I expect to start the migration to the latest IOS in preparation for alpha next WEEK!!! FINALLY!!!

I will have to purchase a iPhone 5 also. I tried waiting for the iPhone5s but o well!

Tonight I plan on working a little before having a break. Sunday will be a Cursed Realms day wrapping level one for alpha. It will be 85% for alpha as I will not do the voice overs until the text is locked in (read alpha II).

The list is almost gone!..

I will migrate next week and also do a little performance testing and blammo go for alpha I. This will be:

Load Screen -> Title Screen -> level one intro -> level one play -> level one ending

We will polish the living crap out of the game and then move on to alpha II which will most probably be 2-3 more levels of play. Then beta which will be the entire first episode levels 1-10.

More Later!

Working Hump Day!

Update: One last post from last night was the timing runs I was doing after playing … Not to bad for tech heads it maybe fun to see what is eating the gpu cpu up =)…Lots to work on there after alpha and even release to tune…

————————————

Here is a screen shot guide of my latest play through… getting there just needs more polish =)…

Started with the spawn of limp wimpy and dimpy from the south and crushed them…

Yup just green puddles for my turrets.

20130529-202431.jpg

I then cracked open some rocks to the east and released the first user corpses that wanted a fight..One gut bombed and took out two of my turrets but I had so many they went down easy… after some time…

20130529-202441.jpg

Yup dead with loot to grab. Looks like money and research points…weeeeeeee.

20130529-202449.jpg

I then took control of an imp after selling some far away homes and ran into the fog of war areas to be able to see them. I also put some medics on patrol around my base just in case more random spawns hit.

20130529-202507.jpg

I then expanded across the first bridge and put up more turrets….no telling whats out there with the fog of war.

20130529-202521.jpg

I took control of a medic and found another medic that tagged me a few times I took him out then found another where that minion died and I was forced back to overlord mode.

20130529-202537.jpg

Then trouble hit. A Pus Bucket emerged from a cave I dug. These are flesh tanks. He took out 4 turrets 3 imps and 2 minions before a turret batter blew him away.

20130529-202546.jpg

Here he is after my imps in a corner…

20130529-202612.jpg

Here he is blowing up one of my turrets with a swift hit…

20130529-202618.jpg

Then the foul beast fell over backwards and died in a hallway from a batter of turrets and 2 medics firing his slow butt down.

20130529-202624.jpg

Yes alpha sure feels close!! Then we can really polish this guy… I will need some performance time also as I see a little slow down in heavy combat. Over all VERY manageable. Break time then back to work!!!!

Got to get this thing done!… So I am having at it again tonight after jujitsu and a full work day!…. Get Er Done…. more as I go…

I hope everyone had a great holiday if you had one =)

Update: Got a lot done! More tomorrow…

Here is the current list =)… What a long long road this has been! My next game will have to be much simpler just for a break!

I went to go see my wife’s family. We had a good time drinking beer and playing pool/shuffle board/etc. Sadly, little cursed realms worked happened. However, I will be back on it tonight and all week driving to alpha. I did get the load and save menus in. I need to get the Sell button in I forgot that one. So you can sell your locations. Then back to playing and tweaking as I GO GO GO. Again if this was my day job we would be rocking on to the next game already =P

More pics tonight =)

MAN LIFE IS BUSY!

Tying up loose ends like the load and save menus as I used the editor before 😉

Here is the closest tornado to me when the brakout happened.

This is the north side of the storm from my backyard.

Here are some storm chasers chasing this very storm…

NUTS!!! and that is CLOSE to me. Wow.. getting that storm shelter this year some time for sure…

Now back to playing and fixing Cursed Realms… I am planning on (GIVEN MY WIFE DOES NOT PLAN MY WEEKEND AGAIN) starting the conversion to the latest OS soon which means alpha will be shortly after that. I will have to get an iPhone 5 soon to be able to test on the new screen. So many expenses argh… Anyway I will post some pics today as I have not done so lately. =)

Still playing and polishing

I wish I had more time right now but everything is hitting the fan at once. My home AC went down so I have had to spend a lot of time trying not to get destroyed financially by these con men called ac salesmen. I had one try to sell me a fan for 700 bucks I found online for 280. A serious time suck!… Anyway I am playing and making sure everything is working well. I will try to post some pretty pics tonight if I get a chance to work around all the air conditioning mess. Good times! I hope all of your days are going great so far!

Welp came in 4rth in Gi and 5th in no GI

Update here is my no gi fight part 1 I am in the white pants far side fighting a 23 year old 14 years my jr .. He had endless energy!!

Part 1

Part2

Wow what a butt kicking. I only have an abrasion on my lip and a bum shin from a shin to shin hit. Over all not to bad. I think I was about to die on the 5th fight. I had NO gas left. For my first set of sanctioned fights I feel I did ok. Not great and I hate HATE losing…. This is no excuse but I did not like how they moved my adult 30-40 division into the 20-30 division loaded with 21 year olds. I still shoulda done better but the energy levels and amount of training time available to younger kids makes it a bit hard on us older folks. I know for sure next time I am cutting down to 165-175. All my competitors where tall and lanky as they cut to my level. I cut from 196 to 178. I coulda easily lost 4 more pounds. My sons did GREAT. My youngest got a gold and a silver. My oldest pulled the same as me a 4th and 5th place. Tough stuff!!! Making men of all of us.

Now tomorrow I will be back on cursed realms and there will be no distractions as I do not plan on competing for at least 4 months. Amazing day… and I am tired as hell and ready for some fattening food and BOOZ…. so tomorrow Cursed Realms. I hope you all have a great day!

Not real proud of
This fight but it’s one of the ones I won
