Logitech MX Master rocks

2015-04-11 19:26:02

I got a Logitech MX Master last week and it's been a real pleasure from the start. Especially with after my bad experience with the Razer Mamba, the Master is a bliss. I guess it's been a pure coincidence that I'm even at this point. The Master was o...


Razer Mamba Sucks

2015-04-01 09:48:54

The Razer Mamba is a 120 eur wireless mouse. I think it's fair to say that it's far and beyond into the expensive range of mice. But that's alright, I can spot that. I've been using this old default fuji mouse that I don't even know where I got it fr...


Input polling

So I'm building a canvas game. Actually I've been working on this thing for most of last year before being side tracked, again, to something else. Ok I digress. In this canvas game there's obviously an fps setting, which determines at how many frames...


Achievement unlocked

2015-03-29 17:51:26

Let's talk achievements. In particular Steam achievements. They are like badges. Whenever you achieve a certain programmer designed action in a game, you can unlock an achievement. A game can have anywhere between zero and over a hundred of such achi...

I've always been pretty good at math. Not like a genius or anything, but I get it and I can work with it, you know? Unfortunately I've not been that good at paying attention or spending time on homework. I didn't attend a particularly difficult level...

People have asked before to allow everyone to vote on their favorite demo. The problem with that is that it's very difficult to get voting systems right. People are bound to try and game the system. Regardless of how I feel about that, I just don't w...


options = options || false

2015-03-15 21:18:18

So let me try to clarify this, apparently, highly controversial and opinionated notion that I blurted into the world. Oh sorry about that, world. Frankly the whole thing was more about people seeming to forget you can approach false as y...


VR in 2d canvas

2015-03-05 22:33:21

I've been affected by the VR flu that's been going around lately. No, I think it's the future. It's going to be my future. And it's going to be big. But for now I want to publish an experiment related to that. I've been extending http://qfox.nl/we...


Raycasting 2.5d on canvas

2015-03-01 12:37:48

One of the simpler ways of getting a cheap but good 3d experience is raycasting. This is sometimes referred to as "2.5d" instead of 3d because you only get a horizontal free look. That is, you look left and right and behind you but not up or down. On...


Casting rays on 2d canvas

2015-02-28 11:48:59

A few months ago I started experimenting with raycasting. It's basically the concept of drawing an imaginary line between two points and checking if it hits anything solid on the way. In computer graphics it's one way to create a 3d-esque environment...
