For this weekâ€™s Thousander Club update:
Game Hours: 216 / 1000
Game Ideas: 445 / 1000
I spent this past week researching autotools in order that I might use them in my projects. Basically, if I can use autotools in my game projects, I will have less of a problem when porting to various Unix-like systems, including different Gnu/Linux distros. In fact, if I do use autotools, I can use CheckInstall to create various distro packages, such as RPM or .deb files. Of course, there is still the problem of porting to Windows, but it seems that my code is quite portable, and there are various installers available for that platform anyway. As for the Mac, I imagine that a third party will be involved, such as Red Marble Games which provides a porting and marketing service.
This week is the 45th of the year; the year is almost over. I hope that I can make a better effort for these last few weeks.
