It's been quite a long time since my last update... I updated the website to 0.10 then to 0.11, with a brand new dashboard, Quickplay with Bombs handicap, Bombs Survivor, Speed Limit Feature. Also, I made some adjustments to the gameplay: 8+ combos are nerfed, B2B system changed a bit and garbage messiness is increased.

Have fun!

Also, yet another Beta Tournament is starting from Monday.  ;D

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz 6-Core @3.75GHz
8GB DDR4-3000 RAM
Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
MSI B350M MORTAR Micro ATX AM4
250GB SSD
1TB HDD

I built this in March 2018, was going for a mid-range build that could do heavier processing tasks and gaming than my ageing laptops could do. The case is a Fractal Design Focus G Mini (Black). This was during the time graphics cards and RAM prices were high up there, thought about a 1050TI, but am glad I went with the 1060.

My current phone is a Huawei Honor 10, also bought last year (mid-range version of the P20)

Right now I'm using a battle-scarred Acer Chromebook R13 as my main driver. I bought it on a whim because my stuff tends to regularly blow up and my Debian laptop tried my patience one too many times. It proved to be both resilient and surprisingly versatile, especially since crostini and its Debian containers became available on it. It punches way above its weight for a fanless, quad-core ARM64, 13-inch laptop with 12 hours of battery.

My normal computer is a Ryzen 1800X with 32 GiB of RAM, 512 GB of SSD and a 1440p display, used as a beefy programming workstation. Like its owner, it's very effective at its job yet tends to crash every so often. I haven't booted it up in weeks because my Chromebook gets the job done and can sit on my lap.

I also have a bunch of other computers, but nothing really noteworthy nor recently used.

Not really my computers, but I do co-maintain a 5-rack datacenter at my job among other things. Our latest acquisition is a Dell PowerEdge R7425 with 64 cores, 192 GiB of RAM and 3x 2 TiB SSDs, soon to be used as a build machine. It's ludicrously powerful, especially since I've banned VMs on it and decreed only Docker containers shall be used. Being able to automatically invoke pristine Jenkins worker containers on-demand on it is just icing on the cake.

Well, we made a little video to explain it last weekend and it really took off since then :) (Don't ask me who, I'm under NDA, sign up to find out :))



(Fun fact: If you watch GuizDP, you might recognize Jerome in that video xD)

I have like 5 computers in my room cause I've been taught I should carry no less than 5 computers at all times, like a sensible person. They're all more or less s***ty and probably wouldn't run Crysis.

Main computer:

CPU: Intel Core i5 2,7 GHz
RAM: 14 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB
Displays: 19" Samsung SyncMaster 950b CRT 1600x1200 + 27" iMac (mid-2011) 2560x1440
OS: macOS Sierra 10.12

Alt computer:

CPU: Pentium E2220 2,4 GHz
RAM: 2 GB DDR2
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 2 GB
Display: some 35" Sony TV, 1080p
OS: Arch Linux 4.20 (lol)

Alt alt computer:

Model: Apple //c
Display: either a green monochrome CRT or it's plugged to the above TV

Alt alt alt computer:

Model: Raspberry Pi 3 B+
Display: some 5" 800x480 thing I got off some Chinese site I dunno

I thought it would be cool to see what others have as computer. In my case, nothing fancy, as I've been using the same PC for over 9 years, but it got recent upgrades and the GPU was upgraded 4 times.


Processor: Intel Core i7 860 @ 2.8 GHz
RAM: 8 GB DDR3
Storage: 250 GB SSD & 1 TB HDD
GPU: 4 GB NVidia Geforce GTX 1050 TI
OS: Windows 10 Pro

Since the SSD update and Windows re-install, my old computer is running so much faster. I also got a laptop, which is a dual-core around 2.6 GHz, with 6 GB RAM and a 600 GB hard drive. It's slow but I keep it for the time being as it can be handy when I invite people home or for emulation.

A long-standing bug causing the amount of gold obtained from kills to be incorrect most of the time is being fixed right now. Basically, under the old system, the amount of gold gained per kill was directly tied to the total amount of damage the enemy took before dying, rather than their max HP, resulting into an unintentional "bonus gold feature" that caused lots of problems when offensive items were used.

Some enemy gold amounts were adjusted after fixing the bug.

Also, all item shops are now called Cears (in reference to Sears).

Nice game! I like the color fades and extra effects as much as the gameplay itself. Good to see other Pico8 devs here.

Well I've forgotten to post updates here and the language has completely changed so yay. Most recent update post.

I'm thinking of picking up this project again. I finally wrote documentation for Ask. I'm trying to keep the documentation understandable for someone with only a marginal programming ability (i.e. may have touched a C-based programming language or similar in the past or just started.)

I'm looking for feedback on this documentation (suggestions via post, ping, or PR are welcome!)

I'm also looking for clean (as clean as you can get with this language >.>) demo programs.

You can easily relocate your input (In lieu of input commands, I'm using the "modify this program with input values" technique) to the top of the program using Skip commands. I created a trivial multiplication program here. It's a model Village program, about as clean as it gets. I'm playing with the idea of named labels at some point, so that users viewing without line numbers don't have to count. You can just load it into the interpreter though.

Code: [Select]
Skip to line 22.
