Battle Gem Ponies DevLog #191 (Not a Single Thing Checked Off the List)

Yotes Games



     I am shocked at how quickly this Wednesday snuck up on me. Guess that's a good thing. Another week closer to my short term goals, but on the other hand there's still next to no progress being made on BGP. So caught up in the daily routine and so mentally drained after hours of office work, it's incredibly easy to understand how people fall into "the grind" trap you know? 

    Just wanna drag yourself home, flop down somewhere (preferably with pizza at hand) and just watch stuff, endlessly scroll social media, wish you were happier and doing awesome things, and fall asleep. But I gotta stay on track. Even if it's just 2-3 hours at a time. Even if these little tasks like"Just write 8 YouTube scripts already!" end up taking forever, just like every other small task self-assigned.

 Pretty sure I'm waist deep in burnout, but not in any particular situation to be able to aliviate that stress, so... Onward! Here's today's blog: https://www.yotesgames.com/2018/10/battle-gem-ponies-devlog-191-not-single.html

      I have a specific need to launch a game from an existing app.  Has anyone come across a game engine that can be built in this way?  Any help would be appreciated.
      Thank you!

      Hello, everyone. There ara a little misunderstood, which I've resieved after spending some time working on a little bit more complex UI than I did usually. So my misunderstanding: what should I use to update from one widget to another: "Remove all widgets" or "Set widget visibility" or there is not much difference beetwen them in perfomance?

      Hello everyone! I´m new here so please forgive me any nonsense i could say, if i say any. 
      So, currently i´m studying game design to start doing games. So far so well. I want to be a game designer and creative director if posible. The thing is that, from there, i don´t know what else to do. Like, when i´m done with the game design course, what things can i add? 
      I must clarify: Besides game design, i write, so i have that covered. I like to illustrate and do concept art, but here´s the problem, i´m not very good at those things. I don´t really like programming, but i´d like to know a bit about it, just to... know. Or be able to use some engine by myself, like Unity or Unreal or etc. 
      I know this is kinda confusing, but that´s because i´m confused as well. Want to add things to do my own proyects. What´s the standard path to follow after game design? Should i go with art and illustration? Or do programing first?   Or any other things you can tell me? 
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello everyone,
      I have a strange problem. I have been coding C++ with CodeBlocks 17.12 using SDL 2.0.8 and SDL Image 2.0.3. I have been using MingGW and the GCC GNU compiler. When I run my app in CodeBlocks under either Debug or Release it runs fine, but when I go to my Release output folder and double click my EXE, it merely opens and immediately closes. I have the SDL and SDL image dlls in the folder with my release build, and I'm not getting errors that any dlls are missing. This is strange!
      Help would be much appreciated,
      Thank you,
