Thanks for the reply, I appreciate you're a busy man. Your videos are entertaining and pretty great etc etc I'm sure you know that already. Have you ever thought about vlogging some of your hobbies or anything like that?

Ah, man, I'd need more time. I have a full-time job and the videos themselves take some time to make, plus I need to do the work in order to have a subject to make a video about, and I even have several other hobbies. :) But right now I'm up early on Saturday morning working on a project that will probably become a video, though! And I appreciate the enthusiasm :)

Do you think you'll ever start uploading to YouTube more frequently?

Depends on what you mean by "this', but I think so!

This comment is definitely Off-Topic, but, I wanted to comment a "thank you" for creating playfun/learnfun, because I am intrigued to see how long it will actually take to "beat" various games, starting from just the basic input of me showing my meager skills at various NES games to it.

To chronicle the efforts of a couple of computers on various NES games, I actually went through the process of completely automating the process of converting the FM2 output to video files that are then automatically uploaded to youtube, which is hilarious to me (for reasons I'm not quite sure of).

If you're interested in checking it out, the channel is here :

I.. would like to point out, however, that I am not a programmer. I just sort of put this thing together just to see if it could even be done.

Anyway, thank you again!

What's next? Vatican City? Lichtenstein? Luxembourg, to take things to the next level?

Oops! Well, good thing that's wasn't a new achievement! :)

That's cool, but Bermuda is not a country. It's a British Overseas Territory. I should know because I'm British.

I have tried some experiments emulating with GPUs, but so far it has been much slower that way. The GPU isn't naively well-suited to emulation because of all the branching, unfortunately. I have a few more ideas so maybe something will work out...

Will there ever be a way to use a GPU instead of a CPU in the future?

After some more checking, I found that the second bug above seems to depend on the screen size. The bug disappears if I maximize the window of the program.
13328. noname ( – 26 Nov 2016 01:18:57 Happy 20th birthday Escape!! ]
Bug: If I download new solutions from the servers, then immediately quit the program without solving any levels, then when I restart the program, the downloaded solutions are lost. For now, it seems possible to get around this by solving any level (e.g. by replaying a stored solution to the end) after new solution download but before quitting.

Also, if a level has a height of 12, and there are more than four solutions in the player file, then the bookmark menu behaves a bit strange: when one tries to scroll down from the start to the fourth bookmark, suddenly the highlighting is lost. One can still choose that bookmark by pressing the Enter key. Or one can scroll further down and then back up to select the fourth bookmark.

I came here immediately after seeing the mac logo change. I should start creating more levels soon. I used to be so active at a younger age.

any chance to watch it somewhere else than youtube, for us behind the Great Firewall of China?

Ha ha. I have personally never been so fortunate!

I believe there are easy ways to remove the chain from the bike. The first is to take the bike to some guy you know who has already invested skill points in bicycle repair, and ask them to replace the chain, but only the first half where they remove the chain, without the part of buying a new chain and putting it on. The second is to go for a long trip with the bike, and break the chain accidentally when you're in some very remote place and have to push the bike ten kilometers on a hill to get to the nearest inhabited place.

... to be able to get it to work with the desired effect. Actually, I could implement one aspect in a normal way but it wouldn't be as cool; however, the other aspect will almost certainly be more complex. But I have some ideas now. Hopefully soon it will be ready for release.
