Not. A Good. Day.
Yesterday, overnight, I seemed to have contracted some sort of DISEASE that has left me utterly bedridden and consequently, today I took the day off and stayed at home trying to recuperate. Today has been the most unproductive day this month so far. (However, I did try to pretend to be philosophical by sitting in the garden and basking in the heat whilst reading aimlessly).
Towards the afternoon however I did try to tackle a problem I had been facing in the visual novel.
Personally, I am not a big fan of swearing, but I know that for some people- swearing is an effective way of conveying emotion, so the game may be more atmospheric if it could relate to some people at a deeper level. I've included a picture of the mediocre code anyway just to show everyone that I'm not sitting on my bottom all day ordering people around (And also if you have any idea how to fix this, please get in touch).
Yes, I lose motivation a lot more times than others, however I have so many people relying on me, and I am relying on too many people to all of a sudden let them down by saying, "I'm discontinuing this project" after all of the effort they have put in to make it happen.
Nonetheless, after that failed to work I looked at the game trailer I had made and then realised I hated it and wanted to change it. So- I made a whole new trailer, which lagged my whole PC for an hour before a nice message came up saying it refused to render. Admittably it was on a high rendering setting, but a few minutes ago I rendered it again and so far it has been performing smoothly. Huzzah.
16:37 - Rendering complete. Time for checking for errors and if all is swell, I will upload it as the first video for Switch's youtube channel.
16:37 - I give up trying to make trailers. Here - take a look for yourself and leave comments if the video really compels you. Music contributed by one of our fellow musicians - Joshua Artavia. Sound Effects edited onto the track by yours truly and made by freesound.org.
Oh. Would you look at that- I can't upload big files or put videos on my website until I upgrade Weebly. Shame. I do not think that the video is good quality enough to put onto youtube.
Great. Totally productive day!
(Let's see if I can find a way around this with my limited HTML knowledge)
17:02 - Tried... Quality came out terrible because I uploaded to Tinypic but you can always visit the Donate page and donate to the site so we can upgrade the site :).
Until next time,
