Although, having said that, I am grumpy at xmas. Mainly because the missus is demanding to put up a tree this weekend and it's only the middle of November !!!!!

Is this a female thing? Same here. Aaand once Christmas is over it has to come down within days...doesn't matter that it's nice snowy outside and the Christmas spirit is still lingering. I guess it's like a task to them. Do it way earlier so they're not late and once task completed, pack it up, put it away and focus on the next task...

No idea why you can’t just put “Vulkan” and it’ll drop down to OpenGL if it’s not available.

The AGK Guys like to add words rather than be concise and logical.

That's your game/tech demo right there

Go on, I'll bite. What's your thinking, sir?

Pac Man-esque. Christmas tree sale in forest. You chop down trees so you don't have to buy them while missus(s) chases you. Until you chop up a purse, then you go after the missus. Should be good therapy

It's meant to be a demo, not a game :)

I started digging out all the stuff I did for the old C64 fake loader I did in Damnation Alley today to see if I can re-use any of it in a C64 themed Xmas demo. It's crap code, though. Lazy, rushed and mostly hard-coded rubbish. Lucky I have a good hatchet for chopping out the bad bits :)

You guys are late. My wife is already done, decorating the house and setting up the trees. My arguments for "hey it isn't past Dead Sunday already" were joyfully smashed to the side.  ;D
But I love that season anyway, so I don't mind. Who cares what the neighbors think.  :P

Me neither. The only firm idea I have is doing something C64'ish. Planning to look at some YouTube videos for ideas this afternoon. These things tend to do a lot of graphics stuff so a limited system probably would work better for me.

Sounds neat. i'm just testing code out to see if I can push blitz3d in an odd way. The usual graphical trickery generally found in
demos.
