Have you seen the new mac app called iBooks Author? It allows you to make content-rich, interactive iBooks for the iPad. Just connect your iPad and you’re food to go. You can even set an opening video that plays each time you launch the iBook! Check it out, it’s free!
G-Dev++ 2.0 is in the making! It contains added features such as you can change the player and enemy image depending on which direction it is going. This will make it look cooler! Expect a download soon!
Saturday was my birthday and I got a MacBook Pro! It was the 15-inch version and it is sooooo cool! It has OS X Lion with the multitasking gestures! That’s all for now, see you!
I have decided to merge G-Dev++ with Insignia. This means that we will use the Insignia code to port G-Dev++ to iOS. It will be risky, but it’s worth a try. Tell me how you think.
Okay, so I found a way to help with the MinecraftFree multiplayer problem. Basically you have to host a special MinecraftFree server. It’s a modded version of the Minecraft Classic server that allows MinecraftFree to read it. Then, copy the URL and paste it into the Server URL textbox.
You should be able to play online!
Thanks for supporting me through-out this project, I will post download links when it’s ready for general release. If you want to beta test, comment below. I’ll give a copy to the first five people.
Thanks, and remember to comment!
Alright, today I can officially say that MinecraftFree Multiplayer is working, v 1.0.0. There are a few bugs and restrictions such as we only allow Minecraft classic servers, which is annoying. We cannot get access to real Minecraft Servers because it would require hacking. We are still thinking of a way around this. So far, it looks good though, with minimal lagging. I’ll post some screenshots soon, if I remember 😉
MinecraftFree is now working almost perfectly! Unfortunately, if you try and connect to a multiplayer server, it won’t work. I’m working on it though! Although I can’t change it so that it will connect right from minecraft itself (that would require changing the code of minecraft!), I’m creating a separate program to allow multiplayer server connection, called MinecraftFree Multiplayer. I’ll package them together so that when you first launch MinecraftFree, before running any minecraft code, it’ll ask you if you want to play single player or multiplayer.
Beta testers have also discovered a minor flaw in that the full screen button does not work. That’s an easy fix in VB. Stay tuned for a download link!
Hey guys! Today I’ll show you my ongoing project. It is called MinecraftFree. It lets people try minecraft out. It’s just a program that mirrors the java applet on the minecraft website. This is not against the terms because it is just mirroring and is doing it via the Internet and not through downloaded files – i.e. I have not downloaded the minecraft game just to sell it, I am basically showing a web browser to the applet which is online. And I am not selling it.
The game in MinecraftFree is not the full version of minecraft, that would be illegal. Instead it is just minecraft classic which is available for free.
I have finished MinecraftFree and I am currently working on MinecraftFree Multiplayer. I’ll release both at the same time – free download.
I’m moving to Mac. I am, hopefully, going to get a MacBook Pro for my birthday at the end of this month. It is not because I don’t like Windows, no, it is for a few other reasons:
1. My windows laptop is slowwwwwwwwww…
2. Mac are cool. They have style, and are so über-cool. The GUI is much better than windows.
3. Xcode and the iOS SDK. Yeah, for about two years now, I’ve wanted to get a mac for solely this reason. I wanted to make iPhone apps! Also, I was tired of using VB to make programs for windows, I wanted to start developing for mac!
4. OS X Lion is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!! Have you tried it at an Apple Store? It it such an update to Snow Leopard. It is enhanced by the MacBook pro’s multitasking gestures.
Yeah, I’ll miss Windows, but I believe that Mac is the way forward for me. I’m not saying mac’s better than windows, I’m just saying that for me, mac is right – just because it has what I need and want.
Here are the top three programs I’ll miss from Windows:
Visual Basic. It is the best SDK I have ever used, it creates program’s for windows easily. I made program for my friends all the time. I guess Xcode is the mac alternative, I hope it will be this good!
Dark Basic Pro. It was the best 3d game programming language I have ever experienced. Unfortunately, the compiler is not available for macs, so I will have to find another, equally awesome 3d game programming language that is suited to macs.
3d RAD. I used this program for a Latin project at school once, I got 9/10. It is so easy to use, and the fact that it had a scripting tool helped a lot – because I like scripting.
There we have it. Thanks for reading what I think is my longest post ever. Remember, comment, like and follow!
I leave you with an image that made me chuckle:
Minecraft Pocket Edition 0.3.0 has been released! It has loads more features including crafting! Yes, you heard it Minecraft Pocket Edition now has crafting! The features don’t stop there though, cows and chickens have been added! Also, the inventory has been completely redesigned! It has to be the best Minecraft PE update ever!!!
