Wow, two content updates in quick succession, must try and keep his momentum up! Anyway, here’s another promo image for a slash screen for the 45 app. Basic concept stuff to start generating content.
I’ve been working on generating the card images for the game and I was blown away by the SVG image format for scalability and small file size. PNG images do fine so been exporting/converting the deck of SVGs to PNG (Photoshop keyboard shortcuts are your friend!), so I’m nearly finished that so I won’t have to do it again. Opting for PNGs in the interim, while I suss out SVG libraries for Android.

Joker card -SVG format (hosted on Drive due to WordPress limitation). Open the files natively in Chrome and ‘CTRL’ and ‘+’ to zoom in.
So it’s been a while since I’ve posted an update and a lot has been going on. I’ve been working on some HTML5 and packaged Chrome apps/extensions and scripting for the last few months, but as usual, I got a little distracted and took a bit of a hiatus.
I’ve updated the website theme and I’ll *try* to make some basic improvements and generate some further content. This teaching yourself to code, while working and having a life/family is pretty difficult, but rewarding. I have a basic HTML 45 now (not pretty but great to finally see code doing something), so I’ll try to clean it up and get some feedback on it.
After a bit of a coding break, I’ll attempt to get some momentum going over the next few weeks. May also try and post some further ramblings/tutorials on my process and journey of development while trying to grasp new and ever evolving web technologies and open-source.
Check out some interesting stuff coming out of FabLab Limerick, with 3d printing, laser cutter and CNC.
I’ve linked in some promo/initial concept artwork, that was sort of thrown together.
