Koto Breaker

New koto track as a collab again with Waterflame from our new company.  This song takes the older Koto Cutter song I made a little over a year ago and basically kicks it up into high gear (while still keeping to koto as the source of all the sounds as much as possible).  This track actually started way back in 2020, but the production process was an absolute nightmare and dragged out for over a year.

Winter Solstice

First new track in a while and a collab with Waterflame as one of our first tracks as a company.  Funny enough it's just pure coincidence that this was actually uploaded on the winter solstice of 2021.  Happy holidays!

Jeopardy Maker for MAC

This is an old app I made back in high school that seemed to have problems on MAC in recent years after the newest OS came out.  After a lot of trial-and-error, the download should now work.  Long-story short, it needed to be distributed as a DMG and not a zip.  You can download it here: https://www.pftq.com/jeopardy/

A bit more detail for those who may run into the same problem distributing there own software on MAC - the Adobe MAC projector generated in Adobe Animate appears to have a bug ever since CS5 that causes the MAC projector (app file) to corrupt when stored in a ZIP folder.  This wasn't a problem in older versions, as the Jeopardy Maker MAC version was fine for many years after its initial release.  Right now, the solution I'm using is to create a DMG file in TransMAC and then storing the MAC projector (app file) there instead before uploading for people to download.

Afterthoughts (Piano)

Short, mellow piano improvisation from the Halloween weekend. For some reason I really like the ringing in the A# note, so I just ended up spamming that here lol

Originally wanted to add more ambience after the strings, but couldn't quite make it work.

Poker for CSharp and QLearner

Short project for fun - you can play #poker against bots as well as load up the game into QLearner and other #ai / machine learning projects.  There is even a play-blind option to play without looking at your cards if you want to play a bit crazy like me. Tongue (in all seriousness, it's good training for reading your opponents).

The game can be run standalone here:

The source code and libraries for running in QLearner and C# projects are on Github here:

This is also the same code I used to simulate a million games for the stats on winning hands here:
