I was gonna wait until February 3rd to actually mention it, but I couldn't wait. (Those who can guess what is special about February 3rd, you get a cookie ). As such, I guess we'll have to go into recruitment mode.
If anyone is interested: A moderator spot will be opened.
A moderator needs to logon the website (and stay logged [aka be in the 'Online Users' list]) once a day (being active).
A moderator needs to know the game well to be able to answer users' questions (in the form of comments mostly).
A moderator can approve new entries written by users (or delete them...).
A moderator can edit anyone's entries (to add details or add as many inbound links as possible ).
A moderator can add/remove pictures/videos/gifs to anyone's entries.
A moderator has access to the Admin Lounge, a page created for website management.
Of course, granting so much power to someone I barely know is hard for me, so...
If you're interested in having such position, add me up on steam (see my profile for link) and we'll talk a bit.
Have a good one
Before I get hit hard with those 110+ hours of work / week, I'll try to get some job done over here as quickly as possible.
- Dynamic "What's new?" section (updates live)
- Raw frame of a Message Board
- Waypoint creator (for the maps)
- A little more work done on the new-to-come User Page (still postponing...)
Speaking of which... The Memory Card Game page has been officially opened.
Be sure to give it a try whenever you feel like it
- Lobby information too 'textual'
- No way of going back to a disconnected / abandoned game
- No score tracking (for now)
Added the following 4 new achievements
Current known issues
- Everything related to the User Tracker (online users, notifications, popup, etc...) stops working after the App Pool is recycled (IIS stuff...). Happens whenever the website becomes inactive (no active page loading) for a few minutes.
- When writing an entry, you should get a weird result when attempting to Preview it.
This past month has been rough. There were times where the website would go down completely for no apparent reason. I tired different approaches to fixing this issue, but none really worked.
I had to take down the website down for a few days during which I roamed through the code and fixed small things here and there. This is where I released version 19.5 beta, because I was unsure of the final result.
So far, so good. Everything is pretty much stable now. User Activity and the notification system were moved to the websockets layer (decreases the load furthermore on the server).
I also took the liberty to add a popup notification to the current notification system. If we're to build this kind of system, might as well make it big!
Release 19.4 is still something on progress (I had to postpone 19.4 and release 19.5 beta right away to fix the crashes).
Release 19.4 basically is the Memory Card game I created on the website using the Websockets layer (for multiplayer play). So far, we're still missing: disconnection tracker and a way to resume a game, a better interface for the game lobbies and a way to track down the score.
Once this is all sorted out, I'll make an announcement regarding the official release of version 19.4 features.
A lot happened in the past month regarding the website.
I started working on a minigame (memory match card) and it is almost finished.
As of now, it is a multiplayer game, but I plan to add a solo mode and a score system.
The game is still on beta phase, and I'll make a public announcement when everything is ready.
Regarding the regular updates, everything slowed down as I worked my way into changing my main hard drive. Everything went badly when I tried reinstalling everything. Even today, I'm still trying to figure out what's missing and making sure everything works as intended.
I also upgraded my dev environment, but still haven't tested the impacts on the website yet. I still need to upgrade my database engine (on my local server) to match up the new version.
What to expect next:
- User profile page revamp
- Memory card game
- Boss page
Go follow this Steam Thread and toss in your ideas for attack names.
TL;DR Click here to read about update progress and watch the video
Following some peer pressure (just kidding...), I decided to open up a Patreon page for those who want to help me support the website. I don't intend to make a living out of it, so the goals are set for what the website costs me, and nothing more.
I also wrote my very first post on there, opening with a progress update on Release 19.1.
You can read it here. I even included a little demo video of the new stuff , so be sure to check it out.
I don't have any estimated release date so far, as I've yet to tackle another rehaul of a whole system. Once I get into it, I should be able to give out an estimated release date.
Thanks for sticking around
