Absurd Porting FJORDS Devlog Entry #15


Day 15 Progress

  • Pressing K was added, and works great except for a small issue.
  • Added sound checking code, so
  • Added sound checking code to Kyle’s “game” object, which means certain noises now stop playing when you leave rooms, like they should have in the first place.
  • Nightly builds!

Unimplemented major features, or features I left half programmed.

  • no saving of ini data whatsoever. Sorry!
  • Magic doesn’t work in a 1×1 area, instead of impaling yourself in the ground, you jump up to the nearest empty space.
  • No BOMBS
  • No GHOST
  • WARP still shows all objects and doesn’t have the color flash or anything.
  • No K screen, when you fall too far and enter the end of the game world.

Recurring Bugs (newest bugs listed first.)

  • Levels display stacked when the game isn’t run from VS (the nightly builds).
  • When leaving the first room with a boat, you explode as if you pressed K.
  • FIXEDSound doesn’t function correctly while in the pizza zone
  • FIXEDWhen leaving rooms sometimes, a second player will be created on a ferry falling from the ceiling.
  • Discovered a bug where if you are standing on the edge of a block and press A and then press the direction which will make you fall off the block, you will ride up with the hook as your head. This is a collision issue.
  • FIXEDFalling and Hookshot break in small places.Hookshot is intended to work like this, sayeth Kyle
  • FIXEDPlayer never faces left. No idea why. The code is there for it to draw flipped, but it doesn’t?
  • Player falls at half speed. ?????
  • Everything else.

    My typical use case is detifinely not about zooming images. There are numerous pages that are apparently designed for 800 by 600 displays, which would fill an 800 by 600 display horizontally, but leave large margins at the sides on a 1024 by 768 display, which is the resolution I use. The forums at forums.secondlife.com is an example of one such. There are other pages that have lots of blank space on the sides because someone misinterpreted an inconclusive study on visual perception and a lot of designers have made the mistake of basing their designs on this erroneous thinking. The Linden Lab blog comments are an example of this.It is only very rarely that I want to enlarge just a portion of the screen. I enlarge the entire screen in Opera on sites that have the blank space on both sides, this makes the content as large as can be on my screen, greatly improving the readability of the text, which is what I want enlarged. Unlike just increasing the text size, the page looks normal and properly proportioned, just bigger, meaning I get the benefit of spending as much money as I can afford on big monitors. I use this nicely centered page zoom a lot, many hours a day, every day, on many different web sites. I don’t have to scroll horizonatlly because of the way Opera does the zoom. There are tons of sites that have the let’s only use 1/2 to 2/3 of the width of the screen appearance on a 1024 by 768 screen. Practically everyone gets presbyopia. Thus there’s a big potential userbase for properly centered page zoom. Only people who’ve used Opera’s would know how nice it is. I’ve tried image zoom extensions, they are of very little use to me.
