« on: January 16, 2021, 14:36:43 »
Hi got myself a new computer after the other one was pretty much worn out . its 8 gb 128 gb i3 processor gen 10 .Proper SSD .  No excuses not to complete something this year.  Got all my software together like mtpaint DeleD blender etc. Already for the off.  No doubt I'll have loads of questions along the way and hopefully answer a few.

Still CBA to finish owt.

Same, not that I used to finish much anyway, engine for the game setup, all working lovely, bugs ironed out, even the ones that make you nigh-on a grey baldy, just need to add odds and ends, tart it up... [insert fart noise here] Ah, I cannot be arsed! :D

Tell you what got me as well, making levels, its such a dull aspect if you ask me, like, back in the day, if a game had a level/track/whatever editor (unlockable or not), I was on it like cheese on a pizza, playing nice, now... Chew!

Bit like ice, bare with me, I took the bin out last week and just, well, slid off the drive, over the path and on the road, lol, all the way trying to keep my balance, I just couldnt stop, I must of looked like Shakin' Stevens dancing on a coffee table that had a leg missing... I was like "Fooking hell!", though, once upon a time, I would of been on the look out for ice like that, running at it with reckless abandon and skid across it like I was on rails! :D

Now... Its just a chew! :/

Once something is a chew, well, if I can help it... I'm out! :D

Joys of getting old! ;)

I bought a new laptop last year. This when the (good reviewed) ones with the new Amd cpu's were in stock. The model is the Lenovo Legion 5 which has great reviews. Cpu Amd 8-core 4800H, 16Gb, 1tb ssd, nvidia 1650ti, 120Hz screen.

The refresh rate is really nice. Minecraft really plays a lot smoother. Scrolling through browser pages is really smooth also. The laptop does not get hot at all and I can not remember hearing the fan at all. I had recorded a 30 minute gameplay video and editing was smooth and the final render was ready in no time. I have not been making larger games or tools yet but compiling feels a lot faster also!

I think I wil get a new laptop during spring or early summer when the new Amd laptops are in stock. The new Amd 5800h cpu should be 23% faster. But it has been said there will be shortages this entire year. The amd laptop I have has only been in stock once since I bought it.

You guys are packing some serious hardware . This is a big upgrade for me as was using a HP stream 14 for 2 and a half years so this is excellent. Have a nice day.
