Good: Pixel Wheels standalone installers work on all platforms!
Bad: The game runs way too fast on Windows and I have no idea why...
For non techie family, what #XMPP / #Matrix client do you suggest? I'm looking for something similiar to #Facebook / #WhatsApp in features (eg videocalls) and interface. It needs to be on #Android and #iOS, be #FOSS and *easy to use*.
Please boost as I'm sure many people are looking for alternatives for family right now.
I guess I am officially a mobile app developer now...
To whoever bought Pixel Wheels on https://agateau.itch.io/pixelwheels and set the price to $8 instead of the default $2: Thank you! You rock! ❤
@lordampersand I think the only way to find out is to smash pixel art together at ever increasing energies, to see what strange new and exotic sub-pixels are created.
I like the idea that pixel art works on a similar principle as particle physics: Just as the rules of Newtonian physics break down when things get really small, traditional art principles stop working on a pixel scale. For example, you can't draw circles if there are only corners to draw with. I wonder if this affinity goes deeper and reveals some more interesting parallels.
Are your git checkouts a mess of merged branches? maybe Git Bonsai can help.
Experimenting with binary snapshots of master branches for GitHub projects. Could not find a way to make it work with GitHub releases without abusing tags, so for now binaries are uploaded to https://builds.agateau.com.
Got this running for Pixel Wheels and git-bonsai so far.
Been working on git-bonsai this week, improving duplicate handling and updating README, hopefully making it easier to understand, what do you think?
Since everybody's all about supporting artists at the moment I decided to create a Liberapay account. Almost all of my artwork is available under a Creative Commons license, and I will not be minting any NFTs.
Anything you want to donate is much appreciated, and if you can't or don't want to I hope you enjoy my art anyway, no pressure 😄
Weeknote 2021-03-14: Pixel Wheels 0.19.0, git-uff and git-bonsai!
"I will slaughter you" - some emails penetrate even my thick open source maintainer skin. Like this threat.
