Merry Prankster Games > D3DX tribulations

Posted on 11 July 2016 - 07:19 AM

I've been led down a rathole the past couple of weeks. First, I updated to Visual Studio 2015 (from VS2012), for reasons that I now don't remember at all. So, after I recompiled TotAW I decided I'd better check that it worked again. No problem. 
But, then I decided I would check if things worked OK on Windows 7. Microsoft provides a nice sample of vi...

Merry Prankster Games > Cool Bug

Posted on 16 June 2016 - 06:11 AM

I've been mucking around with Temple of the Abyssal Winds lately, fixing minor issues and such. While doing this, I found a cool bug worthy of sharing.

The bug is, cast an attribute buffing spell on the main character, say "Strength". This should work if you drink a po...

Merry Prankster Games > So... What Now?

Posted on 02 June 2016 - 11:05 AM

So, after several years of coding and content creation, Temple of the Abyssal Winds is "done". Get it here: http://prankster.com/totaw !

So, now what do I do with myself? It's a bit of a weight off my shoulders to know that I accomplished what I wanted to, and I could...

Merry Prankster Games > March Already?

Posted on 03 March 2016 - 07:45 AM

Man, I suck at this blogging thing. 
Status update: Chapter 5 is looking pretty good, and I'm getting through the content creation for Chapter 6. I may just wait to release Chapter 5 along with Chapter 6 because, well, I'm lazy, I guess. 
Now, something about TotAW development. So, I'm working on Chapter 6, the town area. In Chapter 6, you are n...

News: Chapter 5 is code complete and ready for testing. Based on past performance, probably about a month before it comes out. 
Here's a picture of the second map from Chapter 5:

Merry Prankster Games > Not Dead Yet

Posted on 11 January 2016 - 03:55 PM

Sorry about the lack of posting... vacation ate up some time, and I guess I just didn't feel like posting. But, never fear, I've been busy squirreling away on TotAW. 
Chapter 5 needs just a couple more days for the content to be finished. One more map to draw, and some actor-to-actor chatter to write. Then, test chapter 5, and move on to the final ch...

Merry Prankster Games > This ever happened to you?

Posted on 22 October 2015 - 02:05 PM

So I'm testing out Temple of the Abyssal Winds, the build I've got in review in the app store. Just to be sure it works properly before I release v3.0 on the unsuspecting public. I'm playing an archer; I like to try out as many different character types when I play, just to see how viable they are. As I get along in the game, I go shopping, and see a bow...

Merry Prankster Games > Nice!

Posted on 22 September 2015 - 06:12 AM

rpg-site.com adds an entry to their site for Temple of the Abyssal Winds:

http://rpg-site.com/temple_abyssal_winds.html

And gives it positive thoughts. Though they seem to do that about most (all?) RPGs, I'll take it!
