At this rate, I will finish on January 4 2011 (I meant, 2012).
Sigh. My NaNo novel will take backseat for couple of days for all the apartment cleaning, moving, etc. And I was so excited about my novel! But now, I’m more excited about getting a bigger space.

Cleaning My New Old Apartment

So I’ve been spending the past few days cleaning my new old apartment. New old, being it’s new to me, but it’s old. As in it’s more than ten years old. More or less ten years worth of other people’s trash that they left behind. Interesting trash at that.

The kitchen cupboards has a juicer, a pasta maker (you know the one where you put your dough through, and it will like roll is flat for you, and cut it into pasta strips), and some other random stuff that I don’t get. And the refrigerator.

You’d be surprised at how disgusting the place where you’re supposed to keep your food can get. What I found in the freezer? Chicken liver! Like the rest of chicken innards, they disgust me. Minute maid. Frozen pulpy orange. And a Ferrero Rocher chocolate. I spend a morning cleaning the fridge. Backing soda is my friend. It can clean up all sorts of miscellaneous muck.

The cable guy is here right now, trying to make sense of all the wires the previous tenants have wired through out all the rooms. It is a mess! What a tangled wed we weave when we start going online, watch cable television, etc. It’s supposed to be a wireless age, but alas, it is an old apartment.

My dad is amazing, he flew here all the way from China to help us throw out our garbage! (he had other businesses to attend to, but great timing).

So, so far, we have got rid of most of the garbage, got DSL, cable and a phone line, moved furnitures around, mopped the floors. So far, so good. It might take a while before we actually finish settling down (we haven’t moved our stuff here yet, for one), but I think we are on the right track. Things on our to do list, include painting some of the rusty metal chairs teal (yes, teal, my sister’s current favorite color) and the peeling TV cabinet purple (my favorite color, obviously).

So far, so good.

I’ve been looking into plants to plant on my terrace of my new apartment, I Google-d vines and saw these: Wisterias… Aren’t they pretty? And purple… :)

NaNoWriMo!!!
NaNoWriMo (http://www.nanowrimo.org) stands for National Novel Writing Month, and basically what happens is, a bunch of people from all over the world, sit down and write a 50 thousand word novel for a month. 
I have been doing it for three years now, this is my fourth year. I failed miserably the first year, because I started my first job that month. The second year, I wrote a love story, about a husband and a wife, who confuses her dreams with reality. Last year, I wrote a teen novel about the secret lives of stalkers (and that was pretty much the title of the novel).
This year, my challenge for myself is to write a multilingual novel. Because I am actually multilingual, I know English, Chinese (Mandarin and Fookien) and Filipino (Tagalog). The really challenging part is writing in Chinese, because even though I speak and listen to Chinese just fine, I am actually illiterate (my reading and writing skills is only grade school level, I think). I know that probably means that not many people can read my novel. But that’s fine, because I write because I like writing.
My novel is called “The Assorted Lives of Wendy & Lisa”, it’s one story told in different ways, different points of views and different languages. There will be a Harlequin, Avon romance version of the story, a teen vampires version, and Taiwanese drama version, etc. It’s a chic lit. And I am so excited to write it.
Well, that’s it for now.

mreigen asked: hi miss purplelilgirl, your tutorial helped me so much today at work. I combined your code with what I had and I finally got a video with audio!! Thank you!! I have a question about Time_Scale (what do you set for this?) const and the audioInfoArray in your appDelegate. I just modified that code to use with one audio file only but I'm thinking to use it with multiple files just like what you did.

Hi, for time_scale I set it to 60. while my audioInfoArray just contains information about my audio files, stuff like when it should start playing and such.

TexturePacker gets a BIG FAT update

According to

This is a really big fat update for TexturePacker. I packed 25 new features inside it!

What do you get in detail?

Flash importer

Simply drag your flash files (.swf) onto TexturePacker and it extracts the images and builds a sprite sheet from them! Requires installed Flash Player Plugin.
This feature works on Windows & MacOS – Linux is currently not working well.

.pvr and .pvr.ccz QuickLook plugin on MacOS

No need to open TexturePacker to view your .pvr and .pvr.ccz files anymore. TexturePacker now contains a QuickView plugin so you can view the files right from finder!

Save defaults

Many people requested a way to save the default settings so that they don’t have to set exporter and other stuff on restarting. – Here it is! (Pro only)

Ubuntu support

Since many users build for Android I also added support for Linux – currently Ubuntu 10.x. It might still have some quirks (e.g. Flash does not yet work) but is a good start. I decided to build on Ubuntu since it seem to be the most used platform.

New Exporters

I also added a ton of new exporters such as

User interface improvements

I also added a lot of interface improvements to make work with TexturePacker easier.

  • New layout of the left side panel allowing easier change of exporter
  • Auto update sprite sheet when re-entering TexturePacker
  • Sprite highlighting
  • Reveal in Finder / Explorer
  • Preferences to change checkerboard color and hightlight color
  • New icons
  • Hotkeys
  • Backspace / delete to remove sprites
  • Dialog to select the Flash Player plugin to use
  • Drag your sprites here – to give new users a faster start
  • Allowing free choice of texture data file name
  • Fit button for zoom
  • Folders inside a smart folder are now blue
  • Auto populate file names from other names e.g. save blah.tps also sets blah.png and blah.plist

Image features

Here are some new image export features. Main function is support for flipped PVRs and RGB888 as output format.

  • Option to use flipped PVR files
  • Support for RGB888
  • Unflip flipped pvrs in viewer
  • Allow free size for PVR textures (might not work on all targets)

Other stuff

  • Rotation support for AndEngine
  • Default padding is now 2 – This effects the command line client!
  • Corona exporter uses better module concept (http://blog.anscamobile.com/ 2011/09/a-better-approach-to-external-modules/)
