A large part of the time I spent on Bimbo Holdem Poker was devoted to creating a good UI system. Buttons, sliders and other components had to be easy to add with code, work well within the game, and look decent. I’ve now begun porting some of that functionality to Java. So far I’m using JavaFX, which comes with many upsides, but also some downsides when it comes to implementing complex behaviour.
Does this mean I will be porting Bimbo Holdem Poker to Java? So far, I don’t know. This is a required step for doing so, but I may just use this system for something else, or nothing at all.
I felt that “Gardamuse’s Blog” wasn’t a very interesting name. It took some thinking, but I feel like “Blushing Defeat” does resonate quite well with the kind of content I usually make. Now just remains registering a domain name, and then we’ll see how far this will take us :)
I’ve now enabled comments via Disqus on blog posts. To get there, click on the title of a post, and you should be able to comment. If it works well enough, I am probably going to add commenting to a few more places as well.
Because DeviantArt is not the ideal place for games, be them NSFW or otherwise, I felt like I could probably use my own website. By the advice of a friend I looked into finding a good solution for that. Thus, here we are.
The idea is that my work will be accessible from here. While not much yet, Bimbo Holdem Poker is already hosted here. Click that link, or access it from the navigation bar.
