Hello all! Wow, it’s been a year since I last updated… it’s been a busy one!
I had some major big things happen this year. I left my current job and got a new much better one. I started commuting by bus instead of driving, which proved to be far less of a problem than I thought it would be. This lead to my next move… to buy a house!
I’ve lived in a townhouse condo for nearly 5 years, and the time has come to move on to better accommodations! In particular, a place that is much closer to my girlfriend and that will be much easier for her to move into with me. 🙂 Also, a LOT more storage space for all the things I love, like vintage computers, gaming books, etc.
So, for the rest of this year, I’ll be working hard at packing up stuff, cleaning out things I don’t need, and getting relocated to my new home! Then I have to clean and get my condo in shape to sell, very quickly… the market right now is very good for it, but that’s a bit of anxiety that needs to be quelled as quickly as possible.
After I get settled in, I’ll have time to look at my programming projects anew…
I have worked on the CRPG off and on over this year, but made no significant updates I could share… when I last left off I was trying to get spells working in combat, which will open up a HUGE amount of testing work to do.
I’ve also been lured by the ease of Extended BASIC into other TI projects as well…
I completed a conversion of an old favorite TRS-80 Color Computer game, “Space Trek” to the TI, and have several other small coding projects in the works, including re-creating Aardvark Software’s “Quest” and “Wizard’s Tower” titles on the TI (which were commercially released but copies are impossible to find now) and my own personal project, “Kingdoms”, a turn-based strategy game similar to the titles put out by Not-Polyoptics.
See you next year from our new home!
