Hi, I'm Kevin, I teach people how to program for the NES/Famicom in Assembly. Interested in old video games and computing history in general. Glad to be here!

mocked up what platfxr ui might look like. the envelope curve is shared unless you toggle "custom", so it's easy to do broad changes. i realized that if i had velocity i would need more controls for velocity related stuff so that might go in an "instrument" version of it. presets will be sort of like in sfxr, but instead of "coin" "powerup" they'll have numbered variations for "rise" "fall" "timbre" etc.

Finding new people to follow is hard for newbies on any platform. I'm hoping that #Trunk can help. What I need is people volunteering to be on lists so newbies can follow a bunch of people right away. Please reply to this post if you agree to be on a list. Feel free to suggest new lists that I haven't thought of. (Living in my own filter bubble, I know!) Please boost!

Also looking for more lists. 😃

I often struggle with "blank page paralysis". Even though I know I can fall back to doing studies, for me studies require attention and intent to actually learn something. Earlier this year I found a subreddit called #redditgetsdrawn where people post selfies (or pet pics) and anyone can just draw them. I find it a nice medium between practice and mindless making of things with the bonus of doing something for someone else. @ me if mastodon has something similar. #digitalart #mastoart

fun fact: adobe has published license keys to macromedia applications that they don't want to host the key server for anymore

Some good games:
Sky bean (where you hold a bean way up in the air, then yell as you move it towards your mouth, then eat it)
Big sky (you go on a swing)
Sky papa (you jump off of a couch on to your papa)

You can now challenge someone to game of #chess over toots! castling.club/ 💪

It's actually a standalone server in the #fediverse, implementing #activitypub all by itself. 😃

I made a short guide for people interested in 3D modeling with Blender. There are workflow suggestions and keyboard shortcuts, give it a look if you need help:

Hi! We are the Nonbinary Wiki, an free online resource about #nonbinary #gender identities. As a wiki, we are a volunteer-powered, not-for-profit project, so I thought that having a Mastodon account would be a good idea.

Check us out here: nonbinary.wiki

IFComp (ifcomp.org/) is now accepting author registrations! IFComp is exciting, and stressful, and there are cash prizes for interactive fiction, and you should read the rules before entering. Yes, this is an ambivalent sort of reminder.
