too useful yet. The only class that exists in it is called Report. It’s job is to take a string of data and send it via POST to a website, where it can be digested as fit. For example, sending scores back to a central repository.
- You can take jpg screenshots by hitting F10. They are named based on the current date/time and dumped into the working directory.
Here is the link to download it.
I didn’t really list my goals in my declararion post a few days ago, so I’ll do it now.
Keep the same art style as last time. I sketched things out on paper and scanned them in so I could colorize. Keeping with bold colors and gradients is probably what I’ll do.
KISS – Keep It Simple, Stupid! Making something too complex is just a recipe for a headache at 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
Make useful additions to the basecode that can be used in later competitions. The screenshot stuff is an example of something I did previously that helps out a lot.
Finish most of the work by Saturday night so I can spend Sunday polishing.
Ok, time to finish work and then I’m off to Thanksgiving, The Sequel, but I’ll check in after 8pm Pacific tonight to see the theme I need to start thinking about. I expect everyone to be in FULL CODE MODE when I get back. 😉
