Stubbs the Zombie OXM Demo Release

Last week I released the Stubbs The Zombie OXM xbox demo on Assembler Games. The demo was ripped from an OXM demo disc (#54) and is easy to install. The demo features the water contamination level and does not seem to feature any content cut from the original game (at least none that I have yet to find). To play the game simply extract the game folder from the provided zip file and ftp the folder onto the location you store your games on your original Xbox.

As Stubbs The Zombie is my favorite game I was ecstatic to find a demo for the game though I was hoping for some new content. If anyone has any unreleased content or leaked content, or even early builds of Stubbs The Zombie or if anyone has any information on a Stubbs sequel (I believe some concept art was created for a sequel) please reach out to me and let me know!

Gamerations.com has launched

After much work I am finally launching Gamerations.com. What is it? It is a gaming blog that I will be running. All of the latest gaming news and gaming previews and reviews. I am currently updating it daily with new gaming news. I do have plans to do many features with much older generation games. We also plan to do streams of new and old games as well as reviews of older generation games.

Check it out now and keep checking daily: Gamerations.com

Ubuntu Basics For The Linux Noob

So last semester I took a course on writing software documentation. The class goal: to teach us students how to create good looking, well written, helpful documents and guides to using specific software. The final project: write a guide on software you use. I decided to write my guide on the operating system I had just recently switched over to Ubuntu Raring Ringtail(13.04). What started out as a basic documentation book shortly turned into a short 35 page e-book. I’ve named it Ubuntu Basics For The Linux Noob. Why? It’s a simple beginners guide to picking up Ubuntu.

Now this book is not designed for everyone. If you’ve used Linux (and especially Ubuntu) before this book is probably not for you. The book covers the very basics of the operating systems and many of it’s built in features. If you’ve never used any computer before, this book will certainly help but there are some places that may confuse you. The book is primarily designed for folks moving to Ubuntu from other operating systems such as Windows or Mac OSX.

I’m happy to finally release the book onto the internet now for the low low price of free in the hopes that whomever may find it will hopefully find it helpful. I’m happy to say that the book scored me a perfect 100/100 on the final.

The book can be read or downloaded from here

Payday 2 Save Manager

The Payday video game franchise is probably one of my all time favorites. Recently in Payday 2 though there have been many users losing their save files due to unfortunate game crashes or hackers custom LUA codes destroying non hackers games. For this, I created the Payday 2 Save Manager. The software gives a nice little UI to let users make as many backups of their saves as they’d like. Never fear losing your current progress. Create a backup! If anything ever goes wrong with your save you can use the tool to restore your backup! The tool also supports multiple Steam accounts on the same machine. Thank you to those on SPUF and SCUF for helping me test and giving me potential ways to improve the program.

Features——————————
Create Backups of your Payday 2 Save File
Restore Backups
Supports 32 and 64 bit Windows
Supports Multiple Steam Accounts

Upcoming Features———————-
Support for Steam on alternate HDD

TimerText version 1.0

Another application I have developed is called TimerText. Anyone following my github will have seen this program grow since it’s infancy into the nearly completed project it is today. TimerText allows you to choose a contact or enter whatever number you need to contact, your message and what date and time you want to send your message. On the specified date and time the program will then send your message to the specified number. This is almost the version that will be available on the Play Store. It currently has one major issue and once that bug is fixed it will be able to be found there. The software will forever remain free and open source with the APK and source fully available on Github. The release on Play Store will be the exact same software, but will cost $1, as a donation for the software. Anyone who wants it without paying may do so by downloading from Github.

Current Build Status——————————-
Timers Set and Respond to date/time occurrence
Sends Texts to users at specified date/time
Sent Messages are automatically added to conversation in messaging app
Notifications are working
Basic Queue/List is in place – will be further updated and improved
————————————————–

Known Bugs———————————–
Occasionally Messages will not be sent and no notification will appear. This bug is currently being worked on and fixed. Upon it’s fix it will be published to the Play Store.

StudyCard Beta v1 Release

Since I’m very much behind on updating the blog and am home for about a week I thought I’d finally get around to posting some of the things I’ve done since my last post, who knows how long ago.

So, first and foremost I bring you StudyCard beta.

StudyCard is an open source software I’ve developed to replace the need for using index cards as a studying tool. As of right now, StudyCard replicates that experience and with future updates, plans to add in an AutoTranslate feature and a AutoDefine feature. AutoTranslate will, in an instance in the front of the card containing text in a foreign language (not English language) it will automatically translate the text and put the English on the cards back. AutoDefine in the instance of a word, or phrase being on the front of the card with the feature enable will automatically define the word/phrase on the back of the card.

Beta V1————————-
Currently Working Features:
Add/Delete Index Cards
Edit Front and Backs of Index Cards
Saving/Loading of created IndexCards
Flipping of Card sides

Known Bugs:
None Currently

Planned For Future Update:
Auto-Translate
Auto-Define
Redesigned UI
——————————–

Please report any found bugs or issues via the Contact Page of my blog.

The Software is licensed in GPL

RandGur JS 1.0

Since I’m home, and bored I decided to take the C# application I wrote, and start porting it to the internet. RandGur JS is a random Imgur image viewer that now runs in a webbrowser! It will also be Open Source!!! (shortly) . The base of the software is in javascript with an HTML frontend. I’ve seen software like this programmed in PHP before but have yet to see it in Javascript so here is my version 1. I still have some changes and edits planned but for now it is how it is. I’ll update the post with the source once it’s completed. Anyway check it out!

Sn4k3

Sn4k3 was an awesome project back in our younger high schools days. My friend, Josh Haimson and I developed this game from the ground up, using Java. Essentially it’s a simple snake clone. Unfortunately we never got around to finishing it (although I may go back if I have free time to do some work on it), but it has all it’s core features. You start as the one circle green snake. Your food is the yellow circles that spawn. The point of the game…eat as much as you can before you die…how do you die? You’ll die by running into one of the boundaries, or by colliding into yourself. The game features four difficulties: Easy, Medium, Hard and Very Hard. My high score….182 on Hard and…. 47 on very hard… Very fun game. Unfortunately one of the things we never got around to adding was a restart menu but like I said I may go back and rebuild it for funsies.

Anyways heres the downloads:

n0t3pad – A java programmed notepad

n0t3pad was a simple program I wrote to show off simple file opening/saving functions and clipboard functions. The program is…well… A simple notepad application. It’s basic functions included file opening, file saving, copy, cut and pasting to/from clipboard. I’m too lazy to compile the program into a executable JAR so I’m simply releasing the source.

Burger King Coupon Generator

NOTE: This coupon generator may no longer work. It’s been ages since I’ve actually been to a Burger King.

On the back of every Burger King receipt is a blank line, and a phone number for a survey. Once you call the number and complete the survey the representative will then give you a coupon code which you could then write on the line. Upon bringing the receipt back to Burger King they would reward you with a free sandwich or fries or whatever the free food was. Like I said I don’t really remember anymore. I’m not even sure if the survey is still there and if it is if it’s for the same reward and using the same algorithm. Basically the algorithm was simply two letters followed by six random numbers. The two letters however were determined by whatever month it was that the survey was taken in. The program simply, runs and auto detects the month. It then just generates 6 random numbers for that months code. Simple and effective and I remember at the time of development it worked beautifully.

Anyway since I’m sharing all my old code and programs I figured this would be a fine one to share as well.
