Thousander Club Update: July 23rd

For this week’s Thousander Club update:

Game Hours: 262.25 (previous year) + 143.75 (current year) = 406 / 1000
Game Ideas: 616 (previous year) + 83 (current year) = 691 / 1000

I tore through “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows” in order to get it completely out of the way. I read it in three sessions (darn a need to clean and sleep getting in the way!). Now I don’t have to worry about deciding between working on my game and reading a book. B-)

I managed to fix my build. I can now check it out into an arbitrary directory and build it. Previous it assumed I had a certain directory structure in my home directory. It was similar to having hard-coded constants in my code, only I couldn’t figure out why turning them into variables still resulted in the same constants being used some of the time.

With the build fixed, I spent the rest of my time figuring out how to incorporate Guichan into my code. I already have a separate MenuManager class, so the rest of my game might be untouched as I add and change code.
