Monday, August 24th, 2009

My word game for the iPhone is finally done and available in the iTunes App Store, more details including the App Store link are available here:

Not chock full of whizzy graphical effects but I think the actual game play turned out well and the result is a casual but fun little game.

The Next Remember? Update

Saturday, August 15th, 2009

When I wrote the first version of Remember? back in 1988 a maximum year of 2018 seemed like a pretty safe bet. But, here we are 21 years (!) later and it’s actually in striking distance. And a couple die-hards schedule things far enough in advance that bumping into it is becoming an actual concern.

Help is on the way.

The next update to Remember?, version 4.5, extends the upper limit to 2134. It also features improved file updating code to minimize the possibility of damaged occasions and automatically retains backups copies of the last few changes you’ve made to each occasion file.

It will still not be Intel native, that will have to wait for a bone fide rewrite. However I have verified that Remember? does in fact work on Mac OS X 10.6 “Snow Leopard” if you turn on the Rosetta PowerPC support when you install/upgrade to it.

I don’t have a definitive release date for version 4.5 yet because I have a few more minor tweaks I’d like to include, but I’m getting very close. All of the above features are implemented and reasonably well tested so if you have a pressing need just let me know and I’ll get you a pre-beta version to play with assuming you are comfortable running pre-release software.

Thanks for your patience. Keep watching this site for updates.
