Concussion Recovery Update II

November 19, 2019Academic, Updates

Just a quick one this month, friends. Recovery continues. I can now manage quite a few hours (3-5?) of screen work each day, as long as I take long breaks between them and wear sunglasses to reduce the screen glare (and also I’ve reduced the brightness on my screens to the lowest level possible that … Read More

Concussion Recovery Update

October 27, 2019Academic, Updates

The concussion recovery is ongoing, and not moving as fast as I would like; I can do a few hours of screen work each day before my head starts to complain, but nowhere even close to what I used to be able to do (i.e. unlimited screen time every day without a moment’s pause). This … Read More

The Joy of Injury

September 15, 2019Updates

This is just a quick post to say I’m going to be offline for a little bit – I’ve suffered a mild concussion. Don’t worry, as far as I can tell my brain is fine (I did a radio interview that night before I realised this was actually a serious thing, and was every bit … Read More

Ultima Ratio Regum 0.8 Finale Update V

May 21, 2019Game Design, Ultima Ratio Regum, Updates

Welcome to May’s URRpdate! Things are still moving along, and rather pleasingly, it has now been a full month of coding since I discovered any more major bugs. Now, maybe that’s tempting fate, but I choose instead to read it as a very encouraging step forward. It does actually seem now that only small bugs … Read More

March 30, 2019Game Design, Ultima Ratio Regum, Updates

Continuing to chop down the list of URR stuff to be checked before 0.8’s release! Here’s what has happened in the last couple of weeks: – Resolved some strange issues with churches, especially if you approach them at night. Priests weren’t sure where to spawn or where to sleep, and random worshippers kept appearing off … Read More
