Stuck on problems that don't concern me...

Sign in to follow this  


Ok, I've been looking back on my progress and I've realised that 9 out of 10 times, I get stuck on a problem that doesn't concern me at the moment. For example, just the other day I was working on my GUI and got stuck on a problem with stretching (for the titlebar, sides, etc.). So I decided to write a 2D library. Then I realised that there was absolutely no point since I DIDN'T NEED TO STRETCH. My GUI is going to be like Baldur's Gate (static) with buttons. Before that I got stuck on some problems with writing a 3D math library. Hmm... last time I checked I'm writing 2D games right now, not 3D.

I've even caught myself celebrating because I figured something out that, again, didn't pertain to me. YAY I WROTE A 3D MODEL LOADER!!!

I've got a little under 2 months to finish my game (if I decide to enter it into 4E4) and this is just annoying me.

Has anybody else done this?

Yeah, happens to me all the time, but unfortunately for me, it usually results in me postponing my current project and starting a new one that I can use my newly created 'toys' in. I must have 10 unfinished games on my hardrive because of that tendancy.

Only 10!? I started programming RPGs about 4 years ago. I haven't finished one yet (mostly because of this.) But its good to know that I'm not the only one.

LOL, at least you have the excuse that RPGs are complicated, I've got no excuse for having 5 unfinished Asteroids clones on my hard drive [grin].
