ZSNES Project Complete!

Hi peoples. I love old SNES games. I also love that I can use an emulator to play them, and that ZSNES is the people’s emulator of choice.

However, I’m not a fan of some shortcomings when it comes to the emulator’s user-friendliness. Specifically, it’s kind of lame that you have to reset your video configuration every time you launch the application, and that you have to use the crappy GUI to browse and load a ROM.

So, I fixed it!

You can download my ZSNES Launcher application that will register the file extensions for ROMs so that all you have to do is double-click to run a game. You can download the application here. The application contains the latest version of ZNES, so there’s no need to download it separately.

In other news, I’ve taken some time to make some adjustments to my site, so please check out the PROJECTS link at the top of the page. I intend to post updates to nifty doodads I’m working on.

If people like what I’ve done with the ZSNES Launcher application, I may expand on it and use an official signed certificate to distribute it.

Flash Games Are Fun!

And it’s even more fun to make them.

I’ve been wanting to make games since I was a kid, but now I’m finally old/skilled enough to be able to do just that. After months of discussion and brainstorming with a friend of mine, and a brilliant coworker’s idea of having Code Bashes after work, the three of us finally became motivated enough to try our hand at making a Flash game. It seems fitting, as I’m sure you’ve noticed that many of the great indie developers of today got their start doing Flash games. Plus, we each have years of experience coding in ActionScript from work. We can easily be as awesome as those other game development peoples.

We’re being slightly secretive about certain aspects of the game, and much of the design is still to be determined. In other words, don’t be TOO impressed with its epicness, because there’s much more to come. I’ll attempt to keep new features and updates posted here. Currently the game is codenamed “Blue Cheese Fries” for some particular reason I don’t feel like explaining at the moment.
