I can do with that. I feared I bought the AC for my office just to gather dust.

Also it's perfect bike weather. So I'll be chasing a few km later (at least 50)...

Yep and my office reached 27°C before I turned on the AC.

Honestly?

Xbox Fitness was my personal go-to workout in winter/on rainy days. Taking it completely offline is really pissing me off.
Microsoft recently announced their plans to shut down Xbox Fitness service. Xbox Fitness is one of the main reasons why people still use Kinect. Also, people have invested a lot in Xbox Fitness Content. By killing the app, you are also removing their access to content they purchased from Xbox Store. Make the purchased content videos available for lifetime and free content till Xbox One EOL. https://microsoftstudios.com/news/2016/06/27/x...

Had a few days off and I'm really struggling to get back into the loop. So first thing today was to set up bones and envelopes to get the new Violet out and into the game.

Seems like the first pass envelopes need a bit of fine tuning :).

Besides wasting a good chunk of the evening with falling asleep (pro tip: don't code on the couch and close your eyes to think about a problem), I also managed to add a new feature.

Violet can now hide from the guards in a WC stall (which isn't timed like hiding in shadows).

My desktop clock also shows that it is Saturday and because I also have a screenshot ... it is #ScreenShotSaturday !

ps: can the g+ team PLEASE add back hashtag auto-complete?

Now, if that isn't a reason to take part.
 
I just setup a contest in Twin Robots! You can win a 3D printed figurine of one of the robots from the game.

Hi,. Hope you are all having fun playing Twin Robots! I thought it would be cool to make some kind of contest to reward you for playing this game, and a 3D printed figurine of one of the robots came up as a nice prize! Some time ago I made one for myself, I hand painted it and it's currently ...

Dilbert: I love living in a world where everything I need to know is on the Internet. I'll just hop over to YouTube and learn how to use my new app. Perfect! I can choose from over a hundred different tutorials! It will only take me an hour or so to figure out which one refers to my version of the software. Narrator: One hour later. Dilbert: Gaaa!!! These videos are poorly labeled! Narrator: Two hours later. Dilbert: Gaaa!!! This guy talks too sl...

#E3 is over, but the fun is not: Twin Robots is out today on WiiU! #WiiU #indiegame 
Twin Robots is a 2D platformer where you can switch control between two little robots – they’ve been imprisoned and need to find the way out of each level!

Cheers, V1 was more a less a rush-job to get it out, but over time all the little things I didn't like added up to the point where I just had to fix them :)

I know this doesn't look much, but the yellow line shows today's new feature: a hackable terminal and the linked object, a CCTV.

Somewhere down the road this will become a minigame and even further down the road you'll be able to use a Fallout (3 / 4) like terminal UI to access its linked object's properties (think of enabling elevators, disabling CCTVs, remote opening of doors, you get the point).
But right now you can only hack or disable the linked object (hacking a CCTV means it no longer detects you - but it takes a lot longer [to hack], disabling it will ... disable it - but also make guards suspicious - but is a lot quicker).

Just a few new things to add (light switches, WC stalls (you can hide in there) and the guard), before I can finally add the "level done" code.

Exactly 2 weeks ago I had the idea to write my own FSM engine in order to bring some ... order to the source code.

The old way got a bit messy after a certain number of states (big switch statement) and it lacked some "features" like events for "OnEnterState" or "OnExitState".

The image really doesn't reveal anything new, but you know ... image posts just do so much better.

Link-to-WORKING-demo would do really well.

I might have a working code base now, but it doesn't mean I have a playable state :)

You'll be the first I'll mail a link to.
