Dogs are mental. Here’s my attempt at threatening them into submission with a newspaper.
Here’s some pretty fanart of Anna from Pineple1.
I did some hardcore runtime resource analysis of EBF5, and I found a surprising source of memory leakage and CPU spikes: The status icons! Apparently they never get deleted correctly and thousands of invisible icons build up over time. This is probably the cause of the memory leak in EBF4 too. Whoops. I should have done this a long time ago. This is the kind of tedious stuff you need to watch out for when making games.
Got some more fanart from Metyuu!
I’ve been getting a lot of fanart lately… :D
Got some fanart of the EBF guys from SunnyTheSunFlower.
Hey guys, there’s not been much news on EBF5 because I’ve been working on behind-the-scenes stuff, like debugging and translation infrastructure. I’ve got all the text in the game in neat seperate files now, so this should save me a lot of time doing translations in the long run, and I’ll probably end up doing more languages than before. I’m considering adding Chinese and Russian and maybe others. (I’m not looking for volunteers yet, this is still quite some time away)
The weather’s been unusually nice, so that’s been distracting me. Spending a lot of time at the parents’ house playing with dogs and Lego. Also the EBF Discord server is doing pretty well, there’s over 800 members already and some interesting chat topics.
Anyway, the EBF5 battle system is almost bug free! I’m gonna get Ronja to play it for a while and then I’ll release that battle demo. I’ll be annoyed if you guys find a lot of bugs, I’ve already spent so long on them…
Got some super cute fanart of Anna from Kelsuis.
