And it’s going to be late…

After losing several hours of work due to a hard drive hiccup ( annoyingly while I was backing up the code to SVN at the time ) I won’t be able to finish this within the 48 hours.. I can’t even release anything just now as it’s currently very broken. :(

The code I lost was most of the refactored state machine – which worked properly! So I’ve been having to rewrite that again, and it’s not pretty.. specially seeing as it’s not working as well as it was.
I shall be continuing this throughout the week when I get back from work, so I’m hoping to have it finished by the end of the week.. though if I was to restart it, I’d be writing an actual pixel detection routine as this tilecheck system is just hideous!

Once it’s done, I’ll write up a post mortem of what went right, and what shot me in the bum.
Here’s a picture of it’s current state ( clicky for full screen ):
A Small Army of Quirks
That’s 256 Quirks running around a screen area of 1024×768.. it’s now got a dynamic playfield so if you set the config file to any ( reasonable ) resolution, it’ll create a playfield big enough for you.

That’s it just now.. as a warm up to LD15, it’s highlighted a few issues that I’ll need to resolve to take part properly… but it’s been fun anyway :)
Apologies that I couldn’t finish in time, but I’ve had a lot of good feedback from this so far, so I’ll try get it done throughout the week.
