I have basically finished designing the adventure now, besides - gulp - testing it. Pale And the input 'device', and the guidebook, and actually writing her birthday card...

Haha, WEEDLES EVERYWHERE!

I think the other problem I have is that they expect you to use their forum or google how syntaxes work at times where I don't think you should have to. They justify this as, in real life programmers have to work everything out for themselves and search the internet for syntax guides so this is good practice. But I'm a complete novice. Save that sort of thing for a time when I'm doing a project, not during an introduction to a concept that also secretly requires an understanding of a syntax we have not covered yet.

Google maps told me it would be about a 6 hour walk. It lied.

I've had this problem so many times. I always forget that walking speed to Google is actually serious power-walking... and that's on flat terrain let alone the rolling hills I imagine you were walking over.

No, that's just bad teaching. Maybe for a couple of the advanced-level homework tasks you could say, 'you might want to Google/forum how to widget a wadget', but early days (and quite a few of the later days to be honest!) you should be given all the material you need.

Moment of truth: the game is finished. In theory. Now to test it. Pale

Chuffing hell. Did you stay awake all night? Incidentally I quite easily beat Google's walking speed - over a maximum of an hour on flat terrain.

nah, between 1 and 5 I did sleep a little, but it was only in restless 20 minute naps, I could never quite sleep sleep.

Same, which I guess is what it's designed for. As an idea of "how quickly will I get from this shop to this spot for lunch" it works just fine, as a tool for walking insane distances for hiking in picturesque terrain, it assumes a much pacier pace than is enjoyable.

Sorry to change the topic to a much worse one.

One of my closest friends committed suicide yesterday. She's not dead yet by technicality, but has done herself irreversible brain damage due to lack of oxygen, and apparently it's only a matter of time before they 'switch her off'. It's not a complete surprise: she is (was) aggressively bipolar, and had tried it before and 'didn't feel any relief that she'd survived'. It's still not great. (Also: she was being sectioned at the time. I'm not sure how she got out to do it, but I'm pretty damn unimpressed with the no doubt underfunded overworked hospital staff right now.)

The last words we exchanged were her saying if we (self and another close friend) wanted any ACNH DIYs. Obviously we didn't appreciate what this might mean at the time. Anyway, I've spent the last hour wrestling with ACNH's terraforming setup, creating a little island with a gravestone on and some shrubs (she was named after a flower but that one isn't in the game 🤷 ). Now that it's done I can't make up my mind whether it's aggressively twee or deeply disrespectful or what.

I haven't cried yet. Couple of moments where it was threatened. Hasn't come out. Wish it would. I've got the afternoon off work and I've just played ACNH and got on with making my girlfriend's game as normal. I know that different people feel grief in different ways, but I feel like I should feel... sadder.


Not sure why I'm burdening y'all with this, but thanks for reading anyway. I would request a little leeway if I'm a bit snappy in the next few weeks.

Fuck. Sorry to hear that man.

The only thing I'll say is; how you feel is how you feel. Don't judge your emotions by anyone else's, and don't feel guilty if you feel any more or less sad than you "should" at any time.

I absolutely agree with Buska - there's no 'right' way to feel and moods can and will fluctuate a lot. It's a lot to process. Hopefully coming her gives you a distraction and/or a place to vent when you need to. Make sure you have and utilise who you need to as support.

I third what the two lads above have said. I appreciate this is a doubly-awful situation, but from personal experience I can say that you shouldn't worry about having to act a certain way to prove you feel how you feel. I'm sorry for your loss.

Thank you all gents. It still seems not to have hit me and while I appreciate what y'all are saying, when I'm talking to our mutual friend who was there when they 'switched her off' who is completely broken up about it, my inability to say anything other than 'I'm vaguely sad' is... well it's a thing.


Part of that may be that I spent the last two days finishing, and then showing off, Ladyquest XXX! (I'm aware of the mood whiplash in this post but I've been working on this for months and, despite other sad circumstances, I can't help being overjoyed by its completion.) This is neither a dating/sexing sim nor contains explicit content, but is/was named after The Lady's 30th. I spent Saturday running into more bugs than in that Paper Mario-like game, to the point where I was thoroughly sick of the sight of my beautiful offering by the time I went to bed and decided that if The Lady needed a world map, she could draw her own sodding map.

Then Sunday afternoon came and she played it and really enjoyed it, and there were many sighs of relief from yours truly. It crashed three times (the third because of my hastily implemented fix for the second) and I'd have liked to add some more details and functionality, but otherwise she liked the gifts and she liked the writing and she was impressed by the scope and she's flattered that I took the time. It took her two hours-ish to finish, and might have lasted longer had I not been there offering clues. Apparently it is the second-best birthday present she's ever had. The first was a kitten. I can't hope to compete.

So, to bring this back around to the sad part of the post: Saturday was spent working hard on LQXXX, Sunday was spent showing off LQXXX, and maybe now my emotions will finally have space to breathe.

You should have a kitten accompanying the player throughout the journey, you fool!

Onto your serious note though - the offer is always open if you need someone to talk to, Balla. Thumbs Up!

I know, Jay, and I am forever grateful. Smile

And d'oh! Duh! The obvious solution!
