Another good day of exercise and work. Just beat the shadow temple in the Secret of Mana LP I’m watching.
burgers steamed hams for dinner too!
I forget what else I did, oops. I do know that I very briefly checked that Itoi bass fishing game to see how hackable/translatable it would be. The font is compressed, which makes things harder, so I gave up at that point. The good news is that the existing font contains upper and lowercase English letters, but the font widths are so crazy that it might not be worth it. Anyway, I don’t plan on working on it, I mostly wanted to see if it was possible. Maybe if I’m ever super-bored and have lots of free time someday, but I can’t see myself translating a fishing game unless it’s particularly great, which I don’t know if this is.
I also downloaded Unity to try and learn the ropes of game-making with it, but the installer is corrupt or something and it always fails however many times I download it 🙁 I also started jotting down notes for a game idea I’ve had in my head for weeks. I think it might be cool if I can work it out, but it’s gonna be some mind-bending stuff so I might not get far.
For the Mother 3 patch, I’m probably going to hold off on releasing it until I know what the deal is with Itoi’s recent announcement. But I’ll probably still slowly work on it – it’s mostly done, the big issues are getting the new disclaimer screen in (which is being surprisingly tough) and doing testing. I’m pretty sure we’ll release the 1.2 patch eventually, just not so close to any big announcements on Itoi’s/Nintendo’s part.
