Admittedly, I haven't seen much action in the game programming world in the past six months - a combination of full time school and full time work will do that to you. Recently I was able to snag some version of Visual Studio and fire up my old projects. After beating back (with a big stick) many linker mixups, I was able to get them in running condition again.
The code, after six months of not seeing it, recieved a response of 'did I really write that?' It's all kinds of ugly. I'm in the process of cleaning up some of the darker coners of my strategy game...it actually still runs (and well I might add), although I'm sure I'll find some way to bork it up soon enough.
I have had a very strong desire to write a particle physics app/game. I don't particularly care about the presentation, I just want to try out some algorithms and mess with in-code acceleration, velocity, and various other forms of basic object physics. Never done it before (short of a ghetto precipitiation thing), so we'll see how it goes. I might have to dust off my dinosaur of a physics book from high school.
In the 'real world', I am continuing to work at my church, mostly coding PHP and doing server upkeep. It really is a blast, I'm having a lot of fun with it (I get to write code too heh). Finals are all this week for school, so I must get going.
Cheers to whomever suffered that small novel.
