@gertjanstolk that would be cool as heck. Can get me at hi@kpulv.com (Yesterday)

@codeapparat Hmm okay, there's BufferData, but now how to convert any of that to color data o __ o (Yesterday)

@codeapparat Hmm right but how do I get such an array from SharpFont's bitmaps? (Yesterday)

So I'm using System.Drawing.Bitmap as part of the process to Texture2D here, but I'm thinking this might not be the best idea... (Yesterday)

Yeeehaw loadin' a whole font into FNA with SharpFont t.co/TJfjxY1MPs (Yesterday)

@AsherVo making video games is like 10% game stuff and 173% UI design and programming (Yesterday)

@ChevyRay @eigenbom I have a W showing up for now #blessed t.co/0RzVOwdYCn (2 days ago)

@ChevyRay @eigenbom Ohh I was looking at the font code you gave me for SDL2 as a reference... but maybe we shall chat again soooon <3 (2 days ago)

@eigenbom eh maybe if I was doing 3d, I've given it a few shots and I just don't like the feel of the workflow for 2d :I (2 days ago)

@eigenbom Sort of. A lot of my utility/helper stuff is instant portable. Rebuilding the rendering stuff though using old code as a guide. (2 days ago)

@eigenbom UHHhhh trying to figure out if FNA is gonna be usable for my next project. Right now I am in font/text rendering hell. ;D (2 days ago)

Okay lets try to take this SharpFont library and uhh somehow... render text with XNA... and uh... *barf* (2 days ago)

@jacobalbano I compiled my .fx file into a .fxb with that fxc.exe program from the direct x SDK. Can be just used on its own. (2 days ago)

this may just look like a pink silhouetted graphic but it represents a shader actually working with FNA yeehaaawww t.co/AbriJFfgA5 (2 days ago)

@flibitijibibo Probably best thing is on google chats pulverk@gmail.com (2 days ago)

@flibitijibibo @larsiusprime Nope I have no XNA projects at all, starting from scratch. Will check out this fxc.exe thingy (2 days ago)

Flippy Flop Source

Flippy Flop Source

Yesterday I made a quick game called Flippy Flop using Otter. The whole thing only took me two hours or so, and the end result ended up being a relatively clean coded game.

I decided to add the Flippy Flop source code to the Otter source repository on BitBucket in the Examples folder. So now when you grab Otter you'll also get the source for the Otter Pong Game, and the amazing Flippy Flop.

Flippy Flop makes use of the EventRouter included in Otter. The EventRouter was originally authored by some smart Phoenix locals, and is used a lot in their Unity projects. Since it was just a C# implementation I grabbed and it stuck it in Otter. The EventRouter is all about following the Observer pattern. It can be a little weird to use at first, but I'm beginning to see the appeal of it.

(Disclaimer: There may be some bugs in the source for FlippyFlop. I didn't really check it over for memory leaks, which can easily pop up when using an Event system. If you don't make sure you're unsubscribing from events when objects are removed, or clearing the event router, you might find yourself in memory leak city.)

If you have any questions about Otter, or the source code of the game, check out the Otter forums or leave a comment below.

Awesome! I'll give it a shot tonight -- I've been meaning to check out Otter for some time now; it really seems to be coming along.

I think there's a minor typo above? "If you don't make sure you're subscribing from events when objects are removed..." Should be "unsubscribing?"
