      I downvoted you because I think comments should be statements, not just expressions ;-)

      (Tell us what’s behind the link and I’d happily remove the downvote).

      2D C99 game engine. 3800 LOC now. I’m finally through UTF-8 grapheme -> glyph mapping, now onto font drawing, so I’m writing texture atlas generation and rendering for bitmap fonts.

        Everyweek, I see your update. One day I hope to see the game engine in action.

          I’ve only missed commits on 3 days since January 4th. 42 commits and somewhere around 800 LOC last weekend. I’m… getting there. I’m going to have something to show at some point.

            Keep at it man, it’s just nice to see these updates.

          Happy to see at least one person is still doing this.

          Write a software rasterizer too, if you get the chance. Not only is it cool, but I learned an incredible amount from it. https://chrishecker.com/Miscellaneous_Technical_Articles#Perspective_Texture_Mapping

          The information when presented in this fashion seems so intuitive, I wonder how long they had to think about this to get it to its final state. Overall a pretty good read!

            I am going to sit down and give Intuit some money to do my taxes. On the bright side, I should get a little bit of a return back. I also want to polish up a couple pull requests I have open and get those closed out.

              Please consider joining me in boycotting Intuit. I did so after I heard about them lobbying against IRS run filing solutions and tricking users into paying when they tried to use free file.

              My fed and state taxes aren’t ‘simple’ but I found doing them manually takes maybe 20% longer than using one of these tools. I’m also happy that these companies don’t get any more of my income/tax/asset data.

                My brother told me that CreditKarma lets you file for free and you can also itemize deductions. But it looks like Intuit is feeling the heat and is acquiring them! I may have to resort to manually doing them.

                1. 1

                  This tbh, though as a student my taxes are fairly simple. I still refuse to use any Intuit product.

                    I got my GeForce GTX 1650 working just fine. Haven’t tried gaming with it though.

                  1. 2

                    I wonder how many of these issues are by design.

                      Gonna continue my work from last week working on OpenClaw (https://github.com/pjasicek/OpenClaw) to implement xbrz scaling.

                      Last week:

                      • i scoped out what changes I have to make (theoretically)
                      • got localdev to work (somewhat)
                      • looked at xbrz implementations (ScaleFX Retroarch, 6xbrz Snes9x)

                      This week:

                      • gonna actually break things locally
                      • see if there’s something i can do other than scaling to solve the problem

                      Also will be ricing out a new install on my desktop

                      1. 5

                        I’m thinking of working on OpenClaw (https://github.com/pjasicek/OpenClaw). Specifically to see if I can implement xbrz scaling.
