2012/02/19 (Villainmad): Needing A New Artist Again
So, uh ... I've decided I need to actually hire someone to work on the sprites and graphics, i.e. from TIGSource or IndieGamer or something. The point is, I should get someone who is certain to get things done on a "this is your job" sort of basis, as opposed to asking one of my friends to do it in their spare time and then getting surprised when I haven't heard from them in two weeks and can't even remember the last time they got something done when they said they would.
No new updates since last time, since there isn't anything new enough that's visibly-different; I just thought I'd let everyone know that 1. I'm not dead, 2. I've scrapped the idea of a generic "score" system since there's too many different ways of doing it per game, 3. I've started work on a Replay system,1 which ... generally has fewer problems if all you're doing is a replay-system like that of the Touhou games, 4. I've been hit by another slight motivation slump which might push back the release date a little bit, and 5. I'm basically three-eighths of an inch from getting ready to make the Actual Game Itself, if I only had the graphics for it ...
1For the record, most of the effort so far has gone into implementing my own random number generator, specifically a complementary-multiply-with-carry generator, since C#'s default RNG might be implemented differently on different systems, which means that the same seed will give different results, which is not a happy happenstance as far as replays are concerned ...
