Coding update – tools, improvements and (re)Learn OpenGL

It's been a while since my last post, I was on holidays and also some of the things below kept me quite busy. Here is a non exhaustive list of what I've worked on: cmake scripts: I've finally managed to make targets dependent on files that are not source, so if that text or image…

Coding update: new libraries, graphics and input

I'm still coding my way back to where I was before I decided to switch to C instead of C++. I updated the documentation with the new libs (I have to write hundreds of comments though...sigh...). Graphics The graphics library is a wrapper for OpenGL. A lot of functions are not doing much more than…

Video Game review: Terminator Resistance

Terminator Resistance Teyon (2019) I like the Terminator franchise a lot (well the first two movies are marvelous, after that it's downhill for sure, even though some things are interesting). Single-player First person shooters are among my favorite genre of games, especially on consoles (I know most people don't like it). Most Terminator games ended…

Movie review: Le Grand Restaurant

Le Grand Restaurant Jacques Besnard (1966) Still in my De Funes phase, I've re-watched a movie I haven't seen many times (for a reason).

Watching it again after a few years I was again pleasantly surprised. Charles Duchemin, editor of a prestigious culinary guide, is near retirement, and wants his…

C Code joy: the image library

I have transferred my C++ image library to C. Fortunately that wasn't too hard, and I've been able to make many improvements along the way. After the porting to C it's cleaner, way more modular, I love it. Features supported image formats:bitmap (.BMP)JPEGPNGGIF (some cases not handled like interlaced data)supported pixel formatsindexed images 1 to…

Movie review: Le Gendarme et les Gendarmettes

Le Gendarme et les Gendarmettes Jean Girault (1982) Three years after the worst episode in the series, France's favorite gendarme is back for a final movie. I hadn't seen it in a long time, and I feared this one would follow in the footsteps of its predecessor, fortunately for me I was pleasantly surprised. Four…
