New Toy

June 19, 2009

two days ago, i went down to somewhere near my old workplace to meet up with a friend. she’s the one who replaced me when i left the old job. met her for some recruitment thingie and present her with some oportunities in iphone development.

IMAG0014after the meeting, i went straight to the nearest shoping complex, the klcc twin towers, to shop for present for my kid’s upcoming birthday. i bought a lego set for him, and while at it, i bought one for mysleft. hehe. this is my first lego since like 20 years ago. come to think of it, it’s actually my first lego technic. i’m loving it. probably gonna buy a remote control car, took out all its electronics and transfer to this one, and make it a remote control lego quad bike. if only i paid more attention during my electronics training 10 years ago.

by the way, this one is cool that it reminds me of scrambler, a character in bob the builder. my kid has one scrambler toy too.

i slept at 7am yesterday. wait, actually today. caught up in my programming, can’t let go of the keyboard. after finally forced myself to bed (more like comforters on the floor instead of a bed), somebody just conveniently called me at 8am to ask for a favor to run some errands. i managed to weasel my way out of it and went nack to bed. that’s only after about 1/2 an hour or so tossing and turning, feeling guilty.

i was so close to discovering a way to make my program work the way i want it to work, before i went to bed. luckily when i continued back after my good day sleep, i manged to finally complete the discovery. the program works! just before i was about to declare that it’s just not possible to do it that way.

okie dokie, its midnite now. want to do some reading, and gaming a bit. today i have to sleep a bit early. got some iphone workshop tomorrow. must set aside some ample time to get lost finding my way to the workshop venue.

ah cool stuff…

finally after 2 days, i managed to get some problems with audio for this hush hush project i’m working on. the problems might not be problems at all for good programmers. i just don’t qualify. but hey, i’m still learning this xcode thingie. don’t fully understand its framework yet, but i’m getting there.


to go or not to go…

June 12, 2009

just got word that there will be some game function in a shopping mall near here. dunno yet going or not. if going, then need to wake up early. it’ll be difficult to get parking space midday. but it’s already 4am now… hrmm..

btw here’s a snapshot of the preliminary intro testing of the game we’re working on. doesn’t do much actually. just scroll through the map and the yellow box at the bottom left small map will move along with the perspective.


next up is to put in the menu button and the menu itself.

after that, will make the city markers clickable to display some details of the city.


Move into MSC Malaysia Content Accelerator Lab (CAL)

April 16, 2007

Today we moved into the CAL. Quite a cool place to start working this project full time.
The guys from MDeC are generous to provide us a cool desktop for the game development. Best of all, all the facilities are free, including the internet. TQ MDeC.

Lately the progress have been slow in the programming department due to moridh’s laptop decided to stop working. The thing will be stuck for repair at least until tomorrow. Ah well.
The development of the Map (appearance) is finalized for now. Further enhancement may be made, but not until polishing stage.
QriOCT will start working on character design today.
moridh will continue on the coding and UI develoment.


My First Post

February 7, 2007

Hi all..

First of all i would like to point out that this is my first post whatsoever in a blog or whatever you want to call it, such as this. So if I accidentally without knowing, breach any unwritten law of blog writing out there, do point out. Or is it better to remain blissful in ignorance… thinking… pondering…

Anyways, this blog right here was actually setup to post in progress report on our current development. And so, the first post will be some personal ramblings about how slow the progess is… Read on…

Yikes.. 5pm already.. gotta go fetch wife.. she bought ice cream!!
