Skype us for articles: we will write them for you

category: general [glöplog]
Fellow sceners,

we've understood that you're not interesteed by spending few minutes writing an article. We can solve this for you: you skype us at hugi and you send us sample of your work (gfx, mod, code, ...). We have then a discussion using skype and we write the article with the content send and your explanations given by talking to us: we can make an article from an interview, yes we can and we are ready to. So if interesteed, simply skype adok or email him with your skype ID and he will call you.

thank you for your attention.

Just to let you know, I have 2-3 articles in my mind that I really want to finish for HUGi. I just don't know when I'll do so. At least I am trying to get my GP32 demo released this week so that I can move on to my other coding activities that I left behind. Sorry again for being more occupied by GP handhelds than working on what we've planned up :)

i want to write one about the existential questions thrown up by "john thaw" by fearmoths
However I hope the codes I send yesterday and today please your mind and will help for the super mega effect we have told about.

On the Super Turrican II thread Kb have answered quite important stuff about oldskool rendering effect, hope this will help to get back that very special feeling.

ep: Thanks for providing the docs. Your help really counts! It would be a good idea to start reading them and try something, I am really motived to try to learn something new about the Windows API from this project.

Magic: It's a bit early but maybe I can do something. Hopefully an article can be written in an evening, I just don't know why are we so lazy with articles then ;P

dipswitch: It's already one year since I started working on it and can't wait to get rid of it (and it will still suck for such a long period). I am sorry but this will be off-party release. Normally I was thinking to delay it a bit so that I port it to GP2X and release it at GP2X competition (for the money ;) but then I decided to get rid of the old project as soon as possible. This is the only way I can move on :(

Optimus: the 2 first sources are really short.

The assembly listing is less than 200 lines long and well commented and do the trick quickly and efficiently. The second in C++ seems more system friendly but is also really short with less than 50 lines and also well commented (in French but I can translate it if really needed), however the identifiers will really help you understand what is going on.

Get rid of the exe (screensaver) because it doesn't help in this goal. And for the last send, this is a good source who do the trick under all major platforms we are aiming to release the XXX (we keep the surprise til the end): Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.

It's definitively something easy to do and really worth the low low cost in time.

Total HUGI domination.

Good luck with your GP32X, please provide us with a photo of this beast.

As I don't use Skype, you'll have to dictate your articles to ep. Or simply write them the traditional way.

Ok: my skype ID is ... Should I give it or not? What will happen? I'll do it once I'll be convinced you'll not call me all the time! Send email to Claus and he will provide you with my Skype ID, if you're serious only! I know pouet now! :)


Meanwhile I've released a small intro to promote hugi. It's really nice 2K but before releasing it I need to host it. It's no more possible to submit directly to pouet so how to ?

Thanks for GOOD advice.
