  • Today, I tried using a parallax map on my game. It only reminded me of how much I hate such technique.

    Why do you hate it?
    @Darth Equus I hear you, parallax mapping can look great but making the maps is such a headache! Not to mention how it bloats your project folder.

    @The Stranger Larger size, more work if I need to change something, and it feels like extra work for something I can do with standard tile maps. Wanted to give it a fair chance, but no, it's just not for me.
    I somehow detest parallax mapping. Beyond not allowing one to make changes vs a regular map, I don't know why.
    That's why we have a tile-based editor. You don't have to use parallax mapping if you don't want to. Sure there are some things parallax mapping makes better, but a good tile mapper can also get great results.
    It's important to keep the file that you used to create the parallaxed map. That way you can go back and make changes whenever you want. It's a bit more tedious but it's just what you gotta do. But, I understand where you're coming from too. Each to their own. :)

Ho, ho, ho and mwah, ha, ha. It appears that I will be getting a leg up on the inclusion of Krampus in the 2023 Game Jam. We arrived in Orlando, FL yesterday and my wife found a Krampus Festival for us to attend tonight! Maybe I will be going home with a Krampus!
I was planning on getting new character management feature into Character Generator, but my recent illness has delayed this somewhat. I will try and get it done today (which would be a miracle) but if not, I will have to complete the whole lot by Tuesday. This should hopefully be fine and all other feature updates should not have their target dates affected.
Everybody: "Hey, weren't you supposed to be making a game"?

I've been watching videos about the videogame streamer Open Hand charity scandal, and the rabbit hole keeps getting deeper. At first it was just a lot of donated money being grossly neglected for years, and now there's a lot of money unaccounted for, which could turn this into a legitimate IRS crackdown.
