Sadly I had to eject from the cockpit…
This week-end wasn’t so good for any of us at Québarium as each of us already have other plans and thing to do in our todo list.
Since it was a “Jam” we could have kind of cheated and prepare thing in advance and be more prepare (like having a project template for SDL all setup in the IDE). Since I spent time to setup first SDL 1.3 (which I grab the recent snapshots) which in the end I couldn’t get to compile properly (I was really interested to get it to work as it’s now supporting iOS).
Alas it was not to be, I though at first I will have more time yesterday as I was all “alone” (wife went out to university), but then I care thing in the house like setting up xmas decoration. Looking for iOS devs stuff for a friend that had call me in the afternoon for his own project. And today was back to work and just came back home at 18h30… and have a big headache so not in the mood to do any coding.
But I did learn new thing this time, as I got a bit more familiar with VS 2010 C++ Express Edition. Got to setup SDL 1.2 properly (will still take a look at SDL 1.3) which I will make into some kind of template for next time. Found some interesting tools, as I played a bit with Autotracker-C to get some music. And found an interesting character creation tools (http://charas-project.net/charas2/index.php). So not all time is lost and the goal was to have fun.
Hopefully next time we will organize our self a bit better (the same way we did for our participation in a fast demo compo last month, where we have less 1/2 day to build up something with the theme “potato” and hey we end being the #1 demo of that day ;-), you can see our “Poutine” demo here : http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=58079)
See you next time everyone!
And I also wish everyone Happy Holidays! Ho Ho Ho
