@revenant every 4 or 5 years i (a person who has occasionally written c++ but never actually learned enough c++ to understand anything at all) catch a little windnow into the current state of c++ and it's a glimpse into some kind of weird postmodern satirical hellscape full of strange glittering mechanisms assembled entirely out of razor blades and crank ontological obsessiveness.
Charles Bloom just blogged a bunch on "Leviathan" compressor, new in their Oodle 2.6.0: http://cbloomrants.blogspot.com/

Surely passing library paths using forward slashes instead of backward slashes to MSVC linker won't have any effect on linking performance? Haha nope!

Boom poof! ProBuilder is part of Unity now. Edit those levels! https://blogs.unity3d.com/2018/02/15/probuilder-joins-unity-offering-integrated-in-editor-advanced-level-design/ https://mastodon.gamedev.place/media/zq4IA8BP4H2GgTwkoOg

Here's a screenshot of it running a project selected FOR NO PARTICULAR REASON. 😉
Today is a good day. DX11 feature level 9.x is the worst/leakiest "abstraction" ever, and only needed on old Windows Phone devices. Good riddance. Let's see where this goes :) https://mastodon.gamedev.place/media/vuy2j_5PMrj5PCD8VEE
Work planning. I guess by now my coworkers know my work habits :) https://mastodon.gamedev.place/media/mRgF4eREDon3CdjBXEA
We shipped modding support for Hand of Fate 2, very proud of the team. You can even play the released game in the editor to test your content. Ask me anything about modding a unity project, it's all in my head right now! http://steamcommunity.com/app/456670/workshop/
There are some useful new features in the Unity 2018.1 beta, so I'll be making some videos about them.
This one is about Unity Hub, a little tool they made to ease the pain of working with many versions of Unity.
Have you got too many versions of Unity lying around?
Do you keep opening your projects with the wrong version?

It's "almost at GGJ" since my daughter got sick Friday evening, and we actually made the game at home, did not even bother to register it properly etc. :)

I've been playing around with Rust. It makes a strong case for itself (especially for the future of high-perf programming), even if the tools aren't quite there yet & the ecosystem is young. http://blog.shivoa.net/2018/01/why-im-trying-rust-in-2018.html
Windows Runtime (aka UWP) was supposed to be modern API without any of <windows.h> horrors. It has new horrors instead! For example, this code does not compile. http://aras-p.info/blog/2018/01/19/UWP/WinRT-Headers-are-Fun-not/
