Good news, everyone!

Black Rook is now hosted on GitHub! This should make a couple things like support or whatever easier.

There are going to be some changes around here, soon. Not terribly huge ones, just some cosmetic and under-the-covers related stuff.

As you can probably tell, the updates have been rather sparse. To tell you the truth, it is because updating this site is a pain. There have been changes to project versions and stuff, but I have not been announcing them.

However, I've been writing some better CMS software for my websites, and this will be updated to that in a while, so I won't have to tear my hair out if I have to edit anything.

Ok, that's all for now - Happy Belated New Year!

After much deliberation, I have decided that Commons requires a complete revamp, or maybe packaged into smaller libraries. It may take a while to sift through the code and figure out what is crap and what isn't crap, and figure out what to keep and what to give the axe. Needless to say, the face of that project will change completely. Once the new version of the Commons libraries is released, newer versions of the existing projects will be released that will use the newer version of Commons.

Of course, this is not to say that Commons as it stands is crap, per se - everything is still completely functional. It could just be better, is all. ;)

Also, in the future, Black Rook is planning preliminary versions of the upcoming OpenGL and OpenAL encapsulation libraries, the purpose of which would be object-orienting the OpenGL and OpenAL contexts, and well as adding some helpful utility classes, so that's something to at least look forward to.

Also Doom Struct has been updated to 1.6.2:

  • Fixed: Some versions of Doom (i.e. the "vanilla" ones) may rely on a particular lump order for entries in maps. WadIO has been changed to reflect this.
  • Fixed: Doom-compatibility checking for linedefs allowed up to 32767 sidedefs when it should have been 65535.
