Been doing college (again) and also working on a cool mobile game. I intend to find a publisher for this one. https://twitter.com/Onronc/status/1159227232688070657

YO EQWANOX I FOLLOWED YOUR YOUTUBE!!
 ;D 8)
I've not used Silver Creator for years as I've gotten into other game engines. Been programming up a storm. Participated in a local game jam this weekend.
Here's our weird little 2-day project that I helped make:
https://rpcxdr.itch.io/dig-around-your-own-brain
I made the 2D portion and my friends made the 3D and helped hook both together. Search for coffee by wiring up your own brain.

Also, here's the game jam's page with everyone's game submissions:
https://itch.io/jam/nm-game-jam-2019/entries

I've also started a Discord server (it's what all the cool kids are doing these days). I'm close to releasing my second mobile game. Come hang out, we have custom emotes and a memes page.

I hang out on Connors's discord!
My wife also made a discord I hang out on: https://discord.gg/CQHj27
Discord name: MattF#9537

@Connors, that is a unique game. Good work!

@EqwanoX, I watched your car video. Cool car. Also watched the playing games with friends animation, that's really well done.

I've been learning the Rust programming language. It's blazing fast, faster than C and C++ in some cases. It is also memory safe and doesn't require manual memory management. Also compiles to all platforms and even compiles to webassembly. So the program can run in the browser on a webpage.
So I'm working on porting QoM to Rust. The plan is to run it on Mac/Windows/Linux and web browser. People are also working on iOS/Android Rust support. My ultimate goal with this project is to make a full game with minimal tooling/work and have it run everywhere with maximum performance. I'm using Tiled to make the world so I don't create custom tools for world creation.

Oooh, its it going to have continuous maps instead of the 7x7 screens?
It's awesome that you're still putting work into letting people play QoM.

This looks ace Gan :) I'll have to finally get around to signing up to Discord so we can catch-up sometime.

I haven’t decided. I may keep it true to the original QoM but Tiled makes it very easy to have continuous maps.

Sounds great!

Thanks Mike!

Update: Pausing QoM Rust-browser re-write for now. Kinda got stuck on making the UI. UI in Rust is still young and time consuming to make.

Instead, I'm trying to make a quick and dirty hand drawn RPG in a no-build-tools vanilla JS environment. Kind of like my own personal game making dare.
I'm making the UI and windows first. My reasoning is, if I made the full UI, then I just have the fun part left- the game engine.

Woah! Can't believe I remember my password. Randomly thought about the site today decided to chip in:

Where are you in life?
When I was active here, I was really thinking of perusing a career in Computer Science. I 180'd hard late in Highschool and decided to peruse wildlife conservation.  Strangely though, it all came full circle. Turns out every career needs some computer skills, and now I use R to do lots of statistics and data science. I was able to learn it pretty fast because of all my time figuring out code here, and it really helped my career in the long run.

Has anything exciting happened to you?
About to finish my Master's in Wildlife! Writing my thesis now on a population model looking at endangered turtles.
What are your hopes and wishes?
If I can land a job as a wildlife biologist, I'd be so happy. It's a very competitive field, but my computer skills distingish me from the pack, wish me luck!
Make any accomplishments?
Recently, I conducted the most through search for a species of endangered turtle in my state, and I'm working on publishing my results
What are you going to do next?
Survive the pandemic hopefully

Hope everyone is doing well! This board was so formative for me in middleschool/highschool.
This Cannot be, NOOOOOOOO!!!!

I don't think we have met. Sound like a interesting degree. How do endangered turtles behave?
I dropped out of school after a few months of college. Due to money, social anxiety and mental health.

Howdy folks! Nice to see some of the old gang still knocking about :) Congrats on the career choice Gnome, it sounds like a wonderful use of your time and talents.

I’ve been involved in children’s playwork for a few years now, and they’ve been some of the most enjoyable years of my life. The job basically entails making children happy through creative activities, such as drawing, writing stories, making board games, composing music, performing dramas, and all sorts of other cool stuff. I feel kind of guilty getting paid to have fun, and I’ve looked forward to going to work every day for almost 5 years. I don’t even like taking holidays!

Today the kids played some of my old GameMaker games for the first time, and they really enjoyed them. They were excitedly designing their own game by the end of the session. We’re gonna crack open a new GM project tomorrow :)

Lovely to hear from you guys! Glad to hear people are keeping well.

Nice to meet you too, Johna! I’m excited about the Rougelike game you’re working on. The progress you’ve made seems excellent! :D

thanks. I have 2 projects right now. My Rouge-like 'Tales of Legend" and Realm Quests. Both are going well.
