Bimbo Holdem Poker is now open source

17 March 2019

Bimbo Holdem Poker is now open source. Checkout the Bimbo Holdem Poker repository.

I released Bimbo Holdem Poker the 17 January 2016, after about three months of development, or half a year counting Bimbo Blackjack which I made as a first step towards creating a more involved erotic casino game. BHP have had some updates since, with many talented artists contributing both art and writing for characters, but due to limitations with flash, and general lack of time on my part, I’ve been thinking for a time of opening the source for BHP, so that the code can be put to new use, should anyone be interested.

When I recently found out about a very good first transformation game from deviant-artist Skaiyawn I figured they might have use for UI library I developed for BHP. At the same time as this, I was also contacted by a contributor to Strip Poker Night at the Inventory, looking to check out the BHP source code, if it was available. SPNatI, incidentally, is another erotic poker game using kisekae art, but open source, that I had never heard of before! Naturally I was amazed by this coincidence of events and decided that I better make haste in getting the codebase online, and so I did.

For anyone who is interested in using the source, check out the readme in the repository! My code is all MIT-licensed, but it is not just my code in the repo. If anyone makes something fun of it, I hope you get in touch! I’m always interested in seeing new fun things being made :)

Sound Queuer, a small Autohotkey script

04 August 2018

This is a small autohotkey script I came up with and thought that someone else might have fun with too. It queues random sound files of your choosing each time you press a hotkey and then plays those sounds until the queue is empty. The idea is that if you’re playing a bimbo character you can quickly play a sound whenever they do something stupid, or as a reward when they do something good. It could be used in some entirely different way too, the effect depends entirely on which sounds you use. Be aware that the script comes with a few sounds I’ve copied from some videos.

Instructions

  1. Make sure you have Autohotkey installed.
  2. Download the SoundQueuer and extract the zip file.
  3. Place all the sounds you want to use in the sounds folder located next to the .ahk file. Remove any of the default sounds that you don’t want.
  4. Start the script by double clicking sound-queuer.ahk.
  5. By default there are two hotkeys: Alt+Q to play one sound and Alt+W to play ten sounds. Press either to start using the script!

It is easy to change the hotkeys to any key you want. For instance, if you want to run this script each time you use a specific ability in-game, you can bind it to the same key as that ability. To modify the script, just open it in a plain text editor. If you haven’t used autohotkey before, don’t worry! The script is well documented and there are links to help pages that will show you how to modify a hotkey.

If you come up with a more inspired name, let me know in the comments ;)

Cookies

02 August 2018

I have now added a cookie policy page and accompanying pop-up notice to comply with EU regulations. I currently only use cookies to enable Disqus (the comment plugin) and Google Analytics (for collecting anonymous usage statistics), but you can read all about it on that page (although not much more, it’s quite minimal for now).

I am quite annoyed by this aspect of the data protection law. It is a very important law to have, but some things clearly don’t make sense in my mind. Cookie policy should definitely be up to the user, but the browser should have that functionality, not require it of every single website. But then, even disabling cookies entirely is very flimsy protection. If you really want to protect your data you need a VPN, or better yet, something like Tor. I’m not sure that much is necessary, but it is if you want your data to be secret.

I’m ranting, but the pop-up is up now, and those are some thoughts about it. To end on a lighter note, this post will probably go up alongside another post announcing a script I’ve written (not quite done yet) that might be fun for someone :)

Bimbo Holdem Poker 1.2.2: Voice Lines Browsing

19 January 2018

A long-standing feature request for BHP has been to be able to browse character “voice” lines in the Trophy Room. In version 1.2.2 this is now finally possible. The update is live now, enjoy! :D
