So near yet so far.


Good news:
I've been making a determined effort to finish this project and probably have about 4 hours to go (basically just putting in a few sounds)
Bad news:
The computer just died. Can't afford a new one.

C'est la vie and all that bollox.

Died died? What's wrong with it? Short of a fried motherboard, surely part of it could be replaced to fix it? Or is it a laptop? :/

Oh what!

This is dreadful news. Are we cursed?

Have you got a raspberry pi?

I have to say it felt a bit like a curse. But I am not giving up I'm determined to finish it now. I've got my hands on a windows laptop I can use it to finish this project at least. Then I'll look into getting a raspberry pi with some of the profits.

..fried motherboard.. probably that. There was deifinitely a bit of supernatural lightning involved, In hindsight, perhaps I shouldn't have put in teleporters.

I've got a spare pi if you have an sd card. Might even have a spare sd i could setup for you with everything ready to go

Ultimately a dedicated pi would be great. what size SD card would be good.

In the meantime the emergency is over. The windows comp was a pain in the but to use butt It forced me to dig out another old Linux machine which I've now managed to set up. It seems to work fine.

Not sure which pi i can lay my hands on but a 4gb micro sd (with adapter) would be fine. You know yourself div doesn't take up much space

I reckon I can afford a pi. My problem would be setting it up. It would basically be a DIVBox. If you'd be willing to help me set it up I'll start looking into getting the gear.

I could create a pi image if you like, just dd it to the sd card, and boot it.

Might even have one already but trivial if i don't. maybe that would be a useful thing to do regardless.

I'm going to do that either today or Sunday (I'm out tomorrow) and I'll send you a link.

All done.


Developing a two player game in isolation will only get a person so far.

I've now got this game to a generally stable and playable state. God knows how many bugs are lurking in there but as far as I can tell by playing with myself it's mostly running OK. There's a convenient reset button if bugs do crop up.

Anyway I'm putting it up on game over now and, other than in the unlikely event that people actually play it and discover bugs or maybe even have suggestions for gameplay, I'd say I'm pretty much finished with it.

It's been a lot of fun and I'd definitely recommend blogging a project here. I really appreciate all the comments from you folks. Lets hope that more people take it up and the DIV community thrives.
