Tech demos

Looking through the stuff on my website, I realise most of the projects I upload seem to be competition entries, and smaller projects.

I spend a fair amount of time playing with 3D technologies I find interesting, and make a lot of tech demos to try out various ideas that may or may not be used in my games. I'm thinking it would be an idea to upload some of these here just to show off some of the more shiny things I have been writing.

Most of them will be unfinished, and probably a bit buggy. Also, since I work in Linux, there may not be any windows binaries available until I can sort out my cross toolchain.

New Website

Just about finished rewriting my website from scratch. I have kept the general layout and colour scheme, but it now uses some html5 stuff so it may no longer render correctly on old browsers. I have only tested it on Firefox and Opera so far.

Most of the new work had gone into completely re-writing the website back-end which I will probably be the only person to see. I wrote it as a fairly complex web app using jQuery and AJAX. This may hopefully inspire me to upload stuff more often as I only seem to update this site after 48hour competitions.

I have also written a game-tracker to track events from flash games. While I do use Playtomic for some games, I wanted something that does not need any setup to add loads of small games. I still need to write a front-end for this.

Re-writing my website again

Finally got round to rewriting my website over the last couple of days.
This is a major redesign of how the entire thing works, and how it looks. I did write an alternative style sheet to see if I could get it to look like the original.

One main reason for this was due to the fact I have been writing Flash games. Embedding flash into the old setup was horrible and very hacky. The results sill messed up the layout. Another reason was to be able to post updates to the projects, and to allow feedback.
