New Moon Base Video

I have been in the video making mood for the last view days. I made a high resolution moon base video with the correct aspect ratio. Make sure you watch this one in full screen, youtube does a terrible job scaling the videos down.

Puzzle Game

I have been considering porting my puzzle game over to the XBOX 360... I figured I should at least play it again before I make the decision. A funny thing happened, VB6 + D3DVB8 doesn't work on Windows 7, they are both really depreciated.

I couldn't find any guides on how to get this stuff running... so I got medieval... I went batman on Windows 7's ass... first found and installed both the vb6 and dx8vb dlls and then installed them using the command prompt, but the game still didn't work, I spent about two hours troubleshooting until I discovered that d3d8 doesn't like to run windowed on high resolution screens. While I had the game running I made a video.

Divine Utterance #1

"Game development is a lot like being an artist, but for smarter people."

A divine utterance is the word of the gods spoken through a human conduit.
