drawImage, HTML5, canvas, Firefox and 1 more...
Found the bug I wrote about in the last post: drawImage worked in Chrome, but Firefox showed a white image.

I was completely on the wrong track when I noticed that it sometimes works in Firefox when I call the update function after waiting 5 seconds.

What surprised me was that every time it worked it rendered images wi...

Hi all,

after abandoning the simple game, I may have started something HUGE ... as in: a little too big as the next step, considering that it is just another "getting familiar with XYZ" project.

Eventually I want to create level, normal and depth maps through pcg methods and use WebGL & shaders for interesting 2D lighting effects.

What I have so far is tiles that can penetrate tiles with the same number, tiles that merge when a block collides while same-number-tiles are on top of each...

I am familiarizing myself with JS and HTML5, Canvas first ... not WebGL yet.

The first thing I am trying to do is programming what I had in mind when I heard that there is a combination between Tetris and 2048.
Not sure if the game mechanics will make a lick of sense, but I want to know what it feels like.
