RPG Development Progress Pulse – Entry 2

Progress Pulse - Entry 2 Things have been pretty busy in real life the past couple of weeks, so I haven't had too much time for working on this. However, for this entry in the progress pulse series I'll talk about some of the challenges I had while looking at making a generic data (de)serialization API + implementation, and why I chose to make some of the decisions I did! Which Tech To Pick? I've felt burned in the past by trying to do data serialization for my game framework because it's always created a barrier for refactoring once it's in place (i.e. i change some data i need and now i have to re-make or migrate allllll my SQL data). So I was thinking about how I plan to store game state, which I have written about, and then…


Delta State Algorithm Creation Series

Delta State Algorithm Motivation This post will act as the table of contents for an algorithm I'm developing for calculating deltas between state for generic sets of data. I figured this would be an interesting series to write about so I can document my thought process, trials, errors, and successes. At the end of this I plan to share working code that implements this algorithm so that you can use it in your own work. Now that I've been not diving more into Unity3D development for my hobby programming, I'm getting to a point in game development where I need to manage state for data in a way that allows patches of state to be applied in a layered fashion. A couple of examples of this include: Applying save game state to a base game state Applying a patch to…
