    Games development and obscure football. One day I promise to combine the two.

    Gaming DIY jobs you're proud of / pleased with

    Treble Champions on the CPC was a tape game that wouldn't run on the CPC6128, because the machine had to claim a couple of extra kilobytes of RAM for the disk drivers. Because it was also written in BASIC, I was able to split it out as a multiload running from disk. Wasn't worth the effort because it was pure shite, but still...

    I think you've grossly misunderstood the plot of Terminator 2.

    PES 2019

    The more I think about Konami dropping two of the four second divisions, the more convinced I am that PES would benefit from a fantasy structure as a master league alternative. I thought that the addition of several new leagues for this season was a positive step towards a more expansive game but this is a step backwards. A four tier pyramid containing every licensed team they have, with regionalised lower levels and a world superleague at the top would be suitably in depth for my tastes. Keep the current system, present this as an alternative to choose at the beginning of the career, and watch my concerns evaporate.

    His second half was even better.

    Fucking Konami. With one hand giveth, and the other hand they direct a stream of piss into your face.

    The Game Development Thread

    Afraid I have no experience of Switch development so I don't know about a normal method. That said, based on what you posted it may be possible to force the compiler to compile the any necessary classes by instantating a single instance of them during some startup method. And if it's actual game objects you're serialising, then the compiler should pick them up ok as it knows they're needed for other stuff. As a last resort you should always be able to write the data to a binary file (or XML, JSON or something if you want a human readable format) manually.

    The Game Development Thread

    I'd say possibly, but I couldn't say for sure without trying on a Switch and seeing what happens. I suspect you'll find a couple of things by doing that and need to find workarounds, but the workarounds are usually there and hopefully not too invasive. You're unlikely to encounter anything that means porting is impossible.

    Nah, fairly sure it was older.

    What are the most varied game series?

    No, series is both singular and plural, and I'm sure PengTiki would like to know more than one.

    My girlfriend says she fell in love with me in part because of this. It's potent stuff.

    That low cross is a double tap these days. The lofted ball that used to be a single tap became an R1+circle affair. That's a move that works for any lofted ball, too. I love flicking a pass first time over a closing opponent with it, makes them look like fools.

    I invert and played through Second Sight... so I dunno what the fuck was going on back then.

    It's a theory that's not quite working out in practice though. AEK's path is Celtic followed by Vidi, whereas PAOK have had Basel, Spartak Moscow and then Benfica, all stronger teams than Celtic. Similarly, PSV only play BATE - Ajax have had Sturm Graz and Standard Liege and still play Dynamo Kyiv. A harder ask than a single tie against the Belarusian champions. The Champions Path is an easier route because the strongest leagues don't actually play in it.
