A new CRPG is born - Milestone 1

12.03.2008 by azarai in game development | pygame | python

In an earlier post i wrote that i am going to code a simple CRPG with pygame. With an unknown destination, but it will probably be an very interesting way. Yeah i know one should spend a bit more on thinking about the whole game, gameplay and so on, but i'd like to tame some of the technical issues prior. Luckily Kerim joined and i don't have to do it all by my own :-)

Ever since Azarai switched to Django and Markdown i spent too much time trying to make a blog entry look nice. I don't know why but it definetly is too much for me type in some syntax, save and then have to refresh a browserview.

So ... as usual .. the lazy half of me just said: let some tool do that for you. So i created "Markie", my small WYSIWYG-Markdown editor.

Consolidating files through recursive copy

27.01.2008 by kerim in python

Since I started on a proposal for a new customer it really has been one of the most annoying tasks to keep up with his documents. Every week there are around 200 MB to 1 GB of files and although the customer may think that his hirarchy of directories is fine, i think differently. So I have several hundred files of "potential" interest hidden in over 8 GB of nested directories by now. All i know is that they and either with .txt, .doc or *.pdf

Strategic game programming is a fascinating subject, that I have been attracted to for several years now. I always wanted to implement my own chess program but that seemed to complicated for the beginning. Therefore I started with Reversi and a simple minimax alogrithm on my beloved Amiga. Then I turned to chess and learned about more sophisticated variations of the minimax.
