META: He's baaaaack

I just wanted to let you know that I am back in Texas and working on the HeroMachine 3 Alpha save code once again. The old way I thought was working is, in fact, not working. So it's back to the drawing board, but the new approach is promising in its early stages. We'll see.

I should have the last contest results posted this afternoon.

    I would also like to welcome you back, Jeff. 🙂 Hope Oregon treated you well.

    Thanks for the warm welcome-backs, guys. Oregon was awesome. Walking back off the plane into 90 degree Austin heat and high humidity was like walking into warm spit after the incredibly nice weather we’d had all weekend.

    On the HeroMachine front, it’s been a very successful afternoon. I have the basics of the loading system in place — I can hit “Save”, close the app, reopen it, hit “Load” and the character I saved comes up. I haven’t got layer order nailed yet, but it’s coming along nicely.

    Welcome back. I hope you had a good time in Oregon.

    Is good to know the Save feature is advancing, I’m looking forward to it. I haven’t made almost any characters because I been waiting for the save feature.

    Ahh, the infamous ‘left hand’ bug will be vanquished once and for all!!

    Saving ought be useful to “sketchy” characters quickly (b/w, no color) for later refinement. Also, should be a nice safety net for the crashing which can occur.

    I must ask…did any of your oxen die?

    Good to have you back Jeff, and good to hear that you got to enjoy some nice, non-Texas weather. I lived in Uvalde briefly as a kid and I definitely don’t miss the mind-killing heat/humidity. 😀

    Great that your back from Texas Jeff, did you have fun?

  13. Matt says:

    I ment to say “in” not “from” by the way

  14. Jeff Hebert says:

    We had a really good time, thanks for asking. Oregon sure is pretty; the temperatures were mild, the weather gorgeous, the mountains amazing, and the people really nice.
