Programming: Beanie Fighter

Posted by llemarie on March 23, 2008

Dancing NinjasLive greetings from Breakpoint!

After a year of on and off development, with serious on development in the last few months, I finally got to submit my new 96KB game entry for Breakpoint. It ended up in a huge anti-climax, when nobody else submitted an entry and the 96KB game competition had to be canceled. The game was shown in glorious 12m wide 1080p though, in front of a great crowd!

I also gave a seminar, called Multicore Mayhem, presenting a technique for distributing code to the available CPUs. The video will be available on the Breakpoint website after the event.

Update: Due to a technical problem during the recording, the video is not available unfortunately…

Programming: Updated Teenage Mutant Ninja Puppets

Posted by llemarie on November 11, 2007

I’ve received a few requests to post the full version of Teenage Mutant Ninja Puppets as shown in the YouTube video I posted a few months ago.

This version has the high resolution textures and character position editor enabled.

Update: Network support now works and the editor can save the current pose of the ghost (the pale guy) by pressing ‘R’ on the keyboard, then during the game you can use the pose by pressing ‘T’.

Download it free here (5MiB).

Software: LeDimmer – Unclutter your screen

Posted by llemarie on November 1, 2007

LeDimmer is a small Windows application (<200KB) that sits in the system tray and simply dims the screen around the foreground window. The numerous advantages include being able to focus on the task at hand, finding the window in focus at first glance even on multi-monitors, and it even looks nice. General Windows usage is not changed at all: click or alt-tab into a dimmed window and it brightens into focus.

You can specify a bitmap as the dimming picture to get a nice glossy effect on your screen, embed your company logo, admire your dulcine, etc…

It couldn’t be simpler to use: start it, it sits in the system tray, quit it with the tray menu or the shortcut ctrl-shift-q. That’s it…

LeDimmer works on Windows 2000, XP and Vista. Grab it free from the home page.

Comments, feature requests and bug reports are appreciated.
