game dev training resources, death mention
I never heard of 3D Buzz or its founder, the late Jason Bubsy, before today, but it seems that the maintainers of the site have decided to put all the training materials they have online for free as part of the shuttering of the business after his death.
let michael jordan play baseball
not because he has earned it,
but because it shall be a human right
and a human sacrament
to attain mastery and become dissatisfied
to miss the life of a beginner
and to make yourself anew
let pagliacci get depressed
let james joyce's amanuensis
reach her full capacity for rhythmic dance
let all of us write solo albums that suck
let's fuck it up
instance meta, future instance block: mastodon.gamedev.place
It's taken me too long to do this, but I'll be blocking mastodon.gamedev.place in a week.
The admin is totally fine with hosting Alex Gleeson, who's a TERF, and I am not comfortable federating with an instance that would support that.
I wanted to gives some heads-up. If you follow or interact with anyone there you may wish to tell them, or may wish to leave this instance.
Reminder: the Decade Jam has started. I’m not sure 10 years will be enough for me to finish a game but I’m in. https://itch.io/jam/decadejam
In 2020, stop gatekeeping #art. Let people enjoy the simple act of grabbing a pack of markers and doodling.
Unlike the rest of the instruments, volume does not equal /volume/ for instrument 6, the noise generator; volume equals "dirtiness". To adjust volume, the sfx has to be put in a custom sfx instrument slot (one of sfx 0-7) and that custom sfx instrument has to be played at a desired volume.
Hopefully explanation of that will get added to the manual at some point.
ooh, hydra book!
"Hydra is an analog-synth-like coding environment for real-time visuals."
@lorenschmidt Ah, I think I know the answer to this one, and it's a fun piece of ambiguous wording.
What you're looking for is "Tool's Size." "Brush radius (Editor)" is for controlling the radius property in the brush editor dialog.
Hope that helps!
Welcome @cake_admin !
Hope you like it here, let me know if you have any questions.
Game Making Tools is a few things, but mostly a wiki for amateur game/vidcon makerers.
1/2 admin accounts, handles most of the adminy announcement stuff :)
Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
Please read the rules before signing-up :)
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
