I'm hoping to have the first Alpha release of Plus Porter out in a couple of days. It won't have all the the features yet for making ports, but I'm planning for it to be able to have all of its functionality of applying ports done.
Hey there, I just wanted to say thank you for commenting on the blog post. Today, one of the bureaucrats came back and changed my user rights, so I guess I don't need an adoption request anymore. Still, thanks for your time.
So for those of you who didn't properly infer, I'm afraid that CBSR has gone wayside once again because of school work. Fortunately, this time is with a project that I'm having a blast working on. And that is PlusPorter. Also, at least this time the project keeping me busy is one that you guys will benefit from when it's done! Anyway, I'm not a super experienced Java programmer, so I'm not developing it anywhere near as quickly as I hoped I would. My new deadline is November 23. As of posting this, you can open up a CS+ directory, and the program does some light verification to ensure that it's legitimate. This then unlocks the ability to start a new port. As of right now you can set some basic properties of your mod. I've just now finished the properties window. I had a huge learning curve when making it, so there's a possibility that production might speed up, but it also might not. The application can't save any information on your hard drive yet, though.
8 years ago today, I kept repeating excitedly to myself "8days8days8days8days8days8days8days8days8days" throughout the day. I remember playing through Raiden X on our Windows 98 computer which held up okay for computer standards at the time, and when I beat it and was asked to enter my name, I put "8 days". I used to always be so excited for my birthday. I could hardly wait. When I was younger than I am now, I couldn't bear waiting to grow older. The previous 2 years, the only aspect in which I was excited for my birthday was just to get a few days to catch my breath (I'm homeschooled, so we can do things like getting our birthdays off. In my case, my birthday and a few days or the weekend surrounding it counts as our Fall break.) from the agonizingly, horrifically, and insanely busy school schedule I had during this time last year and the year before last (especially last year). Now that my school schedule this year isn't all that time consuming, I'm practically indifferent to my birthday coming in 8 days. What's happened to me?!?! D:
Now that I have finished my computer programming course, my final assignment is to make some application that does something. I have decided that I will write an application that will facilitate porting mods to Cave Story+, as well as make it able to work with partially edited sprite sheets without illegally distributing NICALiS' graphics. The only thing I need this community's help with is coming up with a name for it. Should I call it CS Porter? CS+ Porter? I'd be open to ideas. And for those of you wondering, I'm shooting to have it done in two weeks.
