General / Game Views Bug Fix
« on: November 04, 2017, 09:37 PM »
Looks like I introduced a bug in the game views counter when I added the security fix. In some cases no views would be counted for a game. I've fixed and deployed changes.

Thanks to Cian for reporting this.

General / View Exploit - IF YOU CHEATED FIX YOUR GAMES
« on: October 29, 2017, 08:23 PM »
Anyone who abused this should Save AS and republish their games for which they cheated views. I'll give it 10 days. Anyone who hasn't fixed them will get all their view zeroed out.

I ask the forums help to post a list of links to games here.

I've put in place safeguards to prevent this exploit.

General / My Status
« on: October 21, 2017, 01:39 PM »

It's recently been brought to my attention that people are generally unhappy about my lack of activity on Sploder. I understand this, and not a day goes by I wish I could spend time making things for the site.

Unfortunately I'm not as young as I used to be and my tendonitis from computer-use has to be actively managed. I need to work full-time now and the only time I have to recover from RSI is on the weekends.

It's not easy when the thing you love to do causes debilitating physical pain. I hope you can understand this and I hope to be able to hop in and do the maintenance on the site periodically.

I hope that I get to the point where I can do more on the site again. In the meantime, I hope you all can continue enjoy this site and community.


General / Sploder Comments and Moderation Restored
« on: September 06, 2017, 01:10 AM »
I got tired of waiting for my Web Host and spun comments up on DigitalOcean. Yay!

Let me know if you run into any problems!!

General / Sploder Comments Down
« on: September 05, 2017, 12:50 PM »
Sploder comments and moderation are currently down as the host server had a complete failure. No ETA yet as far as when it's coming back up.

Thank you for your patience!

General / Sploder Server Problem
« on: February 01, 2017, 11:06 PM »
Sploder Members,

Looks like sometime this morning, the server was rebooted and a process did not start correctly. This caused the server to fill up with cache files. Once the server ran out of space, all write functions ceased to work. This included creating a new login session, which is why all of you were unable to log in.

Oddly, this did not set off any alarms on my end. Probably because general reading/loading of pages was working normally. I've fixed the problem and made changes that will hopefully prevent this from happening again in the future. Sorry for the inconvenience!

General / New Secure Login and Account Management
« on: December 29, 2016, 07:46 PM »
Hi all,

You may notice a change in the way login is working. All account-related features have been moved to a secure area on Sploder. This includes registration, login, account management and profile editing.

I will slowly be moving other account-related features there as time goes on. Also, please note that if you log in and then go to the main site, you'll need to re-enter your password in order to make any changes to your account.

Finally, I recommend you all switch to using password-management software like LastPass or 1Password to handle all your account credentials. That way you'll only need to memorize one good password for all of your sites.

Warmest regards and Happy New Year!

General / Regarding Hate

This is a reminder that we have a zero tolerance rule for all forms of hate speech. If perhaps you've forgotten, our stance has always been clearly stated on our Terms of Service.

If you engage in this activity, you will be permanently banned from this site. I will take steps to make sure you never, ever come back.

General / What is your favorite kind of 🍕?
« on: November 12, 2016, 09:18 PM »
I like black olives, mushrooms, onions... but sometimes I dig a nice mozzarela, roasted garlic and artichoke pizza.

General / My absence
« on: September 05, 2016, 02:53 PM »
Hey friends,

I just wanted to drop by and apologize for being inaccessible. Life has gotten quite busy for me and every spare moment I have for Sploder has gone into the new creator. I don't know if you've been following my Twitter or Vines, but it you have I hope you are as excited as I am!

I wish I could give you an ETA on release, but I can't promise a date. All I can say is that progress is going well and I am almost done with the creator portion and am now fleshing out the gameplay logic and presentation of the actual game engine (which is pretty far along as well) The only BIG missing thing right now is SOUND.

I will probably release without final sound, and have temporary or basic sounds in there for a while while I add some sort of sound effect customization.

Finally, let me extend a warm thank you to my Sploder Staff, who have the tough job of herding cats and deflecting challenging members all while remaining professional.

Your humble servant,

I just ran the database through a spin and rinse cycle, then cleaned out the lint filter.

Please let me know if you still see stains in your forumgarments.

There appears to be a hardware problem at the data center. I am awaiting a status update. They have classified this as a "Major Outage"

General / Physics is hard
« on: August 17, 2015, 07:10 PM »

implementing collision detection in 3d... fun but a little hard as far as cascading collisions.

but hey... i got an object to be carried along by a platform... so that's something, right?


General / 3d demo controls
« on: August 04, 2015, 01:42 PM »

I have questions for those of you who feel the controls are not comfortable.  Many of you said they are too slow. Can you elaborate by answering these questions?

1. Which method do you use for moving? (Only Keyboard, Keyboard for forward/ Mouse for steering, Mouse scroll, Touchpad scroll, Touch screen)

2. Do you feel the controls are too slow or too fast moving forward and backward?

3. Are the controls too slow for turning?

4. Are the controls too wide (sensitive) or too narrow for looking around?

5. Finally, note anything else in particular about the controls you feel should be corrected.
