First this is a very very very very long time since I post, but I was really busy and still busy but now less busy than before.
The reason I was away was due to army first I was away for 50 days in my training camp then when I returned I go everyday from 5:00 am and return home at 6:00 pm working for army so I reach home tired and go for sleep directly or see a movie and sleep.
No big deals and what make it worse for me that I am have collegue post graduate studies and I was having exams and I didnt study well because of the army.
A week as usual from last post 🙂 as I can’t do better than that in these days 🙂 lots of meeting and working and less time to sleep 🙂
First I will talk about my projects 🙂
Hello World! is still buggy and contain lots of error :S the server side was sending data lately so the game speed at the client decrements as more clients get involved. We were having this huge problem till yesterday were we tried an old library, We tried it long time ago (called Lidgren) and we found it is not better than threading in the dotNet Frame work but when one of my friends try it yesterday it worked nicely and this problem was nearlly disappeared so we were so happy 🙂
There are other problem with graphics and I am affraid that my friends may dont like it :S I am not proffesional with Lighting and stuffs like these. I am only good at retro style effects some particle effects no more :S but guassian blur and other effects I dont know how to do it so I will try to learn how to do them so I hope that I can do it perfectly 🙂
About Tomy the artist he send to me some mockup for the character (his face will be changed to be more chibi look)

Other news about GameMaker and YoYoGames the new GM8 logo will not be changed any more as Sandy said and here is the latest version of it (In my view the orginal logo have more professional look than that but doesnt describe GameMaker at all)
Long enough since I posted here thats because I didnt have anything to write about also I didnt want to spoil my new Game (Mailure).
I think that is super great news I released a new game with no geometrical graphics it is totally pixel art made by me 🙂
You play with naughty boy at school who always fails at exams. So the principal of his school decided to send a mail to his mother, but sending one mail is not enough because the boy may stole it from the postman.
