If you never used them you might disagree with me, but if you have you'll most certainly agree: multiple monitors are awesome. There are lots of upsides to multiple monitors, but one big downside: you can only set one background for all three monitors (note: this was sort of fixed in windows 8, but my post still applies if you want a custom solution). It is however perfectly possible to have a separate background for each of the monitors. In this post I'll talk about a script I wrote to compose backgrounds across multiple monitors, using Python, imagemagick, and some threading to speed it up a bit.
Pfew, that took a while! Didn't expect it to be some much work to plow through a few dozens of links. I kind of forgot that I actually have to read the links I save before I can put them on this list, so once I remembered that I got kind of stumped. But I read them all and cherry picked the most interesting ones. I want to especially want to highlight the OpenGL tutorials link. I plowed through them all and they really give a specific overview of the bare essentials you need to get started with current-date OpenGL. If anything, check out that link!
In this post I will talk about how a few friends of mine and I spontaneously organised a 24-hour gamejam and my experience during the jam. I will also showcase almost all four games completely.
Well, here it is: the end of 2014! It has been a great year for me, with lots of awesome things that happened. I got a price for enccouragement for my results in the first year of my Computer Science bachelor. Also, probably obvious but I finished my first and started with my second year of my Computer Science bachelor, which is a realy cool feeling.
Last week I participated in Ludum Dare 31, and it was totally awesome! Now that the dust has settled and I’ve had time to clear my mind a bit, it’s time to look into the process of the actual Ludum Dare, and… Evaluate!
