It is that time again. After four long months of waiting, I was going to enter my first Ludum Dare 48 game jam. Unfortunately, couple of weeks prior of the jam starting, I found out that I was not going to be able to enter (who decides to get married on a Ludum Dare weekend?!).
Instead of not doing anything, I decided that I will write about the game I would develop if I was entering the jam. I found out the theme was 10 seconds. Hmm… interesting theme. After thinking about it for a few hours, I thought of a good game that would have matched the theme brilliantly.
Before I redesigned my website, I posted the retroarch.cfg file for the PlayStation 2 controller. The file allows you to use a PlayStation 2 controller to play retro games using the RetroPie image on the raspberry pi. I am not sure if some people still want the file so I am reposting the link here. You can download the retroarch.cfg file by clicking here.
To use the retroarch.cfg file:
1. Navigate to /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/
2. Replace the retroarch.cfg file with the one you have downloaded.
3. Enjoy playing your retro games using the PS2 controller.

This post is going to be my development log for GMC Jam 11. I will try and keep it updated during the game jam.
Tonight is GameMaker Community Jam 11 (and my first ever game jam). I will have 72 hours to make a game from scratch using GameMaker. The theme for the game will be announced tonight. There is nothing more I can say as I sit here staring at the countdown timer, eagerly waiting to start.
I decided to redesign my website. Instead of making little changes to my code, I decided to delete all of my old website and use WordPress as the back-end. Maybe because I am lazy, or maybe because I really can not be bothered to hand-code my website anymore, but I believe WordPress will suit me well.
