The strangest kind of problem
Posted by Trixter on April 18, 2014
For @party coming up in June of this year, I thought it would be fun to revisit 8088 Corruption with a spiritual sequel. I designed two new ways to improve the tech and visual quality. I came up with a new disk I/O strategy to deal with the new tech. I built a new model of handling color for it. I’ve previewed the results for both monochrome and color test material, and I liked what I saw.
One problem: I haven’t written a single line of code yet. It’s all in my head.
At night, as I fall asleep, I “pull it out” and run it through with different test material and “watch” the results.
And with the puzzle solved, I’m “done”, and I no longer have the desire to actually write the code.
