    Refactoring Progress

    Let me make it clear to everyone. I haven't spent months reworking MD to just "give up certain scenes". Fuck that. Today I have spent most of the day on MD and I feel with the new cache we are making miles of progress. Its faster and easier to share code across the Javascript Layer which will have major benefits coding it. Worst case scenario, we rebuild specific scenes from the ground up. And thats literally the worst case.

    An odd fear

    When I was practicing Aikido (for a very short period of time) a very long time ago, what we did was a little meditation after the warm-up before going into techniques (I think it's called zazen?). It was there to clear the mind of any thoughts and I think it worked. I sometimes did it at home and I always found that my voice was comparably weaker after doing it. During meditation, you don't do much - you just stare, if your eyes are open. It was because of it that a very original fear/thought occurred to me. It's about language. Only after reading a bit on language did I realize speaking is hard. I mean, you just learn it in infancy, so you never really understand how hard it actually is. The other day, while I was waiting on something, I saw a little girl chasing a dog, trying to feed it some crackers or something. She kept calling it 'Am'. What she was trying to say was 'Ham', but I suppose that's slightly harder to pronounce. In the absence of the word, she just imitated the sound it makes. Personally, I would have called it 'hau' - and I guess most people would. You have 'howl' in English, don't you? Dogs howl. It takes a long time, if you are educated, to accept the idea that language and words evolved from the sounds that we imitated. All around us, animals and plants make sounds, and the wind, and water, and rocks as well. We didn't come up with nouns in a fancy way, we simply tried to imitate the sound a thing does to 'name' it. Some people on this big planet still have issues with language - and you can see how hard it is for them to speak. They speak from the abdomen, and they probably feel pain in the guts trying to get out sounds. It is so unnatural to them. You see, sounds travelled from the gut to the throat and later to the mouth - but that was a long journey. So what is my fear? I thought 'If you meditate long enough, could you forget to speak?' The thing about speaking is that not only it is hard (which I always felt it to be, even if I am eloquent and if you get me started on a topic I like, say goodbye to your evening), but it's often so...pointless. Speaking of which - as far as I know, the guy who came up with Aikido didn't explain the techniques to his students, he just showed them. I feel so comfortable in my silence I'm afraid I might actually go like 'forget it, they'll get it if I use gestures'. Hey, I could pretend to be a mute! I know of a writer who pretended to be crazy and had - in his words - 'a wonderful time' in the facility, among loonies (well, he also tried to fake his suicide to get rid of his wife, so he was slightly eccentric - or not?)ā€¦ but then I'd have to learn sign language, which I really don't wanna. If I have to speak coherently, why bother learn *another* language, when I already know a few? This is my fear. That one day, I'll just wave goodbye to eloquence and growl when I really have to. I think that'll be the day I learn German.

    Refactoring Progress

    Wow, you are on a coding marathon i see nice nice What i meant about "giving up certain scenes" was that i am happy even with that compromise as long as the rest is usable. I was thinking of the puzzle scenes. Of course if you have any sort of solution to that i would be more than happy, i just don't want you to hit a wall when it comes to flash to html conversion. Now that i am thinking, actionscript is pretty similar to javascript, and everything done in those scenes can be ported to js ..maybe i will try to do that or at least extract all the actionscript code from the old fla sources. Just imagine md in html, would fully work on mobile/tablet ..the most important step towards a better layout very few still look for browsergames from a pc , and in the upcomming years we will remain one of those few games that target just a small minority. Having it work on mobile (flashless) browsers could mean enormous boost, not just survival. p.s the recent developments in my life (little baby girl) made me have a lot more time away from the pc and this makes me much more creative, i can't wait to share all my recent ideas for md with you

    I was taking a closer look at the sidebar and I noticed a couple of minor things (see red "circles"). I compared with old screenshots and it seems most of them were always like this, but the ropes used to be aligned (don't really know if it's this update's fault) -- check the other screenie. I know it's not a big deal, but I figured it wouldn't hurt reporting it here

    I have some ideas, all of the puzzles I am thinking of shouldnt pose too much of a problem. Will need a custom scene type but thats not hard.

    You're right about the old part. I never played it either, but I accidentally saw it's Let's play on YT. The story being what it is, I thought it's interesting how the game actually manages being memorable.
