[Plornt] commented on a Page, Machi Koro in mIRC  -  Aug 20, 2015

Oh god, that did not post correctly at all.

Think I just broke the syntax highlighter... It doesnt like what I just tried to do.

Before you go ahead and start reading this and trying to put this on your IRC bot, you should know that this requires a DLL and may require IRCop permissions on your server if the server you are going to play on has excess flood limitations. This is a very spammy game and was made purely as a test to see how long it would take to make in mSL.

Had a fun work day of working out if Elasticsearch was better than Solr and how to implement a socket.io based geographical map clustering predictive text search. They're both great but the style of querying the data is a headache to work out. Anyone done anything like this before?

Pretty neat, but not sure if you knew or not you can use the following to do this:

    set $+(%,$chan,.myvar) Something
    echo -a $($+(%,$chan,.myvar),2) 

Which is a tad more readable than the [] style of evaluating.

Hey, just noticed, the code pen example is broken because github (due to the security risk and the whole chinese redirecting github scripts to a random page) now serves content with text/plain rather than as a script. Can fix it by using cdnjs: https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/wow/1.1.2/wow.min.js

Looks pretty cool when its loaded though! Further things to add might be to make it so it preloads 10 and then put the rest in an array to be loaded as you scroll further (so your scroll bar doesnt go wacky whilst it loads!). Still, a neat little proof of concept!

Just finished up my version of the Machi Koro board game in mIRC. Has its own eventing system and everything making it easy to expand!

Has a lot of spam though so required IRCop access. Pretty fun when you get the hang of how it all works.

Messing with Dart, I seriously do not understand languages which do not have proper date time parsing nor date time formatting (Without the use of third party extensions). You have to use a very specific set of time strings to be able to parse your time (none of which are fully standards compliant), you cannot specify your own formatting - ie you cannot tell it specifically what to look for. And finally you have to pull in a third party package to be able to format the date time. For such common uses you'd think theyd have that in the core library.

I love how mirc is able to break Hawkees script highlighter >.<

What happens when you cross a asynchronous language with a server:

Possibly the biggest mess of code I have had to ever create. It basically reverses the asynchronus nature of Dart for each page request so I dont have to worry about things executing in the wrong order.

Started work on my browser based dart(language) game. Class based languages that keep state across page loads are so much easier to code for. Caching all users in memory which are logged in is virtually effortless.

Do users have to login to see snippets?

Also if you go to hawkee.com and not www.hawkee.com the server doesnt respond :o

Finished my server & client cursor disco ;)

https://github.com/Plornt/CursorDiscoServer
https://github.com/Plornt/CursorDiscoClient

Demo: http://plornt.com/WebSockets/cursordiscoclient.html

Syncs users cursors, background and song.

All coded in Dart :D

Just tried to hop on to Dart again to try and see if I can fix any of my code. Thought since there is no new documentation on the part they changed that I would look in the examples that come with the program (Fresh install) so I can see what they did. Turns out the examples no longer work either!

[Plornt]   -  Nov 17, 2012

What the fuck sort of language (even though its in alpha) makes so drastic changes that literally every line of code from a month ago is invalid. Gah. Just fired up Dart again to code from where I left off and literally NOTHING works and now for some reason doesnt support spaces in names either! Yay.

Yeah sorry thought it was an identifier when I first looked didn't occur to me that it was the actual trigger.

Wait, since when has identifiers worked in the event text? I was always led to believe you had to encase it in $()

Sorry worded it wrong/explained it shittily. If you create a new project in Dart the default files it creates for the webpage uses Open Sans.

Got a week off next week so hopefully I can possibly finish off my game engine properly and enter the git hub Game Off. Got some nice ideas for a game based on Forking and time travel + cloning.

[Plornt] commented on a Page, Canvas Bounce in Dart  -  Nov 14, 2012

Dart is by default Open Sans, got used to the font and really like it so I used it in my snippet.

You dont need the $+ in this context... $chr($2) would do just fine etc.

Just finished event firing in my game... Really unhappy at how its turning out. This is my first time doing anything like this and it feels weird when it works but doesnt look nice :(

@Hawkee is it supposed to say " liked your comment, " rather than my own name? For example when you clicked like on my comment it shows "Hawkee liked your Comment, SunnyD"

Edit: Oh I see thats just the profile name that its on and it links to the comment. I get it now :P!
