I now have seriouscyrus @ seriouscyrus.com, any inquiries regarding the projection mapping project can be directed there.
Finally! app can be registered with a code that I can generate, it was easier than I thought, and I put it off for ages.
Need to make a few final changes to the GUI, but that should be it for a first beta.
It’s carnival time here in Luzern, it’s crazy, the whole town dresses up and gets drunk for 5 days.
Just looking through my past posts and wondering how many times I thought I had almost finished the app, quite a few times it seems!
All major crashes and hangs seem to be out of the way and I’m currently implementing a registration system. The UI is tighter controlled to stop the user doing unexpected and unwanted things.
I think I’ve solved my final major crash causing bug, I feel like dancing a little jig. It’s been months poking around the same bits of code, tweaking bits here and there, one fix would cause another problem elsewhere, really demoralising, but now I can move on again!
The app is now that much closer to release, it’s useable in it’s current form, with a few quirks still there, but at least it’s reliable.
The app is so close to being finished it’s driving me crazy, couple of random bugs that don’t effect performance when it’s running. It drives me mad, it works, it works great, and I want to release a great product, but I’m struggling with occasional crashes.
I need to implement so many things, and I’m stuck with UI issues and copy protection; i have to face the fact i’m gonna have to get some help. So I’m gonna make a free buggy demo alpha version, in the hope of attracting investors/collaborators.
Another bug fixed after a week of getting nowhere, fix makes no sense, did a whole bunch of clever stuff to try and fix the problem, nothing got anywhere. But then, while subclassing methods for debugging, it finally starts working! even though the the subclass method does nothing but log a message to the console and call the super. Ugh, it makes no sense.
Phew, things are much better now, still some problems here and there, but now the app starts well, it runs well, and it shuts down properly, all major functionality in place, just a few things to fix up after the overhaul.
I feel like I’ve been here before, so crossing my fingers no other major soul crushing issues come up.
Just as I was losing hope with an ongoing critical bug, took a stab in the dark, and nailed it. Finally the app starts every time. Only put me behind for two months on one bug. I was beginning to think I’d have to rewrite everything, it might have been quicker if I had…

Really good local band.
The blog has been all about dev recently, think I’ll bring back some music occasionaly.
