Episoded 9 and 10

After quite some time I uploaded episode 10. Episode 9 was on YouTube for quite some time, but I rather wait and then post them in pairs on my blog. Episode 9 shows how to load images into the game and then blend them on the screen. In #10 we do some refinements. I don't yet know what the next episode is going to show, so if you have any ideas, post them.

I think that the episodes are going well and that each new one gets better. I had some video/mic problems in these episodes but I think that is now fixed. I also got many subscribers which is a good positive feedback, because I know that people like the series.

On the other hand my projects have stopped. I am not working on any game right now. But I must say that I made nice progress with the framework and it's currently heading towards milestone #2. To get from the current state I have to add handling images and rendering fonts, which will require me to learn FTGL. I think that after I will reach the 2. milestone I will begin working on a new game with the framework. Because it's going to be usable at that state. I have many ideas for the next project including a sequel of "Squared Shooter". Yea it came so far that I will make a sequel, but people really like the game and I know that I can make it better and bigger. I also need to give more polish to all of my games. I think the last game that got "polished" was Space Invaders Versus. But back then my programming skills managed to create quite some bugs :)

That's all for now, goodbye.
