Streaming sponges...now theres a thought

I think there were quite a few that took onboard the whole sponge idea and practiced and improved their soaking abilities with beer

I'm going to make a public apology for picking on Ravey and his unfortunate involvement in some great projects that didn't always make it. That's the price for being ahead of the game - sometimes the game ends before the winner is announced.

Looks like Social Arcade will pay dividends

Yes, the convention was very productive, at the top of the todo list, we should be getting a new command:
MAKE OBJECT SPONGE ObjID, Size, Wetness

The videos are very large so I can't upload to You Tube or Soapbox. I'm also banned from uploading to Vimeo which does not allow business vids. Anyone know where hour long vids can go or should I split them?

Rick, can you also make the presentations available? I've just been looking at Ravey's GDK presentation and a lot of the code he shows doesn't appear too well (red on black on a bright day).

Well that's all fine and dandy for me, but what about all those other poor souls who didn't get to see it live?

Actually, I also meant to ask about example code - last year, Mike posted his model-loading code - what are the chances of Dave & Mike posting their code this year?

Am I famous yet?... Nice video in the Social Arcade.

Cheers Dave, and Happy Birthday!

What's this We Won?.. <me walks up to the podium>.. I'd like to thank the Academy, my fellow nominees, my team mates, facebook and of course Bounty Bob without whom my love of platform games would never have seen the light of day.. LoL

Seriously, Grats Team, let's take this all the way now!

Cheers!

The slapping of the forehead is an old english custom.

Well...when i say "old" i mean i invented it 30 seconds ago, which is in the past so it counts
