  • This page is intended to be a sort of liner notes for my contributions to Spore. It's a place for me to write up miscellaneous development comments about the parts of the game I worked on, while they're still fresh in my mind.
  • In the 1980s, you could look up from your Commodore 64, hours after purchasing it, with a glossy feeling of empowerment, achieved by the pattern of notes spewing from the speaker grille in an endless loop. You were part of the movement to help machines sing! You were a programmer! The Atari 800 people had BASIC. They know what I’m talking about. And the TI-994A guys don’t need to say a word, because the TI could say it for them!

    The old machines don’t compare to the desktops of today, or to the consoles of today. But, sadly, current versions of Windows have no immediately accessible programming languages. And what’s a kid going to do with Visual Basic? Build a modal dialog? Forget coding for XBox. Requires registration in the XBox Developer Program. Otherwise, you gotta crack the sucker open. GameCube? GameBoy? Playstation 2?

  • Nog altijd de allerbeste handleiding ooit.
  • Hackety.org is for artful computer hacking. Mind expanding code. Hobbyists & amateurs welcome. Business trends and language wars? None for us, thankyou!
