Hey Monday peoples, how goes it? Anybody involved in the #LDJAM remember to get the slaughter done.

Afternoon Everybody,

So, It's closer and closer to a few things,

Family Visit
Ludum Dare
My Birthday
End of the Year
End of the Month.

Only three of them I really care about at the moment, I'll let you guess which ones.

hope it's a half decent theme, as I know if the theme is not so good, I
won't have the incentive to do anything (LD People will understand)

Anyways, hope you enjoy the rest of your Monday.

So, this is what I'm at so far, was too late to post last night. Wonder if I'm boring people yet, with my #gamedev and/or #indiedev? :)

Afternoon people.

So, I'm following the tutorials still, got a little bit more done, as you can see. I have to say, graphics make anything look good. (always handy to know a decent graphic artist, the one I know didn't do these graphics, but I know I'll be calling on him from time to time)  I'd imagine if I was just using boxes, it wouldn't look as impressive. It was too late last night to be recording it, converting it, and uploading it (especially after a few southern comforts)

I just wish I had a better GIF recorder/converter, the one I use (like for this video) started at 20mb, then I had to chop a few frames, then I had to convert it down, to get it at 2.2mb just so it loads relatively fast for people.

So, if you know of a half decent GIF recorder that works on Windows 10, that will make the file a pretty as it can, but as small as it can, I'm open for suggestions.

Anyways, I hope you all have a lovely rest of your Sunday.

Still trying to keep my finger in the pie with my #screenshotsaturday - #indiedev has to start somewhere - #gamedev is the ultimate goal.

Evening All, (I sound like the plod there)

"Never give up, never surrender"  I do believe that was from 'Galaxy Quest' back in 1999 (which is nearly 16 years ago people)

So, I go through fits and starts, but I don't give up. I've been chatting to a friend of mine who has been giving me a few pointers (and also going to be getting a few other little bits and bobs for me) but bottom line, he's giving me a little incentive to get back into it.

So, I'm being very basic (excuse the pun) and started on the tutorials again, but these are from an earlier version of the program I'm using.

I just need to remember, I need to walk before I run.

Anyways, I hope you are having a lovely Saturday (or Sunday, based on times)

Time for a another beverage and to get back into it.

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving, so who's jumping on the #BlackFridayDeals, I know I'm not.


With Christmas just around the corner, I'm saving my pennies, I need them to buy gifts for others, not stuff for me. Plus if I was to buy stuff now, it would be less that could be bought for me for Christmas.

So, I'll be avoiding the Black Friday Deals and Shopping, thank you very much!

So, that being said, with Christmas now, just around the corner, have you started shopping? are you already done? The answer is nope for me on both counts.

Hope you all have a lovely rest of your day.

Wishing you all a #HappyThanksgivingEve, just incase I don't have time tomorrow to do a post.


I you live somewhere, you have to take on their traditions, beliefs, rules, etc, etc

So Thanksgiving is one of those things for me, yes, I'm going to enjoy the day off work, but I'm also celebrating the day like every other American.

So, for today, "Happy Thanksgiving Eve", and if I don't speak to you all tomorrow, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. (even thought I will put a status update, saying it, but I probably won't all any speel <–look it up in the urban dictionary below it)

For anybody who doesn't know what Thanksgiving is, then please click the link below to be taken to a Wiki page to tell you all about it.

Enjoy the rest of your day people. (Oh, and there was no particular reason I picked the picture, it just made me giggle)

So what you all currently listening too? If anything, it's your #TuesdayTune - Is it mellow, fast, pop.......

Hey Peoples,

I was going to try to get something trending, I was going to say 'TuesdayTuneDay' but I see that #TuesdayTune is already being used.

Makes you think, how do to get something trending? do you really have to be popular? were do all the trends come from?

Have a ponder on that one. :)

Hope you all have a lovely Tuesday, enjoy your day.

So we all need #mondaymotivation, what will yours be today? When asked to put #BlackFridayIn3Words could you? Big Spends Day?

Hey All,

So, I know thanksgiving is around the corner, and I also know ORPD (and probably KPD) said that they would increase their presence, I didn't realize how much.

On the way to work, on my side of the road (during my 20 minutes commute) I saw two people that had been pulled over, and I saw two police cars just sitting there (I was surprised I saw them, driving past them at 120mph…. joking). So that is four on my side. On the other side, I saw one pulled over and two sitting there, so, seven lots of police. (oh and don't worry, I wasn't speeding)

My issue is (and I know this is a little unfair, as we always forget about the emergency services working on national holidays, fire, ambulance, police, nurses, etc) will they have that many on Thursday, when there is more chance of people being out in their cars under the influence?

Anyways, I hope you all have a lovely start to your week (or just a lovely Monday, if your week has technically started)

and Remember, there is a speed limit for a reason.
