XDB Released!

Posted on November 22, 2011 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (3)

I just started a week-long break from school so I decided to finish XDB (X Database), a lightweight database solution for REALbasic developers. Check out the Developer Tools page for more details. 



P.S. I have discontinued development on XPrefs, please use XDB Light as a replacement. 

More About... Everything?

First I want to get product announcments out of the way, then we can get to other, more different topics. 

Dock Clock 3 development is going very slowly. I have been running into problems with the large nober of options. I am thinking of rewriting a lot of the data handling systems becuase I don't think it makes for expansion. On the other hand there will be many more gorgeous presets included! 

Podcast Assistant 1.6.3 is being reviewed for the Mac App Store right now. Windows and Linux versions will be available when the mac version passes it's review. This version fixes indentation, an XML error, and a bug that caused a crash when the last edited file was moved. 

iFactor is a new product that I will be introducing on the Mac app store and on Windows. It is a multiplication board game that is actually quite addicting. It can also be used as an educational tool. More details about that in the future. 

XPrefs 1.6.6 will be released as soon as I find time to finish the Developer Tools page. It will be a place for me to put all my tiny utilities that I make for my development process that other developers might want. For instance I could never decide on SKU numbers for my apps in the Mac App Store so I decided to write an SKU generator. My SKU numbers are generated from a 64-bit hash of the application's unique identifier. I will be releasing that app on the dev tools page as well. Oh, and all the developer tools will be free! 

Aaaalright, now to the more exciting stuff. 

I have been working on Fragmented Galaxy again but from a different angle. I actually drew up some desgn docs and have a road map for development. I already have a very nice OpenGL game engine set up and it even generates galaxies of stars. (I am adding planets next) While it is only 2D right now, It will progress to 3D when the economy, world building, and data handling all check out. 

As a final note I have been listening to this a lot recently. 

Thanks for reading,

I switched the main page for 10101 Software to this blog instead of the previous staic page. This will allow you to post directly to the front page and I won't have to post big news items twice.

My trusty preferences solution from Dreystone Software finally died today with the release of Real Studio 2011r2. So I decided to make my own preference file solution that makes plain-text XML plist documents. I also decided to make it free! I call it XPrefs. 

Download an example project with XPrefs module included here. (this example also comes with the awesome color well that I made) If you have any suggestions, improvements, or questions just leave a comment! 

This new preferences solution should clear up the errors that some people got when launching Dock Clock 3. 

I hope you are having a great summer! 


Blog, Birthday, Sick...

Posted on April 12, 2011 at 2:41 PM Comments comments (2)
I have been thinking about a schedule for these blogs and have settled on once a month. That way blogging doesn't consume my life and I can still let you guys know that I still exist on a regular basis. 

I have been very busy with school work for the past two weeks (midterms here at MSOE) so I didn't post on my birthday. I am glad to announce that I turned 21 on March 31. No birthday party yet because I'm waiting until Spring break to celebrate with my family. 

Down to actual business though. The next application I want to put on the App Store is Podcast Assistant. I don't plan on adding any new features but expect some extra polish and behind-the-scenes changes. Oh, also expect it to stay free. 

On a gloomier note I seem to be recovering from either the flu or a terrible cold. I missed 2 days of school but I went back today even though I don't feel all that great because I have to take those mid-term exams. 


Dock Clock 3 Released!

Good news everyone! Dock Clock is available on the Mac App Store! The reason I haven't been blogging much is because Dock clock was in review so there was nothing to report. 

I do have news on the final GUI though. Have a screenshot: 

Notice that I got rid of the drag and drop elements list on the left. I realized that it was a very clunky interface. Now the elements can be enabled via a checkbox in the editor. 

So go out and get it and support 10101 Software!

Thanks for your support!
