When VLC Doesn’t Update Anymore

Bug

Most of us probably ran into a bug in some application at one point. Sometimes it’s not very obvious, e.g. a random crash, while other times you may know that, if you for example perform certain five steps it will crash. But what do you do when you find an issue? Do you just avoid…


NightlyBuilds have been update!

Looking at the last news entry on the NightlyBuilds website, it seems like it has nearly been two years since I last update the Nightly Builds. https://nightlybuilds.ch/ One of the reasons I didn’t bother as much to keep them updated was, because we at SFML now have setup a Continues Integration system which allows anyone…


Greenlight has been broken for a while

Usually I tend to stay away from news that just broke, mostly because it seems so click-baity to write about it and often people are just panicking for no reason until a few days later when things are explained to them again more clearly. But this time, I just had a thought and wanted to…


SFML Games – March (2016)

A bit delayed but here we go! New Games This section only lists games that I was actually able to play for a bit. Squid Blaster This game feels a bit like a mix of Space Invaders and a classic side-scroller. You are a turtle and are fighting against the evil squids, eat fish to…


Thoughts: Social Media Customers

This is the first post of a new “category”. Every now and then I find myself thinking about some topic I find interesting. Usually I just tweet about it, but the space there is always limited, so for the future, when I have to say more about a topic, you’ll find a blog post here….


SFML Games – February (2016)

Maybe this will actually turn into a monthly thing again, who knows?! New Games As last month this section contains only games for which binary files have been provided, so I could actually try them out. Cendric: An RGP Platformer I have run into this one quite a while back and was especially excited, because…


SFML Games – January (2016)

Due to exams I had been quite busy during January and February and only now came back to look at all the newly created SFML games. However since I don’t really feel like summarizing discussions or important things going on in the community, I didn’t want to make this another SFML News post and thus…


Convert EPS to SVG – Cisco Icons for yEd

I wasted like one or two hours on this and thought, I’d make a quick post, so others don’t have to waste their time in the future. Convert EPS to SVG If you just want to convert some EPS files to an SVG file, all you need is Inkscape and then use the following command…


A look at CLion 1.0

For the development of Synth Guitar my Ludum Dare Compo entry I decided to use JetBrains’ CLion as my IDE. Ever since writing my most popular post about MinGW-w64 and an older EAP version I played around with the thought of trying it out, but never found the right project for it. For a year…


Ludum Dare Compo #32

Ever since 2012 when I kind of first discovered Ludum Dare, I wanted to fully participate in one of the compo, but for the past two years the dates usually clashed with some other event of mine. However in similar fashion I participated twice in the SFML Game Jam, of which the upcoming 4th as…
