  1. Going multithreaded...

    Well, after having dabbled on this topic many times before - I decided I'd do AMD's latest chips a favour and make my code benefit from all that threaded goodness they can offer . So, I dove into the code archive and found some bits and bobs that had been gathering dust for a almost 2 years now... Turns out that since then a few bits were depreceated with FPC 2.6.0 . So I changed all the Execute() calls to Start() and hey presto, the old code had some life breathed back into it.

  2. Back into development - why breaks aren't a good idea...

    Well, as promised, I'll be putting a few more things up after having come back into the development scene. I'm pretty much jumping ship with my LD entry - despite it showing good progress, something I wont go into the details of .

    I see lots has changed now I'm compiling more stuff (and a lot of older stuff to make some new stuff work ). Especially on the depreceated front. I've got these in audio, threads and just about everywhere else. Even in bits of code I didnt even knew existed ...

  3. Back into games and... stuff...

    Well its sure been a while since we've seen a blog post round here, and even longer since I last went up and wrote something...

  4. Ludum Dare 23 anybody?

    I know we have the PGD challenge on at the moment... But who doesn't like a blitz paced game dev jam? I know I have a lot of work on my entry to do still... But if I'm honest I've now sort of got that - I hate looking at my code a little since its virtually all the code I've done recently... And so, I decided I needed a break - but one where I didnt fall out of touch with game code... A break called LD23.

    Just to give you guys a heads up - the themes are looking absolutely awesome so ...

  5. Helios - and low level pascal

    Well, looks like time is going to be on my side for the next few weeks so I figured I'd just drop a line in to PGD for the summary of whats been going on these past weeks (months!?)...

    Internet in the UK - Plastic box routers that look like they should contain pop tarts (bar the cat poopin magic rainbows) seem to perform as such and as a result the faithful old Livebox 1.1 has had to be barred from the house after 5 of them failed in weeks of each other - Orange and BT blamed our cables ...
