'Bout me

About me:

Skype: soyrux
Steam: Cactose

Hi there. :wave:

I come from New Hampshire, U.S. I'm sort of near Boston, but not that close. Just close enough to have the accent.

I'm currently in a community college right now, but am going to transfer to a 4-year college and major in computer science.

I used to run a Minecraft server called Daexsys, but those are bygone days. Now I'm working on my own multiplayer game. :flirty:

- Favorites games: Minecraft, Bit.Trip series, Pokemon
- Favorite music genres: Dream pop, bluegrass, shoegaze, space music, red dirt
- Favorite TV shows: Sword Art Online, Attack on Titan, Doctor Who
- Favorite console: #pcmasterrace. Oh, a console? 3DS.
- Favorite colors: Dark green, light green, green, black, light blue

Computer stuff:
- Windows 7 user, Linux fanboy 4 life
- Java developer
- Git version control user
- IntelliJ IDEA User
- I run BOINC: Milkyway at home and Asteroids at home

- Unaffiliated, right leaning.
- Transhumanist
- Agnostic atheist
- Pro-abortion
- I am not politically correct by a long shot, and have no desire to be.
- Anthropocentrist. We need to be environmentally responsible, but environmentalists go too far in my opinion.
- Against racist "anti-racists".
- Anti-feminist.


Want to race my computer on BOINC, for the good of science? Send me a note!

Unfortunately, this new interface seems much slower than the old one. There's a notable delay from when you hover over drop-down menus until when they actually open, especially when the page is still loading.
Hey, look, we finally have this feature! Been wanting it for a while. :lmao:
What is Megaton? It's a new game, (an attempt at an MMO, specifically) that I've been working on for roughly a month. It's bullet-hell / 2D third-person-shooter inspired. And the login/auth system is completely up, so anyone can go register over there at:

Thanks HamburgerHelperPlz for the doman.

We're still working out a lot of the kinks. As usual, Java is required. The game is still in early alpha so... expect bugs. ;l
Am I cool yet? 8-) (Cool) 
'Tis a momentous day. Or rather, yesterday was.

It is now possible to spawn a single-player server (similar to Source engine and Minecraft), which can also accept connections from stand-alone clients, or create a dedicated server process.

There are packets for entity spawning (server -> client), entity movement (server -> client + client -> server), entity rotation (unparsed currently), and entity destruction (server -> client). Entities are assigned IDs serverside, and are sent alongside this ID to the clients.

The entity spawn packet includes parameters for the x and y coordinates of the spawned object as well as its width, height, and a 'special' string, which can contain metadata for the object such as its color, or its asset image in the case of ImageComponents. In the future it may possible to load entire JSON object literals into the special value to send more complex objects to the clients.

I tried to make the system extremely abstracted, and will most likely abstract it further beyond 2D RenderComponents because I want to use this in future 3D projects as well.

To that end, I'm thinking of detatching the Entity Logic / Networking aspects of Ijen away from the Java2D rendering aspects. I'm not sure which one will keep the name Ijen. Maybe both will.
