Gameshow Maker 1.05

Under the request of several users, I’ve split the final question sounds and music from the bonus questions. While I was at it, I decided to make questions re-clickable as well (from the various uses I’ve seen, usually at least one question gets clicked by accident). Finally, the looping music can be disabled after questions start; that seemed to be another major request people kept asking for. :)

As a side note, there’s also a new Symbol font (again, not for SWF due to size). Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear to be able to input regular letters. A few users asked for this, so I assume it must be useful in some way at least. :P

SMF Notify Group

     It’s been a long time since I did any real programming hehe. :) Some of the forums I’ve been working with have trouble keeping their members updated; the admins would like to force email notification for certain member groups but there isn’t such a feature (at least not that I’m aware of).

     Technically, the script I wrote isn’t really a mod since it doesn’t modify anything. The script allows you to turn on notification of a topic for an entire membergroup. It works by letting you first select membergroups and then the members within those groups that you want to enable (or disable) notification for. It also shows the members currently subscribed to the topic. Currently, only the forum administrator would be able to use the script.

     I actually looked really hard to find a similar script before making this one but couldn’t find one. If a much better script already exists, I’d be more than happy to know about it.
See SMF Notify Group.

Best Song Yet - Cloudless

     This is probably the longest I’ve spent on any song yet (the editing and tweaking anyways). There’s a lot more variation than in my usual songs (a complete opposite to the lackluster “Blue Calm” song I made a few weeks earlier), and I actually bothered to play it at a constant tempo/beat this time… I should probably should start doing that for all my songs from now on anyways. :P


     Sadly, it’s not a Halloween/horror song. One of my friends said it sounded like Christmas, which makes it completely out of season but ah well.

     The song reminds me of drifting in the clouds… hence the name. This is another one of those songs I came up with while walking back from class one day. I seem to come up with most of my ideas that way lately. :D

     I’m actually not happy with the ending… it sounds a bit rushed and choppy to me. However, the song’s been sitting in this state for about a week, and I haven’t come up with anything better. Any suggestions would be great though.

New Song - Blue Calm

     I had this tune stuck in my head while walking back from class a few days back. The visual I somewhat saw as I was making this was mostly rain and then the ocean. It seemed calm and the water looked blue, so that’s where the name came from. It’s bad, I know. :P

Blue Calm

     I originally spent about 2 hours playing this out just to put out ideas before I forget them. Afterwards, I kind of did forget… and I haven’t really been able to pick up on it since. People tell me it’s repetitive and I’ll even admit the whole second half is just a rehash of the first (the whole song even loops), but I haven’t been able to come up with anything else to add to it. Ideas are welcome though.

     It’s somewhat of a work in progress, but not a work I think I’ll be getting back to any time soon.

Thought of the Day

I’m going to be pretty bored this summer… so I created a new section on the site, a sub-section to the Blabberbox/blog, called Thought of the Day (right-hand side of the Blabberbox page).

Here, I will just post short snippets or random quotes I make up. They can be thoughtful and enlightening, or they can just be random. I guess it’s just me being too lazy to actually write a full post so I’ll just be writing up short (or long) sentences.

Should be interesting to see what I come up with - and to see how long I can keep it up. :P
