My posts at <a href="https://yoyodyne.games/">https://yoyodyne.games/</a> will all be in <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kayfabe">kayfabe</a> but I figure I'll use this space as a sort of development blog.</p> <p><strong>What I learned</strong></p> <ul> <li>I hate Lua's 1-indexed arrays.</li> <li>Accidentally calling <code>music</code> inside the draw loop instead of emits a static tone (presumably as the music tries to play over and over?).</li> <li>I love the system overall, but couldn't handle the editor. I edit in <code>vim</code>/<code>vscode</code> with vim mode all day and could not get the hang of using the editor. Still working on a better workflow.</li> <li>Time spent: maybe 6 hours? Did a lot of learning on this one since it was the second or third cart I'd ever attempted.</li> </ul> https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=51956 https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=51956 Fri, 10 Mar 2023 05:57:01 UTC
