GTV is like Git-TV

2013-04-03 21:38:58

Gamecora TV (Link) and the whole JSTV Suite (Link) is now on GitHub (Link) in order to make patch publishing faster - especially for Aggro.
Now you can checkout Aggro and use it for testing via a custom not-committable configuration file. It should make easier to work on it and commit everything blindly without committing the whole cache directory and personal Twitter keys, hash salt values etc.
Yesterday evening I've also improved z-index handling in title screen and textstreams and RSS feed parsing due to bug reports - RSS from gaming scene are using any type of standard and not-so-standard :)

Anyway, everything is there now. Have fun!

Gamecora TV and JSTV Suite

2013-04-01 16:40:30

After a month and something, another project reached the bottom.
Well... it took quite a long time but with a reason: this time is a two-men triple-project.
After days talking about gaming and internet information, after reading this (Link) we came out with our personal solution: Gamecora TV (Link).
It picks a lot of stuff from direct sources of gaming scene, mix them and fill Javascript/CSS3 based TV shows. Yeah, I like nonsense.
How it works? JSTV (Link), a JSON-driven opensourced Javascript/CSS3 scene player.
And how it mixes? Aggro and JSTVC, a server-side newsfeed/Twitter aggregator and a client-side content-to-show converter that's opensource too.

I'm forgetting anything? TECHNOBABBLE! HTML5 video playback and workers, CSS3
styles and transitions, touchscreen support bla bla.

The happy Gamecora TV, JSTV, JSTVC and Aggro family has suprisingly father and mother: this time a good part of the project (data collecting, design, TV programs planning) is here thanks to Bianca Brenna. No hope to reach the end without her work.

That's all. Just point your browser to the real thing. Happy watching! (Link)

Notes: we're using it for making cyclette better.

Akihabara and Magaka commits

2013-02-03 11:04:17

...but nothing groundbreaking. :)
After a clever suggestion of a Njy, a friend who is working on Magaka (Link), I decided to refresh a bit the page loading code which was sadly synchronous.
Meanwhile, since I've refreshed a bit my (little) knowledge of GIT and his command line, I checked out Akihabara too (Link) and improved WiiU support, which is testable on the demo pages - just have a look to the settings page before playing.

ATM GIT versions of Akihabara/Magaka are different from their stable versions since I haven't enough time to test them again everywhere so let me know if you've done some tests, whenever were OK or wrong :)

About me

I'm Francesco and I should be 41 years old now. Should be because this age is calculated by three lines of code and I could be dead now and this code can run forever. Never mind. I love computers and computer programming. I play videogames since the first day of the Atari age in Italy and I love them when are made by people. And this happens quite often, since there isn't - when I'm writing these lines - a machine which programs itself at this level of complexity - however should be interesting. How can be a self-programmed videogame? Something like Nethack? I love drawing manga, opensource and everything else is indie and made with love. Oh, I also love alive things. Bianca. But, seriously, we are in a world where machines sings that are Still Alive, so we can love everything. I also love friends. I've just a few of these little things and most of them are just chat contatcts. Who cares? Computers are made by people, used by people and transfer data made by people (eventually formatted to justified text by machines) so I'm (we're - as human) everywhere. And I love writing fuzzy things about technology, friends and me, if is alive. And I just love things? No. I hate the half of the things I've not listed here. If this was a classic personal blog of some frustrated teenager I should put you in the bad half. Cheese. You probably are in the good one - according my site stats.

How do you add links with Magaka pages?

KesieV at 2011-06-07 13:01:19

I sadly discovered this sad sad truth this morning. Fiddled with parameters but with very poor results. I want my Opera back! :)

Your Akibahara run slow like 5fps on 3DS, but... its run :D
