Fully Animating the Player

So my work with Processing turned out to be immediately helpful in my XNA work; one of the things I did with Processing was create a sort of player that had a few different states with corresponding animations, so I basically ported that idea over to my Ne+ player. Now I have walking under its corresponding animation, and sprites for standing, jumping, falling, and crouching. I think that crouching is turning out to be pointless... Read more


For All Mankind

Having always been interested in seeing the depths of space, there’s really no comparable experience to watching For All Mankind. It’s a near-perfect documentary on the subject, featuring over an hour of footage selected from NASA’s incredible archives. Perhaps it’s my own fault for never seeking out such a thing before now, but I never expected to see such a great collage of ventures to the moon. We know that it happened, and we saw... Read more


Processing Complete

I do think that it’s a worthwhile venture, but it’s kind of a solution waiting for a problem sort of thing. There is potential; I just have to come up with some ideas on how to utilize it. Now that I’ve finished it though, it’s... Read more


Proccesing cont.

The new project I’ve started in Processing is going extremely well. I did have a bit of a rough time last night; I stayed up until 3AM figuring out how to make a project that would work in both Eclipse and the Processing editor, as well as provide me with a workable workflow. I still haven’t really figured it out; basically I need to keep the library I’m developing for it updated in two places.... Read more


Processing

I just started playing with Processing, which seems to be a really cool Java-based tool for quickly writing simple applets and applications with a visual element. I have an idea of something that I’d like to try doing with it, so I’m going to grab Eclipse, configure a little environment, and see what I can do with it. I coded a little text function that writes character by character over time in basically no time... Read more
