How I do (not) debug my games

I’m writing this because I thought it might be interesting to other programmers. I used this method for about ten years, so it’s pretty sound. I don’t use debugger. Well, I start it sometimes in (mostly futile) hope of getting a better exception stack trace. Or to look at the generated machine code in disassembly [...]

Vacation

I’m leaving on vacation tomorrow, August 20th. I’ll be back on September 10th. I won’t write code, but I’ll sketch out some ideas, monsters etc. for both Arcane Worlds and LEVEL UP! I’m going to get a mobile internet for my tablet there and there should be wifi at the hotel, so I’ll be able [...]

And after 2.5 days of tweaking, I bought it. I’m still not happy with undo/redo cursor movement and other minor issues, but otherwise it’s [...]

Against the Wall

Not that many people read my blog, but still. Against the Wall is an interesting exploration game. I think it has great potential. And now you can support it, since the author has launched a Kickstarter campaign. $10 will get you a copy of the released game, and $20 will provide access to early beta [...]

Some news

I’ve spent a lot of time studying Intel TBB, designing new game loop and dealing with some life issues. LEVEL UP! now runs smooth both with vsync and without it, while updating game logic only 20 times per second. I was afraid of input lag issues, but it looks like they aren’t really noticeable. And [...]
