Wow, I didn't even say hello! I was all woried about the account problem and basically just crashed in out of nowhere. So, here it goes:

Hello, I'm crosoft312. I used lowres coder a while ago when I was much younger. It introduced me to programming, since then I have worked with python and some js.
I mainly make 2d rpgs and platformers, along with some interactive fiction (text adventures)

Also, I'm a pretty shy introvert (admitively), sorry if I come off as rude or unthankful. I honestly don't mean it like that, I'm just a little awkward!

Anyways, enough about me! Just wanted to introduce myself!

(I really don't plan to post this much, sorry for clogging up the feed!)

When you say, you used lowres coder, do you mean original lowres, or lowres NX... if you once had the original, you can always get it back again... you can do

Anyways.... i like the community Timo has here... we all get along and help each other :)

I learned coding in the original LowRes as well

Was8bit, I used the oringinal one with pixel graphics, forgot the password to the ipad it was on, I can't access it. I never made an account before it was removed off of the app store, so I can't make one now.

You only need your App Store account to download LowRes Coder again. It’s in your list of purchased apps.

crosoft312 2021-06-02 21:55

I don't have any apple devices. (I am writing this on a windows laptop)
But if I get one in the future, I'll be sure to reinstall it!

was8bit 2021-06-03 05:37

Cool :)

The original community is rather slow, but i still like posting an occaisonal this... although i havent had time to work on things, my latest project is exploring a moving circular maze over there ;)

SP4CEBAR 2021-06-03 10:51

I didn't make an account for the original LowRes coder

was8bit 2021-06-03 16:08

As long as you had dowloaded it once, you can still reload it ... u can ask Timo about adding an account for posting purposes....

I have the original LowRes coder
And I have a few games I wanted to post

Timo 2021-06-03 19:49

Ah I think I disabled account creation because of spam, but I can enable it again.

was8bit 2021-06-04 04:19

@crosoft, community for original lowres became slow as most people came over to NX community... the NX community picked up, and OL community slowed down...

I would be posting more games for both if i had more free time... lately i have been grasping for enough sleep to survive, and only post when i cant sleep :/

SP4CEBAR 2021-06-04 07:49

Since the original LowRes Coder is no longer on the appstore, I don't think many people will be able to spam anymore

Let's go on here: https://lowresnx.inutilis.com/topic.php?id=1936 (It's already off-topic here)

was8bit, I'm really sorry about your lack of sleep.
Don't feel obliged to post here often. Take as many or as long breaks as you want.
I hope your sleep improves. I wish you the best!

SP4CEBAR 2021-06-04 19:12

I hope so too

was8bit 2021-06-05 05:21

Actually, posting here helps... what keeps me awake at night is my thoughts thinking about stuff, like whatever, it doesnt matter what, my brain keeps me awake... have had this as long as i can remember even as a young child..

... so i try different things to distract my mind...l leave tv on, run a sleep sound machine, run a sleep app, stream something online... with any of these, if i can focus my mind on the sound source i will fall asleep... but i have to switch to different things as my mind gets used to and bored with one source, then my mind will wander and start up again...

So, typing here for awhile while i eat something, then while working on some game ideas i often fall asleep with my ipad still in my hands ;)

So, its all part of the process of trying different things until something works and i fall asleep...

I can NOT handle perfect quiet... it will actually cause me to get out of bed and pace or clean or something just to break the silence...

Generally when i have time to catch up on my sleep i am OK overall... its when both work demands and family overwhelm me and i dont get that "catch up time" then the loss of sleep builds up...

fortunately i am capturing just enough catch up time to survive, but i dont have any free time ...

... but i can assure you, any time i am spending here lately is helping me forget about the stresses, and calming me down.... which then sets me up to be able to get to sleep :)

Had in a lot of free time, i would be competing with BGelais... not at their level of quality, but in amount of games, i mean... i would be posting at least one completed game each week, and one big project every month or so...

But, i am glad i can calm down here after a hectic day, so i can wind down enough to get my sleep... y'all make it easy to get along with... many thanks :D
