Day 12

Someone I haven’t seen in a while is in town, and earlier I made plans to meet up with them. This meant that I wouldn’t be able to do any serious work on the game today, so I decided to work on something small instead. As the day went on and the meeting time got pushed back, I kept finishing up what I’d been doing and moving onto other, smaller things. In the end, here’s what I have to show for today’s work:

Major Arcana Cards: I sourced some public domain Tarot Cards images on the internet, then converted and resized all 22 Major Arcana cards into one image that I could load into the game.

Cancellations: This is something small that’d I’d been putting off for a while. Before I worked on this, you couldn’t go backwards in menus. As it turns out, it wasn’t a hard thing to add after all – I just kept a history of action numbers as I went, and the whole thing worked out a lot easier than I thought it would. The new code also lets you cycle through your ready heroes.

Icon: I’ve been using the old sprite from the guardian as the icon for the game’s executable. Just a small thing, but I’ve changed that to something more relevant to the game – a wheel of fortune.

Music: With the rest of the evening, I started messing around with a few possible tunes for the game. They sound alright on the guitar, but it’s going to take a while before they sound good on the computer.

Right then. I’m done for the day.
