@shaneneville @ChevyRay the three pillars of happiness (Today)

RT @infinite_ammo: I'm doing the music for Moonlighter, a rad game that is coming to Kickstarter in a few days! t.co/CvA1JjnrZ3 htt… (Today)

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

@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)

RT @tripleboop: 3v3 tourney for #towerfall at 3B: t.co/KevlbepVWw cc @kylepulver @MattThorson etc rt rt rt (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)

Dear FNA people, what is the process of getting a shader compiled and loaded? (Trying to avoid content pipeline stuff, using just files.) (2 days ago)

Introducing Indie Game House!

Introducing Indie Game House!

My housemates and I just launched a brand new website! Check out Indie Game House! It's all about four game developers living together talking about games and other stuff. We don't really know where we're going to take it just yet, but for now we've posted a pilot episode of our podcast which you can find right here. It features myself, Corey Nolan, Steve Swink, and Erin Robinson.

It should also be a feed of blog posts from the four of us as well, which will hopefully prompt me to write more posts on this blog. Something I've been meaning to improve on is my own ability to just write a quick blog post and post it, but I have that thing where I write out an enormous post, and when I read it back to myself I'm suddenly filled with an incredible amount of doubt, which then makes me close the window and never look at it again. Yeah, gotta fix that.

Anyway, stay tuned to Indie Game House for some blog posts and podcasts that will probably be enjoyable. We're looking for any feedback we can get on the first episode, so if you feel so inclined then please give it a listen and drop us a comment on the post. We're listening!

About

Hi! My name's Kyle, and I make video games most of the time in Denver, Colorado. Here you will find my thoughts, games, websites, doodles, and other stuff like that. I worked on Snapshot, Offspring Fling, and a whole bunch of other games. I also created and maintain Otter, a 2d game making framework. If you want to get a hold of me use the form on the bottom of the page, leave a comment, or just tweet at me. I try to post three times a week. Thanks for stoppin' by! You're the coolest.
