Tracker Modules Don’t Work In Unity WebGL

Insider 0

As my latest Unity 3D WebGL game has been released and I’m currently working on another one, I’ve been experimenting with ways to shrink the build size. Probably the biggest contribution to the build size, from the game assets, is music, so naturally, tracker modules (mod/xm/it/ut) are a good candidate to replace Mp3/AAC/Vorbis compressed music. […]

I, if they’re cold pitching a position, expect a certain amount of information to be shared: position title? (e.g. Game-play programmer) seniority? (junior, mid, senior, lead); location?

Samsung Galaxy A7 2018 – Worst Phone I’ve Ever Owned

Insider 0

It’s pretty annoying for a phone that otherwise is packed with features to fail at something so basic: Wifi. Its constant failure to stay connected to Wifi during lock and its constant failure to reconnect afterwards, sometimes taking 10-20 tries and 10+ minutes of manually switching Wifi on/off makes this phone take the top place […]

HTTPS Transition

Insider 0

As you might have noticed, you can now access pirongames.com in its secure, HTTPS form. As a down-side of the transition, games on the secure version don’t share saved progress and settings (due to the fact that browser local storage is separate for HTTP and HTTPS). On the bright side, bad people don’t get to […]
