    In-game Twitter RSS feed

    Just for fun I implemented a Twitter RSS feed into the Link-Dead main menu. Might come in handy for keeping players updated.

    Started using libcurl which seems like an amazing library for fetching files from the internet. I have to write a game auto-update unit.

    Menu preview

    When creating this context menu for GUI I had these things in mind:
    speed of creation (shouldn’t take more lines of code to create the menu than the menu has items)
    ease of creation (very simple interface that will be handed to mod-developers to create custom game menus)
    automatization (don’t do what a computer can do for you; in the preview below you can see that I add all console variables to the menu – automatically)

    Soldat clone videos

    Subscribe to my Youtube channel! There is a little feature there in the playlists if you can find it called “Soldat clones”. It’s game videos that I find of games that are published or still in development which I can see are a direct inspiration from Soldat. It’s a little hobby of mine gathering them.

    Today I added variable association for editable context menu items. Can be used for config options eg. editing your name and saving to file.

    I’m coding a very simple GUI based on context menus which will be useful for pretty much every aspect of the Link-Dead interface.

    Btw. in the Network Test when climbing you could move back and forth. I forgot to ask if anyone found that useful/fun?

    Just found about wt. It’s a platform for writing web pages in c++. Finally I can do some web code on my own. Anyone tried it?
