As some of you may know, Arrowhead announced HELLDIVERS at Gamescom in Cologne this week (arrowheadgs.com).Because of the work that has gone into preparing for this announcement progress on Harmony has been slow for the last few weeks.
While I don’t really have anything to show I have still managed to find time here and there to make tweaks and fixes to some issues.
Over two months since I said I would post something “soon”. Summer happened, and with it, vacation. Now that I’m back I’m itching to get more work done on Harmony.
First order of business is to show what little work I’ve gotten done on particle effects. Really all I have so far is spawning particles with limited lifetime, random position offset, velocity, and collision.
Double Rainboom was released yesterday and I just watched it for the third time. Words fail to describe how mush I love this fandom.
For those who don’t know, Double Rainboom is a fan-made 20 minute episode based on My Little Pony. The project was spearheaded by Zachary Rich who started the project as part of his college curriculum. After 54 weeks it was finally released yesterday and it is awesome.
So… yeah. I just wanted to share that. Check it out at doublerainboom.com. As far as continuity goes this episode fits anywhere between season 2 episode 3 and season 3 episode 13.
So after reinstalling my OS, installing a bunch of drivers, software and updates… The game still wouldn’t run in Debug-mode. After a LOT of googling and double-checking I finally found the culprit. At least this time I could use System Restore to go back and fix it.
Computers are strange. I can program real-time 3D visualization, perform asynchronous computing, and communicate over a network. Yet sometimes I have no fucking clue what’s going on.
Anyway, the short story is: I need to reinstall my OS, so I can’t post the video I promised just yet.
